(TSX: GRC, OTCQB: GRCAF) (the “Company” or “GRC”), is pleased to present detailed information about its 2022 drilling plans at the “Charlie Ross” target, one of the three 2021 significant discoveries within the large 8000 ha Gold Springs Project located in USA (Nevada-Utah).
Antonio Canton, President and CEO, stated “Our team has been developing models of our four new gold discoveries and updating those of our current resources at North and South Jumbo, with all the 2021 drill results. We are excited to share detailed information on the “Charlie Ross” target, an important 2021 discovery in our eyes. With the 2022 drilling program put in place, we believe we will rapidly demonstrate the significant potential of this target, where one of our objectives is to be able to develop a new resource. We will start our 2022 drilling program at the end of March and look forward to aggressively moving the Gold Springs project forward for the benefit of all our shareholders.”
“Charlie Ross” is located 2.6 kilometers west of the North Jumbo resource on the Nevada portion of the project, which features gold intervals over significant widths:
- 1.17 g/t gold equivalent over 45.7 meters, which includes,
2.56 g/t gold equivalent over 15.2 meters in hole CR-21-005
- 1.26 g/t gold equivalent over 15.3 meters, which includes,
2.24 g/t gold equivalent over 9.2 meters in hole CR-21-008
- 2.10 g/t gold equivalent over 16.7 meters and
1.68 g/t gold equivalent over 13.7 meters and
2.32 g/t gold equivalent over 10.7 meters in hole CR-21-017,
- 2.03 g/t gold equivalent over 9.2 meters in hole CR-21-019,

Three gold zones have been identified at “Charlie Ross”: the Western, Central, and Eastern zones. The Company conducted in 2021 the most drilling in the Western zone which is today the best defined of the three zones. Gold mineralization is controlled by north-south trending structural zones, the associated surrounding stockwork veins and brecciation areas. Gold is hosted in veins, stockwork veins and breccias often with grades over 1 g/t gold. The Western zone was traced over 400 meters by the 2021 drilling and remains open to the north and up and down deep. The Central and Eastern zones have seen limited drilling in 2021 and are just beginning to be explored. The Central zone has 100 meters of strike length and the Eastern zone was intersected by three holes in a limited area. All 3 zones show similar characteristics with strong structural components.
The 2022 drilling program at “Charlie Ross” plans to continue following the Western zone along strike and develop strike extensions to the Central and Eastern zones. These areas will be drilled early in the 2022 program which is now scheduled to start the last week of March 2022.
