  • Results for 2018 holes COD18-43 to COD18-45 which tested the COD Vein, in the Gold Drop Southwest Zone.
  • COD18-45 returned 50.1 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 375 g/t silver over 2.05
  • 2018 drilling program also tested the continuation of the Everest Vein, which is located approximately 600 meters southwest of the COD Vein worksite.

GGX Gold Corp. (TSX-v: GGX), (OTCQB: GGXXF), (FRA: 3SR2) (the “Company” or “GGX”) is pleased to announce it has received additional analytical results from its diamond drilling program on the Gold Drop property, located near Greenwood, B.C. Drill core analytical results have been received for 2018 drill holes COD18-43 to COD18-45 which tested the COD Vein. The COD gold bearing vein is located in the Gold Drop Southwest Zone.

The highlight from these analytical results is an intersection of 50.1 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 375 g/t silver over 2.05 meter core length in drill hole COD18-45 which tested the COD Vein, including 167.5 g/t gold, 1,370 g/t silver and >500 g/t tellurium over 0.46 meter core length. This gold-bearing intersection of quartz veins and altered granodiorite in COD18-45 is located at approximately 20 meter vertical depth and approximately 160 meters southwest of the area of 2017 trenching at the COD Vein. COD18-45 is located approximately 220 meters southwest of drill hole COD17-14 which intersected the 4.59 g/t gold over 16.03 meters, including 10.96 g/t gold over 5.97 meters (News Release of September 7, 2017).

The 2018 drilling program focused on testing and defining the COD Vein, a Dentonia/Jewel style quartz vein. Trenching during 2017 exposed the northeast – southwest striking COD Vein for over 160 meter strike length. The 2018 drilling program also tested the continuation of the Everest Vein, which is located approximately 600 meters southwest of the COD Vein worksite. The Everest Vein was first discovered by Company prospectors during the 2017. Chip samples collected in 2017 across the approximate 0.4 meter wide vein exposure returned up to 52.8 g/t gold and 377 g/t silver while a grab sample of a quartz vein boulder broken off the outcrop by the excavator returned 81.8 g/t gold and 630 g/t silver (News Release of August 21, 2017).

The analytical results listed below are highlights from drill holes COD18-43 to COD18-45 (intersections greater than 1 g/t gold), testing the continuation of the COD Vein south-southwest of the 2017 trench. Since true widths cannot be accurately determined from the information available the core lengths (meters) are reported. The gold, silver and tellurium analyses are reported in grams per tonne (g/t).

Previous drill core analytical results from the 2018 drilling program are reported in News Releases of May 29, June 14, June 27, July 11, July 19, July 25, August 1 and August 9. The 2.05 meter core length intersection in drill hole COD18-45 at the COD Vein is the highlight of the 2018 drilling program to date and represents a significant intersection with high grade gold southwest of the 2017 trench. Prior to the receipt of these analytical results, the highlight of the 2018 drilling program was 14.62 g/t gold, 150.2 g/t silver and 102.0 g/t tellurium over 2.1 meter core length in drill hole COD18-3 at the COD Vein, located in the area of the 2017 trench and vicinity of drill hole COD17-14. The following map of the COD Vein work area includes some of the more significant 2017 – 2018 drill intersections.

Drill core from the 2018 program was geologically logged and sampled. Drill core was sawn in half with half core samples submitted for analysis and remaining half core stored in a secure location. Core samples were delivered to the ALS Minerals laboratory in Vancouver to be analyzed for gold by Fire Assay – AA. Samples exceeding 100 g/t gold were re-analyzed for gold by Fire Assay – Gravimetric Finish. The samples were also analyzed for 48 Elements by Four Acid ICP-MS. Samples exceeding 100 g/t silver were re-analyzed for silver by Four Acid ICP-AES. Quality control (QC) samples were inserted at regular intervals.
