Maple Gold Intersects 1.91 g/t Au over 17m in Western Part of Porphyry Zone; with 1.06 g/t Au over 7.0m

May 27, 2020

Maple Gold Mines Ltd. released new assay results from its 2020 winter drilling campaign at the Douay Project. Three drillholes were completed in the western part of the Porphyry Zone where higher than deposit average grades are present and historical drilling is relatively sparse. Highlights for DO-20-283 and DO-20-280 are given below:

➢  DO-20-283 tested a 140m drilling gap near the northern limit of the current (RPA 2019) conceptual pits and cut multiple gold zones, highlighted by 1.91 g/t Au over 17m from 189m downhole (about 155m vertical depth).

➢ Following several additional narrow intercepts over 1 g/t Au, DO-20-283 bottomed in mineralization with 1.06 g/t Au over the last 7m of the hole (1.6 g/t Au over final 2m).

➢ DO-20-283 was terminated early due to the COVID-19 shutdown in Quebec; deepening this drill-hole is warranted (Figs. 1,2).

➢  DO-20-280 cut multiple zones within the top 90m (vertical depth) from surface, with 4m of 0.85 g/t Au, 4m of 1.14 g/t Au and 1.5m of 1.61 g/t Au.

➢  Assays still pending for the bottom of DO-20-280 and DO-20-281 in its entirety. 

Maple Gold's VP, Exploration, Fred Speidel, commented: "I'm encouraged to see these significant new intercepts in relative proximity to indicated resources that are already defined (see Fig 2). There are several more drilling gaps remaining to be tested and the western part of the Porphyry Zone is an area we believe can contribute additional higher-than-deposit-average grade mineralization within the top 50-250 metres from surface."
