Guyana Goldstrike Inc. (GYA.V) provided an update from its ongoing exploration program at its 13,500 acre (54 sq. kms) Marudi Gold Project, located within the prospective and prolific Guiana Shield of South America.

With the anticipated end of the rainy reason in late August, the Company plans to resume its exploration program with the commencement of Phase Two.

Highlights of 2019-20 Planned Phase Two Exploration Program

  • - Diamond drilling of up to 2,500 metres at the newly discovered Toucan Ridge zone and other targeted areas that have been identified by geophysics, trenching and outcrops

    - 7 priority areas of interest - Marudi Spur Ridge, Peace Creek, July Creek, Success Creek, Kimberley Ridge, East Marudi, and Marudi North West extension areas are to be explored by mapping, sampling and trenching

    - The Company will focus its initial trenching at Kimberley Ridge and S uccess Creek with the intention of generating new drill target areas

    - The Company will commission a 3D geophysical interpretation west of the Mazoa Hill zone, which includes the target areas: Pancake, Kimberley Ridge, and Success Creek

    - The Company plans to re-log and re-sample historic drill core from Mazoa Hill and Marudi North areas to standardize a new data base

    - Upon initial success from trenching and drilling the Company may elect to increase its diamond drilling program beyond 2,500 metres

Highlights of Completed Phase One Exploration Program 2018-19

  • - The Company explored and evaluated 4 of 11 identified areas of interest for gold mineralization mainly in the central area of the Property comprising approximately 15 % of the total Property area. The areas explored to date were Paunch, Pancake, Marudi North (west extension), and Toucan Ridge

    - The Toucan Ridge mineralized zone (750 x 750 metres) was discovered along a 1.75 km area of interest

    - Phase One consisted of a total of 18 trenches representing over 2,500 metres

    - Over 850 assays samples were collected and sent to Act Labs for processing with results received

    - Please see the "Table of Significant Gold Assay Results To Date" below

    - A 250 metre length of quartzite-metachert (host rock) discovery was identified that extends to the southeast from the Toucan Ridge area

    - A second discovery of quartzite-metachert northeast of Toucan Ridge at East Marudi was identified approximately 2,300 metres northeast of trench TTR-18-06

    - A geophysical survey of the entire Property was completed by helicopter with 1,201-line km of flight lines covering 13,500 acres (54 sq. km) at 50 metre line spacing

    - An independent geophysical report was completed analyzing the magnetic and radiometric data

    - 16 anomalous 2D magnetic targets were identified and selected based on their strong magnetic susceptibility response, linear trend, and topographic highs

    - 5 anomalous 3D magnetic targets were selected based on favorable quartzite - metachert host rock association for continued exploration

    - A 5 km anomalous magnetic trend was identified at the Mazoa Hill zone that hosts the 43-101 compliant resource estimate and is less than 10% drilled

Locke Goldsmith M Sc. P Eng. P Geo., VP Exploration stated,

"We are very pleased with the results and accomplishments of last year's Phase One exploration. I am encouraged that the geophysical survey interpretation shows the existence of 21 magnetic anomalies on our Property. The Company looks forward to Phase Two exploration which will focus on these anomalous areas including additional trenching and geophysical interpretation of new targets not yet explored. Most importantly, we look forward to drilling the newly discovered Toucan Ridge mineralized zone as this represents our highest priority targets for confirmation diamond drilling at depth."
