GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (OTCQX: GLGDF) is pleased to release the results of drilling at La Trini in Los Ricos North. To date, the Company has released the drill results of 96 holes at La Trini.
Drill hole LRGT-20-096 intercepted 11.4m of 101 g/t silver equivalent consisting of 97 g/t silver and 0.05 g/t gold, from 36.9 to 38.3m. This included 0.8m of 1,233 g/t AgEq, consisting of 1,214 g/t silver and 0.25 g/t gold.
“With the release of 122 drill holes and 8 drill rigs continually operating in Los Ricos North, our understanding of this truly large mineralized system is becoming clearer. We believe La Trini, El Favor, El Orito, and potentially a new area – Casados – will form part of an upcoming Los Ricos North initial resource to be released later this year,” said Brad Langille, President and CEO. “Our 100,000m drill program should provide a continuous flow of drill results as we work towards defining resources, along with more exciting discoveries to be made in the Los Ricos district.”
Drill hole LRGT-20-094 intersected 8.5m of 203 g/t AgEq, consisting of 197 g/t silver and 0.08 g/t gold. The intersection was near surface, beginning at 44.8m. This hole also included 3.2m of 512 g/t AgEq, which consisted of 506 g/t silver and 0.08 g/t gold. Hole LRGT-20-094 is located on the last drill section at the northwest corner of the deposit and the mineralization remains open along strike and at depth.
Drill hole LRGT-20-090 intercepted 23.5m of 125 g/t AgEq, consisting of 64 g/t silver and 0.81 g/t gold, from 145.3 to 171.7m. This included 2.8m of 530 g/t AgEq, consisting of 283 g/t silver and 3.30 g/t gold. The hole also passed through a void of 3.0m where the vein was historically mined out through underground workings.
Detailed intersections are listed in Table 1 with drill hole locations included in Table 2. A plan view of La Trini is included as Figure 1. Figure 2 shows a wider plan view of a portion of Los Ricos North including the El Favor, El Orito, La Trini, Casados and Mololoa targets.

Los Ricos District Exploration Projects
The Company’s two exploration projects at its Los Ricos property are in Jalisco state, Mexico. The Los Ricos South Project began in March 2019 and includes the ‘Main’ area, which is focused on drilling around a number of historical mines including El Abra, El Troce, San Juan, and Rascadero, as well as the Cerro Colorado, Las Lamas and East Vein targets. An initial resource on the Los Ricos South project was announced on July 29, 2020 and indicated a Measured & Indicated Mineral Resource of 63.7 million ounces AgEq grading 199 g/t AgEq contained in 10.0 million tonnes, and an Inferred Resource of 19.9 million ounces AgEq grading 190 g/t AgEq contained in 3.3 million tonnes. An initial PEA on the project was announced on January 20, 2021 indicating an NPV5% of US$295M.
The Los Ricos North Project was launched in March 2020 and includes drilling at the El Favor, La Trini, and El Orito targets. During 2020, GoGold’s exploration team identified over 100 targets on the Los Ricos North properties, demonstrating the significant exploration potential. The Company plans to drill 10 of these targets as part of its 2021 drilling program which is planned to exceed 100,000 metres of drilling and will be one of the largest in Mexico.
Procedure, Quality Assurance / Quality Control and Data Verification
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 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.
