April 23, 2018, Vancouver, BC – Goldplay Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: GPLY – the “Company” or “Goldplay”), is pleased to announce the receipt of the surface drill permit for the Company’s El Habal Gold Project in Rosario, Sinaloa, Mexico (“El Habal”). With this permit in hand together with recently approved surface agreements with all landowners, the Company is preparing a Phase I drill program to commence in May 2018. The Company plans to complete an initial 4,000 m HQ core drill program based on successful results from its recent ground geophysical survey (“CSMAT”) and the mapping and sampling of historical shallow underground workings. The initial drill program will focus initially on a 600 m long mineralized corridor, open along strike and down dip within a highly prospective 6 km long mineralized corridor.
The drill targets identified in the 2017 surface exploration program and CSMAT are located close to small historical shallow underground workings known as Santos, La Reina, and Arenal. These targets have been defined by positive trench results, representing areas with presence of low resistivity anomalies identified by the CSMAT survey and with evidence of intense hydrothermal alteration-quartz stockwork.
