VIOR’S YEAR IN REVIEW AND 2022 PLANS
Montreal, Canada, January 12, 2022 – Vior Inc. (“Vior” or the “Corporation”), (TSX-V: VIO, FRANKFURT: VL51) is pleased to provide shareholders with a year in review and 2022 plans.
Mark Fedosiewich, President and CEO of Vior commented:
“2021 was quite a year for Vior! As we welcome in a new year, the Vior team has a lot to be proud of and to reflect on. In a very short period of time, we were successful at consolidating our flagship Belleterre district-scale gold camp, including the option to acquire 100% of the former past-producing high-grade Belleterre gold mine. After this consolidation, we quickly completed two months of field prospection, including detailed geophysics and an extensive data compilation program that led to a new 3D geological model—a first for Belleterre. This systematic exploration strategy has provided us with numerous high-quality drill targets in the brownfield sectors of the project, where we had recently confirmed the high-grade gold component at surface.
At Belleterre, we have just completed approximately 4,000 meters of drilling for our Phase 1 drill program, and assay results are expected in Q1 2022. Given the number of high-quality drill targets that our technical team has identified, and the need to vectorize on some of our Phase 1 targets and structures, we have decided to immediately begin a Phase 2 drill program of 5,000 meters as soon as we can mobilize a drill. Our recent flow-through share financing has provided us with a comfortable financial cushion that will allow us to complete this next phase of drilling. Our primary objective in 2022 is to discover the next high-grade Belleterre gold deposit and to drill and build ounces, and we are very optimistic about our prospects for a potential new discovery.
In addition, we continue to advance and add value to our other Quebec-based gold projects, which should reward our shareholders as the precious metals bull market advances. We are also excited about the significant progress being made at Ridgeline Minerals Corp, where Vior is a significant shareholder, in particular, their recent earn-in agreement with Nevada Gold Mines at their Swift project and their near-surface silver/gold discovery at their 100% owned Selena project.
We believe that we have built a strong project portfolio from which we will look to build shareholder value with strong momentum during an exciting 2022.
We will be hosting a webinar on January 26, 2022 at 12:00pm EST to provide more details on the exciting plans that we have in store for 2022. Register HERE.
Thank you for your support and confidence in Vior. Best wishes and Happy New Year!”
