Pelangio Exploration Drilling –

TORONTO, ON/ACCESSWIRE/February 9, 2022/Pelangio Exploration Inc. (TSXV:PX, Financial);(OTC PINK:PGXPF) (“Pelangio” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that the diamond drilling program at its Gowan polymetallic project is underway. The project is well located within the Kidd-Munro Assemblage, the same environment that hosts the Kidd Creek Mine, just 16 kilometers northwest of the Gowan Project. The drill program will test several priority geophysical targets for nickel-copper sulphides as well as volcanogenic copper-zinc massive sulphide “VMS” mineralization. Drill targets in the northern portion of the property are associated with known historical base metal drill intersections in a VMS environment.

Ingrid Hibbard, President and CEO, said, “It’s always exciting to start a drilling program. Each exploration program conducted at Gowan to date has advanced the project and generated attractive targets. Additionally, during the preparation of the drill program, six additional base metal targets were identified. through the use of Maxwell Plate modelling, adding to the excitement. This highly promising base metals project recently attracted an option partner who can earn up to 50% interest for $2 million on two years (see press release dated January 20, 2022), which will ensure the continuation of significant exploration and drilling work at Gowan.

Gowan Real Estate Program Discussion: (See Figures 1, 2, 3)

The fall 2021 ground-based induced polarization (IP) follow-up survey on the Gowan property highlighted two IP anomalies. In the northeast part of the property, a convincing IP anomaly (IP Anomaly 1) has been identified. The IP 1 Anomaly is associated with historic copper mineralization in a package of felsic volcanic rocks or in a typical VMS environment. The second anomaly (IP Anomaly 2) confirmed the presence of a nickel-copper-like prospect coinciding with an airborne electromagnetic (EM) or VTEM target associated with a previously identified strong magnetic response. These targets are the focus of the drill program currently underway.

Pelangio recently commissioned Maxwell Plate modeling of airborne VTEM survey data to examine it in more detail to detect more subtle anomalies. This work has defined six new targets of interest (see Fig.1 AF targets). One of the “B” targets is spatially associated with known copper occurrences in the area of ​​the PP 1 anomaly where drilling is currently underway. The other five targets are new areas of focus; targets A, C and F are close to established IP targets while targets E and D represent new areas of interest on the property. These targets will be subject to further analysis to establish final drill hole locations for subsequent drilling.

VMS Target – IP Anomaly 1

This IP target and associated historical copper intersections hosted in felsic volcanics represent a high priority copper-zinc VMS target. The anomaly strikes southeast about 400 meters.

Two historic holes designated holes 2 and 77-1 were drilled parallel to the outer edge of the IP anomaly and intersected significant base metal mineralization within a felsic volcanic package. Hole 2 reversed 10.97 meters of 0.32% copper and 11.99 g/t silver including a premium interception of 3.81 meters grading 0.66% copper and 10.62 g/t silver. Hole 77-1 skimmed the southern end of the anomaly (see Fig.3) and returned an anomalous section grading 0.18% copper and 2.24 g/t silver over 5.79 meters with a premium section grading 0.45% copper and 4.8 g/t silver over 1.67 metres.

Nickel-Copper Prospect – IP Anomaly Coinciding with VTEM – IP 2 anomaly

The recently completed IP survey also highlighted a large 400 meter wide IP anomaly coinciding with the airborne VTEM anomaly and represents a high priority nickel-copper type prospect.

The IP anomaly was detected on all three survey lines cut through the airborne VTEM anomaly, and extends east to west for a minimum of 270 meters and is open to the east and west. Limited proximal historic drilling on the periphery of the IP anomaly and associated magnetic data suggest that the IP anomaly is hosted in ultramafic rocks.

WEST DOME PROJECT, Timmins, Ontario

Additionally, the company is pleased to announce that it has completed 1,446.5 meters of drilling in two holes on its Dome West project, located 800 meters west of Newmont’s Dome Mine in Timmins, Ontario. , in December 2021. All drill core has been completed and samples have been submitted to the laboratory. for analysis. The Company is still awaiting the assay results and they will be released in full as soon as they are received.


The company will also participate in the virtual conference GCFF 2022 – Precious Metals Day. This is a free online event to be held on Thursday, February 10, 2022. Featuring some of the most promising mining exploration companies in the market today, the event is expecting over 400 live English-speaking attendees and Chinese.

About Pelangio

Pelangio acquires and explores world-class gold belt land packages in Ghana, West Africa and Canada. In Ghana, the Company is exploring its two 100% owned camp-sized properties: the 100 km2 Manfo property, the site of seven near-surface gold discoveries, and the 284 km2 Obuasi property, located 4 km onshore and adjacent to AngloGold Ashanti’s prolific high-grade Obuasi mine, as well as the newly optioned Dankran property located adjacent to its Obuasi property. In Canada, the Company is currently focusing in Ontario on its Gowan property, located 16 km from the Kidd Creek mine in Timmins, and its Dome West property, located approximately 800 meters from the Dome mine in Timmins.
