In press releases issued on February 13 and 26, 2019, Galway Metals Inc. reported assay results for the Richard Zone, a new gold discovery located between the George Murphy and Jubilee zones, at their Clarence Stream gold property in southwestern New Brunswick. Four holes were drilled: BL18-12 (discovery hole), BL19-13 (100 m west of the discovery hole), BL19-14 (100 m east of the discovery hole), and BL19-15. Assay results from BL18-12 include 7.3 g/t Au over 36.7 m (including 38.1 g/t Au over 7.5 m). BL19-15 encountered two intersections of quartz veining and visible gold, approximately 50 m NW and 97 m vertically below the visible gold in BL18-12. Partial assay results from BL19-15 yielded 5.4 g/t Au over 11.0 m (including 20.9 g/t Au over 2.55 m).  Partial assay results from BL19-13 include 2.5 g/t Au over 6.85 m and 13.4 g/t Au over 1.4 m, and 2.1% Zn over 1.1 m. Assay results for BL19-14 are pending. Additionally, a grab sample taken from a large angular boulder (located within a soil anomaly and approximately 250 m SE of the Jubilee Zone and 850 m SW of the Richard Zone) assayed 56.2 g/t Au.

In a February 20, 2019 press release, Osisko Metals Inc. announced that a Mineral Resource Estimate for their Key Anacon and Gilmour South deposits had been completed. Total Indicated Resources (using a 5.5% ZnEq cut-off) consist of 1.96 million tonnes grading 5.77% Zn, 2.38% Pb, 0.22% Cu and 68.90 g/t Ag in the Key Anacon Main and Titan zones. Total Inferred Resources (using a 5.5% ZnEq cut-off) consist of 3.85 million tonnes grading 5.34% Zn, 1.49% Pb, 0.32% Cu and 47.70 g/t Ag in the Key Anacon Main and Titan zones and Gilmour South. The Main and Titan zones at Key Anacon remain open along strike and at depth.

In a February 19, 2019 press release, Wolfden Resources Corp. reported assay results from their Orvan Brook property near Bathurst in northern New Brunswick. Four holes were drilled at the West Lens and six holes were drilled at the East Lens for a total of 2,649 m. Highlights from the West Lens drilling include: 7.18% Zn, 2.78% Pb, 0.10% Cu, 68.40 g/t Ag, and 0.76 g/t Au over 4.40 m (OB-18-30); and 7.18% Zn, 3.19% Pb, 0.11% Cu, 76.30 g/t Ag, and 0.55 g/t Au over 3.25 m (OB-18-27).

In a February 28, 2019 press release, X-Terra Resources Inc. reported on till sample results at their Northwest Property in northern New Brunswick. The objective of the till sampling was to investigate a link between the Rim, Dome, and Bonanza gold-bearing quartz veins. Gold grain results ranged between 0 and 158 and the morphology of the grains suggests that they originate from a local source.

In a January 18, 2019 press release, Great Atlantic Resources Corp. announced results from the 2018 drilling program at their Keymet base metal – precious metal property near Bathurst, New Brunswick. The program consisted of 13 drill holes totalling 1484 m. Eleven of the drill holes targeted the Elmtree 12 vein system along strike and at depth. This vein system has now been traced for ~110 m along strike to a depth of ~145 m and remains open along strike and at depth. Assay highlights include:  Ky-18-14 assaying 7.89% zinc equivalent over 34.3 m; and Ky-18-10 assaying 10.91% zinc equivalent over 3.27 m.

In a January 23, 2019 press release, Galway Metals Inc. reported on their Clarence Stream gold project in southwestern New Brunswick. A new gold zone was discovered with drill hole BL18-12 where visible gold was observed in quartz veins at 51 m downhole over a 7 m interval (assays are pending). The new zone is located between (and along strike of) the George Murphy and Jubilee zones. Additionally, drill results from the George Murphy Zone were released from two drill holes and two drill hole extensions, which include:  3.2 g/t Au over 17.3 m (GWM-18CL-30); 2.0 g/t Au over 23.3 m (GWM-18CL-21; extension); 1.6 g/t Au over 7.2 m and 1650 g/t Ag over 1.0 m (GWM-18CL-05; extension). The latter intersection is the first indication of very high-grade silver mineralization within the George Murphy Zone. Visible gold has been identified in three out of four additional drill holes for which assays are still pending.
