Cartier Resources: Building Economic Gold Ounces at Chimo, Quebec

There are huge advantages to a brownfield project. Past producing mines come with a valuable legacy of geological and engineering data that is backed by production numbers and, sometimes, leftover mineralization.  On the Chimo Mine project this is the case since the mine was closed due to weak gold prices and not lack of mineralization.  Factor that in with underground infrastructure that can be readily rehabilitated and it becomes a manageable challenge to prove up the “blue sky”. That’s what Cartier Resources (V.ECR) has been up to in the last two years.

Cartier’s most recent press release confirms that there is, indeed, mineralization at depth in the newly discovered structures. Cartier’s CEO commented, “These new results, highlight the importance of prioritizing continued exploration of Zones 5M4 and 5NE in order to maximize the potential of drill results previously reported in the main Zones 5B and 5M.” (See Figure)

“The release was all about the success of a pilot hole and it’s branches” explained Cloutier. “We were trying to widen the zone by using directional drilling. Same hole, multiple intersections and they are all drilled from the same collar. These results demonstrate that our new discovery continues at depth and it gives the new zone some width.” Adding, “there is all the reason to expect that this zone will extend at depth as the main mine plunge did in Phase I drilling.”

“This is the same gold structure as the mine,” said Cloutier. “Same metallurgy, same rock mechanics. And the new structure extends at depth, gets wider and is showing better grades.”

You have to look carefully at the figures to understand just how significant these results may prove to be. If a company was planning to re-open the Chimo mine it would want to know that there was enough mineralized material within a reasonable distance from the current shaft to make the mine profitable. While the new results are at 1000 meters depth, the mineralized intervals are only a few hundred meters from existing infrastructure.

“Our peers understand this,” said Cloutier. “Local producers get it.”

“Our Phase One drilling was proof of concept,” said Cloutier. “We wanted to confirm that the mine trend continues at depth, which we did. And we wanted to confirm that there were lateral extensions, which we also did. Phase Two was looking for additional mineralized structures relatively close to the shaft. We thought they were there and we found them.”

“Phase Three, where we are now, is looking to confirm that the new mineralized structures continue on down to shaft depth and more!” said Cloutier. The other thing the new results indicate is that the new discovery has a “tilt” and that tilt is towards the old shaft and workings. Essentially, as Cartier had drilled deeper its intersections have been getting closer and closer to the existing infrastructure. Naturally, Cloutier hopes that further drilling will bring the new discovery even closer to the existing infrastructure.

Cloutier, CEO of Cartier Resources, knows all this which is why Cartier bought the Chimo Mine located 45 km east of Val-d’Or, Quebec. “We know the metallurgy and the rock mechanics because they are identical to the old Chimo mine,” said Cartier. “The anticipated CAPEX is very low because there is already a shaft. There is a skilled workforce nearby and mills to process the Chimo rock are just down the road.”

The key question any potential acquirer or joint venture partner needs to answer is how many economic ounces are there on the Chimo project. It is a question which involves both a resource estimate and the ability to accurately map where the resources are relative to the existing shaft and drifts.

Cartier has been fortunate to have had significant support from its investors which include Agnico Eagle. “In a prolonged bear market, we continued to drill. Now is the time for modelling of all the new data generated and comparing its behaviour to previous mining,” said Cloutier.

“We are in the process of completing the wireframes for all the mineralized zones on the project as well as the wireframes for what was previously mined, the results will help the Resource Estimate,” said Cloutier.

In many ways, however, the traditional 43-101 resource estimate is not likely to actually capture the value of the combination ounces in the ground and their proximity to a well developed, albeit flooded, mine. A decent sized resource from 500 to 1200 meters below the surface may not be economic if a company has to sink a shaft that deep to mine it. However, those same ounces adjacent to an easily dewatered mine shaft and tunnels could become very economic indeed.

Chimo’s potential to become the next mine is becoming better known in the local producing community. “finding new ounces is always a challenge but when one does, finding the organization with a strategic interest and ability to pay, generally follows,” said Cloutier.

