Lake Winn Obtains the Quartz Project in Manitoba, With Historic Gold Intercepts

Wednesday, January 27th, 2021

Lake Winn Resources Corp. (“Lake Winn” or the “Company”) has obtained a new 100% owned project in the Flin Flon gold belt, Manitoba. The project was created in part by staking and in part by completing a purchase agreement described below. The new project is a welcome addition to the Lake Winn portfolio and fits well with our strategy to build a significant gold explorer and developer. 

The Quartz project lies near the southern shores in Reed Lake between the Reed Lake and Four Mile Island VMS deposits, approximately 78km to the East of Flin Flon. 

The Quartz project contains multiple drill hole intercepts containing gold. See tables below.  In 1975, a diamond drill hole, Eel-258, intersected 1.28m @ 19.9 g/t Au, whilst targeting a 1.45km long EM conductor. The hole was drilled by Hudson Bay Exploration and Development Co. Ltd. (“Hudson Bay”) who were exploring for copper-zinc massive sulphide deposits at the time.  Subsequently, Hudson Bay drilled 19 diamond drill holes into this gold bearing zone between 1975 and 1988. Fourteen of the 19 holes were drilled in a 200m long section of the conductor, leaving most of the 1.45km long conductor untested. Figure 1 depicts the location of the Hudson Bay drill holes and the more significant drill hole gold intercepts. These are summarized in Table 1 and their locations are shown in figure 1. In 2007 the area was further drill tested by Tribune Uranium Corp., (“Tribune”). Their work is summarized in table 2 and 3. They also encountered multiple gold intercepts but again they concentrated the drilling in the 200m zone already shown to contain gold by Hudson Bay. Highlights of the Tribune drilling include 5.8m @ 12.8g/t Au, and 1.43m @ 12.0 g/t Au. The drill intercepts show that the conductor is represented by a shear with sulphides and graphite hosted in felsic volcanics. The Tribune drilling intersected multiple gold bearing shears and a cross section is provided in figure 2 to demonstrate this. 

Lake Winn’s main exploration objective is to drill test the entire 1.45km length of the conductor for extensions of the proven zone which as defined by the historic drilling [s open to the east to the west and at depth. To expedite this the company has commissioned and heliborne time domain EM survey (TDEM). This survey will be used to accurately locate the conductive horizon, allowing 3D modelling of the conductor to aid drill targeting. The plan is to begin drilling this season before the ice melts prior to April dependent on permitting and the weather.  Permit applications have been submitted.
