Rogue Resources Announces High Grade Silica Strike Length Extended over 100 meters to 1.5 Km, Adds Second Drill to Current Program and Arranges $2.5 M Private Placement
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
- THREE NEW CHANNEL SAMPLES COLLECTED ON QUARTZITE UNIT “H”
- MINIMUM 1.5 KM STRIKE LENGTH ON QUARTZITE UNIT ‘G’ CONFIRMED
- MIDDLE CHANNEL RESULTS ON ‘G’ CONFIRM CONSISTENCY OF HIGH SiO2 PURITY
- 12 OF 25 PHASE ONE DRILL HOLES COMPLETED
- SECOND DRILL TO ARRIVE ON SITE WITHIN A WEEK
- 2,000 METERS ADDED TO PHASE TWO DRILL PROGRAM
VANCOUVER, B.C. – Rogue Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RRS) (“Rogue” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that assay results from an additional seven of fourteen channel sample units comprising 256 samples have been received on the Lac de la Grosse Femelle silica project (“Femelle”) located approximately 42 kilometers (“km”) north of Baie-Saint Paul, Québec, and 4 km northeast of Sitec’s operating silica mine.
The Company is also pleased to announce that 12 of the 25 Phase One drill holes, comprising 2,261 meters (“m”) have been completed. An additional drill will be onsite shortly and upon arrival will begin drilling the expanded Phase Two drill program. All drilling is expected to be completed prior to the end of November 2015. Drilling is designed to test the extent of Quartzite Unit “G” and the newly discovered “H” Quartzite unit, including their purity, depth, width and the length of extension below surface. Upon receiving all of the assays and compiling the results, an independent firm will be tasked with preparing a NI43-101 compliant resource report and a corresponding Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”).
Channel R11 assays recording up to 99.8% Si02 extend the quartzite unit another 100 m east-northeast to a total of 1.5 km east of Channels R6 and R7 located in the same “G” quartzite unit (please see news releases dated August 20, 2015 and September 2, 2015). Newly reported are Channels R4 and R5 located 920 m east-northeast of R7 on the same unit and 540 m west-southwest of Channel R11. The replication of assays averages on the three smaller channel areas located approximately in the middle of the over 1.5 km strike length of the quartzite unit is considered indicative of the continuity of the high purity silica trend that is contained within the “G” quartzite unit.
The newly discovered “H” quartzite unit is pure white, coarse-grained, crystalline, and massive, with no apparent discolouration. Therefore, in response to the high purity SiO2 assays reported on R13, three additional channels, R13B, R13C and R13D, consisting of 39 samples located 31 m west-southwest of channel R13, were delivered to SGS Labs in Québec City.
Assays from Channels R1, R2, R3, and R14 indicate that these samples were taken on the southern edge of the contact with the “H” quartzite, and were located just outside of the quartzite unit.

“It is highly encouraging to have high purity silica assays reported on the east, middle and west ends of the “G” quartzite unit, open on both ends, supporting the continuity of the high purity silica for a strike length of not less than 1.5 km. Additional channel sampling was recently completed on the newly discovered Unit “H” as a direct response of the Unit being very white in colour with no apparent discoloration, and the high silica value assays of R13,” commented Company President and CEO, John de Jong. “Adding an additional drill will allow us to complete all of our phase one and two drill programs prior to the end of November. We remain on budget and on target with our drilling and planning for a resource calculation in the New Year.”
Channel Sample Results
Channel samples, R1 – R14, consisting of 256 samples totaling 446.7 m of channelling were delivered to SGS Laboratories in Québec City. Assay results for 55 samples over 93.9 m from channels R4, R5 and R11, on the “G” quartzite unit and R1, R2, R3 and R14 on the newly discovered quartzite unit “H” have been received.
Channels R4 and R5 Details:
- Located in the central portion of “G” quartzite unit at 900 m east-northeast of R7 and 435 m west-southwest of R9
- Seven samples submitted
- Total channel sampling length 11.5 m
- 3.1 m comprising two of seven samples in two sequences returned assays of SiO2 (99.0% to 99.2% SiO2)
Sequences of Assayed Silica Oxide Contents (Over 99.0% SiO2)
- Sequence 1 for Channel R4: 1.5 m
- 1.5 m interval assayed 99.0% SiO2
- Sequence 2 for Channel R5: 1.6 m
- 1.6 m interval assayed 99.2% SiO2
The higher silica content and purity was in quartzites that were white, coarse-grained, crystalline, and massive with minor pink staining (oxidation). Drilling designed to identify the width and depth of the “G” quartzite unit in this area and silica purity will begin within the next several days.
