Red Pine Intersects High-Grade Gold in the Minto Vein, 109.37 g/t gold over 2.68 metres including 314 g/t gold over 0.84 metre

Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: RPX) ("Red Pine" or the "Company") is pleased to report new and notable results from its 2021 drilling program at the Wawa Gold Project, including the discovery of high-grade gold mineralization in the Minto Vein 30 metres down-dip of the current boundary of the Minto Mine Deposit inferred resource.

Highlights of the 2021 Drilling Program ( Tables 1 and 2, Figure 1 )

  • Intersection in SD-21-298A of 109.37 g/t gold (un-cut) over 2.68 metres true width (TW) in the Minto Vein, including 314 g/t gold over 0.84 metres (TW) and 26.93 g/t gold over 0.95 metre (TW), 30 metres away from the current boundary of the resource.
  • Extension of high-grade gold mineralization in SD-21-298A in the newly identified Sadowski Gold Zone with the intersection of 24.8 g/t gold over 1.15 metres core length (CL).
  • Visible gold has been observed in 3 different veins in the Jubilee Shear Zone in SD-21-298A (results pending).

" The confirmation that high-grade gold mineralization extends down-dip of the current resource of the Minto Mine deposit is a significant development for the Wawa Gold Project. With the overlapping relationship between the Minto Mine and the Jubilee Shear Zones, we have two exploration targets that are testing concurrently with the same drill hole. Additionally, the extension of high-grade gold mineralization in the Sadowski Gold Zone continues to show that the property has significant greenfield exploration potential.

Red Pine has two active drill rigs on-site that are concurrently testing the Surluga deposit to the North and South, and the Minto Mine Deposit. A third drill is on site waiting for a crew with which the Company will test some of the greenfield targets near the historic Darwin Grace mine." Quentin Yarie, President and CEO.

Diamond Drilling

As part of its on-going 2021 exploration drilling program, Red Pine is testing the northern and southern depth extensions of the Surluga Deposit and the Minto Mine South Deposit. One drill rig is active at the northern end of the Surluga Deposit and one drill rig is active at the southern end of the Surluga Deposit. The southern drill is also testing the Minto Mine South Deposit.

At the southern end of the Surluga Deposit, in holes SD-21-296A, 297A and 298A, the Jubilee Shear Zone was successfully intersected up to 400 metres away from the current boundary of the Surluga Deposit resource. Results in the Jubilee Shear Zone for holes SD-21-296A and 297A have been released, whereas those for 298A remain pending (bottom half of hole 298A). Visible gold has been observed in 3 different veins in the Jubilee Shear Zone in SD-21-298A.

Drilling at the southern end of the Surluga Deposit also resulted in the discovery of the down-dip extension of the Minto Vein in the Minto Mine Shear Zone in SD-21-297A, and to the discovery of significant mineralization in the Minto Vein in SD-21-298A. Additional drilling is necessary to define the size and extent of this new zone of high-grade gold mineralization in the Minto Vein.

Hole SD-21-298A also continues to expand the potential of the newly discovered Sadowski Gold Zone, a new near-surface high-grade zone of mineralization (Figure 2). The Sadowski Gold Zone is formed by a network of quartz veins variably transposed in superimposed shearing.

At the northern end of the Surluga Deposit, drilling indicated that the Jubilee Shear Zone extends down-dip of the current limit of diamond drilling in the area. In hole SD-21-301 (assay results pending), visible gold has been observed in two quartz veins in two separate domains of the Jubilee Shear Zone.

*Results in the Sadowski Gold Zone are presented as core length and are estimated to be between 40% and 80% true width. Additional drilling is necessary to constrain the geometry of that zone of mineralization.

On-site Quality Assurance/Quality Control ("QA/QC") Measures

Drill core samples were transported in security sealed bags for analyses at Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario. Individual samples were labelled, placed in plastic sample bags and sealed. Groups of samples were then placed into durable rice bags and then shipped. The residual coarse reject portions of the samples remain in storage if further work or verification is needed.

Red Pine has implemented a quality-control program to comply with best practices in the sampling and analysis of drill core. As part of its QA/QC program, Red Pine inserts external gold standards (low to high grade) and blanks every 20 samples in addition to random standards, blanks, and duplicates.

VIDEO — Nick Santiago: Gold Can Still Pull Back to US$1,500 Before All-time High

The gold price has been on the rise for the last few months, but Nick Santiago, CEO and chief market strategist at, still believes a big pullback to the US$1,500 per ounce level is possible.

"I'm not bearish gold at the moment, but if I do get a sell signal, I think the next leg down takes you to that US$1,500 level, which would be the ultimate buy area," he explained to the Investing News Network. "I think that's going to be your chance to really get into gold for the long term. And then I do think gold ultimately breaks out to a new all-time high."

In terms of exactly how high gold could go in 2023, Santiago said he doesn't expect US$5,000 or US$10,000 like some market watchers are projecting. However, he does see the high US$2,000s, or possibly even US$3,000, as possible.

VIDEO — EB Tucker: Gold, Silver Price Levels to Watch, 2023 Investing Strategies

With the new year ahead, "Why Gold? Why Now?" author EB Tucker shared his thoughts on gold and silver, saying that US$2,000 per ounce and US$30 per ounce are important levels for investors to watch.

"US$2,000's got to be a 2023 story," he told the Investing News Network when asked if gold could reach that key price this year. "The way it looks right now, you're $60 away. I think it could happen fast."

Pointing to gold's rise of about US$300 since early November, Tucker said that the futures market sets the spot price, and activity in that arena has stopped weighing on the yellow metal over the last several months.