White Gold Corp. Commences 17,000m Diamond Drill Program on the JP Ross and White Gold Properties

White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC – Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has commenced its 2019 diamond drill program on two of its highest priority properties: the JP Ross and White Gold properties. The diamond drill program is a central component of the Company’s $13 million fully funded 2019 exploration program backed by partners Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (TSX: AEM, NYSE: AEM) and Kinross Gold Corp (TSX: K, NYSE: KGC).

Highlights Include:

  • 10,000m of diamond drilling on the JP Ross property focused on the Vertigo target. The 2019 diamond drill program will focus on evaluating the geometry as well as the lateral and vertical continuity of the high-grade mineralized structures discovered in 2018.
  • The Vertigo program represents initial diamond drill testing of the Vertigo discovery which produced several high-grade, near surface Reverse Circulation (“RC”) drill intercepts in 2018 including 22.47 g/t Au over 30.46m from surface, as well as high-grade grab samples including 304.3 g/t, 156.2 g/t, 139.9 g/t, 135.6 g/t and 132.9g/t Au.
  • 6,000m of diamond drilling on the White Gold property focused on the Golden Saddle, GS West and Arc deposits.
  • The program will focus on expansion of current deposits which include an Indicated Mineral Resource of 1,039,600 oz Au within 14,330,000 tonnes at 2.26 g/t gold and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 508,700 oz Au within 10,696,000 tonnes at 1.48 g/t gold.
  • 1,000m of diamond drilling on the VG Deposit which hosts a historic Inferred Resource of 230,000 oz Au.

“We are very excited to have initiated our 2019 diamond drilling program on some of our highest priority targets, including the Vertigo, White Gold and VG to follow up on our success in 2018,” stated David D’Onofrio, Chief Executive Officer. “The goal of this diamond drill program is threefold: to continue to expand Golden Saddle/Arc’s established resources, to follow up on JP Ross’s exciting high grade Vertigo discovery last season and to grow the recently acquired and underexplored VG Deposit. We have also commenced the regional exploration program across our extensive land package, focused on generating a strong pipeline of discoveries and resource growth.”

JP Ross Property – Vertigo Target
A Phase 1 program consisting of 10,000m of diamond drilling on the Vertigo target will focus on defining the geometry of mineralized structures along trend, and evaluating the lateral and vertical continuity of the mineralization. This includes evaluation of the target across the currently defined width of the zone and up to 500m of strike length along the core of the system.

The Vertigo target on the JP Ross property is comprised of 2,850 quartz claims covering over 57,000 hectares with at least 14 defined target areas and numerous placer gold bearing creeks.  Previously announced drill results on the Vertigo target range from trace to 22.47 g/t Au over 30.46m from surface (JPRVERRAB18-014/JPRVERRC18-013), 56.25 g/t Au over 3.05m from 3.05m depth, within a broader intercept of 17.34 g/t Au over 10.67m, (JPRVERRAB18-001) and 45.00 g/t Au over 3.05m from 1.52m depth, within a broader intercept of 9.65 g/t Au over 15.24m (JPRVERRAB18-011). Additional exploration in the area also encountered multiple high-grade grab samples including 304.3 g/t, 156.2 g/t, 139.9 g/t, 135.6 g/t and 132.9g/t Au, defining a strike length of approximately 2.2km on the Vertigo target along a larger 18km mineralized trend. The Vertigo Target is located approximately 25km north of the Company’s flagship White Gold property and is within 2km of an existing road accessible from Dawson City.

To date, at least 12 mineralized structures are recognized on the Vertigo target over a 2,200m x 650m area, and consist of W-NW trending, steeply dipping zones of quartz veining, brecciation, and fracture-controlled mineralization with disseminated to vein-controlled pyrite-arsenopyrite-galena and locally, visible gold mineralization.

White Gold Property – Golden Saddle/GS West and Arc
A Phase 1 program consisting of 6,000m of diamond drilling is planned for the Golden Saddle and Arc deposits. At the Golden Saddle, drilling will focus on expansion of the GS West zone, both along strike and down-dip. Limited historic drilling has occurred between the GS West and the GS Main and one of the Company’s key objectives for the 2019 season will be to expand this zone and explore the potential continuity between the two zones. Drilling will also be conducted on the GS Main and GS Footwall and will focus on infilling gaps in the current model; particularly the high-grade core. Included in this high-grade core is 525,600 gold ounces at a grade of 4.68 g/t gold in the Indicated category and 81,900 gold ounces at a grade of 4.74 g/t gold Inferred using a >3 g/t cut-off. Drilling activity on the Arc will focus on expansion of the deposit along strike, and targeted infill drilling to evaluate continuity on higher grade (>2g/t Au) areas within the model. Numerous other targets are known on the property and additional drilling may be conducted in these areas as warranted.

The White Gold Property is located 25km south of the JP Ross – Vertigo target and is host to the Golden Saddle and Arc deposits. The Company recently announced an updated mineral resource estimate(1) on the deposits consisting of an Indicated Mineral Resource of 1,039,600 gold ounces within 14,330,000 tonnes at 2.26 g/t gold and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 508,700 gold ounces within 10,696,000 tonnes at 1.48 g/t gold representing an increase of 25% based on 2018 exploration activity.

Approximately 86% of the resource is within the Golden Saddle which consists of three NE trending, NW dipping, zones of mineralization (GS Main, GS Footwall, & GS West) occurring along faults, fractures, and breccia zones in an overall normal to strike-slip structural regime. Together, the zones define mineralization over 1,500m strike length and from surface up to 725m down dip. This includes a continuous high-grade core of mineralization >3 g/t Au on the GS Main that is up to 50m true-thickness and traceable over 500m of strike length and from surface up to 530m down-dip. The GS West, a new discovery in 2018 and contributing an estimated 62,500 oz Au (1,339,000 tonnes at 1.45 g/t Au) to the resource, is located approximately 750m west of the GS Main and is interpreted as a western continuation of the Golden Saddle structural system.

The Arc is located approximately 400m south of the Golden Saddle and consists of two zones, the Arc Main and Arc Footwall zones. Both zones trend E-NE and dip to the north at approximately 50 degrees.  Mineralization at the Arc has been defined, through limited drilling, over 1,200m in strike length and up to 450m down dip with mineralization open along strike and down dip.

QV Property – VG Zone
Included in the Company’s regional program is 1,000m of diamond drilling focused on testing strike extensions of the historically underexplored VG resource located on the QV property, recently acquired from Comstock Metals.

Large portions of the property remain unexplored, which leaves a strong potential for the discovery of additional zones of structurally-controlled and/or intrusion-related mineralization, with several currently unexplored known targets with similar characteristics to the Golden Saddle and Vertigo.  Approximately 4,300m of diamond drilling over 23 holes has been conducted on the VG to date. Of these, only 17 diamond drill holes formed the basis of a 2014 maiden resource estimate(2) of 230,000 oz of gold (4.4 million tonnes grading 1.65 g/t Au) in the Inferred category at a cut-off of 0.5 g/t Au.

The VG resource is open along strike and at depth, and has similar mineralization and structural control to the nearby Golden Saddle deposit. The QV property is 16,335 hectares (40,000 acres) and contiguous to the Company’s White Gold property which hosts its Golden Saddle and Arc deposits, 20 km southwest of the Vertigo discovery on its JP Ross property and 44 km northwest of Newmont Goldcorp Corporation’s Coffee project. The resource and property were acquired by White Gold Corp from Comstock Metals in early 2019.

The analytical work for the 2019 drilling program will be performed by ALS Canada Ltd. an internationally recognized analytical services provider, at its Vancouver, British Columbia laboratory.  Sample preparation was carried out at its Whitehorse, Yukon facility. All RC chip and diamond core samples will be prepared using procedure PREP-31H (crush 90% less than 2mm, riffle split off 500g, pulverize split to better than 85% passing 75 microns) and analyzed by method Au-AA23 (30g fire assay with AAS finish) and ME-ICP41 (0.5g, aqua regia digestion and ICP-AES analysis). Samples containing >10g/t Au will be reanalyzed using method Au-GRAV21 (30g Fire Assay with gravimetric finish).

The reported work will be completed using industry standard procedures, including a quality assurance/quality control (“QA/QC”) program consisting of the insertion of certified standard, blanks and duplicates into the sample stream.

About White Gold Corp.
The Company owns a portfolio of 22,040 quartz claims across 35 properties covering over 439,000 hectares representing over 40% of the Yukon’s White Gold District. The Company’s flagship White Gold property has a mineral resource of 1,039,600 ounces Indicated at 2.26 g/t Au and 508,700 ounces Inferred at 1.48 g/t Au. Mineralization on the Golden Saddle and Arc is also known to extend beyond the limits of the current resource estimate. Regional exploration work has also produced several other prospective targets on the Company’s claim packages which border sizable gold discoveries including the Coffee project owned by Goldcorp Inc. with a M&I gold resource(3) of 3.4M oz and Western Copper and Gold Corporation’s Casino project which has P&P gold reserves(3) of 8.9M oz Au and 4.5B lb Cu.

Precipitate: Finding the Sweetspot in the Dominican Republic

June is a bit of a news desert in the junior exploration space. In Canada, the explorers are out drilling and results will not be available for a few weeks or months. Which gave me the opportunity to reach out to Jeff Wilson, CEO of Precipitate Gold (V.PRG)

Precipitate put out a press release June 3 which detailed the results of an extensive soil sampling program focused on the Loma Cuaba target zone within its 100% owned Pueblo Grande Project located immediately adjacent to, and virtually surrounding Barrick’s world-class Pueblo Viejo gold-silver mine in the Dominican Republic. In that release Wilson is quoted as saying, “We are very pleased that our first phase of field work within this highly prospective zone has identified and refined numerous multi-element soil anomalies enriched with many of the important elements commonly associated high sulphidation epithermal mineralization. The infill soil sampling program provides us with an important layer of high-resolution data that will greatly assist with our ongoing geological interpretation of the Loma Cuaba Lithocap Zone. We look forward to augmenting this new geochemical data with pending results from our ground magnetic survey and geological mapping program as we compile critical components for plotting our initial drill targets in the months ahead.”

I reached Wilson by phone and asked how the project was going. “We’re getting into a lot more detail now,” said Wilson. “For example, our soil sampling was on 50 meter centers while prior work was done at 100 meter centers.”

Wilson is looking forward to receiving and releasing the results of the ground magnetic survey in the next few weeks. While the property has been flown magnetically, the ground mag will have higher resolution and will give a more subtle sense of the magnetic anomalies. At the same time, detailed geological mapping by high-level geos will help to identify interesting geological features that may have been overlooked or mislabelled by previous explorers.

It is all in aid of picking the targets for a drilling program expected to run between 4000 and 5000 meters. “We won’t be drilling too deep,” said Wilson. “300, maybe 400 meters at most.”

The drilling program will be designed to test the lithocap hypothesis. Is there a mineralized structure under a couple of hundred meters (or less) of barren rock?

With Barrick’s world-class Pueblo Viejo gold-silver mine pit literally less than a kilometer away from Precipitate’s claim boundary, Wilson is more than a little optimistic that there will be mineralization. Right now, the objective is to outline drill targets which will give Precipitate proof of concept.

Down the road? Obviously, Barrick would be interested in any new deposit delineated right next door to it’s already huge Pueblo Veijo mine. However, Wilson has been taking calls and having meetings with other significant gold mining companies who are equally interested.

Worth watching in the next few months.

