VANCOUVER, BC – (27 DECEMBER, 2018) – Following its successful Initial Public Offering, FireFox Gold Corp. (TSX-V: FFOX) (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to report new gold targets from its recently compiled geochemical database for its Jeesiö Gold Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB) of Northern Finland. Five new targets have emerged from new interpretations of geochemistry and geology, two of which are closely associated with the Sirkka and Venejoki Thrust Zones (STZ and VTZ). These major structures are known to host several of the gold deposits in the CLGB1.

The new database for the Jeesiö Project now includes 2,751 samples with gold analyses, many being accompanied by a full suite of pathfinder elements. The database includes 838 new till samples from the Company´s now-completed Bottom-of-Till (BOT) sampling programs, and 786 gold and multielement analyses of historical Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) samples that were not previously analyzed for gold. Furthermore, the database includes 1,127 previously unpublished gold analyses purchased from the GTK.

“Our initial sampling and data compilation programs at Jeesiö have been very successful outlining numerous new targets for follow-up exploration,” commented Carl Löfberg, Chief Executive Officer of FireFox. “The new prospects are called: Utsamo, Utsamovaara, Homelampi, Jeesiö West, and Kokko. We have already conducted follow-up BOT sampling at the Utsamo and Homelampi targets, extending the previously identified gold-in-till anomalies. This new data improves our understanding of the major controlling structures in the CLGB and is helping us focus on drill targets for the near future.”

A map of the new targets can be found here: https://bit.ly/2O29Za0.

FireFox is also pleased to report that it has commenced a diamond drill program at its Mustajärvi gold project, located approximately 10 kilometres northwest of the central Jeesiö property.   Additional details on the drill program will be reported in the first quarter of 2019.

Geology and Program Details

The Jeesiö Project is located near the southern margin of the CLGB. The northern portion occupies a poorly exposed package of highly deformed Paleoproterozoic-aged mafic volcanic and sedimentary rocks. These rocks underwent three ductile compressional events during the period 1.79-1.92 billion years ago, followed by one or more stages of brittle deformation. The earliest two phases of ductile compression produced thrust faults, the most important of which are the STZ (north) and VTZ (south), both of which have been traced for more than 100 kilometres2.

The southern portion of the Jeesiö Project overlies Archean-aged volcano-sedimentary complexes, which are also covered by a few metres of till. Outcrop is very scarce and till sampling is therefore a very effective method of geochemical exploration in the region. The gold content of till samples in the Jeesiö Project area is relatively high; 385 samples in the Project database exceed regional background of 10 ppb Au in till.

Homelampi is an historical target that has seen only limited exploration. It is located along the VTZ and gold anomalies in the historic GTK databases suggest there is significant gold dispersed in the local till. The mineralization encountered at Homelampi is associated with chromium-rich fuchsite quartzites. The mineral fuchsite is often associated with orogenic gold mineralization3. Homelampi underwent limited drill-testing in the early 1990´s by four short diamond drill holes, only one of which is preserved. According to the drill logs, low-grade gold was observed in all four drill holes associated with fuchsite, with the best intersection returning 0.3 ppm Au over 2.07 metres.

Historic exploration results may not reflect actual exploration results. FireFox has not done sufficient work to verify the historical sampling discussed here. While the Company believes the data were generated professionally and consistently with good practice of the day, unverified historic results are not to be relied upon. These historic drill hole results are cited to indicate the character of gold mineralization in this part of the CLGB. During actual mining, there may be internal waste and dilution that is not reflected here.

After completion of the Company´s recent BOT sampling program, the anomalous gold zone at Homelampi now measures approximately 1,300 by 400 metres (defined by gold grades in excess of 100 ppb Au in till), highlighted by till samples containing 601 and 1,070 ppb Au.

The STZ is interpreted to be offset by secondary structures that cross the Company´s Jeesiö NE tenement area. Along these structures, the Company has identified new zones of highly anomalous gold-in-till values, designated the Utsamo and Utsamovaara targets. Anomalous till samples in the area range from 21 to 454 ppb Au and are coincident with a 2.8-kilometre-long trend that follows the contact between mafic intrusive rocks and metasediments.

The Company continues its exploration activities at the Jeesiö Project, including additional till sampling, trenching, and geophysical surveys with the goal of identifying integrated drill targets by later this year.

Additional details on the project are available from the Company’s website, here

Quality Assurance

The BOT sampling was conducted using a track-mounted percussion drill rig or a man-portable Cobra drill. The drill rig was operated by Moreenityö Mäcklin Oy, an independent contractor with 30 years of experience in soil and bedrock sampling in glaciated terrains. The Firefox QA/QC program consisted of insertion of certificated standard material and blanks into the analytical batches, which did not show deviations from recommended values.

ALS Laboratories, a leading international provider of assay and analytical data to the mining industry, provided the assay and geochemical data presented in this news release. The FireFox samples were first prepared in Finland and then then sent to Ireland for analysis. The samples were first screened to -180 µm and dried at 60 °C and then analyzed by the AuME-TL43 method, utilizing an aqua regia digestion with an ICP-MS finish. All ALS geochemical hub laboratories, including the Irish facility, are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 for specific analytical procedures.  

The historical GTK samples were assayed at the Labtium Laboratory, Finland, which is accredited to the SFS-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard. The quality system of Labtium also complies with the requirements of Standards Council of Canada (CAN-P-1579) “Guidelines for Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories”. (Both ALS Laboratories and the Labtium Laboratory are independent of Firefox.)

Carefully mixed and split five-gram subsamples of original samples from the archives of GTK were digested in hot aqua regia, and analysed by ICP-OES and ICP-MS techniques for a large suite of elements, excluding gold (method 515PM). Gold was subsequently analysed by an aqua regia digestion and GFAAS finish in order to achieve a detection limit of 0.5 ppb after separation and co-precipitation (method 515U).

In addition, historical gold assays derived from the GTK data that were included into the Jeesiö database are believed to be of good quality, and thus suitable for reconnaissance work. However, details of the analytical methods applied and QA/QC protocols in place at the time remain poorly documented. The Company is not aware of any other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data disclosed in this news release.

VANCOUVER, BC – (25 September, 2018) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to report results from a recently completed Induced Polarization (IP) survey at its 100%-owned Mustajärvi Gold Property located in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland (CLGB). The 5.85 line-kilometre survey identified four high-chargeability targets along a previously defined fault structure that also hosts historic gold mineralization identified by sampling and drilling by the Geological Survey of Finland and Outokumpu Oyj (See Company news releases dated 20 Dec, 2017 and 12 Jul, 2018).

The IP survey delineated chargeability anomalies (Chargeability +20Mv/V) that are coincident with shallow historical gold mineralization as well as a prominent magnetic low that has been designated the Mustajärvi Fault Zone. The IP anomalies extend to a depth of at least 200 metres. This is significantly deeper than historical core drilling (~40 metres vertical depth) that targeted the Central Zone. The most significant chargeability anomalies are located southwest and northeast from the historical drilling along the strike of the Mustajärvi Fault Zone.

“This was a very successful geophysical survey,” commented Carl Löfberg, Chief Executive Officer of FireFox Gold. “By integrating these data with the results of our recent Bottom of Till sample program and ground magnetic survey, we have outlined several high-priority targets at Mustajärvi that will be drill tested in the near future.”

Discussion of IP Anomalies (Refer to map below for locations):

  • SW Zone Anomaly: This target is spatially associated with a bend in the Mustajärvi Fault Zone and is characterized by high chargeability, low resistivity, and high magnetism. The chargeability of this feature is consistent with that of other sulfide systems in Finland on which the FireFox team has worked. The SW Zone Anomaly can be detected down to 220 metres and dips towards the SE. This is the same dip direction as that of the known gold mineralization identified at the Central Zone. The axis of the SW Zone plunges to the SW and is open down plunge.
  • Central Anomaly: Very shallow historical core drilling traced the Mustajärvi mineralization to only 40 metres vertical depth. The Central Anomaly appears to be the continuation to depth of the known mineralization. The IP survey suggests that the chargeability anomaly associated with historical mineralization has roots at significant depth (up to 200 metres).  
  • West Deep Anomaly: This is a chargeability anomaly that was detected clearly on one survey line with some weaker responses on two adjacent lines. It is a high chargeability response associated with low resistivity and low magnetics. This anomaly also appears to be dipping southeast.
  • NE-Zone Anomaly: In the NE-Zone a high chargeability response was detected on two survey lines. These are also located in lower resistivity areas. The anomaly remains open towards the northeast.

This IP Survey detected chargeabilities that are consistent with the presence of sulphide minerals such as pyrite or pyrrhotite. For instance, anomalies that are associated with a chargeability high, resistivity low and magnetic high, could be caused by magnetic pyrrhotite.

In the near future, FireFox plans to test the identified IP anomalies by diamond core drilling to determine if the Mustajärvi-type mineralization extends along strike and to greater depths than currently known.

Additional details on the project are available in the technical report filed under the Company’s profile on SEDAR and on the Company’s website, here

FireFox Expands the Mustajärvi Property

FireFox also reports that it has applied for, and been granted, an additional 1,372 hectares of exploration reservations adjoining the existing Mustajärvi exploration permit.

Quality Assurance

The 2D Induced Polarization survey in the Mustajärvi project area was conducted by GRM-services Oy Ltd. (GRM), a well-known independent exploration geophysics company based in Vantaa, Finland. GRM planned the work in conjunction with Petri Peltonen, Exploration Manager of Firefox Gold. The survey utilized a dipole-dipole survey configuration, with a = 50m and n-values varying between 0.5 and 15.5. Electrode locations were positioned with a standard Garmin GPS. The IP transmitter was operated in time-domain with a 50% duty cycle at 0.125 Hz (2 seconds on/2 seconds off). The survey crew collected a minimum of three repeat readings at each station.

IP data processing and quality control were performed with Geosoft Oasis Montaj© software. The geophysicists generated pseudosections of the data by gridding the derived chargeability (M) and apparent resistivity against pseudodepth locations. The interpretation included 2D-section models of the data, produced through 2D-inversion methodology with UBC DCIP2D software.

The Company is not aware of any factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data disclosed in this news release.

