Gold Mountain Mining Corp. (“Gold Mountain” or the “Company”) (TSX: GMTN, OTCQB: GMTNF, Frankfurt: 5XFA) is pleased to announce that it has filed the updated technical report (the “Technical Report”) on its 100% owned Elk Gold Project located 57 km from Merritt in South Central British Columbia. The Technical Report is being filed following Gold Mountain’s press releases dated December 7 2021 (the “Press Release”). Gold Mountain confirms there are no material differences in the results of the Technical Report and the information disclosed in the Press Releases.
Gold Mountain increases its resource estimate at its flagship Elk Gold Project to: 806,000 oz of Measured & Indicated Resources at 5.8 g/t AuEq and 262,000 oz of Inferred resource at 5.4 g/t AuEq.
The updated Resource Estimate represents a 24% increase of Measured and Indicated ounces and 65% increase of inferred ounces.
37 new diamond drill holes were completed in the Siwash North Zone which incrementally expanded the vein models along strike and down dip and connected the Siwash North Zone with the Gold Creek Zone, historically viewed as a satellite deposit.
10 diamond drill holes were completed in the Lake and South Zones leading to maiden Mineral Resource estimates in the two satellite zones which demonstrate the multiple zone potential for the Elk Gold Project.
This update to the mineral resources followed the Company’s successful Phase 2 drill program that consisted of 13,900 metres of diamond drilling where all 47 holes hit mineralization.
The resource update is following Gold Mountain’s 13,900m Phase 2 drill program which began in May and wrapped up in November. The Company continued to step out and infill its well established, high-grade intercepts in Siwash North, increasing the zone’s measured and indicated resource to 735,000oz at 5.9 g/t AuEq and inferred resource to 229,000oz at 5.4 g/t AuEq. This included drilling to the south of the Siwash North Zone which allowed the Company to merge the Gold Creek and Siwash North geological models.
Additionally, Gold Mountain continued exploring the property by drilling in known mineralized Satellite zones including; the Lake and South Zones. By leveraging and evaluating the historical drill data set for these zones, the Company was able to fill spatial data gaps and establish a combined maiden resource of 71,000oz measured and indicated at 4.3g/t AuEq and 33,000oz inferred at 5.7g/t AuEq.
Finally, the Company continued relogging the asset’s historical core that was drilled by previous owners of the property. HEG Exploration Services Inc. identified and sampled core from historical drill holes located in the Siwash North Zone which helped further refine the vein model interpretation and add additional veins to the geological model.
1 Elk Gold Resource Update – Summary
The table below summarizes the updated resource estimate at the Elk Gold Project:
Combined Elk Gold Property Mineral Resource (Pit-Constrained and Underground) Dec 2021 Au Au Ag Capped Equivalent Capped Classification Tonnes (g/t) AuEq (Oz) Measured 169,000 (g/t) (g/t) 10.4 10.3 10.9 56,000 Indicated 4,190,000 5.6 5.4 11.0 750,000 Measured + Indicated 4,359,000 5.8 5.6 11.0 806,000 Inferred 1,497,000 5.4 5.3 14.4 262,000
CIM definitions were followed for classification of Mineral Resources.
Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and have not demonstrated economic viability. Results are presented in-situ and undiluted. Mineral resources are reported at a cut-off grade of 0.3 g/t AuEq for pit-constrained resources and 3.0 g/t AuEq for underground resources. The number of tonnes and metal ounces are rounded to the nearest thousand. The Resource Estimate includes both gold and silver assays. The formula used to combine the metals is: AuEq = ((Au_Cap*53.20*0.96) + (Ag_Cap*0.67*0.86))/(53.20*0.96) The Resource Estimate is effective as of October 21, 2021.
Mineral Resource Estimate Assumptions
For details relating to data verification, key assumptions and parameters and methods used for the Resource Estimate, please see the Technical Report a copy of which is filed on Gold Mountain’s SEDAR Profile.
