Gainey Provides Drilling Update

January 09, 2017 – Vancouver, British Columbia - Gainey Capital Corp. (TSXV: GNC) (OTC: GNYPF) (“Gainey” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company’s Phase 1 drill program is progressing and has been expanded at the El Colomo Gold-Silver project (“El Colomo”) located in the Sierra Madre Occidental Trend in Western Mexico. The drilling is focused on the La Higuerita mineralized zone (“La Higuerita”) and the La Nueva Victoria Mineralized zone (‘La Nueva Victoria’) which are two of the Company’s 21 known mineralized zones within El Colomo.

As reported in the Company’s news release on October 13, 2016, the drilling of three additional drill holes targeting La Higuerita was announced, two of which have been completed, sampled and shipped to ALS Chemex Labs in Vancouver, BC for analysis and the remaining drill hole is currently in progress.

The La Higuerita mineralized zone is located approximately 250 meters northeast of La Nueva Victoria, from which Gainey drill tested and released  assay results on September 29, 2016 and October 04, 2016 (see Table 1 below).

Further, due to the positive results received at La Nueva Victoria in Q4 2016 (see Table 1 below), the Company is planning to drill an additional four holes, along the La Nueva Victoria trend, 140 meters to the northeast of holes DHEC160001-3, and in between the La Nueva Victoria and La Higuerita zones.
