Triumph Gold Corp. TSXV$TIG $NFRGF announced that prospecting and step out drilling to the east and west of the Revenue diatreme have been rewarded with significant new discoveries including:
Triumph Gold completed 12,904m of diamond drilling in 35 holes during 2017. Results from 17 holes totalling 7,632m have been released to date. The remaining results will be released in the coming weeks.
Table 1: Location and Orientation of 2017 Diamond Drill Holes Testing the Blue Sky and Keirsten Zones
|Hole #||Easting**||Northing**||Azimuth||Inclination||Depth (m)|
Motivation for Step Out Drilling
A primary objective of the 2017 drill program near Revenue was to demonstrate through systematic step outs that the Revenue diatreme is part of a larger porphyry system. The idea was tested with drilling at the Blue Sky and Keirsten Zones which extend approximately 1 km to the east and west of the Revenue diatreme, respectively (Figure 1). The motivation for the broad expansion of the exploration target at Revenue was identification of porphyry style high-grade copper-gold-silver and molybdenum mineralization that predates diatreme emplacement, in drill holes adjacent to the Revenue diatreme (noted below and Figure 1).
While the diatreme is recognized as an exploration target itself, the possibility that it is surrounded by a porphyry with significant gold and copper grades remained largely untested until the 2017 drill program.
Porphyry Mineralization in the Blue Sky Zone
The Blue Sky Zone encompasses a multi-element soil anomaly that extends up to 1.5 km east of the Revenue diatreme (Figure 1). Relogging of core from RVD11-019, 022 and 028 in 2016 identified two stages of mineralization, including an early stage of classic porphyry related stockwork veining with potassic alteration with good gold-copper-molybdenum grades (see above). Step out drilling in 2017 was designed to test for eastward extensions of that mineralization within the Blue Sky Zone soil anomaly. Three drill holes that tested the Blue Sky Zone intersected significant porphyry style mineralization (Figure 1, Table 1, 2).
Together with results from RVD17-12 (PR#17-12, October 19, 2017: 245m of 0.37 CuEq* with a 58.65 metre high-grade core grading 0.971 g/t Au and 0.218% Cu), and historical drill holes RVD11-19, 22 and 28, a corridor of high-grade, gold-rich, porphyry style mineralization is now demonstrated over a strike length of 450m. The geometry of the mineralized zone is not well understood, but at minimum it is open at depth and to the northeast where, based on results from RVD17-13, it appears to be increasing in grade.

|Length*** (m)||Au (g/t)||Ag (g/t)||Cu
|Mo (%)||AuEq* (g/t)||CuEq* (%)|
Porphyry Mineralization in the Keirsten Zone
The Keirsten Zone is a newly identified target area within the roughly 5.5 X 2.0 km soil and geophysical anomaly that encompasses the Revenue and Nucleus areas (Figure 1). The area was targeted for exploration in 2017 to test an intense chargeability and resistivity high at depth. KZ17-01 was drilled near the center of the chargeability high. The top 193 metres of bedrock are phyllic altered quartz-feldspar porphyry, with textures identical to the dykes that are responsible for high-grade gold mineralization at the Nucleus deposit 1 km to the west. Beneath the quartz-feldspar-porphyry, to the end of hole at 603.50 metres, strongly veined and altered granite with complex overprinting propylitic, phyllic and potassic alteration assemblages was intersected. The granite is identical in texture and composition to granite in RVD17-12 and RVD17-13 up to 2.85 km to the east, and despite the lower grades of copper and gold in KZ17-01 (Table 4) compared to RVD17-12 and RVD17-13, the stockwork veining is more intense. It is of particular note in KZ17-01 that mineralization extends from the bedrock surface to the bottom of the hole at 603.50m depth. This is indicative of a large mineralized system, yet the Keirsten Zone is virtually unexplored in every direction. Encouraging results from surface samples collected from a new drill road within the zone are suggestive of nearby higher grade gold-rich domains (Table 3).
Table 3: Surface grab samples with significant Gold from the Keirsten Zone
Tony Barresi, Triumph’s VP Exploration, comments: “Geological results from drilling in the Keirsten Zone are encouraging. While the copper and gold grades in KZ17-01 are low, the continuity of mineralization and alteration and intensity of the veining are suggestive of a large and vigorous hydrothermal system that we are eager to continue to explore in 2018.”

