Sherman Dahl, chief executive officer of SKRR, comments: “Management is very excited about the early drill results from the Leland Gold property of our 2021 drill program and are looking forward to maximizing our success with the remainder of the programs. It is extremely exciting exploring in Saskatchewan, the No. 1 mining jurisdiction in the world according to Mining Journal Intelligence World Risk Report 2020, where we are confident that the Trans Hudson Corridor has the potential to become one of the world’s prolific gold producing regions.”
The Company also completed a 9-hole drill program in 1,341m at its Irving-Leland property (the “Irving-Leland Property”), in the Trans Hudson Corridor, Saskatchewan. Variable widths of quartz veining and sulphide mineralization were intersected in all holes with visual results of the first 3 holes previously reported (see News Release February 10, 2021). Drill core is being logged and prepared for sampling and assay results are pending.
2021 Drill Program
The 2021 winter drill program focused on testing a 1 km strike length of the gold-mineralized shear system between the Irving Lake and Simon Lake showings on the west side of the Irving-Leland claims. This first drill program is testing this orogenic gold-bearing system. Targets were prioritized based on surface rock grab and trenching results, soil geochemistry and detailed airborne (drone) magnetic survey data.
The nine hole program targeted the Michelle, NW Irving and Irving showings located in the western part of the project area where historic work as identified numerous gold-bearing quartz veins with notable grades including the Irving-Leland Lake South Zone, which hosts grab samples ranging from trace values to up to 32.8 g/t Au and 8.6 g/t Au; and the Simon/Irving Lake Zone, which returned up to 60 g/t Au and 53 g/t Au from within a 2km x 600m shear zone centered along an open- ended contact between mafic volcanic and intrusive rocks. Field work during 2019 and 2020 identified gold mineralization grading up to 5.4 g/t Au over 0.65 m within 2.1 g/t Au over 3.22 m (channel sample) from the Irving trench and the discovery of 5 new gold-mineralized occurrences along the Simon-Irving trend grading between 113 ppb Au and 3.5g/t Au. All nine holes have intersected varying degrees of mineralization of quartz vein and associated sulphide mineralization (pyrite, pyrrhotite, and locally chalcopyrite), in widths from cm to up to 1m at depth beneath the surface showings.

About the Irving-Leland Property
SKRR’s Irving /Leland Project is a large land package covering more than 23,500 hectares strategically located within 10km of SRR Mining’s very successful Seabee Gold Mine operation, Saskatchewan’s largest orogenic gold deposit within the Trans Hudson Corridor. The Company owns 100% of the Irving claims and under the terms of the option agreement with Taiga Gold Corp. (“Taiga”), SKRR may earn up to a 75% interest in the Leland claims.
