Brigadier Commences Diamond Drilling Program at Gold-Silver Picachos Property, With First Phase Focusing on Past Producing San Agustín High Grade Mine

Vancouver, British Columbia – September 28, 2020 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG, FSE: B7LM) is pleased to announce the first ever diamond drill program is underway at the Company’s recently acquired 3,954 hectare Picachos Gold-Silver Property (“Picachos”), centered over the historic “Viva Zapata” National Mineral Reserve, Sinaloa, Mexico. The drill program is planned for a minimum 5000 metres (m) in approximately 40 holes targeting four high-grade gold-silver veins.

Drill Targets:

  • San Agustín mine: underground channel sampling by prior operator returned average grade of 81.22 grams per ton (g/t) gold (Au) and 73.36 g/t silver (Ag) across 1.2 m (Thunderbird Projects news release dated 18 June 1997). Values of 185 g/t Au were cut across the bottom of a production shaft (sample HBM-73175).
  • Mochomos vein: historic rock chip-channel sample 26409 yielded a result of 18.5 g/t Au and 570 g/t Ag across approximately 0.5 m.   
  • Los Tejones vein with values of 28.6 g/t Au, and 114 g/t Ag across approximately a meter (historic rock chip-channel sample 17873).
  • Fermin vein with values of 268 ppm Ag and 0.3 g/t Au across 1 m.

Ranjeet Sundher, CEO, remarks “Brigadier’s multi-talented team has raised $4.2 million and advanced the Picachos property from acquisition to drilling in a relatively short period of time and we look forward to keeping our shareholders updated as drill assay results are received. We are fortunate that Brigadier’s core leadership now includes Michelle Robinson who together with her team, residing in Sinaloa, are intimately familiar with Picachos, the local community, and how to shape a sustainable and beneficial presence in the region.”

The Company’s focus is proving the depth, strike length and continuity of the high-grade gold-silver veins and understanding the source of the vein hosted mineralization and its potential relationship to copper porphyry mineralization identified on the property. The center of the 2020 exploration campaign will be the past-producing San Agustín Mine which has exploited one of the ore chutes of the major east-northeasterly trending Cocolmeca Vein System (introduced in Company press-release dated 6 July 2020).  In detail, the Cocolmeca Vein system is comprised of several sub-parallel veins over a 1.5 kilometre (km) wide zone marked in blue on the map, below.  San Agustín is the best understood of these veins, mainly because it has been historically exposed underground by approximately 670 line-metres of tunnels, stopes and shafts.  Geologically, it appears to be disrupted by the NW trending Genardo Fault. On the northeast side of the fault, the Tejones veins might correlate to San Agustín.  Collectively, this first round of drilling is designed to test approximately 1 km of vein strike between the past-producing San Agustín Mine and the Tejones Prospects.

Phase 1 is anticipated to total 5170 m of PQ/HQ diamond drilling in 41 drill holes as well as approximately 3 line-kilometres of trenching across several historic sample sites to systematically sample the anomalies identified by the historic work and formalize the drill targets. Most holes are planned at San Agustín and Los Tejones, with a few at Mochomos and other prospects. The drill holes will range from 90 m to 300 m in length.

Picachos is comprised of four mining concessions covering an area of 3,954 hectares and is situated in the municipality of El Rosario, in the southeastern region of Sinaloa state, Mexico. Geographically, Picachos overlaps part of the western foothills of the Sierra Madre Occidental (SMO). Picachos can be accessed from Mazatlán by state highway and paved road to the town of Cacalotán, and then by country road into the Property. Total driving distance is approximately 111 road-kilometres over a period of four hours. Mine workings are accessed by approximately 20 kms of roads internal to the Property.

The Company has not undertaken any independent investigation of the historical information contained in this press release nor has it independently analyzed the results of the previous exploration work in order to verify the accuracy of the information. The Company believes that the historical results and other information contained in this press release are relevant to continuing exploration on the Property.

National Instrument 43-101 Disclosure

The technical content of this new release has been reviewed and approved by Ms. Michelle Robinson, MASc., P.Eng., and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Historical underground and surface rock chip-channel samples were cut across oriented structures using a hammer and chisel. Approximately 5 kg of material was collected onto a drop-bag, then rolled and quartered.  Approximately 2 kg of roughly homogenized rock chips were collected in a double-plastic bag with the numbered tag facing outwards between the bags. Sample HBM-73175 was collected from a homogenous pile of mine muck taken from the bottom of JJV Slot in the San Agustin mine at the 601 m elevation by a geologist working for Hudbay Minerals in 2013. 

