GoGold Drills 18.5m Averaging 3.07 g/t Gold Equivalent in Deepest Hole to Date at the Los Ricos Project Confirming Deposit Open at Depth

June 05, 2019 Go to Location

Halifax, NS – GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (“GoGold”, “the Company”) confirms the deposit is open at depth and continues to deliver strong assay results from an additional five diamond drill holes at the recently acquired 29 concession Los Ricos project located about 100 km northwest of the city of Guadalajara, Mexico.

“Our understanding of the Los Ricos deposit has been greatly enhanced by incorporating the historical underground gold and silver assay data from over 10,000 channel samples collected in the stopes, crosscuts, raises and winzes into our 3D models.  This has allowed us to visualize the down-dip extensions of the high-grade deposits and provides an approach for the team to continue drilling successful holes like these” stated Brad Langille, President and CEO.

Diamond drill hole LRGG-19-011 intersected 18.5m averaging 1.20 g/t gold, 140.3 g/t silver and 3.07 g/t gold equivalent, including 8.4m averaging 2.16 g/t gold, 227.8 g/t silver and 5.19 g/t gold equivalent.  The drill hole was laid out to drill 75m down dip below the deepest intersection to date on the property. 

Diamond drill hole LRGG-19-013 intersected 15.6m averaging 0.78 g/t gold, 194.7 g/t silver and 3.38 g/t gold equivalent including 8.8m averaging 1.30 g/t gold, 296.5 g/t silver and 5.25 g/t gold equivalent. Diamond drill hole LRGG-19-014 intersected 14.2m averaging 1.10 g/t gold, 126.8 g/t silver and 2.79 g/t gold equivalent including 7.70m averaging 1.94 g/t gold, 209.3 g/t silver and 4.73 g/t gold equivalent. 

Detailed intersections are in Table 1, and the location of drill holes are included in Table 2.  A visual representation of the drill holes is available at

GoGold commenced a 10,000 m diamond drilling program of HQ size core in conjunction with a field program of geological mapping, sampling and trenching on the property in March 2019.  The core drilling campaign is focused on defining the mineralized halo around the historical high grade ore shoots as defined by the underground workings and the 65 historical RC drill holes on the property.

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 / Quality Control and Data Verification

Quality assurance and quality control ("QA/QC") 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.
