Radisson Identifies New Gold Target Area with more than 2 km Strike Length at the New Alger Area
Radisson Mining Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RDS, OTCQB: RMRDF) (“Radisson” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from the first phase of an extensive glacial till sampling program, during the 2023 summer, in the southern sector (“New Alger“) of the O’Brien project (“O’Brien” or the “Project”), an area having a geological context similar to that of Agnico Eagle’s Canadian-Malartic Complex (see Figure 1).
- 115 glacial till surface sample collected and analyzed by IOS Services Geoscientifiques
- 14 anomalous samples forming a southward dispersion gold grain tail in the western tier of the property
- Brand new target area with more than 2-kilometre (“km”) strike length with potential for gold discovery identified
- 15.5 km2 of additional claims staked expanding the property to 74.3 km2.
“We are pleased to share that results from the first phase of our summer 2023 glacial till sampling program at New Alger are very encouraging and have outlined a new target area of interest showing strong potential for gold mineralization over a strike length exceeding 2 km,” commented Radisson’s Geology Director, Vivien Janvier. “A total of 14 anomalous samples with between 10 and 45 pristine gold grains, suggestive of proximal provenance, were located in the western portion of the New Alger area leading us to identify a new highly prospective target area (see Figure 2). As a result of these findings, we’ve staked additional claims and plan to expand our 2024 exploration programs to include detailed prospecting work, trench sampling and, potentially, drilling to better understand the mineralization potential of this new target area. In addition to these promising sampling results, we look forward to sharing initial results from the first 5,300 metres of our ongoing drill program, currently focused on adding ounces to the existing resource estimate at O’Brien, in the coming weeks.”
Glacial Till Sampling Program Explainer:
The Canadian-Malartic Complex, part of the Pontiac Group of sediments, which has similar geology to New Alger, is one of the world’s largest gold mining operations, having produced close to 13.7 million ounces of gold¹. The gold mineralization in this area is associated with porphyry intrusions, dykes, and shear zones, highlighting the significant potential for gold mineralization within the Pontiac Group. The Radisson geological team commissioned an initial glacial till sampling program to identify areas with gold endowment. The concept is that, in the course of the last Wisconsinian glacial event, bedrock and auriferous zones have been eroded by ice movement, and their gold particles content dispersed southward. The survey included three sampling profiles at the south end of the property, intended to intercept the dispersion of a potential deposit situated north, neighbouring the Cadillac break. An anomalous gold grain tail was detected on the western portion of the property. With the sampling profile having not detected the dispersion of the O’Brien deposit, the length of the dispersion is believed to be limited to approximately 2 km within the property perimeter (see Figure 2). The area has limited outcropping, and consequently has been underexplored. These results are very encouraging and warrant more comprehensive exploration work to assess the potential for additional discoveries.
About New Alger
New Alger is an over 74 square-kilometre land package with strong potential for gold, located near many prolific geological structures. During a prospecting campaign in 2022, a sample containing 7.33 grams of gold per tonne was collected, indicating the presence of at least one gold-rich zone in the area. The geological characteristics of New Alger are similar to those of historical and operating mines in the area, with potentially prolific shear-zones, intermediate to felsic dykes and intrusions present. The area is in continuity of the Amm Mine, which extracted 83,475 tonnes at 4.54 g/t Au between 1939 and 1942 and had estimated reserves of 219,000 tonnes of ore.

Radisson Mining Resources Inc.
Radisson is a gold exploration company focused on its 100% owned O’Brien project, located in the Bousquet-Cadillac mining camp along the world-renowned Larder-Lake-Cadillac Break in Abitibi, Québec. The Bousquet-Cadillac mining camp has produced over 25,000,000 ounces of gold over the last 100 years. The project hosts the former O’Brien Mine, considered to have been Québec’s highest-grade gold producer during its production.
