Gold Springs Resource Corp. Announces Start of Ground-Based Geophysical Survey at Gold Springs
June 23, 2020, Vancouver, British Columbia— Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX: GRC, OTCQB: GRCAF) (the “Company” or “GRC”), is pleased to announce that yesterday, the Company has commenced a ground-based geophysical survey, known as CSAMT, on the Utah side of the Gold Springs project. The survey will be conducted by Zonge International, a well-known geophysical services company based in Reno, Nevada USA.
The CSAMT survey will fill gaps left by a previous CSAMT survey done at Gold Springs in 2004. These gap zones are located in the Jumbo trend and include the Central Jumbo target, which is the area between the North and South Jumbo resource blocks, the northern-extension of the North Jumbo resource, the northern extension of the Juniper target, as well as the western extension of the South Jumbo Resource block, which also includes the Fitch target.
The CSAMT survey is an important component of GRC’s 2020 exploration program as it will attempt to better delineate mineralized zones which are closely associated with resistivity anomalies. The surveys will help to further define some of the priority targets and aid in future drill planning. Geophysical data for these gap zones is covered by the existing ZTEM (Z-Tipper Electromagnetic System) airborne geophysics survey done at Gold Springs, however, the ground geophysical data provides greater details and helps identify mineralized structures within the trends thus aiding in drill hole targeting.
Matias Herrero, President and CEO of GRC commented “Geophysics plays a significant role in the successful targeting of gold mineralization at Gold Springs. Our existing four resources at Gold Springs are all associated with high resistivity geophysical responses. What is exciting about the future of the project is that all of the 24 additional targets at Gold Springs are closely associated with resistivity highs seen from the ZTEM and CSAMT surveys”. Mr. Herrero further commented “We are looking forward to the collection of the CSAMT data which will allow us to better understand the structural corridors and faulting systems within the Jumbo trend and to refine the existing drill target areas as well as generating new surface and buried targets”.
CSAMT raw data will be processed and interpreted, with results anticipated in July.

CSAMT (Controlled Source Audio-frequency Magnetotellurics) is a ground-based geophysical survey method from which electrical resistivity information can be obtained from sub-surface down to approximately 1,000 metres. The survey is helpful in identifying zones of both electrically resistive and conductive features that could represent silicification and clay alteration related to epithermal vein systems such as the ones at Gold Springs.
