X-TERRA RESOURCES PROVIDES DRILLING UPDATE FOR GROG AND NORTHWEST


Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, February 6, 2020 – X-Terra Resources Inc. (TSXV: XTT) (FRANKFURT: XTR) is pleased to announce that its 2020 drill exploration program on the Grog and Northwest properties, located in Restigouche county, New Brunswick is ongoing.

 

 

The program is meeting its geological targets and continues to provide very encouraging visual indicators of significant alteration and mineralization in different contexts related with the MacKenzie Gulch Fault. The program initiated is at the reconnaissance stage and covers about 30 kilometres of prospective ground. Five targets are currently being tested using 2 to 4 holes and reaching depths of between 100 to 170 metres.

The table below is highlighting the observations of the core which is being completed in the field as the program advances. Thus far they highlight three main contexts.

Dyke Swarm

GRG-20-001, GRG-20-002

Close to feldspathic dykes contacts: re worked hydrothermal breccia with pyrite stringers over 2 to 5 metres intervals.

Hosted in a sequence of fine grains sediments including limy graphitic shales and sandstone.

Dykes related skarns and sediments hosted stockwork

Bellevue North

GRG-20-003, GRG-20-004, GRG-20-005

Carbonate-quartz stockwork associated with arsenopyrite-pyrite dissemination over 5 to 20 metres intervals. Strong, carbonate – micas alteration. Lamprophyres dykes observed.

Hosted in fine grain sandstone and conglomerate sequence, in contact with a limy graphitic shale.

Stockworks and replacement in conglomerate

Michael Ferreira, President and Chief Executive Officer of X-Terra Resources states,

to date, the strong presence of mineralization markers that correspond to known mineralization models over consistent drill intervals is another milestone reached. Since 2017 when the first discovery of gold at surface was made, X-Terra Resources has put in place an efficient targeting and ground truthing approach to reach results while investing its treasury wisely

The remaining two drill targets, Bellevue South as well as Grog are expected to be completed by February 14, 2020. In addition, a drill core photo album will be uploaded to X-Terra Resources’ website in the coming days and it invites shareholders to review them as well as its February 2020 presentation.
