Golden Arrow Resources Corporation: Drilling Commences at Chinchillas Silver Project

Golden Arrow Resources Corporation (TSX-V: GRG, FSE: GAC (WKN:

A0B6XQ), "Golden Arrow" or the "Company") is

pleased to announce that a 3,000 m drill program is now underway at

its Chinchillas Silver Project, in Jujuy, Argentina. The Phase 1

program will include infill and expansion drilling around the

historically defined mineralized zones as well as new mineralized


The target at Chinchillas is a bulk tonnage silver-lead-zinc deposit

located within the southern extension of the well-known Bolivian

silver-zinc-tin belt. Examples of similar projects in the district

include Silver Standard's Pirquitas silver mine, 148 Moz Proven and

Probable reserves at 140.6 g/t Ag from which 7.1 Moz silver was

produced in 20111, located 30 km southwest of Chinchillas and Golden

Mineral's El Quevar project, with a Measured and Indicated Resource of

59.9 Moz grading 310 g/t Ag2, located 200 km south.

New Surface Sampling Results

Highlights from recently completed rock chip sampling within

mineralized breccia zones by the Company?s team include:

-5,040 grams per tonne (g/t) Ag and 1.6% Pb over 1 m

-99.7 g/t Ag over 0.6 m

-251.1 g/t Ag, 3.1% Pb and 2.1% Zn over 0.5 m

-530 g/t Ag and 4.3% Pb over 1 m

Previous Drilling Results

14 drill holes were completed previously of which 11 holes cut

potentially economic mineralized intercepts. Highlights include:

-112 m at 86 g/t AgEQ* (silver equivalent), 38.9 g/t Ag, 0.80% Pb,

1.6% Zn including 44 m at 111 g/t AgEQ* in CH-1 Socavon del Diablo

-14 m at 8.06% Zn in CH-6 Zinc Zone

-20 m at 183.1 g/t Ag and 8 m at 228.8 g/t Ag in CHD-15 Silver Manto

*Silver Equivalents (AgEQ) were calculated using US$ 31.70/oz for

Silver, US$ 0.93/lb for lead and US$0.91/lb for Zn; metallurgical

recoveries and net smelter returns are assumed to be 100%.
