GoGold Resources Inc. is a Canadian-based, mineral exploration company with properties in Mexico and Canada. The company's flagship property, San Diego, is in Durango, Mexico and is currently the focus of GoGold's exploration efforts. The property is a massive 70,987 hectares located in the richest epithermal gold and silver belt in the world. The region is presently host to numerous operating gold and silver mines and is open to further mining development with a supportive local populace, cooperative government, and good infrastructure.  The Company is listed on the Toronto Venture Exchange under (GGD) and OTC under (GLGDF).

Projects

San Diego

The San Diego area contains an epithermal gold/silver system that extends for more than 35 kilometres. Widespread gold in quartz veins, breccias and stockworks occurs over the length of the system. Gold and silver are exposed at the surface and the hillsides are punctuated with dozens of small hand dug mines. Although the district has been mined on a small scale since the 1700s there has been very little modern exploration.

On August 15th, 2011, the company announced that drilling had officially commenced at the San Diego Project. (See Press Release)

The property was assembled over a two-year period by working with local officials, geologists, contractors and inhabitants to negotiate and consolidate more than 16 individually attractive claims. Exploration work during that time included recognisance sampling which identified gold and silver in veins and in large disseminated alteration zones along the entire strike of the system.

The property contains multiple geological exploration targets, each representing potentially impressive bulk mineable and/or underground operations. To date, over 2000 gold and silver samples have been gathered from just a few exploration targets within the property. Numerous unexplored targets still remain, providing excellent potential for long-term exploration upside.

This well-established mining region features supportive local inhabitants, cooperative local and district governments, and existing infrastructure including local workforce, power to property, road access, accommodations and water. In addition, a new highway is scheduled to be completed within 2 years.

GoGold President and CEO, Terry Coughlan has stated, “The area is reminiscent of when I first visited Ocampo in 1999 where we developed one of the largest gold mines in Mexico which now employs over 3,000 people. GoGold today is well positioned financially and we look forward to advancing our exploration activities in the district.”

Brechia Hill

Located within the company's San Diego Project, Breccia Hill was chosen as the starting point for GoGold's exploration initiatives at San Diego. Although the company has identified many other mineralized targets within the 70,987 hectare property; Breccia Hill was selected first due to the success of initial gold and silver assays along with existing infrastructure including road access.

The Breccia Hill "Open Pit Target" contains multiple geological exploration targets each representing potential bulk mineable and / or underground targets. Surface and underground samples have been gathered within the area and numerous unexplored targets still remain providing excellent potential for long-term exploration upside within this area alone.

The Company has taken a total of 918 samples within the open pit target area and the arithmetic average assay of all 918 samples is 1.23 g/t gold and 13.15 g/t silver, for a gold equivalent of 1.52 g/t at a 46:1 silver to gold ratio.

Initial drill results from Breccia Hill intercepted gold and silver mineralization over significant widths in a breccia that when drilled was discovered to be in a larger polymetalic stockwork zone. The polymetalic zone intercepted significant mineralization (between 20m and 447.9m of intercept length) of low grade copper and molybdenum within a large stockwork zone in the footwall of Breccia Hill. Given the discovery of the stockwork footwall zones and the wide zones of copper/molybdenum the company has concluded that the mineralized system at Breccia Hill is much larger than first thought. The company's geological team has interpreted the style of mineralization to potentially be part of a porphyry system that may be below or adjacent to Breccia Hill. The zone is open along strike and to depth below the valley floor. Company geologists are now mapping and sampling north and south of this target with the intention of expanding the mineralized footprint in the area.

GoGold Drills 95 Metres True Width of 1.48 g/t Gold Equivalent (AuEq) Within a Larger Polymetallic Zone at its Breccia Hill Open Pit Target in Mexico

Chispa De Oro

The company expects to commence a two to three thousand metre drill program on the Chispa De Oro target as soon as drill sites are completed. The geological team believes that the Chispa De Oro alteration zone is a high sulphidation system based on rock mineralogy and field observations. With significant results of gold and silver on surface, Chispa De Oro has become a high priority target for drilling.

Within the Chispa De Oro project, exploration is being focused on a network of high sulphidation epithermal breccia zones within an extended large 2.5Km x 750m oxidized alteration zone containing widespread disseminated gold and silver. Chispa shares many similarities with other high sulphidation epithermal gold and silver deposits around the world including: Yanachocha and Tukary in Peru, some of the largest gold deposits in the world.
