  • Approx. 96,000m of planned 110,000m drill program completed
  • Resource update based on data up to July 31, 2022, expected before end of October
  • All drill results since mid-2022 are beyond planned October resource update
  • Further resource update planned for Q2 2023

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —  Mayfair Gold Corp. (“Mayfair” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: MFG; OTC: MFGQB) is pleased to announce the sixth set of results for 2022 from the Fenn-Gib drill program, which is mainly focused outside the current conceptual pit-constrained resource. Results from the seven new drill holes reported today confirm strong strike and depth expansion of the Fenn-Gib gold mineralization, which remains open in most directions.

Mayfair’s 100% controlled Fenn-Gib Project, located in the Timmins region of Northeast Ontario, hosts a NI43-101 Indicated Resource of 2.08M ounces (see the “About Mayfair” section below) with disseminated gold mineralization striking east-west on the Pipestone Fault over 1.25 kilometers (km) and up to 300 meters (m) wide at the west end. Based on assay results up to July 31, 2022, the Company is planning to provide a resource update before the end of October 2022. A further resource update is planned for Q2 2023 which will incorporate all the drill results since July 31, including those reported below.

Mayfair Gold President and CEO Patrick Evans commented: “Fenn-Gib has tremendous upside for growth based on the remarkably consistent assay results from our expansion drill program. The broadly disseminated gold mineralization continues from near-surface to depths below 600m. Although we have already completed approximately 96,000m of our planned 110,000m drill program, it’s apparent that the mineralization remains open in most directions.”

Highlight drill results include:

1.   FG22-242 intersected 1.40 grams/tonne (g/t) gold (Au) over 65.0m, including 1.79 g/t Au over 44.6m;

2.   FG22-250 intersected 0.87 g/t Au over 311.0m, including 1.08 g/t Au over 57.0m, including 1.10 g/t Au over 99.0m and 1.36 g/t Au over 33.6m;

3.   FG22-251 intersected 0.69 g/t Au over 158.0m, including 1.05 g/t Au over 85.0m;

4.   FG22-254 intersected 1.12 g/t Au over 102.0m, including 2.66 g/t Au over 25.3m;

5.   FG22-257B intersected 0.87 g/t Au over 68.3m, including 1.08 g/t Au over 38.6m.

The above drill results continue to intersect significant gold mineralization building on the previously reported Fenn-Gib results, including: hole FG21-153 intersected 233.0m at a grade of 1.05 g/t Au, including 84.0m at a grade of 1.83 g/t Au, and also including 25.5m at a grade of 4.70 g/t Au (news release August 17, 2021); hole FG21-148 which intersected 101.0m at a grade of 0.88 g/t Au, including 51.7m at a grade of 1.16 g/t Au; hole FG21-149 intersected 101.9m at a grade of 0.75 g/t Au, including 18.0m at a grade of 1.77 g/t Au; hole FG21-150 intersected 65.5m at a grade of 1.18 g/t Au, including 10.0m at a grade of 4.24 g/t Au (news release July 27, 2021); hole FG21-190 intersected 0.59 g/t Au over 158.0m, including 1.07 g/t Au over 34.0m, hole FG21-217C intersected 0.77 g/t Au over 184.5m, including 0.98 g/t Au over 62.0m, and including 1.31 g/t Au over 18.8m, and hole FG22-223 intersected 1.21 g/t Au over 112.1m, including 3.04 g/t Au over 31.5m (news release June 8, 2022); hole FG21-206 intersected 0.93 g/t Au over 134.2m, including 1.31 g/t Au over 78.3m, and hole FG21-213 intersected 1.02 g/t Au over 92.7m (news release May 2, 2022).

Drilling at Fenn-Gib is continuing with the support of three drill rigs. Additional drill results from the infill, expansion and step-out drill program will be announced as soon as they are received.

QA/QC Controls

Mayfair Gold (Mayfair) employs a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Surface drilling was conducted by Major/Norex Drilling of Timmins, Ontario and was supervised by the Mayfair exploration team. Mayfair’s drill program includes descriptive logging and sampling of the drill core for analysis at Mayfair’s secure facility located in Matheson, Ontario. Sampled drill core intervals were sawn in half with a diamond blade saw. Half of the sampled core was left in the core box and the remaining half was bagged and sealed. Mayfair utilizes accredited laboratories that include, Activation Laboratories Ltd. (Actlabs) and AGAT Laboratories Ltd. (AGAT) both located in Timmins, Ontario, and Swastika Laboratories Ltd located in Swastika, Ontario. Mayfair personnel transport the samples directly and deliver them to Actlabs, and samples are collected by both AGAT and Swastika personnel directly from Mayfair’s secure core logging facility in Matheson, Ontario. Gold was analyzed by 30-gram fire assay with AA-finish. Certified reference material (CRM) standards and coarse blank material are inserted every twenty samples. Mayfair completes routine third-party check assays. Drill intercepts cited do not necessarily represent true widths, unless otherwise noted.

About Mayfair

Mayfair is a Canadian gold exploration company focused on advancing the 100% controlled Fenn-Gib gold project in the Timmins region of Northern Ontario. The Fenn-Gib gold deposit is Mayfair’s flagship asset. An open-pit constrained NI 43-101 resource estimate (Source: “NI 43-101 Technical Report Fenn-Gib Project, Ontario, Canada” dated February 5, 2021, authored by JDS Energy and Mining, Inc. and Kirkham Geosystems Ltd.) reported a total Indicated Resource of 70.2M tonnes containing 2.08M ounces at a grade of 0.921 g/t Au and an Inferred Resource of 3.8M tonnes containing 75,000 ounces at a grade of 0.618 g/t Au. The deposit has a strike length of approx. 1.25km with widths ranging up to 300m. The gold mineralized zones remain open at depth and along strike to the east and west. Recently completed metallurgical tests confirm that the Fen-Gib deposit can deliver robust gold recoveries of up to 94%.
