Gold Mountain Extends Permitted Drilling Zone and Begins Phase 2 Exploration Program

Gold Mountain Mining Corp. ("Gold Mountain" or the "Company") (TSXV:GMTN)(OTCQB:GMTNF)(FRA:5XFA) is pleased to announce it has received its Notice of Work ("NoW") permit, allowing it to expand its 2021 exploration program at its 100% owned Elk Gold Project. The NoW permits Gold Mountain to continue chasing it's deep, high-grade mineralization while exploring additional satellite zones throughout the property


  • Gold Mountain receives authorization for an expanded Phase 2 exploration program allowing it to drill outside the Siwash North Zone.
  • Phase 2 includes 10,000m of drilling and continues to relog high interest historical core.
  • The NoW allows the company to continue chasing the deep, high grade mineralization of the "Mother shoot" zone as well as other satellite regions of the property.

"This is fantastic news as we move into our next 10,000m drill program at the Elk," commented CEO, Kevin Smith. "With this Notice of Work, we now have a lot more optionality to target deep, high-grade zones, particularly down-dip of the 1300 vein. It also opens up other satellite areas we've identified as being highly prospective for vein extensions and new discoveries. In this Phase 2 program we have 5 holes planned for our elusive zone with the intention of developing a more bulk tonnage style resource, to compliment our high grade sulphide mineralization. Our focus remains to continue unlocking shareholder value by aggressively growing the Elk deposit, while rapidly moving through development and into commercial production. Stayed tuned for a very exciting second half of 2021 as we continue building out BC's next high grade Gold and Silver producer."

Notice of Work

The Company has received its Notice of Work ("NoW") from the Ministry of Energy Mines and Low Carbon Innovation, allowing them to transition to Phase 2 of their Drill program which targets areas outside the current Mine Permit Area in the south portion of the Siwash North Zone.

Previously, the Company could only drill within its Mine Permit boundaries, hindering its ability to target certain high-grade areas of the Elk Gold Project. With this milestone, Gold Mountain can move its drill pads further south of the Siwash North Zone, allowing the Company to explore high-interest satellite zones and continue chasing the 1300 vein deeper, targeting the high-grade mineralization at the Elk.

Phase 2 Exploration Program

In Phase 1 of Gold Mountain's drill program, the Company focused on the Siwash North Zone with predictable, step out and infill drilling to methodically add ounces to the resource. The Company hit significant mineralized intercepts in 100% of the 41 drill holes completed at the Siwash North Zone, including high-grade mineralization in the zone dubbed the "Mother Shoot" with grades reaching 124 g/t.

The 10,000m Phase 2 drill program targets extensions of high-grade mineralization the Company consistently encountered during its Phase 1 program. The image below presents a broad overview of the permitted zones and planned targets at Siwash North:

Elk Gold Project's Multi-Phased Drill Program

The Company is also drilling the Elusive Zone located approximately 4km from the Siwash North Zone where historic high-grade soil geochemical samples indicate promising new potential at the Elk Gold Project.

Phase 2 Re-Logging

The Company has begun the Phase 2 process of re-logging historic core, digitizing historic data and updating the geological interpretation. Given the past success of the Phase 1 re-logging of historical core, which unveiled undocumented core samples as high as 216 g/t, Gold Mountain plans to continue to relog and resample core from previous operators in areas identified as high-interest to the Company.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Reacts to New Inflation Data, Biden Admin Seeks US Mining Reforms

Gold saw peaks and troughs this week, falling as low as US$1,903 per ounce on Thursday (September 14) before recovering to about US$1,925 on Friday (September 15), level with its price at the start of the period.

The consumer price index (CPI) was in focus mid-week, with the latest data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics showing that it rose 0.6 percent month-on-month in August, the first time it's increased since February. On an annual basis CPI was up 3.7 percent, which was in line with estimates and the smallest uptick in about two years. Core CPI, which many experts believe is a more accurate gauge of inflation, was up 0.3 percent from July and 4.3 percent from the previous year.

The US Federal Reserve still has a 2 percent inflation target, which means it's hotter than the central bank would like. As the Fed gears up to meet from September 19 to 20, some market participants are wondering whether another hike is in the cards.
