  • Corporation reports results from first three holes out of a seven-hole, 2,502-metre program

  • Best results include:

    • Hole OBS-20-002: 47.4 g/t Au, 87.6 g/t Ag and 7.06% Cu over 1.1 metres, and 67.1 g/t Au, 40.1 g/t Ag and 2.32% Cu over 0.5 metres
    • Hole OBS-20-001: 12.45 g/t Au, 17.7 g/t Ag and 0.53% Cu over 0.65 metres
  • Strong results warrant follow-up 10,000-metre drilling program, to start in the Spring

TomaGold Corporation (TSXV: LOT) (" TomaGold " or the " Corporation ") is pleased to report the initial results of its 2,502-metre drilling program on its wholly-owned Obalski property, in Chibougamau, Quebec.

Drilling began in December 2020 and ended on February 18, 2021. The program consisted of seven holes, six of which were drilled on two separate sections (450 E and 120 E), while the seventh hole was designed to test the rock type at the eastern property boundary. The goal of the program was to better define the A-Po Zone on sections 450 E and 120 E, located 330 metres apart, with very little exploration work in between. Drilling was also aimed at intersecting the A, C and D zones, some of which have already been mined underground and the subject of minor surface work.

The following table shows the gold, silver and copper results for the first three holes, on section 450 E:

*The width shown is the core length. True width is estimated at 65-70% of core length.

"These are great results for our first three holes on Obalski, as they show that the property hosts high gold, silver and copper grades, warranting a larger drilling program to define its potential," said David Grondin, President and CEO of TomaGold. "Once we have the additional input from the three holes drilled on section 120 E, we'll prepare a follow-up 10,000-metre diamond drilling program that we will start in the spring. The new program could yield some very interesting results, as our technical team will focus on targets both along strike and at depth that appear to have been overlooked by the previous owners."

Sample preparation and analysis
TomaGold has implemented and is adhering to a strict Quality Assurance/Quality Control program for the present drilling program. The core is sawed in half, with one half kept as a witness sample in Chibougamau and the other half shipped directly by bus to ALS Chemex in Val-d'Or, Quebec. The half core is then ground to 1/8" and split into two halves by ALS. One half is kept as a witness (reject) by ALS in Val-d'Or. ALS pulverizes the other half at 150 mesh and takes a 50 g sample for analysis. The rest is kept at ALS and identified as "pulp".

The technical content of this press release has been reviewed and approved by André Jean, P.Eng., the Corporation's Director of Exploration and a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101.

About the Obalski property
The Obalski property, which covers 345 hectares, including a 33-hectare mineral concession, lies about 2 km south of Chibougamau, Quebec. Discovered in 1928, the Obalski deposit produced 100,273 tonnes at grades of 1.14% Cu, 2.08 g/t Au and 6.04 g/t Ag from the A zone between 1964 to 1972, and around 9,000 tonnes at a reported grade of 8.5 g/t Au from the D zone in 1984 (Source: SIGEOM and Camchib Exploration internal reports).

Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV: VSR (OTCQX: VMNGF) ("Vanstar", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent ("LOI") with IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD") to acquire a 75% interest in the Calder-Bousquet property (the "Property") also referred as the Bousquet-Odyno project. The Property consists of 37 contiguous mining claims covering approximately 1,490 ha and is located directly south of highway 117 between the towns of Rouyn-Noranda and Malartic. The Property lies within the Abitibi greenstone gold belt, along the Cadillac break, a prolific gold bearing regional structure that has produced 100 million ounces of gold since 1900. Historical drilling on the property prior to IAMGOLD has identified a number of gold zones, including the Calder-Bousquet Zones No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5. Historical drilling has been relatively shallow, down to approximately 250 metres ("m").

From 2010 to 2016, IAMGOLD engaged in successive exploration programs including surface geological mapping and outcrop stripping to develop and refine structural controls relating to the historical gold zones, geophysics and geochemistry surveys to guide drilling programs and the completion of just over 20,000 m of diamond drilling to test historical gold zones and other exploration targets.

TDG Gold Corp. 'S First Drill Results at Shasta Report Up To 25 G/T Gold and >100 G/T Silver

TDG Gold Corp. (TSXV: TDG) (the "Company" or "TDG") is very pleased to announce the first drill results of its 2021 Shasta diamond drill campaign from holes SH21-004 and SH21-005. These holes are located over 50 metres ("m") south of historical underground workings and provide the first drill section and new samples of in-situ mineralization. These results have been received directly from SGS Canada Inc. ("SGS") and are the first preliminary 2021 drill results released for TDG's Shasta project which is located in the Toodoggone district of north-central B.C. The results are subject to further quality assurance and quality control assessment, and several over limit re-assays are pending for gold (>10 grams per tonne "gt") and silver (>100 gt) as shown below. The highest grade gold ("Au") and silver ("Ag") assay intervals are shown in Table 1 below. The assay results reported either side of the high grade gold and silver intercepts are indicative of halo style mineralization at Shasta (see Table 2) and which has been demonstrated to exist in epithermal gold and silver deposits in the Toodoggone district
