Marvel Discovery Corp. (TSXV:MARV)(FRA:O4T1)(OTC PINK:IMTFF)("Marvel" or the "Company") is pleased to report it has received its first assay results from its 2021 exploration program on the Blackfly Gold Project near Atikokan, Ontario. The Marvel geological team has conducted the initial prospecting, field mapping and sampling, and has now received the first batch of 78 assays. A further 180 samples have been submitted for analyses at Actlabs of Thunder Bay, Ontario

2021 Sample Highlights:

  • 40 of the 78 samples returned assays greater than 100 ppb gold
  • 7 samples graded from 1.00 g/t and up to 2.99 g/t gold
  • 15 samples in excess of 3.00 g/t gold of which 4 samples assayed greater than 10 g/t gold with coarse visible gold noted in sample W1069699 that assayed 24.3 g/t gold
  • Identification of potential new drill targets outside area of shaft veins

Table One: List of select samples taken during the initial 2021 exploration work on the Blackfly Gold Project. Legend of unit; DIOR - diorite, GRDR - granodiorite, GRAN - granite, MAF - mafic dike, QV - quartz vein

The mineralized samples occur within strongly silica-sericite-ankerite-pyrite ± chlorite altered and veined granodiorite and diorite, with local shearing. Accessory sulphide phases include galena, chalcopyrite and bornite. Host rocks retain a well-developed, steeply dipping northeast trending foliation.

Mr. Karim Rayani, President and CEO commented, "These grab samples show the presence of high-grade gold, visible gold and the potential for both vein-hosted and broad disseminated / stringer mineralization. We are very pleased to finally prepare for our summer drill program to be commenced within weeks."

Grab samples are selected samples and not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property.

Marvel's Blackfly Gold Project

The Property is located in the developing Atikokan gold mining camp along and within the Marmion Lake Fault Zone, approximately 13.6 kilometers ("km") southwest along strike of Agnico Eagle's Hammond Reef Gold Deposit.

Assessment file records indicate that the original Blackfly gold discovery was made in 1897, making the occurrence one of the earliest found in the Atikokan gold mining camp. The project's 45-foot shaft was sunk in 1898 shortly after gold was discovered. Several companies have added to the database of the Property including: Rebair Gold Mines Ltd. (1945 to 1948), Steeprock Mines Ltd. (1949 and again in 1961), Aavdex Corporation (2004) and TerraX Minerals Inc. (2009 to 2012).

2021 Exploration Program

The 2021 exploration program on the Project is a continuation of the work initiated in 2020 that included a compilation of historical information and reports and completion of its high-resolution airborne magnetics and time-domain electromagnetic data collection over 203 line-kilometers at 100m spacing. Several geophysical anomalies were identified and targets for follow-up were recommended. Marvel's geological team has begun the 2021 program work of prospecting, bedrock mapping and rock sampling. Trenching is planned for further definition of the gold mineralization associated with the known anomalies and geological structures. Diamond drilling is budgeted to commence in the summer field season with 16 drill holes.

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.
