Toronto, Ontario, September 17, 2020 – Bold Ventures Inc. (BOL: TSX.V) (the “Company” or “Bold”) is pleased to announce that an exploration permit has been issued relating to the Traxxin Gold Project located approximately 130 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The claims are road accessible via Trans Canada Highway 11. Local infrastructure includes rail, power and an experienced mineral exploration workforce and mining supply, all located within hours of the property. Combined with the Traxxin Extension claims held by Bold and Lac Des Mille Lacs First Nation (LDMLFN), the claim group is comprised of 151 claim cells and boundary cells that have an area of approximately 2,224 hectares or 5,496 acres (see Bold news releases dated July 31, 2020 and August 24, 2020).
The permit allows for stripping and sampling, line cutting, geophysical surveys and diamond drilling. The program has commenced by way of re-logging and sampling of previous diamond drill core and the interpretation of geophysical surveys including an airborne magnetometer survey, an airborne electromagnetic survey and a ground based Induced Polarization survey performed in 2016 and 2017.
The exploration plan for the property will have two main thrusts that include drill testing of the main zone that remains open at depth and along strike as well as a property-wide evaluation of additional gold potential.
Please note that a new exploration activity map showing the location of Bold’s Wilcorp Gold Project and Traxxin Gold Project has been posted on the Bold Ventures Inc. website at www.boldventuresinc.com. It shows many of the claim holders in this active gold camp.
Some Highlights of the Traxxin Main Zone drilling to date include:
The claims host a well-defined gold-bearing structure along a northeast splay of the Quetico Fault.
Recent trenching and diamond drilling (2018) have identified a gold-bearing zone of at least 300 m in strike length associated with a well-defined sheared quartz vein surface exposure from 15 to 30 m wide.
Diamond drilling results include 4.76 g/t Au over 3.8 m (Hole BED-17-016), 1.06 g/t Au over 22.2 m (Hole BED-17-005) and 37.3 g/t Au over 1.0 m (Hole BED-17- 003) (Sims 2019).
The gold-bearing horizon is open along strike in both directions. The 2017 and 2018 diamond drilling was near surface and tested above 100 m. One hole (BED-17-022) in the central part of the zone did penetrate to almost 150 m and intercepted the zone where it remains open at depth.
