Red Metal Reports Assay Results of 5.7 metres at 1.91% CuEq
VANCOUVER, BC, June 2nd, 2022 – Red Metal Resources Ltd. (the “Company” or “Red Metal”) (CSE:RMES, OTCPINK:RMESF) is pleased to announce the assay results for four of the nine holes drill in our winter 2022 diamond drill program on our Carrizal property.
- Results for four drillholes out of nine holes drilled being reported are consistent with historic drilling
- FAR-022-020 5.7 metres of 1.10% Cu, 0.12% Co and 0.25 g/t Au, a first intercept on a new vein previously only sampled at surface, the Gordal Vein
- FAR-22-017 3.6 metres of 1.36% Cu, 0.01% Co and 0.42 g/t Au,, this intercept confirms continuity of the mineralized structure and extends mineralization approximately 25 metres down dip to a vertical depth of approximately 200 metres on the south Farellon zone
- Mineralization remains open down dip on all areas drilled
Table 1: Assay Results(1)(2)
- Widths are drill indicated core length as insufficient core drilling has been undertaken to determine true widths with at this time.
- CuEq% based on CuEq%= ((Cu lb/t*US$3.75.lb) +(Co lbs/t*US$20/lb) +(Au g/t*0.03215*US$1,750/oz))/US$3.75/lb Cu insitu value and does not account for metallurgical, refining or other losses
Caitlin Jeffs, President, CEO comments: “The results from our newly drilled Gordal Vein confirm we have potential for multiple veins on the property with the same style of mineralization and alteration as the historically drilled Farellon vein”.
The 2,010 metre 2022 winter diamond drill program focused on extending known mineralization on the Farellon vein down dip on both the North and South ends of the 1.5 kilometre vein that had been historically drilled and also tested a new vein previously only sampled on surface.
Work is ongoing on the Carrizal property to continue to expand our knowledge of the Gordal vein through mapping of structures and alteration on surface. The first significant amount of diamond drilling has allowed the geological team to better understand the mineralized structures and associated alteration that can now be applied to the rest of the property. The mapping program which will result in new targets which will be tested in the next phase of drilling. Management believes there remains significant unrealized potential in the numerous veins observed on surface but not yet thoroughly investigated.

Red Metal has implemented a quality control program to comply with industry best practices for sampling, chain of custody and analyses. Certified copper gold reference standards, blanks and duplicates are inserted at the core processing site as part of the QA/QC program in addition to the control samples inserted by the lab. Samples are prepared and analyzed by ALS laboratories in La Serena, Chile and Lima, Peru. Samples are analyzed for gold using Fire Assay-AA techniques. All samples are analyzed using a 33 element 4 acid digestion ICP analysis method and copper samples over 10,000 ppm are analyzed again for just copper using the same analysis method. All results reported herein have passed QA/QC protocols.
The technical information in this release has been reviewed and verified by Caitlin Jeffs, P. Geo., President, CEO of the Company and the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43- 101.
