Carlyle Commodities Corp. Contracts Consulting Team to Conduct Next Phase Drilling Campaign at Newton Gold Project
The Newton Gold Project contains an historical estimated mineral resource of 1.6 million ounces gold and 7.7 million ounces silver, at the inferred confidence level as reported in a NI 43-101 technical report dated effectively December 19, 2012, entitled "Technical Report on the Initial Mineral Resource Estimate for the New Project, Central British Columbia, Canada", prepared by Reno Pressacco, M.Sc.(A), P.Geo., of Roscoe Postle and Associates Ltd.
- The Newton Project is a large, bulk tonnage, low - to intermediate-sulphidation, epithermal gold deposit with nearly 30,000 m of drilling exploring and developing the historical resource, primarily between 2009-2012.
- Newton encompasses more than 24,000 Ha and contains an historical resource of 1.6 million oz Au & 7.7 million oz Ag estimated at the inferred confidence level. Carlyle believes Newton represents an outstanding development project.
- Mineralization occurs within an 800 x 400 m area defined by drilling to depths of 560 m, with the majority of holes not exceeding 300m depth.
- Underlying the deposit, a large IP anomaly measures 4 km x 2 km and covers an area greater than 7 sq/km - yet the historical resource occupies slightly over 0.5 sq/km or just 7% of the anomaly.
- Gold and associated base metal mineralization precipitated in extensive zones of strong quartz-sericite alteration as well as in mafic volcanic and clastic sedimentary rocks and along fault and fracture zones.
- The alteration types and metal associations at Newton are similar to large epithermal gold deposits elsewhere in British Columbia including Blackwater (Artemis Gold Inc), New Prosperity (Taseko Mines Ltd) and Brucejack (Pretium Resources Inc) deposits. The very large Blackwater Gold Project is the most proximal of those deposits located approximately 185 km northeast of Newton, where it is one of Canada's largest open-pit gold deposits and one of the world's largest environmental assessment (EA) approved gold development projects. Blackwater has a measured+indicated resource estimated at 11.7 million ounces Au and 122 million ounces of Ag (Blackwater Gold Project British Columbia NI 43-101 Technical Report on Pre-Feasibility Study: authored by Sue Bird, Daniel Fontaine, Tracy Meintjes, Marc Schulte and John Thomas, August 26, 2020; www.artemisgoldinc.com).
The Newton Technical Report historic estimate is the most recent mineral resource estimate for the Newton Gold-Silver Project and was prepared by Amarc. No qualified person ("QP") (as such term is defined in NI 43-101) working for the Company has done sufficient work to classify the historic estimate as a current mineral resource, and the Company is treating the estimate as an historical mineral resource. The Company also does not imply that information or results from the Newton Gold-Silver Project, either at present or in the future, will be similar to that of Artemis' Blackwater project or other large epithermal projects.
