Kintavar Confirms Near Surface Mineralization at the Conan Zone; Identifies a Large Copper Soil Anomaly in the Area

MONTREAL, Feb. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kintavar Exploration Inc. (the “Corporation” or “Kintavar”) (KTR.V) (58V.F) is pleased to announce drilling, geochemical and geophysical results for the Conan zone. The Conan zone is located in the North-Western part of the Sherlock corridor where the main Sherlock zone is being explored. The Conan zone was originally discovered in 2018 by following historical soil anomalies and now has been confirmed by drilling. Drill holes MS-18-43 and MS-18-44 intersected the mineralized horizon that was discovered on surface (0.48% Cu over 12.1m, see press release October 15, 2018) and returned assays of 0.33% Cu over 10m and 0.21% Cu over 17.25m respectively. Further drill results from Sherlock area are pending and expected shortly.

Additional geophysical survey (induced polarization) in fall 2018 in the Conan area identified a large region of favorable stratigraphy over 1.5km long and 200m wide which has now been confirmed with the recent drilling to host mineralization both at surface and at depth. The soil geochemistry survey conducted late in 2018 then identified a large soil anomaly in the northern portion which is similar in size and strength to the original soil anomaly that lead to the discovery of the Sherlock zone in 2017 (Figure 1).

"The Conan zone has now become a high priority target with strong potential to identify another zone that shows similar stacking of mineralized horizons to that identified in the main Sherlock zone. The structure, soil anomalies, mineralized boulders on surface, the proximity to the Sherlock zone and now confirmation by drilling gives us all the indicators needed to conduct a detailed surface exploration program in that area in 2019. Furthermore, the success of our trenching and follow up by drilling demonstrates again the presence of mineralization from surface and the efficiency of our exploration approach,” comments Kiril Mugerman, President & CEO of Kintavar.

All samples have been sent and prepared (PREP-31) by ALS Global laboratory in Val-d’Or. The pulp was sent to ALS Global laboratory in Vancouver for copper assays (CU-ICP61), silver assays (AG-ICP61) or a multi-elemental analysis by four acid digestion (ME-ICP61) and spectroscopy (ICP-AES/MS). Samples with assays higher than 10,000 ppm Cu were reanalyzed by atomic absorption (CU-OG62) at the ALS Global Vancouver laboratory. Quality controls include systematic addition of blank samples and certified copper standards to each batch of samples sent to the laboratory.

About Kintavar Exploration & the Mitchi Property

Kintavar Exploration is a Canadian mineral exploration Corporation engaged in the acquisition, assessment, exploration and development of gold and base metal mineral properties. It’s flagship project is the Mitchi property (approx. 30,000 hectares, 100% owned) located west of the Mitchinamecus reservoir, 100 km north of the town of Mont-Laurier. The property covers an area of more than 300 km2 accessible by a network of logging and gravel roads with a hydro-electric power substation located 14 km to the east. The property is located in the north-western portion of the central metasedimentary belt of the Grenville geological province. Many gold, copper, silver and/or manganese mineralized showings have been identified to date, with many characteristics suggesting of a sediment-hosted stratiform copper type mineralization (SSC) in the Eastern portion of the property and Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) and skarn type mineralization in the Western portion. Osisko holds a 2% NSR on 27 claims of the southern portion of the Mitchi property, outside of the sedimentary basin.

    Here’s the formula for paying no federal income taxes on $100,000 a year

    The question of how much can we earn without paying federal income taxes is relatively easy to answer for most people. The standard deduction for a married couple is $24,400 in 2019 (if both are under 65 years old), and the top of the 0% capital-gains tax bracket is $78,750. With our daughter, we also qualify for the child tax credit ($2,000), so we could actually generate another $13,333 per year in dividends or capital gains, taxed at 15%.

The decision by Newsom, sent to PG&E in a letter, complicates the company's push to exit bankruptcy and provide billions of dollars to victims of devastating wildfires in 2017 and 2018 sparked by the utility's power lines.

    Uber submits appeal to regain London taxi license

    Uber submitted an appeal on Friday against a decision by London's transport regulator to strip the taxi app of its right to operate in one its most important markets, setting up a potentially lengthy legal process during which it can continue to take rides. Last month, Transport for London (TfL) refused to grant the Silicon Valley-based company a new license due to what it called a "pattern of failures" on safety and security, the latest stage of a long-running battle with the authorities. Uber, which was also denied a license by TfL in 2017 before a judge restored it on a probationary basis, said it had changed its business model over the last two years and would go further, as it lodged its appeal at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

    Boeing loses battle to develop long-haul plane

    The Boeing Co. has lost out to rival Airbus in the bid to develop an aircraft that Australian flagship carrier Qantas aims to introduce on ultra-long-haul flights. The plane could be used on the Chicago-to-Brisbane route that Qantas will start flying on April 15. Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said of the carrier's choice of the Airbus model aircraft: “Airbus gives us the best possible combination of commercial terms, fuel efficiency, operating cost and customer experience.” Qantas' decision to go with a version of the Airbus A350-1000 comes after Boeing (NYSE: BA) has been in the public spotlight for months as multiple agencies have investigated the development of the troubled Boeing 737 MAX.
