Golden Shield Resources Announces January Diamond Drilling Campaign at Mazoa Hill and Provides Exploration Update

15.01.2024 | 15:00 Uhr | CNW
Key Highlights
  • Golden Shield is set to commence a fully funded diamond drill program at the Marudi Mountain Property in mid-January 2024.
  • This diamond drill program will focus on testing the depth of high-grade gold mineralization at Mazoa Hill to guide resource estimation and testing new high-potential exploration drill targets.
  • The diamond drill program will build on significant intercepts from previous drilling activities at Mazoa Hill, including 50m grading 9.10 g/t Au and 9.75m grading 11.9 g/t Au.
  • The diamond drill is already on site and a consultant is being retained to assist in the preparation of a current resource estimate.
  • Company continues to make progress on the Marudi RC drill campaign, with 101 holes completed in 2023, totalling 5,588 metres. The aim of the drilling campaign is to target newly discovered zones and establish continuity of mineralization laterally with the ultimate goal to follow up with an expanded diamond drill-program on defined targets.

VANCOUVER, Jan. 15, 2024 - Golden Shield Resources Inc. (CSE: GSRI) (OTCQB: GSRFF) (FRA: 4LE0) (the "Company" or "Golden Shield") is pleased to announce that it will commence a fully-funded diamond drill program at the Marudi Mountain Property ("Marudi" or the "Property") in mid-January 2024. The first hole of the diamond drilling program will test the vertical extent of the steeply plunging high-grade gold "ore" shoot at Mazoa Hill and from there move to testing new high-potential exploration targets, starting with Pancake Creek.

The Company is still receiving and processing results from December's reverse circulation ("RC") drill program from Pancake Creek and elsewhere. These results will be released and incorporated into exploration plans as they are available.

Leo Hathaway, Executive Chairman of Golden Shield, commented, "Golden Shield released stellar results including 50 metres grading 9.10 g/t gold from Mazoa Hill in 2022, and continued stepping out on 50 fences to depth, to more than 180m beyond the Historic Pit Limiting Shell. In January we will initiate a 3,000m drill program that will both definitely determine the vertical depth and resource potential at Mazoa Hill and the potential of the other targets, Pancake Creek being the most compelling."

Mazoa Hill and Diamond Drilling Campaign

Over 30,000m of drilling has taken place at Mazoa Hill, intersecting high grade gold mineralization to a vertical depth of approximately 400m with hole MH-23-33 (13.70m grading 2.28 g/t gold including 3.00m grading 7.64 g/t gold), the final hole of Golden Shield's 2022 diamond drill program. Golden Shield has systematically stepped out and traced the high grade "ore" shoot to approximately 180m beyond the previous pit limiting shell and the mineralization remains open below the base of all drilling at a vertical depth of approximately 400m. As depth to the target increases below this, the drill cost to test it for each intercept in step out drilling becomes progressively more expensive (See Figure 2 and 3).

In order to extend mineralization and for a number of geological reasons (below), Golden Shield has decided to drill a deep hole, up to 950m deep, targeting the axis of high-grade gold mineralization (See Figure 4). The maximum depth is limited by the drill rods available at site, so Golden Shield has asked the Canadian drill contractor to ship additional drill rods to site. Geological reasons for drilling this exploratory hole include:

  • Testing continuity of mineralization along strike (previous holes drilled across strike).
  • Testing vertical depth extent of high-grade mineralization in order to determine viability of drilling depth extent into Inferred category.
  • Obtain information on vertical zonation (lithology, alteration, mineralization), within deposit.
  • Understand gold mineralization controls, especially east-west gold bearing veins cut at low angles by previous drilling.
  • Provide a good geostatistical sample of the average grade of the deposit.
  • Confirm the presence of any faulting or folding that could displace the high grade zone at depth.

Golden Shield has completed three phases of diamond drilling in 2021 and 2022, totaling over 9,000 m. The Company has had significant past drilling success at Mazoa Hill, including the following highlights:

  • 50 m at 9.10 g/t Au in MH-21-04
  • 9.75 m at 11.9 g/t Au MH-21-03
  • 43 m at 1.39 g/t Au MH-21-02
  • 33.2 m at 3.45 g/t Au MH-22-16
  • 31 m at 7.58 g/t Au MH-22-21
  • 10 m at 4.59 g/t Au MH-22-18

The 2021 and 2022 drill programs at Mazoa Hill confirmed that mineralization extends beyond the historical resource both laterally and at depth. The excellent drilling results from the previous drill campaigns have not been incorporated in the historical resource. The upcoming diamond drill program at Mazoa Hill will definitively determine the vertical extent of gold mineralization at Mazoa Hill, below all previous drilling (See Figure 3).

The Company will keep drilling while the hole is intersecting the prospective Ferruginous Quartzite ("FQ") lithology.

Golden Shield's geologists and an external consultant are reviewing Mazoa Hill data and drill core and working to identify the most cost-effective way to explore this high-grade deposit/deposits and prepare a current mineral resource estimate. The historical mineral resource estimate on Mazoa Hill (the "Historical Resource Estimate") is detailed in Table 2.

The Historical Resource Estimate was based on the following assumptions: (a) open pit resources were stated as contained within a conceptual open pit above a 0.50 g/t Au cut-off; (b) pit constraints were based on an assumed gold price of US$1,500/oz., mining cost of US$2.30/t and processing cost of US$16.80/t; (c) assay grades were capped at 30 g/t Au; (d) mineral resource tonnage and contained metal were rounded to reflect the accuracy of the estimate, and numbers may not add due to rounding; (e) mineral resource tonnage and grades were reported as undiluted; and (f) contained Au ounces are in-situ and did not include recovery losses.

(2) Readers are cautioned that the Historical Resource Estimate is considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by a previous property owner. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Resource Estimate as a current resource and the Company is not treating the Historical Resource Estimate as a current resource. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the Historical Resource Estimate can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that the historical mineral resource, in-whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category.

Marudi Mountain - additional target generation program

101 RC drillholes, totaling 5,588m have now been completed at Marudi. Results have yet to be received or are being processed from 36 RC holes drilled in 2023, and these will be released as soon as possible.
