GoGold Provides COVID-19 Update
Halifax, NS – GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (OTCQX: GLGDF) (“GoGold”, “the Company”) announces that the Mexican federal government has mandated all non-essential businesses temporarily suspend activities until April 30, 2020 due to COVID-19. As Parral is a heap leach operation, essential processes including operation of pumps to maintain solution balance will continue, while non-essential services will be temporarily suspended in line with the government mandate. At the current time, management expects minimal impact on production for the quarter ending June 30.
At the Los Ricos project, drilling will be suspended for 30 days to ensure the safety of the Company’s employees and contractors in compliance with the government’s mandate. This will have a limited impact on the Company’s exploration project, as there are 40 completed drill holes which are in the assaying process, and GoGold is nearing data cut-off for the initial resource at the Los Ricos South Project. GoGold’s administrative and technical teams will continue to work remotely from home, as they progress on internal resource modelling and work towards an external third-party resource.
“While we have not experienced a known or suspected case of COVID-19 in the Company, safety and the health of our employees, contractors, and communities where we are operating is our top priority in this unprecedented time. Parral’s operation, being a heap leach, makes it essential to continue the circulation of leaching solution which will continue to produce silver and gold during this period. All essential employees for this operation will follow safety protocols and precautionary measures, while exploration activity at Los Ricos will be temporarily suspended allowing our team to focus remotely on a resource model,” said Brad Langille, President and CEO.
