ECR Minerals #ECR – Half-yearly financial results for the six months ended 31 March 2022

LONDON: 30 JUNE 2022 – ECR Minerals plc, the gold exploration and development company, is pleased to announce unaudited half-yearly financial results for the six months ended 31 March 2022 for the Company as consolidated with its subsidiaries (the “Group”), along with a review of significant developments during the period and subsequently.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The gold exploration boom in Victoria, Australia has continued, with material progress made at the Company’s flagship Creswick and Bailieston assets. ECR’s acquisition of the Brewing Lane and Nagambie-Rushworth Road properties has enhanced access and exploration opportunities at both projects.
  • In December 2022, the Company was notified it had been granted licence EL006907 linking Creswick to Ballarat East-Nerrina. The board views this as a key step in building our understanding of the Dimocks Main Shale anomaly and developing ECR’s Creswick project. Also granted was licence EL007484 in East Victoria, situated 50km north of Bairnsdale in the east of the state of Victoria encompassing the alluvial fields of Swifts Creek and the Mid to Upper reaches of the Tambo River.
  • Despite severe delays in receiving assay results during the period due to the impact of COVID-19, the results we did receive from our ongoing drilling campaigns at Bailieston and HR3 delivered substantial progress in both gold grades and our understanding of the regional geology.
  • Drilling and subsequent 3D modelling of HR3 drillholes BH3DD005, BH3DD006 and BH3DD007 earlier in the year revealed a moderate south plunging fold underneath and along strike of the Maori Reef workings. In November 2022 we reported initial results from BH3DD009, the first hole completed, which returned 0.7m @ 28.06g/t Au from 52.7m depth from the Maori Reef. Holes BH3DD010 and BH3DD011 reported consistent gold grades in December 2022, while soil sampling results revealed a larger area of anomalies, supporting a dilational jog model theory developed by our head geologist Adam Jones. In March 2022 further data identified five mineralised zones, all correlated to the Maori Anticline (within the Maori Reef), plus consistent gold grades were identified in hole BH3DD012 and visible gold in hole BH3DD034 (see announcement dated 14 March 2022 for full details).
  • In February 2022, exploration licences EPM27901, EPM27902 and EPM27903 were granted to 100% owned subsidiary LUX Exploration Limited (“LUX”), in the Lolworth Region, North Queensland. The licences are located approximately 120km west of the historic Charters Towers Gold Mine in North Queensland and cover 964 km2. Historic stream sediment sampling indicates that the Lolworth Range area is prospective for gold, tungsten and tin.
  • During the period under review, Dr Trevor George Davenport was appointed as an Independent Non-Executive Director. Most recently Dr Davenport consulted for Kryso Resources Plc at the time of the takeover of control of the company by China Nonferrous International Mining Co. Ltd in 2011. In January 2022, Andrew Scott, a communications specialist and media professional was also appointed as a Non-Executive Director. The sad loss of former CEO Craig Brown presented a substantial challenge to the management team. Nonetheless, a committee was formed with Chairman David Tang, and Non-Exec Directors Dr Davenport and Adam Jones, to manage the company up to the appointment of a new CEO.
  • Post-period end, on 11 April 2022 Andrew Haythorpe was appointed as CEO (currently a non-board position). Andrew has more than 20 years of experience managing listed gold miners and explorers on the ASX and TSX as well as working as a mining analyst and actively exploring for gold as a geologist.
  • Post-period end, Ludevico Estacio, the Chairman of Philippines company Cordillera Tiger Gold Resources, Inc., (in which ECR had a 25% shareholding), agreed to sell his shares (1,499,996 in total) to ECR. The consideration of 1,499,996.00 Philippine pesos (approximately £22,000) was paid for in cash, and ECR now holds 2,333,329 Ordinary Shares in Cordillera representing 70% of its issued share capital (see announcement dated 27 April 2022 for full details).
  • Group comprehensive expenses of £324,333 are reported for the six months ended 31 March 2022 (£468,112 for the six months ended 31 March 2021) and net assets of £7,536,209 at 31 March 2022 (£6,442,465 at 31 March 2021).
  • A Group Operating Loss is reported for the six months ended 31 March 2022 of £552,202, compared with £403,079 for the six months ended 31 March 2021.
  • Despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy, the board believes ECR is in a robust financial position and continues to provide shareholders with exposure to an exciting range of gold projects.

FINANCIAL RESULTS

For the six months ended 31 March 2022 the unaudited financial statements of the Group recorded a total comprehensive expense of £324,333.

