VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The holiday season is a special time of year. At Gold Bull Resources Corp. (TSX-V: GBRC) (“Gold Bull” or the “Company”) we use this time as an opportunity to reflect on the year that was, and, to design a road map aimed at achieving our goals in 2022.
This time last year, we had concluded the 100% acquisition of the Sandman Gold Project (“Sandman” or the “Project”) from Newmont, located in Nevada. Since then, we increased the Sandman gold resource by 60%. Post the resource estimate increase, we have conducted significant additional work, including:
- Built a world class technical team of Nevada based geoscientists and developed relationships with local stakeholders
- Drilled 33 RC holes for total 5,804.9 m (19,045 ft), drilling hit both high grade and broad widths of gold mineralization, located outside the current resource
- Conducted numerous ground geophysical surveys, including a 3D IP survey at North Hill covering 0.9 square km (223 acres), a 2D IP survey at the new Midway target area, covering 14.3 km (8.9 miles) and CSAMT lines at North Hill, Windmill target and Abel Knoll covering 25.9 km (16.1 miles)
- Proven lag sampling is an effective geochemical tool to explore for deposits that may be hiding beneath the Sandman cover (predominantly unconsolidated sand)
- Collated a 3D geological model incorporating all previous data resulting in a new target model
Our team is gearing up for another drill program at Sandman that will commence in January 2022. The initial program will comprise of 4000m, targeting new discoveries based on the robust science that our team has collated.
Gold Bull’s 100% owned Big Balds Project, also located in Nevada is ‘drill ready’. The Company intends to drill test the Big Balds Project in 2022, targeting an undercover geophysical anomaly along strike of Bald Mountain.
The Company is fully funded for both drill programs.
While our team is focused on adding ounces at our existing 100% owned projects, I am continuing our M&A (merger and acquisition) discussions. We have a short list of assets that we are advancing to the next level of due diligence in the pursuit of value adding transactions. In short, if we can acquire existing ounces cheaper than we can explore for them – we believe that represents compelling value for our shareholders. The global markets remain buoyed up by COVID stimulus packages, and inflation appears set to rise which historically abodes well for gold.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported us this year: our communities and stakeholders, Board of Directors, accounts & admin team, advisors and consultants, supportive stockbrokers and I would like to acknowledge the dedication of our Nevada based technical team, comprising of: David Johnson, Regina Molloy, Will Strong, Amy Hannink, Robbie Anderson and technical advisor, John Wood. I am proud of the science that has been utilized to produce our new and exciting drill targets that we look forward to testing in Q1 2022. It is shaping up to be an exciting year for the Company.
Most of all, I thank you, our shareholders, for your continued support. On behalf of Gold Bull, we wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year.

In December 2020, Gold Bull purchased the Sandman Project from Newmont. Gold mineralization was first discovered at Sandman in 1987 by Kennecott and the project has been intermittently explored since then. There are four known pit constrained gold resources located within the Sandman Project, consisting of 21.8Mt @ 0.7g/t gold for 494,000 ounces of gold; comprising of an Indicated Resource of 18,550kt @ 0.73g/t gold for 433kozs of gold plus an Inferred Resource of 3,246kt @ 0.58g/t gold for 61kozs of gold. Several of the resources remain open in multiple directions and the bulk of the historical drilling has been conducted to a depth of less than 100m. Sandman is conveniently located circa 30 km northwest of the mining town of Winnemucca, Nevada.
