Inventus Drilling Extends Mineralization at 007

CBJ Newsmakers

TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Inventus Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE: IVS) (“Inventus” or the “Company”) announces it has received the remaining assays for its recent drill program at the 100% owned Pardo Paleoplacer Gold Project (“Pardo”) near Sudbury, Ontario. A total of 35 holes at the 007 Zone were completed including 7 step out holes (see Figure 1), which are reported below.

Hole ID From
Gold Grade (g/t)
007-18-30 8.83 10.1 1.27 0.99
007-18-31 3.25 5.5 2.25 7.89
Including 3.25 4.03 0.78 21.2
007-18-32 4.54 7.7 3.16 2.59
Including 5.31 7.15 1.84 4.14
007-18-33 4.15 8.62 4.47 0.85
Including 5.78 6.38 0.6 3.66

Holes 29 and 34 did not encounter significant values, and hole 35 was not completed. All holes were drilled vertically. Intercept lengths are true thickness. Gold grades are determined by fire assay and gravimetric methods; see note on Technical Information.

The objective of this drill program was to provide drill data for the next phase of bulk sampling and demonstrate continuity of the mineralized conglomerate. The first 28 closely spaced drill holes (released on Nov 22, 2018) delineated a volume of approximately 6,000 tonnes of mineralized material (see the 007 Bulk Sample Outline on Figure 1).

Step out holes 31, 32 and 33 have all demonstrated that the mineralized boulder conglomerate reef extends towards the north under shallow cover. These new holes combined with previous drilling supports our interpretation that a highly enriched mineralized boulder conglomerate reef extends for 350 m North from the 007 Zone.

Technical Information

The samples in this release were transported in secure sealed bags for preparation and assay by Agat Laboratories located in Mississauga, Ontario. A standard or a blank was inserted every 20 samples or less. The samples reported were crushed in their entirety to 75% passing -10 mesh, with one 1 kg subsamples split and pulverized to 85% passing -200 mesh. Two 50-gram aliquots were taken for fire assay (FA) with an atomic absorption (AA) finish. Results higher than 10 g/t were re-analyzed with a gravimetric finish.

Forward-Looking Statements

This News Release includes certain “forward-looking statements” which are not comprised of historical facts. Forward-looking statements include estimates and statements that describe the Company’s future plans, objectives or goals, including words to the effect that the Company or management expects a stated condition or result to occur. Forward-looking statements may be identified by such terms as “believes”, “anticipates”, “expects”, “estimates”, “may”, “could”, “would”, “if”, “yet”, “potential”, “undetermined”, “objective”, or “plan”. Since forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Although these statements are based on information currently available to the Company, the Company provides no assurance that actual results will meet management’s expectations.

Forward looking information in this news release includes, but is not limited to, the Company’s objectives, goals or future plans, statements, exploration results, potential mineralization, the estimation of mineral resources, exploration and mine development plans, timing of the commencement of operations and estimates of market conditions. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking information include, but are not limited to the failure to identify mineral resources, failure to convert estimated mineral resources to reserves, the inability to complete a feasibility study which recommends a production decision, the preliminary nature of metallurgical test results, delays in obtaining or failures to obtain required governmental, environmental or other project approvals, political risks, inability to fulfill the duty to accommodate First Nations and other indigenous peoples, uncertainties relating to the availability and costs of financing needed in the future, changes in equity markets, inflation, changes in exchange rates, fluctuations in commodity prices, delays in the development of projects, capital and operating costs varying significantly from estimates and the other risks involved in the mineral exploration and development industry, and those risks set out in the Company’s public documents filed on SEDAR. Although the Company believes that the assumptions and factors used in preparing the forward-looking information in this news release are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on such information, which only applies as of the date of this news release, and no assurance can be given that such events will occur in the disclosed time frames or at all.
