Kingfisher Successfully Concludes Diamond Drilling Program at the Goldrange Project

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, October 6, 2021 – Kingfisher Metals Corp. (TSX-V: KFR) (FSE: 970) (OTCQB: KGFMF) (“Kingfisher” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on diamond drilling at the Goldrange Project as the Company awaits analytical results. Goldrange is located approximately 25 km south of the town of Tatla Lake in Southwest British Columbia.

The initial diamond drill program has been completed and consisted of 4,925.3 m over 14 drill holes. Diamond drilling tested the Cloud Drifter Trend, which is defined by a 3 km long gold-in-soil anomaly including 50 samples over 1 g/t Au and rock samples with grades up to 128.9 g/t Au.  Outside of the Cloud Drifter Trend, regional exploration consisted of rock, stream, and soil sampling across the 367 km2 Goldrange Project. 

Highlights

  • The initial drill program at the Goldrange Project has been completed with 4,925.2 m over 14 drill holes.
  • Drilling revealed a broad hydrothermal system cored by sulfide-rich veins and breccias closely linked to plutonic contact zones.
  • Approximately 500 m of the ~3,000 m Cloud Drifter Trend was tested in this initial drill program.

Dustin Perry, CEO of Kingfisher states “I am happy to report that we have successfully concluded the first ever diamond drill program at the Goldrange Project. Our exploration crew has demobilized from the project after completing 14 drill holes over 4,925.3 m. Drilling consistently encountered broad zones of hydrothermal alteration accompanied by sulfide-bearing veins and breccias.  Once assays are received, we will begin 3D modelling of auriferous structural corridors. This work will guide us in our 2022 drill program and help us further unlock the potential of the highly prospective Cloud Drifter Trend.”

The Goldrange Project covers a significant deformation zone with numerous precious metal veins across the project.  Mineralization at Goldrange occurs within the orogenic Yalakom Gold Belt, which is host to the Bridge River District that includes the past producing Bralorne Mine. Several areas of historical hand mining are located within the project and date back to the 1930s.

Diamond Drilling Update

Diamond drilling at the Cloud Drifter Trend has been completed over 14 drill holes totalling 4,925.3 m (table 1). Figure 1 outlines all diamond drilling completed in 2021.  

Mineralization encountered includes broad intercepts of quartz-carbonate-sulfide veins and halo alteration of quartz-sulfide-carbonate-sericite-clay.  Bedrock mapping completed in 2020 was based on limited outcrop data but was corroborated through diamond drilling and remains relatively unchanged.  Figure 1 contains updated bedrock geology adjusted based on 3D models of lithological units and faults identified in drill core logging. Drill core logging included oriented core measurements which will aid future 3D modelling of the Cloud Drifter Trend that will take place prior to drilling in 2022.

A variety of vein, breccia and alteration styles were encountered in the initial drill program.  Vein textures include laminated, shear banded, cataclastic, and open space fill.  Sulfide minerals range from multi-cm size crystals to very fine sooty laminations. The largest quartz vein intercepted in the program was 11.2 m in drill core from hole GR21-014.  Quartz-sulfide stockwork is associated with broad, coalesced halo alteration and disseminated sulfide in the halo.  Breccia textures range from diffuse to brittle clast boundaries, clast types include both diorite and sulfide in a cement of quartz-carbonate-sulfide.  Disseminated mineralization is widespread with variable abundance throughout silica-rich alteration zones. 

The final drill hole summaries from the 2021 drill program are included below.  Previously announced drill hole summaries were included within the August 9, 2021 and September 2, 2021 releases.  The Company is awaiting analytical results for the 2021 drill program and they will be released to the market as they become available.

Kingfisher Provides Update on Regional Exploration at the Goldrange Project

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, September 28, 2021 – Kingfisher Metals Corp. (TSX-V: KFR) (FSE: 970) (OTCQB: KGFMF) (“Kingfisher” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on regional exploration at the Goldrange Project.  Goldrange is located approximately 25 km south of the town of Tatla Lake in Southwest British Columbia. 

Ridge and spur talus and soil sampling was completed over several regions within the 367 km2 Goldrange Project.  Rock sampling and backpack drilling was completed within newly identified grassroots targets in addition to confirmation sampling at historical zones of mineralization.

Highlights

  • Rock sampling up to 89 g/t Au at the Lori Zone, up to 43 g/t Au at the Lost Fiddle Zone, and up to 38 g/t Au at the Lotus Zone
  • Regional grassroots talus sampling up to 2.75 g/t Au and >100 g/t Ag
  • Regional grassroots rock sampling up to 4.01 g/t Au, 463 g/t Ag, and >1% Sb

Dustin Perry, CEO of Kingfisher states “Regional work at Goldrange continues to demonstrate the discovery potential across the Goldrange Project.  Confirmation sampling at historical zones has increased the grade and size of these targets.  Grassroots exploration has identified multiple new areas of anomalous precious metals.”

The Goldrange Project covers a significant deformation zone with numerous precious metal veins across the project.  Mineralization at Goldrange occurs within the orogenic Yalakom Gold Belt, which is also host to the Bridge River District that includes the past producing Bralorne Mine. Several areas of historical hand mining are located within the project and date back to the 1930s.

Regional Exploration Summary

Regional exploration across the Goldrange Project has been focused on advancing several targets to the drill ready stage in addition to covering areas proximal to the Cloud Drifter Trend as well as the northern end of the project which was previously unexplored.

A total of 214 rock samples were collected of which 55 are reported in this release.  A total of 2,604 soil and talus fine samples were collected of which 649 are included within this release.  Backpack drilling of shallow holes was completed at the Lori, Langara, Lost Fiddle, and Lotus Zones.  Geological mapping was completed along ridge and spur traverses in addition to select targets.

The areas of work included within this release are denoted on Figures 1 and 2, which include all sampling completed to date by Kingfisher in addition to samples digitized from historical work programs.

Figure 1: Goldrange Regional Soil Samples
Figure 2: Goldrange Regional Rock Samples

Lori Zone

The Lori Zone (Figure 3) is situated in the center of the Goldrange Project at the headwaters of Ottarasko Creek.  Recent glacial melting has revealed several hundred meters of new bedrock exposure.  The bulk of work carried out on this historical target was completed in the mid 1980s by Homestake Resources and resulted in a peak value of 20.36 g/t Au from quartz-arsenopyrite veins. 

Kingfisher collected 45 rock samples ranging from below detection limit to a maximum value of 88.35 g/t Au.  Additionally, rock sampling returned highly anomalous grades for bismuth and tellurium with values up to 626 ppm Bi and 578.1 ppm Te. 

Geological mapping has revealed a similar setting to the Cloud Drifter Trend with sedimentary rocks intruded by a more competent intrusive.  Veining occurs proximal to and within this intrusive.  Additionally, mafic dykes occur near this contact and appear to have some effect on gold deposition.  Ductile textures were identified in the field, placing the Lori Zone at a deeper depth than the Cloud Drifter Trend.

Backpack drilling was completed over 3 shallow holes (0.1 m to 0.74 m) with results including: 10.9 g/t Au over 0.54 m, 3.14 g/t Au over 0.74 m, and 2.72 g/t Au over 0.1 m. 

Figure 3: Lori Zone

Lotus Zone

The Lotus Zone (Figure 4) is located at the southwestern end of the Goldrange Project.  The showing was originally discovered in 1990 by a prospector.  Historical sampling recorded a peak value of 22.76 g/t Au over 1 m.  Mineralization is defined by a 1.5-3 m quartz-pyrite shear vein that can be traced for approximately 25 m before disappearing under cover in both directions.  The vein occurs near a triple junction contact between volcanic, sedimentary, and intrusive rocks.

Work by Kingfisher was designed to confirm historic grades as well as extend sampling along strike from the historical outcrop.  Kingfisher took 16 rock samples of which 6 are included within this release and range from 0.14 g/t Au to a maximum value of 38.4 g/t Au.  Additionally, backpack drilling was completed over several shallow holes (assays pending) and a soil survey (assays pending) was completed across the strike of the projection of this showing with the hopes of identifying extensions under cover.  

Figure 4: Lotus Zone

Lost Fiddle Zone

The Lost Fiddle Zone (Figure 5) has limited historically documented work and no historical assays.  The zone is approximately 3 km northeast of the Cloud Drifter Trend. Kingfisher geologists prospected the area of the historical showing and outlined an area of blast trenching with quartz-sulfide breccias. 

