GRC Expands Gold Mineralization at South Jumbo Resource
Vancouver, BC — Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX: GRC - OTCQB: GRCAF) (the “Company” or “GRC”), has received drill results from 8 additional holes of its 2022 drilling program around the South Jumbo Resource at its large Gold Springs project located in USA, on the border of Nevada and Utah.
- 0.59 g/t gold equivalent over 18.3 meters and
0.61 g/t gold equivalent over 9.1 meters in hole E-22-007
- 1.37 g/t gold equivalent over 4.6 meters in hole E-22-009
- 0.72 g/t gold equivalent over 27.4 meters including
2.47 g/t gold equivalent over 4.6 meters and
0.66 g/t gold equivalent over 6.1 meters and
0.59 g/t gold equivalent over 18.3 meters in hole E-22-012
- 0.79 g/t gold equivalent over 19.9 meters in hole E-22-014.
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:
“These new results continue to demonstrate extensions of the South Jumbo gold mineralization as these holes were drilled with the objectives to:
- Extend gold values at depth within the northern resource block (E-22-012).
- Extend gold values in the gap zone between the two resource blocks (E-22-007, E-22-008, E-22-009, E-22-0013).
- Test for shallow gold extensions to the south (E-22-014).
The results from the first 14 holes at South Jumbo clearly support our GRC resource model as we are demonstrating that gold mineralization does expand into areas predicted by our 2021 updated model. Once we receive the gold assays for the 6 remaining holes at South Jumbo, we will update our resource model to define where we will plan our drill holes to continue expanding our South Jumbo resource”
News from GRC 2022 ongoing drilling program:
The 2022 drilling program is progressing well as the Company completed 2 first holes in the untested Snow target, 13 new holes around the North Jumbo resource and 9 holes looking to expand the Charlie Ross resource discovered by the 2021 drilling program.
The diamond Core Drill is now onsite, and the Company has just completed the first hole on the Tremor target discovered in 2021 and now part of the North Jumbo resource.
The CSAMT ground based geophysical survey is well underway to cover most of the 33 identified targets and will help direct future drilling and identify potential new areas of gold mineralization under shallow post-mineral materials.
GRC has now completed 44 holes for a total of 9,317 meters of the planned 20,100 meters RC drilling program. Assays have been received for the first 14 holes, all from the South Jumbo resource area.
The Gold Springs project encompasses nearly 8,000 ha within the Great Basin of Nevada and Utah. Thus far 6 resources have been developed on outcropping low sulfidation epithermal gold systems which are mostly oxidized, and 33 targets have been already identified on approximately 40% of the property.
The 2022 drilling program was designed to expand the 6 existing resources and to test several new targets including the Snow, Midnight, and the Horseshoe Extension. During the 2021 drill campaign GRC made 3 new discoveries, all of which became new resources or merged with existing ones as reported in the last resource update issued July 11, 2022 (please see the Company’s news release dated July 15, 2022).
Summary of drill intercepts:
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 for this news release within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) and has reviewed and validated that the information contained in the release is accurate.
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.
