  • 28.0m @ 1.51 g/t Au from 580.0m depth in MMD-22-046, including
    • 11.0m @ 3.45 g/t Au from 587.0m
  • 9.75m @ 1.78 g/t Au from 282.55m depth in MMD-22-047
  • 34.25m @ 1.03 g/t Au from 209.0m depth in MMD-22-049, including
    • 3.8m @ 6.98 g/t Au from 239.45m

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “As we have been discussing for some time, the continued results of intersecting wide zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization underpin our belief that the Moss Lake Deposit has potential to develop an initial high-grade phase 1 open pit within the larger low-grade open pit operation. It can be seen that the projected grade shell of +1.0 g/t Au is significant at this early stage, and we will look to further explore these high grade areas, as we continue with our program.”

Approximate collar coordinates in NAD 83, Zone 15N

Results have been received for five holes that have infilled areas of the Main Zone that are between sections drilled by historic holes with collar survey problems. As a result, they will replace the low-confidence historic holes in the upcoming resource model update.

As with the historic holes, these holes intersected several broad zones of low-grade mineralization within the altered diorite intrusion host. Examples include 41.0m @ 0.79 g/t Au from 439.0m depth and 46.75m @ 0.46 g/t Au from 519.0m in MMD-22-041; 88.0m @ 0.48 g/t Au from 388.0m in MMD-22-042; 46.0m @ 0.82 g/t Au from 65.0m39.55m @ 0.71 g/t Au from 306.45m and 74.65m @ 0.66 g/t Au from 421.9m in MMD-22-046; 63.0m @ 0.37 g/t Au from 141.9m and 51.35m @ 0.73 g/t Au from 282.55m in MMD-22-047; and 57.0m @ 0.51 g/t Au from 353.0m in MMD-22-049. The long intercept in MMD-22-051 of 192.75m @ 1.02 g/t Au from 94.45m is similar but higher grade.

All these low-grade zones occur as envelopes to higher-grade structures that form a three-dimensional, anastomosing shear network that has developed in response to strain on the altered diorite intrusion. Results include the broad zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization shown in the highlights (e.g., 192.75m @ 1.02 g/t Au from 94.45m depth in MMD-22-051) and several narrow high-grade intervals, including 1.0m @ 9.14 g/t Au from 449.0m depth in MMD-22-041; 1.0m @ 12.7 g/t Au from 441.0m, 0.9m @ 9.99 g/t Au from 468.1m and 1.0m @ 16.6 g/t Au from 587.0m in MMD-22-046; 0.85m @ 5.93 g/t Au from 290.7m in MMD-22-047; 0.45m @ 8.22 g/t Au from 30.55m, 0.75m @ 12.0 g/t Au from 421.25m, 0.55m @ 9.93 g/t Au from 306.95m and 0.65m @ 15.1 g/t Au from 365.35m in MMD-22-049; and 1.0m @ 14.0 g/t Au from 159.0m and 1.0m @ 10.6 g/t Au from 256.0m in MMD-22-051.

Geological modelling of the altered diorite host rock and anastomosing shear network has progressed faster than anticipated and is nearly complete. The new model will enable the interpolation of low and high-grade gold populations within constraining wireframes, which we expect will provide a more accurate estimation of the gold distribution and, therefore, the contained gold resource.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said, “These drill results confirm our contention that there are coherent zones of +1 g/t Au gold mineralization with a “sea” of low grade mineralization that should allow for the generation of a smaller, higher-grade resource at the Moss Lake Project. Drilling around these higher grade zones continues.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

All samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Thunder Bay for preparation and analysis was performed in the ALS Vancouver analytical facility. ALS is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for the Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories and CAN-P-4E ISO/IEC 17025. Samples were analyzed for gold via fire assay with an AA finish (“Au-AA23”) and 48 pathfinder elements via ICP-MS after four-acid digestion (“ME-MS61”). Samples that assayed over 10 ppm Au were re-run via fire assay with a gravimetric finish (“Au-GRA21”).

In addition to ALS quality assurance / quality control (“QA/QC”) protocols, Goldshore has implemented a quality control program for all samples collected through the drilling program. The quality control program was designed by a qualified and independent third party, with a focus on the quality of analytical results for gold. Analytical results are received, imported to our secure on-line database and evaluated to meet our established guidelines to ensure that all sample batches pass industry best practice for analytical quality control. Certified reference materials are considered acceptable if values returned are within three standard deviations of the certified value reported by the manufacture of the material. In addition to the certified reference material, certified blank material is included in the sample stream to monitor contamination during sample preparation. Blank material results are assessed based on the returned gold result being less than ten times the quoted lower detection limit of the analytical method. The results of the on-going analytical quality control program are evaluated and reported to Goldshore by Orix Geoscience Inc.

About Goldshore

Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome is currently a large shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 27% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

The Moss Lake Gold Project is located approximately 100 km west of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is accessed via Highway 11 which passes within 1 km of the property boundary to the north. The Moss Lake Gold Project covers 14,292 hectares and consists of 282 unpatented and patented mining claims.

The Moss Lake Gold Project hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 3), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 4), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment (the “Moss Lake Historical Estimate“) was completed on the Moss Lake Gold Project in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (“Moss Lake Gold Mines“)1,3. A historical mineral resource estimate (the “East Coldstream Historical Estimate“) was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc.2,3 In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (“Wesdome“), which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

The historically producing North Coldstream Mine is reported to have produced significant amounts of copper, gold and silver4 from mineralization with potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. The exploration potential immediately surrounding the historic mining area is not currently well understood and historic data compilation is required.

The Hamlin Zone is a significant occurrence of copper and gold mineralization, and also of potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. Between 2008 and 2011, Glencore tested Hamlin with 24 drill holes which successfully outlined a broad and intermittently mineralized zone over a strike length of 900 m. Historic drill hole highlights from the Hamlin Zone include 0.9 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu over 150.7 m in HAM-11-75.

The Moss Lake, East Coldstream and North Coldstream deposits sit on a mineral trend marked by a regionally significant deformation zone locally referred to as the Wawiag Fault Zone in the area of the Moss Lake Deposit. This deformation zone occurs over a length of approximately 20 km on the Moss Lake Gold Project and there is an area spanning approximately 7 km between the Moss Lake and East Coldstream deposits that is significantly underexplored.

The qualified persons for the Moss Lake Historical Estimate are Pierre-Luc Richard, MSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and Carl Pelletier, BSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and the effective date of the Moss Lake Historical Estimate is February 8, 2013. In-Pit results are presented undiluted and in situ, within Whittle-optimized pit shells. Underground results are presented undiluted and in situ, outside Whittle-optimized pit shells. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate includes 18 gold-bearing zones and 1 envelope containing isolated gold intercepts. Whittle parameters: mining cost = C$2.28; pit slope angle = 50.0 degrees; production cost = C$9.55; mining Dilution = 5%; mining recovery = 95%; processing recovery = 80% to 85%; gold price = C$1,500. In-Pit and Underground resources were compiled at cut-off grades from 0.3 to 5.0 g/t Au (for sensitivity characterization). A cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au was selected as the official in-pit cut-off grade and a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au was selected as the official underground cut-off grade. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate is based on 352 diamond drill holes (90,978 m) drilled from 1983 and 2008. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. A minimum true thickness of 5.0 m was applied, using the grade of the adjacent material when assayed or a value of zero when not assayed. Capping was established at 35 g/t Au, supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Gems version 6.4. Based on geostatistics, the ellipse range for interpolation was 75m x 67.5m x 40m. The Indicated category is defined by combining the blocks within the two main zones and various statistical criteria, such as average distance to composites, distance to closest composite, quantity of drill holes within the search area. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on a 0.4 g/t Au cut-off grade. The qualified persons for the East Coldstream Historical Estimate are Todd McCracken, P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and Jeff Wilson, Ph.D., P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and the effective date of the East Coldstream Historical Estimate is December 12, 2011. Resources are presented unconstrained, undiluted and in situ. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate includes 2 gold-bearing zones. A cut-off grade of 0.4 g/t Au was selected as the official resource cut-off grade. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on 116 diamond drill holes drilled from 1986 to 2011. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. Capping was established at 5.89 g/t Au and 5.70 g/t Au for domains EC-1 and EC-2, respectively. This is supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Datamine Studio 3 version 3.20.5321.0. Resource categorization is based on spatial continuity based from the variography of the assays within the drillholes. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

(3) The reader is cautioned that the Moss Lake Historical Estimate East and the East Coldstream Historical Estimate (the “Historical Estimates“) are considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. The reader is cautioned not to treat them, or any part of them, as current mineral resources or reserves. The Company has determined these historical resources are reliable, and relevant to be included here in that they demonstrate simply the mineral potential of the Moss Lake Gold Project. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimates as current resources and Goldshore is not treating the Historical Estimates as current resources. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the Historical Estimates can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that any of the historical mineral resources, in whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category. The Historical Estimates relating to inferred mineral resources were calculated using prior mining industry standard definitions and practices for estimating mineral resource and mineral reserves. Such prior definitions and practices were utilized prior to the implementation of the current standards of the Canadian Institute of Mining for mineral resource estimation, and have a lower level of confidence.

