2,000 Metres of Drilling along the 6 kilometre prospective gold horizon
TORONTO, ON – October 28, 2020 – Graycliff Exploration Limited (the “Company” or “Graycliff”) (CSE: GRAY and FSE: GE0) is pleased to announce that the Company’s maiden drill program has commenced at the Shakespeare Gold Project, near Sudbury, Ontario. Graycliff will complete 2,000 metres (“m”) of core drilling in 2020. The program will initially be focused on the area surrounding the former Shakespeare Mine shaft and along strike for over six (6) kilometres following the prospective gold horizon that the Company has identified through its analysis of historical data.

The Company has also initiated the permitting process to re-open the exploration adit that was driven into the 3rd level (the “#3 Adit”) of the former Shakespeare Mine (see press release date October 21, 2020), which will allow the Company to carry out additional drilling from underground.
“As the former shaft was positioned on the top of a fault that is most likely a splay off of the Murray Fault (a regional structure over 300 kilometres in length) the #3 Adit is at ground level. Being able to access the third level will allow us to confirm historic sampling, which included assay results of up to 63.4 grams of gold per tonne (“g/t Au”) over 1 m and 38.4 g/t Au over 1 m,” stated James Macintosh, President and CEO.”
The assay result cited above was taken from a historic report (Card – 1976). Readers are advised that the historical records referred to in this release were examined, but not verified by a “Qualified Person”. Further work is required to verify that the historical assays referred to in this release are accurate.
The Company also announces that it has granted 200,000 options to Directors of the Company.
