Montreal, February 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Troilus Gold Corp. (TSX: TLG) (OTCQX: CHXMF) (“Troilus” or “Company”) is one of the best metallurgical recovery results in the J-Zone. I am happy to be able to report as a department. A wholly owned Troilus project in central and northern Quebec, Canada, conducted an ongoing pilot plant-scale metallurgical test program for each of the major mineral deposits. Last year, three composite samples (approximately 3 tonnes (3,000 kg) each) from three major mineral zones (Z87, J-Zone, Southwest Zone) in Erie, Pennsylvania, were used to verify gold recovery. It was sent to a metallurgical testing facility. Copper and silver using standard gravity and column flotation techniques (see Figure 1). Southwest Zone and Z87 Zone tests are currently in final stages, but are powerful from J-Zone Composites, which achieved 92.9%, 90.4%, and 88.8% gold, copper, and silver recovery in Knelson’s gravity separation and column flotation tests. I received the final result. Each. The results of the test program will be used to support future pre-feasibility studies and future economic studies.
J-Zone Test Program and Result Highlights:
- Approximately 3 tonnes (3,000 kg) composite of mineralized material from J-Zone prepared using coarse assay rejects from 1,358 hole spacing to accurately replicate the various domains throughout the Mineralization Zone. Samples provided to Eriez for testing
- The combination of Knelson separation and rough scavenger cleaner column flotation achieved an overall gold recovery of 92.9%, copper recovery of 90.4% and silver recovery of 88.8%.
- These results exceed the recovery rates used in the preliminary economic assessment (see press release dated August 20, 2020). Gold recovery was 90% (gravity and flotation combined), copper was 90%, and silver was 40%.
Justin Reid, President, CEO and Director of Troilus Gold, commented: Obtained from PEA, it shows better results than silver expected. Based on previous metallurgical testing work, we are confident that recovery rates in the Z87 and southwest zone will meet or exceed the results announced today and how these can increase the economic potential of the project. I am looking forward to it. We will move forward toward the completion of the preliminary feasibility study. “
J-Zone composite sample configuration
The approximately 3,000 kg J-Zone composite sample uses coarse assay rejects from 1,358 intervals obtained from 13 different regions of the sediment to accurately replicate the composition of the entire mineralization zone based on different domains. Was prepared. In Figure 2, the isometric view of the J-Zone shows sample locations for different domains.

About Troilus Gold Corp.
Troilus Gold Corp. is a Canadian-based junior mining company focused on systematic progress and risk mitigation towards the production of the former gold and copper Troilus Mine. From 1996 to 2010, the Troilus mine produced +2 million ounces of gold and about 70,000 tonnes of copper. Troilus is located in Quebec, Canada’s most acclaimed mining jurisdiction and owns 1,420 km² of strategic land on the Frôtet-Evans Greenstone Belt. Since the acquisition of the project in 2017, the success of continuous exploration has demonstrated the tremendous potential of the gold system in real estate with significantly increased mineral resources. We are proceeding with engineering research after the completion of a strong PEA in 2020. This shows that the Troilus project has the potential to become Canada’s top-ranked gold and copper production asset. Headed by an experienced team with a proven track record of successful mine development, Troilus is in a position to become a foundational project in North America.

Precautions regarding forward-looking statements and information
Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves have not demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resource estimates in the updated Mineral Resources Statement can be seriously affected by environmental, permit, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing, or other related issues.There is no certainty
It is uncertain whether the mineral resources shown will be converted to the estimated mineral reserves category and the updated mineral resource statement will be realized.
PEA is realized by including estimated mineral resources that are considered preliminary in nature and are considered too geologically speculative and cannot be classified as mineral reserves with economic considerations applied. I’m not sure if it will be done. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves have not demonstrated economic viability. PEA carries many risks and uncertainties. For more information on the key assumptions, parameters, methods, and risk of decisions related to the above, please see below and our latest technical report available at SEDAR.
