Mr. Frank Basa reports:
Rouyn Noranda, QC – July 16, 2020 – Granada Gold Mine (TSX.V: GGM) (“Granada Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has retained the services of Innovexplo with a site visit this past week at the Granada Mine Site for a revised 43-101 resource.
Innovexplo - Established in 2003, their mission is to contribute in an innovating, objective and efficient manner to the evolution of mining projects by offering a complete and integrated range of dependable and top-quality services at each phase of exploration and mining operations.
“Granada is currently drilling key holes to increase underground resources quality below existing pit constrained mineral resources”. said Frank J. Basa, P.Eng., Granada Gold’s President and CEO. “The company has decided that a revised 43-101 should be undertaken at this stage to better reflect the potential of the resource”.
Granada undertook a grab sample of about 1000 kilograms of mineralized material containing visible gold in the vicinity of hole GR-19-A. Drilled in 2019 from surface, the interval from zero to 33 meters core length returned 11.45 grams per tonne gold. Visible gold was present in the core. It is estimated that the true width is 6.3 meters (see 2020-01-09 news release). The sample was sent to Temiskaming Testing Laboratories in Cobalt, Ontario for gravity gold recovery.

About Granada Gold Mine Inc.
Granada Gold Mine Inc. is continuing to develop the Granada Gold Property near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. The property includes the former Granada gold mine which produced more than 50,000 ounces of gold at 10 grams per tonne gold in the 1930’s before a fire destroyed the surface buildings. Approximately 120,000 meters of drilling has been completed to date on the property, focused mainly on the extended LONG Bars zone which trends 2 kilometers east west over a potential 5.5 kilometers mineralized structure. The highly prolific Cadillac Trend, the source of 50 million plus ounces of gold production in the past century, cuts right through the north part of the Granada property on a line running from Val-d’Or to Rouyn-Noranda Quebec.
The Company is in possession of all permits required to commence the initial mining phase known as the “Rolling Start”, which allows the company to mine up to 550 tonnes per day, capable of producing up to 675,000 tonnes of ore over a 3-year period of time.
