September 4, 2020 – TheNewswire – Vancouver, B.C. – Supernova Metals Corp. (“SUPERNOVA“) (TSXV:SUPR) (Frankfurt:A1S.F) (OTC:ABETF) is pleased to announce that, further to the news release dated August 17, 2020, the Company has completed a final definitive option agreement wherein it can acquire a 75% interest in the Cold Springs gold/silver project (the “Property“) by paying Silver Range Resources Ltd. (“Silver Range“) (TSXV:SNG) an aggregate of $300,000 in cash and performing a minimum of 2,000 meters of drilling on the Property over a three year period (the “Transaction“). The Property is subject to a 2.5% NSR that can be bought down to 1% for a cash payment of $1,250,000.
About Cold Springs
The Cold Springs property is located in the western Great Basin of Nevada and covers high-grade epithermal gold-silver mineralization. It lies approximately 80km east of Fallon and is accessible by road. It covers an approximately 800m by 350m hill-top exposure of altered and silicified rhyodacite breccia which hosts a series of northwest-striking, sub-parallel gold and silver-bearing quartz veins. The property consists of 22 Federal Lode Claims centered on a small hill along the range front.
Previous sampling by Silver Range and others has yielded values of up to 64.9 g/t gold and 1,770 g/t silver from vein material. Limited RC drilling on the property has not adequately tested the mineralized system.
Four large low sulphidation epithermal veins are exposed in a wider 500 x 200 metre area of silicification. Veins are up to 70 metres long and 2.0 metres thick. All indications are the exposed mineralization is on the periphery of a larger system. Prior geological mapping and drill results indicate that the host tuffs, the large silicified breccia and the high-grade veins dip towards the Cold Springs valley and are down-dropped beneath alluvium across a range front fault.
The mineralization exposed on the hill at Cold Springs appears to be merely the eastern periphery of a larger epithermal system. Geophysical surveys have identified a large resistivity low west of the range front fault and the exposed mineralization in basement rocks beneath alluvium. This is interpreted to be argillic alteration surrounding the core of the hydrothermal system.
SUPERNOVA is a growth-oriented exploration company focused on acquiring and advancing natural resources opportunities within North America. SUPERNOVA has a growing and diversified portfolio of assets, including revenue generating oil production, as well as Lithium, Vanadium, Silver and Gold assets.
