Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - January 10, 2024) - Exploits Discovery Corp. (CSE: NFLD) (OTCQX: NFLDF) (FSE: 634) ("Exploits" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that diamond drilling operations have commenced on its Bullseye gold property located within the Appleton Fault exploration trend near Gander, Newfoundland, Canada.


  • Drilling will be a results-driven program focused on the potential strike extension of the high-grade Jackpot gold discovery publicized by New Found Gold Corp. ("NFG") throughout the second half of 2023.

  • NFG's Jackpot mineralized trend is located within 200-300 metres of the Bullseye claim boundary.

  • Initial 2,500 metre drill program at Bullseye includes approximately 10 NQ core-diamond drill holes, averaging 250 metres in depth.

  • 2023 ground MAG / VLF survey data suggests the claims within the southern sector of Bullseye have been transected by several eastern-trending structural zones that appear to correspond to NFG's high grade Lotto and Jackpot gold discoveries.

  • The Company has contracted Trust Drilling, a reputable all-local diamond drilling contractor for this drill program.

Jeff Swinoga, President and CEO, commented, "Bullseye is one of our most exciting properties in our portfolio with the potential to generate multiple gold discoveries in the near term. As you might remember last year, we paused drilling at Bullseye soon after announcing our first gold discovery "Horseshoe", as NFG subsequently announced three new gold discoveries (Jackpot, Everst and K2) on the southern borders of our Bullseye property. We were patient but eager to bring back the drill rig as NFG continued to announce success at Jackpot and K2.

"With the success at NFG's Jackpot, its close proximity to our Bullseye's eastern border, and the various second order faults that appear to track from Jackpot onto the southern region of Bullseye gave us confidence that south Bullseye is a compelling high-priority drill target. Therefore, we decided that now is the time to start the new drill program targeting the potential extension of Jackpot."

Bullseye Gold Property

The Bullseye claims were staked by Exploits in September 2022, and are contiguous to the several high-grade gold targets actively being drilled by both NFG and Labrador Gold. The claims are considered by the Company's geologists to be highly prospective because they directly overlay a 1,200 by 800 metre segment of the Appleton Fault Zone and its related splay structures. Over a dozen exploration drill rigs have been employed by the three companies operating within this structural-stratigraphic setting over the past three years.
