STRIKEPOINT GOLDS PHASE 2 DRILLLING PROGRAM UNDERWAY AT THE HIGH-GRADE, WILLOUGHBY GOLD PROPERTY

By | 2019, News

Vancouver, British Columbia — August 13 2019 StrikePoint Gold Inc. (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) (SKP:TSX.V)(STKXF:OTCQB) is pleased to announce commencement of its Phase II drilling program of 1,000 metres at the Wilby zone on their 100%-owned Willoughby property located near Stewart BC in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle, seven kilometres east of Ascot Resource’s advanced-stage Red Mountain Gold Project.   The company’s Phase I program is complete, with eight holes that targeted the North Zone, located 400m northwest of the Wilby Zone.

The objective of the Phase II program is to expand and test the 1450 and Northern deep lenses at the Wilby zone, confirming and stepping out from multiple wide, high-grade historic intercepts. Gold and silver mineralization at Willoughby are hosted within Jurassic volcanic and sedimentary rocks, as well as ‘Goldslide Suite’ intrusive phases, similar to the adjacent Red Mountain Deposit and other significant deposits in Northwestern British Columbia.

Highlights of historical intercepts from Wilby include (drilled lengths, true width estimated to be 60 to 90% of interval):

  • 89-04: 7.06 g/t Au and 42.80 g/t Ag over 11.50 meters
  • 94-20: 4.40 g/t Au and 17.97 g/t Ag over 6.0 meters
  • 95-51: 20.45 g/t Au and 42.84 g/t Ag over 6.80 meters
  • 95-53: 12.66 g/t Au and 59.43 g/t Ag over 12.0 meters
  • 96-71: 10.54 g/t Au and 5.88 g/t Ag over 5.10 meters
  • 96-88: 7.62 g/t Au and 1.43 g/t Ag over 11.70 meters

StrikePoint CEO, Shawn Khunkhun, states “This is the first drill program to be carried out at the Wilby Zone since 1996. Historic drill holes were limited to near-outcrop, short holes.  StrikePoint’s goal is to demonstrate that the mineralised system is more extensive than previously indicated.  This part of Northern British Columbia has an enviable endowment of high-grade gold and silver mines and deposits.  Our aim is to build a resource that moves this project towards economic viability. “

Willoughby project

The project occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometres east of the advanced-staged Red Mountain Deposit that was recently acquired by Ascot Resources from IDM Mining. The property is underlain by Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcanic and sedimentary rocks that have been intruded by an early Jurassic-aged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, similar to and potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at Red Mountain. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of primarily pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite, native gold and. Eight gold and silver mineralized zones have been identified to-date over a one-kilometer strike-length mineralization trend.

STRIKEPOINT GOLD EXPANDS SURFACE EXPLORATION PROGRAM INCLUDING: TRENCHING AND CHANNEL SAMPLING

By | 2019, News

Vancouver, British Columbia — Aug 7, 2019 StrikePoint Gold Inc. (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) (SKP:TSX.V)(STKXF:OTCQB) announces that due to encouraging new exposures of sulphide mineralization and prospective alteration and intrusive rocks, that and expanded surface sample program of hand-trenching and channel sampling has commenced at its 100%-owned Willoughby gold Property (“Property’”). Significant melting of alpine glaciers has occurred since the last significant exploration program over 20 years ago, particularly on the north and west sides of the Property. Willoughby is located near Stewart, BC in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle, seven kilometres east of Ascot Resource’s advanced-stage Red Mountain Gold Project.

StrikePoint is currently drilling the Property; at the time of this release, six holes for 800m completed at the high-grade North Zone. 194 core samples from the initial two drill holes have been shipped for ‘rush’ analysis, as well an initial batch of 47 surface samples.

“New exposures of outcrop with strong pyrite and sphalerite mineralization, occurring as disseminated, stock, replacement and massive sulphide pods and veins is very encouraging to our technical team,” said StrikePoint CEO, Shawn Khunkhun. “The presence of copper and zinc sulphides correlates with high-grade precious metal values at the North Zone where we are currently drilling. Expanding our surface exploration program should allow for a quick turnaround of assays prior to the end of the field season in the autumn. These areas are located in much gentler terrain than the steep topography where we are currently drilling.”

