Millennial Lithium Announces Approximately 100 Percent Increase to 4,200,000 Tonnes in Measured and Indicated Lithium Resources at Pastos Grandes

Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSXV: ML) (the “Company”), is pleased to report an updated lithium (“Li”) and potassium (“K”) resource statement for its Pastos Grandes brine project in Salta province of Argentina. The NI 43-101 resource statement, detailed in Table 1 below, includes 4,120,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate (“Li2CO3“) equivalent (LCE) and 15,342,000 tonnes of potash (“KCl”) equivalent in the Measured and Indicated Resource categories, with an additional 798,000 tonnes of LCE and 2,973,000 tonnes KCl in the Inferred Resource category. Compared to resource estimates completed by Montgomery & Associates in its previous report titled Measured, Indicated and Inferred Lithium and Potassium Resource Estimate Pastos Grandes Project Salta Province, Argentina and dated December 22, 2017, the updated resources represent an almost 100% increase in the Measured and Indicated LCE tonnage (2017 value of 2,131,000 tonnes LCE).

Farhad Abasov, President and CEO of Millennial Lithium, commented on the updated resources for the Pastos Grandes Project: “We are very excited to see from calculations by our hydrogeological consultants Montgomery & Associates, an approximately 100% increase in the Measured and Indicated lithium resources estimate over the 2017 Measured and Indicated Li resources. This sizable increase in our resource positions Millennial as one of the most prospective lithium brine projects in the world with the potential for a significant lithium operation. The Company now has significant Measured and Indicated lithium resources which, on the completion of ongoing studies, have the potential to be converted to Probable and Possible reserves in support of our Feasibility Study on the Company’s planned lithium carbonate processing operation. Our development work continues with the Feasibility Study and the construction of the pilot processing plant, both slated for completion in Q2.”

The reader is cautioned that mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability

The resource estimate was prepared in accordance with the guidelines of National Instrument 43-101 and uses best practice methods specific to brine resources, including a reliance on core drilling and sampling methods that yield depth-specific chemistry and effective (drainable) porosity measurements. The resource estimation was completed by independent qualified person Mr. Michael Rosko, M.Sc., C.P.G. of the international hydrogeology firm E.L. Montgomery and Associates (M&A).

The resource is defined over a 45 square kilometer footprint using results from rotary and core drilling and depth-specific packer sampling. In addition, the brine was also sampled during long-term (21 days) and short-term pumping (72 hours) tests. The new measured, indicated, and inferred resource was derived from geological and grade/width block models derived from 15,135 metres of core and rotary drilling. The average spacing between core holes is less than 1 km. Geophysical surveys were used to assist with location and anticipated depths for the core holes, but also to identify potential fresh water and to extend the inferred resource. Over most of the basin, the brine resource occurs to within 1 metre of surface and its thickness is defined by the extent of drilling. The maximum depth drilled was 641 metres near the center of the mining concessions, bottoming in a sandy aquifer. The deepest brine sample was obtained at a depth of 641 metres and had a Li concentration of 495 milligrams per litre.

The chemistry of the Pastos Grandes brine is judged to be very favourable. Brine density and the ratios of magnesium and sulfate to lithium are:

  • Density of the brine ranges between 1.20 and 1.22 g/cm3
  • Average Magnesium/Lithium ratio: 6.2
  • Average Sulphate/Lithium ratio: 19.3

Based on the geologic model, approximately 76% of the brine volume in this resource is hosted by predominantly silty and sandy units and 21% by mixed halite. The balance is hosted in gravel or clay dominated units.

The total contained lithium and potassium values are based on measurements of effective (drainable) porosity distributed throughout the aquifer volume that defines this resource. This method of porosity determination is designed to estimate the portion of the total porosity that can theoretically be drained by pumping; however, these in situ estimates may differ from total extractable quantities. The porosity of the resource volume varies with geology but to date effective porosity has been predictable within distinct hydrostratigraphic units; the average for the entire saturated aquifer considered in the resource is approximately 11%.

Portions of the resource located in the clastic sediments at the margins of the salar have been demonstrated to have fresh and brackish water overlying brine. In these areas, fresh water inflow from the surface mixes with salt water in the basin; the resulting lower density fresh water and brackish fluid float on top of the more dense brine before entering the salar margins.

