Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – September 21, 2022) – Aurwest Sources Company (CSE: AWR) (“Aurwest” or the “Firm“) broadcasts closing drilling outcomes from its Part 2 drilling program accomplished at its Paradise Lake gold challenge in Central Newfoundland. Part 2 consisted of seven holes totaling 1,050-meters, to follow-up intervals of low-grade gold mineralization intersected by Part 1 drilling. The drilling program at Paradise Lake consisted of 18 drill holes totaling 3,796m.
Highlights of the drilling program are:
Gap DDH PL-22-12 intersected 5.43 g/t Au over a 0.5m core interval in PL-22-12.
4 of the seven drill holes accomplished as a part of the Part 2 drilling intersected 16 intervals with larger than 0.1g/t gold over core intervals starting from 0.5 to 10.90m.
The 18 gap (3,796m) program returned 50 intervals with gold focus in extra of 0.1g/t over core intervals starting from 0.5 to 10.9 m widths.
Greater grade intervals of are; 6.21g/t Au over 0.5m in DDH PL-22-01, 6.00g/t Au over 0.5m and seven.75g/t Au over 0.5m core intervals in DDH PL-22-07and 5.43g/t Au over a 0.5m core interval in DDH PL-22-12.
Native gold was noticed in quartz veins in DDH PL-22-07.
Holes PL-22-01 and PL-22-16 are interpreted to have intersected the identical mineralized zone estimated to be over a strike size of 250 meters beneath Twin Ponds. This zone is open to the East and West.
Mr. Colin Christensen acknowledged, “The drilling intersected a number of widths of gold mineralization starting from close to floor to depth of roughly 180m beneath floor localized alongside the contacts of the Twin ponds syenite intrusions. The a number of episodes of gold bearing quartz veins counsel a as soon as energetic hydrothermal middle carrying native gold, arsenopyrite and pyrite mineralization. It’s believed that secondary faults/buildings intersecting the primary Northeast tending intrusive hall might also include vital gold mineralization as is supported by drilling outcomes and the latest discovery of gold mineralization in outcrop 4.5km northwest of Paradise Lake.”
Part 2 Drilling:
The goal examined by the drilling program is a part of an almost 10 km lengthy pattern recognized from floor samples that returned gold focus starting from 0.05 to 144.7g/t gold. Quite a few chargeability targets stay to be examined, recognized from the 2021 IP geophysical survey.
Gap PL-22-16 intersected a ten.9-meter core interval of 0.21 g/t Au. This zone of shallow pyrite-arsenopyrite mineralization is obvious within the 2021 IP geophysical outcomes as a chargeability excessive. The host rock consists of varied phases of syenite, diorite and mafic dykes with native xenoliths of different intrusive and felsic volcanic rocks. Alteration consists of variable levels of fine-grained interstitial chlorite-carbonate-Ok-feldspar-pyrite and quartz-sericite-ankerite. Quartz veins differ from laminated, large, breccia and stockwork-like. They’re typically vuggy and include fine-grained pyrite and arsenopyrite. Solely veins that include vital arsenopyrite-pyrite content material returned vital gold concentrations. Mineralized intervals containing larger than 0.1g/t gold from Part 2 program are set out in Desk-1 beneath:

Notes: The cut-off chosen for figuring out the weighted common for the mineralized intervals was 0.1g/t gold. No limitation positioned on the pattern interval. Gold grades are rounded. Intervals reported in desk are core intervals and don’t signify true width.
PL-22-12 (161m, 291 o, -45 o) is positioned 50m south of collar PL-22-01/02. It focused a 400m vast chargeability excessive beneath the lake and corresponding gold grades and pyrite-arsenopyrite intersected in gap PL-22-01/02. The outlet collared into cross bedded siltstone from 22-25.3m depth. Syenite was then intersected till finish of gap with at the very least 3 distinct chilled margins. Eleven zones from 1-10m vast include hint quantities, as much as 5% fine-grained pyrite-arsenopyrite, disseminated, fracture filling and in veins as much as 6cm vast. Alteration within the syenite consists of variable Ok-feldspar-chlorite-leucoxene-ankerite and veins of quartz-chlorite-ankerite/calcite.
PL-22-13 (164.2m, 070 o, -45 o) is positioned on the northwest facet of Twin Pond concentrating on an space of angular quartz veins with as much as 144 g/t Au. The outlet collared into syenite at 22.2m and continued till the tip of the opening. Interbedded bedded greywacke/siltstone was intersected over the core interval from 73 to150m. An intermediate dyke happens from 69-73m. Solely hint quantities of pyrite happen in reasonably altered syenite and siltstone. Nice-grained pyrite happens as disseminations, fracture fill, and in breccias/ fault zones as much as 1.5m vast. Alteration consists of reasonable, interstitial to pervasive pink Ok-feldspar, chlorite-leucoxene-calcite-ankerite.
PL-22-14 (159m, 040 o, -45 o) is positioned 160m west of PL-22-13. It focused a broad constructive resistivity signature. The outlet collared into sediments consisting of cross bedded greywacke and maroon siltstone till finish of gap. Bedding seems steeply dipping to the east. The syenite contact was not intersected as was anticipated. Two mafic dykes have been intersected at 20 and 70m depth and are 1 and three.5m vast. Solely hint quantities of fine-grained pyrite and chalcopyrite have been intersected within the mafic dykes.
