TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 9, 2016) - Signature Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SGU)(OTCQB:SGGTF) ("Signature" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that an assessment of archived core stored at the Lingman Lake mine site has determined that the core is in remarkably good condition allowing for a detailed re-evaluation and sampling of it.
22 holes, totaling approximately 3,500 meters, representative of the gold mineralized zones, are being evaluated by a process of re-logging and sampling. The sampling component is two-fold; 1) sample past intervals for confirmation of historic results, 2) test sections of previously un-sampled core exhibiting geological-mineralogical characteristics for potential gold enrichment. The objectives of this program are: to confirm the historic database, potentially identify new zones and extensions to known zones.
Gold and multi-element analyses will be performed by SGS Canada at their laboratory located at Red Lake, Ontario and quality assurance/quality control monitoring of the samples will be undertaken by the independent consulting firm of Caracle Creek International Ltd.
"We look forward to receiving the assay results and re-logs of the core. This information will be invaluable in our assessment of the Lingman Lake deposit as we move forward to upgrading the historic resource to meet current 43-101 standards," commented Walter Hanych, President and CEO.
Bob Komarechka, P.Geo., is a Qualified Person as defined by NI43-101 and is responsible for maintaining best practice in the field.
