Kesselrun Resources Provides Corporate Update
THUNDER BAY, ON, December 21, 2021 – Kesselrun Resources Ltd. (TSXV:KES; OTCPink: KSSRF) (“Kesselrun” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide the following update.
As 2021 comes to a close and the Huronian exploration program breaks for the holidays our team is diligently integrating the data into the model as we plan the recommencement of drilling in the new year.
Highlights of 2021
Huronian Gold Project
- Drilling continues with approximately 23,000 metres completed since drilling commenced in 2020
- All known zones in Huronian mine area extended in strike and depth
- Assays are pending for approximately 8,000 metres of drilling
- 2021 drilling has come under budget
- Targets outside the immediate Huronian mine area in final stages of planning for 2022 programs
Bluffpoint Gold Project
- Remodeling of historic data resulting in a new mineralization model
- 2022 exploration plans being finalized with an initial phase consisting of an airborne magnetic survey and an alteration study
Michael Thompson, P.Geo., President and CEO of the Company, commented, “We are very pleased with the results from this year’s drill program at Huronian. In a year filled with challenges from drilling interruptions due to the record forest fire season, extended lab turnaround times and the ongoing issues caused by the pandemic, we were still able to execute our exploration program under budget while producing fantastic results. The new year will be an exciting one as we continue to expand the size of all the zones around the Huronian mine as well as beginning to test targets elsewhere on the project. With the recent financing we are well positioned to execute in 2022.”

About the Huronian Gold Project
The 100% owned Huronian Gold Project hosts the past producing Huronian Mine, Northwestern Ontario’s first gold mine with an historic resource estimate of 44,592 oz Au at an average grade of 15.3 g/t Au in the indicated category and 501,377 oz Au at an average grade of 14.4 g/t Au in the inferred category. The resource estimate presented for the Huronian Project is historic in nature. Kesselrun Resources’ qualified person has not completed sufficient work to confirm the results of the historical resource. Kesselrun Resources is not treating this as a current mineral resource but is considering it relevant as a guide to future exploration and includes it for reference purposes only. The historic resource was estimated by Minescape Exploration Inc. in 1998. Further drilling will be required by Kesselrun Resources to verify the historic estimate as current mineral resources.
As well, the Huronian Gold Project hosts the same lithological package of rocks, as interpreted from both Government of Ontario and Kesselrun Resources mapping, compilation and modelling, on strike from the Goldshore Resources adjacent Moss Lake Gold Deposit with an historic resource estimate of 1,377,300 oz Au at an average grade of 1.1 g/t Au in the indicated category and 1,751,600 oz Au at an average grade of 1.1 g/t Au in the inferred category as outlined in Wesdome Gold Mines’ 2013 PEA (1). Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on Kesselrun Resources’ property.
- Moss Lake Gold Mines (a subsidiary of Wesdome Gold Mines at the time) news releases February 20, 2013 and September 9, 2013. On January 26, 2021, Wesdome Gold Mines announced that the Moss Lake Project would be purchased by Goldshore Resources Inc. (see Wesdome and Goldshore news releases dated January 26, 2021).
