VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 13, 2023 / Marvel Discovery Corp. (TSX-V:MARV)(Frankfurt:O4T)(OTCQB:MARVF); ("Marvel" or the "Company")is pleased to announce it has initiated its summer 2023 surface exploration program at the Gander East Property. The focus of the program is to complete a till sampling program over a high priority target associated with north-northeast-trending structures. The priority target is one of several targets that were identified in 2022 by high resolution, helicopter-borne magnetic surveys completed by Marvel (see March 2, 2022, and June 14, 2022, releases for further details). The project is being completed as a follow up to preliminary prospecting and ground truthing which was conducted by the company in late 2022 (see November 9, 2022, release), which identified minimal outcrop and well-developed overburden over the target areas. Further refinement of the targets was completed through review and analysis of geophysical data in preparation for the current program.
Surface work will include till sampling over a Priority 1 target that is associated with north-northeast trending structures. Till sample stations will be collected at 150 meter stations along lines oriented perpendicular to the structures, at 500 meter line spacing. Till sampling will include collection of samples from the B and C horizon. The program was initiated in late August and is anticipated to complete during the month of September. The work is being completed toward exploring the potential for anomalous gold along the structures, and the results from this study will be used to define targets for follow up exploration work. The company interprets the structures at Gander East to be part of the system of faults that bound the GRUB Line, and may represent a splay from the nearby fault system at Queensway where Newfound Gold has made multiple discoveries.
Mr. Karim Rayani, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "New Found Gold Corp. continues to release impressive results from their Queensway Project and continues to show extensive mineralization over a vast area. We initially staked this ground based on the structures we had interpreted within open ground, next to NFG, and continual success within the camp is proof positive of the importance of these deep crustal scale features in the role of movement of mineralizing fluids. The structures we have interpreted from our high-resolution Airborne Magnetic surveys shows several 2nd and 3rd order splays off regional scale fault Zones and our focus is the exploration of these highly prospective structural trends. While the gold market remains stressed, there remains a bullish undertone to all precious metals as there is an increasing lack of confidence in fiat-denominated currencies. We believe that 2024 is shaping up to be a very bullish market for gold."
The Gander East Project consists of 274 claims totaling 6,850 hectares, which have been strategically positioned adjacent to New Found Gold's ("NFG") Queensway Project and along strike from both Exploits Discovery Middle Ridge Project and Sassy Resources Gander North Project (Figure 1). The Queensway Project is undergoing a 400,000 m drill campaign targeting 20 km of prospective strike along the regional scale Appleton and Dog Bay fault zones (Figure 2). A recent news release from NFG dated November 2, 2022, reported intercepting 33.8 g/t Au over 2.35m, 37.4 g/t over 2.10m, and 22.8 g/t Au over 2.20m at their Lotto North Vein situated within a brittle fault zone developed proximal to the Appleton Fault Zone (released November 2, 2022). Parallel structures to those hosting gold at the Queensway and Middle Ridge project areas intersect the Gander East Project, including a segment of the Gander River Ultrabasic Line (GRUB Line) that defines the easternmost bounding structure of the regionally prospective Exploits Subzone (Figure 3). Furthermore, the Gander East Project lies along strike to the south of a new regional gold trend defined by Sassy Resources as a part of their Gander North Project. The structure is integral to the numerous gold occurrences and drill intersections within the Exploits Subzone.
