Vancouver, B.C., January 19, 2022: SNOWLINE GOLD CORP. (CSE: SGD) (US OTC: SNWGF) (the “Company” or “Snowline”) is pleased to announce the strengthening of its technical management team in preparation for a highly active 2022 field season.
Thomas Branson, P.Geo., joins the Company as its Exploration Manager. Mr. Branson brings over 15 years’ industry experience to the Snowline team, having helped to organize and manage more than $55M in exploration expenditures and over 180,000 metres of drilling. His experience spans several continents but is focused in BC and the Yukon. A registered professional geologist with Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia, Mr. Branson holds a B.Sc. in Earth and Ocean Science from the University of British Columbia and an M.Sc. in Exploration Geology from Rhodes University in South Africa.
Steve Rennalls joins the Company as its Operations Manager. Mr. Rennalls’ has worked on the Einarson project in various capacities during four exploration seasons, including most recently with Snowline Gold in 2021 as Camp Manager and logistics manager for the Einarson, Rogue, Ursa, Rainbow and Tosh projects. Mr. Rennalls’ background is in marketing, and his acumen, enthusiasm, and lateral thinking in logistics demonstrated during the 2021 field program reinforce his promise in this essential management role. Mr. Rennalls holds a B.Com. from McMaster University and an M.Sc. Admin. from Concordia University.
In addition, the Company announces that the Board of Directors of the Company has granted a total of 1,190,00 incentive stock options to various employees, consultants, directors, and officers of the Company. The options are exercisable for one share each at $0.55 per share for a period of five years and are subject to the terms of the Company’s Stock Option Plan. Options to certain management, consultants and insiders are subject to vesting provisions of 20% every six months from the date of the grant.
The Company still awaits drill core assay results for its four drill holes drilled on the Rogue Project’s Valley Zone in 2021. All four holes at Valley intersected trace amounts of visible gold in drill core.
In hole V-21-001, the first hole drilled at Valley, sheeted quartz veins were observed across its entire 161 m length. Thirty-one of the many veins observed in this hole contained trace amounts of visible gold, with up to five gold grains observed in a given vein. Visible-gold bearing veins were distributed roughly evenly across the length of the hole.
Valley is a reduced intrusion-related gold target that presents a bulk-tonnage gold exploration model where gold is hosted in widespread arrays of centimetre-scale sheeted quartz veins within and around a felsic intrusion. Valley is a new discovery, and the 2021 drill program represents the first ever drill testing of the target.
