Scottie Resources Corp. (" Scottie " or the " Company ") (TSXV: SCOT) is pleased to report assay results for the first ever drill program at the Domino Zone, including a high-grade intercept of 12.4 gt gold and 8.7 gt silver over 2.69 metres in which the hole ended in mineralization at a depth of 121.5 metres. Drilling also revealed near surface mineralization grading 19.9 gt gold and 71.6 gt silver over 0.94 metres hosted in a wider zone of moderate mineralization grading 2.48 gt gold and 8.63 gt silver over 15.46 metres . The Domino Zone was discovered in 2019, when high-grade surficial samples (up to 536 gt gold) were collected in an area of recent glacial retreat. The zone is located on strike, 2 kilometres west of the known high-grade deposit of the past-producing Scottie Gold Mine.

CEO, Bradley Rourke commented: "These drill results confirm our hypothesis of a high-grade gold mineralizing system occurring along strike from the past-producing Scottie Gold Mine. The 900 metre strike length of the Domino zone, combined with the 2 kilometer separation from the mine provides exceptional potential to host a large high-grade deposit. Drilling in 2021 will continue to target large high-grade dilatational zones, similar to the Scottie Gold Mine throughout the length of this structure."

Highlights

  • Initial drilling program on Domino produced numerous high-grade intervals, including:
    12.4 g/t gold and 8.7 g/t silver over 2.69 metres
    19.9 g/t gold and 71.6 g/t silver over 0.94 metres
    13.4 g/t gold and 8.11 g/t silver over 1.07 metres
  • Three new high-grade showings were discovered proximal to the Domino Zone
    • Each zone marked by a grab sample with > 50 g/t gold
  • Surficial sampling results and geophysics indicate that the mineralizing system present at Domino is at least 900 metres x 450 metres
  • New induced polarization (IP) grid defines prospective drill targets coincident with new high-grade grab sampling
  • A ~634 line-km AirTEM Electromagnetic (EM) survey was flown over the entire Scottie Gold Mine Project, including the Domino Zone, data processing and interpretation is underway

Domino Zone

Located ~2 km due west of the Scottie Gold Mine, the Domino Zone exhibits similar mineralization style, grade, and orientation to the past-producing mine. Glacial retreat has only recently exposed this area, leading to the 2019 discovery of multiple large (10+ m long) massive sulphide lenses. During the 2019 program, first pass surficial sampling returned 9 samples over 5 g/t gold, including a 5.3 m long chip sample averaging 10.5 g/t gold, with the highest-grade grab sample grading 536 g/t gold and 129 g/t silver.

The 2020 field season marked the first ever drill program at the Domino Zone with a total of 18 holes (Figure 2). Preliminary mapping and sampling of the Domino Zone indicate that mineralization is linked to two intersecting sets of discreet shear structures. Drilling was done with an oriented core setup in order to provide maximum value from the data collected. The information garnered from the 2020 drill program will be combined with newly acquired geophysics and detailed structural mapping to drill target structurally controlled high-grade ore shoots in this mineralized corridor during 2021. This release includes all drill results from the Domino Zone.

Quality Assurance and Control

Results from samples were analyzed at MSALABS in Langley, Canada (an ISO 9001 accredited facility). The sampling program was undertaken by Company personnel under the direction of Dr. Thomas Mumford. A secure chain of custody is maintained in transporting and storing of all samples. Gold was assayed using a fire assay with atomic absorption spectrometry and gravimetric finish when required (+9 g/t Au). Analysis by four acid digestion with 48 element ICP-MS analysis was conducted on all samples with silver and base metal over-limits being re-analyzed by emission spectrometry.

Thomas Mumford, Ph.D., P.Geo and VP Exploration of Scottie, a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed the technical information contained in this news release on behalf of the Company.

Figure 3: Drill hole SR20-29 – Textural example of high-grade gold mineralization present within the Domino zone – sample above graded 19.9 g/t gold and 71.6 g/t silver over 0.94 metres is available at https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/aa6058ae-d8ec-43da-8222-eab6a0326e95 . The host felsic volcanic rocks are cut by an oxidized, vuggy, sheared quartz vein with intense limonite alteration. All primary textures have been destroyed by strain and alteration. Thin bands of chlorite and sericite trend along shear fabric. Shear contains ~15% pyrite and ~5% pyrrhotite.

Why Does the US Federal Reserve Hike Interest Rates? (Updated 2022)

The US Federal Reserve, inflation and interest rates have consistently made headlines in recent months.

Recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic has unleashed demand across industries, while global supply chains have been hampered by factors like Russia's war in Ukraine and continued lockdowns in China due to the country's zero-COVID policy.

This global supply and demand imbalance has led to rising prices for a wide range of consumer products, from gas to groceries. The result has been a loss in purchasing power for US consumers as their dollar needs to stretch further.

Advancing Donlin Gold to Prepare the Project for the Next Phase of Development; Robust Treasury of $132 Million in Cash and Term Deposits, with $25 Million of Receivables in 2023

  • The 42,334-meter drill program is wrapping-up for the year. The joint release issued by NOVAGOLD, Barrick and Donlin Gold on July 28, 2022 reported further encouraging assays, with more high-grade gold intercepts that demonstrated good grade continuity. Additional results will be issued in the coming weeks.
  • With Donlin Gold's largest budget in over a decade, our focus is on the path forward, subject to Donlin Gold LLC Board approval, toward the preparation of an updated feasibility study. To this end, the drill program is providing the data for the geologic modelling and interpretation work for the updated resource model while we engage in engineering studies, as well as pursue our comprehensive environmental and community relations activities.
  • NOVAGOLD's strong cash position of $132 million as of August 31, 2022, with additional funds of $25 million due in July 2023 from Newmont Corporation, should be sufficient to advance Donlin Gold to a construction decision.