Skyharbour Partner Company Azincourt’s Initial Drilling Confirms East Preston Basement 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 reported results from the recent phase one drill program at the East Preston Uranium Project, located in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Preston Uranium Project Map:

The initial drill campaign has confirmed the prospectivity of the East Preston project, as basement lithologies and graphitic structures intersected at East Preston are very similar and appear to be analogous to the Patterson Lake South, Arrow and Hook Lake/Spitfire uranium deposit host rocks and setting. A total of 552 meters of drilling was completed in three holes prior to the onset of spring break-up conditions that impacted the duration of the program. The rapid onset of spring required shifting from entirely overland-supported drilling to helicopter-supported drilling. All drill holes targeted multiple closely spaced discreet graphitic conductors with coincident gravity low anomalies often indicative of alteration or thicker overburden due to enhanced glacial scouring over altered, or structurally disrupted basement.

Azincourt’s President and CEO, Alex Klenman stated: “We are certainly very pleased with the results of the first few holes, it’s an excellent start to initial drill testing at East Preston. We have confirmed the project contains the appropriate environment – both geologically and geochemically – that is consistent with uranium mineralization in the area. That’s a significant confirmation, and to be able to determine this at the outset is a very positive development. These are the right graphitic-rich host rocks and given we have just started drilling, we’re obviously optimistic about what’s ahead. We have dozens of high priority targets yet to drill, and thanks to recent substantial institutional support we are well funded to execute a much larger phase two program. Permitting is already underway, we have the cash, and we have the targets. Our timing looks good with sector developments as well. We’re excited to get more drill holes in the ground and will announce details of the upcoming phase two drill campaign soon.”

The East Preston project lies immediately south of the interpreted southern edge of the Athabasca Basin and overburden thickness ranged from 15m to 33m thick with no Athabasca sandstone intersected. Numerous untested graphitic conductive trends remain on the project for drill testing, and additional targets have been generated from the recent VTEM survey that now covers the entire East Preston project lands. The basement rocks intersected comprised amphibolite-grade (high-grade) metamorphic pelitic/mafic to pssamopelitic/felsic gneisses and schists with pegmatitic partial melt segregations. Numerous intervals of blue quartz ‘units’ interpreted as either amphibolite-grade orthoquartzite, or silica-flooded, altered gneissic precursors were also intersected. The gneissic rocks often become highly strained displaying mylonitic to proto-mylonitic textures.

All drill holes intersected at least two intervals of graphitic pelitic gneiss/schist, sufficiently explaining the HLEM and VTEM conductors targeted. In drill holes EP19001 and EP19002, the graphitic rocks intersected were primarily stratigraphic with little associated structural disruption. Drill hole EP19003 intersected moderate to strong structural upgrading within the upper graphitic-pyritic unit encountered. Anomalous radioactivity was observed immediately in the hanging wall upper contact of this graphitic fault interval associated with partial melt pegmatite.

East Preston Uranium Project Initial Drill Pad Locations:

Downhole probe results showed anomalous radioactivity predominantly attributed to thorium related to observed partial melt pegmatitic granite intervals in drill core. Drill core samples collected were submitted to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories in Saskatoon for ICP-MS Total Digest, ICP-MS Partial digest, Boron by fusion and Gold fire assay chemical analysis. Trace element geochemistry shows anomalous results for basement-hosted unconformity uranium deposit pathfinders Ni, Co, Cu, Zn and As associated with graphitic schist intervals. Graphitic rocks hosting uranium mineralization are often associated with Ni-Co-As, Cu and Zn sulphides in anomalous, to substantial quantities. The presence of these pathfinder elements adds additional information and will enhance vectoring towards the most prospective areas of the conductor systems.

Drill Hole Analysis:

EP19001 (Pad B, 094/-45°): PAD B on L2400 targeted the confluence of north and northeast-trending conductors (prospective structure) with a coincident gravity anomaly (potential alteration), and a positive airborne radiometric anomaly (a potential mineralization indicator). This hole successfully intersected graphite-rich intermediate-mafic gneiss and schist units between 105-145m (5-10% graphite), and 157.2-181.9m (2-5% graphite). Both intervals are sandwiched between granitic to granodioritic orthogneiss. Lithology variations and graphite content are significant enough to explain the geophysical conductor targets at this location.  Overall alteration intensity is considered low to moderate. Radiometric anomalies are limited to biotite-rich fractures +-blue quartz or pods within pegmatitic granite subunits. The targeted hole successfully intersected graphite-laden structures/lithologies that are similar in character to host lithologies along the Patterson Lake trend.

