Winnipeg, Manitoba, September 2nd, 2022 – Beyond Minerals Inc. (the “Company” or “Beyond Minerals”) (CSE:BY) is pleased to announce that it has staked 114 claims covering an area of 2,220 hectares located approximately 190 km north of Red Lake, in the Borland Lake, Favourable Lake, and Gorman River areas of Northwestern Ontario, adjacent to Midex Resources’ Berens Project and located near Frontier Lithium Inc. (TSXV: FL) PAK Lithium Property.
The claims are located within the Favourable Lake greenstone belt, which surrounds the historic Berens River Mine and contains many untested gold, base metal and lithium occurrences.
The area has an exploration history dating back to the late 1920s; however, it has been subject to only spatially limited ground exploration. Most exploration in the area, including surface drilling and underground development and drilling, has been concentrated on the historical Berens River Mine No. 1 vein, the subparallel unmined No. 3 vein, and the immediate surrounding area. Between 1939 and 1948, Berens River Mines processed 560,707 short tons of mill feed at a rate of approximately 204–250 tons per day from the No. 1 vein, producing 157,339 ounces of gold, 5,684,360 ounces of silver, 4,129,766 pounds of lead, and 740,567 pounds of zinc (see the NI 43-101 technical report on the Berens River Project, dated October 15, 2021, prepared for Midex Resources Limited by qualified person Ian Trinder, M.Sc., P.Geo.).
Dr. Craig Gibson, President and CEO of Beyond Minerals, commented, “Northwestern Ontario is a promising area for high-grade gold deposits and battery metals. Its large territory of under-explored greenstone belts has attracted interest from several top-tier gold producers, including Barrick, Evolution Mining, and Kinross, which have further established the region as a leading mining hub.”
The Company is further pleased to announce that it has contracted with Prospectair Geosurveys Inc. to conduct an airborne geophysical survey over the Fabie block of its Easterchester-Fabie property, located approximately 35 kilometres northwest of the City of Rouyn-Noranda, in the province of Quebec. The survey is scheduled to be completed in September 2022. The Company is also evaluating options for advancing a preliminary drill program on the Fabie block, which would be completed in the fourth quarter of this year.
Qualified Person and Third-Party Data
The scientific and technical information in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Craig Gibson, Ph.D., P.Geo., President and CEO of the Company (the “Qualified Person”). Dr. Gibson is a “qualified person” as defined in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).
Certain information in this press release regarding the presence of mineral deposits and the size of such deposits is based on information that has been obtained from publicly available information and industry reports, which constitute historical estimates. Such reports generally state that the information contained therein has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable, but the accuracy or completeness of such information is not guaranteed. While the Company considers historical estimates to be relevant to investors, as they may indicate the presence of mineralization, the Qualified Person has not done sufficient work for the Company to classify the historical estimates as current “mineral resources” or “mineral reserves” (as defined in NI 43-101). The historical estimates contained in this press release were calculated prior to the implementation of NI 43-101 and the Company is not treating the historical estimates as current “mineral resources” or “mineral reserves”. The potential quantities and grades of exploration targets referenced in this press release are conceptual in nature. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in any of the targets being delineated as a mineral resource. The Company has not independently verified and cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the historical estimates and other third-party data contained in this press release and investors should use caution in placing reliance on such information.
