Tarku Report more High-Grade Results on its Silver Strike Project

private placementDownload PDF version   |   View all documents on Sedar

MONTREAL, August 3rd, 2022. Tarku Resources Ltd (TSX-V: TKU – FRA: 7TK – OTCQB: TRKUF) (the “Company” or “Tarku”) is pleased to announce the results of a sampling campaign completed at the historic Solstice Mine, within the 100% owned Silver Strike Project, located in the Tombstone Mining District Cochise County, Arizona.

Highlights:

  • 552.5 g/t Ag Eq, including 482 g/t Ag and 1% lead-zinc combined
  • 407.3 g/t Ag Eq, including 353 g/t Ag and 0.7% lead-zinc combined
  • 358.2 g/t Ag Eq, including 280 g/t Ag and 1.6% lead-zinc combined
  • 354.3 g/t Ag Eq, including 187 g/t Ag and 2.3% lead-zinc combined
  • 303.1 g/t Ag Eq, including 244 g/t Ag and 1.1% lead-zinc combined

Julien Davy, President and CEO of Tarku Resources said: As more high-grade results continue to roll in from our Silver Strike Project, the Solstice Zone has given us results that fully justify further exploration. The samples have demonstrated that the remaining silver content is more substantial than we expected, and that the interception of the conjugate veins sets controls higher-grade zones. These intersections form high-grade ore shoots within breccias and stockworks, that remain open at depth, and control the distribution of high-grade silver-lead-zinc-manganese mineralization at the Solstice Zone. This new information will be critical as we finalise targeting for the upcoming are 6,000m drill program.

Solstice Area:

The assay results come from grab and chip samples taken in June 2022 during managements site visit to the project. Samples were taken to test different areas along the Solstice exploration adit, opened during the 1990’s, which aimed to explore the veins around the historic Solstice Mine. Tarku’s program focused on the enrichment associated with the intersection of two veining systems (N030 and N090) that create cigar shaped ore shoots, which dip steeply to the northwest (see figure below). These enriched zones were historically worked at the Solstice Mine until 240 feet where they hit the water table. According to Tarku’s results, background silver content in a single vein appears to grade between 10 and 90g/t silver (or 0.3 to 3 oz/t silver), while the ore shoots contain silver grades between 180 and 482 g/t silver (or 6 to 15 oz/t silver).

According to historical compilation, the Solstice Mine has been sporadically worked from a vertical shaft between 1914 and 1940 producing 475 tons of ore containing 20,761 oz of Ag, 107 oz of Au, 841 lb of Cu and 133,865 lb of Pb. During those years the historic miners biggest challenge remained the water table around 240 feet below surface opening today’s potential for substantial mineralization at depth.

Tarku’s focus during the next drill program at the Solstice area will be to test the depth continuity of those ore shoots and to demonstrate the stability of the mineralization high-grade values.

private placementDownload PDF version   |   View all documents on Sedar

MONTREAL, June 28, 2022. Tarku Resources Ltd (TSX-V: TKU – FRA: 7TK – OTCQB: TRKUF) (the “Company” or “Tarku”) is pleased to announce its Chairman, Bernard Lapointe, President and CEO, Julien Davy, and a team of consultants has completed a site visit to the 100% owned Silver Strike Project, located in the Tombstone Mining District Cochise County, Arizona.

The site visit focused on validating and ground truthing the results of Tarku’s 2021 drill program and the recently completed geophysical campaigns, concentrating on the Lucky Cuss, the Ground Hog and Solstice Targets.

  • At the Ground Hog Target, work was undertaken to improve the Company’s understanding of the Mantos type mineralization discovered at the contact between the Nacos and the Bisbee Limestones, during last drill program.
  • This Target is a newly discovered mineralized zone that was never worked historically and returned 48g/t AgEq over 7.6 m at a depth of 150 m below the surface and 2,447 g/t AgEq on a grab sample on surface (see August 10, 2021 press release)
  • At the Solstice Target, work focused on the definition of the conjugate veining system (N030 and N090) and the associated enrichment in silver and manganese mineralization associated with coalescence of the two vein systems, where the mineralized zones can be up to 6m (true width).
  • Samples of this remnant mineralisation have sent for assays with results expected in early-Q3 2022.
  • The multi-mineral potential, coherent with the Carbonate Replacement Deposit model (CRD model), is now well defined at Silver Strike as demonstrated by Tarku’s high-grade drill and grab samples, rich in in Silver, Gold, Copper, Lead, Zinc and Manganese, validating historical mineral variations that was previously misunderstood.
  • 6,000m drill program testing these exciting targets remains on target to commence this year.

Julien Davy, President and CEO of Tarku Resources said: “The site visit to Silver Strike with a team of geologists and a GIS specialist has allowed us to further assess the implications of the recently completed program of drilling and geophysics. Our interpretation of the results of this work is ongoing and we will update the market further in due coarse. Historical mining in the area left a lot of mineralisation behind for several reasons as technical issues or commodity prices too low. Our work will all feed into our targeting work ahead of are 6,000m drill program due to commence this year.”

