Canadian Orebodies Discovers a New High-Grade Structure In the Smoke Lake Gold System; Drills 5.4 g/t gold over 10.4m incl. 12.0 g/t gold over 4.3m

 

 

 

 

 

Canadian Orebodies Inc. (TSX-V:CORE) is pleased to announce the results of its drill program to explore the high-grade gold-bearing veins in the Smoke Lake Gold System on the Pic Project (see press release dated February 22, 2019, formerly referred to as the Black Raven property).

 

This drill campaign consisted of 10 holes totaling approximately 1,305 metres, with the majority of the holes drilled off ice pads on Smoke Lake. The results from the program further illustrates that the Smoke Lake Gold System is formed of multiple gold-bearing structures, that high-grade gold mineralization can be found in any of these structures, and that zones of potential thickening could be present in these structures. The results of this drill program also suggest that haloes of lower grade mineralization could be found around the Super G and the other higher-grade veins of the Smoke Lake Gold System.

 

Highlights:

 

  • Discovery of a near-surface high-grade structure in the SLGS – BR-2019-013 contains 5.4 g/t gold over 10.4 metres including 12.0 g/t Au over 4.3m only 17 metres from surface (Figure 1, 2 and Table 1);
  • Hole BR-2019-013 contains 6.4 g/t Au over 2.0 metres, including 15.9 g/t Au over 0.8 metres in the Super G structure of the SLGS;
  • Hole BR-2019-009 intersected 2.1 g/t Au over 8.6 metres including 13.8 g/t Au over 0.8 metres in the Super G structure of the SLGS;
  • Identification of significant zinc enrichment at the contact between volcanic units suggestive of a VMS style system.

“Our winter drill program was successful in demonstrating and reinforcing our theory that the Smoke Lake Gold System is comprised of numerous high-grade gold bearing veins.  The discovery of a high-grade vein in hole BR-2019-013 only 17 metres from surface is very encouraging and highlights the underexplored potential of this emerging gold system,” said Gordon McKinnon, President and CEO of Canadian Orebodies. “Not only was the program successful in the discovery of new veins, it also produced several of the widest core intersections to date in the SLGS, with BR-2019-013 cutting 10.4 metres of 5.4 g/t Au*. The fact that we were able to discover new veins in our last two programs, combined with significant thickening of certain zones seen from this campaign, certainly is an encouraging development for the SLGS.”

 

Smoke Lake Gold System

 

The objectives of the first 2019 drilling program were to test the extension of the Super G structure under Smoke Lake and to better define the mineralized structures of the Smoke Lake Gold System. The winter drill program was successful as the results prove that the Super G vein is one component of a larger gold system in which four gold-bearing structures have been identified. The results of the drill program further demonstrate that high-grade gold mineralization can be found in all the known mineralized structures of the Smoke Lake Gold System, and that near-surface high-grade mineralization can be discovered in the area. Interpretation of the structural measurements of the oriented core indicate that multiple vein orientations can be found in the mineralized structures of the Smoke Lake Gold System. The structural complexity observed near the higher-grade intersections suggests that structural intersections could be favorable targets for high-grade mineralization. The company will further refine this hypothesis during its summer 2019 field program in the Smoke Lake area. Additional drilling will be necessary to establish the continuity of gold mineralization in the different gold-bearing structures that form the Smoke Lake Gold System.

Base metal potential identified in the Smoke Lake Gold System

 

The integration of the multi-element analyses from the 2019 drilling program with the multi-element analyses from the previous drill programs has identified zinc and copper anomalies occur along the contact between the volcanic units in the area. In diamond drill core, the zinc ± copper anomalies occur within zones of silicification and veining with variable sphalerite and accessory chalcopyrite. The location of the base metal anomalies preferentially located at the contact between volcanic units suggests that exhalative periods may have happened between periods of active magmatism and that volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization could have been formed, which could represent additional targets.

 

Analytical methods and Quality Assurance/Quality Control Measures

 

Canadian Orebodies has implemented a quality control program to comply with best practices in the collection and analysis of drill core. 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 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, 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.
