RT Minerals Corp. Announces Drilling Underway at Link-Catharine Gold Property, Kirkland Lake

Apr 8, 2021

RT Minerals Corp. says that drilling at RTM's Link-Catharine Gold Property is now underway, with the first drill core having been pulled during the course of the Easter long-weekend.

The first phase of drill-bit exploration for 2021 consists of a proposed seven hole drill program. The first drillhole, CA-21-01 (see details below), is now at 225m and testing an anomaly outlined by a 3D Distributed Array IP geophysical survey completed for the Company in January 2021 (the "Link-Catharine 3D IP Survey"). The Link-Catharine 3D IP Survey was conducted by Canadian Exploration Services Ltd., and is available for interested parties to view by visiting:


Update on Drillhole CA-21-01

CA-21-01 has intersected intermittent quartz veining ranging between several centimeters and up to 1m wide with 3% to 5% sulphides throughout the interval from approximately 123m to 136m. This 13m interval is within green carbonates and a porphyritic dyke. In addition, a second 45m interval between 180m to 225m has intersected like sulphides with numerous narrow quartz stringers within a green carbonate host unit. Due to the favourable host unit and the presence of quartz with 3% to 5% sulphides over this 45m interval, Hole CA-21-01 is continuing to drill to depth. The above sections of drill core stratigraphically aligns with the geophysical IP target (Target "A") delineated by the Link-Catharine 3D IP Survey.

The current drill program is designed, in part, to follow-up on a significant gold discovery of three separate sub-parallel / en-echelon gold sections encountered and disclosed by RTM during the Company's drill program in the fourth quarter of 2020 (see news release dated December 1, 2020). The Q4 2020 drilling encountered intermittent gold mineralization within an area approximately 130m west to east, 100m north to south and to a depth of 140m. Importantly, the potential for further mineralization is open in all directions. The current drill program and/or follow-on phases may also test additional targets on the Link-Catharine Gold Project, as delineated by RTM subsequent to the fourth quarter.