Goldshore Announces Strong Initial Drilling Results from the East Coldstream Deposit 13 Kilometers Northeast of Moss Lake

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 12, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF)  (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from eight holes drilled to test gold mineralization at the East Coldstream deposit at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Moss Lake Gold Project“).

Highlights:

  • Results for eight holes, drilled to better define the gold mineralization of the East Coldstream deposit, have confirmed three broad lenses of gold mineralization within the two main shear zones with best intercepts of:
  • 23m @ 1.34 g/t Au from 244m depth in CED-22-004, including
    • 7.35m @ 3.77 g/t Au from 254.2m
  • 17.3m @ 1.55 g/t Au from 487m depth in CED-22-005

  • 20m @ 1.15 g/t Au from 402m depth in CED-22-006
  • 26m @ 1.66 g/t Au from 451m, including
    • 7.9m @ 4.20 g/t Au from 465m
  • 25.7m @ 2.07 g/t Au from 488m
  • 37.05m @ 1.54 g/t Au from 209.3m depth in CED-22-007
  • 27.9m @ 1.14 g/t Au from 387m depth in CED-22-008, including
    • 13m @ 2.14 g/t Au from 401m
  • The better intercepts are all centered around five high-grade gold zones of mineralized breccia, including:
  • 1.05m @ 15.8 g/t Au from 257.95m depth in CED-22-004
  • 0.9m @ 14.3 g/t Au from 472m depth in CED-22-006, and
  • 0.65m @ 13.5 g/t Au from 502m
  • 0.85m @ 10.6 g/t Au from 244.35m depth in CED-22-007, and
  • 0.4m @ 12.6 g/t Au from 418m
  • These results show that the three gold mineralized lenses have a clear steep plunge and highlight significant upside potential at depth within structurally controlled shoots.

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “These first results are extremely encouraging and significant to the overarching strategy of developing a secondary resource to Moss Lake. This will provide optionality that can only help improve the new PEA study next yearThe results also point to a second significant project within our land package, which highlights the potential for further discoveries.”

Results have been received for eight of the initial 17 holes in the first pass drilling program at East Coldstream. These drillholes tested the existing mineralized lenses, as well as possible eastern and down-dip extensions.

Our work on the mineralization paragenesis and its structural controls has shown that gold mineralization is related to pervasive silica-hematite alteration and sulfide veining associated with an extensional brecciation event following extensive shearing. At the deposit scale, this formed three lenticular bodies within two main shear zones (Figure 1). Based on structural measurements from oriented core, each body has a steeply west-dipping plunge and a gently east-pitching stretching lineation that creates an internal fabric to mineralization (Figure 4). This structural control creates the potential for additional high-grade mineralization to occur below the shallowly drilled portions of the shears zones such as encountered in CED-22-007.

CED-22-001 and -002 tested a similar geophysical feature to the east of the East Coldstream deposit. CED-22-001 was drilled closest to East Coldstream and encountered narrow zones of mineralization, while CED-22-002 was drilled 300 meters further east and did not encounter significant results. This sterilizes the immediate extension, but given the lenticular geometry of mineralization, leaves open the prospectively of the structure further to the east.

CED-22-003 and -004 drilled the North and Main Lenses, respectively. Both holes intersected broad low-grade mineralized zones, including 19.15m @ 0.61 g/t Au from 269.55m in CED-22-003; and 48m @ 0.39 g/t Au from 168m and 23m @ 1.34 g/t Au in CED-22-004.

Holes CED-22-005 to -008 tested down plunge extensions of the known mineralization. All holes intersected variable widths of higher grade mineralization, including 17.3m @ 1.55 g/t Au from 487m in CED-22-005; 20.0m @ 1.15 g/t Au from 402m, 26.0m @ 1.66 g/t Au from 451m, and 25.7m @ 2.07 g/t Au from 488m in CED-22-006; 37.05m @ 1.54 g/t Au from 209.3m in CED-22-007; and 27.9m @ 1.14 g/t Au from 387m in CED-22-008.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said “Our analysis of drill results at East Coldstream confirms the two parallel shear zones that were modelled in the past. The recognition of a greater structural control within these shears has led to the modelling of three steeply dipping lenticular shoots that remain open at depth. A gently dipping internal fabric suggests that mineralization is focused within discrete structures that may allow us to model a higher-grade resource than exists in the historic estimate.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

All samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Thunder Bay for preparation and analysis was performed in the ALS Vancouver analytical facility. ALS is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for the Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories and CAN-P-4E ISO/IEC 17025. Samples were analyzed for gold via fire assay with an AA finish (“Au-AA23”) and 48 pathfinder elements via ICP-MS after four-acid digestion (“ME-MS61”). Samples that assayed over 10 ppm Au were re-run via fire assay with a gravimetric finish (“Au-GRA21”).

In addition to ALS quality assurance / quality control (“QA/QC”) protocols, Goldshore has implemented a quality control program for all samples collected through the drilling program. The quality control program was designed by a qualified and independent third party, with a focus on the quality of analytical results for gold. Analytical results are received, imported to our secure on-line database and evaluated to meet our established guidelines to ensure that all sample batches pass industry best practice for analytical quality control. Certified reference materials are considered acceptable if values returned are within three standard deviations of the certified value reported by the manufacture of the material. In addition to the certified reference material, certified blank material is included in the sample stream to monitor contamination during sample preparation. Blank material results are assessed based on the returned gold result being less than ten times the quoted lower detection limit of the analytical method. The results of the on-going analytical quality control program are evaluated and reported to Goldshore by Orix Geoscience Inc.

About Goldshore

Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (“Wesdome“), is currently a large shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 27% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

The Moss Lake Gold Project is located approximately 100 km west of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is accessed via Highway 11 which passes within 1 km of the property boundary to the north. The Moss Lake Gold Project covers 14,292 hectares and consists of 282 unpatented and patented mining claims.

The Moss Lake Gold Project hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 3), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 4), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment (the “Moss Lake Historical Estimate“) was completed on the Moss Lake Gold Project in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (“Moss Lake Gold Mines“)1,3. A historical mineral resource estimate (the “East Coldstream Historical Estimate“) was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc.2,3 In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome, which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

The historically producing North Coldstream Mine is reported to have produced significant amounts of copper, gold and silver4 from mineralization with potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. The exploration potential immediately surrounding the historic mining area is not currently well understood and historic data compilation is required.

The Hamlin Zone is a significant occurrence of copper and gold mineralization, and also of potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. Between 2008 and 2011, Glencore tested Hamlin with 24 drill holes which successfully outlined a broad and intermittently mineralized zone over a strike length of 900 m. Historic drill hole highlights from the Hamlin Zone include 0.9 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu over 150.7 m in HAM-11-75.

The Moss Lake, East Coldstream and North Coldstream deposits sit on a mineral trend marked by a regionally significant deformation zone locally referred to as the Wawiag Fault Zone in the area of the Moss Lake Deposit. This deformation zone occurs over a length of approximately 20 km on the Moss Lake Gold Project and there is an area spanning approximately 7 km between the Moss Lake and East Coldstream deposits that is significantly underexplored.

