Vancouver, British Columbia – June 17, 2020 – GGX Gold Corp. (TSX-v: GGX), (OTCQB: GGXXF), (FRA: 3SR2) (the “Company” or “GGX”) is pleased to announce it is about to kick-off its 2020 exploration program at the Gold Drop property in the Greenwood Mining Camp.
This field season will begin in June with drilling and trenching, as well as prospecting and rock sampling activities. Targets identified for this year include the C.O.D. vein area, the Rhoderick Dhu area, the Gold Drop mine area, and further testing of the airborne geophysical survey anomaly that was identified in 2019. Importantly this year, preparations for field programs will first start with development and implementation of protocols and measures to prevent and control the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
At the C.O.D. vein area, trenching will be done to expose the southern part of the vein where the best mineralized intercepts were obtained in the drilling done to date. The objective will be to assess the vein for a possible bulk sample and determine if it is offset by a fault further to the south. Work will also target parallel veins located west of the C.O.D. vein, where prospecting conducted last year identified sub-crop of mineralized vein quartz where a grab sample assayed 55.8 grams per tonne gold and greater than 100 grams per tonne silver. Other quartz vein showings at the Rhoderick Dhu prospect, located north of the C.O.D., will also be trenched and possibly drilled. At the historic Gold Drop mine area, located east of the C.O.D., trenching and possible drilling is planned to test for extensions of gold-tellurium bearing veins that were mined historically.

Analytical results reported above were provided by ALS Laboratories in North Vancouver, BC., an independent and accredited commercial laboratory. Analyses for gold were done by fire assay with AA finish on 50 gram sub-samples, or by metallics sieve analyses. Analyses for silver were by four acid digestion with ICP-MS finish. Quality control was monitored using analytical results for reference standards and blank samples inserted into the sample stream at a frequency of 5% each.
