Frontline Receives Exploration Permit for Crooked Pine Lake Property


Toronto, Ontario - TheNewswire - August 12, 2021 – Frontline Gold Corporation (TSXV:FGC) (“Frontline” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has been issued a mineral exploration permit by the Ontario Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines (“MENDM”) for its Crooked Pine Lake gold property (the “Property”) located 35 km east of Atikokan, Ontario.


The Crooked Pine Property Permit has been issued to Frontline for an initial three (3)-year term. This permit allows Frontline to undertake various surface exploration activities on the property including potential trenching on up to 17 identified locations and over 65 diamond drilling hole locations.  The Company will consider a Fall 2021 trenching program followed by a Phase 1 drill program on the Crooked Pine property.  The programs will be designed to follow-up on the exploration work conducted on the Property since July 2020 when Frontline first acquired the property.

The limited soil sampling program announced (see press release August 3, 2021) was successful in extending gold-bearing trends where grab samples were reported up to 19.2 g/t Au from 2020 summer sampling (press release August 17, 2020), up to 7.03 g/t Au from 2020 fall sampling (press release Feb 11, 2021) and 3.06 g/t Au from spring 2021 sampling programs (see press release July 20, 2021).

The highlighted results reflect the gold-bearing shear zones in the southern mafic volcanic belt along the Pothole Lake Deformation Zone. These shear zones contain quartz veining in excess of 1m, iron carbonate alteration, potassic alteration and variable contents of pyrite, chalcopyrite and arsenopyrite. The soil sample results also reflect that the northeast trending X656 Shear Zone can be traced in areas of low outcrop exposure. The X656 Shear Zone is one of many northeast trending gold-bearing structures in the Atikokan region that are important hosts for gold mineralization.


Crooked Pine Gold Project Highlights


The Property is located within the Marmion Subprovince of northwestern Ontario, home to the Agnico Eagle Hammond Reef gold deposit which hosts 4.5M oz. of gold in the Measured and Indicated category. The Hammond Reef gold deposit is located on the Hammond Reef Shear Zone, a northeast trending deformation corridor hosted within the granitoid suite of the Marmion batholith. Of significance within the Marmion batholith are multiple, parallel, northeast-trending gold-bearing shear zones that contain historic gold mines and occurrences (Figure 1). These northeast trending shear zones are considered splays off of the Quetico Fault, a subprovince boundary fault separating the Marmion and Quetico subprovinces.

"After acquisition of the Pothole Claims earlier in the year, our field crew set out with boots on the ground in May to investigate historical reports of gold mineralization along the Pothole Lake Deformation Zone. Our initial rock sampling program confirmed this with promising results. It now appears that Frontline has another effective exploration tool to outline gold-bearing trends in those areas of low outcrop exposure along strike from the 2020 and 2021 rock sampling programs. We can now utilize the results for continued exploration programs targeted at those areas of high merit. The Crooked Pine Lake Project continues to be a high-quality asset of Frontline”, said Frontline’s President and CEO Walter Henry.
