Vancouver, BC. - Gold Springs Resource Corp. (the “Company” or “GRC”) (TSX: GRC - OTCQB: GRCAF) reports positive assay results from the South Jumbo Resource area of its Gold Springs project located in the USA, on the border of Nevada and Utah.
- 1.93 g/t gold equivalent over 1.5 meters and
0.58 g/t gold equivalent over 7.6 meters and
1.24 g/t gold equivalent over 1.6 meters in hole E-22-023
- 1.10 g/t gold equivalent over 6.1 meters and.
0.96 g/t gold equivalent over 3.0 meters and
0.57 g/t gold equivalent over 6.1 meters in hole E-22-022
- 1.30 g/t gold equivalent over 1.5 meters in hole E-22-024
Gold equivalent based on US$1,800/oz gold, US$25/oz silver and 50% for silver recovery.
Antonio Canton, President, and CEO, stated:
“We are pleased by these new positive results, which extend the gold mineralization encountered in hole E-22-020 (1.05 g/t AuEq over 4.6 meters and 0.74 g/t AuEq over 26 meters) and thus expand our South Jumbo deposit 200 meters further north where it remains open (see GRC’s press release dated August 12, 2022).
Add this 200 meters northward expansion of the Jumbo South deposit to the 425 meters southward expansion of the Jumbo North deposit in a higher-grade structural block, and we are convinced of the significant potential of the 5-kilometer-long Jumbo Trend to host a large gold deposit (see GRC press release dated October 16, 2023).
The South Jumbo and the North Jumbo resources, with 524,000 ounces of gold and 8,811,000 ounces of silver, already are the two largest of our six existing M&I resources according to our latest resource estimate based on drilling up to 2021 and without results from 2022-2023 (see detailed table below and GRC’s press release dated June 13, 2022, concerning our last mineral resource estimate).
It’s also worth bearing in mind, when analyzing Gold Springs’ true potential, that the 5+ km Jumbo Trend covers less than 5% of our nearly 8000 ha large gold project.”
The South Jumbo resource extends over 1,000 meters along strike based on drilling up to 2021 and is located at the southern end of the +5 kilometer-long Jumbo Trend which is defined by a very strong and well-developed CSAMT high resistivity anomaly.
The drill holes E-22-020 through E-22-024 extend this gold-bearing system 200 meters to the north and include the higher-grade material of 1.05 g/t gold equivalent over 4.6 meters and 0.74 g/t gold equivalent over 26 meters in hole E-22-020 and 1.1 g/t gold equivalent over 6.1 meters found in hole E-22-022.
Future drilling will focus on continuing to expand the gold mineralization to the north.
Summary of drill intercepts
True thickness is estimated to be 60-100% of reported length. Gold equivalent based on US$1,800/oz gold, US$25/oz silver, and 50% for silver recovery.

Total Measured & Indicated
Randall Moore, VP of 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. 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.
