Gold Springs Resource Corp. Discovers high-grade gold 130 meters north of the Jumbo resource
Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX: GRC, OTCQB: GRCAF) (the “Company” or “GRC”) has received assays from several additional holes located within the Jumbo Trend on the Utah portion of its large flagship Gold Springs project located in the USA on the border of Nevada and Utah, one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world.
- 5.95 g/t gold with 66.5 g/t silver over 24.4 meters, which included
27.30 g/t gold with 259.4 g/t silver over 4.6 meters, and
0.52 g/t gold with 4.7 g/t silver over 82.3 meters in hole J-21-006 (North Jumbo)
- 0.52 g/t gold with 3.3 g/t silver over 16.8 meters in hole E-21-016 (South Jumbo)
- 1.02 g/t gold with 99.7 g/t silver over 1.5 meters in hole JP-21-004 (Juniper).
Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration, stated: “Hole J-21-006 is extremely important as it confirms that there are higher-grade gold areas as we can see in the upper part of the hole, and also for its lower thick intercept with similar grades of our current resource. These results extend gold mineralization an additional 130 meters north of the current North Jumbo resource. We want to continue drilling following this strong CSAMT geophysical high resistivity area which extends to the north for 1,200 meters, with the objective of testing the continuation of this high-grade gold mineralization and the potential extension of the North Jumbo resource area”.
2021 ongoing drilling program:
The Company has now completed 52 holes for 10,624 of the 23,300 meters program:
- 28 holes at the Jumbo Trend (16 at South Jumbo, 3 at Central Jumbo, 9 at North Jumbo)
- 15 holes at Charlie Ross
- 5 holes at Juniper
- 3 holes at White Point
- 1 hole at North Jennie.
The Company’s current plan is to drill 7 additional holes at White Point and then follow up the holes at North Jumbo with good gold results, in particularly around hole J-21-006, with the objective of testing the continuation of this high-grade gold mineralization and the potential extension of the North Jumbo resource area.
Drilling highlights include
Gold Equivalent* (g/t)
* Gold Equivalent calculated at $1,800 gold and $25 silver
** True thickness is estimated to be 80-100% of total thickness

The Qualified Person on the Gold Springs property is Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration of Gold Springs Resource Corp. and he has reviewed and approved the content of this press release. The Qualified Person verified the data disclosed herein for its geological reasonableness, checked all the inputs and verified the analytical data through an analysis of the blanks and standards submitted with the drill-chip samples.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control
Approximately 7 kg of RC chips were sent to the laboratory for each 1.52 meters drill interval. Standards and blanks are submitted into the sample stream at the rate of 15% for QA/QC purposes. In addition, the laboratory also includes duplicates of samples, standards and blanks. The results of these check assays are reviewed prior to the release of data. All RC sample assays are also reviewed for their geological context and checked against the drill logs.
Assays were performed in Sparks, Nevada by Paragon Geochemical, an ISO 9001:2000 Certified and independent laboratory. Gold was analyzed by fire assay of a 30-gram sample with an AAS finish with samples assaying greater than 3 g/t re-assayed using a 30-gram sample and a gravity finish. All other elements were analyzed by a four-acid leach ICP method.
