New Break identifies up to 70.60 g/t Au, via Grab Sampling near Timmins

Oct 3, 2022

New Break Resources Ltd. ("New Break" or the "Company") (CSE: NBRK) is pleased to report the results of grab and channel sampling programs conducted from June to August 2022, at its 100% owned Moray property ("Moray") located approximately 49 km south of Timmins, Ontario and 32 km northwest of the Young-Davidson Gold Mine operated by Alamos Gold Inc. Gold mineralization at Moray occurs in second order structures interpreted as splays off the Cadillac Larder-Lake Fault Zone, part of the famous Abitibi greenstone belt. 

New Break engaged Orix Geoscience Inc. ("Orix") to oversee the grab and channel sampling programs and complete detailed structural mapping of the Voyager and Fiset areas, which included taking 74 grab samples from various areas of the Moray property, including in and around the historical Trench 12, stripped by SGX Resources Ltd. ("SGX") in 2012 at the Voyager showing ("Trench 12"). The highest-grade grab sample of 70.60 grams per tonne gold ("g/t Au") was located at the south end of the main Trench 12. Five samples from New Break's program yielded assays higher than the highest 21.8 g/t Au assay from the 2012 SGX prospecting and trenching program. 

The remaining samples ranged in gold values from 0.003 to 0.346 g/t Au.

Outcrop and boulder grab sampling results, along with channel sampling results from the historical SGX Trench 12 Voyager showing area are presented in Figures 1 and 2. Figure 1 presents the high-resolution drone imagery from the drone survey completed by Orix, while Figure 2 layers on geology and structure as mapped by Orix.
