Sassy soil samples up to 1,432 ppb Au at Gander North

2021-12-08 09:15 ET - News Release

Mr. Mark Scott reports


Sassy Resources Corp. has discovered a multikilometre-long gold and copper anomaly at the company's newly named Viking target at Gander North adjacent to the GRUB Line in the heart of the Gander gold district. These results, which include very high gold-in-soil assays, suggest the presence of a nearby mineralizing source.


  • Initial C-horizon soil geochemistry results (1,663 samples) greatly build on historic Noranda work with a coincident gold and copper-in-soil anomaly now covering the entire upper section of the Viking target over a northeast-southwest length of 4.25 km and a northwest-southeast dimension (width) of up to 1.5 km;
  • Significantly, this anomaly is open for expansion to a very broad area to the southeast where assay results are pending for approximately 1,000 additional soil samples, some of which were collected by GroundTruth Exploration's deep penetrating GT Probe;
  • Notably, in this southeast direction nearly two km from the initial grid is the historic Jonathan's Third Pond copper showing which is described in historic assessment reports as a pervasive zone of silicification and alteration with pyrite-chalcopyrite-bornite mineralization;
  • Sassy prospectors have confirmed and extended the Jonathan's Third Pond occurrence for another kilometre toward the south-southwest where it remains open for further expansion (assays pending);
  • Highlight C-horizon gold-in-soil results include individual samples which returned values of 1,432 parts per billion gold (1.43 grams per tonne) and 1,154 ppb Au (1.15 g/t). These results are considered very high-grade for gold-in-soil in Newfoundland;
  • C-horizon copper-in-soil samples returned values up to 245.5 parts per million copper, also considered very significant for soils in Newfoundland;
  • The Viking target, which formed part of the option agreement with Vulcan Minerals announced Feb. 12, 2021, covers 20.5 square km. This is still only 4 per cent of the entire Gander North project, underscoring the extent of discovery potential within this very prospective 490-square-kilometre land package owned 100 per cent by Sassy;
  • Plans are being discussed for RAB (rotary air blast) drilling at the Viking target in preparation for a maiden diamond drilling program.

Mark Scott, Sassy's president and chief executive officer, commented: "These initial results bode very well for our upcoming Gander Gold spinout with Feb. 1, 2022, being the share distribution date of record (refer to Oct. 15, 2021, news release) for Sassy shareholders. Gander North is one of eight Sassy projects going into Gander Gold, collectively covering 2,257 square km, and we will have early exploration results to report on each of these projects thanks to an aggressive ongoing campaign funded by the Gander Gold subsidiary. Following the spinout, Sassy will own approximately 35 million shares of Gander Gold in addition to its Foremore project in the Eskay Camp."

Ian Fraser, PGeo, Sassy's vice-president of exploration, stated: "Soil grids utilizing 100-metre spaced lines were designed to test the known northeast structural trend associated with the GRUB line and parallel-subparallel lineaments recognized within the Gander zone. Phase 1 soil results have identified a few spectacular sample results as evidenced by 1,432 ppb Au, trends and anomalous zones occurring within a northeast orientation, but also suggest the historic gold-in-till trend identified by Noranda is significantly larger and remains open. Currently the source of this gold and copper dispersion in tills is unknown. We look forward to identifying the source. Phase 1 soil results from the Viking target are very encouraging and we look forward to reporting additional results from all programs the company is currently undertaking in Newfoundland."

Shawn Ryan on Viking target and Gander North

Sassy technical adviser Mr. Ryan added: "These initial soil sampling results at Sassy's Viking target at Gander North are comparable to initial soils from the Queensway and Kingsway projects. The results to date are clearly outlining new and very exciting multistation gold hits that warrant follow-up work to advance them to the drill stage. This is the same strategy I used to help outline the initial anomalous trends at Labrador Gold's Kingsway project. I look forward to seeing more soil work done at Gander North as we have many more promising structures to cover."

Quality assurance/quality control

Gander Gold Corp. has contracted the services of GroundTruth Exploration to conduct its soil geochemistry programs in Newfoundland. Soil samples are collected at predetermined sites, placed in soil sample bags and all metadata associated with a sample is recorded. Once sorted and logged, samples are shipped to Eastern Analytical in Springdale, Nfld., for sample preparation. At Eastern Analytical individual samples are dried and sieved and 15-gram splits are prepared and then shipped by courier to Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Ltd. in Vancouver, B.C., for analyses. Eastern Analytical and Bureau Veritas are ISO/IEC 17025-certified laboratories and independent of Gander Gold. At Bureau Veritas the 15-gram splits are partially digested by aqua regia digestion and analyzed for gold plus 36 additional elements by ICP-ES/MS (method AQ201). GroundTruth Exploration crews took a field duplicate every 25th sample and these field duplicates were inserted into the sample stream to monitor the quality of analyses for the soil sampling program.
