New Placer Dome Gold Corp. Announces Bolo Gold-Silver Project 2020 Discovery Drill Program

Vancouver, British Columbia – June 29, 2020: New Placer Dome Gold Corp. (“New Placer Dome” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: NGLD, FSE: BM5) is pleased to announce plans for its 2020 Bolo Gold Project (“Bolo”) reverse circulation (RC) discovery drill program as follow-up to its highly successful 2019 exploration campaign at Bolo comprising 10 holes totaling 1,838 metres (m), and 10.2 line-km induced polarization (IP) / resistivity survey. The 2019 drill program yielded long gold-oxide intercepts from surface and generated the discovery of new zones including anomalous silver values. The new drill plan has the potential to generate a significant mineralized area as a path towards a future mineral resource estimate.  

For 2020 New Placer Dome has planned an initial 12 high-priority RC drill holes at Bolo totaling approximately 3,500 m targeting the Mine Fault and other mineralized structures that host the South Mine Fault, Uncle Sam, and Northern Extension mineralized gold zones (Figure 1).

Drilling at Bolo will focus on testing Carlin-style gold mineralization at depth in the South Mine Fault Zone where gold-silver mineralization remains open and untested along strike and at depth. The 2020 program will expand and step-out on results from the 2019 program (see New Placer Dome news release dated November 7, 2019) including:

  • 84 metres of 1.37 g/t gold in hole BL19-011, and
  • 122 metres of 1.2 g/t gold in hole BL19-04[1],
  • New discovery of 12.2 metres of 3.32 g/t gold in hole BL19-04[2]

The 2020 program will also test the continuity of mineralization between the South Mine Fault Zone and Uncle Sam Silver Zone, where a 2019 outcrop sample yielded 3.63 g/t gold with 262 g/t silver.

The combined 2019 and historical RC drilling at Bolo defines a 1.2 kilometer north-south trending corridor of gold-silver mineralization containing the South Mine Fault Zone, Uncle Sam, and Northeast Extension zones. Gold mineralization at Bolo exhibits characteristics of classic Carlin-type mineralization, including strong subvertical structural control in addition to evidence of gold mineralization extending laterally at low angles within favorable silty carbonate units.   The relatively untested 500 m strike length South Mine Fault-Uncle Sam segment is particularly prospective and is the main focus of New Placer Dome’s 2020 exploration designed to prove-out these compelling structural and stratigraphic gold targets.

Mobilization of the drill and ancillary equipment is scheduled for mid-July, with drilling commencing shortly thereafter.

“We are extremely excited to get back to work at Bolo. Based on our highly successful 2019 RC drill campaign, which yielded some of the highest grade oxide gold results in Nevada last year, our technical team has made significant advances in their understanding of the structural and stratigraphic controls on gold mineralization at Bolo. We’re now in a position to leverage last year’s exploration successes into an expanded 2020 Bolo Gold Project drill program almost twice the size of our 2019 program that has the potential scope to deliver another significant new gold discovery.”

Boart Longyear is experienced with the project, having successfully drilled Kinsley in the past with Liberty Gold Corp. (TSX: LGD) (“Liberty”). The Company looks forward to working with the Boart Longyear team to carry out another successful drilling campaign this summer.

Drilling is expected to commence in mid-July. A Phase 1 program of up to 15,000 metres (~49,200 feet) of reverse circulation (RC) drilling and 5,600 metres (~18,400 feet) of diamond core drilling is anticipated for Kinsley during 2020. Phase 1 drilling will test the high-priority Racetrack, Transverse, Big Bend, Western Flank, and KN targets. New Placer Dome and its technical consultants APEX Geoscience Ltd. (“APEX”) are currently working with Liberty to finalize priority discovery drill target selection. 

Kinsley Mountain is a Carlin-style gold project hosting indicated resources containing 418,000 ounces of gold grading 2.63 g/t Au (4.95 million tonnes) and inferred resources containing 117,000 ounces of gold averaging 1.51 g/t Au (2.44 million tonnes)[1]. The Company believes there is significant potential to expand the footprint of known mineralization and contained resources. 

Bolo

New Placer Dome has secured New Frontier Drilling LLC (“New Frontier”), based in Fallon, Nevada, to provide a crew and drill rig for the upcoming 2020 RC drilling program at Bolo. New Frontier executed the highly successful 2019 RC drilling program at Bolo under the supervision of geologists from APEX. The Company is delighted to welcome both New Frontier and APEX back for the 2020 program.

