Edmonton, Alberta–(June 15, 2022) – Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the “Company” or “Green River“) is pleased to update the progress at the 2022 exploration program at its Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium/Talc project, located 40 kilometers from the City of Quesnel, British Columbia, in the prolific Cariboo Mining District.
The following map shows the magnetic anomalies circled in yellow. The map also highlights the location of the 2021 and 2022 drill hole locations. The magnetic anomaly extends over 14 linear kilometers.
Kyle Townsend, Mine Manager for Green River Gold Corp. comments “The recently completed UAV-MAG survey confirmed our theory that the magnetic anomalies discovered in the 2021 survey would continue on the NW trend. As we continue to strategically back pack drill, along with a comprehensive soil sampling program early this summer, we will have a very strong data set to design our future drilling program.”
Stephen Kocsis, Geologist for Green River Gold Corp. comments “Our initial drill program has intercepted thick ultramafic rock sequences containing elevated concentrations of nickel and other metals. A second phase of drilling will give us a better understanding of the distribution of potential mineralization and their structural controls.”
The previously completed UAV-MAG survey results over the Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium/Talc Project area indicated the presence of highly magnetic rocks co-incident with the interpreted surface exposure and down-dip projection of a favorable ultramafic rock assemblage. These results are similar to the aeromagnetic response in the area of nickel-alloy mineralization found throughout the BC Decar District.
The elevated elements are hosted in serpentinized ultramafic rocks belonging to the Slide Mountain Terrane.
During the 2021 exploration drilling 9 shallow holes were drilled from a talc outcropping. Assay results from the first 6 of those holes have been received and are presented in the table below.
|Hole Number||Depth (M)||Magnesium (%)||Nickel ppm||Chromium ppm|
|Average of 6 holes||15.73%||1515||1582|
Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium/Talc Project Highlights:
There are 3 BC MINFILE occurrences as follows:
- 093A 013 – Sovereign Creek – developed prospect containing talc and magnesite, and a co-incident nickel sulfide showing.
- 093A 130 – Sovereign – showings containing talc and nickel sulfides.
- 093H 061 – R.T. – showing containing nickel, chromium, and cobalt.
Historical records indicate four widely separated areas of talc alteration along a 1.4- kilometer trend. Having discovered the presence of nickel in the talc mineralization in the area of Do-Do- Creek, the Company will be further investigating the other three known areas of talc alteration for the presence of nickel this season.
Fontaine Lode Gold Exploration Plan:
Last year, the UAV magnetic survey identified many anomalies in the area. This year, the exploration crew will take soil and rock samples from the area of those magnetic anomaly locations. Meanwhile, the vein structures, outcroppings, and mineral showings will be recorded and mapped. A backpack drill will be utilized to execute strategic drilling on the outcrops to investigate for occurrences of mineralization. The project geologist will summarize the previous historical mining activities and exploration records and plotting all the records on map, to verify the historical records during the 2022 field season.
