  • 5.1 km zone of anomalous gold values found in soil and talus fine samples at Gracie
  • 43 soil samples from a 1,600 x 800 m central area average 0.49 g/t Au, with 8 samples >1 g/t Au
  • Zone underlain and adjacent to probable unexposed intrusion only 4 km from Snowline's 2021 "Valley" discovery
  • Intact carapace at top of intrusion presents high priority drill target for 2022.

Snowline Gold Corp. (CSE:SGD)(OTCQB:SNWGF) (the "Company" or "Snowline") is pleased to provide an update on generative exploration results from its Rogue project in the Yukon Territory, Canada. Geochemical assay results received from late season 2021 contour soil and talus fine sampling reveal a large zone of anomalous gold values to 1.71 gt Au on top of and around a probable, near-surface, gold-bearing intrusion at the Company's Gracie target

Figure 1 - Soil, talus fine and rock geochemical results from Snowline's Rogue project on top of ZTEM electromagnetic survey results. Surface sampling performed late in the 2021 field season demonstrates the scale of gold anomalism associated with a probable buried intrusion, with values of up to 1.71 g/t Au from talus fines at Gracie. Dashed blue ovals indicate zones of anomalous results. Samples from the central zone have an average of 0.49 g/t. North and south zones of anomalous gold values are along stratigraphic and structural trend with the unexposed intrusion. The Valley intrusion and suspected Gracie intrusion are expressed in in the ZTEM image as cooler colours representing relative electrical resistors, consistent with other known intrusions in the survey area.

"These results add to strong evidence that Gracie could host a large and fertile reduced-intrusion related gold system," said Scott Berdahl, CEO and director of Snowline. "What excites us about this-beyond the potential to duplicate our Valley discovery-is that the intrusion at Gracie hasn't been exposed by erosion. These gold systems can be most prospective at the very top of an intrusion, where initial cooling of the edges creates a brittle carapace that fractures to accommodate later gold bearing fluids. An intact carapace at Gracie thus makes for a compelling exploration target adjacent and complementary to the Company's 2021 Valley and Ridge discoveries."

Figure 2 - Simplified schematic cut-away of Valley and Gracie subsurface geology. The large Au-Bi-Te geochemical anomaly and accompanying ZTEM geophysical patterns indicate the presence of a Cretaceous aged felsic intrusion (pink) with a related gold mineralizing system in the brittle carapace at the top of the intrusion (red). Fracture arrays that preferentially develop in the carapace are receptive hosts for gold-bearing fluids that form sheeted quartz vein arrays (gold lines). An intact mineralized carapace thus makes for an attractive exploration target.

Anomalous gold in soil samples up to 1.71 g/t Au were returned from 5.1 kilometers along a north-south trending ridge. All 43 samples within a central area roughly 1,600 m long by 800 m wide area averaged 0.49 g/t Au, with 8 results >1 g/t Au (Figure 3). Gold values in this core area have elevated bismuth (up to 287 ppm) and tellurium (up to 7 ppm) - a geochemical signature that is the same as Snowline's Valley zone and is similar to other reduced-intrusion related gold systems.

Limited historical surface work at Gracie yielded mineralized rock samples in outcrop and float, with values of up to 57.0 g/t Au (quartz sulphide vein float). Prospecting by Snowline personnel in 2021 returned float grab samples of up to 6.9 g/t Au. Regional airborne z-tipper axis aeromagnetic (ZTEM) data from 2008 over the Gracie target area are resistive and indicate a felsic intrusion with hornfels country rock exposed on the surface and surrounding the intrusion (Figure 1). These geophysical results are consistent with initial observations of the Gracie target area and will be further verified by the Company.

Figure 3 - Soil and rock assay results from the core of the Gracie zone. Soil samples from within a 1,600 by 800 m area above the site of a suspected buried intrusion returned highly anomalous gold, bismuth and tellurium values, indicating an affinity to an intrusive source. The precise location and the depth to the top of the suspected causative intrusion have yet to be established.

