  • TLMZ21-12 intersected 5.80 metres averaging 47.56 g/t Au within a broader interval of 12.60 metres averaging 23.76 g/t Au
  • Intersection is interpreted to be a new zone of mineralization, sub-parallel to the Main Zone
  • TLMZ21-12 includes the second highest grade interval ever reported at Tartan Lake

Satori Resources Inc. (TSXV: BUD) ("Satori" or the "Company") is pleased to announce additional results from the completed Phase One drill program at the 100% owned Tartan Lake property, Flin Flon, Manitoba.

TLMZ21-11 and TLMZ21-12 both targeted the down plunge continuation of the Main Zone mineralization, approximately 100 metres to the west of TLMZ21-01 (4.15 metres averaging 9.73 g/t Au) and 75 and 150 metres below the historic holes defining the resource limits.

Both holes intersected two distinct zones of mineralization. A hanging wall ("HW") zone, not observed in the earlier holes, completed 100 metres to the east, associated with quartz-feldspar intrusives, and was intersected 20-25 metres above the quartz-carbonate-tourmaline veins defining the Main Zone.

TLMZ21-12 intersected 5.80 meters averaging 47.56 g/t Au in the HW zone followed by a Main Zone intercept of 1.60 metres averaging 7.25 g/t Au (Ref. Figure 1.0 and Table 1.0). The Company advises that results of the standard screen metallic assays for the HW zone are pending. The Company believes that it is unlikely the screen metallic results will materially affect the reported results.

TLMZ21-11 intersected 5.25 metres averaging 2.25 g/t in the HW zone followed by 2.10 metres averaging 8.87 g/t Au in the Main Zone (Ref. Figure 1.0 and Table 1.0).

Jennifer Boyle, Chief Executive Officer, states that "These latest results clearly demonstrate that additional discovery potential exists at depth along the Main Zone plunge. Over 500 drill holes have been completed at Tartan Lake. To have one hole of a small drill program intercept the second highest grade ever reported at Tartan Lake is a very encouraging result. The hanging wall mineralization intersected in hole TLMZ21-12 may represent a new zone of gold mineralization that parallels the Main Zone. The signature quartz-carbonate veining is absent in the hanging wall zone. The high-grade mineralization is associated with felsic intrusives and increased sulphide content, which is further evidence suggesting that the hanging wall mineralization could reflect a new zone of mineralization. Additional drilling to evaluate the extent of the hanging wall mineralization at depth to the west is certainly a priority for 2022. We are currently finalizing a ground based induced polarity ("IP") survey of the Main, South, McFadden and Ruby Lake targets. We believe that the IP survey will identify additional, undrilled targets within the host shear zones. Our plan is to complete the IP survey in Q1-2022 and start a follow up drill program late in Q1-2022."

ABOUT Satori Resources Inc. (TSXV: BUD)

Satori is a Toronto-based mineral exploration and development company whose primary property is expanding the resource at the past producing Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project, located in the prolific Flin Flon Greenstone Belt, Manitoba.

The Tartan Lake Project (2,670 Ha.) is located approximately 12 kilometres northeast of Flin Flon, Manitoba, and includes the Tartan Lake Mine (1986-1989) which produced 36,000 ounces of gold before the mine was shut down due to, in part, the price of gold falling below USD$390. Remaining infrastructure includes: an indicated resource estimate of 240,000 ounces averaging 6.32 g/t Au (see news release February 23, 2017), an all-season access road, grid connected power supply, mill, mechanical, warehouse and office buildings, tailing impoundment and a 2,100 metre decline and developed underground mining galleries to a depth of 300 metres from surface. Gold mineralization is associated with anastomosing quartz-carbonate veins hosted in east-west striking, steeply dipping shear zones up to 30 metres in width. The veins vary from several centimetres to several metres in width and gold grades vary from 1.0 to +100 g/t. Satori believes the mineral resources of the project are currently limited by drill coverage.

Gold has historically been considered an inflation-resistant investment that is a reliable addition to any investor's portfolio. Even though the price of gold can experience drastic changes similar to a stock or bond, gold typically exhibits an overall consistent price increase when viewing it as a long-term investment.

While many investors may look for companies with new exploration projects, past-producing gold mines often offer some of the best exposure to gold. Companies that redevelop past-producing mines have a quicker path to production by leveraging existing infrastructure, workforce and historical data. Combined with the right management team, this provides ideal conditions for a successful mining venture.

Satori Resources (TSXV:BUD) is one such company. Its flagship project is the 100 percent owned Tartan Lake Gold project near Flin Flon, Manitoba. The past-producing Tartan Lake Gold Mine was operational from 1986 to 1989 but was shut down when the price of gold fell below $400 per ounce in 1989

Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project

The Flin Flon Snow Lake Greenstone Belt, home of the Tartan Lake Gold project, is considered one of the largest and most prolific greenstone belts in the world. Greenstone belts are unique geologic features that can contain numerous minerals, such as copper, silver and zinc. More importantly, there is a strong presence of gold deposits in greenstone belts. The Tartan Lake Gold project contains 20 mineral claims across 2,670 hectares, and produced 47,000 oz of gold from 1987 to 1989.

In an interview with INN, Satori Resources CEO Jennifer Boyle shared that the company has a dual-track strategy to advance the Tartan Lake Gold project. This strategy includes a primary focus of resource expansion (exploration) while simultaneously evaluating putting the mine back into production.

