Toronto, Canada (August 8, 2017) - Mammoth Resources Corp. (TSX-V: MTH), (the "Company") is pleased to announce additional results from its surface channel program at its Tenoriba precious metal property in Chihuahua State, Mexico. The Company announced earlier this year its plans to embark on a program of infill PIMA sampling, drill road construction and channel sampling to better define drill targets which followed prior surface sampling and an IP and Magnetometer geophysics survey over a prospective 15 square kilometre area at Tenoriba. Mammoth has sampled gold ubiquitously over the property reporting results as high as 75 grams per tonne (g/t) and drill intersections, the highest grade of which was 45.6 g/t gold over 1.9 metres. The Company completed 14 channels totaling almost 200 metres in length where 139 samples were analyzed for gold, silver and multi-elements in the Cerro Colorado, El Moreno, Masuparia and Los Carneritos areas on the property (refer to Figure 1 - Channel Sample Location Map). The most recent results from El Moreno (refer to Figure 2 - El Moreno Channel Location Map) and the Masuparia area, are shown in bold text together with previously reported results from this program:
|True Width (m)||
Gold Grade (g/t)
Silver Grade (g/t)
|El Moreno 1||330732 to 330740||13.60||11.50||0.64||2.5||0.67|
|Carneritos 1||330743 to 330750 & 330754 to 330756||15.75||15.50||0.99||6.1||1.07|
|Carneritos 2||330757 to 330761||7.40||7.00||1.28||8.2||1.36|
|Carneritos 3||330762 to 330770||13.50||13.50||1.50||3.4||1.55|
|El Moreno 2||330789 to 330800||16.5||16.0||0.38||4.3||0.44|
|El Moreno 3||330656 to 330659||6.0||5.0||0.28||0.6||0.29|
|El Moreno 4||330685 to 330673||12.0||11.0||0.23||9.7||0.36|
|Masuparia 1||330677 to 330685||13.1||13.1||0.66||0.9||0.67|
Any gold samples assaying greater than 10 g/t gold were reduced ("cut") to 10 gpt gold in any averaging.
* Gold Equivalent wherein silver grade is converted to gold grade at 75 g/t silver = 1 g/t gold.
Thomas Atkins, President and CEO of Mammoth commented on the channel sample results stating: "The two areas at El Moreno where the channels were cut are from 500 to 700 metres from one another and were chosen because of the rocks observed at these areas and the continuity of outcrop enabling cutting of lengthy channels. Average grade of the four channels was 0.47 grams per tonne gold equivalent over lengths of from 16 to 52 feet in individual channels for an average width of 41 feet in four channels while individual channel sample grades were as high as 3 grams per tonne. These are terrific channel dimensions separated by more than half a kilometer and at an average grade of 0.47 grams per tonne are equivalent and in some cases above those currently being economically mined in open pit heap leach mining operations in Mexico. These channel results continue to illustrate the continuous nature of gold-silver mineralization at various locations at Tenoriba along an approximate 6 kilometre trend, within the large, approximately 15 square kilometer mineralized area at Tenoriba. We look forward to reporting additional results in the near future from the remaining 7 channels cut at Tenoriba."
Results from this channel sampling program correspond well with geophysical features extending at depth below these channel samples and this correlation will be used to assist in locating attractive drill targets with the objective of extending surface results at depth and potentially begin to build a mineral resource at Tenoriba.
Qualified Person / Quality Controls:
Richard Simpson, P.Geo., Vice-President Exploration for Mammoth Resources Corp. is Mammoth's Qualified Person, according to National Instrument 43-101, for the Tenoriba property and is responsible for and has reviewed any technical data mentioned in this news release. Samples referenced in this press release were prepared and analyzed by ALS CHEMEX in their facilities in Mexico and Canada, respectively. Samples generally consisted of over a minimum of 2 kilograms of material. Gold and silver analyses were performed by 30 gram fire assay with an Atomic Absorption finish. Silver, copper, lead and zinc were analyzed as part of a multi-element ICP package using an aqua regia digestion. Over limit samples with greater than 1% Cu, Pb and Zn were re-analyzed using ore grade detection limits. Blank and duplicate samples were inserted randomly at approximately every 20 samples.
