Sixty North Gold Mining Ltd. Expands Its Land Package by 25.8%

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 18, 2018) – Sixty North Gold Mining Ltd. (CSE: SXTY) (FSE: 2F4) (the “Company” or “Sixty North Gold”) is pleased to announce that it has expanded its land package in the Yellowknife Gold Belt by 25.8 %, with an additional 127.75 hectares (315.68 acres). The added mineral claim (NDM3) abuts the existing property on the southwest side. All Company claims and mining leases are shown on the attached map.

The addition is underlain by the same group of rocks that host the past-producing multimillion ounce Con Mine and Giant Mine gold deposits in Yellowknife and the proximal Clan Lake deposit (Goldmining Inc.), which are the Kam Group and Banting Group respectively, as discussed in the Company’s NI 43-101 report dated December 11, 2017 and filed on SEDAR. Proximity to existing or past gold deposits is not an indication of gold mineralization on the Company’s property.

“The increase in our land package brings the Company significant opportunity for increased area exploration” stated Ronald Handford, Chief Executive Officer of Sixty North Gold. “Sixty North Gold is now surrounded by claims held by TerraX Minerals Inc. and others, confirming the interest in the potential in this area of the Yellowknife Gold Belt. Sixty North Gold intends to commence surface exploration on its mineral claims in early June this year.”

Dr. D.R. Webb, Ph.D., P.Geo., P.Eng. is the Qualified Person for this release within the meaning of NI 43-101 and has reviewed the technical content of this release and has approved its content.
