(businesspress24) -
July 23, 2019 - Granada Gold Mine Inc. (TSXV: GGM) (the Company or Granada) Granada Gold Mines Ltd., through its expanded Phase I metallurgical test program, has the potential to greatly increase the potential resource at the Granada Property on the Cadillac trend by recovering the low-grade, halo-effect gold mineralization around the main mineralized veins based on preliminary metallurgical testwork done this spring (see April 25, 2019, news release).

Low-grade waste pile mineralized material has been sent to SGS Lakefield, Ontario to begin process optimization to increase the gold grade with the focus also on cobalt and nickel recovery.

- A 30,000 tonne bulk sample at 19 mm has been screened out of the waste pile for test purposes.
- The expanded LONGBARS zone, extending 2 kilometers east-west over a potential 5.5-kilometer mineralized structure along the Cadillac trend, features halo-effect gold mineralization around the main mineralized veins.
- This mineralized material is amenable to conventional gravity concentration and has, in the past, been mined and rejected to the waste pile.
- Preliminary testwork using conventional gravity concentration has produced a high-grade gold concentrate with increased base metals grades.

Frank J. Basa, P.Eng., Granada Golds president, comment: The test results to date increasingly indicate that there is potential to upgrade this low-grade gold within the halo-effect mineralized material.
