Aldever Resources Inc. (ALD—TSXV) (ALDVF—OTCQB) (“Aldever” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced an IP (induced Polarization) ground survey at its Urban Barry Gold Project in the heart of the Urban Barry Mining Camp, central Quebec.
The survey is to consist of a total of up to 25km of survey lines on the UB Deformation Zone, where anomalous mineral values (up to 0.127g/ ton gold) were obtained in the 2016 programs. The UB Deformation Zone is located at the confluence of the two regional breaks in the Abitibi Greenstone rock, the primary controls of mineralization at Osisko Mining’s Lac Windfall Deposit and Bonterra Resources’ Gladiator Deposit. The purpose of the IP survey is to rarefy drilling targets for the Phase 2 program, which calls for up to 6000 meters of diamond drilling, comprised of (20) twenty, (300m) three hundred meter holes.
Aldever controls 1,297ha in the Urban Barry Mining district, Quebec, approximately 18 kilometers east of, and within the same geological district as, Oban Mining’s Windfall Lake Deposit, which has an estimated mineral resource*of 748,000 ounces of gold at 8.42 g/t gold in the indicated category, and 860,000 ounces of gold at 7.62 g/t gold in the inferred category.

These estimates of gold resources are sourced from publicly available materials and are not located on the Urban Barry Property. Aldever has not undertaken any independent investigation of the production/resource estimates, nor has it independently analyzed the publicly available results.
The Company’s Urban Barry Property (UB) is situated within the Urban-Barry Greenstone Belt and lies within the eastern portion of the Abitibi Subprovince which has an east-west extent of approximately 135 kilometers and ranges from 4 to 20 kilometers in width along its strike extent. Lithological units within this terrane include sequences of basalt flows with intercalated felsic rhyolities to more mafic volcaniclastic rocks that have been deformed and metamorphosed to the greenschist facies. The volcaniclastic sequence has been intruded by syn-volcanic to late (post mineralization) intrusions. Dominant structural fabrics trend to the northeast, with variable dips between 30 to 85° to the southeast. The principal exploration target at the UB Project is a seven-kilometer strike length of regional scale faulting of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt which lies within the UB Property bounds.
