Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSXV: RPX, OTCQB: RDEXF)  has released new results from its 2022 Phase 1 exploration program at the Sadowski zone at its 100%-owned Wawa Gold project in the Michipicoten Greenstone Belt of Ontario.

The exploration results continue to support the expansion of current resources and the potential for additional centres of mineralization within the project.

Highlights the 2022 drilling in the up-dip extension of the Sadowski zone include: 52.12 g/t gold over 2.29 metres in SD-21-350 including 162.52 g/t gold over 0.30 metres and 145.20 g/t gold over 0.41 metres and 492 g/t silver over 0.90 metres in SD-21-309.

There were additional high-grade intersections in the down plunge extension of the Surluga deposit to the North, with the primary mineralization zone remaining open at depth and along strike. a highlight intercept here includes 8.44 g/t gold over 5.71 metres.

These results, the company said, confirm the exploration strategy and targeting approach of surface mapping and orientated core measurements to refine targets.

“The discovery of higher-grade gold intersections down plunge of the Surluga resource and the Sadowski Zone, as well as the extension of the Jubilee shear 2 kilometres south of the Parkhill fault, are causing a re-evaluation of the identified exploration targets in 2018,” Red Pine Exploration’s president and CEO Quentin Yarie said in a news release.

“At that time, we identified contained ounces in the combined exploration targets ranging from 725,000 to 3 million ounces grading between 4 to 10 g/t gold. With our current intersections and higher-grade discoveries in 2021 to now, it appears we were conservative on our grade range,” Yarie noted.

The Phase 1 exploration plan and potential expansion continues later in the year.