The qualified persons for the Moss Lake Historical Estimate are Pierre-Luc Richard, MSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and Carl Pelletier, BSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and the effective date of the Moss Lake Historical Estimate is February 8, 2013. In-Pit results are presented undiluted and in situ, within Whittle-optimized pit shells. Underground results are presented undiluted and in situ, outside Whittle-optimized pit shells. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate includes 18 gold-bearing zones and 1 envelope containing isolated gold intercepts. Whittle parameters: mining cost = C$2.28; pit slope angle = 50.0 degrees; production cost = C$9.55; mining Dilution = 5%; mining recovery = 95%; processing recovery = 80% to 85%; gold price = C$1,500. In-Pit and Underground resources were compiled at cut-off grades from 0.3 to 5.0 g/t Au (for sensitivity characterization). A cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au was selected as the official in-pit cut-off grade and a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au was selected as the official underground cut-off grade. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate is based on 352 diamond drill holes (90,978 m) drilled from 1983 and 2008. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. A minimum true thickness of 5.0 m was applied, using the grade of the adjacent material when assayed or a value of zero when not assayed. Capping was established at 35 g/t Au, supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Gems version 6.4. Based on geostatistics, the ellipse range for interpolation was 75m x 67.5m x 40m. The Indicated category is defined by combining the blocks within the two main zones and various statistical criteria, such as average distance to composites, distance to closest composite, quantity of drill holes within the search area. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

(Tetratech Wardrop), and Jeff Wilson, Ph.D., P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and the effective date of the East Coldstream Historical Estimate is December 12, 2011. Resources are presented unconstrained, undiluted and in situ. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate includes 2 gold-bearing zones. A cut-off grade of 0.4 g/t Au was selected as the official resource cut-off grade. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on 116 diamond drill holes drilled from 1986 to 2011. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. Capping was established at 5.89 g/t Au and 5.70 g/t Au for domains EC-1 and EC-2, respectively. This is supported by statistical analysis and the high-grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Datamine Studio 3 version 3.20.5321.0. Recource categorization is based on spatial continuity based from the variography of the assays within the drillholes. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.
  3. The reader is cautioned that the Moss Lake Historical Estimate East and the East Coldstream Historical Estimate (the “Historical Estimates“) are considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. The reader is cautioned not to treat them, or any part of them, as current mineral resources or reserves. The Company has determined these historical resources are reliable, and relevant to be included here in that they demonstrate simply the mineral potential of the Moss Lake Gold Project. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimates as current resources and Goldshore is not treating the Historical Estimates as current resources. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the Historical Estimates can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that any of the historical mineral resources, in whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category. The Historical Estimates relating to inferred mineral resources were calculated using prior mining industry standard definitions and practices for estimating mineral resource and mineral reserves. Such prior definitions and practices were utilized prior to the implementation of the current standards of the Canadian Institute of Mining for mineral resource estimation, and have a lower level of confidence.

Goldshore Intersects 29.05m @ 2.99 g/t Au in 100m Down-dip Step-out

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 8, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Moss Lake Gold Project“).

Highlights:

  • Results for eight holes, drilled to infill historic but poorly surveyed drill sections in the Main Zone, have confirmed high-grade gold mineralization within a large volume of well mineralized diorite with best intercepts of:
    • 29.05m @ 2.99 g/t Au from 478.6m depth in MMD-22-045, including
      • 13.5m @ 6.08 g/t Au from 481.25m
    • 16.4m @ 1.87 g/t Au from 415.6m depth in MMD-22-033, including
      • 6.65m @ 4.09 g/t Au from 416.15m
    • 5.85m @ 3.47 g/t Au from 110m depthin MMD-22-034
    • 17.0m @ 1.44 g/t Au from 58m depth in MMD-22-039, including
      • 14.45m @ 1.63 g/t Au from 58.55m
    • 18.0m @ 1.43 g/t Au from 354m depth, including
      • 6.7m @ 3.37 g/t Au from 365.3m
    • 22.65m @ 1.59 g/t Au from 344.15m depth in MMD-22-040
  • The better intercepts are all centered around twelve very high-grade gold zones that represent the axis of the shear network, including:
    • 1.0m @ 22.0 g/t Au from 418m in MMD-22-033,
    • 1.0m @ 17.7 g/t Au from 349m in MMD-22-040, and
    • 0.75m @ 88.6 g/t Au from 481.25m in MMD-22-045

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “We continue to intersect wide zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization that underpin our belief that the Moss Lake Deposit has potential to develop an initial high-grade phase 1 open pit within the larger low-grade open pit operation. It can be seen that the projected grade shell of +1.0 g/t Au is significant at this early stage, and we will look to expand upon these exploration results, as we continue with our program.”

The Goldshore team has obtained sufficient quality drill information, along with oriented core data, to generate working models of the grade distribution using implicit modelling algorithms. These show coherent high grade structural zones that reflect the three dimensional anastomosing shear network, which are projected to surface in the following figures.

Table 1 shows the significant intercepts. Table 2 and Figure 1 show the drill hole locations. Figure 2 shows the better intercepts and Figure 3 is a typical section through holes MMD-22-040 and -045.

Approximate collar coordinates in NAD 83, Zone 15N

Results have been received for eight holes that have infilled areas of the Main Zone that are between sections drilled by historic holes with collar survey problems. As a result, they will replace the low-confidence historic holes in the upcoming resource model update.

MMD-22-043 was terminated early as it hit the old underground exploration decline. MMD-22-045 was drilled at slightly different azimuth to intersect the volume targeted by hole -043.

As with the historic holes, these holes intersected several broad zones of low-grade mineralization within the altered diorite intrusion host. Examples include 105m @ 0.43 g/t Au from 329m depth and 63.0m @ 0.42 g/t Au from 539m depth in MMD-22-038; 58.05m @ 0.86 g/t Au from 319.45m depth in MMD-22-040; 20.8m @ 0.97 g/t Au from 130.2m depth and 93.05m @ 0.49 g/t Au from 256.3m depth in MMD-22-044; and 67.5m @ 0.44 g/t Au from 243m depth and 41.0m @ 0.70 g/t Au from 656m depth in MMD-22-045.

All these low-grade zones occur as envelopes to higher-grade structures that form a three-dimensional, anastomosing shear network that has developed in response to strain on the altered diorite intrusion. Results include the broad zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization shown in the highlights (e.g., 29.05m @ 2.99 g/t Au from 478.6m depth in MMD-22-045) and several narrow high-grade intervals, including 0.5m @ 18.5 g/t Au from 34m and 1.0m @ 22.0 g/t Au from 418m in MMD-22-033; 0.6m @ 21.0 g/t Au from 113.4m in MMD-22-034; 0.9m @ 10.6 g/t Au from 332.85m in MMD-22-038; 0.4m @ 25.2 g/t Au from 366.2m in MMD-22-039; 1.0m @ 17.7 g/t Au from 349m in MMD-22-040; 0.35m @ 10.3 g/t Au from 261.95m and 0.55m @ 10.6 g/t Au from 395.7m in MMD-22-042; 0.5m @ 15.2 g/t Au from 24m, 1.0m @ 12.3 g/t Au from 138.8m and 0.85m @ 15.6 g/t Au from 260.8m in MMD-22-044; and 0.75m @ 88.6 g/t Au from 481.25m in MMD-22-045.

Geological modelling of the altered diorite host rock and anastomosing shear network has commenced. It will continue for the next three months as we continue with our campaigns of active drilling and relogging of historic drill core. The final model will enable the interpolation of low and high-grade gold populations within constraining wireframes, which should provide a more accurate estimation of the gold distribution and, therefore, the contained gold resource.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said, “These drill results confirm the excellent results that we are receiving from our 100,000-meter drill program. All results received to date confirm our improved understanding of geological controls, which shows grade decreasing away from a network of anastomosing shears. This has enabled us to more accurately model high-grade gold zones within the deposit using an implicit modelling algorithm.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

All samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Thunder Bay for preparation and analysis was performed in the ALS Vancouver analytical facility. ALS is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for the Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories and CAN-P-4E ISO/IEC 17025. Samples were analyzed for gold via fire assay with an AA finish (“Au-AA23“) and 48 pathfinder elements via ICP-MS after four-acid digestion (“ME-MS61“). Samples that assayed over 10 ppm Au were re-run via fire assay with a gravimetric finish (“Au-GRA21“).

