  • Drilled New High-Grade Near Surface Gold Discovery
  • Main Zone returns 5.21 g/t Gold over 14.80 meters

Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSXV: MEK) (the "Corporation") is pleased to announce diamond drill results for three drill holes from the ongoing phase II diamond drill program at the Dona Lake Gold project (See News Release November 18, 2020).

While targeting Main Zone, drill hole DL21-007 intersected new high grade near surface mineralization within reddish-brown biotite altered mafic volcanics with associated quartz veining, pyrite mineralization and visible gold. The reddish-brown biotite alteration is potentially indicative of high temperature hydrothermal alteration. Very fine visible gold was noted within the quartz vein material. Quartz veining makes up approximately 60 percent of the intercept. This new zone (QV Zone) returned a core length intercept of 23.48 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) over 1.72 meters (m) (57.35 - 59.07m). Based on available information, no surface diamond drilling appears to have occurred within this portion of the property, leaving this zone open both along strike and down dip. At this time, there is insufficient data to determine an orientation of this new zone.

Hole DL21-007 continued to intercept Main Zone at approximately 390m below surface and returned a core length intercept of 5.21g/t Au over 14.80m (434.45 - 449.25m). This was a part of a broader zone of mineralization of 3.88g/t Au over 23.08m (427.02 - 450.10m). (See Table of significant results Below). Mineralization is hosted within silicate-sulfide iron formation and characterized by stringer to disseminated pyrrhotite ranging from 3 to 20% with local pyrite as well as sections of silicate-oxide iron formation. Alteration includes strong silicification with local quartz veining and locally moderate to strong grunerite, hornblende and biotite in conjunction with locally strong folding. This intercept is located south of the mine workings between the 360 and 455 level. B-Zone was also intercepted returning a core length intercept of 4.89g/t Au over 4.00m (460.00 - 464.00m). This intercept consisted of mainly 2 to 10% pyrrhotite and 1% pyrite within a silicate-sulfide iron formation. (See figure 1)

Due to excess deviation in holes DL21-008 and DL21-009, these holes intersected mine workings (009) and 455 level drift (008).

Drill intercepts reported in these holes are not true widths. There is insufficient data at this point to determine a true orientation.

Alexander (Sandy) Stares, President and CEO of Metals Creek, states, "We are highly encouraged about the New High-Grade Zone encountered in hole DL21-007. This New zone appears to be open both along strike and down dip and will be tested while targeting the Main Zone in future drilling. In addition, the results encountered from the main zone confirms our belief that high grade mineralization remains outside of the mined out area at the Dona Lake Gold Mine. Drillers have currently taken a break."

The Dona Lake Gold Project was optioned from Newmont Corporation (previously Newmont Goldcorp - see news release dated 13 June 2019) and is located in the Pickle Lake Greenstone Belt which is host to several historic mines including the Dona Lake mine, the Central Patricia mine and the Pickle Crow mine. Dona Lake is accessible by an all-weather road southeast from the Town of Pickle Lake. The Project consists of 32 patented and leased mining claims and 35 map staked claims totaling approximately 1,122 hectares and covers the past producing Dona Lake Mine.

Michael MacIsaac, P.Geo and VP Exploration for the Corporation and a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101, is responsible for this release, and supervised the preparation of the information forming the basis for this release.

All split core samples were sent to Activation Laboratories. The precious metals were analyzed utilizing a standard fire assay with an atomic absorption finish. As part of the Corporations QAQC protocol, approximately 10% of the samples submitted for assay were also sent for check assays. Standards and blanks were inserted randomly into the sample shipments as part of the sampling protocol. Samples with fire assay results above 1.0 g/t gold are re-analyzed using a gravimetric finish and samples with fire assay results above 5.0 g/t gold or samples showing visible gold are analyzed using the pulp metallic method.

NV Gold Confirms Potential Extension of Gold Mineralization at Slumber Project

NV Gold Confirms Potential Extension of Gold Mineralization at Slumber Project

NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(Frankfurt:8NV) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") has confirmed the correlation of a "low-resistivity zone" with known alteration and possible gold mineralization at its 100% controlled Slumber Gold Project ("Slumber") located approximately 50 miles northwest of Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA

The Q4-2021 drill program at Slumber has currently completed five RC (reverse circulation) drill holes totaling approximately 900 meters. The goal of this program is the confirmation of a reinterpreted geological model and correlation of alteration and possible gold mineralization with a low resistivity zone identified by last year's CSAMT work (see press release September 7th, 2021). The initial holes appear to confirm this previously untested concept.

Novo Identifies Ni-Cu Targets at Southcourt, Andover Intrusion, Adjacent to Azure's Andover VC-07 Ni-Cu-Co Discovery

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Novo's extensive greenfields exploration program has recently identified and advanced a series Ni-Cu-Co targets adjacent to Azure Minerals Limited's (" Azure ") (ASX: AZS) Andover VC-07 Ni-Cu-Co massive sulphide discovery (" Andover ") and Artemis Resources Limited's (" Artemis ") (ASX: ARV) Carlow Castle Au-Cu-Co discovery (" Carlow Castle ")
  • Novo's 100%-owned exploration licence 47/1745 contains several airborne electromagnetic (" VTEM ") anomalies (previously defined in 2007 by Legend Mining Limited (" Legend ") (ASX: LEG)) which have not been drill tested, along with large high order soil geochemical anomalies (including Cu, Ni and Co) associated with the VTEM conductors, including the Southcourt and Milburn prospects
  • Novo is now progressing ground electromagnetic (" EM ") geophysical surveys in the near-term to advance these discoveries
  • This work is consistent with Novo's accelerated exploration strategy targeted at growing the Company's portfolio of gold and battery metals prospects in the Pilbara region of Western Australia

Novo Resources Corp. ( "Novo" or the "Company" ) (TSX: NVO, NVO.WT & NVO.WT.A) (OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to advise that it has recently identified and advanced a series of Au-Cu and Ni-Cu-Co targets on EL471745, adjacent to Andover 1 and Carlow Castle 2 in the West Pilbara region of Western Australia, although there is no certainty that EL471745 contains the same levels of mineralization as either of these discoveries.
