October 25, 2022 (Source) – TRU Precious Metals Corp. (TSXV: TRU) (OTCQB: TRUIF) (“TRU” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on additional field work being completed across several key prospective areas at its flagship Golden Rose Project in Central Newfoundland (“Golden Rose”).
The Company is currently focused on completing trenching, soil, till, and rock sampling on the Golden Rose Project prior to the commencement of the winter season. Priority has been given to exploring highly prospective target areas based on both historical and recent exploration results and known geophysical anomalies. These areas include the Woods Lake gold zone (“Woods Lake”), Jacob’s Twin gold-copper-silver discovery area and the recently optioned Staghorn property (Figure 1).
TRU Co-Founder and CEO Joel Freudman commented: “We are pleased to be closing out the 2022 field season with additional work at Golden Rose. We have embarked on several cost-effective exploration initiatives, that allow us to protect TRU’s treasury and capitalization structure while advancing multiple targets across the project towards the drill-ready stage for a third round of drilling in 2023. We are fortunate to be adequately funded to complete this work, especially considering prevailing depressed market conditions.”
- At the Jacob’s Twin target area, a comprehensive soil sampling program was conducted in early 2022. Soil samples were collected at a 25 metre (m) spacing along 100 m spaced lines. A coincident copper-gold soil anomaly was identified 750 m to 1.2 kilometres southwest of the recently announced Jacob’s Twin gold-copper-silver discovery (please refer to TRU news release dated September 22, 2022). Based on these findings, the Company decided to conduct an additional 50 m spaced infill soil sampling program to further delineate the newly identified copper-gold soil anomaly.
Woods Lake and surrounding area
- A total of 323 soil samples and 31 till samples were recently collected.
Mark’s Pond and Rich House
- Trenching and prospecting work has commenced on these claims, with an immediate focus on the Mark’s Pond gold zone (“Mark’s Pond”) and Rich House gold prospect (“Rich House”) (Figure 1).
- An historical trench at Mark’s Pond from 2020 is being re-opened and extended to complete channel, soil and till sampling.
- Prospecting and rock sampling were recently completed at Rich House, where historical grab samples returned up to 189.2 grams per ton (g/)t gold at the main mineral occurrence, and visible gold has been previously reported.
The assay results from all the exploration programs described above are still pending from various independent laboratories and will be released by the Company in due course.
Please note that soil, rock, and float samples are selective by nature, and values reported may not represent the true grade or style of mineralization at Golden Rose.
Any descriptions of mineralization, soil/till and IP anomalies reported in this news release are preliminary and/or early-stage results. While these features are considered encouraging, there is no guarantee that these features will return significant metal assay values if and when drilled by the Company in the future.
