Golden Ridge Resources Ltd has provided an update on its phase II exploration and diamond drilling program focused on its Ball Creek project, located in BC's Golden Triangle. The first hole testing the southwest extension of the Main Zone has been completed to a depth of 393.0 meters intersecting a feldspar-hornblende +/- biotite porphyry with varying levels of potassic alteration and copper mineralization. This newly completed hole extends the strike length of known mineralization at the main zone to 1.3 kilometers.


Completed Main Zone step-out diamond drill hole BC-MZ-19-01 to 393.0 meters depth. This hole tested the southwest extension of the Main Zone target on Ball Creek.
Extended the mineralization and alteration encountered in previous drilling undertaken at the Main Zone.
Added 60 meters of strike to the known mineralization of the Main Zone

Drilling currently underway on hole BC-GZ-19-01 in the previously untested Goat Zone, which lies 1.7 kilometers southeast of BC-MZ-19-01. The Goat Zone is interpreted as the southern and deeper portion of the porphyry system at the Main Zone, with minor fault offsets along strike

Property-wide reconnaissance geochemical program has collected over 4000 samples to date, with results to be compiled and presented in the coming months.

Property wide prospecting and mapping have identified multiple new Cu-Au porphyry, skarn and VMS occurrences. Selected targets are slated for drill testing in 2020.
