Golden Goliath Resources Ltd.: Work on Nopalera Commences

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - Golden Goliath Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GNG)(PINK SHEETS:GGTH-F) For immediate release.

Golden Goliath is pleased to announce that it has commenced fieldwork on its 100% owned Nopalera property. The property has been long held within the Company's Uruachic Camp in the Sierra Madre Mountains of northwestern Mexico. Nopalera was defined several years ago as a porphyry target, which is unique to this part of the world as most mineralization is vein hosted. That is, until the recent discovery of Orisyvo by Fresnillo PLC on the property adjacent to Nopalera (To see a map of the Golden Goliath claims, go to the following link: Orisyvo has been described as a porphyry deposit.

Fresnillo PLC is the world's largest primary silver producer, and as such, provides limited disclosure of its advanced exploration programs. However, what they have disclosed about Orisyvo is: 

  • Indicated & inferred resources of 2.7M ounces of gold in oxides and 6.51M ounces of gold in sulphides
  • Disseminated gold values delineated over a 1 x 1.5 km area, and through 400 metres vertical extent, with grades ranging 0.5 to 2.5 g/t gold
  • Permitting is in process for an exploration adit to initiate underground exploration in 1H 2011
  • Pilot plant to be established in 2011
  • Additional resources identified with an updated scoping study expected early in 2012

The Fresnillo claims that host the Orisyvo deposit border Golden Goliath's Nopalera claim on its eastern edge. The proximity of Orisyvo and a similar geological model has management very excited on the potential of Nopalera (To see a map of the Nopalera Exploration in Progress, go to the following link:

The significance of Fresnillo's discovery and the potential for the district has not gone unnoticed by some of the majors. Peñoles, the second largest Mexican mining company behind Fresnillo, has now staked claims that completely surround our Uruachic Camp. Agnico-Eagle Mines has optioned a portion of our Uruachic Camp and is one of our major shareholders. This makes the area an important new emerging gold district with world class gold deposit potential, three major mining companies actively involved and Golden Goliath holding a substantial land position in the heart of it.