Mineralization is defined by sulfide-cemented quartz breccias that contain primarily arsenopyrite in addition to chalcopyrite, sphalerite, and other unidentifiable dark grey sulfides.

A total of 26 rock samples were taken of which 6 are included within this release.  Gold values returned so far range from 1.1 g/t Au to 42.8 g/t Au.  Rock sampling revealed a complex mineral system with highly anomalous grades for several other elements.  Sampling returned values up to 1,097 g/t Ag, 4.5% Cu, 0.95% Pb, 1.56% Bi, and 0.32% Co. 

Backpack drilling was completed over several shallow holes (assays pending) in this area in addition to a tightly spaced soil survey (assays pending).  Future work on this target should include an IP survey given the high sulfide content of mineralization. 

Figure 5: Lost Fiddle Zone

Grassroots Exploration

Prospecting and ridge and spur soil sampling were completed across the project area.  Included within this release are portions of the northern end of the Goldrange Project in addition to areas immediately north of the Cloud Drifter Trend. 

The CD North Zone (Figure 6) revealed an area of hornfels sedimentary rocks and intrusives with anomalous ridge and spur talus fine sampling up to 0.23 g/t Au and rock sample values up to 0.37 g/t Au.  Additionally, rock sampling returned anomalous antimony values up to 0.39% Sb.  Although limited work was completed on this target in 2021, the initial signs are promising for the formation of auriferous veins.

Figure 6: CD North Zone

Ridge and spur soil and talus fine sampling was completed across much of the northern portion of the Goldrange Project (Figure 7).  This area has not seen any historical exploration.  Several areas of anomalous gold emerged from this survey with grades up to 2.75 g/t Au in talus fines and up to 4.07 g/t Au in rock sampling.  Four ridgeline traverses revealed anomalous mineralization with two ridge lines appearing to highlight a northwest trend (Razorback Zone).  Rock sampling at the Razorback Zone (Figure 8) revealed high-level textures with anomalous silver (up to 463 g/t Ag) and antimony (up to >1% Sb) indicating an epizonal nature to the mineralization.

Several areas of arsenic anomalism were identified in the field with a portable XRF* device (Figure 7).  These areas were followed up with detailed geochemical surveys for which results are pending.

Given the lack of historical exploration in this area and the limited time spent generating these targets in 2021, Kingfisher is very excited with these initial results.

The remainder of the results from the 2021 regional exploration program at the Goldrange Project will be released as they become available.

Kingfisher Provides Update on Diamond Drilling at the Goldrange Project

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, September 2, 2021 – Kingfisher Metals Corp. (TSX-V: KFR) (FSE: 970) (OTCQB: KGFMF) (“Kingfisher” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on diamond drilling at the Goldrange Project as the Company awaits analytical results. Goldrange is located approximately 25 km south of the town of Tatla Lake in Southwest British Columbia.

The maiden diamond drill program consists of approximately 5,000 m over ~15 holes.  Diamond drilling istesting the Cloud Drifter Trend which is defined by a 3 km long gold-in-soil anomaly including 50 samples over 1 g/t Au and rock samples grading up to 128.9 g/t Au.  Outside of the Cloud Drifter Trend, regional exploration consisting of rock, stream, and soil sampling is being completed across the 367 km2 project. To date, 9 drill holes have been completed totalling 3,289 m.

Highlights

  • Drilling continues to encounter widespread zones of quartz-carbonate-sulfide veins, quartz-carbonate-sulfide breccias, and disseminated sulfides within all drill holes completed to date. 
  • The highest density zones of mineralized veins occur within broad bleached and sericite altered intervals proximal to intrusive-sedimentary contacts.  Within bleached zones, disseminated fuchsite is common. 
  • The majority of drilling has focused on testing structurally-hosted mineralization at the contacts of the upper diorite.  GR21-007 was drilled to 533 m to additionally test the lower quartz diorite which contained similar quartz-carbonate-sulfide breccias and veins as found within the upper intrusion.  

Dustin Perry, CEO of Kingfisher states Since the third drill hole (GR21-003) of the 2021 program we have been testing the contacts between the upper diorite and sedimentary rocks. These broad contact zones are proving to be favourable locations for hydrothermal alteration and sulfide mineralization.  With GR21-007 we have also intersected similar styles of mineralization within the lower quartz diorite.  The 2021 program is consistently encountering structurallyhosted sulfide mineralization within these contact zones and demonstrating the potential for the rest of the Cloud Drifter Trend.”

