Golden Predator Pours Gold Bar; Intersects 19.3m of 16.15 g/t Gold at 3 Aces Project






Golden Predator Mining Corp. (TSX.V: GPY) (OTCQX: NTGSF) is pleased to announce that it has poured a 744 troy ounce gold doré bar from the #1 table concentrate of its initial 776 metric tonne bulk sample. The Company also announces results of the remaining 10 holes at the Ace of Spades. Subsequent drilling began on the northerly extension of the Hearts zone in August and on the newly discovered gold in quartz veins at the Diamonds zone in September.



Significant results include:


  • Hole 3A17-143: 19.3 m of 16.15* g/t gold, including 4.30 m of 42.37* g/t gold;
  • Hole 3A17-149: 1.50 m of 24.67 g/t gold;
  • Hole 3A17-157: 4.2 m of 20.04 g/t gold;
  • Hole 3A17-147: 2.5 m of 15.51* g/t gold, and 3.5 m of 21.44* g/t gold (Grade Verification)



Intervals reported with an asterisk (*) include results from 50g Fire Assay. These intervals have been submitted for Metallic Screen Analysis, which are pending.

Interim Bulk Sample Results



Final processing of the initial 776 metric tonne bulk sample was completed earlier this year.  In addition to the 744 troy ounce bar just poured, the Company has arranged shipment of 86.4 kg of the #2 concentrate and over 1 metric tonne of the #3 concentrate to Sipi Metals in Chicago, Illinois, USA.   Settlement is due within 60 days at which time a full reconciliation of the metal content of the bulk sample will be released including the original 96.72 troy ounce doré bar poured and sold in 20161. The original doré bar contained 85% fine gold and 8% fine silver. 



Ace of Spades and Jack of Spades Drilling



Results of the remaining 10 holes reported from the recently completed diamond drilling at the Ace and Jack of Spades Zones have continued to confirm structural continuity throughout the zone.  Importantly, hole 3A17-160 which intercepted 35.0 g/t gold from 168.0 to 169.0m, was drilled to offset a previously reported intercept of 22.20 g/t gold across 0.7m in hole 3A17-110 which was 150 m from the main mineralization at the Ace of Spades2.  These two intercepts occur along a newly recognized vein projecting towards the Seven of Spades.  Holes 3A17-143, 3A17-149, 3A17-151, 3A17-153, and 3A17-157 to 3A17-160 complete the in-fill drill program across the Ace/Jack Spades zone.  Hole 3A17-147 was drilled to verify previous Ace Spades RC drill results and to acquire representative core through the mineralized vein. All ten holes encountered significant mineralization.

3 Aces Project, Yukon



The 3 Aces Project consists of 1,734 claims covering 357 km² (35,700 hectares) in southeast Yukon. The Project is located along the all-season Nahanni Range Road that was recently announced as being a part of the $360 million Federally and Yukon funded, Yukon Resource Gateway Project. The 3 Aces Project has numerous mineralized veins discovered through sampling, trenching, roadwork and drilling. These veins occur across many well-mineralized zones and over 762 m (2,500 feet) of elevation change within the 11km2 Central Core area. Within the Central Core area, the Company has built over 18 km of exploration roads since 2016, and plans an additional 3 km for the remainder of the year. 



Previous exploration work by Golden Predator, beginning in 2015, has included mapping, sampling, trenching, metallurgical studies, rotary air blast (RAB) drilling, RC drilling, diamond drilling and bulk sampling, all focused on establishing reproducible gold grades and continuity of the numerous gold in quartz veins discovered on the property.  Extensive drilling in the Spades and Hearts Zones has returned high grade vein intercepts such as 13.1 m of 16.75 g/t gold3 and 13.75 m of 65.31 g/t gold; 16.2 m of 20.5 g/t gold and 8 m of 50.4 g/t gold4. Additional new discoveries have been announced in the Clubs and Diamonds Zones and the Company is currently focused on an aggressive drill program that is well underway, and is expected to continue through November.



The 3 Aces Project is in the traditional territory of the Kaska Nation. Golden Predator operates under an Exploration Agreement with the Kaska Nation, as represented by the Ross River Dena Council and the Liard First Nation, and a Class 4 Mining Land Use Permit issued by the Yukon Government.



Sampling Methodology, Quality Control and Assurance



All analyses for the drill samples from the program were performed by ALS with sample preparation in BC, Kamloops, BC and assaying in Lima, Peru, Vientiane, Laos, or North Vancouver, BC. Drill samples were analyzed using a 50 g fire assay with atomic absorption finish (Au-AA26). If the procedure returned a value of 2.0 g/t gold or greater it is re-run using a 2kg screen metallic gold method (Au-SCR24). Refer to the Company’s news release dated July 10th, 2017 for a complete discussion of sampling methods, quality control and assurance.



The technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mark C. Shutty, CPG, a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and an employee of the Company.
