Vancouver, British Columbia— Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX: GRC, OTCQB: GRCAF) (the “Company” or “GRC”), has received the first assays results from its 2021 ongoing drill program at the Gold Springs project located on the border of Nevada and Utah, USA, in the prolific Great Basin of Western USA, one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world.
- 5.30 g/t gold with 12.4 g/t silver over 19.8 meters in hole E-21-012 (South Jumbo);
- 1.58 g/t gold with 8.3 g/t silver over 9.1 meters in hole E-21-004 (South Jumbo);
- 2.10 g/t gold with 3.4 g/t silver over 3.1 meters in hole J-21-001 (North Jumbo); and
- 4.32 g/t gold with 10.3 g/t silver over 1.6 meters in hole J-21-001 (North Jumbo).
Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration, stated:
- “The very good result of the hole E-21-012 with 5.3 g/t gold over nearly 20 meters at its bottom is a very important gold intercept that confirms our belief that the Jumbo South resource not only continues at depth, but could also extend further west. Several holes will be planned in the future to fully test the depth and western projections of this significant mineralization.
- Holes E-21-004, 005 and 011 were all drilled in the South Jumbo Gap Zone, a 250-meter-long gap in the resource with only one previous hole. These holes demonstrate that mineralization continues through this area which should have a positive impact on the overall resource.
- The one North Jumbo resource step out hole J-21-001 succeeded in finding narrow intercepts with high-grade gold values”.
2021 ongoing drilling program
Gold was seen in 9 of the 12 holes located in the South Jumbo resource area. These holes were designed to test for extensions of the resource to the south, within the gap zone and at depth.
The Company has now completed 31 holes for a total of 6,020 meters of the budgeted 8,100-meters drill program. Assays have been received for the first 15 holes. The results disclosed in this news release are from the Juniper target (2 holes), North Jumbo (1 hole), and South Jumbo (12 holes). The drilling was designed to test for new areas of mineralization focusing on the ground based CSAMT geophysical survey (see press release September 2, 2020) and to expand upon the existing resources.
The drill program is currently completing 2 additional holes at the Juniper target to test the strong geophysical response in this area. Once those holes are completed, the drill program will move to the historic Charlie Ross mine site and the Company will conduct the first ever drilling in this area. Recent geophysical work has shown that the Charlie Ross, Tin Can, Pope, and Red Light targets may be connected at depth and the Company expects that this first drilling will help to answer that question.
Summary of drill intercepts:
Hole ended in mineralization. True thickness is estimated to be 70-100% of reported length. Grams per tonne of gold and silver abbreviated as “Au g/t” and “Ag g/t” respectively.

Randall Moore, Executive Vice-President Exploration, Gold Springs Resource Corp., is the Company’s designated Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) and he has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information contained in this news release.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control
Approximately 7 kg of RC chips were sent to the laboratory for each 1.52 meter 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.