In addition to ALS quality assurance / quality control (“QA/QC”) protocols, Goldshore has implemented a quality control program for all samples collected through the drilling program. The quality control program was designed by a qualified and independent third party, with a focus on the quality of analytical results for gold. Analytical results are received, imported to our secure on-line database and evaluated to meet our established guidelines to ensure that all sample batches pass industry best practice for analytical quality control. Certified reference materials are considered acceptable if values returned are within three standard deviations of the certified value reported by the manufacture of the material. In addition to the certified reference material, certified blank material is included in the sample stream to monitor contamination during sample preparation. Blank material results are assessed based on the returned gold result being less than ten times the quoted lower detection limit of the analytical method. The results of the on-going analytical quality control program are evaluated and reported to Goldshore by Orix Geoscience Inc.

About Goldshore

Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. is currently a large shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 27% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

The Moss Lake Gold Project is located approximately 100 km west of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is accessed via Highway 11 which passes within 1 km of the property boundary to the north. The Moss Lake Gold Project covers 14,292 hectares and consists of 282 unpatented and patented mining claims.

The Moss Lake Gold Project hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 3), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 4), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment (the “Moss Lake Historical Estimate“) was completed on the Moss Lake Gold Project in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (“Moss Lake Gold Mines“)1,3. A historical mineral resource estimate (the “East Coldstream Historical Estimate“) was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc.2,3 In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (“Wesdome“), which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

The historically producing North Coldstream Mine is reported to have produced significant amounts of copper, gold and silver4 from mineralization with potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. The exploration potential immediately surrounding the historic mining area is not currently well understood and historic data compilation is required.

The Hamlin Zone is a significant occurrence of copper and gold mineralization, and also of potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. Between 2008 and 2011, Glencore tested Hamlin with 24 drill holes which successfully outlined a broad and intermittently mineralized zone over a strike length of 900 m. Historic drill hole highlights from the Hamlin Zone include 0.9 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu over 150.7 m in HAM-11-75.

The Moss Lake, East Coldstream and North Coldstream deposits sit on a mineral trend marked by a regionally significant deformation zone locally referred to as the Wawiag Fault Zone in the area of the Moss Lake Deposit. This deformation zone occurs over a length of approximately 20 km on the Moss Lake Gold Project and there is an area spanning approximately 7 km between the Moss Lake and East Coldstream deposits that is significantly underexplored.

The qualified persons for the Moss Lake Historical Estimate are Pierre-Luc Richard, MSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and Carl Pelletier, BSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and the effective date of the Moss Lake Historical Estimate is February 8, 2013. In-Pit results are presented undiluted and in situ, within Whittle-optimized pit shells. Underground results are presented undiluted and in situ, outside Whittle-optimized pit shells. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate includes 18 gold-bearing zones and 1 envelope containing isolated gold intercepts. Whittle parameters: mining cost = C$2.28; pit slope angle = 50.0 degrees; production cost = C$9.55; mining Dilution = 5%; mining recovery = 95%; processing recovery = 80% to 85%; gold price = C$1,500. In-Pit and Underground resources were compiled at cut-off grades from 0.3 to 5.0 g/t Au (for sensitivity characterization). A cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au was selected as the official in-pit cut-off grade and a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au was selected as the official underground cut-off grade. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate is based on 352 diamond drill holes (90,978 m) drilled from 1983 and 2008. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. A minimum true thickness of 5.0 m was applied, using the grade of the adjacent material when assayed or a value of zero when not assayed. Capping was established at 35 g/t Au, supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Gems version 6.4. Based on geostatistics, the ellipse range for interpolation was 75m x 67.5m x 40m. The Indicated category is defined by combining the blocks within the two main zones and various statistical criteria, such as average distance to composites, distance to closest composite, quantity of drill holes within the search area. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

(3) The reader is cautioned that the Moss Lake Historical Estimate East and the East Coldstream Historical Estimate (the “Historical Estimates“) are considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. The reader is cautioned not to treat them, or any part of them, as current mineral resources or reserves. The Company has determined these historical resources are reliable, and relevant to be included here in that they demonstrate simply the mineral potential of the Moss Lake Gold Project. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimates as current resources and Goldshore is not treating the Historical Estimates as current resources. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the Historical Estimates can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that any of the historical mineral resources, in whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category. The Historical Estimates relating to inferred mineral resources were calculated using prior mining industry standard definitions and practices for estimating mineral resource and mineral reserves. Such prior definitions and practices were utilized prior to the implementation of the current standards of the Canadian Institute of Mining for mineral resource estimation, and have a lower level of confidence.

Goldshore Sampling of Historic Core Expands Mineralization with 104.2m at 1.04 g/t Au and Identifies New Parallel Zone

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – August 23, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from previously unsampled historic drill core at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Moss Lake Gold Project”).

Goldshore’s team has retrieved historical core that remains on the Moss Lake Gold Project where the drill collars have been recovered and accurately surveyed. Prior operators selectively sampled core that fit with the model used at the time. This core is now being relogged and sampled by Goldshore. This presents an excellent, cost-effective opportunity for Goldshore to generate significant results without new drilling, particularly in those holes that coincide with Goldshore’s identified targets. This news release presents results from six such historical holes where sampling by prior operators was incomplete.

Highlights:

  • Sampling of unsampled sections of two historic drill holes at the QES Zone have increased the width and grade of gold mineralization over that previously reported. The expanded intercepts include:
    • 104.2m @ 1.04 g/t Au from 422.0m in NS247, including
      • 19.40m @ 2.66 g/t Au from 458.6m
      • This section includes the visible gold reported on April 19, 2022
      • The hole ended in mineralization
    • 56.1m @ 0.42 g/t Au from 493.5m in NS248
  • Sampling has also identified a new southern parallel zone that was previously unrecognized, including:
    • 9.30m @ 1.28 g/t Au from 244.6m depth, including
      • 0.9m @ 10.95 g/t from 253.0m
    • 0.9m @ 35.7 g/t Au from 271.65m and
    • 78.45m @ 0.35 g/t Au from 331.55m in NS247
    • 69.10m @ 0.49 g/t Au from 413.0m in NS248
  • Additional sampling of four drillholes assessing regional prospects confirmed initial results.

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “All of the work we have conducted at Moss Lake, whether new drilling results or sampling and analysis of the historic drilling, all indicates that the extent of mineralization is far greater than the footprint of the historical resource. These results indicate yet another parallel zone of mineralization not previously identified and will provide new high quality drill targets in the future; as well as meaningful data when conducting the resource estimation.”

Results have been received for six historical holes that were incompletely sampled in the past and have now been more completely sampled to fully assess the intersected mineralized zones. Two holes (NS247 and NS248) targeted the QES Zone and four holes (ML-02-006, ML-04-016, ML-04-017, and ML-04-018) tested regional prospects south of the Moss Lake Project.

Assays from new sampling at NS247 and NS248 have expanded the widths of the known mineralized intercepts and identified a new parallel zone to the south of QES. They show that gold mineralization at Moss Lake is wider than previously believed and contains additional higher-grade structures beyond that defined by historic drilling. Step back drilling of the QES Zone has begun to determine the extent of the new parallel zones south of the QES Zone.

The broad zone of 104.2m @ 1.04 g/t Au from 422.0m in NS247 compares to an historic interval of 104.2m @ 0.88 g/t Au if the unsampled intervals are assigned zero grade, which seems to be what previous geologists thought. Similarly, the interval 56.1m @ 0.42 g/t Au from 493.5m in NS248 compares to an historic interval of 56.1m @ 0.31 g/t Au.

The high-grade section of NS247(19.40m @ 2.66 g/t Au from 458.6m) includes a narrow quartz-pyrite-chalcopyrite vein zone with visible gold that was reported on April 19, 2022. Surprisingly, this interval returned only 0.3m @ 1.01 g/t Au from 546.8m highlighting the nuggetty nature of gold mineralization. The drill hole ended in gold mineralization suggesting that the mineralized zone is wider.

Infill sampling of ML-04-016 and ML-04-018 yielded minor increases to the width of historic intercepts. No additional mineralized zones were identified in any of the four holes.

Several additional holes have been identified as having unsampled intervals within mineralized drill core. Historical core archives are being reexamined to locate, identify, and recover drill core for further infill sampling.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said “These drill results confirm our contention that previous explorers did not assess the full scale of gold mineralization at Moss Lake. As such, Moss Lake holds significant potential to be a larger gold system. Our assessment of historic drill core will continue in parallel with our 100,000-meter drill program.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

All samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Thunder Bay for preparation and analysis was performed in the ALS Vancouver analytical facility. ALS is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for the Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories and CAN-P-4E ISO/IEC 17025. Samples were analyzed for gold via fire assay with an AA finish (“Au-AA23”) and 48 pathfinder elements via ICP-MS after four-acid digestion (“ME-MS61”). Samples that assayed over 10 ppm Au were re-run via fire assay with a gravimetric finish (“Au-GRA21”).

In addition to ALS quality assurance / quality control (“QA/QC”) protocols, Goldshore has implemented a quality control program for all samples collected through the drilling program. The quality control program was designed by a qualified and independent third party, with a focus on the quality of analytical results for gold. Analytical results are received, imported to our secure on-line database and evaluated to meet our established guidelines to ensure that all sample batches pass industry best practice for analytical quality control. Certified reference materials are considered acceptable if values returned are within three standard deviations of the certified value reported by the manufacture of the material. In addition to the certified reference material, certified blank material is included in the sample stream to monitor contamination during sample preparation. Blank material results are assessed based on the returned gold result being less than ten times the quoted lower detection limit of the analytical method. The results of the on-going analytical quality control program are evaluated and reported to Goldshore by Orix Geoscience Inc.

About Goldshore

Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome is currently a large shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 27% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

The Moss Lake Gold Project is located approximately 100 km west of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is accessed via Highway 11 which passes within 1 km of the property boundary to the north. The Moss Lake Gold Project covers 14,292 hectares and consists of 282 unpatented and patented mining claims.

The Moss Lake Gold Project hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 3), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 4), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment (the “Moss Lake Historical Estimate“) was completed on the Moss Lake Gold Project in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (“Moss Lake Gold Mines“)1,3. A historical mineral resource estimate (the “East Coldstream Historical Estimate“) was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc.2,3 In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (“Wesdome“), which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

The historically producing North Coldstream Mine is reported to have produced significant amounts of copper, gold and silver4 from mineralization with potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. The exploration potential immediately surrounding the historic mining area is not currently well understood and historic data compilation is required.

The Hamlin Zone is a significant occurrence of copper and gold mineralization, and also of potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. Between 2008 and 2011, Glencore tested Hamlin with 24 drill holes which successfully outlined a broad and intermittently mineralized zone over a strike length of 900 m. Historic drill hole highlights from the Hamlin Zone include 0.9 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu over 150.7 m in HAM-11-75.

The Moss Lake, East Coldstream and North Coldstream deposits sit on a mineral trend marked by a regionally significant deformation zone locally referred to as the Wawiag Fault Zone in the area of the Moss Lake Deposit. This deformation zone occurs over a length of approximately 20 km on the Moss Lake Gold Project and there is an area spanning approximately 7 km between the Moss Lake and East Coldstream deposits that is significantly underexplored.

Goldshore Intercepts 2.65 g/t Au over 14.6m in 200 m Step-Out Hole at Moss Lake

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – August 10, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Moss Lake Gold Project“).

Highlights:

  • Four holes drilled to evaluate the eastern extension of the Southwest Zone have confirmed gold mineralization within anastomosing shears in altered diorite with intercepts of:
    • 39.75m @ 1.18 g/t Au from 44.25m depth in MMD-22-023, including
      • 14.60m @ 2.65 g/t Au from 462.2m 
    • 11.65m @ 1.05 g/t Au from 37.35m depth, and
    • 18.70m @ 1.37 g/t Au from 151.1m in MMD-22-031
    • 10.00m @ 1.05 g/t Au from 290.0m in MMD-22-035

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “We are excited to continue to deliver consistent drilling results. I am encouraged about the high-grade sections we are seeing and have shared previously with the market, as this will provide optionality when we model the resource later in the year and start to look at economic pit shells. With this step out hole from historically drilled areas at Moss Lake, it will further increase the optionality.”

Intersections calculated above a 0.3 g/t Au cut off with a top cut of 30 g/t Au and a maximum internal waste interval of 10 metres. Shaded intervals are intersections calculated above a 1.0 g/t Au cut off. Intervals in bold are those with a grade thickness factor exceeding 20 gram x metres / tonne gold. True widths are approximate and assume a subvertical body. The fact that cut and uncut assays are the same, shows that all samples assayed less than the 30 g/t Au top cut.

Results have been received for four holes that have tested the previously undrilled eastern extension of the Southwest Zone. They show that mineralization is continuous in several structurally-controlled zones. The Southwest Zone remains open in both the east and west directions.

These holes intersected several broad zones of low-grade mineralization within the altered diorite intrusion host. Examples include 61.85m @ 0.84 g/t Au from 440.25m in MMD-22-023; 124.9m @ 0.48 g/t Au from 95.1m in MMD-22-027; 64.3m @ 0.61 g/t Au from 15.5m and 82.5m @ 0.66 g/t Au from 91.95m in MMD-22-031; and 137.65m @ 0.37 g/t Au from 184.75m in MMD-22-035 among several 10-20 meter wide zones of low-grade gold mineralization throughout all holes.

All of these low-grade zones occur as envelopes to higher-grade structures. An analysis of oriented core by structural geologist, Dr. Brett Davis, confirmed that these form a three-dimensional, anastomosing shear network that has developed in response to strain on the altered diorite intrusion. Results include the broad zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization shown in the highlights (e.g., 39.75m @ 1.18 g/t Au from 440.25m in MMD-22-023) and several narrow high-grade intervals, including 0.8m @ 33.3 g/t Au from 462.2m in MMD-22-023; 0.3m @ 14.3 g/t Au from 172.3m in MMD-22-027; and 0.65m @ 15.5 g/t Au from 167.35m in MMD-22-031.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said, “These drill results confirm the potential of the Moss Lake Gold Project. Drilling to test potential expansions to these parallel zones of mineralization will continue into the end of the year.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

All samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Thunder Bay for preparation and analysis was performed in the ALS Vancouver analytical facility. ALS is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for the Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories and CAN-P-4E ISO/IEC 17025. Samples were analyzed for gold via fire assay with an AA finish (“Au-AA23”) and 48 pathfinder elements via ICP-MS after four-acid digestion (“ME-MS61”). Samples that assayed over 10 ppm Au were re-run via fire assay with a gravimetric finish (“Au-GRA21”).

In addition to ALS quality assurance / quality control (“QA/QC”) protocols, Goldshore has implemented a quality control program for all samples collected through the drilling program. The quality control program was designed by a qualified and independent third party, with a focus on the quality of analytical results for gold. Analytical results are received, imported to our secure on-line database and evaluated to meet our established guidelines to ensure that all sample batches pass industry best practice for analytical quality control. Certified reference materials are considered acceptable if values returned are within three standard deviations of the certified value reported by the manufacture of the material. In addition to the certified reference material, certified blank material is included in the sample stream to monitor contamination during sample preparation. Blank material results are assessed based on the returned gold result being less than ten times the quoted lower detection limit of the analytical method. The results of the on-going analytical quality control program are evaluated and reported to Goldshore by Orix Geoscience Inc.

About Goldshore

Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome is currently a large shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 27% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

The Moss Lake Gold Project is located approximately 100 km west of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is accessed via Highway 11 which passes within 1 km of the property boundary to the north. The Moss Lake Gold Project covers 14,292 hectares and consists of 282 unpatented and patented mining claims.

The Moss Lake Gold Project hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 3), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 4), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment (the “Moss Lake Historical Estimate“) was completed on the Moss Lake Gold Project in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (“Moss Lake Gold Mines“)1,3. A historical mineral resource estimate (the “East Coldstream Historical Estimate“) was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc.2,3 In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (“Wesdome“), which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

The historically producing North Coldstream Mine is reported to have produced significant amounts of copper, gold and silver4 from mineralization with potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. The exploration potential immediately surrounding the historic mining area is not currently well understood and historic data compilation is required.

