Will this seal?

You might be overthinking it.  The headgasket has a soft surface designed to press in to slight imperfections.  Your imperfection is less than slight.

If I'm looking at that correctly that is on the outer edge of the block? The big hole is for venting the block and letting the oil pass through the head so it isn't really under pressure. 

 

Cometic gaskets are coated in a thin layer of rubber. I believe copper gasket spray uses acetone which can lift and shift the layer so they told me not to use any. People still do and swear by it, but that is against their recommendation. If it is deep enough to cause you worry, granny knot's recommendation is probably a better option, but it would have to be the thinnest of smear and that would probably be overkill as newzed points out.
