NORTH ARROW REPORTS NEW SPODUMENE MINERALIZED PEGMATITE DISCOVERIES AT LDG AND MACKAY PROJECTS, NWT

NORTH ARROW REPORTS NEW SPODUMENE MINERALIZED PEGMATITE DISCOVERIES AT LDG AND MACKAY PROJECTS, NWT

Trading Symbol:  TSXV: NAR

North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSXV: NAR) (" North Arrow") is pleased to announce the discovery of new spodumene mineralized pegmatites at its 100% owned LDG and MacKay Lithium Projects in the Northwest Territories . Highlights of recently completed field work include:

  • Discovery of the MK3 spodumene pegmatite at the MacKay Project.
  • Mapping of new spodumene pegmatite mineralization in the SD2 area at the LDG Project.
  • Over 17 simple and spodumene-bearing pegmatites have now been identified at both properties.
  • 53 rock (grab and channel-sawn) and soil samples have been submitted for lithium assay and geochemical analysis.
  • Ground magnetic and high-resolution drone orthophoto imagery surveys were completed over six priority pegmatite occurrences.

Ken Armstrong , President and CEO of North Arrow commented, "Recent exploration of North Arrow's LDG and MacKay Lithium Projects has resulted in the discovery of new spodumene mineralization at both properties and increased our confidence in the size potential of this new spodumene-bearing lithium pegmatite field. Ground magnetic, high-resolution drone imagery and bedrock mapping surveys will significantly aid in ongoing interpretation and modelling of priority pegmatites, including planning for exploration drilling in 2024."

Field work on the LDG property focused on lithium pegmatites in the SD2 and SD4 areas where earlier sampling returned assays of up to 1.7% Li 2 O and 2.1% Li 2 O, respectively (please see North Arrow news release dated September 18, 2023 for details). In both areas, extensive overburden limits the number and extent of pegmatite exposures, however ground geophysical surveys indicate magnetic correlations with pegmatite outcrops extend beneath overburden along the interpreted strike of these bodies. At SD2, in addition to the main, previously discovered, 500m long spodumene pegmatite, new mapping has identified at least three additional subparallel pegmatites in the area, including one sub-cropping exposure, over 100m long, hosting visually identified spodumene mineralization.

On the MacKay property, the MK3 spodumene pegmatite was discovered approximately 4.5 km from the MK1 pegmatite from which 10 of 12 rock samples collected to date have returned in excess of 1.1% Li 2 O, including a high assay of 3.7% Li 2 O (please see North Arrow news releases dated September 20, 2023 and August 14, 2023 for details). MK3 is a prominent 15 to 20m wide, white pegmatite exposure traced near continuously along strike for approximately 130m . Visually identified 2-30cm long spodumene crystals are present throughout the exposure, and the pegmatite remains open in one direction where it extends beneath extensive overburden.

Mr. Armstrong continued, "In a short period of time, and with limited field work, North Arrow has discovered four significant spodumene pegmatites within a newly recognized pegmatite field in the Northwest Territories . These discoveries are located in a similar geological setting to the better-known Yellowknife Pegmatite Province, and North Arrow's work to date demonstrates they have potential for similar size and scale to the pegmatites of the Yellowknife area.  The LDG and MacKay spodumene pegmatites lie within several kilometres of the Tibbitt-Contwoyto winter road connecting Yellowknife with the NWT's diamond mines located just north of the properties. Exploration drilling in 2024 will benefit from use of this winter road, as well as North Arrow's fully permitted exploration camp which has been updated in support of this work."

North Arrow is a Canadian based exploration company focused on the identification and evaluation of lithium and other exploration opportunities in Canada . North Arrow's management, board of directors and advisors have significant successful experience in the global exploration and mining industry. North Arrow is evaluating spodumene pegmatites at its 100% owned LDG, MacKay, and DeStaffany Lithium Projects (NWT) and is also exploring for lithium in Nunavut at the Bathurst Inlet pegmatite field and continues work to identify additional lithium exploration opportunities in northern Canada . North Arrow also owns interests in the Naujaat (NU), Pikoo (SK), and Loki (NWT) Diamond Projects and maintains a 100% interest in the Hope Bay Oro Gold Project, located approximately 3 km north of Agnico Eagle's Doris Gold Mine , Nunavut . North Arrow's exploration programs are conducted under the direction of Kenneth Armstrong , P.Geo. (NWT/NU, ON), President and CEO of North Arrow and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101.  Mr. Armstrong has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this press release.

Brunswick Launches Maiden Drilling Campaign at Elrond

Brunswick Launches Maiden Drilling Campaign at Elrond

Brunswick Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: BRW, OTCQB: BRWXF; " BRW " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce that it has begun construction of a winter road for a drilling campaign at the Elrond project, located in Eeyou Istchee-James Bay Region of Quebec. This maiden drilling campaign will begin in March and will test the Arwen spodumene-bearing pegmatite that was discovered during prospecting last September by the BRW team. The Arwen showing and the Elrond property have never been drilled.

The Arwen pegmatite is exposed over a surface area measuring approximately 250 meters by 100 meters, dipping shallowly to the north. The outcrop is well mineralized and three representative grab samples returned values between 1 and 3% Li 2 O. The pegmatite remains open in all directions (see press release dated October 3 rd , 2023). Previous to drilling activities, a high-resolution airborne magnetic survey was flown in the fall of 2023 and suggests that the Arwen showing is emplaced in a favorable structural corridor that is 4km long and 500m wide. The target area is proximal to infrastructure, located approximately 12km from the Billy-Diamond Highway and drilling activities will be ground supported via a winter road.

QX Resources Ltd  Encouraging Iron Ore Samples up to 58% Fe in Pilbara

QX Resources Ltd Encouraging Iron Ore Samples up to 58% Fe in Pilbara

Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - QX Resources Limited (ASX:QXR) is pleased to announce that a detailed sampling program has been planned for the Company's Western Shaw iron ore project, in the Pilbara iron ore province of Western Australia.

At Western Shaw, previous reconnaissance rock chip samples have returned up to 58.5% Fe from outcrop, which extends over a 4km distance.

A Banded Iron Formation (BIF) with chert horizons was sampled over 4.4km but extends over 8km within the Western Shaw leases (E45/6107, E45/4960), with southern extensions held by the FMG group and Rio Tinto (E45/5589, E45/6326).

QXR has undertaken a comprehensive review of prior exploration over Western Shaw with the iron ore potential only having been recently assessed as the area had been targeted for pegmatites by QXR. Potential exists for enriched surface iron ore over BIF sequences. The Pilbara has been an exploration target for enriched iron ore as DSO (Direct Shipping Ore). A new sampling program of 250m spaced rockchip traverses over the outcropping BIF sequence is planned over the full 8km outcrops in the coming quarter, followed by costeans to better identify drilling targets.

Previous work had been conducted by Atlas Iron over 15 years ago with rockchip results up to 62.3%Fe+ (Table 2*). However recent sampling indicates further untested potential to the south. Atlas had previously intersected up to 57.4% Fe in RC drilling (0-2m, WSRC016) + (Table 2*) within strongly oxidized goethitic ironstone but Atlas' planned reconnaissance drill program was never completed, according to their WA mines dept reports. QXR's rock chip samples display 3km of untested strike length to the south of previous drilling and rockchip sampling.

QXR Managing Director, Stephen Promnitz, said: "Iron ore rockchip sample results with grades above 57% Fe are rare to locate this past decade and may lead to DSO potential if results continue to show promise. It's an exciting opportunity within our leases surrounded by majors in the sector. New work could show the potential for something significant, so we are excited to get this detailed sampling program underway."
