Trans Canada Gold Corp. Prepares Gold Targets And Drill Program For The Crippleback Lake Gold Project In The Corridor Of Gold In Central Newfoundland

VANCOUVER, B.C. – Trans Canada Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TTG) (“Trans Canada” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company is preparing drill targets for its Crippleback Lake Gold project. The Crippleback Gold project is approximately halfway between Sokomon Mineral’s Corp’s Moosehead gold discovery and Marathon Gold Valentine Lake Gold Project.  Trans Canada Gold has confirmed the gold potential in this emerging central Newfoundland Gold District and has acted on securing the most prospective land situated directly over the Cape Ray Fault Zone which is widely recognized to host high-grade-gold mineralization.  Initial reconnaissance work has been conducted on the property and will be combined with the recently completed regional helicopter-borne Heli-GT Triaxial Magnetic Gradiometer Survey, which aims to identify, delineate and guide drill testing gold targets known to exist on the property.


Commented Tim Coupland, “The Airborne survey we recently completed is a critical tool in identifying the many structural lineaments located on the property, along the Cape Ray Fault zone, which is necessary in the discovery of high grade-gold deposits, and important in locating hidden base metal targets hidden in the structurally advanced Newfoundland geological environment. We will be utilizing our rock and soil sampling accompanied by the Magnetic Survey. The newly acquired datasets from the airborne survey will greatly assist the Company in identifying and refining our existing gold targets already identified on the property, and greatly assist the Company in additional target generation prior to proceeding to drilling gold targets.”




The Company has received the necessary permit approval for Planned Mineral Exploration Work from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, for Trans Canada Gold’s Crippleback Lake Gold property situated in the “Corridor of Gold”, in Central Newfoundland. The newly issued exploration permit now grants  permission to follow up on gold targets recently identified by Sokoman Minerals (TSXV-SIC), which will quickly bring the project to the drill ready stage.  The exploration permit allows for prospecting, geochemical sampling, airborne geophysics and ground geophysics.  In addition to Exploration permitting, drilling permits were recently submitted on June 17, 2021 for diamond drilling and the use of heavy equipment, once gold targets have been fully defined on the property in the coming months.  The Company is positioned to move quickly, and to advance the gold potential of this centrally positioned gold property, which lies directly over the Cape Ray Faulting Zone, the same faulting system, which also hosts the Marathon Valentine Lake Gold deposit and the Sokoman Minerals Moosehead 100% wholly-owned Gold discovery located in Central Newfoundland’s Corridor of Gold.



  • 121 mineral claims (3025 ha or 7475 acre) fully road accessible from the TransCanada Highway with numerous secondary logging roads internal to the claims. Easy access to infrastructure in Grand Falls, Newfoundland.


  • Covers a 13-kilometre strike length of the gold rich Valentine Lake Structural/Shear Zone midway between Marathon Gold’s Valentine Lake Gold Deposit, which recently secured a $185-million US Financing facility, and is anticipated to be Atlantic Canada’s largest gold mining operation, and Sokoman Minerals Corp. 100% wholly-owned high-grade gold Moosehead Discovery.


  • Robust Gold in lake sediment and till samples, with multiple till samples exhibiting delicate (proximal to source) gold grains as well as angular float samples assaying up to 1.7 g/t gold


  • All previous exploration efforts prior to this, have been focused primarily on base metals


  • Exploration Permits have been fully approved by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador


  • Drilling Permits have been submitted on June 17, 2021. Approval pending.


  • Appoints SHA Geophysics for a Heli-GT Magnetic Survey on the Crippleback Lake Claim block.


  • Airborne Heli-GT Magnetic Survey performed by SHA Geophysics has been completed




The Crippleback Lake Gold Project covers the northeastern extension of the regional scale Cape Ray /Valentine Lake fault/Shear zone and is situated in the same geological units that host high grade gold mineralization at Marathon’s Gold’s Valentine Lake gold deposit which is anticipated to be Atlantic Canada’s largest gold mining operation. The property is situated in the gold prolific and rapidly emerging Corridor of gold in the Central Newfoundland Gold Belt, and is ideally situated on trend between Marathon Gold’s Valentine Lake Project, and with Sokoman Mineral’s flagship Moosehead High-Grade Gold discovery which is now in the midst of a 50,000-metre (Phase 6) drill program.  The Crippleback Lake Gold property is located near the Trans-Canada highway near Grand Falls, situated in north-central Newfoundland, is easily accessible by a network of secondary logging roads and is only a short drive from assaying and diamond drilling services in Springdale, Newfoundland. The Project has easy access to full infrastructure and a skilled workforce.



The Trans-Canada Gold Property consists of 741 non-surveyed contiguous mineral cell claims totaling 14,880 hectares located within the Kenora Mining Division of Ontario.  The property is located within the Wabigoon Greenstone Belt, which also contains the Thunder Lake Gold deposit and the Goldlund Gold Deposit.  The Property contains a number of large shear zones containing quartz carbonate veins, pyrite and arsenopyrite, underlain by mafic volcanics with felsic volcanics in the south.  There is a large regional scale iron carbonate alteration within the property, which is considered to be similar to that of the Red Lake Mining Camp.  The regional scale Carbonate alteration within the property associated with shear zones within iron-tholeiite are prime targets for gold exploration.  The property has excellent access, with the Trans-Canada highway bisecting multiple high priority targets in a north-south direction, as well as close proximity to the large community of Dryden, Ontario.  The property has access to first class infrastructure, with close proximity to a number of rail corridors and power lines.  A number of gold exploration targets have been identified within the property based on their association with regional alteration, known gold showings, shear zones, complex patterns and offsets in the regional magnetic map as well as spatial association with regional structures that has the potential to be well endowed with gold mineralization.
