Red Metal Identifies New Targets Through Mapping on the Carrizal IOCG Property
VANCOUVER, BC, August 16, 2022 – Red Metal Resources Ltd. (the “Company” or “Red Metal”) (CSE:RMES, OTCPINK:RMESF) is pleased to announce results from the 2022 geological mapping program on its Carrizal property, Region III, Chile.
The 2022 mapping and prospecting program focused on detailed mapping of veins along strike of, and to the east of the main Farellon structure with the goal of developing new drill targets. New veins mapped and sampled include the Gorda vein which was drilled in Hole FAR-22-020. The Gorda vein lies 250 metres east of the Farellon structure which was mapped and sampled along strike for a full kilometre. A further five veins were mapped and sampled in detail to develop future drill targets throughout the property.
- A high sample return of 5.77% Cu, 1.55% Co and 0.11 g/t Au two kilometres along strike to the north of the recent drilling on the Farellon structure
- Three veins mapped in detail, each demonstrating over a kilometre of prospective strike length with mineralized grab samples

- Management cautions that prospecting surface rock samples and associated assays, as discussed herein, are selective by nature and represent a point location, and therefore may not necessarily be fully representative of the mineralized horizon sampled.
- This table represents a selection of highlights including 41 samples out of 102 samples taken

Caitlin Jeffs, President, CEO comments: “We are excited to see so many new potential drill targets at close proximity to the Farellon structureJDC1 .”
Samples are prepared and analyzed by ALS laboratories in La Serena, Chile and Lima, Peru. Samples are analyzed for gold using Fire Assay-AA techniques. All samples are analyzed using a 33 element 4 acid digestion ICP analysis method and copper samples over 10,000 ppm are analyzed again for just copper using the same analysis method.
