RUA GOLD Provides an Update on the Reefton Drilling Program and the next phase of drill targets

RUA GOLD Corporation (CSE: RUA) (OTC: NZAUF) (WKN: A4010V) ("RUA GOLD" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an exploration update for the Reefton Project on the South Island of New Zealand .

  • Preliminary results confirm the Pactolus system extends south for 550 meters along strike and is well mineralized on surface.
  • The Company is analyzing the results to better understand the plunge and tenor of the ore shoots at this early stage of exploration.
  • The Company has developed multiple new high-grade targets at past producing mines in the Murray Creek area for drill testing in Q2/2024.

Pactolus

  • Recall that Pactolus is a new, surface Greenfields discovery made by RUA GOLD in 2021. Pactolus has returned assays for three of six holes drilled on the system, highlighting:
    • DD_PAC_035 intersecting 2 meters @ 5.13g/t Au
    • DD_PAC_036 intersecting 2 meters @ 3.61g/t Au .
  • These results compliment the surface trenching across outcropping mineralization:
    • 5m @ 12.2 g/t Au (including 1m @ 17.1 g/t Au) and
    • 4m @ 6.9 g/t Au (including 1m @ 16.1 g/t Au).
  • Further work is needed to model the geometry of this zone to warrant additional drilling in this area. As a result, the company expects to refocus on the past-producing areas in Reefton in the near term.

RUA GOLD's forthcoming near-mine drilling program

RUA GOLD plans to commence with 5 targets in the Murray Creek area as the first step in a comprehensive drilling campaign that will test targets in Murray Creek, Crushington, Capleston and Caledonian historic districts. These historic mines collectively produced ~700 koz at 25.2 g/t within a radius of ~20 kilometers. Three of the targets are highlighted:

Murray Creek Target 1: Down-dip extension of mine shoot:

Records show mining stopped by faulting, evidence of continuation at depth. Recent surface rock chips include 56.2, 48.0, 33.3, g/t Au , including some striking visible gold (Figure 3). Trenching of the lode on surface includes 3m @ 31.7 g/t Au incl. 2m @ 47.1 g/t Au .

Murray Creek Target 2: Near mine structural offset:

Targeting potential offset of Inglewood Mine group to the east, rock chips include 35.1, 34.5, and 27.8 g/t Au.

Murray Creek Target 3: Down-dip extension of mine shoot :

Records show mining ceased at 200 meters, yet this was the largest deposit in the Inglewood group.

Robert Eckford , CEO commented: "We are pleased to see consistent mineralization in the drilling from the Pactolus vein and see the potential for exciting new opportunities developing from the historic mine drill targets in the forthcoming near-mine program. Our team will continue drilling RUA GOLD's Reefton properties as our 2,500 meter drill program for 2024 rolls out.  With the exceptional geology of the Reefton project and the highly experienced operating team on the ground, I am excited by the potential in this historic but under-explored high grade orogenic gold district".

Pactolus Summary

The recent 6-hole drill program (DD_PAC_035-040) has tested under the three trenches along the north-south trend of system. Trenching results over four outcrops at Pactolus illustrated in Figure 2 returned the following:

7m @ 13.75 g/t Au (including 1m @ 34.6 g/t Au, 1m @32 g/t Au) *
5m @ 8.1 g/t Au (including 1m @ 14.9 g/t Au)
5m @ 12.2 g/t Au (including 1m @ 17.1 g/t Au)
4m @ 6.9 g/t Au (including 1m @ 16.1 g/t Au)
*(Reported NI 43 101: Technical Report on the Reefton Project, New Zealand )

Four of the six drill holes intersected the targeted mineralized structure. Initial assay results for DD_PAC_35, 36, and 37 returned:

Overview of the Reefton Region

The Reefton Goldfields presents as a classic orogenic style gold deposit, with historic mining recovering high-grade gold in plunging gold bearing quartz reefs. RUA GOLD's systematic exploration has highlighted the potential for the rejuvenation of this district in renewed opportunities in the vicinity of historic high-grade gold deposits.

Historic Mine Evaluation, Proposed Drilling

RUA GOLD has completed a comprehensive evaluation of the historic mines on the Company's tenements in the Reefton Goldfield which produced ~700 koz at 25.2 g/t (see Appendix 2). 3D computer modelling of the geology, structure, and historical mine lodes, was completed as a precursor to drill testing of priority targets. Likely targets include testing down-dip and potential duplicate structures in the vicinity of the historic mines.

