Enforcer Gold Corp (“Enforcer” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: VEIN; FSE: N071) is pleased to report initial results from channel sampling on the No.2 vein at the Montalembert Gold Project.
Enforcer has received expedited results for 2 channels to date, including MCH225702, which cut through visible gold in quartz and was reported in the Company’s July 11, 2017 press release. MCH225702 returned 3,310 grams per tonne (g/t) gold over 1.0 m (96.65 oz/ton over 3.28 ft). The second channel, MCH225703, was collected ~20 m to the north and returned 1.93 g/t gold over 1.0 m. A plan map showing the sample locations is available at: Galena-No.2 Plan .

MCH225702 Metallic Sieve Assay: 3,310 g/t Au over 1.0 m
President & CEO, Steve Roebuck, comments:
“We are very encouraged by the early results that demonstrate the continuity of the No. 2 shear zone to the north of the historical exposure limit and to find high-grade pockets of mineralization along the 189m length of the vein that is currently exposed. Diamond drilling has begun at Montalembert and this structure will be fully tested in the weeks ahead.”
The No. 2 vein is a north-south striking and steeply east-dipping shear zone that lies ~80m east of the sub-parallel Galena vein. Prior to the 2017 field program, the No. 2 vein was exposed over a strike length of 89m. Enforcer increased the strike extent of the No. 2 vein exposure by an additional ~100m for an overall current length of ~189m. The shear zone cuts variably chloritized, carbonatized and silicified basalt and feldspar porphyry. The zone hosts semi-continuous quartz veining and minor to 5% pyrite +/- pyrrhotite, trace chalcopyrite and galena and fine to coarse free gold.
Initial channel sampling on the No. 2 vein was limited to higher outcrop exposure while lower sections of the trenched area were being washed and drained. The waterfilled areas have now been fully exposed and sampled. Assay results will be released in a timely manner upon review and compilation.
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 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 .