VANCOUVER, BC – (August 30, 2018) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has executed a definitive option agreement (the “Agreement”) with Magnus Minerals Ltd. (“Magnus”) to acquire a 100% interest in approximately 46,039 hectares of mineral exploration reservations in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (the “CLGB”) of Northern Finland. The new properties are comprised of four separate reservations, collectively referred to as the Seuru Properties (or the “Properties”). Combined with its other holdings of exploration reservations and ore prospecting permits, this acquisition brings FireFox’s total gold exploration portfolio to more than 108,000 hectares or 1,080 square kilometers.       

As first announced on April 19th, 2018, the Agreement gives FireFox the ability to earn a 100% interest in the Properties by making payments of up to CAD $200,000 in cash and the issuance of 1,500,000 shares of the Company to Magnus over a three-year period, while investing CAD $1,500,000 in mineral exploration on the Properties. Magnus will retain a 1.5% NSR royalty on production from the Properties, 0.5% of which can be purchased for 1,000 troy ounces of gold.  A payment of CAD $25,000 was made upon execution.

Patrick Highsmith, Chairman of FireFox, commented: “FireFox is now one of the largest tenement holders in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt. The Seuru Properties comprise a significant portion of the highly prospective Kittilä Group rocks, and part of the land package adjoins the east side Agnico Eagle’s Kittilä Mine property, host to Finland’s only world class gold deposit. FireFox has commenced our first exploration campaign on the Properties. Our reconnaissance geology team has already generated targets in the area, and we have moved promptly to acquire additional exploration reservations to fill in around the Seuru Properties.”

The Properties are generally underlain by the mafic volcanic rocks of the Kittilä Group. The Properties have seen approximately CAD $3 million of historic investment. The historic geophysical surveys, till geochemistry, and drilling results in the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) database indicate a number of target areas where structural intersections coincide with gold and trace element geochemical anomalies. The prominent structural controls on mineralization in this area, including those at the Kittilä Mine, tend to be oriented NNE and NNW.

Corporate Update 

The Company also reports that it has elected to reduce its interest in the Riikonkoski Project by allowing its larger mineral exploration reservations to lapse and by making no applications for exploration permits. The Company evaluated the copper and gold mineralization at Riikonkoski in three dimensions and concluded that the potential of the property falls short of the Company’s priority projects elsewhere in Lapland. 

Qualified Persons

Dr. Petri Peltonen, Exploration Manager of FireFox Gold, is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Dr. Peltonen has supervised the collection and interpretation of the technical data generated in the Company’s 2018 field program at the Jeesiö Project and has helped prepare and approve the technical information in this news release.

VANCOUVER, BC – (July 12, 2018) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has completed an extensive Bottom-of-Till (BOT) sampling program and received all analyses, at its 100%-owned Mustajärvi gold exploration project in Lapland, Finland (“Mustajärvi”). The results of the survey highlight an area of anomalous gold and other trace elements associated with interpreted faults and magnetic anomalies that stretches for approximately two kilometres. The Company’s preliminary interpretation of these data indicates that the area of interest for additional exploration extends well beyond the zone of historic drilling.

“Our team worked through the winter and completed the BOT sampling program on budget and with no major difficulties,” commented FireFox CEO Carl Löfberg. “As with many orogenic gold deposits, the mineralization at Mustajärvi is structurally controlled. Based on these data, the system may be more extensive than the historical drilling indicated. Having also recently completed an Induced Polarization (IP) survey on the project, we continue to advance our exploration towards identifying a substantial deposit in the area.”

Project Geology and Program Details

The Mustajärvi gold occurrence lies near the southern margin of the Paleoproterozoic Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB), in close proximity to the shallow south dipping transcrustal Venejoki thrust system. The gold mineralization in the Mustajärvi area is similar to that of many orogenic gold deposits hosted by volcanic rocks, where the gold is associated with pyrite-bearing quartz and quartz-tourmaline veins within albitized mafic volcanics and volcaniclastic rocks. The known auriferous quartz-tourmaline-pyrite veins at Mustajärvi are hosted at or near the contact between metavolcanic and metasedimentary rocks. Coarse supergene gold in rock samples from the near-surface environment is associated with concentrations of as much as 440 ppm tellurium, as well as elevated levels of bismuth, selenium, and cobalt. Other common pathfinder elements such as silver and arsenic also correlate with gold.

This sampling program was designed: 1) to duplicate limited historical sampling lines by the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) across the known mineralization; 2) to expand the sampling further east and west along the interpreted strike of the mineralization; 3) to infill historical sampling in the NE part of the license area where high-grade gold-in-till anomalies had been encountered; and 4) to systematically sample an area in the southern part of the license, where the GTK reported abundant native gold grains in historic till samples.

Altogether, 598 BOT samples were collected and analyzed from the Mustajärvi prospecting permit area. This sampling campaign traversed a total of approximately 6 line kilometres oriented approximately north-south, perpendicular to the strike of known mineralization. Sample spacing along lines was 10 metres in areas close to known mineralization and 20 metres in new areas of interest.

Given the low background content of gold in the local Lapland glacial till, Company geologists believe that gold contents in these samples of more than approximately 40 ppb (0.040 ppm) are potentially significant and worthy of follow-up exploration. Samples containing more than 100 ppb (0.100 ppm) appear to be highly anomalous in this area. The highly anomalous samples occur along a corridor stretching for approximately two kilometres, apparently associated with interpreted faults and magnetic anomalies. These anomalies occur over an area that may be much larger than previously believed based on drilled historic mineralization (See Figure 1, below). The multi-element anomalies complement the gold data and identified several new targets for follow-up away from the known gold-hosting structures. The occurrence of widespread narrow gold and trace element anomalies is consistent with an extensive quartz-vein system associated with faulting in intensively altered greenstones and metasediments. 

The most significant gold anomalies extend westward from the historic drill-indicated mineralization, including the maximum gold value identified in the survey of 2,540 ppb (2.54 ppm). Other important new anomalies appear to follow the margins of magnetic highs and track magnetic linears outlined by the Company´s ground magnetic survey over Mustajärvi. The primary linear magnetic feature is interpreted to be a second–order fault zone, perhaps related to the first-order transcrustal Venejoki fault system (See Figure 2, below). The presence of high gold in till that closely follows this interpreted second-order fault zone to the northeast suggests that the previously known mineralization may be only a small part of a more extensive fault-related gold system. Late northeast striking faults have been interpreted as an important control for some of the orogenic gold deposits in the CLGB.

It should be noted that these are early stage exploration results, similar to soil geochemistry. The potential quantity and grade of gold mineralization related to these anomalies is conceptual in nature.  There has been insufficient exploration on the Mustajärvi property to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.

The Mustajärvi Project is fully permitted for follow-up trenching and diamond core drilling. The Company continues to evaluate data from its 2018 exploration program in anticipation of drilling later in the year.

Additional details on the project are available from the Company’s website, www.firefoxgold.com

Quality Assurance

The base of till sampling was conducted with a percussion drill rig by an experienced contractor Moreenityö Mäcklin Oy, based in Finland.  Moreenityö Mäcklin Oy has 30 years of experience in soil and bedrock sampling in glaciated terrains. The average depth of the drill holes into the glacial overburden was 3.3 metres. The diameter of the drill bit was 35 millimetres, and the diameter of the sampling tube on the drill was 28 millimetres resulting in an average sample size sent to the laboratory of approximately 240 grams.

ALS Laboratories, a leading international provider of assay and analytical data to the mining industry, provided the assay and geochemical data presented in this news release. The samples were prepared in Finland and then then sent to Ireland for analysis. The samples were first dried at 60 °C before being screened to -180 µm and then analyzed by the AuME-TL43 method, which utilizes an aqua regia digestion followed by an ICP-MS finish. All ALS geochemical hub laboratories, including the Irish facility, are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 for specific analytical procedures. The Firefox Gold QA/QC program includes insertion of certificated standard material and blanks into the analytical batches, which did not show deviations from recommended values.

Subject to the execution of a definitive option agreement, the Company has agreed to earn its interest in the Seuru Properties by making payments of CAD $200,000 in cash and 1,500,000 shares to Magnus over a three-year period, while investing CAD $1,500,000 in mineral exploration on the Properties. Combined with its other holdings of exploration reservations and ore prospecting permits, the addition of the Seuru Properties will bring FireFox’s total gold exploration portfolio to more than 117,000 hectares or 1,170 square kilometers, all located in Finland.

Finland is one of the top mining jurisdictions in the world as indicated by its 1st ranking in the Investment Attractiveness Index of the 2017 Fraser Institute Survey of Mining Companies. Having a strong mining law and long mining tradition, Finland remains underexplored for gold. Recent exploration results in the country have highlighted its prospectivity, and FireFox is proud to have a Finland based CEO and technical team.

VANCOUVER, BC – (April 19, 2018) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has executed a non-binding letter of intent (“LOI”) with Magnus Minerals Ltd. (“Magnus”) outlining a purchase option agreement under which FireFox can acquire 100% interest in approximately 50,630 hectares of mineral exploration reservations in Lapland, Finland. The new properties are comprised of four separate reservations, collectively referred to as the Seuru Properties (or the “Properties). Combined with its other holdings of exploration reservations and ore prospecting permits, this acquisition will bring FireFox’s total gold exploration portfolio to more than 117,000 hectares or 1,170 square kilometers.        

Subject to the execution of a definitive agreement (the “Agreement”), the Company has agreed to earn its interest in the Properties by making payments of up to CAD $200,000 in cash and 1,500,000 shares to Magnus over a three-year period, while investing CAD $1,500,000 in mineral exploration on the Properties. Magnus will retain a 1.5% NSR royalty on production from the Properties, 0.5% of which can be purchased for 1,000 troy ounces of gold.

Patrick Highsmith, Chairman of FireFox, commented: “Once executed in the next few weeks, this Agreement will deliver FireFox into an elite group of large tenement holders in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt. These new properties lie in the highly prospective Kittilä Group rocks. This is an important new target area for the Company because these rocks are host to Finland’s only world class gold deposit, Agnico Eagle’s Kittilä Mine. In fact, a portion of the Seuru Property adjoins the east side of the mine property. We are excited to begin work on the Properties, which are rich with target opportunities.”

