District Scale property of unexplored Balmer Assemblage lithologies similar to those that host the Red Lake Gold Camp

GoldON Resources Ltd. (TSXV: GLD) ("GoldON" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the acquisition via staking of a 100% interest in the McInnes Lake property (the "Property") in northwestern Ontario.

Located approximately 100 kilometres (km) east of the Ontario-Manitoba border and 117 km north of the town of Red Lake, the Property is composed of 31 contiguous mining claims (577 cells) totaling approximately 11,424 hectares. The Property is 29 km long and up to 8.5 km wide.

The McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt lies within the North Caribou Terrane of the Superior Province. Deep penetrating seismic studies north from the English River domain through the Uchi domain into the Berens River Complex of the North Caribou Terrane have shown that the gold deposits of the Red Lake camp and gold deposits along the LP Fault, recently discovered by Great Bear Resources, are associated with deep crustal-scale features.

According to seismic survey interpretations by Zang and Calvert 2006, the McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt is interpreted to lie along a northern extension of a deep crustal E1 extensional shear zone. This has geological and mineralization implications for fluid and magmatic pathways for various precious and base metal deposit models.

The McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt is comprised of a volcanic-sediment package of rocks representing a back-arc environment 'sandwiched' in between two opposing granitic masses. Age-dating of the McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt volcanic rocks are 2.93-2.97 billion years old representing Balmer Assemblage aged lithologies (OGS Map P3589). The Balmer Assemblage is host to most of the current gold resources and historical gold production in the Red Lake Greenstone Belt.

"Based on the association of these deep crustal-scale features to the deposits of the Red Lake Camp, we took a more regional approach to find similar structural pronouncements that led us to the McInnes Lake Greenstone Belt," said Mike Romanik president of GoldON. "This gives us a rare opportunity to control an entire belt that has seen very limited exploration; we are proceeding with a detailed compilation of all historical data to plan our initial fieldwork program."

5 Top Weekly TSXV Performers: Gold Explorers Find Support as Commodities Prices Fall

Major markets were on course for their first weekly gain in a month last Friday (June 24), while the S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) began to claw back losses seen late Thursday (June 23).

Dipping to a five day low of 623.48 overnight, Canada’s junior index moved to 637.83 after the morning bell. It ultimately closed the period slightly higher at 647.33.

Growing recession concerns were bolstered last week after reports that Canada’s inflation rate rose to a 39 year high of 7.7 percent in May. These fears are mounting below the border as well, and have been reflected in the plunging value of copper, a base and industrial metal heavily that is correlated to economic growth.

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Global central bank gold reserves top 35,500 metric tons (MT), approximately one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. The vast majority of central bank gold holdings were acquired in the last decade, when national banks became net buyers of the yellow metal.

Central banks purchase gold for a number of reasons: to mitigate risk, to hedge against inflation and to promote economic stability. In its most recent annual survey released in June 2022, the World Gold Council (WGC) said that 61 percent of central bankers expect global gold reserves to increase over the next 12 months. Nearly three-quarters of respondents cited the precious metal’s “long-term store of value” as a guiding factor in gold purchases.

Central banks added 463 MT of gold to their vaults in 2021, signaling a significant turnaround in demand after the 255 MT decade low experienced in 2020.

VIDEO — Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for Gold

Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for

The US Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 basis points last week in its ongoing fight against inflation, amping up its efforts to tame prices and leaving market watchers wondering what's next.

Speaking just ahead of the central bank's meeting, Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management, said usually the Fed starts out hawkish and then backs off. But this time around the opposite is happening.

This is due to various factors, but US President Joe Biden's recent meeting with Fed Chair Jerome Powell is among them — in their discussion, Biden expressed that inflation is the Fed's responsibility.
