CARLYLE COMMODITIES CORP. (CSE:CCC, FSE:BJ4, OTC:DLRYF) (“Carlyle” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that is has commenced Phase 1 diamond drilling at its 100% owned Newton Gold Silver Project near Williams Lake, British Columbia.
The Company’s Phase 1 diamond drill program is intended to test numerous high priority targets with aims of increasing both tonnage and ounces at the Company’s current National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) resource calculation. The initial focus will test several zones of felsic volcanic host rock that are outside of the current pit-constrained resource calculation with the intention of discovering new zones of mineralization.
Phase 1 initial drill targets:
- Drill site 1: Targets continuity of the well mineralized main felsic domain, which remains open. This will be completed by a 500 meter to 1,000 meter drill hole through the current resource and extending to untested sections of the felsic domain.
- Drill site 2: Targets a potential felsic domain starting at surface and extending into a second felsic domain which remains open along trend. Geological modelling suggests that these may represent three stacked mineralized felsic domains.
- Drill site 3: Targets an additional felsic domain more than 100 metres outside of the current resource. Historical DDH 12-076 returned 171m of 0.69 Au and 2.1 Ag (288-459m) which has not been followed up on.
 A copy of the Company’s NI 43-101 compliant “Technical Report on the Updated Mineral Resources Estimate for the Newton Project, British Columbia, Canada” dated June 13, 2022 authored by Michael F. O’Brien, P.Geo., and Douglas Turnbull, P.Geo., which contains the updated Newton Project resource calculation, is available under Carlyle’s profile on SEDAR.

Mr. Jeremy Hanson, VP Exploration stated: “We are very excited to begin this first phase of drilling. We have a number of high priority domains to test. Our modeling is indicating that these mineralized felsic domains extend significantly outside of the current resource and with potential for discoveries of new zones of mineralization.”
Carlyle President and Chief Executive Officer, Morgan Good, commented: “We believe momentum is building across the junior resource equity markets. Carlyle’s timing with its Phase 1 diamond drill program to test high potential targets looks to position the Company well leading into what we all hope to be many bullish years ahead for precious metals.”
