Edmonton, Alberta – March 28, 2022 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Cortus Metals Inc. (TSXV: CRTS) (OTCQB: CRTTF) (the “Company”, or “Cortus”) is pleased to provide an update on its project portfolio featuring 17 highly prospective and road accessible gold exploration targets located in the prolific north-central region of Nevada, USA, a perennially top-ranked mining jurisdiction whose economy and infrastructure are driven by mining (see Figure 1). These targets are under shallow alluvial cover where mountain ranges transition to valley floors (the “pediment”). They are available for joint ventures to drill with the goal of making multiple significant new discoveries near existing mines and known deposits, ultimately delivering assets to producers who are expected to be making acquisitions within 2 to 5 years to replace depleted reserves.
Cortus CEO Sean Mager commented, “The Cortus strategy is based on joint ventures funding multiple drill programs to make significant new discoveries and then developing them to the point of becoming marketable production assets. The scale of our targeting model could generate Tier 1 gold assets. Of course, in Nevada, favourable economics enable relatively small and low-grade deposits to become marketable assets as well. Our goal is to have at least half of our projects under Option with drill programs commencing in the immediate to near term.”

Nevada has produced more than 200 million ounces of gold over the past 200 years*, almost entirely from the well-exposed and well-explored rocks of mountain ranges. Similar production potential is untapped between the mountain ranges in the virtually unexplored basins of Nevada, where Cortus is focused. Its portfolio of projects ranges from grassroots with a detailed exploration field program plan in place, to drill-ready with permits and bonds in progress.
The Company selects projects based on expert analysis and interpretation of tectonic settings, structural controls and hydrothermal activity within the Great Basin. Cortus has diligently evaluated projects, secured mineral tenure, compiled and organized data, and conducted extensive field work programs including (1) extensive soil geochemical surveying using the latest analytical methods designed specifically for detecting anomalies through cover, (2) gravimetric surveys to define structure and estimate depths to bedrock for drill targeting, (3) detailed ground magnetic surveys to evaluate structural and lithological controls on mineralization, and (4) bedrock, structural, and alteration mapping to define epithermal and Carlin-type gold targets (See Figure 2).
Figure 2: Stages of systematic exploration methodology
Accordingly, the projects have been grouped into 3 stages of exploration as described in detail below:
Stage one of exploration involves analyzing the structural setting, regional gravity and magnetic data, and research of all projects and producing mines nearby. Preliminary mapping and applying the proprietary methodology are used to assess the property potential, land packages are then staked, and a detailed exploration plan is developed for each project. Cortus currently holds eight projects at stage one of exploration:
Stage two of exploration involves the collection and analysis of rock and soil geochemistry, detailed geological mapping, and geophysics, including detailed ground magnetic surveys and, where necessary, gravity surveys to define drill targets. Cortus currently holds six projects at stage two of exploration:
Stage three of exploration consists of drill-ready projects prepared to test well-defined targets. Cortus currently holds 3 projects at stage three of exploration:
