VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 16, 2021 / Gold Mountain Mining Corp. ("Gold Mountain" or the "Company") (TSXV:GMTN)(OTCQB:GMTNF)(FRA:5XFA) is pleased to announce assay results from its Phase 2 drill program at the Elk Gold Project located near Merritt, BC . The high-grade assay results continue to extend the Siwash North zone's established mineralization down-dip and indicate clear vein continuity at depth near the project's open pits.
- Drilling Highlights Include:
- 1.30m grading 10.59 g/t Au including 0.30m of 45.60 g/t Au
- 1.10m grading 17.54 g/t Au including 0.50m of 31.10 g/t Au
- 0.90m grading 14.59 g/t Au including 0.30m of 21.30 g/t Au
- 1.40m grading 5.85 g/t Au including 0.40m of 19.30 g/t Au
- Gold Mountain's Phase 2 drill program continues to methodically extend the Elk's shallow, open-pit amenable vein systems as well as its deeper, high-grade mineralization in the Siwash North Zone.
- Phase 2 encapsulated the exploration of the Lake, South and Elusive zones, 3 of the other 9 drill tested mineralized zones on the property.
- Based on the strong intercepts the Company struck early on in the program, Gold Mountain increased the total Phase 2 meterage by 30% from 10,000m to 13,000m.
"In Phase 1 we showed how impactful a well-planned and methodical drill program can be, as we increased our resource by 45% off an 8,700m program. Phase 2 continues this strategy of infilling and stepping out from the project's well-established mineralization and we're confident that assay results like these highlight intercepts will have a strong impact on our updated resource estimate due this fall" said Kevin Smith, CEO and Director of Gold Mountain. "Now that the mine is transitioning to commercial production, Gold Mountain's focus is to scale our resource through proceeds of mining and uphold our commitment of getting the Elk past a million ounces."
Phase 2 Drilling Program
Gold Mountain and its exploration contractor HEG & Associates ("HEG") followed the success of its Phase 1 drill program by continuing to perform infill and step-out drilling on its well-established vein systems in Siwash North. The highlight assays were intercepted along the 1300, 2600 and 2700 veins which extend to the west and are located in close proximity of the project's historical open pits.
The highlighted intercepts continue to demonstrate strong gold grades and lateral extensions in all three vein systems. By hitting significant mineralization, the Company continues to expand its vein models which are anticipated to add additional ounces to its planned resource estimate update this fall.
Due to the initial mineralization the Company intercepted in Siwash North, Gold Mountain added an additional 3,000 m of drilling to its Phase 2 exploration program, taking Phase 2's total drill meterage to 13,000 m.
In addition to Siwash North drilling, the Company explored an additional 3 mineralized satellite zones at the Elk Gold project during its Phase 2 program which include the Lake Zone, South Zone and the highly-prospective Elusive Zone. The Company expects to release assay results from these zones shortly.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) Measures and Analytical Procedures
Gold Mountain adheres to a strict QA/QC monitoring program that includes the insertion of blanks, standards and duplicates into the sample stream, as well as the re-submission of select samples for check assays by an independent third-party laboratory. Core samples were analyzed by Actlabs in Kamloops BC using Fire Assay methods with a gravimetric finish for results over 10g/t gold.
No material QA/QC issues were noted with the results received from the laboratory.
The foregoing technical information was approved by Grant Carlson, P.Eng., a Qualified Person, as defined under National Instrument 43-101 and the Chief Operating Officer for the Company.