The samples were sent either to Acme’s preparation laboratory in Guadalajara, Jalisco, or to SGS Laboratories in Durango.  At either lab, the, the samples were crushed and split. A one kg split of each sample was pulverized to -200 mesh (R200-1000) For Acme, prepared pulps were sent to the North Vancouver lab for analysis using ICP-MS methods (code 1DX), whole-rock analyses (code 4A-4B) and fire assay methods using a gravimetric finish (code Group 6Gr).  For SGS, the samples were analyzed in Durango using ICP methods for base metals and silver, and fire assays with either an AA or gravimetric finish.  A few rocks marked * were analyzed using a Niton portable XRF analyzer to scan homogenized sample pulp.  It is the QP’s opinion that the geochemical results in Table 1are reliable prospecting information.

Brigadier Adds to Inventory of Under-explored High Potential Gold-Silver Vein Targets at Picachos

Vancouver, British Columbia – September 14, 2020 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG, FSE: B7LM) is pleased to announce sampling results from Garabato and El Pino, two major vein systems in the northeastern part of the Picachos gold-silver Property, Sinaloa, Mexico (the “Picachos Property”).

The Picachos Property has never been diamond drill tested and boasts over 160 historic workings and mines, which are accessible by more than 20 km of roads internal to the property.

Recent and ongoing bonanza grade discoveries produced by neighbouring explorers to the north (Vizsla Resources) and south (GR Silver Mining) underscore the untapped potential of this particular region of Sierra Madre Occidental epithermal belt.

Ranjeet Sundher, President and CEO, remarks “Significant values include 160 g/t silver across 7 m at Garabato, and 21.3 g/t Au across 1 meter at El Pino.  Further work including trenching and soil sampling followed by drilling is clearly warranted.”

Mr. Sundher continues “Brigadier is preparing to initiate a maiden 5,000 metre drill program targeting the high grade historic San Agustin mine and surrounding prospects (see press release dated September 9, 2020) in order to better understand the depth, strike length and continuity of the veins. In addition to the high-grade San Agustin mine, the Picachos Property offers exceptional exploration potential, with over 160 historic mines and workings throughout the property.”

Garabato

The Garabato prospects are in headwaters of the Arroyo La Verdosa, about 1.7 kilometers west of El Pino in the northeastern part of the Picachos Property. This early exploration is limited to a few geological traverses, sparse rock chip-channel samples and a widely spaced soil geochemical grid (100 m * 100 m).  Mineralization is mainly in deeply oxidized quartz-sulfide veins with notable concentrations of silver, gold and sometimes copper.  Veins are oriented similarly to bedding, and some of the mineralization might be strata-bound on favorable bedding planes.  Highlights from in-situ rock chip-channel samples are summarized in Table 1 (locations 26 to 29).  The Garabato veins are co-incident with a polymetallic soil geochemical anomaly about 20 Ha in area.  Maximum values of 36 ppm silver, 366 ppm copper, 1049 ppm lead and 1184 ppm Zn were determined for soil samples in the Garabato anomaly area.

El Pino  

Historic workings at El Pino expose four quartz-sulfide veins hosted mainly in glassy pyroclastic rocks that probably correlate with the Socavon Ignimbrite of the Tarahumara Formation as defined by Montoya-Lopera et al. (2019).  Mineralization consists mainly of galena with lesser sphalerite and copper sulfides such as chalcocite, bornite and chalcopyrite. Iron sulfides are mainly pyrrhotite and pyrite.  Vein selvedges are altered to celadonite, an iron-rich muscovite.  On surface, mineralization is oxidized to copper and lead sulfates such as linarite, brochantite and anglesite.  Gold occurs in electrum and is apparent in crushed and panned samples.  El Pino West is the largest vein in this group and has been traced out on surface between sample sites 31 and 33 for 650 m over an elevation range of 300 m between 552 meters and 852 meters elevation. Highlights from in-situ rock chip-channel samples are summarized in Table 1 (locations 30 to 36).

El Pino is located about 3 km upstream of SGM sample site F13A48_003 in the Arroyo La Verdosa.  This samples a drainage basin 787 Ha in size with anomalous precious metal values of 1.9 ppm Ag and 21 ppb Au, as well as anomalous base metal values of 49 ppm copper, 83 ppm lead and 141 ppm Zn. Detailed sampling of smaller basins by the Company shows that the source of this anomaly is El Pino.  Specifically, Company stream sediment samples from 3 contiguous drainage basins that overlap 76 Ha surrounding the El Pino veins contain markedly anomalous gold and lead concentrations, as well as significant concentrations of other metals (Table 2 and Figure 2).  About 1 kilometer downstream of Garabato, the SGM sampled 731 ppb Au, 89 ppm Cu, 3.2 ppm Mo, 76 ppm Pb and 132 ppm Zn in sample F13A47_016, a basin 362 Ha in size.  All Company samples in this basin were taken upstream of Garabato, and it was not detected in Company stream sediment data.

National Instrument 43-101 Disclosure

The technical content of this new release has been reviewed and approved by Ms. Michelle Robinson, MASc., P.Eng., and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Underground and surface rock chip-channel samples were cut across oriented structures using a hammer and chisel. Approximately 5 kg of material was collected onto a drop-bag, then rolled and quartered.  From this, roughly 2 kg of roughly homogenized rock chips were collected in a double-plastic bag with the numbered tag facing outwards between the bags. 

Rock samples were sent either to Acme’s preparation laboratory in Guadalajara, Jalisco, or to SGS Laboratories in Durango.  At either lab, the, the samples were crushed and split. A one kg split of each sample was pulverized to -200 mesh. For Acme, prepared pulps were sent to the North Vancouver lab for analysis using ICP-MS methods (code 1DX) and fire assay methods using a gravimetric finish (code Group 6Gr).  For SGS, the samples were analyzed in Durango using ICP methods for base metals and silver, and fire assays with either an AA or gravimetric finish.  It is Ms. Robinson’s opinion that the geochemical results in Table 1 are reliable.

Soil samples from Garabato were collected by cleaning leaf litter and organics off the sample site, then digging 10 centimeters into mineral soil with a shovel.  The sample was taken by loosening the earth using a pointed wooden stake driven into the exposed site with a hammer to loosen up the soil without the use of metal tools. About 0.5 kg of soil was collected in a numbered bag, and the location was recorded in UTM co-ordinates, WGS84 datum on a tablet computer.  The samples were scanned for element concentrations with a Niton benchtop XRF at the office in Mazatlán, Sinaloa.  It is Ms. Robinson’s opinion that the soil sample anomaly is accurately located on the maps, and that the data are reliable.     

Regional geochemical samples F13A48_03 and F13A47_16 were collected from sediments deposited in active stream channels by personnel working for the Servicio Geologico Mexicano (SGM) using a plastic scoop then sieving the sediment to -80 mesh into a numbered sample envelope.  Sample locations were recorded with a hand-held GPS.  The samples were sent to Government laboratories in either Chihuahua or Oaxaca where a 1-gram portion of the pulp was dissolved in aqua regia and analyzed for 32 elements using ICP methods. Gold was analyzed using fire-assay methods with an AA finish.  Detection limits (DL) for gold are 1 ppb.  Silver DL is 0.8 ppm, molybdenum DL is 0.9 ppm, lead, zinc, and copper DL is 2 ppm. It is the author’s opinion that the analytical data of the SGM is of good quality, but that gold concentrations can be under-estimated due to sampling surficial stream sediments with a plastic scoop when more representative results can be better obtained by digging into natural sediment traps using heavy tools.  Further, use of the -80-mesh fraction might result in a larger nugget effect than using a finer fraction (say -200 mesh). 

Company stream sediment samples were collected by digging into several nearby sediment traps in active channels.  Coarse sand and gravel from each microsite was screened to less than 2 mm.  About 1 kilogram of sediment was collected in a numbered bag, then sent to Acme’s preparation laboratory in Guadalajara, Jalisco.  There, the samples were screened to -80 mesh. Prepared pulps were shipped to North Vancouver for ICP-MS analysis of gold and base metals (code 1DX).

Brigadier Provides Update on Exploration Programs Planned for Picachos and Killala Lake Properties

Vancouver, British Columbia – September 9, 2020 – Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company” or “Brigadier”) (TSXV: BRG, FSE: B7LM) is pleased to provide the following update from its President and CEO, Ranjeet Sundher.

“Dear shareholders, thank you for your continued support as the Company prepares to undertake a first-ever drill program on our Picachos gold-silver property in Sinaloa State, Mexico and initiate exploration of the Killala Lake South property in Ontario.

