(TSXV: GNC) (OTC PINK: GNYPF) (“Gainey” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the continuation of the Company’s Phase 1 drilling program of an additional three holes at the ‘La Higuerita Gold-Silver mineralized zone’ (“La Higuerita”) located in the Sierra Madre Occidental Trend in Western Mexico.

La Higuerita is a part of Gainey’s 100% owned, 187 kmEl Colomo Gold-Silver project that hosts 21 highly prospective, gold-silver mineralized zones located within the Sierra Madre Golden Belt, Mexico.

Rafael Gallardo, Senior Geologist of Minera Cascabel S.A. de C.V., who is leading the drill program, commented, “The target of ‘La Higuerita mineralized zone’ host the same characteristics of mineralization and alteration as was encountered at the La Nueva Victoria target and all three zones are part of the Golden Corridor. These two targets have strong potential to find veins of high grade values hosted in felsic dykes and permeable lithic tuff. We are very excited to drill these two additional targets.”

David Coburn, CEO of Gainey, commented, “we are very encouraged by the success and drill results that have been encountered at the near-surface, La Nueva Victoria mineralized zone.  As we continue to move forward with our Phase 1 drilling program on La Higuerita, we are most encouraged by the fact that the Company’s El Colomo Project hosts a further 19, drill-ready, prospective gold-silver mineralized zones that Gainey plans on drill-testing in the near future.”

El Colomo Property

El Colomo is a highly prospective, 187 km2 property with district-scale gold-silver potential located within the ‘Golden Corridor’ in Sierra Madre, Mexico. High-grade and bulk tonnage targets have already been identified through prior exploration and there are strong indications of continuity between La Higuerita, La Nueva Victoria and El Arrayan (at least 2 km in strike length).

97% of this 18,766-hectare project has not been explored using modern concepts & technology. All 21 mineralized zones identified to date are located in the central portion of the property and within a 1.5 km radius of each other.
