GOLDEN INDEPENDENCE ANNOUNCES M&I RESOURCE OF 506,052 GOLD OUNCES AND INFERRED RESOURCE OF 905,146 GOLD OUNCES AT THE INDEPENDENCE PROJECT

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 20, 2021) – Golden Independence Mining Corp. (CSE: IGLD) (OTCQB: GIDMF) (FSE: 6NN) (“Golden Independence”) or (the “Company”) is pleased to announce an updated National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) compliant Mineral Resource Estimate (“MRE”) for the Company’s flagship Independence project located adjacent to Nevada Gold Mines’ Phoenix-Fortitude mining operations in the Battle Mountain-Cortez trend of Nevada.

The MRE incorporates over 132,000 feet of RC and core drilling in 246 holes, outlining both a near surface and an underground resource and now incorporates a lower cut-off grade for oxide material and higher cut-off grades for transitional and sulphide material based on recent metallurgical and economic analysis for the near surface resource. The resource represents the total modelled mineralization as interpolated by the exploration drilling to date. No constraining economics have been applied to the resource. The Company is actively advancing the near surface portion of the MRE towards a Preliminary Economic Assessment anticipated by year-end 2021. Highlights of the MRE include:

  • Near Surface Resource: Measured & Indicated Total Resource of 506,052 ounces of gold and 7.8 million ounces of silver plus an Inferred Total Resource of 108,946 ounces of gold and 1 million ounces of silver.

  • Underground Resource: Inferred Resource of 796,200 ounces of gold.

“This updated resource incorporates ongoing work associated with the PEA and an additional 12 RC holes drilled after the May 2021 initial resource was released,” commented Christos Doulis, CEO. “The near surface component of this updated MRE provides the foundation for a Preliminary Economic Assessment anticipated imminently. With the recent formation of a formal Joint Venture with our partner AGEI we look forward to continuing to advance the Independence project towards a production decision,” he concluded.

The resource estimate was completed by James Ashton of Dyer Engineering with an effective date of November 15, 2021 and complies with National Instrument 43-101 and guidelines developed in 2014 by the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (“CIM”). In accordance with NI 43-101, a Technical Report will be filed on SEDAR within 45-days of this release.

Notes to Mineral Resource Estimate:

  1. Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of Mineral Resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing, changes in global gold markets or other relevant issues. The CIM definitions (2014) were followed for classification of Mineral Resources. The quantity and grade of reported inferred Mineral Resources in this estimation are uncertain in nature ‎and there has been insufficient exploration to define these inferred Mineral Resources as ‎indicated Mineral Resource. It is probable that further exploration drilling will result in upgrading them to the ‎indicated or measured Mineral Resource category.
  2. The Mineral Resource Estimate incorporates over 132,000 feet of reverse circulation and core drilling in 246 holes, and outlines both a near surface and a deep skarn resource. The near surface mineralization is primarily based on the reverse circulation drilling, while the deep skarn mineralization is based entirely on core drilling. 
  3. The resource was prepared by James Ashton, P.E., an independent QP, with an effective date of November 15, 2021. 
  4. The mineral resources are unconstrained and presented at variable undiluted gold cutoff grades, which represent mineralization that is potentially available for open-pit mining and heap-leach processing. 
  5. The Deep Skarn mineralization resources were quantified based on deep tabular solids representing potentially underground mineable lenses.
  6. Gold equivalent values are based on silver to gold ratio of 70:1.
  7. Rounding may result in apparent discrepancies between tonnes, grade, and contained metal content.
