8020 Admin posted a press release Harfang Generates the Kali Property Near Azimut's Patwon Gold Discovery Following Claim Acquisition (James Bay, Québec) in HARFANG EXPLORATION INC.


ONTREAL, Jan. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harfang Exploration Inc. (“Harfang”) (TSX-V: HAR) is pleased to announce the generation of the new Kali Property (the “Property”) in the vicinity of Azimut Exploration’s Patwon gold discovery (James Bay, Québec) (Figure 1). The Property is made up of 194 mineral claims (10,232 ha) entirely owned by Harfang.


The Property covers significant grounds along the Middle and Lower Eastmain Greenstone Belt (MLEGB) near the contact between the La Grande and Nemiscau-Opinaca geological subprovinces. This contact is spatially associated with significant gold deposits and occurrences (eg. Eleonore mine, and Cheechoo and La Pointe prospects). The Property is divided into two separate claim blocks plus two isolated claims. One of them, located inside Azimut’s Elmer Property, was acquired by Harfang in 2018.


Rock assemblages on the Property, as mapped by the ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles du Québec, are similar to those described by Azimut in the surroundings of the discovery (see TSX-V AZM’s press release dated on January 14, 2020 / 3.15 g/t Au over 102.0 m). As evidenced by the Québec Government regional magnetic survey, rock units in the western claim block are strongly affected by a major NE-SW dextral deformation corridor along the northwestern edge of the MLEGB. This corridor merges with the east-west contact between both subprovinces inside the Property limits offering favorable structural traps for gold mineralization.


The Kali Project is located 280 km north of Matagami. The western block is located 20 km east of Eastmain’s Cree Community and is accessible by air transportation or by boat along the Eastmain River. The eastern block is located immediately west of the James Bay paved road and is easily accessible by ground transportation. The region benefits from quality infrastructure including roads, hydroelectric power supply and airports.


Harfang is currently compiling historical geological data along this portion of the greenstone belt which will evolve in designing the first exploration program on this new property.

8020 Admin posted a press release Harfang Obtains High Gold Grain Counts in Glacial Tills and Increases its Land Position at Serpent (James Bay, Québec) in HARFANG EXPLORATION INC.


MONTREAL, Jan. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harfang Exploration Inc. (“Harfang”) (TSX-V: HAR) is pleased to report high gold grain counts in till samples (up to 324 gold grains) collected on the Serpent Property (the “Property”) located in James Bay (Québec) delineating a new highly prospective unexplored area (Figures 1 and 2). The Corporation adds 185 claims to its 100% owned Property which is now made up of 523 claims (27,065 ha). An induced polarization survey will be conducted during winter 2020 in the new gold-in-till anomaly and the surroundings of the Mista prospect.


Till Survey


Results from the fall 2019 till survey have outlined a large gold-in-till anomaly defined by a cluster of 9 samples with high gold grain counts (≥20 total gold grains) covering a 4 km2 area in the southwestern part of the Property. Two of the samples returned 235 and 324 total gold grains with 155 and 217 pristine grains, respectively (Figure 3). Pristine grains are delicate pieces of free gold that are generally interpreted to have been derived from bedrock sources close to the sampling sites. The survey, which consisted in 125 till samples exclusively collected in the southwestern part of the Property, also returned 4 additional isolated samples with high gold grain counts (≥20 grains) (Figures 2 and 3). Most samples were taken inside the interpreted limits of a pluri-kilometric deformation corridor (Figure 4). Figure 2 also shows results from the till 2018 survey which guided Harfang’s geologists towards the discovery of several gold showings in 2019 (see press releases published on October 17 and December 10, 2019).


According to preliminary conclusions by Les Consultants Inlandsis, the contractor mandated to interpret the till results, gold grains appear to be derived from local bedrock sources (<200 m up-ice). This interpretation is based on 1) the high ratios of pristine grains in most of the gold-rich tills and 2) the limited glacial transportation deduced from the absence of well-developed glacial dispersal trains. Hypothetical bedrock sources for these gold grains open up a totally new unexplored area. Interestingly, magnetic discontinuities suggesting regional WNW-ESE structures extending over more than 5 km are abundant in the outlined sector (Figure 4). Harfang now considers that this specific portion of the Property represents a high-priority prospective target. Other isolated anomalous till samples shown in figures 2-4 are considered as priority targets too. Known high-grade gold showings cannot account for the large gold-in-till anomaly as they are located more than 6 km to the east. The quantity of gold grains reported (amongst the highest counts in any surveys in James Bay) and the aerial extent of the anomalies further confirm the district gold endowment and its high prospectivity.


