Kesselrun Prepares for Further Drilling and Provides Update on Brokered Private Placement

Thunder Bay, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 26, 2020) -  Kesselrun Resources Ltd. (TSXV: KES) ("Kesselrun" or the "Company") is pleased to provide final results from the initial drill program on the Huronian Gold Project as it prepares for the next phase of drilling. Results reported are from the McKellar and Huronian Zones.

Highlights

  • High grade plunging shoot intersected at McKellar assayed 22.6 g/t over 1.0 m within a wider zone of 2.7 g/t over 16.8 m in hole 20HUR025
  • Other McKellar intercepts assayed 1.1 g/t over 19.1 m in hole 20HUR020, 1.0 g/t over 21.8 m in hole 20HUR021 and 1.1 g/t over 15.9 m in hole 20HUR023 outlining a wide zone of gold mineralization.
  • Huronian Zone drilling shows significant gold mineralization remaining among the historically mined area with hole 20HUR028 intercepting 8.7 g/t over 1.0 m within a wider zone of 0.8 g/t over 13.0 m in the hanging wall of 203S stope (200 foot level) and hole 20HUR029 intercepting 13.0 g/t over 0.9 m above 101S stope (100 foot level).

Michael Thompson, P.Geo., President and CEO of the Company, commented, "Our drilling on the McKellar Zone is the first step in our plan to extend mineralization down dip and along the more than two kilometres of strike length to the southwest. To the northeast of the McKellar zone lies the Huronian Zone where historic mining was focused on the narrow high-grade quartz veins which are hosted within a wide mineralized shear zone. We believe there is enormous potential to outline remnant mineralization amongst the historic workings as well as down dip and north east strike extents".

The 2020 Huronian drill program targeted four zones; Fisher, Fisher North, McKellar and Huronian. The four zones are in close proximity along an approximate 1500 m strike length in the area of the historic Huronian Mine. The zones include multiple generations of quartz veins that carry high grade gold values in association with altered, sheared and variably mineralized mafic volcanics, feldspar-quartz porphyries and iron formation.

Previous operators have focused on the Fisher, Fisher North and McKellar Zones where drilling has been concentrated at near surface depths of 75 metres or less, while the Huronian Zone has been mostly unexplored since the closure of the mine in 1936. As a result, Kesselrun believes there to be significant upside potential on all zones.

(1)Widths are drill indicated core length as insufficient drilling has been undertaken to determine true widths at this time. Average grades are calculated with un-capped gold assays as insufficient drilling has been completed to determine capping levels for higher grade gold intercepts.

Update on Brokered Private Placement

The Company is also pleased to announce that it has been notified by Red Cloud Securities that the brokered financing announced on November 16, 2020, upsized from up to $3.0 million to up to $5.0 million, has been fully subscribed and allocated. The Company will notify the market when the financing has closed.

About the Huronian Gold Project

The 100% owned Huronian Gold Project hosts the past producing Huronian Mine, Northwestern Ontario's first gold mine with an historic resource estimate of 44,592 oz Au @ 15.3 g/t Au in the indicated category and 501,377 oz Au @ 14.4 g/t Au in the inferred category. The resource estimate presented for the Huronian Project is historic in nature. Kesselrun Resources' qualified person has not completed sufficient work to confirm the results of the historical resource. Kesselrun Resources is not treating this as a current mineral resource but is considering it relevant as a guide to future exploration and is included for reference purposes only. The historic resource was estimated by Minescape Exploration Inc. in 1998. Further drilling will be required by Kesselrun Resources to verify the historic estimate as current mineral resources.

As well, the Huronian Gold Project hosts the same lithological package of rocks, as interpreted from both Government of Ontario and Kesselrun Resources mapping, compilation and modelling, on strike from Wesdome Gold's adjacent Moss Lake Gold Deposit with a resource estimate of 1,377,300 oz Au @ 1.1 g/t Au in the indicated category and 1,751,600 oz Au @ 1.1 g/t Au in the inferred category as outlined in their 2013 PEA2. Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on Kesselrun Resources' property.