The Group’s total assets were £7,674,007 at 31 March 2022, compared with £6,522,307 at 31 March 2021. The increase in total assets has occurred largely due to the increase in exploration assets following the capitalisation of exploration expenditure during the period as a result of the current aggressive drilling programme.

The Group held £1,204,289 of cash and cash equivalents at 31 March 2022, compared with £3,928,905 at 31 March 2021.

REVIEW OF PRINCIPAL DEVELOPMENTS DURING THE PERIOD AND SUBSEQUENTLY

The six months to 31 March 2022 and the subsequent period since have been notable as a period of great progress, sadness and change. Former CEO Craig Brown died suddenly at the end of October 2021, and while a committee including Chairman David Tang, and non-exec directors Trevor Davenport and Adam Jones continued to run the Company without interruption, the shock of his sudden loss remains with us to this day. Nonetheless he would be pleased and proud with the operational progress to date, and we believe he would be delighted with the calibre of his recently appointed successor Andrew Haythorpe.

During the period under review, Dr Trevor Davenport was appointed as an Independent Non-Executive Director. Most recently Dr Davenport consulted for Kryso Resources Plc at the time of the takeover of control of the company by China Nonferrous International Mining Co. Ltd in 2011.

In January 2022, Andrew Scott, a communications specialist and media professional was also appointed as a Non-Executive Director. Andrew is well known in the UK and across Australia as a business and markets interviewer. He has worked at Sky News UK, Reuters and Proactive as well as in presenting and media roles at ITV and Television NZ (TVNZ).

Post-period end, on 11 April 2022 Andrew Haythorpe was appointed as Chief Executive Officer (currently a non-board position). Andrew has more than 20 years of experience managing listed gold miners and explorers on the ASX and TSX as well as working as a mining analyst and actively exploring for gold as a geologist. His board experience includes the role of Managing Director at TSX and ASX-listed Crescent Gold Limited, which started with a market capitalisation of $8 million and, under his leadership, reached $250 million within four years. He was also Managing Director of ASX-listed gold producer Michelago Resources and is currently the Managing Director of GoldOz Limited, a gold company seeking to relist on the ASX. As an analyst, Andrew was considered a global leader in the Industrial Minerals sector and rated 12th best gold analyst at Hartley Poynton Ltd.

Currently, through ECR’s wholly owned Australian subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”), the board remains focused on the fast-paced drilling programme at Bailieston and Creswick. During the period, large quantities of drill core have been amassed for technical review, processing and assay testing. Although, the impact of intermittent COVID lockdowns on the region has resulted in delays to assay results, our geologist Adam Jones and his team continue to make solid progress. In particular, the ongoing drilling campaign at Bailieston and HR3 delivered substantial progress in both gold grades and our understanding of the regional geology.

Post-period end, Ludevico Estacio, the Chairman of Philippines company Cordillera Tiger Gold Resources, Inc., (in which ECR had a 25% shareholding), agreed to sell his shares (1,499,996 in total) to ECR. The consideration of 1,499,996.00 Philippine pesos (approximately £22,000) was paid for in cash, and ECR now holds 2,333,329 Ordinary Shares in Cordillera representing 70% of its issued share capital (see announcement dated 27 April 2022 for full details of this transaction).

Creswick

At Creswick, in December MGA was notified that license EL006907 linking Creswick to Ballarat East-Nerrina had been granted. The board views this as a key step in building our understanding of the Dimocks Main Shale anomaly and developing ECR’s Creswick asset. The Company has also applied to renew Creswick licence EL006184 for another five years and is awaiting final approval. As the current incumbent, we have first rights over the licence, and our geologist Adam Jones plans to develop the project with soil sampling programmes in the vicinity of the quartz mineralisation identified in the 2021 diamond drilling campaign and to test for sub-cropping gold shoots. The Brewing Lane property at Springmount contains numerous abandoned historical gold workings with some underground exposures that offer opportunities for mapping and sampling, followed up by drilling. The team will also commence evaluation of prospects in the recently approved EL006907 area using exploration techniques that proved successful on EL006184. 

Bailieston

Notwithstanding the delays in receiving assay results, MGA is continuing to progress with drilling at the Bailieston tenements (EL5433), focussing on the Maori Reef and parallel reef systems within the HR3 goldfield. The geology team is also making progress with near-term plans to re-enter and continue exploration on the Blue Moon prospect located on the southern extent of EL5433.  Drilling and subsequent 3D modelling of HR3 drillholes BH3DD005, BH3DD006 and BH3DD007 earlier in the year revealed a moderate south plunging fold underneath and along strike of the Maori Reef workings (see announcement dated 1 July 2022). In November 2022 we reported initial results from the first hole completed, (BH3DD009), which returned 0.7m @ 28.06g/t Au from 52.7m depth from the Maori Reef. Holes BH3DD010 and BH3DD011 reported consistent gold grades in December, while soil sampling results revealed a larger area of anomalies, supporting a dilational jog model theory developed by Adam Jones. In March 2022 further data received identified five mineralised zones, all correlated to the Maori Anticline (within the Maori Reef), plus consistent gold grades in hole BH3DD012 and visible gold in hole BH3DD034.

