VANADIUMCORP COMPLETES 37 DRILL HOLES (9,598 M) AT LAC DORE, QUEBEC

Vanadiumcorp Resource Inc., further to its news release dated Sept. 20, 2019, completed its planned 32-hole (8,500 metres (m)) infill and extension drilling program, plus an additional five drill holes, for a total of 37 holes drilled (9,598 m) at its wholly owned Lac Dore vanadium property on Oct. 7, 2019. The Lac Dore vanadium property is located 27 kilometres (km) east-southeast from the city of Chibougamau, in Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory, Northern Quebec. The 2019 drill program targeted the company's Lac Dore vanadium prospect where historical drilling and surface channel sampling conducted between 1958 and 2013 have revealed the presence within property limits of a two-kilometre-long-by-200-metre-wide and minimum 200-metre-deep corridor hosting massive, semi-massive and disseminated bands of vanadium-bearing titanomagnetite (VTM) mineralization.

Highlights:

  • 35 holes drilled (total -- 9,196 m) within the outline of the corridor hosting banded VTM mineralization that was the focus of historic drilling, including:
    • 28 holes drilled to map the continuity of VTM mineralization between historic holes (7,642 m);
    • Seven holes drilled to twin historic holes (total -- 1,554 m);
  • Two holes drilled test the extensions of VTM mineralization to the northeast (total -- 402 m);
  • Banded semi-massive to massive titanomagnetite mineralization observed in all drill holes.

The 2019 exploration program at the Lac Dore vanadium property has been designed by the company with the aid of mining industry consultant InnovExplo of Val d'Or, Que. The exploration program is being managed by InnovExplo under the supervision of the Table Jamesienne de Concertation Miniere (TJCM) of Chibougamau, Que. The drilling was carried out by Miikan Drilling Ltd. of Chibougamau.

Continuing work at Lac Dore

Core logging and core sampling activities are currently under way by InnovExplo in Chibougamau. A first batch of core samples (including 26 batches of core samples and two batches of chips samples) has been expedited to SGS Canada Laboratories, an independent ISO 90001:2015 accredited laboratory facility located in Val d'Or, Que., for assaying and for selective Davis tube testing. Strict quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) protocols for the 2019 drill program, designed by InnovExplo, are being implemented in accordance with industry standards to ensure that upcoming core assay results are relevant and reliable and comply with National Instrument 43-101 requirements and follow CIM definition standards for mineral resource estimates. Analytical results from the 2019 drill program at Lac Dore will be disclosed by the company once received and validated by a qualified person (QP), per NI 43-101 standards of disclosure for mineral projects.

The company is also nearing the completion of its previously announced duplicate outcrop channel sampling program targeting 12 historic trenches excavated across strike of the Lac Dore vanadium prospect. To date, 483 m of repeat channel sampling (total -- 593 m) have been completed and 154 samples have been collected.

The resampling of select core from available historical drill holes will also be executed this fall. The same assaying and QA/QC protocols used in the current drilling will be used for the reassaying of historical holes and outcrop channels.

Results from the duplicate channel sampling program and resampling of historical core will be integrated, along with results from the 2019 drill program, into the global database for the Lac Dore vanadium project in preparation for future mineral resource estimation.

All new and historic drill hole collars, historic drill hole collars and historic trenches will be surveyed by a professional surveyor. A lidar survey will be performed during the fall to have an accurate three-dimensional surface image of the property.
