Tasca to Execute Exploration Program at Its Princeton Gold Property

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) – Tasca Resources Ltd. (“Tasca” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture symbol: TAC) has commenced planning for a 2018 drill program on the Princeton Gold Property, 35 kilometres south of Princeton, British Columbia and 11 kilometers south of the producing Copper Mountain Copper Mine.  The road accessible, 4013 hectare property is fully permitted for fifty trenching sites and ten drilling sites.

Previous prospecting, soil grids and rock sampling have identified an area of significant interest, Area 2, where float grab and in-place quartz rock sampling documented 25 of 37 samples returning gold values in excess of 1,000 ppb with 13 of the 25 samples returning gold values in excess of 10,000 ppb gold, or 10 grams per tonne, to a maximum of 66,237 ppb or 66.2 grams per tonne gold.  The samples were collected from three separate locations enclosing angular float, sub crop or outcrop of rusty weathered, limonite stained quartz with trace to 5% very fine grained disseminated pyrite. Several of the samples exhibit remnant vugs or cellular boxwork structure. The 2011 grid soil sampling surveys indicate Area 2 hosts multiple, linear, parallel gold-in-soil anomalies with the strongest anomaly striking a minimum of 500 metres to a maximum of 650 metres in a northwestern direction.

President Clive Massey states: “We are very excited to have acquired what we believe to be a property that hosts a bonified new gold discovery with high potential upside for further gold exploration. Much geochemical data has already been gathered and interpreted, while property access and local infrastructure are well developed in the immediate area”.

Tasca is earning a 100 percent interest subject to a 2% Net Smelter Return Royalty by making cash payments totalling $30,000, issuing 2,000,000 shares and completing $1,200,000 in exploration over the next three years.

Tasca Has Identified Multiple New Target Areas on Poplar Copper Property

Vancouver, British Columbia, February 20, 2018Tasca Resources Ltd. (“Tasca”, “TAC” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: TAC) (Frankfurt: 3TA) reports its technical team has spent the last two months assembling the historic exploration data previously generated at the Poplar copper property, southwest of Houston, British Columbia. Tasca is currently reviewing and cataloging the data to locate and define exploration targets both within the area of known mineralization and elsewhere on the 62,000 hectare property. At this preliminary stage, Tasca has identified multiple new and previously known target areas on its Poplar project:

  • Deep IP targets that appear to suggest extension of the known Poplar deposit both to depth and laterally;
  • Several airborne EM anomalies displaying signatures similar to known BC porphyry deposits;
  • Several property wide historic zones requiring follow up exploration with modern methods.

“We believe Tasca has acquired not only a nice copper deposit, but a property with significant exploration upside potential,” stated Tasca CEO Clive Massey. “We anticipate defining and cataloging numerous exploration targets across the property over the next one to two months as Tasca’s technical team continues its review of the enormous data set pertaining to the Poplar Copper Deposit. Tasca plans to release further information on each of the three target areas as the data is reviewed and cataloged and targets are defined.”

Lions Gate Metals (LGM) the prior property owner, commissioned a 2009 deep Induced Polarization (IP) survey in the immediate area of the Poplar deposit to test for depth extension to the main deposit and test for peripheral or additional mineralization in the area of the deposit. Several of these targets remain to be tested.

LGM 2011 and 2012 drilling at the Poplar Deposit was primarily targeted at confirming some of the earlier drill results, expanding the mineralization at depth and testing the edges of the known mineralization to expand the deposit. Initial review suggests the program was a success. The entire drill database is currently being reviewed in detail in order to design a drill program that will allow the resource to be moved from historical to current and to provide material for further metallurgical testing.

LGM completed property wide airborne magnetic and electromagnetic surveys in 2009. Several anomalies displaying characteristics similar to known porphyry copper deposits were located across the entire property. LGM subsequently undertook initial till geochemical sampling at a few of the targets with encouraging results.

Tasca is compiling and reviewing the assessment record for the entire 62,000 hectare property. Initial review indicates several areas within the current property boundaries have long exploration histories with very interesting results. Tasca is actively reviewing the data from these areas in the context of the LGM airborne geophysics and the recently completed LWIR (Long Wave Infrared) survey recently announced (see December 11, 2017 News Release) to further define exploration targets and determine the presence of cross survey anomalies.

Over the next few months, Tasca will continue its review to identify both deposit and property wide targets for exploration during the 2018 season. Ground geochemical surveys, reconnaissance drilling of peripheral targets and resource and metallurgical drilling within the Poplar Deposit are in the initial planning stages.

Investors are cautioned, Tasca Resources Ltd. has not yet verified the exploration data disclosed in this release. That will be the primary objective of the 2018 exploration programs.
