Highlighted Mineralized intervals are calculated using a 0.5 g/t cutoff, with high-grade Mother Lode Structure using a 2 g/t cutoff
|ML-17-005:||33.53 metres @ 2.91 g/t gold

|ML-17-007:||54.87 metres @ 2.70 g/t gold

Corvus Gold Inc. (“Corvus” or the “Company”) – (TSX:KOR) (OTCQX:CORVF) announces it has received assays results from three new drill holes at its Mother Lode project in southern Nevada (Table 1). The new results are from the Main Target area (Figure 1) and continues to confirm and expand the Upper and Lower Zones of the deposit to the North and at depth with broad intercepts that include hole ML-005, 33.53m @ 2.91 g/t Au & ML-17-007, 54.82m @ 2.70 g/t Au (both intercepts at 0.5 g/t gold cutoff). Additionally, the higher-grade Mother Lode Structural Zone continues to track north and extend at depth (ML-005, 10.67m @ 6.27 g/t Au north extension & ML17-007, 9.14m @ 6.96 g/t Au deepest hit to date at ~250m down hole).
These most recent holes have also intersected a new upper zone of low-grade mineralization in the Crater Flat Tuff (CF Zone), with oxide mineralization that the Company believes could be potentially similar to Corvus’ Sierra Blanca deposit at the North Bullfrog property, as well as the Secret Pass deposit and the Bullfrog deposit to the west. There was little to no historical data on the CF Zone as many parts of this area were never assayed when it was previously drilled. Additionally, hole ML17-005 ended in low-grade mineralization below the Lower Zone target which the Company believes could be indicating a low-grade halo from the Deep Target Zone below. Corvus has recently began a series of deeper holes to 450 metres to evaluate the Deep Target potential in the main intrusive center area of the gold system.
Jeff Pontius, President and CEO of Corvus states, “These latest results are expanding the overall Mother Lode gold deposit as well as identifying new areas of gold mineralization in the system. The consistent high-grade nature of the Mother Lode deposit is characteristic of a large, intrusion related, sediment hosted deposit. In addition, the continuity of the high-grade Mother Lode Structural Zone is encouraging as it is now defining a sizable body that remains open to the north and down dip with multiple +5 g/t gold over 10 metre intercepts.”

The work program at Mother Lode was designed and supervised by Mark Reischman, Corvus Gold’s Nevada Exploration Manager, who is responsible for all aspects of the work, including the quality control/quality assurance program. On-site personnel at the project log and track all samples prior to sealing and shipping. Quality control is monitored by the insertion of blind certified standard reference materials and blanks into each sample shipment. All resource sample shipments are sealed and shipped to American Assay Laboratories (AAL) in Reno, Nevada, for preparation and assaying. AAL’s quality system complies with the requirements for the International Standards ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 17025:1999. Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored by the analysis of reagent blanks, reference material and replicate samples. Finally, representative blind duplicate samples are forwarded to AAL and an ISO compliant third-party laboratory for additional quality control.
