Wallbridge Mining Company Limited is pleased to report continuing positive drill results from Area 51 on Wallbridge’s 100%-owned Fenelon Gold Property (“Fenelon” or the “Property”). Results of the 75-metre step-out drilling have further extended the Area 51 gold zones to the west and southeast, while in-fill drilling in Area 51 continues to define the distribution of gold mineralization consisting of numerous narrow, high grade veins within vein network zones tens of metres in width.
“Our systematic step-out drilling is now revealing strong Area 51-style mineralization continuing to the west on the new drill section 9750E,” said Attila Péntek, Vice President, Exploration of Wallbridge. “The mineralization is wide open to the west towards the intersection in FA-20-160 approximately 400 metres away. Similarly, the intersection of the newly discovered Hubble zone on section 10425E provides continuity in the southeast and a possible connection to the Area 51 mineralization recently discovered all the way to the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone.”
Assay QA/QC and Qualified Persons
Drill core samples from the ongoing drill program at Fenelon are cut and bagged either on site or by contractors and transported to either SGS Canada Inc. or ALS Canada Ltd. for analysis. Samples, along with standards, blanks and duplicates included for quality assurance and quality control, were prepared and analyzed at SGS Canada Inc. or ALS Canada Ltd. laboratories. Samples are crushed to 90% or 95% less than 2mm. A 1kg riffle split is pulverized to >95% passing 106 microns or 85% passing 75 microns. 50g samples are analyzed by fire assay and AAS. At SGS, samples >10g/t Au are automatically analyzed by fire assay with gravimetric finish or screen metallic analysis. To test for coarse free gold and for additional quality assurance and quality control, Wallbridge requests screen metallic analysis for samples containing visible gold. These and future assay results may vary from time to time due to re-analysis for quality assurance and quality control.
The Qualified Person responsible for the technical content of this press release is Christopher Kelly, P.Geo., B.Sc., Project Geologist of Wallbridge.
About Wallbridge Mining
Wallbridge is currently advancing the exploration and development of its 100%-owned Fenelon Gold property, which is located along the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend, an emerging gold belt in northwestern Québec with an ongoing, fully-funded 100,000-metre exploration drill program in 2020.
The recent acquisition of Balmoral Resources has secured for Wallbridge a buffer of several kilometres surrounding its rapidly expanding Fenelon discovery providing room for growth, as well as future mine development flexibility. This acquisition has also significantly expanded Wallbridge’s land holdings in Québec along the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend (from 10.5 km2 to over 900.0 km2), improving Wallbridge’s potential for further discoveries for over 90-kilometre strike in this under-explored belt.
Wallbridge is also the operator of, and a shareholder in, Lonmin Canada Inc., a privately-held company with a large portfolio of nickel, copper, and platinum-group metals (PGM) projects in Ontario’s Sudbury Basin.
