Leocor Gold Begins RAB Drilling At Dorset Project, Baie Verte District, Newfoundland

Vancouver, British Columbia – June 13, 2023Leocor Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “Leocor”) (CSE: LECR, OTCQB: LECRF) is pleased to announce that RAB drilling has begun on the Dorset Project within the Company’s Baie Verte District landholdings, Newfoundland, Canada.

The Baie Verte District is home to the Point Rousse gold mine now owned by Signal Gold and the Ming copper and gold mine belonging to Rambler Metals and Mining (Figure 1).

“We are excited to announce the beginning of our RAB drilling at Dorset as part of Leocor’s planned $1.2 million 2023 exploration program,” said CEO, Alex Klenman.  “RAB drilling is a very mobile and cost-effective tool we are utilizing to target the sub-surface with instant XRF analysis and downhole optical viewing. The Dorset Project remains a top priority for Leocor based on our impressive inaugural RAB results from 2022, and we’re looking forward to continuing the project’s development,” continued Mr. Klenman.

A total of 16 RAB drill holes are planned for the Dorset Project.  RAB drilling will continue to test and expand on the Sharpie Ridge gold occurrence with seven RAB holes where in late 2022 drilling returned 2.32 g/t Au over 10.67 m and 10.2 g/t Au over 1.52m.  An additional two RAB holes will be completed at Copper Creek target where in 2022 drilling returned 0.58% % Cu over 9.12m, which includes 1.095% Cu over 1.52m.

Two RAB holes will be completed at the Dorset Gunshot/Braz occurrence where in 2022 drilling returned 3.18 g/t Au over 4.57 m.  An additional seven RAB holes will target the Dorset Trend where a large 1 x 2 km gold-in-soil anomaly was outlined by 2022 soil sampling efforts (Figure 2). The extensive gold-in-soil anomaly is “one of the most clustered and anomalous” he has seen, says Leocor’s Technical Advisor, Shawn Ryan.

The RAB drilling will be completed by GroundTruth Exploration Inc. using their “GT RAB Drill,” a Heli-Portable, wireless remote-controlled, rubber tracked platform with a hydraulic tilting mast assembly and rotary drill head.  The GT RAB Drill is environmentally friendly with low-ground pressure and minimal surface disturbance. Individual drill holes can be up to 100m in depth and are paired with onsite XRF analysis and optical televiewer surveys, allowing rapid evaluation of the target areas.
