- Hole SB-2021-075 increases the total intercepts on the 77 Vein to 11.
- The 77 Vein was the most productive and high grade vein on the Project, historically averaging 17.7g/t Au and was mined to a depth of 1.9 kilometres.
- The 52 Vein was intersected between 456.0 and 457.20 metres highlighted by 13.86 g/t Au over 1.20 metres.
- Hole SB-2021-075 increases the total intercepts on the 52 Vein to 11.
- The 52 Vein Splay was intersected between 474.55 and 475.55 metres, highlighted by 12.87 g/t Au over 1.0 metre.
- Two shallow zones of low grade bulk-tonnage were defined, returning 0.56 g/t Au over 51.5 metres (236.40 and 287.90 metres depth) and 0.43 g/t Au over 32.2 metres (325.30 and 357.50 metres depth).
Terry Harbort, President and CEO of Talisker commented, “Hole 075 demonstrates the excellent continuity of the 77 Vein increasing the strike to 1,100 metres from historic workings.”
Six diamond drills and 1 RC drill are currently operating at the Bralorne Gold Project. A total of 77,150 metres consisting of 148 holes of a planned and fully funded 100,000 metre program has been drilled at the Project this year with a total of 97,464 metres (179 holes) since Talisker initiated drilling in February 2020. There are 54 holes consisting of 17,366 samples are currently at the assay laboratory and are expected to be received by the Company shortly.
SB-2021-075 Hole Description
- Complete results have been received for this hole.
- Located in the Bralorne East block and centrally located within the granitic intrusive.
- Intersected granitic intrusive from surface to 356 metres followed by diorite to 831 metres, then granitic intrusive to 925 metres followed by sheared ultramafic rocks within the Cadwallader fault to completion at 961.9 metres.
- Bulk mineralization related to the 51BFW Vein intersected from 236.40 to 287.90 metres.
- Bulk mineralization related to newly discovered veins in the hanging wall of the 77 Vein from 325.30 to 357.50 metres.
- 77 Vein intersected from 373.75 to 375 metres with visible gold.
- 52 Vein intersected from 456.0 to 457.20 metres with visible gold.
- 52 Vein Splay intersected from 474.55 to 475.55 metres with visible gold.
- Bulk mineralization related to the 222 Vein intersected from 616.75 to 630.45 metres with visible gold.
- Major vein structures intersected are considered classic Bralorne crack-seal quartz-carbonate veins with densely banded sulphide septae hosting fine-grained arsenopyrite and pyrite mineralization with strong silica-sericite alteration halos.
- Zones of bulk mineralization are hosted in both the granitic intrusive and diorite as zones of increased veinlet density associated with strong silica-sericite alteration and disseminated pyrite-arsenopyrite mineralization.

Sample Preparation and QAQC
Drill core at the Bralorne project is drilled in HQ to NQ size ranges (63.5mm and 47.6mm respectively). Drill core samples are minimum 50 cm and maximum 160 cm long along the core axis. Samples are focused on an interval of interest such as a vein or zone of mineralization. Shoulder samples bracket the interval of interest such that a total sampled core length of not less than 3m both above and below the interval of interest must be assigned. Sample QAQC measures of unmarked certified reference materials (CRMs), blanks, and duplicates are inserted into the sample sequence and make up 9% of the samples submitted to the lab for holes reported in this release. Sample preparation and analyses is carried out by ALS Global in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and SGS Canada in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. Drill core sample preparation includes drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60°C, fine crushing of the sample to at least 70% passing less than 2 mm, sample splitting using a riffle splitter, and pulverizing a 250 g split to at least 85% passing 75 microns (ALS code PREP-31 / SGS code PRP89). Gold in diamond drill core is analysed by fire assay and atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) of a 50g sample (ALS code Au-AA26 / SGS code GO_FAA50V10), while multi-element chemistry is analysed by 4- Acid digestion of a
0.25 g sample split with detection by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) for 48 elements (Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Cu, Fe, Ga, Ge, Hf, In, K, La, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Nb, Ni, P, Pb, Rb, Re, S, Sb, Sc, Se, Sn, Sr, Ta, Te, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Y, Zn, Zr). Gold assay technique (ALS code Au-AA26 / SGS code FAA50V10) has an upper detection limit of 100 ppm. Any sample that produces an over-limit gold value via the gold assay technique is sent for gravimetric finish (ALS method Au-GRA22 / SGS method GO_FAG50V) which has an upper detection limit of 1,000 ppm Au. Samples where visible gold was observed are sent directly to screen metallics analysis and all samples that fire assay above 1 ppm Au are re-analysed with method (ALS code Au-SCR24 / SGS code – 6 – GO_FAS50M) which employs a 1kg pulp screened to 100 microns with assay of the entire oversize fraction and duplicate 50g assays on the undersize fraction. Where possible all samples initially sent to screen metallics processing will also be re-run through the fire assay with gravimetric finish provided there is enough material left for further processing.
