Enforcer Gold reports 104.68 gpt Au over 2.0 m from channel sampling of No. 2 Vein at the Montalembert Gold Project

TSX-V: VEIN | FSE: N071

TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2017 /CNW/ - Enforcer Gold Corp ("Enforcer" or the "Company") (TSX-V: VEIN; FSE: N071) is pleased to report results from channel sampling on the Galena, No. 2 and No. 3 veins at the Montalembert Gold Project.

The Galena and No. 2 veins are parallel, north-south striking and steeply east-dipping shear zones separated by ~80 m. The No. 3 Vein is located ~175 m south and along strike of the No. 2 Vein. The shear zones vary in width and cut variably chloritized, carbonatized and silicified basalt. They host quartz veins/stringers and trace to 5% pyrite, pyrrhotite, trace chalcopyrite and galena and fine to coarse free gold. Enforcer has been systematically exposing and channel sampling along the strike extensions of the veins and peripheral to the veins.

Of a total 116 sawn channels in the Galena-No.2-No.3 vein area, 27 were infill samples along the Galena Vein, 4 were cut over the trace of the vein in the Galena North extension, 27 were cut over the No. 2 North extension, 8 were cut over the No. 2 South extension and 13 were cut over multiple veins at the No. 3 Vein exposure. On the Galena North exposure, the trace of the vein was lost into deep overburden, hence channel sampling in this area was largely peripheral to the trace of the structure. Significant results from the sampling are presented in Table 1. Plan maps showing sample locations and assay highlights are available on the Montalembert Map Gallery.

Based on Enforcer's preliminary interpretation, gold emplacement at Montalembert is related to late-stage extensional quartz veining that is typically at high angles to the main structures. The Company has engaged a structural expert with SRK Consulting to perform a structural analysis of the vein systems to better determine the nature and controls to gold mineralization. The field study commenced on September 11, 2017. Enforcer anticipates that this study will aid in the targeting of high-grade gold shoots along the vein systems.

As previously noted, the grade and continuity of veining and mineralization in shear-hosted gold deposits in the Abitibi can be highly erratic. The nuggety nature of the gold distribution will remain a challenge and potentially impact sampling results. Enforcer continues to focus on the mineralized structures with the realization that analytical results will be highly variable. The extension of the structures and the presence of high-grade mineralization is the most important factor in the Company's early evaluation of the vein systems.

As announced on August 30, 2017, Enforcer resumed diamond drilling despite a continued backlog of assays at the lab. The situation has yet to change as the Company awaits complete results for the first 10 holes drilled.

President & CEO, Steve Roebuck, comments:

"We continue to be encouraged by the continuity of the shear zones outside of the historical exposure limits and to find high-grade zones of gold mineralization along the length of both veins. We expect that the SRK study will greatly enhance our understanding of the vein systems and focus our exploration moving forward."

Qualified Person & QAQC

Independent geological engineer, Mr. Donald Théberge, MBA, PEng, is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the content of this news release.

Channel samples were collected from bedrock exposures utilizing a diamond-blade power saw. Channel samples are typically cut 2" wide and 2" deep and are cut perpendicular to the strike of the quartz-bearing structures. True width is estimated to be 90-100% of cut width. Sample preparation, fire assays (gravimetric finish) and metallic sieve assays were performed by Activation Laboratories Ltd. of Ancaster, Ontario, an ISO/IEC 17025 (CAN-P-1579) accredited testing laboratory. Details of the analytical procedure and Enforcer's Quality Assurance/Quality Control ("QAQC") program are available on the Enforcer website at: Montalembert QAQC.

About Enforcer Gold Corp
