Gold Standard Ventures Corp. (TSX:GSV) (NYSE AMERICAN:GSV) today announced results from nine Dark Star deposit infill holes and five exploration drill holes on its 100%-owned/controlled Railroad Gold Project in Nevada’s Carlin Trend. Infill hole DS17-35 intersected 237.8m of 2.96 g Au/t, including 93.0m of 5.06 g Au/t, and infill hole DS17-37 intersected 141.8m of 3.32 g Au/t, including 25.9m of 8.63 g Au/t. These are the thickest and highest-grade intercepts drilled to date at the Dark Star deposit, confirming once again the outstanding potential of this thick, laterally-continuous zone of near-surface oxide mineralization.
Jonathan Awde, CEO and Director of Gold Standard commented: “This drilling is designed to convert current inferred resources to measured and indicated resources in support of a future prefeasibility study. Nonetheless, we also look at these holes as a second wave of exploration drilling as we discover structural features that appear to drive exceptional grades and thicknesses in certain locations. Some of these results are well in excess of what was predicted in the current resource model and the data could help us find other such occurrences. We are especially encouraged by the additions we are making to the depth dimension of the Dark Star deposit which we had not expected.”
Dark Star drill results are as follows:
|Drill Hole||Method||Azimuth||Incl.||TD (m)||Intercept (m)||Thickness (m)||Grade (g Au/t)|
|DS17-31||RC||090||-45||603.7||No assays >0.20 g Au/t|
|DS17-33||RC||-90||946.6||No assays >0.20 g Au/t|
|DS17-38||RC||270||-75||243.9||No assays >0.20 g Au/t|
|DS17-39||RC||090||-60||288.1||No assays >0.20 g Au/t|
|DS17-42||RC||090||-60||407.0||No assays >0.20 g Au/t|
** Gold intervals reported in this table were calculated using a 0.20 g Au/t cutoff. Weighted averaging has been used to calculate all reported intervals. True widths are estimated at 70-90% of drilled thicknesses.
Mac Jackson, Gold Standard’s Vice President of Exploration stated: “These are significant, shallow oxide intercepts. Infill drill results continue to beat our resource model, and Dark Star is exceeding expectations. We have intersected a strong structural focus of the Dark Star gold system, and it shows us the potential of the systems we are exploring in the Dark Star and Jasperoid Wash corridors.”
Sampling Methodology, Chain of Custody, Quality Control and Quality Assurance
All sampling was conducted under the supervision of the Company’s project geologists and the chain of custody from the project to the sample preparation facility was continuously monitored. A blank or certified reference material was inserted approximately every tenth sample. The RC samples were delivered to either ALS Minerals or Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories preparation facility in Elko, NV where they were crushed and pulverized. Resulting sample pulps were shipped to either ALS Minerals or Bureau Veritas certified laboratory in Sparks, NV or Vancouver, BC. Pulps were digested and analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption spectroscopy finish on a 30 gram split. All other elements were determined by ICP analysis. Data verification of the analytical results included a statistical analysis of the standards and blanks that must pass certain parameters for acceptance to insure accurate and verifiable results.
Drill hole deviation was measured by gyroscopic down hole surveys that were completed on all holes by International Directional Services or Minex of Elko, NV. Final collar locations are surveyed by differential GPS by Apex Surveying, LLC of Spring Creek, Nevada.

ABOUT GOLD STANDARD VENTURES
Gold Standard is an advanced stage gold exploration company focused on district scale discoveries on its Railroad Gold Project, located within the prolific Carlin Trend. The 2014 Pinion and Dark Star gold deposit acquisitions offer Gold Standard a potential near-term development option and further consolidates the Company’s premier land package on the Carlin Trend. The Pinion deposit has a resource estimate prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 consisting of an Indicated Mineral Resource of 31.61 million tonnes grading 0.62 g/t Au, totaling 630,300 ounces of gold and an Inferred Resource of 61.08 million tonnes grading 0.55 g/t Au, totaling 1,081,300 ounces of gold, using a cut-off grade of 0.14 g/t Au. The Dark Star deposit, 2.1 km to the east of Pinion, has a resource estimate prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 consisting of an Indicated Mineral Resource of 15.38 million tonnes grading 0.54 g/t Au, totaling 265,100 ounces of gold and an Inferred Resource of 17.05 million tonnes grading 1.31 g/t Au, totaling 715,800 ounces of gold, using a cut-off grade of 0.2 g Au/t. The North Bullion deposit, 7 km to the north of Pinion, has a resource estimate prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 consisting of an Indicated Mineral Resource of 2.92 million tonnes grading 0.96 g/t Au, totaling 90,100 ounces of gold and an Inferred Resource of 10.97 million tonnes grading 2.28 g/t Au, totaling 805,800 ounces of gold, using a cut-off grade of 0.14 g Au/t for near surface oxide and 1.25 to 2.25 g Au/t for near surface sulfide and underground sulfide respectively.
