GOLDEN PURSUIT STAKES ADDITIONAL CLAIMS ON JOINT VENTURED PROSPECTS IN CENTRAL NEVADA

VANCOUVER, BC, November 15, 2018, Golden Pursuit Resources Ltd (TSX.V: GDP)(“GDP”) is pleased to announce that it has staked additional claims over new developing targets at both the Black Point and Stevens Basin properties, with each subject to the terms of Lease Purchase Option Joint Venture Agreements, entered into by the signing of Letters of  Intent with 1167609 B.C. LTD, as announced on October 23, 2018.

 

Target Mineralization

The targets at both properties are Carlin style gold deposits hosted in favorable lithologic horizons and structures in Lower Paleozoic carbonate-rich rocks. The closest examples to the Stevens Basin property are the Archimedes deposits at Ruby Hill 10 km to the northeast that produced 1.4 million ounces of gold. The Black Point property lies 19 km NE of Ruby Hill and 31 km SW of the Yankee-Alligator Ridge-Bald Mountain District.

 

Stevens Basin

New claims covering Lower Paleozoic carbonate rocks surrounding the Basin were recently staked, including areas where rock chip sampling of siliceous zones (jasperoids) has yielded values between 0.14 and 1.56 ppm gold. Jasperoids often represent the surface expression of hydrothermal fluids from which gold deposits are formed. Frequently, jasperoids only contain trace gold values but have anomalous levels of associated pathfinder metals, particularly arsenic, antimony, and mercury. These are intruded by altered intermediate intrusive rocks that generally trend E-W. Such evidence of igneous activity is invariably present in, or adjacent to, Carlin systems.  

Detailed field mapping is in progress to outline anomalous metal trends that may also coincide with recently recognized targets. Intersections of geophysical linears are prime targets for drill testing. Detailed gravity and new CSAMT surveys are planned over what is thought to be shallow Basin cover to augment field work and refine such targets. Recent interpretation of regional magnetic and gravity data has outlined broad linear features across Basin margins that will guide the location for the new surface surveys. The gravity and CSAMT data will also better define depth to bedrock where any buried structural targets are within striking distance of surface drilling.  

The nearby West and East Archimedes deposits are hosted in altered carbonate rocks of Lower Paleozoic age and along a distinct WNW direction where intersected by N-S and NNE-SSW trends.  A similar trend, displayed in regional magnetic data, cuts through Stevens Basin and intersects prominent N-S and NW-SE linears. Several such intersections represent excellent buried targets that GDP geologists intend to enhance with surface geochemical techniques around the basin margin. Both grid soil sampling in and around altered outcrops and BLEG sampling of basin-ward drainages are planned.

Previous work on the property concentrated on an area at the north end of the basin where a series of reverse-circulation angled drill holes tested two adjacent anomalous gold trends indicated primarily by surface sampling of jasperoids in outcrop and float. Gold mineralization greater than 100 ppb was intersected in 6 out of 22 holes over widths that, in one hole, totaled 33 meters.

 

Black Point

Reconnaissance chip sampling of silicified rocks was recently undertaken on the property. Some gold values as high as 408 ppb were obtained in jasperoidal breccia and most were highly anomalous in pathfinder metals associated with sediment hosted gold deposits, particularly arsenic. Sampled areas are close to the series of mapped and interpreted ENE, NW, and NE striking fractures or thrust faults on lithological contacts in Devonian and Mississippian calcareous siltstones and carbonate rocks including the Pilot Shale, host rock to the Alligator Ridge deposits.

Host rocks and structures extend SW under shallow basin sediment-cover. Geophysical surveys are planned to map structural continuities and cover thickness along the western extent of the property. Mineralized targets are thought to be both stratabound, particularly in the Pilot Shale, or in steeply dipping structures that act as feeders and themselves can form rich underground deposits. It is notable that over 40% of production from Carlin type systems in Nevada now comes from underground, high grade, deposits.

Past silver mining and later exploration in the Black Point area include underground mining and drilling by Gergen Mining in the 1970’s and 1980’s who also produced from the Philipsburg silver mine 8 km to the north. Later drilling by Newcrest in 1996 totaled 320 meters in 3 reverse circulation holes and, in 2011, Urastar Gold drilled 4 core holes, totaling 427 meters. No results of any previous work are currently available.

Gold production from the Yankee-Alligator Ridge-Bald Mountain belt over a 30 year period since the first discovery by Amselco, now exceeds 1.6 million ozs. Other Pilot Shale hosted deposits in eastern Nevada include the Pan, Easy Junior, and Green Springs deposits.  

GDP geologists estimate that a total of US $1.2 million have been expended to date by all the companies that have worked on both the Stevens Basin and Black Point projects. Detailed review of all available data, together with new applications of proprietary and public domain regional geophysical data, has allowed GDP geologists to interpret key structural controls on mineralization and to predict potential new drilling targets under pediment on both properties.

