Apex Resources Intersects Gold Mineralization Including 289.97 g/t Gold Over 0.30 Metres at Ore Hill, BC

 December 17, 2019, Vancouver, BC., Apex Resources Inc. ("Apex") (TSXV: APX) is pleased to announce it has received positive drilling results from the two 2019 diamond drill holes at its Ore Hill property in southeastern BC. Gold mineralization was intersected in both drill holes. Of the 284 core sections assayed in the two drill holes results ranged from less than detection up to 289.97 g/t gold over 0.30 m.

Gold assays and intersection widths for the two NQ size diamond drill holes are summarized below. There is presently insufficient information to determine how intersection widths relate to true widths.

  235.1 237.2 2.1 1.54
Including 235.1 235.4 0.3 8.24


The two holes were drilled to test a 1,500 metre long gold-in-soil anomaly located along a north northeast trending structural zone (see News Release of Nov 14, 2018). Hole OH19-1 was collared at UTM coordinates 489407E 5441150N and drilled to a depth of 183 metres at a dip of -60o and a bearing of 160o. Hole OH19-2 was collared 41 metres southwest of OH19-1 and drilled to a depth of 245.9 metres at a dip of -45o and a bearing of 160o. The two holes intersected multiple zones of gold mineralization associated with a sheeted quartz vein system containing native gold and sporadic silver-lead-zinc values.

Hole OH19-2 was collared at the approximate location of a historic hole OH90-1 (see Aug 19, 2019 news release) and drilled parallel (160 azimuth) to the former hole at a dip of -45o. The historic hole was drilled at a dip of -60o. Reported gold grades from the two holes are similar. Initial interpretation of results from these two holes indicates a possible vein system dipping at 55o to the northwest. Additional drilling will be required to confirm this. The 1990 drill hole results cannot be verified by the company and will be used only to assist in future exploration targeting. Significant assays for hole OH90-1 are given below:

  257.6 260.3 2.70 4.39

(Assays are taken from 1990 Ore Hill drill hole log by D.L. Cooke and Associates.)

The Ore Hill property was first staked in 1901 and had sporadic production from 1906 to 1940 at an average grade of 34.6 g/t gold (BC Minfile 82FSW054 & 082FSW053). The property is situated 42 km south of Nelson, B.C. at the south end of the Sheep Creek Gold Camp. Sheep Creek is a high-grade orogenic gold district similar to the Barkerville Camp (Geoscience BC Report 2017-15).

Arthur Troup President and CEO states "It's very encouraging to obtain significant results from our initial two drill holes on this property. The 2019 drill program indicates potential for multiple zones of elevated gold grades within a broad structural zone associated with a 1,500 metre long gold-in-soil anomaly. We are looking forward to continuing our exploration program at Ore Hill in 2020."

Qualified Person and Quality Control - Quality Assurance

Perry Grunenberg, P.Geo. is a "Qualified Person" for the project and has read and approved the contents of this news release.

On site the core is delivered to the Company's secure facility in Salmo, BC where it is logged, split, tagged, sealed and shipped for analysis. The Company's consulting geologist Susan E. Deane P.Geo. logs and supervises the splitting sealing and shipping of the samples for assay. Quality control is monitored by the insertion of certified standard reference materials and blanks at regular intervals into each sample shipment. For future reference half of all drill core is stored at the Company's secure facility in Salmo, BC.

Drill core samples are submitted to MSA Labs geochemical laboratory services in Langley, British Columbia for preparation and analysis. The MSA facility is accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard for analytical methods.

In the laboratory the entire sample is crushed, 1,000 grams is riffle split and 250 grams is pulverized. Analysis for gold is by 30 g fire assay fusion with an atomic absorption (AAS) finish having a lower limit of 0.01 ppm and upper limit of 10 ppm. Samples with gold assays greater than 1 ppm are re-analyzed using a 500 g screen metallic fire assay. All samples are also analyzed by a 48 multi-elemental Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) geochemical package using a 4-acid digestion.

