Ongoing drill program at Palos Verdes halfway completed

Prismo Metals Inc. (CSE: PRIZ) (OTCQB: PMOMF) (the "Company" or "Prismo") is pleased to provide an update on the current drill program at its Palos Verdes project, located in the historic Panuco-Copala district of the state of Sinaloa, Mexico. The program has drilled a total of 1,062 meters to date out of a planned minimum of 2,000 metres. The Company expects to complete the minimum target of 2,000 metres in early November. The Palos Verdes property is contiguous to the Panuco silver-gold project of Vizsla Silver Corp.

The drilling program is designed to test the Palos Verdes vein and a structural intersection with a second vein at depths where it is believed that potential for a large ore shoot is present, similar to the drilling accomplished by Vizsla Silver Corp. on their adjacent land package. Three holes have been completed and one hole is in progress.

Technical Summary

  • 1,062 meters drilled to date; currently drilling hole PV-22-14.
  • By analyzing Vizsla Silver's recent drill data, a new protocol has been adopted for sampling in the same fashion as Vizsla Silver over the wide structural zones, including in wallrocks with quartz veinlets.
  • In addition to samples already sent to the lab, Prismo will sample about 30 meters of additional core from holes PV-22-12 and PV-22-13 as well as about 30-50 meters from the 2018 and 2020 drilling campaigns. The results of all these assays are to be expected to be announced at the same time, once analyzed, in late October.

The first drill hole of the season, PV-22-11, intersected a large fracture zone that is believed to correspond to the shear zone recognized during surface mapping carried out previously. The fracture zone offsets the Palos Verdes structure and the first hole cut mineralized quartz veinlets in the footwall of the main structure. As a result, the orientation of the shear zone is now better defined and provides important information for future drilling of the vein system to the east of the fault zone.

The second and third holes of the current program, PV-22-12 and PV-22-13, each cut a wide structural zone with several discrete multistage quartz veins separated by altered andesite wallrock with variable quartz veinlets and local zones of sheared rock with relatively sulfide-rich stages of mineralization. The structural zone in hole PV-22-12 measured 29 meters along the core, and that in hole PV-22-13 measured 36 meters downhole.

"In our past drilling campaigns and with holes PV-22-12 and PV-22-13, the sample protocol was focussed on the wider discrete quartz veins and did not include assays of samples from the wallrock with veinlets. The initial sampling of the current drilling campaign included about 13 meters in hole PV-22-12 and 18 meters in hole PV-22-13 within the wider structural zones," said Prismo President and CEO Craig Gibson.

He added: "After careful analysis of Vizsla Silver Corp.'s latest results from the Copala vein announced in their news release of September 12, 2022, showing significant mineralization over wide structural zones, including in wallrocks with quartz veinlets, we have decided to modify our protocol to sample the entire intercept of the structural zone in the same fashion as Vizsla Silver Corp. Accordingly, Prismo is sending to lab, in addition to samples already sent, about 30 meters of additional core from holes PV-22-12 and PV-22-13 as well as about 30-50 meters from the 2018 and 2020 drilling campaigns. These will be sent to the lab for analysis along with samples from the fourth hole, when completed. We expect to release the results of all these assays at the same time, once analyzed, in late October."

The true width of the reported intercepts is believed to be about 60% of the reported downhole lengths, and are about 50 to 75 meters below previous shallow drilling that had several high grade intercepts, with the best being 2,336 g/t Ag and 8.42 g.t Au over a true width estimated at 0.8 meters within a larger mineralized interval with 1,098 g/t Ag and 3.75 g/t Au over a true width of 2.3 meters (see Prismo's news releases dated September 30 and December 20, 2020)

Dr. Craig Gibson, PhD., CPG., a Qualified Person as defined by NI-43-01 regulations and President, CEO and a director of the Company, has reviewed and approved the technical disclosures in this news release.

About Palos Verdes

The Palos Verdes project is located in the historic Pánuco-Copala silver-gold district in southern Sinaloa, Mexico, approximately 65 kilometers NE of Mazatlán, Sinaloa, in the Municipality of Concordia. The Palos Verdes concession (claim) covers 700 meters of strike length of the Palos Verdes vein, a member of the north-easterly trending vein family located in the eastern part of the district outside of the area of modern exploration. Shallow drilling (see table of intercepts at www.prismometals.com). This mineralization is open in all directions and the currently planned drilling program is designed to follow it along strike and to depth.

The Palos Verdes property is contiguous to the Panuco silver-gold project of Vizsla Silver Corp. The current drill program is designed to test the Palos Verdes vein and a structural intersection with a second vein at depths where it is believed that potential for a large ore shoot is present, similar to the drilling accomplished by Vizsla Silver on their adjacent land package.

Maxwell Gold Property Geophysical Survey Commences and JMW Property Diamond Drilling to Begin, Chapais-Chibougamau Area, Quebec

Maxwell Gold Property Geophysical Survey Commences and JMW Property Diamond Drilling to Begin, Chapais-Chibougamau Area, Quebec

Newfoundland Discovery Corp. (CSE: NEWD) (OTC PINK: NEWDF) (FSE: M4K) ("Newfoundland Discovery" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that a 1,000-line kilometre airborne Triaxial Gradient Magnetometer ("MAG") survey has commenced on the Maxwell gold property ("Maxwell") in the Chapais-Chibougamau area of Quebec (see location map below). The MAG survey will cover the entire 9,400-hectare property.

Maxwell is a project that the Company entered into an option agreement with Gitennes Exploration Inc. (TSXV: GIT) to acquire up to an 85% interest in on November 3rd, 2022. The project is situated between two of Iamgold Corporation's properties with the Monster Lake high grade gold property six km to the east (see Figure 1). Maxwell has several occurrences of gold in both the fine and heavy fraction of glacial tills and the gold in tills is associated with mapped structures. The structures are northeast trending, similar to Iamgold's Nelligan property. Maxwell has seen very little exploration and several EM geophysical anomalies remain untested.

Alianza partner Allied Copper intersects 4.26% Copper over 1.06 metres at West Graben Fault Target, Klondike Property, Colorado

(TheNewswire)

Alianza Minerals Ltd

Vancouver, BC, TheNewswire , November 30, 2022 - Alianza Minerals Ltd. ("Alianza") (TSXV:ANZ ) , ( OTC:TARSF) and Cloudbreak Discovery PLC ("Cloudbreak") (LSE: CDL) (the " Alliance ") are pleased to announce results of the first modern drill test of the Klondike property, funded by partner Allied Copper Corp. ("Allied") (TSX-V: CPR) , under the terms of its earn-in agreement with the Alliance. Five holes were completed testing the Northeast Fault (2 holes), West Graben Fault (2 holes) and East Graben Fault (1 hole) targets. Hole KDB22-05 tested a strand of the West Graben Fault yielding long intersections of alteration and 42 metres of anomalous copper mineralization in a halo surrounding a fault intersection of 4.26% copper over 1.06 metres. Management interprets this result to indicate strong potential for copper mineralization on the main strand of the West Graben Fault. The Klondike Property consists of 76 unpatented mining claims, a State of Colorado Exploration Permit and an exclusive right to a State lease.
