TORONTO, Jan. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wallbridge Mining Firm Restricted (TSX:WM)(“Wallbridge”or the“Firm”) is happy to announce that new assay outcomes from the definition drilling program on the Fenelon Gold Property (“Fenelon” or the “Property”) proceed to substantiate the excessive “metallic issue” (grade multiplied by core size) continuity of the Tabasco-Cayenne shear system. The outcomes reported right now embrace a large intersection of 3.48 g/t Au over 54.00 metresin FA-20-197 from the western a part of the gold system, with larger grade sub-intervals of 8.91 g/t Au over 5.60 metres, 11.80 g/t Au over 2.25 metres, and 14.53 g/t Au over 2.90 metres.
Fenelon Gold System, Tabasco/Cayenne Zone Definition Drilling
Definition drilling to a 50-60 metre nominal spacing continues to stipulate the excessive metallic issue core of the Tabasco-Cayenne shear system, which kinds a part of the bigger shear hall and has to date been drilled over a strike size of 800 metres to a vertical depth of 1,000 metres. The excessive metallic issue area is measured within the tens of metres, as additionally highlighted by the current intersection of 5.07 g/t Au over 100.60 metres in gap FA-20-181 (see Wallbridge Press Release dated November 19, 2020). Because the holes method the Tabasco-Cayenne zones, in addition they transect the Space 51 gold vein community.
“The sturdy assay outcomes launched right now from the western a part of the recognized gold system proceed to reveal vital gold endowment and good continuities in Tabasco-Cayenne and Space 51, and supply us with essential data on the connection between these zones,”said Attila Péntek, Vice President Exploration of Wallbridge.“On this western a part of the gold system, the Tabasco and Cayenne Zones come nearer to one another and upon getting into the Jeremie Diorite, transitions from shear zone-hosted to Space 51 vein network-style mineralization.”
Spotlight intersections from the definition drilling within the Tabasco-Cayenne Zones embrace:
|FA-20-197||3.48 g/t Au over 54.00 metres, together with
|8.91 g/t Au over 5.60 metres,|
|11.80 g/t Au over 2.25 metres,and|
|14.53 g/t Au over 2.90 metres within the Tabasco Zone, and|
|3.24 g/t Au over 11.75 metres within the Cayenne Zone (see Figs. 1, 6 and 7);|
|FA-20-158||3.07 g/t Au over 7.00 metres and|
|10.38 g/t Au over 3.00 metres in a transition from Tabasco Zone to Space 51 (see Figs. 1 and 4);|
|FA-20-177||11.15 g/t Au over 3.60 metreswithin the Cayenne Zone (see Fig. 5);|
|This drill gap needed to be terminated prematurely, solely 5 metres previous this intersection, resulting from mechanical points and subsequently didn’t totally cross the Tabasco-Cayenne mineralized horizon.|
|FA-20-188||37.45 g/t Au over 2.60 metreswithin the Cayenne Zone (see Fig. 8);|
|FA-20-193||2.59 g/t Au over 18.80 metres, together with|
|21.45 g/t Au over 1.95 metres in a transition from Space 51 to Tabasco Zone (see Figs. 1 and 4);|
Space 51 Intersections from the Tabasco/Cayenne Definition Drill Holes
Because the Tabasco/Cayenne definition drill holes method the Tabasco/Cayenne shear system, they go by way of the Space 51 vein community, which is characterised by large mineralized zones consisting of numerous larger grade veins hosted primarily within the Jeremie Diorite and underlying sediments.
Spotlight intersections from Space 51 from the holes reported right now embrace:
|FA-20-197||8.17 g/t Au over 3.75 metres(see Fig. 7);|
|FA-20-188||1.49 g/t Au over 72.50 metres, together with|
|67.20 g/t Au over 0.50 metre, and|
|3.98 g/t Au over 7.50 metres, (see Fig. 8);|
|FA-20-193||1.13 g/t Au over 77.35 metres, together with|
|13.62 g/t Au over 4.25 metres (see Fig. 4);|
Fenelon Tabasco-Cayenne Growth Drilling
Growth drilling on Space 51 and the Tabasco-Cayenne zones utilizing giant (75 to 200 metres) step-outs at depth and towards the east has been persevering with with 1 to 2 drill rigs.
