Signature Resources accelerates Initial NI 43-101 for Lingman in NWO

Feb 9, 2022

Signature Resources Ltd. has announce the acceleration of an initial NI 43-101 resource estimate at its 100%-owned Lingman Lake Gold Project in Ontario. The acceleration results from new evaluation work completed in January 2022, on all exploration data, including historic data compilation completed throughout 2021.

During 2021, Signature embarked on and completed extensive exploration data gathering and historical data compilation of Lingman Lake. This work prompted the Company to conduct a re-evaluation in January 2022, of all exploration data, with a fresh perspective. This re-evaluation led to the decision to accelerate our plans to commission an initial NI 43-101 resource estimate ("43-101") for Q2/22.

The planned 43-101 will provide Signature with several key insights to position the Company's 2022 exploration strategy, including:

  • Establishing a modern NI 43-101 compliant resource that is more representative of the existing mineralization;
  • Providing a better understanding of the associated local geology and geologic controls of the mineralization; and
  • Positioning the team to be able to continue to unlock and extend the pending initial resource with improved geological guidance for drilling as testing and developing new drill targets at Lingman Lake (see Figure 2).

"2021 was a tremendously valuable year for Signature in positioning for further success and I commend the entire team. Throughout last year, Signature established and commenced exploration diamond drill operations in parallel with completing new geophysical surveys and bringing historical data into modern formats. Kicking things off in 2022, the data compilation from 2021 has now provided the essential components to evaluate the entire data set objectively. This key evaluation is now revealing the potential scale of the known mineralization and initiating a complete review of what has been discovered to date at Lingman Lake." -Robert Vallis, President, CEO, and Director

"I am extremely pleased with the initial results from the work that the team has done under the direction of Management at Signature , despite facing some unique challenges over the past 12 months. It is only because of the multidisciplinary expertise of our Management, Board of Directors and Advisory group that we were able to navigate these challenges and lay the foundation for future success. More importantly, this group has helped us understand the potential at both Lingman Lake and the entire Greenstone belt of which we have majority control. It is especially important to recognize the geological expertise that we have on our team at this critical stage of our Company's evolution." -Paolo Lostritto, Chairman and Director
