West Vancouver, British Columbia – May 1, 2023 – Magnum Goldcorp Inc. (the “Company” or “Magnum”) announces that, subject to regulatory approval, the Company intends to proceed with a flow through and a non-flow through non-brokered private placement. Under the flow through private placement (the “FT Private Placement”), the Company intends to raise up to $400,000 by the issuance of 8,000,000 flow through shares (the “FT Shares”) at $0.05 per FT Share. Under the non-flow through private placement (the “NFT Private Placement”), the Company intends to raise up to $300,000 by the issuance of 10,000,000 non-flow through units (the “NFT Units”) at $0.03 per NFT Unit. Each NFT Unit will consist of one common share and one share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase an additional common share for a period of 2 years at an exercise price of $0.05 in the first 12 months, and at an exercise price of $0.10 in the second 12 months. With respect to these private placements, the Company may pay finders’ fees in the amount of 10%, payable in cash or NFT Units, based on the sale of the FT Shares and NFT Units purchased by subscribers introduced to the Company by such finders.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from these private placements for further exploration on its “LH Property” and for general working capital purposes.
Magnum has an approved 2-year Multi-Year Area Based (MYAB) work permit for its LH Property issued by the Ministry of Energy and Mines and Petroleum Resources. Under this approval, Magnum proposes to drill an additional 6 diamond drill holes from two existing pads. Dependent upon results, an additional pad may be constructed from which additional holes may be drilled. The program is expected to commence in late June – early July dependent upon snow melt conditions.
The proposed 2023 program emphasizes work in anticipation of determination of an initial Resource Estimate. Approximately 1,125 m of drilling is proposed, anticipated to return additional moderate to high-grade, gold-bearing mineralized intercepts. The resulting cumulative gold-bearing mineralized volume is expected to extend over approximately 75 m east-west and to a vertical depth of approximately 50 m below surface along the LH vein system.
The LH Underground workings exposed a pyrrhotite-enriched, gold-bearing vein system, subsequently confirmed by 24 diamond drill holes completed in 2015 (10), 2017 (5), 2019 (4) and 2022 (5) (see the Company’s News Releases dated August 18, 2015, February 8, 2018, November 25, 2019 and July 4, 2022, respectively). The Company believes a strong positive correlation exists between pyrrhotite abundance and strongly elevated to highly anomalous gold values. As a result, prominent magnetic anomalies are interpreted to be spatially associated with, and correlated to, strongly elevated to high-grade gold content. Therefore, sub-surface 3D magnetic anomalies represent high priority drill targets.
In addition, arsenopyrite is often a pathfinder for gold mineralization. Therefore, intercepts of semi-massive to massive pyrrhotite and/or arsenopyrite mineralization visually identified in drill core are expected to return strongly elevated to highly anomalous gold values on subsequent analysis.
This news release has been reviewed and approved by Rick Walker, P. Geo., who is acting as the Company’s Qualified Person for the LH Property project, in accordance with regulations under NI 43-101.
The LH Property is a gold exploration property consisting of 19 contiguous crown granted claims and 7 mineral claims, located approximately 7 km south of Silverton, British Columbia, on the east side of Slocan Lake. Access to the LH Property is via Highway 6 for 1.1 km south of Silverton and then via Red Mountain Road for 1.6 km to the Hewitt Mine Road., then along the Hewitt Mine Road for approximately 3 km to the Branch 200 Road. The Branch 200 road and, subsequently, the old mine road can be utilized by ATVs for approximately 4 km into the upper Fingland Creek drainage.
