Mining Stock News: Tombill Mines Limited (TSXV: TBLL) Kicks off Exploration Program at Our Patented Property Within Ontario's Geraldton Gold Camp


Vancouver, British Columbia - January 11, 2021 (Newsfile Corp.) ( Newswire) Tombill Mines Limited (TSXV: TBLL) (the "Company" or "Tombill"), a mineral (mainly gold) company which owns various exploration and past-producing gold properties in the Geraldton and Beardmore Region, Ontario, is pleased to announce it has started its drilling program at Tombill Main Group, following the appointment of Forage M3 Drilling Services Inc. ("Forage M3") and Nordmin Engineering Ltd. ("Nordmin") to undertake drilling and exploration. The Company also welcomes the new strategic ownership of Greenstone Gold Mines ("Greenstone Gold"), comprising its Hardrock Project.


Adam Horne, CEO - commented; "Our technical team have rapidly mobilized onto site, and started the drilling program on the Tombill Main Group. This marks the first milestone of our Company's current exploration and development program, as we look to define the extension of strike of the F-zone, and identify further nearer surface targets. Coupled with the fresh and exciting news surrounding our neighbouring Hardrock Project with its two new owners -- Orion and Equinox -- we feel there is a lot to be enthusiastic about at Tombill and the Geraldton Gold Camp, and that the probability of progress is naturally greater and more accelerated."

Ian Stalker, Technical Advisor and Director, commented; "The Geraldton Gold Camp is fast becoming a reality. The combination of the start on Tombill's fully-funded Phase 1 drill and exploration plan coupled with the acceleration and evolution of the Hardrock Project marks real progress in the Geraldton Gold Camp becoming more germane and relevant as a gold producer."

Recent Purchase of Greenstone (Hardrock Project) by Orion and Equinox

The Company believes this is a very timely transaction that emphasises the sustainability and growth of the Geraldton Gold Camp, of which Tombill is an integral part.

Extensive investment, drilling, and exploration over the adjoining Hardrock Project has yielded gold mineralisation over 2 km from the ultimate west wall of the proposed open pit mine to Tombill Main Group's east boundary. Mineral resources established on the Hardrock Project to date:

Source: Greenstone, 06/28/19. The blue boundary marks the Tombill Main Group. The purple marks the Hardrock Project, owned by Greenstone. The striped portions mark mineral rights owned by Tombill, surface rights owned by Greenstone.

The permitted, construction and development-ready Hardrock Project, previously owned by Premier and Centerra was recently acquired by Equinox and Orion, respectively.

This new 50/50 venture between Equinox and Orion is expected to accelerate the construction of the Hardrock Project, and Equinox has announced that they hope to begin construction during the 2nd half of 2021. This bodes well for Tombill's adjacent property considering both the exploration potential and the relevance of the Geraldton Gold Camp.
