Big Gold results from Infill sampling of historic core at Shebandowan Project

Feb 13, 2024

Big Gold Inc. is pleased to announce positive assay results from its previously announced infill sampling program at the Tabor Property , located in the heart of the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt, northwest of Thunder Bay.

The Infill Sampling was designed to analyze previously sampled and unsampled intervals of historical drill core with the objective of adding new gold mineralization at the Project.

Drill hole RS-83-01 returned significant mineralization, intersecting 1.5 metres ("m") of 10.9 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold ("Au"), 34.1 g/t silver ("Ag"), 0.5 % copper ("Cu"), and 1.8 % zinc ("Zn"), including 0.8 m of 20.8 g/t Au, 56.9 g/t Ag, 0.7% Cu, and 3.3% Zn in previously sampled core.

"Utilizing the Infill Sampling results with the 2023 desktop compilation and surface sampling results will help us better define our first drilling campaign targets in the East Divide zone. We are aiming to kickstart this drilling in mid-2024, after completion of a ground IP survey," remarked Scott Walters, CEO of Big Gold. He added, "The assay results from the Infill Sampling have improved our geological understanding of the zone and suggest that there is a high likelihood that Goldshore's gold trend continues onto our property, something we hope the drilling will attest to in 2024."

Infill Sampling and Exploration Plan Summary

The Infill Sampling program gave Big Gold access to historic core samples drilled in the East Divide area of the Project in 1983 from the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines ("MNDM") Thunder Bay Core Library, which is home to an extensive collection of approximately 100,000 m of historic core from the Thunder Bay Mining District.
