Musk Metals Defines Phase 2 Exploration Targets and Completes Detailed Structural & Geological Interpretation on Its McDonough East Property in Red Lake, Ontario

MUSK METALS CORP. ("MUSK METALS" OR THE "COMPANY") (CSE: MUSK) (OTC: EMSKF) (FSE: 1I30 ) is pleased to announce the completion of a detailed structural and geological data compilation and reinterpretation study completed by Orix Geoscience Ltd. ("Orix") on its 100% owned McDonough East Property (the "Property") located 16km northwest of Red Lake, Ontario. This report outlines structural and geological enhancements to the property and provides recommendations as to targets of merit for Musk's Phase 2 exploration program.

This reinterpretation by Orix is based on data from a recently completed high resolution heli-borne magnetic survey conducted by Prospectair Geosurveys Inc. The high-resolution MAG survey was flown over the totality of the property covering 1,535 ha. (3,793 acres) at 50m line spacings. (See news release dated September 2 nd , 2020).

This detailed structural and geological report integrated all historical lithology, mineralization, drilling and structural data with new data from Musk's recently completed MAG survey. The result of the Orix study is a far better understanding of the geological and structural framework of the property (Figure 1).

Results of Orix data compilation and reinterpretation study are as follows:

  1. New interpretation reveals that the eastern portion of the property is dominated by a suite of deformed volcanic rocks that are prospective to host gold mineralization;
  2. Similarly, deformed horizons of magnetic-rich sediments at the central-east corner of the property area may contain iron formation, an important host for orogenic gold mineralization in Archean terranes;
  3. The conglomerate horizon on the property also provides a target of merit. This horizon is proximal to the Red Lake and Campbell gold mines in the southern portion of the Red Lake greenstone belt;
  4. Interpreted releasing stepover or bend geometry along the stratigraphy-parallel structure at the northern portion of property may control the alteration and/or intrusive rocks, providing an area of rheology where gold mineralization has the potential to be deposited;
  5. A prospecting program with a focus on structural geology is recommended to further trace prospective units, contacts and structures associated with mineralization and collect structural observations to help verify the interpretation; and
  6. Soil sampling should be conducted to outline possible anomalies where outcrop is minimal.

Orix is recommending a prospecting program with a focus on structural geology is recommended to further trace prospective units, contacts and structures possibly associated with anomalous gold samples as well as collect structural observations to help verify the reinterpretation. A review of the MAG survey products produced by Prospectair for the interpretation is figured below.

About McDonough East - Property Highlights

  • Situated in the prolific Red Lake Greenstone Belt with historic production and current resources of approx. 41 million ounces Au
  • Nearby mineral occurrences with very little methodical exploration and drilling including: 0.435 g/t Au and 92.56 g/t Ag over 2.13m
  • The McDonough East property is contiguous with GoldON Resources Ltd. (GLD - TSX.V) and near Battle North Gold Corporation "Slate Bay" gold property and straddles a regional unconformity that is a key structural signature of many mines within the Red Lake Greenstone Belt.
  • Hosts regional magnetic signatures conducive to Archean-style gold mineralization
  • Four season exploration, all weather road access in an under-explored region of the Red Lake camp
  • Musk Metals is planning a Phase 2 exploration program based on a recent structural and geological data compilation and reinterpretation study completed by Orix Geoscience Ltd.

Musk Metals CEO and Director, Nader Vatanchi states, " The setting at McDonough East is ideal for gold mineralization and w e are encouraged by new data and exploration targets generated by Orix's in depth report. Phase 2 exploration will focus on further defining high priority targets and sampling with the potential for new discoveries on the property ."
