Exploration Update


RC Drill Program

The previously announced 5,000 metre (“m”) minimum Phase 2 reverse-circulation (“RC”) drill program is progressing ahead of schedule and under budget, at the Company’s 100%-owned Gold Basin project in Mohave County, Arizona. Phase 2 drilling is focused on resource definition at the Stealth, Red Cloud and PLM oxide gold deposits, and the largely undrilled strike gaps in between some of these zones. 4,459m in 37 holes have been completed since January 19th, with 10 holes drilled at PLM, 25 holes drilled at Red Cloud, and 5 holes drilled at Stealth. All holes have been sampled and submitted for assay, with preliminary results expected within one month. For more details on the drill program, please refer to the Company’s news release dated January 17th, 2023.


LiDAR Survey

Gold Basin will be collecting property-wide LiDAR data and aerial photography within the next 4-6 weeks, to assist in future NI 43-101 resource estimation and property-wide structural interpretation. Expected accuracies of the LiDAR data will be less than ±15cm vertical and ±30cm horizontal. The color aerial photography will be orthorectified to the LiDAR bare earth model to produce an orthophoto with a 20cm pixel resolution.


Ground Gravity Survey

Gold Basin has conducted a preliminary ground gravity survey this month over a 1.5×1.5km2 area surrounding the Cyclopic Deposit to further investigate the Iron Oxide Gold (“IOG”) deposit model for Gold Basin mineralization. A distinct geophysical signal of IOG and Iron Oxide Copper Gold (“IOCG”) deposits is a gravity high, and if such a feature is present at the Cyclopic Deposit, a regional ground gravity survey will be considered to evaluate the potential for near-surface IOG/IOCG deposits in underexplored regions of the Gold Basin project.