Since 2017, Harfang has discovered a total of 15 gold showings on the Property with 10 of them grading more than 10 g/t Au (up to 186 g/t Au and 200 g/t Ag at Lawr). These gold occurrences are all associated with decimetric (10-30 cm wide) quartz veins hosted in foliated/gneissic tonalite and gabbroic dykes or at the contact between both lithologies. The Mista prospect (0.99% Cu, 0.2 g/t Au and 7.7 g/t Ag over 11.7 m), mapped over at least 350 m laterally, corresponds to a sulfide-bearing quartz-rich arenite injected by quartz veins. A spatial link exists between gold-bearing quartz veins and extensive E-W to WNW-ESE structural breaks represented by magnetic discontinuities (Figure 4). The new gold-in-till anomaly is spatially associated with such magnetic discontinuities in an area which has never been explored by Harfang or any other explorers.


2020 Winter Exploration Program


Given the success of the 2019 till program in highlighting new exploration targets, Harfang is highly motivated to undertake significant exploration on the Property in the upcoming months. The Corporation will proceed to an induced polarization survey during winter 2020 covering regional structures possibly linked to gold mineralization dispersed by glaciers in nearby till. This ground geophysical survey will also test the Mista trend which hosts the Mista Cu-Au-Ag prospect.

The technical and scientific information in this press release has been prepared and approved by François Huot, P.Geo, Chief geologist at Harfang, a "qualified person" as defined by NI 43-101.


Quality control


Till samples were collected from hand-dug pits at depths up to 1 m by employees from SL Exploration Inc. Sampling sites are separated from each other by approximately 200-250 m and distributed along lines spaced 1 km apart. Each sample (11-17 kg) was placed in a plastic bag which was identified by a specific tag number and securely sealed with fibertape. Samples were sent in two separate batches to Overburden Drilling Management [ODM] (Nepean, Ontario). This laboratory proceeded with the grain count, with the identification of some indicator minerals, and with the determination of gold grain shape from the non-magnetic heavy mineral concentrates. Quantities of grains mentioned in the text and shown in figures correspond to normalized values calculated from the counts given by ODM by adjusting the table feed weights (fraction <2 mm) to 10 kg.


Till is a transported surficial media produced during active glaciation that may be affected by subsequent surficial processes resulting in the possible modification of the gold content. As such, the occurrence of a gold anomaly in till is not conclusive evidence of a mineral deposit existing within the Property limits.


The sampling procedure and the quality control related to the till program followed protocols developed by SL Exploration and ODM. Interpretation of the results was done by Les Consultants Inlandsis and Harfang’s qualified employees.

8020 Admin posted a press release Additional Gold Discoveries for Harfang on its Serpent Property (James Bay, Québec) in HARFANG EXPLORATION INC.

MONTREAL, Dec. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harfang Exploration Inc. (“Harfang”) (TSX-V: HAR) is pleased to report additional high-grade gold discoveries (up to 117 g/t Au in grab samples) on the Serpent Property (the “Property”) located in James Bay (Québec) (Figure 1). Gold was found in 6 new locations adding to previous discoveries for a total of 15 gold showings. These new results steming from the fall 2019 program are spatially associated to pluri-kilometric deformation corridors suggesting a strong structural control of the mineralization. The Corporation is actually elaborating its 2020 exploration program on the Property which is expected to begin by an induced polarization survey during winter in the surroundings of the Mista prospect.


Highlights:



  • Discovery of new gold occurrences aligned into major structural corridors:

       Anaconda West: Up to 117.00 g/t Au, 6.6 g/t Ag and 0.10% Pb
       Anaconda East: 3.38 g/t Au
       Couleuvre: 38.40 g/t Au
       Reptile: 13.65 g/t Au
       SER-19-RO-060: 1.25 g/t Au
       SER-19-FH-159: 1.43 g/t Au.


New Gold Discoveries


Harfang completed another prospecting and geological mapping program in September 2019 on the Property once more confirming the occurrence of high-grade gold quartz veins in the surroundings of the Mista (Cu-Au-Ag) and Lawr (Au-Ag) prospects. Figure 2 shows a few examples of these gold-rich veins. Table 1 lists all grab samples with >1 g/t Au collected on outcrops during the fall program. Grab samples are selective by nature and are not necessarily representative of the mineralized zones. A total of 170 rock samples were collected from outcrops (grabs and channels) and glacial floats. Simultaneously, 125 till samples were collected in the southwestern quadrant of the Property in the vicinity of magnetic discontinuities possibly representing the extension of structural breaks containing gold-rich quartz veins. Results for these till samples are pending.

8020 Admin posted a press release Harfang Discovers 5 New High-Grade Gold Occurrences On Its Serpent Property (James Bay, Québec) in HARFANG EXPLORATION INC.

