NewOrigin Gold Commences Field Program at its Sky Lake Gold Project

NewOrigin Gold Corp.

Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire - September 14, 2022 - NewOrigin Gold Corp. (TSXV:NEWO) (OTC:TROIF) has initiated a geological program at its Sky Lake Gold Project in northwestern Ontario. NewOrigin’s Sky Lake Gold Project covers 9,100 hectares and is located 25 kilometres southwest of the Pickle Lake gold mining district. In November of 2021 NewOrigin acquired 100% interest in the Koval patented claims from Barrick Gold and also received a three-year permit to carry out drilling. In February of 2022 NewOrigin renewed its Exploration Permit to conduct surface exploration, also valid for 3 years. The Company is now proceeding with its goal of establishing a gold resource on its Sky Lake Gold Project.  


The current field work consists of geological mapping, soil sampling and drill site reconnaissance. Geological mapping is focused on identifying possible eastward extensions to the Koval Gold Zone as well as along trend from iron-formation related gold occurrences northeast of the Koval Zone identified almost 40 years ago. Soil sampling is underway to cover these areas and also at other high-priority targets to prioritize them for a preliminary drill program.

NewOrigin Gold is initially targeting a drill program to confirm and build on the historic resource at the Koval Zone. Drill site reconnaissance is now being carried out in this area with a view to drill testing below known near surface gold mineralization and at depth below historic drilling. In addition, NewOrigin’s drill program may also consist of drilling gold-bearing iron formation northeast of Koval which is geologically similar and along trend from the Kasagiminnis gold resource currently being investigated by Ardiden Limited. NewOrigin will await results from soil sampling to determine if drill targets outside of the Koval Zone will make up part of the inaugural drill program.


Sky Lake Project is a 25 kilometre long, camp-scale property in the prolific Red Lake-Uchi Sub-Province of northwestern Ontario. Greenstone belts comprising this sub-province have seen production and discoveries of over 40 million ounces (“M oz”) of gold including; Evolution Gold’s Red Lake Mine (~25 M oz),the recent LP Fault discovery (pre-resource) on Great Bear Resources’ Dixie property and the nearby Pickle Lake District and surrounding deposits hosting over 3 M oz of gold. Sky Lake shares a similar geological environment to these important gold mining centers and discoveries.


Throughout 2022, NewOrigin has been working diligently to complete an arrangement for the benefit of the nearby Mishkeegogamang Ojibway community. This work is progressing and the Company would like to thank members of the Mishkeegogamang community for their engagement, positive support and continued interaction toward building a long-term relationship.
