HALIFAX, Feb. 20, 2020 /CNW/ – GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (OTCQX: GLGDF) (“GoGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that the Company has launched a second exploration project in the Los Ricos district called Monte del Favor (“North Project”). The Company has consolidated its land position along the 35 km trend with the acquisition of 5 new concessions in the district, bringing the total number of concessions to 35 covering 22,493 hectares.
The new concessions come with a legacy database of 50 historical drill holes with grades as high as 2,109 g/t silver equivalent (6.4 g/t Au and 1,629 g/t Ag) over 24.4m with further highlight drill holes in the table below. This area is where the Company will begin a drill program in the next 45 days. The Company’s technical team has been on the ground at the North Project mapping, trenching and sampling for the past 3 months and are currently preparing the first three drill targets.
“We have a strategic plan for the Los Ricos district which includes consolidation of concessions and drilling for ounces. With the completion of the latest concession acquisitions and our financing, we will be adding drill rigs and accelerating our exploration to showcase the Los Ricos district to be one of the most prospective in Mexico” said Brad Langille, President and CEO. “All the elements are now in place for us to execute on creating more value at Los Ricos for our shareholders.”
The first target contains a number of historical underground workings, as well as small surface pits and trenches. Drilling on the concessions was completed most recently between 2005 to 2007, with 50 holes completed covering over 6,000 metres, of which the majority intercepted mineralization near surface. Highlights of the historical drill results are shown in Table 1 below.