Post-period end, we reported the highest grade gold intercept yet at hole BH3DD027, HR3 with 0.2m @ 52.5 g/t Au from 126.3m depth. This was followed by HR3 drill hole BH3DD022, which returned a result of 0.5m @ 12.74 g/t Au (see announcements dated 22 April 2022 and 4 May 2022).

Lolworth District of North Queensland, Australia.

In February 2022, exploration licences EPM27901, EPM27902 and EPM27903 were granted to ECR’s 100% owned subsidiary LUX Exploration Limited, in the Lolworth Region, North Queensland. The area contains metamorphic rocks of the Charters Towers Province, that host large historical gold producing centres such as Charters Tower (6.6M Oz Au) and Ravenswood (>1M Oz Au). The structural and basement geology is poorly understood in the area, suggesting numerous opportunities to find new deposits. The area also contains reported rhyolitic volcanism, which plays host to intrusion-related breccia gold deposits in the region such as Mount Leyshon (>2.5M oz) and Mount Wright (>1M oz). Historic samples also highlighted tin-tungsten mineralisation in the western areas of EPM27902. Reports show no detailed follow-up work has been undertaken.

Exploration licence EL007484 in East Victoria was also granted in February 2022. This licence area is situated 50km north of Bairnsdale in the east of the state of Victoria encompassing the alluvial fields of Swifts Creek and the Mid to Upper reaches of the Tambo River.

The Directors believe exploration licence EPM27901, 27902 and 27903 offer significant potential for precious and base metal discoveries in an area of Australia where multiple large-scale discoveries have already been made.

Outlook

After a challenging transition period, the directors of ECR Minerals plc are excited about the Company’s near-term and future prospects under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer Andrew Haythorpe. As eagerly anticipated assay results begin to arrive, our board, geologists, drilling team and wider staff at the Bendigo headquarters are enthused by the possibility of developing a resource at both the Bailieston and Creswick projects. We are equally encouraged about the prospectivity demonstrated by our new licences at Lolworth Range, North Queensland and our East Victoria exploration licence at Tambo.

These factors, together with the potential to realise shareholder value from our Danglay asset in the Philippines, could result in an exciting year ahead as ECR’s operations and opportunities evolve.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Three Exploration licences granted in the Lolworth Region, North Queensland

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focussed on gold exploration in Australia, is pleased to announce that exploration licences EPM27901, EPM27902 and EPM27903 have been granted to its subsidiary LUX Exploration Limited (“LUX”), in the Lolworth Region, North Queensland.

LUX  is a wholly owned subsidiary of ECR with a specific focus on exploration projects in the North Queensland region in Australia.

ECR Chairman David Tang commented: “I am delighted to announce that the Lolworth Range license applications have been granted. Once again, along with our Head Geologist Adam Jones, our former CEO Craig Brown was instrumental in bringing LUX and the Lolworth Range tenements into the ECR Minerals asset portfolio, and all the indications are that Adam and the team could unlock significant additional value from these three new license areas.”

“I look forward to deploying our team for a reconnaissance survey in the Lolworth Range region this year, and reporting progress back to our shareholders.”

SUMMARY:

  • LUX EXPLORATION HAS BEEN GRANTED THREE EXPLORATION LICENSES COVERING A TOTAL OF 964 KM2
  • HISTORIC STREAM SEDIMENT SAMPLING INDICATES THAT THE LOLWORTH RANGE IS PROSPECTIVE FOR GOLD, TUNGSTEN AND TIN.

Exploration licenses for tenements EPM27901, EPM27902 and EPM27903 were applied for in May 2021, and we are pleased to report that these were granted to LUX on 1 February 2022. The tenements will expire in 5 years (on 31 January 2027) and, while they will be available for renewal after the initial 5-year term, the area available for renewal will be reduced by 50%, which is a standard term of exploration licences to encourage companies to focus their exploration activities. LUX has a commitment expenditure of AUD$650,000 for the first three years across the three licence areas, which is expected to be funded from ECR’s existing cash resources.

The exploration licences are located approximately 120km west of the historic Charters Towers Gold Mine in North Queensland, Australia and cover an area of 964 km2.

