Contact Gold Drills 35 Metres of 1.68 g/t Gold at Green Springs

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 14, 2020) - Contact Gold Corp. (TSXV: C) (the "Company" or "Contact Gold") is pleased to announce results from 4 drill holes from the Alpha Zone at its Green Springs gold project located on the Cortez Trend in Nevada. Drilling results from the Echo, Charlie and Bravo Zones are pending.
Contact Gold Drill Highlights - Alpha Zone:
"The first six holes of our maiden drill program at Green Springs were very successful in identifying oxide gold where it was previously overlooked. In addition, drilling clearly demonstrated the continuity of gold mineralization along the basal Pilot Shale." said Matt Lennox-King, President & CEO of Contact Gold. "Now that proof of concept is established our team can move forward confidently with our exploration of the basal Pilot Shale below the other known gold zones hosted in higher stratigraphic units. This proof of concept also means we can step north to the undrilled Tango target, where the Pilot Shale contact with the Guilmette daylights and is associated with a 450 m x 150 m gold-in-soil anomaly. We also look forward to drill results from the next holes at Green Springs including those the Echo Zone where re-assaying historic drill splits in 2019 (see news release October 2, 2019) found high grade gold mineralization to be well oxidized."
Drilling - Key Points:
The Alpha Zone was discovered by RC drilling in the late 1980's when drilling was mostly limited to extremely shallow depths, typically less than 100 metres. It is a zone of shallow gold mineralization hosted along the lower contact of the Pilot Shale with the underlying Guilmette Limestone. Based on previous drilling - mostly in sparse, shallow, vertical holes - the current footprint of gold mineralization at Alpha measures 500m x 250m. The Pilot Shale - Guilmette Limestone contact, which hosts gold at the Alpha Zone, comes to surface 500m north of the Alpha Zone which corresponds to numerous anomalous gold-in-soil samples with values ranging from 122ppb Au to 1070 ppb Au (collected by previous operators) over a footprint of 450m x 150m. Contact Gold geologists mapped and rock sampled the area in early winter and those assay results are pending.
The Green Springs project is fully permitted under a 70 acre Plan of Operations permit from the United States Forestry Service, which covers drilling and exploration activities across all known zones and new targets. Contact Gold completed 1,300 metres in 10 drill holes at the Alpha, Echo, Charlie and Bravo zones in its first drill program at Green Springs.

Contact Gold signed a purchase option agreement with Ely Gold Royalties ("Ely Gold") to acquire an undivided 100% interest in Green Springs in July 2019. Green Springs is an early stage exploration property and does not contain any mineral resource estimates as defined by National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"). There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource estimate at Green Springs.
The scientific and technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Vance Spalding, CPG, VP Exploration, Contact Gold, who is a "qualified person" within the meaning of NI 43-101. Drill intercepts were calculated using a minimum thickness of 3.05 metres averaging 0.14 ppm gold and allowing inclusion of up to 4.57 metres of material averaging less than 0.14 ppm gold for low grade intervals and higher grade intervals were calculated using a minimum thickness of 3.05 metres averaging 1.00 ppm gold and allowing inclusion of up to 4.57 metres of assays averaging less than 1.00 ppm gold. Gravimetric assays are used for all Fire Assays above 4.00 ppm gold. Cyanide solubility assays are completed on all Fire Assays greater than 0.1 g/t. True width of drilled mineralization is unknown, but owing to the apparent flat lying nature of mineralization, is estimated to generally be at least 70% of drilled thickness. Quality Assurance / Quality Control consists of regular insertion of certified reference standards, blanks, and duplicates. All failures are followed up and resolved whenever possible with additional investigation whenever such an event occurs. All assays are completed at ALS Chemex; an ISO 17025:2005 accredited lab. Check assays are completed at a second, reputable assay lab after the program is complete.
