Gold’n Futures to Acquire Significant Gold & Silver Property in the Renowned Buchans-Roberts Arm Volcanic Belt, Central Newfoundland






Gold’n Futures Mineral Corp. (CSE: FUTR) (FSE: G6M), (OTC: GFTRF) is pleased to report it has signed a letter of intent to acquire up to 75% of the Handcamp Gold & Silver Property located in the Buchans-Roberts Arm Volcanic Belt, Central Newfoundland.


“We are most pleased with the opportunity to acquire such an excellent district scale project – excellent in its geological and geophysical attributes but also in its significant size,” commented Stephen Wilkinson, President and CEO. “The Handcamp Property contains many mineral occurrences hosting gold and silver plus polymetallic volcanogenic sulphide zones. All of the main occurrences are only partially delineated and remain open for the Gold’n Future’s teams to advance.”


Highlights of the Handcamp Property:


  • District-sized mineral project encompassing 16,375 hectares,
  • Comprising the initial 355 mining claims to which 300 claims were added through staking for a contiguous land holding over 32 kilometres of the volcanic belt,
  • Surface grab samples taken in 1989 with gold values ranging up to 74 grams per tonne gold and silver values up to 587 grams per tonne silver
  • Surface grab samples taken in 2011 with gold values up to 82 g/t Au, 94 g/t Au, and 158 g/t Au,
  • Gold zone diamond drill intersections of 6.3 g/t Au and 111.6 g/t Ag over 1.9 metres, including 10.8 g/t Au and 222.4 g/t Ag over 0.9 m within a wider interval grading 3.1 g/t Au and 42.6 g/t Ag over 5.9 m; and,
  • Base metal/sulphide zone drill intersections with assays of up to 2.35% Zn, 1.61% Pb, 0.06% Cu, 13.37 g/t Ag and 2.18 g/t Au over 1.5m.




The Handcamp Property is located in central Newfoundland, 13km south of the town of South Brook and approximately 1km east of the Trans-Canada Highway (Figure One). The Handcamp Property covers much of the northern part of the central Buchans-Roberts Arm belt that is well known as the host of several past producing mining operations including the famous and rich Buchans polymetallic mine located approximately 80 km south west of the Handcamp Property. From 1928 until its closure in 1984 the Buchans mine is reported to have produced 16.2 million tonnes with average grades of 14.51% zinc, 7.65% lead, 1.33% copper, 126 g/t Ag, and 1.37 g/t Au.


Also in the central Buchans-Roberts Arm belt and approximately 2km south of the Handcamp Property boundary, the Gullbridge deposit was discovered in 1905 along the western shore of Great Gull Lake. The Gullbridge deposit went into production in 1967 and operations ceased in 1972. Three million tonnes averaging 1.1% copper had been produced. Zinc, gold and silver were reportedly present in the sulphide mineralization but were not recovered.

The major occurrence at the Handcamp Property is a rusty weathering, structurally bound, linear altered and gossan zone up to 50m wide, mapped for 1.2km along strike and drilled to a vertical depth of up to 190m. The mineralization is hosted within mafic volcanic rocks and associated iron formation. The zone dips steeply to the west. Reportedly, the bulk of the mineralized zone is the intensely altered to quartz‒muscovite (± fuchsite) ‒pyrite‒magnetite. Mineralization consists of pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, minor galena and gold.

Gold’n Futures will have the exclusive right and option to acquire a 75% interest in the Property within the 3-year period by issuing shares to the optionor subject to regulatory approval as follows:

About Gold’n Futures Mineral Corp.


Gold’n Futures Mineral Corp. is a Canadian based exploration company advancing its flagship Hercules Gold Project. The Hercules Gold Project is a well-known high-grade gold project, located 120 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay, Ont., in the townships of Elmhirst and Rickaby, within the Thunder Bay North Mining District in the heart of the Beardmore – Geraldton gold mining camp. The Hercules Gold Project lies within an Archean greenstone belt that extends from the Longlac area in the east to Lake Nipigon in the west, a distance of about 130 kilometres. It comprises 475 contiguous claim cells (10,052 ha) of which 95% of the property is effectively unexplored. To date, the work completed on the Hercules Gold Project forms an extensive database including reconnaissance grab samples; channel samples; a variety of geophysical surveys; and, historical drilling totalling in the order of 537 holes – all of which is being remodeled for planning of the 2021 exploration program. The historical resource estimate (see Cautionary Note) for the Hercules Gold Project was completed in 2010 and comprised an uncapped Indicated Resource of 231,800 tonnes containing 111,450 ounces of gold and an uncapped Inferred Resource of 761,300 tonnes containing 101,050 ounces of gold.


Gold’n Futures’ other advanced gold asset is the Brady Gold Property that consists of an advanced project within a 950 ha claim group in the highly prospective Gander Zone of the central region of Newfoundland. The Brady’s Reid Gold Zone is an intrusion-hosted deposit that is only partially drill-tested and remains open on strike and at depth. The historical resource estimated for Reid Gold Zone in 2011 produced an Inferred Resource of 9,750,000 tonnes hosting 173,000 ounces of gold.