PROSPECTIVITY OF THE AREA

The directors of ECR believe the Lolworth Range is under explored. The area has been closely monitored by ECR’s Head Geologist Adam Jones for at least eight years.

Historical documentation of exploration undertaken within the area, which has not been verified by ECR, reveals that a (pan concentrate) stream sediment campaign was undertaken in 1987-1988 within the granted tenements under the old tenement permit number AP4855M. This work revealed seven gold anomalous drainage sites within the mountain range, including visible gold in pan concentrates. Research has found these anomalies have not been followed up as they were interpreted as sourced from possible terrace alluvial deposits upon the sides of the drainage sites. It is the Directors current belief that even if this was the case, the terrace deposits must still have their source within the Lolworth Range. Tin and tungsten anomalies were also recorded in streams within license area EPM27901. The metamorphic rocks of the range are still not well understood, however rhyolitic rock chips from historic exploration reports within the range were noted to be elevated in gold. These factors have led the Directors to conclude that the Lolworth licence areas have the potential to develop into a valuable asset for ECR Minerals plc. An initial reconnaissance survey of the area is planned for this coming year, and we look forward to updating on progress in due course..

~ Danglay Gold project, Philippines

~ Upcoming milestones for shareholders to watch out for

ECR Minerals #ECR Geologist Adam Jones sees huge potential at Creswick as aggressive drill program advances

ECR Minerals PLC’s #ECR geologist Adam Jones speaks to Proactive soon after the explorer announced drilling at its Creswick project in the Victoria Goldfields, Australia has identified more gold mineralisation along the strike zone in a southerly direction from the first drill hole.

To date, seven holes have been completed, with four holes fully assayed and all hitting multiple and significant zones of quartz and all intercepting gold, with the best results so far from CSD003 where there were no historic workings.

ECR Minerals #ECR – DoR & EA Approve LUX Exploration Work Programmes at North Queensland

DEPARTMENT OF RESOURCES & ENVIRONMENTAL AUTHORITY APPROVE LUX EXPLORATION WORK PROGRAMMES FOR THREE TERRITORIES WEST OF CHARTERS TOWERS IN THE LOLWORTH DISTRICT OF NORTH QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focused on Australia, is pleased to announce that the Department of Resources (DoR) and Environmental Authority have approved work programmes for three Exploration Permits (“EPM”) at its Lolworth District licence territories in North Queensland, Australia.

The EPM licenses have yet to be approved but now that the work programmes have been approved, the EPM’s will be advertised, following which there will be a 4-month consultation period. The Directors believe the licences should be granted in approximately 6 months time, and further announcements will be made at that time. Once approved, all three are valid for an initial period of 5 years to enable the Group to complete the planned exploration program, with a right to apply for permit extensions for up to a total of 15 years. The licenses will be held in the name of LUX Exploration Pty Ltd (“LUX”) which is a 100%-owned Australian subsidiary of ECR Minerals.

Craig Brown, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“I am pleased to report that following our application for three strategic licenses in the Lolworth district announced on 27 May 2021, we have received work programme approval back in record time to complete the EPM application process.

Historical data* from the area shows that regional deposits, including Charters Towers have produced over 24m Oz in total gold production over the years, so naturally our team are very keen to get on the ground and start work.

Our strong cash position has enabled us to maintain aggressive drilling programmes, operating two diamond drill rigs at the Bailieston and Creswick projects in Victoria. While our team at Bendigo continue to assess the core and drill data, under the leadership of Geologist Adam Jones, we now have the capacity to aggressively pursue and develop this new opportunity.”

I am confident that our ongoing drilling operations across multiple high-profile gold targets will expose ECR to potential new gold discoveries, and I look forward to updating shareholders again in the near term.”

THE LOLWORTH RANGE AREA

Exploration Permits (EPM 27901, 27902 and 27903) represent 300 sub-blocks covering a total 900 km2 of highly prospective ground located within the Lolworth Range, 200km WSW of Townsville and 30km north from Pentlands, North Queensland Australia.

EXPLORATION POTENTIAL

The application area contains metamorphic rocks of the Charters Towers Province, that host historical large gold producing centres such as Charters Tower (6.6M Oz Au) *** and Ravenswood (3.5M Oz Au)****; although these numbers have not been independently validated by ECR and so are provided for guidance purposes only. The structural and basement geology is poorly understood in the area, which suggests it is possible to find new deposits.

The area also contains reported rhyolitic volcanics which play host to intrusion-related breccia gold deposits in the region such as Mount Leyshon (>2.5M oz) and Mount Wright (>1M oz). **

Desktop study of historic exploration data from the late 1980’s revealed anomalous gold stream sediment sample results within the applied areas.

