Vancouver, British Columbia – July 29, 2021 – Cabral Gold Inc. (“Cabral” or the “Company”) (TSXV: CBR) (OTC: CBGZF) is pleased to provide additional assay results from four recently completed diamond drill holes and four RC holes as the Company continues with infill drilling at the primary MG gold deposit, and the recently identified gold-in-oxide blanket within the Cuiú Cuiú gold district in northern Brazil.
Highlights are as follows:
- DDH-218 drilled at MG returned 63.5m @ 0.9 g/t gold from 53.5m depth including 0.5m @ 12.7 g/t gold, 0.5m @ 13.1 g/t gold and 0.5m @ 16.2 g/t gold. This intercept is the continuation of the zone intersected in hole CC-53 which returned 71.5m @ 3.5 g/t gold including 1m @ 216.4 g/t gold
- Twenty-one additional short RC holes have been completed at MG in order to test the extent of the recently discovered gold-in-oxide blanket. Results were obtained on three additional holes and include 75m @ 0.4 g/t gold in RC-69, 33m @ 0.7 g/t gold in RC-100 and 24m @ 0.8 g/t gold in RC-91
- Results are currently pending on 17 additional RC holes at MG. A total of 2,900m and 34 holes of the original planned 5,000m 70-hole program have been completed to date at the gold-in-oxide blanket at MG. The drill program is continuing
Alan Carter, Cabral’s President and CEO commented, “Additional diamond drilling at the MG gold deposit continues to systematically intersect significant gold intersections and define the extent of the high-grade zones within the MG gold deposit. Furthermore, the latest RC holes from the gold-in-oxide blanket at MG continue to suggest the continuity of excellent grades in near surface unconsolidated material and the presence of a significant gold deposit overlying the primary MG gold deposit. With the decision to expand the current number of drill rigs from three to five with the addition of two more diamond drill rigs, we look forward to a very exciting next 12 months”.
MG Diamond Drilling
Assay results were returned on four additional diamond-drill holes (DDH-217, DDH-218, DDH-219 and DDH-220), which were recently completed at the MG gold deposit. The current diamond-drill program is designed to define the limits to the high-grade zones within the existing MG and Central deposits at Cuiú Cuiú.

Hole DDH-218 was drilled in the western portion of the MG deposit on the same section (552995), as DDH-203 and CC-53 which previously returned 71.5m @ 3.5 g/t gold including 1m @ 216.4 g/t gold. DDH-218 was drilled down-dip of CC-53 in a southerly direction and returned 63.5m @ 0.9 g/t gold from 53.5m depth including 0.5m @ 12.7 g/t gold from 57.7m depth, 0.5m @ 13.1 g/t gold from 76.5m depth and 0.5m @ 16.2 g/t gold from 81.0m depth. The two lower high-grade intercepts returned from hole DDH-218 likely correlate with the very high-grade drill intercept of 1m @ 216.4 g/t gold returned from CC-53 indicating continuity of the high-grade zone in this part of the MG deposit.

Holes DDH-217 and DDH-219 were drilled on the same section (554080) located in the eastern portion of the MG deposit. The holes were designed to follow up on previous holes drilled in the same section such as CC-79 which returned 12.4m @ 5.3 g/t gold and 37.3m @ 0.87 g/t gold and DDH-201 which intersected 7.8m @ 4.7 g/t gold. DDH-219 was drilled down dip of DDH-201 and returned 10.9m @ 0.8 g/t gold whilst DDH-217 was drilled up dip of DDH-201 and returned 4.5m @ 0.3 g/t gold. These results confirm the down-dip continuity of the mineralized zone at the eastern end of the deposit and suggest the mineralized zone is widening at depth (Figure 3).

DDH-220 was drilled on section 553316, 320m east of DDH-218. It was a short hole drilled to a depth of 46.5m and was designed to test the extent of the gold-in-oxide blanket at this location. It returned 12.3m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface.

MG RC Drilling
The RC drilling program testing the recently identified gold-in-oxide blanket overlying the primary MG deposit is making rapid progress. Of the original 70-hole 5,000m RC drilling program designed to fully identify the extent of this mineralized zone, a total of 2,900m in 34 holes have been completed to date. Assay results on three holes (RC-69, RC-91, RC-100) are reported herein and assay results are pending on an additional 18 holes.
Holes RC-69 and RC100 were drilled on the same section (553390) in the central part of the gold-in-oxide blanket (Figure 4). Hole RC-69 was drilled from north to south and returned 75m @ 0.4 g/t gold from surface and an additional 29m @ 0.7 g/t gold in the underlying bedrock including 4m @ 3.4 g/t gold. Hole RC-100 was drilled on the same section and direction but 40m further north and similarly intersected a thick interval of mineralization, 33m @ 0.7 g/t gold from surface. The hole also intersected 18m @ 0.7 g/t gold further down the hole from 77m depth in the underlying bedrock. The holes also intersected multiple zones of primary gold mineralization in the underlying bedrock.

RC-91 was drilled on section 553316, the same section as DDH-220, and returned 24m @ 0.8 g/t gold from surface. This section is located in the central part of what is currently known to be the extent of the gold-in-oxide blanket.
These additional RC drill results continue to confirm the remarkable continuity and consistency of the gold-in-oxide blanket in terms of both aerial extent and thickness as well as gold grade.
