Vancouver, British Columbia - Searchlight Resources Inc. (“Searchlight” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SCLT, US:CNYCF, FSE 2CC2) is pleased to announce the completion of digitizing and compilation of historical drill holes at Robinson Creek Gold project, located approximately 15 kilometres west of Creighton, Saskatchewan, in the historic Flin Flon mining camp.

Highlights

  • Compilation of 70 historical drill holes from the 1940s and 1980s
  • 60 drill holes have gold intersections greater than 1 g/t Au
  • 45 gold intersections greater than 2.0 g/t Au over at least one metre
  • Multiple wide gold intersections:
    • 2.46 g/t Au over 57.60 m in DDH 81-2
    • 7.59 g/t Au over 10.94 m in DDH HB-6
    • 3.80 g/t Au over 21.00 m in DDH R07-1
    • 2.15 g/t Au over 32.00 m in DDH 81-1
  • The drill intersections and the 2021 magnetic survey outline a mineralized zone with a strike length of approximately 1,000 metres

The Robinson Creek Gold project consists of 7 claim blocks covering 2.93 square km, located approximately 15 km northwest of Searchlight’s Bootleg Lake claims. Searchlight has completed the compilation of the historical drilling at Robinson Creek, digitizing the detailed drill logs of 70 diamond drill holes from the 1940s and 1980s (Map 1). The results show multiple gold intersections throughout 60 drill holes, with 45 gold intersections greater than 2 g/t over at least one metre (Map 2). These historic drill holes outline a zone of gold mineralization extending at least 1,000 m along the Mosher Lake Shear Zone (Map 2). Significant intersections are listed in Table 1.

“At Searchlight we are assessing the Robinson Creek property from a different perspective than past explorers. We see the potential of combining this shallow, relatively high-grade gold deposit into a larger consolidated gold project with our brownfield Bootleg Lake Gold holdings nearby”, stated Stephen Wallace, CEO.

The Robinson Creek Gold target comprises three gold zones - the Vein, Bleiler, and Quartz Zones - over a strike length of approximately 1 km along the Mosher Lake Shear Zone. The Robinson Creek target is a structurally controlled mesothermal lode gold system, with considerable historical exploration which includes geologic mapping, trenching, soil surveys, airborne and ground geophysical surveys, and 70 diamond drill holes.

The Robinson Creek project was optioned in July 2021, and in September 2021 Searchlight completed an Airborne Magnetic Survey covering the entire claim block at 50 m line spacing. Concurrent with the airborne survey, an initial site visit was carried out in September 2021, confirming the presence of gold mineralization with multiple grab samples over 10 g/t gold, including samples of 19.31 g/t Au and 17.17 g/t Au.

Planning is underway for a summer field program of trenching, sampling, and mapping to determine the full extent of surface mineralization, and to obtain information for future drilling.

Disclaimer: Management cautions that the presented drill sample results are historical in nature, and Searchlight has not undertaken any independent investigation of the sampling, nor has it independently analyzed the results of the previous exploration work to verify the results. Searchlight considers these sample results relevant, as the Company uses historical reports and sample results to evaluate and plan future exploration programs. All drill intercepts are drill-indicated lengths. Insufficient technical information exists to demonstrate the true widths of these intersections. The technical information is derived from public documents available through the Saskatchewan Government Ministry of Energy and Resources.