The Properties are generally underlain by the mafic volcanic rocks of the Kittilä Group. The Properties have seen approximately CAD $3 million of historic investment. The historic geophysical surveys, till geochemistry, and drilling results in the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) database indicate a number of target areas where structural intersections coincide with gold and trace element geochemical anomalies. The prominent structural controls on mineralization in this area, including at the Kittilä deposit, tend to be oriented NNE and NNW.

VANCOUVER, BC – (March 21, 2018) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an exploration update for its Jeesiö-Mustajärvi Gold Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland (“the Project”).  The Project includes the 100%-owned Mustajärvi property and the optioned Jeesiö exploration properties.

In late January the Company initiated an intensive Bottom-of-Till (“BOT”) sampling program at Mustajärvi (see news release dated February 7, 2018). The primary objectives of the program were to infill and extend an area of anomalous gold in historic till sampling around the previously drilled mineralization. Sampling has proceeded as planned, and to date 440 samples have been collected and sent for gold and multi-element geochemical analyses. The program is nearly complete.

Once the Mustajärvi BOT sampling program is complete, the Company plans to initiate an 11 line-kilometer Induced Polarization (IP) survey at the property. The contractor will be GRM-services Ltd, based in Vantaa, Finland, a recognized geophysical services company with extensive experience in northern latitudes. The survey configuration will be dipole-dipole 2D IP with 50 m dipoles, and the depth penetration will be approximately 250 meters. The survey will cover the majority of the Mustajärvi exploration permit area and will be utilized, together with the recently accumulated till geochemical data, for planning the upcoming diamond core drilling program.

Following the completion of the Mustajärvi BOT sampling program in approximately one week, the BOT rig will be re-located to initiate a similar program at the Jeesiö exploration properties.  A legally binding exploration permit for Jeesiö was recently received from the Finnish Mining Authority (“Tukes”), allowing the Company to conduct routine exploration work including sampling, trenching and diamond core drilling within this new 1,352.5 hectare permit area. The permit was granted very quickly, within approximately 100 days from its submission, including the 30-day hearing period and separate 30-day objection period. No objections were received.

Carl Löfberg, CEO of FireFox, commented: “Our winter program is advancing very well. The fast processing of the first exploration permit at Jeesiö demonstrates the ability of our experienced in-country team to manage applications, and of Tukes to process them quickly. We expect that the current BOT programs and IP-survey will provide well-defined drill targets for the Mustajärvi and Jeesiö properties, and we look forward to a core drilling program later this year.

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION, DISTRIBUTION OR DISSEMINATION DIRECTLY, OR INDIRECTLY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES.

VANCOUVER, BC – (February 7, 2018) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has commenced a base-of-till (BOT) sampling program at its 100%-owned Mustajärvi gold property (“Mustajärvi” or the “Property”) in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt of Finland. Mustajärvi occurs along the Venejoki Fault, a southern splay of the Sirkka Gold Line, which is a deep crustal structure that controlled the emplacement of more than 40 gold deposits in the region.

The present sampling program consists of approximately 250 closely spaced sample points in an area where bedrock is covered by 5 to 8 metres of glacial overburden. The basal till and the bedrock surface will be targeted using a percussion drill mounted on a tracked Bandwagen vehicle. Company geologists will submit the resulting samples for gold and ultratrace multi-element analyses. The drill contractor is Mäckling Ltd., a renowned company with 30 years of experience in deep till sampling in glaciated terrains.

This sampling program has several objectives:

  1. Duplicate historical sampling over the known mineralization identified by the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK);
  2. Expand the sampling further east and west along the interpreted strike of the mineralization;
  3. Infill historical sampling in the NE part of the license area where high-grade gold-in-till anomalies were reported in the historic GTK database; and
  4. Systematically sample an area in the southern part of the license, where the GTK reported abundant native gold grains in historic till samples.

While the Company believes the preceding historical sampling data are reliable, readers are cautioned that a “qualified person” (as defined by National Instrument 43-101) has not yet completed sufficient work to be able to verify the historical information, and therefore the information should not be relied upon.

Following the successful execution of this sampling program, the Company expects to refine and expand upon existing targets for diamond drilling at Mustajärvi. FireFox is planning to begin diamond drilling at its Lapland projects during the summer of 2018. Testing for continuity of the historic Mustajärvi gold mineralization down dip and along strike will be a priority for the Company.

Carl Löfberg, CEO of FireFox, commented on the news, “We are excited about our growing portfolio of assets in Lapland. The 2018 program is launching at Mustajärvi and will move on to Jeesiö. BOT Sampling has been shown to be very effective in Finland and other glaciated terrains for following up on regional geochemical anomalies and geophysical targets. We look forward to adding these detailed data to our growing database, so that we can refine our drill targets in advance of the core drilling program expected later this year.”

The Mustajärvi Property includes a historical prospect discovered by Outokumpu Oyj (a previous owner of the Property) based on reported high gold content in local till. The native gold in till attracted artisanal gold miners, who exploited small surficial deposits. The mineralization is consistent with other orogenic gold deposits in Lapland. Gold occurs in pyrite-bearing quartz and quartz-carbonate-tourmaline veins, which are hosted by albitized schist and volcaniclastic rocks. Previous owners, Outokumpu Oyj and Aurora Exploration Ltd., conducted ground geophysical surveys [magnetics, induced polarization (IP), and self-potential (SP)], trenching, systematic till geochemistry, and drilled 12 shallow diamond drill holes to depths up to 72 metres.

Geophysical surveys highlighted the NE-SW striking shear zone, with known mineralization being spatially associated with magnetic, IP, and chargeability gradients. However, previous drilling tested less than 200 metres strike of the interpreted two-kilometer anomaly and only the upper 50 metres of depth. The Outokumpu drilling yielded some high-grade intersections, including: 2.7m @ 14.6 g/t Au (from 20.7 m), 12.0m @ 2.7 g/t Au (from 21.0 m), and 1.0m @ 18.8 g/t Au (from 41.0 m). The drilling suffered from significant core loss due to faulting and fracturing, so true thickness of mineralization is unknown.

VANCOUVER, BC – (December 20, 2017) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into a binding Agreement to purchase 100% of the Mustajärvi gold exploration project in the Lapland region of Finland (“Mustajärvi” or “the Project”). The vendor is Finnish junior exploration company Aurora Exploration Ltd. (“Aurora”).

Mustajärvi is located within the mineral endowed Central Lapland Greenstone Belt in Northern Finland, adjacent to a southern splay of the Sirkka Gold Line (Venejoki Fault), a deep crustal structure that has controlled the emplacement of more than 40 gold deposits in the region. The 147-hectare Mustajärvi exploration permit extends more than 2 kilometres along the interpreted strike of the Mustajärvi shear zone, and it is fully permitted for drilling.

Carl Löfberg, CEO of FireFox, commented: “The acquisition of the drilling-permitted Mustajärvi Project at very favorable terms shows FireFox’s ability to advance the tenement package in Northern Finland in areas highly prospective for gold. The Mustajärvi target is adjacent to tenements in our Jeesiö Project, and it will be incorporated into our 2018 winter program. We expect to commence with diamond core drilling at Mustajärvi later this winter with an initial program of twinning historic holes and initial step-outs onto new targets.”

Mustajärvi is a historical prospect discovered by Outokumpu Oyj based on exceptionally high gold content in local till. The abundant native gold in till attracted artisanal gold miners, who exploited small surficial deposits. The mineralization is typical of orogenic gold deposits, hosted by albitized mafic volcanics and volcaniclastic rocks, where the gold is associated with pyrite-bearing quartz and quartz-tourmaline veins. Previous owners, Outokumpu Oyj and Aurora, in, respectively, 1990 - 1992 and 2017, conducted ground geophysical surveys (magnetic, induced polarization (IP), and self-potential), trenching, systematic till geochemistry, and drilled 12 shallow diamond drill holes to depths up to 72 metres.

Geophysical surveys completed by Outokumpu Oyj and Aurora, in, respectively, 1991 – 1992 and 2017, highlighted the NE-SW striking shear zone, with known mineralization being spatially associated with magnetic, IP, and chargeability gradients. However, previous drilling tested less than 200 metres strike of the interpreted 2 kilometre anomaly and only the upper 50 metres of depth. The Outokumpu drilling yielded some high-grade intersections, including: 2.7m @ 14.6 g/t Au (from 20.7 m), 12.0m @ 2.7 g/t Au (from 21.0 m), and 1.0m @ 18.8 g/t Au (from 41.0 m). The drilling suffered from significant core loss due to faulting and fracturing; widths may not represent true thickness. Aurora geologists collected grab samples during the 2017 field season from trenches and boulders; one sample of sulfide-rich quartz vein material assayed 79.8 g/t Au. The drilled Mustajärvi deposit is open all directions.

While the Company believes the preceding historical drilling and sampling data are reliable, readers are cautioned that a “qualified person” (as defined by National Instrument 43-101) has not yet completed sufficient work to be able to verify the historical information, and therefore the information should not be relied upon.

The Firefox team completed comprehensive due diligence of the Project prior to completing the binding Agreement. The Company is in the process of finalizing details of a percussion drill till sampling program that is to be followed by diamond core drilling of duplicate holes and step-out holes on new targets.

Commercial terms

FireFox will pay a total of €30,000 and issue 400,000 common shares to Aurora in order to acquire 100% interest in the Mustajärvi Project. Aurora retains a 1% Net Smelter Royalty (“NSR”) on all metals sold from the Mustajärvi Project, 50% of which can be repurchased by Firefox for US $500,000. The repurchase right is exercisable at any point within 180 days of the Company’s receipt of a positive feasibility study for the Mustajärvi Project that is in compliance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101.

About the Jeesiö Project

The Jeesio Project, now incorporating the Mustajärvi Project, comprises approximately 46,200 hectares of the prospective Central Lapland Greenstone Belt. The property is adjoined on the eastern end by Aurion Resources Ltd. and Anglo-American PLC. The Company is currently developing targets based on data generated during its maiden exploration program during summer and fall of 2017 as well as the historic data reported in the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) database. Based on GTK mapping and company fieldwork, Jeesio hosts an extensive section of the Sirkka Gold Line as well as abundant mafic volcanic and metasedimentary rocks.

