Railroad – opportunity for multi-million ounce gold discoveries on the Carlin Trend, Nevada

Gold Standard Ventures acquired substantially all of the Railroad District in 2009, and is now in the process of applying modern-day exploration techniques and models to discover new gold deposits in this target-rich District. Carlin-style deposits are in evidence through recent drilling conducted by GSV. Targets outside of the North Bullion Fault Zone (“NBFZ”) remain largely undrilled and many targets obscured by structural complexity and cover have yet to be drilled. Gold Standard has identified several new target opportunities and is in the process of assessing these targets with both reverse circulation and core drilling. The North Bullion discovery is hosted within the NBFZ which is part of the greater Bullion Fault Corridor – approximately 10km (6 mi) of linear target area within the Railroad exploration window. The focus of the company is further delineation within the North Bullion as well as continued exploration within the highly prospective NBFZ where, based on extensive geophysics and geochemistry, the company believes the potential for multiple undiscovered gold deposits still remain. In addition to the work being carried out within the NBFZ, the entire Bullion Fault Corridor is now being assessed for further localized target areas – as the expectations within NBFZ grow southwards along the corridor.

Highlights

  • Railroad is located in the southern portion of the Carlin Trend, 29mi south of Elko, adjacent to Newmont’s Rain and Emigrant mines.
  • Close to 100% owned and controlled District Scale land position, approximately 25,200 net mineral acres (~102 sq km). Railroad encompasses the entire “Fourth Window” on the Carlin Trend (See Maps and Sections for image). Lower Plate rocks and silicification is exposed at surface.
  • New Gold Discovery (Jan 2011) within the North/South trending Bullion Fault Zone Target (RR10 – 8, RR10 – 11, RR10 – 16). Ongoing success through 2012;
  • February 22nd 2012, drill hole 11-16 intersects high-grade within NBFZ. ~56.4m @ 4.26 g/t Au supporting the North Carlin comparatives
  • April 26th 2012, drill hole 12-1, 120m step out of 11-16, 164m @ 3.38 g/t Au
  • September 18th 2012, drill hole 12-10, 80m step out of 12-1, 124m @ 4.05 g/t Au
  • May 21st 2013, drill hole 13-08, a 75m step-out to the north of the North Bullion deposit, 73.5m @ 3.67 g/t Au
  • September 19th 2013, drill hole 13-11, 98.1m @ 3.26 g/t Au, the deposit remains open in multiple directions
  • October 2nd 2013, drill hole RRB 13-1, discovers significant oxide gold at new Bald Mountain target, 56.1m @ 1.47 g/t Au
  • Historical and recent high-grade drill intercepts in the Bullion District Target solidify expectations of multiple gold targets within the Railroad District

Geology Overview

Located at the southern end of the 100 million ounce Carlin Trend, Gold Standard Venture Corp.’s Railroad project is prime hunting ground for huge gold deposits.  With intercepts of 164 meters of 3.38 g/t gold and 124 meters of 4.05 g/t gold at the North Bullion target, it is evident that Gold Standard has already drilled into a large Carlin Trend gold system.  Further opportunity waits, as the ~ 26 square mile Railroad property remains largely unexplored with many undrilled targets showing evidence of Carlin-style gold.

Drilling

Railroad hosts the company’s new gold discovery at the North Bullion Fault Zone (“NBFZ”). Highlight intercepts from the North Bullion discovery include;

  • February 22nd 2012, drill hole 11-16 intersects high-grade within NBFZ. ~56.4m @ 4.26 g/t Au confirming the North Carlin comparatives
  • April 26th 2012, drill hole 12-1, 120m step out of 11-16, 164m @ 3.38 g/t Au
  • September 18th 2012, drill hole 12-10, 80m step out of 12-1, 124m @ 4.05 g/t Au
  • May 21st 2013, drill hole 13-08, a 75m step-out to the north of the North Bullion deposit, 73.5m @ 3.67 g/t Au
  • September 19th 2013, drill hole 13-11, located 70 meters west of previously drilled and reported hole RR13-08, 98.1m of 3.26g/t Au

The company is following up on these discovery intercepts with the goal to build a 43-101 compliant gold resource. The company continues to build the discovery area within North Bullion, as well as hunt additional depositions of gold. The North Bullion discovery is hosted within the NBFZ, which is part of the greater Bullion Fault Corridor – approximately 10km (6 mi) of linear target area within the Railroad exploration window. The focus of the company is further delineation within the North Bullion discovery as well as continued exploration within the highly prospective NBFZ where, based on extensive geophysics and geochemistry, the company believes the potential for multiple undiscovered gold deposits still remain. In addition to the work being carried out within the NBFZ, the entire Bullion Fault Corridor is now being assessed for further localized target areas – as the expectations within NBFZ grow southwards along the corridor.

Drill Hole Assay Tables

Note: The gold intervals reported in these assay tables are based on a 0.200 g Au/t cutoff. Weighted averaging has been used to calculate all reported intervals. The reported gold intervals may, or may not represent true thicknesses and, or widths. In general, the gold distribution within these large, complex breccia bodies tends to be irregular and will require additional drilling to establish true widths. Sampling Methodology, Chain of Custody, Quality Control and Quality Assurance: All sampling was conducted under the supervision of the Company’s project geologists and the chain of custody from the drill to the sample preparation facility was continuously monitored. Core was cut at the company’s facility in Elko and one half was sent to the lab for analysis and the other half retained in the original core box. A blank, quarter core duplicate or certified reference material was inserted approximately every tenth sample. The samples are delivered to ALS Minerals preparation facility in Elko. The samples are crushed and pulverized and sample pulps are shipped to ALS Minerals certified laboratory in Vancouver. Pulps are digested and analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish on a 30 gram split. All other elements are determined by ICP analysis. Data verification of the analytical results includes a statistical analysis of the duplicates, standards and blanks that must pass certain parameters for acceptance to ensure accurate and verifiable results.
