TORONTO, ONTARIO / ACCESSWIRE / October 3, 2019 / Ubique Minerals Limited (“Ubique”)(CSE:UBQ) announces it has completed seven diamond drill holes at Daniel’s Harbour, Newfoundland, of which four were drilled into targets on the MINKAP option property. These four holes were targeted to duplicate intersections by historic holes into three zones of mineralization. All intersected visible zinc mineralization in the approximate depth intervals identified by the historic drilling. Samples are being cut and sent for analysis.
All of the drill holes were vertical holes and intersected approximately true thicknesses of the near flat sedimentary host rock horizons. The first hole – UM29 – was drilled as a twin to historic hole T1386 which was reported to have intersected 18.8 feet averaging 8.96% Zinc from a depth of 551 feet. The second hole was drilled close to historic hole T1311 in what is called the Nose Zone. That hole intersected 6.79% Zinc over 21.5 feet from a depth of 462.1 feet. The third hole was drilled more than 400 feet east along the Nose Zone and twinned historic hole T1135 which intersected 5.91% Zinc over 16.2 feet from a depth of 440.4 feet. The fourth hole was drilled into the N Zone to replicate historic hole C513 which intersected 6.78% Zinc over 13.6 feet from a depth of 461.0 feet.
Zinc mineralized intervals identified in the core logging will be sampled by half core sawing, with one half of the core shipped to Atlantic Analytical Laboratories of Springdale, Newfoundland for assaying. Atlantic Analytical is an ISO 17025 registered laboratory. Appropriate standards and blanks will be inserted into the samples sequence for quality control in accordance with Ubique’s standard QA/QC protocol which was developed for the drill program in 2018 (see press release dated November 30th, 2018).
Ubique’s Daniels Harbour Zinc Project – 2019 Diamond Drilling Program.
Ubique owns 109 claims located in the Daniel’s Harbour area in Newfoundland, Canada, covering 27 sq. kms, in two blocks and has another 42 claims covering 10 sq. kms. under option from MinKap Resources Inc. The Ubique claims cover three zones of zinc mineralization, namely P Zone, Cobo’s Pond and Tilt Pond. The P Zone is where Ubique completed most of its 2017 and 2018 drilling programs, the highlight of which was a true width intersection of 13.6% Zinc over 12.2 metres including 17.43% Zinc over 8.6m. More than 20 historic and recent drill holes in this target area have intersections with greater than 4% zinc over at least 2 metres true widths and demonstrate the zone extends for at least 150 metres. The KAP Option claims cover areas of the historic mining activity and research identified five high priority drill target areas where historic drilling intersected mineralization, including a true width interval of 5.73m (18.8 feet) of 8.96% zinc in the 1386 zone. The former drilling at each of these sites is considered as historic and not acceptable under the criteria defined by National Instrument 43-101 without demonstrated duplication and validation.
Ubique then moved the drill to its own claims to follow up on the 2017 and 2018 diamond drilling results which discovered the PE zone of high grade zinc mineralization with the objective of extending the length of the zinc mineralized zone in anticipation of estimating a resource.
The zinc mineralization intersected is a very pale coloured sphalerite, characteristic of a low-iron, Mississippi-Valley-Type carbonate rock geological environment analogous to many large deposits in north America. Seven million tonnes, averaging 7.8% zinc, were mined from the former Daniel’s Harbour mine and processed on site to yield a very high grade concentrate for shipping from a nearby deep water port facilities to a custom zinc smelter.

Ubique Minerals Limited is a zinc exploration company listed on the CSE (CSE:UBQ). It has focused on exploration of its 100% owned Daniel’s Harbour zinc property in Newfoundland, and was initially funded for two years by private equity including that from Greenbank Capital Inc (CSE:GBC and OTCMKTS:GRNBF and FRA:2TL). Ubique became a publicly listed company in September 2018. Ubique undertook one drilling program on its Daniel’s Harbour zinc project in 2017 and two more drilling campaigns in 2018 which were successful in delineating zinc mineralization extending from the vicinity of former mine workings. Ubique has an experienced management group with a record of multiple discoveries of deposits worldwide, and has an extensive database of historic exploration results from the Daniel’s Harbour area.
