Mawson Completes Maiden Drilling at Skellefteå North Gold Project in Sweden


Mawson Gold Limited (“Mawson”) or (the “Company” – https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/mawson-gold-ltd/) (TSX:MAW) (Frankfurt:MXR) (PINKSHEETS: MWSNF) announces completion of the maiden drilling program at the SkellefteÃ¥ North Project in Sweden. Six diamond drillholes were drilled for a total of 752.8 metres. The final four holes are reported here.

The maiden drill program at the Skellefteå Project focused on testing the proposed down-dip, and along-strike extension of an outcropping and previous undrilled mineralized-dyke system. Gold is intimately related to the arsenopyrite-bearing, sheeted-quartz-vein system hosted within the dyke, with gold occurring both within individual quartz veins, and outside of veins within their wall-rock material that also contains similarly elevated arsenopyrite and silica/quartz mineralogy. Four of six holes returned significant gold intercepts, identifying a high-grade gold-shoot which will be further explored in a future drilling program.


Drilling has defined gold mineralization, which can develop at extremely high grades (up to 132g/t Au), along 300 m of explored strike-length which remains open in all directions. The remaining four diamond drillholes of the six hole program (DB2203-6) targeted the western strike-extension and are reported here. 

o    All holes reported here intercepted the mafic-dyke host unit with highly-elevated arsenic values (> 400 ppm As) drillholes.

o    Better results from the final four holes reported here include drill holes DB2205 and DB2206 which intersected 5.7 m @ 1.2 g/t Au from 81.9 m, and 1.2 m @ 0.6 g/t Au from 56.35 m, respectively.

Program highlights include visible gold observed in three of six holes drilled at the Dalbacka Prospect, with best results including:

o    1.8 m at 28.4 g/t Au from 82.8m in DB2202, including 0.35 m at 132 g/t Au (reported June 13, 2022)

o   4.4 m at 4.8 g/t Au from 40m in DB2201, including 0.38 m at 24.3 g/t (reported June 13, 2022)

The next steps to define targets for the Stage 2 drill program include 3D-modelling of the system to define high-grade controls on gold mineralization, high resolution ground magnetics and surface geochemical sampling.

Mr. Fairhall, CEO, states: “The maiden drill program at Skellefteå has proven very high grades (up to 132 g/t Au) can develop at the project and outlined a structurally controlled gold system now drill tested over 300 m, with gold at surface found within 1.8 km strike. With over 7 Moz Au having been produced from within 22 km of the project, we are excited to further test and extend the potential on this property. Exploration is now ongoing to define high-grade controls on gold mineralization to define targets for a Stage 2 drill program. In the meantime, Mawson remains focused on its exploration and PEA work programs at Rajapalot with the PEA expected to be released in the coming weeks.”
