Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 23, 2021) - Golden Independence (CSE: IGLD) (OTCQB: GIDMF) (FSE: 6NN) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the next series of drill results from its recently completed 2020 resource expansion drill program at the Independence project, south of Battle Mountain, Nevada. Results from these three reverse circulation (RC) holes include:
0.845 g/t gold and 92 g/t silver over 130 feet (39.6 metres)
including 1.436 g/t gold and 179.5 g/t silver over 65 feet (19.8 metres)
including 3.318 g/t gold and 581.6 g/t silver over 15 feet (4.6 metres)
and including 1.274 g/t gold and 50 g/t silver over 20 feet (7.6 metres)
0.521 g/t gold and 4.7 g/t silver over 165 feet (50.3 metres)
including 0.697 g/t gold and 7.0 g/t silver over 65 feet (19.8 metres)
0.438 g/t gold and 8.7 g/t silver over 170 feet (51.8 metres)
including 1.287 g/t gold and 20.8 g/t silver over 15 feet (4.6 metres)
and 0.746 g/t gold and 23.9 g/t silver over 20 feet (6.1 metres)
"These are three of four holes testing the oxide resource to depth which also include a nice surprise of a higher grade pocket with significant silver," commented Golden Independence President Tim Henneberry. "Long intervals of + 0.5 g/t gold with higher grade intervals and some high grade pockets continue to confirm and expand the historic oxide resource," he continued.
"This third set of assay results further supports our belief that we will be able to significantly expand the historic oxide resource at the Independence project in the near term," remarked Golden Independence CEO Christos Doulis. "In addition to significant higher grade gold intercepts, recent drill results such as hole AGEI-28 demonstrate the Independence project's potential to host significant silver mineralization as well."

All assay results are drill widths not true widths, which is undetermined at this time.
All samples were shipped to the ALS Minerals prep lab in Elko, Nevada with analyses completed at the ALS Minerals Lab in Reno, Nevada. Both facilities are ISO 9001:2015 and ISO/IEC 17025:2017 certified. All samples are analyzed utilizing ALS ME-ICP41 procedure, an aqua regia digestion with ICP-AES finish, with gold determined by the Au-AA23 procedure, a 30-gram fire assay with AAS finish. ALS Minerals is independent from Golden Independence. Golden Independence institutes a rigorous QA/QC program of duplicate samples, blanks and standards.
