Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 30, 2022) - Big Gold Inc. (CSE: BG) (the "Company" or "Big Gold") is pleased to announce that it recently commenced a fall work program (the "Work Program") on its expanded Martin Kenty Project ("MKP") adjacent to First Mining's Cameron Lake project near Kenora, Ontario. The Work Program is designed to identify priority exploration targets within the newly acquired ground (see press release dated October 19, 2022) in the highly prospective Cameron Lake gold belt.
Work Program Highlights (see Figure 1):
- Prospecting at the North Star and Wicks showings
- Reconnaissance work on newly acquired ground east of Tweedsmuir
- Prospecting and ground sampling program on the Middle Ground showing
- Reconnaissance work on original MKP ground in the Brooks Lake Area
Results of the Work Program will be combined with the results of the 2021 exploration program to develop priority targets for a comprehensive Phase Two exploration program planned for H1 2023.
During the summer of 2021, Big Gold completed VTEM (electromagnetic) and Total Magnetic Intensity surveys covering 365 line-km, which identified several areas for further exploration and produced models that show that MKP hosts key attributes consistent with a gold-enriched system that is deep-seated and extensive. Gold mineralization from historical work appears to have attributes similar to the deposits in the Hemlo gold camp.* Gold mineralization at the historic gold occurrences on the MKP has been shown to be intimately associated with felsic intrusions and strongly sheared and altered sericitic pyritic schists that include green mica and tourmaline.
Big Gold also completed a surface sampling program in 2021 on the Hay Island showing (see Figure 1), which returned strong gold grades with traces of silver and base metals (see Table 1).

"As soon as we acquired the additional property in the area, we were able to get boots on the ground. We are focusing our efforts on areas of known historical work and also working to identify new areas of alteration and gold mineralization before winter. This early-stage work will provide us with new information that we can then use to plan a more comprehensive follow-up program," commented Big Gold President and CEO Scott Walters.
