Kenorland Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: KLD) ("Kenorland" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling at Regnault within the Frotet Project (the "Project" ) located in the Frotet-Evans greenstone belt of Quebec.

The program will include up to 9,000 meters of diamond drilling to follow-up on the initial discovery made in 2020 where the Company intersected 29.08m at 8.47g/t Au including 11.13m at 18.43g/t Au during the maiden drill program testing a greenfield target (see press release dated July 29, 2020 ).

The announced drill program will see approximately 6,000 meters of drilling allocated within the 'Regnault Discovery Area', stepping out from previous significant drill intercepts as well as testing new targets within the two kilometer strike length of known mineralization.  The remaining 3,000 meters will be allocated to testing further targets within the 'Regnault South' area, a three kilometer trend of continual gold in till anomalism along strike of the initial discovery area.

The previously announced 129 line-km 3D IP survey is well underway and processed data covering the discovery area has been utilized for drill targeting.  The remainder of the survey along Regnault South will be completed in the coming weeks.  Further information regarding these targets will be communicated to the market once the entire survey is completed.

Zach Flood , CEO of Kenorland states, "We're delighted to have the drills turning again on this incredible discovery.  In mineral exploration, the odds of finding a completely new, and significant gold system are extremely rare.  I believe we've succeeded in that and the objective now is to expand the footprint, and define the limits and continuity of mineralization."

About the Frotet Project

The Frotet Project was first identified by Kenorland in 2017 after completing a regional prospectively study over the Abitibi and Frotet-Evans Greenstone Belts. The Frotet-Evans greenstone belt hosts the Troilus Au-Cu deposit which produced more than two million ounces of gold and ~70,000 tons of Cu between 1996-2010, and currently contains 3.97Moz Au indicated and 1.53Moz Au inferred (Troilus Gold website). The initial 55,921 ha property was acquired through map staking in March, 2017 and optioned to Sumitomo Metal Mining Canada Ltd. ("SMMCL"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Metal Mining Co., Ltd. in April, 2018. Two years of property-wide systematic till sampling led to a maiden drill program in 2020 which resulted in a significant grassroots discovery at the prospect now named Regnault. The project is currently owned 65% SMMCL and 35% Kenorland.  SMMCL has the option to earn an additional 15% (80% total) by funding an additional C$4 million before October 1 st , 2021.  Once a joint venture is formed, any party which is diluted below a 10% interest will convert their interest to a 2% uncapped net smelter royalty.

Kirkland Lake Gold Announces Receipt of Notices for Investigation and Improvement by Environmental Protection Authority Victoria

Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (" Kirkland Lake Gold " or the " Company ") (TSX:KL) (NYSE:KL) (ASX:KLA) today reported that the Company has been advised by the Environmental Protection Authority ("EPA") Victoria of the Victorian Government that the EPA has determined that low-level frequency noise (in the range of 16-20 Hz) is being emitted by the Fosterville Mine.

The EPA has provided the Company with a Notice to Investigate and an Improvement Notice focused on the low-level frequency noise which it believes is emanating from the mine. Included within the notices are stated timelines covering a period of just over two months for investigating and resolving the issue of low-frequency noise as well as reporting to the EPA on modifications introduced and new testing completed. In addition, the EPA has indicated to the Company that additional action may be taken by the EPA that could result in restrictions on the use of certain equipment, primarily surface ventilation fans and surface drill rigs in the south portion of the mining lease, during the night, while the remediation period is completed. The potential impact of such measures on the Fosterville operations, should they be introduced, is currently being investigated.

Management at Fosterville has been aware of concerns expressed by residents in recent months regarding low-level frequency noise and has taken steps to evaluate and address these concerns. As part of these efforts, Fosterville commissioned two independent studies on noise levels produced by the mine. The studies were completed by accredited noise and acoustic specialist firms based in Australia, with both studies concluding that all mine generated noise was within regulatory limits.

Sir Laurence Gold Discovery Grows To Over 1km Strike Length: AC Drilling Completed And Diamond Core Drilling Underway

Sir Laurence Gold Discovery Grows To Over 1km Strike Length: AC Drilling Completed And Diamond Core Drilling Underway

Kingwest Resources Limited (ASX:KWR) CEO, Ed Turner commented:

To get significant gold intersections, including bedrock mineralisation, on every line drilled to date at Sir Laurence is exceptional. To date these cover a strike length of 1km and mineralisation is open in all directions. Some of our best results, such as 2m @ 1.6 g/t Au from 76m in KGA067O, have been at the end of drill lines and therefore there remains a lot of additional drilling required before the limits of mineralisation are defined. We now look forward to seeing what the diamond core drilling intersects and anticipate initial results before Christmas. We also look forward to the assay results from the remainder of the Sir Laurence holes and the regional holes."
