K9 Gold Corp. (TSXV: KNC) (FSE: 5GP) (“K9” or the “Company”) is pleased to report the very encouraging results of its recent trenching program. The company has also applied for a permit to increase its current drilling program from 5,000m to 10,000m.
At the Deliverance Trench, in the center of the property, approximately 15 km southwest of Jumper’s Pond, a 10 m wide moderate to intense oxidation zone was discovered. A major venous system was also encountered with several parallel minor veins. When exposed, the main vein varies from 0.10 m to 0.25 m wide, with crustiform / ginguro to laminated quartz veins. The vein presents an intense oxidation of FeO and an argillaceous alteration, with 5 to 10% of pyrite. The vein is oriented at 128 ° and plunges at -68 ° SW. A series of chip samples were taken from a 5.4 m area at the top of the outcrop, perpendicular to the main vein, as well as a 4.0 m composite sample taken along the direction of the outcrop. vein. Samples were analyzed at Eastern Analytical in Springdale, NL, using the ICP-OES method after four acid digestion, with fire assays for Au.

The Company has also requested approval for an additional 5,000 meters of diamond drilling in the Jumper’s Pond area of the Project.
Jeff Poloni, CEO of K9 Gold, commented: “The significance of the discovery of Deliverance cannot be overstated, with its northwest direction it appears to be a splay of a 6 km long northeast structure. . Similar parallel signatures occur in both Twin Ponds and Moonlight, indicating excellent potential for further discoveries. “
Press releases from other companies active in Newfoundland’s central gold belt continue to raise the profile of this new emerging gold district. For example, on April 28, 2021, Sokoman Minerals announced a new discovery at South Pond on its Moosehead project, immediately adjacent to K9’s Stony Lake property. On May 4, 2021, New Found Gold announced an intersection of 124.4 g / t Au over 17.7 m in hole NFGC-20-59 on its nearby Queensway property.
K9 Gold acknowledges the financial support of the Stony Lake Project by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, through the Department of Industry, Energy and Technology’s Junior Exploration Assistance Program .
About the Stony Lake Project
The Stony Lake project is 100% owned by K9 Gold Corp. It is located in the Exploits subzone of the Cape Ray / Valentine Lake structural corridor in central Newfoundland, parallel to that of New Found Gold’s Queensway project, along prolific Dog Bay. Line. The project covers 13,625 ha and 27 kilometers of favorable trend between the Moosehead discovery of Sokoman immediately to the northeast and the Valentine Lake deposit of Marathon to the southwest. Excellent infrastructure exists on and around the project grounds.
At Stony Lake, ground prospecting and sampling led to the identification of seven large zones of high anomalous to low (up to 4.0 g / t Au) to high (> 4.0 anomalous gold mineralization). g / t Au). Following the prospecting work, a systematic exploration with an airborne and extensive geophysical sampling of the soil at the scale of the property, as well as two large IP ground geophysical survey grids, led to the interpretation of about a hundred Anomalies, at least ten of which are considered high priority drill targets.
A 5,000 meter drilling program is underway on the project.
