Underground operations at GoWest's Bradshaw expected to resume soon

May 13, 2024

"As we have seen throughout this extensive drill program, our team has steadily revealed more and more gold mineralization both at Bradshaw and across a number of other areas on our NTGP," said Dan Gagnon, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We remain confident that we will further expand our resources, including the very real potential to develop more than one important new mine on our property in the Timmins gold camp. Meanwhile, we are also planning for the restart of underground mining at Bradshaw soon." 

Gowest Gold Ltd. is pleased to provide a further update on the latest assay results from Phase 2 of its previously announced surface diamond drill program at its 100% owned North Timmins Gold Project ("NTGP"). This latest work is part of the $10 Million exploration program phase, which aims to expand the mineable resource at the Bradshaw Gold deposit ("Bradshaw"), as well as to further test other parts of the Corporation's NTGP area where notable gold has also been intercepted previously.

Diamond Drilling Highlights Since Last Update

  • A total of 12,769 meters (m) of drilling has been completed as of April 30th, including 32 completed holes and two holes in progress on the Sheridan gold zone and west of Bradshaw.
  • Highest intercept: 13.6 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) over 1.1 m from hole GW23-352, including 2.06 g/t Au over 0.6 m from the Bradshaw HW8 zone. 
  • Other significant gold mineralization: 5.27 g/t Au over 2.6 m (including 22.3 g/t Au over 0.6 m) in Hole GW23-346 on the HW7 zone, and 23.2 g/t Au over 1.5 m in hole GW24-351A on newly discovered HW10 zone. 

Technical Overview-Phase 2:

The Phase 2 surface drilling program is expected to be completed in November 2024. This exploration drilling program is targeting the Bradshaw deposit, the Sheridan Zone, and the Roussain Zone. (See Figures 1, 2 and 3). A total of 12,769 m of drilling has been completed as of April 30th since the start of Phase 2 drilling program, consisting of a total of 32 finished holes (see Table 3 below) and two holes in progress.
