VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pegasus Resources Inc. (TSX-V: PEGA; Frankfurt – OQS2, OTC/Pink Sheet symbol SLTFF) (the “Company” or “Pegasus”) is pleased to announce that Infinite Ore Corp. (“Infinite”) has commenced a 2,500 meter drill program on the Confederation North property (formally known as Dixie 17-20) within their Eastern Vision Project.
Infinite’s Eastern Vision Project is located south-east of Red Lake, Ontario and east of the high-grade gold discovery of Great Bear Resources Ltd. The drill program will test gold, copper, and silver anomalies from a recent Spaciotemporal Geochemical Hydrocarbon (“SGH”) survey conducted on portions of the Confederation North property by Infinite. (see Figure 1)
Charles Desjardins, President of Pegasus commented, “We are excited to see the start of this 2,500 meter drill program on the Confederation North property and are anxious to see the results. Access to the property and logistics are very good, so I anticipate an efficient drill program.”
Infinite has optioned three properties from Pegasus which are part of their Eastern Vision Project. The three properties are Fredart (80% optioned), Garnet Lake (80% optioned) and Confederation North (formally Dixie 17-20) (75% optioned with option to increase to 90%).
Past exploration in Infinite’s Eastern Vision Project which consists of the Fredart, Garnet Lake, Confederation North and Confederation South has focused on VMS targets within the Confederation Lake assemblage near Red Lake, Ontario. The Garnet Lake properties hold 43-101 compliant inferred mineral resources of 2.1 million tonnes grading 5.78% Zn, 0.72% Cu, 19.5 g/t Ag, and 0.6 g/t Au. The Fredart property contains an historical resource of 386,200 tonnes grading 1.56% Cu and 33.6 g/t Ag*.
