Falco Announces Significant Increase in Horne 5 Resources

Oct 03, 2016

7.1 Million oz AuEq Measured & Indicated; 1.7 Million oz AuEq Inferred

MONTREAL, QC --(Marketwired - October 03, 2016) - Falco Resources (TSX VENTURE: FPC) ("Falco" or the "Company") is pleased to report an updated mineral resource estimate for its wholly-owned Horne 5 gold project located in Rouyn-Noranda, Québec. Gold equivalent resources have increased significantly as a result of this update. The updated resource estimate now includes and combines the newly assembled historical underground channel sample database, new economic parameters as per the Company's recently published preliminary economic assessment ("PEA"), including lowering of the NSR cut-off, additional 2016 drilling results and revised commodity pricing assumptions. New Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources have been updated for the Horne 5 deposit, which now contains 6 high grade zones.

This updated resource estimate increases Gold Equivalent M&I resources by 32 percent.

The updated resource estimate lays the foundation for the completion of a feasibility study in 2017. This update was undertaken to support feasibility work on the Horne 5 Project and to convert part of Indicated Mineral Resources into Measured Mineral Resources by adding 14,799 samples from the historical underground channel sample database into the resource estimate.

--  Horne 5 is now estimated to host:


    --  a Measured Resource of 736,000 gold equivalent ounces ("oz AuEq"),
        including 475,410 oz Au contained in 9.4 million tonnes averaging
        2.45 g/t AuEq (1.58 g/t Au; 16.33 g/t Ag; 0.18% Cu; 0.81% Zn).


    --  an Indicated Resource of 6,336,000 gold equivalent ounces ("oz
        AuEq"), including 4,088,383 oz Au contained in 81.7 million tonnes
        averaging 2.41 g/t AuEq (1.56 g/t Au; 14.19 g/t Ag; 0.18% Cu; 0.86%
        Zn).


    --  an Inferred Resource of 1,710,000 oz AuEq, including 1,053,061 oz Au
        contained in 22.3 million tonnes averaging 2.39 g/t AuEq (1.47 g/t
        Au; 22.98 g/t Ag; 0.2% Cu; 0.68% Zn).


--  The Measured & Indicated Resources represent 81% of the total resources
    in AuEq content (oz).


--  The Measured Resources represent 10% of the Measured & Indicated
    resources in AuEq content (oz). The recently completed historical
    underground channel chip sample database confirmed Au, Cu and Zn
    modelled grades and provided the data to upgrade a portion of the
    Indicated Resource into the Measured Resource category.


--  A Feasibility study which will incorporate the updated Horne 5 resource
    estimate has been commenced and is planned to be completed in the first
    half of 2017.


--  Ongoing drill programs are focussing on additional exploration targets
    in the vicinity of the Horne 5 Deposit. The company plans to drill
    20,000 metres at the Horne 5 West and Quemont Extension exploration
    targets in 2016.



Luc Lessard, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "The resource estimate update will enable Falco to aggressively pursue the advancement of the feasibility study on the Horne 5 Project. Establishing an initial Measured Resource was critical to the advancement of the technical studies. The outlined Horne 5 prospective large bulk-tonnage underground resource has enabled Falco to commission work on developing a state-of-the-art highly mechanized mining project."

Horne 5 Resource Estimate

The updated Horne 5 resource estimate is based on 5,977 diamond drill holes (478,281m) of which 4,138 crosscut mineralized zones for a total of 177,996m of core within these zones.

Falco's 2015-2016 confirmation and 2016 exploration drill holes were collared from surface. The 2015-2016 confirmation drill holes successfully confirmed previously drilled areas between 650m and 2,035m below surface. The 2016 exploration drill results completed thus far and which were included in the resource locally expanded known resource envelops and strengthened the geological model. The historic Noranda holes were collared at depths ranging from 600m to 2,300m below surface across a strike length of up to 1,000m. The majority of drilling was conducted as radiating "fan drilling" on 15m spacing from 40 underground working levels developed throughout the deposit. The 15m spacing is significantly closer than standard drill spacing used in resource estimation work at present day providing a very high level of confidence in the data. Falco sampled at 1m intervals, Noranda dominantly sampled at 3m core lengths (which homogenizes individual higher grade results), generating the more than 92,000 assays that were used in the resource estimate.

The 43-101 technical report will be delivered and filed on SEDAR within the next 45 days.

