Vanstar Reports Winter Drilling Results From Nelligan - Gold Mineralization Expanded Along Strike And At Depth, With Multiple Holes Reporting Higher Than Average Grade And Width – Annual Stock Options To Be Granted And Priced End Of Day On July 8, 2022

Jul 6, 2022


Montreal, Quebec - July 6, 2022 – Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSX.V:VSR) (OTCQX:VMNGF) (FSE:1V8)  (“Vanstar”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from the 2022 winter diamond drill program consisting of 4,714 meters in 8 holes on the Nelligan joint venture project (IAMGOLD Corporation (“IAMGOLD”): 75%, Vanstar: 25%) completed by its partner IAMGOLD. The Company reported that nearly all the holes have intercepted multiple wide intercepts of gold mineralization at higher-than-average grades. (Please see the following Link for an interview regarding the results.)

Highlights include: 

  • Hole NE-22-194
    • 7.9 m of 6.71 g/t Au
    • 41.3 m of 1.38 g/t Au
    • 69 m of 2.24 g/t Au, and
    • 35 m of 1.64 g/t Au
  • Hole NE-22-193
    • 16.5 m of 2.58 g/t Au
    • 13.9 m of 4.71 g/t Au
    • 57.6 m of 1.38 g/t Au, and
    • 48 m of 1.08 g/t Au.
  • Hole NE-22-192
    • 28.0 m of 0.96 g/t Au
    • 52.3 m of 1.60 g/t Au, and
    • 25.5 m of 1.35 g/t Au
  • Hole NE-22-198
    • 27.9 m of 2.31 g/t Au and
    • 23.8 m of 3.21 g/t Au

J.C. St-Amour, President and CEO, said “The winter drilling program has been a complete success, confirming that gold resources can be added at depth and along strike. Most encouraging is the fact that the deposit remains open in all directions, especially at depth, where we are seeing some holes return better than average grade and widths, suggesting there is ample room for additional expansion and growth.” 

The Nelligan Gold project (on a 100% basis) hosts Inferred Mineral Resources containing 3.2 million ounces of gold grading 1.02 g/t Au (refer to IAMGOLD news releases dated October 22, 2019 and February 23, 2022).

Nelligan Next Steps

The summer exploration program is underway and will evaluate other priority targets on the exploration property with focused geological mapping programs supported by geochemical and geophysical surveys as merited. Along with field work the geological, geochemical and structural models have been updated with the latest drill results and will support an updated resource estimation for the Nelligan project projected for the end of 2022.

1.  True widths are estimated at 71 to 97% of the core interval.
2.  Drill hole intercepts are calculated with a lower cut of 0.50 g/t Au and may contain lower grade interval of up to 5 metres in length. They are generally reported with a minimum g*m (or Metal factor) of 5.    
3.  Assays intervals are reported uncapped and high grade sub-intervals are highlighted.
* Hole NE-22-196 has been stopped prematurely for technical reasons and was wedged to continue as hole NE-22-196W
