2.4 Kilometers Strontium/Yttrium Ratios Trend Confirms Broadway’s Gold-Copper Porphyry System
Oakville, ON – November 14, 2018 – Broadway Gold Mining Ltd. (“Broadway” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: BRD) (OTCQB: BDWYF) is pleased to announce the discovery of statistically significant strontium/yttrium ratios over a 2.4 kilometer contact zone. Broadway’s data is based on 571 rock chip and 1,468 soil samples taken across prospective areas of the property, including the Broadway and Madison mines. The geochemical model reveals distinctive Sr/Y ratio-based-anomalies that are found throughout a 2.4-kilometer zone of strong structural preparation and mineralization. Following these findings, the field team completed a retrospective analysis of the rock chip and soil geochemistry files and corroborated similar favorable Sr/Y ratios in 231 samples.
“These anomalies indicate through-going structures and leakage of favorable geochemistry; we are in the right place to vector into a significant Au-Cu porphyry discovery.”said Philip Mulholland, Chief Geologist, Broadway.

ALS labs in Vancouver, BC conducted the sample prep and analysis utilizing AuME-ST43 for soil samples and Au-ICP21 for rock samples. Laboratory duplicates, blanks and standard samples confirm that good quality control standards were followed by the laboratory and by the ground team for this group of sample results. A total of 1,468 assays are reported in this soil sample set. These assay results indicate several coincident multi-element anomalies that are consistent with porphyry-based mineralization. Each sample was assayed for gold, silver, copper, molybdenum, manganese, lead, zinc and up to 42 other elements.
Slide 1, Whole Rock Geochemistry of Madison Project felsic intrusions
Based on work done by Castillo et al., 1999; Macpherson et al., 2006; Wang et al., 2006; Zhang et al., 2006; Hora et al., 2009; and, Chiaradia, 2009;this slide displays Strontium/Yttrium ratios for the variety of intrusions located on the Madison Property. The left-hand side of the slide shows that most of our intrusives rocks fall within the Adakite-like magmas; a few samples fall outside. Calc-alkaline arc rocks that share these distinct trace-element signatures are known as ‘adakite-like’. Adakitic signatures are commonly associated with economic porphyry-style Cu–Au–Mo ore deposits. Seventeen whole rock samples were collected throughout the Madison property both from surface exposures and drill core in holes C17-22, 23, 24 and 27. Samples were submitted to ALS labs for analysis utilizing a ME-MS61r.
