Gold Stock News - Exploits (CSE: NFLD) (OTCQX: NFLDF) Intercepts Near-Surface Visible Gold Averaging 12.55 g/t Au over 3.5 m at Bullseye


Toronto, Ontario - April 5, 2023 (Newsfile Corp.) ( Newswire) Exploits Discovery Corp. (CSE: NFLD) (OTCQX: NFLDF) (FSE: 634) ("Exploits" or the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results from drill holes numbered four, five and six, at its Bullseye property in Central Newfoundland. Visible gold grains have been observed within three of the six holes reported to date in close proximity to the Appleton Fault Zone as it tracks across Exploits' wholly owned mineral claims.

Highlights of BE-23-005:

  • Five occurrences of visible gold observed within veining encountered at 27.50 - 28.16 m depth downhole.
    • Intersected 12.55 g/t Au averaged over 3.50 m core-length located at a vertical depth of approximately 20 m below surface.
      • Including 68.39 g/t Au contribution from a 0.45 m sample where fine grains of visible gold were noted within a network of quartz veining.
    • Intersected 2.61 g/t Au over 1.15 m core-length located at a vertical depth of approximately 100 m below surface.

Ken Tylee, Vice President of Exploration: "It's impressive to see visible gold again in our fifth hole, 45 m away from the 14.2-gram intercept reported in our first hole drilled at Bullseye. We are excited to find these locally high-grade vein sets at such an early exploration stage coming from a property with no previous drilling history. Our drilling operations continue, and we plan on providing further updates as the assays arrive."

To date, a total of 15 holes consisting of 5,128 metres of NQ drilling, have been completed of the results-oriented drill program. This initial drilling program is designed to determine the potential for high grade gold mineralization along Exploits' 1.2 kilometre segment of the Appleton Fault Zone.

Bullseye Gold Target

Exploits' Bullseye gold target is fully permitted for exploration activities and located approximately three kilometres north of the Town of Appleton easily accessible via existing forestry roads and trail networks.

Bullseye is considered a highly prospective drilling target that borders New Found Gold's recent gold discoveries along the Appleton Fault Corridor. The property is directly contiguous to New Found Gold and Labrador Gold properties where over a dozen drill rigs have been recently operating.

Quality Assurance - Quality Control ("QA/QC")

All prospective NQ core is logged and delineated for sampling by an Exploits' professional geologist. The core is subsequently halved by a diamond-bladed core saw by Company's technicians with one half being placed in a bag with a unique sample identification. The remaining half core is retained within the Company's secure storage facility in Gander, Newfoundland. Sample bags are sealed and then shipped directly to Eastern Analytical Ltd. Certified standards and blanks are inserted at defined intervals following the Company's QA/QC documented procedures, representing approximately 5% of all samples sent for assaying. All core samples are analyzed at Eastern Analytical Ltd. of 403 Little Bay Road, Springdale, NL, a commercial laboratory that is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited and completely independent of Exploits Discovery Corp. Samples are analyzed using fire assay (30g) with AA finish (Au-FAA 30 ppb process) and/or a four-acid digestion followed by multi-element ICP-OES analysis. All samples with visible gold or assaying above 10.0 g/t Au are further assayed using metallic screen to mitigate the presence of the nugget effect of coarse gold.