The Hamlin Zone is a significant occurrence of copper and gold mineralization, and also of potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. Between 2008 and 2011, Glencore tested Hamlin with 24 drill holes which successfully outlined a broad and intermittently mineralized zone over a strike length of 900 m. Historic drill hole highlights from the Hamlin Zone include 0.9 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu over 150.7 m in HAM-11-75.

The Moss Lake, East Coldstream and North Coldstream deposits sit on a mineral trend marked by a regionally significant deformation zone locally referred to as the Wawiag Fault Zone in the area of the Moss Lake Deposit. This deformation zone occurs over a length of approximately 20 km on the Moss Lake Gold Project and there is an area spanning approximately 7 km between the Moss Lake and East Coldstream deposits that is significantly underexplored.

(1) Source: Poirier, S., Patrick, G.A., Richard, P.L., and Palich, J. “Technical Report and Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Moss Lake Project”, prepared for Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. The qualified persons for the Moss Lake Historical Estimate are Pierre-Luc Richard, MSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and Carl Pelletier, BSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and the effective date of the Moss Lake Historical Estimate is February 8, 2013. In-Pit results are presented undiluted and in situ, within Whittle-optimized pit shells. Underground results are presented undiluted and in situ, outside Whittle-optimized pit shells. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate includes 18 gold-bearing zones and 1 envelope containing isolated gold intercepts. Whittle parameters: mining cost = C$2.28; pit slope angle = 50.0 degrees; production cost = C$9.55; mining Dilution = 5%; mining recovery = 95%; processing recovery = 80% to 85%; gold price = C$1,500. In-Pit and Underground resources were compiled at cut-off grades from 0.3 to 5.0 g/t Au (for sensitivity characterization). A cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au was selected as the official in-pit cut-off grade and a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au was selected as the official underground cut-off grade. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate is based on 352 diamond drill holes (90,978 m) drilled from 1983 and 2008. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. A minimum true thickness of 5.0 m was applied, using the grade of the adjacent material when assayed or a value of zero when not assayed. Capping was established at 35 g/t Au, supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Gems version 6.4. Based on geostatistics, the ellipse range for interpolation was 75m x 67.5m x 40m. The Indicated category is defined by combining the blocks within the two main zones and various statistical criteria, such as average distance to composites, distance to closest composite, quantity of drill holes within the search area. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on a 0.4 g/t Au cut-off grade. The qualified persons for the East Coldstream Historical Estimate are Todd McCracken, P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and Jeff Wilson, Ph.D., P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and the effective date of the East Coldstream Historical Estimate is December 12, 2011. Resources are presented unconstrained, undiluted and in situ. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate includes 2 gold-bearing zones. A cut-off grade of 0.4 g/t Au was selected as the official resource cut-off grade. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on 116 diamond drill holes drilled from 1986 to 2011. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. Capping was established at 5.89 g/t Au and 5.70 g/t Au for domains EC-1 and EC-2, respectively. This is supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Datamine Studio 3 version 3.20.5321.0. Recource categorization is based on spatial continuity based from the variography of the assays within the drillholes. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

(3) The reader is cautioned that the Moss Lake Historical Estimate East and the East Coldstream Historical Estimate (the “Historical Estimates“) are considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. The reader is cautioned not to treat them, or any part of them, as current mineral resources or reserves. The Company has determined these historical resources are reliable, and relevant to be included here in that they demonstrate simply the mineral potential of the Moss Lake Gold Project. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimates as current resources and Goldshore is not treating the Historical Estimates as current resources. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the Historical Estimates can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that any of the historical mineral resources, in whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category. The Historical Estimates relating to inferred mineral resources were calculated using prior mining industry standard definitions and practices for estimating mineral resource and mineral reserves. Such prior definitions and practices were utilized prior to the implementation of the current standards of the Canadian Institute of Mining for mineral resource estimation, and have a lower level of confidence.

Goldshore Resources Confirms High Grade Mineralization in the Main Zone

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 20, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada. Drilling is aiming to better define high-grade structural zones within the Moss Lake deposit.

Highlights:

  • Three holes drilled to evaluate gaps in the Main Zone have confirmed high-grade gold mineralization within anastomosing shears hosted by low-grade mineralized altered diorite with intercepts of:
  • 13.30m @ 1.49 g/t Au from 48.6m depth in MMD-22-028
  • 21.20m @ 1.66 g/t Au from 187.7m
  • 3.50m @ 10.7 g/t Au from 349.6m
  • 17.00m @ 1.28 g/t Au from 50.0m depth in MMD-22-030
  • 6.30m @ 2.00 g/t Au from 358.7m, including
  • 7.70m @ 1.40 g/t Au from 533.3m depth in MMD-22-032
  • 6.00m @ 1.93 g/t Au from 570.0m
  • MMD-20-32 also extended across the Main Zone to confirm the recently identified southern parallel zone with best intercepts of:
  • 9.60m @ 1.02 g/t Au from 805.9m
  • 10.00m @ 1.21 g/t Au from 825.0m

President and CEO, Brett Richards, stated, “We continue to receive results that confirm the developing model that high grades occur within broader envelopes of lower grade gold mineralization. Our understanding of the geology is now at a level that will enable us to accurately represent the position of high grades within a resource model we are aiming to produce by the end of the year.”

Approximate collar coordinates in NAD 83, Zone 15N

Results have been received for three holes that have infilled areas of the Main Zone that are between sections drilled by historic holes with collar survey problems.

The holes were only constrained by the 500-meter vertical depth limit being applied to all holes in this program. As with the historic holes, these holes intersected several broad zones of low-grade mineralization within the altered diorite intrusion host. Examples include 74.95m @ 0.58 g/t Au from 40.35m, 55.0m @ 0.88 g/t Au from 182.0m and 44.2m @ 0.8 g/t Au from 342.9m in MMD-22-028; 81.55m @ 0.51 g/t Au from 7.0m and 117.55m @ 0.38 g/t Au from 336.0m in MMD-22-030; and 81.45m @ 0.50 g/t Au from 528.55m in MMD-22-032.

All of these low-grade zones occur as envelopes to higher-grade structures. An analysis of oriented core by renowned structural geologist, Dr. Brett Davis, confirmed that these form a three-dimensional, anastomosing shear network that has developed in response to strain on the altered diorite intrusion. Results include the broad zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization shown in the highlights (e.g., 21.2m @ 1.66 g/t Au from 187.7m in MMD-22-028) and several narrow high-grade intervals, including 0.4m @ 61.5 g/t Au from 349.6m and 0.6m @ 13.6 g/t Au from 352.5m in MMD-22-028; and 0.4m @ 14.7 g/t Au from 363.55m in MMD-22-030.

The high grade near surface intercepts in MMD-22-028 and MMD-22-030 extend previously defined high-grade mineralization to surface.

MMD-22-032 also extended across the altered diorite into the wall rock to test the southern parallel zone. This broad zone of low-grade mineralization (51.85m @ 0.60 g/t Au from 805.9m) occurs around the higher-grade structures listed in the highlights.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said, “The recent structural geology review by Dr. Brett Davis has helped resolve the theories we have been developing for the genesis of the Moss Lake gold deposit. Our improved understanding will guide the upcoming geological modelling exercise. Specifically, we will model a 3D anastomosing shear network that hosts the higher grades in the deposit and direct the geometry of the lower grade haloes. This is a significant step forward as the historic resource model ignores high grade gold mineralization.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

All samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Thunder Bay for preparation and analysis was performed in the ALS Vancouver analytical facility. ALS is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for the Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories and CAN-P-4E ISO/IEC 17025. Samples were analyzed for gold via fire assay with an AA finish (“Au-AA23“) and 48 pathfinder elements via ICP-MS after four-acid digestion (“ME-MS61“). Samples that assayed over 10 ppm Au were re-run via fire assay with a gravimetric finish (“Au-GRA21“).

In addition to ALS quality assurance / quality control (“QA/QC“) protocols, Goldshore has implemented a quality control program for all samples collected through the drilling program. The quality control program was designed by a qualified and independent third party, with a focus on the quality of analytical results for gold. Analytical results are received, imported to our secure on-line database and evaluated to meet our established guidelines to ensure that all sample batches pass industry best practice for analytical quality control. Certified reference materials are considered acceptable if values returned are within three standard deviations of the certified value reported by the manufacture of the material. In addition to the certified reference material, certified blank material is included in the sample stream to monitor contamination during sample preparation. Blank material results are assessed based on the returned gold result being less than ten times the quoted lower detection limit of the analytical method. The results of the on-going analytical quality control program are evaluated and reported to Goldshore by Orix Geoscience Inc.

About Goldshore

Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome is currently a strategic shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 27% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

The Moss Lake Gold Project is located approximately 100 km west of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is accessed via Highway 11 which passes within 1 km of the property boundary to the north. The Moss Lake Gold Project covers 14,292 hectares and consists of 282 unpatented and patented mining claims.

Moss Lake hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 3), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 4), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment was completed on Moss Lake in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold1. A historical mineral resource estimate was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc2,3. In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome, which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

The historically producing North Coldstream Mine is reported to have produced significant amounts of copper, gold and silver4 from mineralization with potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. The exploration potential immediately surrounding the historic mining area is not currently well understood and historic data compilation is required.

The Hamlin Zone is a significant occurrence of copper and gold mineralization, and also of potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. Between 2008 and 2011, Glencore tested Hamlin with 24 drill holes which successfully outlined a broad and intermittently mineralized zone over a strike length of 900 m. Historic drill hole highlights from the Hamlin Zone include 0.9 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu over 150.7 m in HAM-11-75.

The Moss Lake, East Coldstream and North Coldstream deposits sit on a mineral trend marked by a regionally significant deformation zone locally referred to as the Wawiag Fault Zone in the area of the Moss Lake Deposit. This deformation zone occurs over a length of approximately 20 km on the Moss Lake Gold Project and there is an area spanning approximately 7 km between the Moss Lake and East Coldstream deposits that is significantly underexplored.

The reader is cautioned that the above referenced “historical mineral resource” estimates are considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as current resources and Goldshore is not treating the historical estimates as current resources. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the historical estimate on the Moss Lake Gold Project can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that any of the historical mineral resources, in whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category.

As illustrated in Figure 1.0, the Properties are adjacent to our north-eastern property claims in the Coldstream and Iris Lake area. As we have suggested in the past, and with the interpretation of the airborne geo-physical VTEM survey conducted in 2021; there is a strong correlation through Coldstream and Iris Lake towards the Properties, that suggest this strike length is contiguous.”

Current Market Conditions

Goldshore has decided to temporarily scale back its drilling program from 7 rigs to 2 rigs in an effort to preserve capital in this uncertain and volatile capital market environment. The Company has also evaluated all possible cost containment and cost control measures to assist in this regard, and are reducing costs wherever possible. This decision to slow drilling production may affect Goldshore’s ability to complete its planned 100,000m drill program in 2022, as previously planned, but does not change the strategy or management’s view on the Moss Lake Project. The Company will continue to monitor all market conditions, as well as its ability to execute on its objectives going forward.

About Goldshore

Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome is currently a strategic shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 27% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

The Moss Lake Gold Project is located approximately 100 km west of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is accessed via Highway 11 which passes within 1 km of the property boundary to the north. The Moss Lake Gold Project covers 14,292 hectares and consists of 282 unpatented and patented mining claims.

Moss Lake hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 1), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 2), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment was completed on Moss Lake in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold1. A historical mineral resource estimate was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc2,3. In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome, which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

The historically producing North Coldstream Mine is reported to have produced significant amounts of copper, gold and silver4 from mineralization with potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. The exploration potential immediately surrounding the historic mining area is not currently well understood and historic data compilation is required.

The Hamlin Zone is a significant occurrence of copper and gold mineralization, and also of potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. Between 2008 and 2011, Glencore tested Hamlin with 24 drill holes which successfully outlined a broad and intermittently mineralized zone over a strike length of 900 m. Historic drill hole highlights from the Hamlin Zone include 0.9 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu over 150.7 m in HAM-11-75.

The Moss Lake, East Coldstream and North Coldstream deposits sit on a mineral trend marked by a regionally significant deformation zone locally referred to as the Wawiag Fault Zone in the area of the Moss Lake Deposit. This deformation zone occurs over a length of approximately 20 km on the Moss Lake Gold Project and there is an area spanning approximately 7 km between the Moss Lake and East Coldstream deposits that is significantly underexplored.

(VIDEO) Goldshore Resources – Moss Lake has Depth, Width and Along Strike

Goldshore Resources – (TSX.V: GSHR | OTCQB: GSHRF)
Website: https://goldshoreresources.com/
3D Deck: https://goldshoreresources.com/investors/#corporate-presentation

Goal: To Create the Next Tier One Asset in Ontario, Canada.

Flagship Project: The Moss Lake Property located in Ontario, Canada has 1.47 M oz of Indicated and 2.51 M oz of Inferred historical gold resources, along with a robust Preliminary Economic Assessment conducted in 2020.

Joining us for our conversation is Brett Richards, the CEO of Goldshore Resources.

Maurice Jackson: Mr. Richards, it’s a pleasure to be speaking with you today as Goldshore Resources has some exciting news for shareholders, as the company continues on its path to creating the next Tier One asset in Ontario, Canada. Mr. Richards, for someone new to the story, please introduce us to Goldshore Resources and the exciting opportunity the company presents to shareholders.

Brett Richards: Goldshore is a company that was formed last year. We’ve been trading for just over a year now, and on the back of acquiring the Moss Lake Project from Wesdome Gold Mines for $52 million in cash and shares last year, we have put together a strategy over the last nine months to drill this up to let’s call it critical mass. What we acquired in the Moss Lake Project was a 4 million-ounce historic resource, and our view is that the extensions of this resource, both laterally along strike and at depth, are significant, particularly along strike.

Our original strategy was let’s put together a 100,000-meter drill program. Let’s get financed and let’s get on with it, and that’s what we’ve been doing for the past nine months, and most recent results are starting to I’ll say support the original thesis we had about Moss Lake being much bigger than first thought.

Maurice Jackson: Before we deep dive into the press release, some important competitive advantages distinguish Goldshore Resources from its peers and truly make the Moss Lake property a unique value proposition. Mr. Richards, for someone new to the flagship Moss Lake property, please acquaint us with the deposit, beginning with your location and some of your neighbors in the region.

Brett Richards: The Moss Lake Property is about 120 kilometers northwest of Thunder Bay in Ontario. We are probably in the most mining-friendly jurisdiction in the world, plus we are on the Trans-Canada Highway, Yonge Street in Toronto, which happens to be the longest street in the world, going all the way to Manitoba. Our concession is adjoined to Trans-Canada Highway.

And why is that important? It’s important for several reasons, particularly about infrastructure. When I look at mining projects, at the end of the day, obviously there’s the technical side of things, but there’s also what I call the do-ability factor. Is this mine really doable? Can you get this into production easily? And the answer for Moss Lake is yes.

Being on the Trans-Canada Highway means we’re afforded 10-cent kilowatt-hour power, which goes right by our doorstep. We have a four-lane highway, so access to our site is as good as it gets. We have power, water, rail, people, consultants, contractors, and government, all within nothing more than an hour’s drive into the City of Thunder Bay, and an international port and an international airport. So, we tick all the boxes when it comes to infrastructure, so that is kind of, I’ll say the description of where we are, and why I think it’s so compelling to be where we are.

There are a lot of people around us as well. The Shebandowan Greenstone Belt where we’re located has been a bit under-explored over the years because low-grade bulk tonnage style deposits were not in favor when gold was $1,500. But now gold is kind of trading on a floor of $1,800, they seem to be much more appealing to investors. Certainly, after the success of Detour Lake, I think you’ll see these types of deposits more and more come into production.

Maurice Jackson: You referenced Goldshore Resources as having a historical resource, and the company also completed a robust Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) back in 2020. Can you share some of those highlights with us?

Brett Richards: Historically the area has been, let’s, so-called cobbled together as a big land package. There are three distinct areas within our domain, the Moss Lake area being kind of the flagship. It is what carries three and a half million ounces of that historical resource. Up in the Northeast, up near the highway, we have Coldstream and North Coldstream and Iris Lake against all kinds of compartmentalized land packages that were cobbled together by Wesdome.

There’s a 500,000-ounce historical resource on Coldstream, and a former actual operating mine at North Coldstream that ran for about 30 years in the, about 40 or 50 years ago. We have a very interesting kind of, I’ll say land package, and the work that has been done on this culminated in 2013 when a PEA was done on the property by Moss Lake Gold Mines.

