GoGold Announces Results of Regional Exploration Drilling Program


GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (OTCQX: GLGDF) is pleased to release the results of 6 drill holes from the El Nayar area and 15 drill holes from the Gran Cabrera area within Los Ricos North property. The El Nayar and Gran Cabrera areas are targets of the Los Ricos North regional exploration drilling program.  Hole LRGNY-21-027 at El Nayar intersected 2,192 g/t silver equivalent over 1.3m, contained within 18.2m of 241 g/t AgEq.  At Gran Cabrera, hole LRGCB-22-020 intersected 905 g/t AgEq over 1.6m, contained within 17.3m of 132 g/t AgEq. See Table 1 for a breakdown of gold and silver values at El Nayar and Table 2 for Gran Cabrera.

“This drilling represents results from exploration from outside of our resource areas and are some of the first results from these new targets. These targets will require future drilling which will be aimed at developing future resources. At Gran Cabrera, we encountered voids in our drilling due to historical underground mining on half of the holes which we drilled, with the voids averaging about 4 metres. As we continue exploring this area, our focus is locating areas where the high grade portion of the veins has not been mined out,” said Brad Langille, President and CEO. “We’ve shifted some of our drilling rigs to Los Ricos South as a re-evaluation of our data has opened up additional areas for potential growth of the mineral resource. In addition to our drilling, we continue to work on consolidation of additional ground in Los Ricos South and expect an update on that in the near future.”

El Nayar is located approximately 6 kilometres north-west of the La Trini deposit within Los Ricos North (see Figure 3). It consists of multiple subvertical veins and stockwork mineralization, and limited historical underground mining.  La Castellana vein is an epithermal argentiferous quartz vein ranging from 1m to 2m in width and averaging about 1.20 m. The vein contains minor credits in gold, zinc, lead and copper in addition to the silver. The mineralization is a mixture of sulphide and oxide species; galena, sphalerite, pyrite, unidentified argentiferous minerals (mostly black), copper carbonates and some manganese minerals were observed underground.

Gran Cabrera is located approximately 2 kilometres northwest of La Trini (see Figure 3).  The Gran Cabrera mega-system contains stockworks, breccia hosted ore bodies, and large vein feeder sub-systems at the intersection of the Sierra Madre and the Trans Mexican Volcanic Arc. Within the property there are more than fifteen significant old precious metals mines that historically produced high grade silver-gold ore periodically over a period of more than 350 years beginning with their discovery by early Spanish Conquistadors.  The Company’s exploration team has conducted a detailed sampling and mapping program within the last year and has identified dozens of historical underground workings along an E-W trending structure over a distance of 1,700 metres along strike and widths extending more than 20 metres.

Los Ricos District Exploration Projects

The Company’s two exploration projects at its Los Ricos Property are in Jalisco state, Mexico. The Los Ricos South Project began in March 2019 and an initial Mineral Resource was announced on July 29, 2020 which disclosed a Measured & Indicated Mineral Resource of 63.7 million ounces AgEq grading 199 g/t AgEq contained in 10.0 million tonnes, and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 19.9 million ounces AgEq grading 190 g/t AgEq contained in 3.3 million tonnes.  An initial PEA on the project was announced on January 20, 2021 indicating an NPV5% of US$295M.

The Los Ricos North Project was launched in March 2020 and an initial Mineral Resource was announced on December 7, 2021, which disclosed an Indicated Mineral Resource of 87.8 million ounces AgEq grading 122 g/t AgEq contained in 22.3 million tonnes, and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 73.2 million ounces AgEq grading 111 g/t AgEq contained in 20.5 million tonnes. The Company has a drill program for an additional 100,000 metres of drilling for 2022 in place.


Procedure, Quality Assurance / Quality Control and Data Verification 

The diamond drill core (HQ size) is geologically logged, photographed and marked for sampling. When the sample lengths are determined, the full core is sawn with a diamond blade core saw with one half of the core being bagged and tagged for assay. The remaining half portion is returned to the core trays for storage and/or for metallurgical test work.

The sealed and tagged sample bags are transported to the ActLabs facility in Zacatecas, Mexico. ActLabs crushes the samples and prepares 200-300 gram pulp samples with ninety percent passing Tyler 150 mesh (106μm). The pulps are assayed for gold using a 50-gram charge by fire assay (Code 1A2-50) and over limits greater than 10 grams per tonne are re-assayed using a gravimetric finish (Code 1A3-50). Silver and multi-element analysis is completed using total digestion (Code 1F2 Total Digestion ICP). Over limits greater than 100 grams per tonne silver are re-assayed using a gravimetric finish (Code 8-Ag FA-GRAV Ag).

Quality assurance and quality control procedures monitor the chain-of-custody of the samples and includes the systematic insertion and monitoring of appropriate reference materials (certified standards, blanks and duplicates) into the sample strings. The results of the assaying of the QA/QC material included in each batch are tracked to ensure the integrity of the assay data. All results stated in this announcement have passed GoGold’s QA/QC protocols.