RUA GOLD plans to commence with 5 targets in the Murray Creek area as follows.

Murray Creek Target 1: Down-dip extension of mine shoot

Records show Inglewood mine stopped by faulting, evidence of continuation at depth. Recent surface rock chips include 56.2, 48.0, 33.3, 30.3, g/t Au, including some striking visible gold (see insert). Soil samples are up to 113 ppb Au. Trenching of the lode on surface includes:

MC_C03 3m @ 31.7 g/t Au (including 2m @ 47.1g/t Au )
MC_C04 12m @ 6.4 g/t Au (including 1m @ 63.9 g/t Au)

Figure 3: Rock sample with visible gold from Target 1 mapping project. (CNW Group/Rua Gold Inc.)

Murray Creek Target 2: Near mine structural offset

Targeting potential offset of Inglewood Mine group to the east, illustrated in ultra-detail magnetic data, coinciding with Au-As soil anomaly and mapped quartz veins. Rock chips along the jog include 35.1, 34.5, and 27.8 g/t Au from brecciated, highly sulfidic quartz samples. Soil geochemistry (max 172ppb gold) envelopes gold anomalism over the target area.
Trenching in the vicinity of the structural offset included:

MCCRAE05 3m @ 1.7 g/t Au
MC_C06 2m @ 2.9 g/t Au

Murray Creek Target 3: Down-dip extension of mine shoot

Records show mining ceased at 200m yet this was the largest lode in the Inglewood group. Historical records describe the ore directly associated with a dolerite dyke. Accurate mapping of the dyke (UAV magnetics) and 3D structural mapping show significant potential for continuation at depth.

Murray Creek Target 4: 250m north extensions of historic workings

RUA GOLD's mapping has delineated quartz and pug faulting along a syncline hinge that coincides with the north striking Perseverance historical workings. Rock samples returned 11-16.4 g/t Au, soil geochemical samples up to 195ppb Au envelope a north trending zone paralleling the Ajax-Golden Fleece historical mines.

Ajax Target 1: Potential jog/structural complexity

A jog in the magnetic and strong structural complexity show there may be an offset between the Golden Fleece mine group and Venus, very prominent soil gold geochemistry highlights surface expression of this target.

Technical Information

Simon Henderson CP, AUSIMM, a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained herein. Mr. Henderson has verified the data disclosed, including sampling, analytical, and test data underlying the information in the technical disclosure herein.

QAQC Soil Samples

A bulk sample of ~0.5–1 kg was collected in the field and taken back to RGL's office for preparation. Samples were dried in a customized incubator, set at 38°C, for a minimum of two days. Once the samples were fully dried, they were sieved to

A 50–100-g fine-sieved ( Brisbane for Au-TL43 analysis. The analysis consisted of 25-g sample digestion by aqua regia, followed by trace Au analysis by ICP-MS. The detection limit for Au by this method is 1 ppb. Approximately 5% of the samples were analyzed for a full multi-element suite using a 4-acid digest and ICP-MS finish.

ALS Brisbane is independent to RUA GOLD .

QAQC Drilling

The majority of drillholes were sampled in full, typically following 1-m sample intervals unless geological contacts (i.e. dolerite intrusions) dictated otherwise. NQ core was analyzed as whole core; therefore, only requiring cutting along sample intervals. PQ and HQ core were sampled as half core.

Drill core samples were sent to SGS Westport for sample preparation. Core was crushed to 75% passing 2 mm, and 1-kg split of material was pulverized (to 85% passing 75 µm). No split duplicates were collected during the crushing steps. Two scoops were taken from the pulverize bowl: one for laboratory analysis (~150 g) and the other for pXRF analysis (~100 g). The pulp reject is stored in Reefton.

Pulverized drill core samples were analyzed by 50-g fire assay with AAS finish at SGS Waihi (SGS Code FAA505). The detection limit for Au by this method is 0.01 ppm. As part of SGS' internal quality control, SGS conducted repeat analyses, also at a rate of ~5%.

Thirteen 3-g samples were also analyzed by screen fire assay (FAS30K) at SGS Waihi to establish the presence of nuggetty Au. Samples were screened to 75 µm.
