Lake Winn Resources Corp. (“Lake Winn” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has received the assay results for its 8 holes, 1,683 meter, phase 1 drilling campaign on the Cloud project, in the Flin Flon Gold Belt, Manitoba.
The highlight results are from drill hole CP-2020-02 where 0.69m returned 26.54 g/t from 179.7m to 180.39m. The second drill hole CP-2021-03 where 2m @ 13.75 g/t Au from 142m to 144m, this intercept coincided with visible gold being noted in the core. These 2 diamond drill holes are 175 metres apart and the high grade gold intercepts are hosted in bucky white quartz veins.
Table 1. lists the intercepts in each hole using a >0.5g/t cut-off.
|CP-2020-01||159||160||1m @ 0.69 g/t Au|
|169||170||1m @ 1.5 g/t Au|
|CP-2020-02||60||61||1m @ 2.69g/t Au|
|115||116||1m @ 0.93 g/t Au|
|179.70||180.39||0.69m @ 26.54 g/t Au|
|CP-2021-01||53.95||54.95||1m @ 0.97 g/t Au|
|126.00||128.00||2m @ 0.88 g/t Au|
|137.00||138.00||1m @ 0.62 g/t Au|
|CP-2021-02||No Intercepts above 0.5 g/t|
|CP-2021-03||136.00||138.00||2m @ 2.17 g/t Au|
|141.00||145.00||4m @ 7.45 g/t Au||Includes 1m @ 17.3 g/t and 1m @ 10.2 g/t, visible gold noted in core, or 2m @ 13.75 g/t Au|
|CP-2021-04||No Intercepts above 0.5 g/t|
|CP-2021-05||80.80||81.80||1m @ 0.61 g/t Au|
|CP-2021-06||141.00||142.00||1m @ 0.51 g.t Au|
|143.00||144.00||1m @ 1.18 g/t Au|
Samples were sent to TSL Laboratories of Saskatoon, an independent laboratory using a chain of custody. Gold was measured by fire assay using 30 g aliquots of half NQ sized core and an AAS finish. Samples assaying >3 g/t Au were in addition subject to gravimetric finish where the resultant bead is weighed on a micro-balance. In the >10g/t cases the company elected to do a total digestion of the remaining ½ NQ core sample weighing approx., 1.8kg for a screened gravimetric finish. These larger more representative samples are reported in table 1. In these samples over 60% of the gold reported to the greater than 150 micron screen. For each 24 sample batch, the lab used 4 internal standards. For each of the 40 samples the company submitted one duplicate, one blank, and one standard. The results for the standards showed good precision and accuracy.
Table 2 gives the geographic co-ordinates for each drill hole and their dip and azimuth. Figure 1 is a plan view of the drill holes noting the gold intercepts.
The drilling tested a number of targets, which included IP anomalies, resistivity anomalies, and drilling beneath historic prospecting pits. It was those drill holes that tested beneath the pits and the magnetic, mafic, host unit that successfully encountered gold. As mentioned above, the gold intercepts were hosted in late-stage cross cutting buck white quartz veins (post-peak metamorphism) that had variable amounts of sulphides. The quartz veins showed brittle shear and multiple histories. The down hole surveys showed the holes flattened to 40-45o dip where they encountered the quartz veins and contacts were near perpendicular. The true widths will therefore be 70%-100% of those reported here.
Lake Winn is encouraged by these high-grade gold intercepts in the very first phase of exploration, initiated immediately after completing the option on the property from W. S. Ferreira Ltd and receipt of the work permit. They require immediate follow-up and, Lake Winn plans to return the project to conduct further 2,000m of drilling focused on the mafic unit and high grade zones between around drill holes CP-2020-02 and CP-2021-03. This will commence once the permit is renewed. The mafic/magnetic unit that hosts the gold continues 4km to the west based on the magnetic data and this unit is now considered highly prospective. In Spring the company will also conduct prospecting and till sampling.
