TORONTO, Oct. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Troilus Gold Corp. (TSX: TLG) (OTCQB: CHXMF) (“Troilus” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the latest results from its summer 2020 regional exploration program on its 100%-owned Troilus Project, located within the Frôtet-Evans Greenstone Belt of northern Quebec. The program focused on identifying high priority targets within the extensive land package Troilus acquired and staked earlier in the year (the “Troilus-Frôtet Property”) (see press releases dated April 28, 2020 and July 21, 2020). Initial results collected 28 km southwest of the recently announced Beyan Gold Zone Discovery (see press release dated September 30, 2020), have outlined another new zone of mineralization: the Goldfield Boulder Zone (“Goldfield”). Gold bearing boulders and outcrop can be traced and defined in situ over a minimum strike length of 4 km. Goldfield is accessible from the Route du Nord highway.

Highlights from the New Goldfield Zone:

  • Grab samples returned up to 26.2 g/t gold and 27.8 g/t silver in outcrop

  • Other sample highlights include: 6.51 g/t Au, 5.96 g/t Au, 4.31 g/t Au; 14.0 g/t Ag, 8.6 g/t Ag (see full results in Table 1)

  • Many geological characteristics linking Goldfield to the main mineralized zones over 36 km away

“The discovery of the Goldfield Zone this summer marks an exciting moment for Troilus,” said Justin Reid, CEO of Troilus. “Earlier this year we had the opportunity to significantly increase our land holdings through a combination of acquisition and staking. The addition of the Troilus-Frôtet Property increased our land holdings from 16,000 hectares to over 107,000 hectares. Our evolving geologic model, developed over the last couple of years through drilling and exploration around the main ore bodies of Z87, the J Zones and more recently the Southwest Zone, led us to believe that the region could have district scale potential and we believed that expanding our claim area had the potential to add significant value for shareholders via discovery. The Goldfield Zone, located on the western side of the Troilus-Frôtet Property, marks the furthest afield exploration conducted to date. We are thrilled to report newly discovered, near-surface gold occurrences with samples ranging up to 26.2 g/t gold and 27.8 g/t silver, 36 km from the main mineralized zones at the Troilus property. The Goldfield Zone results, combined with the recent Beyan Zone results, suggest that gold mineralization within the Frôtet-Evans Greenstone Belt is prolific and not constrained geographically as historically thought. We await further results from locations across the Troilus-Frotêt Property collected during the summer and believe that these showings could just be the beginning of what the district could host.”

During this initial bedrock mapping and boulder tracing, the Troilus Geological team located several mineralized boulders on the main Tortigny block assaying up to 26 g/t Au
