Puma Exploration Inc. (TSXV: PUMA) (the "Company" or "Puma") is pleased to report that it has discovered a series of thick quartz veins that contain visible gold ("VG") between the Chubby and Moose Gold zones of its Williams Brook Gold property in New Brunswick, Atlantic-Canada.

The discoveries were made during the Company's ongoing stripping program that targets the favourable rhyolite/sediment contact along the O'Neil Gold Trend (OGT) and is designed to confirm continuous gold mineralization at surface over the trend's 700-meters strike length (Figure 1).

Rejean Gosselin, geologist and Chairman of the Board, noted: " We are excited about this discovery at the Chubby-Moose gold area (Figure 2). The mineralization of these near-surface, highly altered and large thick quartz veins is similar to what we observed at O'Neil, Lynx, and Pepitos.

This discovery further supports the potential for a large gold deposit that could extend over a strike length of 700 meters at Williams Brook. Building on the success of our inaugural drilling program in other areas of the property, we will test this new target in early 2022 to show that the gold mineralization observed here at surface also extends at depth."

RECENT EXPLORATION HIGHLIGHTS

  • Discovery of a pervasive network of altered and thick quartz veins;

  • Discovery of three (3) additional areas with visible gold, over 25 meters, in quartz vein;

  • Discovery of several N340 structures in the rhyolite that could represent important conduits to the formation of the quartz veins and associated high-grade gold mineralization;

  • The entire OGT belt is heavily oxidized and mineralized;

  • Over 750 samples sent for assays (results pending);

  • Compilation of a robust geological model in collaboration with Terrane Geosciences and Mira Geoscience underway;

  • Launch of a 10,000-meters drilling campaign in January 2022.

ONGOING EXPLORATION PROGRAM
Puma's ongoing surface exploration and stripping program, launched in June 2021, is focused on testing and extending the O'Neil Gold Trend at its Williams Brook property. Building on the Company's success, the aggressive mechanized stripping program continues to uncover prospective areas for high-grade gold mineralization along the OGT. The entire 300-meters strike length contact between the Lynx Zone up to the Moose Zone was stripped at a width varying between 25 to 100 meters (Figure 3). The pervasive altered rock package that hosts networks of quartz veins with high-grade gold mineralization seen at O'Neil, Lynx, and Pepitos is also present here. This significant discovery shows that gold mineralization extends over 700 meters along strike from the O'Neil area all the way to the Lynx area and that a large gold deposit is possible at Williams Brook.

With surface gold mineralization extending at depth, as shown by Puma's inaugural drilling program, the technical team is aggressively sampling the uncovered quartz veins to identify potential high-grade gold targets and improve the outcomes of its upcoming drilling program (Figure 4). Over 750 samples have been collected to date, with assays pending. Mapping and analysis of structural data are also underway to further optimize the upcoming drilling program. Terrane Geosciences mapped the favourable rhyolite/sediment contact in the area, and the structural features and the quartz veins orientation are currently being analyzed to improve targeting. As long as field conditions allow, Puma will continue to advance its surface stripping and sampling work aggressively.

Overview

As mineral exploration companies across Canada seek new mining locations, one location stands out every year as a top contender. New Brunswick is a province rich in natural resources with mining-friendly policies, substantial infrastructure, a comprehensive regulatory regime and a competitive tax regime. Each year, New Brunswick ranks among the top places in the world for mineral exploration in the Fraser Institute’s Annual Survey of Mining Companies.

New Brunswick is home to the Bathurst Mining Camp (BMC) which is one of the most prolific mining camps for base metals in Canada. The BMC hosts 46 mineral deposits of which 25 comprise reserves of 1 million tonnes or more. The BMC also hosted the Brunswick #12 mine, one of the largest underground zinc mines in the world. As a result, companies with mineral projects in New Brunswick’s Bathurst Mining Camp will likely be of particular interest to investors seeking upside potential.

Scottie Resources Intercepts 11.8 g/t Gold Over 6.57 Metres and 37.2 g/t Gold Over 3.71 Metres at Scottie Gold Mine Project and Provides Corporate Update

Scottie Resources Intercepts 11.8 g/t Gold Over 6.57 Metres and 37.2 g/t Gold Over 3.71 Metres at Scottie Gold Mine Project and Provides Corporate Update

Scottie Resources Corp. (" Scottie " or the " Company ") (TSXV: SCOT), (OTCQB:SCTSF), (FSE:SR8) is pleased to report drill assays from its Scottie Gold Mine (SGM) target. Due to the parallel nature of the targeted veins, individual holes were designed to test multiple discreet targets. Highlight intercepts from the reported holes include: 11.8 gt gold over 6.57 metres, 20.6 gt gold over 2.22 metres, and 37.2 gt gold over 3.71 metres in the P, O, and M-Zones respectively. The past-producing high-grade Scottie Gold Mine is located on the Granduc Road, 35 kilometres north of the town of Stewart, BC, and is one of four primary targets that were tested during the 14,500 m program in 2021, which also includes the rapidly advancing Blueberry Zone ( November 9, 2021 ) .

"These results from Scottie Gold Mine illustrate the potential for the expansion of the historic resource at Scottie through both the extension of known ore shoots, as well as revealing the potential of previously untested targets – notably the P-zone which prior to Scottie's involvement had seen no drilling, and now we are hitting intercepts comparable to the mined stopes of the past producing mine." comments President and CEO, Brad Rourke. "The Scottie Gold Mine target continues to deliver as a cornerstone to our primary goal of developing a road accessible, 1M+ ounce high-grade gold resource at our Scottie Gold Mine Project."

Rover Metals Announces Infill and Delineation of the New Andrew Zone at Cabin Gold, NT, Canada

Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FRA:4XO) (" Rover " or the " Company ") is pleased to report on the Phase 2 Exploration Program at its 100% owned Cabin Gold Project, NT, Canada . The focus of the Phase 2 Exploration Program was to discover and delineate new gold mineralized zones along the Bugow Iron Formation, the controlling structure for gold at the Cabin Gold Project. The Company is pleased to announce that its exploration program has been able to confirm and expand the historic gold grades at the Andrew South, Andrew Middle, and Andrew North Targets. The expansion includes an increase to the historical average gold grades reported across all of these historic targets. Rover has grouped the north, middle and south bounds of Andrew into a new single Andrew Zone, which extends 800 meters from south to north at surface. The map of the Bugow Iron Formation on the Company's website has been updated to show the location of the new Andrew Zone. The south end of the Andrew Zone is situated roughly 500 meters northeast of the Beaver Zone. The Beaver Zone was featured in the Company's December 7, 2021 release. The Company has now reported on the discovery of three medium-to-high grade mineralized gold zones at Cabin: the Arrow, Beaver, and Andrew Zones, all open at depth, and along strike.
