Shallow High-Grade Gold Discovery in the Extension of the Sadowski Zone: 52.12 g/t Gold over 2.29 metres

Shallow High-Grade Gold Discovery in the Extension of the Sadowski Zone: 52.12 g/t Gold over 2.29 metres

Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSXV: RPX, OTCQB: RDEXF) ("Red Pine" or the "Company") is pleased to report on new results from its 2022 Phase 1 exploration program. The exploration results continue to support the expansion of current resources and the potential for additional centres of mineralization within the Wawa Gold Project.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • High-grade assay results received from the 2022 drilling in the up-dip extension of the Sadowski zone:
    • 52.12 g/t gold over 2.29 metres in SD-21-350 including 162.52 g/t gold over 0.30 metres and 145.20 g/t gold over 0.41 metres.
    • 492 g/t silver over 0.90 metres in SD-21-309
  • Additional high-grade intersection in the down plunge extension of the Surluga deposit in the North, with the primary mineralization zone remaining open at depth and along strike.
    • 8.44 g/t gold over 5.71 metres
  • Confirmation of Company's exploration strategy and targeting approach: surface mapping and orientated core measurements to refine targets, drilling to confirm gold mineralization.
  • Strong endorsement of Phase 1 Exploration Plan and potential expansion later in 2022.
  • Assay results from the current drill program are coming back on a more regular basis.

Quentin Yarie, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Red Pine stated "The discovery of higher-grade gold intersections down plunge of the Surluga resource and the Sadowski Zone as well as the extension of the Jubilee shear > 2kms south of the Parkhill fault are causing a re-evaluation of the identified exploration targets noted a press release on March 2, 2018. At that time, we identified contained ounces in the combined exploration targets ranging from 0.725 M oz to 3 M oz between 4-10 g/t. With our current intersections and higher-grade discoveries in 2021 to now, it appears we were conservative on our grade range."

  • The reader is cautioned that the potential tonnages and grades of the exploration targets are conceptual in nature, that there has been insufficient exploration to increase the current mineral resources, and that it is uncertain if further exploration will result in any of the exploration targets being delineated as a mineral resource. The exploration targets are part of a coherent system – supporting the possibility that the Wawa Gold project contains a larger, higher-grade gold system;

Discussion

Surluga south area – Discovery of high-grade gold in the Sadowski Vein Network and high-grade silver in the Jubilee Shear Zone

In the Surluga South area, hole SD-22-350 intersected a near-surface and high-grade quartz vein that is part of the Sadowski Vein Network. The intersection in SD-22-350 is located 81 metres up-dip from the intersection of 29.29 g/t gold over 2.02 metres in SD-21-297A in the Sadowski Vein Network. The Sadowski Vein Network has now been traced over a strike length of 100 metres and to a vertical depth of 85 metres. It remains open to the North and at depth.

In SD-21-309 in a late fault sub-parallel to the Jubilee Shear Zone foliation, Red Pine identified high-grade silver mineralization. The continuity and size of that zone of silver mineralization remains to be determined.

Surluga North – Extension of gold mineralization

Table 2 – Intersection in the Jubilee Shear Zone (JSZ) in the Surluga North area
In the Surluga North hole SD-21-337 intersected significant gold in the Jubilee Shear Zone, 260 metres down-dip of the current resource and 150 metres NNE of the intersection of in SD-21-308 (see news release of January 21, 2022). The intersection in SD-22-337 continues to indicate the potential to expand the resource of the Surluga deposit and the existence of a third high-grade zone in the JSZ parallel to the two high-grade zones that are currently forming the resource of the Surluga deposit.

Update on Exploration drilling – Jubilee Shear Zone south of the Parkhill Fault
Red Pine is continuing to test the under-explored segment of the Jubilee Shear Zone south of the Parkhill fault and has now completed 6 holes (assays pending) covering 275 metres of strike length along the southern segment of the Jubilee. In all the completed drill holes, the Jubilee Shear Zone thickens considerably, reaching an apparent thickness of up to 400 metres.

