recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(businesspress24) - - Visible gold observed in 6 of logged drill holes
- All holes have intersected mineralization and geology consistent with Freemans geological model and understanding
- Remaining 2,000 metres will focus on infill drilling within main historical resource area

SALMON, IDAHO- October 29, 2020 - Freeman Gold Corp. (CSE:FMAN) (OTC Pink: FMANF) (FSE:3WU) (Freeman or the Company) Will Randall, President and CEO, is pleased to provide an exploration update for its 100% owned Lemhi Gold Project, located in Idaho, USA (Lemhi or Project).

Two diamond drill rigs are currently operating around the clock at Lemhi, with 16 cored drill holes totaling 3,328 m completed to date (please refer to Table 1 for further details). The on-going drilling campaign has confirmed the presence of extensive gold mineralized horizons first established by historical exploration conducted between 1984 and 2013. Detailed geological logging of recovered core has noted multiple occurrences of visible gold from 5 holes drilled within the 30 square kilometer property. All drill holes to date have intersected mineralized zones of varying thickness as interpreted from historic drilling and drill sections. Samples have been sent to ALS Minerals Division, Vancouver, BC, and results are pending.

Will Randall, President & CEO, commented Our Phase 1 drill campaign is successfully underway and is confirming our understanding of the mineralization and geology of the Lemhi Gold Project. The mineralization is generally flat lying within Proterozoic metasediments. Quartz veining, silicification, brecciation and faulting dominate the mineralized zones and are oxidized from surface. Results have so far matched historical logs closely. Multiple flat lying, high grade zones, often containing visible gold, are stacked and may constitute a bulk tonnage target.

Phase 1 consists of a 5,000 metre, 33 priority hole diamond drill program and was designed to:

(1) Twin certain holes,

(2) Complete infill drilling along sections,
(3) Allow interpretation of the mineralization and structural controls,
(4) Complete initial bench scale metallurgy,
(5) Complete a maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate,

In addition to the on-going drill program, an extensive ground exploration program is being implemented at the Project. To date Freeman has completed 141 rock grab and channel samples, 633 soil samples, 181 line-kilometers of ground magnetics, high resolution drone photo mosaics and a 1.4 square kilometer three dimensional (3D) Induced Polarization (IP) survey.

All drill core, rock and soil samples are sent to ALS Minerals Division, Vancouver, BC, an independent and fully accredited laboratory in Canada for analysis for gold multi-element Induction Coupled Plasma Spectroscopy. Freeman Gold has a regimented Quality Assurance, Quality Control program where at least 10% duplicates, blanks and standards are inserted into each sample shipment. Additionally, select soil samples were sent to SGS Canada Inc.
