- Favorable geophysical results correlate with known surface gold showings.
- Doyle Property covers an area of over 2,365 hectares and is in a geological providential area.
- Historic drillhole results intersected 49.58 g/t gold over one meter and drill hole intersected 17.49 g/t gold over one meter.
Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – August 25, 2021) – Advance United Holdings Inc. (CSE: AUHI) (FSE: 9I0) (the “Company” or “Advance United”) is pleased to report on the results of the airborne geophysical surveys completed on its Doyle Property located in the Batchewana area of Ontario.
The airborne geophysical survey, comprising VLE-EM and Magnetics, was completed on the Doyle Property by Terraquest Airborne Geophysics Ltd of Toronto, Ontario. The resulting data was interpreted and reported by independent senior geophysical consultant Mr. Jeremy Brett, P. Geo, a summary of which is presented below with a full report to be published on the Company’s website, www.advanceunited.com, in the coming weeks.
The data collected by Terraquest was found to be of excellent quality and Mr. Brett was able to complete detailed interpretation of the resulting data. To facilitate the interpretation, government aeromagnetic data was also obtained, as was detailed elevation data from the SRTM Digital Elevation Model.
The interpretation report identified structural and geologic controls on gold mineralization on the Doyle Property, which can be utilized to focus and direct further exploration of the property.
The results of the interpretation indicates that there are at least two directions of structures on the Doyle Property which trend NNW-SSE and NW-SE with a dihedral angle of approximately 20 to 40 degrees between them. These can be identified on the regional scale (Figure 1) and on the property scale (Figure 2).
The shallow angle of intersection of the two main structural trends had been cited in the past as a favorable area for gold mineralization and concentration, and the curvilinear nature of the structures suggest they wrap around the Grey Owl Lake Pluton.
Interpretation of the VLF-EM data shows a resistivity high which is associated with the main gold occurrences found on surface which may be related to possible alteration by silica (quartz). In addition, the two divergent structural trends can be seen (Figure 3 and 4). Note that the known gold occurrences are associated with the edge of the high resistivity areas. These associations may indicate further areas of potential for gold mineralization on the Doyle Property.
The VLF-EM anomalies also follow the general structural trends. It is noted that the main gold mineralization discovered to date lie along VLF-EM anomalies pointing to the potential for other discoveries along these trends.
Advance United CEO Jim Atkinson states, “We are pleased with the excellent results and the potential of the property and the work that Jeremy has completed on the interpretation of the Terraquest airborne results. We are very excited to now to be developing a follow up program for these promising results and we are confident this will generate new drill targets for 2022. This work program further exemplifies the value of the Company’s business model to re-work data to document quantifiable resources and reserves using current standards and modern technology, thus increasing the value.”
About the Doyle Property
The Doyle Property is located approximately 92 kilometers southeast of Wawa, Ontario within the Batchewana Volcanic Belt of the Abitibi Province. The structural and geological architecture of the Batchawana Greenstone belt is conducive to a variety of gold depositional environments similar in nature and significance to other gold bearing deposits in Archean-aged greenstone belts hosted within the Superior Province. Noteworthy, these typically fall into the category of “orogenic gold deposit” types in brittle-ductile structurally related regimes similar to the Timmins Gold Camp, the Hemlo Gold Deposits, and the gold deposits of the Doyon-Bousquet Camp in Quebec. Orogenic gold deposit types would be the focus of future exploration activities on the Doyle Property.
The Doyle Property lies within the Batchawana Greenstone Belt of the Wawa-Abitibi Terrane. Both these Terranes are well known for hosting Orogenic Gold Deposits.
Three styles of orogenic gold mineralization occur on the Property. These are, but not limited to:
- Gold-enriched semi-massive to massive sulphide horizons in a felsic tuff volcanic pile
- Lode gold auriferous quartz veins, and
- Disseminated gold in silicified and pyritized shear zones.
The entire Doyle Property consists of a total of 109 unpatented mining claim cells and covers an area of approximately 2,365 hectares.
The most significant and recent exploration on the Doyle Property was carried out by Tri-Origin Exploration which included drilling programs from 1990 – 1995. These programs are deemed significant, and their geological observations support deposit model types being sought. The Focus of the Tri-Origin work was on a model of similarity of the Doyle property geology and mineralization to the Hemlo deposit, which has produced over 21 million ounces of gold1. Tri-Origin completed geological, geophysical, and geochemical programs and drilled a total of 37 drill holes for 8,053 m. Anomalous gold values were intersected in numerous drill holes and visible gold was observed in two holes. Drill hole T94-22 intersected 49.58 g/t gold over one meter and drill hole T95-34 intersected 17.49 g/t gold over one meter.
Further details of the Doyle Property will be available in the Technical Report on Sedar and the Company’s website in the coming weeks.

Advance United, headquartered in Toronto, Canada, is traded on the Canadian Securities Exchange in Canada under the symbol “AUHI” and the Börse Frankfurt Stock Exchange in Germany under the symbol “9I0.”
We are a different kind of Canadian junior mining company, one designed to succeed where other junior mining companies fail. We are involved exclusively in the acquisition and advancement of past producing gold mines – with no intent to bring them back into production or to mine them ourselves. Our expertise is in identifying and acquiring undervalued gold properties with significant historical work, which were uneconomic at the time, but we believe have economic value at today’s price of gold.
We fund the development of re-working historic data and applying modern technology to underwrite new qualified reports, document quantifiable resources and reserves to current standards, thereby recognizing the current value.
Our purpose is to bring immediate and long-term value to our partners and shareholders while seeking to eliminate exploration risk, so that we can all advance united in the shortest possible time frame.