MONTREAL, Oct. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harfang Exploration Inc. (“Harfang”) (TSX-V: HAR) reports the discovery of 5 new occurrences of high-grade gold (up to 186 g/t Au in grab samples) on the Serpent Property (the “Property”) located in James Bay (Québec) following its summer program (Figure 1). Motivated by these positive results, the Corporation immediately followed up with additional work on the Property during fall to rake the immediate sector and track down these excellent results.


Highlights:



  • Discovery of 5 high-grade gold showings (Table 1):
        Lawr: Up to 186 g/t Au and 200 g/t Ag (grab); 9.79 g/t Au over 1.25 m (channel)
        Python: 20.5 g/t Au (grab)
        Cobra: 18.45 g/t Au (grab)
        Camp: Up to 11.5 g/t Au (grab)
        Boa: 3.02 g/t Au (grab);



  • Mineralization in these showings occurs in quartz veins hosted in foliated tonalite and gabbro inside a newly identified structural domain [orogenic gold system];
     

  • Extension of the Mista prospect (Cu-Au-Ag) for an additional 100 m towards northwest with 0.59% Cu, 0.25 g/t Au and 6.42 g/t Ag over 5.6 m and 0.59% Cu, 0.21 g/t Au and 7.66 g/t Ag over 2.05 m [intrusion-related system].


Five new gold showings


Harfang’s team, composed of 7 geologists, geology students and technicians, carried out prospecting and geological mapping on the Property during the first half of summer 2019. All operations were conducted from a temporary camp established in the Mista area. A total of 328 grab and channel samples were collected from outcrops, trenches and glacial floats in the southern part of the Property.


Exploration work in the area of the Mista prospect (Cu-Au-Ag) revealed the existence of several decimetric gold-bearing quartz veins hosted in foliated tonalites and gabbros. The most significant discovery refers to the Lawr zone, a gold-bearing structure extending laterally for at least 100 m in an east-west direction. Gold values in grab samples collected in the 20-30 cm thick quartz vein are commonly above 10 g/t Au (Table 1 and Figure 2). Grab samples are selective by nature and are not necessarily representative of the mineralized zones. Three channels with significant grades were completed returning 9.79 g/t Au over 1.25 m, 8.1 g/t Au over 0.50 m and 4.32 g/t Au over 0.5 m (channels opened at both extremities). The latest channel is located along a sheared corridor parallel to Lawr, some 25 m north of the main quartz vein. Visible gold was observed in a few samples and disseminations and clusters of pyrite, galena and arsenopyrite are common. At Lawr, gold is associated to a high silver content (up to 200 g/t Ag) and anomalous concentrations in Pb, Zn and As (Table 1).


Other new gold showings share similarities with the geological setting of the Lawr zone. All of them correspond to quartz veins hosted in tonalite and gabbro (Figure 3). These gold-bearing veins tend to be laminated shear veins subparallel to the sheared host rock and are preferentially emplaced at the contact between tonalite and gabbro. Extensional NNW-SSE and pegmatite-related quartz veins are also common on the Property. The mineralization style appears to be related to an orogenic gold system developed in an east-west deformation zone several kilometers wide (Figure 4).

Quality control


Till samples were collected from hand-dug pits at depths up to 1 m by employees from SL Exploration Inc. Sampling sites are separated from each other by approximately 200-250 m and distributed along lines spaced 1 km apart. Each sample (11-17 kg) was placed in a plastic bag which was identified by a specific tag number and securely sealed with fibertape. Samples were sent in two separate batches to Overburden Drilling Management [ODM] (Nepean, Ontario). This laboratory proceeded with the grain count, with the identification of some indicator minerals, and with the determination of gold grain shape from the non-magnetic heavy mineral concentrates. Quantities of grains mentioned in the text and shown in figures correspond to normalized values calculated from the counts given by ODM by adjusting the table feed weights (fraction <2 mm) to 10 kg.


Till is a transported surficial media produced during active glaciation that may be affected by subsequent surficial processes resulting in the possible modification of the gold content. As such, the occurrence of a gold anomaly in till is not conclusive evidence of a mineral deposit existing within the Property limits.


The sampling procedure and the quality control related to the till program followed protocols developed by SL Exploration and ODM. Interpretation of the results was done by Les Consultants Inlandsis and Harfang’s qualified employees.

8020 Admin posted a press release Additional Gold Discoveries for Harfang on its Serpent Property (James Bay, Québec) in HARFANG EXPLORATION INC.

MONTREAL, Dec. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harfang Exploration Inc. (“Harfang”) (TSX-V: HAR) is pleased to report additional high-grade gold discoveries (up to 117 g/t Au in grab samples) on the Serpent Property (the “Property”) located in James Bay (Québec) (Figure 1). Gold was found in 6 new locations adding to previous discoveries for a total of 15 gold showings. These new results steming from the fall 2019 program are spatially associated to pluri-kilometric deformation corridors suggesting a strong structural control of the mineralization. The Corporation is actually elaborating its 2020 exploration program on the Property which is expected to begin by an induced polarization survey during winter in the surroundings of the Mista prospect.


