White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (FSE: CGK1) (OTC Pink: TNMLF) ("White Metal" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received core assay results from the first three diamond drill holes from its Phase 3 drilling program at its flagship Tower Mountain Gold Project (the "Project" or "Property"). These first three holes were designed to test the strike extent of the A Zone with all three holes intersecting broad intervals of gold mineralization.

  • TM-21-117: 30.0 m grading 1.30 g/t Au (from 5.0 m).
  • TM-21-118: 49.5 m grading 1.01 g/t Au (from 8.0 m), including 24.0 m grading 1.8 g/t Au.
  • TM-21-119: 21.5 m grading 4.05 g/t/Au (from 6.5 m).

Michael Stares, President and CEO of White Metal, commented, "We would like to wish all our shareholders a happy and prosperous 2022 and look forward to this year's very exciting exploration program. We are delighted to report the first assay results from the A Zone drilling that continue to deliver excellent intercepts of gold mineralization, demonstrating that this zone is open for expansion. Encouraged by the success of the Company's Phase 1 and Phase 2 drilling programs, these early results from Phase 3 drilling indicate that the Tower Mountain Gold Project continues to grow while showing potential to host near-surface low-grade bulk tonnage and high-grade gold mineralization. As we await further assay results from the Bench Zone, D Zone and 110 Zone, the current Phase 3 drilling program is targeting the Ellen Zone and the Star Zone, among others."

The Tower Mountain Gold Project represents an area of exceptional and widespread gold endowment hosted predominantly within a broad package of metavolcanic rocks intruded by a Neo-Archean, high-level, multi-phase, sub-alkali intrusion. This widespread gold is characterized by the 21 gold zones that together define some 5.6 km of strike, with interpreted widths exceeding 300 metres. This press release focuses on the A Zone with future core assay results to be reported from several of the other zones.

A Zone: Summary of Results to Date

Previously reported drill hole TM-21-108 returned 23.8 m grading 3.94 g/t Au (from 3.7 m), including 7.5 m grading 8.77 g/t Au (from 8.0 m) (see news release dated October 21, 2021). Drill holes TM-21-117, TM-21-118 and TM-21-119 (Table 1) were drilled to the west of TM-21-108, a distance of 60 m, 40 m and 22 m, respectively.

Table 1: Summary of Phase 3 Drill Core Assay Results in the A Zone.

Drill Hole From (m) To (m) Interval (m) Au (g/t) Au (ppb) Zone
TM-21-117 5.00 35.00 30.00 1.31 1311 A Zone
incl. 5.00 11.00 6.00 2.68 2678
TM-21-118 5.00 54.50 49.50 1.01 1014
incl. 5.00 32.00 24.00 1.80 1796
TM-21-119 6.50 27.50 21.00 4.05 4050

 

Note: drill hole intervals are not true widths and are being reported as core lengths

Drilling to date has been successful in extending the A Zone a total of 60 m to the west and as a result of the encouraging assays received, the Company will now drill an additional four holes to test the down-dip extent of the A Zone and test an additional 50 m along strike.

Although the A Zone was previously worked by Inco Limited and Noranda Exploration Inc., the Company believes that a true understanding of the control of gold mineralization was not fully understood.

Recent exploration by White Metal, such as the 2021 trenching, returned 20.74 m grading 2.81 g/t Au (see news release dated November 18, 2021). This surface trenching, along with recent drilling as described above, demonstrates the importance of the A Zone.

Phase 3 Drilling Program: Holes Completed To Date

Bench Zone:

Previous drilling in this zone, including Phase 2 drill holes TM-21-105, 106, and 107 were designed to test the strike and down-dip extent. Drill hole TM-21-105 was drilled in the northwest area of the Bench Zone and graded 0.75 g/t Au over 22.5 m, including 10.5 m grading 1.01 g/t Au (from 188.0 m). Hole TM-21-106 was drilled 50 m to the southeast of TM-21-105 and graded 0.5 g/t Au over 150.0 m, including 1.01 g/t Au over 58.5 m, including 15.0 m grading 1.74 g/t Au (from 88.0 m). Drill hole TM-21-107, which was drilled 152.0 m southeast of TM-21-105, intersected 0.84 g/t Au over 49.5 m, including 21.0 m grading 1.29 g/t Au (from 143.5 m).

The Phase 3 drilling program at the Bench Zone is focused on extending gold mineralization to the west and testing the down-dip extension. Drill hole TM-21-120 was drilled 30 m to the west-southwest of TM-21-106 and ended at 287 m (results pending). Hole TM-21-121 was drilled 30 m to the west-southwest of TM-21-107 and ended at 293 m (results pending). All Phase 3 drill holes encountered alteration and sulphide mineralization similar to that observed in previous drill holes.

D Zone:

Phase 3 drilling also tested the D Zone, where previously reported hole TM-21-95 intersected two separate zones of gold mineralization, with 30.0 m grading 0.33 g/t Au (from 21.0 m) and 61.5 m grading 0.51 g/t Au (from 112.5 m).

Phase 3 drill hole TM-21-123, collared 240 m to the west of TM-21-95 and designed to test the down-dip extension of the D Zone, ended at 308 m (results pending). Hole TM-21-122, collared 100 m south of TM-21-123 and designed to test the down-dip extension of the D Zone, ended at 314 m (results pending). The two Phase 3 drill holes encountered various phases of alteration and sulphide mineralization similar to that observed in previous drill holes.

110 Zone:

The 110 Zone, a recent new discovery made as a result of drill-testing a high-priority DasVision 3D-IP chargeability anomaly, is located approximately 250 m southeast of the southern extent of the Bench Zone (see news release dated September 23, 2021). It should be noted that the entire 143 m length of TM-21-110 returned anomalous gold averaging 0.44 g/t Au, with the main part of the zone returning 52.0 m grading 0.75 g/t Au (from 2.5 m), including 7.5 m grading 1.02 g/t Au (from 47.0 m).

