September 29, 2016 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Gainey Capital Corp. (TSXV:GNC) is pleased to announce assay results from the first hole of the Company’s ongoing, Phase 1 drill program at the near surface, La Nueva Victoria Mineralized Zone (“La Nueva Victoria”) of the El Colomo property in Sierra Madre Golden Belt, Mexico. The mineralized interval commences at 5.15 meters from surface for 70.85 meters of 0.65 g/t Au and 35.31 g/t Ag (1.14 g/t Au Eq), please see Table 1 below for more details:
Table 1 – New drill results from the La Nueva Victoria Zone at El Colomo:
*Au Equivalent calculated using a price of $1,300 US/oz for gold and $18 US/oz for silver.
Hole 1 targeted the center of the silicified vein breccia zone, consisting of grey quartz veining and permeable lithic tuff, of the La Victoria structure at a dip of -60 degrees. Two additional holes targeting this zone are currently being processed, and the results are anticipated shortly.
Rafael Gallardo, Senior Geologist of Minera Cascabel S.A. de C.V., who is leading the drill program, commented, “the results that we have received for the first drill hole are very encouraging and I look forward to the results from the other two holes designed to target this zone. The near-surface Au-Ag mineralization we have encountered is typical of epithermal low-sulphidation type deposits found in the area.”
David Coburn, CEO of Gainey, commented, “the maiden drill results on La Nueva Victoria confirm our model for sub-surface mineralization following up on our initial detailed sampling program. Further drilling along trend and at depth has the potential to see this zone expand significantly and, in addition to future drilling at La Higuerita and El Arrayan, have the potential to support the discovery of an under-explored gold-silver mineralized system.”
