(businesspress24) - VANCOUVER, BC, September 23rd, 2020 - Gold Plus Mining Inc. (Gold Plus or the Company) (CSE :GPMI) is pleased to announce that it has engaged Longford Exploration Services Ltd. to assist the company in designing a work program for its 100% owned Lawyers East and West claim blocks that are contiguous to Benchmark Metals (BNCH - TSX.V) Lawyers Gold and Silver project in BCs famous Golden Horseshoe region, that recently reported drilling intercepts of 2,360 g/t silver and 11.30 g/t gold over a 1 meter interval as well as 1.44 g/t gold equivalent over 102 meters (see press release dated February 11th and Jan 31st, 2020 respectively).

The initial work program will be based on a compilation of historic work from the Lawyer East and West claims and nearby projects, that is now underway. This data compilation will be followed up with a field program designed to complement historic work and recent discoveries in the area. The field program will be focused on sampling and geologic mapping of highly prospective and mineralized areas and may include geochemical surveying. Samples will be taken from mineralized areas and analyzed for precious metals content shortly after field work is completed.

Neighboring Benchmark Metals announced on August 27th 2020, the discovery of the new Marmot Zone that contains mineralized structures broad zones of alteration, veining, and sulphide mineralization, returning samples of up to 61.3 g/t gold and 3,890 g/t silver. The discovery of the Marmot zone is trending South East from Benchmarks initial Cliff Creek zone discovery and towards Gold Pluss Lawyers East claim block that is contiguous to the South East of Benchmarks Lawyers property. The above information provides an indication of the exploration potential of the Lawyers East claim block and may not be representative of expected results.

President and CEO Spencer Smyl states, With Gold prices recently exceeding $2,000 per Oz and multiple recent gold discoveries on neighboring claims, we are excited about the potential of our highly prospective Laywers East and West claims. Gold Plus now has three projects in some of the most prolific mining camps in Canada: the Golden Triangle in British Columbia, the Red Lake mining camp in north west Ontario and the Abitibi region of Quebec. We plan to conduct work programs on all three properties in order to obtain samples and define prioritry targets for upcoming drill programs.

About the Lawyers East & West Claims

Gold Pluss Lawyers East and West mineral claims is cover approximately 8,650 acres and are on trend with several mines found in the region, located at the south-eastern side of Benchmarks Lawyers property, below TDG Gold Corps Baker Mine and Shasta Mine and in line with the Kemess Mine further South East that hosts 2.7M oz of gold equivalent. Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Properties.

Neighboring Benchmark Metals recently announced an increase from 50,000m to 100,000m of drilling for 2020 and for 2021, a 200,000m drill program. Benchmark hopes to establish a five-million-plus-ounce resource by the first half of 2021, with preliminary economic studies to follow later in the year (see press release dated August 24th, 2020).

Gold Plus Minings property hosts highly prospective rocks in the northeastern region of the prolific metal-endowed Stikine Terrane, British Columbia, Canada. According to Logan and Mihalynuk (2014), magmatic events in Stikine during the Late Triassic and Early Jurassic were the driving source for the development of mineralizing porphyry and epithermal systems. The same magmatic and mineralizing events are recognized on both the east and west sides of the Bower Basin forming an arch of gold and polymetallic mineralization. This arch is depicted herein as the ''Golden Horseshoe'' which includes the Golden Triangle.
