Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 2, 2024) - Lode Gold Resources Corp. (TSXV: LOD) (OTCQB: SBMIF) ("Lode Gold " or the "Company" and formerly Stratabound Minerals) is pleased to announce that it has recently acquired 100% ownership of two more claims covering 13.96 km2 (1,396 hectares) at the core of its McIntyre Brook Project in New Brunswick. This increases the 100%-owned ground from 1,461 hectares to 2,858 hectares. The Company intends to continue to earn in on the remaining options and expand holdings when opportunities arise.

Also, the Company announces that it is making the second year option payments on seven arms-length option agreements covering 19 claims comprising 58.41 km2 (5,841 hectares) located adjacent to and east of the Company's existing McIntyre Brook Claims.

The total payments due on the second year anniversary dates of these seven agreements total $209,000, which the Company will satisfy by payments of $77,000 in cash and $132,000 by the issuance of 4,400,000 common shares at a deemed price of $0.03 per share, premium to 30-day VWAP. Of note, certain property optionors chose to take all or part of their payments in shares, in a show of support and belief in the Company's new management team and its restructuring and growth strategic plans.

Wendy T. Chan, CEO and Director, commented, "We have highly prospective ground - located on the Appalachian Gold Trend (hosts New Found Gold's Queensway Project, Calibre's Valentine Lake Project, St. Barbara's Touquoy Mine); and, we are looking forward to initiating our exploration in the near future."

Shares issued as above will be subject to trading restrictions of 4 months and a day from the date of issuance.


Lode Gold is a Canadian exploration and development company with grassroots and advanced exploration properties in highly prospective and safe mining jurisdictions.

Its Golden Culvert and Win Projects, Yukon, covering 99.5 km2 across a 27-km strike length, are situated in a district-scale, high-grade-gold-mineralized trend within the southern portion of the Tombstone Gold Belt. Gold deposits and occurrences within the Belt include Fort Knox, Pogo, Brewery Creek and Dublin Gulch, and Snowline Gold's Valley target on its Rogue property in the Selwyn Basin.

Its McIntyre Brook Project, New Brunswick, covering 120 km2 and a 17-km strike length in the emerging Triple Fault Gold Belt, is surrounded by Puma Exploration's Williams Brook Project (5.55 g/t Au over 50m) and is hosted by orogenic rocks of similar age and structure as New Found Gold's Queensway Project.

The Company is also advancing its Fremont Gold development project in the historic Mother Lode Gold Belt of California where 50,000,000 oz of gold has been produced. Fremont, located ~500km north of Equinox Gold's Castle Mountain and Mesquite mines, has a PEA with an after-tax NPV(5%) of USD $217MM, a 21% IRR, 11-year LOM, averaging 118k ounces per annum at USD $1,750 gold. A sensitivity to the March 31, 2023 PEA at USD $2,000/oz gold gives an after-tax NPV(5%) of USD $370MM and a 31% IRR over an 11-year LOM. The project hosts an NI 43-101 resource of 1.16 Moz at 1.90 g/t Au within 19.0 MT Indicated, and 2.02 Moz at 2.22 g/t Au within 28.3 MT Inferred. The MRE evaluates only 1.4 km of the 4 km strike length of the Fremont property that features 4 gold-mineralized zones. Significantly, three step-out holes at depth hit structure, typical of orogenic deposits that often occur at depth. Fremont is located on private land in Mariposa, the original gold rush county and is 1.5 hours from Fresno, California. The property has year-round road access and is close to airports and rail. Please refer to the Fremont Gold project PEA dated March 31, 2023 under NI 43-101 guidelines. The technical report has been reviewed and approved by independent "Qualified Persons" Eugene Puritch, P.Eng., FEC, CET, and Andrew Bradfield, P.Eng. both of P&E, and Travis Manning, P.E. of KCA.

The Company also holds a pipeline of early-stage exploration projects including the critical mineral Captain Cobalt-Copper-Gold Deposit in New Brunswick and the Dingman Gold Project, Ontario.
