Rockridge Stakes Additional Ground at the Knife Lake Copper Project, Saskatchewan

Share

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rockridge Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ROCK) (OTCQB: RRRLF) (Frankfurt: RR0) (“Rockridge” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has recently acquired additional mineral rights through staking at its Knife Lake Copper Project located in Saskatchewan, Canada (the “Knife Lake Project” or “Property”). The Knife Lake Project, now consisting of 81 dispositions totaling 55,471 hectares (137,069 acres), is an advanced-stage copper, silver, zinc and cobalt exploration property in Saskatchewan. With the recent staking, the Company has increased the project area by 70% from 32,663 hectares (80,712 acres).

Based on encouraging observations made during the current drill program the newly acquired claims are considered to be highly prospective for VMS mineralization. The staking completed has added to the land package south of the Knife Lake deposit and Gilbert Lake target areas, which is where most of the drilling in this current drill program has been focused. Additional claims from this staking have also strengthened the land package to the northwest of the Knife Lake deposit where base metals have been encountered historically. The southern property border is now only 5 km from a high-voltage powerline.

Highlights

  • The Company has increased the project area by 70% from 32,663 hectares (80,712 acres) to 55,471 hectares (137,069 acres)

  • Recently expanded the drill program from 1,600 metres (6 to 8 drill holes) to 2,100 metres (10 to 12 drill holes) after encountering visible mineralization in the first several holes

  • Drilling will focus on discovering VMS style copper deposits along newly defined conductors as well as at depth, underneath the Knife Lake VMS deposit

  • Gilbert Lake North and South targets are being drill tested and represent new exploratory target areas with very little historical exploration carried out

  • Infill drilling is also planned in the immediate area of the 2019 maiden resource at the Knife Lake deposit

  • Rockridge completed first work program in the last ~20 years in 2019, with highlight results including 2.03% Cu, 9.88 g/t Ag, 0.19 g/t Au, 0.36% Zn, and 0.01% Co (2.42% CuEq) over 37.6m beginning at 11.2m in hole KF19003

  • Deposit is thought to be a remobilized portion of a “primary” VMS deposit; most of the historical work has consisted of shallow drilling at the deposit area with little regional work carried out and limited deeper drilling below the deposit

  • Over 300 holes provided data for first NI 43-101 resource estimate of the shallow Knife Lake deposit

  • Knife Lake NI 43-101 resource estimate provides excellent anchor for Project: Ind. resources: 3.8 MT at 1.02% Cu Eq. Or 3.8 MT at 0.83% Cu, 3.7 g/t Ag, 0.097 g/t Au, 82 ppm Co,1740.7 ppm Zn. Inf. resources: 7.9 MT at 0.67% Cu Eq. Or 7.9 MT at 0.53% Cu, 2.4 g/t Ag, 0.084 g/t Au, 53.1 ppm Co, 1454.9 ppm Zn.

  • There is strong discovery potential in and around the deposit as well as at regional targets on the Property; modern exploration techniques and methods are being utilized with a goal of making new discoveries

  • Excellent regional infrastructure with a high-voltage powerline 5 km away from the claim package

Jonathan Wiesblatt, CEO of Rockridge Resources, commented: “The increased project area by 70% and expanded winter / spring drilling program is a clear indication of our overall confidence in the future success at Knife Lake. The most recent drill program is focused on new, highly prospective regional targets 5 – 6 km west of the Knife Lake deposit area. These new target areas, known as Gilbert Lake South and Gilbert Lake North, were previously undrilled and drilling in the current program has intersected visual indications of VMS-style mineralization. Through the staking of additional ground at Knife Lake we have added highly prospective stratigraphy to the project including the southern strike extension of both the Gilbert and Scimitar trends."

Knife Lake Geology and History:

The Knife Lake Project is interpreted to be a remobilized VMS deposit. The stratabound mineralized zone is approximately 15m thick and contains copper, silver, zinc, gold and cobalt mineralization which dips 30° to 50° eastward over a known strike-length within Rockridge’s claim area of 3,700 metres, and a known average down-dip extension of approximately 300 metres.

Knife Lake Deposit Map:
https://www.rockridgeresourcesltd.com/_resources/projects/KnifeLake-Fig2.jpg

The deposit is hosted by felsic to intermediate volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks which have been metamorphosed to upper amphibolite facies. The deposit contains VMS mineralogy which has been significantly modified and partially remobilized during the emplacement of granitic rocks. The mineralization straddles the boundary between two rock units and occurs on both limbs of an interpreted overturned fold.

The Company completed twelve holes consisting of 1,053 metres of diamond drilling in the 2019 winter drilling program. This represented the first drilling on the property since 2001 and had two primary objectives: confirm the tenor of mineralization reported by previous operators and expand known zones of mineralization. Highlights from the drill program included previously reported hole KF19003 which intersected net-textured to semi-massive sulphide mineralization from 11.2m to 48.8m downhole. This 37.6 metre interval returned 2.03% Cu, 0.19 g/t Au, 9.88 g/t Ag, 0.36% Zn, and 0.01% Co for an estimated 2.42% CuEq. Additionally, previously reported drill hole KF19001 intersected net-textured to fracture-controlled sulphide mineralization from 7.5 metres to 40.6 metres downhole. This 33.1 metre interval returned 1.28% Cu, 0.12 g/t Au, 4.80 g/t Ag, 0.13% Zn, and 0.01% Co for an estimated 1.49% CuEq.

Compilation and initial modelling indicate potential for expansion of the deposit at depth. The recent drilling focused on resource upgrade as well as infill drilling between historical holes. The program gave the Company’s technical team valuable insights into the property geology, alteration, and mineralization that will be applied to future regional exploration on the highly prospective and underexplored land package.

The Knife Lake deposit is a near surface VMS deposit starting a few metres below surface and the deposit remains open at depth and along strike for potential resource expansion. Recently Rockridge announced a maiden NI 43-101 resource estimate for the Knife Lake deposit (see the News Release dated August 14th, 2019) which consisted of an indicated resource of 3.8 million tonnes at 1.02% CuEq at a 0.4% CuEq cut-off (3.8 MT at 0.83% Cu, 3.7 g/t Ag, 0.097 g/t Au, 82 ppm Co, 1740.7 ppm Zn). In addition, there is an inferred resource of 7.9 million tonnes at 0.67% CuEq at a 0.4% CuEq cut-off (7.9 MT at 0.53% Cu, 2.4 g/t Ag, 0.084 g/t Au, 53.1 ppm Co, 1454.9 ppm Zn). Refer to the NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Mineral Resource Estimate for the Knife Lake Property, Saskatchewan dated September 27, 2019 filed on Sedar.
