ALS GoldSpot identifies Multiple High Priority Targets on Finlay's Silver Hope Property

Canada NewsWire

VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 23, 2023 /CNW/ - Finlay Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: FYL) (OTCQB: FYMNF) ("Finlay" or the "Company") is pleased to report that ALS GoldSpot has outlined 16 high priority targets from a total of 113 targets on its 100% owned Silver Hope Property ("the Property") within the Skeena Arch area of central British Columbia. These high priority targets include the Main Trend, the West (Cu-Mo ) Porphyry, and the recently announced East Trend (see Finlay News Release 14-23 "Finlay Minerals reports on its successful 2023 Silver Hope Property Field Program" dated October 12, 2023).

A prospectivity report created by ALS GoldSpot categorized the 113 targets based on mineralization styles on the Property which include: Polymetallic (Main Trend) mineralization, Equity-style mineralization, Porphyry mineralization, and Special (Sam Zone) mineralization in addition to geophysical targets.  Through the work of ALS GoldSpot and Finlay, four "Priority Target Areas" have been delineated on the Property.

Priority Target Areas:

#1         Includes the Main Trend and West Porphyry. ALS GoldSpot further identified the potential for the extension of the West Porphyry to the south in addition to the East Trend with the potential for more polymetallic mineralization similar to the Main Trend.

#2         Includes two high priority targets for Equity-style mineralization: Target 1 extends south from the former Equity Silver Mine and includes the Zest showing where past drilling has intersected similar lithology, alteration and mineralization as the Main Trend and the Equity Silver Mine, however, in thinner zones. Target 2 exists west of Target 1 with a similar orientation. The potential for similar mineralization styles exists at Target 2 based on the 2022 drilling where drill holes SH22-05 and 06 intersected narrow veins of galena, chalcopyrite, and sphalerite. These drill holes were collared 300m east of Target 2 and the mineralized veins are similar to other drill holes peripheral to the former Equity Silver Mine and the Main Trend.

#3         Includes several targets of interest with Target 3, which hosts overlapping porphyry and polymetallic signatures, being the most compelling. These targets are near the Dina Showing where past drilling intersected similar lithology and alteration as the Main Trend and the former Equity Silver Mine. Drill holes at the Dina intersected minor silver and copper mineralization. Target 3 occurs along a northeast trending structure similar to that of the Main Trend and former Equity Silver Mine. This area has received little-to-no exploration due to being heavily forested in the past; recent logging has opened up the area improving access.

#4         Occurs east of the Sam Zone on the west side of the Property and could host a potential porphyry and possible extension of the Sam Zone. Drilling and mapping around the Sam Zone have noted sericite, carbonate, chlorite and quartz alteration which could represent distal porphyry alteration.

Conclusion & Next Steps:
  • ALS GoldSpot has identified several high priority targets that complement the known mineralized zones at the Main Trend and West Porphyry;
  • Additionally, ALS GoldSpot's work has identified completely new targets in the Equity East, Zest, Sam and Dina areas of the Property which have seen little or no exploration work in the past;
  • With the recent results from the biogeochemical sampling, future biogeochemical sampling will be planned over these high priority target areas along with prospecting.
  • Induced Polarization geophysical surveys will then follow-up any biogeochemical targets that parallel the ALS GoldSpot targets aiding in defining future drilling targets.

For further details on the Silver Hope Property and the 2023 biogeochemistry and ALS GoldSpot work, refer to our updated Silver Hope Technical Presentation.

ALS GoldSpot:

ALS GoldSpot conducted a review, familiarization and tidying of all the Silver Hope geochemical, geophysical and geological lithology data in preparation for machine learning processing in addition to traditional structural, lithogeochemical and geological modelling interpretations to create a ranked series of prospectivity targets.

About Finlay Minerals Ltd.

Finlay is a TSXV company focused on exploration for base and precious metal deposits with three properties in northern British Columbia:

  • The Silver Hope Property covers 213.11 km2 and surrounds the past-producing Equity Silver Mine in the prospective Skeena Arch region of central B.C. The Silver Hope contains the Main Trend which is a >2km Cu-Ag-Au mineralized trend with mineralization starting at surface.  West of the Main Trend is the West Cu-Mo Porphyry which is also mineralized starting from surface. The Property hosts a network of forestry roads and trails and has all-year access from Houston, BC.

  • The ATTY Property covers 33.93 km2 of sub-alpine terrain in the southern Toodoggone region. The Toodoggone is a northwest-trending belt of Triassic to Jurassic arc terranes that hosts numerous significant porphyry Cu-Au ± Ag and associated epithermal Au-Ag deposits. The ATTY Property is in between and contiguous to Centerra Gold's Kemess Property and the joint-ventured Joy Property held by Amarc and Freeport-McMoRan. The ATTY's KEM target has similarities to the Kemess North Trend which hosts the Kemess Underground and Kemess East deposits.

  • The PIL Property, which covers 170 km2 in the heart of the Tooddogone region has numerous targets of porphyry Cu-Au ± Ag and associated epithermal Au-Ag mineralization. The property is in Year 2 of a 5-year option to Cascadia Minerals Ltd. (formerly ATAC Resources Ltd.), on completion of which Cascadia will acquire a 70% interest in the PIL.  Following the exercise of the option, Cascadia and Finlay will hold interests in the Property of 70% and 30%, respectively, and a joint venture will be formed.