Discovery of New Gold Showing – The Happy Creek Showing
A new zone of gold mineralization was discovered during reconnaissance prospecting and drilling within the Blue Sky Zone soil anomaly. RVD17-09, which represents a 1.1 km eastward step out into the Blue Sky Zone (Figure 1), intersected a broad zone of gold mineralization associated with a swarm of aplite, pegmatite and lesser quartz-feldspar-porphyry dykes. The upper 29 metres of core in RVD17-09 is strongly fractured and oxidized and grades 0.510 g/t gold; it is contained within a 269m intersection of 0.238 g/t gold, with ten longer than 1-meter samples grading over 1 g/t gold (Table 5). Two surface grab samples of bull quartz collected from regolith returned gold grades of 5.77 and 3.76 g/t (Table 6). The location of the Happy Creek showing, and the collar of RVD17-09 represents the farthest step out east of the Revenue diatreme to date. The showing is 1.1 km east of the Revenue diatreme and 400 metres east of any other drill holes. It is the only drill hole that has ever tested the Happy Creek drainage and mineralization is considered open in every direction.

|Hole #||From (m)||To (m)||Length*** (m)||Au (g/t)|
Table 6: Surface grab samples from the Happy Creek Showing
|Sample||Easting**||Northing**||Au (g/t)||Ag (g/t)|
Tony Barresi, Triumph’s VP Exploration, comments: “This new showing, which lies in the completely untested-by-drilling catchment of Happy Creek, a known placer creek, represents an exciting new exploration target. The tenor of gold mineralization encountered so far is similar to what was seen in some of the early drill holes and surface samples at Nucleus.”
Summary of Revenue Geology
Porphyry mineralization at Revenue extends from at least the Keirsten Zone to the Blue Sky Zone, and was encountered in the farthest step out holes both east and west of the Revenue diatreme. The mineralizing system is composed of a large porphyry, at least 2.85 km in strike length, with a mineralized diatreme in its center and the Nucleus gold deposit off its western flank. If gold mineralization encountered in the newly discovered Happy Creek showing is also porphyry related then the strike length of porphyry mineralization is increased to 3.6 km. Within the diatreme and surrounding granite there are numerous drill intersections of good copper-gold, silver and molybdenum grades, however, now with the results of 2017 drilling, there is a demonstrated zone of high-grade, gold-rich, porphyry style mineralization that extends at least 450 meters from the eastern margin of the Revenue diatreme eastward into the Blue Sky Zone, where it appears to be increasing in grade, and remains open to the northeast and depth.
Paul Reynolds, Triumph’s President & CEO, comments: “New drilling in 2017 has demonstrated a vast area of porphyry style mineralization extending at least 2.8 km from the Keirsten Zone to the Blue Sky Zone, both of which are new discoveries this year. In addition to defining a very large porphyry footprint we have also made numerous intersections of gold-rich high-grade porphyry mineralization (see this NR and NR17-12 dated October 19, 2017). The elements of size and grade are beginning to stack in our favour and the possibility that a very large porphyry deposit underlies what had previously appeared to be separate showings, is becoming more and more compelling as we continue to explore.”

