About MAS Gold Corp.
MAS Gold Corp. is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused
on gold exploration projects in the prospective La Ronge Gold Belt
of Saskatchewan. MAS Gold operates
four properties in the belt, including the Preview-North, Greywacke
Lake, Elizabeth Lake and Henry Lake
Properties that extend along segments totaling roughly 60
kilometres of the geologically prospective La Ronge, Kisseynew and Glennie Domains that
make up the La Ronge Gold Belt.
MAS Gold's current projects include the North Lake, Greywacke North, Bakos (Contact
Lake) and Point gold deposits and the historically defined
Elizabeth Lake copper-gold
volcanic-hosted massive sulphide deposit within four properties
totalling 34,703.4 hectares (85,753.8 acres).
The North Lake deposit located
at the Preview-North Property is estimated to contain an Inferred
Mineral Resource of 18,100,000 t grading 0.85 g/t Au, hence 494,000
contained ounces of gold (Godden, S, Thomas, D. Tupper, D.
Technical Report on the Mineral Resource Updates, North Lake and Greywacke North Gold Projects,
La Ronge Gold Belt, Saskatchewan,
Canada.; effective date December
1, 2021)*. The Technical Report about the updated Mineral
Resource estimate was filed on SEDAR January, 12, 2022.
The Greywacke North deposit, which hosts multiple known
stratabound, high-grade gold-bearing zones, has an updated,
combined open pit and underground Indicated Mineral Resource of
645,000 t averaging 4.90 g/t Au for 101,000 insitu ounces of gold
(600,000 t at 4.89 g/t Au, and 45,000t at 5.03 g/t Au,
respectively), plus a combined open pit and underground Inferred
Mineral Resource of 410,000 t averaging 4.12 g/t Au for 55,000
insitu ounces of gold (35,000 t at 1.97 g/t Au, and 375,000 t at
4.33 g/t Au, respectively). The Indicated and Inferred Mineral
Resources were estimated using open pit and underground cut-off
grades of 0.65 g/t Au and 1.75 g/t Au, respectively (Godden, S,
Thomas, D. Tupper, D. Technical Report on the Mineral Resource
Updates, North Lake and Greywacke
North Gold Projects, La Ronge Gold Belt, Saskatchewan, Canada.; effective date
December 1, 2021). The Technical
Report about the updated Mineral Resource estimate was filed on
SEDAR January 12, 2022.