Resource Estimation Methodology

A total of 15,135 metres of drilling from 33 holes was evaluated for this resource estimate calculation. Other core holes and wells were drilled but were shallower. A total of 144 drainable porosity results and 311 depth-specific brine sample analyses were used in the computations, not including QA/QC samples or composite samples obtained during pumping tests. The average spacing of vertical samples for brine chemistry analysis was variable with an average of 25 metres for depth-specific brine samples. Of the 33 holes used for the resource analysis, all were terminated due to drill limitations (hydrogeologic basement was not encountered). The total thickness of the basin and the total thickness of saturated sediments are unknown. Based on drilling, additional brine-bearing aquifer material is likely to exist below 600 metres in the concession area.

The consultants chose to estimate the updated resource using Leapfrog Edge, a well-known 3-dimensional block modeling software tool. Hydrostratigraphic units have variable thickness and were determined by the consultants based on observed lithology and anticipated similar hydraulic properties.

The values for drainable porosity and grade (lithium and potassium values) for each hydrostratigraphic unit were derived from direct measured values from the well. The unit thicknesses combined with the areas yield a volume. The volumes combined with the drainable porosity values, representing the amount of fluid available from the formation yield the volume of brine. Applying the grade, represented as lithium carbonate and potassium chloride equivalents reported as weights by volume of brine then provides the estimated resource for each block, which are then summed.

The primary analytical laboratories for the data used in this resource are NORLAB in Jujuy, Argentina and SGS Laboratory in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Both laboratories are accredited to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO14001:2004 for their geochemical and environmental labs for the preparation and analysis of numerous sample types, including brines.

The porosity determinations were made by Core Laboratories of Houston, Texas and Geosystems Analysis (GSA) of Tucson, Arizona. Core Laboratories is a leading provider of proprietary and patented reservoir description, production enhancement and reservoir management services. Core Laboratories has demonstrated that its Quality Management System is in compliance with certification to ISO 9000:2008. The scope of this registration is: providing state of the art petrophysical and geological analysis and interpretation of core samples from rock. GSA has gained abundant experience since 1994 in methods used by Core Laboratories and has provided services to various other lithium projects located in Argentina and globally.

Qualified Person

The resource evaluation work was completed by Mr. Michael Rosko, M.Sc., C.P.G. of Montgomery and Associates Consultores Limitada (“M&A”). Mr. Rosko is a Registered Geologist (C.P.G.) in Arizona, California, and Texas, a Registered Member of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration, and is a qualified person (QP) as that term is defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Rosko and hydrogeologists from M&A have been on site multiple times during the various phases of drilling and sampling operations. Mr. Rosko has extensive experience in salar environments and has been a QP on many lithium brine projects. Mr. Rosko and M&A are completely independent of Millennial Lithium. Mr. Rosko has reviewed and approved the content of this news release.

White Gold Corp. Commences Exploration on Vertigo Discovery and Newly Identified Targets along Vertigo Trend on JP Ross Property

White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has commenced its $13 million fully funded 2019 exploration program on its extensive 439,000 hectare land package, representing over 40% of the prolific White Gold District in Yukon, Canada. A total of 17,000m of diamond drilling and 7,500m of Reverse Circulation (“RC”) drilling is expected this season as part of the Company’s systematic data driven exploration plan backed by partners Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (TSX: AEM, NYSE: AEM) and Kinross Gold Corp (TSX: K, NYSE: KGC).  Exploration activity has commenced on the JP Ross property focusing on expanding the footprint of the recent Vertigo discovery and other newly identified high priority targets along the 14km Vertigo Trend.

A map outlining the targets on the JP Ross property can be found at http://whitegoldcorp.ca/investors/exploration-highlights/.

Highlights Include:

  • Detailed soil sampling performed in 2018 has proven effective to highlight known mineralization on the Vertigo discovery and also identified several new targets on the Vertigo Trend and across the JP Ross property associated with regional scale structures, demonstrating the potential for multiple mineralized systems. These areas and will be followed up with the GT Probe and other work to further assess the size and intensity of the anomalies and define 2019 drill targets.
  • GT Probe sampling has commenced on the road accessible Vertigo focused on expanding the footprint of the discovery. The GT Probe will also be testing the other targets recently defined on the JP Ross property which demonstrate strong similarities to Vertigo.
  • RC drilling scheduled to commence in early May on the JP Ross property focused on expansion of the Vertigo along strike. An additional 4 to 5 target areas are expected to have RC drilling as follow up to the GT Probe program.
  • Diamond drilling is anticipated to commence in June on the Vertigo discovery. 10,000m of diamond drilling is planned on the Vertigo to evaluate geometry as well as the lateral and vertical continuity of mineralized structures discovered in 2018.

