Scottie Announces Encouraging Results From the Bitter Creek Property

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scottie Resources Corp. (“Scottie” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SCOT) is pleased to provide an update on 2019 field work performed on its recently acquired Bitter Creek property (see news release dated March 6, 2019) located in BC’s Golden Triangle.

Targeted geological mapping and sampling during the 2019 field season on the 4832 ha Bitter Creek Property has delivered several promising results, including a new showing (Blue Goat) located 1 km along strike from a past producing adit, as well as high-grade gold grab samples from historic trenches.

New Showing – Blue Goat:
The Blue Goat showing is located in a 175 m long, 10 m wide mineralized corridor consisting of massive sphalerite-quartz-Fe-carbonate veining in a variably sulphidized and veined volcanic host rock. The orientation of the mineralized corridor is on strike with the historic Blue Grouse adit, located 1 km to the southwest (see figure below). The mineralized corridor is situated perpendicular to the edge of the Cambria Icefield, and was exposed due to glacial retreat, mineralization is  projected to extend beneath the ice.

Outcrop samples from the area exhibit favourable polymetallic grades, including up to 5380 g/t Ag, 8.22 g/t Au, >30 % Zn, 3.2 % Pb, and 0.8 % Cu.

Similarities in structural style/orientation, ore mineralogy, and grades strongly support the hypothesis that the mineralized structure hosting the Blue Goat is a continuation of the Blue Grouse showing. Mineralization remains open along strike: to the northeast the corridor is covered by a glacier and to the southwest the zone is truncated by faulting (follow-up work is required). The separation between the showings provides a 1 km zone in which to target future exploration.

High-Grade Gold – Barney showing:
Grab sampling of historic trenches around the Barney showing have returned significant gold values. Mineralization in multiple hand trenches consists of arsenopyrite and pyrrhotite occurring as discreet veins and as disseminations. Mineralization appears to be associated with a faulted lime-rich siltstone unit. Despite the high-grade nature of the showing, it has never been drilled. Future targeted exploration in the area will be greatly aided by the detailed mapping and contour soil sampling completed this season.

Bradley Rourke, President and CEO of Scottie Resources commented: “We had a great season working on the Cambria Project our >10,000 ha package of claims that borders the western boundary of Ascot Resources’ Red Mountain Project. These results on the Bitter Creek property exemplify the potential in the area, and we are excited to put out more strong results as assays continue to trickle in.”

The Bitter Creek Property is subject to a 2.5% net smelter return, of which the Company can purchase up to 60% for $1,500,000.
