G2 Goldfields Inc. (TSX-V: GTWO) (OTCQX: GUYGF) continues to intersect high grade gold mineralisation across multiple diamond drill holes at the 19,200-acre OKO project, Guyana. Today’s release further establishes the OKO project as one of the most exciting new discoveries in the Americas. G2 is led by an experienced management team which is directly responsible for the discovery of more than seven million ounces of gold in the Guiana Shield, one of the world’s most prolific greenstone belts (RPA, 43-101, Technical Report on the Aurora Gold Mine, March 31, 2020).
G2 mobilized to the property this week and currently has two drilling operations 24/7 at the OKO Main Zone. The Company has completed 106 drill holes to date, totalling 26,247 meters. The OMZ has been defined to vertical depths of approximately 400 metres over a strike length of 900 metres and remains open in all directions. Coarse visible gold is common at the OMZ, with 67 holes out of 106 holes containing VG.
The Company is releasing results from ten drill holes in this release, including the following:
The intercepts reported are down-hole widths. True widths for holes 86 to 95 vary between 65% to 86% of the reported down-hole widths. Weighted average grades are calculated based on un-capped gold assays, as insufficient drilling has been completed to determine capping limits for gold assays.
A complete list of assays is available at the following link https://g2goldfields.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/ASSAYS10JAN22.pdf. In light of these significant results, the Company has expanded its “Top 30” to the “Top 35” which we illustrated in the table within the plan view of drilling below, and at the following link https://g2goldfields.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/G2_OkoHighlights_Jan2021_FIN-scaled.jpg.
Discussion of Significant Results
3.1m @ 10.8 g/t Au
This hole tested the up-plunge mineralisation in the highest-grade shoot discovered to date in Shear 3 which now has multiple pierce points that all exceed 10 g/t Au.
This intercept further defined the Shear 3 high grade zone referred to above.
This intercept confirms the up-dip extension to mineralization in OKD-77 which returned 335.4 g/t Au over 1.9 metres within Shear 4.
4.5m @ 31.5 g/t Au
This hole confirmed the down plunge continuity of the high-grade in Shear 4 defined by holes OKD-77, 85 (6.6 m @ 9.1 g/t Au), and 89.
4.1m @8.6 g/t Au
This is the northern-most drill hole to date in Shear 3 that confirms the discovery of a new high-grade shoot at the northern end of the shear.
16m @ 8.4 g/t Au
This intercept expands the mineralisation in the previously reported OKD-72 (3.2m @ 10 g/t Au) a further 86m down plunge.
Dan Noone, CEO, states, “The ongoing expansion of high grade, combined with excellent mineralisation leachability, illustrates the potential to further develop the OMZ into a high margin, low impact operation with a comparatively small footprint.”
Boaz Wade, V.P. Exploration, further comments, “These drilling results confirm the expansion of multiple mineralized zones in Shears 3 to 5 as we continue to grow the Oko Gold System.”
Drill core is logged and sampled in a secure core storage facility located on the OKO project site, Guyana. Core samples from the program are cut in half, using a diamond cutting saw, and are sent to MSALABS Guyana, in Georgetown, Guyana, which is an accredited mineral analysis laboratory, for analysis. Samples from sections of core with obvious gold mineralization are analysed for total gold using an industry-standard 500g metallic screen fire assay (MSALABS method MSC 550). All other samples are analysed for gold using standard Fire Assay-AA with atomic absorption finish (MSALABS method; FAS-121). Samples returning over 10.0 g/t gold are analysed utilizing standard fire assay gravimetric methods (MSALABS method; FAS-425). Certified gold reference standards, blanks, and field duplicates are routinely inserted into the sample stream, as part of G2 Goldfield’s quality control/quality assurance program (QAQC). No QA/QC issues were noted with the results reported herein.
About G2 Goldfields Inc.
The G2 Goldfields team is comprised of professionals who have been involved in the discovery of more than 7 million ounces of gold in Guyana and the financing and development of Guyana’s largest gold mine (RPA, 43-101, Technical Report on the Aurora Gold Mine, March 31, 2020). The Oko Main Zone discovery is the initial fruit of the application of this extensive in-country experience. Ongoing exploration within the 17km long Aremu – Oko trend has generated multiple drill targets, similar in geological setting and scale to Oko Main. The Aremu – Oko district has been a prolific alluvial goldfield since the rush of the 1870’s. Modern exploration by the G2 Goldfields team has begun and continues to reveal the exceptional potential of this district.
