 Granada Gold Mine Inc. (TSXV: GGM) (the "Company" or "Granada") is pleased to announced a 3 rd drill has started a new deep hole in the North-East of the property on the Big Claim. This hole is collared 1.4 km SE of hole GR-20-20, the REE and alkali metal discovery hole (GGM press release March 23, 2021 ) and 225m west of GR-20-22 which has shown the highest rare earth and alkali metals mineralization with assays pending.  With this drill hole, the company expects to cross the rare earth and alkali metals zone on its way to intersect the gold zone at depth as shown in Figure 1.  Significantly, in the northern sector of the property, the company intersected 13.7 gt Au over 1.5m at 662m in hole GR-18-04 and 8.25 gt Au over 1.5m at 784.5m in hole DUP-12-02-W1 near the Genesis Target in 2018. This is in line with the targeted underground grade of 4 grams per tonne.

The company has hired Forage Lamontagne-Fortier Inc. for a first 10,000 meters. The drill is rated for holes up to 2500 meters. In addition to potentially intersecting the new REE and Alkali metal findings, the company is still aiming to intersect the gold mineralization at depth.

This allows the two other drills of Forage Multi-Drilling to continue to develop the underground Mineral Resources under the recent pit constrained Mineral Resources (GGM press release Jan 29, 2021 ). The company is also drilling at an angle with Multi Drilling to define an underexplored area under the orphan tailings.

CEO Frank J. Basa , P.Eng., commented that "This 3 rd drill, with a 2500m depth capability, should allow us to reach the deep gold target. As we know the gold mineralization on the famous Cadillac Break did not come from the surface, as it comes from depth - we are hopefully heading towards the sweet spot on the property."

About Granada Gold Mine Inc.

Granada Gold Mine Inc. continues to develop the Granada Gold Property near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec . Approximately 120,000 meters of drilling has been completed to date on the property, focused mainly on the extended LONG Bars zone which trends 2 kilometers east-west over a potential 5.5 kilometers of mineralized structure. The highly prolific Cadillac Break, the source of more than 75 million plus ounces of gold production in the past century, cuts through the north part of the Granada property, but is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the company's property.

The Granada Shear Zone and the South Shear Zone contain, based on historical detailed mapping as well as from current and historical drilling, up to twenty-two mineralized structures trending east-west over five and a half kilometers. Three of these structures were mined historically from four shafts and three open pits. Historical underground grades were 8 to 10 grams per tonne gold from two shafts down to 236 m and 498 m with open pit grades from 3.5 to 5 grams per tonne gold.

Updated Mineral Resource

The updated resource at the Company's Granada Gold project in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec was estimated by SGS Canada and outlined in a January 29, 2021 news release.  The final report was filed March 15, 2021 with an Effective date of December 15, 2020 . The 43-101 Technical Report is titled: Granada Gold Project Mineral Resource Estimate Update, Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, Canada authored by Yann Camus , P.Eng. and Maxime Dupéré, B.Sc, géo.

Frank Holmes: Gold Advice as Price Falls — Buy the Dip and HODLyoutu.be

The gold price has tumbled since last week's US Federal Reserve meeting, which saw the central bank raise rates by 50 basis points for the first time since 2000 in an effort to combat inflation.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Frank Holmes, CEO and chief investment officer at US Global Investors (NASDAQ:GROW), pointed out that the yellow metal's decline is a buying opportunity.

"Buy the dip and hold on for dear life, as the crypto kids say — HODL," he said. HODL is a term that originated in the cryptocurrency community, although it’s since gained mainstream usage through popular memes.
