The black ellipse in Figure 1 above depicts the area of the interpreted east-west trending Balmer-Confederation contact along with the locations of the completed Phase I and II drill holes.

A total of sixteen drill holes, totaling 7,041 metres were completed in the Phase II drilling program (See table 1 below). Prospective Balmer Assemblage volcanic rocks have been identified in ten of the sixteen holes completed in the Phase II program. The mafic volcanic rocks are typically highly strained, containing lenses of blue-grey silica and carbonate that are transposed with the foliation, overprinted by diopside and amphibole, and separated by ribbons of microcline.Accessoryalteration products may include biotite and sericite. Sulphide mineralization varies locally in style and abundance but tends to include pyrite-pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite+/-arsenopyrite. Visually, the mafic units are similar in character and alteration to the gold-bearing mafic rocks observed at Pure Gold Red Lake Mine.

Of note in this program is WM-21-23, which intersected a very wide package of mafic volcanic, Balmer Assemblage rocks, intersected from 290 to 540 metres depth (true thickness is not known at this time). It contains some of the most prospective geology observed on the Property to date as much of the unit contains higher strain, weak to moderate diopside replacing carbonate stringers/veining, disseminated Pyrite>Pyrrhotite>Chalcopyrite and hosts localized Arsenopyrite, minor quartz-stringers, intervals of garnet-biotite, and patchy to pervasive chlorite, amphibole, biotite, alteration.

A total of 5,803 samples were collected in the Phase II program. Assay results were previously reported for holes WM-20-08 through WM-20-12 (see news release of February 9, 2021). Once all the final assays have been received from the Phase II program, a complete summary and interpretation of the results will be released.

About the West Madsen Gold Project

Covering 5,862 hectares in the heart of the Red Lake Camp, the West Madsen Project is comprised of the original Block A and B claim groups, where GoldON has the right to earn a 100% interest through an option agreement with Great Bear Resources (see news release of May 28, 2019); the Flat Lake and Maden-Medicine Stone claim groups that GoldON acquired a 100% interest in from Bounty Gold (see news release of January 7, 2021); and claims GoldON acquired via staking in December (see Red Lake regional map).

The West Madsen Project is contiguous with the Pure Gold Red Lake Mine property, where they poured first gold on December 29, 2020 and are ramping to commercial production capacity (see Pure Gold's news release of March 31, 2021). Pure Gold's reserves and resources are hosted in a seven-kilometre-long gold system that follows the major crustal break or contact between the Balmer and Confederation assemblages. This same Balmer-Confederation contact has been exposed in outcrop 1.6 kilometres (km) west of the Pure Gold property boundary and is interpreted to continue for ~8 km across Block A of GoldON's property.

QA/QC and Core Sampling Protocols

Drill core was logged and sampled in a secure core storage facility located in Red Lake Ontario. Core samples were cut in half, using a diamond cutting saw, and are analyzed at Activation Laboratories Ltd. (Actlabs) in Thunder Bay, ON. All samples are analyzed for gold using a standard 50g Fire Assay-AA technique. Samples returning over 10.0 g/t gold are analyzed utilizing standard 50g Fire Assay-Gravimetric methods. Certified gold reference standards and blanks are routinely inserted into the sample stream, as part of GoldON's quality control/quality assurance program (QAQC). No QAQC issues have been noted during this program.

5 Gold Stocks to Watch in 2022

5 Gold Stocks to Watch in 2022

Click here to read the previous gold stocks to watch article.

The first half of 2022 is over, and like most metals, gold has had an interesting ride.

The yellow metal has been caught up in diverse headwinds and tailwinds, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Russia’s war in Ukraine and the battle against inflation being key factors.

Aggressive rate hikes from the US Federal Reserve have spurred fears of a recession, driving investors to liquidate some of their gold holdings. Going forward, Trading Economics analysts have said they expect “further downside for bullion as investors continue to de-risk due to inflation and growth concerns.”

APC-1, which is the first ever diamond drill hole to test the Apollo target (“Apollo”), was collared approximately 600 metres southeast of the previously announced Olympus discovery hole that assayed 302 metres @ 1.11 g/t gold equivalent (see release dated March 15, 2022). Apollo is one of eight porphyry-related targets situated within a three-by-four-kilometre cluster area generated by the Company through grassroots exploration. As part of its fully funded 20,000 metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at Guayabales, with two turning at Apollo and one turning at the Trap target.
