Red Pine Intercepts Significant Mineralization at the Wawa Gold Project, including 3.10 g/t gold over 16.61 m including 40.20 g/t gold over 1.00 m






Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: RPX) (OTCQB: RDEXF) is pleased to announce the most recent assay results from 8 drill holes representing 1,881.40 metres of assayed drill core from the 2022-2024 resource expansion program at the Wawa Gold Project.


Since the resource expansion drilling program began in 2021, and with final compilation of the drilling assay database and geological domaining, an additional 60,000 m of drill core from 177 drill holes, distributed in 47,600 assay samples, will be considered for the upcoming mineral resource update with an effective database cut-off date of June 21, 2024.


In addition, the Company has 5,000 m of drill core distributed in 22 drill holes from the current drill program for which assays are pending and expects additional drilling results to follow over the coming months which will be reported, but not included, in the updated mineral resource estimate.


Drilling Highlights (Tables 1-3, Figures 1-3):

  • 3.10 grams per tonne gold over 16.61 m, including 40.20 g/t gold over 1.00 m in SD-24-520
  • 65.60 g/t gold over 1.12 m and 4.00 g/t gold over 2.20 m, including 7.47 g/t gold over 1.10 m in SD-24-521
  • 2.43 g/t gold over 18.19 m, including 6.15 g/t gold over 1.26 m and 9.70 g/t gold over 2.75 m in SD-24-506
  • 2.02 g/t gold over 8.39 m, including 4.66 g/t gold over 2.40 m in SD-24-508
  • Multiple intersections in the hanging wall of the Jubilee Shear in SD-24-521 that include 0.65 g/t gold over 5.42 m, 0.71 g/t gold over 4.11 m and 0.75 g/t gold over 2.55 m in shear zones and vein networks.


Paul Martin, Interim CEO and Chair of the Board of Red Pine commented: “The latest drill results continue to attest to the existence of significant mineralization in the Jubilee Shear, outside the limits of the former underground mineral resource1. Zones of near surface gold mineralization in the hanging wall of the Jubilee Shear continue to be intersected and are expected to contribute to reducing the stripping ratio under any proposed open pit scenario.”


This news release contains the last assay results that will be considered in the upcoming mineral resource estimation for the Wawa Gold Project. We would like to acknowledge the work of Red Pine’s team in Wawa and of Actlabs for enabling the rapid turnaround of drilling assay results, which allows for the inclusion of an increased number of samples in the accelerated and upcoming mineral resource estimation.”


Discussion of Drill Results


In the Jubilee Shear System, the results of the exploration program indicate:

  • Significant mineralization remains outside the mined areas of the historical Jubilee Mine and in shear zones below the Jubilee Shear
  • Gold mineralization remains opens at depth in the Jubilee Shear down-dip and down-plunge of the existing mineral resource
  • Gold mineralization extends to surface beyond the northern extent of the existing mineral resource


In the hanging wall of the Jubilee Shear, the new results:

  • indicate the presence of sheared vein networks above the Jubilee Shear
  • Extend mineralization in shear zones above the Jubilee Shear


Quality Assurance/Quality Control Measures


Improvements have been added to the Company’s QA/QC protocols under the direction of the recently appointed new Chair of the Technical Committee and the incoming President and Chief Executive Officer.


Drill core samples are transported in security sealed bags for analyses to Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario. Individual samples are labelled, placed in plastic sample bags and sealed. Groups of samples are then placed into durable rice bags and shipped. HQ core assays were obtained 50-gram fire-assaying-AA finish or by 1-kilogram screen fire assay. The 1-kilogram screen assay method is selected for samples anticipated to contain coarse gold and for all the samples with results greater or equal to 2.25 g/t gold for fire-assaying with a AA finish. The residual coarse reject portions of the samples remain in storage for a period if further work or verification is needed.


As part of its updated and independently reviewed QA/QC program, Red Pine inserts external gold standards (low to high grade) and blanks every 20 samples, and routinely insert blanks immediately after samples with visible gold. Quarter core duplicates are routinely inserted to evaluate the natural variability of gold mineralization. Assay certificates are sent to at least two members of the senior management team, and they are directly accessible from the WebLIMS portal of Actlabs.

*Intercepts are calculated using a 0.40 g/t gold cut-off and a maximum of 5 m of internal dilution with no capping applied and are reported over core lengths. True width is estimated to vary between 75 to 95% of the reported core length.
