Waterloo Mine Dump

Program Details:

Three Samples taken from the Waterloo Mine Dump confirmed the presence of silver with sample B846255 returning a silver value of 3450 g/t (110.4 oz/), sample B846297 returning 792 g/t silver (25.3 oz/t) and sample B846259 analysing at 752 g/t (24.7 oz/t) silver. Only trace amounts of gold were reported from these samples. All three samples can be described as white quartz with common orange Fe weathering and 2-10% sulfides, predominantly pyrite and galena.

Four samples taken from historical adits and workings located at the West Lightning Park Zone returned the highest silver values of the sampling program. Sample B846266, described as white quartz with common to abundant pyrite, chalcopyrite and minor galena, contain 7470 g/t silver (239 oz/t) and 39.8 g/t gold (1.27 oz/t) Sample B846266 was hand collected from the historical ore sort waste pile where it appeared the historical miners had high graded their ore by hand before transporting it down the mountain.

Sample B846269 was collected from a waste dump pile located outside an historical adit. The sample returned 4840 g/t silver (154.9 oz/t) and 9.9 g/t gold. Sample B846269 consisted of white quartz with up to 10% pyrite and galena.

Sample B846264 was taken from the wall rock beside the mined out remnants of a quartz vein and was described as having a mottled appearance due to the mixing of white quartz with the surrounding dark metavolcanic country rock; only scattered sulfides were visible in the sample. The sample had a notable orange weathered surface, likely limonite. Sample B846264 returned a silver value of 1955 g/t (62.6 oz/t) and 9.1 g/t gold.

Sample B846268 was collected from a white quartz vein 20m inside a second adit approximately 100m north east of the first adit. This sample consisted of white quartz with up to 10% pyrite and galena. Sample B846268 analysed at 243 g/t silver (7.8 oz/t) with 4.4 g/t gold.

A new area dubbed the East Zone was first explored this past September as newly created logging roads and clear cuts provided increased access into the area. Sample B846292 was collected from a fresh road cut and analysed at 494 g/t silver (15.8 oz/t) and 9.7 g/t gold. Sample B846292 was described as white quartz and carbonate vein material, very Fe stained, with up to 10% galena and sphalerite and possible hematite.

Sentinel management is very encouraged with these initial results and is underway with planning a follow up work program at Waterloo. Details regarding follow up work will be disseminated when finalized.

Note: the reader is cautioned that grab rock samples are selective by nature and may not represent the true grade or style of mineralization across the Property.

The Waterloo Property is in south central British Columbia on the northern flank of Lightning Peak approximately 60km due east of Kelowna BC . The property is situated in the Vernon Mining Division. The property is centered at UTM 388200E, 5529240N (zone 11) and is located on NTS map sheets 82E/15 and 82E/16.

Greg Bronson , P.Geo. the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed, and approved the technical contents of this news release on behalf of the Company.

QA/QC Protocol

Rock samples were personally collected by Greg Bronson , P.Geo. and remained in his custody until personally delivered to ALS Laboratories in North Vancouver, BC , for sample preparation and analyses. Primary analytical methods used by ALS included a multi element package, AuME-TL43, with a 25g aqua regia digestion and ICP-MS finish. Samples testing over detection limits for Ag, Pb, Zn were reanalysed using method ME-OG46, where a 0.4g specimen was analysed with Aqua Regia digestion and an ICP-AES finish. Over limit Ag samples were retested using method Ag-OG46 utilizing an Aqua Regia digestion followed by a fire assay with gravimetric finish. Those samples assaying over 1500ppm (g/t) with method Ag-OG46 were reanalysed using method Ag-GRA21 which involved the fire assay of a 30g sample followed by a gravimetric finish. Over limit Au samples were retested using method Au-ICP21 which uses a 30g sample for fire assay with an ICP-AES finish. Those Au samples still over limit were analysed with method Au-GRA21 which utilizes a fire assay followed by a gravimetric finish. ALS Laboratories practices stringent Quality Control Protocols with an insertion frequency of 14% for exploration and ore grade samples which includes sample reduction blanks and duplicates, method blanks, weighted pulp replicates and reference materials. There were no QA/QC failures in the above sample batch.

Graphite Metallurgical Test Work Update


  • Bulk sample of Springdale graphite concentrate estimated to be completed in Q2 2021.
  • Concentrate material will then be sent to Germany to test its amenability for the production of battery anode material suitable for use in EVs.
  • Final test results expected in Q3 2021.

Comet Resources Ltd (ASX:CRL) is pleased provide an update on ongoing test work on natural flake graphite from its Springdale Graphite Project (Springdale) located in Western Australia. Both excellent grade and recoveries were achieved on initial tests, leading to commencement of work to produce a bulk sample for further testing. Importantly, the graphite concentrates previously produced demonstrated a unique and potentially very valuable characteristic in its small size distribution, with two-thirds of the product passing the 38 µm size fraction screen. Generally, this small size fraction of graphite is a by-product of processing of larger flake fractions, which produces smaller size graphite, but in doing so also damages the smaller flake material in the process, reducing their performance and value. Deposits that contain high quality ultra-fine graphite are uncommon and are potentially suitable for supplying the expanding battery anode market, which continues to grow as the sales of electric vehicles (EVs) increase. Graphite suitable for battery anode production also achieves premium pricing in graphite markets, making it a highly sought-after product.
