Straightup samples up to 24.8 g/t Au at Belanger

2020-08-13 10:09 ET - News Release

Mr. Matthew Coltura reports


Straightup Resources Inc. has received sample results from a recent visit to the Belanger property. As part of the company's program to confirm historical information, Tim Twomey examined the property in July, 2020. As part of his examination, he took 22 grab and chip samples at three exposed mineral occurrences, known as trenches C, D and E. One rock sample was sent for whole-rock analysis, and results are pending. The assay results and short notes are tabulated in an attached table.

Gold mineralization is associated with disseminated pyrite and chalcopyrite in sheared mafic volcanics, felsic dikes and metasediments, as well as within deformed quartz veins.

The samples were analyzed by Actlabs in Thunder Bay, Ont., an ISO 17025-certified, full-service, high-capacity geochemistry laboratory. All samples were analyzed utilizing fire assay preparation techniques, followed by atomic absorption analysis. Three samples assayed higher than 5,000 parts per billion and were subsequently analyzed using fire assay preparation methods, followed by gravimetric analysis. Geochemical standards inserted in the sample stream reported accurate gold contents.

Chief executive officer Matthew Coltura commented: "We are extremely pleased with the excellent gold assays from Mr. Twomey's recent visit and sample results. It is particularly exciting to note the high grades encountered in these samples and the fact that gold mineralization occurs in several different rock types. Mr. Twomey's assay results and his structural observations mirror the historical comments regarding geology, alteration and gold mineralization of prior operators and the excellent potential for additional gold discoveries on the Belanger property."
