Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX: GRC, OTCQB: GRCAF) (the “Company” or “GRC”), has received drill results from the first 6 holes of the 2022 drilling program around the South Jumbo resource of its large Gold Springs project located in USA, on the border of Nevada and Utah, one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world.
- 1.08 g/t gold equivalent over 15.3 meters and
0.74 g/t gold equivalent over 15.3 meters in hole E-22-001
- 1.46 g/t gold equivalent over 9.2 meters and
0.95 g/t gold equivalent over 9.2 meters in hole E-22-002
- 1.36 g/t gold equivalent over 27.4 meters and
1.38 g/t gold equivalent over 6.1 meters in hole E-22-003
- 0.68 g/t gold equivalent over 12.6 meters and
0.74 g/t gold equivalent over 13.7 meters in hole E-22-004
Gold equivalent based on US$1,800/oz gold and US$25/oz silver.
Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration, stated “We are excited about the start of our 2022 drilling program at South Jumbo. These initial results confirm the extension and the modeling of our South Jumbo resource, as all six holes encountered gold mineralization. The remaining samples from the first 14 holes are now in the laboratory and we should see a steady flow of information over the coming weeks. The second RC drill will be deployed next week at North Jumbo, followed by the Horseshoe Extension, Homestake, and White Point targets. The diamond core drill will also be deployed in the first week of June to test deeper portions and collect material for metallurgical test work from the North and South Jumbo, Grey Eagle, Charlie Ross, and the White Point existing resources”.
GRC has now completed 14 holes for a total of 2,828 meters of the planned 20,100 meters RC drilling program. Assays have been received for the first 6 holes from the South Jumbo resource area, which were designed to expand the resource at depth and along strike. An additional 3 holes will be completed at South Jumbo before the drill moves to the Snow target for 2 holes, followed by the Charlie Ross target which was a new discovery in 2021.
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. AuEq g/t or gold equivalent g/t is based on $1,800/oz gold and $25/oz silver.

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.
