Leocor Updates Progress at its 150,000-ha Gold Exploration Portfolio in Newfoundland, Canada
Vancouver, British Columbia - TheNewswire - November 18, 2021 - Leocor Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “Leocor”) (CNSX:LECR.CN) (OT:LECRF) (Frankfurt:LGO) is pleased to update of our phase one programs in Newfoundland, Canada. We are simultaneously working on phase 1 work over five different projects which are Hodges Hill, Leamington, Roberts Arm, Baie Verte, and Startrek.
The Company’s district-scale Atlantic Gold Portfolio comprises 152,822 hectares (586-sq miles) of prospective gold claims in three separate mining districts:
1) Baie Vert Project combines the Dorset, Dorset Extension, Five Mile Brook, and Copper Creek areas.
2) Western Exploit District is home to the Hodges Hill, Leamington, and Roberts Arm projects.
3) Gander district is home to the Startrek project
The Baie Verte Project is the subject of a large soil sampling campaign designed principally to give a reliable geochemical targeting base to an area with significant historical exploration. From an initial two-phase plan of 4940 soils we have collected ~4650 see Figure 1.
Figure 1: Soil sampling progress at Baie Verte as of the 7th Nov, 2021.
The Western Exploit district is very much a generative project and as such the soil sampling is the principal tool being currently employed. The soils collected as of the 7TH Nov, 2021 are tabulated below and illustrated in Figures 2, 3 and 4 respectively.

There are approximately 775 soils to be collected to finish the present campaign, see Figure 5.
