Treasury Metals Announces Exploration Results at Goldlund and Caracal






Follow up programs on two new exploration targets, Caracal and Goldlund TTG, return positive results.



  •  TTG hole GL-21-108 intersected 3.92 g/t Au over 16.0 metres from 5.2 to 21.2 metres downhole, including 6.72 g/t Au over 1.3 metres from 9.0 to 10.3 metres and including 22.20 g/t Au over 1.6 metres from 19.6 to 21.2 metres downhole;
  •  TTG hole GL-21-107 intersected 0.96 g/t Au over 21.0 metres from 103.0 to 124.0 metres downhole, including 11.60 g/t Au over 1.0 metre from 114.0 to 115.0 metres and 4.47 g/t Au over 1.0 metre from 122.0 to 123.0 metres downhole;
  •  TTG hole GL-21-104 intersected 0.91 g/t Au over 17.4 metres from 64.0 to 81.4 metres downhole, including 8.05 g/t Au over 1.0 metre from 71.0 to 72.0 metres downhole;
  •  Caracal hole CC-22-004 intersected 6.71 g/t Au over 1.0 metre from 146.0 to 147.0 metres downhole; and
  •  Caracal hole CC-22-002 intersected 0.46 g/t Au over 8.5 metres from 125.0 to 133.5 metres downhole


Treasury Metals Inc. (TSX: TML) (OTCQX: TSRMF) is pleased to announce results on two exploration targets from the Goldlund property tested during the 2021 and 2022 drill campaigns. The first program, consisting of seven holes (1,458 metres), was to follow-up on a new target located to the northwest of the Goldlund PEA pit design. Additionally, the Company released four follow-up holes (1,380 metres) from the Wild Cat exploration program testing the continuity of the Caracal target. This target is based on a series of geophysical anomalies on the Goldlund structural trend northeast of the Goldlund deposit and had seen no historical drilling prior to the 2021 campaign.


Jeremy Wyeth, President and CEO of Treasury Metals, commented: “I am very pleased to see additional positive results from these two exploration targets located on the Goldlund Property. We believe that the Goliath and Goldlund properties have significant opportunities for growth through exploration. The TTG is a new target that has intersected high-grade, near-surface mineralization and represents a possible extension of the existing mineral resource on Goldlund due to its proximity to the PEA pit designs. Caracal is a target discovered by the Treasury Metals’ Exploration Team in 2021 which has hit gold mineralization in every hole. This success rate showcases the Geology Team’s ability to identify potential new targets for growth opportunities on our significant property package for future mine-life extension and expansion.”



Results today on the TTG target follow up from hole GL-21-073 that was released on November 03, 2021. Hole GL-21-073 intersected 5.5 m grading 66.56 g/t Au from 22.5 to 28.0 metres downhole, including 0.7 m grading 210.00 g/t Au, 0.8 m grading 78.40 g/t Au and 1.0 m grading 138.00 g/t Au in what was originally considered to be a potential extension of Zone 6 within a different host rock. This initial result was located to the northwest of the PEA pit designs (Figures 1 and 2). The geology team progressed the litho-structural model and planned a follow-up program to test different theories on the control of this step-out hit in hole GL-21-073. Relogging of hole GL-21-073 and detailed logging of the follow-up program GL-21-102 through GL-21-108 showed a coarse-grained intrusive rock hosting mineralization, this unit being a tonalite-trondhjemite-granodiorite or “TTG”. This intrusive appears to be utilizing one of the fault structures that trend northwest across the Goldlund property and typically offset mineralization. Results today are from seven follow-up holes (1,458 metres) testing the TTG unit. Hole GL-21-108 intersected 16.0 m grading 3.92 g/t Au including 1.3 metres grading 6.72 g/t Au and including 1.6 metres grading 22.20 g/t Au, approximately 5 metres vertically below surface (Figure 2). Hole GL-21-107 has several interesting intercepts, particularly at approximately 60 metres vertical depth below surface, where it intersected 21.0 metres grading 0.96 g/t, including 1.0 metre grading 11.60 g/t Au and including 1.0 metre grading 4.47 g/t Au (Figure 2).


Wild Cats – Caracal Target

During the 2021 drill campaign, the Company tested two Wild Cat targets on the Goldlund structural trend northeast of the Goldlund deposit. These targets were based on a series of geophysical anomalies with similar footprints to the Goldlund and Miller Deposits and are located between the two deposits (Figure 3). Results released today are from four follow-up holes (1,380 metres) testing the continuity of the Caracal target over a strike length of approximately 600 metres (Figure 3). From the logging and assay results, the Company believes this area hosts geology and mineralization similar to Zone 1, Zone 7 and Zone 2/3 at the Goldlund Deposit, characterized by the presence of granodiorite dykes and quartz carbonate veining.  The Company had previously released results from the Ocelot and Caracal targets, showing multiple gold occurrences over a 1,200-metre strike length (see press releases dated February 17, 2022 and March 16, 2022 for additional details). Next steps at Caracal will be to step-out on strike from Caracal along the intrusion contact. The team believes the most prospective area will be to the northwest of existing drilling, where a localized deflection in the stratigraphy was identified through an airborne geophysical survey.

Complete gold results from the 2021 and 2022 drill program at Goldlund can be found on the Treasury Metals website.



The Company has implemented a quality assurance and quality control program to ensure sampling and analysis of all exploration work is conducted in accordance with the CIM Exploration Best Practices Guidelines. The drill core is sawn in half with one-half of the core sample dispatched to Activation Laboratories Ltd. facility located in Dryden, Ontario. The other half of the core is retained for future assay verification and/or metallurgical testing. Other QA/QC procedures include the insertion of blanks and Canadian Reference Standards for every tenth sample in the sample stream. A quarter core duplicate is assayed every 20th sample. The laboratory has its own QA/QC protocols running standards and blanks with duplicate samples in each batch stream.  Additional checks are routinely run on anomalous values including gravimetric analysis and pulp metallic screen fire assays. Gold analysis is conducted by lead collection, fire assay with atomic absorption and/or gravimetric finish on a 50-gram sample. Check assays are conducted at a secondary ISO certified laboratory (in this case AGAT Laboratories located in Mississauga, Ontario) following the completion of a program.
