Signature Resources Further Increases Its Lingman Lake Project Land Package In The Prolific Red Lake Geologic District
Toronto, Ontario, March 22, 2021. Signature Resources Ltd. (TSXV: SGU, OTCQB: SGGTF, FSE 3S3) ("Signature" or the "Company") is pleased to announce an additional increase in its land position at its Lingman Lake Project within in the prolific Red Lake geologic district in Northwestern Ontario.
The Company has added 323 claims to the previously held 1,066 claims (excluding the 18 held patented claims), to now hold 1,389 claims. When added to the 4 full patented claims and 14 mineral rights patented claims held, Signature now holds a total of 1,407 claims (26,393 hectares).
The updated claim package covers a vast land holding defined by over 32 km E-W strike distance and 264 square kilometers of highly prospective gold potential. The Signature team is excited with its plans to commence a significant regional exploration program commencing in the Spring of 2021. The program will be focused on following-up on previously completed regional exploration work identifying and unlocking multiple high-potential regional drill targets throughout its massive land package.
“With the addition of these 323 claims, Signature’s Lingman Lake property now encompasses 85% of the entire Lingman Lake Greenstone Belt and 90% of the all-important Northern margin, significantly enhancing the huge district scale potential of Signature’s Lingman Lake land package. We look forward to starting regional and targeted exploration programs to assess this potential in the Spring”.Walter Hanych – Chief Geologist
The Company commenced its 2,500 meter 2021 winter drill program March 17th which is focused on expanding the known zone of historical mineralization towards the west and to depth.

*This historical resource estimate is based on prior data and reports obtained and prepared by previous operators, and information provided by governmental authorities. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to verify the classification of the mineral resource estimates in accordance with current CIM categories. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate. Establishing a current mineral resource estimate on the Lingman Lake deposit will require further evaluation, which the Company and its consultants intend to complete in due course.
