Kamloops, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 8, 2021) – Advance Gold Corp. (TSXV: AAX) (“Advance Gold” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce results from the first four core holes drilled at its Saldivar Salar, which is one of 13 salars it recently acquired in central Mexico.

Allan Barry Laboucan, President and CEO of Advance Gold Corp. commented: “We have recently completed seven core holes at Saldivar with four reported today, and three more pending. The first two holes went to bedrock at 84m and 77m. These two deeper holes were designed to test the depth to bedrock. With the five auger holes and now four core holes we have established widespread lithium, boron and potassium distribution starting at the surface and continuous to bedrock. These early assay results appear to indicate that the Lithium content increases with depth and increases as we move towards the centre of the salar. The surface expression of the Saldivar salar is approximately 2000 metres north to south and 800 metres east to west with a depth of 80 metres. The drilling clearly establishes the Saldivar salar as a bulk tonnage, open pit target. We are also working to optimize our recovery process to prepare our test plant for bulk sampling.”

Drill core is logged and sampled in a secure core storage facility located near the Saldivar salar. Core samples were delivered to ALS Global in Zacatecas, Mexico, for sample preparation, then concentrates sent to ALS Global in Vancouver, Canada for assaying. Standard rock preparation was done and then aqua regia digestion with multi-element ICP-MS41. The Company relies on ALS Global for QA/QC procedures.
