Gowest Gold Development Update

TORONTO, May 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gowest Gold Ltd. (“Gowest” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: GWA) announced today that it has received the balance of the bridge loan agreement (the “Agreement”) entered into with Lush Land Investment Canada Inc. (“Lush Land”) for a loan facility of C$1.6 million (see News Release dated April 6, 2020).

The purpose of the Agreement is to enable Gowest to continue to move ahead with its Advanced Exploration Bulk Sample program at the Company’s 100% owned Bradshaw Gold Deposit (“Bradshaw”) while the Company continues to work towards a significantly larger financing. Gowest continues discussions with interested parties regarding one or more financings to raise sufficient funds to complete the bulk sample and take Bradshaw immediately into production.

Bradshaw Update

The Company has started the construction of the main vent raise and secondary egress at the mine site, which is required for the Company to transition into production without delay once the bulk sample is completed.

Meanwhile, the Company has plans in place to ensure that the first gold-bearing ore from the bulk sample and stored on surface at the site will be trucked to Northern Sun’s Redstone Mill (see Gowest release dated January 17, 2020) in time for processing, which is currently expected to begin in Q3 2020.

Health & Safety

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and to ensure the safety of all of the Company’s employees and contractors, all appropriate health and safety precautions continue to be instituted at Bradshaw as well as at the Company’s offices in Timmins and Toronto.

Options Grant

Gowest today granted 200,000 options to purchase common shares of the Company at an exercise price of $0.25 per share, expiring on May 5, 2025, to Mr. Parviz Farsangi, who joined the Company’s Board of Directors in October 2019 (see News Release dated October 11, 2019.)
