Granite Creek Announces Program Results on Niaouleni Gold Concession

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 9, 2015) - Granite Creek Gold Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GCX) (the "Company") wishes to announce the receipt of results from its previously announced check sampling program on the Niaouleni concession, located in western Mali (see press release dated March 31, 2015). A metallic screen procedure on a 1000 gram sample split was chosen to see if the suspected nugget effect in the gold assaying could be countered. Core boxes, containing core from drilling programs conducted by previous operators, were located and selectively re-sampled. All remaining material, including fines, was sampled in order to counter the effect of losing fine gold sinking to the bottom of the box and, therefore, not being assayed.

The sampling confirmed intermediate grades as reported by previous operators and showed a slight statistical variance when averaged across a drill intercept. The nugget nature of the high grade gold assaying was confirmed, which is evident when looking at individual higher grade intercept-samples, which were significantly reduced. In contrast, most of the low values reported in the old reports show significantly higher gold numbers due to the fine gold remainder in the boxes. According to the opposite effects of nuggets and fines, no significant increase of the average grade was noted. See chart below:

Material being processed by orpailleurs (local miners using hand tools) was also sampled with 1 sample of fresh material assaying 2.97 g/t Au, and two samples of reject material assaying 0.1 g/t Au and 0.13 g/t Au, respectively.

Granite Creek continues to review data on the project including information surrounding geochemical anomalies identified by previous operators that have not yet been drill tested.

The Company is currently exploring opportunities outside the mineral exploration sector including, but not limited to, the bio tech and green tech sectors.
