Millennial Intersects 1.26 g/t Oxide Au Over 39.2m and 0.93 g/t Oxide Au Over 41.4m at Wildcat Project

 

 

 

 

 

Millennial Precious Metals Corp. (TSX-V: MPM) (OTCQB: MLPMF) is pleased to provide results from the ongoing Phase 1 drill program currently being conducted at its Wildcat project located in Nevada, USA. The 2022 drill program at Wildcat consists of a minimum of ~2,000m and is primarily designed for infill drilling for mineral resource conversion, geotechnical data for pit wall design, metallurgical data (bottle roll and column test), and to test gold mineralization below the oxidation profile. Phase 1 drilling will support the updated mineral resource and PEA expected to be released following the completion of metallurgical column testing and various mining studies.

 

Highlights:

 

Drillhole WCCD-0003 returned an intercept of 1.26 g/t oxide Au over 39.2m from surface, including a high-grade intercept of 1.82 g/t oxide Au over 20.6m. Drillhole WCCD-0004 returned an intercept of 0.93 g/t oxide Au over 41.4m from surface, including a high-grade intercept of 2.51 g/t oxide Au over 9.2m (refer to Table 1 for detailed interval results).

  • WCCD-0003 and WCCD-0004 were drilled within the 2020 NI 43-101 resource pit with the objective of providing material for metallurgical testing and to confirm the historical drilling grades and continuity. Grades observed met or exceeded the existing block model and historical drilling (refer to Figure 1 and 2 for cross sections).
  • Mineralization in WCCD-0003 is composed primarily of fine oxidized quartz veinlets stockwork demonstrating strong grade continuity within the granodiorite body. The oxidation profile is continuous to a depth of ~40m, consistent with historical drill data.
  • WCCD-0003 is located within the lower topographic part of the pit and presents locally acidic alteration and silicified-breccia intersects which are excellent indicators of the existence of a larger feeder zone within the granodiorite basement.
  • WCCD-0004 targeted the center of the main rhyolitic tuff, the primary ore lithology at Wildcat, with the oxidation profile continuous to a depth of ~42m, consistent with historical drill data.
  • Mineralization in WCCD-0003 and WCCD-0004 demonstrates strong grade continuity, no overburden coverage (extremely low strip ratio), and excellent rock competency for favourable pit slope angles, which are all attractive characteristics for a potential heap leach operation.
  • Primary mineralization controls at Wildcat are hydrothermal vents which have now been identified throughout the property from a recently completed surface mapping campaign. Sampling is currently underway at several target areas outside of the primary pit which have the potential to significantly increase the size of the oxide resource at Wildcat.
  • Excluding the high-grade intercepts, the residual grades of WCCD-0003 and WCCD-0004 are 0.64 g/t Au over 18.6m and 0.48 g/t Au over 32.2m respectively, which are both above the cut-off grade of 0.15 g/t Au (described in the November 2020 NI 43-101 Technical Report for the Wildcat Project available on SEDAR).
  • Material from Phase 1 drilling has been analyzed for initial cyanide solubility which has demonstrated preliminary results of up to ~95% and averaging ~80% within the rhyolitic tuff material. Column testing is currently underway to continue to analyze the metallurgical characteristics of the orebody at Wildcat.

 

Jason Kosec, President, CEO & Director of Millennial stated, “We are extremely pleased with the initial results from Phase 1 drilling at Wildcat. Results from WCCD-0003 and WCCD-0004 demonstrate excellent grade continuity which will support resource conversion in the updated mineral resource and PEA. Initial cyanide solubility results also look very promising and we look forward to the results from column testing. In addition, through surface mapping the team has successfully identified several hydrothermal vents throughout the property at Wildcat which have the potential to materially grow the size of the resource.”

 

Wildcat Project Overview:

 

Wildcat is located within the Farrell mining district in Nevada, 56km north of the town of Lovelock within Pershing County. The property can be accessed by year-round roads from Lovelock via State Route 399 and Seven Troughs Road. The 17,612-acre land package consists of 916 unpatented claims and 4 patented claims. The claims are located on federally owned lands administered by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The mineralization at Wildcat consists of a gold-dominated, low sulphidation, epithermal vein system with oxidized, disseminated sulphide mineralization hosted in volcanic and intrusive rocks. The Inferred mineral resource estimate at Wildcat contains 776,000 ounces of Au (oxide) (60.8 million tonnes at 0.40 g/t Au; effective date of November 18, 2020). A technical report for the Wildcat Project is available on Millennial’s issuer profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
