Vancouver, B.C. - TerraX Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: TXR; Frankfurt: TX0; OTC Pink: TRXXF) is pleased to announce further assay results from the Company’s summer field program on the Yellowknife City Gold project.
High grade gold assays from grab sampling have extended the strike of the Gull and Rater Lake zones. As previously reported these new targets are in the same mafic volcanic geology that also hosted the Giant and Con mines, and are within TerraX’s Core Gold exploration area. The highlight assays are 171.0 g/t Au, 5.60 g/t Au, 5.29 g/t Au, and 4.49 g/t Au on the Rater Lake zones, and 72.0 g/t Au, 52.5 g/t Au, 29.0 g/t Au, and 12.95 g/t Au on the Gull Lake Zone.
David Suda, President and CEO stated: “The results of our summer field work continue to feed our pipeline of drill targets.” David Suda further stated: “It is highly encouraging to see surface results which extend potential strike to the Giant mine structure.”
These gold zones are interpreted as being the continuation of the Giant Mine gold system. The Rater Lake structure has been followed for 300 meters north, and then appears to be offset to the west on the Akaitcho Fault, possibly continuing as the Gull Lake structure for another 1200 meters north. A second sub-parallel zone appears on the south side of Rater Lake with high grade values up to 171 g/t Au. (see map available here). The multiple gold bearing structures in this area enhance the expanding resource potential of the Northbelt Core Gold Area.
Assay values from grab sampling at Gull and Rater Lakes range from nil to a high of 171.0 g/t Au. Sampling included insertion of certified standards and blanks into the stream of samples for chemical analysis. Samples were prepared at ALS Chemex's laboratory in Yellowknife and shipped to their Vancouver facility for gold analysis by fire assay and other elements by ICP analysis. ALS is a certified and accredited laboratory service. It should be noted that, due to their selective nature, assay results from grab samples may not be indicative of the overall grade and extent of mineralization on the subject area.

About the Yellowknife City Gold Project
The Yellowknife City Gold ("YCG") project encompasses 772 sq km of contiguous land immediately north, south and east of the City of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Through a series of acquisitions, TerraX controls one of the six major high-grade gold camps in Canada. Being within 10 km of the City of Yellowknife, the YCG is close to vital infrastructure, including all-season roads, air transportation, service providers, hydro-electric power and skilled tradespeople.
The YCG lies on the prolific Yellowknife greenstone belt, covering 70 km of strike length along the main mineralized break in the Yellowknife gold district, including the southern and northern extensions of the shear system that hosted the high-grade Con and Giant gold mines. The project area contains multiple shears that are the recognized hosts for gold deposits in the Yellowknife gold district, with innumerable gold showings and recent high-grade drill results that serve to indicate the project's potential as a world-class gold district.
