Affinity Metals (AFF) is releasing assay results from late fall 2020 drilling at its Regal Project.

Initial examination of the results discovered significant cross-contamination appears to have occurred in the assaying process.

Affinity employed a system of QA/QC which included inserting blanks, standards and duplicates periodically mixed with drill core samples in order to detect any potential assaying errors.

In this case, some quality control blanks and standards show erroneous significantly elevated levels of silver, lead, zinc and other elements, which is indicating cross-contamination and a problem somewhere in the assaying procedure.

The assay laboratory has been contacted and will be remedying the situation by re-running assays. Those results will be released at a later date.

The Regal property encompasses 8,800 hectares of the northern end of the Kootenay Arc located approximately 25 kilometres northeast of Revelstoke, British Columbia.

The late fall 2020 exploration program consisted of geological mapping and associated geochemical sampling, as well as diamond drilling of 19 holes totaling 3,442.5 metres.

Affinity is focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of strategic metal deposits within North America. Affinity is following a hybrid approach of combining the advancement of strategic assets along with following a project generator model.

Affinity Metals is down 6.45 per cent on the day, with shares trading at C$0.14 at 9:30 am ET.