VANCOUVER, BC – (December 14, 2017) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to advise that it has added 3 new tenement blocks to its gold exploration portfolio in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt of Finland. The Company can earn a 100% interest in the 73.2 km2 (7,320 hectares) reservation applications as a result of an addendum to the existing option agreement with Magnus Minerals Ltd (see Company news release dated August 2, 2017 under the former name of Silverstone Resources Corp). The new tenements are located adjacent to the Sirkka Gold Line – a major crustal structure that has controlled the emplacement of the majority of the orogenic gold deposits in Lapland.

Carl Lo fberg, CEO of FireFox, commented, “We have further strengthened FireFox’s gold portfolio in Finland with no cost to the Company. Now controlling more than 57,000 hectares in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt and a total of more than 67,000 hectares in Finland, we see many gold in till and geophysical anomalies that will warrant follow-up during our Winter program. This new acquisition also shows the value of the Geological Survey of Finland database, which helps us accelerate the pace of work on these greenfield projects.”

Two of the blocks are located adjacent to the Company’s existing Jeesio Project. These two blocks are considered as greenfield exploration targets, but they are known to host prospective geology and gold anomalies from historical work reflected in the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) database. FireFox geologists identified the new properties as targets based on an internal review of Company and GTK data. Drilling at a nearby target called Kiekero maa yielded near surface gold intercepts of up to 5 metres at 5.8 g/t associated with the contact between metasediments and mafic intrusive rocks. The newly acquired FireFox tenements include two prominent multi-point till anomalies (0.58 and 0.38 g/t Au) in close proximity to similar lithologic contacts. Originally, this data was collected by Outokumpu Oyj and later transferred to the GTK database. Outokumpu Oyj also identified significant gold in the heavy mineral fraction of till from these properties. These prospective areas have not been subject to any known historical drilling. FireFox is currently planning its winter exploration program, which will include follow-up of a number of significant anomalies on the Jeesio Project.

The third new block is located further west along the Sirkka Gold Line. It adjoins the Company’s Riikonkoski Project and partially surrounds the historic Saatopora Mine, held by Outokumpu Oyj. The now-idled Saatopora Mine produced approximately 220,000 oz Au and 5,650 t Cu between 1988-1995. The newly acquired tenement near Saattopora hosts 39 historical diamond drill holes, which the Company will be reviewing in detail during its Winter program. (All sampling and production results noted above are reported in, and were recovered from, the GTK database.)

Summary of Transaction

The Company has agreed with Magnus Minerals Ltd. to add the new tenements to the existing option agreement, dated August 1, 2017, through a letter agreement as an addendum. The properties will be subject to the existing terms of that agreement (see below) with no additional cost to the Company.

About the Jeesiö Project

The Jeesio Project is comprised of approximately 45,500 hectares of the prospective Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, including two large granted exploration reservations, two smaller applications for exploration permits, and the two new reservations covering approximately 5,580 hectares. The property is adjoined on the eastern end by Aurion Resources and Anglo-American. The Company is currently developing targets based on data generated during its maiden exploration program during Summer and Fall of 2017 as well as the historic data reported in the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) database. Based on GTK mapping and company fieldwork, Jeesio hosts an extensive section of the Sirrka Gold Line as well as abundant mafic volcanic and metasedimentary rocks.

VANCOUVER, BC – (December 6, 2017) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to report results from its maiden exploration program at its 100%-controlled Ylo ja rvi Gold Project (“Ylo ja rvi” or the “Project”) in Southern Finland. The Project is located in the Tampere Schist Belt, a well known historical and active gold mining belt. The 107 km2 (10,700 ha) Ylo ja rvi property covers almost half of this very prospective belt and shares its western boundary with the historic Haveri Gold Mine property. The currently operating Orivesi Gold mine, (owned by Dragon Mining), lies approximately 30km to the east and to date has produced more than 500,000 oz of gold.

FireFox initiated a limited exploration program at Ylo ja rvi in June 2017 that focused on geological mapping, prospecting, sampling and geophysics. Field crews targeted five areas where historic work had encountered high-grade gold in boulders, outcrop, or drilling.

Results were very promising and FireFox geologists identified new multi-element anomalies that extended the Oks gold trend by more than 1,000 metres. Rock outcrop is scarce on the property due to glacial overburden, nevertheless, one rock sample taken from outcrop returned 7.35 g/t Au. Seven rock samples exceeded 1 g/t Au, five of which were taken from local boulders, and the remaining two were sampled from outcrops.

Geophysical surveys also identified several areas with strong indications of sulfide mineralization at depth. The Company intends to follow up this successful initial program with detailed till sampling, mapping, and sampling in several areas.

Carl Lo fberg, CEO of FireFox, commented on the first technical result from the newly launched company, “Our field teams moved quickly to initiate work at Ylöjärvi. It was a modest program, but we are very pleased to have extended several of the historical anomalies and provided focus in multiple areas that could lead to drilling sooner than we had expected. We are also excited by the preliminary indications from our geophysics, suggesting the need for follow-up over large areas at our Harhala and Paronen targets.”

About the Ylöjärvi Project 

The Ylo ja rvi Project is comprised of two large granted exploration reservations as well as a smaller exploration permit application, covering approximately 10,700 ha of the prospective volcano-sedimentary Tampere Schist Belt. The Company is currently targeting five key areas on the Project that have strong similarities in geochemistry, alteration and structural geology to the nearby historic and operating gold mines, particularly the Orivesi Mine. Gold in the area is usually associated with pyrite or arsenopyrite and hosted by quartz veins in altered volcanic rocks or shear zones in granodiorite. The prospectivity of the Project is supported by the presence of 85 glacial boulders on the property containing greater than 1 g/t Au, as well as strong gold anomalies in till samples, as reported in the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) database.

Summary of the 2017 Field Program

The 2017 program focused on five target areas: Harhala, Lava, Kivija rvi, Paronen, and Oks. The work program included: geological mapping, prospecting with rock and boulder sampling, soil and till sampling, and self-potential (SP) surveys. Altogether, the geologists and field teams collected over 140 samples and 40 line-kilometres of SP geophysics. The Oks and Harhala targets returned the most promising results to date.

The Oks target hosts a gold-bearing altered quartz-sericite-pyrite schist that typically measures 50-to-150 metres wide and is now traced over a strike length of approximately 2.7 kilometres. Previously, narrow zones of high-grade gold were encountered in limited trenching and drilling on the Oks zone by the GTK and other companies, including Oy Lohja Ab, Outokumpu Oy, Oy SES Finland Ltd, and Polar Mining Oy. FireFox geologists identified new multielement anomalies that extended the Oks gold trend by more than 1,000 metres. The sampling included two rock chip from outcrops that contained 7.35 g/t and 1.84 g/t Au, respectively.

Using portable Cobra drills for sampling deep glacial till, the FireFox team identified anomalous gold as well as associated silver, arsenic, antimony, tellurium, and lead. Company geologists will return to the Oks Target to conduct additional structural geology analysis, mapping, and basal till sampling before proposing targets for diamond core drilling.

The Harhala Target lies approximately 10 kilometres west of Oks, near the historic Haveri Mine. The GTK database includes a historic boulder sample containing 31 g/t Au taken from Harhala, as well as two outcrop samples that yielded 9.2 and 23.0 g/t Au. The detailed FireFox SP survey outlined a conductive anomaly covering approximately 0.5 km2. In the same area, geologists discovered two new glacial boulders assaying 0.4 and 1.9 g/t Au. The team is planning to return to Harhala to advance these initial favorable findings.

Quality Assurance

FireFox geologists have conducted the sampling reported in this news release according to standard industry practice and with due attention to quality assurance and quality control. ALS Laboratories, a leading international provider of assay and analytical data to the mining industry, provided the assay and geochemical data presented in this news release.

VANCOUVER, BC – (Sept 29, 2017) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”), formerly Silverstone Resources Corp., an unlisted reporting issuer in British Columbia and Alberta, is pleased to announce that it has commenced gold exploration activities on the Jeesio and Ylo ja rvi Projects, key properties in its 60,000 hectare land package in Finland.

The geological team from Magnus Minerals Ltd. (“Magnus”), acting as operator, initiated a program of geological mapping, rock sampling, till sampling, and geophysics on the 40,000 hectare Jeesio Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt. This is some of the first detailed reconnaissance and follow-up exploration work in this area since news of the Aamurusko gold in boulders discovery by Aurion Resources, less than 10 km north from the FireFox survey area.

Similarly, in southern Finland, Magnus geologists have been conducting mapping, sampling, and geophysics on the 10,000 hectare Ylo ja rvi Gold Project, which is located in the Tampere Schist Belt. The Ylo ja rvi Project lies between the currently operating Orivesi Gold Mine and the inactive Haveri Gold Mine. This project includes numerous historical gold showings and previously drilled prospects.

The Company expects to continue this prospecting work as long as weather permits. Combined with follow-up systematic sampling and interpretation, these surveys may lead to maiden drill targets on the Ylo ja rvi Project by Winter of 2017 – 2018. Magnus is funding this first stage of exploration work and will be reimbursed by FireFox as part of the spending commitment related to the option agreement on the Finland properties (See Silverstone Resources Corp. news release dated August 2, 2017).

Corporate Update

The Company also reports that it has issued 800,000 common shares of FireFox (“Shares”) by way of private placement to certain FireFox consultants at a price of $0.0001 per Share in recognition of their respective contributions to the initial development of the Company.

Quality Assurance

Patrick Highsmith, Certified Professional Geologist (AIPG CPG # 11702) and director of the Company, is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, and has supervised the preparation of the scientific and technical information that forms a portion of this news release.

VANCOUVER,  BC – (Sept  26,  2017)  – Silverstone Resources Corp. ("Silverstone" or the "Company"), an unlisted reporting issuer in British Columbia and Alberta, has changed its name to FireFox Gold Corp. ("FireFox").

Silverstone was spun out of Anacott Resources Corp. ("Anacott") as a wholly owned subsidiary in July 2017 (See Anacott news release dated July 28, 2017). Silverstone later entered into an option agreement with Magnus Minerals Ltd. (see Silverstone news release dated August 2, 2017) whereby it has the right to acquire a 100% interest (subject to a 1.5% NSR royalty) in approximately 60,000 hectares of exploration reservations in Finland.