In just a little over two months Brigadier has assembled a strong leadership group, identified, conducted due diligence on, and acquired two projects, closed financings for gross $4.2 million and significantly enhanced shareholder value.

We augmented our Board of Directors with the addition of industry veteran Mr. Garry Clark, as well as added Mr. Geoffrey Fielding as a Special Advisor to the Board of Directors. Mr. Clark and Mr. Fielding are joining Mr. Oscar Mendoza as the Company’s Special Advisor, Mexico and Ms. Michelle Robinson as the Company’s Geologist, to support Brigadier’s plan in transitioning from exploration, to development of high grade gold and silver projects in Mexico.

The Picachos property, an approximate two-hour drive from Mazatlán, has all permits in place and a recently renewed surface access agreement with the local community.  The project has never been diamond drill tested and boasts over 160 historic workings and mines, which are accessible by more than 20 km of roads internal to the property.

Recent and ongoing bonanza grade discoveries produced by neighbouring explorers to the north (Vizsla Resources) and south (GR Silver Mining) underscore the untapped potential of this particular region of Sierra Madre Occidental epithermal belt.

Brigadier intends to approach Picachos with a strategy similar to our neighbours. We are preparing a fully financed, 5,000 meter drill program in approximately 40 holes, targeting four high-grade gold-silver veins found within the Colomeca Vein system.

The Cocolmeca Vein system is comprised of several sub-parallel veins over a 1.5 kilometer wide zone. San Agustin is the best understood of these veins, mainly because it has been historically exposed underground by approximately 670 line meters of tunnels, stopes and shafts. Geologically, it appears to be disrupted by the NW trending Genardo Fault. On the northeast side of the fault, the Tejones veins might correlate to San Agustin. Collectively, this first round of drilling is designed to test approximately 1 kilometer of vein strike between the past-producing San Agustin Mine and the Tejones Prospects

Additionally, the Company is planning approximately 3 line kilometers of trenching across several historic sample sites to systematically sample the anomalies identified by the historic work and formalize the drill targets.

Brigadier’s focus is proving: 

  1. the potential for multiple high-grade gold-silver veins
  2. the depth, strike length and continuity of the veins
  3. understanding the source of the vein hosted mineralization and its potential relationship to copper porphyry mineralization identified on the property

Priority targets include the historic San Agustin mine (values of up to 185 g/t Au were cut across the bottom of a production shaft), the Mochomos vein where historic rock chip sample 26409 yielded 18.5 g/t Au and 570 g/t Ag across approximately 0.5 m;  Los Tejones vein with values of 28.6 g/t Au, and 114 g/t Ag across approximately a meter (historic rock chip-channel sample 17873) and the Fermin vein with values of 268 ppm Ag and 0.3 g/t Au across 1 m (see press release dated August 13, 2020).

The Company has every confidence in Ms. Robinson’s leadership with her team on site, who are intimately familiar with Picachos, having assembled and worked on the project for the past 10 years.

Brigadier intends to have drills turning by the third week of September and look forward to providing updates as results become available.”

Brigadier also holds an option to acquire 100% of the Killala Lake South diamond property located in the Thunder Bay, Ontario mining district (see press releases dated May 11, 2020 and June 24, 2020). The Company is planning to initiate exploration in Q1-2021 and will provide updates in due course.

National Instrument 43-101 Disclosure

The technical content of this new release has been reviewed and approved by Ms. Michelle Robinson, MASc., P.Eng., and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Underground and surface rock chip-channel samples were cut across oriented structures using a hammer and chisel. Approximately 5 kg of material was collected onto a drop-bag, then rolled and quartered.  From this, roughly 2 kg of roughly homogenized rock chips were collected in a double-plastic bag with the numbered tag facing outwards between the bags. 

Rock samples were sent either to Acme’s preparation laboratory in Guadalajara, Jalisco, or to SGS Laboratories in Durango.  At either lab, the, the samples were crushed and split. A one kg split of each sample was pulverized to -200 mesh. For Acme, prepared pulps were sent to the North Vancouver lab for multi-element analysis using ICP-MS methods (code 1DX) and fire assay methods for gold values over 10,000 ppb using a gravimetric finish (code Group 6Gr).  For SGS, the samples were analyzed in Durango using multi-element ICP methods for base metals and silver, and fire assays for gold with either an AA or gravimetric finish.  It is the Qualified Person’s opinion that the geochemical results are reliable.