“2018 was a very successful year for White Gold, producing multiple brand-new discoveries including the Vertigo, which returned some of the most significant drill intercepts ever encountered in Yukon.” stated David D’Onofrio, Chief Executive Officer. “We are very excited to have kicked off our 2019 program deploying the GT Probe which has proven to be highly effective in defining drill targets and was instrumental in all four of our discoveries in 2018.  We are eager to follow up on the Vertigo, and test other nearby targets defined late last season through detailed soil sampling, which demonstrate similar geochemical and structural signatures to the Vertigo. We are equally as excited to continue expanding both our flagship Golden Saddle deposit and the recently acquired VG deposit, and to follow up on our other 2018 discoveries, and to test our new high priority regional targets for the first time in 2019. Our recent successes have provided us further confidence in our highly specialized exploration methodologies, and we believe this could be our most exciting program to date.”

Vertigo Exploration
The Company has deployed the GT Probe on the new high-grade, road accessible, Vertigo discovery on its JP Ross property – one of four new gold discoveries made in 2018. The Vertigo consists of a series of W-NW trending, steeply south dipping structures identified over a 650m wide corridor that was traced over 300m through RAB/RC drilling in 2018. The overall system has been traced a further 1,700m to the west through soil sampling, prospecting and geophysical surveys. The GT Probe work will initially focus on the western extension of the Vertigo and is designed to evaluate the footprint of the system and define high priority targets for follow up RC drilling, which is expected to initiate in early May. The GT Probe is a proprietary track-mounted rig designed to take samples from the soil-bedrock interface, resulting in sampling that is both cost effective and with minimal environmental impact.

The combination of GT Probe sampling and detailed infill soil sampling led the Company to the discovery of the Vertigo in 2018. Furthermore, it highlighted the potential for previously unrecognized narrow (<10m) zones of high-grade material (>10 g/t Au) that would have been overlooked using traditional exploration methodologies.

The Vertigo is one of the Company’s most significant discoveries from the 2018 exploration season, with drilling highlights including, Hole JPRVERRAB18-014/JPRVERRC18-013 intersecting 22.47 g/t Au over 30.46m from surface ending in mineralization; Hole JPRVERRAB18-001 intersecting 56.25 g/t Au over 3.05m within a broader intercept of 17.34 g/t Au over 10.67m from 3.05m depth; Hole JPRVERRAB18-006 intersecting 103.90 g/t Au over 1.53m within a broader intercept of 31.35 g/t Au over 6.10m from surface. Multiple high-grade grab samples were also encountered including 304.3 g/t, 156.2 g/t and 139.9 g/t among others.

New Targets on the JP Ross Property
The GT Probe will be also utilized across the JP Ross property to follow up on several high priority targets defined through detailed soil sampling in 2018. Results from the GT Probe and other specialized exploration activity completed on the targets will guide follow up RAB/RC drilling. Details regarding the initial high priority targets to be tested is outlined below:

Topaz

  • Located immediately south of the Vertigo and road accessible.
  • Consists of a series of NE and NW trending gold in soil anomalies over a 500m x 1,500m area with values ranging from trace to 284ppb Au.
  • Similar geochemical signature to the Vertigo (Au-Ag-Bi-Pb+/-As).
  • Rock samples from area returned grades up to 2.79 g/t Au.

Sabotage Trend

  • Located 7.5km northwest of the Vertigo.
  • Consists of multiple zones of anomalous Au in soils over a 1.5km x 5km NE trending area with values from trace to 1,908.3 ppb Au.
  • Detailed infill soil sampling focused on a 450m x 500m area within the Sabotage area in 2018, and returned discreet E-NE and NW trending gold in soil anomalies with values from trace to 295.3 ppb Au.
  • At least 12 other target areas along the Sabotage trend will be detail soil sampled in 2019 with follow up GT Probe and other exploration work as warranted.

Frenzy Trend

  • Located 8.5km north of the Vertigo and road accessible.
  • Consists of a series of gold in soil anomalies over a 1.5km x 3.5km N-NE trend with values ranging from trace to 1,141.6 ppb Au.
  • Detailed infill soil sampling focused on two areas along the Frenzy Trend in 2018. The first covered a 450m x 500m area near the southern end of the trend and returned both NE and NW trending gold in soil anomalies with values from trace to 623.4 ppb Au. The second was at the northern end of the trend covering a 400m x 450m area and returned a N-S trend gold in soil anomaly over the length of the grid with values from trace to 492.8 ppb Au.
  • Detailed soil sampling to be completed on at least 6 other target areas along the Frenzy Trend in 2019, with follow up GT Probe and other work as warranted.