Charlie Grieg, Advisor to Kingfisher states “Visuals from the first nine holes for the initial drill program at the Goldrange Project clearly match the systematic surface geochemistry and geology and together they are indicative of the existence of a large hydrothermal system.  During my site visit, I was able to examine all the core from the Cloud Drifter Zone holes and was impressed not only with the extent, variety, and strength of the sulfide mineralization and hydrothermal alteration, but also with the exploration potential of this sizeable and relatively easily-accessed property—very exciting prospect for Kingfisher!”

The Goldrange Project covers a significant deformation zone with numerous precious metal veins across the project.  Mineralization at Goldrange occurs within the orogenic Yalakom Gold Belt, which is host to the Bridge River District that includes the past producing Bralorne Mine. Several areas of historical hand mining are located within the project and date back to the 1930s.

Diamond Drilling Update

Diamond drilling at the Cloud Drifter Trend has been completed over 9 drill holes totalling 3289 m (table 1). Figure 1 outlines the drilling progress to date and remaining planned holes. 

Mineralization encountered in drilling to date includes broad intercepts of quartz-carbonate veins and halo alteration of quartz-carbonate-sericite-clay. 

Vein styles include laminated shear banded quartz-sulfide, open space fill veins with euhedral minerals and coarse sulfide, massive pyrite or arsenopyrite veins, and stockwork-style diffuse veins associated with strong halo alteration. 

Breccia textures range from diffuse to brittle clast boundaries to diorite and sulfide clasts with cement of quartz-carbonate-sulfide.  Disseminated mineralization is widespread with variable intensity throughout quartz-carbonate-sericite-clay alteration zones.  

Disseminated sulfides range from fine grained to coarse grained massive and semi massive sulfides.

Kingfisher Provides Update on Diamond Drilling and Regional Exploration at the Goldrange Project

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, August 9, 2021 – Kingfisher Metals Corp. (TSX-V: KFR, FSE: 970) (“Kingfisher” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on diamond drilling and regional exploration at the Goldrange Project as the Company awaits analytical results. Goldrange is located approximately 25 km south of the town of Tatla Lake in Southwest British Columbia.

The maiden diamond drill program consists of approximately 5,000 m over ~15 holes.  Diamond drilling is testing the Cloud Drifter Trend which is defined by a 3 km long gold-in-soil anomaly including 50 samples over 1 g/t Au and rock samples grading up to 128.9 g/t Au.  Outside of the Cloud Drifter Trend, regional exploration consisting of rock, stream, and soil sampling is being completed across the 367 km2 project.  To date, 4 drill holes have been completed totalling 1,258 m.

Highlights

  • Drilling has encountered widespread zones of quartz-carbonate-sulfide veins, quartz-carbonate-sulfide breccias, and disseminated sulfides within all drill holes completed to date.
  • Sulfide mineralogy includes arsenopyrite, pyrite, marcasite, chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite, sphalerite, boulangerite, stibnite, tennantite-tetrahedrite, and molybdenite.
  • Ongoing regional exploration has collected 2,365 soil samples and 217 rock samples across the tenure with multiple arsenic anomalies identified.

Dustin Perry, CEO of Kingfisher states “Drilling to date has furthered our belief that the Cloud Drifter Trend may host a significant hydrothermal vein system. All drill holes completed to date have intersected widespread quartz-carbonate-sulfide veins, breccias and disseminated sulfides over 300 m of strike and ~430 m of vertical extent.  Diamond drilling has collaborated the styles of mineralization and alteration identified on surface in 2020. Outside of the Cloud Drifter Trend, regional grassroots exploration has been moving at an efficient pace and has outlined several areas of arsenic anomalism in soils identified with a portable XRF.  Initial prospecting has identified quartz-sulfide veins at several of these locations.”

The Goldrange Project covers a significant deformation zone with numerous precious metal veins across the project.  Mineralization at Goldrange occurs within the orogenic Yalakom Gold Belt, which is host to the Bridge River District that includes the past producing Bralorne Mine. Several areas of historical hand mining are located within the project and date back to the 1930s.

