Snowline Gold Intersects Promising Quartz-Sulphide Veins in 460 Metre Step-Out at Jupiter, Commences Phase I Drilling at Valley

  • Arsenopyrite-bearing quartz-carbonate veins intersected in hole J-21-020, drilled 460 m from any previous hole and 1,100 m from high-grade discovery hole J-21-011
  • Jupiter's expanded, 4,300 m Phase I program now complete, with assays pending for 13 of 21 holes and evidence of mineralizing system encountered in all 21 holes
  • Drilling now underway on intrusion-related Valley gold target, Rogue property.

Snowline Gold Corp. (CSE:SGD)(OTCQB:SNWGF) (the "Company" or "Snowline") is pleased to provide an update on its exploration activities on its flagship Einarson and Rogue projects. Holes J-21-020 and J-21-021, the final two holes of an expanded 4,300 m phase I drill program on Einarson's Jupiter zone, intersected sulphide-bearing quartz-carbonate veins in a 460-metre step-out testing what may be a parallel structural corridor (Figure 2). Assay results from these holes are not anticipated for some time due to laboratory back-logs, but the Company recognizes the presence of such mineralization to be a significant positive indication of the potential of the Jupiter zone

"With such a big step-out, we were swinging for the fences," said Scott Berdahl, CEO and Director of Snowline. "While we don't yet have assays for these holes, it's starting to look a bit like a home run. This hole hit similar veins, alteration and gold pathfinder minerals to those of our recent J-21-011 discovery hole some 1.1 km to its south. It is almost as good as we could hope for. This caps off a very successful Phase I drill program at Jupiter, with exciting intervals already in hand and most assay results still forthcoming. We look forward to returning to Jupiter next year"

Hole J-21-020, drilled at an azimuth of 250° and dipping -50°, encountered multiple zones of arsenopyrite and pyrite including a 9.2 m zone of trace to high concentrations of arsenopyrite from 101.5 m to 110.7 m downhole, with abundant quartz veining from 106.5 m to 110.0 m (Figures 1, 3 & 4).

Hole J-21-021 was drilled from the same pad as J-21-020, also at an azimuth of 250°, but with a steeper dip of -75°. It encountered a similar zone of quartz veining from 98-105 m depth with abundant pyrite, but it lacked obvious occurrences of arsenopyrite.

Jupiter is thought to represent an epizonal orogenic gold system. It is one of nine target zones prospective for orogenic and/or Carlin-style gold mineralization currently recognized on Snowline Gold's 70%-owned, district-scale Einarson project. Adjacent projects Rogue and Ursa are prospective for intrusion-related gold and sediment-hosted gold and base metal deposits. No resources nor reserves have been calculated on any of these targets, and while current results are encouraging, they do not guarantee that economically viable ore bodies will be encountered at Jupiter or elsewhere. Readers are cautioned that without assay results, the true significance of the intersections reported herein is uncertain.


A 600-metre, phase I drilling program has commenced at the Valley zone on the Rogue project, located south of Einarson (Figure 5). This drilling targets intrusion-related gold mineralization in sheeted veining and gold-bearing structures within and around a newly-discovered intrusion thought to belong to the prolific Tombstone plutonic suite.

Snowline CEO Berdahl continued, "With the drill now turning on the first-ever drill test of the Valley zone, we're optimistic that further discovery awaits Snowline Gold this season."

Top Stories This Week: Gold Awaits Fed Meeting, Who's Funding Juniors Right Now?

The gold price remained firmly above US$1,900 per ounce this week, continuing an upward trajectory that started around the beginning of November. By Friday's (January 27) close, the yellow metal was at about US$1,927 per ounce.

Market participants were waiting for the latest PCE Price Index data, which looks at personal consumption expenditures — in other words, the prices that people in the US pay for goods and services. Released at the end of the week, the new numbers show that core PCE, which excludes food and energy, rose 4.4 percent year-on-year in December and 0.3 percent month-on-month.

Attention is now shifting to the US Federal Reserve's next meeting, which is scheduled to run from January 31 to February 1. Speculation is rife that the central bank will hike by only a quarter of a percentage point, but for now we'll have to wait and see.

Gold Mining in Nunavut: Tapping into Canada's Frontier Mining Jurisdiction

As Canada's last frontier for mineral exploration, Nunavut is also one of the most promising. Covering an area roughly the size of Western Europe, the region is incredibly rich in mineral resources, including iron ore, diamonds and oil and gas, plus a wealth of critical minerals.

In addition to this impressive mineral inventory, gold is arguably Nunavut's greatest mineral resource. Along with two current producing gold mines, the territory hosts multiple gold deposits at various stages of exploration, construction and development.

One of the most promising regions for gold exploration and discovery in Nunavut sits proximal to the Rankin Inlet. Primarily, this promise is because it hosts Canada's second largest greenstone belt — geologic formations known for having incredibly rich deposits of gold. Significant exploration and discovery has already occurred in this area, yielding both valuable data and improved geological models that can be leveraged by newcomers to the area.
