Leocor Gold Inc.

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - May 16, 2024 - Leocor Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “Leocor”) (CSE: LECR, OTCQB: LECRF) is pleased to update shareholders on recent significant news from Intrepid Metals (TSX.V: INTR), a Canadian company focused on exploring for high-grade essential metals such as copper, silver, lead, and zinc mineral projects in proximity to established mining jurisdictions in southeastern Arizona, USA.

In January of this year, the Company announced the completion (see Company news release dated January 8, 2024) of a CDN $3M strategic investment in Intrepid for the purpose of advancing the company’s world class copper and gold projects in Arizona.  

On May 1, Intrepid announced the results of the first 12 holes drilled at its Corral Copper property, located in Cochise County, Arizona.  The results were impressive, with highlight near surface intercepts of 105.20 meters of 1.17% Copper (1.42% CUEQ) and 48.85 meters of 2.24% Copper (2.58% CUEQ).  

Intrepid CEO Ken Brophy commented: “The results from the first 12 drill holes returned long runs of robust CRD style mineralization punctuated by highly attractive high-grade intervals of copper-gold-silver-zinc, which confirms our confidence in the economic potential of the Property.”

On May 14 Intrepid released additional results for a further five drill holes with a highlight intersection of 72.20 meters of 1.28% Copper within 198.00 meters of 0.68% CUEQ.  Drilling is also bringing the gold potential at Corral into focus.  Once again, Intrepid CEO Ken Brophy commented:

“The Corral Copper Project has once again returned remarkable shallow copper grades and mineralized intercepts at the Ringo Zone…the drilling at Ringo is illustrating the Project's gold endowment with broad intercepts of highly continuous, locally high-grade gold mineralization, including 21.3 g/pt Au over 1.1m in hole CC24_15 and 15.84 g/pt Au over 4.71m in hole CC24_14, which we expect will make a significant contribution to the economic potential of the project."

“We’re extremely pleased with the early results at Corral,” said Leocor CEO, Alex Klenman.  “We made the significant investment in Intrepid first, to partner with what is a strong management group and further, specifically to capitalize on the robust copper and gold environment by being able to participate in, and expose our shareholders to the development of Corral.  We commend and congratulate the Intrepid team on these significant early results and look forward to being long term shareholders and supporters of the company.” continued Mr. Klenman.

Leocor’s initial investment resulted in the acquisition of 6,600,000 common shares of Intrepid and 2,223,529 pre-funded special warrants at $0.34 per Unit and Special Warrant for an aggregate investment of $3 million.  Leocor also holds 6,600,000 warrants exercisable at $0.40 cents.   The current value of the position is approximately CDN $6.6M.
