Rockridge Assets Completes 100% Earn-In

Vancouver, BC, Sept. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rockridge Assets Ltd. (TSX-V: ROCK) (OTCQB: RRRLF) (Frankfurt: RR0) (“Rockridge” or the “Firm”) is happy to announce the completion of the earn-in possibility and its 100% possession at its flagship Knife Lake Copper VMS Mission in Saskatchewan (the “Knife Lake Mission” or “Property”).

The Knife Lake Mission, consisting of 82 claims totaling 56,865 hectares (140,516 acres), is an advanced-stage copper, silver, zinc and cobalt exploration property in Saskatchewan host to the Knife Lake Deposit.

The Knife Lake Mission is host to a NI 43-101 useful resource estimate which consists of a pit-constrained indicated useful resource of three.8 million tonnes at 1.02% CuEq and an inferred useful resource of seven.9 million tonnes at 0.67% CuEq utilizing a 0.4% CuEq cut-off. For extra info, please confer with the Information Launch dated August 14th, 2019 or the NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Mineral Useful resource Estimate for the Knife Lake Property, Saskatchewan dated September 27th, 2019, filed on Sedar.

Phrases of Possibility Settlement:

Beneath the phrases of the Settlement, Rockridge has now acquired a 100% curiosity within the Knife Lake Mission by making money funds to Eagle Plains Assets totaling CDN $150,000, issuing 5,550,000 widespread shares of Rockridge, and incurring exploration expenditures of CDN $3,250,000, over a four-year interval.

Summer Diamond Drilling Program:

The main target of the continued 2022 drill program has been on the extremely potential Gilbert Lake goal space in addition to continued infill and enlargement drilling on the Knife Lake deposit. This system is deliberate to consist of roughly 1,000m in six to eight drill holes.

The Gilbert Lake targets had been recognized from the outcomes and interpretation of the earlier geophysical, drill and area applications. Outcomes from these applications present that airborne VTEM surveys can efficiently establish zones of VMS-style mineralization hosted in beneficial stratigraphy on the property.

Knife Lake Goal Areas 2022 Drill Program:

The drilling on the Gilbert Lake South goal space will additional examine strike-length continuity of the mineralized horizon intersected in 2021 drilling, which stays open to the south.

The holes will even consider potential zoning of mineralization, which is usually noticed in VMS programs. Extra drilling at a newly found copper displaying on the Gilbert West Space has additionally been prioritized.

The holes will goal the down-dip extension of a mineralized and intensely altered volcanic package deal which is interpreted to be the Knife Lake stratigraphic horizon. The Gilbert West goal has by no means been drill examined.

The Firm will even be drilling on the Knife Lake deposit space as infill and enlargement drilling to improve the present useful resource estimate. Rockridge has obtained its exploration allow which is nice by means of February 2024.

Knife Lake Geology and History:

The Knife Lake Deposit is interpreted to be a remobilized VMS deposit. The stratabound mineralized zone is roughly 15m thick and comprises copper, silver, zinc, gold and cobalt mineralization which dips 30° to 50° eastward over a identified strike-length inside Rockridge’s declare space of three,700 metres, and a identified common down-dip extension of roughly 300 metres.

Knife Lake Deposit Map:

The deposit is hosted by felsic to intermediate volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks which have been metamorphosed to higher amphibolite facies. The deposit comprises VMS mineralogy which has been considerably modified and partially remobilized in the course of the emplacement of granitic rocks.

The mineralization straddles the boundary between two rock models and happens on each limbs of an interpreted overturned fold.

The Firm accomplished twenty-four holes consisting of three,096 metres of diamond drilling within the 2019 and 2021 winter drilling applications. This represented the primary drilling on the property since 2001.

Each applications have given the Firm’s technical group worthwhile insights into the property geology, alteration, and mineralization that will likely be utilized to future regional exploration on the extremely potential and underexplored land package deal.

Knife Lake VTEM and Seize Pattern Survey:

Highlights from the drill applications embrace beforehand reported gap KF19003 which intersected net-textured to semi-massive sulphide mineralization from 11.2m to 48.8m downhole. This 37.6 metre interval returned 2.03% Cu, 0.19 g/t Au, 9.88 g/t Ag, 0.36% Zn, and 0.01% Co for an estimated 2.42% CuEq.

Certified Particular person:

Kerry Bates, P. Geo., a “certified individual” for the needs of Nationwide Instrument 43-101 – Requirements of Disclosure for Mineral Initiatives, and a Geologist employed by Eagle Plains Assets, has reviewed and authorized the scientific and technical disclosure on this information launch referring to the Knife Lake Mission.
