VANCOUVER, BC, July 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - Scottie Resources Corp. ("Scottie" or the "Company") (TSXV: SCOT), (OTCQB: SCTSF); (FSE: SR8) is pleased to report that it has commenced its 2022 drill program focused on expanding its high-grade Blueberry Contact Zone. The Blueberry Contact Zone is located 2 km north-northeast of the 100% owned past-producing high-grade Scottie Gold Mine, 35 km north of the town of Stewart, BC, along the Granduc Road.
President and CEO, Brad Rourke commented: "Our 2022 exploration is in full swing with the first drill turning at Blueberry and field crews soil sampling on the Cambria Project. Our planned drill program at Blueberry will test validated targets developed during the 2021 program, which have the potential to double the strike length of the Blueberry Contact Zone. Between testing new targets and following up on the successful intercepts from last season, we expect to deliver another year of consistently strong results that define a large, road accessible, gold system in the Golden Triangle."
About the Blueberry Contact Zone
The Blueberry Zone is located just 2 km northeast of the 100% owned, past-producing Scottie Gold Mine located in British Columbia, Canada's Golden Triangle region. Historic trenching and channel sampling of the Blueberry Vein include results of 103.94 g/t gold over 1.43 metres, and 203.75 g/t gold over 1.90 metres. Despite high-grade surficial samples and easy road access, the Blueberry Vein had only limited reported drilling prior to the Company's exploration work. The target was significantly advanced during Scottie's 2019 drill program when an interval grading 7.44 g/t gold over 34.78 metres was intersected in a new splay off zone of the main Blueberry Vein. The drill results received in 2020 and 2021, coupled with surficial mapping and sampling suggest that this splay is in fact a major N-S mineralized structure, of which the Blueberry Vein was only a secondary structure. This zone is much wider than pursued in previous exploration models and drilling in 2021 expanded its strike length to 720 meters and its depth to 225 meters. The zone is steeply dipping, and there is no current restraint on its potential depth; the mineralization at the adjacent Scottie Gold Mine has a vertical extent greater than 450 m. The Blueberry Zone is located on the Granduc Road, 20 km north of the Ascot Resources' Premier Project, which is in the process of refurbishing their mill in anticipation of production in 2022 (August 10, 2021). Newcrest's Brucejack Mine is located 25 km to the north.
