Thunder Bay, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – May 2, 2022) – White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (FSE: CGK1) (OTC Pink: TNMLF) (“White Metal” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the final assay results from Phase 3 diamond drilling at the Tower Mountain Gold Project (“Tower Gold” or the “Project” or the “Property”). Tower Gold is located about 50 km west of the port city of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. To date, White Metal has completed three phases of drilling totalling 10,813 m in 48 holes.
- TM-22-135: intersected 466.5 m averaging 0.51 g/t Au, including 267.0 m averaging 0.708 g/t Au.
- TM-22-135: the deepest hole to date, ended in mineralization at 485.0 metres.
- TM-22-134: intersected 58.5 m averaging 0.750 g/t Au.
- TM-22-126: intersected 30.0 m averaging 0.645 g/t Au.
Significant results from Phase 3 drilling are summarized in Table 1 and a plan map showing the location of drill holes and the various gold zones is provided in Figure 1. Details of the drilling and associated results are available at the Company’s website (www.whitemetalres.com/tower-mountain-au.html).
Scott Jobin Bevans, interim CEO notes, “These latest results continue to demonstrate that the Tower Mountain Gold Project has a significant gold endowment with excellent potential to identify a large tonnage, low grade, multi-million ounce gold discovery, similar to what has been established elsewhere within the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt (SBG). We believe the gold potential of the SBG was largely ignored due to the low-grade nature of known occurrences. Both Malartic and Detour Lake are multi-million ounce projects with average grade of less than 1.0 g/t gold. Our drilling to date at Tower Gold has established low-grade gold mineralization for over 2,500 metres along strike, across an average 300 metres width, to depths in excess of 300 metres. Our 2021-22 Phase 3 drilling program successfully extended the known strike and down-dip extent of the low grade envelope and surface prospecting in 2021 identified numerous gold targets within the claim boundary that are, as yet, untested. We believe the Tower Mountain Gold Project is a compelling exploration opportunity in an emerging gold camp.”
Mineralization hosted by established operations and other exploration projects is not necessarily indicative of mineralization occurring within the Company’s Property.

Company quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) standards and blanks were inserted into the sample stream for all sample types (drill core samples and surface rock grab samples) and submitted for analysis by Activation Laboratories Ltd. (Actlabs) in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Samples were transported under the direct supervision of senior White Metal personnel and delivered from the Property to the laboratory receiving facilities. Samples were analyzed for Au by Fire Assay with an AA finish and Au – Fire Assay with Gravimetric finish. Actlabs is an independent commercial laboratory that is ISO 9001 certified and ISO 17025 accredited.
About Tower Mountain Gold Project
The Tower Mountain Project comprises patented and unpatented claims covering about 1,968 ha, within the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt, an emerging gold district in northwestern Ontario with established multi-million ounce resources elsewhere within the SGB. The Project is located about 50 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Paved highways offer year-round access to the Property and line distributed hydro is available 5 km from the Project. The port city of Thunder Bay is the gateway to northwestern Ontario, offering significant infrastructure, and has long supported mineral exploration throughout the region. Tower Gold is interpreted to be an intrusive-associated disseminated gold deposit and as such offers excellent Tier One asset discovery potential.
