Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - June 27, 2024) - North Peak Resources Ltd. (TSXV: NPR) (the "Company" or "North Peak") announces that a drill has been mobilized to Prospect Mountain North area within the Prospect Mountain Property (the "Property") in Eureka, Nevada and drilling will commence this week.

In preparation for the drill program, the Company completed a further rock chip sampling campaign in April 2024 that focused on the infrastructure of the historical mines that exist in the area.

Highlights of that rock chip sampling campaign include:

  • Industry Tunnel, where the drilling will begin, recorded a chip sample of 20.5 g/t (0.66 oz/t) Au.

  • Dead Broke Mine - yielded high silver values up to 911 g/t (29.2 oz/t) Ag, with up to 4.9 g/t (0.16 oz/t) Au.

  • Dead Broke grab dump samples ranged up to 7 g/t (0.22 oz/t) Au and 265 g/t (8.5 oz/t) Ag.

  • Duke Mine - the area around which had high silver values up to 655 g/t (21 oz/t) Ag, with up to 4.4 g/t (0.14 oz/t) Au.

  • Madrid Mine - a small working, but had up to 2.5 g/t (0.08 oz/t) Au, and 158 g/t (5.1 oz/t) Ag.

"Permits arrived in time to take advantage of the daylight in June and July and the drill should be turning by this weekend," Brian Hinchcliffe, Chairman & CEO commented. "There are a number of exciting holes targeting the historic high-grade mines in Prospect Mountain North and will be outlined in more detail in an upcoming press release."

Samples were primarily of gossan (oxidized sulfide ore) chipped from the walls of old stopes accessed by the historic tunnels (see Figure 1 and Table 1 below). While grab samples from dumps are not indicative of in situ grades and are often the "poor quality" ore left behind by the historical miners, they give a useful guide to the composition and grade of the near surface mineralization present on the Property.

The Company is using this data to complement and confirm the extensive historical rock grab database gathered in the 1990's by Homestake over the Property that comprises a total of 614 samples. The combined databases will be used in conjunction with the previously reported sampling data contained within the press releases of 18 October 2023 and 31 January 2024, and geophysics, to help continue to determine near surface drill targets on the Property.

Review by Qualified Person, Quality Control and Reports

Mr. Mike Sutton, P.Geo., a director of the Company, is the Qualified Person, as defined under National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, who reviewed and approved scientific and technical disclosure in this press release. The Qualified Person has not reviewed the mineral tenure, nor independently verified the legal status and ownership of the Property or any underlying property agreements.

All samples referenced herein were prepped by ALS Elko, 1345 Water St, Elko, Nevada, USA. Gold was assayed at ALS Reno, 4977 Energy Way, Reno, Nevada, USA. All base metals and silver were assayed by ALS Vancouver, 2103 Dollarton Hwy, North Vancouver, BC, Canada. Gold was assayed by 30g fire assay analysis with AAS or gravimetric finish (Au-AA23/5 or Au-GRA21). Base metals and silver were analyzed using four-acid digestion ICP-MS (ME-MS61), with overlimit assays using Aqua Regia and four-acid digestion with ICP-MS analysis (*-OG62). All ALS Geochemistry sites operate under a single Global Geochemistry Quality Manual that complies with ISO/IEC 17025:2017, coupled within a global LIMS platform. There is no relationship, fiduciary or otherwise, between ALS and the Company.

All samples were of hand specimen size or larger, and were sealed in North Peak's onsite facility and shipped directly to the lab; the Company can guarantee the chain of custody. The Company's QA/QC program includes the regular insertion of blanks and standards into the sample shipments, as well as instructions for duplication. Standards and blanks are inserted every 20 samples.

About Prospect Mountain

The Property lies in the Battle Mountain Eureka trend, in an area known as the Southern Eureka Gold Belt, where three styles of mineralization have been identified, gold, silver Carlin style mineralization, Carbonate Replacement gold, silver, lead, zinc mineralization (CRD) and carbonate hosted Porphyry Related Skarn lead, zinc and gold mineralization associated with cretaceous intrusions. At the Property, the CRD mineralization is heavily oxidized to depths of at least 610m (2000ft) below the top of the ridge line.

A Plan of Operations is in place which covers part of the Property (totalling 81 acres) and entitles an operator to pursue surface exploration, underground mining of up to 365,000 tons per annum and certain infrastructural works. It includes a permit to extract water from a well and to build water containment facilities.
