ValOre Drills 53 m at 1.18 g/t 2PGE+Au from Surface at Cedro PGE Deposit

 

 

 

 

Assays from metallurgical drilling confirm historical results

 

 

ValOre Metals Corp. (TSX‐V: VO) (OTC: KVLQF) (Frankfurt: KEQ0) provided an update on metallurgical testwork program at ValOre’s 100%-owned Pedra Branca Platinum Group Elements Project in northeastern Brazil.

 

“Confirmatory drilling results from Cedro returned broad, well mineralized palladium-platinum intercepts from surface, and down-dip at depth,” stated ValOre’s VP of Exploration, Colin Smith. “ValOre’s team has commenced selecting a composite sample for Cedro, to be included in the on-going testwork program at ALS Metallurgy Kamloops. Preliminary results from testwork performed on the Cuiru deposit are expected next month.”

 

Key Points on Metallurgical Testwork Program:

  • Four HQ-size core drill holes totaling 332 metres at the Cedro PGE deposit area were drilled, logged, sampled and assayed to support ongoing metallurgical testwork;
  • All 4 drill holes confirmed the historically reported geology and returned broad, consistently mineralized PGE intercepts including:
    • 53 m at 1.18 grams per tonne palladium + platinum + gold (“g/t 2PGE+Au”) from surface, incl. 7.0 m at 2.64 g/t 2PGE+Au from 44 m in drill hole DD21CD24A
    • 62 m at 0.90 g/t 2PGE+Au from 58 m, incl. 31 m at 1.40 g/t 2PGE+Au from 82 m in drill hole DD21CD05A
    • 52 m at 1.03 g/t 2PGE+Au from 19 m in drill hole DD21CD89A
    • 70 m at 0.71 g/t 2PGE+Au from surface, incl. 29 m at 1.12 g/t 2PGE+Au in drill hole DD21CD42A;
  • Metallurgical drilling campaign concluded, totaling 922 m in 14 holes, including 6 holes at Esbarro (378 m), and 4 holes at Curiu (213 m), in addition to the 332 m in 4 holes at Cedro;
  • Drill core for the remaining two PGE deposits which form part of the 2019 inferred resource, Trapia and Santo Amaro, will be collected from the 2020 and 2021 resource expansion drill programs;
  • Testwork program at ALS Metallurgy Kamloops (“ALS”) commenced in November 2021, with a primary focus on mineralogy and conventional processing circuits, and preliminary results expected in February 2022.

2021 Metallurgical Drill Program

 

Four HQ-size core drill holes (totaling 332 m) were completed at the Cedro deposit (151,000 ounces 2PGE+Au contained in an inferred resource of 4.2 million tonnes grading 1.10 g/t 2PGE+Au) to provide PGE mineralized material for ongoing metallurgical testwork. In addition, 6 holes (378 m) were drilled into the Esbarro deposit (394,000 oz 2PGE+Au in 9.9 Mt grading 1.23 g/t 2PGE+Au), and 4 holes (213 m) were drilled into the Curiu deposit (100,000 oz 2PGE+Au in 1.6 Mt grading 1.93 g/t 2PGE+Au). CLICK HERE for news release dated October 4, 2021, for assay results from the Esbarro and Curiu drill program.

 

All drill holes confirmed the historically reported mineralized ultramafic  intrusion and returned broad, consistently mineralized 2PGE+Au intercepts, originating at surface and at depth, down dip. See Table 1 and 2 below for a complete table of Cedro drill core assays and Figure 1 for a map of the metallurgical drill hole locations at Cedro.

The Pedra Branca PGE Project comprises 51 exploration licenses covering a total area of 55,984 hectares (138,339 acres) in northeastern Brazil. At Pedra Branca, 5 distinct PGE+Au deposit areas host, in aggregate, a current Inferred Resource of 1,067,000 ounces 2PGE+Au contained in 27.2 million tonnes grading 1.22 g/t 2PGE+Au (CLICK HERE for ValOre’s July 23, 2019 news release). All the currently known Pedra Branca inferred PGE resources are potentially open pittable.

 

Comprehensive exploration programs have demonstrated the “District Scale” potential of ValOre’s Angilak Property in Nunavut Territory, Canada that hosts the Lac 50 Trend having a current Inferred Resource of 2,831,000 tonnes grading 0.69% U3O8, totaling 43.3 million pounds U3O8. For disclosure related to the inferred resource for the Lac 50 Trend uranium deposits, please CLICK HERE for ValOre’s news release dated March 1, 2013.

 

ValOre’s team has forged strong relationships with sophisticated resource sector investors and partner Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI) on both the Angilak and Baffin Gold Properties. ValOre was the first company to sign a comprehensive agreement to explore for uranium on Inuit Owned Lands in Nunavut Territory and is committed to building shareholder value while adhering to high levels of environmental and safety standards and proactive local community engagement.
