GoGold Intersects 33.5m at 2.67 g/t Gold Equivalent Including 9.5m at 5.47 g/t Gold Equivalent
Halifax, NS – GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (OTCQX: GLGDF) (“GoGold”, “the Company”) is pleased to release the assay results from 8 new diamond drill holes at the Los Ricos project, including 4 holes in the San Juan area, 2 holes in the Main area, and 2 holes along the South edge of the Main area.
Hole LRGG-19-073, drilled on Section 750N to test the San Juan zone, intersected 33.5m of quartz vein from 59.8 to 96.5m, averaging 2.67 g/t gold equivalent or 200.4 g/t silver equivalent, made up of 1.12 g/t gold and 116.7 g/t silver, including 9.5m of 5.47 g/t gold equivalent. Historical workings of 3.3m were encountered in this hole.
Hole LRGG-19-076 was drilled on Section 750N approximately 50m down dip of hole LRGG-19-073 and intersected 38.5m of quartz vein from 106.5 to 145.0m averaging 2.38 g/t gold equivalent or 178.2 g/t silver equivalent, including 5.8m of 5.17 g/t gold equivalent. No historical workings were encountered in the hole.
Hole LRGG-19-077 was drilled on Section 750N approximately 40m down dip of hole LRGG-19-076 and intersected 26.0m of quartz vein from 112.5 to 138.5m averaging 2.29 g/t gold equivalent or 171.7 g/t silver equivalent, including 4.3m of 7.49 g/t gold equivalent. No historical workings were encountered in the hole.
“Hole 77 is the deepest intersection on the San Juan zone that we have drilled to date. We’re seeing wide zones of mineralization carrying strong gold and silver grade in all three of the new holes and I believe we are starting to outline a new ore shoot to the north of the historical Los Ricos mine,” said Brad Langille, President and CEO.
Hole LRGG-19-065 was drilled in the Main area and intersected 13.1m of quartz vein from 276 to 291m, averaging 1.35 g/t gold equivalent or 101.1 g/t silver equivalent, made up of 0.23 g/t gold and 83.9 g/t silver, including 5.4m of 2.57 g/t gold equivalent. Historical workings of 1.9m were encountered.
Detailed intersections are listed in Table 1, and the hole locations are shown in Table 2.

To date, GoGold has completed 90 diamond drill holes totaling 15,140m of HQ size diamond drill core since starting the Los Ricos drilling program in March 2019. The Phase II drilling program has started and a fourth drill machine was added to the program.
The core drilling campaign is focused on defining the mineralized halo around the historical high-grade ore shoots as defined by the underground workings and the 65 historical RC drill holes on the property. The program has now been expanded for additional testing along 3.2 km of the Los Ricos mineralized zone.
The diamond drill core (HQ size) is geologically logged, photographed and marked for sampling. When the sample lengths are determined, the full core is sawn with a diamond blade core saw with one half of the core being bagged and tagged for assay. The remaining half portion is returned to the core trays for storage and/or for metallurgical test work.
The sealed and tagged sample bags are transported to the ActLabs facility in Zacatecas, Mexico. ActLabs crushes the samples and prepares 200-300 gram pulp samples with ninety percent passing Tyler 150 mesh (106μm). The pulps are assayed for gold using a 50-gram charge by fire assay (Code 1A2-50) and over limits greater than 10 grams per tonne are re-assayed using a gravimetric finish (Code 1A3-50). Silver and multi-element analysis is completed using total digestion (Code 1F2 Total Digestion ICP). Over limits greater than 100 grams per tonne silver are re-assayed using a gravimetric finish (Code 8-Ag FA-GRAV Ag).
Quality Assurance / Quality Control and Data Verification
Quality assurance and quality control ("QA/QC") procedures monitor the chain-of-custody of the samples and includes the systematic insertion and monitoring of appropriate reference materials (certified standards, blanks and duplicates) into the sample strings. The results of the assaying of the QA/QC material included in each batch are tracked to ensure the integrity of the assay data. All results stated in this announcement have passed GoGold’s QA/QC protocols.
