G2 GOLDFIELDS Announces High-Grade Gold Discovery; Drills 8 m of 34.5 g/t Gold and 10.33 m of 10.92 g/t Gold in two holes at W1 Zone, Sandy Lake, N.W. Ontario


TORONTO , May 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- G2 Goldfields Inc. (TSXV: GTWO) (the “Company”) announces a significant new high-grade discovery at it’s W1 Zone, Sandy Lake, Ontario. The Company has completed six holes totalling 1980 meters; four of the holes were drilled in the W1 Zone, and two tested geophysical targets approximately 1.5km to the West. All intercepts reported in this press release are core lengths, as true widths have not been determined.

W1 Zone Drilling

Hole 19-04 intercepted four zones of quartz veining and pyrite mineralisation that contained significant gold intercepts including:

From 58m;       2.4m @ 3.89 g/t Au

From 69m;       8.0m @ 34.5 g/t Au

From 95.8m;     1.64m @ 49.83 g/t Au

From 104m;     3.0m @ 3.06 g/t Au

Gold mineralisation is associated with silica flooding and quartz vein stockworks hosted within a 46m (downhole length) envelope of disseminated biotite / pyrite altered Quartz-Eye Porphyry (QEP).

Additionally in the W1 Zone, Hole 19-06 drilled through the hinge of a South East plunging syncline, intercepting strong mineralisation within the QEP above and below a mafic unit, including:

From 60.10m;  5.80m @ 4.85 g/t Au

From 83.67m;  10.33m @ 10.92 g/t Au

Patrick Sheridan, CEO of G2Goldfields Inc. said, “These initial results from our ongoing drill program in this district are extremely encouraging and demonstrate the strong prospectivity of the Company’s holdings. We hope to systematically explore the remaining seven target areas identified for immediate investigation as well as build upon these initial encouraging results in the W1 Zone”.

Dan Noone, VP of Exploration at G2 Goldfields said, “Our geological understanding of this high-grade system grows daily, and we look forward to further exploration in this emerging gold district”

Two additional drill holes were completed in the W1 Zone, with Hole 19-05 intercepting in a narrow zone of high-grade mineralization within a broader zone of intense silica flooding and re-folded quartz veining. Results include:

From 205.70m; 0.6m @ 81.59 g/t Au

Hole 19-01 intercepted a 20m (downhole length) zone containing quartz tourmaline veins within disseminated biotite / pyrite altered QEP, which contained two anomalous gold intercepts;

From 268m; 2m @ 0.61 g/t Au

From 275m; 7.5m @ 0.55 g/t Au

Other Targets

Holes 19-02 and 19-03 were drilled from the ice at geophysical targets within the nose of a fold at the NW extent of Sandy Lake. Neither hole intersected significant mineralisation, however the Company has an additional seven target areas for drilling in the current season.

About the Sandy Lake District

The Sandy Lake Gold Project comprises an approximate 51,000 hectares of contiguous mineral claim units in the underexplored Sandy Lake Archean Greenstone Belt in Northwestern Ontario. G2 Goldfields Inc. has the right to earn up to 70% interest in the W series of claims (6,000 hectares) and a 100% interest in mineral claims surrounding the W Group totaling 45,000 hectares. Sandy Lake is located approximately 225 km north of the historical Red Lake, Ontario mining district (30 million ounces Au produced)

G2 Goldfields Inc. wishes to thank the Chief, Council and members of the Sandy Lake First Nation for their support and assistance as we continue to build upon a long-term beneficial relationship of economic and community development. The Company is committed to best practices in all aspects of its exploration efforts and strongly supports local partnerships.


Drill core is logged and sampled in a secure core storage facility located in Sandy Lake, Ontario. Core samples from the program are cut in half, using a diamond cutting saw, and are sent to SGS Canada Inc. in Red Lake, Ontario, which is an accredited mineral analysis laboratory, for analysis. All samples are analysed for gold using standard Fire Assay-AA (atomic absorption) techniques. Samples returning over 10.0 g/t gold are analyzed utilizing standard fire assay-gravimetric methods. Certified gold reference standards, blanks and field duplicates are routinely inserted into the sample stream, as part of G2 Goldfield’s quality control/quality assurance program (QA/QC). No QA/QC issues were noted with the results reported herein.

All scientific and technical information in this press release has been prepared under the supervision of Dan Noone (Director of G2 Goldfields Inc.), a “qualified person” within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Noone (B.Sc Geology, MBA) is a member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists.
