FOKUS MINING BEGINS ITS WINTER DRILLING PROGRAM ON THE GALLOWAY PROJECT
November 29, 2023 – Fokus Mining Corporation (“Fokus” or the “Company”) (TSXV-FKM) (OTCQB: FKMCF) (FSE: F7E1) is pleased to announce that it began its winter drilling program on the Galloway Project in the Abitibi region last week. This campaign will be entirely devoted to drilling, with a minimum of 1,500 metres planned. As indicated in the press release of September 6, 2023, the first series of holes is being completed on the Moriss Zone for a total of around 950 metres with six shallow holes designed to validate a possible NS gold system. Several holes had already intersected high gold values in this sector and an initial NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate for Moriss was released earlier in 2023: 514,000 tonnes grading 2.74 g/t gold. The program will also include a series of holes in the Fayolle sector located North East of Moriss.
Jean Rainville, President, and CEO of Fokus stated: “Having reviewed the data, we believe it is worth continuing our efforts at Moriss and additional funds will be allocated to Fayolle in the short term to complete our minimum target of 1,500 metres in this campaign”.
In other news, Fokus states that the sponsorship contract that the Company had signed with RocksAndStocksNews, a private company based in Mexico and headed by Allan Laboucan, expired on October the 17, 2023. The contract with this online precious metals and mining stocks portal, worth $15,000, had been paid in full at the beginning of the period, and therefore no shares or options were given as additional compensation.
The Company has also just entered into a one month sponsorship agreement with Gold Investment Letter, a Miami based private entity for cash consideration of $50,000. No shares or options will be issued as part of compensation.
Jean Rainville concludes: “Our efforts on Moriss are aimed at improving the initial NI 43-101 estimate, and we are confident that this new drilling program will provide us with additional valuable information on this zone. We are also now also initiating an exploration effort on the Fayolle sector with a series of drillholes’.