Drill gap FA-20-202 intersected what’s presently the easternmost recognized expression of the Tabasco zone with typical, sulfide-rich, silicified shear zones that assayed 2.77 g/t Au over 6.00 metres, together with 4.58 g/t Au over 2.25 metres. This intersection represents an approximate 150 metre japanese step-out on recognized mineralization within the Tabasco zone and follow-up drilling within the neighborhood of this intersection and at additional depth is presently underway.
Drill holes FA-20-203 and -205 have intersected sturdy, seen gold-bearing zones within the japanese a part of the recognized Tabasco-Cayenne shear system with assays presently pending (see Fig. 1).
“The gold system is large open towards the east, and intersections akin to those in FA-20-202 as effectively -203 and -205 with assays pending present us affirmation of great growth potential additionally on this space,”said Mr. Péntek.
2020-2021 Drilling Program Replace
In 2020, Wallbridge accomplished roughly 102,000 metres of exploration and useful resource drilling at Fenelon, attaining its 2020 goal regardless of the momentary suspension of actions within the spring because of the COVID pandemic. For almost all of the 12 months, six drill rigs had been working and a seventh drill was mobilized to the undertaking on the finish of November.
In 2021, the Firm is planning to finish roughly 170,000 metres of drilling with a maiden useful resource estimate at Fenelon anticipated within the third quarter (see Wallbridge Press Release dated January 11, 2021). Roughly 10-15% of the drilling program can be dedicated to regional exploration on the Firm’s district-scale, underexplored land bundle on the Detour-Fenelon Gold Pattern.
At the moment, drilling is ramping up and by the top of January the Firm may have 9 drill rigs turning. Six drill rigs are focusing on the Fenelon Gold System (Tabasco-Cayenne-Space 51 mineralization) to roughly 1,000 metre vertical depth, finishing up a mixture of 75-100-metre step-outs and tighter-spaced (50-60-metre) in-fill and definition drilling. Two drill rigs can be specializing in near-surface, open pit useful resource drilling within the western portion of Space 51. One drill rig can be dedicated to regional, grassroots exploration at varied initiatives on the Firm’s 900 km2 Detour-Fenelon Gold Pattern land bundle.
Assay outcomes of 19 drill holes of the 2020 exploration drill program are reported within the Tables and s beneath. All figures and a desk with drill gap data of lately accomplished holes are posted on the Firm’s web site underneath “Present Program” at https://www.wallbridgemining.com/s/fenelon.asp.

Drill core samples from the continued drill program at Fenelon are lower and bagged both on website or by contractors and transported to both SGS Canada Inc. or ALS Canada Ltd. for evaluation. Samples, together with requirements, blanks and duplicates included for high quality assurance and high quality management, had been ready and analyzed at SGS Canada Inc. or ALS Canada Ltd. laboratories. Samples are crushed to 90% or 95% lower than 2mm. A 1kg riffle break up is pulverized to >95% passing 106 microns or 85% passing 75 microns. 50g samples are analyzed by hearth assay and AAS. At SGS, samples >10g/t Au are robotically analyzed by hearth assay with gravimetric end or display screen metallic evaluation. To check for coarse free gold and for added high quality assurance and high quality management, Wallbridge requests display screen metallic evaluation for samples containing seen gold.

About Wallbridge Mining
Wallbridge is presently advancing the exploration and growth of its 100%-owned Fenelon Gold property, which is situated alongside the Detour-Fenelon Gold Pattern, an rising gold belt in northwestern Québec. The Firm accomplished roughly 102,000 metres of drilling in 2020 and has begun a fully-funded 170,000-metre drill program and 10,000-metre, two-year underground growth program in 2021. The Firm intends to finish a maiden useful resource on the Fenelon Gold System within the third quarter of 2021.
Wallbridge now holds a number of kilometres surrounding its quickly increasing Fenelon discovery offering room for progress, in addition to future mine growth flexibility. Wallbridge’s land holdings in Québec alongside the Detour-Fenelon Gold Pattern is over 900.0 km2, bettering Wallbridge’s potential for additional discoveries for over 90-kilometre strike size on this under-explored belt.
Wallbridge can also be the operator of, and a shareholder in, Lonmin Canada Inc., a privately-held firm with a big portfolio of nickel, copper, and platinum-group metals (PGM) initiatives in Ontario’s Sudbury Basin.
