TORONTO, June 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CR Capital Corp. (TSX-V / CIT) (“CR Capital” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that field work is commencing on its recently optioned 445 hectare Mt. Jamie North Property (the “Property”). On June 3, 2020, the Company signed an option agreement to acquire the Property (see the Company’s press released dated June 3, 2020). The purpose of the field work is to follow up on historical surface showings as well as projected surface extensions of mineralization from the adjacent Mt. Jamie Mine Property which is south east of the Property. The previously identified trends include the West Mt. Jamie Gold Trend, Mt. Jamie Mine Gold Trend, North Vein Gold Trend, Golden Tree Gold Trend, and North Golden Tree Gold Trend.
The initial program will consist of prospecting and sampling of the Property as outlined by the map below.

The Property occupies the boundary between the Balmer Assemblage (2.99-2.96 Ga) and the Ball Assemblage (2.94-2.92 Ga). Contacts between major metavolcanic assemblages in Red Lake have proven to be highly prospective, and most major gold deposits in Red Lake have been found within several hundred meters of similar contacts.
CR Capital is also pleased to announce that it has engaged the services of Mr. Tim Twomey as a consulting geologist. Mr. Twomey is a professional geologist with over 36 years of exploration, production and management experience. He brings a track record that includes playing a key role in Goldcorp’s “High-Grade Zone” discovery, development and production at Red Lake and was a key part of the team at Goldcorp that compiled data and then targeted gold mineralization from Lake Winnipeg to east of Pickle Lake. It is an unparalleled mining success and is regarded as the highest-grade gold mine in the world. Mr. Twomey has also previously worked with Premier Gold Mines Ltd, Yamana Gold Inc. and Mega Precious Metals, all of whom have or have had significant gold exploration projects in the Red Lake Camp.
Brian Howlett, President & CEO, echoed previous employers’ words, “Tim epitomizes the spirit of enthusiasm and innovation in exploration. He will bring a keen eye and mind to CR Capital, and help develop exploration concepts and targets on the recently acquired Mt. Jamie North property, which is adjacent to the Mt. Jamie Mine, and on trend with the Rowan and Red Summit Mines.” Mr. Howlett further added that, “Tim’s dedication to his work will be a critical catalyst for the tremendous growth that CR Capital expects to see in the near future, and we feel very fortunate that he has accepted this opportunity to work with the Company.”
The Red Lake greenstone belt is famous for high grade gold mineralization and has produced, from 1930 to the present, more than 25 million ounces of gold.
