Golden Goliath Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: GNG) (OTC Pink: GGTHF) (FSE: GGZ) is very pleased to announce that a first tranche of $2.22 Million of the recently announced private placement, which was filed with the TSX on July 16, has now received the necessary regulatory approvals. The first Tranche has now closed. The required hold period for those shares and warrants is Nov 28, 2020. Five “Finders” received a total of $46,700.00 in Finders Fees for the entirety of this private placement.
The bulk of these funds will be used for the Company’s first drill program on the Kwai property in the Red Lake mining district. Currently on the Kwai property the IP data collection is almost finished and the data is being reviewed by the Company’s geophysicist RS Middleton P Eng. Mr Middleton is also correlating the locations of the recently reported gold grains in basal till with the IP features. The till sampling was very successful. Ongoing IP (induced polarization) surveys have identified strong to moderate anomalies in a number of locations along the Pakwash fault trend and adjoining shear zones which are up ice from the sites where the gold grains were located.

The gold grain count in the till sampling program varied from one (1) gold grain up to 42 gold grains per 10 kilogram sample for a total of 228 gold grains.
The gold grains were extracted, and their dimensions measured and classified as “Pristine”, “Modified”, or “Reshaped” to estimate the distance the gold grains were glacially transported from their potential bedrock source.
A total of 62 gold grains (17 samples) have been classified as Pristine meaning that the location of the till samples where these gold grains have been recovered are most likely located less than 500 meters from the source of the till sample. Further, 16 gold grains have been classified as Modified, indicating that the gold grain is slightly reshaped, and that they could be within 1,000 meters of their original source. And the remaining 150 gold grains have been classified as Reshaped meaning they are most likely to be more than 1,000 meters from the source of the gold sample. It should be noted that a full 37% of the gold grains detected were of the pristine variety indicating a nearby source for the gold mineralization.

A second, more inclusive, drilling permit has been applied for and is expected before the end of August. One drill bid has been received and reviewed and a second bid is pending.
This news release has been reviewed by Robert S. Middleton P.Eng who is acting as QP for this phase of the exploration under the NI43-101 requirements.
