Advance United Holdings (AUHI) Acquires Additional Land Expanding Doyle Property to Over 8,100 Acres
- Favorable summer work program indicates a high potential zone which extends beyond the previously existing claims.
- 57 new and additional claims encompass this high potential zone and expand Doyle Property to 2,850 hectares in size.
- Expanded area includes similar geological units to those seen on the original Doyle Property and typically fall into the category of "orogenic gold deposit" types in brittle-ductile structurally related regimes similar to the Timmins Gold Camp, the Hemlo Gold Deposits, and the gold deposits of the Doyon-Bousquet Camp in Quebec.
Toronto, September 14, 2021 - Advance United Holdings Inc. (CSE: AUHI) (FSE: 9I0) (the "Company" or "Advance United") is pleased to report that based on the results of the recent interpretation of the Terraquest airborne survey (see related press dated August 24, 2021) and on known and potential geological extensions of favorable geology the Doyle Property has been expanded by the addition of 57 additional claims.
The geophysical interpretation report identifies structural and geologic controls for gold mineralization on the Doyle Property which have were utilized to identify the new claim areas and the expansion of the property. The expansion is based on extension of VLF anomalies, similar topographic features, similar resistivity responses, and newly discovered favorable geological units.
The claims have been added in three general areas east, north, and west of the existing property (Figure 1). These extend the to cover extensions of potential gold bearing structures identified in the interpretation of the airborne survey.
Interpretation of the VLF-EM data shows many anomalies extending off the property, some of which are known to host mineralization. These are designated No 1, No. 2A and No. 2B on Figure 2. Also of interest is a resistivity high associated with a major fault - designated No. 3 on Figure 2 which is similar to the feature associated with the main gold occurrences found on surface and may be related to possible alteration by silica (quartz). This is thought to be a significant alteration feature. A similar resistivity high was identified on the northwestern boundary of the existing property and the decision was made to add additional claims in this area.
Other areas were added to cover proposed extensions of VLF-EM anomalies described in the interpretation report. In addition, a previously described "brecciated iron formation" with sulphide mineralization is located on property added to the northeast. These types of units are known to host gold mineralization in other areas.
Advance United CEO Jim Atkinson states, "We are pleased with the excellent results obtained from the airborne survey and are excited to expand our footprint to cover extensions of known trends. We are preparing a work program to include these new areas and will be completing follow-up work in 2022. This further exemplifies the value of the Company's business model to re-work data to document potential, quantifiable resources and reserves using current standards and modern technology, thus increasing the value of the property."
About the Doyle Property
The Doyle Property is located approximately 92 kilometers southeast of Wawa, Ontario within the Batchewana Volcanic Belt of the Abitibi Province. The structural and geological architecture of the Batchawana Greenstone belt is conducive to a variety of gold depositional environments similar in nature and significance to other gold bearing deposits in Archean-aged greenstone belts hosted within the Superior Province. Noteworthy, these typically fall into the category of "orogenic gold deposit" types in brittle-ductile structurally related regimes similar to the Timmins Gold Camp, the Hemlo Gold Deposits, and the gold deposits of the Doyon-Bousquet Camp in Quebec. Orogenic gold deposit types would be the focus of future exploration activities on the Doyle Property.
The Doyle Property lies within the Batchawana Greenstone Belt of the Wawa-Abitibi Terrane, both of which are well known for hosting orogenic gold deposits.
Three styles of orogenic gold mineralization occur on the property. These are, but not limited to:
Gold-enriched semi-massive to massive sulphide horizons in a felsic tuff volcanic pile
Lode gold auriferous quartz veins, and
Disseminated gold in silicified and pyritized shear zones
The entire Doyle Property consists of a total of 166 unpatented mining claim cells and covers an area of approximately 2,820 hectares.
The most significant and recent exploration on the Doyle Property was carried out by Tri-Origin Exploration which included drilling programs from 1990 - 1995. These programs are deemed significant, and their geological observations support deposit model types being sought. The Focus of the Tri-Origin work was on a model of similarity of the Doyle property geology and mineralization to the Hemlo deposit, which has produced over 21 million ounces of gold according to Barrick Gold's website. Tri-Origin completed geological, geophysical, and geochemical programs and drilled a total of 37 drill holes for 8,053 m. Anomalous gold values were intersected in numerous drill holes and visible gold was observed in two holes. Drill hole T94-22 intersected 49.58 g/t gold over one meter and drill hole T95-34 intersected 17.49 g/t gold over one meter.

We are a different kind of Canadian junior mining company, one designed to succeed where other junior mining companies fail. We are involved exclusively in the acquisition and advancement of past producing gold mines - with no intent to bring them back into production or to mine them ourselves. Our expertise is in identifying and acquiring undervalued gold properties with significant historical work, which were uneconomic at the time, but we believe have economic value at today's price of gold.
We fund the development of re-working historic data and applying modern technology to underwrite new qualified reports, document quantifiable resources and reserves to current standards, thereby recognizing the current value.
Our purpose is to bring immediate and long-term value to our partners and shareholders while seeking to eliminate exploration risk, so that we can all advance united in the shortest possible time frame.
