Second Drill Arrives at Barksdale's Sunnyside Project

Second Drill Arrives at Barksdale's Sunnyside Project

Barksdale Resources Corp. (TSXV: BRO) (OTCQX: BRKCF) ("Barksdale" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the arrival of a second drill rig at its Sunnyside copper-lead-zinc-silver exploration project in Arizona. Drilling has commenced at the South Canyon zone, where multiple targets are being tested in the first hole.

Highlights:

  • The second diamond drill arrived at Sunnyside and drilling is underway at the South Canyon zone.
  • Hole SUN-002 is targeting multiple carbonate horizons that have the potential to host CRD and skarn mineralization, including the extensions of the Taylor deposit and Peake prospects.
  • Drilling at the Boundary zone is progressing well and is within 50 meters of the projected volcanics/carbonate contact.

Rick Trotman, President and CEO of Barksdale states, "The addition of the second drill will allow Barksdale to quickly advance the exploration program and prioritize additional targets. The new hole is progressing well and has the potential to hit multiple polymetallic CRD and skarn horizons below approximately 1,100 meters depth, including the extensions of both the Taylor deposit and Peake prospect."

The South Canyon zone is located near the eastern property boundary, roughly 700 meters south of the drill currently testing the Boundary zone (Figure 1). The Company has collared a new HQ-sized diamond drill hole at South Canyon and, based on the geology and potential mineralization encountered, is planning on using this hole as the base for future offsetting wedge holes to the north, west, and northwest. SUN-002 is targeting the projection of two carbonate horizons, including the upper sequence (Concha +/- Scherrer Formations) as well as a lower sequence (Escabrosa Formation). The upper sequence is one of the primary hosts of the Taylor zinc-lead-silver deposit as well as the Boundary copper-zinc-lead-silver target currently being drilled by Barksdale to the north. The lower sequence hosts the Peake copper skarn prospect on the adjacent South32 property.

Drilling at the Boundary zone is also progressing well. The wedge hole SUN-001 is at approximately 1,175 meters depth and is approaching the projected top of the carbonate section (Concha Formation) at approximately. The hole is planned to continue to approximately 1,600 meters depth, which could be adjusted based on drilling conditions and/or encountered geology. The Company will continue to provide additional updates as the drill program progresses.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION: This news release includes "forward-looking information" under applicable Canadian securities legislation including, but not limited to, the Company's goals for 2023; geological interpretations; the proposed nature, size, timing, targets and impact of the Company's planned drilling program on the Sunnyside project, anticipated drill and exploration results; the estimation of mineral resources; magnitude or quality of mineral deposits; anticipated advancement of mineral properties or programs; future operations; mine plans; future exploration prospects; the completion and timing of technical reports; future growth potential of Barksdale Resources and future development plans for the Sunnyside copper-lead-zinc-silver project; the ability of the Company to obtain the requisite staffing, bonding and financing therefor; and the potential impact of seasonal drilling restrictions on the ability of the Company to effectively carry out such program. Such forward-looking information reflects management's current beliefs and are based on a number of estimates and assumptions made by and information currently available to the Company that, while considered reasonable, are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors which may cause the actual results and future events to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. Historic drill results from the Sunnyside property are historic in nature and pre-date NI 43-101 standards. They are for informational purposes only and should not be relied on. Readers are cautioned that such forward-looking information are neither promises nor guarantees, and are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties including, but not limited to, general business, economic, competitive, political and social uncertainties, uncertain and volatile equity and capital markets, lack of available capital, actual results of exploration activities, environmental risks, future prices of base metals, operating risks, accidents, labor issues, delays in obtaining governmental approvals and permits, and other risks in the mining industry. The Company's proposed drilling program at Sunnyside is an exploratory search for commercial quantities of ore, the discovery of which cannot be assured. The geological similarity and close proximity of South 32's Hermosa project (Taylor, Clark and Peake deposits) to Sunnyside is not necessary indicative of the mineralization at Sunnyside. There are currently no NI 43-101 resources or reserves on the Sunnyside property. There is also uncertainty about the continued spread and severity of COVID-19, the ongoing war in Ukraine and rising inflation and interest rates and the impact they will have on the Company's operations, supply chains, ability to access mining projects or procure equipment, supplies, contractors and other personnel on a timely basis or at all and economic activity in general.

Barksdale Provides Sunnyside Drilling Update

Barksdale Provides Sunnyside Drilling Update

Barksdale Resources Corp. (TSXV: BRO) (OTCQX: BRKCF) ("Barksdale" or the "Company") is providing an update on the ongoing drilling program at its Sunnyside copper-lead-zinc-silver exploration project in Arizona. This weekend the SUN-001 hole encountered a 20-meter void (karst) as it transitioned from volcanics into the targeted carbonate horizon. The decision was taken to start a new hole from surface.

Rick Trotman, President and CEO of Barksdale, states, "Our geologic and drilling teams have decades of experience in similar drilling conditions, including next door at the Hermosa project. After hitting the void and assessing our options, we made the decision to start a new hole from surface, which will allow us to push HQ rods (89mm or 3.5" diameter) to the target depth and gives us the capability of reducing to NQ (70mm or 2.75" diameter) should we encounter voids going forward (using the HQ rods as an outer casing to cross any voids). This is a small speed bump on our way to drilling a great target. The drill hole and geology were behaving as planned and the bottom of the volcanic sequence was very exciting - strong silicification, actinolite/tremolite veining, and disseminated sulfides including pyrite, galena and sphalerite. Drilling rates are the fastest near surface so we'll be back at that depth in a few weeks."
