Gold Standard Discovers a New Zone of Silver and Copper

Gold Standard Discovers a New Zone of Silver and Copper
Mineralization on Its Central Bullion Area at the Railroad Project,
Carlin Gold Trend, Nevada 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 -- Gold
Standard Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GSV)(NYSE MKT:GSV)(NYSE
Amex:GSV) ("Gold Standard" or the "Company") (www.goldstandardv.com)
today reported assays from a new, previously unknown zone of copper
and silver mineralization in the historic Central Bullion target
area. RRB12-03, a core hole completed in November, intersected 65
feet of 3.06 oz silver per short ton with 0.80% copper and 0.08%
molybdenum from 45 to 110 feet within a 250 foot thick zone of 1.3 oz
Ag/st and 0.25% Cu, and a second higher-grade zone of 44 feet of 6.42
oz silver per short ton with 2.48% copper from 913 to 957 feet within
a 187 foot thick zone of 1.7 oz Ag/st and 0.78% Cu (see table below).
Both zones of mineralization occur within skarn straddling a
granodiorite dike. The true thicknesses of these mineralized zones
are unknown at this stage, however mineralization appears to be
broadly disseminated and is relatively uniformly distributed within
the skarn.  
RRB12-03 is a -45 degrees core hole that was drilled to test a
west-northwest trending dike-filled corridor of skarn and a
coincident surface soil anomaly of copper and other metals, adjacent
to the Tertiary and Cretaceous age Bullion stock (see map at
http://goldstandardv.com/railroad-central-bullion-targets/ for
locations of hole drilled by GSV). This intercept represents a new,
previously unknown zone of strong silver and copper mineralization.
Previous holes have encountered relatively thin zones of copper,
silver and other metals (see RRB12-01 and 02 in 2012 drill table on
website at http://goldstandardv.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Drill-Table-2012.pdf).Up to now, the Central Bullion target area has received only 
limited
exploration due to drill permitting limitations. With the Plan of
Operations (POO) finalized in December, 2012, Gold Standard Ventures
can now proceed with a more aggressive drilling program.  
Dave Mathewson, Gold Standard's Vice President of Exploration, states
that, "The Central Bullion target area has been of compelling
interest from the onset of our Railroad exploration program bec
ause
of the exceptional high grades of metals historically mined in the
area combined with the presence of a large area of strong surface
rock and soil geochemistry, and the limited amount drilling,
especially with core, conducted in this target area. RRB12-03 is by
far the best hole we have drilled in the area, and it appears to be
indicative of an important new zone of mineralization."

Sampling Methodology, Chain of Custody, Quality Control and Quality
Assurance:  
All sampling was conducted under the supervision of the Company's
project geologists and the chain of custody from the drill to the
sample preparation facility was continuously monitored. Core was cut
at the Company's facility in Elko and one half was sent to the lab
for analysis and the other half retained in the original core box. A
blank, quarter core duplicate or certified reference material was
inserted approximately every tenth sample. The samples are delivered
to ALS Minerals preparation facility in Elko. The samples are crushed
and pulverized and sample pulps are shipped to ALS Minerals certified
laboratory in Vancouver. Pulps are digested and analyzed for gold
using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS)
finish on a 30 gram split. All other elements are determined by ICP
analysis. Data verification of the analytical results includes a
statistical analysis of the duplicates, standards and blanks that
must pass certain parameters for acceptance to insure accurate and
verifiable results.
