Zeus North America Mining Corp. Provides Corporate Update and Highlights its Flagship Cuddy Mountain Property

Thursday, 23 May 2024 08:30 AM

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 23, 2024 / Zeus North America Mining Corp. (formerly Umdoni Exploration Inc.) (CSE:ZEUS)(OTCQB:ZUUZF)(FRANKFURT:O92) (the "Company" or "Zeus") is pleased to highlight its 2024 Exploration plans and highlights its flagship Cuddy Mountain Property, immediately adjacent to Hercules Silver Corp.'s Hercules Project ("Hercules")(BIG), which reported a copper porphyry discovery in Idaho. The Leviathan Porphyry Copper discovery was highlighted by intersecting 185metres ("m") of 0.84 percent ("%") Copper ("Cu"), 111 parts per million ("ppm") molybdenum ("Mo") and 2.6 grams per tonne silver ("g/t Ag"), including 45m of 1.95 % Cu (see Hercules Silver's news release dated October 10, 2023).

Zeus North America Mining Corp. prepares for a spring and summer exploration program at its flagship Cuddy Mountain Property. Specifically:

  • The Cuddy Mountain Property is adjacent to Hercules Silver Corp.'s Leviathan Porphyry Copper Discovery;
  • Hercules ring-staked the Zeus Property prior to announcing their discovery, lending to the merits of the Cuddy Mountain Property (Figure 1);
  • Zeus' Cuddy Mountain Property has numerous similarities to the Hercules Property:
    • Both properties have Olds Ferry terrane rocks including the Hercules Rhyolite and Seven Devils Volcanics;
    • Both properties have a number of historical silver occurrences and/or small-scale mines hosted in rhyolite;
    • Both properties are located along the Bayhorse Thrust Fault, a major structural corridor, which thrust the rhyolite (hosts the silver mineralization) overtop of volcanics (hosts the Leviathan Porphyry Copper mineralization; Figure 1);
    • Both properties are within an erosional window through the younger Columbia River basalts that cover the vast majority of the district (Figure 1);
  • The Hercules Discovery was testing a large-scale chargeability anomaly from a 3D-DCIP Induced Polarization ("IP") and Resistivity Survey. Zeus has contracted Dias Geophysical Ltd. to conduct a property wide 3D-DCIP IP and Resistivity Survey during spring/summer 2024;
  • The area has been subject to a ‘staking rush' whereby numerous companies and individuals have staked thousands of mining claims both to the Northeast and South of the Hercules discovery. This is highlighted by Barrick Gold and Rio Tinto's presence in the area and by Hercules' ring-staking of the Zeus Cuddy Mountain Property (see Figures 1 and 2);
  • Zeus plans to conduct soil sampling, mapping, prospecting and rock grab sampling and high-resolution ground magnetics at the Cuddy Mountain Property during summer 2024. The integrated data set will be used to identify specific high-priority drill targets.

Mr. Dean Besserer, President and CEO stated, "This is one of the largest staking rushes I've seen in my career. Many still don't recognize the magnitude of this discovery as it has unveiled a new and previously unknown Porphyry Copper belt. The fact that we have the Property directly adjacent such a great discovery and along the same major structure to is exciting and we are rapidly building our team to be the next in line to make a discovery in the district".

Selway and Great Western properties

Zeus initially plans to conduct reconnaissance prospecting and rock grab sampling to further evaluate the potential mineralization within the properties for silver, copper, gold, lead and zinc. Further field programs thereon will be designed once results are compiled and interpreted.

Investors are cautioned that results from adjacent properties are not indicative of the presence of mineralization or mineral deposits on Zeus' properties.
