  • Numerous high-grade intercepts open to depth and along strike
  • New interpretation of mineralization trend – open to depth and along strike
  • Numerous additional undrilled prospects with mineralization at surface


Golden Shield Resources Inc. (CSE: GSRI) is pleased to announce the drill results from the initial hole of a 13-hole, 3,000 metre program at Mazoa Hill, the most advanced of eight prospects at the Company’s flagship, 5,457-hectare, Marudi Mountain gold project located in the Rupununi District of southwestern Guyana,


Golden Shield is currently drilling the ninth hole of the Company’s 3,000 metre, 13-hole Phase 2 drill program at Mazoa Hill. Results of the first hole, MH-22-16, are detailed in Table 1, while results for the other eight holes that have been completed are pending. Drilling of the remaining four holes of the program is progressing and will be finished before the end of this month.

including 152.5 160.5 8 4.95

including 199.6 200.6 1 12.49
and 203.6 205.6 2 14.49
and 222.6 228.6 6 5.98

*Lengths are drill indicated core length, as insufficient drilling has been undertaken to determine true widths at this time.  The highest assay used for weighted average grade is 15.14 g/t gold and top-cutting is not deemed to be necessary. Average widths are calculated using a 0.50 g/t gold cut-off grade with < 4 m of internal dilution below cut-off grade. Sample lengths are 1m unless reduced below this to respect geological contacts.


Golden Shield interprets gold mineralization to occur in a series of en-echelon high grade shoots defined by intense silicification within a broader silicified zone, previously described as quartzite-metachert (QMC). In these areas silica flooding is associated pyrite pyrrhotite and native gold.




Hole MH-22-16 confirms Golden Shield’s reinterpretation of the geology of Mazoa Hill with a lower mineralised limb folding gently to the west. The reinterpretation of the geology shows that mineralization continues into an area that was entirely undrilled by previous operators, as shown in Figures 3 and 4.


Dr. Colin Porter, Vice President, Exploration of Golden Shield commented: “because historical drill holes did not intersect the lower limb extension, previous models assumed the QMC host-rock terminated at depth. However, Golden Shield’s reinterpretation of the Mazoa Hill mineralization has shown that the deposit is open at depth along the lower limb extension. This will allow the Golden Shield team to continue to define a new, updated resource at Mazoa Hill, as we continue to step out laterally, and at depth.”




Following the completion of the Phase 2 drill program Company geologists and field crews will focus on advancement of the existing prospects shown in Figure 1 to drill stage, if merited, and exploration for additional prospects. Once results from Phase 2 drilling are received and additional drilling will be planned.




The Company is also pleased to announce the signing of an agreement with OGIB Corporate Bulletin for a six-month term. Pursuant to the Agreement, OGIB will provide certain marketing, online corporate communications, publishing, writing and investor relations services.
