Jaxon is Preparing to Drill Test a Number of Pronounced Anomalies in October of 2018

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 20, 2018) – Jaxon Mining Inc. (TSXV: JAX) (FSE: 0U31) (OTC: JXMNF) is pleased to report it has received initial assay results from its first 112 chip samples from the Backbone Prospect at its Red Springs Project in BC and preparation for a drilling program is underway.

These chip sample results (see Table 1) and other 55 surface grab/chip sample results (Table 2) were collected at Backbone and North Cirque areas from the 2017 and early 2018 exploration seasons confirm up to 1000 metres of strike length at the high-grade gold-bearing tourmaline breccia mineralization zone at Backbone and North Cirque areas (Figure 1).

Highlights of the chip channel sampling program are:

  • 5 metres grading 6.78 grams per tonne (g/t) gold including 2 metres grading 15.28 grams per tonne (g/t) in Channel E;
  • 13 metres grading 2.86 grams per tonne (g/t) gold including 2 metres grading 8.96 grams per tonne (g/t) in Channel D and;
  • 1 metre grading 6.57 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 1.35 % copper in Channel A.

Importantly, most chip channels taken at tourmaline breccia zone have ended in good mineralization before the outcrop was covered by overburden and floats. Some chip channels such as Channel B and C taken from wall rocks also show reasonable gold mineralization. Other results included surface outcrops a further 200 metres north with channel samples of 1 m @ 1.07 g/t Au at the top of the mountain. Together, the separate chip channels covered at least 500 metres along the strike at Backbone area only. Chip Channel sample assays reported today total 112 samples with gold grades ranging from nil to 25.86 g/t Au. Chip channel samples are completed either over the tourmaline breccia zone or its wall rocks.

Other highlights include:

  • Cobalt grades from 4 grab samples in the gold-bearing tourmaline breccia zone in the North Cirque is up to 0.10% to 0.36%.
  • Another 80 chip channel samples from Backbone and North Cirque areas are expected to arrive in lab on Sept 20, 2018, to furtherly define the drilling targets for Jaxon’s 2018 drilling campaign.

With completion of surface chip channel sample program at Red Spring project, materials are being delivered for the construction of drill pads underway in Backbone and North Cirque areas.

Preliminary IP survey results at Backbone and North Cirque completed by Simcoe GeoScience are very encouraging (Figure 2) and are being evaluated to help define the drill targets.

John King Burns, Jaxon’s Chairman comments, “We are now preparing to drill test a number of anomalies indicated by our geophysical, surface and structural mapping and confirmed by our channel sampling work. Our team’s work continues to reveal more and more signs that we have discovered a remarkable and expansive poly metallic system. As the system’s scope is unfolding, each of our indicators is confirming the other and the geology holds together. The assay results currently received show consistent occurrences indicating the potential for the presence of more high grade gold mineralization with cobalt, copper and antimony credits. We are mobilizing to conduct an end of season, drill program that will test these very attractive anomalies at Backbone. Please stay tuned – if the weather holds and markets allow, the truth machines will start turning in the next few weeks.”

Qualified Person Yingting (Tony) Guo, P.Geo., COO for Jaxon Mining Inc., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed the chip channel sampling program, prepared the scientific and technical information and verified the data supporting such scientific and technical information contained in this news release.

Sample Preparation and Analyses:
Prospecting samples were collected in the field by experienced, professional prospectors and geological staff. The samples were numbered, described and located in the field for follow-up. Numbered rock samples tags were placed inside each bag which was securely closed for transport to Jaxon’s secure cold storage locked facility in Smithers, BC. Representative sample slabs were cut from large specimens and halved rock samples so that portions of select samples could be saved for the Jaxon’s rock library, descriptive purposes and petrographic study. Bureau of Veritas Commodities Canada, Metallurgical Division of Richmond B.C. received the Rice Bag shipments after secure transport from Smithers and they prepared the samples by crushing, grinding and pulverizing to a pulp with barren material washing between each sample at the crush and pulverizing stages. Then 30 g of pulp was used for the gold assay using code A0368AUAA1 Au by Fire Assay, AAS finish in g/mt and over limit gold using code A0364AU Au FA/Gravity in g/mt. Tellurite assay using code AMA270TE_R ICP ES/MS_Multi Acid. Other elements assay using code ICPMA270 ICP ES/MS_ Multi Acid.
