Vancouver, B.C., September 19, 2019. FALCON GOLD CORP. (“Falcon” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has signed 2 binding agreements (the “Agreements”) for the right to acquire a 100% interest in two (gold) mining claim blocks located in the Red Lake mining district in northwest Ontario. The two claim groups comprise 181 cell units and cover an area of approximately 9,000 acres.
The claims are contained within the Birch-Uchi-Confederation Lakes greenstone belt which hosts the world-renowned Red Lake gold deposits and includes the Dixie project currently being drilled by Great Bear Resources Ltd. (“GBR”).
The Camping Lake and Bruce Lake Properties are located 20 km southerly and 25 km southeasterly respectively of GBR’s recent Dixie Lake high-grade gold discoveries. GBR has recently reported exciting drill results with mineralized intersections commonly returning bonanza gold grades in association with coarse visible gold grains. GBR has reported successfully discovering near surface mineralization localized in quartz veins, lithological contacts and favorable host rocks which is localized near a property wide deformation zone.
“We are very pleased to have been able to sign these agreements in the Red Lake Mining District further adding to Falcon’s impressive holding in the area and we look forward to initiating geophysical and prospecting crews shortly.” Stated Karim Rayani Chief Executive Officer, Director
The Falcon claims with their proximity to the Dixie Project are believed to contain excellent targets for Red Lake-style gold mineralization. The Company intends to immediately compile all of the available assessment work to assist in the planning of its inaugural exploration program.
The greenstone belt rocks of the Property are Archean-age and may include metamorphosed mafic volcanic and intrusive units, mixed sedimentary rocks and felsic intrusive units. Gold mineralization within the Red Lake camp can reportedly occur in various rock types and can occur in diverse geological settings ranging from stratiform zones to structurally controlled veins. The Company notes that the lack of detailed historical work is as much an opportunity to conduct meaningful programs that may be guided by the successes of neighboring projects.