PL-22-15 (155m, 105 o, -45 o) is positioned 290m west of collar PL-22-01/02. It focused the mineralization intersected in gap PL-22-01/02, and chargeability excessive beneath North Twin Pond. It collared into siltstone from 12-17m depth. Syenite was intersected from 17-34m, 35-41m, and 43-155m depth, every separated by skinny bedded siltstone and greywacke. The intrusions vary from glassy pink to gray plag-phyric and medium grained holocrystalline. Quite a few zones include hint quantities of fine-grained, disseminated pyrite and in quartz veins 1-5cm thick. Alteration consists of patchy, pink Ok-feldspar-chlorite-leucoxene-ankerite alteration.
PL-22-16: (137m, 115o/-45 o) is positioned on the west facet of North Twin Pond drilling southeast in the direction of gap PL-22-12 and 100m south of PL-22-15 alongside the identical linear syenite intrusion. The outlet collared into interbedded green-grey wacke and maroon argillite from 8.7-58m depth and syenite intrusion to finish of gap. Pyrite-arsenopyrite ranges from hint quantities as much as 7% interval inside the syenites over broad intervals as much as 15m. Fault zones and brecciated syenite include arsenopyrite mineralization associated to quartz veining. Alteration consists of pervasive k-feldspar with zones of sturdy ankerite, sericite and chlorite.
PL-22-17: (122m, 295o/-45 o) is positioned roughly 50m south of gap PL-22-07 testing the identical mineralized construction noticed in PL-22-07. The outlet collared in syenite and intersected 3 distinct syenites earlier than contacting interbedded green-grey wacke and maroon argillite. 5 weakly mineralized zones are recognized. Primarily based on analytical outcomes, no intervals contained larger that 100 pb gold. Quartz veins are very skinny and include hint quantities of pyrite. Alteration is patchy and consists of k-spar, sericite, chlorite and ankerite, the place ankerite and sericite is native, and chlorite and k-spar are extra distinguished.
PL-22-18: (116m, 025o/-45 o) is positioned on the identical pad as gap PL-22-07 drilling northeast. The outlet collared into syenite at 9.8m depth. Mineralization is hosted primarily inside a darker diorite altered by quartz-calcite-ankerite-pyrite-arsenopyrite associated to sturdy fracturing. It additionally accommodates pervasive Ok-feldspar and sericite with native ankerite. It accommodates 1-3% pyrite-arsenopyrite mineralization over a number of zones as much as 3m vast. The diorite has a faulted decrease contact internet hosting native arsenopyrite mineralization.
Property vast prospecting and mapping on the Miguel’s Lake, Stony Caldera, and Paradise Lake Initiatives started in Might. In whole 530 rock samples have been collected from outcrop, subcrop and angular float. Outcomes have been acquired for 306 of those samples, 29 of which returned >50 ppb Au as much as 4.03 g/t Au. Prospecting has recognized a number of areas of outcropping quartz veining and pyrite-mineralization with uncommon seen gold. This space is 4.5 km northwest of Part 1 and Part 2 drilling space at Twin Ponds. Detailed spot chip sampling of the outcrop returned from 1.60 to 4.03 g/t gold, and three.06 g/t silver in 4 samples over an publicity of ~15 meters size. Channel sampling is deliberate to additional assess the potential widths and grade of this excessive precedence goal.
The Paradise Lake-Stony Caldera properties are thought-about to have potential to host “Orogenic” and “Intrusive Associated” kinds of gold mineralization similar to the Valentine Lake, Cape Ray, Moosehead, and Queensway gold deposits. They’re hosted inside the Cape-Ray-Valentine Lake (“CRVL”) structural zone. Linear magnetic intrusions of granodiorite/syenite happen within the neighborhood of Twin Ponds-Paradise Lake. They’re located alongside major or secondary buildings to the CRVL. Airborne magnetic information and floor IP surveys have revealed coincident anomalies and a number of phases of intrusive exercise. Excessive-grade gold bearing, “leakage” buildings have been sampled at floor and intersected in drilling. Related structural zones elsewhere within the property have been focused for observe up exploration in 2022.
Pattern preparation and analytical work for drill core was accomplished by Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Inc. (“BV”) positioned in Vancouver B.C. BV has an ISO/IEC 17025 certification. Pattern preparation adopted BV’s code PRP70-1kg. Gold and 36 hint parts concentrations is set utilizing BV’s code AQ202, ICP-ES/MS on a 30g pattern. Aurwest’s QA/QC protocol consists of geotechnical measurements, images, detailed geological logging and insertion of Commonplace Reference Materials and blanks within the pattern streams. A number of 93 pattern pulps with >50ppb Au have been run by hearth assay and relatively analyzed. The outcomes when in comparison with ICP ES/MS have been largely inside a regular deviation of variance. Rock sampled collected from 2022 are being ship to Jap Analytical in Springdale, Newfoundland for gold by hearth assay and 34 hint parts by ICP-ES/MS.
