Cabral Gold Drills 46.3m @ 2.2 g/t gold and 87.2m @ 1.3 g/t Gold at MG within the Cuiú Cuiú Gold District

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 8, 2022) - Cabral Gold Inc. (TSXV: CBR) (OTC Pink: CBGZF) ("Cabral" or the "Company") is pleased to provide assay results from eleven diamond-drill holes recently completed at the MG gold deposit within the Cuiú Cuiú gold district in northern Brazil.

Highlights are as follows:

  • DDH298 intersected 46.3m @ 2.2 g/t gold within unweathered primary basement mineralization from 103.2m, including 1.0m @ 82.4 g/t gold from 120.0m
  • DDH295 intersected 87.2m @ 1.3 g/t gold from 99.8m within primary hard-rock basement mineralization, including 2.5m @ 8.5 g/t gold from 103.4m and 14.5m @ 3.2 g/t gold from 122.3m. The latter intercept included 1.0m @ 17.0 g/t gold from 123.0m
  • DDH297 returned 39.4m @ 1.0 g/t gold from 93.9m within primary unweathered basement mineralization including 2.0m @ 7.5 g/t gold from 130.0m
  • DDH289A returned 22.3m @ 1.6 g/t gold from 22.7m within the weathered oxide basement saprolite. The hole also intersected 11.7m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface within gold-in-oxide blanket material and 14.7m @ 0.8 g/t gold in fresh rock from 45.0m
  • Other significant mineralized intervals within primary unweathered basement material include DDH287 returning 8.0m @ 1.0 g/t gold from 63.6m, and 8.4m @ 1.4 g/t gold from 76.2m in DDH294

Alan Carter, Cabral's President and CEO, commented, "The on-going drill results from MG continue to confirm the down-dip continuity of MG gold mineralization, particularly within the western part of the deposit. They also suggest there may be other undrilled and steeply plunging higher-grade zones within the overall MG gold deposit that are still to be discovered. The MG gold deposit remains open at depth."

MG Diamond-Drill Results

Assay results were returned on eleven diamond-drill holes (DDH287, DDH289A, and DDH290 to DDH298) that were recently completed within the MG gold deposit (Figure 1).

Section N9342970

DDH295 is the first hole to have been drilled parallel to the MG ore deposit. This hole was specifically designed to test for both grade and structural continuity beneath one of the areas of higher-grade mineralization.

DDH295, as shown on longitudinal Section N9342970 (Figures 1 and 2), intersected intense quartz veining beneath the saprolite/unweathered contact. It returned 87.2m @ 1.3 g/t gold within unweathered hard-rock, including 2.5m @ 8.5 g/t gold and 14.5m @ 3.2 g/t gold, the latter of which also included 1.0m @ 17.0 g/t (Table 1).

DDH295 successfully confirmed both grade and structural continuity. Higher-grade mineralization remains open at depth and appears to have a moderately steep easterly plunge. The lateral extent of the plunging zone also remains open on strike to the east and west.

Section E553060

DDH298 was drilled on section E553060 in the west-central part of the MG gold deposit (Figures 1 and 3). Previous RC drilling on this section had returned lower-grade intercepts, including 15m @ 0.4 g/t gold and 14m @ 0.3 g/t gold in RC265.

DDH298 was drilled 75m downdip of RC265, and intersected 46.3m @ 2.2 g/t gold from 103.2m within primary hard-rock basement mineralization, including 1.0m @ 82.4 g/t gold from 120.0m (Figures 1 and 3, Table 1). This is interpreted to be the same mineralized zone that was intersected in RC265, but is significantly higher grade in DDH298. The hole may have encountered another plunging higher-grade zone. The mineralized zone on section E553060 remains open down dip.

Section E552900

DDH297 was drilled on section E552900 in the western part of the MG gold deposit (Figures 1 and 4). Previous drilling on this section had returned 19m @ 2.2 g/t gold including 7m @ 4.5 g/t gold in RC237.

DDH297 intersected the same mineralized zone that was intersected in RC237 and returned 39.4m @ 1.0 g/t gold from 93.9m within primary hard-rock basement mineralization including 2.0m @ 7.5 g/t gold from 130.0m (Figure 4, Table 1). This hole extends the mineralized zone at least 40m down-dip of the intercept in RC237, and also extends the narrower higher-grade zone. The mineralized zone remains open down-dip.

Interpretation

These recent drill results from the drill program at MG continue to demonstrate the down-dip continuity of gold mineralization in the western and west-central part of the MG gold deposit. Tighter spaced drilling has established potential plunges that may define higher-grade mineralization within the larger gold deposit.

Drill results indicate that gold grades persist to depth. Isolated higher-grade intercepts encountered elsewhere still need to be tested for plunge controls, whilst in other areas the drill spacing is still too wide and may have missed higher grade shoots. The MG deposit remains open down-dip on every section drilled to date.
