Vancouver, September 21, 2021 - Leocor Gold Inc.
(the "Company" or "Leocor") (CNSX:LECR.CN) (OTC:LECRF) (FRA:LGO) is pleased to announce it has received exploration approval for its Baie Verte projects, located in the Baie Verte Peninsula, Newfoundland, Canada.
Exploration activities consisting of prospecting, geochemical survey, ground geophysics, and fixed wing airborne surveys (LiDAR, UAV) are now approved across the Company's Baie Verte project portfolio and are expected to begin over the next few weeks. The 2,000-hectare Baie Verte portfolio includes the Dorset, Five Mile Brook, Dorset Extension, and Copper Creek projects.
Leocor's Baie Verte portfolio extends on-trend across a highly structured and defined part of the mineral rich Baie Verte region. Surrounded by mine operators, developers, and explorers such as Anaconda Mining (TSX: ANX), Rambler Metals & Mining (AIM: RMM), Maritime Resources (TSX-V: MAE), Tenacity Gold Mining Co., Fairhaven Resources, Unity Mining, Shoreline Aggregates and others, this is a mining-friendly region originally opened up by Noranda Mines.
The Main Zone at Dorset includes three historic occurrences, with up to 409 grams-per-tonne ("g/t") gold ("Au") in grab samples, with channel sampling results of 177 g/t Au over 0.35m, 22 g/t Au over 1.5m, 17.2 g/t Au over 1.5m, and 14.7 g/t Au over 1.5m. Historic drilling includes 9.5 g/t Au over 1.3m (MacDougall, 1990).
Historic select sampling at the Braz Zone returned values of 314 g/t Au, 40 g/t Au, 31.4 g/t Au, 21.2 g/t Au, 19.2 g/t Au, and 14.8 g/t Au. Historic channel sampling across the vein, returned 9.5 g/t Au over 0.4m; 5.7 g/t Au over 0.5m and 1.2 g/t Au over 0.65m. Weighted averages of historic rock sampling encompassing vein and mineralized wall rock returned values of 5.8 g/t Au over 1.9m; 3.1 g/t Au over 2.0m and 2.5 g/t Au over 1.5m (MacDougall, 1990).
