Major Drilling Reports Second Quarter Results for Fiscal 2018

“Exploration activity levels continue to increase in all regions. While revenue is up 10% as compared to the same quarter last year, the volume of activity increased by more than 10%, given the negative impact of foreign exchange translation on revenue as the US dollar weakened compared to the previous year,” said Denis Larocque, President and CEO of Major Drilling Group International Inc. “We are pleased to see a return of demand for our services in South America and Asia, regions that were most affected by the cyclical downturn. Although drilling prices have not yet recovered, margins improved during the quarter, mainly driven by improved productivity.”

Marlin Gold Reports $27.1 Million ($0.16 per share) of Adjusted EBITDA and $13.9 Million ($0.08 per share) of Net Loss for the Nine Months Ending September 30, 2017

Akiba Leisman, Executive Chairman and Interim CEO states that, “Q3 was an especially active quarter for Marlin. Most of the activity focused on expanding and deepening the north side of the Taunus pit and mitigating the rainy season at the La Trinidad Mine. Rainy season ended in early October and the Company regained access to the remaining high grade HS Zone in the north side of the Taunus pit. The Company is now focused on accessing the high grade HS Zone in the south side of the pit, drilling exploration targets at Colinas (less than one kilometer from the pit) and completing an expanded 30-hole exploration program at Commonwealth.”

Almadex Reports First Holes From Raya Tembrillo (Villa Rica). Intersects Enriched Copper Zone and Hypogene Copper-Gold Porphyry. Cuts 83.90 m of 0.75% Copper and 0.13 g/t Gold and 115.00 m of 0-57 g/t Gold and 0.27% Copper

J. Duane Poliquin, Chairman of Almadex commented, “We are very excited to report these first assays from the very northern part of the large Villa Rica Zone. We believe that these results are proof of large scale porphyry potential in this part of the project. While we have demonstrated the potential for a significant deposit with our Norte drilling, today’s first pass results at Raya Tembrillo clearly show that we are dealing with a large cluster of porphyry systems all of which hold the potential to be important porphyry copper-gold deposits.”

Wolverine Advances Work On Los Venados Property

The field program currently underway will consist of geochemical rock and soil sampling, geological field mapping, and a 7.4 line-kilometer Induced Polarization geophysical survey. The IP survey will include 2 east-west lines between the existing IP data and the Mulatos mine boundary to the south (2,100 meters each) and one north-south line targeting the center of the felsic dome which has been identified. The primary objective of this field program is to further define drill targets with the anticipation of drilling in the first quarter of 2018.

Santacruz Silver Reports Third Quarter 2017 Production and Financial Results

“In the third quarter the Company dealt with production equipment challenges at both the Rosario Project and Veta Grande Project compounded by lower than expected head grades,” stated Arturo Préstamo, President and Chief Executive Officer of Santacruz. “Importantly, at Veta Grande we successfully reached Level 6 where we are currently developing in situ mineralized material contained in pillars located in the Veta Grande vein. Preliminary assay results from chip samples collected across of this material are indicating higher grades.” Prestamo continued, “At Rosario we reached Level 2 of the Membrillo Prospect where we again are seeing higher grades from preliminary assay results from chip samples collected across the main Membrillo vein. We remain focused on developing these key projects with anticipated improvement.”

SilverCrest Continues to Intercept High-Grade Mineralization at Las Chispas Property, Extensions to Las Chispas and Giovanni Veins

N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng, President and CEO, remarked, “These results are building on our previous drilling and underground sampling program, which has demonstrated intact semi-continuous high-grade mineralization for the Las Chispas and Giovanni veins. As part of our expanded Phase II Exploration Program, we intend to continue with underground drilling and channel sampling on the Las Chispas and Giovanni veins through Q1 2018. We remain on track to deliver a maiden resource estimate in Q1 2018 which will include the Las Chispas, Giovanni, William Tell and Babicanora veins.”

SilverCrest Expands Babicanora High-Grade Footprint to One Kilometre

N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng, President and CEO, remarked, “Our continued step-out drilling along the strike of the Babicanora Vein has added another 400 metres to the previously announced high-grade footprint, bringing the total strike length to one kilometre. The Babicanora Vein has clearly developed into the most significant source of high-grade mineralization in the district. We are planning an additional 10 to 15 surface holes at the Babicanora Vein to infill recent results and test for further extensions before mid-January 2018. In addition, we will continue underground drilling at the Las Chispas and Giovanni veins. Drilling to date has intercepted areas of high-grade mineralization in all targeted veins, warranting further drilling to better define continuity and volume. We remain on track to complete our expanded Phase II program by mid-January 2018 in anticipation of releasing a maiden resource estimate for the Las Chispas Property in February 2018.”

Marlin Gold Intersects 10.57 g/t Au Over 6.00m at the Colinas Target Less Than 1km Southeast of the Taunus Pit at the La Trinidad Mine

Akiba Leisman, Executive Chairman and Interim CEO states that “this is a watershed moment for the La Trinidad Mine. Following up on an extensive review of geochemistry, geophysics, surface mapping and trenching at Colinas, we were able to hone in on an additional and potentially significant gold zone within our permitted mining boundary. In fact, the Colinas target area is a shorter haul distance to our processing infrastructure than where we are currently mining within the Taunus pit. The first two holes at Colinas, of which the first was abandoned mid-hole, have returned multiple high grade intercepts, highlighted by 10.57 g/t Au over 6.00 meters in hole 17COLDDH02. Most importantly, drilling thus far is suggesting that the gold-hosting structural corridor needs to be reinterpreted 100 meters to the west, leaving large areas of prospective ground untested.”
