Goldplay Mining Inc. (TSXV:AUC) (USOTCQB:AUCCF), (Frankfurt:9FY), (the "Company" or "Goldplay"),is pleased to announce results from the 2021 field program completed on the Scottie West Project, (located in the Golden Triangle of BC


  • Rock sample assaying: 5.90 grams per tonne ("gpt") Gold and 155 gpt Silver on the SE Exposure Nunatak.
  • Rock sample assaying: 5.29 gpt Gold on the Leduc NE Ridge.
  • Rock sample assaying: 2.19 gpt Gold and 119 gpt Silver on the Leduc East Central Ridge.
  • Rock sample assaying: 0.95 gpt Gold, 91.87 gpt Silver, and 2.77% Zinc on the East Border Nunatak.

Catalin Kilofliski, Goldplay Mining President & CEO stated: "The Scottie West Project is located amongst some impressive neighbors including Pretium's Brucejack Mine, as well as the past producer Granduc and Silback Premier Mines. Recent success on the neighboring Scottie Gold Project bodes well for the potential of the area. Goldplay was the first company to complete a comprehensive exploration program on the Scottie West Project. For an initial first pass, the geological team has identified and discovered some encouraging Gold and Silver mineralization that the Company believes warrants further investigation and additional work."

The 8,394-hectare Scottie West Project is located in the prospective Golden Triangle of British Columbia, 25 km north-northwest of the deep-water port of Stewart, BC and 7 km west of the Granduc Road. The Project is optioned from Coast Copper Corp. (formerly Roughrider Exploration (TSXV:COCO)).

Goldplay's initial exploration work has resulted in the discovery of several multi gram Gold assays in both grab samples and channel samples from the SE Exposure Nunatak, the Leduc NE Ridge and the Leduc East Central Ridge (figure 1).

Figure 1 - Scottie West Property in Relation to the Scottie Gold Mine and the Granduc Mine

The SE Exposure Nunatak (figure 2,below) has the highest Gold assay with a grab sample assaying 5.9 gpt Gold, occurring within quartz-carbonate veins with pyrite and arsenopyrite. Follow up channel sampling of the original discovery has yielded 1.39 gpt Gold over 1.3 metres ("m"). A second zone was also discovered 95 m to the north with a grab sample of 4.59 gpt Gold and channel samples of 2.08 gpt Gold over 1.2 m and 1.78 gpt Gold over 1.2 m. Table 1 highlights some of the results. East-northeast and north-south trending structures appear to be important features controlling mineralization. The Nunatak consists of mostly bedded volcaniclastic and epiclastic rocks consisting of siltstone, ash and lapilli tuff. Also noted was mudstone, agglomerate and mafic coherent volcanic flows. The stratigraphy is cut by numerous intermediate dykes. Gossanous biotite-pyrrhotite hornfelsing occurs around the dykes and is especially evident in the mudstone units. Talus fines sampling has identified numerous targets on the Nunatak which also coincide with gossanous alteration zones identified in both satellite imagery and on the ground.

Table 1 - Highlights from SE Exposure Nunatak

The Leduc NE Ridge yielded assays of up to 5.29 gpt Gold. A composite sample taken across 5 m of pervasive silicification and quartz veining within a major NE structure also assayed 1.00 gpt Gold. Channel samples, 1 metre across, taken from what was described as a "silicified cap" within lapilli tuff fragmental volcanic are all strongly anomalous in Gold as well. These "silicified cap" rocks occur proximal to the major NE structure identified above. The structure is a compelling target due to the size and degree of silica alteration with coincident anomalous Gold within the structure and surrounding silicified volcanic. The structure appears to mark the contact between mafic and intermediate volcanic fragmental to the northwest and conglomerates to the southeast. Table 2 highlights results from the Leduc NE Ridge.

Table 2 - Highlights from Leduc NE Ridge

The Leduc East-central Ridge also yielded assays of up to 2.19 gpt Gold and 119 gpt Silver within NE trending fault zones containing quartz, sericite and pyrite alteration, and chalcopyrite and sphalerite mineralization. Table 3 highlights results from the Leduc East-central Ridge. The Ridge is immediately south of the Leduc NE Ridge and consists of predominantly epiclastic conglomerate. Pillow basalt occurs on the west end of the ridge. It is speculated that the conglomerates and pillow basalts might be related to the Eskay Rift however there is not enough evidence to confirm such a speculation. Intrusive rocks believed to be part of the Eocene Boundary Stock occur at the south end of the ridge.

Table 3- Highlights from Leduc East-central Ridge

The East Border Nunatak consists of a mixed package of coherent andesitic and dacitic volcanic and associated volcaniclastic, believed to be part of the Lower Jurassic Hazelton Group. The Eocene Boundary Stock occurs at the southern end of the Nunatak and as dykes within the Hazelton Group rocks. Malachite and hydrozincite were noted in numerous locations and are hosted within both volcanic and intrusive rocks and associated fractures and faults. One grab sample assayed of up to 0.95 gpt Gold, 91.9 gpt Silver, 2.77% Zinc and 0.85% Lead. Another sample assayed 0.27% zcopper. Table 4 highlights the East Border Nunatak samples.