A zone of strong quartz veining associated with sulfide mineralization, varying in width between 4 and 10 metres, is being consistently observed in the 6 holes completed in the upper part of the Jubilee Shear Zone.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control ("QA/QC") Measures
Drill core samples were transported in security sealed bags for analyses at Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario. Individual samples were labelled, placed in plastic sample bags and sealed. Groups of samples were then placed into durable rice bags and then shipped. The residual coarse reject portions of the samples remain in storage if further work or verification is needed.

Red Pine has implemented a quality-control program to comply with best practices in the sampling and analysis of drill core. As part of its QA/QC program, Red Pine inserts external gold standards (low to high grade) and blanks every 20 samples in addition to random standards, blanks, and duplicates.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Stays Steady as Fed Signals Higher for Longer

The US Federal Reserve was in focus this week as it met from Tuesday (September 19) to Wednesday (September 20). The central bank was widely expected to leave interest rates unchanged, and that's exactly what it did.

In its statement, the Fed reaffirms its goals of achieving maximum employment and bringing inflation down to 2 percent. It also emphasizes that it will continue to assess various factors as it determines its next steps.

"The Committee seeks to achieve maximum employment and inflation at the rate of 2 percent over the longer run. In support of these goals, the Committee decided to maintain the target range for the federal funds rate at 5-1/4 to 5-1/2 percent" — US Federal Reserve

The Fed Left Rates Unchanged — What Happened to the Gold Price?

The US Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged at 5.25 to 5.5 percent at its latest meeting.

The central bank was widely expected to stay the course at this month's gathering, but market watchers believe there's still one more 25 basis point hike left in this cycle — an update to the dot plot, which shows where each Fed official thinks the federal funds rate is headed, shows that the median projection is 5.6 percent by the end of 2023.

Looking forward to 2024, two cuts of a quarter point each are anticipated. That's less than the four decreases insiders were forecasting three months ago, which Andrew Patterson, senior economist at Vanguard, believes is a "telling" change.

Will Rhind: Gold in Good Position Ahead of Fed; Still Positive on Platinum

The US Federal Reserve's latest meeting will wrap up on Wednesday (September 20), and gold investors are watching closely to see whether the central bank hikes interest rates again or leaves them unchanged at 5.25 to 5.5 percent.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares, said he thinks an increase is unlikely.

"I only see the probability of a rate hike happening if clearly there's some data to suggest that inflation's on the up again, or something that provides some catalyst for them to raise interest rates," he said during an interview. "I do think that by and large we're at the top of the cycle, and we are kind of on the way down, albeit not immediately."

Gold Grain Morphology: A Valuable Method of Gold Exploration (Updated 2023)

The high value of gold means that a deposit of very small concentration can be economically mined — a fact that is great news for gold miners, but complicated for gold explorers.

Gold is often found in ores composed of rock with very small particles. When it comes to extraction, ore with grades of gold as little as 0.5 parts per million (ppm) can be economically mined. Because ore grades of 30 ppm are usually needed before gold is visible to the naked eye, gold in most mines is invisible.

Not only can viewing individual grains of gold provide a challenge, but the nature of prospecting means that finding these grains of gold through conventional sampling can prove nearly impossible.

Kestrel Gold - Samples up to 2.051 g/t Au at King Solomon's Dome, Follow-up Drilling Planned

Kestrel Gold Inc. ("Kestrel" or the "Corporation", TSX-V:KGC) is pleased to announce preliminary results from the 2023 prospecting program on it's 100% owned King Solomon Dome property ("KSD"). The property is located in the Yukon portion of the Tintina Gold Belt, 35 minutes by road south of Dawson City, within the famous Klondike placer gold district. Creeks draining KSD have produced significant amounts of placer gold and Kestrel is evaluating the property's potential to host economic bedrock sources for this gold

The target at KSD is an orogenic-style north-south trending quartz vein system located over an approximate 1.0 kilometre east-west by 2.2 kilometre north-south area. The 2023 program focused on the Dominion Creek drainage basin which drains the southern portion of the property. Prospecting of new road cuts and active placer pits in this area identified numerous areas of sheared, quartz veined, pyritic and carbonate altered bedrock or rubblecrop, sampling of which returned values ranging from
