Drilling at Golden Mountain had been paused through the heat of the summer fire season. The new drilling campaign will follow on the 2020 drill success to drill deeper and further delineate the size and structure of this robust system.

Results from the initial drilling at Golden Mountain in 2020 included multiple strong gold assays, such as drill hole GMDH26 which recorded 5.8 metres at 18.4 g/t gold including 4.6 m at 22.68 g/t gold and drill hole GMDH28 which recorded 39.5 metres at 7.25 g/t gold including 10.6 m at 17.1 g/t gold and GMDH36 which recorded 28 metres at 10.2 g/t gold including 13 metres at 17.5 g/t gold and 11 m at 4.8 g/t gold and GMDH30 which recorded 27.6 metres at 6.7 g/t gold, including 8.0 metres at 11.9 g/t gold and GMDH 45, which recorded 55.1 metres at 3.06 g/t gold, including 15.9 metres at 6.93 g/t gold in the deepest hole drilled to date in the N-S zone.

Management Comments

We are excited to re-commence drilling at Golden Mountain, where results from 2020 indicate the potential for a robust system with excellent grades and size.

“The re-start of work at Golden Mountain is concurrent with continuing drilling at Lauriston and Moormbool and field work at Providence (Reedy Creek target) and the Walhalla Gold Belt (Enoch’s Point target).”

Fosterville South Chief Operating Officer and Director, Rex Motton


Corporate Matters

The Company also announces the resignation of Mr. James Hutton as Director and Chairman of the Board due to health reasons of an immediate family member. Mr. Hutton will continue to support the Company in an advisory capacity on an as needed basis.

Since co-founding Fosterville South, I have always firmly believed in the future of the Company’s projects. It is therefore with great regret that I have to resign from the Company in order to fully support my family in our fight against brain cancer,

James Hutton.



James always was and remains a strong supporter of the Company’s potential.

We appreciate his role in co-founding the Company and his significant contributions since that time.

We regret having to accept his resignation but wish him and his family all the best in this battle which they are facing with courage,”

Bryan Slusarchuk, CEO.

About Fosterville South Exploration Ltd.

Fosterville South began with two, 100% owned, high-grade gold projects called the Lauriston and Golden Mountain Projects.

FSX has since acquired a large area of granted and application tenements containing further epizonal (low-temperature) high-grade gold mineralisation called the Providence Project and a large group of recently consolidated license tenement applications called the Walhalla Belt Project, which contain a variety of epizonal and intrusion related style gold mineralisation, all in the state of Victoria, Australia.

The Fosterville South land package, assembled over a multi-year period, notably includes a 600 sq. km property immediately to the south of and within the same geological framework that hosts Kirkland Lake Gold’s Fosterville epizonal gold tenements.

Additionally, Fosterville South has gold-focused projects called the Moormbool and Beechworth, which are also located in the state of Victoria, Australia. Moormbool project has epizonal style gold mineralisation and Beechworth has mesozonal and intrusion relation gold mineralisation.


All of Fosterville South’s properties, with the possible exception of Moormbool, have had historical gold production from hard rock sources despite limited modern exploration and drilling.
