Transition Provides Update on Summer Exploration Programs on Key Projects including Sudbury

Aug 31, 2021

"Despite the challenges brought on by the ongoing pandemic and forest fires, we have been making great progress on many of our key properties and are looking forward to receiving pending assays from our summer work programs," Company CEO, Scott McLean, said. 

Transition Metals Corp is providing an update on exploration programs underway on key projects in Ontario, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland.

"This work has continued to expand existing targets and outline new targets for further exploration. As a project-generator, we welcome discussions with potential partners on all of these advancing projects."


Sawmill Au-Cu - Sudbury Area

At the Sawmill Au-Cu project located 70 kilometres northeast of Sudbury, the Company has completed a program of trenching and mapping to test gold targets highlighted by promising bedrock grab and channel sampling results in the fall of 2020 (see press release January 14, 2021). Two areas were mechanically stripped and channel sampled; the first completed around the Galena Vein showing, where grab sampling previously completed by the Company returned values up to 13.2 g/t Au, 125.0 g/t Ag, 1.28% Cu and 5.38% Pb; and the second at the newly discovered JBM Showing where grab samples recovered in the Fall of 2020 returned assays of up to 38.7 g/t Au and 30.7 g/t Au. A combined total of 487 samples were collected and sent in for assay; results are pending.

Aylmer IOCG - Sudbury Area

At the Aylmer IOCG Project, located approximately 10 kilometres east of the Sawmill Project, mapping and geochemical sampling have been carried out to qualify the characteristics of identified breccia zones. A zone of pyrite/chalcopyrite mineralization hosted within strongly altered and brecciated metasedimentary rocks was mechanically stripped and channel sampled (see picture below). A total of 218 samples have been submitted for analysis with results pending. The mineralization is interpreted to by coincident with large scale structures, brecciation and a corridor of elevated conductivity identified from the airborne Mobile MT geophysical survey flown in late 2020.
