Delrey Metals Corp. (CSE:DLRY, FSE:1OZ, OTC:DLRYF) (“Delrey” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has mobilized a team of exploration geologists and samplers to its wholly owned Star, Porcher and Blackie properties located near Prince Rupert, British Columbia. The crew will be ground-truthing several kilometer-scale, high amplitude (up to 7,200 gamma) magnetic anomalies highlighted by the recently completed high-resolution geophysical surveys on its projects (see news release dated April 15, 2019).
The magnetic anomalies are interpreted to be caused by accumulations of magnetite in the host gabbros, which may potentially host concentrations of iron, titanium and vanadium mineralization (Fe-Ti-V). The magnetic highs are coincident with anomalous vanadium up to 158 ppm in stream sediment samples collected by the BC Geological Survey (BCGS). The majority of the anomalies are favorably located near tidewater or along active logging roads, allowing for good access for sampling crews. Bedrock exposures in these anomalous areas will be extensively sampled on all three properties and assay results will be released upon receipt.
Morgan Good, Delrey’s President and Chief Executive Officer commented,
“We are very excited for our projects to have boots on the ground so early in the exploration season. A low snowpack and milder conditions along BC’s northern coast allowed us to begin exploring our BC assets in a relatively short time frame after acquiring them. Delrey’s guiding objective is to move rapidly on evaluating our projects and this is a great first step. We are working on a swift turnaround of assay results which could potentially generate several high priority drill targets for our 2019 season on these projects.”
Blackie is a 1,213 hectare property, 100% owned by Delrey and located 96km south-southwest of Prince Rupert, British Columbia along tide-water. The property is centered on a large gabbroic body with estimated dimensions of 1.2km x 0.4km x 0.5km hosting iron-titanium-vanadium mineralization within massive titaniferous magnetite with historic bedrock samples assaying as high as 2.14% V2O5.1
Porcher is a 3,525-hectare property, 100% owned by Delrey and located 38km south-southwest of Prince Rupert, British Columbia along tide-water. The property is centered on two north-south trending gabbroic dikes (5.2km x 1km and 4km x 0.6km) hosting iron-titanium-vanadium mineralization within titaniferous magnetite with historic concentrate grades assaying as high as 0.84% V2O5.1
Star is a 4,618-hectare property, 100% owned by Delrey and located 27km south-southwest of Prince Rupert, British Columbia along tide-water. The property encompasses several strong magnetic anomalies which are drained by highly anomalous vanadium in streams, up to 158ppm (99th percentile), sampled in 2000 as part of the British Columbia Geological Survey’s Regional Geochemical Survey (RGS) program.1
Delrey Metals Corp. (CSE:DLRY, FSE:1OZ, OTC:DLRYF) is a mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral resource properties, specifically in the strategic energy metals space. The Company recently announced an LOI to acquire an 80% interest in the Four Corners Project in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Four Corners Project hosts iron-titanium-vanadium mineralization and subject to considerable historic exploration, drilling and metallurgical work showing positive results. The project is easily accessible with highway access and power lines intersecting the property. It is 35km away from the commercial town of Stephenville and a deep-water port providing everything necessary for its exploration and development. The Company has also recently purchased the Star, Porcher, Peneece and Blackie iron-titanium-vanadium properties located along tide-water in Northwest British Columbia. Delrey will continue to review and acquire projects showing potential for materials used in the energy storage and electric vehicle markets. The Company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is listed on the CSE under the symbol “DLRY”.

1Please note all work mentioned above is historic in nature and cannot be relied upon as Delrey’s QP, as defined under NI 43-101 has not prepared nor verified the historical information at this time. Any reference to historical results are believed to be based on reasonable assumptions, and neither the company nor its qualified person has any reason to contest the relevance and reliability of the historical samples. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to replicate any mention of historic rock grab samples using current lab methods. Although the historical rock grab samples are believed to be based on reasonable sampling and assay methodologies, they were calculated prior to the implementation of National Instrument 43-101. Any historical assays do not meet current standards as defined under sections 3.2a-c of NI 43-101; consequently, the Company is not treating the historical rock grabs with full confidence at this time.
