Golden Pursuit Resources Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Purchase Agreement with David Nickerson (the “Vendor”), dated August 23, 2021, to acquire a 100% legal and beneficial interest in a mining lease pertaining to May Mineral Lease located on Gordon Lake, in the Northwest Territories.

Brian McClay, President and CEO, commented “Acquiring the Nickerson Lease positions GDP to expand it’s inventory of mineralization in the southern Gordon Lake mining district. High-grade mineralized intersections were discovered by Echo Bay Mines Ltd. in the last drilling campaign from 1981 (1309 feet in 11 holes). These intersections are extremely important in the context of delineating economic concentrations of gold within the major “refold” structure covering the south and southwest end of Gordon Lake, which includes the Kidney Pond area. The Nickerson lease provides additional documentation that broad zones of economic gold likely occur within this “refold” structure. Gold mineralization occurring within quartz breccia zones and within black, carbonaceous argillites has been documented by Tim Stokes (Stokes et al, 1990 and Stokes, 1991) and will be the focus of the upcoming exploration program at Gordon Lake.”

There has been no follow-up on these historic intersections as reported in the 1981 Echo Bay report by G. N. Woollett, P. Eng. (B.C.), P.Geo. (Alberta):

Above assays from 1981 Echo Bay Mines Report by G. N. Woollett, P.Eng (B.C.), P.Geo. (Alberta)

Upon completion of the program in 1981 by Echo Bay, more drilling was recommended. No further drilling has been completed on this lease since 1981.

Previous to 1981 and summarized in the Woollett report – “Sovereign Yellowknife Mines Ltd. drilled 18 x ray dill holes from lake ice to test a quartz vein in 1947. Thirteen holes intersected visible gold (Nickerson communication). Location of the drill holes is not known; assay values for only five holes are recorded in drill logs.” A single hole drilled in 1958 is reported to have intersected minor copper mineralization; no record of this work is available. Other previous work included sampling of veins in 1975.

Geology is described in the report “The May mineral claim is underlain by steeply dipping, isoclinally folded Archean greywacke and slate (Henderson 1941, Dwg 1615-1). Numerous parallel to sub-parallel narrow quartz veins are exposed on an island within the May mineral claim. Rock types, structures and quartz veining are similar to the Camlaren mine” (historical production of 65,000 tons grading 36,000 ounces.

Details of the Agreement are as follows:

The Agreement provides that, subject to regulatory approval, the Company shall purchase such mining lease for an amount of $10,000 and 100,000 common shares.

Additional Agreement Details:

The Agreement is subject to a 2% net smelter return (“NSR Royalty”) in favor of the Vendor. The Company has the right, at any time to purchase 1% of the NSR Royalty (reducing the NSR Royalty to 1%) by paying the Vendor the sum of $1,000,000.

The agreement and the issuance of shares are subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
