Exploits Discovery Corp. (CSE:NFLD) continues to make strong progress with its drilling and exploration work in 2021 with a major focus on the prospective Appleton Fault in Newfoundland.
The company has completed 10,481m of drilling since June 2021, 17,709 line km of VTEM airborne surveys covering 1,699 sq. km; conducted eight discrete target reviews with Goldspot Discoveries Corp on Exploits’ ground, and 10 discrete field prospecting programmes.
A review of tenure has reiterated the company’s focus on its 37 km (strike length) of the Appleton Fault. With this in mind, the company has applied for three new drill permits along the Appleton Fault located within the Dog Bay claim group.
- – Exploits has completed 10,481m of drilling across three of five currently permitted drill targets in the Exploits Subzone, Newfoundland. Building on our understanding from 2021, Exploits has initiated permitting for three additional targets along the interpreted Appleton fault on our Dog Bay claims.
– Phase II drilling at Schooner North/South has commenced and preparation is underway for drilling at our Little Joanna target.
– Exploits has completed 17,709 line km of VTEM survey including full coverage of the interpreted Appleton Fault on northern claims. Quality geophysical data has proven to be critical to discovery on the Appleton Fault targets.
– The company has drilling planned into the spring of 2022 and with approximately $13 million in cash; and is well funded to aggressively pursue these targets.
“2021 to date has been a very busy and successful year in progressing our Exploits Subzone Projects with drilling, surface exploration and airborne geophysics,” President and CEO, Jeff Swinoga, said.
“It has also been frustrating, with a slow start to the drill program and long wait times for assays to be returned. As with any gold rush, the high volume of drilling activity has hit a logjam at the labs, and, like our shareholders, we are disappointed to not have a consistent stream of results to deliver following all the hard work by our team. That said, Exploits continues to make great progress on our projects in pursuit of discovery in 2021/22, with continued focus on the prospective Appleton Fault Zone.”
