Gold Line Announces Diamond Drilling Program At The Paubäcken Project

Vancouver, BC, Canada – October 4, 2022 – Gold Line Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: GLDL) (“Gold Line” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce commencement of a diamond drilling program at the 100% owned Paubäcken project located in the Gold Line Belt, northern Sweden.

The Company plans to complete up to 1500 metres of diamond drilling at the Aida target on the Paubacken Project using one drill rig. The program is designed to test over 800 metres of identified structural corridor coincident with anomalous top of bedrock gold and pathfinder anomalism. The program will step out on the 22.5 m @ 2.4 g/t Au intercept (see Dec. 27, 2021 news release) to understand size, geometry, and structural controls of mineralization along the Aida structural corridor.

Aida Target

The recently completed 5-hole 760 metre winter drilling program was encouraging and confirmed bedrock mineralization identified in the 2021 regional BoT/ToB drilling program. The campaign included 22.5 m of 2.4 g/t Au in PAU21003, located under approximately 20 m of glacial till cover. The 2022 diamond drilling program intends to step out on this intercept to depth and along strike to the north and south on the Aida structural corridor. In 2021 wide-spaced regional BoT/ToB drilling identified several additional anomalous Au and pathfinder anomalies at Aida coincident with sub-parallel structural corridors.

Gold Line’s Paubacken Project consists of three main target zones, Aida, Belle and Harpsund.  Summer work programs continued systematic exploration of the target areas and leave the company well positioned with extensive targets in the project area.  “We are following up a very exciting technical milestone in our exploration programs to date, and expect to be busy throughout the fall and winter drilling seasons”,  Commented CEO Adam Cegielski.

About the Paubäcken Project

The Paubäcken Project consists of 3 licenses covering 17,097 hectares that cover the central part of an emerging district in north central Sweden known as the “Gold Line Belt”. The Gold Line Belt is host to several significant gold deposits, including the nearby Barsele project (operated as a joint venture between Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. and Barsele Minerals Corp) as well as the Svartliden mine and Fäboliden development project (operated by Dragon Mining Ltd). The Svartliden mine was in production from 2005 to 2015 and a total of 3.18 million tonnes of material grading 4.1 g/t Au was processed during its operation (http://www.dragonmining.com/svartliden).

The Paubäcken Project is strategically positioned between Barsele and Fäboliden, is a few hundred meters northeast of the Svartliden mine, within the Gold Line Belt in northern Sweden. The Project contains 22 kilometres of the regionally significant “Gold Line” structure which can be traced for over 200 kilometres in regional geophysics data. All mineralization discovered to date shows a spatial relationship to this structural corridor, occurring mainly on second and third order splay structures. The Geology of the Paubacken project consists of a sequence of inverted basin sediments and mafic volcanic rocks intruded by small syn-kinematic granitic intrusions within a broad, anastomosing high strain structural corridor. The rocks are regionally metamorphosed to upper greenschist and amphibolite grade and gold mineralization is associated with intense sericite, carbonate, biotite, and calc-silicate alteration assemblages and sulphide minerals pyrite, arsenopyrite, and pyrrhotite. These lithological sequences are highly prospective for orogenic gold deposits.
