Vancouver, BC — Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX: GRC - OTCQB: GRCAF) (the “Company” or “GRC”), has received assays from the first 2022 drill holes at North Jumbo confirming the possibility for a significant southward extension of the North Jumbo Resource within the Gold Springs project located in USA, on the border of Nevada and Utah.
- 1.20 g/t gold equivalent over 9.1 meters and
0.67 g/t gold equivalent over 36.6 meters and
1.18 g/t gold equivalent over 6.1 meters in hole J-22-001
- 0.57 g/t gold equivalent over 41.2 meters and
1.88 g/t gold equivalent over 6.1 meters in hole J-22-004
- 1.87 g/t gold equivalent over 29.0 meters including
3.73 g/t gold equivalent over 9.2 meters in hole J-22-005
- 0.94 g/t gold equivalent over 9.2 meters in hole J-22-006
- 0.56 g/t gold equivalent over 7.7 meters and
1.14 g/t gold equivalent over 3.1 meters in hole J-22-007
- 0.52 g/t gold equivalent over 19.8 meters and
1.31 g/t gold equivalent over 7.6 meters in hole J-22-008
Gold equivalent based on US$1,800/oz gold, US$25/oz silver and 50% for silver recovery.
Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration, stated: “We are very excited about the results of the first holes completed in 2022 at North Jumbo as they confirm:
- The discovery of a new gold mineralization area extending 200 meters south of our North Jumbo Resource (holes J-22-004 & J-22-005) in a new structural block that was never drilled before.
- The extension of the North Jumbo Resource in a parallel western mineral block (J-22-001, J-22-006, and J-22-007).
- The extension of gold mineralization in the southern portion of the North Jumbo Resource as our model predicted (Hole J-22-008).
All these holes have thick sections of gold mineralization and higher-grade intervals than our existing resource.
The 2022 drill program is advancing as we hoped, and our resource models are being confirmed and refined by all these positive drill results:
- At South Jumbo, we have identified a significant extension of that system 50 meters to the north with hole E-22-020 returning 0.74 g/t gold equivalent over 26.0 meters (see our press release August 12, 2022). We have now completed two more holes and a third one is in progress with the objective of extending the resource 200 meters to the north.
- At North Jumbo, we drilled into a new structural block extending gold mineralization 200 meters south of the North Jumbo Resource with hole J-22-005 returning 1.87 g/t gold equivalent over 29 meters including 3.73 g/t over 9.2 meters, and with hole J-22-004 returning 0.57 g/t gold equivalent over 41.2 meters and 1.88 g/t over 6.1 meters.
Within the 5 km Jumbo Trend, we are currently constructing new drill pads to follow up these positive results, with the ambition of continuing to extend the gold mineralization from the North Jumbo Resource (1.8 km long) to the south and the South Jumbo Resource (1.3 km long) to the north.”

2022 Drilling Program
The Company has now completed 56 holes totaling 11,990 meters of the planned 21,000-meter program. Drilling has targeted the North and South Jumbo resources, the Charlie Ross target and the Snow target, which saw its first ever drilling. Drills will soon be moving to the Red Light target followed by the Horseshoe Extension.
Summary of drill intercepts
True thickness is estimated to be 60-100% 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 for this news release within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”). He has approved the scientific or technical information in this release and has verified the data disclosed in this release 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 Reno, Nevada by ALS 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 5 g/t re-assayed using a 30-gram sample and a gravity finish. Silver is analyzed by a four-acid leach ICP method.
