Toronto, Canada – Treasury Metals Inc. (TSX: TML) (OTCQX: TSRMF) (“Treasury” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from its recently completed 4,360 metre condemnation and exploration drilling program at the Company’s flagship Goliath Gold Project located in Northwestern Ontario. The condemnation program drilled several areas where future mining infrastructure will be situated, including milling and mining operations, and is encouraged by a number of new near surface intersections northeast of the proposed open pit.

The Company is also pleased to report a number of significant intersections in its active infill sampling program which is designed to assay previously drilled but un-sampled drill core in all zones, prioritizing intervals within and near the proposed open pit. Results include TL10-96 intersecting 11.37 g/t over an intersection length of 4.20 m including 34.80 g/t over 1.30 m within the D Zone and TL10-108 intersecting 31.38 g/t over 3.00 m including 93.40 g/t over 1.0 m in a HW Zone.

The first drill results from the Company’s active infill drilling program are expected to be announced in October.

Condemnation Program:
Gold mineralization was intersected in several drill holes approximately 80 to 350 metres from the proposed open pit. Due to the proximity to the proposed open pit, these and future drilling results, may lead to an eastern expansion of the pit and/or underground operations (“East Resource Target”).
There were a number of near surface highlights within the C Zone, located approximately 20-60 metres behind the Main Zone.

  • TL17-445 intersecting 2.26 g/t over an intersection length of 5.83 m with visible gold observed and 16.79 g/t over 2.00 m in the D Zone.
  • TL17-459 intersecting 2.84 g/t over 5.60 m including 13.80 g/t over 1.00 m and 4.00 m of 0.84 g/t in the same hole.
  • TL17-458 intersecting 0.71 g/t over 8.00 m.

These new holes are located close to previously drilled holes TL12-268 which contained 3.53 g/t over 7.00 m and TL12-265 with 0.71 g/t over 8.50 m. In addition, these results within the C Zone are up dip of a potential developing, inferred high-grade shoot, which includes TL200 that intersected 4.78 g/t over 4.50 m and TL205 with 1.98 g/t over 4.50 m, where additional drill holes are planned in the second half of the current drilling program.
The Program also had encouraging results in the same area in the Main Zone (TL17-456, TL17-457) highlighted in the attached image and table (click here to enlarge image).

Chris Stewart, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “After completion of the current infill drilling program in the Main Zone resource area, this East Resource Target will become an area of focus with plans to drill test down dip and along strike to further delineate this exciting target. The additional drilling in this zone has the potential to add near surface mineral resources which may potentially extend the mine life and/or increase production rates from the underground when compared to the proposed mining schedule in the 2017 PEA.”

As anticipated, a number of the condemnation results, where planned mine infrastructure will go, did not identify significant gold mineralization. These included holes TL17-431, TL-17432, TL17-433A and TL17-446 through TL17-454, all of which are situated within the proposed tailings storage facility. The tailings storage facility appears in the attached image above in purple.
Infill Sampling Program:

This program is designed to assay previously drilled but un-sampled drill core in all zones, prioritizing intervals within and near the proposed open pit. Core samples were assayed from 141 drill holes.  The goal of the program is to: 1) potentially increase gold ounces in the next resource estimate expected in first half of 2018; 2) extend existing gold mineralization; and, 3) uncover potential new zones.

The program is reporting a number of significant intersections including:

  • TL10-96 intersecting 11.37 g/t over an intersection length of 4.20 m including 34.80 g/t over 1.30 m within the D Zone. 
  • TL10-108 intersecting 31.38 g/t over 3.00 m including 93.40 g/t over 1.0 m in a HW Zone
  • TL11-171 intersecting 4.97 g/t over 4.43 m including 18.20 g/t over 1.00 m in the B Zone
  • TL11-209A intersecting 8.61 g/t over 4.00 m including 29.80 g/t over 1.00 m in a HW Zone. 

The next steps for the program will be to re-visit the portions of the geological model wherein these new results are located to better understand their impact and develop a follow-up program which may include additional infill core sampling and new drill holes.

Eastern Alternation Corridor:
Other encouraging results from the condemnation program are drill holes, approximately 1.5 km northeast of the proposed open pit and directly east of the tailing storage facility. TL17-439 intersected 1.08 g/t over 2.30 m and 0.49 g/t over 6.80 m, TL17-442 intersected 1.65 g/t over 3.00 m, and TL17-443 intersected 0.79 g/t over 3.18 m and 0.76 g/t over 4.00 m. These holes occurred over a strike length of approximately 100 metres with minimal past drilling. The previous drilling in the 2011 program found several envelopes of gold mineralization including TL11-225 which intersected 1.29 g/t over 3.65 m, and historical Teck hole TL271 encountered 17.36 g/t over 1.60 m and 1.20 g/t over 3.00 m. Additional drilling in future programs will help delineate this mineralization and develop its potential.
All results from the program will be available for viewing in the Complete Assay Table on the Company’s website.

About Treasury Metals Inc.

Treasury Metals Inc. is a gold focused exploration and development company with assets in Canada and is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) under the symbol “TML” and on the OTCQX® Best Market under the symbol TSRMF. Treasury Metals Inc.’s 100% owned Goliath Gold Project in northwestern Ontario is slated to become one of Canada’s next producing gold mines. With first-rate infrastructure currently in place and gold mineralization extending to surface, Treasury Metals plans on the initial development of an open pit gold mine to feed a 2,500 per day processing plant with subsequent underground operations in the latter years of the mine life.

QA/QC Program:
The Company has implemented a quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program to ensure sampling and analysis of all exploration work is conducted in accordance with the CIM Exploration Best Practices Guidelines. The drill core is sawn in half with one-half of the core sample dispatched to Actlabs facility located in Dryden, Ontario. The other half of the core is retained for future assay verification and/or metallurgical testing. Other QA/QC procedures include the insertion of blanks and Canadian Reference Standards for every tenth sample in the sample stream. A quarter core duplicate is assayed every 20th sample. The laboratory has its own QA/QC protocols running standards and blanks with duplicate samples in each batch stream.  Additional checks are routinely run on anomalous values including gravimetric analysis and pulp metallic screen fire assays. Gold analysis is conducted by lead collection, fire assay with atomic absorption and/or gravimetric finish on a 50 gram sample. Check assays are conducted at a secondary ISO certified laboratory (in this case AGAT Laboratories located in Mississauga, Ontario). Metallic screen fire assaying is now completed using a 2.0 kg sample and four 50 gm fire assays of the pass (-100 mesh) pulverized material.
