ValOre Reports Initial Trench Results at Galante East Target, Pedra Branca, including 53 m grading 0.59 g/t 2PGE+Au, 31 m grading 0.83 g/t 2PGE+Au and 4 m grading 3.86 g/t 2PGE+Au

ValOre Metals Corp. ("ValOre"; TSX ‐ V: VO; OTC: KVLQF; Frankfurt: KEQ0, "the Company") today announced initial trench assay results from the Galante East target ("Galante East") at ValOre's 100%-owned Pedra Branca Platinum Group Elements ("PGE", "2PGE+Au") Project ("Pedra Branca") in northeastern Brazil.

"ValOre's exploration team continues to successfully utilize Trado ® auger drilling and trenching to identify near surface palladium-platinum mineralization at multiple targets property wide," stated ValOre's VP of Exploration, Colin Smith. "The trench results at Galante East confirm the presence of in-situ PGE mineralization, demonstrate potential continuity of target chromite-bearing ultramafic rocks over 2.5 km of trend, and warrant follow-up testing in future drill programs."

Galante East Trenching Highlights:

Assays have been received for 6 of 7 trenches, with all 6 trenches returning PGE mineralization, including:

  • 53 metres ("m") grading 0.59 grams per tonne palladium + platinum + gold ("g/t 2PGE+Au"), including 6 m grading 1.07 g/t 2PGE+Au and 3 m grading 1.44 g/t 2PGE+Au in trench TR22GE01;
  • 31 m grading 0.83 g/t 2PGE+Au, including 16 m grading 1.39 g/t 2PGE+Au and 4 m grading 3.86 g/t 2PGE+Au in trench TR22GE02;
  • 19 m grading 0.54 g/t 2PGE+Au including 2 m grading 1.40 g/t 2PGE+Au in TR22GE05.

Assays are pending for the southernmost trench, TR22GE07, which intercepted 90 m of ultramafic and ultramafic-derived rocks ("UM" and "UM-derived").

Galante East 2022 Exploration Program

The Galante East target is a 3-km-long prospective geological corridor located 7 km south-southwest of Santo Amaro (153,000 oz 2PGE+Au grading 1.11 g/t in 4.3 Mt), and 10 km north-northeast of Curiu (150,000 oz 2PGE+Au grading 2.20 g/t in 2.1 Mt).

Previously reported reconnaissance mapping and prospecting, soil sampling and Trado ® auger programs served to corroborate and refine the historically mapped target UM intrusions and associated PGE mineralization, and supported the completion of a 2022 trenching program to further advance this undrilled 3-km-long trend. ( CLICK HERE for news release dated May 2, 2022 and CLICK HERE for news release dated June 23, 2022). See Figure 1 below for a plan map of Galante East.

Detailed mapping and sampling were performed at seven trenches excavated at the Galante East target (471 metres in total length), with target UM intrusions intercepted in all 7 trenches, and initial PGE assays reported in this release for 6 of 7 trenches (TR22GE01 to TR22GE06). Assays are pending for trench TR22GE07. See Table 1 below for a summary of trench assays received to date, Figure 2 for photographs, and Figures 3a-3b for cross sections of trenches TR22GE01 and TR22GE02.

Baselode Discovers New Zone of Radioactivity Six Kilometres Northeast of ACKIO

Baselode Discovers New Zone of Radioactivity Six Kilometres Northeast of ACKIO

  • Intersected over 30 metres of continuous radioactivity within a massive hydrothermal alteration system
  • New zone discovered on the second drill hole of Hook's regional exploration program, 6 km from ACKIO discovery
  • Demonstrates the fertility of the uranium corridor along Baselode's Hook Project

Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) ("Baselode" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the discovery of a new uranium prospect on the Hook project ("Hook") in the Athabasca Basin area of northern Saskatchewan (Figure 1).

"We're very excited about this new discovery on Hook, on the second hole of our regional exploration program. HK24-010 intersected over 30 metres of continuous radioactivity at approximately 173 metres vertical depth. This new discovery is hosted within a massive alteration corridor similar in scale to what we have observed at our ACKIO zone 6 km to the southwest. We believe the alteration corridor has mobilized uranium from the host rocks and deposited it within a redox front, similar to what we interpret for HK24-010. We intend to follow-up drilling in this area in the coming weeks after completing exploration drilling in a logistically efficient order on other targets with stronger geophysical anomalisms. Hook's regional exploration aim was to discover new zones of uranium mineralization and we're well on our way with this new prospect," commented James Sykes, CEO, President, and Director of Baselode.
