Signal Gold Identifies Potential Extensions of the Goldboro Deposit and Initiates a 4,000 Metre Diamond Drill Program

13.10.2022 | 7:00 Uhr | Accesswire

TORONTO, October 13, 2022 - Signal Gold Inc. or the "Company" (TSX:SGNL)(OTCQX:SGNLF) is pleased to announce it has received initial results of the Induced Polarization geophysical survey ("IP Survey") at its Goldboro Gold Project in Nova Scotia, Canada (Goldboro", or the "Project"). The initial results comprise 36-line kilometres of the IP Survey and include an orientation of the known Goldboro Deposit, which demonstrates a chargeability response coincident with the Goldboro Mineral Resource.

Significantly, this chargeability response continues 400 metres to the west of the Goldboro Deposit to the western end of the IP Survey and down to depths of at least 250 metres, which may represent the along strike continuity of the Goldboro Deposit (Exhibits A and B). Historical data suggests the structure which hosts the Goldboro Deposit potentially continues a minimum 2.0 kilometres west of the Goldboro Mineral Resource, which the Company will further test in the near-term as it consolidates land access in this area. Based on the initial results, the Company is initiating a 4,000-metre diamond drill program in the coming weeks to test the possible extension of the Deposit.

Exhibit A. A map showing the location of the West and East pits of the Goldboro Gold Project and the location of the past producing Dolliver Mountain mine one kilometer to the west. Also shown is the potential trend of the host structure to the Goldboro deposit and its anticipated westerly extension as shown by an existing VLF survey. The existing data indicates there is potential for further mineralization over a minimum 2.0-kilometre strike.

"Based on a historical VLF survey which extended along strike of the known Goldboro deposit and ended at a past producing gold mine on the western edge of our property, we recognized there is a significant opportunity to expand the Mineral Resources at Goldboro along strike to the west of the current Mineral Resource. The initial IP Survey results strongly demonstrate that there is a geophysical response along strike and at depth associated with the Goldboro Deposit and that this same response continues westward for at least 400 metres, and potentially further, as the historic data suggests that the structure which hosts the Goldboro Deposit continues a minimum 2.0 kilometres west of the current Mineral Resource. We are excited to begin a 4,000-metre drill program based on these initial IP Survey results while we prepare for a further geophysical program as we consolidate land access in the area. The potential discovery of mineralization west of the existing Mineral Resource highlights the continued growth potential of what is already a long-life gold development project in Nova Scotia."

~ Kevin Bullock, President and CEO, Signal Gold Inc.

The Company has identified a significant opportunity to expand the existing Mineral Resource west of the IP Survey where the host structure to the Goldboro Deposit continues for a further 2.0 kilometres. This is demonstrated by historic, near-surface, geophysical anomalies and previous drilling towards the past producing Dolliver Mountain gold mine*. Additional IP surveying will cover this area of strike potential and will be initiated following the completion of access agreements and permitting.

The IP Survey was completed by Abitibi Geophysics using OreVision® and OreVision®3D. The upcoming drill program and additional geophysical surveys will be funded with existing Flow Through funds.

*Operations began at the Dolliver Mountain Gold Mine in 1901 and the operation ceased in 1905.