Additional detailed soil sampling will also be conducted on multiple other target areas on the JP Ross property including Suspicion (4.5km SE of Vertigo), Stage Fright (9.5km NW of Vertigo; adjacent to Sabotage), Psycho (6km NE of Vertigo), and Xman (12km N-NE of Vertigo) with follow up GT Probe sampling, geophysical surveys, prospecting, and trenching as warranted.

World Class and Quadron Enter Into Arrangement Agreement

World Class Extractions Inc. (“World Class”) (CSE: PUMP) and Quadron Cannatech Corporation (“Quadron”) (CSE: QCC) are pleased to announce that they have entered into an arrangement agreement providing for the merger of the companies (the “Agreement”).

Summary of the Arrangement

Pursuant to the Agreement, World Class has agreed to acquire, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Quadron (collectively, the “Quadron Shares”) by way of a statutory plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the “Arrangement”). Pursuant to the terms of the Arrangement, shareholders of Quadron (the “Quadron Shareholders”) will receive two (the “Exchange Ratio”) common shares of World Class (each, a “World Class Share”), for every Quadron Share held.

The consideration values Quadron at approximately $0.25 per Quadron Share, representing a premium of approximately 19% to the price of Quadron Shares compared to the closing price on April 12, 2019, and a premium of approximately 12.7% based on the trailing 15-day volume-weighted average price of each company as of the close of trading on April 12, 2019. Upon completion of the Arrangement, it is expected that Quadron Shareholders will receive approximately 143,300,894 World Class Shares, representing approximately 24.1% of the total issued and outstanding World Class Shares on a post-Arrangement basis.

Benefits of the Arrangement

The proposed Arrangement offers a number of benefits to the shareholders of both World Class and Quadron. The combined entities will leverage Quadron’s technical expertise, established customer base and seasoned management team with World Class’ unique patent-pending technology and strong cash position resulting from its recent $23,000,000 private placement. The proposed Arrangement would produce the following synergies:

  • Quadron’s extraction and processing systems, which are automated and have been simplified relative to comparable technologies;
  • A extensive roster of Quadron executives and employees that have been operating in the extraction and processing sector for over four years;
  • An established and growing revenue stream, as demonstrated by Quadron’s revenue increasing by 132.54% for the nine months ended January 31, 2019 when compared to the same period in 2017;
  • World Class’ unique patent-pending technology, which World Class anticipates will provide higher yields of full spectrum cannabis oil at faster rates and larger volumes than current extraction technologies; and
  • A strong cash position resulting from World Class’ recently-closed private placement for gross proceeds of approximately $23,000,000.

Rosy Mondin, CEO of Quadron, stated, “There is no doubt that the extraction and processing of cannabis oils will become an incredibly important facet of the overall cannabis industry. By bringing together Quadron and World Class, two complementary businesses, we are creating a stronger enterprise to achieve long-term growth and value creation for our shareholders. Strengthing production and operations as key competitive factors and enhancing our prospects to innovate and lead, we are tightly aligned in our goal of becoming a global leader in the emerging, and rapidly growing, cannabis oils market.”

Michael McCombie, Chief Executive Officer of World Class, added, “The merger of Quadron and World Class positions World Class to become a global leader in extraction, processing, and large-scale processing of CBD from hemp. Quadron’s team of seasoned executives and proven ability to generate revenue in the extraction sector is exactly what World Class needs in order to separate ourselves from the pack, and take a leadership position in the nascent extraction sector.”

Management and Directors

Upon completion of the Arrangement, the board of World Class will be reconstituted to comprise five directors, including two directors nominated by World Class, two directors nominated by Quadron and one independent director acceptable to both World Class and Quadron. With respect to the management team of World Class upon completion of the Arrangement, Rosy Mondin will serve as the Chief Executive Officer and Leo Chamberland will serve as President.

Advisors

M Partners Inc. has provided a fairness opinion to the Board of Directors of Quadron that the Arrangement is fair, from a financial point of view. First Republic Capital Corporation (“First Republic”) is acting as financial advisor to World Class. In addition to other fees and expenses payable to First Republic, World Class is required to pay a success fee (the “Success Fee”) to First Republic and Canaccord Genuity Corp. upon closing of the Arrangement equal to, respectively, approximately 2.73% and 0.77% of the aggregate fair market value of the World Class Shares issuable by World Class to Quadron’s shareholders, and payable in World Class Shares.

Boards of Directors’ Recommendations 

The Board of Directors of World Class, and the Board of Directors of Quadron have both unanimously approved the proposed Arrangement.

