VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESWIRE / May 19, 2020 / Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX:GRC)(OTCQB:GRCAF) (the 'Company' or 'GRC'), is pleased to announce results for the second round of rock-chip samples taken at the Declaration, Juniper and Fitch target areas at the Gold Springs project. Detailed field mapping was completed for these three targets and described in the press release of April 15, 2020. As part of the mapping effort, rock chip samples were collected on these targets to support the development of future drill programs.
All three targets are epithermal gold systems within the Jumbo Trend which is a +5-kilometer gold belt hosting two of GRC's mineral resource estimates. The Juniper and Fitch targets are newly-identified and bring the total number of outcropping gold targets within the Gold Springs project to twenty-eight.
Matias Herrero, GRC's President and CEO, stated 'We are pleased to not only continue to advance the quality targets we have identified thus far, but to add new targets to our list of future drill targets. Our field work is continuing as we complete detailed mapping and sampling of our numerous targets at Gold Springs with the objective of prioritizing and developing future drill plans. We are excited with the results we have gotten thus far and look forward to sharing information on additional targets as our work progresses.'
The Juniper target is located just east of the Declaration target and extends east to the North Jumbo Resource. Gold grades from GRC's sampling above 0.25 g/t Au, which is the cutoff grade for the adjoining North Jumbo resource, are seen throughout the entire Juniper area and are not restricted to vein material. This highlights Juniper as a bulk target, with an exposed area of 600 metres by 400 metres, and remains open to the north where the possible extension goes under post-mineral cover. The average grade of samples above resource cutoff is 1.0 g/t Au and 30.1 g/t silver. High-grade +1 g/t gold grades are obtained from vein, stockwork and altered host rocks.
Mr. Herrero further commented, 'Juniper represents an exciting new target for our company. It is drill ready, has produced excellent gold values on surface over a broad area, is in close proximity to our North Jumbo resource, and has all the characteristics of a large, bulk minable system. Juniper will be a priority for GRC as we move to our next drill program which will focus on expanding our existing resources and growing our company.'

Declaration represents a high-grade target within the Jumbo Trend. The Declaration target is a vein system with a dominant 0.5 metre wide vein that connects with the historically mined Independence vein system to the south and is traceable for 800 metres along strike to the north. The Declaration vein consistently returns +1 g/t Au with variable silver grades from 5 - 55 g/t Ag. The highest-grade sample returned 9.46 g/t Au and 55.5 g/t silver. Andesite adjacent to the vein is strongly altered with cross cutting stockwork quartz veining and zones of silicified breccias. Alteration, stockwork and breccia zones also returned significant gold and silver values. Additional work will include cultural clearances on the northern portion of this system in preparation for future drilling.

The Fitch target area is 200 metres due west of the South Jumbo Resource and lies along a caldera margin identified through ZTEM geophysics. Alteration is traceable for 1.5 kilometres along strike, with veining and breccia textures best exposed in the northern section which returned the best gold values. All significant gold and silver grades are obtained from vein and breccia material from historical mine trenches and float found down slope of them. The highest grades are found in brecciated and altered andesite from a historical mine dump returning values of 1.47 g/t Au and 43.1 g/t silver. Fitch appears to be a high-level expression of an epithermal system with similar characteristics to the North and South Jumbo resource areas. Future work on the Fitch target includes cultural clearances in preparation for drilling.

About Gold Springs Resource Corp.
Gold Springs Resource Corp. is focused on the exploration and expansion of the gold and silver resources of its PEA-stage Gold Springs project located on the border of Nevada and Utah, USA. The Company believes Gold Springs has the potential to host multi-million ounces of gold. The project is situated in the prolific Great Basin of Western USA, one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world.
The Qualified Person on the Gold Springs property is Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration of Gold Springs Resource Corp. and he has reviewed and approved the content of this press release. Mr. Moore has more than 30 years of mineral exploration experience and is a Professional Geologist and Registered Member of the Society of Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration. The Qualified Person verified the data disclosed herein for its geological reasonableness, checked all the inputs, and verified the analytical data.
Assays were performed in Sparks, Nevada by ALS Geochemistry, an ISO 9001:2000 Certified and independent laboratory. Gold was analyzed by fire assay of a 30-gram sample with an AAS finish with samples assaying greater than 10 g/t re-assayed using a 30-gram sample and a gravity finish. All other elements were analyzed by a four-acid leach ICP method.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control
Approximately 2-3 kg for each rock chip sample was sent to the laboratory. Five percent of the samples submitted by the Company are standards for QA/QC purposes. In addition, the laboratory also includes duplicates of samples, standards and blanks for QA/QC purposes. The results of these check assays are reviewed prior to the release of data. All assays are also reviewed for their geological context and checked against field descriptions.
