Rover Provides Update on Timing of Phase 2 Exploration Results at Cabin Gold Project, NT, Canada

Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (“Rover” or the “Company”) has received an update from ALS Canada and expects to be fully reported on the results of its Summer 2021 Phase 2 Drill Program, at its Cabin Gold Project, by the end of November. The Company anticipates issuing a news release on the results in early December.

About the Cabin Gold Project
In September 2020, Rover kicked-off its first exploration drilling program at the historic Cabin Gold Project. The exploration program included both confirmation and expansion drilling of historical high grade gold drill intercepts in the “Arrow Zone” area of the historic Bugow Iron Formation. The Bugow Iron Formation is the controlling structure for the gold mineralization on the property and is over 15 km in at or near surface length. In Q4-2020, the Company reported an intersection of 32 meters of continuous gold averaging 13.6 grams per ton Au from the Arrow Zone. Rover’s 2020 expansion drilling included the discovery of what it believes to be a primary gold bearing ore shoot at the Arrow Zone. The Arrow Zone remains open at depth, underneath Cabin Lake, and is only accessible for expansion drilling in the winter months. Rover’s 2020 drill program was the initial step towards confirming and expanding the historic 100,000 tons at 0.30 Oz/ton Au* historic resource estimate, reported for the Arrow Zone, towards a NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate. The Arrow Zone will see expansion drilling commencing in Q1-2022, as soon as the ice drill pads and ice road to site have been constructed.

In July 2021, Rover commenced a Phase 2 Exploration Program at the Cabin Gold Project. The goal of the Phase 2 Exploration Program was the discovery and definition of new, near surface, gold bearing zones along the Bugow Iron Formation. The Company focussed on five known historic targets areas: (1) the Beaver; (2) the Andrew South; (3) the Andrew North; (4) the Camp South; and (5) Camp North. As of the date hereof, the Company is still waiting on results of its summer exploration program. Any new discoveries will form part of the Company’s Phase 3 Winter Exploration Program slated to begin in Q1-2022.

(*) As per Section 2.4 of NI 43-101, Aber Resources Ltd. reported a mineral inventory (that does not compare to the current CIM Definitions Standards mineral resource categories) of 100,000 tons at 0.30 ounces per ton gold at the Cabin Lake Gold Zone on the north limb of the folded Bugow Iron Formation in their 1986 and 1987 annual reports. The parameters used for the resource calculation are unknown. These results are relevant as to delineate a larger zone of gold mineralization at the Cabin Lake Gold Zone, but further drilling is needed to bring that up to CIM Definition Standards. The reader is cautioned that a Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as current mineral resources and Rover Metals is not treating the historical estimates as current mineral resources.

Technical information in this news release has been approved by Raul Sanabria, M.Sc., P.Geo., Technical Advisor and shareholder of Rover Metals Corp. and a Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.
