Titan Announces Significant High Grade Drill Extensions to ESM Open Pit Project

 

 

 

 

 

Titan Mining Corporation (TSX:TI) is pleased to provide an update on near mine drilling recently completed at its 100%-owned Empire State Mine in New York State revealing significant mineralized extensions of the #2 Ore Body, which has accounted for approximately half of the tons mined historically at ESM. Results include assays from drilling completed in West Ridge, the historic #2 Pit Area, Turnpike and Pump House. Each of these targets represents near surface extensions of the #2 Ore Body.

 

Drilling Highlights

 

Key Mineralized intervals from West Ridge include:

  • 6.5 feet (2 meters) assaying 14.1% zinc, 1.9% lead, and 30.7 g/t silver
  • 101 feet (30.7 meters) assaying 4.1% zinc, 0.8% lead, and 12.2 g/t silver
    • Including 8.3 feet (2.5 meters) assaying 9.7% zinc, 3.9% lead, and 29.7 g/t silver
  • 118 feet (36.2 meters) assaying 7.1% zinc, 0.6% lead, and 8 g/t silver
    • Including 19.6 feet (6 meters) assaying 15.3% zinc, and 5 g/t silver; and

Key Mineralized intervals from the historic #2 Pit Area include:

  • 114.7 feet (34.9 meters) assaying 6.1% zinc, 0.9% lead, and 9.7 g/t silver.
    • Including 16.7 feet (5.1 meters) assaying 12.5% zinc, 3.1% lead, and 23.9 g/t silver; and
    • 13.3 feet (4 meters) assaying 17.6% zinc, 1.5% lead, and 17 g/t silver
  • 48.4 feet (14.8 meters) assaying 7.5% zinc, 1.8% lead, and 20.4 g/t silver
    • Including 24 feet (7.3 meters) assaying 10.9% zinc, 2.7% lead, and 31.5 g/t silver
  • 38.9 feet (11.8 meters) assaying at 7.4% zinc, 2.0% lead, and 16.8 g/t silver
    • Including 15.7 feet (4.8 meters) assaying at 16.5% zinc, 4.4% lead, and 35.3 g/t silver

Key Mineralized intervals from Pumphouse include:

  • 32.3 feet (9.8 meters) assaying 14.8% zinc, 0.8% lead, and 18.2 g/t silver

 

A full listing of the drill results can be found in Tables I, II, III and IV below. Drill hole coordinates are set out in Table V.

 

2022 ESM Open Pit – Surface Drilling

 

In Q1 2022 a 27 hole drill program was completed in and around the #2 Ore Body. This drilling has successfully extended mineralization to the SW of the Hoist House Zone and identified a new zone of mineralization labeled West Ridge (see Figures 1 and 2). Eight holes have been completed within the historic #2 pit, targeting the remnant crown pillar, returning positive results and extending the previously drilled zinc mineralization in this area. Additionally, two holes have been drilled targeting the down dip extension of mineralization at the planned Turnpike open pit.

 

ESM General Manager Joel Rheault commented, “The most recent drill results provide encouragement that the areas targeted for open pit mining are going to be larger and higher grade than originally anticipated, which will extend the project life. Additionally, the down dip extensions of this mineralization may provide targeted areas for underground extraction. Overall, the project will lead to additional employment at ESM and incrementally increase the number of payable zinc pounds produced.”

* Based on historic models and neighboring drillholes, the technical team believes SX22-2605 may have tested the remnants of a historic pillar.

 

Note: The true width of the mineralization is not currently known.

 

The #2 pit is located 1 mile south of the ESM # 4 mine and milling complex. Drilling has tested remnant crown pillar mineralization to the southwest of the previously identified Hoist House Zone (Figures 1-2) and the remnant mineralization beneath the #2 Pit. Mineralization has been intercepted within the gaps of the historic #2 surface and underground workings.

Qualified Person

 

The scientific and technical information contained in this news release and the sampling, analytical and test data underlying the scientific and technical information has been reviewed, verified and approved by Donald R. Taylor, MSc., PG, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, a qualified person for the purposes of NI 43-101. Mr. Taylor has more than 25 years of mineral exploration and mining experience and is a Registered Professional Geologist through the SME (registered member #4029597). The data was verified using data validation and quality assurance procedures under high industry standards.

 

Assays and Quality Assurance/Quality Control

 

To ensure reliable sample results, the Company has a rigorous QA/QC program in place that monitors the chain-of-custody of samples and includes the insertion of blanks and certified reference standards at statistically derived intervals within each batch of samples. Core is photographed and split in half with one-half retained in a secured facility for verification purposes.

 

Sample preparation (crushing and pulverizing) has been performed at ALS Geochemistry an independent ISO/IEC accredited lab located in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. ALS prepares a pulp of all samples and sends the pulps to their analytical laboratory in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, for analysis. ALS analyzes the pulp sample by an aqua regia digestion (ME-ICP41 for 35 elements) with an ICP – AES finish including Cu (copper), Pb (lead), and Zn (zinc). All samples in which Cu (copper), Pb (lead), or Zn (zinc) are greater than 10,000 ppm are re-run using aqua regia digestion (Cu-OG46; Pb-OG46; and Zn-OG46) with the elements reported in percentage (%). Silver values are determined by an aqua regia digestion with an ICP-AES finish (ME-ICP41) with all samples with silver values greater than 100 ppm repeated using an aqua regia digestion overlimit method (Ag-OG46) calibrated for higher levels of silver contained. Gold values are determined by a 30 g fire assay with an ICP-AES finish (Au-ICP21).

 

The Company has not identified any drilling, sampling, recovery, or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data set out in this news release.