In recognition of its focus on Finland, and in particular on the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt in the north of the country, the Company changed its name to FireFox Gold Corp. The word FireFox comes from a literal translation of the Finnish word for the Aurora Borealis – revontuli, meaning "fox's fire." Finnish legend has it that the fox runs so fast across the snow that his tail makes sparks, which rise into the heavens and are seen as the Aurora.  

The Company and its CEO Mr.  Carl  Lofberg are based in Finland and its management  offices are split between Finland and Vancouver.  Most of FireFox's technical team resides in Finland while its CFO Mr. Andrew MacRitchie is based out of Vancouver. The Company's board of directors is currently comprised of:  Patrick Highsmith, Carl Lofberg, and Joe Mullin.

Vancouver, British Columbia, August 1, 2017 – Silverstone Resources Corp. (“Silverstone” or the
Company”), is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement dated as of August 1,
2017 (the “Option Agreement”) with Magnus Minerals Ltd. (“Magnus”), a company incorporated under
the laws of Finland, whereby Magnus has granted Silverstone an exclusive right and option to earn and
acquire a 100% interest in each of the Riikonkoski (East and West), Jeesiö (including Jeesiö West) and
Ylöjӓrvi (including Oks) projects (the “Projects”), which are located in Finland and currently owned by
Magnus (the “Option”).

Pursuant to the Option Agreement, Silverstone is required to (among other things): (i) issue 6,000,000
common shares to, or as directed by, Magnus; (ii) incur and fund exploration expenditures on or in respect
of the Projects in the aggregate amount of $2,500,000 ($300,000 by August 31, 2018; $600,000 by August
31, 2019; and $1,600,000 by August 31, 2020); (iii) grant a 1.5% net smelter return royalty (the “NSR”) in
favour of Magnus; and (iv) make an aggregate amount of $250,000 in cash payments to Magnus ($30,000
by August 31, 2018; $60,000 by August 31, 2019; and $160,000 by August 31, 2020).

The Option Agreement also provides that if Silverstone exercises the Option, Silverstone will be obligated
to pay Magnus an additional payment equal to the value of 1,000 troy ounces of gold, within 12 months of
the commencement of commercial production. Pursuant to the Option Agreement, Magnus has agreed to
provide mineral exploration services to Silverstone.

At any time, Silverstone may elect to stop making payments under the Option Agreement, which would
result in the termination of the Option Agreement. Upon termination of the Option Agreement,
Silverstone would forego all of its rights to the Projects and any payments (including the issuance of
shares) already made to Magnus or expended on the Projects.

The NSR provides that Silverstone will pay Magnus a 1.5% NSR on minerals mined or produced from the
Projects. Silverstone will have the right within 90 days of a positive feasibility study on one (or more) of
the Projects to reduce the NSR by 0.5% to a 1% NSR on such Project. To exercise this right, Silverstone
will need to pay Magnus an amount equal to the value of 1,000 troy ounces of gold. The NSR also
provides that the NSR deductions are capped at 10% of the total revenue from the mined products
(calculated on a quarterly basis).

In connection with entering into the Option Agreement, Mr. Walter Coles has resigned as President, CEO
and a director of the Company and Ms. Barbara Broughton has resigned as a director of the Company. Carl
Löfberg, Managing Director of Magnus, has been appointed as a director and the President and CEO of the
Company and Patrick Highsmith has been appointed as a director of the Company. Joe Mullin will remain
a director of the Company.

VANCOUVER, BC – (September 18th, 2019) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that diamond core drilling has started at its 100% owned Mustajärvi Gold Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland. This phase of drilling consists of nine planned drill holes, with total length of approximately 1,500 metres. The program has two primary objectives: (1) to follow up the high-grade mineralization intersected earlier this year, and (2) to increase the strike length of the mineralization by stepping out beyond the historic mineralization located near the center of the Mustajärvi property.

The first four drill holes will follow up the high-grade gold mineralization (2m @ 45.1 g/t Au) intersected during the Company´s Phase 1 drilling last winter (see FireFox news release dated 21 Jan, 2019). Of these four holes, two will target the continuation of this high-grade gold zone another 25m and 50m down dip, respectively. The remaining two holes are planned to test the strike extent of this mineralization 25m east and west.

The fifth hole will test the continuation of mineralization encountered in two historical Outokumpu drill holes, one of which intersected 2.7m @ 14.6 g/t Au. Drill hole six will be an attempt to duplicate an Outokumpu hole that intersected 12m @ 2.7 g/t Au despite suffering severe core loss up to 50%. The aim of these holes is to better understand the true width and grades of the near-surface mineralization.

Cautionary note: The historic Outokumpu drilling suffered from significant core loss due to faulting and fracturing; reported widths may not represent true thickness. While the Company believes the preceding historical drilling and sampling data are reliable, readers are cautioned that a “qualified person” (as defined by National Instrument 43-101) has not yet completed sufficient work to verify the historical information, and therefore the information should not be relied upon. Outokumpu data retrieved from the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) database.

The remaining three holes are step-out holes further away from the central Mustajärvi mineralization. Two drill holes will be located approximately 450m northeast from known drilling. These holes will target an interpreted dilational jog along the shear zone which is associated with two distinct geochemical gold-in-till anomalies. Another drill hole will be located 250m southwest of the central Mustajärvi drill holes. It will target an interpreted flexure in the Mustajärvi shear zone that is associated with a strong IP chargeability anomaly and low resistivity values.

Assay results from these holes are expected during late October and early November.

About the Mustajärvi Gold Project

The Mustajärvi Gold Project (the “Project”) consists of an exploration permit and exploration reservations covering over 15km2. The project area is flat, glacial till-covered terrain in the Lapland region of northern Finland, 17 km east of the town of Kittilä, with road and power on the property. The Project is situated in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, which hosts several recent gold discoveries. The Project occupies more than two kilometres strike length of the Venejoki Thrust Zone, which is believed to be a splay of the Sirkka Thrust Zone, an important host to gold mineralization in the belt.  The observed gold mineralization, structural setting and work to date support the potential for a high-grade orogenic gold deposit on the Mustajärvi property.

VANCOUVER, BC – (September 3rd, 2019) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the 2019 field program at its fully permitted Jeesiö Gold Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland.  

The Company has compiled results from recently completed geophysical and geochemical surveys and further delineated the major crustal structure that is believed to be the continuation of the Sirkka Shear Zone (see FireFox news release dated Mar. 22, 2019). The Sirkka Shear Zone provides the structural control for most known gold deposits in Central Lapland. In particular, the compilation has highlighted an interpreted contact zone that  is often characteristic of the gold deposits associated with the Sirkka structure. FireFox is now planning a drill program to test the northern part of the Jeesiö Project in October.

The Utsamo area of our Jeesiö Project is evolving into an exciting drill target,” commented Carl Löfberg, Chief Executive Officer of FireFox Gold Corp. “Results to date, from our multidisciplinary exploration program, have repeatedly focused us towards an important structural corridor that is believed to be a major control of gold deposition in the region.”

Integrated Exploration Program

The ongoing exploration program has been focused on the Utsamo target at Jeesiö. FireFox geologists have been conducting conventional prospecting and reconnaissance geological mapping in the area. The team has collected almost 200 samples of quartz veins and hydrothermally altered quartzite, including one sample that contained 4.6 g/t Au. This newly identified mineralization consists of strong sulfide-carbonate-altered quartzite. Follow-up sampling and trenching are currently underway in this southern portion of the Utsamo target area.

Approximately 3km north, the Company has identified a 2.8 km long structural feature, associated with numerous gold and geophysical anomalies. Results have now been received for detailed geochemical and geophysical surveys in addition to geological mapping of the area that was conducted during the summer of 2019.

A detailed Induced Polarization (IP) survey was conducted at the northern part of this 2.8 km long structural and geophysical feature. The area of interest is characterized by a band of low magnetism with discrete magnetic inliers that passes through more magnetic rocks. The results imply that the targeted structural corridor is characterized by low resistivity, and that the gold bearing Bottom-of-Till (BOT) samples are spatially associated with the sharp northeastern contact between low and high resistivity domains. This boundary is interpreted to represent the contact zone between hydrothermally altered metasediments and gabbroic sills – a common association of gold deposits in the region.

Much of the target area is covered by marshland where residual soils and till may not available for sampling. The FireFox team is assessing overburden geochemical methods to assist in targeting through the cover. As part of those tests, geologists collected approximately 103 samples along 6 lines across the targeted structure and submitted them for partial leach geochemistry and ultrasensitive analysis by Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS). The preliminary results of the partial leach geochemistry resemble the nearby BOT geochemistry, highlighting anomalous gold, copper, and other elements along the interpreted contact zones.

The new IP and geochemical results appear to be helpful in focusing the exploration along the nearly 3 km target corridor of metasediments and gabbro. FireFox geologists continue working in the area to enhance the focus and the targets for future drill testing.

FireFox expects to proceed with drill testing of targets in the northern part of the Jeesiö Project in October.

Methodology

The IP survey configuration applied at Jeesiö was double offset dipole-dipole 3D IP (2.5D data acquisition) with 40m receiver dipoles and 50m transmitter dipole. The receiver dipoles were moved along the survey lines (16 x 2 dipoles for two 640-metre lines) and all dipoles were active for every reading.

FireFox employs quality assurance practices to monitor the reliability of laboratory results. These practices include the insertion of analytical control samples into all laboratory submittals. Results reported here have complied with FireFox’s quality assurance standards. Labtium Laboratory Oy performed fire assay for gold on 25 g aliquots followed by ICP-OES determination (method 704P; detection limit 0.01ppm). Labtium Laboratory Oy is an independent facility accredited to the SFS-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard. The quality system of Labtium also complies with the requirements of the Standards Council of Canada (CAN-P-1579) “Guidelines for Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories”.