Methods and Qualified Person
Drill core samples ranged between 1 and 2m length and were cut at Triumph’s core logging facility on the Freegold Mountain Property (Revenue Camp; Figure 1). The samples were analyzed by ALS Global of North Vancouver, British Columbia. They were prepared for analysis according to ALS method PREP35: each sample was crushed to 70% passing 2mm and a 250g split was pulverized to better than 95% passing 106 micron mesh. Gold was tested by fire assay with atomic absorption finish on a 30g nominal sample (method Au-AA23), and samples that tested over 10 g/t Au were retested using fire assay with a gravimetric finish (method Au-GRA21). An additional 35 elements were tested by ICP-AES using an Aqua Regia digestion (method ME-ICP41), over limit samples for copper were retested using the same technique but with assay grade Aqua Regia digestion and a higher range of detection (method ME-OG46). Quality assurance and control (QAQC) is maintained at the lab through rigorous use of internal standards, blanks and duplicates. An additional QAQC program was administered by Triumph Gold: at minimum one in ten samples submitted by Triumph Gold was a blank or certified reference standard. QAQC samples that returned unacceptable values triggered investigations into the results and reanalyses of the samples that were tested in the batch with the failed QAQC sample.

Triumph Gold TSXV.TIG commenced a 13,000 metre diamond drill program at its road accessible Freegold Mountain project in the Dawson Range, Yukon. The program will test several new drill targets identified during 2016 field exploration and data review. The 2016 work focused on identifying geological controls on mineralization at the Revenue and Nucleus porphyry deposits on the Freegold Mountain Property. These studies recognized an early stage of porphyry-style mineralization that was not targeted during past exploration. The work defined three new exploration targets, one each at Revenue and Nucleus, and a newly identified porphyry target at the Generation Zone.

Triumph intends to execute a $4 million exploration program on the Freegold Mountain property, as well as smaller reconnaissance mapping and sampling projects on Tad/Toro and Severance properties in Yukon and Andalusite Peak in northern British Columbia.
Exploration on the Freegold Mountain property will commence in late May and extend until early October. The work will include approximately 13,000 m of diamond drilling, seven line km of trenching, geological mapping, prospecting and a soil geochemistry survey.
Drilling will be focused on four areas:
Drilling at the Nucleus and Revenue deposit areas will constitute significant step outs, up to 1.5 km from the current resource areas, to test new exploration targets developed during a thorough data and drill core review conducted in 2016.
Exploration at the property’s third resource area, the Tinta polymetallic vein deposit, will include broadening of the existing soil geochemistry survey area with approximately 1,200 samples over 7 km2. This will complement the ground magnetic and VLF-EM survey that was conducted in 2016, which defined several strong conductors that parallel the Tinta vein deposit and are coincident with Au, Ag, Pb, Bi in soil anomalies over the limited existing soil grid. Once results are obtained, trenching will be conducted over coincident anomalies.
A number of less developed prospects on the Freegold Mountain property, including the Nitro, Castle, and Stoddart porphyry prospects and Goldy, Ridge, and Irene epithermal gold prospects, will be the subject of focused data, drill core, and field studies/reviews by Triumph’s senior geologists in order to evaluate exploration potential.

Pistol Bay expanded the upcoming VTEM airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey to cover almost twice the area of the original survey plan. Geotech Limited is contracted to survey the 40 km length of the Confederation Lake greenstone belt, southeast of Red Lake, Ontario.
With a larger loop, more power and better signal-to-noise resolution than earlier airborne electromagnetic systems, the current version of VTEM™, known as VTEM™ Plus, is able to resolve conductors at significantly greater depths than any previous airborne system. By flying a survey over large areas of favourable geology, Pistol Bay will be exploring a depth slice that has only been investigated in the past by large-loop ground EM systems over very limited areas. Target definition will be materially assisted by two recently acquired data sets. A whole-rock geochemical database with almost 7,000 analyses was inherited from Noranda Exploration by AurCrest Gold Inc. and delivered to Pistol Bay as part of the AurCrest Gold property acquisition (see Pistol Bay news release January 18, 2017). As well, a data set of Selco drill results, many of which were never in the public domain was supplied by the vendor of the Joy North property (see Pistol Bay news release February 22, 2017).
Pistol Bay $PST has contracted Geotech Ltd to carry out a 1,128 line-km helicopter-borne survey of the central part of the Company’s land position in Ontario. The survey will use Geotech’s Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM Plus) system, which includes a horizontal magnetic gradiometer.
Pistol Bay anticipates that this survey will explore the survey area to a significantly greater depth than previous airborne surveys, the last of which was done 20 years ago.
