Monarques Gold Starts Stripping Work on the Gold Bug Showing at the Croinor Gold Project

MQR.V

MONTREAL, July 14, 2016 /CNW/ - MONARQUES GOLD CORPORATION ("Monarques" or the "Corporation") (TSX-V: MQR) (FRANKFURT: MR7) is pleased to report that it has resumed work on its Croinor Gold ("Croinor") project, approximately 70 kilometres east of Val-d'Or, Quebec. Stripping work is presently underway on the Gold Bug showing, and will be ongoing until the end of July.

The Gold Bug showing was discovered by drilling during the intensive 2015 exploration campaign. It is characterized by a different geological environment than that of the Croinor deposit, which lies about 500 metres to the west. Gold Bug is characterized by a complex network of quartz veins in a felsic porphyry intrusive. Three short drilling programs have revealed a complex gold system punctuated by erratic gold values. The best results for the programs were as follows:

*There is currently insufficient information available to determine true widths.

The program now underway is aimed at exposing the bedrock of the Gold Bug showing and providing a better understanding of the geometry of the gold-bearing structures and how they relate to the surrounding structures. It will also locate the extensions of the showing, both laterally and at depth, allowing the holes of the next drilling program to be properly oriented.

"We are very pleased with the developments on the Gold Bug showing," said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer of Monarques. "Given its proximity to the Croinor deposit and the fact that it is very near the surface, the work we are doing now is essential to determining the showing's full potential."

The technical and scientific content of this press release has been reviewed and approved by Donald Trudel, P.Geo., B.Sc., the Corporation's Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
