Guyana Goldfields extends high grade gold zones at Sulphur Rose

TORONTO -Guyana Goldfields Inc. (TSX:GUY) (“GUY” or the “Company”) is has announced more significant drill results at Sulphur Rose (property “A”), a new discovery at its Aranka group of properties. The Aranka group of properties are comprised of a contiguous 307,000 acre land package approximately thirty (30) kilometres northeast of the Company’s flagship Aurora property, presently the subject of a definitive feasibility study.

Assay results have been received from an additional seven (7) diamond drill holes from a total of thirty eight (38) holes aggregating 11,535 meters drilled to date. The current drill program is targeting the mineralization both laterally and at deeper levels. Complete results are outlined in the table below.

Drill hole SDH-20, located at the northwestern section of the mineralization yielded a broad high grade interval of 37.5 metres grading 3.55 g/t Au including 8 metres at 10.43 g/t Au. Another zone down the hole returned 21 metres grading 2.27 g/t Au.

Drill hole SDH-21, drilled on the same section as SDH-20 returned a wide high grade zone of 27.5 metres at 3.15 g/t Au including a better grade interval of 14 metres at 5.84 g/t Au.

Drill holes SDH-23 and SDH-24 both tested the mineralization at depth and returned wide intervals of 45 metres grading 0.79 g/t Au and 23 metres grading 1.15 g/t Au, respectively.

Drill hole SDH-22, the northwestern-most drill hole that traced the lateral extent of the mineralization, returned 17.5 metres at 0.74 g/t Au.

The latest drill results continued to confirm the highly distinct northwest trending sigmoidal shaped zone of significant gold mineralization. It has effectively extended the lateral continuity of the mineralization to over 500 metres strike length and close to 100 metres at its widest. It also has identified two higher-grade zones to the southeast and northwest. Mineralization has been extended to approximately 200 meters below surface and still open at depth.

Exploration activities will continue to trace the lateral and vertical extent of the mineralization with two drill rigs currently conducting drilling at the property. A recent re-interpretation of the geophysics identified three more potassium anomaly targets identical to the Sulphur Rose discovery within 3 kilometres of the current drilling.

Reconnaissance work farther north in the concession area at the Wynamu prospect continued to follow-up anomalous gold in stream sediments and coincident geophysical potassium anomalies. Several targets for a more detailed soil grid have been identified.

Patrick Sheridan CEO commented, “These new assay results reinforce our belief that the Sulphur Rose discovery has the potential to become another significant gold deposit in the Cuyuni greenstone belt in terms of tonnage and grade. Continuing exploration at the Sulphur Rose and vicinity has a good chance that we might have another exploration back drop similar to the “Golden Square Mile” of our Aurora Project”.

Analytical testing and reporting of assays was conducted by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. (“AcmeLabs”) based in Georgetown, Guyana and Santiago, Chile.