Drilling at Bolo will focus on testing for Carlin-style gold mineralization at depth in the South Mine Fault Zone, following up on results from the 2019 program including: 

  • 84 metres of 1.37 g/t gold in hole BL19-012and
  • 122 metres of 1.2 g/t gold in hole BL19-04[2]
  • New discovery of 12.2 metres of 3.32 g/t gold in hole BL19-04[3]

The 2020 program will also test the continuity of mineralization between the South Mine Fault Zone and Uncle Sam Silver Zone, where a 2019 outcrop sample yielded 3.63 g/t gold with 262 g/t silver.

Mobilization of the drill and ancillary equipment is scheduled for mid-July, with drilling commencing shortly thereafter. The Company expects to complete a total of approximately 3,000 metres (~9,900 feet) of drilling over a period of approximately 40 drilling days. 

Maximilian Sali, CEO and Founder comments: “Having just completed a significant raise to fund a multi-phase drilling and surface exploration program at Kinsley, as well as a 3,000 metre drill program at Bolo, securing rigs for both projects was essential given the number of companies planning summer drill programs in Nevada, which has increased considerably with the rising price of bullion. With the rigs secured, we and our technical team at APEX will shift our focus to drill targeting for both assets, with Liberty’s technical team assisting with target selection for Kinsley.”

BARRIAN MINING CORP. ANNOUNCES UP TO $10 MILLION NON-BROKERED PRIVATE PLACEMENT AND AMENDED TERMS FOR THE KINSLEY MOUNTAIN GOLD PROJECT – NEVADA

Vancouver, British Columbia – May 4, 2020: Barrian Mining Corp. (“Barrian” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: BARI, OTCQB: BARRF, FSE: BM5) is pleased to provide an update on its current purchase option transaction with Liberty Gold Corp. (“Liberty Gold”) with respect to the Kinsley Mountain Carlin Style Gold Project, located south of the Nevada Gold Mines LLC Long Canyon Gold Mine. Barrian intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) for aggregate gross proceeds of a minimum of $7,500,000 and a maximum of $10,000,000. The Private Placement will consist of units at a price of $0.22 per unit. In connection with the Private Placement, Barrian has amended the previously announced purchase option agreement (see news release dated December 2, 2019) and reduced the initial payment to Liberty Gold. 

At the completion of the Private Placement, Barrian plans to undertake exploration on its projects to:

  1. Expand and advance the Kinsley Mineral Resource by focusing on high-grade drill targets along the Secret Canyon Shale and Dunderberg Shale areas; and
  2. Advance the Bolo Gold-Silver Project through step-out drilling to develop a potential mineral resource estimate.   

Kinsley Mountain Gold Project

The updated Kinsley Mountain resource estimate, having an effective date of January 15, 2020, completed by Mike Gustin, Ph.D., CPG, and prepared in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 – Standards for Disclosure for Mineral Projects, comprises 4.948 million tonnes containing 418,000 indicated ounces of gold at a grade of 2.63 grams Au/t and 2.438 million tonnes containing 117,000 inferred ounces at a grade of 1.51 grams Au/t[1]

At Kinsley, two sedimentary units, the Dunderburg Shale and Secret Canyon Shale, host gold mineralization.  The primary target for high grade gold mineralization is the Secret Canyon Shale, as exemplified by the West Flank Zone, which contains a subset of the indicated resource of 1.249 million tonnes containing 265,000 ounces gold at an average grade of 6.61 grams Au/t. 

Secret Canyon Shale Target

Historical drill results from the West Flank Zone hosted by in the Secret Canyon Shale include:

1 True widths of the mineralized intervals are interpreted to be between 60-90% of the reported lengths.

2 Reportable intercepts for PK126C and PK127C were revised slightly by increasing the minimum g/t*m in order to eliminate smaller and lower grade intervals. One additional “including” intercept was added to the table in PK127C.

3 PK 137C was lost near the bottom of the mineralized zone due to poor ground conditions higher in the hole. PK137CA was wedged off the same hole from above the mineralized zone using NQ tools and was completed through the mineralized zone immediately adjacent to PK137C.

