Prosper Gold Corp. (" Prosper Gold " or the " Company ") (TSXV:PGX) is pleased to report infill till sampling results from the 2020 exploration program at the Golden Sidewalk Project (the " Project ") in the Birch-Uchi region of Red Lake.


  • Infill till sampling has outlined a 3,300 x 500 metre pristine gold grain-in-till anomaly which remains open for expansion
  • T ill samples containing up to 882 pristine gold grains
  • Large-scale ( > 5 k ilometre ) conceptualized gold target, referred to as the "Golden Corridor" , now supported by pristine gold grain-in-till results

"The Golden Corridor has become an exciting exploration target with the recently outlined pristine gold grain-in-till anomaly," commented Peter Bernier, CEO. "The abundance and pristine nature of the gold grains suggests the presence of a gold system in the immediate vicinity. The anomaly remains open and we will be working to expand upon these results while preparing for the 2021 drilling season. This is a new exploration target on the Project which has seen no drilling to date."

Till sampling

Infill till sampling results at the UC Anomaly (see the C ompany's Nov . 25 news release for information ) collected late in the 2020 exploration season have been received by the Company. Of the 40 samples collected and processed, 32 samples have pristine grain counts higher than 10, with sample UC-13 containing 882 pristine gold grains ( Figure s 1 and 2 ). The high number of exceptionally large pristine grains in sample UC-13 resulted in a contained gold concentration of 110.8 g/t gold ( Table 1 ). Glacially transported gold grains with a pristine morphology have not travelled more than 100 metres ( Averill, S.A., 2001 ).

Infill till samples were collected on a 200 x 200 metre grid where adequate sample media was available. The survey infilled and extended the previously outlined UC Anomaly in both the up-ice (east-northeast) and down-ice (west-southwest) directions ( Figure 3 ). The anomaly remains open to the east, north and west.

The Golden Corridor lies immediately north of a regional angular unconformity between the Narrow Lake and Balmer Assemblages ( Figure 4 ). Such regional unconformities may localize structural corridors for hydrothermal fluid migration and gold mineralization. At least two linear targets with potential strike lengths of greater than 5 kilometres have been identified based on the coincidence of IP resistivity high and linear magnetic low signatures and their proximity to the regional unconformity. These targets are now supported by the existence of a significant pristine gold grain-in-till anomaly.

About the Golden Sidewalk

The Golden Sidewalk is a district-scale gold exploration project covering over 160 square kilometres of contiguous mineral claims and mining leases (see the C ompany's Aug. 10, Sept. 8 , and Sept. 15, 2020 news releases for details) in the western Birch-Uchi Greenstone Belt, approximately 60 km east of Red Lake, Ontario. The vehicle-accessible project straddles 12 kilometres of the Balmer Assemblage – Narrow Lake Assemblage unconformity, a regional-scale feature that has been the Red Lake exploration guide, but which has seen limited exploration in the project area. The recently identified "Golden Corridor" lies immediately north of the unconformity in the western portion of the property and is characterized as a highly prospective, greater than 5 kilometre trend of coincident favourable magnetic and resistivity lineaments supported by highly anomalous gold-in-till samples covering 3.3 by 0.5 kilometres. Historical drilling programs at the Bathurst Mine, Joe Vein, KT vein, Dunkin and Vihonen prospects reported high-grade gold intercepts which warrant follow-up.

QA/QC Procedures

Till samples were collected from below the colluvial soil profile at a medial depth of 50 to 75 centimeters and placed into 5-gallon plastic pails which were sealed and shipped to Overburden Drilling Management Ltd. in Nepean, Ontario for processing. The gold grain testing involves extracting an impure preliminary heavy mineral concentrate from the -2 mm matrix of each sediment sample by tabling, separating any recovered gold grains from the table concentrate and measuring each grain and classifying it according to its degree of physical wear. Average tabled sample weights were 10.9 kg for the infill batch presented in this news release.

Rob McEwen: Gold for Wealth, Copper for Electrification — How to Position Right

After a slow summer, where should resource investors be positioning right now?

In an interview, Rob McEwen, chairman and chief owner of McEwen Mining (TSX:MUX,NYSE:MUX), reiterated his positive stance on gold and copper, two metals to which his company has strong exposure.

In terms of gold, McEwen noted that central banks around the world continue trying to cool inflation with interest rate hikes, which is widely perceived as a headwind for the yellow metal. But in his view that's not the case.
