WEST RED LAKE GOLD 2021 EXPLORATION PLANS

Toronto, ON – January 28, 2021 – West Red Lake Gold Mines Inc. (CSE: RLG) (OTCQB: RLGMF) (FSE: HYK) (“West Red Lake Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that exploration diamond drilling is planned to continue throughout 2021 on the West Red Lake Gold Project located in the prolific Red Lake Gold District of Northwestern Ontario, Canada.

 

During the first quarter of 2021, West Red Lake Gold plans to drill along the northern 1 km of the NT Zone as follow-up to successful drill results generated over the southern 1 km portion of the NT Zone during 2019 and 2020. The northern portion of the NT Zone continues to trend north-east before it folds around to the north-west and to the north side of the Rowan Mine. The folding of the NT Zone occurs where it intersects with the east-west trending Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone (“PBS Zone”) which hosts the Rowan, Mount Jamie and Red Summit Mines which are all located on the West Red Lake Project property.

 

During 2021, after drilling the north-eastern 1 km portion of the NT Zone, West Red Lake Gold plans to carry out deeper drilling below positive results previously reported in the southern 1 km portion of the NT Zone.

 

Mr. John Kontak, President of West Red Lake Gold Mines stated, “We are very pleased to begin to explore the second kilometer of the NT Zone for expansion of gold mineralization further along the geological strike to the north-east. After the expansion drilling along strike takes place, the Company also plans to expand the entire 2 km strike length of the NT Zone to greater depth”.

 

West Red Lake Gold also plans to drill approximately 10 shallow holes to target gold mineralization above the first level of the Rowan Mine. Only minimal drilling has been undertaken to date in the area where historic sampling on the first mine level and at surface indicate good potential for a gold-rich surface bulk sample sometime in the future.  (NI 43-101 Rowan Mine Mineral Resource: 4,468,900 tonnes grading 7.57 gpt Au for 1,087,700 inferred oz of Au from the Technical Report and Resource Estimate on the West Red Lake Project filed on February 18, 2016 authored by John C. Archibald, B.Sc., P.Geo. and Peter Bevan, P.Eng., and John Kita, P.Eng.).

 

The Company also announces the grant of 2,900,000 options at an exercise price of $0.12 for a term of 2 years to service providers.

Highlights include:

 

  • High grade Rowan gold deposit in the prolific Red Lake Gold District of Ontario, Canada – exploration potential open at depth
  • West Red Lake Project hosts three former gold mines located 15 km west of the Red Lake mine complex operated by Evolution Mining
  • Evolution Mining is a partner at the Rowan Mine property (RLG owns 64% and is the operator; Evolution Mining owns 36%)
  • Management team track record: growing junior resource companies and attracting high profile acquisition partners

 

NI 43-101 inferred resource estimate of 4,468,900 tonnes at an average grade of 7.57 grams gold per tonne containing 1,087,700 ounces of gold at the Rowan Mine deposit dated February 16 2016 NI 43-101

 

West Red Lake Gold Mines trades on the Canadia Securties Exchange under the symbol RLG, on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol HYK, and on the OTCQB under the symbol RLGMF.

 

West Red Lake Project Highlights

 

  • 3100 hectare property encompassing three former gold mines:
    • Rowan Mine
    • Red Summit Mine
    • Mount Jamie Mine
  • Property has a 12km strike length and includes the intersection of key geological structures – Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone and the NT Zone
  • Major gold deposits in the Red Lake Gold District are associated with regional scale deformation zones
  • Exploration work is focused on drilling high grade gold zones on the Rowan Mine property (RLG owns 64% and is the operator; Evolution Mining owns 36%)
  • Potential to increase the current Rowan Deposit inferred resource (Feb. 2016 NI 43-101)
  • Good exploration potential and positive initial results at the 2km long NT Zone

 

The Company property is situated on the Red Lake Archean Greenstone Belt, which hosts the high-grade gold mines of the Red Lake Gold District.

 

The 3100 hectare West Red Lake Project has 12km of strike length on the regional east-west trending Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone. Three former gold mines – Rowan Mine, Mount Jamie Mine, and Red Summit Mine – are all situated along the deformation zone on the Company property.

 

A second regional gold bearing structure, the NT Zone, trends northeast on to the property and intersects with the Pipestone Bay St Paul Deformation Zone approximately 1km east of the Rowan Mine.

 

Fifteen km to the east of the West Red Lake Project a similar intersection of two regional gold bearing geological structures occurs proximal to the world-class Red Lake Mine and Campbell Mine, providing a favourable geological model. This similar structural intersection illustrates the significant exploration potential for high-grade gold zones on the Company’s West Red Lake Project.

 

Exploration work is focused on drilling high grade gold zones at the West Red Lake Project.

 

Geologically, the West Red Lake Project is situated at the west end of the Red Lake Gold District which is comprised of a series of six metavolcanic/metasedimentary supracrustal assemblages intruded by several bodies of variable size, form, and composition. All of the assemblages have undergone several phases of deformation and metamorphism. The rocks, of Mesoarchean and Neoarchean age, form part of the larger Uchi Subprovince of the Superior Province of the Canadian Shield. At least two major deformation events have affected the rocks of the Red Lake Gold District resulting in the generation of interference fold structures on all scales. Major gold deposits in the Red Lake Gold District are associated with regional scale deformation zones. The most significant deposits occur where two of the regional structures intersect.
