CARLYLE COMMODITIES CORP. (CSE:CCC, FSE:1OZ, OTC:DLRYF) (“Carlyle” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has received results from the latest geophysical survey that included 3.8 line-km of Induced Polarization (IP) in five lines across the Cerro Magallanes rhyolitic dome part of the Cecilia Project in Sonora, Mexico (the “Project”), where the Company has an option to earn a 100% interest from its partner Riverside Resources Inc. (“Riverside”).
Ahead of drilling, Carlyle has further refined and detailed drill targets with the geophysical IP survey using 50-m dipole spacing. The close spacing between dipoles helps to delineate structures and reduces the data variation at shallow depth (noise), allowing for better targeting for Carlyle’s upcoming maiden drill program (the “Program”) at the Cecilia Project. The anticipated Program will seek to test various gold-bearing fault/vein structures up to 250 m depth.
Mapping of the rhyolitic dome has highlighted zones of high silicification nearby to breccia and gold-bearing structural zones. The IP data and new IP pseudo-sections define resistive anomalies (which are potentially silica zones), along the identified structures at surface for 200 m along strike and remains open. The IP anomalies coincide with past sampling in the area of historical drilling where Cambior Inc. (1995) in drillhole 138-95-08 reported drilling 30.0 m at 1.41 g/t gold  (see Figure 1 below).

Carlyle’s Chief Executive Officer, Morgan Good, commented, “The Carlyle team is yet again pleased with more positive results from our exploration work ahead of the maiden drill program at our Cecilia Project in Sonora, Mexico. These geophysical findings add further excitement around the building confidence we are continuing to gather, particularly with their coincidental alignment of the favourable historical results, as we progress towards our maiden drill campaign.”
Riverside’s President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, stated, “We are pleased to work with our partner Carlyle Commodities Corp. to be exploring the Cecilia Mineral District and this current technical work improves the visualization of the targets. The Cecilia Project program is going in the right direction, the site is being prepared for drilling, with completed roads and many of the drill pads already in place.”
Carlyle and Riverside are working closely together to progress to the drilling phase of the Program at the Cecilia Project which will include an aggregate of 1,500 m of initial drilling to test high-grade targets: San Jose, North Breccia and Central Targets. The San Jose Target previously returned 43.2 g/t Au (out of 21 samples; as disclosed in Carlyle’s press release dated September 21, 2020). Additional results in the upcoming weeks are expected to include:
- A drone aeromagnetic survey, which will help with vectoring in on magnetic anomalies at depth; and
- Results from the next batch of channel samples covering the east-west extension between the San Jose and Central Targets.

This news release contains forward-looking statements and forward-looking information (collectively, “forward-looking statements”) within the meaning of applicable Canadian legislation. All statements in this news release that are not purely historical are forward-looking statements and include statements regarding beliefs, plans, expectations and orientations regarding the future including, without limitation, the exercise of the Company’s option on Cecilia Project, the expected results of the Program, and any plans for further exploration of the Cecilia Project. Although the Company believes that such statements are reasonable and reflect expectations of future developments and other factors which management believes to be reasonable and relevant, the Company can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as: “believes”, “expects”, “anticipates”, “intends”, “estimates”, “plans”, “may”, “should”, “would”, “will”, “potential”, “scheduled” or variations of such words and phrases and similar expressions, which, by their nature, refer to future events or results that may, could, would, might or will occur or be taken or achieved. In making the forward-looking statements in this news release, the Company has applied several material assumptions, including without limitation, that the Company will exercise its option on the Mack Project and form the joint venture with UMS (or its assigns), that the results of the work to be conducted on the Cecilia Project will be satisfactory to warrant further exploration, that market fundamentals will support the viability of gold and other precious mineral exploration of the Cecilia Project, the availability of the financing required for the Company to carry out its planned future activities, and the Company’s ability to retain and attract qualified personnel.
Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking information.
