Mayfair Gold Reports 1.85 g/t Gold over 130.5m Including 5.14 g/t Au over 29.2m from Fenn-Gib Drill Program






  • 105,500m of 110,000m Infill and Expansion Drill Program Completed
  • Resource update scheduled for Q2 2023
  • Pre-feasibility Study scheduled for 2023


Mayfair Gold Corp. (TSX-V: MFG; OTCQB: MFGCF) is pleased to announce the ninth set of drill results for 2022 from the Fenn-Gib resource expansion and infill drill program. Mayfair’s 100% controlled Fenn-Gib Project, located in the Timmins region of Northeast Ontario, hosts a NI 43-101 open-pit constrained Indicated Resource of 3.06 million ounces and an Inferred Resource of 0.31M ounces (see the “About Mayfair” section below), with disseminated gold mineralization striking east-west on the Pipestone Fault over more than 1.25 kilometers (km) and up to 300 meters wide at the west end.


Mayfair Gold President and CEO Patrick Evans commented: “The Fenn-Gib 2022 expansion drill program continues to define wide areas of higher-grade gold mineralization within and below the current conceptual open pit. As the end of the current 110,000m drill program approaches, planning is underway for the continuation of the expansion drill program in 2023. The focus will be twofold: first, to continue defining potentially open-pittable gold mineralization in the higher-grade areas on the east side of the deposit; and second, to build on the maiden high-grade underground resource on the west side of the deposit.”


Highlight drill results include:

  1. FG22-272 intersected 1.85 grams per tonne (g/t) Gold (Au) over 130.5m, including 2.70 g/t Au over 83.0m, including 5.14 g/t Au over 29.2m;
  2. FG22-274 intersected 0.71 g/t Au over 162.9m, including 1.09 g/t Au over 37.3m.


The latest drill results continue to intersect significant gold mineralization building on the previously reported Fenn-Gib results, including: hole FG22-253 intersected 1.10 grams per tonne (g/t) Gold (Au) over 366.7m from near-surface, including 4.12 g/t Au over 14.0m and 5.66 g/t Au over 16.0m, hole FG22-267 intersected 1.53 g/t Au over 133.7m, including 3.18 g/t Au over 53.4m (news release December 1, 2022); hole FG22-242 intersected 1.40 g/t Au over 65.0m, including 1.79 g/t Au over 44.6m; FG22-250 intersected 0.87 g/t Au over 311.0m, including 1.08 g/t Au over 57.0m, including 1.10 g/t Au over 99.0m and 1.36 g/t Au over 33.6m and hole FG22-254 intersected 1.12 g/t Au over 102.0m, including 2.66 g/t Au over 25.3m (news release October 13, 2022); hole FG21-148 which intersected 101.0m at a grade of 0.88 g/t Au, including 51.7m at a grade of 1.16 g/t Au; hole FG21-149 intersected 101.9m at a grade of 0.75 g/t Au, including 18.0m at a grade of 1.77 g/t Au; hole FG21-150 intersected 65.5m at a grade of 1.18 g/t Au, including 10.0m at a grade of 4.24 g/t Au (news release July 27, 2021); hole FG21-153 intersected 233.0m at a grade of 1.05 g/t Au, including 84.0m at a grade of 1.83 g/t Au, and also including 25.5m at a grade of 4.70 g/t Au (news release August 17, 2021). FG21-206 intersected 0.93 g/t Au over 134.2m, including 1.31 g/t Au over 78.3m, and hole FG21-213 intersected 1.02 g/t Au over 92.7m (news release May 02, 2022). Hole FG21-190 intersected 0.59 g/t Au over 158.0m, including 1.07 g/t Au over 34.0m, hole FG21-217C intersected 0.77 g/t Au over 184.5m, including 0.98 g/t Au over 62.0m, and including 1.31 g/t Au over 18.8m, and hole FG22-223 intersected 1.21 g/t Au over 112.1m, including 3.04 g/t Au over 31.5m (news release June 08, 2022).

QA/QC Controls


Mayfair Gold (Mayfair) employs a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Surface drilling was conducted by Major/Norex Drilling of Timmins, Ontario and was supervised by the Mayfair exploration team. Mayfair’s drill program includes descriptive logging and sampling of the drill core for analysis at Mayfair’s secure facility located in Matheson, Ontario. Sampled drill core intervals were sawn in half with a diamond blade saw. Half of the sampled core was left in the core box and the remaining half was bagged and sealed. Mayfair utilizes accredited laboratories that include, Activation Laboratories Ltd. (Actlabs) and AGAT Laboratories Ltd. (AGAT) both located in Timmins, Ontario, and Swastika Laboratories Ltd located in Swastika, Ontario. Mayfair personnel transport the samples directly and deliver to Actlabs, and samples are collected by both AGAT and Swastika personnel directly from Mayfair’s secure core logging facility in Matheson, Ontario. Gold was analyzed by 30-gram fire assay with AA-finish. Certified reference material (CRM) standards and coarse blank material are inserted every twenty samples. Mayfair completes routine third-party check assays. Drill intercepts cited do not necessarily represent true widths, unless otherwise noted.

(Source: Garth Kirkham, P. Geo., of Kirkham Geosystems Ltd., who is deemed a qualified person as defined by NI 43-101, dated October 15, 2022). The Fenn-Gib deposit has a strike length of approx. 1.25km with widths ranging up to 300m. The gold mineralized zones remain open at depth and along strike to the east and west. Recently completed metallurgical tests confirm that the Fen-Gib deposit can deliver robust gold recoveries of up to 94%.
