Gold Plus Mining Initiates Work Program on Its “Lawyers” East & West Properties Contiguous to Benchmark Metals Gold Discoveries
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gold Plus Mining Inc. (“Gold Plus” or the “Company”) (CSE :GPMI) is pleased to announce that it has engaged Longford
Exploration Services Ltd. to assist the Company in designing a work program for its 100% owned Lawyers East and West claim blocks that are contiguous to Benchmark Metal Inc.’s “Lawyers” Gold and
Silver project in BC’s famous “Golden Horseshoe” region, that recently reported drilling intercepts of 2,360 g/t silver and 11.30 g/t gold over a 1 meter interval as well as 1.44 g/t gold
equivalent over 102 meters (see press release dated February 11th and Jan 31st, 2020 respectively).
The initial work program will be based on a compilation of historic work from the Lawyer East and West claims and nearby projects that are now underway. This data compilation will be followed up with a field program designed to complement historic work and recent discoveries in the area. The field program will be focused on sampling and geologic mapping of highly prospective and mineralized areas and may include geochemical surveying. Samples will be taken from mineralized areas and analyzed for precious metals content shortly after field work is completed.
Neighboring Benchmark Metals announced on August 27th 2020, the discovery of the new “Marmot Zone” that contains mineralized structures broad zones of alteration, veining, and sulphide mineralization, returning samples of up to 61.3 g/t gold and 3,890 g/t silver. The discovery of the Marmot zone is trending South East from Benchmarks initial Cliff Creek zone discovery and towards Gold Plus’s Lawyers East claim block that is contiguous to the South East of Benchmark’s Lawyers property. The above information provides an indication of the exploration potential of the Lawyers East claim block and may not be representative of expected results.
President and CEO Spencer Smyl states, “With Gold prices recently exceeding $2,000 per Oz and multiple recent gold discoveries on neighboring claims, we are excited about the potential of our highly prospective Lawyers East and West claims. Gold Plus now has three projects in some of the most prolific mining camps in Canada: the Golden Triangle in British Columbia, the Red Lake mining camp in north west Ontario and the Abitibi region of Quebec. We plan to conduct work programs on all three properties in order to obtain samples and define priority targets for upcoming drill programs.”
