Fokus Mining Corporation (TSX-V: FKM) (OTCQB: FKMCF) (FSE: F7E1) is pleased to announce that it intersected gold grading 51.13 g/t Au over 5 metres on the Moriss showing, located in the western part of the Galloway project.



  • Discovery of a new high-grade zone north of the Moriss Zone
  • GA-23-76 intersects 51.13 g/t Au over 5 m, including a 1.5-m section grading 159.16 g/t Au
  • GA-23-77 intersects 18.41 g/t Au over 3 m, including 30.96 g/t Au over 1.5 m.
  • Fokus discovers a new gold zone north of the Hurd Zone.


Last December, the Company drilled five new holes in the Moriss area to evaluate the direction of the gold-bearing veins. At present, it is not possible to determine with certainty the direction of the veins in this area; however, initial interpretations following these results suggest the presence of gold-bearing structures intersecting the Moriss zone perpendicularly.


Of the five holes drilled in a westerly direction, four intersected significant gold values in this sector (see table below).

Since Fokus’ winter 2020-2021 campaign on the Moriss area, there have been a number of unanswered questions regarding the direction of various mineralized zones intersected in this part of the Galloway project. Following an analysis of the data, the Company designed a drilling program to assess the possible presence of a north-south trending gold system intersecting the Moriss shear zone. Based on the results obtained, this appears to be the case.


Jean Rainville, the Company’s President and CEO, explains: “We now believe that gold is present not only in association with the main east-west shear of the Moriss Zone, but that it could also be present with other structures intersecting it in a significant gold-bearing environment. However, further work is required to fully assess the gold potential of Moriss.”


Hurd-Fayolle Zone


The Company also announces that it has intersected several anomalous gold values by drilling in the Fayolle showing area. This area, located some 400 metres north of Hurd, has been little prospected in the past and is associated with significant magnetic anomalies. The two holes were drilled to test their gold potential.


“It is encouraging to have traced by drilling a new potential gold-bearing area associated with significant magnetic anomalies. In order to better define the true grades and thicknesses of the gold zones intersected by these two drill holes, we have asked our consulting geologist to have nearly 300 additional samples analyzed. We should have the results in the next few weeks,” adds Mr. Rainville.


Management is currently preparing a new drilling campaign, which should begin in the next few weeks. Details will be released when all the results of the last campaign are in, but it’s likely that the Moriss zone will be the focus of this new program.
