TSXV:AUC) (USOTCQB:AUCCF), (Frankfurt:9FY), (the "Company" or "Goldplay"), is pleased to announce the results of the first drill hole completed on the historical Aparis Copper Mine ("Aparis or the Project") in Portugal. The Aparis mine is part of the 73.2 km2 Barrancos exploration license and other two projects held by a private Portuguese company, Indice Crucial Lda ("Indice Crucial") on which Goldplay can earn up to 100% interest (see Company's news release dated June 23, 2021 for more details

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Discovery of near surface gold mineralization, at past producing copper mine (gold presence was previously unknown)
  • Drill intercept: 5.87 grams per tonne ("g/t") Au over 2 meters ("m")from 46.05-48.05 m.
  • Extensivevein system mapped over 5 km along strike
  • Historic Mine located less than 160Km (over paved roads) to a Copper smelter located in Huelva

Goldplay has completed an initial drilling campaign comprised of three diamond drill holes totaling 824 m at the past producing Aparis mine located in in the town of Barrancos, Portugal. The objective of this initial drilling program was to expand and better define the known mineralization and to evaluate the Project's upside potential.

The Company's objective is to develop a comprehensive plan aimed at evaluating the prospects and advancing the Aparis mine towards a possible production restart scenario.

The project is situated at approximately 160 km by road of a large copper smelter adjacent to the Huelva commercial port, in Spain. The smelter is owned by Atlantic Copper, a Freport-McMoRan company.

The copper (gold-silver) mineralized system is interpreted to be genetically associated with a late-Devonian hypabyssal bimodal magmatic suite and breccia systems that seems to also contain high-grade gold values, hosted in a Devonian flysch sequence of alternating shales and greywackes with minor conglomerates. Additional high grade gold values are present in other target areas that are presently being assessed.

This mineralized shear corridor was mined for copper to a maximum depth of 220m over several sections of the shear system, since early 1900's until 1975, date when the mine closed due to depressed copper market prices.

The near term exploration focus will be on continuing drilling to prove up the depth and strike extensions of the known mineralization targeting wider zones than those historically mined.

While this initial drilling campaign has been focused on the copper mineralization, we have been pleasantly surprised to discover important gold mineralization as well. Historically, the Aparis mine was only mined and explored for copper. While copper remains our main focus at Aparis, the presence of gold has the potential to further enhance the prospects of the project going forward.

Today's results are for the first hole completed by Goldplay on the project. Results for two more holes, that have been already completed, are in the lab pending assays. Key results include:

Hole GBA2102 was successful in intercepting a 15m wide quartz-carbonate breccia zone rich in chalcopyrite and pyrite with subordinate amounts of chalcocite and native copper in gossanous fractures. This intercept includes a 1.9m section with no recovery which represents probably an old mining stope. Lab assays results are pending.

Catalin Kilofliski, Goldplay Mining President & CEO stated: "We are very pleased with the discovery made by our highly experienced team in Portugal on the first hole that Goldplay has ever drilled in the country. The presence of gold in a project that has been historically mined only for copper is very encouraging. Our team will continue to evaluate the gold discovery at Aparis as it seems that similar type of mineralization has been encountered over a trend that runs for over 10 km along strike further to the east of this prospect. Portugal hosts a vast mineral potential, and our Company remains committed to take advantage of these opportunities."

QA/QC

All samples were sent to ALS Global Laboratories in Spain for sample preparation and analysis. At the laboratory, rock sample preparation involved drying, fine crushing to better than 70% passing minus 2 mm (CRY-31), then split the sample using a Boyd Rotary Splitter (SPL-22Y) and pulverizing a 1000g split to 85% passing the

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Global central bank gold reserves top 35,500 metric tons (MT), approximately one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. The vast majority of central bank gold holdings were acquired in the last decade, when national banks became net buyers of the yellow metal.

Central banks purchase gold for a number of reasons: to mitigate risk, to hedge against inflation and to promote economic stability. In its most recent annual survey released in June 2022, the World Gold Council (WGC) said that 61 percent of central bankers expect global gold reserves to increase over the next 12 months. Nearly three-quarters of respondents cited the precious metal’s “long-term store of value” as a guiding factor in gold purchases.

Central banks added 463 MT of gold to their vaults in 2021, signaling a significant turnaround in demand after the 255 MT decade low experienced in 2020.

Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for Goldyoutu.be

The US Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 basis points last week in its ongoing fight against inflation, amping up its efforts to tame prices and leaving market watchers wondering what's next.

Speaking just ahead of the central bank's meeting, Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management, said usually the Fed starts out hawkish and then backs off. But this time around the opposite is happening.

This is due to various factors, but US President Joe Biden's recent meeting with Fed Chair Jerome Powell is among them — in their discussion, Biden expressed that inflation is the Fed's responsibility.