2020 Exploration Program

In 2020, the company plans for continued exploration at Ore Hill. The scale of the exploration program is dependent upon completion of financing. All permits are in place for an expanded drill program which will commence upon completion of a structural geological mapping program to assist with fine tuning the drill target areas. Drilling will step out from these initial 2 holes to test the strike and down-dip extension of the gold mineralization encountered during the 2019 program.

Apex Resources Announces BC Securities Commission Technical Disclosure Review

 

December 13, 2019, Vancouver, BC Apex Resources Inc. ("Apex") (TSXV: APX) has recently been selected for a technical disclosure review by the BC Securities Commission. The review assessed the Company's disclosure practices and overall level of compliance. The review identified two material deficiencies related to 2013 and 2016 filings that lead to the Company being placed on the Commission's Issuers in Default list. Both issues require that the Company must file an independent NI 43-101 compliant technical report.

In its News Release dated April 11, 2013 the Company disclosed an increase in mineral resources on its Kena Project related to a resource update reported by the Company's joint venture partner. Prior to disclosing the resource update Apex should have verified the resource and filed an independent technical report.

In its MD&A filed on May 26, 2016 the Company disclosed an increase in tungsten resources on its Jersey Emerald Project related to a resource update filed by another operator. Prior to disclosing the resource update Apex should have verified the resource and filed an independent technical report.

The updated resource estimates discussed above for the Kena-Daylight and Jersey Emerald projects are presently not supported by compliant NI 43-101 technical reports prepared for Apex Resources Inc. These two resource estimates should not be relied upon until they have been verified and supported by independent NI 43-101 compliant reports. Apex is in conversations with consulting firms to review these previously indicated resource estimates. Compliant updated NI 43-101 Technical Reports are expected to be completed early in the New Year.

Apex Resources Intersects Visible Gold in Initial Drilling at Ore Hill

 October 31, 2019, Vancouver, BC, Apex Resources Inc. ("Apex") (TSXV: APX) is pleased to report that visible gold has been observed in the initial two diamond drill holes completed at its Ore Hill gold project in southeastern British Columbia (see photos below). The presence of visible gold in drill core is considered very favorable, but does not assure potential for high laboratory assay grades.

Historical mining on the Ore Hill property focused on narrow, high grade, northeast trending quartz veins. Recent exploration shows gold mineralization also occurs along a north trending structural zone. The Ore Hill drill program is targeting this important new style of gold mineralization along a 1,500 metre long gold soil anomaly.

Four drill sites were initially selected to test the soil anomaly north of the historic Summit Gold mine. Drilling commenced September 30th but was suspended in mid-October due to un-seasonally heavy snow conditions. The program completed 437.35 metres of drilling in two holes. The core is presently being logged and split at the company's secure core storage facility in Salmo, BC. Assays will be reported when analyses are complete in about 4 weeks.

The two planned but untested drill targets will be explored as soon as weather conditions allow access. The Company has a multi-year permit in place to allow for an expanded drill program.

The 2,000 hectare Ore Hill Property is located in the historic Sheep Creek gold camp just 5 km east of Apex's historic Jersey-Emerald lead, zinc and tungsten mines. The property covers the former Ore Hill, Summit and Bonanza gold mines. See website and previous releases for more information on these projects.

Rock chip sampling completed by Margaux Resources in 2017 and 2018 returned a number of high grade gold assays, including 119 g/t and 105 g/t gold over a 950 m by 150 m area along the trace of the gold soil anomaly (see Margaux release of Oct 29, 2019). The results suggest that this recently identified mineralization may represent an extensive mineralizing system with significant size and strength.

The program is planned and supervised by Apex's consulting geologist, Perry Grunenberg, P.Geo. Perry Grunenberg is a "Qualified Person" for the purpose of NI 43-101.

