GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (“GoGold”) is pleased to announce that it has drilled numerous high grade gold drill holes in the proposed open pit zones at its Santa Gertrudis Gold Mine located in Sonora state Mexico. The company is continuing to advance Santa Gertrudis to reestablish production. The drilling was designed to confirm historic mineralization and to test targets in the immediate vicinity of the open pit resource in the Pre-Economic Assessment (“PEA”) (See Press Release dated September 10, 2014). Hole GGDOR-010 (8.80 g/t gold over 37.6 metres) along with hole GGDOR-001 (6.79 g/t gold over 38.4 metres) confirm the down dip high grade extension at the Dora Pit structure and also confirms that the Oxide zone continues below the previously thought depth of the Oxide mineralization. These holes confirmed the higher grades at the Dora structure and identified the material as mostly Oxide. The past mining of the oxide material located immediately above this intercept had reported 75% recoveries on a conventional heap leach with a crush size of four inches.

Additionally, other significant holes have been drilled at the Corral zone and Cristina zone with highlights that include 17 metres of 3.58 g/t gold at Corral and 31.4 metres of 1.18 g/t gold at Cristina. These three targets have been identified as the initial pits the company could restart mining and should represent the first four years of feed. Construction is expected to commence immediately following the completion of final engineering of the heap leach pad and the processing plant design.  See chart below for the full results from the new drilling at Santa Gertrudis:

True width has not been calculated for each individual intercept, but true width is generally estimated at 85%-95% of drilled width.  Metallurgical recoveries and net smelter returns are assumed to be 100%. GGDOR 003, 005, 006, 007, GGCOR 001, 004 & GGCR 018, 020, 021, 029 did not contain significant assays.

 

The diamond drilling programs at Dora, Corral and Cristina deposits were designed to confirm the resource and reserve models, obtain fresh material for metallurgical testwork, and obtain geotechnical information for pit slope design and crushing index testwork.  Sixty six (66) diamond drill holes totaling 6,748.3 metres of HQ size core were completed in the Phase 1 program.  Four (4) geotechnical diamond drill holes totaling 505 metres of HQ3 triple tube core with a core-orienting system to collect structural data have also been completed to date under the supervision of Golder Associates.  Eight (8) additional geotechnical holes and seven (7) PQ-size diamond drill holes for crushing index testwork remain to be drilled.

On March 2nd 2015 the company announced that it had received the environmental permit allowing development of the past producing Santa Gertrudis gold mine from the Mexican Department of Environment (Semarnat). The permit included acceptance of the environmental impact assessment for its Santa Gertrudis gold mine.

Santa Gertrudis has a resource of 810,000 oz Indicated (23.3 Mt @ 1.08 g/t Au) & 255,000 oz Inferred (7.7 Mt @ 1.02 g/t Au) A Pre-Economic Assessment (“PEA”) (See Press Release dated September 10, 2014) was completed with a pre-tax internal rate of return (“IRR”) of 54%. All in Sustaining Cash Cost per ounce of gold was calculated to be $699 for life of mine (“LOM”). The study projects an initial capital cost of only $32million USD and a LOM of 12 years with an average annual production of 57,000 ounces of gold. The mine production is planned at 7,500 tonnes per day (“tpd”) on a conventional heap leach with a sustaining capital of only $18 million over LOM. The Preliminary Economic Assessment Study was prepared by P&E Group of Canada, in accordance with the requirements of Canadian National Instrument 43-101 “Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects”. (“NI 43-101”)

Core Samples

All diamond drilling was completed using HQ size drilling tools. The drilling crew boxes the core and GoGold employees transport it to the core shack where the core is geologically logged, photographed and marked for sampling. When the sample lengths are determined the core is sawn with a diamond blade core saw with one third of the core being bagged and tagged for assay. The remaining two third portion is returned to the core trays for storage and or for metallurgical test work.

 

Lab Preparation and Assay

The sealed and tagged sample bags are transported to the ActLabs facility in Zacatecas, Mexico. ActLabs crushes the samples and prepares 200-300 gram pulp samples with ninety percent passing Tyler 150 mesh (106μm). 

The pulps are assayed for gold using a 50 gram charge by fire assay (Code 1A2-50) and over limits greater than 10 grams per tonne are re-assayed using a gravimetric finish (Code 1A3-50). Silver and multi-element analysis is completed using total digestion (Code 1F2 Total Digestion ICP).

 

Quality Assurance / Quality Control and Data Verification

Quality assurance and quality control procedures include the systematic insertion of blanks, standards and duplicates into the sample strings. The results of the assaying of the QA/QC material included in each batch are tracked to ensure the integrity of the assay data.  All results stated in this announcement have passed GoGold’s quality assurance and quality control ("QA/QC") protocols.
