North Arrow Starts till Sampling and Ground Geophysical Surveys at Pikoo Diamond Project, Saskatchewan

October 13, 2022

North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSXV-NAR) (“North Arrow”) is pleased to report that crews have been mobilized to start an exploration till sampling and ground geophysical survey program at its 100% owned Pikoo Diamond Project, located approximately 140 km east of La Ronge, Saskatchewan.

Till sampling is intended to better define several unsourced kimberlite indicator mineral trains and to test previously unsampled areas down-ice of priority potential kimberlite targets generated from a recent review of project datasets. North Arrow’s kimberlite discoveries at Pikoo, including the highly diamondiferous PK150 kimberlite, have shown that till sampling is an effective exploration tool in this area and positive kimberlite indicator mineral results from this program would immediately position these new targets as a priority for drill testing in 2023. Ground magnetic surveys will also be completed over land-based targets, along with preparatory line cutting in advance of an exploration drill program next year.

The Pikoo Diamond Project consists of 39,752 hectares of mineral claims located approximately 140 km east of La Ronge, Saskatchewan. An all-season road and power line to the community of Deschambault Lake comes to within 6 km of the project’s southern boundary. North Arrow has discovered 10 kimberlite occurrences within the project area and microdiamond testing of five of the kimberlites has confirmed they are diamondiferous. All kimberlites have been discovered at or near the up-ice termination of well-defined kimberlite indicator mineral trains. Detailed petrography of the kimberlites in conjunction with diamond results, mineral abundances and detailed till sampling information  indicate that additional, as yet undiscovered kimberlites are located within the project area. Details on diamond recoveries and past exploration efforts can be found at North Arrow’s website here.

North Arrow’s exploration programs are conducted under the direction of Kenneth Armstrong, P.Geo., President and CEO of North Arrow and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101.  Mr. Armstrong has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this press release.
