Gossan Acquires Additional Properties in the Gander Goldbelt
Winnipeg, Manitoba--(Newsfile Corp. - November 30, 2020) - Gossan Resources Limited (TSXV: GSS) (FSE: GSR) (Xetra: GSR) has expanded its Gander Gold Property in Gander NL by acquiring an additional license extending the Property to the south, out over Gander Lake. The new 1900-hectare license provides a contiguous extension of the geological and structural zones of interest along the Gander River Complex (formerly the GRUB Line). It encompasses a number of assumed faults that trend southward off the shoreline into Gander Lake from the existing properties held by Gossan and New Found Gold Corp.
Two additional properties were acquired north of the Gander Gold Property, also along the Gander River Complex. The 975-hectare Weir Pond Property is located 25 km north of Gander, southwest of Weir Pond. The 1,050-hectare Island Pond Property is located 48 km north of Gander, southwest of Island Pond. Both properties are situated within the structural corridor of interest to Gossan and are accessible off of Route 330 on Forest Resource roads, logging and other trails.
The geological setting of the land acquisitions is similar to the Gander Gold Property. The properties straddle a major geological contact between the Dunnage and Gander Zones within the Appalachian orogeny where crustal thickening occurred. Gold in the district is believed to be caused by deformation and plutonism associated with the orogenic events. (See NR-20-05 dated September 1, 2020)
The Company has received an initial exploration permit for the Gander Gold Property and is proceeding with a field program including: prospecting, orientation geochemical surveys of both soils and vegetation, and high-resolution drone magnetic geophysical surveys.
Douglas Reeson, President of Gossan stated, "We have expanded our new gold initiative with additional prospective gold properties in Newfoundland located near the recent high-grade gold discovery by New Found Gold and are encouraged by the commencement of our exploration programs."
Management cautions that mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties in proximity to the company's properties is not necessarily indicative to the presence of mineralization that may be hosted on the company's property.
