Tom Larsen and Dr Bill Pearson are very busy men. As CEO and Executive VP Exploration of Eloro Resources Ltd (ELO.V) respectively, these two are riding the tiger of the company’s massive Bolivian silver/tin/zinc/lead deposit at Iska, Iska plus gearing up to drill in Peru. But Larsen took the time to have a quick chat about his other company, Cartier Iron (CFE.CNX). (We’ll be speaking to Dr. Pearson when drill results come in.)
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE:CFE) (“Cartier Iron” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the results of its Controlled Source Audio Magneto-Telluric (“CSAMT”) in the Central Anomaly – Big Easy Showing Area on its 100% owned Big Easy Gold-Silver Project near Clarenville in eastern Newfoundland.
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE:CFE) (“Cartier Iron” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced the planned 10,000m diamond drill program at the Big Easy low sulphidation gold-silver project near Clarenville, Newfoundland. Drilling will initially focus on the Central Anomaly where previous drilling (see press release June 8, 2021) confirmed an extensive zone of silicification up to 200m wide with epithermal gold-silver mineralization. This additional drilling will more fully explore this very prospective zone which extends for at least 600m along strike. Table 1 lists initial planned drill holes and Figure 1 shows the location of the chargeability anomaly with planned drill holes. Drilling is also planned to test the chargeability/resistivity anomalies identified on the Sleigh Pond grid in the southern part of the property as outlined in the press release of June 8, 2021, and as shown in Figure 1. The Sleigh Pond program will likely take place in winter 2022. The drilling program is being managed by Mercator Geological Services with drilling being carried out by Logan Drilling Group.
First Mining Gold Corp. (“First Mining” or the “Company”) (TSX: FF) (OTCQX: FFMGF) (FRANKFURT: FMG) is pleased to announce it has entered into a definitive agreement (the “Agreement”) with Big Ridge Gold Corp. (“Big Ridge”) (TSX-V:BRAU) whereby Big Ridge may earn up to an 80% interest in First Mining’s Hope Brook Gold Project (“Hope Brook” or the “Project”) located in Newfoundland, Canada (the “Transaction”).
- 2,000m diamond drilling program to commence by the end of January to test new IP targets and Central Anomaly on major magnetic trends
- 54.5 line-kilometres of additional IP surveys to be completed on major target area in southern part of claims
TORONTO, Jan. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE: CFE) (“Cartier Iron”), is pleased to announce the start of a 2,000m, 7-hole diamond drill program at the Big Easy Gold Project in Newfoundland to test new Induced Polarization (IP) targets (see press release December 2, 2020) and follow-up drilling on the Central Anomaly where drilling in 2018 intersected a wide alteration zone which returned 0.11gAu/t and 2.65gAg/t over 180.4m (see press release December 18, 2018). Table 1 gives a list of proposed hole locations. An additional 54.5 line-kilometres of IP surveys will also be carried out to follow-up a major new target area outlined in the southern part of the property.
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE: CFE) (“Cartier Iron” or the “Corporation”), is pleased to announce that it is has closed the previously announced (see Cartier Iron news release dated December 15, 2020) non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of 2,500,000 flow-through shares of Cartier Iron at a price of $0.14 per share (“F-T Shares”) for proceeds of $350,000. Each F-T Share was issued on a “flow-through” basis under the Income Tax Act (Canada). Insiders of Cartier Iron subscribed for 714,287 F-T Shares in the Private Placement.

- 2,000m diamond drilling program planned to start in mid-January 2021 to test Central Anomaly and new IP targets.
- Two major magnetic trends outlined, West and East Trends, 19km and 20km long, respectively, each with a number of elongated magnetic highs that likely reflect intrusive rocks not previously recognized in this area.
TORONTO, Dec. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE: CFE) (“Cartier Iron”), is pleased to report on results of geophysical surveys completed during October, 2020, at its Big Easy Gold project located on the Burin Peninsula in eastern Newfoundland. A helicopter-borne magnetic survey was flown for New Sense Geophysics Ltd. of Markham, Ontario by Newfoundland Helicopters over the southern half of the property to provide high-resolution magnetic coverage over the complete Big Easy property. The northern half of the property was flown by previous operators and is available in the NL Department of Natural Resources assessment files. The program also included induced polarization/resistivity (IP/Res) surveys on a grid located 2.5km south of the ET showing. This program was designed to follow-up the 20km long target zone for epithermal gold-silver mineralization outlined by the summer 2020 program of geological mapping, soil sampling and prospecting (see press release September 29, 2020) to outline potential drill targets.
Cartier Iron Corporation (CSE: CFE) (“Cartier Iron”), is pleased to report on results of a geological mapping, soil sampling and prospecting program completed during July, 2020, at its Big Easy Gold project (see press release July 8, 2020), located on the Burin Peninsula in eastern Newfoundland. The program focused on follow-up of major target areas outlined by magnetic and induced polarization/resistivity (IP/Res) surveys as well as exploration of the potential southern extension of these chargeability zones which have had only limited previous work.
Marathon Gold Corporation (“Marathon” or the “Company”) (TSX: MOZ) is pleased to report an additional tranche of consistent and positive results from the ongoing infill drilling campaign at the Marathon Deposit, part of the Valentine Gold Project in central Newfoundland. The new drilling continues to delineate significant new zones of Quartz-Tourmaline-Pyrite-Gold (“QTP-Au”) veining in areas of limited previous drilling within the southwestern area of the planned Marathon open pit (Figures 2 and 3). Highlights of the latest drilling include:
