Vancouver, British Columbia – March 3, 2020 – GoldMining Inc. (the "Company" or "GoldMining") (TSX: GOLD; OTCQX: GLDLF) is pleased to announce the completion of its previously announced indirect acquisition of the Almaden Gold Project (the "Almaden Project"), located in west-central Idaho, from Sailfish Royalty Corp. and its wholly-owned subsidiary.
The total purchase price under the transaction was $1,150,000, which was satisfied by the Company paying $575,0000 in cash and issuing 337,619 GoldMining shares at a deemed price of $1.70 per share.
The shares issued under the transaction are subject to a four month and one day hold period and certain additional ongoing resale restrictions pursuant to the terms of the agreement.
The Company has engaged an independent qualified person to complete a technical report and current resource estimate for the Almaden Project. The qualified person will review and verify historic sampling and results, examine the cut-off grade with reference to today's metal prices, and update the historical resource estimate on the Almaden Project completed by Western Standard Metals Ltd. in 2009.
The Almaden Project covers approximately 1,724 Ha and is located approximately 140 km by road north of Boise and approximately 24 km east of Weiser in Washington County, Idaho.
The Almaden Project is one of several low-sulphidation epithermal gold deposits related to the Northern Nevada Rift that includes Hecla Mining Company's Hollister and Midas Mines in northern Nevada, and Integra Resources Corp.'s Delamar and Florida Canyon projects in southwest Idaho.
Gold mineralization at the Almaden Project is hosted in sinter and silicified (opal) sedimentary rocks of the Miocene Payette Formation that are underlain by chalcedonic veins and stockworks that form a near surface, relatively flat lying deposit. Gold mineralization is associated with intense silicification and argillic alteration that measures approximately 1,900 m long by 500 m wide by 150 m thick.
