Vancouver BC based Canadian HighGold Mining has announced an updated NI43-101 mineral resource estimate for the Johnson Tract Deposit at the Company’s Johnson Tract polymetallic Gold Project located in coastal South Central Alaska in USA. Updated Indicated Resource – 3.49 million tonnes grading 9.39 g/t gold equivalent for 1,053,000 oz AuEqUpdated Inferred Resource – 0.71 million tonnes grading 4.76 g/t AuEq for 108,000 oz AuEqGrowth – 40% increase in Indicated AuEq ounces and 54% increase in total tonnes (+60% Ind and -19% Inf) over the 2020 MRE (See Company news release dated April 29, 2020)High Confidence – 91% of the total AuEq ounces in the Indicated Resource CategoryPeer-Leading Thickness – Indicated resource averages 40-meter horizontal width, roughly 10 times the mineable width of most high-grade (+5 g/t) underground gold depositsIdeal Geometry for Low-Cost Methods of Underground Mining – thick, subvertical deposit with potential for lateral development from the valley floor to access the deepest and highest-grade portions of the deposit first and for gravity-assisted, bottom-up miningExcellent Metallurgy – high metal recoveries, including global gold recovery up to 97%, utilizing conventional processing at a coarse grind size (See Company news release dated June 22, 2022)Expansion Potential – open to expansion along strike/down-dip/down-plunge with numerous high-priority property-wide targets including the Difficult Creek and Milkbone prospectsJohnson Tract is a poly-metallic (gold, copper, zinc, silver, lead) project located near tidewater, 125 miles (200 kilometers) southwest of Anchorage, Alaska, USA. The 21,000-acre property includes the high-grade JT Deposit and at least nine other mineral prospects over a 12-kilometer strike length. HighGold acquired the Project through a lease agreement with Cook Inlet Region Inc, one of 12 land-based Alaska Native regional corporations created by the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971. CIRI is owned by more than 9,100 shareholders who are primarily of Alaska Native descent. Mineralization at Johnson Tract occurs in Jurassic-age intermediate volcaniclastic rocks and is characterized as epithermal-type with submarine volcanogenic attributes. The JT Deposit is a thick, steeply dipping silicified body (20m to 50m average true thickness) that contains a stockwork of quartz-sulphide veinlets and brecciation, cutting through and surrounded by a widespread zone of anhydrite alteration. The Footwall Copper Zone is located structurally and stratigraphically below JT Deposit and is characterized by copper-silver rich mineralization. Prior to HighGold, the Project was last explored in the mid-1990s by a mid-tier mining company that evaluated direct shipping material from Johnson to the Premier Mill near Stewart, British Columbia.HighGold is a well-funded mineral exploration company focused on high-grade gold projects located in North America. HighGold also controls a portfolio of quality gold projects in the greater Timmins gold camp, Ontario, Canada that includes the Munro-Croesus Gold property, which is renowned for its high-grade mineralization, and the large Golden Mile and Timmins South properties.
