February 29, 2024 – Vancouver, B.C.; Muzhu Mining Ltd. (CSE: MUZU) (“Muzhu”) ( is pleased to announce completion of a 200m drill program on its Sleeping Giant South Property. Two 100m holes were drilled less than 1 km southwest of the adjacent Sleeping Giant Gold Mine and Processing Mill currently owned and operated by Abcourt Mines Inc. (TSX.V: ABI). (

The two drill targets were located on favourable anomalies of locally silicified horizon beds enriched in disseminated sulphides identified from an Induced Polarization Survey conducted on a northwest segment of Muzhu’s Sleeping Giant South Property,

Muzhu holds 100% interest in the Sleeping Giant South Property, located in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, James Bay, Quebec. The property is adjacent to Abcourt’s Sleeping Giant Gold Mine and less than 1 km southwest of its operating 750 tpd mill. The mill is currently processing ore from Abcourt’s properties with announced plans to process ore from the Sleeping Giant Mine. Abcourt also announced plans to begin definition and exploration drilling in preparation for an updated mineral resource estimate (MRE), then complete an economic prefeasibility study on the Sleeping Giant Mine and Property.

On January 31, 2024 Abcourt announced Sleeping Giant Mine drill results from hole 29-266 which produced significant gold intersections of 14.35 g/t over 1.3 m, 15.67 g/t over 3.21 m, 29.29 g/t over 0.5 m and a high of 66.92 g/t over 0.5 m, all between depths of only 54.9 m and 91.5 m.

Dwayne Yaretz, CEO, stated, “Two of Abcourt’s historical drill holes, next to the property line between Abcourt and Muzhu’s Sleeping Giant South Property, reported greater than 10 g/t gold. These combined findings are significant as they reinforce Muzhu’s expectation and the likelihood that the gold mineralization trend on Abcourt’s property could extend onto our property and supports Muzhu’s plan to continue further exploration to identify additional strategic drill targets. The Company will announce the results from its most recent drill program as they become available.’’