Tarku’s Generates 5.35km of Targets for Drilling its 3As Projects, Quebec

private placementDownload PDF version   |   View all documents on Sedar

MONTREAL, May 26, 2022. Tarku Resources Ltd (TSX-V: TKU – FRA: 7TK – OTCQB: TRKUF) (the “Company” or “Tarku”) is pleased to announce that nine high-priority targets, totalling 5.35km in length, have been generated ahead of the maiden drill program at the Apollo Gold Project, following the completion and interpretation of the deep-penetrating and high-resolution IP survey. Apollo is located in the Matagami area, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec.

  • Nine (9) high-priority Target Zones, covering a total strike length of 5.35km generated by independent consultant
  • Targets are located on chargeable anomalous zones
  • Two of these Targets, AZ-1 and AZ-4, are located on known gold occurrences defined by historic drilling
  • Historic drilling was on the edge of these anomalies and failed to test the most prospective areas
  • Individual targets vary in length from 400 meter to 1,000 meters
  • Independent consultant has proposed 13 drill holes over these nine targets
  • Drilling to commence in the Fall of 2022

Julien Davy, President and CEO of Tarku Resources said: “This is an exciting time for Tarku and our shareholders, the scale and number of the targets generated by this work program at the Apollo Project has surpassed all our expectations. We will now refine the proposed drill holes ahead of commencing a maiden drill programme at the 3As Projects.”

The IP Survey Interpretation:

The 14.5-line km survey has been conducted by Simcoe Geoscience, using their Alpha IPTM system. Eight (8) lines were completed in 22 working days over the priority area of the Rivière Waswanipi Shear Zone, which Tarku interprets as being the east extension the regional Sunday Lake Fault, host of the Detour Lake Gold Mine or the Kirkland Lake Gold Mining Camp. The results of this Induced Polarization (IP) survey were combined with the existing IP and magnetic data to ensure the maximum amount of information could be used in the targeting process for our maiden drill program at the 3As Projects.

The resistivity data has defined a number of local structures and geological features, including a series of ENE-WSW dykes and NW-SE oriented faults. The chargeability data has defined nine areas of potential sulphide mineralization covering a total strike length of 5.35km, that appear to be associated with these the dykes and faults (Figure 1). These targets are near-surface, up to 400 meters below the surface (Figure 2).

The targets generated fall into two broad groups:

Strong IP responses associated with low/moderate resistivity values. The responses in this group are interpreted to be consistent with sulphide mineralization, usually offset from structures. The anomalies in this group are potentially associated with gold mineralization hosted by porphyritic and alkaline rocks at the edge of magnetic highs.

Strong IP responses associated with high/moderate resistivity values. The responses in this group are interpreted to be consistent with gold mineralization within shear zones and porphyritic dykes bearing anomalous gold values

Figure 2: Chargeability Anomalies at the Apollo Project with Proposed Drill Holes

Figure 2: Chargeability Anomalies at the Apollo Project with Proposed Drill Holes

About the 3As project

The Apollo Project is part of the 100%-owned by Tarku 3As project (Apollo, Atlas, Admiral) and is located adjacent and to the north of its Atlas Project. It consists of 69 claims (3,775 ha) centred on the Rivière Waswanipi ductile shear zone. This regional structure is characterized by the presence of alkaline rocks, polygenic conglomerates (Timiskaming type) and porphyry intrusions bearing anomalous gold values on the order of hundreds of parts per billion (GM 52712). This corridor, altered to carbonate-hematite-magnetite, contains the Rivière Waswanipi gold showing (2.36 g/t Au over 1 m; GM 51193) hosted in a porphyritic dyke and tuffs altered to pyrite-fuchsite, as well as several porphyry intrusions bearing anomalous gold values on the order of 0.1 to 0.9 g/t Au over 0.6 to 5 m (GM 52712).

Collectively, these metallotects present a favourable setting for orogenic gold mineralization associated with alkaline rocks and porphyry intrusions, which Tarku interprets as being similar to those of the regional Sunday Lake Fault, host of the Detour Lake mine or the Kirkland Lake Mining Camp. Tarku cautions that the mineralization at the Detour Lake mine or the Kirkland Lake mining Camp may not be indicative of the mineralization that may be identified on the Company’s Matagami projects and is used as a conceptual exploration model only.

private placementDownload PDF version   |   View all documents on Sedar

MONTREAL, April 14, 2022. Tarku Resources Ltd (TSX-V: TKU – FRA: 7TK – OTCQB: TRKUF) (the “Company” or “Tarku”) is pleased to announce that it has engaged GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (“GoldSpot”) (TSXV: SPOT) to assist the Company with target generation at Tarku’s Silver Strike Project, located in the Tombstone District, Arizona. GoldSpot has a large, internationally renowned team of geoscientists and data scientists that are focused on maximizing the chances of discovery using GoldSpot’s proprietary technology and technical expertise. GoldSpot is a leading technology services company that uses machine learning to transform the mineral discovery process. Work has already commenced, with GoldSpot’s Team undertaking magnetic/VLF and radiometric data survey.

