  • 44 holes out of 124 holes drilled in 2023 on the Golddigger Property contain Visible Gold corresponding to 35% of the holes drilled.
  • All the occurrences of Visible Gold to date have been consistently identified within quartz-breccia and veins in contact with or in close proximity to pyrrhotite, sphalerite and/or galena mineralization.
  • Footprint of the Surebet Zone has been expanded to 1.8 km2, the equivalent of in size to >336 NFL football fields containing multiple stacked bonanza-grade veins within 650 meters from surface and remains wide open with excellent additional discovery potential.
  • This original discovery has only received a total 10 months of boots on the ground in aggregate over the past three years during window of the exploration seasons.
  • A study in collaboration with the Colorado School of Mines has confirmed that the mineralization formed at 4-5 km below the paleo-surface, confirming the excellent additional discovery potential at depth.
  • To put the Colorado School of Mines report into perspective, there is potential for up to 5-10 times the number of stacked veins below the already discovered system corresponding to 10 times the height of the CN Tower from top to bottom.
  • This original discovery has gone from idea to where it is today (>31,600,000 m3 of rock) with only 10 months in aggregate of boots on the ground, clearly demonstrating Surebet is a world class discovery, and we are likely only seeing the tip of the iceberg.
  • Excellent infrastructure 7 km to road, 300-man camp on private property, deep water barge access only 190 km to international container port and rail, 25 km to high tension power.
  • The discovery is modelled to be amiable to underground mining, no detrimental minerals present, environmentally friendly cost-effective mining with 92.2% gold recovery at a 327 micron crush inclusive of 48.8 % being free gold recoverable using simple gravity with no cyanide leaching required.
  • Goliath has partnered with domain experts such as Dr. Quinton Hennigh and Dr. Thomas Monecke from the Colorado School of Mines. The Company has also partnered with consulting firms that include SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc., Archer, Cathro & Associates (1981) Limited, and Oriented Targeting Solutions LLC (OTS), to analyze an extensive array of geological datasets spanning drilling, mapping, drone photogrammetry and remote sensing data to interpret the presence of an Intrusion-Related Gold Deposit.

 

Goliath Resources Limited (TSX-V: GOT) (OTCQB: GOTRF) (FSE: B4IF) is pleased to report assay results for 10 new drill holes from the Surebet Discovery at its 100% controlled Golddigger Property, Golden Triangle, British Columbia. All 10 holes intersected broad intervals of significant quartz-sulphide mineralization and widespread Visible Gold occurrences. The mineralization in hole GD-23-170 consists of 9.40 g/t AuEq (9.33 g/t Au and 3.98 g/t Ag) over 7.00 meters including 12.74 g/t AuEq (12.66 g/t Au and 5.11 g/t Ag) over 5.15 meters and 19.81 g/t AuEq (19.71 g/t Au and 7.28 g/t Ag) over 3.30 meters interpreted to be part of the Bonanza Shear, and 5.01 g/t AuEq (4.83 g/t Au and 6.32 g/t Ag) over 5.00 meters including 6.25 g/t AuEq (6.03 g/t Au and 7.72 g/t Ag) over 4.00 meters interpreted to be part of the Surebet Zone. Assays are pending on 100 holes drilled on the Golddigger property in 2023.

 

Drill hole GD-23-170 collared from Pad 16 intercepted numerous occurrences of Visible Gold, as well as sulphides mineralization in quartz-stockwork and veins corresponding with the Bonanza Shear and Surebet Zone that remain wide open. The Bonanza Shear interval consists of 9.40 g/t AuEq (9.33 g/t Au and 3.98 g/t Ag) over 7.00 meters including 12.74 g/t AuEq (12.66 g/t Au and 5.11 g/t Ag) over 5.15 meters and 19.81 g/t AuEq (19.71 g/t Au and 7.28 g/t Ag) over 3.30 meters. The Surebet Zone interval consists of 5.01 g/t AuEq (4.83 g/t Au and 6.32 g/t Ag) over 5.00 meters including 6.25 g/t AuEq (6.03 g/t Au and 7.72 g/t Ag) over 4.00 meters. For both intervals the mineralization is characterized by stockwork and veins of quartz, sphalerite (up to 1 %), galena (up to 1 %) and pyrrhotite (up to 3 %) hosted in a shear zone within strongly silicified mudstone associated with heavy chlorite alteration. Multiple grains of Visible Gold were identified within the reported mineralized intervals.

