Gold Springs Resource Reports on Three Additional Targets at its Flagship Project

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 9, 2020 / Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX:GRC)(OTCQB:GRCAF) (the “Company” or “GRC”), is pleased to announce mapping and surface-sample results generated on the Ridge, West Ridge and Big Summit targets on the Nevada portion of the Gold Springs project (see map below). GRC work has generated high-grade gold and silver values in all of these areas as the targets are readied for drilling.

The targets display banded and bladed epithermal quartz and quartz-calcite veining, breccias and stockwork zones as is typically seen within the current resource areas at Gold Springs. Material from these veins which was collected from outcrops, float and historic mine dumps returned multi-gram gold results. The Ridge target vein samples grade as high as 2.77 g/t Au and 20.8 g/t silver. Vein samples from the West Ridge target grade up to 5.60 g/t Au and 32.6 g/t silver. The Big Summit target area returned the highest grades with samples as high as 30.3 g/t Au and 94.2 g/t silver. Together Ridge, West ridge and Big Summit encompass a 7.2 square-kilometre area within the western portion of the Gold Springs project and is predominantly covered by post mineral material.

Matias Herrero, President and CEO, stated “Our continuing effort to not only prepare the multitude of gold targets for drilling but to convey the size and the potential for hosting additional resources, has again generated high-quality targets containing high-grade gold mineralization. We are excited to develop an understanding for the size of these targets that have seen little attention in the past. With the dimensions of these three areas covering over 7 square kilometres and the excellent gold grades generated during our sampling efforts these targets have grown far past our initial interpretations. These targets are largely concealed by post-mineral cover, but our field crews have identified controls for the gold mineralization on these very promising areas which we hope to prove capable of hosting new mineral resources.”

Ridge Target

The Ridge target is located 3 kilometers west of the White Point target (press release August 4, 2020) along the Deer Lodge canyon structural zone. The Deer Lodge canyon marks the northwest boundary of the Gold Springs Caldera, a splay of which hosts the Grey Eagle resource. Much of the Ridge target is covered with post-mineral colluvium but examining the limited outcrops, historic workings, and mineralization found in float has provided evidence of an extensive epithermal gold system below the shallow cover. Mineralized float is found over a 1.7 x 1.1 kilometre area signifying the potential size of the Ridge target. In historical working near the caldera margin there are outcropping explosion breccias typically found at high levels within epithermal gold systems indicating there may be a fully preserved system hosted along the caldera boundary.

Mineralized material in float include, stockwork veining in andesite, banded and bladed quartz-calcite veins, and silicified hydrothermal breccias. Vein samples returned assays as high as 2.77 g/t Au and 20.8 g/t silver, with hydrothermal breccia grading 0.44 g/t Au and 35.7 g/t silver. Values greater than the resource cut-off grade of 0.25 g/t Au are listed below.

West Ridge Target

West Ridge is located immediately south of the Ridge target in the western portion of the Gold Springs project area. Similar to the Ridge target, much of the area is covered with a thin layer of colluvium, with mineralized float found over the 1.6 x 1.2 kilometre target area. Together the Ridge and West Ridge targets represent a large caldera-margin block, similar to the one hosting the Grey Eagle resource.

Within the historical workings at the West Ridge target veins, breccia and stockwork zones are found to be gold bearing with vein material assays up to 5.60 g/t Au and 32.6 g/t Ag with stockwork zones along the vein margins grading +1.0 g/t gold. Values greater than the resource cut-off grade of 0.25 g/t Au are listed below.

Big Summit Target

The Big Summit target is located immediately south of the Ridge and West Ridge targets and shows many similarities to those systems. Much of the area is covered with colluvium with a limited number of outcrops and historical workings offering insight into what is below.

Mineralized float is found over a 1.7 x 2.0 kilometre area which provides an indication of the large potential size of this target. Workings in the area reveal altered and mineralized andesite below post-mineral tuffs and colluvium. Outcropping and sub-outcropping calcite-quartz veins are also found in areas near the historic workings. Veins are hosted within silicified andesite with several vein samples returning multi-gram gold values, reaching 30.3 g/t Au and 94.2 g/t silver. Values greater than the resource cut-off grade of 0.25 g/t Au are listed below.
