Grande Portage Resources Ltd. (OTC: GPTRF) (TSX-V: GPG) ("Grande Portage" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the initial drill results from the Goat Vein during the 2017 season. This part of the program consisted of eight diamond drill holes from two platforms, K and L Pads, for a total length of 1952 meters. Additional geological geological mapping and sampling was conducted to the east and north of the vein system.
The drilling results further validate the continuity of the Goat Vein structure over a confirmed distance of 300 metres. However, when combined with the surface mapping the new strike length has increased to 650 metres at a minimum. Importantly, the drilling also shows significant potential for the development of mineable subsidiary veins in both the hanging and footwalls of the Goat Creek structure. A summary of mineralized intervals of the drilling on the Goat Vein is shown in the table below. In addition, Hole 17L-2 returned strong silver values with the interval 164.53-166.0m showing 35.4 ppm Ag.
**Note: "H.W" is hanging wall and "F.W" is foot wall.
Ian Klassen, President of the Company remarked, "This is a terrifc re-affirmation of the emerging mesothermal vein system we have at the Herbert. This results add nicely to what is a growing deposit of almost 200,000 ounces (Indicated category) already identified. Mesothermal veins are known for their large size and continuation to depth, and therefore, are a major source of the world's gold production. Veins are usually less than two meters wide and often occur in parallel sets just like we see at the Herbert deposit".
The Company will announce more results, in due course, as they are returned from the laboratory.
Carl Hale, CPG, a geologist of more than 40 years' experience, will direct the field program and will act as the qualified person as that term is defined under NI 43-101.
