Trading Symbol: "EGD: TSX.V"

VANCOUVER, Feb. 27, 2017 /CNW/ - Energold Drilling Corp. (EGD: TSX.V) ("Energold" or "the Company" or "Energold Group") is pleased to announce that it has been named to the 2017 TSX Venture 50, a ranking of the top performers on the TSX Venture Exchange over the last year.

Each year, the ranking showcases TSXV-listed companies that have shown notable results in key measures of market performance.  The companies included in the 2017 TSX Venture 50 were selected based on three equally weighted criteria: market capitalization growth, share price appreciation and trading volume.

Frederick Davidson, President, CEO, and Director of Energold, commented, "Being named to the TSX Venture 50 once again is a testament to the outstanding work by our employees around the world, further it is a sign that the market has turned around for commodities and that our diversified business has weathered the difficult downturns of the last few years.  I would like to congratulate all the other winners this year and we hope to deliver even better performances in 2017 and beyond for our shareholders and stakeholders."

Energold Drilling Corp. is a leading global specialty drilling company that services the mining, energy, water, infrastructure, green and manufacturing sectors in approximately 25 countries.  Specializing in a socially and environmentally sensitive approach to drilling, Energold provides a comprehensive range of drilling services from early stage exploration to onsite operations for metals, energy, geothermal and water in addition to its established drill rig manufacturer, Dando.

On behalf of the Directors of Energold Drilling Corp.,

"Frederick W. Davidson"
President, CEO
