By November 12, 2020 No Comments

November 12, 2020 – Spearmint Resources Inc. (CSE: SPMT) (OTC Pink: SPMTF) (FSE: A2AHL5) (the “Company”) wishes to announce that the Phase I work program completed on the Company’s ‘Goose’ Gold project, directly bordering New Found Gold Corp.’s (NFG.v) Queensway project in Newfoundland (see map), has discovered positive Gold indicators. The Phase I rock and soil sampling program saw the collection of 185 soil samples and 21 rock samples across the ‘Goose’ Gold Property, located in central Newfoundland roughly 1km northwest of New Found Gold Corp’s Keats Zone discovery which returned 92.85g/t Au over 19.0m. The high-resolution soil grid had 50m spaced samples along 100m spaced lines and provided detailed geochemical coverage over the Property, representing the first known work on the asset to date. The results of the survey highlight three distinct gold-in-soil anomalies located in the northeast, southeast and western parts of the Property. The anomaly straddling the western Property boundary is oriented in a North-South direction and has a non-continuous strike length of 600m and 250m. In addition, one select float grab sample of a mafic volcanic unit with stockwork quartz-carbonate veining throughout returned 973ppb gold. Management cautions that past results or discoveries on properties in proximity to Spearmint may not necessarily be indicative to the presence of mineralization on the Company’s properties.

The Company is extremely pleased with the Phase I results considering the ‘Goose’ property’s proximity to the Keats Zone Discovery and is planning an immediate follow up program to expand on the Phase I results. During the planned phase II program, additional soil sampling will be completed over the multiple gold-in-soil anomalies identified expanding the high-resolution grid in these areas to include 25m x 25m spacing. Additionally, hand trenching of the highest magnitude anomalies from the Phase I program will be completed in order to determine the bedrock source of mineralization. The ultimate plan is to advance the Property to a trench and drill ready stage within the coming weeks.

James Nelson, President of Spearmint, stated “We are extremely pleased to have discovered positive gold indicators on our initial work program, in one of the most exciting gold districts in the world.  This initial success gives management a very optimistic view going forward and we plan to formulate the next phase of work immediately on the Goose Property.  Considering this project is approximately 1 kilometer away from the New Found Gold’s Keats discovery hole and is the closest property to that discovery, we are very encouraged by these results as we define the highest priority drill targets on this project.”

Mr. Greg Thomson, P.Geo., a director of Spearmint and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical disclosure contained within this news release.