Willoughby Project

Gold and silver mineralization at Willoughby are hosted within Jurassic volcanic and sedimentary rocks, associated with a ‘Goldslide Suite’ intrusive phase, similar to the adjacent Red Mountain Deposit.

The Project occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometres east of the advanced-staged Red Mountain Deposit that was recently acquired by Ascot Resources from IDM Mining and 20km northeast of StrikePoint’s Porter Silver Property. The Willoughby Property is underlain by Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcanic and sedimentary rocks that have been intruded by an early Jurassic-aged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, similar to and potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at Red Mountain. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of primarily pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite, native gold and. Eight gold and silver mineralized zones have been identified to-date over a one-kilometer strike-length mineralization trend.

QA/QC and Qualified Person

Samples for the 2019 program are collected by experienced geologists and technicians, placed in sealed bags and shipped to SGS Labs in Burnaby, BC for sample preparation, gold and multi-element ICP analysis. A Quality Control/Quality Assurance program including the insertion of Standards and Blanks has been implemented. The 2019 Exploration Program is performed under the supervision of Marilyne Lacasse, P.Geo, Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

The objective of the Phase I program is to expand and test the North Zone, following up and stepping out from multiple high-grade historic intercepts. Previous explorers, which included limited underground drifting and drilling was locally focused, dominantly within only 50 meters of surface, with holes oriented towards the east.  New mineralized exposure from melting alpine glaciers, coupled with an improved understanding of the structural geological setting has helped refine the drill plan, including westerly oriented drill holes.

Gold and silver mineralization at Willoughby are hosted within Jurassic volcanic and sedimentary rocks, associated with a ‘Goldslide Suite’ intrusive phase, similar to the adjacent Red Mountain Deposit.

Select highlights from the North zone historical drill hole intercepts include the following:

  • 89-06: 53.21 g/t Au and 211.09 g/t Ag over 5.5 meters
  • 94-15: 113.68 g/t Au and 121.77 g/t Ag over 3.0 meters
  • 94-26: 20.08 g/t Au and 1,250.83 g/t Ag over 3.0 meters
  • 95-36: 352.22 g/t Au and 194.64 g/t Ag over 2.9 meters
  • U96-02: 120.30 g/t Au and 2,434.84 g/t Ag over 3.5 meters

StrikePoint CEO, Shawn Khunkhun, states “StrikePoint’s aggressive drill program at this high-grade gold-silver system is the first for 25 years.   Our goal is to confirm the tenor of mineralisation defined by previous work. And secondly to expand the footprint of these outcropping zones. Our geological team has extensive experience working in the Golden Triangle which will allow us to efficiently assess and grow this neglected gold-silver system.  Surface mapping and sampling programs are underway, with the rock samples shipped for assay.  We are excited that prospective rocks with strong sulphide mineralization has been identified in areas of recently melted glaciers. “

STRIKEPOINT GOLD INC. ANNOUNCES 2019 PHASE 1 DRILLING AND SURFACE EXPLORATION PROGRAM AT THE HIGH-GRADE WILLOUGHBY GOLD PROPERTY

By | 2019, News

Vancouver, British Columbia — July 16 2019 StrikePoint Gold Inc. (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) (SKP:TSX.V)(STKXF:OTCQB) is pleased to announce plans its Phase 1 2019 exploration program of 1,000 metres of diamond drilling on their 100%-owned Willoughby property located near Stewart BC in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle, seven kilometres east of Ascot Resource’s  advanced-stage Red Mountain Gold Project.