Directors, management and certain key Quadron Shareholders representing over 23% of the issued and outstanding Quadron Shares have signed lockup agreements to vote their respective Quadron Shares in favour of the Arrangement.

Further Details

The Arrangement will be implemented through a triangular amalgamation under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) in which a wholly-owned subsidiary of World Class will amalgamate with Quadron to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of World Class and Quadron Shareholders will receive World Class Shares based on the Exchange Ratio.

Upon closing of the Arrangement: (i) all outstanding stock options of Quadron will be adjusted in accordance with the stock option plan of Quadron and will be exercisable for World Class Shares on the basis of the Exchange Ratio; and (ii) all unexercised Quadron Share purchase warrants will be adjusted in accordance with the terms of the warrant certificates governing such Quadron Share purchase warrants such that they shall be exercisable to purchase World Class Shares on the basis of the Exchange Ratio and will expire in accordance with their current expiry dates.

The Agreement contains representations and warranties for the benefit of each of World Class and Quadron, conditions relating to shareholder, court and regulatory approvals, material adverse changes and compliance with the Agreement as are in each case customary in comparable transactions of this nature.

Completion of the Arrangement is subject to a number of conditions being satisfied or waived by one or both of World Class and Quadron at or prior to closing of the Arrangement, including: approval of the Quadron Securityholders, together with any requisite minority approvals; and receipt of all necessary regulatory and court approvals and the satisfaction of certain other closing conditions customary for a transaction of this nature.

The Agreement includes deal protection provisions that are customary in Canadian board-supported transactions on the part of both Quadron and World Class (subject to customary fiduciary out provisions). There is a mutual break fee commensurate with a transaction of this size being $1,500,000.

Details of the Arrangement, including a summary of the terms and conditions of the Arrangement Agreement, will be disclosed in a management information circular of Quadron, which will be mailed to Quadron Shareholders and will also be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The Agreement will also be filed on the SEDAR profiles of each of World Class and Quadron.

It is expected that the special meeting of Quadron Shareholders (the “Meeting”) to approve the proposed Arrangement will be held in early June 2019 and, if approved at the Meeting, it is expected that the Arrangement would close approximately a week thereafter.

Goldplay Discovers New Gold Zone At San Marcial In Low

Goldplay Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: GPLY, FRANKFURT: GPE, OTCQB: GLYXF) (“Goldplay” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that as a result of its ongoing surface exploration at the San Marcial Project, initial channel  samples indicate a new gold (Au) discovery the Nava Target. The new gold discovery is located approximately 1.5 kilometres to the west of the San Marcial silver NI 43 101 resource (see News Release dated 7 February 2019), within an area currently showing an extensive hydrothermal altered zone, 500 meters long x 100 m wide, hosting low sulphidation intensive quartz veining and stockwork mineralization..

Recent and historical artisanal tunnels in the Nava Zone were channel sampled by Goldplay, with assay results up to 10 grams per tonne (g/t) Au received from a set of sub-parallel quartz low sulphidation epithermal veins. Visible gold has been observed in panned quartz vein samples from some of the channel samples in the Nava Zone (Figure 1). The Nava Zone is one of the priority targets that was identified by Goldplay earlier this year (see News Release dated 18 January 2019) and is located at the western extent of the Faisanes-Nava structural trend (“Faisanes – Nava Corridor”) which leads from the San Marcial silver resource (Figure 2).

The Nava Zone consists of a prominent hill with historical artisanal workings, including numerous shallow pits. In addition to the pits, three old tunnels, that follow a series of sub parallel NE-SW trending quartz veins, were re-opened (Figure 3). Two of the tunnels have been worked recently by artisanal miners, extracting gold-rich quartz vein material. These two of the tunnels are on the west side of the hill (T-003 and T-004), located approximately 30 m apart, with evidence of not only quartz veining but also stockwork systems between them. The third tunnel (T-005) is on the east side of the hill approximately 160 m away, along the NE strike of the veins, with evidence of connection with T-004. Shallow pits are scattered in the area between the tunnels, demonstrating potential for definition of wide mineralized zones on surface.

