Edmonton, Alberta (October 3, 2022) – Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the “Company” or “Green River“) is pleased to update the progress on 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 Company has intercepted nickel and chromium in seven additional backpack Drill Holes in Zone 2 (Drill Holes FCD-22-11 to FCD-22-17). The Company also extended the depth of Drill Hole FCD-22-08. This brings the total number of holes drilled in Zone 2 to seventeen. Every hole drilled in Zone 2, as well as all holes drilled previously in Zone 1, have intercepted nickel and chromium from surface.
The drill core for all Drill Holes was delivered to the Company’s facility in Quesnel and scanned with an XRF analyzer. The XRF results for nickel and chromium for each of the seventeen Drill Holes in Zone 2 are reported in the following table.
Zone 2 Hole Averages
|Hole #||Meters drilled||Ni Hole Average %||Cr Hole Average %|
|Total Meters Drilled||83.6|
|XRF Average Grade over 17 Holes||0.200||0.152|
Note: The XRF data is taken as point values and will not represent the true grade of the samples assayed. The elemental data is highly dependent on the location of which the beam intersects the rock. The device used to take the data points is an Olympus Vanta C Series handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and produces a beam spot diameter of up to 3mm. It is designed to achieve laboratory-quality results in the field and provides rapid and accurate elemental analysis and testing.
Zone 2 is located approximately 8 kilometers southeast of Zone 1 which is known to contain nickel, chromium, magnesium, and talc, based on previous drilling. Zone 2 consists of a bedrock outcrop covering an area of over 1.2 square kilometers. Both Zone 1 and Zone 2 are located along the 14 kilometer long Deep Purple magnetic anomaly.
The Company has also drilled two holes outside of the previously drilled Zones 1 and 2 and intersected nickel and chromium from surface in each of the holes. Drill Hole DD-22-11 was drilled from a small outcrop southeast of Zone 1, and in between the two larger outcrops known as Zone 1 and Zone 2. Drill Hole DD-22-11 averaged 0.223% nickel and 0.119% chromium over 2.5 meters. Drill Hole DD-22-12 was drilled from a small outcrop northwest of Zone 1 and averaged 0.178% nickel and 0.140% chromium over 6.6 meters. The distance between Drill Hole DD-22-12 which is the furthest hole drilled toward the northwest of the property, and Drill Hole FCD-22-13 which is toward the southeast portion of Zone 2, is approximately 10 kilometers.
The drill core for these two new Drill Holes was delivered to the Company’s facility in Quesnel and was scanned with an XRF analyzer. The following tables show the meter-by-meter XRF results of Drill Holes DD-22-11 and DD-22-12. As with all the previous drill holes mineralization was present from surface.
Magnesium values are not recorded with the XRF scanner so any magnesium values will have to await assay.
Perry Little, President and CEO of Green River Gold Corp. comments; “We are thrilled to see a continuation of the mineralization from surface everywhere we have drilled on Zone 2. We are also very excited to see similar results from two locations outside of Zone 1 and Zone 2. Green River has yet to drill a hole anywhere on the 14 kilometer long Deep Purple anomaly that does not have similar nickel and chromium values from surface and we have drilled various locations over a 10 kilometer stretch of the property so far. We remain hopeful that the mineralization will continue over the entire Deep Purple anomaly.”
Future Drilling Plans on Zone 1 and Zone 2
On October 1st, The Company started a new drilling program. Green River plans to drill a total of 10 Drill Holes on Zone 2 using a Winkie drill capable of reaching depths of 100 meters in ideal conditions. The Company will also use a Winkie drill to drill deeper on two Drill Holes that were started in Zone 1 last Spring and will be drilling one additional hole in Zone 1 as well. The backpack drilling completed so far has given Green River information that has been of great assistance in choosing the locations for the deeper holes. Backpack drilling will be continuing.
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.
Fontaine Lode Gold Exploration Plan:
Last year, the UAV magnetic survey identified many anomalies in the area. In 2022, the exploration crew will collect soil and rock samples from the anomalous 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 mineralized occurrences. The project geologist will summarize historical mining activities and previous exploration records. The historical records will be plotted on a map and verified during the 2022 field season.
