Gold

Canex Metals Inc. ("CANEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results for 4 drill holes from the Company's ongoing reverse circulation drilling program designed to expand oxide gold mineralization at the Gold Range Project, Arizona

Highlights

  • Hole GR21-57 was a 50 metre step out to the southwest on the Excelsior zone and returned the longest continuous zone of mineralization encountered on the Gold Range property to date, intersecting 1.0 g/t gold over 59.45 metres starting from surface including 1.4 g/t gold over 32 metres. The zone remains open for expansion.
  • Hole GR21-59 from the central part of the historic Excelsior Mine returned 1.8 g/t gold over 19.8 metres, including 4.1 g/t gold over 7.6 metres, and drilling in this area has extended mineralization 75 metres down dip where it remains open.
  • Hole GR21-58from the central part of the Excelsior zone returned 0.4 g/t gold over 33.5 metres.
  • To date 30 holes of a planned 50 hole program are complete, and drilling is expected to extend through January, 2022.
  • Steady drill results are expected to be released through Q1 of 2022.

To date 30 reverse circulation drill holes have been completed at Gold Range as part of an ongoing program expected to extend through January. Currently twenty holes have been completed at the Excelsior zone and 10 have been completed at Eldorado. Drilling between the Excelsior and Eldorado zones and the testing of additional exploration targets is scheduled for January.

The Excelsior zone has now been tested over a strike length of 350 metres, over widths of 100 metres, and to depths exceeding 100 metres. Assay results for holes GR21-54, and GR21-57 to 59, all from the Excelsior zone, have been received and are presented here. A drill hole location map is shown on Figure 1, cross section D-D' with holes GR21- 54 and 57 is shown on Figure 2 and cross section G - G' with holes GR21-58 and 59 is shown on Figure 3.

Hole GR21-57 is a 50 metre step out on the southwest side of the Excelsior zone. The hole intersected 1.0 g/t gold over 59.45 metres starting from surface and represents the longest continuous zone of gold mineralization encountered on the property to date with near continuous mineralization from the start to the end of the hole. Hole GR21-57 encountered significant mineralization withing the footwall of the Excelsior Vein and opens up a wide zone of near surface mineralization potentially extending further northeast (see Figure 2). This 59.45 metre interval includes nine isolated 1.52 metre wide samples containing only anomalous gold. If these 9 samples are excluded from the interval the zone returns 1.3 g/t gold over 45.7 metres. Hole GR21-57 also returned high grade intervals including 3.7 g/t gold over 6.1 metres and 9.5 g/t gold over 1.52 metres. This sizeable mineralized zone remains open for expansion to the east and to depth. Hole GR21-54 tested the northwest side of section D-D' and returned anomalous gold with narrow mineralized intercepts, potentially bounding mineralization in this direction.

Holes GR21-58 and GR21-59 tested the central part of the Excelsior zone and successfully extended mineralization over 75 metres down dip where the zone remains open. Hole GR21-59 returned high grades of 1.8 g/t gold over 19.82 metres, including 4.1 g/t gold over 7.63 metres. Hole GR21-58 returned a broad interval grading 0.4 g/t gold over 33.54 metres and suggests the mineralized zone might widen with depth in the central Excelsior area (see Figure 3).

Dr. Shane Ebert, President of the Company stated, "The long intercepts encountered in holes GR21-57 and 58 are starting to highlight the size potential of the bulk tonnage target at Excelsior with the zone showing excellent expansion potential along the northeast trend of mineralization. In addition to the broad envelopes of material with grades around 0.5 to 2 g/t gold, it is very encouraging that we consistently see higher grades within the core of the system, as grade can certainly be a key driver of value in these heap leach targets".

Drilling Summary

Thirty holes have been completed during the ongoing drill program at Gold Range for a total of 3014 metres drilled (9890 feet). The drill program is anticipated to consist of around 50 holes and 5000 metres of drilling and could be complete around the end of January.

Finalized results for 4 holes have been received and released. Addition results will be released in batches over the next months as they are received and interpreted. The current drill program is designed to test the expansion potential and continuity of the Excelsior, Eldorado, and Malco zones, and test additional exploration targets on the property.

Quality Control

Reverse circulation drill cuttings were collected in numbered cloth sample bags from 5 foot (1.52m) intervals during drilling and were picked up from site and analyzed by Skyline Assayers and Laboratories in Tucson, Arizona (which is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited). A 1000g pulp was prepared and gold was assayed using a 50g fire assay with an atomic absorption finish (method FA-01-50g). Gold samples greater than 5 g/t are redone using a 50g fire assay method with a gravimetric finish (method FA-02 50g). Twenty-four additional elements were analyzed using a multi acid digestion and inductively coupled plasma (method TE-4). The Company included certified reference standards, blanks, and duplicates in every sample batch and then checked to ensure proper quality assurance and quality control prior to releasing the data.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Slumps, Bitcoin Crash Spurs "Crypto Winter" Calls

- YouTubeyoutu.be

We're wrapping up what's been yet another bumpy week for gold.

The yellow metal started at around US$1,870 per ounce, but by the time of this writing on Friday (May 13) morning, it had declined to just below the US$1,810 level.

Diverse factors have been at play in the market this week, including major strength in the US dollar, which reached its highest point in 20 years early in the period. The latest Consumer Price Index data was also released — it shows an increase of 0.3 percent month-on-month and an 8.3 percent rise year-on-year.

TomaGold starts an induced polarization survey on the southern portion of the Obalski property

TomaGold Corporation (TSXV: LOT) (OTCQB: TOGOF) (" TomaGold " or the " Corporation ") is pleased to announce that it has retained the services of Abitibi Geophysics of Val-d'Or to conduct an induced polarization (IP) survey over the southern portion of its 100%-owned Obalski property, located 2 km south of Chibougamau, Quebec. In preparation for the survey, the Corporation has cut an additional 9 km of lines covering the southern portion of the property.

In December 2021, Abitibi Geophysics conducted an IP survey and produced a preliminary report that demonstrated the presence of large geophysical anomalies to the west and south of the Obalski deposit, right at the edge of the survey grid. The same report also indicated that the geophysical coverage was insufficient, leading the Corporation to undertake this new survey and carry out linecutting during the winter of 2021-22.
