Toronto, Ontario, September 9, 2020 – Bold Ventures Inc. (BOL: TSX.V) (the “Company” or “Bold”) is pleased to announce that a prospecting crew has been mobilized to the Farwell Gold and Base Metals Project located approximately 55 km northwest of Wawa, Ontario.
The initial work will take place along the Tundra Gold Horizon (“TGH”) in the eastern portion of the property.
The TGH is located along the eastern extension of the Iron Lake Deformation Zone and co-incident iron formation. Historical exploration has identified 3 gold-copper occurrences – Tundra, Conductor ‘B’ and Brown Lake occurrences – in sheared sedimentary-volcanic host rocks along this easterly trend. Previous sampling identified samples grading up to 7.5 g/t Au and 1.58% Cu (Campbell 2010). Each of these sites and the surrounding bedrock exposures, will be prospected, mapped and sampled in detail by Bold’s crew.
Two additional target areas will be carefully examined and sampled. They include the centrally located Farwell Sulphide Zone (“FSZ”) and the western Koala Gold Area (“KGA”). (See the Farwell Bedrock Geology and Mineral Compilation Map at www.boldventuresinc.com ).
The FSZ is centered on 2 high-grade copper occurrences discovered in the late 1960’s, known as the Bibis Prospect and the Burrex Cu showing. Historical diamond drilling in this area returned assay results up to 1.47% Cu over 5.2 m in sheared, silicified metavolcanic host rocks. Ontario Geological Survey grab samples collected from these same occurrences assayed up to 5.58% Cu and 20.5 g/t Ag (Bennett and Thurston 1977).
The KGA hosts 3 known gold occurrences from exploration work conducted in the late 1980’s. Discoveries included diamond drilling intersections up to 12.8 g/t over 1.52 m and soil geochemical survey samples up to 557 ppb Au in altered mafic volcanic rocks and highly sulphidized iron formation (White 1987).
The Farwell claims are road accessible via the Paint Lake Rd. (Eagle River Mine service road) and consist of 103 Cell claims, 6 Multi-Cell claims and 6 Boundary claims comprising approximately 7,770 ha or 19,200 acres. Wesdome Gold Mines Mishi Open Pit operation and the Magnacon Mill, both part of the larger Eagle River Complex that includes the Eagle River underground gold mine, lie 5 km south of the Farwell claim group. The Eagle River Mine is situated approximately 25 km to the south of the subject claims.
