Vancouver, British Columbia — October 22, 2018 Colorado Resources Ltd. (“Colorado” or the “Company”) (TSXV – CXO) is pleased to announce receipt of permits for the construction of ten diamond drill platforms at its 100% owned, 178 sq. km Kinaskan-Castle property located 4 km west of the GT Gold Corp’s1 Tatogga Property1 in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. GT Gold Corp.1 (TSXV) recently announced newly discovered Au-Cu porphyry-style mineralization at their Saddle North1 prospect (GT Gold1 news September 10th and October 10th, 2018) in addition to high-grade Au-Ag mineralization at Saddle South1 (GT Gold Corp.1 news, September 4th, 2018), both located on the Tatogga Property. Regional geological mapping and airborne magnetic surveys demonstrate the continuity of geological, geophysical and topographic features between the Tatogga Property1 and Colorado’s Kinaskan-Castle claim blocks (see Map 1 and footnote 2, below).
At Kinaskan-Castle, work completed by Colorado during 2017 included geological mapping, geophysical studies, soil geochemical sampling and prospecting, resulting in the discovery of important gold- and copper-in-soils anomalies and high-grade gold mineralization in float samples (see Colorado press releases dated January 24th and June 6th, 2018). Additional induced polarization (IP) geophysical surveying completed by Colorado during August 2018 has revealed IP chargeability anomalies coincident with large gold and copper-in-soils geochemical anomalies which extend along an east-west trend for over 2,000 metres. The anomalies are interpreted to be sourced from underlying early Jurassic monzodiorite porphyry intrusive (+/-volcanic) rocks, potentially similar in age and lithology to those described at Saddle North1 by GT Gold1. At Castle, high-grade gold float samples were collected within the confines of, or bordering, the above described geochemical anomalies (see Map 2). Colorado’s porphyry-related gold-copper and high-grade gold anomalies have not yet been drill tested. Based upon geological-geochemical-geophysical information, and proximity to the Tatogga Property1, Colorado Resources recognizes good potential for the Kinaskan-Castle Property to host porphyry-style Au-Cu occurrences and/or high-grade Au (Ag) mineralization which may be similar to that recently documented at GT Gold’s1 Saddle North1 and Saddle South1, respectively.
Colorado President and CEO, Robert Shaw, states “Compilation of Colorado’s technical studies completed in 2017 and additional regional geological information, combined with our 2018 IP surveys and the recent information published by GT Gold1 for the Saddle Zone1, has aided in the definition of numerous drill targets at Kinaskan-Castle. Now that Colorado has received diamond drilling permits, we can advance exploration within our advantageous land position in the emerging Saddle1-Castle district. Our Kinaskan-Castle drill permits are valid until March 31, 2023 and we are preparing to initiate our exploration program during the 2019 field season. In this context we want to thank the Tahltan Central Government and the BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources for demonstrating their confidence in Colorado’s ability to complete these future exploration programs in a safe and socially - environmentally respectful manner.”