The objective of the Phase 1 program is to expand and test the North zone, following up and stepping out from multiple high-grade historic intercepts. Previous explorers, which included limited underground drifting and drilling was locally focused, dominantly within only 50 meters of surface.  Gold and silver mineralization at Willoughby is hosted within early-Jurassic volcanic and sedimentary rocks, associated with a ‘Goldslide Suite’ intrusive phase, similar to the adjacent Red Mountain Deposit,

Selected highlights from the North zone historical drill hole intercepts include the following:

  • 89-06: 53.21 g/t Au and 211.09 g/t Ag over 5.5 meters
  • 94-15: 113.68 g/t Au and 121.77 g/t Ag over 3.0 meters
  • 94-26: 20.08 g/t Au and 1,250.83 g/t Ag over 3.0 meters
  • 95-36: 352.22 g/t Au and 194.64 g/t Ag over 2.9 meters
  • U96-02: 120.30 g/t Au and 2,434.84 g/t Ag over 3.5 meters

StrikePoint CEO, Shawn Khunkhun, states

“The Golden Triangle is renowned for hosting some of the highest-grade gold deposits in the world. The Willoughby property’s historic grades are exceptional. It’s our goal to leverage the technical expertise of the newly appointed StrikePoint team to expand the high-grade historic intercepts. Previous exploration was limited to two areas, leaving an opportunity to increase the mineralization trend along strike and at depth.  The recently identified geological interpretation at the adjacent Red Mountain Deposit of post-mineralization high-amplitude folds has helped develop a new interpretation at Willoughby of folded, tabular mineralization.

In conjunction with diamond drilling, a surface mapping and prospecting program will be conducted in area of recent ice recession along the one-kilometer strike-length known mineralized trend. The surface work will commence immediately with drilling scheduled to follow by month end.

 

Willoughby project

The project occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately 7 kilometres east of the advanced-staged Red Mountain Deposit that was recently acquired by Ascot Resources from IDM Mining. The property is underlain by Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcanic and sedimentary rocks that have been intruded by an early Jurassic-ageaged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, similar to and potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at Red Mountain. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of  primarily pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite, native gold and.

STRIKEPOINT ACQUIRES THE HIGH-GRADE WILLOUGHBY PROPERTY IN THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE

By | 2019, News

Vancouver, BC – April 17, 2019 – Further to its news release dated March 20, 2019, StrikePoint Gold Inc. (SKP:TSX.V)(STKXF:OTCQB) is pleased to announce that it has closed on the acquisition of the Willoughby Property from ArcWest Exploration.

The property is situated about 30 kilometres east of Stewart, B.C., and 20 kilometres northeast of Strikepoint’s Porter property.

Key factors at Willoughby include:

  • 4,625 metres of diamond drilling completed on the property in the early 1990s which defined mineralization over a one-kilometre strike length;
  • This trend remains open on either end, and recent deglaciation has exposed prospective ground that would have been inaccessible to previous explorers;
  • Historic drill results have included 20.5 metres grading 24.99 grams per tonne gold and 184.22 grams per tonne silver, and 11.7 metres grading 40.11 grams per tonne gold and 109 grams per tonne silver, both from the North zone target;
  • 13.0 metres grading 13.37 grams per tonne gold and 63.43 grams per tonne silver drilled in the Main zone target;
  • Additional five target zones on the property have all returned significant gold and silver grades in drill core or channel samples at surface;
  • The site is drill ready and serviceable via the company’s existing camp at the Porter project. Exploration permits are under way, having been started by the previous property owners;
  • The closest nearby analogue to Willoughby is the Red Mountain deposit located seven kilometres to the west. Red Mountain has a National Instrument 43-101 mineral resource estimate of 1,827,900 tonnes of measured resources grading 8.92 grams per tonne gold, 943,400 tonnes of indicated resources grading 5.95 grams per tonne gold for a total of 704,600 ounces gold combined (June, 2018, resource update; Arsenault/Hamilton). Like Red Mountain, mineralization is focused along the contact with Jurassic-aged Goldslide intrusive rocks. Mineralization hosted on the adjacent properties is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization hosted on the Willoughby property. The company is not able to verify the results of the Red Mountain deposit and there can be no assurances that the company will obtain similar results from exploration activities on the Willoughby property.

The securities issued as part of this transaction with bear a restrictive legend expiring on August 16, 2019.
