Enforcer Gold Releases Metallic Sieve Assay Results for the High-Grade Montalembert Gold Project

TSX-V: VEIN

TORONTO, March 30, 2017 /CNW/ - Enforcer Gold Corp. ("Enforcer Gold" or the "Company") (TSX-V: VEIN, FSE: N071) is pleased to report metallic sieves assay results from the October 2016 channel sampling campaign on the Galena vein and Vein #2.

The assaying process originally employed and reported in press release dated January 20, 2017 was the widely used and industry standard fire assay technique with atomic absorption finish on a 30-gram sample.  Usually, if gold results are greater than 1 gpt (gram per tonne), the laboratory will re-analyze the sample with fire assay and gravimetric finish.  Even if this method is good up to 1,000 g/t gold, it doesn't perform well with high nugget effect as it is often the case at Montalembert.  When visible gold is observed, or when high grade gold is suspected, the metallic sieve method is a preferred assay technique.

Nine samples were selected for re-analysis using metallic sieve techniques. The results are as follows;

Steve Roebuck, CEO of Enforcer Gold Corp states; "We are very encouraged by the results of the samples selected for the metallic sieve analysis technique. Seven of the nine samples increased in grade while two decreased. The most remarkable increase came from sample ID # D110103 which increased from 5.59 gpt gold to 108.21gpt gold, or 1835%. It was very important that we made this discovery now before the summer exploration program commences as we now know that assaying around the high-grade gold Galena vein & Vein #2 needs to include metallic sieve assaying techniques. It is a more expensive process but the higher quality results clearly demonstrate that the additional costs are warranted."

A description of the typical procedure is as follows; metallic sieve is able to overcome the "nugget effect" of gold by increasing the sub-sample size to 1,000g and physically collecting the free gold within the system using a 100-mesh sieve. The subsample is pulverized to ~90% -100 mesh and subsequently sieved through a 100 mesh (106μ) screen. The entire +100 metallic portion is assayed along with two duplicate sub-samples of the -100-pulp portion. Results are reported as a weighted average of gold in the entire sample.

About Enforcer Gold Corp

Enforcer Gold Corp is earning a 100% interest in the 7300-square hectare high-grade Montalembert gold project located west of Chibougamau in Quebec's prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt. The project is very well situated only 5 kilometers from a paved highway, hydro-electric power and with easy access to skilled labour, fuel, food and accommodation it makes exploration costs extremely low.

Two recent channel sample assays from the Galena vein, taken 20 meters apart along strike length, assayed 510.79 gpt Au over 1 meter and 118.79 gpt Au over 1 meter. Enforcer Gold has committed over $2.2M to fund its 2017 exploration program which includes; data compilation, ground and airborne geophysics, stripping of overburden, mapping, prospecting, channel sampling, RC and diamond drilling.
