Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, Canada, February 23, 2022. Fokus Mining Corporation (“Fokus” or the “Company“) (TSXV: FKM, OTCQB: FKMCF, FSE: F7E1) is pleased to announce new drilling results on the Hendrick zone of the Galloway Project, located in the Rouyn-Noranda mining sector in Abitibi, Québec.
Hole GA-21-56, located in the central portion of the Hendrick zone, recovered a gold zone of more than 322 m along the hole at a grade of 1.08 g/t AuEq including 2.31 g/t AuEq over 16.5 m, 3.19 g/t AuEq over 12 m and 1.46 AuEq over 13.50 m.
Hole GA-21-58, located at the extreme east of this same showing, revealed a first gold zone of 100.50 meters along the hole, at a grade of 1.18 g/t AuEq including 1.34 g/t AuEq over 58.50 m. This same hole revealed a second gold zone of 108 meters at a grade of 0.89 g/t AuEq including 15 meters at a grade of 1.59 g/t AuEq as well as a third gold section of 70.50 metres at a grade of 0.79 g/t AuEq including 24 meters at 1.26 g/t AuEq.
The Company, as of today, has all completed survey results from the Hendrick area.
Based on these latest results, the silicified pervasive gold envelope of Hendrick, trending ENE, is now recognized over more than 700 metres long and up to more than 300 metres thick. Intersected for the moment up to more than 1,000 metres deep, the Hendrick showing remains open in all directions.
“Drilling Hole GA-21-56, located in the Hendrick area clearly met our expectations. It is reassuring to see a consistency both in the grades and in the thicknesses of the Hendrick zone. However, further drilling will be required to complete an initial estimate of the resource currently underway, under the direction of the external firm InnovExplo,” underlined Jean Rainville, President and Chief Executive Officer.
The Company is also awaiting results from the GA-21-59 survey conducted in a never-before-drilled area, which aimed to test a geological contact associated with a high-intensity magnetic anomaly. The presence of mineralization was observed throughout this hole, which is over 1,500 meters long.
This press release was approved by Gilles Laverdière, P.Geo, Director and Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
