Canada NewsWire

VANCOUVER, BC,Feb. 9, 2021/CNW/ – Sable Resources Ltd. (“Sable” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SAE) (OTCQB: SBLRF) is pleased to announce that it has started its drilling campaign at El Fierro Project in San Juan,Argentina.  El Fierro is a historical artisanal silver-rich polymetallic vein mining district located 250 km northwest of San Juan city and 120 km from Sable’s Don Julio Project. Sable will be the first company to drill the project.”We are very excited to be the first company to drill such a high-quality asset as El Fierro, and to start our program on time and within budget.  We are looking forward to seeing the core come out of the ground and to start confirming the three-dimensional footprint of high grade zones,” statedRuben Padilla, President and CEO, who added, “Mapping, prospecting, and geophysics continues to advance at the property and we will provide updates on results when available over the coming weeks.”The El Fierro drill program will consist of a first phase of3,000m, in 21 planned drill holes across three target areas –Fierro Bajo, Fierro Alto and La Verde.  Sable plans to expand the program a further2,000mfor a total of5,000mbased on results from the first phase and following the incorporation of pending surface samples geochemical analysis from soils, outcrops, and new trenching. The drill program will test grade continuity and vein thickness at depth and along strike extensions of the high grade vein targets at the three known mineralized zones of the project which combined represent over 5.5 km of outcropping and sub-cropping veins within an area of 8 x 4 km.The first area to be tested will beFierro Bajowith 10 shallow holes (1,400m) targeting four mineralized structures between 50 to100mdowndip (see Figure 1).Fierro Bajoconsists of at least four silver-rich veins that returned values of up to 17,531 g/t AgEq (12,181 g/t Ag; 5.67% Pb; 1.6% Cu; and 0.2%Zn Grab Sample).At Fierro Alto, six drill holes (totalling900m) are planned to test the main structures (F and G veins) over a strike length of600mat depths between 50 and100mdowndip (see Figure 2).  Structures at Fierro Alto returned values as high as 1,946.50 g/t AgEq (1,070 g/t Ag; 20% Pb; 0.38 g/t Au; 1.003% Zn; and 1.33% Cu.0.25mChannel Sample).Finally, at La Verde the Company will drill seven short holes (totalling700m) testing the mineralization to50mdepth on the three veins that are currently known (see Figure 3).  La Verde samples have returned some of the highest grades within the project, with values up to 2.582 g/t AgEq (784g/t Ag; 16.7 g/t Au; 3.42% Pb; 0.3% Zn; and 0.3% Cu. Grab Sample).The Company notes that selected grab samples noted above are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted at El Fierro.  Channel samples are always taken perpendicular to structures and therefore represent true width. Maps associated with this press release will be available on Sable’s website (  Silver equivalent (AgEq) is calculated based on 100% recovery and prices of USD 17.89 per oz for silver; USD 1,500 per oz for gold; USD 0.86 per pound for lead; USD 1.08 per pound for zinc; and USD 2.80 per pound for copper.

Sable’s main focus is developing its large portfolio of new greenfields projects to resource level. Sable is actively exploring the San Juan Regional Program (109,055 ha) incorporating the Don Julio, El Fierro, and los Pumas Projects in San Juan Province,Argentina; and the Mexico Regional Program (1.16Mha in application, 39,000ha titled) incorporating the Vinata and El Escarpe projects.Related link:sableresources.comNeither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider, as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.SAMPLE PREPARATION AND QA/QCSample preparation for projects inArgentinais carried out by ALS Chemex Argentina, a subsidiary of ALS Minerals, at its facility located in Mendoza,Argentina. Analyses are carried out at their laboratory inLima, Peru. Sample preparation includes drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60°C, fine crushing of the sample to at least 70% passing less than 2 mm, sample splitting using a riffle splitter, and pulverizing a 250 g split to at least 85% passing 75 microns (code PREP-31).Gold was analyzed by fire assay of a 30 g sample split with detection by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES); multi-elements were analyzed by an aqua regia digestion of a 1 gram sub-sample with detection by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES) for 35 elements (Ag, Al, As, B, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Ga, Hg, K, La, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, P, Pb, S, Sb, Sc, Sr, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Zn) (codes Au-ICP21 and ME-ICP41). This digestion method dissolves most minerals but not all elements are quantitatively extracted in some sample matrices. Over limit Ag, Cu, Pb, Zn OG46 analyses are conducted when samples exceed the upper detection limits; this method includes Aqua Regia digestion and ICP-AES finish. Method Ag-GRA21 which includes Fire Assay with gravimetric finish is applied when Ag exceeds 1500 g/t. Control samples (standards, blanks, and duplicates) are inserted systematically and their results evaluated according to the Company protocols.QUALIFIED PERSONLuis Arteaga M.Sc.P.Geo., Vice President Exploration is the Company’s Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.
