Scorpio Gold’s Phase II drilling program suffers critical interception, The Canadian Business Journal

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, October 6, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Scorpio Gold Corporation (“Scorpio Gold” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SGN) announces the latest significant milestone in Phase II Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling. We are pleased to announce the interception. Program at the Goldwedge facility in Manhattan, Nevada.

The planned program consisted of 59 RC boreholes totaling 10,800 meters (10,800 meters), with a total of 3,935 meters (3935) meters completed to date. The drill holes for this latest update show (1) the continuity of mineralization in the northeastern part of Mustang Hill near the east-west strike, (2) the potential continuity of the down-dipping direction of the Reliance fault zone, and (3 ) for the southeast and southwest mineralization continuity. “Main Trend” through West Pit.

A total of 20 RC drill holes have been completed to date, representing 36% (3935 meters) of the planned RC drilling program. However, a May 2022 press release reported 12 boreholes showing very high grade mineralization northwest of West Pit. Figure 1 Below are the locations of all remaining boreholes that have been completed in the Phase II drilling program to date.

Figure 1: Top view showing completed (red dots) and remaining (blue dots) colored drill hole locations for the Phase II drilling program.

Drilling confirmed strong mineralization trends with significant interruptions in the northeastern (Mustang Hill area) and southwestern sections (Crescent Trend area) of the West Pit (see Figure 2 below). Here are some key intercept highlights:

  • MWRC22-014 – intercepted 3.53g/t at 7.6m including 14.58g/t at 79.3m to 1.5m along the depth of the drill hole.Additional intercepts include 4.03g/t from 16.8m to 3.1m Depth along the drill hole.
  • MWRC22-018 – intercepted including 4.90g/t over 22.9m, 38.76g/t over 1.5m and 5.19g/t over 9.2m, 20.17g/t over 1.5m There is mineralization from 62.5m and 112.9m respectively along the direction of the borehole dip.
  • MWRC22-021 – intercepted 3.89g/t from 24.4m to 41.2m Along the slant direction of the drill hole.Additional intercepts include 1.75g/t from 266.9m to 13.7m Depth along the drill hole.

Results details for all completed drill holes reported in table 1 a place depicted in Figure 2 under.

NOTE: All holes shown in Table 1 were completed by reverse circulation (RC) drilling. Width is displayed as downhole core length. No true width is defined at this time. Analytical results are not ISO/IEC 17025 accredited, but have implemented a quality management system compatible with the ISO/IEC 17025 standard for future ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation. Duplicate samples were taken on the drill rig. Samples with significant results above 0.020oz/t are available for external laboratory confirmation. Details of our quality assurance and quality control program for Goldwedge projects are available at GW QAQC.

Gold mineralization in the NE section of the West Pit (Mustang Hill area) is predominantly single-crystal quartz stockworks in Gold Hill quartzite ± phyllite with interspersed pyrite ± chalcopyrite and occasional association with iron oxide staining. and within the botroid-like “vein”. MWRC22-018 and MWRC22-021, drilled in this region, interrupted a broad mineralized zone that exhibits features similar to the ‘west pit main trend’ (see Figure 2). The predominant mineralization trend within the West Pit occurs in coatings on fracture surfaces, predominantly drusian quartz-adularia veins dominated by Fe-stained pyrite within the Gold Hill quartzite ± phyllite unit. MWRC22-018 is also planned to interrupt the descending continuity of the Reliance fault zone, returning with a broad mineralization interruption ([email protected]/t; [email protected]/t) within the fault structure (shear zone). In general, this zone consists of crushed rock and gouge material along the fault plane, usually on crusted and/or tight knife-edge slip planes, with abundant argillaceous clays within the zone. Associated. Cross-sections showing key sections of the borehole within the Mustang Hill and Reliance fault zones are shown in Figure 1. Figure 3 When Figure 4 under.

MWRC22-014 formed a parallel structure and intercepted a significant mineralized zone that appears to lie northwest of the “Main West Pit Trend” (Figure 2). Mineralization is likely to continue in the northwest and southeast strike directions, following the same trends as the previous holes drilled in the strike direction (MWRC21-003 and 004). Northwest of the West Pit will be explored to investigate whether the mineralization consists of a similar Quartz Adularia style or other types of mineralization.
