the 2022 samples built on the company’s 2021 program, where precious and base metal mineralization was defined beyond the limits of the known mineralization.

Mineralization was found exposed in old pits and trenches and in outcrop along the margins of ice and snow on the southeast spine and upper slopes of Mount McGuire. This mineralization is about 1.7 kilometres southwest of known mineralization and up to 540 metres higher in elevation.

Starcore shared it is planning additional fieldwork for 2023 to further explore the potential of higher-level porphyry, transitional and vein mineralization. This would include locating and sampling the 1926 underground workings at the Le Roy mineral occurrence on the Ajax Property.

Other styles of mineralization occur within the area, such as at Dolly Varden, 12 kilometres northwest, Big Bulk, seven kilometres northeast and Surebet, 17 kilometres west.

Starcore International Mines Ltd. (SAM) is unchanged trading at $0.20 per sjare as of 2:13 p.m. EST.
