Sixty North Gold Announces Engagement of Mira Geoscience for Modelling to Refine Drill Targets for Silver- and Gold-Rich VMS Discovery at the Mon Gold Property, and Grant of Incentive Share Options

- September 2nd, 2020

Sixty North is pleased to announce that it will be working with Mira Geoscience Ltd. to create a 3D integrated interpretation of existing VTEM and exploration data.

Sixty North Gold Mining Ltd. (CSE:SXTY) (OTC Pink:SXNTF) (FSE:2F4) (the “Company” or “Sixty North”) Sixty North is pleased to announce that it will be working with Mira Geoscience Ltd. (“Mira”) to create a 3D integrated interpretation of existing VTEM and exploration data. Mira will construct a number of constrained VTEM integrated inversion models to refine drill targeting on Sixty North’s recently discovered volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) system at its Mon Property, Yellowknife Gold Belt, NWT. The work is expected to include geological modelling, constrained magnetic and conductivity inversions, combined with plate modelling. Several anomalies have been identified in a 2019 VTEM Plus © survey, one of which is exposed and has been trenched, revealing the silver- and gold-rich nature of that VMS horizon (5656 Zone). This weakly conductive horizon is 240 m long and trench assays include 0.45m of 203 gpt silver, 1.0 gpt gold, 0.59% lead and 0.96% zinc and 1.0 m of 82 gpt silver, 1.2 gpt gold, 0.26% lead and 0.02% zinc (see NR October 17, 2019).

A much larger and stronger conductor occurs along this same stratigraphy 340 m away. This conductor is up to 1,000 m long and presents in two stacked horizons showing 500 m peaks separated by 130 m. A similar twin anomaly occurs higher up in the same stratigraphic unit offset 270 m to the north where the felsic unit thickens to 210 m. Rock samples in the vicinity of this unexposed anomaly are enriched in silver, zinc, lead and copper with the exposed 5656 Zone primarily being enriched in silver, gold and zinc.

Dr. Dave Webb, President and CEO states, “We’re pleased to move forward on the silver- and gold-rich VMS. Mira’s expertise in extracting useful information from the geophysical data will assist us in targeting our drill holes with precision and accuracy.”

Dr. D.R. Webb, Ph.D., P.Geol., P.Eng. is the Qualified Person within the meaning of NI 43-101 and is responsible for the technical details of this release.