EP19002 (Pad E, 105/-45°): PAD E on L1200 targeted a flexure in the HLEM conductor trend and two down hole northwest dipping Maxwell Planes. This site is located 1.5km southwest and on-strike of hole EP19002. Near identical sequence of lithologies as in hole EP19001 with intercepts averaging 40m higher in the hole. Radiometric anomalies are limited to biotite-rich fractures +-blue quartz or pods within pegmatitic granite subunits. Overall more carbonate and less garnet than EP19001. Two graphite rich bands correlate well with projected geophysical conductor traces.

Hole EP19003 (Pad KB, 120/-45°): PAD KB on M600 targeted a flexure in a strong VTEM conductor trend. This site is located 1.0 km north of hole EP19001 along a second parallel conductor feature. This hole intersected graphitic conductive lithologies significantly earlier than the predicted Maxwell-plate predicted depth of 155m, but in league with VTEM predicted conductor traces. Overall lithologic sequence is similar to holes 1 and 2, but overall graphitic content is higher in this hole. The garnet metamorphic overprint is high with low carbonate alteration. The pyrite content is also significantly elevated in the 54-61.5m interval. The highest count of 368 cps occurs at 50.5m depth in a pegmatitic granite immediately adjacent to the first graphitic fault gouge.

Option Agreement:

Skyharbour and Clean Commodities entered into an Option Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Azincourt whereby Azincourt has an earn-in option to acquire a 70% working interest in a portion of the Preston Uranium Project known as the East Preston Property. Under the Agreement, Azincourt has issued common shares and will contribute cash and exploration expenditure consideration totaling up to CAD $3,500,000 in exchange for up to 70% of the applicable property area over three years. Of the $3,500,000 in project consideration, $1,000,000 will be in cash payments to Skyharbour and Clean Commodities, as well as $2,500,000 in exploration expenditures over the three-year period.

About East Preston:

Extensive regional exploration work at East Preston was completed in 2013-14, including airborne electromagnetic (VTEM), magnetic and radiometric surveys. Three prospective conductive, low magnetic signature corridors have been discovered on the property. The three distinct corridors have a total strike length of over 25 km, each with multiple EM conductor trends identified. Ground prospecting and sampling work completed to date has identified outcrop, soil, biogeochemical and radon anomalies, which are key pathfinder elements for unconformity uranium deposit discovery.

Azincourt completed a winter geophysical exploration program in January-February 2018 that generated a significant amount of new drill targets within the previously untested corridors while refining additional targets near previous drilling along the Swoosh corridor. Ground-truthing work confirmed the airborne conductive trends and more accurately located the conductor axes for future drill testing. The gravity survey identified areas along the conductors with a gravity low signature, which is often associated with alteration, fault/structural disruption and potentially, uranium mineralization. The combination/stacking of positive features has assisted in prioritizing targets.

The Main Grid shows multiple long linear conductors with flexural changes in orientation and offset breaks in the vicinity of interpreted fault lineaments – classic targets for basement-hosted unconformity uranium deposits. These are not just simple basement conductors; they are clearly upgraded/enhanced prospectivity targets because of the structural complexity.

The targets are basement-hosted unconformity related uranium deposits similar to NexGen’s Arrow deposit and Cameco’s Eagle Point mine. East Preston is near the southern edge of the western Athabasca Basin, where targets are in a near surface environment without Athabasca sandstone cover – therefore they are relatively shallow targets but can have great depth extent when discovered. The project ground is located along a parallel conductive trend between the PLS-Arrow trend and Cameco’s Centennial deposit (Virgin River-Dufferin Lake trend).

