Vancouver – TheNewswire – December 16th, 2020 – Valorem Resources Inc, (CSE:VALU) (CNSX:VALU.CN) (the “Company” or “Valorem”) is pleased to announce that it has completed a Technical Report, in accordance with National Instrument 43-101, for the Black Dog Lake Property (the “Property” or “Project”), Quebec, and has filed on SEDAR (System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval). The Technical Report was prepared by Darren L. Smith, M.Sc., P.Geo., of Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd., and titled “Technical Report on the Black Dog Lake Property, Quebec, Canada”, effective date December 8th, 2020. The Company has an exclusive option to acquire an undivided 100% interest in the Black Dog Lake Property over a three-year period (see news release dated August 7th, 2020).  

The Black Dog Lake Property is an early stage exploration project, which has been the subject of several exploration campaigns by multiple companies since the 1970s. Appreciable gold mineralization has been confirmed to be present on the Property within a sulphide-facies banded iron formation (the “Black Dog Zone”) and represents the primary exploration target on the Property. In addition, a series of east-west trending conductors, IP anomalies, and magnetic trends are prevalent across the southern half of the Property and parallel the northern contact of the Mistumis Batholith. Collectively, these features demonstrate additional exploration potential on the Property. A total of five (5) target areas have been identified on the Property, highlighted by the Black Dog Zone.

The mineralization at the Black Dog Zone has a current interpreted extent of least 600 m in length and extends at least 100 m down dip, is steeply dipping, and has an apparent thickness of 0.6 to 3.6 m. The zone remains open along strike and at depth and has been tested at wide drill spacings. The grades of drill core intercepts include; 15.2 g/t Au over 0.6 m (in LH-88-01); 5.6 g/t Au over 1.1 m (in LH-88-02); and 4.3 g/t Au over 0.88 m (in LH-88-03), and indicate a fertile environment for mineralization, and therefore, potential to extend to other areas of the Property. The zone is coincident with local EM conductors, magnetic trends, and anomalous gold in surface samples, which collectively indicate additional strike potential is present.

The Company intends to carry-out the recommended exploration work on the Property, which includes a Phase I program of prospecting, trenching, mapping, and potentially ground geophysics, followed by a Phase II program focused on diamond drilling.

The Company also announces that it has entered into a services agreement with Bello Capital Partners (“Bello”) dated December 15, 2020 (the “Service Agreement”), pursuant to which Bello will provide and manage a comprehensive digital media marketing campaign for  monthly cash consideration of $15,000 + GST. The term of the Service Agreement is for an initial period of 12 months. The campaign includes, but is not limited to, content development, web development, media buying and distribution, and campaign reporting and optimization. Neither Bello nor any of its directors or officers hold, directly or indirectly, any securities of Valorem. The services provided by Bello may be subject to CSE approval.
