GRC 2022 Drilling Objective for the “White Point” Target
Vancouver, British Columbia— Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX: GRC, OTCQB: GRCAF) (the “Company” or “GRC”), is pleased to present its 2022 drilling plans for the “White Point” target, located within the Nevada portion of the large 8000 ha Gold Springs Project located in USA (Nevada-Utah).
Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration, stated: “The White Point discovery is a great opportunity for our Company and one of our objectives is to be able to develop a new resource area near the Grey Eagle resource one. These two systems are close to each other and to “Homestake”, our 2019 discovery, where the hole HS-19-007 intercepted 6.1 meters of 22.88 g/t gold. Within these three zones, we believe GRC has identified a significant area for gold discovery and resource development, which will be one of our focuses for our drilling programs. These are the highlights of the 9 holes completed at “White Point” in 2021:
- 13.7 meters @ 0.70 gold equivalent in hole WP-21-002
- 19.9 meters @ 0.56 gold equivalent and
7.6 meters @ 0.61 gold equivalent in hole WP-21-003
- 36.6 meters @ 0.82 gold equivalent in hole WP-21-005
- 15.3 meters @ 1.40 gold equivalent in hole WP-21-006”.
Gold equivalent based on US$1,800/oz gold and US$25/oz silver. For further information on the above the results, please refer to Company’s news releases dated January 7, 2020, and December 17, 2021.
“White Point” is located in the northwest portion of the property, 400 meters west of the existing Grey Eagle resource. The White Point target is a 200 meters wide zone of sheeted veins that is exposed for 300 meters along its north-south trend. Drilling has traced gold mineralization for 250 meters along the north-south strike and remains open to the north and to the south where gold has been traced under post mineral cover in holes WP-21-003 and WP-21-004. This setting is similar to the one at Grey Eagle where most of the resource is located under post mineral cover.
The 2022 drill program will look to develop an initial resource at White Point by drilling for extensions to the north and south, as well as testing for potential parallel systems, as the historical workings are scattered over 500 meters to the north.
