Property is structurally conducive for gold mineralization with a deep-seated first order shear that appears to have a network of second order structures

GoldON Resources Ltd. (TSXV: GLD) (FSE: 6NR2) (OTC Pink: NCMBF) ("GoldON" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an overview of the geological data compilation and reinterpretation study completed by Orix Geoscience on its Red Lake North gold property (the "Property"). Acquired in February 2021, the 3,347-hectare Property is located in the Red Lake Mining District approximately 65 kilometres (km) north of the town of Red Lake (see Figure 1).

The Property has seen little historical exploration with only one registered assessment file from a 2009 regional overburden sampling program conducted by Agnico Eagle Mines that included 123 till samples from the Property of which several assayed >95 percentile for anomalous gold.

Orix Geoscience was engaged to complete a structural and geological study integrating all historical lithology and geochemistry data with new data from GoldON's recently completed heliborne high-resolution magnetometer (MAG) survey. The result of the Orix study is a far better understanding of the geological and structural framework of the Property that is acutely demonstrated in the comparison of maps from the Ontario Geological Survey (OGS), Open File Report 6210 (OFR 6210) of 2007 and the new Orix study (see Figure 2).

Results of the Orix data compilation and reinterpretation study are as follows:

  1. A vastly improved geological map that has turned what was previously interpreted as a predominant felsic intrusive suite into a concise stratigraphic and folded layering of various volcanic, ultra-mafic, and felsic intrusive lithologies.

  2. A prominent deformation/shear zone from 100-750 metres wide is interpreted to be the northern extension E1 structure interpreted by Zeng and Calvert, 2006.

  3. A D1 deformation event interpreted by north-striking units with regional flattening foliation parallel to the bedding, and stratigraphy-parallel magnetic lineaments correlate highly with narrow low-magnetic zones that can be interpreted as early faults and shear zones.

  4. A D2 deformation event recognized by F2 north-northwest-trending, tight to isoclinal folds within the interpreted sedimentary rocks and mafic volcanics; as well as northwest and north-northwest-striking faults and shear zones that crosscut the lithological units and display locally dextral horizontal offset.

  5. Narrow bands of high magnetic chemical metasedimentary rocks (possibly iron formation), undifferentiated with mafic volcanics are evidently folded by F2. Folded iron formation gold hosted deposits are common in Archean greenstone belts (Musselwhite, Pickle Lake, and Geraldton gold camps).

  6. Sample distribution from the 2009 overburden sampling program by Agnico-Eagle, does not cover the newly interpreted mafic to intermediate volcanics and possibly metasedimentary rocks. However, considering the ice-flow direction, some anomalous samples could be associated with D2northwest-striking structures (Figure 3).

Orix is recommending a prospecting program with a focus on structural geology is recommended to further trace prospective units, contacts and structures possibly associated with anomalous gold samples, and collect structural observations to help verify the reinterpretation.

About the Red Lake North Property:

The Property is hosted within a volcanic-sediment band of rocks newly termed the "Red Lake Extension" that stretches over 100 km from Red Lake north to the McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt. A recent study by the Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines - 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 Mine Complex and the LP Fault of Great Bear Resources' Dixie Gold Project.

A similar structural environment seems to exist on the Property where a deep-seated first-order shear appears to have a network of second-order structures. These are important structural shear zones that are common hosts to orogenic gold deposits (Feng and Kerrich, 1992).

Additionally, the E1 extensional fault is interpreted to extend north of Red Lake along several slivers of greenstone belts that host Balmer Assemblage aged rocks (OFR 6210) (see news release of June 15th, 2021). The Balmer Assemblage is host to most of the gold mines in the Red Lake Camp.

Initial Inferred Mineral Resource Of 500,000oz At 5g/T Sets Up Labyrinth as Significant High-Grade Project

Outstanding potential for further growth with Resource open in all directions and high-grade mineralisation already intersected well outside the Resource boundaries

Astra Intersects 4.5 G/T Over 9.0 Metres, Extending Mineralization at Depth at Pampa Paciencia Project, Chile

Astra Exploration Inc. ( TSXV: ASTR) (OTCQB: ATEPF) ("Astra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of the Phase II drilling program at its Pampa Paciencia gold-silver project located in Northern Chile.

Drill Highlights:
  • PPRC-22-45 intersected 4.5 g/t gold equivalent (AuEq) over 9.0 metres, including 12.7 g/t AuEq over 3.0 metres
  • PPRC-22-49 intersected 3.17 g/t gold equivalent over 3.0 metres, including 8.2 g/t gold equivalent over 1.0 metre

"Drilling at Pampa Paciencia continues to produce evidence of a large, mineralized epithermal system concealed by shallow gravel cover." Stated Brian Miller, President, CEO of Astra. "With limited drilling we have discovered three shoots of high-grade mineralization over significant widths and have defined over two kilometres of vein strike length, all within an area which represents less than 10 percent of the total project. Our team's targeting methods have been highly successful at discovering new veins concealed by the shallow cover and data indicates the potential for the district to contain several additional kilometres of concealed veins – all which would have the potential to host additional shoots of mineralization."

Top Stories This Week: Gold Takes Post-Rate Hike Tumble, Powell Projects Pain

Top Stories This Week: Gold Weathers Latest Rate Hike, Powell Projects

Gold remained near lows not seen in over two years ahead of this week's US Federal Reserve meeting.

Trading as high as US$1,686 per ounce ahead of the event, which ran from Tuesday (September 20) to Wednesday (September 21), gold sank as low as US$1,658 in the immediate aftermath before rebounding to the US$1,670 level.

Friday (September 23) brought an end to the yellow metal's fairly steady showing, with gold falling to about US$1,640.

Trump and the Gold Standard

Trump and the Gold Standard

The gold standard hasn’t been used in the US since the 1970s, but when Donald Trump was president there was some speculation that he could bring it back.

Rumors that the gold standard could be reinstated during Trump’s presidency, which ran from 2017 to 2021, centered largely on positive comments he made about the idea. Notably, he suggested that it would be “wonderful” to bring back the gold standard, and a number of his advisors were of the same mind — Judy Shelton, John Allison and others supported the concept.

With Trump now out of office, is the US likely to return to the gold standard? And what would it mean if that happened? Read on to learn what the gold standard is, why it ended, what Trump said about bringing it back — and of course what could happen if it ever came into play again.
