  • Seven grab quartz vein samples collected at the Gold Drop Southwest Zone returned in excess of 1 gram per tonne gold (g/t Au)
  • Two of these samples exceeded 10 g/t Au including a sample adjacent to the historic C.O.D. shaft (19.65 g/t Au) and a bedrock vein sample along a new access road which returned 14.1 g/t Au

Vancouver, British Columbia – GGX Gold Corp. (TSXV: GGX) (the “Company” or “GGX”) is pleased to announce analytical results for initial rock samples collected during May 2017 at its high-grade Gold Drop property, located near Greenwood in southern British Columbia. Seven grab quartz vein samples collected at the Gold Drop Southwest Zone returned in excess of 1 gram per tonne gold (g/t Au). Two of these samples exceeded 10 g/t Au including a sample adjacent to the historic C.O.D. shaft (19.65 g/t Au) and a bedrock vein sample along a new access road which returned 14.1 g/t Au. This new vein showing is approximately 680 metres northeast of the C.O.D. shaft. The property covers geologically prospective ground in the well-mineralized Greenwood Mining Division. The property hosts numerous low-sulfide, gold and silver bearing quartz veins or vein systems, four of which were previously mined. One focus of the current work is to locate and sample reported veins and document historic workings. Such work was conducted in the Gold Drop Southwest Zone during May 2017.

During May 2017 the Company collected multiple rock samples at the Gold Drop Southwest Zone. Gold and silver bearing veins are reported in this area including the C.O.D. and Tel 2 gold – silver vein occurrences (B.C. MINFILE Occurrence No. 082ESE285 and082ESE287). The Company located the C.O.D. vein and historic C.O.D. shaft and other historic trenches and pits in this area during May. Rock samples were collected during the program at the C.O.D. vein at and close to the C.O.D. shaft; and from quartz veins northeast and northwest of the C.O.D. shaft. The samples were submitted to ALS Minerals in North Vancouver for gold analysis (Fire Assay and AAS). Select samples were also analyzed for 33 additional elements (Four Acid and ICP-AES). The Company has received analytical results for the first 20 samples collected. Seven of these rock samples exceeded 1 g/t Au (all being grab rock samples), listed in the following table:

Sample No. Au (g/t)   Comments
      Sample from southwest striking C.O.D. quartz vein (approximately 1 metre wide)
V108001 19.95 at historic  C.O.D. shaft.
V108002 1.20 Sample from C.O.D vein 15 metres southwest of V108001.
      Sample from pyrite bearing, southwest striking quartz vein (approximately 1
      metre wide) at historic shaft approximately 750 metres northeast of sample
V108003 2.93 V18001.
      Sample from pyrite bearing, newly exposed quartz vein (approximately 0.5
      metres wide) along new road. Approximately 80 metres southwest of sample
V108005 14.10 V108003 and approximately 680 metres northeast of V108001 (C.O.D. shaft).
      Sample of quartz vein from small pit approximately 40 metres northeast of
V108007 2.03 sample V108003.
      Sample of quartz vein from small pit approximately 170 metres northeast of
V108008 2.11 sample V108003.
      Sample of quartz vein (approximately 0.5-0.75 metres wide) from small pit
V108011 2.02 approximately 420 northwest of sample V108001.

This historic C.O.D. shaft is reported to be approximately 21 metres deep, and reported to have been sunk around 1900 on a gold bearing quartz vein (C.O.D. occurrence). The shaft was reported to have been de-watered in 1983 with the vein in the shaft being sampled. Historic 1980s trenches reportedly traced the vein to the southwest to the Tel 2 occurrence. The quartz vein in the shaft (C.O.D occurrence) is reported to be 1.22 metres wide, striking northeast – southwest. A 1988 diamond drill hole reported adjacent to the shaft was reported to intersect 7.4 g/t Au and 86.8 g/t Ag over 0.75 metres (true width of mineralization not reported). Chip samples during 1983 from the vein were reported to average 10.3 g/t Au and 102.6 g/t Ag over a length of 1.2 metres. A 1988 quartz vein grab sample from a trench southwest of the C.O.D. shaft was reported to return 20.8 g/t Au and 115.6 g/t Ag (Tel 2 gold and silver occurrence). This 1988 sample was reported as banded chalcedonic quartz.

Excavator trenching is underway now to further expose and trace the gold being veins sampled in May. Trenching in the area of sample V108005 is a high priority to Company management. This newly exposed quartz vein is on the approximate northeast trend of the C.O.D. vein. Samples V108003, V108007 and V108008 were also collected in this general area and further northeast of V108005. Trenching will test the area between the C.O.D shaft and this area of gold bearing veins.