Phase 3 drill hole TM-21-125 was drilled 50 m to the west of TM-21-110 and was designed to test the down-dip extension of the TM-21-110 drill hole and to test the volcanic contact at the margins of the intrusive monzonite body. TM-21-125 ended at 152 m (results pending) and encountered various stages of altered and mineralized volcanic rocks with disseminated chalcopyrite and carbonate veins before entering the monzonite body which also showed altered carbonated fractures with veins and pyrite and chalcopyrite mineralization. Hole TM-21-124 was drilled 50 m to the northwest and also encountered the same style of alteration and sulphide mineralization as seen in TM-21-125, ending at 163 m (results pending). Hole TM-22-126 is planned to be drilled a further 50 m to the southeast of TM-21-110 and will completed in the next week.

Core from five drill holes, TM-21-120, 121, 123, 124, and 125 (all in the 110 Zone), has been submitted to Activation Laboratories in Thunder Bay and the Company is awaiting results. For Phase 3 planned drill holes (see news release dated November 9, 2021). A map showing drill holes completed to date can be found by clicking here.

About the Tower Mountain Gold Project

The Tower Mountain Gold Project is located 50 km west of Thunder Bay Ontario and consists of unpatented and patented lands totalling 19.68 square kilometres. The Project has excellent infrastructure with access to the regional power grid and the Trans-Canada Highway, which is less than 4 km away from the centre of the Property and can be easily accessed year-round. Mineralization on the Property is described as intrusive-associated and hosted disseminated gold with broad similarities to gold deposits located within the Abitibi Greenstone Belt of northeastern Ontario such as the Kirkland Lake and Malartic gold camps and the Young-Davidson Mine, which is currently one of Canada's largest underground gold mines, forecast to produce between 190,000 to 205,000 ounces of gold for 2021 (as reported by Alamos Gold). The similarity of the Tower Mountain Gold Project and its related intrusive complex to other intrusive related gold deposits is significant in that these intrusions are deemed to be the source of the gold-bearing hydrothermal fluids. This in turn yields great potential for a significant economic deposit. The widespread nature and intensity of host rock alteration and gold mineralization observed on the Property is attributed to the intrusive complex at Tower Mountain and attests to the exciting potential of the Project.

Mineralization hosted by established operations and other exploration projects is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Company's Tower Mountain Gold Project.

White Metal Cuts 20.74 Metres Grading 2.81 g/t Gold in Trenching Program, Correlating with Drilling Results at Depth, Tower Mountain Gold Project, Ontario

White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (FSE: CGK1) (OTC Pink: TNMLF) ("White Metal" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received assay results from the A Zone trenching program at the Tower Mountain Gold Project (the "Project" or "Property"). The Company mapped and channel sampled the A Zone to gain a better understanding of the controls on high-grade gold mineralization which proved very effective in tracing this zone at surface. The Company is very encouraged with the results of the channel sample assays which correlate well with similar results reported from drill hole TM-21-108 that assayed 3.94 gt Au over 23.8 m (from near surface) (Table 1; see also WHM news release dated October 21, 2021). White Metal has commenced a Phase 3 drilling program with 4,300 metres planned to test the many gold zones on the Property of which approximately 1,000 metres will target the A Zone.

Michael Stares, President and CEO of White Metal, commented, "The A Zone channel sampling program turned out to be very successful and we have now demonstrated that gold mineralization in this area is continuous at surface and correlates well with recent drilling. This program has given us enough structural knowledge to target the A Zone along strike and down-dip. We have so many great gold targets to follow-up on during our Phase 3 drilling program and the A Zone, although a key part of moving the Project forward, is just one of many excellent targets. As we move through the third phase of drilling, I look forward to sharing the results with our shareholders."

Cyprium Metals Ltd Further Significant Copper Intersections from Nifty West Drilling Program

Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Cyprium Metals Limited (ASX:CYM) is pleased to announce further assay results from 28 RC holes (for 7,504m) of the Nifty West drilling program. The drilling programme targeted a lightly drilled area, up-plunge of the former underground mine in the keel area of the Nifty Syncline, below the western end of the Nifty open pit (refer to Figure 1*).

Managing Director Barry Cahill commented:

"We have been very pleased with the drilling results received to date. These assay results continue to confirm the presence of a substantial zone of copper mineralisation which is up-plunge of the former underground mine. We continue to be excited about the receipt of the results of balance of the outstanding assays. It is not often that you have the privilege of getting these widths of mineralisation beneath an existing shallow open pit. The assays will be included in an updated mineral resource estimate that we look forward to releasing during the first half of this year."

Hole locations from the current program are shown in Figure 2* with the significant intersections summarised in Table 2*.

Discussion of results

Further wide intervals of low to medium-grade copper mineralisation were encountered on four section lines (101,560E - Figure 3*, 101,600E- Figure 4*, 101,640E- Figure 5* and 101,680E- Figure 6*) to the immediate east of lines 101,480E and 101,520E, where significant intersection were reported from the first batch of assay results announced on 2 November 2021. The latest intersections provide further confirmation of the presence of significant copper mineralisation associated with the lightly tested Nifty Syncline keel zone up-plunge of the former underground mine.

The remaining 25 holes drilled in the west pit area have been designed to intersect potential oxide, transition and sulphide ore, as infill and extension along the keel and the south limb of the Nifty Syncline.

Further drilling will be conducted in the south-east and east of the existing pit, which potentially will add the existing 732,000 tonnes of contained copper in the mineral resource at Nifty (refer to Figure 7*).
