GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (OTCQX: GLGDF) is pleased to release additional assay results from the Company’s La Trini deposit on the Los Ricos North project, including 5.6m of 1,070 g/t silver equivalent from hole LRGT-20-33.
Hole LRGT-20-033 was drilled at the La Trini deposit and intersected a silicified and altered quartz rhyolite unit from 13.9 to 35.7m for 21.8m of 335 g/t AgEq, consisting of 130 g/t silver and 2.73 g/t gold. The intersect included 5.6m of 1,070g/t AgEq, which was made up of 365 g/t silver and 9.40 g/t gold, which began at a depth of 18.4m.
“Our exploration program at the La Trini target in Los Ricos North is continuing to provide strong results and a better understanding of what controls high grade mineralization. Our drilling program in Los Ricos North is rapidly expanding from La Trini towards Salomon-Favor with a total of 6 drill rigs currently and a plan to increase to 8 to 10 rigs over the next 60 days,” said Brad Langille, President and CEO.
Hole LRGT-20-011 intersected 22.5m of 261 g/t AgEq from 12.2m to 34.7m, consisting of 158 g/t silver and 1.37 g/t gold, which included a higher grade core of 17.2m of 330 g/t AgEq.
Hole LRGT-20-013 intersected mineralization from 36.3 to 80.8m, for 44.5m of 126 g/t AgEq which was made up of 63 g/t silver and 0.84 g/t gold. The intersect included 12.0m of 368 g/t AgEq, made up of 163 g/t silver and 2.73 g/t gold.
Currently the Company has 6 drill rigs operating at Los Ricos North, with 3 operating at the La Trini target, and 3 drilling at the Salomon-Favor target. Detailed intersections are listed in Table 1 and the hole locations are shown in Table 2.

|2.||AuEq and AqEq converted using a silver to gold ratio of 75:1|
|3.||Holes LRGT-20-028 to LRGT-20-031 assays are outstanding and will be released at a later date|
|4.||Holes LRGT-20-017 to LRGT-20-023 are excluded from above, as they were drilled to test a lower grade area to the east of the main Trini zone. Mineralization was not significant, averaging 9.8m of 29.10 g/t AgEq at approximate depth of 40m. Results are available in the drilling summary at gogoldresources.com.|

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.
The Los Ricos North Project was launched in March 2020 and includes drilling at the Salomon-Favor, La Trini, and Mololoa targets.
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 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.
Mr. David Duncan, P. Geo. is the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and is responsible for the technical information of this release.