Quality Assurance, Quality Control and Data Verification:

Drill core samples were interval grab samples of interesting lithologies from 0.7m to 2.0m in length, split in half longitudinally, with one-half of the core retained, and the other half placed in sealed bags and shipped to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories (SRC) in Saskatoon, SK for sample preparation, processing and ICP-MS multi-element analysis using Total and Partial digestion, gold by fire assay and boron by fusion. SRC is an ISO/IEC 17025/2005 and Standards Council of Canada certified analytical laboratory. Azincourt’s Qualified Person for the drill program, Mr. Ted O’Connor, has verified the data disclosed, including drilling, sampling and analytical data. The program is designed to include analytical quality assurance and control routines comprising the systematic use of standards, blanks and duplicate samples.

Qualified Person:

The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 and reviewed and approved by Richard Kusmirski, P.Geo., M.Sc., Skyharbour’s Head Technical Advisor and a Qualified Person.

About Skyharbour Resources Ltd.:

Skyharbour holds an extensive portfolio of uranium and thorium exploration projects in Canada’s Athabasca Basin and is well positioned to benefit from improving uranium market fundamentals with six drill-ready projects. Skyharbour has acquired from Denison Mines, a large strategic shareholder of the Company, a 100% interest in the Moore Uranium Project which is located 15 kilometres east of Denison’s Wheeler River project and 39 kilometres south of Cameco’s McArthur River uranium mine. Moore is an advanced stage uranium exploration property with high grade uranium mineralization at the Maverick Zone with drill results returning up to 6.0% U3O8 over 5.9 metres including 20.8% U3O8 over 1.5 metres at a vertical depth of 265 metres. Skyharbour has signed option agreements with Orano Canada Inc. and Azincourt Energy whereby Orano and Azincourt can earn in up to 70% of the Preston Project through a combined $9,800,000 in total exploration expenditures, as well as $1,700,000 in total cash payments and Azincourt shares. Preston is a large, geologically prospective property proximal to Fission Uranium’s Triple R deposit as well as NexGen Energy’s Arrow deposit. The Company also owns a 100% interest in the Falcon Point Uranium Project on the eastern perimeter of the Basin which contains a NI 43-101 inferred resource totaling 7.0 million pounds of U3O8 at 0.03% and 5.3 million pounds of ThO2 at 0.023%. The project also hosts a high-grade surface showing with up to 68% U3O8 in grab samples from a massive pitchblende vein, the source of which has yet to be discovered. The Company’s 100% owned Mann Lake Uranium project on the east side of the Basin is strategically located adjacent to the Mann Lake Joint Venture operated by Cameco, where high-grade uranium mineralization was recently discovered. Skyharbour’s goal is to maximize shareholder value through new mineral discoveries, committed long-term partnerships, and the advancement of exploration projects in geopolitically favourable jurisdictions.

About Marathon
Marathon is a Toronto based gold company rapidly advancing its 100%-owned Valentine Gold Camp located gin Newfoundland and Labrador, one of the top mining jurisdictions in the world. Marathon has confirmed the feasibility of the Valentine Gold Camp, which currently hosts four near-surface, mainly pit-shell constrained, deposits with measured resources totaling 1,166,500 oz. of gold at 2.18 g/t, indicated resources totaling 1,524,900 oz. of gold at 1.66 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 at depth and on strike. Gold mineralization has been traced down almost a kilometer vertically at Marathon and over 350 meters at Leprechaun. 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 an average of 65 to 72% extraction rates for 23 mm (1/2 inch) material via lower cost heap leaching at the Marathon and Leprechaun Deposits respectively.

Cartier Cuts 5.6 g/t Au over 8.5 m in Zone 5M4 at Chimo Mine

Cartier Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ECR) (“Cartier”) reports drill results grading 5.6 g/t Au over 8.5 m including 9.9 g/t Au over 3.0 m and 8.3 g/t Au over 2.5 m.  These intersections are hosted within in a mineralized envelope over 27.8 m grading 2.5 g/t Au in  Zone 5M4 of the Chimo Mine property, located 45 km east of Val-d’Or (FIGURE).