Exploration in the Secret Canyon Shale by Liberty Gold focused on the West Flank Zone which remains open for extension to the east and west.  The Secret Canyon Shale underlies the entire property at depth, with very few tests of the target and excellent potential for new discoveries in the same host rock horizon. For example, hole PK153, drilled 2 km to the south of the Western Flank Zone, yielded the following intercept:

Secret Canyon Target – Growth and Advancement Opportunities

  • High Grade mineralization occurs in structural corridors where they intercept the Secret Canyon Shale.  The Secret Canyon Shale underlies the entire property at depth, with very few tests outside of the Western Flank Zone.
  • Initial metallurgical test results which yielded gold recoveries ranging from 89 – 95% and concentrate grades between 98.6 and 312 grams Au/t demonstrate the amenability of high-grade mineralization from the Secret Canyon shale to produce a high-grade concentrate.

Dunderberg Shale Target

The Dunderberg Shale occurs stratigraphically above the Secret Canyon Shale. Historical production at Kinsley Mountain was sourced in the Dunderberg Shale, with 138,000 ounces averaging 1.4 g/t Au produced from a run of mine oxide heap leach operation during a period of historically low gold prices.  Near surface oxide gold targets remain in this target horizonLiberty Gold extended oxide mineralization down dip of the historical pits, including the following intercepts:

Maximilian Sali, CEO of Barrian comments “We would like to welcome Mr. Cal Everett to our Advisory Board as a senior financial advisor to the Company. We are pleased to also welcome Liberty’s technical team in assisting Barrian with the selection of drill targets at Kinsley. Liberty will become Barrian’s largest shareholder owning 9.9% following the close of this transaction. Previous historical drill intercepts at the Secret Canyon Shale zones which we will be targeting in our 2020 drill program include 36.6m of 8.53 g/t, 29.0m of 21.3 g/t, 11.4m of 32.7 g/t and 21.6m of 17.4 g/t. Liberty Gold’s technical team will assist Barrian with choosing drill targets for this program and we hope to achieve similar results. With a rising gold price at multi year highs we believe that we can create significant shareholder value through the drill bit at Kinsley.” 

Amended Option Agreement 

The previously announced purchase option agreement dated November 29, 2019 (see news release dated December 2, 2019) between Liberty Gold and Barrian has been amended (the “Amended Option Agreement”). 

In order to exercise the option to acquire Liberty Gold’s interest (the “Option”) in Kinsley Gold LLC (the “JVCO”), a limited liability company holding ownership and leasehold rights in and to 513 unpatented claims and 5 leased patented claims, covering 4,187 hectares, known as the “Kinsley Mountain Project”, located in southeast Elko County, Nevada,Barrian must issue common shares and make certain cash payments as follows:

  • pay USD$1,250,000 (previously USD$2,500,000) in cash, pay USD$124,570 in respect of certain bonds/insurance relating operations on the Kinsley Mountain Project and issue 9.9% of common shares (post-Consolidation and post-financing) of Barrian (previously 2,000,000 common shares) (“Initial Payments”);

(b) pay USD$2,500,000 in cash on or before the first anniversary of the final approval of the transaction by the Exchange; and

(c) issue USD$2,500,000 of common shares of Barrian on or before the second anniversary of

the final approval of transaction by the Exchange.

The Initial Payment common shares will be subject to a voluntary 12-month hold period from the date of issuance. Liberty Gold will also be granted anti-dilution rights in future equity financings of Barrian. 

Upon Barrian exercising the Option, Liberty Gold shall have a 1% NSR royalty, on the percentage amount of the JVCO that is owned and controlled by Barrian, of all proceeds received by Barrian attributable to the production and sale of all products produced from the Kinsley Mountain Project (which NSR may be reduced to 0.5% by Barrian paying USD$500,000 in cash). 

The Amended Option Agreement is subject to a number of terms and conditions, including (among other things), closing of a financing (see below), and the final approval of the Exchange. Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp. has waived its right of first refusal in respect of the transfer by Liberty Gold of its interest in Kinsley Gold LLC.

In connection with this transaction, Barrian has agreed to pay a finder’s fee of 800,000 Units (as defined below) to Request Equity Corp., subject to Exchange approval. 