Diamond Drilling Update

Diamond drilling at the Cloud Drifter Trend has been completed over 4 drill holes totalling 1,258 m (table 1). Figure 1 outlines the drilling progress to date and remaining planned holes.

Table 1: 2021 Cloud Drifter Drill Collars

GR21-001 and GR21-002

The initial two drill holes at the Cloud Drifter Trend were collared from the same drill pad above a thrust fault deformation zone west of the main Cloud Drifter soil anomaly. Field work in 2020 at this location identified an array of east-dipping quartz-carbonate-sulfide veins and quartz-carbonate-sulfide breccia.

GR21-001 (341/-45) intersected a sequence of porphyritic andesite, volcaniclastic conglomerate and siltstone. The upper 44 m intersected the brittle deformation zone with poor recovery and highly oxidized rock. The deformation zone is characterized by abundant Fe-oxide minerals in and near quartz-carbonate veins, interpreted to reflect oxidized sulfide minerals. Intervals of Fe-oxide are associated with high arsenic values (1000 – >10,000 ppm As) identified by a portable XRF* device. Discreet zones of brecciation were encountered throughout the drill hole, associated with pervasive quartz-carbonate alteration and bleaching. Pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, pyrrhotite, and molybdenite were most commonly associated with the brecciated and bleached zones. The drill hole was lost at a final depth of 218 m in what is interpreted to be the principle thrust fault of the deformation zone.

GR21-002 (341/-64) intersected an upper sequence of porphyritic andesite, volcaniclastic conglomerate and siltstone to a depth of 261.1 m. The upper 39 m intersected the brittle deformation zone with poor recovery and highly oxidized rock. The deformation zone is characterized by abundant Fe-oxide minerals in and near quartz-carbonate veins, interpreted to reflect oxidized sulfide minerals. Intervals of Fe-oxide are associated with high arsenic values (1000 – >10,000 ppm As) identified by a portable XRF* device. 

Below this sequence are biotite-amphibole quartz diorite and amphibole-pyroxene diorite that were intersected to a depth of 436.3 m, beneath which siltstone was cored to the end of the drill hole. Discreet zones of brecciation were encountered throughout, associated with pervasive quartz-carbonate alteration and bleaching. Zoned chlorite-epidote and biotite hornfels were present at the upper contact between the sedimentary and intrusive rocks.   Pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, pyrrhotite, arsenopyrite, and molybdenite were identified within brecciated and bleached intervals in the upper volcanic-sedimentary sequence as well as quartz-carbonate veins in the intrusions. GR21-002 was terminated at a final depth of 482 m.

GR21-003 and GR21-004

The first drill holes designed to test the broad gold-in-soil anomaly at the Cloud Drifter Trend were collared from the same pad upslope of an area of mineralization outlined in 2020.  2020 sampling in this area returned a channel sample grading 2.08 g/t Au over 6 m as well as highlight grab sample up to 53.9 g/t Au.

GR21-003 (341/-50) intersected an upper sequence of biotite hornfels-altered volcaniclastic siltstone, sandstone and conglomerate to a depth of 49.8 m.  Within the upper sequence, the top 30 m consisted of highly fractured and oxidized rock with poor recovery.  The deformation zone is characterized by abundant Fe-oxide minerals in and near quartz-carbonate veins, interpreted to reflect oxidized sulfide minerals. Intervals of Fe-oxide are associated with high arsenic values (1000 – >10,000 ppm As) identified by a portable XRF* device. 

Below the sedimentary rocks, drilling intersected biotite-amphibole quartz diorite and amphibole-pyroxene diorite to 183.4 m, below which siltstone was cored to the end of hole. Pervasive quartz-carbonate-sericite±chlorite alteration is spatially associated with quartz-carbonate-sulfide veins. Pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, marcasite, stibnite, boulangerite, tetrahedrite-tennantite, sphalerite and pyrrhotite were identified within and proximal to quartz-carbonate veins. Vein textures include open space growth, local quartz-carbonate-cement breccia, laminated and shear-banded. GR21-003 was terminated at a final depth of 272 m.

GR21-004 (320/-64) was drilled down dip from GR21-003 and slightly to the west.  Drill core logging has not been completed at the time of this news release.

