Snowline Gold Significantly Expands Cliff and Tosh Land Positions

  • Cliff Gold Project expanded 4.5-fold to 2,724 hectares to cover an additional 3 target areas
  • Tosh Gold Project expanded 2.3-fold to 3,700 hectares to connect zones of gold mineralization along known structural trends

SNOWLINE GOLD CORP. (CSE:SGD) (the "Company" or "Snowline") is pleased to announce it has staked additional claims around the Cliff and Tosh Gold Projects, expanding them by 2,121 hectares and 2,069 hectares, respectively. The new claims consolidate the land positions at each project and cover additional prospective zones with historical elevated gold-in-soil sampling results

"We are excited to have consolidated Snowline's position around the Cliff and Tosh projects," said the Company's Chief Executive Office Nikolas Matysek, "Our expanded claims now fully cover all of the high-priority targets, as well as prospective adjacent ground, identified by earlier prospecting. Snowline has developed a diversified portfolio of gold projects throughout the Yukon, and we will examine all our options as we continue to advance our portfolio of projects this summer."

The Cliff Project

Snowline has staked 102 new claims around the Company's Cliff Gold Project located in southwestern Yukon's Ruby Range placer gold district (see March 16, 2021 release - Snowline Gold Corp. Introduces 100% Owned Cliff Gold Project for additional information). The total size of the Cliff Project has been expanded by 2,121 hectares to a new total of 2,724 hectares. The new claims provide better coverage around the main "Cliff" zone, including a major fault zone downslope from the target. The new staking also covers three additional target areas:

  • The "Hi" zone is a 1.4 km long zone of elevated soils and talus fines over an exposure of the Ruby Range batholith. Eighteen of 44 historical soil samples in this area returned values above 40 ppb Au, to a maximum of 6.8 g/t Au.
  • The "Strike" zone is a 1.5 x 1.5 km area with variably anomalous gold and arsenic in historical soils and talus fines to a maximum concentration of 1.26 g/t Au along the contact of the Kluane schist and the Ruby Range batholith.
  • The "Spruce" zone has historic stream sediment samples up to 0.46 g/t Au that are downslope from soil samples up to 0.5 g/t Au.

Planned follow-up in 2021 will include detailed mapping and prospecting.

The Tosh Project

The Company has staked 99 new claims around the Tosh Gold Project in the southwestern Yukon, which is located in a geological and structural setting similar to Newmont's Coffee deposits (see March 23, 2021 release - Snowline Gold Corp. Introduces 100% Owned Tosh Gold Project for additional information). The total size of the Tosh Project has been expanded by 2,069 hectare to a new total of 3,700 hectares. The new staking connects high priority target areas into a single claim block. The larger claim position allows for the first detailed systematic look at the mineralizing system and better coverage along strike of kilometre-scale mineralized trends.

At Tosh, Snowline is gearing up for regional assessment and advancing existing targets in 2021. The regional assessment will be done through detailed stream sediment surveys. Geophysical surveying and geological mapping will guide target advancement.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Breaks US$2,000 Twice, Fed Hikes Again

The gold price broke the US$2,000 per ounce mark twice this week as investors looking for a safe haven gravitated toward the yellow metal. Gold has only passed this key level a couple of times in the past — first in July 2020 amid global COVID-19 pressures, and next in February 2022 on the back of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

This week's rise came as market turmoil continued after the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank. Credit Suisse (NYSE:CS) was also in the headlines after news hit that it will be bought by rival UBS (NYSE:UBS) in a deal worth US$3.25 billion.

Meanwhile, back in the US, First Republic Bank (NYSE:FRC) appears to have narrowly avoided a similar fate after a group of Wall Street banks banded together to contribute US$30 billion in deposits. First Republic is down close to 90 percent year-to-date.

Gold Price Breaks Through US$2,000 for Second Time in a Week

For the second time in a week, the price of gold reached and briefly surpassed a price per ounce of US$2,000.

The precious metal cleared through that mark on Thursday (March 23) around 2:00 p.m. EDT, just three days after it reached US$2,000 for the first time in 2023. The initial instance came on Monday (March 20), when gold rose as high as US$2,003.58. The yellow metal stayed there only briefly, and dipped back down to about the US$1,935 level mid-week.

Gold has been on the rise due to recent market volatility, led by the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) in the US. Since the institution's failure on March 10, gold has jumped in value by approximately 10 percent.
