WOODSTOCK, Ontario, April 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Joshua Gold Resources Inc. ("JSHG", or "Joshua Gold") is pleased to announce that its planned initial diamond drilling program on the C1 Property has commenced.

The C1 Property is located approximately 90 km southwest of Timmins, ON and lies within the prolific Swayze Greenstone Belt. JSHG has an initial 50% interest in this project, comprising 21 contiguous claim units covering 336 ha (830 acres).

This phase of the program will be focused on the area around the C1 Mortimer trench. An excerpt from the report, Hastie, E.C.G., Lafrance, B. and Kontak, D.J., 2015, Observations on the Kenty and Rundle deposits, Swayze greenstone belt; in Summary of Field Work and Other Activities 2015, Ontario Geological Survey, Open File Report 6313, p.9-1 to 9-9, stated: "Quartz-feldspar veins with basalt fragments crosscut all rock types and are surrounded by an alteration halo of ankerite-albite-sericite-pyrite ± chlorite. The veins are 5 to 30 cm wide, strike northwest and have sub-vertical dips, with the exception of a quartz-feldspar vein at the C1 Mortimer trench that dips shallowly (≈30°) and has a strike that varies. This shallowly dipping vein follows the contact between the feldspar porphyry unit and the pillow basalt and cuts across the latter. The vein is both cut by and crosscuts sub-vertical quartz-feldspar veins (1 to 3 cm) that display 2 dominant trends (210° and 310°). Visible gold was found within fractures and on the boundaries of the shallowly dipping quartz-feldspar vein at the C1 Mortimer trench."
