Sao Domingos Exploration Confirms Depth and Strike Continuity of Mineralisation
Serabi Gold plc (AIM:SRB, TSX:SBI), the Brazilian-focused gold mining and improvement firm, is happy to replace the market on exploration drilling outcomes from the Toucano Zone on the Sao Domingos mission. Sao Domingos lies to the west and alongside strike of Serabi’s Sao Chico deposit.

- Drilling on the Toucano Zone has continued to efficiently verify depth and strike continuity of a number of of the high-grade lodes beforehand reported on 7 April 2021.
- Gap 21-SD-012 is the deepest gap drilled but beneath the Toucano pit and it confirmed the broad alteration zone continues an extra 50 metres under the beforehand reported high-grade intercepts from drill gap 21-SD-010 (information launch dated 7 April 2021).
- Vital leads to 21-SD-012 embrace,
- 21-SD-012 – 3.25m @ 2.91 g/t Au from 192.75m
- 21-SD-012 – 3.75m @ 7.95 g/t Au from 208.80m
- 21-SD-012 – 0.70m @ 6.63 g/t Au from 222.30m
- 21-SD-012 – 0.80m @ 7.00 g/t Au from 236.30m
- Holes 21-SD-013, 014 and 015 have been all drilled 250 metres additional north, and continued to intersect a broad 40 metre extensive alteration zone containing a number of vein lode constructions alongside strike. These holes are all under the Raimundo artisanal pit, 250 metres to the north-east of the Toucano artisanal pit. These holes additionally intersected further parallel constructions, north and south of the alteration halo.
With the preliminary section of drilling on the Toucano Zone full, the drill rig has been mobilised to evaluate the Atacadão prospect the place historic exploration round important artisanal exercise recognized a sequence of extremely potential targets worthy of follow-up. Whereas the Atacadão Section One drilling is being undertaken, entry and drill pads might be ready for infill and step-out drilling on the Toucano Zone.
Mike Hodgson, CEO of Serabi, commented:
“It is rather pleasing that the drilling on the Toucano Zone continues to show the potential for the goal and particularly the continuity of mineralisation at depth as we search to understand the chance within the district surrounding Sao Chico. The present drilling under the Toucano pit, with intercepts together with 3.75m @ 7.95 g/t Au, extends the mineralisation an extra 50 metres under the earlier high-grade intercept of seven.15m @ 258.24g/t Au.
“Drilling beneath the Raimundo pit confirms the continuity of mineralisation alongside strike and has additionally recognized parallel mineralised constructions that warrant additional follow-up.
“With the preliminary drill programme on the Toucano Zone now full, the drill rig is being relocated to the Atacadão prospect. This space has seen intensive artisanal exercise and generated some high-grade outcomes from each floor sampling by Serabi and drilling by the earlier tenement holder. We consider this prospect is a sequence of parallel mineralised constructions and plan to drill a fence of holes throughout it to offer a higher geological understanding and help future drill planning.
“Elsewhere inside our broader tenement space, we proceed to drill near the Sao Chico and Palito mines and have a fourth rig resulting from arrive at web site later this month.
“We stay up for updating the market as we generate additional outcomes.”

| (1) assay offered by ALS Laboratories, (2) assay offered by Serabi’s on-site laboratory
Reported intercepts calculated primarily based on a minimal weighted common grade of 0.5g/t Au utilizing a 0.5g/t Au weighted common decrease minimize and a most inside waste interval of 1.2m primarily based on ALS and Serabi´s on-site laboratory reported analyses. Assay outcomes reported inside this launch are a mixture of these offered by ALS laboratories in Brazil and people offered by the Firm’s personal on-site laboratory amenities at Palito which haven’t but been independently verified. Serabi carefully displays the efficiency of its personal facility towards outcomes from unbiased laboratory evaluation for high quality management objective. As a matter of regular apply, the Firm sends duplicate samples derived from a wide range of the Firm’s actions to accredited laboratory amenities for unbiased verification. Since mid-2019, over 10,000 exploration drill core samples have been assayed at each the Palito laboratory and licensed exterior laboratory, typically the ALS laboratory in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. When evaluating important assays with grades exceeding 1 g/t gold, comparability between Palito versus exterior outcomes report a mean over-estimation by the Palito laboratory of 6.7% over this era. Based mostly on the outcomes of this work, the Firm’s administration are happy that the Firm’s personal facility reveals sufficiently good correlation with unbiased laboratory amenities for exploration drill samples. The Firm would count on that within the preparation of any future unbiased Reserve/Useful resource assertion undertaken in compliance with a recognised commonplace, the unbiased authors of such a press release wouldn’t use Palito assay outcomes with out ample duplicates from an appropriately certificated laboratory.

The drilling has established a broad 50 metre extensive zone of alteration containing a number of high-grade vein-lode constructions extending no less than over a 400 metre strike and to a depth of no less than 200 metre vertical. Moreover, the drilling has intersected slender vein-lode constructions to the north and south of the principal pattern. The drill programme alongside the Toucano Zone at Sao Domingos is now full though closing assay outcomes from a number of of drill holes are but to be acquired.

Following this preliminary success on the Toucano Zone, Serabi has mobilised the drilling rig to the Atacadão prospect, 2km to the south of the Toucano Zone. The Atacadão prospect is characterised by the presence of a number of giant artisanal open pits and a sequence of shafts and adits. Mineralisation pertains to quartz vein-lode kind constructions in an identical orientation to that of the Toucano Zone additional north.
Since buying the property Serabi geologists have collected rock chip samples alongside this pattern grading as much as 204.77g/t Au (information launch dated 22 January 2021) and mapped a number of intersecting structural lineaments within the space. The situation and outcomes of the rock chips programme are proven under:

|Goal||Pattern ID||Gold (g/t)|
Following this mapping and the profitable floor rock chip programme, Serabi has commenced a “top-to-tail” drill traverse throughout the Atacadão pattern to offer a baseline geological context to the pattern and to facilitate a complete evaluation of the potential of this prospect. The drill traverse will comprise roughly 11 drill holes and full a ~600m part throughout the pattern.
This programme can even go some technique to confirming the eleven holes drilled in 2006 on the Atacadão prospect, which coated an 800 metre strike size and was undertaken by the earlier operator, Aurora Gold Company. This drilling intersected a lot of slender however high-grade veins inside a broader structural pattern. Though Serabi has not verified nor validated the outcomes reported, drill intersected grades as much as 59.97g/t are recorded. The desk under is an extract from the Aurora Gold Database recording the 11 holes. Serabi doesn’t have entry to the bodily core nor pulps for re-assay and subsequently can not validate these outcomes.
