Rock Chip Results from Dalny Licence, Kazakhstan

East Star Resources Plc (LSE:EST), the Kazakhstan-focused gold, rare earths and copper explorer, is pleased to announce rock chip assay results from samples taken during geological surveys conducted over the Alatagyl target in April 2022 on the Dalny licence on the Chu-Ili Gold Belt in central Kazakhstan.

Highlights:

   --    Multiple mineralised quartz veins identified, co-incident with large gold in soil anomaly 
   --    All quartz vein samples contained gold mineralisation 
   --    Assayed samples on outcropping veins up to 27.4 g/t Au 
   --    >1,300 m of strike mapped at the Alatagyl occurrence 

Alex Walker, East Star CEO, commented:

"We are excited to be able to report on high-grade assay results from fieldwork conducted on the Dalny licence area. Sampling of quartz veins returned assay grades up to 27.4g/t Au in the Alatagyl zone.

The intrusive related Alatagyl target begins at surface and has a very large surface footprint; as such, combined with historical drill results, it has the potential to be a large orebody if the grade and quantity of veins are proven up in drilling.

With successful drilling results already identifying target areas in the Apmintas licence, including Novoe (63m @ 4.51g/t), Eshkilitau II (14m @ 2.54g/t) and historic results from Southern Shabdar (24.9m @ 2.86g/t), we are very excited to add yet another potential orebody to our growing portfolio."

Background

The Alatagyl group of occurrences consists of the Alatagyl North, Alatagyl, Alatagyl South and Astronomicheskiy target areas. Alatagyl South and Astronomicheskiy have been identified from magnetic signature and mineralized float including altered intrusive rock and vein quartz and quartz/sulphide stockwork material, but are largely obscured by overburden so did not form a part of this study.

The Alatagyl gold occurrence is confined to the hinge zone of an anticlinal fold that was intruded by Middle Devonian granites. North-south and east-west striking quartz vein zones are located in the contact of a felsite stock. Sedimentary rocks around the stock were subjected to sericitization, carbonatization, and silicification over a width of 50 to 200 m. The mineralised vein stockwork covers approximately 1,300 m x 700 m and occurs in the hinge zone of an anticlinal fold. The quartz veins and host rocks at the contact contain disseminated pyrite, arsenopyrite and gold.

In 1966, a total of 5,000 rock chip samples and 108 channel samples were collected. In the rock chip samples the gold grades varied from 0.03 to >10 g/t Au. In the 53 channel samples, the gold grade was between 0.1-5.6 g/t Au. At the occurrence, a large gold in soil anomaly was noted. The gold content in soil samples reached 0.8 g/t Au.

The occurrence contains three mineralised zones of east-west and north-west strike. Vein zones were traced for 250-390 m along strike with a width of 20 to 100 m. From those veins, artisanal gold miners recently dug several shallow pits and stockpiled quartz vein material for metallurgical tests.

In an initial reconnaissance trip, the Company's geological team took a first set of 8 rock chip samples at Alatagyl around historical trenches which are often fully rehabilitated. The composite quartz vein samples returned with gold grades between 0.027 and 27.4 g/t Au, and thus confirm the prospectivity of the area. The cluster of samples with significant gold mineralisation in the west (1.27 g/t to 27.4 g/t) clearly point to a high grade mineralised system.

A follow-up exploration campaign for Alatagyl will be planned for later in 2022.