Prior to closing the financing and the proposed transaction with Liberty Gold, Barrian intends to complete a consolidation on the basis of two (2) pre-consolidation shares for one (1) post-consolidation share (the “Consolidation”).

It is anticipated that trading of the Company’s shares will remain halted until completion of the transaction.

Methodology and QA/QC

Drill composites were calculated using a cut-off of 0.20 g/t. Drill intersections are reported as drilled thicknesses. True widths of the mineralized intervals are interpreted to be between 60-90% of the reported lengths. Drill samples were assayed by ALS Global (ALS) in Reno, Nevada for gold by Fire Assay of a 30 gram (1 assay ton) charge with an AA finish, or if over 5.0 g/t were re-assayed and completed with a gravimetric finish. For these samples, the gravimetric data were utilized in calculating gold intersections. Quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) for all drill samples consists of the insertion and continual monitoring of numerous standards and blanks into the sample stream and the collection of duplicate samples at random intervals within each batch. Selected holes are also analyzed for a 51 multi-element geochemical suite by ICP-MS. ALS is an ISO-IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015 accredited geoanalytical laboratory and is independent of the Barrian and the QP. Barrian detected no significant QA/QC issues during review of the data. Barrian is not aware of any drilling, sampling, recovery or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to herein.

There can be no assurance that the proposed transaction with Liberty Gold Corp. will be completed or, if completed, will be successful. 

Forward-looking statements address future events and conditions and are necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions. These statements relate to analyses and other information that are based on forecasts of future results, estimates of amounts not yet determinable and assumptions of management. Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate”, “plans”, “estimates” or “intends”, or stating that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved), and variations of such words, and similar expressions are not statements of historical fact and may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statement are necessarily based upon a number of factors that, if untrue, could cause the actual results, performances or achievements of the Company to be materially different from future results, performances or achievements express or implied by such statements. Such statements and information are based on numerous assumptions regarding present and future business strategies and the environment in which the Company will operate in the future, including the price of metals, anticipated costs and the ability to achieve goals, that general business and economic conditions will not change in a material adverse manner, that financing will be available if and when needed and on reasonable terms, and that third party contractors, equipment and supplies and governmental and other approvals required to conduct the Company’s planned exploration activities will be available on reasonable terms and in a timely manner. While such estimates and assumptions are considered reasonable by the management of the Company, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive and regulatory uncertainties and risks. 

Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual events, level of activity, performance or results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: (i) risks related to gold and other commodity price fluctuations; (ii) risks and uncertainties relating to the interpretation of exploration results; (iii) risks related to the inherent uncertainty of exploration and cost estimates and the potential for unexpected costs and expenses; (iv) that resource exploration and development is a speculative business; (v) that the Company may lose or abandon its property interests or may fail to receive necessary licences and permits;  (vi) that environmental laws and regulations may become more onerous;  (vii) that the Company may not be able to raise additional funds when necessary; (viii) the possibility that future exploration, development or mining results will not be consistent with the Company’s expectations; (ix) exploration and development risks, including risks related to accidents, equipment breakdowns, labour disputes or other unanticipated difficulties with or interruptions in exploration and development; (x) competition; (xi) the potential for delays in exploration or development activities or the completion of geologic reports or studies; (xii) the uncertainty of profitability based upon the Company’s history of losses; (xiii) risks related to environmental regulation and liability; (xiv) risks associated with failure to maintain community acceptance, agreements and permissions (generally referred to as “social licence”); (xv) risks relating to obtaining and maintaining all necessary government permits, approvals and authorizations relating to the continued exploration and development of the Company’s projects; (xvi) risks related to the outcome of legal actions; (xvii) political and regulatory risks associated with mining and exploration; (xix) risks related to current global financial conditions; and (xx) other risks and uncertainties related to the Company’s prospects, properties and business strategy. These risks, as well as others, could cause actual results and events to vary significantly. 

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward looking statements include, but are not limited to, continued availability of capital and financing and general economic, market or business conditions, the loss of key directors, employees, advisors or consultants, adverse weather conditions, increase in costs, equipment failures, litigation, exchange rate fluctuations, failure of counterparties to perform their contractual obligations and fees charged by service providers. Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or events and, accordingly are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements due to the inherent uncertainty of such statements. The forward-looking statements included in this news release are made as of the date hereof and the Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as expressly required by applicable securities legislation.
