Goldsource Mines Inc. Announces Further Drill Results at Eagle Mountain
19.5 Metres Grading 1.38 gpt Au
11.5 Metres Grading 3.37 gpt Au
Vancouver, Jan 6, 2021 - Goldsource Mines Inc. (TSXV: GXS) (OTCQB: GXSFF) (FSE: G5M) ("Goldsource" or the "Company") is pleased to announce additional 2020 expansion and in-fill drill results for the Eagle Mountain deposit as well as a new gold discovery at the Ann Prospect. Both the Eagle Mountain deposit and Ann Prospect are located within the Eagle Mountain Gold Project ("Eagle Mountain") in Guyana, South America. Newly reported results are for 11 core holes totalling 1,839 metres (see attached Figures and Tables below). Approximately 16,300 metres of core drilling was completed in 2020.
An estimated 34,000 metres of drilling has been completed in the last three drill seasons at Eagle Mountain with a cut-off date for drill results of November 7, 2020 to be used in the Mineral Resource Estimation update to be announced in early 2021.
- Eagle Mountain Gold Deposit - Baboon Area:
- Results for three (3) core holes totalling 648 metres.
- Drill holes EME20-72 and EME20-73 have confirmed the expansion of three near-surface sub-horizontal gold mineralized zones (Zone 1 to 3) to the southwest of the Eagle Mountain deposit (Figure 2 and 3).
- Together with the results from No. 1 Hill area, immediately north of Baboon (refer to the Company news releases on July 29, 2020, and October 22, 2020), drilling has extended the mineralized footprint of the Eagle Mountain deposit by approximately 400 metres to the southwest (Figure 2).
- Highlight drill hole EME20-71 intersected 6.0 metres grading 3.06 grams per tonne ("gpt") gold ("Au") in saprolite at the base of Zone 1 (Figures 2 and 3).
- Eagle Mountain Gold Deposit - Kilroy Area:
- Resource in-fill drill results for three (3) core holes totalling 275 metres.
- Highlight drill hole EMM20-001 intersected 54.0 metres grading 1.72 gpt Au, including a higher grade sub interval of 12.0 metres grading 6.91 gpt Au (Figure 2).
- In-fill drill results at the Kilroy area support the historical results and the continuity of mineralization, including the presence of multiple sub-horizontal gold mineralized zones.
- Ann Prospect - Minnehaha area:
- Results for four (4) core holes totalling 766 metres.
- Ann represents a new near-surface discovery, 1.0 kilometre south of the Powis target, along the north-south trending Salbora-Powis structural corridor (Figures 1 and 2).
- Highlight drill hole EME20-081 exhibits similar characteristics to mineralized breccias in Salbora and Toucan with a breccia interval of 3.0 metres grading 5.40 gpt Au.
- Highlight drill hole EME-20-079 intersected 11.5 metres grading 3.37 gpt Au from surface, including a higher grade sub interval of 7.5 metres grading 5.21 gpt Au starting at 4.0 metres and hosted in unconsolidated near-surface material.
The Company's exploration program in 2020 was designed to expand and confirm the continuity of mineralization of the Eagle Mountain and Salbora deposits for an updated mineral resource and to make additional discoveries within the broader area of Eagle Mountain.
Steve Parsons, P. Eng, and CEO of Goldsource, commented, "The latest results, once again, deliver on the 2020 objectives both in terms of demonstrating scope for further strike extensions at Eagle Mountain and in showcasing the prospectivity of the project with a new discovery, the Ann Prospect. We look forward to the upcoming announcement of the resource update and pushing forward in 2021 to further explore current prospects for potential increase in gold resources and to complete further in-fill drilling to substantially convert inferred mineral resources to indicated for 2021 pre-feasibility work."

(1) EMD defines core holes drilled in-house.
EME defines core holes drilled by drilling contractor.
EMM defines core holes drilled by drilling contractor (man-portable rig).
(2) True widths are 70 to 100% of drilled widths.
(3) Cutoff grade of 0.3 gpt Au.
(4) Unconsolidated materials.
(5) Base of historical tailings into mineralized granodiorite (saprolite).
All sample preparation and geochemical analyses were completed by Actlabs Guyana Inc. in Georgetown, Guyana. Hole EME20-080 intersected mineralization below the Company's cut off grade of 0.3 gpt Au.
Eagle Mountain Deposit
In-fill drilling in the Kilroy area of the Eagle Mountain deposit has confirmed the geologic and resource models containing several mineralized sub-horizontal (near-surface dip-slope) zones (Zone 1 to 3) with similar grades and continuity.
Expansion drilling in the No. 1 Hill and Baboon areas has extended the mineralized footprint of Eagle Mountain deposit by an estimated 400 metres to the southwest beyond the 2014 PEA Mineral Resource outline. Gold mineralization in expanded areas is present in multiple near-surface sub-horizontal zones (Zone 1 to 3). These prospects are open for further lateral extensions.
The Ann Prospect is a recent low cost option-to-purchase acquisition covering 10 hectares within the Company's Eagle Mountain Prospecting Licence of 4,786 hectares.
The Company's exploration program made a near-surface discovery at this newly acquired prospect. This new discovery is located 2.5 kilometres along trend from Salbora and 1.0 kilometre along trend from the previous most southernly known mineralisation at Powis, thereby expanding the prospective strike of the Salbora-Powis trend to 4.0 kilometres from Ann in the south to Montgomery in the north.
These more recent results will not be included in the pending mineral resource update.
Q1 2021 Drill Program
In January, there will be three (3) core drills operating at Eagle Mountain. Initially, these drill rigs are completing expansion holes for the Toucan Prospect, Ann Prospect, and in-fill holes for the Eagle Mountain deposit. A Mineral Resource update is currently being finalized to be announced in early 2021. Subsequently, a NI 43-101 Technical Report will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days.
