HighGold (TSX-V:HIGH, OTCQX:HGGOF) is a well-financed exploration company – C$12 million cash – focused on high-grade gold projects located in Alaska and Timmins. HighGold’s flagship asset, the Johnson Tract Gold (Zn-Cu) Project, located in accessible south-central coastal Alaska, USA, has an Indicated Resource of 3.49 million tonnes (“Mt”) grading 9.39 g/t gold equivalent (“AuEq”) for 1,053,000 oz AuEq and an Inferred Resource of  0.71 Mt grading 4.76 g/t AuEq for 108,000 oz AuEq. Johnson Tract also has a 12-kilometer mineralized district of quality gold prospects. The Difficult Creek Discovery, made in 2021, offered up 578g/t Au over 6.4 meters – 4 kilometers distant from the main JT deposit.  Approximately 10,000 meters of drilling was done during 2022 focused on expanding the JT resource, following on on the Difficult Creek discovery and testing new targets in the mineralized district. 


Details on the Difficult Creek discovery:

• 577.9 g/t Au, 2,023 g/t Ag, 2.15% Zn, 0.30% Cu over 6.40m, including

982.7 g/t Au, 3,436 g/t Ag, 2.80% Zn, 0.44% Cu over 3.76m, including

2,860 g/t Au, 9,990 g/t Ag, 5.04% Zn, 0.88% Cu over 1.26m


The Company also controls a portfolio of quality active gold projects in the Timmins gold camp – including Munro-Croesus, one of the highest-grade historic gold producers in Ontario where mineralization occurred in a unique geologic environment producing gold samples of more than 10,000 ounces per tonne. HighGold has been consolidating the largely privately held land packages in the immediate area, most of which have seen little to no modern exploration, with the objective of exploring for more of the same environmental conditions that deposited the very high-grade gold at the historic mine. Results from 2022 Munro-Croesus drilling include:


•  13.40 g/t Au over 0.5m within a broader 4.80m interval grading 3.60 g/t Au from an intersection of the Croesus Vein 100m northeast of the Croesus Mine 

•  14.00 g/t Au over 0.6m within a broader 2.60m interval grading 3.42 g/t Au from a new vein zone intersected 370m northwest of the Croesus Mine