Resource Estimate Notes:
1.   The effective date of the resource estimate is September 26, 2016. The
     Independent and Qualified Persons for the Mineral Resource Estimate as
     required by National Instrument 43-101 are Carl Pelletier, P. Geo.,
     B.Sc. and Guilhem Servelle, P.Geo., M.Sc., both employees of InnovExplo
     Inc.
2.   Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and have not demonstrated
     economic viability.
3.   While the results are presented undiluted and in situ, the reported
     mineral resources are considered by the Qualified Persons to have
     reasonable prospects for economic extraction.
4.   These estimates include six (6) low grade gold-bearing mineralized
     zones.
5.   The principal low-grade gold-bearing mineralized zone includes six (6)
     high-grade gold-bearing zones, one (1) high-grade copper-bearing zone,
     one (1) high grade zinc-bearing zone, three (3) high-grade silver-
     bearing zones. Note that these high-grade zones may overlap each other.
6.   Resources were compiled at NSR cut-offs of C$40, C$45, C$50, C$55,
     C$60, C$65, C$70, C$75, C$80, C$85, C$90, C$95, and C$100 per tonne for
     sensitivity purposes.
7.   The official base case resource is reported at a C$55 per tonne NSR
     cut-off.
8.   The appropriate NSR cut-off will vary depending on prevailing economic
     and operational parameters to be determined.
9.   NSR estimates are based on the following assumptions: exchange rate of
     $C1.30/$US, metal prices of (all $US): gold $1,300/oz, silver $18.50,
     copper $2.15/lb, zinc $1.00/lb (Long term analyst consensus price
     forecast study). Net recoveries of 86.8% for gold, 74.9% for silver,
     67.3% for zinc and 74.0% for copper. Smelting cost (including
     transportation) C$6.52 per tonne (based on the Cost Mine service as
     well as on non-public smelter contract obtained from one of the
     proposed destinations and on talks with transport providers).
10.  Gold equivalent calculations assume these same metal prices.
11.  Inferred resources are separate from Indicated Resources
12.  The quantity and grade of reported Inferred Resources in this estimate
     are uncertain in nature and there has not been sufficient work to
     define these Inferred Resources as Indicated or Measured Resources. It
     is uncertain if further work will result in upgrading them to an
     Indicated or Measured mineral resource category.
13.  The resource was estimated using Geovia GEMS 6.7. The estimate is based
     on 5,977 diamond drill holes (478,281m) of which 4,138 crosscut
     mineralized zones for a total of 177,996m of core within these zones.
     For silver the estimate also uses the results of an exhaustive
     metallurgical test comprising 2,112 diamond drill holes assayed for
     silver over a total length of 75,540 meters. A minimum true thickness
     of 7.0 m was applied, using the grade of the adjacent material when
     assayed, or a value of zero when not assayed. Only the silver
     interpolation in the Inferred resources does not use the material when
     not assayed.
14.  The estimate database contains also 14,799 channel samples for a total
     of 23,791m from drifts historically sampled. Channel sample data was
     only used for distance to composite criterion for resource
     classification purposes.
15.  91% of density values were estimated using historical drill hole iron
     assays data and Falco density data for an average of 3.41 g/cm3.
     Interpolation method use 3 pass ID2 for the ENV_A and HG_A to HG_F
     zones. 8% of density values were fixed at 2.88 g/cm3 for ENV_B to ENV_E
     zones due to the scarcity of the data. 2.88 g/cm3 representing the
     median of the available data. 1% of density values were fixed at 2.67
     g/cm3 for ENV_F zone due to the scarcity of the date and to adequately
     characterise this quartz-rich zone.
16.  Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the
     mineralized zones (composite = 3.0 metres). Tails shorter than 0.75 m
     were not created.
17.  Resources were evaluated from drill holes using an ID2 interpolation
     method in a block model (block size = 5 x 5 x 5 m).
18.  High grade capping was done on raw assay data and established on a per
     zone basis for gold (Au g/t): (HG_A: 35; HG_B: 35; HG_C: 25; HG_D: 35;
     HG_E: 25; HG_F: 35; ENV_A: 35; ENV_B: 25; ENV_C: 25; ENV_D: 20; E NV_E:
     35; ENV_F: 25) and for silver (Ag g/t): SG_HG:100; HG_D: 165; HG_F:
     165; ENV_A_SG_Low: 110; ENV_B: 100; ENV_C: 100; ENV_D: 100. Capping
     grade selection is supported by statistical analysis. No capping was
     applied to the Cu and Zn data based on statistical analysis.
19.  The Mineral Resources presented herein are categorized as Measured,
     Indicated and Inferred. The Inferred category is only defined within
     the areas where blocks were interpolated during pass 1 or pass 2 in
     areas where continuity is sufficient to avoid isolated blocks. The
     Indicated category is only defined by blocks interpolated in areas
     where the maximum distance to the closest drill hole composite is less
     than 25m for blocks interpolated in passes 1 and 2. The Measured
     category is only defined by blocks classified as indicated and in
     sufficient proximity to sampled drifts (< 15m). The average distance to
     the nearest composite is 6.97 meters for the Measured resources, 10.01
     meters for the Indicated resources and 40.10 meters for the Inferred
     resources.
20.  Tonnage estimates were rounded to the nearest hundred tonnes. Any
     discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects. Rounding
     practice follows the recommendations set out in Form 43-101F1.
21.  CIM definitions and guidelines were followed in estimating mineral
     resources.
22.  InnovExplo is not aware of any known environmental, permitting, legal,
     title-related, taxation, socio-political, marketing or other relevant
     issue that could materially affect the mineral resource estimate.
23.  Metal contained in ounces (troy) = metric tonnes x grade / 31.10348.
     Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). Metal contents
     are presented in ounces and pounds

QA/QC

Falco has implemented a strict quality-control program to comply with best practices in the sampling and analysis of drill core. As part of its QA/QC program, Falco inserts certified external mineralized standards. In the mineralized zones, each shipment is comprised of 27 samples in 2015 and 20 samples in 2016. Every shipment is composed of 23 or 20 samples, a standard, a blank, a pulp duplicate (in 2015) and a reject duplicate placed at the end of the batch to test the laboratory analysis methods and precision for each shipment of samples. Blanks and standards are inserted within the normal sample number sequence. Assay results and certificates of analysis are interpreted and reported on a regular basis. If anomalies are detected, the laboratory is advised and the entire batch of samples is re-assayed. In non-mineralized zones, every shipment is composed of 27 or 20 samples, which includes a standard and a blank. In non-mineralized zones, if anomalies are detected, the laboratory is advised, but the batch of samples is not necessarily re-assayed.

Cautionary Note Concerning Mineral Resources

This press release uses the term "inferred" resources and "indicated resources", we advise investors that while this term is recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize it. "Inferred" resources and "indicated resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated mineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves. United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.
