Cabral Gold Drills 13.0m @ 4.6 g/t Gold Including 1.0m @ 49.2 g/t Gold within Gold-in-Oxide Blanket at the PDM Target, Cuiú Cuiú District

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 21, 2022) – Cabral Gold Inc. (TSXV: CBR) (OTC PINK: CBGZF) (“Cabral” or the Company“) is pleased to provide assay results from nine additional RC holes drilled to test the recently identified gold-in-oxide blanket at the PDM target within the Cuiú Cuiú Gold District, northern Brazil.

Highlights are as follows:

  • RC310 returned the following mineralized intervals:
    • 13.0m @ 0.3 g/t gold from surface in oxidized and weathered material
    • 13.0m @ 4.6 g/t gold from 25.0m in oxide material, including 1.0m @ 49.2 g/t gold from 34.0m
  • RC313 returned 17.0m @ 1.1 g/t gold from surface in oxidized and weathered material
  • Other significant drill results from oxidized and weathered material at PDM include;
    • RC309: 33.0m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface including 10.0m @ 0.8 g/t gold from 23.0m
    • RC308: 27.0m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface
    • RC307: 15.0m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface
    • RC311: 11.0m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface
    • RC314: 15.0m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface

Alan Carter, Cabral’s President and CEO commented, “These latest RC results from the PDM target further demonstrate the presence of a higher-grade core within the unconsolidated oxide blanket, but perhaps more importantly they indicate the possible presence of a second primary mineralized zone in the underlying basement granitic rocks. This may be sub-parallel to the zone of primary gold mineralization previously identified below the oxide blanket, and announced just a few months ago. These results lend further credence to the notion that PDM, like Machichie, is a significant new discovery which will require further drilling.”

PDM RC Drill Results

The PDM (Pau de Merenda) target is located 2.5km NW of the Central gold deposit at Cuiú Cuiú (Figure 1) within a prominent northwest-trending gold-in-soil anomaly and co-incident magnetic low, which have been traced for over 5km along strike. Within this anomaly, referred to as the Central Trend, occur the Central gold deposit, Central SE target, Central North target, Mutum target and PDM target.

The gold-in-oxide blanket at PDM was initially identified in August 2021 (see press release dated August 10, 2021), and a program of diamond drilling which was initiated in late 2021 subsequently identified an underlying zone of primary gold mineralization in the unweathered granitic basement rocks similar to that at MG and Central.

Results from the initial diamond-drill holes in unweathered granitic basement rocks beneath the gold-in-oxide blanket at PDM included 22.4m @ 4.8 g/t, including 1.35m @ 62.0 g/t gold in DDH238; 11.9m @ 3.3 g/t gold including 0.5m @ 16.1 g/t gold and 1.2m @ 16.0 g/t gold in DDH239; and 18.0m @ 2.5 g/t gold from 92.0m, including 3.0m @ 10.5 g/t gold in DDH275. (see press releases dated December 15, 2021, January 12, 2022 and April 28, 2022). These diamond-drill results define a northwest-trending zone of primary gold mineralization in the granitic rocks directly underlying the PDM oxide blanket.

The current RC drilling program at PDM has been designed to further define the limits of a higher-grade core within the overlying gold-in-oxide blanket, and has confirmed the presence of this higher-grade core area.

RC310 returned 13.0m @ 0.3 g/t gold from surface in oxidized and weathered blanket material and 13.0m @ 4.6 g/t gold from 25.0m in oxide material, including 1.0m @ 49.2 g/t gold from 34.0m (Figure 2, Table 1). This material appears to be weathered and oxidized saprolite basement mineralization. This hole is located on the edge of a higher-grade core 4.5 gram x meter contour within the overall oxidized mineralized zone, and suggests that the higher-grade core of the oxide mineralization may be more extensive than previously thought. It also indicates that there may be additional mineralized structures in the underlying basement granitic rocks further to the northwest, and parallel to the mineralized zone that was previously announced. Diamond drilling has not yet tested for fresh basement mineralization beneath the oxide mineralization this far north at PDM.

Note that RC310, which returned 13m @ 4.6 g/t gold, is currently on the edge of the high-grade core to the oxide blanket defined by the 4.5 g x m contour. The underlying zones of primary mineralization in intrusive rocks as currently interpreted are also shown in yellow

RC313 was drilled in the center of the higher-grade core within the blanket and returned 17.0m @ 1.1 g/t gold from surface in oxidized and weathered material (Figure 2, Table 1).

Other significant drill results within the gold-in-oxide blanket at PDM (Figure 2, Table 1) include;

  • RC309: 33.0m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface, including 10.0m @ 0.8 g/t gold from 23.0m
    • RC308: 27.0m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface
    • RC307: 15.0m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface
    • RC311: 11.0m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface
