Gowest Announces Latest Drill Results at Bradshaw

June 27, 2019

TORONTO, ONTARIO – (June 27, 2019) Gowest Gold Ltd. (“Gowest” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE:GWA) is pleased to announce assay results from the recently completed multi-purpose drill program at its 100% owned Bradshaw Gold Deposit (Bradshaw) within the Company’s North Timmins Gold Project (NTGP). The drill holes were designed to provide infill detail on stopes to be mined in the bulk sample area and to test recently identified, new high-grade gold zones to the north of the main deposit. This phase of the program included six holes and completed 1,024 metres (m) of underground drilling from the 45m Level.

Highlights:

  • Successfully intersected multiple gold horizons at north high-grade gold target
    • 1.9 m of 11.54 grams per tonne (g/t) gold intersected in hole BGM19-045-033
      • Including 1.5m grading 13.57 g/t gold
    • And 4.0 m of 4.6 g/t gold also in hole BGM19-045-033
      • Including 1.9 m grading 7.01 g/t gold

“We are very pleased with the results from the recent drilling at Bradshaw,” said Greg Romain, Gowest’s President and CEO. “Intersecting multiple gold horizons in a new area so close to the existing underground infrastructure speaks to the potential to add additional ounces to our resources and reserves at the project.” He added, “We are planning to start the next phase of drilling at the new north gold target soon.”

The north high-grade gold zone target was discovered in 2018 and is located approximately 25 m north of the Bradshaw Deposit. As previously announced, hole BGM17-045-012 intersected 4.2 m grading 20.91 g/t gold, including 1.9 m grading 42.15 g/t (see Gowest release dated February 12, 2018). Historical drilling at Bradshaw utilized southward oriented holes concentrated on the main zone mineralization, which is 150 to 200 m south of the north target area. Most historical holes were collared and started south of the new target zone, which has been confirmed with multiple northward oriented underground holes. Future drilling will define the extents of the North Bradshaw gold target in the vicinity of the underground drilling and aim to define a new mineral resource. The target area is open along strike and at depth. (See plan map below)

All six holes in the campaign provided infill detail at the Bradshaw Deposit within the area of the bulk sample. The holes intersected the gold mineralization as planned and two of the holes (BGM19-045-031 and BGM19-045-033) were drilled beyond the known deposit into the North Bradshaw gold target area. Both holes intersected multiple gold-bearing structures, which have the potential to add mineral resources to the Bradshaw deposit.
