Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, July 20, 2021– X-Terra Resources Inc. (TSXV: XTT) (FRANKFURT: XTR) is pleased to announce that it has completed its phase 1,2021 drill exploration program on its wholly-ownedTroilus East property,located approximately 135 kilometres from the town of Chibougamau in the province of Québec.
The program has exceeded X-Terra Resources’ expectations, as the principal southwest target has revealed an important alteration system developed about three kilometres east of the Troilus Mine infrastructure.
Overall, the alteration system and mineralization observed, provides initial validation of the high priority anomaly at the Troilus East property. The intermediate volcanics and intrusions can be considered as the main host rock for the polymetallic sulphides, presenting as stringers, laminations, disseminated clots in contact with centimetric quartz veins or fractures. In addition, foliated and biotite-rich altered gabbro also hosts significant amount of disseminated pyrrhotite, reaching locally 10% in association with trace amounts of chalcopyrite.
A total of 10 holes totalling 1,560 metres was completed in this inaugural drill program. Two holes that were also planned to the south-east have been postponed due to extreme terrain challenges. They will be revisited during the second phase of drilling planned for later this summer.
X-Terra has now commenced planning the follow up exploration program, including additional geochemistry, with the expectation of extending the known mineralized corridor further to the northeast. In addition, a second round of drilling is also being planned and will be finalized once the current drill assays are received and compiled by the technical team.