Apex Resources Commences Exploration at its Ore Hill Gold Project

 

September 4, 2019, Vancouver, BC Apex Resources Inc. ("Apex") (TSXV: APX) is pleased to announce that an exploration program is now underway on its Ore Hill Gold Property in southeastern British Columbia. A 600 metre, Phase 1, diamond drill program is currently being carried out in order to investigate an important new style of gold mineralization along a 1,500 metre long soil anomaly.

The 2,000 hectare Ore Hill Property lies at the southern end of the historic Sheep Creek gold camp and along the eastern margin of the Jersey-Emerald lead, zinc and tungsten property. The property covers the former Ore Hill, Summit and Bonanza mines.

Historical mining on the Ore Hill property focused on narrow high grade, quartz veins. Production was 3,335 tonnes averaging 34.7 g/t gold and 60.7 g/t silver (BC Minfile Reports 82FSW054 & 082FSW053). Recent exploration shows gold mineralization also occurs within a breccia zone, up to 10 metres wide, adjacent to a north trending fault. A large, strong gold soil anomaly traces the fault for over 1,500 metres across the Summit and Ore Hill claims.

Limited drilling tested the breccia area in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Highlights of the drilling include the following intercepts:

  • DDH 90-01                           3.05m @ 8.09 g/t gold
  • DDH 90-01                           6.10m @ 2.91 g/t gold
  • DDH 90-01                           0.33m @ 33.31 g/t gold
  • DDH 88-01                           1.52m @ 4.42 g/t gold
  • DDH 88-02                           0.46m @ 11.04 g/t gold

Rock chip sampling completed in 2017 and 2018 returned a number of high grade gold assays, including 119 g/t and 105 g/t Au over a 950 m by 150 m area along the trace of the breccia zone. The results suggest that this recently identified new style of mineralization may represent an extensive mineralizing system with significant size and strength.

The present Phase 1 drill program will investigate the strike, dip and continuity of the mineralized breccia zone in preparation for Phase 2 drill testing.

Readers are cautioned that the grades and production figures quoted in this release are historical in nature and are based upon a variety of pre-NI 43-101 Standards for Disclosure sources, none of which can be verified at this time. The relationship between true widths and reported core length intervals is unknown at this time.

The Company has contracted Wade Critchlow Enterprises Ltd. of Salmo, BC to complete the planned drill program. The program is planned and supervised by Apex's consulting geologist, Perry Grunenberg, P.Geo. Perry Grunenberg is a "Qualified Person" for the purpose of NI 43-101.

Apex Resources Announces Drill Hole Data Review of its Ore Hill Gold Project

 August 19, 2019, Vancouver, BC - Apex Resources Inc. ("Apex") (TSXV: APX) is pleased to report results of a compilation of historic drill hole data from the Ore Hill Gold Project in southeastern British Columbia. This review suggests that the Ore Hill Property has potential for discovery of an important new style of gold mineralization within a conformable breccia zone that has been traced for 1,500 metres across the property. The study also suggests there may be potential for new reserves in the veins below the historic workings. Highlights of the study include the following historic drill intercepts:
  • DDH 90-01                       3.05m @ 8.09 g/t gold
  • DDH 90-01                       6.10m @ 2.91g/t gold
  • DDH 90-01                       0.33m @ 33.31g/t gold
  • DDH 88-01                       1.52m @ 4.42 g/t gold
  • DDH 88-02                       0.46m @ 11.04 g/t gold
  • DDH 89-04                       0.92m @ 5.59 g/t gold
The 2,000 hectare Ore Hill property encompasses two historic gold mines, the Ore Hill Mine and the adjacent Summit Mine. The properties were initially staked in 1901. Production was sporadic but between 1906 and 1940, a total of 3,335 tonnes of ore were mined at a grade 34.7 g/t gold, 60.7 g/t silver, 2.82% lead and 2.66% zinc (BC Minfile 82FSW054 & 082FSW053).

