K9 Gold Provides Exploration Update for Stony Lake Project, NL

K9 Gold Corp. (TSXV: KNC) (OTC Pink: WDFCF) (FSE: 5GP) ("K9" or the "Company") is pleased to provide shareholders with an update on exploration work being carried out on its Stony Lake gold project in central Newfoundland.

The planned 5000 metre drill program is progressing well, with eleven holes completed to date for 3080 metres. The drilling has been concentrated mainly in the Jumper's Pond area, where eight holes have been completed immediately to the south of Sokoman's Moosehead discovery. Additionally three holes have been completed adjacent to the recently announced Deliverance trench.

Most of the Jumper's Pond holes have intersected significant shearing in both the Wigwam Fm. sandstones and the Lawrenceton Fm. volcanics. Several gabbroic dykes have also been noted. These shear zones, which can be up to 20 m wide, exhibit locally intense brecciation, with substantial amounts of quartz veining (with ginguro banding noted in JP21-008), and sulphide concentrations up to 20%, with both pyrite and arsenopyrite. Locally, intense sericite and chlorite alteration have been observed, along with intense silicification. Descriptions of work by other companies from area projects suggest that these features can be indicative of proximity to significant gold mineralization, which fits well with K9's exploration model.

Core samples have been submitted to Eastern Analytical in Springdale, NL and results are pending. As with all companies currently exploring the Exploits Subzone Gold Belt in central Newfoundland, the unprecedented high demand for analytical services has created substantial backlogs for local laboratories.

The Company has received approval from the Newfoundland and Labrador Mineral Lands Division for an amendment to its drilling permit which will allow drilling to cover a larger area. An application has also been made for a Phase 2 drill program in the Jumper's Pond area with 25 holes and 5000 m.

The large soil sampling survey, covering much of the property, is almost complete, with a small area remaining. Analytical results have been received for approximately 95% of the samples submitted. The survey has lead to the identification of multiple new target areas, showing multi-element anomalies which include Au, As and Sb.

Jeff Poloni, CEO of K9 Gold commented, "We are extremely happy to see the interpreted structures transecting both the sandstone and volcanic units and significant intercepts with substantial alteration and mineralization. In addition with the sampling program taking over 3000 samples we have been able to cover a good portion of the property particularly in areas with no previous work. Detailed exploration will be conducted over the next few weeks to further define the new target areas."

News Releases from other companies active in the Central Newfoundland Gold Belt continue to increase the profile of this newly emerging gold district. For example, on April 28, 2021 Sokoman Minerals announced a new discovery at South Pond on their Moosehead project, immediately adjacent to K9's Stony Lake property. On May 4, 2021, New Found Gold announced an intercept of 124.4 g/t Au over 17.7 m in hole NFGC-20-59 at their nearby Queensway property.

K9 Gold acknowledges the financial support of the Stony Lake project by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, through the Department of Industry, Energy and Technology Junior Exploration Assistance Program.

About Stony Lake Project

The Stony Lake project is owned 100% by K9 Gold Corp. It lies within the Exploits Subzone Gold Belt of the Cape Ray/Valentine Lake structural trend in Central Newfoundland, lying parallel to that of New Found Gold's Queensway project, along the prolific Dog Bay Line. The project covers 13,625 ha and 27 kilometers of favorable trend between Sokoman's Moosehead discovery immediately to the northeast and Marathon's Valentine Lake deposit to the southwest. Excellent infrastructure exists on the project lands and in the surrounding area.

At Stony Lake, ground prospecting and sampling has led to the identification of seven broad areas of highly anomalous to low grade (up to 4.0 g/t Au) to high grade (>4.0 g/t Au) gold mineralization. Following up on the prospecting work, systematic exploration with property-wide airborne geophysical and extensive soil sampling, plus two large grids of IP ground geophysical survey, has led to the interpretation of about 100 anomalies, at least ten of which are rated as high priority drill targets.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Pulls Back After Spike, Central Banks Boost Holdings

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Pulls Back After Spike, Central Banks Boost Holdings

It was a week of ups and downs for the gold price, which traded as high as US$1,957 per ounce and as low as US$1,863. At the time of this writing on Friday (February 3), the yellow metal was around US$1,865.

What factors are responsible for that broad range? The US Federal Reserve played a role mid-week.

The central bank's first meeting of the year ran from Tuesday (January 31) to Wednesday (February 1), and it ended with an interest rate hike of 25 basis points, the smallest since last March. The Fed's benchmark interest rate now sits at 4.5 to 4.75 percent.

VIDEO — Ross Beaty: Gold Fundamentals Terrific, Set to Blow Through Previous High

VIDEO — Ross Beaty: Gold Fundamentals Terrific, Set to Blow Through Previous High

After gold's flat performance in 2022, well-known mining sector entrepreneur Ross Beaty has a better outlook for 2023.

"Quite frankly, I think there's so much momentum right now — I'm very confident gold's going to blow through its previous high and sail into new territory, probably this year," he said at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC).

In Beaty's view, it was the US dollar's strength that killed gold's momentum last year. But even he had trouble reconciling the yellow metal's lack of momentum with the sheer number of seemingly positive price drivers.

VIDEO — Nick Santiago: Gold Can Still Pull Back to US$1,500 Before All-time High

The gold price has been on the rise for the last few months, but Nick Santiago, CEO and chief market strategist at InTheMoneyStocks.com, still believes a big pullback to the US$1,500 per ounce level is possible.

"I'm not bearish gold at the moment, but if I do get a sell signal, I think the next leg down takes you to that US$1,500 level, which would be the ultimate buy area," he explained to the Investing News Network. "I think that's going to be your chance to really get into gold for the long term. And then I do think gold ultimately breaks out to a new all-time high."

In terms of exactly how high gold could go in 2023, Santiago said he doesn't expect US$5,000 or US$10,000 like some market watchers are projecting. However, he does see the high US$2,000s, or possibly even US$3,000, as possible.

VIDEO — EB Tucker: Gold, Silver Price Levels to Watch, 2023 Investing Strategies

With the new year ahead, "Why Gold? Why Now?" author EB Tucker shared his thoughts on gold and silver, saying that US$2,000 per ounce and US$30 per ounce respectively are important levels for investors to watch.

"US$2,000's got to be a 2023 story," he told the Investing News Network when asked if gold could reach that key price this year. "The way it looks right now, you're US$60 away. I think it could happen fast."

Pointing to gold's rise of about US$300 since early November, Tucker said that the futures market sets the spot price, and activity in that arena has stopped weighing on the yellow metal over the last several months.
