To date, a staggering 64 holes overall have encountered intercepts of this style of sulfide mineralization, which consists of a combination of galena, sphalerite and pyrrhotite in semi-massive to massive veins, strands, interstices in brecciated zones and/or as stringers throughout the rock.
The extensive mineralization system of the Surebet Zone proper now encompasses an area of 1.4 square kilometers. More than 20,000 of the planned 27,000 drill meters of the campaign have been completed. As Goliath points out, the Surebet system remains open in all directions and drilling continues. To date, assay results from the laboratories on all 2022 drilling are pending. Goliath will present these as soon as they are received, compiled and interpreted - exciting prospects for this fall, then!
Highlights of the holes now reported include, for example, hole GD-22-79 drilled from Pad 1, the furthest west pad to date (1.2 km west of Surebet Main), which intersected 46, 24 m interval from 337.86 m to 384.10 m, consisting of quartz stockwork and breccias with strong interstitial galena (locally up to 10%), sphalerite (locally up to 30%) and pyrrhotite (locally up to 30%); and hole GD-22-83, drilled from pad 17 (150 metres south of Surebet Main), which intersected several mineralized intervals including a 17. 65 metre interval from 87.47 metres to 105.12 metres and a 51.60 metre interval from 129.90 metres to 181.50 metres consisting of quartz veins, stockwork and breccias with strong localized galena (locally up to 5%), sphalerite (locally up to 5%) and pyrrhotite (locally up to 10%).
Several drill holes, including GD-22-83 (from pad 17), GD-22-77 (from pad 10), GD-22-36 (from pad 11), and GD-22-68 (from pad 16), have intersected multiple zones characterized by Surebet Zone-like mineralization, including galena, and textures, suggesting the presence of multiple stacked mineralized shear zones that are part of the same mineralized system that remains open in all directions.
Continuity and extent of Surebet Zone system revealed.
That Goliath has encountered this mineralization, typical of the Surebet Zone, in 64 drill holes over an area of more than 1.4 square meters clearly demonstrates the continuity and extent of the system, which also remains open. As Goliath CEO Roger Rosmus also points out, the occurrence of comparable zones of similar mineralization and textures in the "East Extension" area greatly expands the known parameters of the Surebet discovery and once again confirms the large extent of the Surebet system.
Goliath's primary focus with the 2022 drilling campaign is on infill drilling that could be used for resource calculation. In addition, they plan to test the Surebet mineralization system at depth over an extensive area extending west to Lake Pad and New Gold to the north. This is being done by planning multiple drill locations as far west as Real Deal to reach the Surebet system at depth, based on the model created from this year's drill logs, 2021 drill logs and results, and 2020 trench sample results. Numerous, distinct samples collected on the Real Deal and Cloud 9 substructures, believed to be associated with the Surebet Zone, returned significant gold and silver grades, confirming the presence of a large, gold and silver-rich mineralized system at depth, according to Goliath. The company's geologists interpret these structures as conductors that have carried fluids to surface.
Conclusion: Goliath is pushing ahead full speed with drilling at Surebet and has already successfully completed a large part of the planned drill campaign. Drills continue to encounter thick intervals of mineralization typical of the Surebet Zone, which averaged 6.29 g/t gold equivalent over 5.87 meters of width in the 2021 drill campaign - over a total of 24 holes! Should these results, or similar, also be achieved for the 2022 drilling campaign, we believe this would be a huge success and could give the Goliath share price a significant rerating higher. Of course, Goliath Resources is still a risky speculation, but with repeated drilling successes of similar looking mineralization of galena and sphalerite in the drill core compared to 2021 drill core could significantly de-risks the assays outcome and the potential would become even clearer once confirmed. In any case, the decision is getting closer.
According to §34b WpHG and according to paragraph 48f paragraph 5 BörseG (Austria) we would like to point out that principals, partners, authors and employees of GOLDINVEST Consulting GmbH hold or may hold shares of Goliath Resources and therefore a possible conflict of interest exists. We also cannot exclude that other stock letters, media or research firms discuss the stocks we recommend during the same period. Therefore, symmetrical information and opinion generation may occur during this period. Furthermore, there is a consulting or other service contract between Goliath Resources and GOLDINVEST Consulting GmbH, which means that a conflict of interest exists.
