New Jersey Mining Company announced favorable assay results from two core holes; GC 18-178 and GC 19-179. Mr Rob Morgan, NJMC VP of Exploration, said “Incorporating our in-house drill into mine operations at the Golden Chest has proven its worth many times over. The favorable cost structure and operational flexibility of our drill crew is now commonplace within our company, however it's the continued positive results from drilling that increases our confidence in the Golden Chest."

The vein piercements along the Idaho Vein are summarized below:

Core hole GC 18-178 was completed to a depth of 153.8 meters; and GC 19-179 was completed to a depth of 152.9 meters. All reported intervals are recorded in true thickness.
• GC 18-178 returned 5.1 g/t gold over 3.1 meters from a depth of 128.1 meters.
• GC 19-179 returned 11.2 g/t gold over 1.1 meters from a depth of 130.5 meters

Based on the favorable assay results in both holes, mining of the 857 level has been extended to the north more than 40 meters beyond previous mining and indicating a possible coalescence of the Skookum and Golden Chest shoots.

New Jersey's drill rig was moved north from its successful program in the Paymaster area, to nearby Skookum area to evaluate previously un-tested areas. The Skookum drill program successfully extended the strike length of mineralization on the 857 level indicating the possible connection of the Golden Chest and Skookum shoots at this elevation which has positive implications for resource expansion.
