Directive transparence : information réglementée

13/06/2022 15:25

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 13, 2022 / Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX:GRC)(OTCQB:GRCAF) (the "Company" or "GRC") releases a significant updated mineral resource estimate for its Gold Springs Project, taking into consideration all the 2021 drilling results at North and South Jumbo, Tremor, Charlie Ross, and White Point.

Highlights include:

Measured Resource

548,071

oz gold equivalent

Indicated Resource

456,932

oz gold equivalent

Total M&I Resource

1,005,003

oz gold equivalent

Inferred Resource

144,379

oz gold equivalent

Gold equivalent based on US$1,800/oz gold and US$25/oz silver.

Antonio Canton, President and CEO, stated:

"Today with a resource estimate of 1 million oz gold equivalent, we have reached the 1st important milestone of our Company's objective to rapidly expand our gold resource.

Our team is now focused on the 2022 drilling program to reach the 2nd milestone, as we have planned a new resource update and PEA for the end of the year. Our goal is to reach within the next 2 years the 3rd milestone and complete the mine permitting process".

Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration, stated:

"This resource update confirms that Gold Springs has significant potential to expand its resources, as in 2021 we added two new ones (Charlie Ross and White Point) and substantially increased the total number of ounces.

Only by visiting the area, one can realize the magnitude of our project, which covers approximately 8,000 ha and includes not 1 or 2 targets, but 33 high-potential gold targets, 6 of which already host a resource estimate of 1,005,003 M&I oz and 144,379 inferred oz of gold equivalent open to expansion and covering only 15% of the property. As the resources are near the surface, they could be mined by shallow open pit and a technically simple heap-leach operation.

The size of the Gold Springs Project, the important number of gold targets, the technical data available so far, the water rights, and its location in one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world, are strong indicators that GRC has a large gold project with a significant growth potential. I believe Gold Springs will get more and more attention from major mining companies as the resource continues to grow."

The inferred resource is in addition to the measured and indicated resource. Numbers have been rounded, which may lead to some numbers not adding up exactly. Gold Equivalent calculation uses a gold/silver price ratio of 72 ($1,800/$25). Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The resource estimate reflects gross metal content that is not adjusted for metallurgical recoveries.

The new mineral resource estimate is an update from the 2020 mineral resource estimate to mainly incorporate the drilling information of the 2021 drill program conducted at the South and North Jumbo, Tremor, Charlie Ross and White Point deposits.

The updated resource estimate broken down by deposit (pit) is as follows:
