Cross River Completes Phase 1 Field Work at Manitou, Shabu, and Dent-Jackson; Select Grab Samples up to 126 g/t Au at Shabu Gold Project, NW Ontario, Canada

Cross River Ventures Corp. (CSE: CRVC) (FSE: C6R) (the "Company") is pleased to update shareholders on the progress of the 2021 exploration work at its portfolio of gold projects, located in NW Ontario, Canada.

Phase one summer exploration programs at the Company's Manitou, Shabu and Dent-Jackson projects have been completed. Rock samples from outcrop, float, and historic mine dumps on all properties returned high-grade gold, including:

  • Shabu: 126 grams-per-tonne ("g/t") gold ("Au"), 8.28 g/t Au, and 2.73 g/t Au
  • Dent-Jackson: 17.8 g/t Au, 13.2 g/t Au, and 8.43 g/t Au
  • Manitou: 26.7 g/t Au, 24.6 g/t Au, and 15.5 g/t Au

The mineralization is associated with open-ended prospective structures that remain under explored. The Cross River technical team are currently evaluating these results including proposed work plan for follow up exploration.

Manitou - Phase 1 Summary & Results

Bayside Geoscience Inc. of Thunder Bay was contracted by Cross River Ventures to complete the reconnaissance mapping, prospecting, and sampling work at the Manitou property located in the Eagle-Wabigoon-Manitou Lakes greenstone belt, 40km south of Dryden. The field team completed a 16-day program at the recently expanded Manitou Gold property (6,750 Ha), focussing on assessing gold-bearing structures identified through the Company's data compilation process. The field campaign targeted the south-western portion of the property hosting the Reliance Shear Trend and Queen Alexandria-Bird Island trend (see Company news release dated May 13, 2021).

A total of 83 rock samples were sent to ALS Laboratories for analysis, returning gold values ranging from nil to 26.70 g/t Au. Table 1 shows assay results for rock samples containing >0.1 g/t Au. The field program was successful in locating and assessing all historic showings of interest, most notably the Queen Alexandria Shaft, which has recorded minor historic gold production from 1904 (MDI52F07SW00008). The Company's Phase 1 sampling identified high-grade gold in the area with float samples collected from rubble surrounding the historic shafts returning 26.70 g/t Au, 24.60 g/t Au, and 15.50 g/t Au. There is no record of historic drilling in the vicinity of the Queen Alexandria Shaft. Field work also confirmed the presence of open-ended NE trending shear zones associated with gold and identified numerous areas of interest for follow-up. See Table 1 and Figure 1 for a sample locations and select assay results.

Shabu - Phase 1 Summary & Results

Bayside Geoscience completed a 14-day prospecting, mapping, and sampling campaign on the Shabu Gold property located within the Birch-Uchi Greenstone Belt, 70km northeast of the town of Red Lake. The program was designed to assess historic showings, enhance property-scale mapping, and prospect areas of the property with no documented historic data. The crews were able to cover a lot of ground and successfully located all known historic showings and occurrences, as well as finding new areas of gold mineralization.

A total of 191 rock samples were sent to ALS Laboratories for analysis, returning gold values ranging from nil to 126 g/t Au. Table 2 shows assay results for rock samples containing >0.1 g/t Au. Highlights of the program include: 1) Identifying a new area of mineralization that has not been previously documented, including 2.73 g/t Au and 1.51 g/t Au hosted in strongly foliated, ankerite altered conglomerate, and 2) Follow-up of the high-grade Flint Rock Mines vein returned 126 g/t Au, 8.28 g/t Au, and 1.61 g/t Au in EW trending quartz veins. Significant assay results are listed in Table 2, and sample locations are plotted in Figure 2.

Dent-Jackson - Phase 1 Summary & Results

Bayside also completed a 7-day prospecting, mapping, and sampling campaign on the Dent-Jackson Gold property located within the Birch-Uchi Greenstone Belt, 60km northeast of the community of Ear Falls. The program was designed to follow-up historic high-grade showings and extend the strike of known mineralization, particularly at the Cariboo Vein and East Little Woman Lake ("ELWL") gold occurrences (discussed in New Release dated January 28, 2021). Field crews discovered evidence of extensive historic surface work in the area (stripping, trenching, pits, etc.).

A total of 113 rock samples were sent to ALS Laboratories for analysis, returning gold values ranging from nil to 17.8 g/t Au. Table 3 shows assay results for rock samples containing >0.1 g/t Au. Highlight samples collected during the program include 13.2 g/t Au, 3.99 g/t Au, and 1.57 g/t Au sampled in outcrop and local float boulders at the Cariboo Vein, and 17.8 g/t Au, 2.66 g/t Au, and 1.63 g/t Au sampled in outcrop and local float boulders at the ELWL showing. Mineralization at both locations is open-ended. Significant assay results are listed in Table 3, and sample locations are plotted in Figure 3.

VIDEO — Nick Santiago: Gold Can Still Pull Back to US$1,500 Before All-time High

The gold price has been on the rise for the last few months, but Nick Santiago, CEO and chief market strategist at InTheMoneyStocks.com, still believes a big pullback to the US$1,500 per ounce level is possible.

"I'm not bearish gold at the moment, but if I do get a sell signal, I think the next leg down takes you to that US$1,500 level, which would be the ultimate buy area," he explained to the Investing News Network. "I think that's going to be your chance to really get into gold for the long term. And then I do think gold ultimately breaks out to a new all-time high."

In terms of exactly how high gold could go in 2023, Santiago said he doesn't expect US$5,000 or US$10,000 like some market watchers are projecting. However, he does see the high US$2,000s, or possibly even US$3,000, as possible.

VIDEO — EB Tucker: Gold, Silver Price Levels to Watch, 2023 Investing Strategies

With the new year ahead, "Why Gold? Why Now?" author EB Tucker shared his thoughts on gold and silver, saying that US$2,000 per ounce and US$30 per ounce are important levels for investors to watch.

"US$2,000's got to be a 2023 story," he told the Investing News Network when asked if gold could reach that key price this year. "The way it looks right now, you're $60 away. I think it could happen fast."

Pointing to gold's rise of about US$300 since early November, Tucker said that the futures market sets the spot price, and activity in that arena has stopped weighing on the yellow metal over the last several months.
