Gowest Gold Begins Underground Drive

Provides Update on the Bradshaw Development

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 25, 2017) - Gowest Gold Ltd. ("Gowest" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GWA) is pleased to provide an update on its progress on the Company's Advanced Exploration - Bulk Sample program at its wholly-owned Bradshaw Gold Deposit ("Bradshaw").


  • Completed first blast and now developing main ramp towards Bradshaw Deposit
  • Completing upper level and initial stope definition drill program
  • Initiating final ore-sorting refinement with Steinert US
  • Advancing mill agreements with Northern Sun to own/operate the Redstone Mill

Greg Romain, Gowest's President said, "Very few junior exploration companies ever transition into a developer. However, through the dedication of our team, business partners, shareholders, First Nation Communities and the City of Timmins, Gowest is on its way to achieving our goal of becoming the next new gold mine in the Timmins Camp. We will continue to provide all of our stakeholders with timely updates as we move forward." 


Following approximately three months of extensive surface preparation work, Gowest started underground development at the Bradshaw mine site on May 11, 2017, when the first blast was executed at the portal, which is located at the east side of the outcrop. As of yesterday, the Company has already driven the first 40 metres of the decline to the south in anticipation of reaching the first mineralized zone to begin the 30,000 tonne bulk sample. Crews have been working on the decline in two shifts since May 17. 

The run of mine (ROM) ore will first be crushed and sent through a Dual Energy X-ray Transmission (DEXRT) ore sorting unit supplied by Steinert US, which is to be used to sharply reduce handling costs and increase gold grades of ore sent for processing. 

Ongoing definition drilling continues to identify promising zones above areas previously defined in the Pre-Feasibility Study*.

As previously announced, the Company is continuing to advance discussions towards finalizing its non-binding letter of intent with Northern Sun Mining Corp. ("Northern Sun") relating to the creation of a 50/50 joint venture corporation that will own and operate the Redstone Mill. It is now anticipated that definitive documentation in respect of the transaction will be completed prior to closing the transaction in early July, well in advance of Gowest's need to begin processing the bulk sample material.

A recently completed brief video showing progress at the site is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQgPuwsz0y0 and at the Company's website: www.Gowestgold.com
