K9 Gold Receives Results from Geophysical Inversions on Stony Lake Project, Newfoundland; Major IP Survey Planned

K9 Gold Corp. (TSXV: KNC) (OTC: WDFCF) (FSE: 5GP) ("K9" or the "Company") is pleased to report that the Company has received results from a 3D Magnetic Inversion study carried out on its Stony Lake project, central Newfoundland. When integrated with the interpretation of the recent VTEM survey (see Company News Release January 7, 2021), the inversions have provided a more detailed model of the distribution of potential exploration targets within the project area.

Combined with previous ground work (sampling of rocks and tills), these inversions provide a valuable guide to the next phases of exploration. In particular, four areas have been identified as high priority targets for phased follow-up ground geophysical surveys. Two of these targets (Jumper's Pond and Moonlight) have been selected for the first phase of Induced Polarization (IP) surveying, for a total of 60 line kilometres.

The inversion study of the airborne magnetic survey data was completed by Sean Walker of Campbell & Walker Geophysics, North Vancouver, BC. Due to the size of the block the inversion was carried out in two steps. A coarse inversion was performed, where the full block was inverted into 80 x 80 x 40 m cells. The recovered model was then used as the reference point for a fine inversion. For the fine inversion, the block was divided into three parts and each part was inverted using 40 x 40 x 20 m cells. The three parts were then merged into a single final model.

Simcoe Geoscience, of Stouffville, Ontario, has been awarded a contract to carry out a High Resolution Wireless Alpha IP survey over the Jumper's Pond and moonlight areas. The total survey will include approximately 60 line kilometres. Simcoe will use their Alpha IPTM Wireless Time Domain Distributed Induced Polarization system. Being wireless, this system has the significant advantage of not requiring any line cutting, thereby minimizing the footprint of the survey.

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 November 19, 2020 Sokoman Minerals announced drill results which included two zones in hole MH-20-115, 47.2 g/t Au over 4.60m and 68.3 g/t Au over 8.10m at their Moosehead project, immediately adjacent to K9's Stony Lake property. On December 15, 2020, New Found Gold announced intercepts of 45.3 g/t Au over 13.1m in hole NFGC-20-32 and 25.0 g/t Au over 16.9m in hole NFGC-20-29 at their nearby Queensway property.

K9 CEO Jeff Poloni states, "With our recent financing we are well funded to carry out our aggressive exploration plan for 2021. The planed IP survey will help to advance our understanding of the underlying structures and to continue to narrow down the source of the numerous gold anomalies property wide at Stony Lake."

About Stony Lake Project

The Stony Lake project lies within 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 to the northeast and Marathon's Valentine Lake deposit to the southwest.

At Stony Lake, large areas of significant gold mineralization occur primarily in altered Botwood sediments and quartz-feldspar porphyry intrusives associated with intense silicification, sericite-chlorite-carbonate alteration and a strong pyrite-arsenopyrite mineralogical association. These features indicate epizonal/mesozonal temperatures for the hydrothermal fluids and support the exploration model of hydrothermal fluids leaking upwards into the Botwood sediments from a deeper igneous intrusive source. This area is now referred to as the Exploits Subzone gold district which essentially covers the Silurian-age clastic sediments surrounding the Mount Peyton intrusive.

Prior to the 2020 field season, airborne geophysical coverage, with follow-up ground prospecting and sampling, has led to the identification of eight area of highly anomalous to high grade gold mineralization. The gold mineralization is hosted in a variety of environments, including quartz-feldspar porphyries, reduced sandstones, quartz stockworks and quartz veins. The property hosts both widespread low grade mineralization (up to 4.0 g/t Au) within the Botwood Formation and high grade veins (>4.0 g/t Au) in the basement rocks below the Botwood, similar to the nearby New Found Gold Queensway project, and the immediately adjacent Sokoman Minerals Moosehead discovery.

