    Sokoman Minerals: Advancing gold mineralisation projects in mining friendly regions

    Sokoman’s mineralisation projects are focused across Canada’s hottest gold area to further advance new discoveries.

    Sokoman Minerals Corp. is a discovery-oriented mineral exploration company with a portfolio of gold mineralisation projects in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The Company’s focus remains its flagship, 100% owned Moosehead Gold Project where the 100,000 metre Phase 6 Diamond drilling programme (following Phase 1-5 drilling total of 23,219m) continues.

    The geology, structure, and style of the Moosehead mineralisation compares favourably to the Bendigo-Fosterville-type gold deposits in Australia. Drilling to date has discovered five zones of gold mineralisation, most containing visible gold, on the Eastern Trend in the central portion of the property. Gold mineralisation has been defined over a 600m strike length and to 370m down dip.

    At the 100% owned Fleur de Lys Gold Project, the company is targeting Dalradian-type orogenic gold mineralisation similar to the Curraghinalt and Cavanacaw deposits in Northern Ireland. The Phase 1 C-horizon till survey has outlined a district-scale, prospective corridor of approximately 30km strike length. Results include 190 samples with at least 20 gold grains that are considered anomalous. High counts of pristine gold grains suggest a local source (less than 200m) for some of the anomaly clusters.

    The company is actively participating in a strategic 50/50 JV alliance with Benton Resources Inc., through three large-scale joint-venture mineralisation projects. The alliance controls over 150,000 hectares, making it one of the largest landholders in Newfoundland’s newest gold district. The joint mineralisation projects include:

    • The Grey River Project: Located in southern Newfoundland, this mineralisation project spans more than 8,100 hectares. Surface exploration located visible gold in a portion of the mineralised zone, in the vicinity of a historical 225 g/t Au sample site. Drilling has returned multiple intersections in five drill holes, covering 5.0km of strike length, and is open in all directions. Drillhole GR-21-01, the easternmost hole drilled, intersected three distinct gold zones, including a high-grade interval of 10.58 g/t Au over 1.80m, including 50.13 g/t Au over 0.35m. A second phase has been completed and results are expected soon.
    • The Golden Hope Project: This mineralisation project is located in southwestern Newfoundland on 79,400 hectares of property. Survey efforts have been completed to provide an overall structural picture of the property and identify extensions of known gold-bearing structures. Ground reconnaissance has discovered a swarm of lithium-caesium-tantalum bearing pegmatites – the first lithium discovery in Newfoundland. Samples from the dykes give highly anomalous caesium (up to 1.57%), rubidium (226 ppm to 0.61% Rb), and tantalum (5 ppm to 0.042% Ta), typical of highly evolved pegmatite swarms. A third drilling programme has commenced, and the first three holes have intersected spodumene-rich dykes up to 14m in thickness.
    • The 15,625-hectare Kepenkeck Project features high-grade gold and quartz veining targets, in east-central Newfoundland. Assay results from 24 samples, obtained from localised float and outcrops, returned gold grading from >5 ppb to 5,340 ppb.

    The company also retains interests in early-stage gold projects in Newfoundland, including Startrek, Crippleback Lake, and East Alder and has a 100% interest in the Iron Horse (Fe)  project in Labrador, which has Direct Shipping Ore (DSO) potential.
