GSP Resource Corp. Clarifies Copper Equivalency Calculations of Recent Alwin Mine Copper-Silver-Gold Project Drill Results

20.02.2024  |  The Newswire
Drill Hole AM23-01 Intersects 12.8m of 3.14% CuEq, including 5.7m of 6.77% CuEq

GSP Resource Corp. (TSXV:GSPR) (FRA:0YD) (the "Company" or "GSP") reports a correction to the copper equivalency calculation of its February 7, 2024 news release regarding the assay results of the recently completed surface diamond drill program at the Alwin Mine project (the "Alwin Property"). The previous disclosure had incorrectly calculated the conversion of tonnes to ounces, thereby understating the equivalent copper grade. There are no changes to the reported primary assay results or intervals of the individual metals. The updated equivalency table is presented below (see Figure 1.)

**CuEQ % = [Cu (%) x 1] + [Ag (g/t) x 0.007926] + [Au (g/t) x 0.606956]

(using $US8,800/tonne Cu, $US23/oz Ag. $US1,850/oz Au and historic recoveries 95.1% Cu, 89.7% Ag, 85.4% Au)

As previously reported, all drill holes intersected Copper-Gold-Silver mineralization at shallow depths, with hole AM23-01 reporting some of the highest grades of copper and precious metals drilled at the Alwin Property in the project's history (see news release dated February 7, 2024).

Drillhole AM23-01 intersected 2.42% Cu, 47.0 gpt Ag, and 0.57 gpt Au over 12.8m including a 5.7m interval averaging 5.21% Cu, 103.1 gpt Ag and 1.22 gpt Au.

The result of this drilling demonstrates the high-grade potential for the Alwin Property and reinforces the polymetallic upside with significant gold and silver values. GSP's data compilation exercise completed in 2023 suggests that many of the historic drillholes in the pre-2008 exploration of the property did not include assays for gold and silver.

The drill program, completed in November 2023, was designed to target high-grade copper zones at the Alwin Property located in the Highland Valley Copper Camp of British Columbia. A total of 5 HQ-size diamond drill holes were completed totaling 640 metres (see the Company's news release dated November 22, 2023). Drilling was completed from three sites over a 100-metre strike length targeting the upper and lower levels of the historic Alwin Mine "4 Zone" (Figure 1).

All five 2023 drill holes intersected sulphide mineralization, with multiple intervals encountered in drill holes AM-23-01, -02 and -03 targeting the historic 4 Zone at depth. Drill holes AM-23-04 and -05 targeted the historic 4 Zone near surface (Table 1, Figures 2 and 3).

Mineralization appears structurally controlled comprising chalcopyrite, minor bornite and pyrite, and associated varying intensity of sericitic, potassic, and chloritic alteration.

About the Alwin Mine Project: The Alwin Mine Copper-Silver-Gold property is approximately 575.72 hectares and is located on the semi-arid, interior plateau in south-central British Columbia. The historic underground mine was developed over 500 m long by 200 m wide by 300 m deep. Production took place between 1916 to 1981 from five major subvertical high-grade copper mineralization zones totaling 233,100 tonnes that milled 3,786 tonnes of copper, 2,729 kilograms of silver and 46.2 kilograms of gold. The average diluted head grade was 1.5% copper.

The Alwin Property is adjacent with the western boundary of Teck Corporation's Highland Valley Mine, the largest open-pit porphyry copper-molybdenum mine in western Canada. Alteration and mineralization of the Highland Valley hydrothermal system extends westward from the Highland Valley mine onto the Alwin Property (see GSP's news release dated January 30, 2020).

Methodology and QA/QC

The analytical work reported on herein was performed by ALS Global ("ALS"), Vancouver, Canada. ALS is an ISO-IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015 accredited geoanalytical laboratory and is independent of GSP Resource Corp. and the QP. Drill core samples were subject to crushing at a minimum of 70% passing 2 mm, followed by pulverizing of a 250-gram split to 85% passing 75 microns. Base and precious metals were determined via four-acid digestion 33 element ICP-AES geochemistry and overlimit values for copper (>1%) and silver (100 g/t) were analyzed via four-acid digestion ICP-AES or AAS.

GSP Resource Corp. follows industry standard procedures for the work carried out on the Alwin Mine Project, with a quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program. Blank, duplicate, and standard samples were inserted into the sample sequence sent to the laboratory for analysis. GSP Resource Corp. detected no significant QA/QC issues during review of the data. GSP Resource Corp. is not aware of any drilling, sampling, recovery, or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to herein.
