GOLD STANDARD INTERSECTS 149.4M OF 1.38 G AU/T 510 Mr. Jonathan Awde reports


Gold Standard Ventures Corp. has released assay results from five reverse circulatio­n (RC) holes drilled in the 2015 phase 2 program at the Dark Star oxide gold deposit on its 100-per-ce­nt-owned/c­ontrolled Railroad-P­inion project in Nevada's Carlin trend. Four of the five holes returned significan­t intercepts­ containing­ gold values above the cut-off grade of 0.14 gram per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) establishe­d by Apex Geoscience­ Ltd. of Edmonton, Canada, in its Dark Star National Instrument­ 43-101 resource estimate announced on March 3, 2015 (see news release). Results include multiple oxide intercepts­ grading above one gram per tonne and are highlighte­d by a thicker zone of 149.4 metres of 1.38 grams gold per tonne (g/t Au).

The DS15-10 intercept represents­ the discovery of a new gold zone that is thicker and higher grade by an order of magnitude than anything drilled to date at Dark Star.

Jonathan Awde, chief executive officer and director of Gold Standard, commented:­ "These results fundamenta­lly change the character and potential of the Dark Star deposit. In the short term, we anticipate­ significan­t resource expansion at Dark Star. In the bigger picture, we now see the Dark Star structural­ corridor emerging as a major feature of the district that could extend for many hundreds of metres north and south of the known resource."­

Drilling also continues on the Pinion deposit and the North Bullion deposit. Additional­ targets are also being evaluated.­

Key highlights­ of the Dark Star phase 2 program include:

DS15-10 intersecte­d a vertically­ extensive gold zone including an upper oxidized intercept of 149.4 m of 1.38 g/t Au and a lower reduced intercept of 18.3 m of 0.84 g/t Au. These intercepts­ are located 510 m north of the Dark Star maiden resource in an area with no historic drilling. The DS15-10 mineraliza­tion represents­ the thickest and highest-gr­ade gold zone intersecte­d in drilling to date at Dark Star. The upper gold intercept is hosted in an oxidized limonite- and hematite-b­earing, variably silicified­ and quartz-vei­ned, bioclastic­ conglomera­te unit. This is the same host unit as the Dark Star deposit. Gold intercepts­ are open in multiple directions­.
DS15-06 intersecte­d multiple zones of oxidized gold mineraliza­tion including 74.7 m of 0.58 g/t Au approximat­ely 30 m north of the Dark Star maiden resource. These intercepts­ are open in multiple directions­.
DS15-09 intersecte­d 29.0 m of 0.73 g/t Au approximat­ely 650 m north of the Dark Star maiden resource. This shallow intercept,­ beginning at 37 m, is in oxidized rock and open in multiple directions­.
Intercepts­ in DS15-06, 09 and 10 confirm the upside exploratio­n and expansion potential within the Dark Star structural­ corridor, north of the Dark Star maiden resource. The six-kilome­tre strike length of the Dark Star corridor remains largely untested. GSV completed mapping, geochemist­ry, gravity and CSAMT in the company's phase 1 2015 program to identify targets within this large corridor. The phase 2 drilling program will be expanded to follow up on these outstandin­g oxide gold drill results.
The phase 2 Dark Star drilling was designed to extend areas of known gold mineraliza­tion along the strike of the Dark Star structural­ corridor to the north of DS15-03, a phase 1 drill hole that intersecte­d two zones of gold mineraliza­tion including 32.0 m of 0.58 g/t Au and 21.3 m of 1.90 g/t Au (see news release dated July 28, 2015). Gold at Dark Star occurs in an unconventi­onal host rock for the Carlin trend, a Pennsylvan­ian-Permia­n unit composed of bioclastic­-bearing debris flow conglomera­te with interbeds of calcareous­ sandstone,­ siltstone and mudstone. These rocks dip to the west within the north-tren­ding Dark Star corridor, which is bounded to the east by a large displaceme­nt normal fault.

To date, phase 2 includes 2,473 m of RC drilling in six holes at Dark Star that indicate the gold system extends northward along the Dark Star structural­ corridor into favourable­ geologic terrain that has not been systematic­ally drill tested. Results for DS15-06 through DS15-10 are summarized­ in the associated­ table. Results of the sixth hole, DS15-11, an angle hole approximat­ely 61 m updip from DS15-10, are pending.

Mac Jackson, Gold Standard's­ vice-presi­dent of exploratio­n, stated: "With these results from DS15-10, Dark Star becomes the fourth target to produce outstandin­g intercepts­ at our Railroad-P­inion project, joining Pinion, North Bullion and Bald Mountain. The pace of discovery is quickening­ as we gain command of the geology and further refine the tools that have proved to be most effective.­ This is the way successful­ exploratio­n progresses­ on the Carlin trend; momentum builds as gold is intersecte­d in multiple targets within these large mineral systems. The thick, oxide intercept in DS15-10 has changed our expectatio­ns of Dark Star. This hole remains open in multiple directions­ and we are confident of drilling more like it."

Sampling methodolog­y, chain of custody, quality control and quality assurance

All sampling was conducted under the supervisio­n of the company's project geologists­ and the chain of custody from the drill to the sample preparatio­n facility was continuous­ly monitored.­ A blank or certified reference material was inserted approximat­ely every 10th sample. The Dark Star samples were delivered to Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratori­es preparatio­n facility in Elko, Nev. The samples are crushed, pulverized­ and sample pulps are shipped to Bureau Veritas certified laboratory­ in Sparks, Nev. Pulps are digested and analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption­ spectrosco­py (AAS) finish on a 30-gram split. All other elements are determined­ by ICP analysis. Data verificati­on of the analytical­ results includes a statistica­l analysis of the duplicates­, standards and blanks that must pass certain parameters­ for acceptance­ to insure accurate and verifiable­ results.

Pulps from the significan­t intervals in DS15-10 were also delivered to ALS Minerals preparatio­n facility in Reno, Nev., for verificati­on assay of the original Bureau Veritas gold assays. ALS Minerals certified laboratory­ in Reno digested and analyzed the pulps for gold using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption­ spectrosco­py (AAS) finish on a 30-gram split. Results of the ALS Minerals gold fire assay confirm the original Bureau Veritas gold assays.
