ML Gold Reports Final Three Holes from 2018 Program Including 0.3% Cu, 0.39% CuEQ over 94.5 Metres

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 9, 2019) – ML Gold Corp. (TSX-V: MLG; FSE: XOVN.F) (“ML Gold” or the “Company”) reports the final three holes of the 2018 diamond drilling program. Porphyry copper mineralization has now been intersected in holes 014, 015 and 016 (DD18SS014 – DD18SS016). Well-developed copper mineralization discovered at the Stars Project has a mineralized strike length of greater than 400 metres, width of greater than 200 meters and depth of greater than 350 metres and remains open in all directions. Significant intersections from the final three holes are set out in table 1 below.

The Stars Project is located in Central British Columbia, Canada, 60km southwest of the resource town of Houston, B.C. The project site is low-elevation, gentle topography, and is accessible by all-season main line resource roads.

Quality assurance/quality control procedures:

All drill core was logged, photographed, cut and sampled by ML Gold personnel. Prior to shipment to MS Analytical’s sample preparation facility in Langley, B.C., certified reference material standards and blanks were inserted at a ratio of approximately one in every 10 drill core samples. Base metal assays are determined by IMS-230 4-acid digestion with ICP-AES/MS finish method, which reports results as parts per million (ppm). All analyses that reach the overlimit of IMS-230 are reanalyzed with an ore-grade method. The analytical results are verified with the application of industry-standard quality control and quality assurance procedures. The gold assays are determined by FAS-111 fire assay method which reports results in parts per million (equivalent to grams per tonne). Any samples with a fire assay that report gold concentrations equal to or higher than 10.0 g/t Au are analyzed by metallic screen method (Au-SCR24).