Again, the PEA was updated in 2020 by WesDome before kind of launching a sale process and let’s face it, PEAs are a snapshot in time, and the time in 2013 and the time in 2020, and the time today are all very, very different, knowing that we are in a hyperinflationary environment today, what CAPEX might have been $500 million back in 2020, might be 600 million or $650 million today.

We have to keep that in mind as we go through. But I think back in 2013, and back in 2020, this project, at these gold levels, at $1,800 to $2,200 gold, and trades between a 27% and a 40% IRR. So, after-tax, the internal rate of return, is very, very compelling. We can look at the new present values of these projects, but again, they’re snapshots in time. What that tells me is that this is a robust project that when tested, even with inflation, even with different input assumptions, relative to the economic circumstances at the time, it is going to be a robust project.

Maurice Jackson: Goldshore Resources currently is embarked on a 100,000-meter drill program. Are you twinning the holes, and conducting step-out drilling on this?

Brett Richards: We are doing some verification drilling of the existing historical resource. We are stepping out laterally. We are stepping out along strike, and we have identified a parallel zone to the Moss Lake deposit, which is very exciting, and some high-grade structural areas within the deposit, which we’ll look to improve the overall grade and volume as we get further down the road, and get closer to a resource estimate.

Maurice Jackson: Speaking of your drill program, some of the initial assay results have just been released. What do they seem to indicate thus far?

Brett Richards: Well, I think they, we’ve always been trying to test our thesis that this is bigger and much more robust as a deposit than the historical resource illustrates. We’ve done that through a geophysical survey, and you can see that on our website, the 3D model of it, where you can see the potential for future mineralization up along strike, that goes 7 to 12 kilometers further than where Moss Lake is now.

But I think the results that we started to put out from the very beginning show between one, 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 grams over long intervals, long intercepts of 50, 60, 70, 100, and 120 meters in some cases. I’ll say, some good intercepts, but I think what the surprise has been where we have gone kind of not twining holes, but stepping out a little bit, and stepping into an area that might be classified as inferred.

We’ve hit some high-grade structures, and I think that’s simply because of the geophysical work we’ve done, the structural work we’ve done with a structural geologist by the name of Brett Davis, who’s on-site currently. Pete Flindell, who is our VP of Exploration, he and the team have kind of figured this out. Targeting of some of these higher grade holes has been something that we wanted to do, because ultimately when we kind of go to, I’ll say, interpret all of this data, I don’t think the market is going to want another kind of $1.5 or $2 billion project that does 60,000 tons a day and produces 600,000 ounces of gold. That’s just not viable in this current economic environment.

You’re not going to be able to raise that kind of money. You’re not going to be able to get traction on that type of project. I think we have to start pivoting and looking at alternatives, and what are those? Is there a higher-grade starter pit alternative here within the deposit? I think that’s what we’re going to try and kind of focus on over the next little while. Therefore, there will be more infill and more delineation drilling than anything. But, we are still doing some step-out as well.

Maurice Jackson: All right. Well, let’s get to the press release. Goldshore Resources just received some welcoming news from the assay labs, which identify significant downhole gold intercepts. What can you share with us, Sir?

Brett Richards: We just announced, 78 meters at 1.17 grams from about 170 meters depth. This is a great hole. It’s all going to get contained within an open-pit mine. It’s going to pull a lot of tonnage in. I think, there were some high-grade areas within that, including 22 meters at 2.3 grams and 5.6 meters at 5.69 grams, in and around the 200 to the 220-meter range.

So, this is encouraging, and there are some other intercepts on some other holes that we announced, but it’s all more of the same. There’s anywhere from 20 to a hundred meters at over a gram.

Our objective is to try to maximize the grade. A little bit of grade, 0.1 grams here is going to add 10% to our resource. Even 1 gram or 1.1 gram, it’s quite meaningful at the end of the day. We’ll figure all this out once we get all the data and get towards a mineral source update at the end of the year. But I think right now, and I can talk a lot about the current market dynamics, but sadly, putting good results out into the market has not moved our share price. It’s actually, we have been impacted like all the other junior minors and we’ve been trading downwards.

Maurice Jackson: Looking forward, what can you share with us regarding optionality and economic open pit shells as you model your resource?

Brett Richards: I think we’re going to see a lot of results come out over the next six months or more of the same, illustrating our thesis that this is going to be a real project. Also, I think better delineation on defining this higher-grade starting project, but we can’t lose sight that this is, I think, this is a Tier One asset. This is going to be 10 million ounces by the time the drilling has wrapped up. Whether that’s a year or two or three from now. This is such a large area. There’s probably going to be another 100,000 meters as this gets towards a feasibility study.

Like I’ve said, we’ve got a footprint here that is a Tier One asset at the end of the day, but I think we need to start focusing on what the market is going to respond to. The market is going to respond to, is this a project that has a smaller CAPEX option, a smaller starter with that positive cash flow as soon as possible. Those types of questions need to be addressed and need to be presented to the market. So, we’re going to be looking at some permutations at the end of the day, when we do a PEA next year.

Maurice Jackson: Let’s get into some numbers. Mr. Richards, please provide the capital structure for Goldshore Resource.

Brett Richards: Goldshore Resources has about 143 million shares outstanding today, and only 5 million out warrants outstanding, and we’ve got about $13 million in the bank as of June. We’re well-positioned here and can ride this out.

As I’ve said before, we got caught in a bit of the whole market dynamics. We wanted to play a bit of catch-up, and get ahead of the curve on drilling, so we ramped up our drilling just before the whole market started crashing.

Our team took our foot off the pedal, and we put the brakes on it a little bit. We did scale up to seven rigs, but we’ve pulled back now to a couple of rigs. I want to ride this out. Preservation of cash and preservation of this company is first and foremost.

The capital markets are so volatile and so unpredictable right now, I’m very comfortable just burning a couple of million dollars a month and just watching this, or less than a couple of million dollars a month, and just watching how this unfolds to the fall because we don’t want to be in a situation where, where we have to go to the market and the market is not there for us.

Maurice Jackson: Speaking of being comfortable, I just want to share with everyone that I am a proud shareholder, and I’m looking to add to my position under these circumstances. The value proposition is extremely compelling, and I’m not discouraged by the price. I understand how markets work, and I never complain about a sale when it comes to capital goods. Now, since we’re covering numbers, how does Goldshore Resources compare with some of your peers?

Brett Richards: Well, we’ve never been able to kind of figure this one out, but we’re trading today somewhere kind of in order of magnitude around $10 an ounce, it’s crazy, but that is kind of where we are today. Our peers have also been impacted, but they also had a higher starting point. We’ve got a trading comparable sheet in our presentation that has us at the bottom of our peer group, and this is a peer group put together by a bank. At trading at $10 today, and our peers trading anywhere from $15, $20, $25, all the way up to $100 an ounce for Marathon.Looking at a pure comparison basis, Goldshore Resources is the least expensive among our peers. When you start looking at what it costs to bring ounces onto a resource statement, to put ounces into the inferred category costs about $30 an ounce. If you have a million ounces of inferred resource, it’ll probably cost $30 million to get there, then drilling in other activities.

So we’re trading at a third of that, a third of what it costs to do it. So, I think from an investment opportunity standpoint, there’s one way here, and it’s up.

Maurice Jackson: In closing, Sir, what would you like to say to shareholders?

Brett Richards: I think the really compelling investment case here is how we have performed against the general market, and where we are today. I’ll say the leverage that we have on the way back up. This is not going to go on forever. We may still feel some pain in the capital markets going forward, but we are going to recover, and commodities and equity, gold equities are going to accelerate, and probably much faster than the market when it does turn around, and when it does come back. We are actually leveraged to that even greater than the normal gold equity market, because of our size and our scale, and our potential to bring this up to a Tier One status.

So, there are some compounding, compelling investment reasons why to choose Goldshore, and I am also a major shareholder of this company. I have never continued to lose sight of the fact that this is a real project, and this is going to get into production one day.

Maurice Jackson: Mr. Richards, it’s been a pleasure speaking with you today. Wishing you and Goldshore Resources, the absolute best, Sir.

Brett Richards: Thanks, Maurice.
