Scorpio Gold Reports Additional Results from 2015 Expansion Drilling on the NW Brodie Trend, Mineral Ridge Project, Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 26, 2015) – Scorpio Gold Corporation (“Scorpio Gold” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:SGN) reports additional results from the 2015 expansion drilling program on the NW Brodie trend at its70% owned Mineral Ridge project, located in Nevada.

Exploration drilling along the NW Brodie trend in 2015 continues to outline a semi-continuous mineralized corridor up to 300 meters wide that extends over a 500 meter strike length between the Brodie and Bluelite deposits. This area lies well outside of currently defined resources and modelled pit outlines. The Company’s management believes that results to date are promising and may potentially allow for building a new resource in this area.

Highlights from this latest phase of the 2015 drilling program on the NW Brodie trend include:

  • MR151623: 3.81 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold over 3.05 meters
  • MR151634: 1.11 g/t gold over 4.57 meters
  • MR151635: 1.04 g/t gold over 7.62 meters
  • MR151636: 1.23 g/t gold over 9.14 meters
  • MR151637: 1.16 g/t gold over 3.05 meters
  • MR151661: 4.07 g/t gold over 18.29 meters
  • MR151752: 4.87 g/t gold over 4.57 meters
  • MR151754: 2.54 g/t gold over 6.10 meters
  • MR151756: 3.98 g/t gold over 6.10 meters

All holes presented in Table 1 were completed by reverse circulation (RC) drilling. True width is estimated at 80-100% of downhole width. Analytical results were performed by American Assay Laboratory Inc. in Sparks, Nevada, an ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited facility. External check assays to verify lab accuracy are routinely completed by ALS Chemex, an ISO 9001:2000 certified and ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited facility.