Table 4 - Highlights from East Border Nunatak

In the NW and SW Scottie areas, the geology consists of bedded, schistose to weakly gneissic epiclastic sandstone and argillite as well as mafic pyroxene phyric coherent volcanic flows believed to be part of the Late Triassic Stuhini Group. These rocks have been intruded by tonalite of the Eocene Boundary Stock. Pyrrhotite with minor chalcopyrite and malachite was noted on SW Scottie. Table 5 highlights some of the samples from NW and SW Scottie with samples of up to 0.69% Copper and 10.72 gpt Silver.

Goldplay had planned to spend approximately $400,000 on the Scottie West 2021 exploration program. Given most of the claims are above 1300 m, the best time for surface exploration work is in the later part of the summer and early fall, with only about 6 weeks of prime weather conditions. Due to extreme work-loads and staff shortages at the laboratories, the processing time for complete assay results is currently 2-3 months. Given these significant delays and short prime weather window, management felt it was prudent to wait for assay results before planning and completing additional work. As a result, Goldplay was able to spend a total of about $200,000 on the Scottie West 2021 exploration program. Much of the discovered mineralization is associated with altered rocks that are poorly exposed as they occur in recessive outcrop. These areas are often the last areas to be exposed from the melting seasonal snowpack.

In reviewing the assays from the rock samples collected in 2021, there appears to be a strong correlation between Gold and the pathfinder element arsenic. There also appears to be a strong correlation between Silver, Lead, Zinc, Antimony and Cadmium.

For the 2022 field program, a follow up program of detailed prospecting, mapping and talus fines sampling in the vicinity of the discovered showings on the SE Exposure Nunatak and the Leduc NE Ridge is proposed. This would be followed by targeted channel sampling and ground Induced Polarization Geophysics. The program would not start until mid-August 2022 when much of the winter snowpack has melted.

The property borders Scottie Resources' Scottie Gold property and is 7 kilometres southwest of the past-producing Scottie Gold Mine, which operated from October 1981 to February 1985 and produced a total 2,984 kilograms (95,940 ounces) of Gold and 1,625 kilograms (52,250 ounces) Silver from 160,264 tonnes of milled ore, for an average recovered grade of 18.62 gpt (0.543 ounces per ton) Gold and 10.14 gpt (0.296 ounces per ton) Silver (MINFILE 104B 034). The Scottie West property occurs along the southwest extension of a mineralized belt that includes Scottie Resources' Blueberry Zone, the Scottie Gold Mine and the recently discovered Domino Zone (Figure 1). The Domino Zone is 3 kilometres northeast of the Scottie West property and drilling in 2020 included the following results.

  • 12.4 gpt Gold and 8.7 gpt Silver over 2.69 m
  • 2.48 gpt Gold and 8.63 gpt Silver over 15.46 m including 19.9 gpt Gold and 71.6 gpt Silver over 0.94 m
  • 13.4 gpt Gold and 8.11 gpt Silver over 1.07 m.

Scottie Resources Intercepts 11.8 g/t Gold Over 6.57 Metres and 37.2 g/t Gold Over 3.71 Metres at Scottie Gold Mine Project and Provides Corporate Update

Scottie Resources Corp. (" Scottie " or the " Company ") (TSXV: SCOT), (OTCQB:SCTSF), (FSE:SR8) is pleased to report drill assays from its Scottie Gold Mine (SGM) target. Due to the parallel nature of the targeted veins, individual holes were designed to test multiple discreet targets. Highlight intercepts from the reported holes include: 11.8 gt gold over 6.57 metres, 20.6 gt gold over 2.22 metres, and 37.2 gt gold over 3.71 metres in the P, O, and M-Zones respectively. The past-producing high-grade Scottie Gold Mine is located on the Granduc Road, 35 kilometres north of the town of Stewart, BC, and is one of four primary targets that were tested during the 14,500 m program in 2021, which also includes the rapidly advancing Blueberry Zone ( November 9, 2021 ) .

"These results from Scottie Gold Mine illustrate the potential for the expansion of the historic resource at Scottie through both the extension of known ore shoots, as well as revealing the potential of previously untested targets – notably the P-zone which prior to Scottie's involvement had seen no drilling, and now we are hitting intercepts comparable to the mined stopes of the past producing mine." comments President and CEO, Brad Rourke. "The Scottie Gold Mine target continues to deliver as a cornerstone to our primary goal of developing a road accessible, 1M+ ounce high-grade gold resource at our Scottie Gold Mine Project."
