Signature Resources Announces Successful Completion of Diamond Drill Program at Its High Grade Lingman Lake Gold Property
September 18, 2018 (Source) —
- Major Milestone Completing First Drill Program at Lingman Lake Since Late 1980s
- In Process of Selecting Core Samples to be sent to SGS for Assays
Signature Resources Ltd. (TSXV: SGU, OTCQB: SGGTF) (“Signature” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce the successful completion of the diamond drill program at Lingman Lake. Twelve holes totaling 1,518 meters have been completed; eleven of the holes intersected significant alteration and sulphide mineralization that are typically related to the known gold-bearing mineralization at Lingman Lake.
“Visually, all of the holes intersected zones of interest. Eleven of them displayed significant alteration and mineralization which should correlate with known gold zones. Sample cutting of the core is underway and should be completed in about two weeks, after which all of the samples will be flown to SGS’ laboratory in Red Lake, Ontario, and then we wait in anticipation for the assay results”, commented Walter Hanych, President and CEO of Signature Resources.
Mr. Hanych continued, “Further I would like to thank Jacob and Samuel Drilling Ltd., its crew and management, for the successful and safe completion of the drill program under challenging conditions. We are happy that all measures to assure crews safety resulted in zero accidents and or incidents reported during the campaign.”
The drill program targeted known gold zones at various depths and strike intervals. With the completion of the drill program the focus is now on core processing. This includes: total core photography, geotechnical RQD and core recovery, geological logging, sample interval determination and core cutting.

The scientific and technical content of this press release has been prepared, reviewed and approved by John Siriunas, P.Eng., Associate Independent Consultant with Caracle Creek International Consulting Ltd., and is the program site geologist, and by Walter Hanych, P.Geo., President-CEO of Signature Resources. Both are Qualified Persons as defined in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
The Lingman Lake gold property consists of four free-hold patented claims and 762 single-cell staked claims. Total land package amounts to 15,372.3 hectares; 275.5 hectares of the property total include 14 mineral-rights patents. The property hosts an historic estimate of 234,684 oz of gold* (1,063,904 tonnes grading 6.86 g Au/t at a 2.73 g Au/t cut-off) and includes what has historically been referred to as the Lingman Lake Gold Mine, an underground substructure consisting of a 126.5-meter shaft and three levels of development at depths of 46 m (150 Level), 84 m (275 Level) and 122 m (400 Level).
*This historical resource estimate is based on prior data and reports obtained and prepared by previous operators, and information provided by governmental authorities. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to verify the classification of the mineral resource estimates in accordance with current CIM categories. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current NI 43-101-compliant mineral resource estimate. Establishing a current mineral resource estimate on the Lingman Lake deposit will require further evaluation, which the Company and its consultants intend to complete in due course. Additional information regarding historical resource estimates is available in the technical report entitled, “Technical Report on the Lingman Lake Property” dated December 20, 2013, prepared by Walter Hanych, P.Geo., and Frank Racicot, P.Geo., available on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com