 

Drill hole GD-23-164 collared from Koala Pad, located 130 m southwest of Pad A, intercepted multiple occurrences of Visible Gold and significant quartz-sulphide mineralization in veins and stockwork with galena (up to 2 %), sphalerite (up to 1 %), and pyrrhotite (up to 3 %) corresponding to the Bonanza Shear that remains wide open. The mineralized interval consists of 7.87 g/t AuEq (7.76 g/t Au and 6.59 g/t Ag) over 7.00 meters including 10.98 g/t AuEq (10.84 g/t Au and 8.72 g/t Ag) over 5.00 meters and 18.25 g/t AuEq (18.05 g/t Au and 13.22 g/t Ag) over 3.00 meters. The gold-mineralization is associated with veins hosted in heavily altered siltstone and sandstone characterized by strong silicification and chloritization. Pyrrhotite with minor sphalerite and galena occur throughout inside of quartz veins and along patches of chlorite. Several veins containing specks of Visible Gold have been identified within the reported mineralized interval. The gold-mineralization in hole GD-23-164 confirmed and expanded the bonanza gold-grades to the Southwest of Pad A, where high-grade gold mineralization containing 21.30 gpt AuEq (20.46 gpt Au and 40.06 gpt Ag) over 7.77 meters was intercepted in hole GD-22-49 from the 2022 drill season.

 

Drill hole GD-23-188 collared from Beaver Pad, located 370 meters west of Pad A, intercepted multiple occurrences of Visible Gold and quartz-sulphide mineralization in two significant mineralized intervals corresponding to the Golden Gate Zone and a possible splay of the Bonanza Shear. The Golden Gate interval consists of 4.57 g/t AuEq (2.61 g/t Au and 82.58 g/t Ag) over 4.15 meters including 5.70 g/t AuEq (3.26 g/t Au and 103.03 g/t Ag) over 3.32 meters. The Bonanza Shear splay interval consists of 3.28 g/t AuEq (2.95 g/t Au and 4.15 g/t Ag) over 2.00 meters. The mineralization in both intervals is characterized by quartz-veins and stockwork with pyrrhotite (up to 3 %), sphalerite (up to 2 %) and galena (up to 2 %) hosted in chloritized and strongly silicified andesite. Visible Gold was identified in association with sulphides withing a brecciated section of the reported interval. The gold-mineralization in hole GD-23-188 confirmed and expanded the bonanza gold-grades observed in the Golden Gate Zone, where drill hole GD-23-197 assayed 9 meters of 34.03 g/t AuEq or 1.09 oz/t AuEq (32.55 g/t Au and 65.71 g/t Ag).

 

Additional holes of note reported in this news release include GD-23-207 collared from Bear Pad, 200 m to the West of Pad 16, intercepted 8.02 g/t AuEq (7.79 g/t Au and 10.79 g/t Ag) over 3.00 meters. GD-23-167 collared from Lion Pad, 650 meters to the West of Pad 16, intercepted 5.06 g/t AuEq (4.63 g/t Au and 17.95 g/t Ag) over 2.93 meters, and GD-23-150 collared from Pad 16 intercepted 3.42 g/t AuEq (3.29 g/t Au and 4.37 g/t Ag) over 5.00 meters.

