Wallbridge Continues to Expand High-Grade Mineralization Intersecting up to 346.55 g/t Gold Over 3.06 metres at the Fenelon Gold Property in Quebec

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2017 /CNW/ - Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX:WM, FWB: WC7) ("Wallbridge") is pleased to announce assay results from its second round of exploration drilling on the 100% owned Fenelon Gold property ("Fenelon") in Quebec. Nine of fifteen drill holes intersected visible gold, expanding the high-grade deposit to the west and down-plunge and discovering two new parallel zones. Mineralization remains open along strike and to depth and follow-up drilling is planned to begin in September.

Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (CNW Group/Wallbridge Mining Company Limited)

Highlights

  • Results follow Wallbridge's announcement of preliminary results on July 12, 2017, which reported eight holes intersecting substantial intervals containing visible gold.
  • Drill hole FA-17-17 intersected four mineralized zones including:
    • 346.55 g/t gold over 3.06 metres from 134.86 metres down hole in the newly named "Viper" zone in which previous drill hole FA-17-07 intersected 149.08 g/t gold over 7.06 metres (see Wallbridge press release dated April 18, 2017);
    • 21.95 g/t gold over 4.45 metres from 110.92 metres down hole in the newly discovered "Habanero" zone;
    • 6.13 g/t gold over 5.22 metres from 126.97 metres down hole in the newly discovered "Paprika" zone;
  • Drill hole FA-17-18 intersected two mineralized zones including 7.83 g/t gold over 4.64 metres from 121.36 down hole, extending the new Viper zone;
  • Drill hole FA-17-19 intersected 12.29 g/t gold over 6.87 metres from 116.72 metres down hole, extending the new Habanero zone;
  • Drill hole FA-17-22 intersected two mineralized zones including 67.00 g/t gold over 0.76 metres from 36.00 metres depth, extending the newly named "Cayenne" zone (previously the 109 zone); and
  • Drill hole FA-17-23 intersected two mineralized zones including 9.37 g/t gold over 2.99 metres from 132.00 metres down hole, extending the new Habanero zone and leaving it open down-plunge to the west.

"This is Wallbridge's second successful drilling program at Fenelon since acquisition. We are excited with the results which significantly expand the high-grade core of the deposit at 100 metres depth and within reach of the planned bulk sample development. In addition, several new parallel zones have been identified which have similar potential. We are more confident than ever in the resource expansion potential at Fenelon," stated Marz Kord, President and CEO of Wallbridge, "We look forward to more surface drilling this fall to further extend the deposit at shallow depths and test other targets on the property. In addition, we look forward to underground drilling to expand the deposit during the 35,000 tonne bulk sample that we plan to start this fall".

Twenty-four exploration drill holes totaling 4,808 metres have been completed from surface at Fenelon in 2017. The drilling reported here includes fifteen drill holes totaling 3,231 metres of which nine holes intersected visible gold as shown in the table below (see press release July 12, 2017). This program followed-up results from earlier in the year when five of nine holes intersected significant gold, including 149.08 g/t gold over 7.06 metres (see Wallbridge press release dated April 18, 2017).

A summary of the assay results from this second round of exploration drilling are reported in Table 1 and 2 and also shown on Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 below.

Wallbridge acquired Fenelon last fall and released positive results from a pre-feasibility study earlier this year (see Wallbridge press release dated March 6, 2017).  In addition to ongoing surface exploration to expand the resource, Wallbridge received a Certificate of Non-Liability (Attestation de Non-Assujettissement) from the Government of Quebec for the dewatering of the pit and ramp and a 35,000 tonne bulk sample and has submitted an application for a certificate of authorization ("C of A") from the regional authority responsible for issuing permits. The underground bulk sample at Fenelon is expected to commence later in 2017 and Wallbridge is working to achieve commercial production at Fenelon in 2018 (see Wallbridge press release dated August 15, 2017).

Drill core samples from the recent drill programs at Fenelon were cut and bagged on site and transported to ALS Chemex. Samples, along with standards, blanks, and duplicates included for quality assurance and quality control, were prepared and analyzed at ALS Chemex Ltd. laboratories. Samples are crushed to 90% less than 2mm. A 1kg riffle split is pulverized to >95% passing 106 microns. 50g samples are analyzed by fire assay and AAS (for samples returning >100g/t Au, 50g is automatically analyzed by fire assay with gravimetric finish). For samples >10g/t Au or samples containing visible gold, Wallbridge requests screen metallic analysis of the remaining pulverised split to test for coarse free gold. Several screen metallic analysis are still pending. These and future assay results may vary from time to time due to re-analysis for quality assurance and quality control.

The Qualified Person responsible for the technical content of this press release is Attila Pentek, P.Geo., Ph.D., Senior Geologist for Wallbridge Mining Company Limited. Mr. Pentek has prepared, supervised and approved the scientific and technical disclosures in this press release.

About Wallbridge Mining

Wallbridge is establishing a pipeline of projects that will support sustainable production and revenue as well as organic growth through exploration and scalability.

Wallbridge is currently preparing to develop its 100%-owned high-grade gold Fenelon Gold Property in Quebec with ongoing exploration and a bulk sample targeted to start in 2017. Wallbridge is also in discussions regarding several other advanced stage projects which could become the Company's next mines.  These discussions benefit from the operating capabilities Wallbridge demonstrated by safely and efficiently mining the Broken Hammer deposit in Sudbury, which was completed in October 2015.  Wallbridge is also continuing partner-funded exploration on its large portfolio of nickel, copper, and PGM projects in Sudbury, Ontario, with a focus on its high-grade Parkin project.

Wallbridge also has exposure to active exploration for copper and gold in Jamaica and British Columbia through its 12.7% ownership of Carube Copper Corp. (CUC:TSX-V, formerly Miocene Resources Limited).