Julien Davy, President and CEO of Tarku Resources said: “The GoldSpot Team have a proven track record and we are excited to be working with them on what we believe is one of the most promising projects in Arizona. The geophysical data acquired from this survey will be introductory work that will form the basis upon which, the Tarku and GoldSpot teams will use Artificial Intelligence targeting at Silver Strike and should set the Company up for an exciting year ahead.”

The Geophysical Survey:

GoldSpot’s geophysical services division utilizes the M-PASS system, a triaxial magnetic gradient/VLF platform, with a 2048-channel radiometric sensor that includes a high-resolution camera capable of producing four-band imagery. The combination of these systems onto a single helicopter allows for increased data captured through a single mobilization and flight creating a significantly cost-effective solution for multi-parameter data.

The MAG data of this survey will be first recent geophysical data over the area and has successfully been used to aid the in discovery of Carbonate Replacement Deposit (CRD), which is what Tarku is targeting at Silver Strike.

About the Silver Strike Project

Tarku's Silver Strike Project is located in Cochise County, Arizona, in the famous Tombstone Mining District, one of the earliest silver mining areas in the western United States where production started from numerous silver mines in 1877. Despite the attractive quantity of silver found in the district, low metal prices of the 1915's (below 1 USD/oz), a financial panic, the removal of the United States currency from the silver standard (since the 1900s), as well as the technical inability to deal with underground waters, caused this area to be overlooked.

The area is rich in silver and other base metals and yet has never been explored in modern times with a "big picture" view and utilizing a thorough systematic approach. More than 95% of historic production is from less than 200 meters from surface and is primarily from oxide ore minerals. Discovery potential is remains significant.

The 2021 drill program at Silver Strike has revealed in addition to silver, the presence of high-grades of gold, lead, and zinc suggesting similarities in terms of geological context to the nearby Hermosa Project, which in 2018 was purchased by South32 for US$1.8 billion.

In 2022, Tarku’s program will focus on project advancement, and new discoveries by conducting geophysical, geochemical and a minimum of 5,000-meter drilling focusing on surface to 400 meters depth along the Lucky Cuss and the Ground Hog Trend.

Highlights:

  • New agreement executed for 100% ownership of the Silver Strike Project, located in Tombstone, Arizona
  • Simplified agreement eliminates all minimum exploration and other cash commitments to vendors, as well as previous lengthy earn-in phase.

MONTREAL, February 25, 2022. Tarku Resources Ltd (TSX-V: TKU – FRA: 7TK – OTCQB: TRKUF) (the “Company” or “Tarku”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new agreement which provides the Company with immediate 100% ownership of the Silver Strike Project, in the Tombstone area, Arizona from EXLA Resources (OTC PINK: EXLA) (“EXLA”).

On February 1st, 2022, EXLA announced that it had entered into a binding agreement to purchase through a combination of cash and stock all the rights, interests and future benefits currently held by Mansfield Martin and associated parties in the Silver Strike Project.

Tarku and EXLA have agreed to terminate the original acquisition agreement and replace it with a new agreement granting Tarku immediate 100% ownership of the Silver Strike Project, as per the terms stated below.

Julien Davy, President, and CEO of Tarku, stated: “This is a transformational development for Tarku. This new agreement creates significant value for our shareholders by giving us an immediate 100% interest in the exciting Silver Strike Project. Tarku, will own and control more than 1,200 hectares of ground, in a famous historic mining district that has produced high-grade silver from surface to a maximum depth of 200m in the early-1900s and is known to have the geological potential for more silver, copper, gold, lead, zinc, and manganese mineralization.

This new agreement is a win-win solution, as EXLA now benefits from significant exposure to a consolidated 100% of the Silver Strike Project, as well as a focused exploration partner committed to its development. Tarku has lowered its commitments to acquire the project and will have better control on its exploration expenses. The consolidated ownership will also greatly facilitate capital raising initiatives going forward.”

Chris Lotito, President, and CEO of EXLA, stated: “The opportunity to partner with an exploration team of Tarku’s experience and pedigree is an exciting development for EXLA Resources. Consolidation of the ownership of the Silver Strike Project, ensures it can be advanced in the most streamlined method, and as a major shareholder of Tarku we will benefit from the value uplift of the project as it is advanced. We are also delighted to gain exposure to Tarku’s exciting Three A’s Project, located in Matagami Greenstone Belt.”

The Purchase Agreement

Dated February 24, 2022, EXLA and Tarku entered into an agreement to terminate the previous earn-in option agreement to acquire 75% of the project over 3 years, signed October 12, 2020, with the former vendor and simultaneously entered into a new purchase agreement, allowing Tarku to acquire 100% of the 140 mining titles in Tombstone that is now held by EXLA in return for consideration of:
