Widths of Mineralized System Expanded Significantly
Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSX-V: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FWB: 8X00) is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada.
1.84 g/t Au over 14.95m from 483.05m
President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “These results once again support our thesis that the size and scale of the Moss Lake Gold Project will be large enough to support a material and meaningful update to the mineral resource estimate in April 2023, followed by a preliminary economic assessment on the updated resource. We continue to find additions to the resource on step out holes laterally and along strike from the historic resource profile, and we look to continue to explore the impact of these additions to the resource model, as well as guiding us in future drill targets.”
Figure 1 shows the better intercepts in plain view and Figure 2 is a typical section through hole MMD-22-063. Table 1 shows the significant intercepts. Table 2 shows the drill hole locations.

Results have been received for MMD-22-063, which was the final hole from the first pass drill pattern at the Southwest Zone. The hole infills two previous holes and has shown that there is continuity to the high-grade core of the zone. In addition to the high-grade lenses highlighted above, the hole also intersected multiple lenses of lower grade mineralization throughout the hole including 0.58 g/t Au over 23.2m from 27.9m, 0.81 g/t Au over 20.6m from 355m, and 0.55 g/t Au over 7.95m from 417.05m. These confirm the increased tonnage potential in the Southwest Zone with mineralization above the low-grade cutoff of 0.40 g/t Au used for the current mineral resource estimate over a zone that is almost 300 meters wide.
A second pass drill pattern over the Southwest zone was completed in January, infilling the newly discovered high-grade shears and exploring for additional shears.
Results have also been received for thirteen holes that have explored the edges of the Main Zone on its northern and southern flanks. Six holes targeted the northern side of the shear system, and seven holes targeted the southern side. These holes intersected high-grade shears over a zone that is 200 meters wider than previously understood, making the main zone over 550 meters wide at its widest point.
As with the center of the Main Zone, these shears lie within broad zones of low-grade mineralization within the altered diorite intrusion host. Examples include 0.84 g/t Au over 37m from 608m in MQD-22-058; 0.33 g/t Au over 35.65m from 231.35m, 0.42 g/t Au over 34m from 273m and 0.86 g/t Au over 126m from 467m in MMD-22-059; 0.58 g/t Au over 75m from 543.5m in MMD-22-060; 0.91 g/t Au over 33m from 257m in MMD-22-088; 0.58 g/t Au over 75m from 422m in MMD-22-089; 0.39 g/t Au over 40.5m from 453.8m in MQD-22-091; and 0.72 g/t Au over 15m from 207 in MMD-22-095.
The shears in the north and south were sparsely drilled by historical drill holes and represent opportunity to potentially expand the mineral resource and to properly understand the mineralizing system.
A detailed review of current and previous high-grade intercepts has identified various gold, silver, and bismuth bearing tellurides across all three zones of the Moss Lake Gold Project deposit. The tellurides have been located within pyrite±-chalcopyrite bearing quartz-chlorite-carbonate veins and sulphide-rich hydrothermal breccias previously identified in the vein paragenesis to be emplaced near the end of deformational history. Identifying and outlining the late structural events will allow for enhanced targeting of the high-grade portions of Moss Lake Gold Project and will assist in refining generative targets by focusing on preferred horizons for these structures to occur.
Figure 3: Tellurides identified at 234.1m of MQD-21-009 within a py+cpy bearing undulating qt+ch±cb shear vein. The sample yielded 39.7g/t Au, 73.7g/t Ag, 63.5g/t Te over 0.9m.
Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said “The high-grade drill results in the Southwest Zone provide confidence that this area has significant resource potential. The results along the northern and southern flanks of the Main Zone also represent a significant expansion to the width of the mineralized zone, which should assist our goal of potentially expanding the mineral resource and improving its quality in early Q2.”
Table 1: Significant downhole gold intercepts
Intersections calculated above at 0.3 g/t Au cut off with a top cut of 30 g/t Au and a maximum internal waste interval of 10 metres. Shaded intervals are intersections calculated above a 1.0 g/t Au cut off. Intervals in bold are those with a grade thickness factor exceeding 20 gram x metres / tonne gold. True widths are approximate and assume a subvertical body.

All samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Thunder Bay for preparation and analysis was performed in the ALS Vancouver analytical facility. ALS is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for the Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories and CAN-P-4E ISO/IEC 17025. Samples were analyzed for gold via fire assay with an AA finish (“Au-AA23”) and 48 pathfinder elements via ICP-MS after four-acid digestion (“ME-MS61”). Samples that assayed over 10 ppm Au were re-run via fire assay with a gravimetric finish (“Au-GRA21”).
In addition to ALS quality assurance / quality control protocols, Goldshore has implemented a quality control program for all samples collected through the drilling program. The quality control program was designed by a qualified and independent third party, with a focus on the quality of analytical results for gold. Analytical results are received, imported to our secure on-line database and evaluated to meet our established guidelines to ensure that all sample batches pass industry best practice for analytical quality control. Certified reference materials are considered acceptable if values returned are within three standard deviations of the certified value reported by the manufacture of the material. In addition to the certified reference material, certified blank material is included in the sample stream to monitor contamination during sample preparation. Blank material results are assessed based on the returned gold result being less than ten times the quoted lower detection limit of the analytical method. The results of the on-going analytical quality control program are evaluated and reported to Goldshore by Orix Geoscience Inc.
Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns 100% of the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome is currently a large shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 22% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.
