Precious Metals

Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSXV: MEK) (OTCQB: MCREF) (FRA:M1C1) (the "Company" or Metals Creek) is pleased to announce the Company has commenced mobilizing drill equipment to the Ogden Gold Project in Timmins, Ontario. The Ogden Gold Project is a 5050 Joint Venture with Newmont Corporation ("Newmont"), with the Company serving as the operator.

The Thomas Ogden Zone (TOG) will be the main focus of the upcoming drill program with emphasis on further defining the orientation of high-grade cross cutting veins and mineralization as well as determining the spacial association of high-grade mineralization associated with cross-cutting structures and veins within these fold structures. Oriented core will be utilized. Diamond Drilling is expected to commence as soon as practical.

Line cutting is ongoing and ground geophysics consisting of Deep Section Induced Polarization (IP) is anticipated to take place during the latter portion of September over Naybob South, Thomas Ogden (TOG) and Thomas Ogden West (TOGW) to help further define the down plunge orientation of the fold axis and mineralization at depth of both TOG and TOGW as well as further defining the plunge direction of known sulfide mineralization within Naybob South below existing drill data.

Spatiotemporal Geochemical Hydrocarbon (SGH) sampling has now been completed over the entire property. This SGH sampling program (Phase 2) was designed to fill in gaps between TOG and South Zone, as well additional sampling to both the eastern and western boundaries. SGH can greatly expedite the target generation process, potentially resulting in substantial cost savings when evaluating and ultimately delineating these potential targets with the extensive overburden coverage on the property.

Alexander (Sandy) Stares states, "With a flurry of exploration activity underway in the Timmins area, we are excited to restart exploration at the Ogden Gold Project. With secured funding from Crescat Capital, we have the required capital to kick start exploration in the Timmins Camp. The Ogden Project is strategically located and consists of 8 km of highly prospective stratigraphy within the prolific Porcupine-Destor Fault with associated high-grade gold mineralization."

About the Ogden Gold Project

Work commenced on the property by Metals Creek in 2009 and has consisted of ground geophysical surveys which include magnetics and induced polarization (IP), down-hole IP, as well as 137 diamond drill holes totaling 35,830 meters.

The Ogden Gold Project covers 8 kilometers of the Porcupine Destor Fault, which is the key conduit for gold mineralization in the Timmins Gold camp. (See Figure 1 Timmins Gold Camp) There are five known gold zones on the property, with TOG and Naybob South seeing the majority of the work. Drilling in 2012 and 2013 on TOG greatly enhanced the company's understanding of the geological and structural complexity within TOG and its control on gold mineralization. Alteration within these gold bearing systems consists of strong albitization and silicification, with varying amounts of pyrite, arsenopyrite mineralization and commonly with associated visible gold. Significant folding is present with enhanced gold grades along the fold hinges. These fold hinges have a gentle plunge to the east. Select results from these drill programs include:

  • 210.19g/t grams per ton (g/t) gold (Au) over 12.53 meters (m) including 2732.64g/t Au over 0.93m (TOG-12-25). (see Figure 2)
  • 49.96g/t Au over 9.0m including 434.77g/t Au over 1.0m (TOG-13-27)
  • 6.08g/t Au over 21.85m including 11.76g/t Au over 9.00m (TOG-12-03)
  • 9.46g/t Au over 18.55m and 6.17g/t Au over 6.62m (TOG-12-07)

Upon performing a re-interpretation of the ground geophysical data in conjunction with applying known structural trends known for hosting gold mineralization in the Timmins Gold Camp, a new discovery (TOG West), 1 kilometer west of TOG resulted in an intercept of 5.20g/t Au over 2.90m. More importantly, this intercept resulted in the identification of a second fold structure parallel to that of TOG.

The Naybob South zone is described as a zone of intensely albitized mafic/ultramafics with abundant pyrite and arsenopyrite. Drill intercepts for South Zone include;

  • 9.24g/t Au over 6.61m (OG09-012)
  • 6.21g/t Au over 6.63m (OG11-002) with both being within 100m of surface.

Newmont's Dome mill is located approximately 8 km east of the property.

All above mentioned drill intercepts are within 150m of surface.

Prime Drills Multiple Bonanza and High-Grade Intercepts at Guadalupe Including 33.2 gpt Au and 1,072 gpt Ag over 2.0 Metres

Prime Mining Corp. (“Prime” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: PRYM, OTCQB: PRMNF, Frankfurt: 04V3) announces additional assay results from its recently completed Phase 2 drill program. Today’s results are from the Guadalupe area where Prime continues to delineate and expand the multi-million-ounce Los Reyes high-grade gold-silver deposit. Los Reyes and its three known gold-silver deposit areas (Guadalupe, Z-T and Central), has a mineralized footprint of over 15 square kilometres and is located in a highly prospective, 500-year old mining-friendly district of Sinaloa, Mexico.

Today’s results are from seven drill holes in the main Guadalupe deposit.

Sarama Resources Intersects 21m @ 7.57g/t Gold at MM Prospect

Extensional Targets Deliver Shallow, High-Grade Intersections

Sarama Resources Ltd. ("Sarama" or the "Company") (ASX:SRR)(TSX-V:SWA) is pleased to announce that exploration drilling at its 100%-owned(4) Sanutura Project (the "Project") has intersected new high-grade mineralisation and identified extensions to selected lodes at the MM Prospect within the Tankoro Deposit. The new mineralisation is located near-surface in oxide material outside the current Mineral Resource and has potential to enhance open pit stripping ratios in any eventual mine development. Sarama intends to pursue these types of targets in upcoming drill programs

The reported drilling totals 2,200m and represents the fifth discovery of new mineralisation in the ongoing +50,000m program, which was designed to increase the oxide component of the Project's 0.6Moz Au (Indicated) plus 2.3Moz Au (Inferred)(1) Mineral Resource.

Highlights

  • New, high-grade mineralisation intersected from surface and outside the modelled Mineral Resource at the MM Prospect
  • Highlighted downhole intersections from new assays include:
    • 21m @ 7.57g/t Au from surface in TAA359;
    • 15m @ 2.48g/t Au from 15m in TAR041;
    • 13m @ 1.41g/t Au from 21m in TAR042;
    • 13m @ 1.36g/t Au from 29m in TAR040; and
    • 30m @ 0.84g/t Au from 8m in TAA411
  • Intersections are in shallow, oxide material with high potential to add to the oxide and transition component of the Mineral Resource, currently standing at 0.2Moz Au (Indicated) plus 0.8Moz Au (Inferred)(2)
  • Identification of new mineralisation proximal to the existing Mineral Resource will enhance project economics
  • Results continue to support the thesis that potential remains for significant new discoveries close to known mineralisation
  • Results from the final suite of assays in the Q2/Q3 2022 program will be announced later this quarter
  • Follow-up drilling, including greenfields exploration drilling, expected to commence in 2023

Sarama's President, CEO & MD, Andrew Dinning commented:

"We are very pleased with the quality of results from the Q2/Q3 2022 exploration program. As per previous releases, these most recent results continue to illustrate the potential for new discoveries within the Tankoro Deposit's very large and prospective mineralised corridor. We look forward to completing the current drill program and following-up the multitude of exciting discoveries made so far."