Given the steep, rocky terrain and poor soil development (Figure 4), many soil samples from the Gracie area are classified as talus fines. Talus fines samples are produced by mechanical weathering of rocks are less modified by chemical weathering than typical soils. Some elements in talus fine samples may have stronger geochemical responses than soils from over a bedrock geochemical anomaly. Talus fine samples are also more susceptible to a sampling bias wherein more easily weathered mineralized zones, such as sulphide-rich veins, can contribute a larger portion of the talus fine sediment load than the more durable and relatively barren country rock, resulting in a concentration of associated elements like gold.

Figure 4 - Photograph of a gossanous ridge in the Gracie Zone, produced by oxidation of high-temperature hydrothermal alteration. Such alteration is presumably caused by a fertile sibling intrusion to the Valley stock present beneath Gracie. "Soil" samples collected from such areas are denotes as talus fines, as there is generally little to no development of a typical soil profile.


The proximity of Gracie to Snowline's Valley zone, some 4 kilometers to the west, makes for convenient and cost-effective exploration in light of the Company's planned 3,000 m drill program at Valley in 2022. Expansion of the 2021 Valley zone aeromagnetic survey is planned for coverage of the Gracie zone and the broader claim block using a helicopter-borne geophysics system. Additional surface sampling and geological mapping at Gracie will provide further context for magnetic and geochemical results to assist potential drill targeting.


Snowline's 100%-owned Rogue property covers over 11,000 hectares in three main claim blocks. Each claim block covers one or more Cretaceous-aged intrusions of the Mayo plutonic suite - these are highly prospective for bulk-tonnage, reduced intrusion related gold systems (RIRGS). A first-pass 800 m drill program completed in September 2021 targeted bulk tonnage sheeted quartz vein arrays and resulted in the drill discovery of the Valley zone with intersections of up to 1.25 g/t Au over 168.7 m (Table 1). Late-season contour soil sampling near the Valley zone revealed a second anomalous region associated with sheeted vein arrays along the northeastern edge of the Valley stock known as the Ridge Zone (See Snowline's March 10, 2022 Press Release).

Snowline Gold Provides Exploration Update on Its Valley Drill Program, Rogue Project, Yukon

  • Sheeted quartz veins with trace amounts of visible gold present in hole V-22-005
  • Location of hole expands known width of Valley mineralized corridor by 150 metres
  • Drilling ongoing, with assay results and full drill core evaluation pending.

Snowline Gold Corp. (CSE:SGD)(OTCQB:SNWGF) (the "Company" or "Snowline") is pleased to report that it has intersected mineralization from bedrock surface in its first hole of 2022, drilled at the Rogue project's Valley Zone in Canada's Yukon Territory. V-22-005 encountered thin (1-60 mm) sheeted quartz veins through to at least its present depth of 233 metres (as of Sunday, June 12, 2022; drilling ongoing at time of writing). Seven separate veins hosting trace visible gold were observed between 39 and 220 metres downhole during initial logging. The collar location is a 154-metre step-back from 2021 hole V-21-003 which also encountered a broad zone of mineralization from the bedrock surface

Snowline Gold Corp., Tuesday, June 7, 2022, Press release picture
Figure 1 - Location of V-22-005, Snowline's first drill hole of the 2022 exploration season, currently underway at Valley. The hole is a 150m step back from V-21-003, which intersected 1.25 g/t Au over 168.7 m from surface. The step back will provide a better measure of the width of the mineralization and constrain the broader orientation of the zone, in addition to testing the mineralization encountered in V-21-003 at depth.

"Following an exceptional first season with two drill discoveries on our adjacent Rogue and Einarson projects, we are very excited to return to the field," said Scott Berdahl, CEO and Director of Snowline. "Our team has already done a tremendous job setting up for an early season start amidst our new camp build and a record-breaking spring snowpack. Snowline's 2022 drill program gives our shareholders much to look forward to as we simultaneously build on recent successes and position ourselves to make additional discoveries. Our results will shed new light on our large and relatively unexplored land package, which we believe has the potential to become a new North American gold district."

Have Challenging Economic Times Made Mining Finance More Difficult?

After 2020’s broad disruptions put a damper on mining exploration, project financing was able to recoup 2020’s losses last year with spending growing 35 percent year-over-year.

Rising commodity prices also added tailwinds to the sector as an additional 200 companies announced plans to get shovels into the ground.

Unfortunately, 2021’s momentum has somewhat waned this year as runaway energy prices and record high inflation make junior financing more challenging.
