Wallbridge Continues to Report Wide Intersections from Definition Drilling at Fenelon

 

 

 

 

 

Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX:WMis pleased to announce new results from its definition drill program at the Fenelon Gold Property, with strong gold intersections that continue to confirm the grade and geometry of the central portions of the Tabasco-Cayenne and Area 51 Zones, in support of the maiden mineral resource estimate planned for Q3 2021.

 

Fenelon Gold System, Tabasco-Cayenne Definition Drill Results

 

Highlight intersections from the definition drilling in the Tabasco-Cayenne Zones include:

 

  FA-20-134-W2 3.61 g/t Au over 63.90 metres in the Tabasco Zones, including
      6.00 g/t Au over 4.10 metres, and
      6.87 g/t Au over 16.75 metres in the Area 51 to Tabasco transition, and
      7.24 g/t Au over 12.10 metres in the Tabasco Zone;
    5.42 g/t Au over 5.85 metres in the Cayenne Zone (see Figs. 1 and 4);
  FA-20-134-W1 25.66 g/t Au over 3.90 metres in the Tabasco Zone (see Figs. 1 and 3);
  FA-20-190 3.58 g/t Au over 28.15 metres, including
      6.49 g/t Au over 6.55 metres in the Tabasco Zone;
    7.39 g/t Au over 5.90 metres in the Cayenne Zone (see Figs. 1 and 5);
  FA-19-094-W1 6.88 g/t Au over 6.75 metres in the Cayenne Zone (see Fig. 6);

 

“Definition drilling in the central portions of the known Fenelon Gold System (sections 9900E to 10250E) consistently shows good predictability of the zones and provides the tighter spaced information required for the upcoming maiden mineral resource estimate,” stated Attila Péntek, Vice President Exploration of Wallbridge. “Definition drilling to date in the Tabasco/Cayenne zones has demonstrated tens of metres wide shear zones with variable grades made up of high-grade domains (6 to 40 grams per tonne), mid-grade domains (3 to 6 grams per tonne) and low-grade domains (1 to 3 grams per tonne). What differentiates the Tabasco/Cayenne shear zones are their exceptional thicknesses measured in tens of metres in most areas, making the average grade of the zones suitable for a bulk mineable resource”.

 

The results of the definition drilling program presented in this release continue to outline the high metal factor (grade multiplied by core length) domain of the Tabasco-Cayenne Zones, which forms part of the larger gold mineralized corridor and has thus far been drilled over a strike length of 800 metres to a vertical depth of 1,000 metres.

 

Fenelon Gold System, Area 51 Definition Drill Results

 

As the holes approach Tabasco-Cayenne, they also transect the Area 51 gold vein network, thereby allowing information from all of these zones to be considered when computing the maiden 2021 mineral resource estimate.

 

Highlight intersections from Area 51 from the holes reported today include:

 

  FA-19-094-W2 3.77 g/t Au over 12.60 metres in the Interstellar Zone, included within a large mineralized envelope of 1.04 g/t Au over 166.00 metres (see Fig. 6);
  FA-19-094-W3 4.68 g/t Au over 12.20 metres in the Andromeda Zone, and
    4.11 g/t Au over 7.60 metres in the Interstellar Zone, included within a large mineralized envelope of 1.02 g/t Au over 179.35 metres (see Fig. 6);
  FA-20-148-W1 2.04 g/t Au over 23.50 metres in the Andromeda Zones (see Fig. 7);
  FA-20-148-W1-W1 3.10 g/t Au over 10.90 metres in the Andromeda Zones, included within a large mineralized envelope of 1.51 g/t Au over 49.00 metres (see Fig. 7);
  FA-20-148-W1-W1-W1 5.46 g/t Au over 3.00 metres in the Andromeda Zones, included within a large mineralized envelope of 1.08 g/t Au over 44.50 metres, as well as
    3.03 g/t Au over 9.45 metres, and
    11.83 g/t Au over 2.00 metres in the Interstellar Zone (see Fig. 7).

 

2021 Drilling Program Update

 

In 2021, the Company is planning to complete approximately 170,000 metres of drilling with a maiden mineral resource estimate at Fenelon anticipated in the third quarter (see Wallbridge Press Release dated January 11, 2021). Approximately 10-15% of the drilling program will be devoted to regional exploration on the Company’s district-scale, underexplored land package on the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend.

 

Currently, the Company has eight drill rigs operating at Fenelon and is planning to add a ninth rig this week. In the coming months, seven drill rigs will be targeting the Fenelon Gold System (Tabasco-Cayenne-Area 51 mineralization) to approximately 1,000 metre vertical depth, carrying out a combination of definition and expansion drilling at a nominal 75-metre drill spacing. Two drill rigs have been focusing on near-surface, open pit resource drilling in the western portion of Area 51. Additional drills will be devoted to regional, grassroots exploration at various projects on the Company’s 900 km2 Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend land package later in the year.

 

Assay results of eleven drill holes and wedge cuts of the 2020/2021 exploration drill program are reported in the Tables and Figures below. All figures and a table with drill hole information of recently completed holes are posted on the Company’s website under “Current Program” at https://www.wallbridgemining.com/s/fenelon.asp.

Assay QA/QC and Qualified Persons

 

Drill core samples from the ongoing drill program at Fenelon are cut and bagged either on site or by contractors and transported to either SGS Canada Inc. or ALS Canada Ltd. for analysis. Samples, along with standards, blanks and duplicates included for quality assurance and quality control, were prepared and analyzed at SGS Canada Inc. or ALS Canada Ltd. laboratories. Samples are crushed to 90% or 95% less than 2mm. A 1kg riffle split is pulverized to >95% passing 106 microns or 85% passing 75 microns. 50g samples are analyzed by fire assay and AAS. At SGS, samples >10g/t Au are automatically analyzed by fire assay with gravimetric finish or screen metallic analysis. To test for coarse free gold and for additional quality assurance and quality control, Wallbridge requests screen metallic analysis for samples containing visible gold. These and future assay results may vary from time to time due to re-analysis for quality assurance and quality control.

 

The Qualified Person responsible for the technical content of this press release is Christopher Kelly, P.Geo., Senior Geologist of Wallbridge.

 

About Wallbridge Mining

 

Wallbridge is currently advancing the exploration and development of its 100%-owned Fenelon Gold property, which is located along the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend, an emerging gold belt in northwestern Québec. The Company completed approximately 102,000 metres of drilling in 2020 and has begun a fully-funded 170,000-metre drill program and the 2021 portion (4,800 metres) of a 10,000-metre, two-year underground exploration development program in 2021. The Company intends to complete a maiden mineral resource on the Fenelon Gold System in the third quarter of 2021.

 

Wallbridge now holds several kilometres surrounding its rapidly expanding Fenelon discovery providing room for growth, as well as future mine development flexibility. Wallbridge’s land holdings in Québec along the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend are over 900.0 km2, improving Wallbridge’s potential for further discoveries for over 90-kilometre strike length in this under-explored belt.

 

Wallbridge is also the operator of, and a 17.8% shareholder in, Lonmin Canada Inc., a privately-held company with a portfolio of nickel, copper, and platinum-group metals (PGM) projects in Ontario’s Sudbury Basin.