 

The footprint of the Surebet Zone has been expanded to 1.8 km2, the equivalent of >336 NFL football fields. The results reported in this news release, coupled with intervals reported and modelled in the course of the project, demonstrates the existence of extensive multiple stacked bonanza-grade veins within 650 meters of the surface that have been tested to date. A study in collaboration with the Colorado School of Mines has confirmed that the mineralization formed at 4-5 km below the paleo-surface, confirming the excellent additional discovery potential at depth. To put this into perspective: there is potential for up to 5-10 times the number of stacked veins below the already discovered system corresponding to 10 times the height of the CN tower from top to bottom.

 

This original discovery has gone from idea to where it is today (31,600,000 m3 of rock) with only 10 months of aggregate time of boots on the ground over the last 3 exploration seasons, clearly demonstrating Surebet is a world class discovery, and we are likely only seeing the tip of the iceberg. Assays are pending on 100 holes drilled on the Golddigger property in 2023.

Oriented HQ-diameter or NQ-diameter diamond drill core from the drill campaign is placed in core boxes by the drill crew contracted by the Company. Core boxes are transported by helicopter to the staging area, and then transported by truck to the core shack. The core is then re-orientated, meterage blocks are checked, meter marks are labelled, Recovery and RQD measurements taken, and primary bedding and secondary structural features including veins, dykes, cleavage, and shears are noted and measured. The core is then described and transcribed in MX DepositTM. Drill holes were planned using Leapfrog GeoTM and QGISTM software and data from the 2017-2022 exploration campaigns. Drill core containing quartz breccia, stockwork, veining and/or sulphide(s), or notable alteration are sampled in lengths of 0.5 to 1.5 meters. Core samples are cut lengthwise in half, one-half remains in the box and the other half is inserted in a clean plastic bag with a sample tag. Standards, blanks and duplicates were added in the sample stream at a rate of 10%.

 

Grab, channels, chip and talus samples were collected by foot with helicopter assistance. Prospective areas included, but were not limited to, proximity to MINFile locations, placer creek occurrences, regional soil anomalies, and potential gossans based on high-resolution satellite imagery. The rock grab and chip samples were extracted using a rock hammer, or hammer and chisel to expose fresh surfaces and to liberate a sample of anywhere between 0.5 to 5.0 kilograms. All sample sites were flagged with biodegradable flagging tape and marked with the sample number. All sample sites were recorded using hand-held GPS units (accuracy 3-10 meters) and sample ID, easting, northing, elevation, type of sample (outcrop, subcrop, float, talus, chip, grab, etc.) and a description of the rock were recorded on all-weather paper. Samples were then inserted in a clean plastic bag with a sample tag for transport and shipping to the geochemistry lab. QA/QC samples including blanks, standards, and duplicate samples were inserted regularly into the sample sequence at a rate of 10%.

 

All samples are transported in rice bags sealed with numbered security tags. A transport company takes them from the core shack to the ALS labs facilities in North Vancouver. ALS is either certified to ISO 9001:2008 or accredited to ISO 17025:2005 in all of its locations. At ALS samples were processed, dried, crushed, and pulverized before analysis using the ME-MS61 and Au-SCR21 methods. For the ME-MS61 method, a prepared sample is digested with perchloric, nitric, hydrofluoric, and hydrochloric acids. The residue is topped up with dilute hydrochloric acid and analyzed by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry. Overlimits were re-analyzed using the ME-OG62 and Ag-GRA21 methods (gravimetric finish). For Au-SCR21 a large volume of sample is needed (typically 1-3kg). The sample is crushed and screened (usually to -106 micron) to separate coarse gold particles from fine material. After screening, two aliquots of the fine fraction are analysed using the traditional fire assay method. The fine fraction is expected to be reasonably homogenous and well represented by the duplicate analyses. The entire coarse fraction is assayed to determine the contribution of the coarse gold.

 

The reader is cautioned that grab samples are spot samples which are typically, but not exclusively, constrained to mineralization. Grab samples are selective in nature and collected to determine the presence or absence of mineralization and are not intended to be representative of the material sampled.
