VANCOUVER, BC / December 17, 2021 / Gold Springs Resource Corp. (TSX:GRC)(OTCQB:GRCAF) (the "Company" or "GRC") is pleased to announce assay results that confirm the existence of a gold system at the "White Point" target, located on the Nevada portion of its USA flagship Gold Springs project.
Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration, stated: "These results confirm a significant gold system at "White Point".
Our 2021 drilling program has produced 3 significant discoveries:
The Gold Springs project is developing as we hoped with 4 resources at "North Jumbo", "South Jumbo", "Grey Eagle", and "Thor" open to expansion and with new gold discoveries on 3 additional targets, where we believe we can add new resources in 2022.
We are still waiting for results in the coming weeks on 15 additional holes at "Tremor" and on 7 holes at "Charlie Ross"."
(For additional information about the "Charlie Ross" and "Tremor" drill results, please refer to GRC's press releases dated October 19 and December 3, 2021)
2021 ongoing drilling program:
The Company's 2021 drilling program has now ended as the first major snowstorm has closed access to the site. The Company will now focus on completing the detailed logging of the 2021 drill holes, updating current models and developing new ones for the new discovery areas.
Plans for 2022 include updating the resource in the first quarter and restarting the drilling program as soon as weather conditions permit, which is expected to be in late March 2022.
White Point Target
"White Point" is located 400 meters west of the "Grey Eagle" resource area and is characterized by gold-bearing sheeted veins and breccias. The holes completed at "White Point" this year are expanding the knowledge of the controls for the gold mineralization in this structurally complex area. "White Point" is situated in an area along a caldera margin that has been impacted by radial and circular fracture systems associated with the caldera. These drill results, which trace gold mineralization for over 200 meters at "White Point", will assist in the development of a model to aid in the planning of future drill programs.
Drilling highlights include
* Gold Equivalent calculated at $1,800/oz gold and $25/oz silver
** True thickness is estimated to be 70-90% of total thickness

The Qualified Person on the Gold Springs property is Randall Moore, Executive Vice President of Exploration of GRC, and he has reviewed and approved the content of this press release. The Qualified Person verified the data disclosed herein for its geological reasonableness, checked all the inputs and verified the analytical data through an analysis of the blanks and standards submitted with the drill-chip samples.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control
Approximately 7 kg of RC chips were sent to the laboratory for each 1.52 meters drill interval. Standards and blanks are submitted into the sample stream at the rate of 15% for QA/QC purposes. In addition, the laboratory also includes duplicates of samples, standards and blanks. The results of these check assays are reviewed prior to the release of data. All RC sample assays are also reviewed for their geological context and checked against the drill logs.
Assays were performed in Sparks, Nevada by ALS Geochemistry, ISO 9001:2000 Certified and independent laboratories. Gold was analyzed by fire assay of a 30-gram sample with an AAS finish with samples assaying greater than 5 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.
The Company also announces that Robert van Doorn has tendered his resignation as a director of the Company. The Company thanks Robert for his contributions and wishes him well on his future endeavours.
