Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 2, 2024) – Forge Resources Corp. (CSE: FRG) (OTCQB: FRGGF) (FSE: 5YZ) (“FRG ” or the “Company “) is pleased to announce that Forge Resource Corp’s Phase 1 diamond drilling program that started in November 2023 is now complete with the successful completion of 6 holes, each ranging between 420-502 metres in length. Additionally, further to its news release dated June 14, 2024, the Company has completed its non-brokered flow-through private placement.

All geotechnical and geological data has now been collected. All holes are sampled top to bottom with the majority of sample batches have already been submitted to the ALS prep-lab in Whitehorse. Significantly, higher molybdenum and +/- chalcopyrite concentrations and more quartz veining, micro-veining and stockworks were encountered in this year’s drilling than in November 2023.

  • Significant porphyry style rock types, alteration and mineralization were encountered in all holes.
  • Majority of the rock types are sparse to semi-crowded to crowded porphyry intrusives related to the Dawson Range.
  • Pervasive brown biotite alteration with extensive silicification overprinting is occurring in all holes.

Assay results are pending.

Phase 2 diamond drilling program is being proposed for this summer when all assays have been received and analysed from the Phase 1 program. It is anticipated that further drilling will be required in areas previously tested. Additional high-quality target areas not yet drill tested will be included in the next drilling program.
