ROUYN-NORANDA, Québec, Oct. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radisson Mining Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RDS, OTC: RMRDF): (“Radisson” or the “Company") is pleased to announce significant high-grade gold intercepts from the 127,600 m exploration drill program completed this summer at its 100% owned O’Brien gold project located along the Larder-Lake-Cadillac Break (see location map 1 and location map 2), halfway between Rouyn-Noranda and Val-d’Or in Quebec, Canada.

Key highlights

Significant intercepts from resource expansion drilling along high-grade trend #1

  • 18.76 g/t Au over 3.10 m including 52.50 g/t Au over 0.90 m (OB-21-269)

  • 18.45 g/t Au over 2.20 m including 43.00 g/t Au over 0.90 m and;

  • 11.58 g/t Au over 2.00 m including 21.40 g/t Au over 1.00 m (OB-21-265)

  • 16.45 g/t Au over 2.00 m including 26.90 g/t Au over 1.00 m (OB-21-262)

  • 15.31 g/t Au over 2.00 m including 26.30 g/t Au over 1.00 m (OB-21-307)

Current resources along trend #1 are limited down to a vertical depth of approximately 600 m. Drilling completed during this campaign expanded high-grade gold mineralization 350 m below current resources down to 950 m vertical depth. Results have been obtained over a strike length of 100 m, including amongst others 66.70 g/t Au over 4.70 m, 34.71 g/t Au over 3.00 m, 24.22 g/t Au over 3.00 m and 19.43 g/t Au over 3.40 m.

Results are pending for 10 additional directional drill holes (5,000 m) along trend #2 with visible gold showings in 6 of those holes.

Over the last months, our team has been focused at executing the 127,600 m drill campaign completed this summer. The main objective of the program was to expand the footprint of the O’Brien gold deposit in a 1.2 km corridor located east of the richest mine by grade in Quebec. This corridor represents less than 25% of the prolific package owned by Radisson along the Larder-Lake-Cadillac Break and results have been impressive with 152 intercepts grading over 5 g/t Au within 246 holes published. Results from the 42,200 metres drilled along Trend #1 have been spectacular with 60 intercepts over 5 g/t Au, including 27 intercepts over 10 g/t Au within 77 drill holes. High-grade gold mineralization has now been expanded by more than 350 m below current resources along Trend #1.

Our team is now focused on incorporating the drill program and historical results into our geological model. We expect Trend #1 and Trend #2 expansion drilling to contribute significantly to the resource estimate update targeted for completion in the first quarter of 2023.” Commented Denis Lachance, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer.

QA/QC

All drill cores in this campaign are NQ in size. Assays were completed on sawn half-cores, with the second half kept for future reference. The samples were analyzed using standard fire assay procedures with Atomic Absorption (AA) finish at ALS Laboratory Ltd, in Val-d’Or, Quebec. Samples yielding a grade higher than 5 g/t Au Au were analyzed a second time by fire assay with gravimetric finish at the same laboratory. Mineralized zones containing visible gold were analyzed with metallic sieve procedure. Standard reference materials, blank samples and duplicates were inserted prior to shipment for quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program.

All statements, other than statements of historical fact, contained in this press release including, but not limited to, those relating to the intended use of proceeds of the Offering, the development of the O’Brien project and generally, the above “About Radisson Mining Resources Inc.” paragraph which essentially describes the Corporation’s outlook, constitute “forward-looking information” or “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of applicable securities laws, and are based on expectations, estimates and projections as of the time of this press release. Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by the Corporation as of the time of such statements, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies.

By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and risks exist that estimates, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved or that assumptions do not reflect future experience. Forward-looking statements are provided for the purpose of providing information about management’s endeavours to develop the O’Brien project and, more generally, its expectations and plans relating to the future. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements as a number of important risk factors and future events could cause the actual outcomes to differ materially from the beliefs, plans, objectives, expectations, anticipations, estimates, assumptions and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements.
