- TWO MAJOR STRUCTURES DISCOVERED BY LAKE IP SURVEY AND INITIAL DRILL HOLES
- SOUTH SHORE ANOMALY RELATED TO PYRITE SERICITE ZONE
- NORTH SHORE ANOMALY CONTAINS MASSIVE SULPHIDE BAND AND DISSEMINATED SULPHIDES IN SHEARS WITH OTHER ZONES OF SILICIFICATION-ALBITIZATION

Golden Goliath Resources is pleased to report that drilling of a new IP trend, partially generated by the survey on the frozen lake, has now been completed. Five holes (K21-17, 18, 19, 20, & 21 -see Fig. 5) have traced a sericite alteration zone with sections of intense silicification and sulphide content over 20%, for a 1.2 km distance between lines 1200E and 2400E. Some of this anomaly trend is on land and some sections are under the shore of the lake and in the bay adjacent to the West Grid. Those anomalies were generated by the IP survey conducted on the frozen lake (Fig. 2 & 3). It also extends westward from line 1200E across the water to line 600E on the West Grid. This anomaly is distinctive in shape and often shows a classic “pantleg” anomaly, a narrow chargeable anomaly near surface of 10m width. The south shore anomaly was tested first because the drill had already been moved to that area of the lake for access to water. Further infill drilling and undercut holes are anticipated for this trend once the access route has dried up and or refrozen.

The drill has been moved to the new and very strong north shore anomaly, which is referred to by the Company as “the Whale” for both its size and shape. This strong, large target, also generated by the lake ice IP survey, occurs on lines 1800E, 1600E, 1400E and 2000E (Figures 2, 3 & 4). At least four initial holes are planned for the Whale anomaly. At the time of writing of this release, the first of these drill holes, K21-22, was completed on line 1800E to a depth of 175m. The hole intersected a 7m wide disseminated sulphide zone in sheared basalt, a 2m wide zone silicified and albitized zone and also a 0.5m wide massive pyrite zone, that is conductive and explains the resistivity low seen in the IP section. Deeper holes are also being considered for this highly promising target. Drill hole K21-23 is being initiated at this time.
The north shore anomalies, which lie along the main Pakwash Break, are distinctive in that they have the highest metal factors of any IP anomaly on the Kwai property. This is the result of a resistivity low coinciding with a chargeability high, suggesting a high sulphide content. This particular section of the Pakwash Fault lies 1400m east-northeast of a cluster of till samples on the West Grid containing high amounts of gold grains (Fig 3), both pristine and slightly modified in nature. A sulphide host source for these gold grains is anticipated given the number of pristine grains occurring in the oxidized till layer, therefore making these IP anomalies of special interest being high metal factor anomalies.
Overall, the IP survey conducted on the ice of Lake Beauregard has been very successful in Identifying important, high priority, drill targets and improving our geological knowledge of the property.
Prior to the extensive break in operations (February 8 until March 1) caused by extreme cold weather and drill problems, two drill holes (K21-15 and K21-16), were completed on lines 4900E and 4700E, about 2.3km east of Beauregard lake. These two holes were the first of a set of five holes planned to test an IP target trend that lies just south of the main Pakwash break, a second set of five holes is planned to test the IP targets on the north, along the Pakwash Fault itself.
The two completed drill holes on the East Grid were discussed in the Company’s press release from March 4, 2021. The drill was set up for the third hole in this sequence on Line 5100E, however the unexpected break in operations left the machine there, but the drill hole uninitiated. During the cold weather break, the water supply for this and other holes in the area froze solid. That required postponing drilling on these two East Grid IP trends. Consequently, the drill was moved to the southeast shore of the lake on the Central Grid where an IP anomaly from the ground IP work needed testing and water was available. On the East Grid, K21-15 and K21-16 intersected a basalt sequence south of the Pakwash Fault containing disseminated pyrite and chalcopyrite. However, no significant gold values were found. Assay results for drill holes completed after the unexpected break are still pending. Other holes in this area of the East Grid are still on hold pending resumption of the water supply.
