Toronto, Ontario – February 13, 2023 – Exploits Discovery Corp. (CSE: NFLD) (OTCQX: NFLDF) (FSE: 634) (“Exploits” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at its Bullseye gold property in Central Newfoundland. The Company has contracted a diamond drill rig to conduct an initial 6,000 metre drill program consisting of approximately 15 drill holes. Exploits is excited to commence drilling at this highly prospective gold target that borders New Found Gold Corp.’s recent Lotto North and Lotto gold discoveries along the Appleton Fault Corridor.
- Initial 6,000 metre drill program at Bullseye consists of approximately 15 drill holes, averaging 400 metres in depth
- Drilling will be a results-driven program focusing on the Appleton structure and related splay structures trending in both northwest and northeast directions
- Recent ground VLF / MAG survey indicates that the Appleton Fault Corridor transects the Bullseye property over a strike length of approximately 1.2 km
Jeff Swinoga, President and CEO, commented, “We are thrilled to kick off our drill program at Bullseye and we congratulate our exploration team for successful execution of our aggressive plan since staking this claim. We believe Bullseye is our most exciting gold target; the recent geophysical survey clearly shows the Appleton Fault extending right through the center of Bullseye. We are fortunate to have several reported gold discoveries neighbouring Bullseye and believe we have a strong exploration framework to make a significant gold discovery. Bullseye has the potential to be a game-changing catalyst for Exploits and the mining industry in Newfoundland.”
On September 27th, 2022, Exploits acquired a 100% interest in 11 mineral claims (2.8 km²) through the province’s map-staking process. The Bullseye claims are located approximately three kilometres north of the Town of Appleton and are easily accessible via existing forestry roads and trail networks.
On December 7th, 2022, the Company announced that it had received the exploration permit, from the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, that pertains to responsibly conducting exploration activities, including drilling, within the new Bullseye claims. The central, ‘h-shaped’ Bullseye property is directly contiguous to New Found Gold Corp. and Labrador Gold Corp. properties where over a dozen drill rigs have been recently operating.
In December 2022, Simcoe Geoscience Ltd. conducted a ground geophysics program at Bullseye. Their VLF data and Magnetic survey results indicated that the Appleton Fault Corridor extends onto the Bullseye property and the subsequent interpretation identified related splay structures adjacent to the Appleton Corridor.
