DeepRock Minerals Expands Land Package in New Brunswick

VANCOUVER, CANADA – TheNewswire - July 22, 2021 – DeepRock Minerals Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE:DEEP) (CNSX:DEEP.CN), is pleased to announce it has entered into an option agreement with Gerard Roy and Rose Hannan (together the “Optionor”) to acquire a 100% interest in the Lugar Property (the “Property”), a 2,800 hectare (28.0 km²) mineral claim package comprising 112 contiguous claim blocks that adjoin and surround the northern border  of the Company’s Falls Grid Property (and together herein known as the “Golden Gate Project”).

Within an area long known to be prospective for its mineral exploration potential the Lugar Property covers areas both North and East of the Company’s Falls Grid Property which was optioned in June 2019.  The expanded land package spans multiple converging major geological contacts and fault zones that are related and on structural trend with similar formations that host both former producing mines and commercial deposits now under development both west and southwest of the project area.

Four known gold occurrences have been reported on the Lugar Property.  The primary target area lies in the Property’s southeastern section, which is an east-northeast extension to the Company’s targeted gold zone on the Falls Grid Property.  Reported interpretations of earlier airborne and ground-based geophysical surveys appear to confirm earlier exploration work which included prospecting and shallow diamond drilling that encountered multiple sulphide mineralized intercepts.  With its southwestern extents lying within the original Falls Grid Property, this contact zone has been shown to trend NE for a distance exceeding 5 kms.

Additionally, the Lugar Property’s secondary target area hosts Ordovician granite intrusions along the northern boundary that have been mapped over a distance of 7.0+ kms, and where within the Property a series of gold geochemical anomalies have been reported from soil, quartz vein and float sampling.  This area lies parallel and south of the known gold-hosting Nicolas Denys granite.

DeepRock’s option to acquire a 100% right, title and ownership interest in the Property over a 4 year period consist of $120,000 in total cash payments, and an accumulative expenditure of $225,000 in exploration work, and including a retained 1.25% Net Smelter Royalty (“NSR”) in accordance with the following schedule (all dollar amounts in Canadian Dollars):

  1. i.$5,000 cash payment to the Vendor within 5 days of the agreement’s execution date (paid),