VANCOUVER, BC – (August 19, 2019) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has incorporated two new tenement blocks, collectively called the Kierinki Project (“Kierinki” or “the Project”) into its gold exploration portfolio in central Lapland, Finland. The Project covers 983.9 km2 (98,390 hectares) in the Kierinki Schist Belt and demonstrates geologic potential to host orogenic gold deposits but has never been the focus of detailed exploration.  The Project blocks are situated less than 30 km from the Company’s portfolio of over 500 km2 of gold projects in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt.   

“The addition of these two new large tenement blocks gives FireFox a dominant foothold in the Kierinki Schist Belt,” commented Carl Löfberg, CEO of FireFox. “Not only does this region host several prominent gold anomalies, but the Kierinki Schist Belt also exhibits similarities to other schist belts that host high-grade gold occurrences. Despite this, the region has been totally over-looked with respect to gold exploration.  We are very excited to begin prospecting the tenements later this field season,” added Mr. Löfberg.

FireFox also wishes to report that the Company will initiate a Phase 2 drill campaign at its Mustajärvi Gold Project in September 2019.  The campaign will consist of 5 to 7 drill holes, each of 200-300 metres depth.   Drilling will target the continuation of the high-grade zone that was discovered during the Phase 1 drill campaign in 2018, as highlighted by a 2 metre interval that assayed 45.1 g/t gold, including 0.5 metres grading 73.7 g/t gold (see FF press release dated January 21, 2019). In addition, numerous IP (Induced Polarization) targets identified in the 2018 field season will be targeted in the Phase 2 drill campaign (see FireFox press release dated September 25, 2018).

Kierinki Project Geology Overview

The newly granted exploration reservation notification for the two new tenement blocks covers the majority of the Kierinki Schist Belt, a Paleoproterozoic-aged volcano-sedimentary belt adjacent to the Central Lapland Granitoid Complex. The belt consists mainly of quartzites and sandstones together with minor mafic volcanic rocks. The whole rock package has been metamorphosed to low-pressure amphibolite facies.

The belt bears similarities to the northern parts of the Peräpohja Schist Belt – more specifically with the Rompas-Rajapalot area, where bonanza-grade gold occurrences have been discovered. Rompas-Rajapalot is located about 50 km south of Kierinki.

The Kierinki Schist Belt is one of the least studied schist belts in northern Finland. The area was first highlighted by the government-sponsored Nordkalott Project in the late 1980´s, when one of the strongest gold-in-till anomalies in Northern Fennoscandia was recorded. In spite of such observations, the Kierinki area has only seen reconnaissance studies by the Geological Survey of Finland and has never before been explored in detail. The results of these reconnaissance studies suggest that the Kierinki Schist Belt shares the geochemical characteristics of the Rompas-Rajapalot area to the south, characterized by high gold and cobalt. The geochemical anomalies at Kierinki are also similar to mineralization associated with the Sirkka Shear Zone in the north, where there is an association between gold and tellurium.

Importantly, these early studies also indicated that in samples from the Kierinki region, gold likely occurred as free gold, suggesting it was likely derived from weathering of quartz veins. The geochemical gold anomalies at Kierinki are associated with the faulted boundaries of structural blocks where the dominant structural grain is evidenced by major faults striking generally NNE or NNW.  This sort of structural control suggests the potential to host orogenic gold deposits in the area.  [The foregoing studies were reviewed by the Company but predate the guidelines of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects and the Company has not yet done the work necessary to verify any of this information.  These historical results should not be relied upon although the Company is of the opinion that these results are relevant to an understanding of the potential for the tenements and the area in general.] 

The FireFox team intends to initiate prospecting of the region later this field season.

VANCOUVER, BC – (July 29, 2019) – FireFox Gold Corp. (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced a new field program at its fully permitted Jeesiö Gold Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt in Finland. The program is directed at the major structure previously identified by the Company, which is thought to be the continuation of the Sirkka Shear Zone (see FireFox Gold Corp. news release dated Mar. 22, 2019). The Sirkka Shear Zone is the major deep crustal shear zone that provides the structural control for numerous gold deposits in Central Lapland.

The new program is focused on the Utsamo gold target at Jeesiö. At Utsamo, the Company has identified a 2.8 kilometre-long structurally distinct zone, associated with numerous gold anomalies in till, that follows the contact between mafic intrusive rocks and metasediments. This feature is believed to be the continuation of the Sirkka Shear Zone.  The prospectivity of the Utsamo target is highlighted by the discovery of a gold-bearing quartz vein system by another company about 1.7 km to the south-southeast, where several boulders and surface samples assayed as high as 74 g/t Au and 379 g/t Au (see Aurion Resources news release dated Feb. 12, 2019).  FireFox cautions that, while Aurion’s discovery indicates potential for the Utsamo target, Aurion’s results may not be indicative of the mineralization on FireFox’s Utsamo target.

A detailed IP survey will be conducted at the northern part of the 2.8 km long structurally distinct zone at Utsamo. FireFox previously completed ground magnetic surveys of the target area, including a second survey with additional 54 line-kilometres in late winter of this year.  The magnetic survey results will be combined with the IP results to delineate the drill hole collars for a drill program later this year. In addition, detailed sampling and analysis using MMI (Mobile Metal Ion) methodology will be conducted across the structure to help define future drill targets.   MMI is an advanced geochemical exploration technique well suited for aiding in the identification of buried mineral deposits.

At the southern part of Utsamo, the Firefox Gold field team has recently completed detailed targeting applying available geochemical and geophysical data together with a high-resolution LIDAR remote sensing survey. Several secondary-targets have been identified that will be subjected to detailed mapping and surface sampling.

VANCOUVER, BC – (Mar 22, 2019) – FireFox Gold Corp. (TSX-V: FFOX, FSE: A2PDU7) (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that new ground magnetic surveys have verified a major structure thought to be the continuation of the Sirkka Shear Zone through its Jeesiö gold project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB) of northern Finland. The Sirkka Shear Zone is the major deep crustal shear zone that provides the structural control for numerous gold deposits in Central Lapland.

Late last year FireFox outlined five promising new gold targets on the Jeesiö property based on results from its Bottom-of-Till (BOT) sampling program and a compilation of gold and geochemical data from historic sampling (See Company news release dated Dec. 27, 2018). The Company immediately prioritized the Utsamo and Homelampi targets for follow-up work and conducted ground magnetic surveys at both targets. At Utsamo, the survey results identified a 2.8 km long structurally distinct zone, associated with numerous  gold anomalies in till, that follows the contact between mafic intrusive rocks and metasediments. This feature is believed to be the continuation of the Sirkka Shear Zone (See Figure 1:  https://bit.ly/2YdaPlt ).

“We believe that our Utsamo Target occupies an important flexure in the Sirkka Shear Zone where it deflects from easterly to a southeasterly strike,” commented Carl Lofberg, CEO of FireFox Gold. “These types of large regional shear zones control many of the world-class orogenic gold districts throughout the world, and inflection points such as this often focus much of the tonnage and grade.”

The prospectivity of the Jeesiö Project, and the Utsamo Target particularly, is further highlighted by the discovery of a gold-bearing quartz vein system by another company, about 1.7 kilometres to the south-southeast (see Aurion Resources news release dated Feb. 12, 2019). A number of boulders and quartz vein surface samples from this area reportedly assayed as high as 74 g/t Au and 379 g/t Au. Both target areas appear to be related to the Sirkka Shear Zone (See Figure 2: https://bit.ly/2JslqpH ).

Dr. Richard Goldfarb, technical advisor to FireFox Gold, commented on the new interpretation: “Along a major structure, such as the Sirkka Shear Zone, areas of greater geological complexity, both structurally and lithologically, are favorable locations for mineralization. Gold-transporting fluids traveling along primary faults will be largely focused along curvilinear segments of the structures, where segments of this main structure are characterized by major bends where spaces are preferentially opened. The Utsamo Target represents the location of just such a flexure along the Sirkka Shear Zone.”

The Company is continuing its exploration activities at the Jeesiö Project. Additional ground magnetic surveys are ongoing and induced polarization (IP) surveys are planned to delineate drill targets for later this year. FireFox geologists have also prepared plans for the summer detailed mapping and sampling programs.

Additional details on the project are available from the Company’s website, here.

Methodology and Quality Assurance

The ground magnetic survey at Jeesiö NE included a total of 35 east-west oriented lines with lengths ranging between 1.0 and 1.8 kilometres.

VANCOUVER, BC – (Mar 1, 2019) – FireFox Gold Corp. (TSX-V: FFOX, FSE:A2PDU7) (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide final drill results and interpretation for its 1,094.5 metre Phase 1 drilling program on its 100%-owned Mustajärvi gold exploration project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland. 

The drill program was successful in achieving all of its goals: it confirmed the location and gold grades of historic drilling, discovered a new style of high-grade gold mineralization at greater depths than previously targeted, and encountered the first signs of mineralization spatially associated with the extensive IP anomaly identified in the Company´s earlier survey (see FireFox news release dated 25 September, 2018).

In addition to new targets at depth, mineralization at Mustajärvi remains open along strike. To date drilling has tested only 400 metres of the 2,900-metre-long potential trend identified by Bottom-of-Till (BOT) sampling anomalies and geophysical surveys. Gold mineralized veins were encountered both at western and eastern extremes of the drilled area. There are also indications from both surface work and core drilling of at least two different orientations of gold-bearing structures.

When we combine our geological, surface geochemical and geophysical data with our drill results, a very exciting picture emerges at the Mustajärvi Project,” commented Carl Löfberg, CEO of FireFox Gold. “We have only begun to test the different structural, lithological, and geophysical targets on the property. The high grades intersected so far at Mustajärvi in multiple geological settings are good first steps towards delineating a substantial high-grade gold deposit. We look forward to testing the wide range of targets with follow-up drilling later this year.”

Gold mineralized veins were encountered in 6 of the 8 holes drilled.  Highlights of the drill results include:

  • Hole 18MJ010 intersected a 2-metre-thick, massive pyrite zone from 125.5 metres down-hole that assayed 45.1 g/t gold (including 0.5 metres grading 73.7 g/t gold) (as reported in FireFox news release dated 21 January, 2019).
  • Drill holes 18MJ004 and 18MJ014 were drilled along the same section at the eastern tip of the known mineralization and yielded 1.15 m @ 3.6 g/t Au (43.3-44.45 m) and 1.55 m @ 2.9 ppm Au (65-66.55 m), respectively.
  • Drill holes 18MJ008 and 18MJ013 targeted a portion of the IP anomaly and were drilled approximately 100 metres west of known mineralization, yielding: 3.65m @ 0.97 g/t Au in 18MJ008 (19.5-23.5 m; includes significant core loss), and 0.7m @ 1.95 g/t Au (69.25-69.95 m) and 1.65m @ 0.89 g/t Au (143.85-145.5 m) in 18MJ013.
  • Significant gold intercepts at the project contain anomalous cobalt.