Goldplay President and CEO Marcio Fonseca commented, “Over the past months Goldplay has actively explored the 1,250 ha of the San Marcial concession with soil, rock chip and channel sampling, identifying and testing targets that will add value to the San Marcial silver resource, by expanding or discovering new mineralized zones. High grade gold results with visible (panned) gold from epithermal quartz veins within artisanal tunnels in the Nava Zone provide encouragement for a gold mineralized low sulphidation epithermal system, just 1.5 km west of the high-grade hydrothermal breccia-hosted silver resource. The new Nava Zone gold discovery suggests that the San Marcial Project has potential to be a significant multi-commodity play, with proven occurrence of gold and silver mineralization together with series of old artisanal mine workings on the Faisanes – Nava Corridor. We are focused on additional sampling and trenching at Nava to define the extent and geometry of the gold mineralization, on surface, and identify targets to follow up with drilling.”

The Nava Zone consists of a set of NE trending mineralized quartz veins, as well as a recently discovered new zone of intense stockwork and associated alteration located approximately 300m to the west (Figure 3). The veins are interpreted to be in a low sulphidation regime and hosted within a porphyritic dacite and an andesitic tuff unit, in proximity to the contact with an underlying epiclastic volcanic package (Figure 4). The Nava Zone has no previous drilling.

Results range from 1.04 g/t up to 10.0 g/t Au from channel sampling across quartz vein material in the tunnels (Table 1 and Figure 4).

Channel samples from the Nava tunnels were collected with a rock saw, typically perpendicular to the strike of the major structures/veins being tested. The samples were sent to the SGS de México, S.A. de C.V laboratory facilities in Durango, Mexico where they were analyzed for gold using fire assay, and multi-elements (including silver) using ICP. Results from the other elements analyzed in the laboratory process are currently being reviewed.

Follow up Exploration

The Company has placed a high priority on exploration activities in the Nava Zone following this recent new gold discovery. Current exploration activities include surface trenching to expose the mineralized veins as well as local quartz stockwork material (Figure 5), particularly in the main hill area in between trenches T-003 and T-004 on the west, and T-005 on the east side. This area has numerous historical surface pits. Geological mapping and additional channel sampling will be carried out to also test for extensions of the mineralization along strike to the NE and SW. This current exploration also includes the stockwork zone located 300m to the west of the tunnels (Figure 3). It is anticipated that the current activities will lead to definition of drill targets to test the depth continuity of the gold mineralization at Nava.

The Company continues to advance surface exploration at other targets on the San Marcial Project as identified by soil and rock sampling (News Release dated 18 January 2019). These targets, including Faisanes, are yet to be drilled and are located in the vicinity of the NI 43 101  Mineral Resource. Goldplay has already received drilling permits to advance a significant drilling program in 2019.

Qualified Person

The scientific and technical data contained in this news release related to the San Marcial Project was reviewed and/or prepared under the supervision of Marcio Fonseca, P.Geo., a non-independent qualified person to Goldplay Exploration Ltd. who is responsible to ensure that the geological information contained in this news release is accurate and who acts as “qualified person” under the National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure of Mineral Projects.

Quality Assurance Program and Quality Control Procedures (“QA/QC”)

Goldplay has implemented QA/QC procedures which include insertion of blank and standard samples in all sample lots sent to SGS de México, S.A. de C.V laboratory facilities in Durango, Mexico, for sample preparation and assaying. For every sample with results above Ag >100 ppm (over limits), these samples are submitted directly by SGS de Mexico to SGS Canada Inc at Burnaby, BC.

About Goldplay Exploration Ltd.

Goldplay owns a >250 sq. km exploration portfolio in the historical Rosario Au-Ag Mining District, Sinaloa, Mexico. Goldplay’s current exploration focus includes surface exploration and drilling, to expand resources at the San Marcial Project, as well as a follow up exploration program at the El Habal Project.

The San Marcial land package consists of 1,250 ha, located south of the La Rastra and Plomosas historical mines and 20 km from the Company’s 100% owned El Habal Project in the Rosario Mining District, Sinaloa, Mexico. San Marcial is an attractive, near-surface high-grade silver, lead and zinc project for which a NI 43-101 resource estimate was completed by Goldplay in early 2019.

San Marcial exhibits significant exploration upside supported by regional exploration programs completed by previous operators who identified 14 exploration targets similar to San Marcial within its 100% Goldplay-owned concessions. Some of these exploration targets consist of old shallow pits, caved shafts and historical underground workings in areas with extensive hydrothermal alteration, hosted by major regional structures.

The El Habal Project is a drilling stage project. The oxidized gold mineralized zone outcrops along a series of rolling hills with evidence of historical shallow underground mining along a 6 km long prospective corridor. The El Habal Project is located near the historical gold-silver Rosario Mine which reportedly operated for over 250 years. Goldplay’s team has over 30 years of experience with senior roles in exploration, financing, and development in the mining industry, including over ten years of extensive exploration experience in the Rosario Mining District, leading to previous successful discoveries. A current NI 43-101 report on the El Habal Project is filed on SEDAR.

