Brascan Gold Negotiates Earn-In Options on Multiple Brazilian Gold Properties, Including the Alegre Gold Project in Northeastern, Brazil

·4 min read

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 17, 2022) - Brascan Gold Inc. (CSE: BRAS) ("Brascan" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its ongoing review of the multiple earn-in options on gold properties in Brazil. As previously announced on December 29, 2021, Brascan completed its due diligence site visit on the Alegre Gold Project (the "Project") in Pará State, northeastern Brazil. The site visit verified multiple recently active or active artisanal gold mines (garimpos) of significant size, evidently recovering gold from the weathered saprolite zone within structurally controlled shear zones. These gold garimpos attest to Project's significant gold potential. Brascan believes the saprolite (weathered zone) gold mineralization is likely to extend into the bedrock below, and that this mineralization will be a focus of the anticipated exploration program. This exploration program is expected to include geophysics (magnetics and electromagnetics), surface sampling and planning with respect to the how to cooperatively work with the garimpos. Brascan hopes to develop strong drill targets from this work, especially given the evidence of garimpo gold production.

Based on the results of the site visit and additional detailed due diligence on the Alegre Gold Project, Brascan intends to formally announce its acceptance of the earn-in option with the 100% claims owners Chapada Brasil Mineração Ltda. ("CBM" or the "Optionor") by the end of January, 2022.

The Project is located on the same gold mineralization trend as Goldmining Inc.'s advanced Cachoeira gold project 15 km to the north and Oz Minerals' CentroGold Project 30 km to the south (considered one of Brazil's largest undeveloped gold projects). CBM also reports that other adjacent neighbors to the Alegre Gold Project include Kinross Brasil Mineração and IAM Gold Corp.

Additional Brazilian gold targets

Brascan is concurrently conducting detailed due diligence studies on two other gold projects in Brazil. One is in Goias State, about a 3 hour drive from Brasilia, where Brascan has identified "blue-sky" potential for gold along a 1.6 km mineralized trend. This project also may be suitable for bulk sampling under a Brazilian trial mining licence while the blue-sky potential is being explored. The other Project is located in the heart of Brazil's traditional mining district in Minas Gerais State. In that area, gold mining has occurred since the times of the Portuguese empire, but exploration work suggests high-grade targets may remain.

Balbir Johal, CEO, stated, "we look forward to closing the Alegre Gold option agreement in short order, which we hope will mobilize our exploration immediately to unlock the Project's full potential."
