VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 26, 2023 /CNW/ - Prospect Ridge Resources Corp. (the "Company" or "Prospect Ridge") (CSE: PRR) (OTC: PRRSF) (FRA: OED) is pleased to announce positive gold, silver and base metals prospecting results on three showings. Grab samples were collected on our fully owned flagship Knauss Creek property located 35 km northeast of Terrace, BC.
- Grab sample C363284 returned 69.3 g/t Au, 331 g/t Ag and 5.78% Cu on the Copper Ridge showing;
- Grab sample C363279 returned 38.4 g/t Au, 51.8 g/t Ag and 3.19% Cu on the Copper Ridge showing;
- Grab sample C363283 returned 7.9 g/t Au, 198 g/t Ag and 10.42% Cu on the Copper Ridge showing;
- Grab sample C363277 returned 2.8 g/t Au, 974 g/t Ag, 33.3% Pb and 4.1% Zn on the Hugin showing;
- Grab sample C363144 returned 4.4 g/t Au, 627 g/t Ag and 0.58% of Pb on the Kandy showing.
The Copper Ridge showing is in the southern part of the property. The sampling was done on the ridge of the mountain around a staining in azurite and malachite that goes down on a vertical slope over a few tens of meters. Seven samples were taken on a north-south strike length of about 180 meters. The samples were collected in small quartz veins or fractures which contain malachite, azurite, chalcopyrite and pyrite. The results are listed in table 1.

The Kandy showing is located at more than 700 meters northwest of the Copper Ridge on another crest of Mount Knauss. Both showings are separated by a steep valley. Four samples were taken there and three of them contain anomalous values. Samples C363144 and C363148 are from quartz vein blocks. All samples were taken near the summit of this part of the mountain, it is assumed that the source is nearby. The results are shown in table 2.

The Hugin showing is near the middle of the property where the mountain is less steep. Eleven samples were taken as a complement of the channel samples already published in the December 14th, 2021 news release. Combined with the channels, these samples give a gold-silver anomaly over a length of 60 m. The sampling was done near the Gosling creek. The six best samples are in table 3.

All samples reported in this news release are from the 2021 campaign. Data reverification of all samples collected before 2022 on the Knauss Creek and Holy Grail properties was undertaken following an internal review of certain questions. After thorough verification, it was established that the values for samples W501711 and W501715 reported in the November 30th, 2021 news release were from the coarse fraction of metallic screening gold results. The published gold results for W501711 and W501715 should have been 11.2 g/t and 9.67 g/t respectively.
Michael Iverson PRR's CEO commented: "We are very happy with those high-grade results obtained in a very under explored area south of the Golden Triangle. 2022 summer campaign results are being digested as they are obtained and we will publish them in the coming months."

Grab samples and erratic blocks are selective by nature and grades may not be representative of mineralized zones. True thickness or mineralization style and geological models cannot be determined with the information currently available.
Rock samples were assayed for gold by standard 50 g fire-assaying with atomic absorption finish (FAS-121) or gravimetric finish (FAS-425) or 1000g metallic screening at MSALABS Laboratories in Terrace, British Columbia. Rock samples were also assayed for 35 metals from an aqua regia digestion with ICP-AES finish (ICP-130). For samples with overlimit results in silver, arsenic, copper, lead and zinc aqua regia with ICP finish was used (ICF-6 ore grade). A quality assurance/quality control program has been implanted and consists of inserting standards, blanks and duplicate on a regular basis in the samples stream.
All scientific or technical information included in this news release has been reviewed, verified and approved by Yan Ducharme, P.Geo., President of the Company and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. This news release was written by Yan Ducharme.
The fully owned Knauss Creek is about 35 kilometers northeast of the town of Terrace in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. It is easily accessible by highway 16 and a network of logging roads. It covers about 32 square kilometers and is contiguous to our optioned Holy Grail property.
Several gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc occurrences were found in the past. The most notable is the Dorreen mine where four adits were developed and, according to historical documents, around 700 tons of ore were mined out at an average grade of more than 10 g/t Au.
The southern tip of the Golden Triangle arrives just northwest of PRR properties. The Bowser Lake and the Hazelton Groups hosting most of the deposits and mines of this area are also underlying the Knauss Creek and Holy Grail.
Prospect Ridge Resources Corp. is a British Columbia based exploration and development company focused on gold exploration. Prospect Ridge's management and technical team cumulate over 100 years of mineral exploration experience and believes the Knauss Creek and the Holy Grail properties to have the potential to extend the boundaries of the Golden Triangle to cover this vast under-explored region.
