RT Minerals Corp Announces Assay Results from Link-Catharine RLDZ Property; Updates Annual General and Special Meeting Date





 

Vancouver, B.C. – TheNewswire - June 17, 2021 – RT Minerals Corp. (TSXV:RTM) (OTC:RTMFF) (the “Company” or “RTM”) is pleased to announce that the Company’s Phase II drill program originally announced on February 4, 2021 has confirmed additional gold mineralization at its Link-Catharine RLDZ property (“Link-Catharine”) located 25 km SSE of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, as more fully described in this news release.

 

Donald (Dan) M. Clark, the President and CEO of the Company, comments on the Link-Catharine RLDZ program and region: “The five holes of the current program and the seven holes from the previous drill program at the Link-Catharine property has confirmed narrow and broad anomalous gold signatures with several high grade gold sections within an area of about 180m north to south by about 180m east to west and to a vertical depth of up to approximately 180m. Several separate sub-parallel/en-echelon gold sections have been encountered. The widespread nature of gold mineralization traversing all rock units within the Property as well as the strong hydrothermal alteration with sulphides continues to suggest a significant gold bearing system is present. Large anomalous gold halos, with high grade intervals contained therein, as is observed at the Link-Catharine property, are similar in some cases to the past producing Kerr Addison Mine (“Kerr”) located about 25 km northeast of RTM’s Link-Catharine property. All of the 11 holes drilled and assayed by RTM since its drilling commenced in October 2020 on the Link-Catharine Property have been gold bearing.

 

The entire region of this southwestern part of the Abitibi greenstone belt is becoming highly active. RTM has encountered significant gold mineralization over the past eight months on the Link-Catharine property. Northstar Gold Corp. (“Northstar”), located about 3 km north from the up to 104 sq km potential RTM claim block, has recently announced significant gold intercepts from its drilling. Kirkland Lake Gold Corp. has acquired 9.9% of the common shares of Ore Finders Resources Inc. (“Orefinders”) as well as entered into a $60 million strategic alliance with Ore Finders. The Orefinders property is located about 3 km from the RTM 104 sq km block. With RTM shareholder approval, RTM will be the largest claim holder in this under explored region of the Abitibi greenstone belt of Ontario, which represents a newly emerging Canadian gold exploration camp involving both major and junior gold companies. RTM is excited by its plans to conduct follow-up exploration within the aggregate 104 sq km block pending its acquisition of Catharine Gold Inc., which is subject to shareholder approval at the Annual General and Special Meeting to be held on June 22, 2021, as well as receipt of standard regulatory approvals.”

 

The Company’s Annual General and Special Meeting is scheduled for June 22, 2021 and the Company will seek shareholder approval for the acquisition of a 100% interest in Catharine Gold Inc. (“CGI”), a private company that owns the mineral rights to approximately 100 sq km of mineral claims that are contiguous to RTM’s Link-Catharine property, and which commences approximately 22 km southeast of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Canada.
