Red Lake North Extension is underexplored and host to seismic structural characteristics similar to the Red Lake Gold Camp and the LP Fault of Great Bear's Dixie Gold Project

GoldON Resources Ltd. (TSXV: GLD) ("GoldON" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Red Lake North property (the "Property") located in the Red Lake Mining District of Northwestern Ontario.

The Property is comprised of nine contiguous mining claims covering 3,347 hectares (ha) and is located approximately 65 kilometres (km) north of the town of Red Lake. (see Figure 1). Access is excellent via Nungesser Road, an all-weather road that runs within 1.5 km of the northwestern corner of the Property and connects to Red Lake.

The Property is hosted within the newly termed "Red Lake Extension" that is a volcanic-sediment band of rocks that stretches over 100 km and connects with the McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt. Age determinations (by Sanborn et al., 2004 at 2.94 Ga) suggest the belt is related to the Balmer Assemblage which is host to the majority of gold mines in the Red Lake Camp. A recent study by the Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines - Ontario Geological Survey (OGS) (see Recommendations for Exploration 2020-2021) suggests that a seismic pronounced structure along this belt termed the "E1" is similar in nature and significance to the Red Lake gold mines and the LP Fault of Great Bear's Dixie Gold Project (see Figure 2).

Preliminary mapping of the upper Red Lake Extension completed by Buse (2007) identified felsic and volcanic rocks, felsic to mafic intrusive rocks, and metasedimentary rocks. Buse (2007) also identified a shear zone which corresponds to the hypothetical location of the deep-tapping E1 seismic structure. An overburden sampling program by Agnico Eagle Canada Ltd. (see Figure 3), provides the only assessment report filed within this region (Villeneuve and Girard 2010). This overburden sampling program identified several anomalous overburden gold values stretching from the Berens Lake southward for 35 km. Numerous overburden samples from the 95th percentile to over the 99th percentile in gold are dotted throughout this belt (AFRI 20008369).

Under the terms of the option agreement, GoldON can acquire a 100% interest in the Property for cash payments totaling $109,000 over two years ($27,000 upon regulatory acceptance, $36,000 on the first anniversary, and a final payment of $46,000 on the second anniversary); and the issuance of 90,000 common shares over two years (30,000 upon regulatory acceptance, 30,000 shares on the first anniversary and 30,000 shares on the second anniversary). The vendor will retain a 1.5% net smelter returns royalty, of which the Company may repurchase 0.5% for $600,000.

"While our focus remains on the drilling program in progress at West Madsen, this seismic pronounced structure along the Red Lake Extension with similarities to the LP Fault and the Red Lake gold mines provides a new and exciting area to investigate," said Mike Romanik president of GoldON. "This type of structural and geological intuitiveness could lead to new discoveries in an underexplored volcanic-sedimentary belt."

Gerardo Del Real, co-owner of Resource Stock Digest and Digest Publishing, said the metal's performance has been disappointing for those in the US, but the story is different elsewhere.

"Gold has actually behaved beautifully as a currency hedge for most of the other currencies," he said.

5 Top Weekly TSX Performers: Signal Gold Up on Production Results, New Drill Targets

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 19,075.48 early last Friday (July 22) morning.

The index was on the rebound last week and on track for a weekly gain, although a decline in oil prices was expected to put pressure on energy stocks. It closed the period at 18.983.6.

Gold was steady at the end of the trading week, holding at the US$1,700 per ounce level after hitting a one year low on Thursday (July 21). Silver was hovering around the US$18 per ounce mark as the US dollar remained strong.

5 Top Weekly TSXV Performers: Positive Intercepts Push Western Alaska Shares Higher

After slipping to a year-to-date low of 584.43 on July 15, the S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) trended higher last week, ending the five day session at 617.57.

The index benefited from better-than-expected May retail sales, which rose 2.2 percent. Growing sales across eight of 11 sectors, led by the gasoline and auto sector, exceeded the 1.6 percent rise economists had initially called for.

Following a turbulent June that rattled North America’s largest indexes, July has seen a rebound despite swelling inflation. Some consolidation in commodities prices has also created buying opportunities for investors.