Satori Resources has a strong management team with the experience required to help nurture this promising project. Jennifer Boyle, the President and CEO, brings decades of experience as a mining executive who has a successful history of co-founding and re-organizing mineral companies. Peter Shippen, Chairman, has 20 years of experience as an investor in capital markets and brings his financial expertise to the company. Wes Hanson is the lead Technical Director who worked underground at the Tartan Lake Gold project as chief geologist during the time that the mine was in production (1986 to 1989). Wes brings a wealth of historic information and directs the technical activities at the Tartan Lake Gold project. Doug Flegg, Director, brings 30 years of mining and finance experience, along with a technical background in geology. Jeffrey Kilborn, director, is a seasoned finance executive.

Company Highlights

  • Satori's July 2021 drilling campaign extended the Main Zone over 200 metres down plunge, evidencing that mineralization remains open at depth, along plunge.
  • The grade and thickness of the mineralization in certain holes drilled in the summer of 2021 are not only consistent with the historical drill results but are also comparable with results currently being reported at some of Canada's most exciting gold discoveries in Red Lake and Newfoundland.
  • Satori drilled longest and highest grade interval at the South Zone, averaging 9.59 g/t Au over 11.75 metres, and Main Zone returned 9.73 g/t Au over 4.15 metres.
  • For the first time in decades this project is benefitting from a new team applying modern day techniques in a robust gold environment. The entire project area has been overlooked for decades and is sparsely-drilled.
  • During fall 2021 ground reconnaissance program investigating remote showings, the low water levels exposed significant outcrop along the shoreline of Batters Lake, exposing extensive zones of shearing with favourable quartz-carbonate-tourmaline veining and sulphide mineralization similar to what is observed at the Main and South Zones.
  • Satori Resources holds a 100 percent interest in the Tartan Lake Gold project (subject to a 2% NSR interest with a buy-back right) which includes a 450 mt/day processing plant.
  • The Tartan Lake Gold project sits upon one of the largest greenstone belts on the planet, a geologic feature that is known for containing gold
  • The project has existing infrastructure that will reduce the time and resources required to become operational
  • Previous operations in the Tartan Lake Gold Mine produced 47,000 ounces of gold between 1987 and 1989
  • Satori Resources is operated by a strong management team

Key Project

The Tartan Lake Gold Mine

The Tartan Lake Gold Mine covers 2,670 hectares and includes past-producing mines that have historically produced approximately 47,000 ounces of gold from 250,000 tonnes of ore. It is important to note that the previous mines did not shut down due to resource exhaustion, but due to the price of gold dropping below US$400/oz in 1989, which destroyed the profitability of the operation. The project area, while still rich in resources and containing over 20 mineral claims, has been overlooked until now.

The updated resource estimate for the Tartan Lake deposit released in 2017 stated an Indicated resource of 1,180,000 tonnes containing 240,000 ounces gold at 6.32 g/t and an Inferred resource of 240,000 tonnes containing 37,000 ounces gold at 4.89 g/t. making this an promising project.

Tartan Lake Property

The project has an existing 450 mt/day processing plant along with a decline that provides access to developed mining blocks. Satori Resources can leverage the existing infrastructure to achieve quicker production timelines. The project already contains a 450 TPD mill complex (refurbishment required), a 2,100-meter ramp, and a vent raised from the surface down to level 260. Additionally, the project area has intact and operational hydropower, full road access and an exploration database.

Satori Resources
Satori Resources Key Project

Satori Resources' dual-track strategy includes resource expansion and mine development evaluation. Satori Resources has expanded the main zone by 200 meters, a significant step in the company's roadmap. CEO Jennifer Boyle shared, "The Phase 1 results clearly demonstrate that the Main Zone continues to depth and offers an immediate opportunity to increase the mineral resources at Tartan Lake with additional drilling."

Satori Resources Exploration

Much of the project's area has remained unexplored or underexplored, providing investor upside on its discovery potential.

Scottie Resources Intercepts 11.8 g/t Gold Over 6.57 Metres and 37.2 g/t Gold Over 3.71 Metres at Scottie Gold Mine Project and Provides Corporate Update

Scottie Resources Intercepts 11.8 g/t Gold Over 6.57 Metres and 37.2 g/t Gold Over 3.71 Metres at Scottie Gold Mine Project and Provides Corporate Update

Scottie Resources Corp. (" Scottie " or the " Company ") (TSXV: SCOT), (OTCQB:SCTSF), (FSE:SR8) is pleased to report drill assays from its Scottie Gold Mine (SGM) target. Due to the parallel nature of the targeted veins, individual holes were designed to test multiple discreet targets. Highlight intercepts from the reported holes include: 11.8 gt gold over 6.57 metres, 20.6 gt gold over 2.22 metres, and 37.2 gt gold over 3.71 metres in the P, O, and M-Zones respectively. The past-producing high-grade Scottie Gold Mine is located on the Granduc Road, 35 kilometres north of the town of Stewart, BC, and is one of four primary targets that were tested during the 14,500 m program in 2021, which also includes the rapidly advancing Blueberry Zone ( November 9, 2021 ) .

"These results from Scottie Gold Mine illustrate the potential for the expansion of the historic resource at Scottie through both the extension of known ore shoots, as well as revealing the potential of previously untested targets – notably the P-zone which prior to Scottie's involvement had seen no drilling, and now we are hitting intercepts comparable to the mined stopes of the past producing mine." comments President and CEO, Brad Rourke. "The Scottie Gold Mine target continues to deliver as a cornerstone to our primary goal of developing a road accessible, 1M+ ounce high-grade gold resource at our Scottie Gold Mine Project."
