Fancamp Announces Strategic Acquisition Of Riley Brook Claims In New Brunswick Prospective Copper-Gold Region


(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fancamp Exploration Ltd. (“ Fancamp ” or the“ Corporation ”) (TSX Venture Exchange: FNC ) is pleased to announce the recent Acquisition by claim staking of 1,404 claim units in New Brunswick, the Riley Brook property, located approximately 25 kilometers south of Puma Exploration's Williams Brook Project. Riley Brook is located within the highly prospective Appalachian geological province, the location of several recent major Gold discoveries such as New Found Gold's Queensway Project. Fancamp's staking of the Riley Brook property, as part of its grassroots generative program, is highly strategic given its jurisdiction within a new prospective area for both copper and gold mineralization over a large area with underexplored potential for gold mineralization associated with an underlying geology of Devonian volcano-sedimentary stack belonging to the Wapske Formation (refer to ).

The Riley Brook property is located in a recognized mining-friendly jurisdiction with a sizeable land package of approximately 309 km2 situated between the Rocky Brook Millstream Fault and Woodstock-Catamaran Fault. Both are major orogenic structures in the Appalachian region, potentially serving as significant controls for gold deposition and other types of mineralization. Such structures are key to large orogenic gold deposits in the Appalachian, exemplified by New Found Gold's Queensway Project.

François Auclair, Vice President Exploration of Fancamp Exploration comments,“With this new addition, Fancamp has established a notable land position in one of the most attractive mining jurisdictions in Canada, demonstrating the Corporation's expertise in adeptly delineating what could transform into a future flagship project. This property has seen little modern exploration and will allow Fancamp's technical team to conduct systematic exploration, within a highly prospective mineralized trend which has demonstrated significant Cu-Au mineralization.”

A compilation of historical work indicates the presence of zinc, lead and/or silver of the intermediate sulfidation type throughout the property in areas such as Mable Brook, Stewart Peaks South and Blue Mountain Lake (refer to ). Alteration characteristic of epithermal type mineralization, such as silicification, kaolinization, sericitization, potassic alteration, hematization and pyritization have been recognized in historical drilling performed over the property1. These key features identified during the compilation of historical work programs also highlight the strong potential for porphyry – epithermal type mineralization on Riley Brook.

Fancamp will initiate an exploration program this year which will aim to better understand the geology and mineralization of the area, as well as define the extent of potential copper-gold mineralization. The Corporation has initiated a soil sampling program, and further work will include rock sampling, stripping and channel sampling on copper-gold mineralized horizons. The soil sampling program will cover three large zones in an area where historical till and stream gold anomalies were delineated by regional reconnaissance work programs from the New Brunswick Government. The Corporation also intends to carry out a large prospecting program to prioritize exploration work in the vicinity of the most favorable gold-copper zones.

Fancamp is also pleased to announce that it has received the New Brunswick Junior Mining Assistance Program Grant of CAD $50,000 for 2024. The funds will be applied towards a soil assay and prospecting program at Riley Brook. The Corporation thanks the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development for this inaugural support.
