Additional High-Grade Values Continue to Support the Project’s Robust Potential

VANCOUVER, BC / TheNewswire / May 14, 2024 – Element79 Gold Corp. (CSE: ELEM) (OTC: ELMGF) (FSE: 7YS0) (“Element79”, the “Company”) reports additional assay results from underground sampling at its flagship Lucero property, Peru, including samples up to 98 g/t gold and 2,034 g/t silver (sample 2508).

Key Highlights:

Significant Mineral Endowment : A total of 455 samples underground channel samples have been collected from this latest phase, representing nearly 600 kg (620kg) of mineralization and 650 kg of wall rock, underwent comprehensive analysis by our partners at Ore Discovery and unveiled significant exploration potential. Notably, results in 115 samples returned substantial values in gold (Au) (ranging from 1.0 g/t to 98.1 g/t), silver (Ag) (ranging from 0.7 g/t to 3,026 g/t), lead (Pb) (as high as 2.0%) and zinc (Zn) (up to 3.5%), highlighting the robust potential of Lucero’s mineral endowment.

High-Grade Mineralization: Among these, 17 samples exhibited gold values surpassing 10 g/t, with 8 samples exceeding 20 g/t, and 51 samples boasting silver values exceeding 100 g/t Ag. Of particular significance are 15 high-grade samples with values ranging from 12.65g/t to an impressive 98.1g/t of Au, and remarkable silver values of 62.1 g/t to 3,026 g/t and up 3.24% Zn. These findings reaffirm the potential for exceptional high-grade mineralization.

Geochemistry total Statistics: Total of 455 samples, 58% has grades over 0.1 g/t Au; 26% has grades over 1 g/t Au; and 9% has grades over 5 g/t Au. Notably most of grades below 0.1 g/t Au correspond to wall rock (foot or hanging wall).