The application area is encompassed on the southern boundary by rich alluvial gold deposits of the Cape River and Gorge Creek area, which drain the southern Lolworth Range.

The east boundary of EPM27902 and EPM27903 is bordered by current exploration permits exploring the Lolworth dyke swarm; a north-west trending system of rhyolitic dykes and small breccia pipes containing gold, copper and molybdenum.

Historic sample data also highlighted tin-tungsten mineralisation in the western areas of EPM27902 (see Figure 1). Reports show no detailed follow-up work has been undertaken.

(Internally produced using data from sources set out at the end of this announcement)

EXPLORATION OUTLINE

Research suggests that  little mineral exploration work has been done within the Lolworth Range. While historical ore-deposit reports and metal prices have provided some context and background to the opportunity, the ECR board believe that the most relevant exploration work undertaken within the application area was under AP4855M (by A.R.I Limited) during the 1987-88 period. The work this company undertook is one of the main reasons for the current application area. A.R.I Limited undertook a major stream sediment program within the drainage of the Lolworth Range via helicopter access. This work highlighted seven gold anomalous areas worth following up. Historical rock chip samples also demonstrate the prospectivity of the region with elevated gold in association with rhyolites and breccias. Eleven watersheds showed visible gold in pan concentrates.

Initial exploration is likely to include confirmation of existing stream sampling anomalies to potential watersheds, followed up by soil and rock chip sampling of ridgelines that are above these anomalous watersheds. The outcome of this work will delineate worthy drill targets.

Figure 2: Planned focus of exploration activities for EPM27901, 27902 and 27903.

https://www.ecrminerals.com/images/figure2_210706.jpg

Once the EPM licence applications have been approved, LUX Exploration Pty Ltd. will have initially 5 years to complete the planned exploration program, with right to apply for permit extensions for up to a total of 15 years. LUX Exploration will need to relinquish 50% of the initial application area after 5 years.

The work programmes and forecast expenditure for licenses EPM27901, 27902 and 27903 are expected to total £1.8m over 5 years (Figure 3). NB: These forecasts and projections represent the board’s assumptions and expectations in light of currently available information, and are based on industry trends, costs and other factors that are subject to change.

LONDON: 29 JUNE 2021 – ECR Minerals plc, the gold exploration and development company, is pleased to announce unaudited half-yearly financial results for the six months ending 31 March 2021 for the Company as consolidated with its subsidiaries (the “Group”), along with a review of significant developments during the period and subsequently.

HIGHLIGHTS 

  • Victoria, Australia continues to enjoy a gold exploration boom, with continued third-party interest in ECR’s Creswick project in Victoria. Discussions are ongoing in respect to a potential commercial transaction in relation to our Creswick project.
  • Late in 2020, the Company took delivery of its new Cortech CSD1300G diamond drill rig and at the same time established a new operational base at Bendigo in the Central Victoria Goldfields.
  • The Company announced three new strategic licence applications, adding new exploration opportunities in North Queensland, Australia. Three applications for Exploration Permits – Minerals (“EPM”) licences have been submitted by LUX Exploration Pty Ltd, ECR’s 100% owned subsidiary.
  • In January 2021, ECR’s 100% owned Australian subsidiary MGA commenced drilling operations at the Byron Prospect in the HR3 area of the Bailieston Project. The Company’s newly acquired ‘Midas’ drill rig was utilised to undertake the first of numerous planned drilling campaigns, all of which are being coordinated from ECR’s central exploration facility compound at Bendigo.
  • Announced results from exploration activity in Victoria included immediate success at the first drill hole at Creswick, intersecting 1m @ 9.68 g/t and confirming high gold anomalies (up to 3.75 g/t Au) along with spatially associated antimony which is thought to be from the mineral stibnite which forms a close association with gold mineralisation. Furthermore, a total of 720 B-horizon soil samples were taken across the central and eastern part of the Bailieston Historic Reserve #3 (HR3) between February and March 2021.
  • Post-period end, the Company’s cash position was strengthened by a £2,000,000 equity financing by Novum Securities in April 2021 to ramp-up drilling and exploration activities on ECR’s gold exploration projects.
  • During the period, the Company issued an aggregate of 11,800,000 share options from the management and consultant option pool to certain key consultants and staff, and also issued an additional 235,420,387 shares from the exercise of warrants and options, receiving a total of £3,289,520.
  • Group total comprehensive expenses of £468,112 are reported for the six months ended 31 March 2021 (£1,846,202 for the six months ended 31 March 2020) and net assets of £6,442,465 at 31 March 2021 (£2,206,211 at 31 March 2020).
  • A Group Operating Loss is reported for the six months ended 31 March 2021 of £403,079, compared with £369,102 for the six months ended 31 March 2020.
  • Adam Jones appointed as a Non-Executive Director.
  • Despite the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy, ECR is in a robust financial position and continues to provide shareholders with exposure to an exciting range of gold projects.

