Vancouver, Canada – TheNewswire - September 16, 2021 – Canada One Mining Corp. (the “Company” or “Canada One”) (TSXV:CONE) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement, effective date August 31st, 2021 (the “Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company will acquire the right to earn a 100% interest, subject to a 2% royalty, in the Franelle Copper Project (the “Project”, or the “Property”), a 31 square kilometre contiguous property located 90 kilometres northwest of Schefferville, Quebec, from Messrs. Fayz and Ramy Yacoub (the “Vendors”), arm’s length parties (the “Transaction”).

Key Highlights

  • - The Project hosts 4 mineralized zones: Franelle, Bennelle, Reuben and Beluet

    - The Franelle zone currently extends westwardly 2,600 metres along a 7000-metre gabbro dyke that has an average width of 60 to 75 metres

    - Three programs of diamond drilling at the Franelle zone intersected significant widths of copper mineralization, including:

    • - 2.42% copper over 13.7m within 32m of 1.12% copper

      - 0.86% copper over 25.3m within 50.3m of 0.51% copper;

      - 0.80% copper over 14.9m within 33.2m of 0.59% copper within 173.4m of 0.29% copper;

      - 0.56% copper over 39m

    - Grab sample copper highlights include: 6.15% and 4.83% from the Beluet zone, 2.06%, 1.73% and 1.68% from the Bennelle zone

    - Chip sample highlights include: 4% copper and 6.9 g/t silver over 0.40 metres and 2.61% copper and 2.5 g/t silver over 2.5 metres from Reuben zone

 

Canada One cautions investors selected grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of mineralization hosted on the Project. The true width of the mineralization is unknown at this time.

 

“The Franelle Copper Project represents an excellent opportunity for Canada One shareholders,” commented CEO Peter Berdusco. “The strong copper grades over good widths immediately attracted us to the project and we plan to undertake a comprehensive review of the historical data to drive the upcoming exploration program.”

Project Overview

 

The Franelle Copper Project hosts 4 mineralized zones: Franelle, Bennelle, Beluet and Reuben.

The Franelle zone trends NNW 2600m along a 7000m long gabbro dyke with an average width of 60m to 75m. Mineralization consists of native copper, and copper oxides and sulfides with some potential supergene enrichment. Mineralization occurs as dissemination within the gabbro and with veins, veinlets and stockworks cutting the gabbro and the metasedimentary host rock. Three programs of diamond drilling tested the gabbo between the mid 1970’s and the mid-1990’s. A historic resource was calculated in 1976. The Company will to review the historic data before disclosure. (Diamond Drill Logs, Lac Musset Property, 1995 Energie et Ressources Naturelles Quebec Report GM 53794).

 

The Bennelle zone consists of veins, veinlets and disseminations of copper mineralization intersecting a gabbro sill intruded into arkosic red sandstone. The Franelle and Bennelle zones may lie along the same gabbro. Mineralization consists of native copper, and copper oxides and sulfides, and has been traced 450m along strike and ranges from 1m to 3m in thickness. Grab sample highlights include 2.06% copper, 1.73% copper and 1.68% copper. (Source: “Gitologie Des Indices De Cuivre Du Lac Musset, Fosse Du Labrador par B. Brassard (1984), Energie et Ressources Naturelles Quebec Report MB84-03).

 

Mineralization at the Beluet zone is hosted in an altered shear zone within sandstones in fault contact with gabbros and consists of malachite, azurite and chrysocolla accompanied by chalcopyrite.  The shear zone has been traced 50m along strike and is 5m thick. Grab sample highlights include: 6.15% copper and 4.83% copper. (Source: Metallic Deposit 23O/11-004 1995 Energie et Ressources  Naturelles Quebec)

 

The Reuben zone, a 30-metre wide stockwork of gabbro hosting calcite and epidote veins carrying chalcopyrite and malachite, and has been traced intermittently 425 metres along strike. Individual showings along the trend range from 60 metres by 6 metres to 15 metres by 1.5 metres. Chip sample highlights include: 4% copper and 6.9 g/t silver over 0.40 metres and 2.61% copper and 2.5 g/t silver over 2.5 metres.

Canada One cautions investors it has not yet verified the above historic data.