Canadian Orebodies Completes Smoke Lake Drilling and Commences Sampling Historic Core

Canadian Orebodies Inc. (the “Company”) (TSXV:CORE) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced drill program to explore for the extension and potential additional high-grade gold-bearing veins in the Smoke Lake Gold System (“SLGS”) on the Black Raven property (see press release dated February 22, 2019).

This drill campaign consisted of 10 holes totaling approximately 1,305 metres, with a majority of the holes drilled off ice pads located on Smoke Lake. Management was particularly pleased with the drilling program and looks forward to receiving the assay results. All drill core has been cut and shipped to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Thunder Bay, ON for preparation and assay, and results will be press released once interpreted.

The Company has also commenced an extensive re-logging, sampling and digitization program to interpret the geological controls on the distribution of gold in the Wire Lake Gold System (WLGS). The sampling program will focus on alteration zones that went unrecognized in past exploration activities. The Wire Lake Gold System extends over a strike length of 3 km and has a complex and protracted history of tectonic deformation, gold mineralization, hydrothermal alteration and magma injections.

The historic and 2017 drilling revealed that the WLGS consists of broad zones of gold mineralization in a volcanic sequence characterized by an alteration package which is not visually evident. An on-going review of the sampling patterns in the historic holes completed in the WLGS has revealed that sampling of the core did not occur in areas now recognized as zones of potential gold mineralization.

The objectives of the sampling program are to confirm if zones of significant mineralization have gone undetected and to develop a better understanding of the geological and structural controls of the gold mineralization. The company anticipates that a better geological understanding of the mineralization footprint and controls of the WLGS will lead to new and improved exploration targets with the expectation of expanding the mineralized zones and lead to the discovery of new zones of higher-grade mineralization.

Analytical methods and Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC”) Measures

Canadian Orebodies has implemented a quality-control program to comply with best practices in the collection and analysis of rock samples. All drill cores are BTW in size and assays are completed on sawed half-cores, with the second half of the core kept for future reference. Groups of samples are then placed into durable rice bags and then transported in security-sealed bags to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Thunder Bay, ON for preparation and assay. Routine gold analyses are fire assay with an AA (atomic absorption) finish whereas samples with visible gold or rich in quartz veins and sulfides are analysed using 1-kilogram metallic screen fire assay. The remaining coarse reject portions of the samples remain in storage if further work or verification is needed.

In addition to the standard quality control of the laboratory Canadian Orebodies 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, the Company inserts external gold standards and blanks every 20 samples.

Qualified Person

This press release has been prepared under the supervision of Mr. Quentin Yarie (P.Geo.), who is a consultant to the Company and a “qualified person” (as such term is defined in National Instrument 43-101). Mr. Yarie has verified the technical data disclosed in this press release.

Skyharbour Partner Company Azincourt VTEM Survey Completed and Adds to East Preston Prospectivity

Skyharbour Resources Ltd. SYH)”>(TSX-V:SYH) (OTCQB:SYHBF) (Frankfurt:SC1P) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its partner company Azincourt Energy Corp. (“Azincourt”) has preliminary results from the recent helicopter-borne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM™ Max) and Magnetic survey conducted over the southeastern portion of the East Preston Uranium Project, located in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.

Preston Uranium Project Map:
http://skyharbourltd.com/_resources/maps/SYH-Patterson-Lake.pdf

The survey was conducted between January 23rd and February 6th, 2019, and completed survey coverage over the entire 25,000-ha project area. This survey consisted of 498 line-km with 300 m line spacing and 1,000 m tie-line spacing – identical parameters to the previous VTEM™ Max survey, and ties directly into the previous flight lines. Flight lines are oriented NW-SE, perpendicular to the NE-SW trending structural and conductor trends of the basement rocks at East Preston.

Geotech, the survey provider, is finalizing final reports, but has completed data processing and has provided a merged dataset covering the entire East Preston project by combining the newly acquired VTEM survey data with the original VTEM data coverage. In-depth interpretation is on-going by Bingham Geoscience, geophysical consultants to Azincourt.  Results of the interpretation will be reported once received and reviewed.

The initial interpretation of this new survey data has added an additional 7.5 km to 10 km along two of the same prospective previously-known conductive trends. There are offset breaks in the conductor trends with multiple, discreet conductors interpreted.

