CLIENT FEATURE: Garibaldi (GGI: TSX-V) Attractive Share Structure, Strong News flow from Mexico and BC

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 2:11 PM on Friday, January 9th, 2015


  • Attractive share structure
  • Drilling in progress – strong news flow from Mexico and B.C.


  • Synergistic mix of business, market & geological expertise
  • Drilling underway at La Patilla Gold Property (high-grade targets) plus multiple drill-ready targets at 3 district-scale projects in Mexico
  • Largest landholder (262km2) among juniors in Sheslay Cu – Au porphyry discovery area at top of B.C’s Golden Triangle



Through the strength of its geological team and the use of cutting- edge technology and proprietary data, Garibaldi has built a foundation for lasting success in Mexico:

  • GGI continues to accurately pinpoint the most prospective targets for potential new discoveries in large, district-scale land packages
  • Project value is being cost-effectively unlocked
  • Financial strength is being built (i.e., sale of Temoris option, current Tonichi pilot coal program generating royalty income)

La Patilla Project

  • First-ever diamond drilling at the La Patilla gold property in Sinaloa state has returned highly encouraging gold values near-surface, including an interval grading 10.4 grams per tonne gold over 8.5
  • Five of six holes drilled to test the La Patilla vein system intersected broad zones of mineralization along 75 metres of strike length to depths of approximately 50 metres

Rodadero North Project

  • Drilling along almost 100 meters of strike length has returned significant high-grade silver intersections within 50 meters of surface, and mineralization remains open in all directions;
  • SE-14-03 intersected 1,935 g/t Ag (62.2 oz/t) between 4 and 5 meters’ depth while the most recent hole (SE-14-06) – the farthest step-out from previously reported discovery hole SE-14-01 – has produced the widest mineralized intercept to date;
  • Surface sampling at three target areas immediately southeast and east of Silver Eagle has returned high-grade silver (up to 8,000 g/t Ag) in addition to high-grade gold (up to 52.6 g/t Au) as explained further in this update;
  • As Garibaldi commences a second round of drilling at Silver Eagle, the total number of mineralized target areas within the 45 sq. km Rodadero North Project has increased from eight to 11.
  • Phase 2 diamond drilling continues, surface sampling results from mineralized outcrops indicate continued high silver values in addition to a significant increase in base metal content (up to 14.9% lead and 1.8% zinc) 1.5 km to 3 km south of discovery hole SE-14-01.


  • Successful exploration methods developed in Mexico are now being adopted to rapidly advance the company’s 100%-owned Grizzly Property
  • Multiple targets are being identified over 15 km from Grizzly West to Grizzly Central
  • GGI is the largest landholder among juniors in this highly prospective, under-exploited new Cu-Au porphyry discovery area in prolific Stikine Arch
  • Recently announced that it has acquired two highly prospective Cu-Au porphyry properties within the Stikine Arch

Red Lion

  • The Red Lion prospect, comprising 35 sq. km, is located 60 km south of AuRico Gold’s Kemess mine and adjoins the Kiska Metals’ Kliyul Cu-Au porphyry project under option to Teck Resources Ltd. The Red Lion shows extremely strong Cu-Au stream sediment geochemistry in both Government Regional Geochemical Survey responses and follow-up proprietary surveys. Access and infrastructure at Red Lion are excellent with the powerline to the Kemess South mine only three km away.

Mount Sister Mary (MSM)

  • The MSM prospect, comprising 58 sq. km, is located approximately 50 km northeast of Imperial Metals’ Red Chris mine and is underlain by similar Triassic and Jurassic volcanic and plutonic rocks. Government Regional Geochemical Survey responses confirm prior assessment work in which at least eight Cu-Ag-Au showings have been documented on the property.

Garibaldi drill tests new high-grade area north of Silver Eagle discovery hole

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:32 PM on Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

VANCOUVER, Nov. 26, 2014 – Garibaldi Resources Corp. (TSX.V: GGI) (the “Company” or “Garibaldi”) is pleased to report that high-grade silver mineralization has been confirmed through assays from channel sampling 150 meters north of Silver Eagle discovery hole SE-14-01 at the Rodadero North Project in central Sonora State, Mexico. This area will be drill-tested beginning later this week in an attempt to expand the Silver Eagle system in a northerly direction.

All drill holes completed to date at Silver Eagle, with the exception of SE-14-05, have been to the south of SE-14-01 where mineralization remains open and has been traced for an additional 3 km south beyond the Reales target in sampling of surface outcrops and small underground workings. The Company eagerly anticipates receiving the next batch of assay results (drill holes SE-14-07 through SE-14-12) during the first half of December.

Silver Eagle is the westernmost of 11 target areas defined over more than 45 sq. km at Rodadero North where mineralization transitions from primarily high-grade silver at Silver Eagle, discovered through sampling and shallow drilling, to high-grade gold, silver and base metals trending eastward. A drill plan map for the Tarichi target, 2.5 km southeast of Silver Eagle, is now available at

Channel Samples Return Up To 881 g/t Ag

Two immediate drill holes will test for continuity of mineralization to depths of less than 100 meters at the new surface discovery north of SE-14-01. All five channel samples from a shallow pit returned significant silver grades – 881 g/t (28.3 oz/tonne), 771 g/t, 763 g/t, 452 g/t and 87 g/t. Widths ranged from 1.4 to 1.9 meters. The average grade was 604 g/t Ag over an average width of 1.6 meters.

Steve Regoci, President and CEO of Garibaldi, commented: “Given results generated to date by drilling, sampling and our hyperspectral technology, and the fact that this project is situated in the heart of a prolific mining region, we’re extremely excited with what we see at Rodadero as the emergence of a new mineral camp in central Sonora State.”

By the nature of the biases of sampling, the above results are not necessarily representative of mineralization at Rodadero North in general or, specifically, within the zones, structures or geological features that were sampled.

Mineralization at Silver Eagle is hosted in silicified conglomerate and overlying andesitic volcanic rocks along a north-northwest trending structural zone. Mineralization also appears to be associated with the stratigraphy of the conglomerate.

Quality Assurance & Control

Garibaldi maintains strict QA-QC protocols for all aspects of its exploration programs that include the systematic insertion of blanks and standards into each sample batch. Acme Labs (now part of the Bureau Veritis group that includes BSI Inspectorate) has performed assay analyses on Rodadero North drill core and some of the rock samples, while ALS Global (formerly ALS Chemex) has also performed some analyses on rock samples. All samples reported in this release were assayed using certified and industry standard assay techniques for gold, and multi-element packages for other elements and for over-limits. Au was analyzed by 30 or 50 gram fire assay with an atomic absorption finish, and other elements were analyzed by multi-element ICP.