Drill Program Details

Initial results for the first four drill holes (18MJ001, 18MJ002, 18MJ007 and 18MJ010) are available in the Company’s news release dated 21 January, 2019, on the Company’s website and filed on SEDAR. The remaining four drill holes, reported in this release, were drilled along parallel sections to the east and west of the known mineralization.

Drill hole 18MJ004 tested mineralization reported by a 1990’s Outokumpu drill hole at the eastern border of the known extent of mineralization. This drill hole was collared approximately 15 metres to the SSW of historic hole KT/MF-7 but with a slightly different azimuth and plunge so that it should have passed within approximately 10 metres of Outokumpu’s mineralized interval.  Results from this hole confirmed the historically reported mineralization (KT/MJ-7: 1.4 m at 6.02 ppm Au) with an intercept of 1.15 m at 3.6 g/t Au at a down-hole depth of 43.3 m. Drill hole 18MJ014 was planned as a step-back hole for 18MJ004, targeting deeper extensions of the mineralized system. It intersected auriferous mineralization of 2.9 g/t Au over 1.55 m at a relatively shallow down-hole depth of 65 m. At greater depths, this hole intersected multiple veins with anomalous gold (including 0.7 m at 0.54 g/t Au at 90.7 m down-hole depth; and 1 m at 0.24 g/t Au at 130.15 m down-hole depth), further indicating the potential for deeper mineralization as identified in hole 18MJ010.

Hole 18MJ008 was located approximately 100 m west of the western-most Outokumpu drill hole, targeting surface BOT Au anomalies. The hole managed to confirm the BOT anomalies in the bedrock, intersecting 3.65m @ 0.97 g/t Au from 19.5 m depth, including core loss. Drill hole 18MJ013 was planned as a step-back hole to 18MJ008, located approximately 175 m SSE along the drilling section. Furthermore, it was a preliminary drill test of a portion of the previously reported IP anomaly at Mustajärvi. The hole intersected low grade mineralization including 0.7m @ 1.95 g/t Au from 69.25 m down hole and 1.65m @ 0.89 g/t Au from 143.85 m down hole, indicating the potential for mineralization along the fault zone and showing the first signs of mineralization spatially associated with the extensive IP anomaly.

Phase I Program Interpretations

Geology
The now completed phase 1 drill program allowed FireFox geologists to build a more detailed geological model for the gold mineralization at Mustajärvi. This model will provide a base for planning future drilling programs. The geology in the Mustajärvi area is dominated by the contact zone between the Sodankylä Group siliciclastic metasediments and the Savukoski Group ultramafic and mafic volcanics. This contact is usually gradational with mafic-ultramafic interlayers in the siliciclastic metasediments close to the contact zone. In hole 18MJ013 black schists interlayered with mafic tuffs have been observed near the contact zone. The contact zone is thought to provide a major control for the gold mineralization due to the competency contrast between the lithologies, auriferous veins generally following the contact zones between mafic-ultramafic volcanics and siliciclastic metasediments. The oriented drill core, combined with the surface mapping in trenches, has provided much more insight into the structural controls on mineralization. Much work remains on the structural geology, but the data suggest that some targets will require changes to the drilling direction.  

Alteration
Based on work to date, the rocks appear to be highly altered in the Mustajärvi area. There are indications of extensive distal alteration over the entire project area. In addition, FireFox geologists identified links between certain alteration assemblages and the different styles and tenor of mineralization, which can be now used as a vector for additional work.

Photos, maps, and additional details on the project are available from the Company’s website, www.firefoxgold.com.

Quality Assurance

The core was transported from the rig to the Company´s core storage facility in Sodankylä, where the geological and geotechnical logging was conducted, and assay intervals selected by FireFox´s exploration team. Intervals were generally 1 m but in some circumstances were modified according to lithological boundaries and other factors. FireFox geologists maintained chain of custody and sampling procedures reported in this news release according to best industry practice and with due attention to quality assurance and quality control, including the insertion of standard and blank samples. The logged core was then transported to Labtium Laboratory Oy in Sodankylä, Finland, where it was cut in half, with one half stored and the other half crushed, pulverized and split with a riffle splitter.

The lab performed fire assay for gold on 25 g aliquots followed by ICP-OES determination (method 704P; detection limit 0.01ppm). In addition, the lab reports a large suite of elements from a subsample that is digested in hot aqua regia, and analyzed by ICP-OES and ICP-MS (method 515PM). The multielement analyses are not completed at the time of this news release. Labtium Laboratory Oy is an independent facility accredited to the SFS-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standard. The quality system of Labtium also complies with the requirements of the Standards Council of Canada (CAN-P-1579) “Guidelines for Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories”.

VANCOUVER, BC – (Jan 21, 2019) – FireFox Gold Corp. (TSX-V: FFOX) (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide initial drill results for its 1,094.5 metre phase 1 drilling program on its 100%-owned Mustajärvi gold exploration project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland.

Highlights of the drill results include:

  • Hole 18MJ010 intersected a 2-metre-thick, massive pyrite zone from 125.5 metres down-hole that assayed 45.1 g/t gold (including 0.5 metres grading 73.7 g/t gold);
  • This 2-metre interval was part of a wider, strongly altered and mineralized zone that assayed 22.89 g/t gold over 3.95 metres. Overall, the mineralized interval spanned 5 metres, with the shoulder sections assaying below the Company’s 1 g/t gold high grade cutoff.

These first results confirm that gold mineralization at Mustajärvi occurs to a vertical depth of at least 100 metres. Historic drill results only went as deep as 40 metres vertically. The results indicate that both the grade and apparent width of the gold mineralization is greater at depth. True widths are not yet known but will be confirmed with additional drilling and geological modeling following the program. The results from the first four holes of the program are summarized in Table 1, below. 

“Intersecting a significant interval of high-grade gold at depth on our very first drill program corroborates our new geologic interpretation at Mustajärvi,” commented Carl Löfberg, CEO of FireFox Gold. “We intend to continue directly into a second phase of drilling as part of our overall strategy to explore the gold potential of the highly prospective Central Lapland Greenstone Belt.” 

Drill Program Details

The recently completed 1,094.5-metre phase-1 diamond core drilling program was designed to: 1) verify the quality of historical drilling and assays; 2) drill test extensions of known gold mineralization at depth and along strike, and; 3) to drill test the recently identified geophysical (IP and magnetics) anomalies associated with the Mustajärvi shear zone (see FireFox news release dated 25 September, 2018). The assay results for the first four drill holes 18MJ001, 18MJ002, 18MJ007, and 18MJ010, totaling 410.25 metres, are summarized in Table 1. Assay Results from the remaining 4 drill holes are pending.

Drill holes 18MJ002 and 18MJ010 targeted potential down dip extensions beneath the small historical artisanal mining pit. Borehole 18MJ002 was most proximal to the pit and drilled to only 82 metres. That hole intersected several zones of gold mineralization, averaging from 1.87 to 11.63 g/t gold.  Drill hole 18MJ010 was collared approximately 70 metres southwest of 18MJ002 and extends to a depth of almost 155 metres. It was the first attempt to test the deeper extents of the Mustajärvi mineralization, as the historical drilling tested only the topmost 40 metres.

The geology of drill hole 18MJ010 was dominantly altered metavolcanics rocks of intermediate to mafic composition. The host rocks are strongly albitized with variable silica and carbonate alteration. At 87 to 90 metres down hole, a quartz-pyrite-tourmaline vein yielded 1.6 g/t gold over 0.5 metres, but there was substantial core loss. At 100 to 130 metres down hole, there was strong albite with variable quartz-carbonate alteration. A massive 2-metre-thick pyrite interval between 125.5 and 127.5 metres down-hole hosts 45.1 g/t gold (including 0.5 metres of 73.7 g/t gold). This was situated in the middle of a wider and strongly altered and mineralized unit that assayed 18.1 g/t gold over 5 metres with the shoulder sections assaying below the Company’s 1 g/t gold high grade cutoff.

Drill hole 18MJ002 targeted shallow historical mineralization beneath the artisanal pit and intersected a 7.5-metre-wide zone (29 m to 36.5 m) of intense clay alteration including strongly oxidized quartz-pyrite-tourmaline veins. This interval closely resembles the outcropping surface mineralization previously reported. The drilling suffered core loss, but still yielded 4.1 metres averaging 1.87 g/t gold, including a high-grade intercept of 0.35 metres averaging 11.63 g/t gold consisting of a quartz-pyrite-tourmaline vein. Further downhole, two quartz-pyrite-tourmaline-carbonate veins were also intersected from 62.7 m to 63.5 m and from 77.9 m to 78.6 m, with the upper vein  yielding 0.8m at 3.96 g/t gold. There is broad alteration halo observed in the intermediate host rock that hosts these veins, characterized by strong albitization and carbonization alteration with more localized intense sericitization and tourmalinization. This drill hole intersected the same rock interval as reported in Outokumpu’s historic drill records, and exhibits similar gold grades to the historic drilled intercept.

Two other drill holes 18MJ001 and 18MJ007 suffered significant core loss adjacent to quartz-pyrite-tourmaline–rich veins and did not yield significant gold intervals. Most of the core from these drill holes is also highly altered, exhibiting strong albitization and carbonatization and abundant quartz-albite-carbonate veining with elevated magnetite and hematite.

The drilling program was completed in a timely manner despite harsh winter conditions on-site. All core was NQ2 or NQ3 size and was oriented during drilling. The contractor was Arctic Drilling Company Ltd., a distinguished drilling-company based in Rovaniemi, Finland.

