TORONTO, ON–(Marketwired – August 14, 2017) –
- 4,500 m3 successfully stripped to expose the bedrock for detailed mapping and sampling at Silicon Ridge
- Complete air photo survey conducted by drone of the Project Area
- Company is applying to drill up to 2,500m across very promising gold showings at Radio Hill in Ontario
- Targeting priority structural targets along the interpreted western continuation of the Porcupine Destor Fault Zone (PDFZ) across property
Rogue Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: RRS) (“Rogue” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce completion of the initial stripping across its 100% owned Silicon Ridge Project (“Project”), located approximately 42 kilometres (“km”) north of Baie-Saint Paul, Québec, and 4 km northeast of Sitec’s operating silica mine.
Working with Enterprise Jacques Dufour et Fils (“EJD”) as its Contract Operator, Rogue completed the previously approved, fully funded exploration work program on the Project (see April 27, 2017 news release). This work included the stripping of overburden to expose the bedrock for detailed mapping and sampling and to confirm the depth of the overburden in the area. This information will benefit the Company by providing important data regarding the continuity of quartzite quality and to improve the estimate of overburden volumes to be removed from the potential first area to be quarried. Once permitted and if a positive development decision is made (now expected in 2018), this stripped quartzite would be the site of initial production.
“EJD did a very good job on this initial work, safely completing the scope provided to them. I visited the site last Thursday and Friday and saw firsthand the continuity of the quartzite and the care shown for the local environment and neighbours during the project,” said Sean Samson, President and CEO of Rogue.
Radio Hill Exploration
Rogue is excited to announce a plan to drill at its Radio Hill property, which comprises a 1,800 hectare land package located 85 km southwest of Timmins, Ontario. The Company plans to drill priority structural targets along the interpreted western extension of the Porcupine-Destor Fault Zone (“PDFZ”), one of the most productive gold structures in the world. There are toll processors throughout the area and drilling in their proximity is consistent with Rogue’s strategy of leveraging assets with a view to identifying positive cash flow opportunities. This has also been a very active district recently for transactions and investment, with Tahoe Resources (formerly Lakeshore Gold’s Timmins West mine, 45 km away, plus the recently discovered 144 Exploration Area), Goldcorp’s acquisition of the Borden Gold Project (85 km away) and Probe Metals’ recent acquisition of the Ivanhoe Project located to Radio Hill’s west.
The Company is in the process of applying for exploration permits and plans to initiate the drill program in the fourth quarter of this year.
“We are excited to get back drilling and begin to explore the gold potential of Radio Hill. Much value generation occurs in our industry, especially in the PDFZ, from the drill-bit. If we find gold here, we should be able to monetize it,” said Sean Samson. “As mentioned last Thursday, Rogue is continuing with a re-prioritization of opportunities across our portfolio and externally, following our stated criteria this gold drilling is in line with that strategy.”
