VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/13 -- Gold Canyon Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: GCU)(PINKSHEETS: GDCRF) ("Gold Canyon" or "the Company") is pleased to announce it has reached agreement on a Negotiation Protocol (the "Agreement") with local First Nations in relation to its 100% controlled Springpole Gold Project located approximate 110 kilometers northeast of Red Lake, Ontario. Each of the Cat Lake First Nation, the Lac Seul First Nation, and the Slate Falls Nation (the "Protocol Nations") are party to the Agreement that sets a constructive framework to negotiate an Exploration Accommodation Agreement that will support Gold Canyon's activities as it advances this important gold project.
Gold Canyon values its relationship with the Protocol Nations and is committed to maintaining a collaborative and mutually beneficial working relationship in support of Gold Canyon's exploration within the asserted traditional territories of these First Nations. The Springpole Gold Project provides a strong opportunity for the Protocol Nations' economic and community development. This Agreement sets the foundation for the respectful relationship that will enable Gold Canyon and the Protocol Nations to move forward with further discussion of the Project, maximize opportunities, and openly address any concerns that may arise. It will assist greatly in further timely discussions between Gold Canyon and the Protocol Nations as the Project moves forward.
Springpole is an alkaline intrusion hosting a gold system that represents a potentially new style of Canadian Archean Shield gold deposit. The Portage Zone is hosted by a trachytic porphyry intrusion displaying polyphase autolithic breccias that host gold mineralization. Other zones, including the East Extension and Main, consist of high-grade veins and pods hosted in diatreme breccias composed of intrusive and country rock fragments. These breccias surround the northwest and northern margins of the Portage Zone. The known mineralized zones underlie a total known area of about 4 square kilometers representing only about 15 percent of the greater alkaline intrusive complex which remains yet to be explored.