VANCOUVER, BC – (Jan 15, 2019) – FireFox Gold Corp. (TSX-V: FFOX) (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the first exploration results from its highly prospective Seuru Gold Project (“Seuru”) within the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland.  FireFox’s 2018 field program at Seuru included a prospecting and surface sampling program at the Selkä Property, situated 10 km E-SE of the Kittilä Mine, Europe’s largest primary gold producer1.  Results of sampling in this area were integrated with historic exploration results from the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) and Outokumpu Oy, resulting in the identification of two broadly SSE-NNW-trending gold-mineralized zones associated with hydrothermally altered graphitic tuffs (see Figure 1: https://bit.ly/2SUDo46):

  • The 1-km-long eastern zone, named Selkä-E, is characterized by sericite alteration and resistivity lows;
  • The western 1.4-km-long Selkä-W zone is characterized by sericite and carbonate alteration and co-incident geophysical anomalies; a magnetic high and a resistivity low.

“We are very excited about these preliminary results on the Selkä Property,” commented Carl Löfberg, CEO and Director of FireFox Gold. “The FireFox team is currently planning a ground magnetic survey, which is to be followed eventually by Induced Polarization (IP) surveys over both the Selkä-E and Selkä-W mineralized zones. Based on the results of these detailed geophysical surveys, the team will design the first phase of drill testing.”

FireFox has submitted an application for a 471.62-hectare exploration permit within the 2,267-hectare Selkä reservation area. The exploration permit will allow more intensive field work, such as drilling. 

Geology and Program Details 

The Selkä area is underlain by the same types of meta-volcanic and meta-sedimentary rocks that host Agnico Eagle’s Kittilä Mine, which contains approximately four million ounces in remaining gold reserves2. These rocks consist mainly of mafic to intermediate meta-volcanic rocks, graphite-sulfide-bearing cherts and tuffs. Gold mineralization occurs within quartz-sulfide-carbonate veins or within pervasively altered host rocks. Hydrothermal alteration related to gold transportation and deposition has resulted in intense sericitization, carbonation, and albitization of the supracrustal sequences. The Selkä area is characterized by numerous SSE-NNW and N-S trending bands of mafic volcanic and graphitic chert that are clearly visible in geophysical images. These, together with generally E-W and ENE-WSW striking faults, are believed to provide the major structural control on gold transportation and deposition in the area.

Exploration was initially drawn to the region as a result of an extensive – 20 km long – regional gold-in-till anomaly that extends from the Kittilä Mine to the Selkä area. Between 2002 and 2009, the GTK invested an estimated US $700,000 in several phases of exploration. That work included prospecting, geological mapping, Bottom-of-Till sampling, geophysical surveys, and reconnaissance diamond core drilling. The results generated numerous gold showings in the Selkä area.

Significant highlights from these historic results include:

  • Till samples with grades up to 0.47g/t Au at Selkä-E.
  • Short reconnaissance drill intersections: 1 metre averaging 2.42 g/t Au; 1 metre averaging 3.06 g/t Au; and 1 metre averaging 1.43 g/t Au at Selkä-E.
  • At Selkä-W, samples from a total of 1,133 metres of trenching yielded high gold grades. Continuous channel samples across goethite-carbonate-quartz or pure quartz-veins yielded 1 metre averaging 4.0 g/t Au; 1 metre averaging 6.16 g/t Au, and 3 metres averaging 28.2 g/t Au (or 6 m @ 14.3 g/t Au).
  • Individual chip samples from trenches returned values up to 6.75 g/t Au, 15.2 g/t Au, and 27.9 g/t Au from the same goethite-carbonate-quartz veins at Selkä-W.
  • These high-grade zones encountered in Selkä W were not drill tested.

Historic exploration results may not reflect FireFox’s actual exploration results. FireFox has not yet done sufficient work to verify the historical sampling discussed here. While the Company believes the data were generated professionally and consistently with good practice of the day, unverified historic results are not to be relied upon. These historic drill hole, trench, and rock sample results are cited to indicate the potential character of gold mineralization in this part of the CLGB. 

During summer 2018, the FireFox team commenced a sampling program on the Selkä mineral exploration reservations area and collected and analyzed 112 grab samples, 283 till samples (using a portable Cobra percussion drill), and 19 heavy mineral samples. Detrital gold grains recovered from the heavy mineral samples are frequently angular and mottled, implying short glacial transportation distances.

As part of this program, FireFox geologists collected grab samples of quartz-sericite-goethite altered material from float in the vicinity of the covered historic GTK trenches. The FireFox grab samples yielded up to 4 g/t Au.

Quality Assurance

The rock samples are typically 1 to 2 kg chip samples from the freshest rock that was achievable at each site. FireFox team members transported the samples to an ALS sample prep lab in Sodankylä. The samples were first crushed to -2 mm, split and pulverized, before being shipped to a facility in Ireland for gold, platinum, and palladium analysis by lead collection fire assay of 30 gm aliquots with ICP-AES finish. Other elements, altogether 48, were measured after four-acid digestion by ICP-AES and ICP-MS (ME-MS61 package). ALS Laboratories is a leading international provider of assay and analytical data to the mining industry. All ALS geochemical hub laboratories, including the Irish facility, are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 for specific analytical procedures. The Firefox QA/QC program consists of insertion of certificated standard material and blanks into the analytical batches, which did not show deviations from recommended values.

In addition, historical gold assays and the available associated information on analytical methods and QA/QC protocols were retrieved from the public GTK database (http://en.gtk.fi/) and reviewed prior to incorporation into the Seuru/Selkä database. These data are believed to be of good quality and suitable for reconnaissance work. While not certain of the quality assurance and quality control measures in place by the GTK at the time, the Company is not aware of any other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data disclosed in this news release.

VANCOUVER, BC – (Jan 3, 2019) – FireFox Gold Corp. (TSX-V: FFOX) (“FireFox” or the “Company”) is pleased to report new results from its 2018 field program at its 100%-owned Mustajärvi Gold Project (“Mustajärvi” or the “Project”) in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland. Sampling along two intersecting mineralized structures has identified high-grade gold. This expands the range of possible drill targets as well as the overall size potential of the gold system.  

FireFox geologists collected a total of 108 samples at Mustajärvi during the 2017 and 2018 field seasons. This included 66 grab samples from glacial erratic boulders and rocks excavated from a small historic pit on the property, and 42 chip channel samples collected along, and perpendicular to, exposed veins and structures. Gold values in the grab samples ranged from <0.005 to 79.8 grams per tonne (g/t), with 16 samples grading above 1 g/t Au, including 10 samples grading above 10 g/t Au.  Chip channel sampling along one portion of the 0.2 to 1.0m wide vein system yielded consistent mineralization along strike for at least 45 metres, averaging 21.6 g/t Au and ranging from 0.66 to 140.5 g/t Au.

The channel sampling also identified high grade gold along a northwest striking cross structure, expanding the range of possible drill targets and size potential of the Mustajärvi gold system.

Carl Lofbërg, FireFox’s CEO, commented on the new results, “Our work at Mustajärvi has moved swiftly, thanks in part to the excellent access and shallow overburden, but the team has done an incredible job to advance the historical prospect to be FireFox’s first drill target. In addition to the several historic drill intercepts containing more than 12 g/t Au reported in our technical report, we now have strong gold mineralization at surface of up to 140.5 g/t Au along two intersecting structures. We look forward to learning more from our first round of core drilling, which has already commenced.”     

The average depth of glacial cover at the Project is relatively thin, averaging less than 3 metres based on the 2018 Base-of-Till sampling program (see Company news release dated July 12, 2018). Overburden is much thinner in some areas. The bedrock geology and some gold-bearing veins at Mustajärvi have been exposed in a pit resulting from historic small-scale artisanal mining. The field crew further exposed the quartz-tourmaline-pyrite veins by removing the overburden along strike for approximately 50 metres so that the structures could be mapped and sampled in detail. Geologists used percussion drills to collect chip samples in fresh outcrop, whereas they employed shovels, hammers, and chisels to collect samples in the weathered rock and gossanous material (iron oxides likely resulting from the oxidation of sulfide minerals).

The primary structure (Trend 1) hosts one or more narrow veins (pinching and swelling between 0.2 and 1.0 metres wide) that strike northeast. Geologists sampled the structure along 45 metres of strike, at regular sample intervals of 1.0 to 4.0 metres. In the 33 samples taken from Trend 1, gold values range from <0.005 to 140.5 g/t Au with an average grade of 10.84 g/t Au. This grouping includes lower grade samples taken from the wallrock on either side of the vein. Several samples along the vein returned assays of more than 10 g/t Au.  Most of the samples were oxidized, which could result in increased gold concentrations. However, the grades are consistent with those observed in historical drilling at the property by Outokumpu (see FireFox’s “2018 Technical (N.I. 43-101) Report on the Mustajärvi Property” filed on SEDAR or on the Company’s website).

Another structure (Trend 2) appears to intersect the primary gold-hosting vein in the western portion of the small pit. This structure strikes northwest and also appears to host a vein, but the rock is so deeply altered and weathered that it is impossible to determine the fresh lithology and mineralogy. The 9 samples collected along this structure were dominantly gossan, and gold values range from 0.05 to 7.91 g/t Au. The average grade was 2.05 g/t Au. The presence of such high gold grades in this crosscutting vein is a good indication that mineralized veins run in multiple directions, which could significantly increase the dimensions and volumes of the mineralization. The historical drilling at Mustajärvi did not test this northwest striking system.

In addition to a suite of pathfinder elements that is often associated with orogenic gold systems, the Mustajärvi mineralization includes elevated values of cobalt, ranging from 28.1 to 2,670 ppm in mineralized samples. Several historical mines in Lapland reported highly anomalous cobalt values associated with gold-copper mineralization[1].

FireFox geologists collected significant information from the 2017 and 2018 field seasons that can be used to guide drill testing of historic and new drill targets. The structural measurements taken in the pit and these new excavations help to clarify the controls on the known gold mineralization, and the geophysical surveys (See Company news release dated Sept 25, 2018) identified possibly important structural intersections and deeper sulfide targets. 

The Mustajärvi Project is fully permitted, and the first round of diamond core drilling has already commenced. The Company expects to report its first drill results during Q1 of 2019.

Additional details on the project are available from the Company’s website, www.firefoxgold.com.
