VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 17, 2020 /CNW/ - Sable Resources Ltd. ("Sable" or the "Company") (TSXV: SAE) (OTCQB: SBLRF) is pleased to announce that it has expanded its land position at El Fierro Project from initial 6,054 hectares to 46,391 hectares.
Through the signing of two option agreements ("Agreement A" and "Agreement B", collectively the "Agreements) with arm's length parties in Argentina, Sable has added a group of ten claims comprising 36,131 hectares of strategic ground surrounding El Fierro project; additionally the company has staked 4,206 hectares of open ground west of the Fierro Alto zone. Location of the new claims is shown in Figure 1.
Ruben Padilla, President and CEO of Sable stated, "With the acquisition of this highly prospective ground, we have expanded and consolidated our position at the El Fierro Project to advance Sable's systematic exploration approach and increase chances to discover a district scale mineral system."
The new properties host several alteration zones and multiple showings that will see exploration activity in the upcoming months. With the acquired claims Sable also controls the majority of a large regional magnetic anomaly that could be indicative of a porphyry system in depth (Figure 2). Some grab samples collected during preliminary recognition in two of the new areas have returned encouraging values of up to 3.67 g/t Au, and 150 g/t Ag in different localities shown in Figure 3.
Under the terms of Agreement A, Sable can acquire 100% of two claims for a total cost of U$81,000 in annual payments as shown in Table 1. Under the terms of Agreement B, Sable can acquire 51% of eight claims completing payments for a total of U$640,000 in four years as presented in Table 2. Subsequent to these payments, and during the following two year period, Sable can acquire the remainder 49% of the properties by making a single payment of U$900,000. Additionally, the optionor will be granted a royalty of 1.5% of the Net Smelter Returns (NSR) from which Sable will be entitled to purchase 0.5% for a purchase price of U$1,500,000 at any moment after reaching 100% interest in the properties.

The El Fierro Project is located 250 km northwest of San Juan, Argentina and 120 km north of Sable's Don Julio Project in one of the best-known historical mining districts in the San Juan province. The El Fierro Project consists of three main known mineralized areas, Fierro Alto, Fierro Bajo, and La Verde over an area of 8km by 4km. The three areas host a number of old artisanal mining workings where silver, lead and zinc were intermittently mined since the late 1800's until the 1960s decade; the property has never been drilled. Sable currently controls 46,391 hectares covering all the historically mineralized areas and additional highly prospective ground over a large magnetic anomaly.

SAMPLE PREPARATION AND QA/QC
Sample preparation for projects in Argentina is carried out by ALS Chemex Argentina, a subsidiary of ALS Minerals, at its facility located in Mendoza, Argentina. Analyses are carried out at their laboratory in Lima, Peru. Sample preparation includes drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60°C, fine crushing of the sample to at least 70% passing less than 2 mm, sample splitting using a riffle splitter, and pulverizing a 250 g split to at least 85% passing 75 microns (code PREP-31).
Gold was analyzed by fire assay of a 30 g sample split with detection by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES); multi-elements were analyzed by an aqua regia digestion of a 1 gram sub-sample with detection by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES) for 35 elements (Ag, Al, As, B, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Ga, Hg, K, La, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, P, Pb, S, Sb, Sc, Sr, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Zn) (codes Au-ICP21 and ME-ICP41). This digestion method dissolves most minerals but not all elements are quantitatively extracted in some sample matrices. Over limit Ag, Cu, Pb, Zn OG46 analyses are conducted when samples exceed the upper detection limits; this method includes Aqua Regia digestion and ICP-AES finish. Method Ag-GRA21 which includes Fire Assay with gravimetric finish is applied when Ag exceeds 1500 g/t. Control samples (standards, blanks, and duplicates) are inserted systematically and their results evaluated according to the Company protocols.
