GOLIATH REPORTS 15.75 G/T AU AND 1845 G/T AG (53.9 OZ/T) FROM 1 METRE CHIP SAMPLE AT DSM SKYHIGH PROPERTY
Goliath Resources Ltd. and Juggernaut Exploration Ltd. have released channel, chip and grab sample assay results of up to 15.75 grams per tonne gold and 1,845 grams per tonne silver (53.9 ounces per ton) over one metre at the Cloud 9 zone at the DSM Skyhigh property. The property is 100 per cent owned by the DSM syndicate, a private precious metals project generator in British Columbia, which holds a total of six properties to date. Goliath Resources owns a 10-per-cent interest in the DSM syndicate.
The Cloud 9 zone covers a large area, characterized by a series of gold-bearing, polymetallic quartz veins, which have been expanded to 1.75 kilometres by 0.4 km, and remains open. The zone is defined by samples containing gold and silver mineralization:
Multiple, relatively flat-lying quartz veins have returned assays up to 17.3 grams per tonne gold and 1,845 grams per tonne silver (53.9 ounces per ton).
The Skyhigh property covers seven historic epithermal and Cu-Mo (copper-molybdenum) porphyry mineral occurrences dating back to the 1990s.
- The project has rapid continuing glacial and snowpack recession providing for excellent additional discovery potential.
- Geological mapping, further prospecting, channel sampling and alteration studies are strongly recommended to outline the full geometry of the Cloud 9 zone in preparation for drilling.
The Skyhigh property was generated and staked by the DSM syndicate in 2017, following positive results from a brief reconnaissance exploration program. The property is located approximately 95 kilometres north of Campbell River, B.C., and occupies 816 hectares. A logging road from Loughborough Inlet, located 15 km to the west, provides access within 550 metres of the property. An airstrip and logging camp are located 30 kilometres east. A limited follow-up program in 2018 was carried out to systematically prospect the other unexplored regions of the claim block and expand on the 2017 mineralized zones. During the brief field program, a total of 29 samples (four channels, 10 chips and 15 grabs) were collected from the Cloud 9 zone with highlights including a one-metre chip that assayed 15.75 g/t Au and 1,845.00 g/t Ag. These results expanded the Cloud 9 zone from a strike length of 700 to 1,750 metres.

The regional geology is underlain by the Coast plutonic complex, which comprises granodiorite, diorite, gneiss, migmatite, amphibolite and schist (Roddick, 1977). The metamorphic rocks generally occur as small fault-bounded pendants. Feldspar porphyry dikes are locally abundant. Limited geological mapping has been conducted on the property, but mapped areas are generally underlain by rocks of the Coast plutonic complex. Mineralization is typically hosted in and/or adjacent to quartz veins. The quartz veins are classified into three types based on mineralogy, texture, type of occurrence and geochemical signature. These types are:
- Pyrite, chalcopyrite and molybdenite bearing;
- Pyrite bearing;
Pyrite-, chalcopyrite-, acanthite-(silver)-bearing veins.
Further exploration work is recommended based on the positive 2017 and 2018 results, with the expansion of gold-bearing polymetallic mineralization and the extensive snowpack and glacial recession on the property. This will provide larger discovery areas with strong gold and silver potential, which on the whole are underexplored. Suggested follow-up work would focus on expanding the known extent of mineralization at the Cloud 9 zone, which would include detailed mapping, geochemical sampling, drone imagery and channel sampling in preparation for drilling. The property is in an alpine environment with excellent bedrock exposure and is in close proximity to logging roads and tidewater.
Newstrike property update
This property was staked in 2017 based on encouraging results from a regional exploration program and received one day of follow-up exploration in 2018. A total of 20 samples were taken that assayed from below detection to 6.64 grams per tonne gold. The DSM syndicate is evaluating and interpreting the results to determine the next phase of exploration on the project.
Money property update
The property was similarly staked in 2017 and again received a single day of follow-up exploration in 2018. A total of 12 samples were taken on the property that assayed from below detection to 48.2 grams per tonne gold. Again, DSM syndicate is evaluating and interpreting the results to determine the next phase of exploration on the project.

All rock, channel and talus fine samples were crushed and pulverized at ALS Canada Ltd.'s lab in Vancouver, B.C. ALS is either certified to ISO 9001:2008 or accredited to ISO 17025:2005 in all of its locations. The resulting sample pulps were analyzed for gold by fire assay in Vancouver, B.C. The pulps were also assayed using multielement aqua regia digestion at ALS Canada's lab in Vancouver, B.C. The coarse reject portions of the rock samples as well as the pulps were shipped to the DSM syndicate's storage facility in Terrace, B.C. All samples were analyzed using ALS Canada's assay procedure ME-ICP41, a 1:1:1 aqua regia digestion with inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) or inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) finish for 35 elements, as well as the Au-AA24 lead collection fire assay fusion procedure with atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish. Any results greater than 100 parts per million for silver or 10,000 parts per million copper, lead and zinc were additionally assayed using ALS's OG46 method particular to each element. This method used an HNO3-HCl digestion followed by ICP-AES (or titrimetric and gravimetric analysis). Gold values of greater than 10 parts per million gold were assayed by the Au-GRA22 method, which includes a fire-assay fusion procedure with a gravimetric finish. Quality assurance/quality control samples, including blanks, standards and duplicate samples, were inserted regularly into the sample sequence.
The reader is cautioned that grab samples are spot samples, which are typically, but not exclusively, constrained to mineralization. Grab samples are selective in nature and collected to determine the presence or absence of mineralization and are not intended to be representative of the material sampled.
As per the closing of $707,000 announced Nov. 27, 2018, the company would like to clarify that it did pay finders' fees equal to 7 per cent of the gross proceeds from a portion of the financing in cash, and 7-per-cent finders' warrants equal to the number of units sold in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The proposed private placement and finders' fees are subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance. All shares issued pursuant to the offering and any shares issued pursuant to the exercise of warrants will be subject to a four-month hold period from the closing date. The company did pay $18,060 in finders' fees, and 90,300 in finders' warrants. These whole warrants have the same price and terms as the warrants attached to the units sold.
We seek Safe Harbor.