FINANCIAL RESULTS

For the six months ended 31 March 2021 the unaudited financial statements of the Group record a total comprehensive expense of £468,112.

The Group’s total assets were £6,522,307 at 31 March 2021, compared with £2,275,479 at 31 March 2020. The increase in total assets has occurred largely due to the increase in purchase of property, plant and equipment and exercise of warrants during the period.

The Group held £3,928,905 of cash and cash equivalents at 31 March 2021, compared with £166,852 at 31 March 2020.  Post the period end, the Group’s cash position benefited from a £2,000,000 equity financing completed by the Company in April 2021.  Cash at 23 June 2021 is £5,242,081.

REVIEW OF PRINCIPAL DEVELOPMENTS DURING THE PERIOD AND SUBSEQUENTLY

The six months to 31 March 2021 and the subsequent period since have been marked by a series of exciting developments for ECR, all of which are related to the Group’s primary strategic activity, of exploration and development in Australia through ECR’s wholly owned Australian subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”).

Currently, the Company is focused on an aggressive drilling programme at Bailieston and Creswick properties in Victoria, with two diamond drill rigs working every day to deliver large quantities of drill core for technical review, processing and assay testing. The ongoing pace and sheer volume of core and data recovered, along with the EPM applications in N Queensland is expected to expose ECR to potential new gold discoveries.

Application for 300 Sub-Blocks West of Charters Towers in the Lolworth District of North Queensland, Australia.

In May 2021, ECR Minerals announced three new strategic licence applications with a view to adding new exploration opportunities in Queensland, Australia. These were submitted by LUX Exploration Pty Ltd which is a 100%-owned Australian subsidiary of ECR Minerals.

The three Exploration Permits – Minerals (EPM) in application (27901, 27902 and 27903) represent 300 sub-blocks covering a total 900 km2 of highly prospective ground located within the Lolworth Range, 200km WSW of Townsville and 30km north from Pentlands, North Queensland Australia.

The application area contains metamorphic rocks of the Charters Towers Province, that host historical large gold producing centres such as Charters Tower (6.6M Oz Au) and Ravenswood (>1M Oz Au). The structural and basement geology is poorly understood in the area, suggesting numerous opportunities to find new deposits. The area also contains reported rhyolitic volcanism, which play host to intrusion-related breccia gold deposits in the region such as Mount Leyshon (>2.5M oz) and Mount Wright (>1M oz).

The application area is encompassed on the southern boundary by rich alluvial gold deposits of the Cape River and Gorge Creek area, which drain the southern Lolworth Range.

The east boundary of EPM27902 and EPM27903 is bordered by current exploration permits across the Lolworth dyke swarm; a north-west trending system of rhyolitic dykes and small breccia pipes containing gold, copper and molybdenum.

Historic samples also highlighted tin-tungsten mineralisation in the western areas of EPM27902. Reports show no detailed follow-up work has been undertaken.

ECR considers EPM27901, 27902 and 27903 offer significant potential for precious and base metal discoveries in an area of Australia where multiple large-scale discoveries have already been made.

Soil Sampling – HR3 Bailieston Project

In May 2021, MGA carried out soil sampling generated within the Historic Reserve #3, (HR3) Bailieston in Victoria, Australia. The results of the study were announced on 15 June 2021, and revealed high gold anomalies (up to 3.75 g/t Au) along with spatially associated antimony, which is thought to be from the mineral stibnite, which forms a close association with gold mineralisation. A total of 720 B-horizon soil samples were taken across the central and eastern part of the Bailieston Historic Reserve # 3 (HR3) between February and March 2021.

These findings mean we have now submitted a request for consent to undertake additional exploration drilling at the location, which is over and above initial planned drill holes in the area. The collected samples were tested by portable X-ray fluorescence (“pXRF”) for anomalous pathfinder elements for gold and a selected sub-set of 229 samples have been sent for trace element analysis (TL) for Au, Ag, As, Sb, Zn, Cu and Pb. Results of this work show a strong spatial relationship between Au (gold), Sb (antimony) and to a lesser extent As (arsenic). Plotting of spatial Au-Sb elemental maps reveals trends that may correspond to the weathering of high-grade gold shoots under shallow cover.

