Frontline Announces Positive Results of Spring Sampling and Mapping Program Crooked Pine Lake Property
Toronto, Ontario - TheNewswire - July 20, 2021 - Frontline Gold Corporation (TSXV:FGC) (OTC:FLDPF) (“Frontline” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has received results from its mapping and sampling program at its Crooked Pine Lake gold property (the “Property”) located 35 km east of Atikokan, Ontario. Emerald Geological Services (“EGS”) completed mapping, rock sampling and soil sampling on the Property between May 3 and 11, 2021.
A total of 42 rock-grab samples, 10 B horizon and 73 A horizon (humus) soil samples were collected during the sampling program and have been submitted to Actlabs in Thunder Bay for Au and trace element geochemistry. Soil sampling results are still pending. Highlights of the grab sampling program include 3.06 g/t Au (3,060 ppb Au) and 0.519 g/t Au (519 ppb Au) at the Historical South Showing. The Pothole Occurrence returned a grab sample value of 0.536 g/t Au (Figure 1).

Grab samples are selected samples and not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property.
The highlighted results reflect the gold-bearing shear zones in the southern mafic volcanic belt along the Pothole Lake Deformation Zone. These shear zones contain quartz veining in excess of 1m, iron carbonate alteration, potassic alteration and variable contents of pyrite, chalcopyrite and arsenopyrite.
Crooked Pine Gold Project Highlights
The Property is located within the Marmion Subprovince of northwestern Ontario, home to the Agnico Eagle Hammond Reef gold deposit which hosts 4.5M oz. of gold in the Measured and Indicated category. The Hammond Reef gold deposit is located on the Hammond Reef Shear Zone, a northeast trending deformation corridor hosted within the granitoid suite of the Marmion batholith. Of significance within the Marmion batholith are multiple parallel, northeast-trending gold-bearing shear zones that contain historic gold mines and occurrences (Figure 1). These northeast trending shear zones are considered splays off of the Quetico Fault, a subprovince boundary fault separating the Marmion and Quetico subprovinces.

Complimenting the northeast trending shears is the Pothole Lake Deformation Zone in the southern mafic volcanic belt (Figure 1). The deformation corridor hosts several gold showings with historical results of a 1963 channel sample of 9.33 g/t Au over 2.74m (MDI52B14SE00020).
"After acquisition of the Pothole Claims earlier in the year, our field crew set out with boots on the ground in May to investigate historical reports of gold mineralization along the Pothole Lake Deformation Zone. Our initial rock sampling program has confirmed this with promising results. EGS field observations observed key structural, geological and alteration elements that that are conducive to orogenic gold deposition. We look forward to receiving the analytical soil sampling program and will utilize the results for continued exploration programs targeted at those areas of high merit. The Crooked Pine Lake Project continues to be a high-quality asset for Frontline”, said Frontline’s President and CEO Walter Henry.
