Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 8, 2021) – Cabral Gold Inc. (TSXV: CBR) (OTC PINK: CBGZF) (“Cabral” or the “Company“) is pleased to provide assay results from two recently completed diamond drill holes and four RC holes at the MG gold deposit, within the Cuiú Cuiú gold district in northern Brazil. Results continue to show higher grades in basement zones as well as strong gold mineralization within the weathered, oxide cover sequence.
Highlights are as follows:
- DDH-215 drilled at MG returned 17.6m @ 4.1 g/t gold from 149.0m depth including 4.3m @ 11.3 g/t gold and 18.1m @ 4.3 g/t gold from 198.9m depth including 1.0m @ 45.1 g/t gold. Both intercepts were returned from the sub-vertically dipping MG gold deposit which underlies the recently identified gold-in-oxide blanket
- The second significant intercept of 18.1m @ 4.3 g/t gold returned from DDH-215 appears to be a new footwall zone, located south of the main MG gold deposit that has not been encountered in previous holes
- Drill results from four RC holes (RC65-RC68) drilled on the same section at MG and 300m to the west of DDH-215, returned encouraging results in gold-in-oxide blanket and saprolitized, oxidized basement material, including 51m @ 0.8 g/t gold from surface in RC-65, 75m @ 0.6 g/t gold from surface in RC-66 (of which 47m was gold-bearing oxide blanket material), and 18m @ 1.4 g/t gold from surface in RC-68 which also returned 20m @ 0.9 g/t gold from 24m depth
Alan Carter, Cabral’s President and CEO commented, “The latest diamond-drill results from the MG gold deposit confirm that we have significant high-grade mineralization at depth within the main MG gold deposit and a new zone of high-grade mineralization in the footwall which has not been previously encountered. Furthermore, recent results from four RC holes drilled on a north-south section 300m west of where we recently intercepted 60m @ 3.5 g/t gold, confirm that the overlying gold-in-oxide blanket is extensive and of good grade. These results continue to demonstrate that we have significant zones of high-grade gold mineralization at depth at MG and excellent widths and grades of near surface oxide material in the overlying gold-in-oxide blanket.”
MG Diamond Drilling
Assay results were returned on two additional diamond-drill holes (DDH-215 and DDH-216), which were recently completed at MG as part of the current diamond-drill program designed to define the limits to the high-grade zones within the existing MG and Central deposits at Cuiú Cuiú. Both holes were drilled on the same section (553610), which is located 50m west of section 553655, where recently reported diamond-drill holes, DDH208, DDH209, DDH210 and DDH211 were drilled (Figure 1) (see press releases dated April 15 and April 29, 2021).
DDH-214 which recently returned 60m @ 3.5 g/t gold including 2.6m @ 64.6 g/t gold from 40m depth was drilled 50m to the east of section 553655.
DDH-215 and DDH-216 were both drilled from north to south and were designed to test the up-dip and down-dip continuity of the main zone of high-grade basement mineralization previously intercepted at depth in DDH-202 (see press release dated January 20, 2020), which returned 14.2m @ 6.7 g/t gold, and in hole CC-50 which intersected 36m @ 2.0 g/t gold (Table 1, Figure 2).
DDH-215 was drilled approximately 40m north of DDH-202, and returned 17.6m @ 4.1 g/t gold from 149.0m depth including 4.3m @ 11.3 g/t gold from 149.0m (Table 1, Figure 2) which is interpreted to be the same mineralized zone that was encountered last year in DDH-202 and in hole CC-50.
In addition to the above intercept, DDH-215 also intercepted a second mineralized zone at depth which returned 18.1m @ 4.3 g/t gold from 198.9m depth including 1.0m @ 45.1 g/t gold from 210.5m (Table 1, Figure 2). This zone appears to be a new footwall zone, located south of the main MG gold deposit that had not been encountered in earlier holes.
DDH-216 was drilled approximately 25m south of DDH-202 and returned 39m @ 0.3 g/t gold from 2m depth including 19.0m @ 0.5 g/t gold from 16.0m depth in the overlying gold-in-oxide blanket before intersecting 9.0m @ 1.0 g/t gold at 81.0m depth which is interpreted to be the up-dip extension of the main MG deposit (Table 1, Figure 2).

MG RC Drilling
As reported on May 19, 2021, following the identification of the significant gold-in-oxide mineralized blanket at MG, the larger RC rig has been re-assigned to drill off the near surface gold-bearing mineralized blanket and has completed four holes on a section which is located 300m west of the area that is currently being targeted by the diamond drilling.
Four RC holes (RC65 – RC68) were drilled on section 553310 at MG, located approximately 300m to the west of DDH-215. (Figure 1) The only previous hole on this section was historic diamond-drill hole CC-46 which intersected 8m @ 1.4 g/t gold and 38.8m @ 0.9 g/t gold in oxides, and 28.4m @ 1.3 g/t gold within the underlying basement MG deposit (Table 2, Figure 3).
RC65 was drilled 40m to the north of CC-46 and intersected 51.0m @ 0.8 g/t gold most of which is gold-bearing oxide blanket and weathered mineralized material (Table 2, Figure 3). Hole RC-66 was drilled 40m north of RC-65 and returned 75.0m @ 0.6 g/t gold from surface, the top 47m of which is gold-bearing oxide blanket material. Similarly, RC-68 was drilled to the south from the same platform as CC-46 and intersected 18.0m @ 1.4 g/t gold from surface and 20m @ 0.9 g/t gold from 24.0m depth (both in oxide material) and 19.0m @ 0.3 g/t from 61.0m depth in hard rock material. This final mineralized interval in RC-68 was unexpected and may suggest the presence of another mineralized zone in the footwall of the MG deposit at this location. Unfortunately, RC-66 was terminated early due to drilling difficulties and failed to test the interpreted footwall basement material as planned (Figure 3).