Field mapping shows sub-cropping quartz with little to no historical workings associated with these anomalies. Plans have been submitted for approval to drill along strike to test these quartz reefs at depth.

Soils grids were designed over known and possible strike extensions of gold-bearing quartz reefs. A 10m x 10m spaced grid was chosen as it is known that narrow high-grade gold reefs will erode over a small spatial area into the adjacent soil. Soils have been taken from the B-horizon, often at the gravel-clay interface at a depth around 10cm. This is where the gravels have not transported too far from their source rocks. Soils located within gullies and adjacent mullock dumps were removed due to contamination. All soils were sieved on site to < 2mm and bagged, producing a sample around 300g in weight. A total of 720 samples have been taken to date (June 2021).

All soils were systematically analysed in-house using ECR’s owned Olympus pXRF. Analysis is undertaken using three sequential beams with a 15 second count attributing to each beam. Results are evaluated for traditional pathfinder elements such as As, Ag, Pb, Zn, Cu and Sb.

Soil with moderate arsenic content (generally > 40 ppm) and soils spatially close to extensions to known reef lines were selected for further trace elemental analysis for Au, Ag, As, Pb, Zn, Cu and Sb. A total of 229 sub-samples have been selected and sent to ALS laboratories, Adelaide, South Australia. Method Au-TL44/ME-ICP44 was chosen for analysis.

A detection limit in ppm is sufficient given the proximity to possible gold sources. Any Au-TL44 results greater than 1 ppm was analysed by Au-AROR44, which is used for ‘ore grade’ analysis. A 50g charge from a 95% passing 75µm pulverise was chosen due to the likely presence of coarse gold.

Thirteen samples returned gold values above 0.1 g/t Au. Silver, Copper, Lead and Zinc results are low within the soils.

Arsenic is traditionally used as a pathfinder element for gold mineralisation and occurs at moderate levels within soils at HR3 and is fairly distributed, masking blind gold deposits.

Antimony (Sb) results are variable with high results correlating spatially with high gold assays.

Rock chips taken during 2018 along strike of the main soil anomaly showed a visible speck of coarse gold. Assays for these rock chips were analysed using a small charge fire assay resulting in variable results (up to 0.32 g/t Au) reflecting how coarse gold can be missed using traditional assay methods. Furthermore, non-executive director (Adam Jones) in February 2019 has found coarse gold by using a metal detector within the shallow soils in the vicinity of the reported soil anomalies.

Early Successful RC Diamond Drilling at Creswick Project

MGA has made great progress to date with the completion of the four diamond holes at Creswick and 909.2m of diamond drilling has been undertaken efficiently at the Creswick Project.  So far, the Company has received assay results from hole CSD001, with gold intersected in the first drill hole.

The first hole, CSD001 has been completed to 295m. This hole is an orientation hole to establish the position of the Dimocks Main Shale (DMS) and associated structures. As previously reported (21 June 2019) data from the RC drilling conducted in 2019 showed a lack of geological continuity indicating faulting and folding of the DMS. CSD001 intersected quartz zones within the DMS in addition to multiple reefs above and below it. Drilling of CSD001 has demonstrated that much of the 2019 RC drilling was done into the minor reefs above the DMS.

CSD001 revealed three parallel reef systems above the DMS that have been folded by small and large parasitic folds. The DMS was reached at 72m down the hole and continued to 93m and intersected two 2m quartz zones at the upper contact and at 86m with minor veining throughout the shale. The hole continued to 295m to test the folding and faulting beneath the DMS and encountered an additional 8 reef zones that mostly related to east-dipping faults and minor shales. 76 of the 108 samples sent for laboratory testing from CSD001 have been reported from the lab with the best result 1 m @ 9.68 g/t from an east-dipping fault beneath the DMS. Results from the final 32 samples are awaiting laboratory analysis.

CSD002 was collared 10 m to the west of CSD001 and drilled steeper to target where projected parasitic folding and the mineralised east-dipping fault intersect the DMS. The previously reported result from 2019 from CSR005 of 1m @ 81.0 g/t came from quartz in the parasitic folds. Drilling of CSD001 intersected an 8m quartz zone where the DMS and these structures intersect plus minor veining throughout the shale. The core from CSD002 has been logged, sampled and sent to the laboratory for analysis.

Work to better understand the nugget effect at Creswick is ongoing. As described in the release dated 5 November 2019 grade variability due to the nugget effect was demonstrated at Creswick with some of the initial samples under-reported and others over-reported.

Outlook, Future Prospects and COVID 19

The Board of ECR Minerals plc is very positive in regard to the outlook for the Company and for sustained demand for Gold over the longer term. We remain enthused over the potential and prospectively of the Company’s projects in Victoria, Australia.

As a consequence of COVID 19, governments around the world have imposed restrictions on

international travel, and in particular extensive restrictions have been imposed on domestic travel within Australia. These restrictions have meant that until May 2021, the board have been unable to visit the assets. However, the team on the ground in Victoria have continued the work at site without interruption, and as a result there has been no significant negative impact on the Company from the coronavirus.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Additional Strategic License Applications in Australia

APPLICATION FOR 300 SUB-BLOCKS WEST OF CHARTERS TOWERS IN THE LOLWORTH DISTRICT OF NORTH QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focussed on Australia, is pleased to announce strategic licence applications with a view to adding new exploration opportunities in Queensland, Australia.

Three Exploration Permits in Application (“EPM”) licences have been submitted in North Queensland, Australia with all three EPM licences are held under LUX Exploration Pty Ltd “LUX” which is a 100%-owned Australian subsidiary of ECR Minerals.

Craig Brown, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“The strong cash position enjoyed by ECR Minerals has not only enabled us to launch aggressive drilling programmes across our existing properties, but has also facilitated full utilisation of in-house and advisory resources to identify, investigate and acquire new opportunities to expand our Australian exploration portfolio.  Today’s announcement manifestly demonstrates that capability. 

We are currently operating two diamond drill rigs at the Bailieston and Creswick projects in Victoria, Australia, both of which are delivering considerable amounts of drill core for technical review, processing and assay testing.   

We believe the ongoing drilling operations and the upcoming implementation of drilling across multiple high-profile gold targets will expose ECR to potential new gold discoveries. 

We also look forward to providing further information from the new Queensland Australia licence applications, which we believe offer significant potential for precious and base metal discoveries in an area of Australia where multiple large-scale discoveries have already been made.

Exploration work across Australia continues apace and we expect to provide further operational updates in the near term

THE APPLICATION AREA

  • Three Exploration Permits in application (EPM 27901, 27902 and 27903); representing 300 sub-blocks covering a total 900 km2of highly prospective ground located within the Lolworth Range, 200km WSW of Townsville and 30km north from Pentlands, North Queensland Australia. 

EXPLORATION POTENTIAL

  • The application area contains metamorphic rocks of the Charters Towers Province, that host historical large gold producing centres such as Charters Tower (6.6M Oz Au) and Ravenswood (>1M Oz Au). The structural and basement geology is poorly understood in the area suggesting finding new deposits are possible.
  • The area also contains reported rhyolitic volcanics which play host to intrusion-related breccia gold deposits in the region such as Mount Leyshon (>2.5M oz) and Mount Wright (>1M oz). (see Figure 1 below).
  • Desktop study of historic exploration data from the late 1980’s revealed highly anomalous gold stream sediment sample results within the applied areas. 
  • The application area is encompassed on the southern boundary by rich alluvial gold deposits of the Cape River and Gorge Creek area, which drain the southern Lolworth Range.
  • The east boundary of EPM27902 and EPM27903 is bordered by current exploration permits exploring the Lolworth dyke swarm; a north-west trending system of rhyolitic dykes and small breccia pipes containing gold, copper and molybdenum.
  • Historic samples also highlighted tin-tungsten mineralisation in the western areas of EPM27902 (see Figure 2). Reports show no detailed follow-up work has been undertaken.

EXPLORATION OUTLINE

  • Research reveals little mineral exploration work has been done within the Lolworth Range. Access, company specific targeted ore-deposit styles and price of metals reflect the efforts of past exploration. The most detailed exploration work undertaken within the application area would have been under AP4855M (A.R.I Limited) during the 1987-88 period. The work this company undertook is one of the main reasons for the current application area. A.R.I undertook a major stream sediment program within the drainage of the Lolworth Range via helicopter access. This work highlighted seven gold anomalous areas worth following up. Rock chips also demonstrated the perspectivity of the region with elevated gold in association with rhyolites and breccias. Eleven watersheds showed visible gold in pan concentrates. Highlights from this historic exploration work are shown on (Figure 2).

Figure 2: Plan of EPM application area showing historic stream sediment sampling results.

  • Initial exploration likely to include confirmation of existing stream sampling anomalies to potential watersheds, followed up by soil and rock chip sampling of ridgelines that are above these anomalous watersheds. The outcome of this work will delineate worthy drill targets.
  • Once licence applications have been approved, LUX Exploration Pty Ltd. will have initially 5 years to complete the planned exploration program, with right to apply for permit extensions for up to a total of 15 years. LUX Exploration will need to extinguish 50% of the initial application area after 5 years.
