Spokane, WA - October 26, 2011 - Goldrich Mining Company (OTCBB: GRMC) (the "Company") has completed its 2011 diamond core drilling campaign at Chandalar, Alaska along with property-wide grid-based soil sampling and a detailed airborne magnetometer survey.
The Company drilled 25 HQ size core holes totaling approximately 15,000 feet in five target areas. The drilling contractor completed the last hole on September 30th. Drill core assays have a turnaround time of approximately six weeks and all assay results should be compiled and released by mid to late November 2011.
The soil sampling, prioritized to first cover known mineralized trends, consisted of over 1,100 samples collected on a reconnaissance scale grid over approximately 65 percent of the 23,000-acre Chandalar property. In the airborne geophysical survey, approximately 750 line miles (1,246 line kilometers) were flown by an international geophysical contractor over the entire Chandalar property along flight lines 100 meters apart. Preliminary magnetic data reveals known mineralized structures with good clarity and, more importantly, identifies sharp new prospect-scale and district-scale anomalies and mineralized trends.
The 2011 exploration season was successful in significantly expanding the Company's existing body of geological knowledge about its Chandalar property. The combination of core, soil and magnetic data is expected to provide a solid foundation for going forward with a thorough exploration and evaluation of the numerous gold occurrences on the property.