In 1988 and 1989 Baloil Lassiter Petroleum optioned the Summit Mine and explored the historic workings with 10 short diamond drill holes. Four of the holes; 88-1, 2, 4 & 9 intersected significant gold grades within a conformable, dolomitized, breccia zone that is up to 10 metres wide. The breccia zone trends at an oblique angle of 35o to the historic veins but follows a gold soil and rock chip anomaly that has been traced for 1,500 metres across the property, (see news release of Nov 14, 2018 and Mar 18, 2019). Gold assays for the four holes are tabled below:

Summit Mine Drilling 1988-89
Hole_ID UTM E UTM N Sample Length_m Gold_g/t
88-1 489321 5440952 0.30 7.20
88-1 489321 5440952 1.52 4.42
88-2 489284 5440990 0.46 11.04
88-2 489284 5440990 0.30 8.64
89-4 489327 5440998 0.92 5.59
89-9 489353 5441020 0.30 2.47
89-9 489353 5441020 0.32 2.19

(Assays are taken from 1990 Summit-Ore Hill property report by D.L. Cooke and Associates.)

In 1990 Yellowjack Resources tested the soil anomaly on the Ore Hill property 150 metres north of the Summit Mine workings, with a 298 metre long diamond drill hole (DDH90-1). The hole successfully intersected 5 gold bearing zones across 215 metres of core from 45.7 metres to 260.3 metres. All five intersections occur below the depth of the lowest level of mining in the Summit Mine. Gold assays and intersection widths for hole DDH90-1 are as follows:

Ore Hill Drill Hole 90-1 UTM 489400E 5441150N
Hole_ID From_m To_m Sample Length_m Gold_g/t
OH90-1 45.72 48.77 3.05 0.72
  67.05 70.10 3.05 8.09
  210.3 216.40 6.10 2.91
Including 210.3 212.1 1.90 8.49
and 211.8 212.1 0.30 33.31
  235.6 236.2 0.60 12.74
  257.6 260.3 2.70 4.39

(Assays are taken from 1990 Ore Hill drill hole log by D.L. Cooke and Associates.)

In 1991 Yellowjack Resources drilled 8 holes near the Ore Hill mine workings 400 metres north of the Summit Mine. The holes tested a parallel horizon 100 metres east of the favorable breccia zone and the associated gold soil anomaly. No precious metal values were intersected but three holes intersected high grade lead and zinc mineralization in a conformable massive sulphide body. The Yellowjack drill results are as follows:

Ore Hill 1991 Drill Holes Intersections
Hole_ID UTM E UTM N Sample Length_m Lead % Zinc %
OH91-1 489517 5441270 1.5 5.36 10.03
OH91-2 489518 5441269 0.60 6.38 4.70
OH91-4 489534 5441320 1.0 11.50 11.55

(Assays are taken from 1991 Ore Hill drill hole logs by D.L. Cooke and Associates.)

When gold prices plummeted in 1992 work on the Ore Hill and Summit Properties was suspended. No additional property work was done until the recent mapping and geochemical work commenced in 2017 (see news releases of Nov 14, 2018, Mar 18, 2019, and Mar 25, 2019).

This review indicates that the Ore Hill property has potential for discovery of an important new style of gold mineralization within a conformable breccia zone as well as new reserves in the veins below the historic workings. The historical information also suggests the property has potential for stratiform lead-zinc mineralization similar to the nearby Jersey lead-zinc mine. The Jersey Mine, located 5 km west of Ore Hill, was BC's second largest zinc mine. A program of trenching, diamond drilling, geological mapping, and geochemical sampling is planned for Ore Hill. The property is fully permitted for the planned program.

Readers are cautioned that the grades and production figures quoted in this release are historical in nature and are based upon a variety of pre-NI 43-101 Standards for Disclosure sources, none of which can be verified at this time. The relationship between true widths and reported core length intervals is unknown at this time.
