TERRAX MINERALS INC. CORPORATE UPDATE
Terrax Minerals Inc. has provided a corporate update and further information about its proposed 2019 exploration plans on its Yellowknife City gold (YCG) project.
David Suda, president and chief executive officer, stated: "We would like to thank our shareholders for their commitment and patience over the past 12 months. The company has gone through significant changes and achieved several key milestones. This work has brought us to a major inflection point in the company's history and has put Terrax on the verge of what could be a very significant discovery. We look forward to announcing more details regarding phase 1 of our exploration plans in the coming weeks."
Summer drilling top targets
In early 2019, Terrax identified four top-priority targets. Comprehensive review of the targets, including the use of historical data and 2019 assays of historical core, has led to a focus on deposit expansion at Crestaurum and Sam Otto, as well as the advancement of targeting on the North Giant extension within the Barney deformation corridor.
Barney deformation corridor
Earlier this year, Terrax confirmed the extension of gold mineralization on structures that hosted the Giant mine onto Terrax property. TerraX will conduct surface work, including geophysical and geochemical surveys for future drill targeting, as well as continuing its review of historical core data.
Joe Campbell, executive chairman and chief geologist, stated: "The extension of the Con-Giant mine structure onto our property is one of the most exciting exploration opportunities I have seen in my career. Large discoveries are few and far between and this is a rare chance to explore such great potential."
A drill program focused on high-grade deposit expansion will centre on the Crestaurum Main zone, the previously undrilled Crestaurum North and the Crestaurum hanging wall structures, particularly in the favourable yet underexplored area where they intersect with the Barney deformation corridor.
Sam Otto target
Stepout drilling will target Sam Otto South, which features higher-grade gold lenses within a 100-metre-wide bulk tonnage zone. The identification of this through-going structure has provided the possibility to expand the deposit significantly. There is potential to extend strike from one kilometre to four kilometres.
Analysis of the historical core acquired in late 2018 (news release March 18, 2019) is continuing to aid the company in discovery more quickly and efficiently in its core gold area. The company will selectively assay core in conjunction with surface work to define the extension of the Con-Giant trend onto its property, as well as provide vectors to drilling its other two targets.
The 2019 exploration program at the YCG project will build off the technical and operational successes achieved in 2018. The program is currently being finalized and details will be released in the coming weeks.

About the Yellowknife City gold project
The YCG project encompasses 783 square kilometres of contiguous land immediately north, south and east of the city of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Through a series of acquisitions, Terrax controls one of the six major high-grade gold camps in Canada. Being within 10 kilometres of the city of Yellowknife, the YCG project is close to vital infrastructure, including all-season roads, air transportation, service providers, hydroelectric power and skilled tradespeople.
The YCG project lies on the prolific Yellowknife greenstone belt, covering 70 kilometres of strike length along the main mineralized break in the Yellowknife gold district, including the southern and northern extensions of the shear system that hosted the high-grade Con and Giant gold mines. The project area contains multiple shears that are the recognized hosts for gold deposits in the Yellowknife gold district, with innumerable gold showings and recent high-grade drill results that serve to indicate the project's potential as a world-class gold district.
We seek Safe Harbor.
