POSITIVE RESULTS FROM INITIAL EXAMINATION OF RLX NORTH AND RLX SOUTH PROPERTIES, RED LAKE DISTRICT, ONTARIO
Straightup Resources Inc. has completed an initial field examination of its RLX North and RLX South properties, which are a part of its Red Lake district property package. Collectively, the properties form a contiguous land package of over 10,000 hectares partially surrounding Great Bear Resources Ltd.'s Sobel property. The RLX North property is interpreted to be underlain primarily by the 2.96 to 2.99 Ga Balmer assemblage, and RLX South is considered to be underlain by the 2.73 to 2.75 Ga Confederation assemblage.
Readers are cautioned that the company has no interest in or right to acquire any interest in any property other than the RLX North, RLX South and Belanger properties, and that mineral deposits, and the results of any mining thereof, on adjacent or similar properties are not indicative of mineral deposits on the company's properties or any potential exploitation thereof.
Tim Twomey, PGeo, an experienced geologist with respect to the Red Lake district geology and gold deposits, was engaged by the company to confirm historical surface showings, rank their significance and propose a follow-up program to begin evaluation of the properties. Mr. Twomey noted several positive aspects of the properties based on his visit to the properties, including:
- Both RLX North and RLX South properties are located on the strike extension of the Red Lake gold mines trend.
The geologic unconformity that is the locus of much of the gold mineralization in the district is located within the properties.
- The properties contain basalts from the Balmer assemblage, which hosts many of the Red Lake gold mineralization.
Felsic volcanic rocks are present within the properties, which provide exploration potential for gold deposits similar to those found at the Great Bear property.
- Both RLX North and RLX South are well located and contain the geologic units of interest in a more complex setting than previously understood, which may provide additional exploration potential as more work is conducted.
Mr. Twomey recommended that further work be conducted, including:
- Compiling, digitizing and interpreting all historical data on the properties;
- Conducting a detailed geological mapping and sampling program (including geology, structure, alteration, mineralization and geochemistry) in order to better understand the geologic complexity and provide better targeting for potential future exploration.
Matthew Coltura, president and chief executive officer, commented: "We are pleased with the results of Mr. Twomey's visit. His observations lend strong credence to the exploration potential at the RLX North and RLX South properties."
Based on mapped geology and historical regional geophysical surveys, the properties are situated along the same geological trend as the Red Lake gold mines, now operated by Evolution Mining Ltd., which are located approximately 10 kilometres and 17 km to the northwest of the RLX South and RLX North properties, respectively. Historic geophysical surveys suggest the possible presence of D2 folds and east-plunging anticlines on the properties, which may be important structural controls of mineralization (see news release dated June 11, 2020).
