Gold Terra Announces Additional Drilling Results including 3.06 g/t Gold over 6 Metres on Yellorex North Zone, Con Mine Option Property


Gold Terra Resource Corp. (TSX-V: YGT; Frankfurt: TX0; OTC QX: YGTFF) (“Gold Terra” or the “Company” – https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/gold-terra-resource-corp/) is pleased to announce additional assay results from drill holes GTCM23-043 to 48, drilled on the Yellorex North zone during the Phase 1 winter drilling program on the Con Mine Option (“CMO”) Property in Yellowknife, NWT.  The drilling program was designed to expand the Yellorex North gold zone between surface and 300 metres below surface (see February 24, 2023 press release). The CMO property is under option from subsidiaries of Newmont Corporation and is acquirable by the Company upon fulfillment of certain conditions set out in the CMO agreement, as reported in the Company\-s news release dated November 22, 2021.

Chairman and CEO, Gerald Panneton, commented, \”The drilling results indicate a well-developed gold system in the Yellorex North zone and the expansion of the zone at depth which is open in all directions.  The zone will require additional drilling and will be part of our next drill program.  All ten completed holes on Yellorex North hit the targeted Campbell Shear and the results are highly encouraging and supporting additional drilling. The Campbell Shear structure is our highest priority target as the Con Mine produced historically more than 5 million ounces of high-grade gold (16 g/t Au). \”


Alteration, veining, and mineralization suggest a well-developed gold system in each drilled hole with an indication of both an upper zone (in hole GTCM23-045) and a deeper zone (in holes GTCM22-039 and GTCM23-048) of mineralization.

Hole GTCM23-045 intersected: 1.7 g/t Au over 4.34 metres from 172-176.34 metres including 3.96 g/t Au over 1.36 metres from 173.5-174.86 metres.  GTCM23-045 showed smoky quartz veining with strong sericite alteration, significant pyrite and needle-like arsenopyrite mineralization, and successfully expanded the shallower portion of Yellorex North zone.

GTCM23-048 intersected 4.31 g/t Au over 2 metres from 383-385 metres and 3.06 g/t Au over 6 metres from 392-398 metres. GTCM23-048 contained abundant quartz veining and exhibited strong mineralization consisting of pyrite, arsenopyrite, stibnite and trace sphalerite. This hole successfully expanded the deeper portion of Yellorex North to depth and shows that the strong mineralization system continues at depth and remains open in three (3) directions.

Holes GTCM23-045 and 048 represent distinct lenses of mineralization within the Campbell Shear at Yellorex North. As it appears that the southern extend of Yellorex North is truncated by the oblique-angled Pud Fault, it is evident that an additional exploration target exists ~300 metres to the south-southeast along the primarily strike-slip fault, where it is postulated that the southern portion of Yellorex North has been off-set to. It means that the zone is open on the other side and will be tested again in the near future.  A long section showing 2023 drilling is presented in Figure 1.    A cross-section showing holes GTCM23-045 and 048 is shown in Figure 2.

Three holes, GTCM23-043, 046 and 047 intersected zones of anomalous gold mineralization.   Hole GTCM23-043 intersected anomalous gold such as 0.51 g/t Au over 9 metres from 256-265 metres and 1.65 g/t Au over 1.0 metre from 277-278 metres indicating the hole represents a narrow gap between the two mineralized horizons within the Campbell Shear.  GTCM23-046 and 047 were designed to explore the northern extents of Yellorex North in an area that has seen little historical drilling. Both holes successfully encountered the Campbell Shear and returned 17.5 metres and 20 metres respectively of anomalous low-grade gold. These broad anomalous zones are interpreted to be the marginal, low-grade halos of high-grade zones.

GTCM23-044 was “faulted” and intersected the footwall zone of the Campbell Shear as the hole was targeting the Yellorex North zone nearby the Pud Fault. The upper portion of the Campbell Shear was offset some 300 metres to the east along the Pud Fault.

The Pud Fault is a post-mineralization feature and was intersected as a 15-centimetre-wide fault gouge at 318 metres. As this program has defined high-grade gold adjacent to the Pud Fault, the faulted-offset of the Yellorex North zone nearby to the east has emerged as a strong target for future exploration.  This target is notably located in an area that has seen little historical drilling.

In addition, GTCM23-042 intersected 5.3 g/t Au over 6.43 metres and was designed to verify and add depth extension to historical high-grade mineralization encountered in the Yellorex North zone of the Campbell Shear. See March 3, 2023 press release).

Ten near surface drill holes have been completed on Yellorex North. The zone is only 1 kilometer south of existing infrastructure, the C1 shaft, and above the level 2300. It was previously tested only by one hole in 2022, GTCM22-039, (see August 3, 2022 press release) which returned two mineralized zones returning 3.31 g/t Au over 6.00 metres from 306.0 to 312.0 metres and including 5.39 g/t Au over 2.0 metres from 309.00 to 311.00 metres, and 2.18 g/t Au over 5.0 metres from 324.00 metres to 329.00 metres.

Information Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Therefore, investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource could ever be mined economically. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of “Measured Mineral Resources,” “Indicated Mineral Resources,” or “Inferred Mineral Resources” will ever be upgraded to a higher category. The Mineral Resource estimates contained herein may be subject to legal, political, environmental or other risks that could materially affect the potential development of such mineral resources. Refer to the Technical Report, once filed, for more information with respect to the key assumptions, parameters, methods and risks of determination associated with the foregoing.

Cautionary Note to United States Investors

The Company prepares its disclosure in accordance with the requirements of securities laws in effect in Canada, which differ from the requirements of U.S. securities laws. Terms relating to Mineral Resources in this news release are defined in accordance with NI 43-101 under the guidelines set out in CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, adopted by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Council on May 19, 2014, as amended (\”CIM Standards\”). The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the \”SEC\”) has adopted amendments effective February 25, 2019 (the \”SEC Modernization Rules\”) to its disclosure rules to modernize the mineral property disclosure requirements for issuers whose securities are registered with the SEC under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934. As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC will now recognize estimates of \”Measured Mineral Resources\”, \”Indicated Mineral Resources\” and \”Inferred Mineral Resources\”, which are defined in substantially similar terms to the corresponding CIM Standards. In addition, the SEC has amended its definitions of \”Proven Mineral Reserves\” and \”Probable Mineral Reserves\” to be substantially similar to the corresponding CIM Standards.

U.S. investors are cautioned that while the foregoing terms are \”substantially similar\” to corresponding definitions under the CIM Standards, there are differences in the definitions under the SEC Modernization Rules and the CIM Standards. Accordingly, there is no assurance any Mineral Resources that the Company may report as \”Measured Mineral Resources\”, \”Indicated Mineral Resources\” and \”Inferred Mineral Resources\” under NI 43-101 would be the same had the Company prepared the Mineral Resource estimates under the standards adopted under the SEC Modernization Rules. In accordance with Canadian securities laws, estimates of \”Inferred Mineral Resources\” cannot form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies, except in limited circumstances where permitted under NI 43-101.