Additional intersections grading 63.1 g/t Au over 0.5 m included within a 27.0 m section grading 2.2 g/t Au as well as an intersection grading 22.3 g/t Au over 1.0 m included within a 26. 0 m section grading 1.7 g/t Au, were also obtained within Zone 5NE. All of these results were intersected at a depth of 700 m in Zones 5M4 and 5NE, are 25 m one from another and located 450 m east of the existing underground infrastructure.

Zones 5M4 and 5NE were drilled over a length of 900 m from the surface to a depth of 700 m. At this depth, both zones were tested, to date, over an east-west orientation width of 75 m. Zones 5M4 and 5NE remain open in all directions (FIGURE).

« These new results, highlight the importance of prioritizing continued exploration of Zones 5M4 and 5NE in order to maximize the potential of drill results previously reported in the main Zones 5B and 5M » commented Philippe Cloutier, President and CEO.

The details of the new results received from the laboratory are as follows:

Included in697.0723.026.01.7

Lengths are expressed along drill core axis.  The true thickness was not determined. The Company is currently building wireframes for the 24 mineralized zones and existing infrastructure of the former Chimo Mine in order to determine the dimensions of each mineralized zone as accurately as possible.

Chimo Mine Project Highlights

  • The Chimo Mine produced 379,012 ounces of gold (MERN DV 85-05 to DV-97-01).
  • Cartier owns 100% interests of the property.
  • Year-round access by road, proximal to 6 custom mills.
  • Gold mineralized material was mined intermittently from 14 zones by 3 different producers.
  • Mine infrastructure consists of a 7 km network of drifts distributed on 19 levels, connected by a 3-compartment shaft 965 m deep. The headframe and surface facilities were dismantled in 2008 but the electrical line and the sand pit are still present.

About Cartier

Cartier Resources was founded in 2006 and is based out of Val-d’Or, Quebec.  Quebec has consistently ranked high as one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world primarily based on its mineral rich geology, attractive tax environment, and pro-mining government.  In 2018, the Fraser Institute again ranked Quebec as one of the best jurisdictions in the world for investment attractiveness.

Cartier Investment Highlights

  • The Corporation has a strong cash position with over $5.5M in the bank and important corporate and institutional investors including Agnico Eagle Mines, JP Morgan UK and the Quebec investment funds.
  • Cartier’s strategy is to focus on gold projects that have an exploration potential for rapid expansion.
  • The Corporation holds a portfolio of exploration projects in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec – one of the most prolific mining regions in the world – the commodity focus is gold.
  • The Corporation is focused on advancing its four key projects through drill programs.  All of these projects were acquired at very reasonable valuations over the past few years.  All of them are drill-ready with targets identified similar to the deposits that have been outlined on each project.
  • Phases I II and III, carried out by Cartier on the Chimo Mine project, consisted of 109 holes for a total of 49,251 m. This work demonstrated the continuity of the main 5B and 5M gold zones beneath the existing mining infrastructures, explored the extensions of 19 gold zones peripheral to the main zones and further explored the extensions of the 7 prioritized gold zones; which led to the discovery of Zone 5NE as well as to expand the potential of Zones 6N1 and 5M4.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

All lengths, mentioned in this press release, were measured along the drill core. The NQ core samples are crushed up to 80% passing 8 mesh sieves and then pulverized up to 90% passing a 200-mesh sieve. Cartier inserts 5% of the number of samples in the form of certified standards and another 5% in the form of sterile samples to ensure quality control. The samples are analyzed at the Techni-Lab laboratory (Actlabs), located in Ste-Germaine-Boulé, Quebec. The 50 g pulps are analyzed by fire assay and atomic absorption. For samples containing visible gold, 1,000 g of rock are directly analyzed by the “Metallic Sieve” method.

The scientific and/or technical information presented in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Gaétan Lavallière, P. Geo., Ph. D. and Vice-President for Cartier Resources.  Mr. Lavallière is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