The 2021 diamond drill program is guided by detailed surface geochemical and structural data collected in 2020 in addition to the 2021 IP geophysical survey.  Initial drilling is focused on a ~500 m segment of the Cloud Drifter Trend, within the Cloud Drifter Zone, and is defined by the best bedrock exposure and geological confidence.  Initial results from the IP geophysical survey indicate the presence of strong chargeability anomalies associated with high-tenor soil geochemical anomalies, strongly anomalous rock chip samples, and mapped mineralization at surface. Analytical results will be released as they become available.

Regional Exploration Update

Regional exploration at Goldrange is ongoing and has been completed across the length of the project (figure 2).  As of the time of this news release, 2,356 soil and talus fine samples have been completed, primarily on grassroots targets.  Additionally, 217 rock samples and 7 stream sediment samples have been collected.  Backpack drilling has been completed over 13 holes for a total of 37.61 m. 

Samples have been analysed daily with a portable XRF* and numerous zones of anomalous As, Sb, Zn, Pb, and Cu have been identified.  Infill sampling has been completed at several of these zones.  Prospecting within several of these zones has identified areas of quartz-sulfide veining. Analytical results will be released as they become available.

*Readers are cautioned that Portable XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence) spot analyses are not equivalent to laboratory assays; they simply give an indication of the presence of certain metal elements in the drill core. Spot analyses referenced here were collected using an Olympus Vanta XRF Analyzer, which cannot reliably detect Gold, but does detect the geochemical pathfinder elements such as Arsenic, Bismuth, Copper, Antimony, Molybdenum, Lead, and Zinc that are commonly associated with Gold. Assay results are pending.

Kingfisher Begins Diamond Drilling at the Goldrange Project to Test the Cloud Drifter Trend

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 7, 2021 – Kingfisher Metals Corp. (TSX-V: KFR, FSE: 970) (“Kingfisher” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling at the Goldrange Project, located approximately 25 km south of the town of Tatla Lake in Southwest British Columbia.  The maiden diamond drill program will consist of approximately 5,000 meters over ~15 holes.  Diamond drilling will test the Cloud Drifter Trend which is defined by a 3 km long gold-in-soil anomaly including 50 samples over 1 g/t Au and rock samples grading up to 128.9 g/t Au.

The previously announced induced polarization (IP) geophysical survey at the Goldrange Project is currently underway and surveying to date has highlighted several chargeability and resistivity anomalies throughout the trend.  Incoming IP geophysical data is being used for drill targeting and the final results of this survey will be communicated to the market once the survey and analysis is completed.

Dustin Perry, CEO of Kingfisher states “We are thrilled to begin drill testing this exciting epizonal gold target. Since beginning our 2021 field program at the Goldrange Project in early May, we have made significant progress on our regional programs in addition to completing initial drill pad construction and IP geophysical surveying at the Cloud Drifter Trend.  Initial IP geophysical data has highlighted several chargeability anomalies coincident with mapped zones of quartz-sulfide vein swarms and high tenor gold-in-soil geochemical anomalies.  This provides additional confidence in our drill targeting within the prospective Cloud Drifter Trend.”

The Goldrange Project covers a significant deformation zone with numerous precious metal veins across the project.  Mineralization at Goldrange occurs within the orogenic Yalakom Gold Belt, which is host to the Bridge River District that includes the past producing Bralorne Mine. Several areas of historical hand mining are located within the project and date back to the 1930s.

Initial work completed by Kingfisher in 2020 included infill and confirmation soil sampling within the Cloud Drifter Trend.  The 2020 survey (see March 31, 2021  release) outlined a 3 km-long gold-in-soil anomaly with 134 samples over 0.5 g/t Au and 50 samples over 1 g/t Au with a highlight of 22.08 g/t Au.  Rock sampling returned highly anomalous gold grades with 312 samples (see April 14, 2021 release) averaging 6.26 g/t Au and a highlight of 128.9 g/t Au.  Backpack drilling within the Cloud Drifter Trend included highlights of 6.9 m of 10.84 g/t Au (BP-ST-20-01) (see April 21, 2021 release) and 8.3 m of 0.97 g/t Au (BP-CD-20-02) separated by ~750 m.  Plan view maps of the initial planned drill holes at the Cloud Drifter Trend are outlined in figures 1 and 2 below.
