Getchell Gold Corp. (CSE: GTCH) (OTCQB: GGLDF) ("Getchell" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the engagement of Apex Geoscience Ltd. ("Apex") of Edmonton, AB, to conduct a resource estimation ("2022 Resource Estimate") for the Fondaway Canyon gold project in Nevada.

Key Highlights

  • Fondaway Canyon gold project resource estimate is targeted for late September 2022;
  • Exploration developments subsequent to 2017 historic resource estimate include:

– Three drill campaigns completed plus one ongoing drill program conducted;
– Significant discoveries and expanded gold zones; and
– Consistently successful drill results;

  • Extensive gold mineralized zones complemented by high-grade shear veins add to the Project's potential;
  • Gold mineralization remains open in most directions.

"We have been and continue to be extremely successful in our drill programs and look forward to formally quantifying the mineralization defined to date." states Mike Sieb, President, Getchell Gold Corp. "I expect this is only the first such exercise as we continue to expand and delineate the extensive gold mineralizing system so readily evident at Fondaway Canyon."

Fondaway Canyon is an advanced stage gold property with a large historic resource located in Churchill County, Nevada. Gold was first discovered in Fondaway Canyon in 1977 and over the intervening 40+ years has been the subject of multiple exploration campaigns along a 3.5 km E-W gold mineralized corridor (Figure 1) totaling over 700 reverse circulation and core drill holes, small-scale open pit mining of the oxidized zone at surface, and underground development for exploration and bulk sampling.

There have been three drill campaigns completed (Canagold Resources Ltd. in 2017, Getchell in 2020 and 2021) and one ongoing (Getchell 2022) subsequent to the release of a historic resource estimate in early 2017 by a past operator.

The full complement of the 2017, 2020, and 2021 drill results combined with any drill results received from the current drill program up to a July 31, 2022, cut off date will be incorporated in the 2022 Resource Estimate. The completion of the 2022 Resource Estimate and supporting NI43-101 technical report is targeted for late September 2022.

Recent Results

There have been significant advancements and discoveries since the publishing of the historic resource estimate. The delineated envelope of the gold mineralization in the Central Area has considerably expanded with the to-date defined mineralization ranging 600 metres E-W along strike, 800 metres down dip to the SW, and approximately 100 metres thick. Within this envelope, substantial and very high-grade shear vein structures with significant depth extents contribute to the potential. The drilling has yet to test the full extent of the gold mineralization and the mineralization remains open in most directions.

The Company has posted significant news in 2022, starting with the release of the results from the last hole of the 2021 drill program at Fondaway Canyon, FCG21-16, targeting the North Fork zone (Company news release dated February 15, 2022). FCG21-16 encountered a gold interval grading 6.3 g/t Au over 50.7m that includes a higher-grade core returning 10.4 g/t Au over 25.0m and represents the greatest 'gold grade x thickness' value in the 40+ year history of gold exploration and mining at the Project.

Drill hole FCG22-17, the first drill hole of the 2022 drill program at Fondaway Canyon, designed to further delineate the gold interval encountered by FCG21-16, intersected high-grade gold mineralization at a shallow depth of 66.1 m down hole grading 17.7 g/t Au over 9.9 m within a broader zone grading 5.4 g/t Au over 51.9 m (Company news release dated June 15, 2022). Of note, assay results from FCG22-17 have been returned to a depth of 119.5 m and assays are pending for the remainder of the hole.

With two active drill rigs, one at the Fondaway Canyon gold project and the other at the Star Copper-Gold-Silver project, the Company expects drill results to be released through 2022.

This event will feature a live Question & Answer session and is open to all media and interested investors.

Joe Mazumdar: Good vs. Bad Financings — What to Look for When Juniors Raise Moneyyoutu.be

Raising money is a key challenge for juniors in today's markets — and even when companies are able to secure funds, it's key to remember that not all financings are equal.

Speaking at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, Joe Mazumdar, editor of Exploration Insights, shared his thoughts on how investors can differentiate between good and bad financings.

Along with considerations like warrants, he told the Investing News Network that before buying shares of an exploration company it's a good idea to look at when it last went to market.
