Gold Mountain Hits Additional High-Grade Intercepts in its Phase 2 Drill Program

Gold Mountain Mining Corp. ("Gold Mountain" or the "Company") (TSX.V:GMTN)(OTCQB:GMTNF)(FRA:5XFA) is pleased to announce assay results from its Phase 2 drill program at the Elk Gold Project located near Merritt, BC. The high-grade assay results continue to extend the Siwash North zone's established mineralization down-dip and indicate clear vein continuity at depth near the project's open pits


  • Drilling Highlights Include:
    • 1.30m grading 10.59 g/t Au including 0.30m of 45.60 g/t Au
    • 1.10m grading 17.54 g/t Au including 0.50m of 31.10 g/t Au
    • 0.90m grading 14.59 g/t Au including 0.30m of 21.30 g/t Au
    • 1.40m grading 5.85 g/t Au including 0.40m of 19.30 g/t Au
  • Gold Mountain's Phase 2 drill program continues to methodically extend the Elk's shallow, open-pit amenable vein systems as well as its deeper, high-grade mineralization in the Siwash North Zone.
  • Phase 2 encapsulated the exploration of the Lake, South and Elusive zones, 3 of the other 9 drill tested mineralized zones on the property.
  • Based on the strong intercepts the Company struck early on in the program, Gold Mountain increased the total Phase 2 meterage by 30% from 10,000m to 13,000m.

"In Phase 1 we showed how impactful a well-planned and methodical drill program can be, as we increased our resource by 45% off an 8,700m program. Phase 2 continues this strategy of infilling and stepping out from the project's well-established mineralization and we're confident that assay results like these highlight intercepts will have a strong impact on our updated resource estimate due this fall" said Kevin Smith, CEO and Director of Gold Mountain. "Now that the mine is transitioning to commercial production, Gold Mountain's focus is to scale our resource through proceeds of mining and uphold our commitment of getting the Elk past a million ounces."

Phase 2 Drilling Program

Gold Mountain and its exploration contractor HEG & Associates ("HEG") followed the success of its Phase 1 drill program by continuing to perform infill and step-out drilling on its well-established vein systems in Siwash North. The highlight assays were intercepted along the 1300, 2600 and 2700 veins which extend to the west and are located in close proximity of the project's historical open pits.

The highlighted intercepts continue to demonstrate strong gold grades and lateral extensions in all three vein systems. By hitting significant mineralization, the Company continues to expand its vein models which are anticipated to add additional ounces to its planned resource estimate update this fall.

Due to the initial mineralization the Company intercepted in Siwash North, Gold Mountain added an additional 3,000 m of drilling to its Phase 2 exploration program, taking Phase 2's total drill meterage to 13,000 m.

In addition to Siwash North drilling, the Company explored an additional 3 mineralized satellite zones at the Elk Gold project during its Phase 2 program which include the Lake Zone, South Zone and the highly-prospective Elusive Zone. The Company expects to release assay results from these zones shortly.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Maintains Gains, Uranium Mania Still to Come

As the third week of the new year wraps up, gold's momentum remains strong. After breaking the US$1,900 per ounce mark last week, the yellow metal has kept above that level, ending Friday (January 20) around US$1,925.

December's producer price index (PPI) data was in the headlines this week, with a decline of 0.5 percent month-on-month and a year-on-year increase of 6.2 percent. The 0.5 percent fall was the largest since the start of the COVID-19.

The PPI looks at final demand prices across a wide variety of categories and is meant to measure inflation at the wholesale level. It's different from the consumer price index, which measures changes in the prices consumers pay for goods and services.

VIDEO — Jeffrey Christian: Gold, Silver Gaining Traction, 2023 Will be Year of Transition

Investors who backed away from precious metals in 2022 may be ready to re-enter the sector this year.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Jeffrey Christian, managing partner at CPM Group, said in the first few of weeks of the new year he's already seen better interest from institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals.

"If I'm right, what we'll see is a lot more rational investors saying, 'Gold and silver make sense in a diversified portfolio. I understand their loose relationship with interest rates, I understand their loose relationship with stocks and inflation and other factors — but I also understand that if I have gold and silver in my portfolio, I have a less volatile net wealth,'" he said.

Donlin Gold Announces Final Assay Results for 2022 Drill Program

Donlin Gold LLC ("Donlin Gold"), owned 50:50 by Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick") (TSX: ABX) (NYSE: GOLD) and NOVAGOLD RESOURCES INC. ("NOVAGOLD") (TSX, NYSE American: NG), is pleased to report the release of the final set of assay results from the 2022 drill program. The assay results for the final 44 drill holes and full 2022 drill program are reported in Table 2 in the Appendix.

The comprehensive 141-hole, 42,331-meter (m) drill program was safely and successfully completed ahead of schedule, under budget and included multiple high-grade gold intercepts reported from the latest set of assays. These include DC22-2130 that intersected 17.20 m grading 11.11 g/t gold, with a sub-interval of 4.25 m grading 36.91 g/t gold.

The results from the 2022 drill program reconcile favorably with the resource model as well as further support the global resource estimate and recent modelling concepts.

Donlin Gold continued to work in partnership with Alaska Native landowners Calista Corporation ("Calista") and The Kuskokwim Corporation (TKC) in stakeholder and government engagement in the Yukon-Kuskokwim (Y-K) region, Alaska, and Washington, D.C.

Environmental and social investment focused on the Y-K region included support for important health and safety initiatives in remote communities, cultural preservation efforts, and educational programming in collaboration with school districts and other organizations.

Donlin Gold continued to advance state permitting efforts, including the renewal of air and water permits in 2022.

With an increased appreciation of the geology, the experienced team will continue to focus on updating the resource model and completing trade-off studies — all of which are moving the Donlin Gold project up the value chain and leading toward an updated feasibility study decision.
