Vancouver, British Columbia, November 23, 2020 – Canadian Palladium Resources Inc.  (the “Company”) (CSE: BULL) (OTCQB: DCNNF) (FSE: DCR1) is pleased to provide additional analytical results for diamond drill holes EB-20-32, 33 and EB-20-35 to EB-20-38 on the East Bull Palladium Property, 90 kilometres west of Sudbury, Ontario.

  • The new results include a 12.0 m section of 2.97 g/t Palladium Equivalent (Pd-Eq) (hole EB-20-37)
  • The same hole includes a 5.0 m section of 5.59 g/t Pd-Eq
  • This interval also includes 1.0 m of 9.57 g/t Pd-Eq, one of the highest grade results intersected to date at the East Bull Project

Wayne Tisdale, Canadian Palladium’s CEO, commented, “The new results confirm our interpretations that there are multiple high-grade sections within the Valhalla Zone.  The new high-grade mineralization is open to the west and we will be providing additional drill results on this target shortly.  Our program continues to expand this near-surface palladium mineralization and the whole project benefits from our proximity to the Sudbury mining camp.” 

Drill hole intercepts for holes EB-20-32, 33 and EB-20-35 to EB-20-38 are reported in the following table.  Drill hole locations are provided at the end of the releaseTo date all of the intercepts are shallow and within 150 m vertical depth from surface

  1. Individual demarked samples were sawn in half, bagged, sealed and transported by courier to the laboratory.  Duplicates, blanks and standards were introduced to the sample stream on site.  Holes EB-20-32 to 34 were sent to Activation Laboratories (ISO/IEC 17025 Certified) in Ancaster Ontario.  Each sample was analysed using the Activation Laboratories codes RX1, 1C-OES 50 g (Au, Pt, Pd); 1F2 Total Digestion ICP.  Holes EB-20-35 to EB20-38 were sent to AGAT Laboratories, Mississauga, Ontario.  Each sample was analysed using the AGAT Laboratories codes 202555, Fire Assay-ICP (50g); 201070, 4 Acid Digest / ICP-OES Finish.
  2. Reported widths are drilled widths, with true widths estimated to be 90 per cent of drilled widths for minus-60-degree-holes to approximately 85 per cent of drilled width for minus-70-degree holes.
  3. Pd-Eq grade based on parameters in the May 23, 2019, NI 43-101 Resource Estimate and Technical Report.  Metal prices are based on 24-month trailing averages at January 31, 2018.  In US$ these prices are: Pd – S767/oz; Pt – $973/oz; Rh – $1,000/oz; Au – $1.262/oz; Cu – $2.53/lb; Ni – $4.62/lb; Co – $20/lb.

The Company’s 10,000 m drill program continues to extend the Valhalla Zone resource down dip and towards the west.  The drilling in this section of the Valhalla Zone has produced consistent results for over a kilometre strike length to vertical depths of 150 metres.  The mineralization widths within this area varies from 6 to 71 metres core width (true widths estimated to be 90 per cent of drilled widths for minus-60-degree-holes to approximately 85 per cent of drilled width for minus-70-degree holes).

The Company’s exploration team is focused on the interpretation of the connection of the Valhalla Zone and the Garden Zone.  The Palladium mineralization is hosted within 45o north dipping vari-textured gabbro unit near the basal contact of the East Bull Gabbro.  Drilling has successfully focused on testing the downdip extension of this “contact-type” mineralization. Such mineralization structures are typically tens of metres thick.
