The company is very happy to announce its exploration team has completed the third trench, totaling 85 metres in length with an average width of approximately 1.5 metres located 150m to the east and south of the previous 2 trenches reported June 4, 2018.

This trench extends the total trenching program to 365 metres. Channel sampling with a rock saw in all 3 trenches have been completed by Technominex of Rouyn-Noranda under the supervision of GoldMinds Geoservices.

The distribution of trench samples was affected by the topography of the terrain and the presence of water. A total of 208 trench samples (including blank and standards) have been sent to ALS laboratory in Rouyn-Noranda for analysis by fire assay. Results will be disclosed once received, validated and interpreted.

Granada Gold Mine president and CEO Frank J. Basa P.Eng. said: “Again, we are very excited to expand the exploration of our extended LONG Bars zone on strike going east to test the remainder of the unexplored mineralized structures.

“These are highly prospective areas for production – our major focus.”
