MLK Gold Ltd. Corporate Update - Company gearing up for "exciting" year ahead, plans to announce soil till sample evaluations on flagship mining projects in January 2022

Exploring Atlantic Canada promotional video released; Company ready to "stand amongst giants."

WINDSOR, NS , Dec. 15, 2021 /CNW/ - On behalf of MLK Gold Ltd. ("MLK" or the "Company") (CSE: MLK) Executive Chairman, Bill Fleming , President & CEO, Paul Smith , and the MLK Gold Ltd. management team, the Company is looking forward to sharing its corporate outlook and providing an update on the progress of its strategic initiatives.


Against a backdrop of the continuing impacts of Covid-19 on the global economy, MLK intends to accelerate implementation of its strategic exploration initiatives in 2022. The Company will build a stronger and more sustainable business and will capitalize on its pre-Covid-19 progress and adapt its multi-phase exploration plan to meet target goals.

Executive Chairman & Director, Bill Fleming , says the work undertaken by the Company in 2021 was just the start of something bigger and better to come.

"We are expecting 2022 to be a banner year for MLK Gold," added Fleming. "I speak for the entire company when I say that we are truly excited to be part of the Newfoundland and Labrador gold rush. The province has world class geology and resource potential that could allow huge returns for our shareholders."

MLK 2018-2020 Exploration Plan

As part of its 2018-2020 exploration plan, the Company continues to process rock and glacial till sampling conducted at the Caledonia Brook property and will drive discovery on known and potential targets on properties controlled by coincident anomalous overlaps with high gold values.

Preliminary analyses have demonstrated that rocks along the 300+km Victoria Lake-Grand Falls and Caledonia Brook & Crippleback Lake Shear Zones have undergone major alteration resulting in increased mineralization potential. Soil, till, and rock geochemistry now covers an area of approximately 1,295 ha (12.95 sq km), or about 18.5 per cent of MLK's flagship Au properties located in Central Newfoundland : Caledonia Brook, Golden Eye , and Manuels .

MLK President and CEO, Paul Smith , says excitement is building around the company's recent observations.

"From soil sampling and the geological mapping of alteration types to the delineation of structures on our target zones, we have really taken our time to get this right," added Smith. "Credit goes to the MLK team for being meticulous and highly observant in their pursuit of exploration excellence. We are excited about our work in 2022."

Smith is also heralding the Company's move to engage Ottawa -based heavy mineral geochemistry and exploration firm, Overburden Drilling Management Ltd. (ODM), to undertake glacial till sampling programs on selected portions of the Company's Caledonia Brook property. With MLK's earlier collection of 23 samples along the northwestern portion of the property, ODM has now collected an additional 111 samples, each weighing approximately 11 kilograms. Results are expected to be reported on all 134 samples in late January once mineral separation and identification has been completed by ODM.

Management and Board of Directors

The Company is pleased to announce it has initiated the creation of an independent Advisory Panel to provide input to both management and the Board of Directors. Seeking five highly qualified professionals from a broad spectrum of disciplines, the Panel will reflect the Company's increased awareness around diversity and inclusion within the mining industry. With three members currently appointed, management will seek two additional candidates to round out the panel's wide range of interests and expertise.  Further details will be provided in January 2022 once all five members have been confirmed.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Breaks US$2,000 Twice, Fed Hikes Again

The gold price broke the US$2,000 per ounce mark twice this week as investors looking for a safe haven gravitated toward the yellow metal. Gold has only passed this key level a couple of times in the past — first in July 2020 amid global COVID-19 pressures, and next in February 2022 on the back of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

This week's rise came as market turmoil continued after the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank. Credit Suisse (NYSE:CS) was also in the headlines after news hit that it will be bought by rival UBS (NYSE:UBS) in a deal worth US$3.25 billion.

Meanwhile, back in the US, First Republic Bank (NYSE:FRC) appears to have narrowly avoided a similar fate after a group of Wall Street banks banded together to contribute US$30 billion in deposits. First Republic is down close to 90 percent year-to-date.

Gold Price Breaks Through US$2,000 for Second Time in a Week

For the second time in a week, the price of gold reached and briefly surpassed a price per ounce of US$2,000.

The precious metal cleared through that mark on Thursday (March 23) around 2:00 p.m. EDT, just three days after it reached US$2,000 for the first time in 2023. The initial instance came on Monday (March 20), when gold rose as high as US$2,003.58. The yellow metal stayed there only briefly, and dipped back down to about the US$1,935 level mid-week.

Gold has been on the rise due to recent market volatility, led by the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) in the US. Since the institution's failure on March 10, gold has jumped in value by approximately 10 percent.