Highlights:



  • Discovery of new gold occurrences aligned into major structural corridors:

       Anaconda West: Up to 117.00 g/t Au, 6.6 g/t Ag and 0.10% Pb
       Anaconda East: 3.38 g/t Au
       Couleuvre: 38.40 g/t Au
       Reptile: 13.65 g/t Au
       SER-19-RO-060: 1.25 g/t Au
       SER-19-FH-159: 1.43 g/t Au.


New Gold Discoveries


Harfang completed another prospecting and geological mapping program in September 2019 on the Property once more confirming the occurrence of high-grade gold quartz veins in the surroundings of the Mista (Cu-Au-Ag) and Lawr (Au-Ag) prospects. Figure 2 shows a few examples of these gold-rich veins. Table 1 lists all grab samples with >1 g/t Au collected on outcrops during the fall program. Grab samples are selective by nature and are not necessarily representative of the mineralized zones. A total of 170 rock samples were collected from outcrops (grabs and channels) and glacial floats. Simultaneously, 125 till samples were collected in the southwestern quadrant of the Property in the vicinity of magnetic discontinuities possibly representing the extension of structural breaks containing gold-rich quartz veins. Results for these till samples are pending.

8020 Admin posted a press release Harfang Discovers 5 New High-Grade Gold Occurrences On Its Serpent Property (James Bay, Québec) in HARFANG EXPLORATION INC.

MONTREAL, Oct. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harfang Exploration Inc. (“Harfang”) (TSX-V: HAR) reports the discovery of 5 new occurrences of high-grade gold (up to 186 g/t Au in grab samples) on the Serpent Property (the “Property”) located in James Bay (Québec) following its summer program (Figure 1). Motivated by these positive results, the Corporation immediately followed up with additional work on the Property during fall to rake the immediate sector and track down these excellent results.


Highlights:



  • Discovery of 5 high-grade gold showings (Table 1):
        Lawr: Up to 186 g/t Au and 200 g/t Ag (grab); 9.79 g/t Au over 1.25 m (channel)
        Python: 20.5 g/t Au (grab)
        Cobra: 18.45 g/t Au (grab)
        Camp: Up to 11.5 g/t Au (grab)
        Boa: 3.02 g/t Au (grab);



  • Mineralization in these showings occurs in quartz veins hosted in foliated tonalite and gabbro inside a newly identified structural domain [orogenic gold system];
     

  • Extension of the Mista prospect (Cu-Au-Ag) for an additional 100 m towards northwest with 0.59% Cu, 0.25 g/t Au and 6.42 g/t Ag over 5.6 m and 0.59% Cu, 0.21 g/t Au and 7.66 g/t Ag over 2.05 m [intrusion-related system].


Five new gold showings


Harfang’s team, composed of 7 geologists, geology students and technicians, carried out prospecting and geological mapping on the Property during the first half of summer 2019. All operations were conducted from a temporary camp established in the Mista area. A total of 328 grab and channel samples were collected from outcrops, trenches and glacial floats in the southern part of the Property.


Exploration work in the area of the Mista prospect (Cu-Au-Ag) revealed the existence of several decimetric gold-bearing quartz veins hosted in foliated tonalites and gabbros. The most significant discovery refers to the Lawr zone, a gold-bearing structure extending laterally for at least 100 m in an east-west direction. Gold values in grab samples collected in the 20-30 cm thick quartz vein are commonly above 10 g/t Au (Table 1 and Figure 2). Grab samples are selective by nature and are not necessarily representative of the mineralized zones. Three channels with significant grades were completed returning 9.79 g/t Au over 1.25 m, 8.1 g/t Au over 0.50 m and 4.32 g/t Au over 0.5 m (channels opened at both extremities). The latest channel is located along a sheared corridor parallel to Lawr, some 25 m north of the main quartz vein. Visible gold was observed in a few samples and disseminations and clusters of pyrite, galena and arsenopyrite are common. At Lawr, gold is associated to a high silver content (up to 200 g/t Ag) and anomalous concentrations in Pb, Zn and As (Table 1).


Other new gold showings share similarities with the geological setting of the Lawr zone. All of them correspond to quartz veins hosted in tonalite and gabbro (Figure 3). These gold-bearing veins tend to be laminated shear veins subparallel to the sheared host rock and are preferentially emplaced at the contact between tonalite and gabbro. Extensional NNW-SSE and pegmatite-related quartz veins are also common on the Property. The mineralization style appears to be related to an orogenic gold system developed in an east-west deformation zone several kilometers wide (Figure 4).
