VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA TheNewswire - December 16, 2020 - (TSXV:NRG ) (OTC :NRGOF ) ( Frankfurt:X6C) Newrange Gold Corp. (" Newrange " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce that it is finalizing plans for a winter exploration program to begin in January on its North Birch Project east of Red Lake, Ontario. The Company is planning on conducting approximately 90 line kilometres of Induced Polarization (IP) geophysics and the results will be used to generate targets for follow up diamond drilling.

The primary target at North Birch is the sheared limb of a folded iron formation sequence, modeled after the Musselwhite Gold Mine, approximately 190 kilometres to the north and operated by Newmont-Goldcorp.  The 8 kilometre long target horizon at North Birch is recessive and not exposed at surface but is interpreted from a prominent fold pattern in the airborne magnetics (see map here ).  The target horizon projects 2 kilometres along strike into the Argosy Gold Mine, which closed in 1952 after producing 101,875 oz Au at 12.7 g/t Au (Ontario government archives ).  There are also multiple gold showings in the rocks to the south of the main target horizon and in iron formation elsewhere on the North Birch property, yet the main target horizon has never been drilled.

"We are looking forward to initiating exploration at North Birch," stated Robert Archer, Newrange's CEO.  "As we didn't receive our permits until September due to COVID-related delays, we missed the summer field season but, during that time, we merged and reprocessed the three airborne magnetic surveys that have been flown over the property in past years.  This has clearly delineated the main target horizon and the IP will be used to detect areas of sulphide enrichment that may be related to gold mineralization."

It is anticipated that field crews will mobilize to the property in early January, although the exact timing will be weather dependent.  Once the IP has been completed and interpreted (approximately 4-6 weeks), an application for a drill permit will be filed as soon as possible.

In other news, Newrange has signed a one-year agreement with NAI Interactive Ltd. ("NAI") of Vancouver, BC to provide marketing services to the growing Chinese investment community.  Total payable under the terms of the contract is $60,000 and NAI will be granted 150,000 stock options in Newrange at a price of $0.14.  The stock options will vest as to 25% every three months with a term of two years from the date of grant.

NAI has been bridging the gap between the mining industry and Chinese investors for more than 20 years and is a leading market intelligence and investor relations service provider for fast growing public companies trading on the North American stock exchanges.

Best Gold Stocks on the TSX

After reaching an all-time high last summer, the gold price has put out an underwhelming performance for much of 2021, leaving many investors wondering when it will take off again.

Values for the precious metal have failed to regain January’s momentum. Despite brief efforts in May and November, the gold price has struggled to stay above the US$1,800 per ounce mark.

For most of 2021, the yellow metal has battled a strengthening US dollar and gains in 10 year treasury yields. Investor risk appetite has also impeded growth for the safe haven asset.

Rockridge Announces Passing of Director Richard Kusmirski

Rockridge Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ROCK ) (OTCQB: RRRLF ) (Frankfurt: RR0 ) ("Rockridge" or the "Company") announces with deep sorrow that a Director of the Company, Richard ("Rick") Kusmirski, P.Geo., M.Sc., passed away on Friday, Dec. 3 rd in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, at the age of 68 after a lengthy illness. Rockridge wishes to extend our sincere condolences to his family, friends, and business associates. Rick was an accomplished exploration geologist with more than four decades of experience throughout the world but primarily focused in North America, specifically the Athabasca Basin. He has been an active member of the Saskatchewan mineral exploration and mining community for many years and will be dearly missed.

Rick actively participated in the discovery of a number of uranium, gold and base metal deposits, and for several years, in his capacity as Exploration Manager, he directed Cameco Corporation's uranium exploration projects in the Athabasca Basin. In 1999, Rick joined JNR Resources becoming Vice President of Exploration in 2000. Subsequently, he directed the exploration program that led to the discovery of the Maverick Zone on the Moore Lake uranium project with then partner Kennecott Canada. Rick later became JNR's President and CEO in January of 2001, and continued leading the company until February of 2013, JNR was acquired by Denison Mines Corp. by way of a friendly all-share take-over bid. Rick also served as the industry Chair and Director of the Exploration Section of the Saskatchewan Mining Association for many years and was a director of Rockridge Resources Ltd., Bessor Minerals Inc. and several other publicly traded companies.
