Sable Resources Receives 103 g/t Au at the Newly Discovered Los Pumas Project and Defines Kilometric Au-Ag-Cu System

VANCOUVER, Jan. 12, 2021 /CNW/ - Sable Resources Ltd. ("Sable" or the "Company") (TSXV: SAE) (OTCQB: SBLRF) is pleased to announce the first results of early reconnaissance geochemical sampling from its new Los Pumas project located in San Juan Province, 21 km south of Sable's Don Julio project.

Discovered through systematic follow-up of a large scale ASTER spectral anomaly, Sable's geologists collected a total of 254 rock samples over an extensive 6km by 4km area returning multiple high-grade values of up to 103 g/t Au, up to 2,650 g/t Ag, and up to 2.9% Cu with 48 samples returning over 1 g/t gold equivalent.

"Los Pumas represents a brand-new grassroots discovery with no previous sampling or drilling in the vicinity, a clear product of our systematic approach to greenfields exploration.  We are greatly encouraged by the large number of well-mineralised samples across such a broad footprint identified in our first field visits to the area," stated Ruben Padilla, President and CEO of Sable, who added, "Additional work, including soil sampling, trenching, geophysics and road constructions, will be required to fully define the real magnitude and characteristics of the system."

Originally identified as a large-scale ASTER satellite image spectral anomaly (coincident Silica-Illite-Alunite±Kaolinite) located on the south-east part of the Company's properties (Figure 1), Sable's exploration team conducted field reconnaissance, observing extensive alteration, hosted within Permian granites and Paleozoic sandstones. The alteration shares characteristics with intrusion related and some IOCG systems consisting of sericite, K-feldspar, sheeted quartz veinlets, tourmaline veins and breccias.  The mineralization observed consists of pyrite, chalcopyrite, tetrahedrite, and Cu oxides associated to the quartz and tourmaline veins and veinlets.   The geochemical expression along with the observed alteration delineates a footprint of at least 6km by 4km in several mineralized clusters separated by mostly unexplored ground.  Distribution of geochemical values in these zones are presented in Figures 2 to 5 with significant values shown in Table 1 below.

Gold equivalent grades were calculated considering prices of U$1,500 per ounce of gold; US20 per ounce of silver; and US$3 per pound of copper, as well as considering a recovery of 100%.  The Company notes that selected grab samples are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted at Los Pumas. Maps and tables with full results are available on Sable's website (www.sableresources.com). 

ABOUT SABLE RESOURCES LTD.

Sable is a well-funded junior grassroots explorer focused on the discovery of new precious metal projects through systematic exploration in endowed terranes located in favorable, established mining jurisdictions. Sable's main focus is developing its large portfolio of new greenfields projects to resource stage utilizing their Upper Level Epithermal Strategy. Sable is actively exploring the San Juan Regional Program (110,877 ha) incorporating the Don Julio Project and the El Fierro Project in San Juan Province, Argentina as well as the Mexico Regional Program (1.16Mha in application, 39,000ha titled) incorporating the Vinata and El Escarpe projects.

SAMPLE PREPARATION AND QA/QC

Sample preparation for projects in Argentina is carried out by ALS Chemex Argentina, a subsidiary of ALS Minerals, at its facility located in Mendoza, Argentina. Analyses are carried out at their laboratory in Lima, Peru. Sample preparation includes drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60°C, fine crushing of the sample to at least 70% passing less than 2 mm, sample splitting using a riffle splitter, and pulverizing a 250 g split to at least 85% passing 75 microns (code PREP-31).

Gold was analyzed by fire assay of a 30 g sample split with detection by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES); multi-elements were analyzed by an aqua regia digestion of a 1 gram sub-sample with detection by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES) for 35 elements (Ag, Al, As, B, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Ga, Hg, K, La, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, P, Pb, S, Sb, Sc, Sr, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Zn) (codes Au-ICP21 and ME-ICP41). This digestion method dissolves most minerals but not all elements are quantitatively extracted in some sample matrices. Over limit Ag, Cu, Pb, Zn OG46 analyses are conducted when samples exceed the upper detection limits; this method includes Aqua Regia digestion and ICP-AES finish. Method Ag-GRA21 which includes Fire Assay with gravimetric finish is applied when Ag exceeds 1,500 g/t. Control samples (standards, blanks, and duplicates) are inserted systematically and their results evaluated according to the Company protocols.
