Vancouver, British Columbia, Mar 24, 2021 (Newsfile Corp via COMTEX) -- Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 24, 2021) - Golden Goliath Resources Ltd. (otc pink:GGTHF) /zigman2/quotes/207747654/delayed DE:GGZ -1.57%
Golden Goliath continues to drill the large IP anomaly on the north shore of Beauregard Lake called the whale anomaly, with drill hole K21-23 being completed on line 2000E to a depth of 152m. A 3m core length of massive and bedded sulphides was intersected with pyrite, minor chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite. This intersection is at the same depth as the sulphide zone in drill hole K21-22 at 120-124m, or 60m below surface. The intercepts are 200m or 660 feet apart on strike and in a zone parallel to the Pakwash Fault. Thin rhyoliite zones have been noted in K21-23 on the south side of the sulphide zone which itself is hosted in basalt. Both sulphide intercepts were guided by the strong metal factor anomaly that resulted from the sharp low resistivity of 10 ohm metres.

Whole rock lithochemistry is being performed to search for possible sodium depletion zones that would mark a hot water vent area in a typical VMS setting. Chert-tuffite layers occur next to the massive sulphides which would be a regional marker for a VMS deposit.
Other shear zones with disseminated sulphides were intersected in drill hole K21-23 as in in drill hole K21-22 which are being analyzed for gold as well as multi elements.
It appears there is a wide zone of volcanics extending east along the north shore of the lake and north of the Pakwash Fault that needs to be explored further.
The drill is now turning on drill hole K21-24 on line 1400E, which is 600m west of drill hole K21-23 (Figure 3). This hole will test another strong metal factor anomaly within the "whale" and double IP anomaly along the Pakwash Fault.

Company CEO Paul Sorbara, PGeo, comments: "We are very pleased with this new development. It seems to me that we have encountered a whole new mineralizing system. It is not the model we are pursuing, and we continue to search for high-grade gold. However, it is what it is and it shows that mineralizing systems were at work here and it is up ice from the gold grains in till found on the West Grid."
