Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. – April 12, 2022) – Braveheart Resources Inc. (TSXV: BHT) (OTCQB:RIINF) (FSE:2ZR) ("Braveheart" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the receipt of an Early Exploration Permit from the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry (“MNDM”} for its Thierry Mine Property (“Thierry”) near Pickle Lake, Ontario.
The Company has begun preparations for an initial 5,000 metre drill program at Thierry beginning in the summer of 2022. Initial targets will be focused on the K1-1 near-surface open pit deposit. The K1-1 deposit is on the eastern extent of the property and approximately three kilometres to the east of the historical Thierry shaft. The planned drill program will be the first drilling since 2012 when the property was owned by Cadillac Ventures Inc.
On February 22, 2021, an independently prepared Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) by P&E Mining Consultants Inc. (“P&E”) of Brampton, Ontario, under the supervision of Eugene J. Puritch, P.Eng., FEC, CET., was filed on SEDAR. The PEA included a Mineral Resource Estimate for the Thierry underground including 8,815,000 tonnes in the Measured and Indicated classification at 1.66% Cu, 0.19% Ni and 0.13 g/t Pd and 14,922,000 tonnes in the Inferred classification at 1.64% Cu, 0.16% Ni and 0.21 g/t Pd. Additionally, the Mineral Resource Estimate included 53,614,000 tonnes in the Inferred classification at the K1-1 near-surface open pit deposit with 0.38% Cu, 0.10% Ni and 0.14 g/t Pd. Lesser amounts of platinum, gold and silver occur. The PEA recommends further diamond drilling from surface to expand the current K1-1 Mineral Resource and potentially increase the level of confidence of the Inferred Mineral Resource into either a Measured or Indicated Mineral Resource classification.
Ian Berzins, President and CEO commented “We are extremely pleased to receive our Early Exploration Permit from MNDM for the Thierry Mine Property. Our initial near-surface drill targets will be at the K1-1 deposit. Brian Newton, of Minroc Management Limited, who is intimately familiar with Thierry having supervised previous drill programs at K1-1, will be primarily responsible for the 2022 drill program”.
