Highlights from the trenching and sampling program across the COD Vein North Target, which has yet to be "drill tested" includes a grab sample of 15.45 g/t Au, 159 g/t Ag, and 114.5 g/t tellurium and a chip sample across 0.4m of 21.7 g/t Au and 216 g/t Ag and 149 g/t tellurium. Drilling of this area is fully permitted and is scheduled to commence in 2019.

The 2018 Fall drilling program consisted of 11 diamond drill holes (COD18-61-COD18-71) targeting the southern extension of the COD Vein mineralization within 25 meters of previously drilled holes COD18-45 and COD18-46. These holes were drilled at 45 and 50 degree dips to the west from the same site and intersected high grade gold as highlighted below:

  • - COD18-45 intersected of 50.1 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 375 g/t silver over 2.05 meter core length including 167.5 g/t gold, 1,370 g/t silver and >500 g/t tellurium over 0.46 meter core length (GGX News Release of August 15, 2018).