East Preston VTEM Survey:

Marathon Drilling Further Confirming Continuity of Main Zone Gold: 3.52 g/t Au over 45.0m, 2.61 g/t Au over 75.0m and 1.82 g/t Au over 50.0m, Valentine Gold Camp, NL

Drilling Highlights:

  • The ongoing infill drilling program at the Marathon Deposit is designed to penetrate down through the main mineralized corridor as well as into the hanging wall and foot wall zones of the open pit (Figure 1). The aim of the infill drilling campaign is three-fold: to increase confidence in the lateral and vertical continuity of high-grade gold mineralization by drilling between adjacent drill holes; to penetrate gold intervals in the hanging wall and footwall regions where there is wide spaced drilling; and to convert inferred into measured and indicated resource categories.
    • Main Zone: MA-19-372 intersected 3.52 g/t Au over 45.0 meters with 16.16 g/t Au over 2.0 meters and 14.25 g/t Au over 4.0 meters, as well as 3.35 g/t Au over 16.0 meters with 18.28 g/t Au over 2.0 meters.
    • Main Zone: MA-19-370 intersected 2.61 g/t Au over 75.0 meters with 7.71 g/t Au over 6.0 meters, 20.27 g/t Au over 2.0 meters and 28.44 g/t Au over 2.0 meters.
    • Main Zone: MA-19-361 intersected 1.82 g/t Au over 50.0 meters with 5.35 over 6.0 meters and 6.13 g/t Au over 3.0 meters.
    • Hanging Wall: MA-19-364 intersected 2.23 g/t Au over 6.0 meters and 5.65 g/t Au over 3.0, and MA-19-365 intersected 1.84 g/t over 4.0 meters.
    • Footwall Zone: MA-19-362 intersected 2.23 g/t Au over 11.0 meters, and MA-19-369 intersected 1.93 g/t Au over 8.0 meters.

Program Update:

  • The 2019 infill drilling campaign continues at the Valentine Gold Camp with two drills operating at the Leprechaun deposit and one drill operating at the Marathon Deposit.
  • Advanced metallurgical testing of material from both the Marathon and Leprechaun Deposits is continuing with focus on optimizing both mill and heap leach recoveries.
  • An Environmental Assessment Registration / Project Description was submitted to the Federal and Provincial regulators on April 5, 2019; a key step in the overall regulatory approvals process.

TORONTO, April 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Marathon Gold Corporation (“Marathon” or the “Company”) (TSX: MOZ) is pleased to announce the continued success of the infill drilling campaign at the Marathon deposit. The new drilling has returned excellent results proving further lateral and vertical continuity of the high-grade gold between adjacent drill holes and confirming significant gold intervals in both hanging wall and footwall zones of the deposit to help reduce the strip ratio for the open pit. These drilling results continue to provide further confirmation of Marathon’s geological model and will assist in upgrading existing inferred resources within the Marathon Deposit into the Measured and Indicated resource categories.

“The 2019 drilling program is producing impressive results at the Marathon and Leprechaun deposits. At Marathon, the Main Zone is being drilled at a spacing of 10 to 20 meters between holes to give Measured and Indicated resources showing very good correlation with most of the high-grade intercepts in adjacent holes,” said Phillip Walford, President and CEO of Marathon Gold. “All of the holes  we are reporting are in the Marathon PEA pit shell and the longer intercepts reported in this release will have a positive impact on the resource grade.”

About Marathon

Marathon is a Toronto based gold exploration company rapidly advancing its 100% owned Valentine Gold Camp located in Newfoundland and Labrador, one of the top mining jurisdictions in the world. The Valentine Gold Camp currently hosts four near-surface, mainly pit-shell constrained, deposits with measured and indicated resources totaling 2,691,400 oz. of gold at 1.85 g/t and inferred resources totaling 1,531,600 oz. of gold at 1.77 g/t. The majority of the resources occur in the Marathon and Leprechaun deposits, which also have resources below the current open pit shell. Both deposits are open to depth and on strike. Gold mineralization has been traced down over 350 meters vertically at Leprechaun and almost a kilometer at Marathon. The four deposits identified to date occur over a 20-kilometer system of gold bearing veins, with much of the 24,000-hectare property having had only minimal exploration activity to date.

The Valentine Gold Camp is accessible by year-round road and is in close proximity to the provincial electrical grid. Marathon maintains a 50-person all-season camp at the property. Recent metallurgical tests have demonstrated 93% to 98% recoveries via conventional milling and 50% to 70% recoveries via low cost heap leaching at both the Leprechaun and Marathon Deposits.
