Golddigger Property

Goliath has an option to acquire 100% of the Golddigger property that covers an area of 23,859 hectares (59,646 acres or 239 square-kilometers) and is in the world class geological setting of the Eskay Rift (Link to Map) within the Golden Triangle, British Columbia and within 2 km of the Red Line (Link to Map) that is host to multiple world class deposits. The property is on tide water 30 kilometers southeast of Stewart, British Columbia. The Homestake Ridge Deposit (Fury Gold Mines Limited), Dolly Varden Silver Mine (Dolly Varden Silver Corp.), and the Kinskuch Project (Hecla Mining Company) are in close proximity.

The Company has discovered a new high-grade polymetallic gold-silver shear zone, the “Surebet Zone” on the Golddigger property. Surebet is characterized by a series of NW-SE trending structures that occur within a package of Hazelton Group sediments underlain by Hazelton volcanics and are within 2 kilometers of the Red Line. LiDAR imagery, drone imagery, and field observations have identified several additional paralleling structures within a 4 square-kilometers area. Geochemical analyses have confirmed high-grade gold-silver polymetallic mineralization within these structures. The steeply dipping Real Deal and Cloud 9 structures, as well as the off shoot structures from the newly discovered Extension, display similar mineralization, geochemistry and textures to the Surebet Zone. Geologic observations at surface and within drill core show structural strain concentrating in the Surebet Zone along its shallower-dipping geometry. Real Deal and Cloud 9 are believed to be en-echelon structures that connect with Surebet at depth that remains open.

Mineralization within the Surebet Zone consists of structurally controlled massive, semi-massive, and disseminated sulphides containing Galena, Sphalerite, Pyrrhotite and Pyrite. These lenses occur within broad alteration halos of silica flooded sediments which also contain polymetallic mineralization up to 43.5 meters wide.

Goliath successfully completed a 5,332 meter maiden drill campaign in 2021 where 100% of all 24 holes intercepted significant mineralization over 1 km of strike and 1.1 km of down dip extension on the Surebet discovery. The average grade and width from the best hole from each 7 widely spaced drill pads assayed 9.42 gpt AuEq (6.66 gpt Au and 172.66 gpt Ag) over 6.43 meters* respectively. These positive results confirm the continuity and scale of an extensive high-grade gold-silver polymetallic system that remains open.

2021 Maiden Drilling Campaign & Exploration Highlights:

  • 100% of all 24 holes drilled during the 2021 maiden campaign totalling 5332 meters intersected significant high-grade gold-silver mineralization over 1 km of strike and 1.1 km of down dip extent.
  • This successful maiden drill campaign confirms the continuity and extensive scale of a high-grade gold-silver polymetallic system that remains open.
  • GD-21-03 intersected 6.37 gpt AuEq (4.46 gpt Au and 122.13 gpt Ag) over 35.72 meters*.
  • GD-21-05 intersected 12.6 gpt AuEq (8.06 gpt Au and 313.66 gpt Ag) over 6.38 meters*.
  • The average grade and width from the best hole from each 7 widely spaced drill pads assayed 9.42 gpt AuEq (6.66 gpt Au and 172.66 gpt Ag) over 6.43 meters*.
  • The average grade and width from all 24 holes assayed 6.29 gpt AuEq (4.35 gpt Au and 104.94 gpt Ag) over 5.87 meters*.
  • A newly discovered “Extension Target” of widespread high-grade gold-silver polymetallic mineralization outcrop was found 500 meters southeast of the Surebet Zone that is 1200 meters by 400 meters.
  • The Extension Target samples are mineralogically, geochemically and texturally similar to the surface and in drill core seen on the Surebet Zone; grabs assayed up to 75.04 gpt AuEq and a channel cut assayed 14.76 gpt AuEq over 0.58 meters.

"Goliath Resource's execution of a first phase drill program at Surebet has generated a major new gold-silver discovery in the Golden Triangle," commented Dr. Quinton Hennigh, Advisor and Director of Crescat Capital, a strategic shareholder of Goliath. "The fact that all twenty-four core holes successfully encountered mineralized intercepts across the Surebet Zone is remarkable, and even more so, these holes define a mineralized footprint of 1,000 m strike and 1,100 m down dip extent. The weighted average down hole length and grade of these twenty-four holes is 5.87 m and 6.29 gpt Au eq, respectively. While another robust round of drilling is needed to more fully assess the Surebet Zone, this is a fantastic start and provides an early indication this is a significant new discovery. On top of this stellar drill success, the Company also successfully sampled new areas of mineralization that may prove to be natural extensions of the Surebet mineralizing system, especially to the southeast. If so, this discovery could grow very quickly. We at Crescat are delighted to be a part of this exciting story and eagerly await a new season of aggressive drilling at Surebet."