On-going interpretive work on the Stony Lake property has yielded several direct comparisons with the Sokoman Minerals Corp Moosehead discovery, immediately to the northeast of Stony Lake's Jumper's Pond area (note - this area was previously named "Flyers Grid," and since significant portions of the historic Flyers Grid lie off K9's property, K9 has renamed the area to avoid confusion).

Published information on the Moosehead discovery indicates that the mineralization is spatially related to reworking of a major basement structure which is likely the main pathway for the mineralizing fluids. The spatial association of the faulting with mafic intrusives appears to be highly significant. The Moosehead mineralization is hosted by N to NW trending and east dipping faults, which appear to be related to meso-scale anticlinal folding. These types of mineralizing systems typically have great lateral and depth extents (measured in kilometers).

Recent (2019) and historic (2001) geophysical work on the Jumper's Pond area strongly suggests the presence of a large fold structure that plunges to the NE towards Moosehead, as well as several NW-trending structural features. The presence of mafic rocks is also indicated for this area. The major fault structure related to the Mooseheads discovery can clearly be traced by regional magnetics for 5 - 6 km onto the Stony Lake property. These similarities increase K9's confidence in the prospectivity of the Jumper's Pond area.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Maintains Gains, Uranium Mania Still to Come

As the third week of the new year wraps up, gold's momentum remains strong. After breaking the US$1,900 per ounce mark last week, the yellow metal has kept above that level, ending Friday (January 20) around US$1,925.

December's producer price index (PPI) data was in the headlines this week, with a decline of 0.5 percent month-on-month and a year-on-year increase of 6.2 percent. The 0.5 percent fall was the largest since the start of the COVID-19.

The PPI looks at final demand prices across a wide variety of categories and is meant to measure inflation at the wholesale level. It's different from the consumer price index, which measures changes in the prices consumers pay for goods and services.

VIDEO — Jeffrey Christian: Gold, Silver Gaining Traction, 2023 Will be Year of Transition

Investors who backed away from precious metals in 2022 may be ready to re-enter the sector this year.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Jeffrey Christian, managing partner at CPM Group, said in the first few of weeks of the new year he's already seen better interest from institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals.

"If I'm right, what we'll see is a lot more rational investors saying, 'Gold and silver make sense in a diversified portfolio. I understand their loose relationship with interest rates, I understand their loose relationship with stocks and inflation and other factors — but I also understand that if I have gold and silver in my portfolio, I have a less volatile net wealth,'" he said.

Donlin Gold Announces Final Assay Results for 2022 Drill Program

Donlin Gold LLC ("Donlin Gold"), owned 50:50 by Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick") (TSX: ABX) (NYSE: GOLD) and NOVAGOLD RESOURCES INC. ("NOVAGOLD") (TSX, NYSE American: NG), is pleased to report the release of the final set of assay results from the 2022 drill program. The assay results for the final 44 drill holes and full 2022 drill program are reported in Table 2 in the Appendix.

The comprehensive 141-hole, 42,331-meter (m) drill program was safely and successfully completed ahead of schedule, under budget and included multiple high-grade gold intercepts reported from the latest set of assays. These include DC22-2130 that intersected 17.20 m grading 11.11 g/t gold, with a sub-interval of 4.25 m grading 36.91 g/t gold.

The results from the 2022 drill program reconcile favorably with the resource model as well as further support the global resource estimate and recent modelling concepts.

Donlin Gold continued to work in partnership with Alaska Native landowners Calista Corporation ("Calista") and The Kuskokwim Corporation (TKC) in stakeholder and government engagement in the Yukon-Kuskokwim (Y-K) region, Alaska, and Washington, D.C.

Environmental and social investment focused on the Y-K region included support for important health and safety initiatives in remote communities, cultural preservation efforts, and educational programming in collaboration with school districts and other organizations.

Donlin Gold continued to advance state permitting efforts, including the renewal of air and water permits in 2022.

With an increased appreciation of the geology, the experienced team will continue to focus on updating the resource model and completing trade-off studies — all of which are moving the Donlin Gold project up the value chain and leading toward an updated feasibility study decision.