Silver Pursuit is Encouraged by Confirmation Sampling at East Bell Project, Churchill County Nevada

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) – Silver Pursuit Resources Ltd. (“Silver Pursuit” or the “Company“) (TSX-V: SPF) is pleased to announce that it has completed a 2017 prospecting and surface sampling program at its East Bell Property. The project is located 40 miles southeast of Fallon and 20 miles north of Gabbs, Nevada.  Access is via Nevada Highway 361 to the turnoff to where good dirt roads lead to the property three miles west of the pavement.

 

The property consists of thirty unpatented lode claims that include 24 claims in the “Flats Zone” and six claims to the west that cover bedrock exposures at the “Hillside Zone”. Land is administered by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, Carson City Field Office. Elevations range from 5535 feet to 6415 feet (1687-1955 m) at the project.

 

Gold occurrences at East Bell are characteristic of low sulfidation, epithermal mineralization hosted in Tertiary volcanic rocks. A train of gold-bearing boulders of rhyolite porphyry form a well- mineralized zone in surface sampling; this zone coincides with a resistivity-high suggesting silicification in the near-surface bedrock. This is known as the “Flats Zone” where the resistivity anomaly and mineralized samples occur in a zone over 350 meters (1100 ft) wide and along a strike length of 1700 m (5600 ft). A second zone, situated a mile (1600m) west, is known as the “Hillside Zone”. Gold mineralization at the Hillside Zone is associated with silicification and adularization of outcropping, felsic volcanic host rocks. A six-hole drilling program is planned to test the two target zones.

 

Silver Pursuit completed a prospecting and surface sampling program (the “2017 Program“) at its Property in order to evaluate the project for hosting potentially economic gold mineralization. The 2017 Program was carried out on behalf of the Company by geological consultant, Pavel Dubchak M.Sc., P.Geo., who is also a Qualified Person as that term is defined by National Instrument NI 43-101 (“NI 43-101“).

 

Assays from the 2017 Program at the East Bell project confirm the extensive gold mineralization reported in previous sampling completed by the owner in the property. A total of 14 rock chip samples were collected at the property and gold values range from nil to 8.42 g/t Au. Silver values ranged up to 118 g/t Ag (3.44 opt) and are associated with the highest gold value. A complete list of assays and descriptions will be posted on the company’s website www.silverpursuit.com along with a sample location map.

 

Precious metals mineralization is hosted by silicified rhyolite breccia with oxidized pyrite and subhedral adularia. Previous sampling has returned values from nil to 40.8 g/t gold in rock chip samples. Variations in the gold concentrations for the recent sampling with respect to previous nearby samples is thought to be related to coarse gold pockets in the mineralized system.

 

Gold mineralization at East Bell is characteristic of low-sulfidation, epithermal mineralization hosted in Tertiary volcanic rocks. A train of gold-bearing boulders of rhyolite porphyry form a distinct and well- mineralized zone in surface sampling; this zone coincides with a resistivity-high suggesting silicification in the near-surface bedrock. This area is known as the “Flats Zone” where the resistivity anomaly and mineralized samples occur in a zone over 350 meters (1100 ft) wide and along a strike length of 1700 m (5600 ft). A second zone, situated a mile (1600m) west, is known as the “Hillside Zone”. Gold mineralization at the Hillside Zone is associated with silicification and adularization of outcropping, felsic volcanic host rocks.

 

The 2017 Program consisted of prospecting and surface sampling at the Property during the month of October 2017. It followed-up on previous sampling program completed by the vendor which had returned values of from nil to 40.8 g/t Au.

 

The purpose of the 2017 Program was to validate previous sampling completed by Larry McIntosh, a well-known Nevada based Geologist/Prospector, the property vendor and the person responsible for the discovery of the mineralization in this area.

 

The 2017 Program focused on confirming previously reported gold values along a 300-meter-wide corridor and finding new targets for follow-up with geophysical survey and drill testing. Based upon the surface evaluation and review of the previous work both zones have the potential of broader mineralization. The flat Zone where it becomes covered by overburden and  the Hillside Zone as it has never been drilled tested and remains open for expansion in all directions.

 

A total of 23 rock chip and grab samples were collected and then delivered directly to ALS USA Ltd. (“ALS“), at their Reno, Nevada location, for assaying and testing for gold and silver. ALS is an ISO – 17025 accredited laboratory providing geochemistry analysis to the mining industry. The implemented QAQC protocol included certified reference material and silica blank inserted with the batch of samples submitted for mineral analysis. most of the samples were from a train and the next stage of work on the property will be focused on finding a source.

 

A six-hole drilling program is planned to test the two target zones but geophysics consisting of an IP-Resistivity survey along with a basic magnetometer survey is recommended prior to drilling.

