Galleon Gold's West Cache Gold Project Shines in Timmins

Results include 7.66 g/t Au over 10.0 meters

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - January 26, 2021) - Galleon Gold Corp. (TSXV: GGO) (the "Company" or "Galleon Gold") is pleased to announce additional high-grade Zone #9 intercepts at its 100% owned West Cache Gold Project, Timmins, Ontario.


  • WC-20-097 intersected 7.66 g/t Au over 10.0 m, from 224 to 234 m including a sub-interval of 21.89 g/t Au over 2.0 m
  • WC-20-095 intersected 3.24 g/t Au over 9.0 m, from 290 to 299 m including a sub-interval of 9.47 g/t Au over 2.0 m

"We are pleased to see that the widths of the Zone #9 intercepts continue to consistently vary between 8 and 12 meters as we test the orientation of the Zone #9 mineralized shoot. We also benefit from the distinct nature of the sulfide mineralization as it enables us to visually identify Zone #9 in real time, which aids drill hole planning as we wait for final assays," comments R. David Russell, CEO and President of Galleon Gold.

Qualified Person and Quality Control

The technical content of this release has been reviewed and approved by Chris Dupont, P. Eng, a "Qualified Person" as defined in National Instrument 43-101 -Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Quality Control and Assurance procedures and protocol include the insertion of one blank or standard for every 10 samples submitted for assay in addition to the insertion of standards, duplicates, and blanks inserted by AGAT Laboratories using the prep facility in Timmins, ON and analytical lab in Mississauga, ON. All gold values utilize common fire assay procedures with an AA finish, although assays over 10 g/t are re-analyzed by fire assay with a gravimetric finish. All samples reported have been checked against Company and Lab standards, duplicates and blanks. Sample prep includes all sample material crushed to 75% passing 2 mm with a 300 g split pulverized to 90% passing 200 mesh to create the 30 gram sample for fire assay. All core logging and sampling were completed in-house at the Company core facility in Timmins, ON. Core produced in the field is delivered to the Company's Timmins warehouse every morning with all logging, cutting, labeling and bagging completed by supervised personnel. Bagged core samples for assay are picked up twice a week by AGAT personnel for delivery to their prep facility across town.