 

Pavel Dubchak M.Sc., P.Geo., geological consultant and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument NI 43-101 (“NI 43-101“), supervised the preparation of the technical information contained in this press release in compliance with NI 43-101.

Silver Pursuit acquires Chaos Creek claim group

Mr. Brian McClay reports

SPF-TSX.V ACQUIRES CHAOS CREEK CLAIM GROUP – NYE CTY NEVADA

Silver Pursuit Resources Ltd. has acquired a claim group known as Chaos Creek. Consideration for the claims is 100,000 shares and a 1-per-cent net smelter return (NSR) royalty.

Location

The Chaos Creek prospect consists of 12 lode claims located in the Squaw Hills and are situated in northeast Nye county approximately 53 miles south of Eureka and 75 miles northeast of Tonopah in Nevada. Elevations range from 7,690 to 6,500 feet (2,344 to 1,981 metres) in the prospect area.

Target concept

Chaos Creek is a raw prospect with potential for high-grade, epithermal precious metals veins and for disseminated gold mineralization hosted in the volcaniclastic rocks. Rhyolitic flow-dome complexes host crosscutting, mineralized breccias. Much of the host rock is covered by postmineral tuffs or gravel deposits. The gravel deposits are thought to be deposited in broken and altered zones of rhyolitic intrusive and felsic volcanic rocks of Eocene to Oligocene age.

A primary feature of interest is the intersection of two caldera margins along a deep-seated structural contact with the Paleozoic basement rocks. At the Chaos Creek claims, rhyolitic flow dome complexes are interpreted to be resurgent in character and are coincident with the nested margin of two intersecting volcanic centres of Oligocene age. A deep-seated, northeast-trending structural corridor is bounded, to the west, by Mississippian basement rocks. The rhyolitic domes and lavas are spatially coincident with localized anomalies modelled from remote-sensed ASTER data representing clay alteration and silicification. Surface exposures within the anomalies identified by ASTER are related to infilling and crosscutting silica veinlets that indicate episodic pulses of hydrothermal activity. To date, anomalous values of gold up to 0.45 gram per tonne have been discovered near the contact between the Paleozoic and Tertiary rocks.

Work planned

Systematic surface sampling and an IP (induced polarization) resistivity survey are planned to define drilling targets. Trace element distribution, in the sampling results, will provide vectors to guide target definition. The geophysical survey is intended to create a 3-D understanding of the subsurface geometry of the older intrusive host rocks and to identify contrasting resistivity where mineralized zones and controlling feeder structures may be present.

A summary map and cross-sections outlining pertinent features of the property may be found on the company’s website.

Silver Pursuit Completes Staking Of 19 Properties in Nevada

Vancouver, BC (FSCwire) – Silver Pursuit Resources Ltd. (SPF – TSX.V) is pleased to provide an update on the acquisition by staking of 19 distinct mineral claim blocks located in 7 different counties in Nevada. The staking program is a result of a prospecting, data mining, geological mapping and sampling program that has been underway since March 2016. The Company has focused efforts towards building a database identifying prospective mineral properties with a focus on gold projects in the State of Nevada.

Nevada is a major producer of gold with a long history of mining and exploration and significant potential for continued discoveries. Silver Pursuit’s database utilized United States Geological Survey spatial multi-element geochemical and geological data paired with the mineral occurrence database (including mineral occurrences, prospects, and mines) and digitized County PLAT (claim) maps which record the rich history of mining activities across the entire state of Nevada. From this data, a pronounced correlation was observed between the major producing mining districts and the elevation on a regional scale of key indicator elements such as Antimony and Arsenic.

This simple correlation acted a guide towards the most prospective regions and allowed for a narrower focus onto key areas that have been held for extended periods of time by companies of significance. All claim groups have a minimum extended ownership history of previous noteworthy companies that include Cordex Exploration Co., BHP Minerals, Newmont Mining Corp., Homestake Mining Co., Western Mining Corp., Coral Resources Inc., Cordilleran Exploration, Santa Fe Pacific Mining, and others.

As a result of this exercise a total of 19 separate mineral claims across 7 counties, comprising 98 individual claims have been identified, staked, and filed. See the attached map for specific location of the newly acquired claims. (Note, all claims are currently pending approval from the BLM).

Silver Pursuit has now initiated an extensive data search for details of the work completed by former owners and operators. As the properties were held from 5 to plus 35 years and with much evidence of extensive work and mineralization in the prolific mineralized belts of Nevada by the most successful exploration and mine development companies in Nevada’s history; the Company’s claims have excellent potential.

All claims are owned 100% by SPF and are royalty free. The Company is designed as a “Project Generator” and will explore Joint Venture and sale options upon completion of the next phase of detailed evaluation which will be initiated immediately.
