Highlights of the drilling include an intersection of 30.67 g/t Au over 1.1 metres from 208.85 metres that included 99.31 g/t Au over 0. 3 metres in Hole K-22-190 from the north end of Big Vein. The intersection is approximately 75 metres north of the discovery outcrop and is downdip of Hole K-22-177 that intersected the longest interval yet of 2.02g/t Au over 32m (see news release dated October 7, 2022). Also at Big Vein, Hole K-22-194 intersected 1.27 g/t Au over 6.17 metres from 115 metres that included 2.3 g/t Au over 3m. At Big Vein Southwest, Hole K-22-184 intersected 4.67 g/t over 1.64m from 336.25m that included 8.97 g/t over 0.75m.

“We continue to have drilling success at the north end of Big Vein where several significant intercepts have now been received, including 6.07 g/t Au over 19m in hole K-21-111 and 2.02 g/t over 32m in Hole K-22-177 and now 30.67g/t Au in Hole K-22-190,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO. “The down dip mineralization in K-22-190 shows the high-grade prospectivity of this area which we are currently following up. Big Vein has been drilled over a strike length of approximately 520 metres and remains open both to the northeast and southwest. Two drill rigs are currently drilling at Big Vein to test for extensions of the mineralization in both directions.”

TORONTO, Aug. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assays from six samples containing visible gold recently collected during prospecting in the Golden Glove area at its 100% owned Kingsway Project. The samples were collected as part of the Company’s continuous efforts to generate and upgrade targets for drilling along the 12km strike length of the Appleton Fault Zone covered by the Kingsway Property.

The samples were taken from quartz veins believed to be splays off the original Golden Glove vein. Assays of the six samples ranged from 7.51 g/t to 479.51 g/t Au. The quartz veins are hosted by grey and black shales and are typically vuggy and locally stylolitic with iron carbonate alteration. The four highest grade samples contain visible gold, and all samples contain between 2 and 5% pyrite and arsenopyrite both in the vein and along the contact with the shale wallrock. These results are comparable to assays from the initial samples taken at Golden Glove that ranged from 2.99 to 338.08g/t Au (see news release dated September 21, 2021).

“The discovery of more veins containing high-grade gold at surface is encouraging as it gives us additional information on the structural context of the mineralization at Golden Glove and will allow more efficient drill targeting.” said Roger Moss, President and CEO. “Drilling to date has been following up recent high-grade intersections of 20.07 g/t Au over 1m in Hole K-22-154 and 6.22 g/t Au over 4m in hole K-22-150 located approximately 160m south of the discovery outcrop. Given the high-grade nature of these veins we will certainly look to specifically target them in our ongoing drilling at Golden Glove.”

All samples are securely stored prior to shipping to Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland for assay. Eastern Analytical is an ISO/IEC17025 accredited laboratory. Samples were assayed by metallic screen/fire assay. The whole sample is crushed to -10mesh and pulverized to 95% -150mesh. The total sample is then weighed and screened through 150mesh. Both the +150mesh fraction and a 30g subsample of the -150mesh fraction are fire assayed for Au and a calculated weighted average of total Au in the sample is reported. The company routinely submits blanks and certified reference standards at a rate of approximately 5% of the total samples in each batch.

Labrador Gold Raises $3.88 Million From Exercise of Share Purchase Warrants

Labrador Gold, Proven and Probable

TORONTO, June 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has raised $3,885,285.90 from the recent exercise of share purchase warrants (the “warrants”) with a strike price of $0.175 and $0.30. The warrant exercise increases the Company’s cash position to $26.5 million. Management and directors of Labrador Gold were among those exercising warrants.

“The funds brought in by the exercise of the warrants adds to an already robust treasury and allows us to continue our ongoing exploration of the 12km strike length of the Appleton Fault Zone at our 100% owned Kingsway Project,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO. “The hard work of the LabGold team over the past two years has resulted in the generation and successful drilling of four out of four gold targets. This demonstrates both the ability of our people on the ground as well as the prospectivity of the Kingsway project, and the Appleton Fault Zone in particular. We look forward to another exciting summer of discovery as we prove up more targets in the pipeline and get them ready for drilling.”

Exploration Update

Drilling continues at Kingsway with four drill rigs. Two rigs are working at Big Vein, one testing the down plunge extension of the high-grade HTC Zone below 250m, and the other testing the southwest extension of the Big Vein Zone. A third rig continues to test the Golden Glove target while the fourth rig tests the CSAMT target approximately eight kilometres northeast of Big Vein. The CSAMT target was generated from geophysical (controlled source audio magnetotellurics, magnetics and VLF-EM) and geochemical (gold in soil, rock and till) anomalies and is in an area of structural complexity. Both the Golden Glove and CSAMT targets occur on the east side of the Appleton Fault Zone. Approximately 44% of the 100,000 metre planned program has been completed to date.

Labrador Gold Intersects 6.22 G/T Gold Over 4 Metres in First Hole at Golden Glove Including 10.31 G/T Over 2 Metres

TORONTO, June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from seven drill holes, including the first hole drilled at the Golden Glove Target in the south end of its 100% owned Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre drill program at Kingsway.

Hole K-22-150 intersected 6.22 g/t Au over 4 metres that included 10.31 g/t Au over 2m at a vertical depth of 246 metres. This intersection is located approximately 160 m south of the Golden Glove discovery outcrop where six grab samples, three of which contained visible gold, assayed between 2.99 g/t and 338.1 g/t Au (see news release dated September 21, 2021). This intersection at Golden Glove is the fourth of four targets drilled by LabGold to return significant gold intercepts.

While there are many similarities between the mineralization observed at Golden Glove and that at Big Vein, a significant difference is that while Big Vein occurs on the west side of the Appleton Fault Zone, Golden Glove is situated on the East Side. This is the first drilling on the east side of the fault at the Kingsway Property.https://embed.fireplace.yahoo.com/embed?ctrl=Monalixa&m_id=monalixa&m_mode=document&site=sports&os=android&pageContext=%257B%2522ctopid%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522hashtag%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522wiki_topics%2522%253A%2522Labrador%253BFault_(geology)%253BGold%2522%252C%2522lmsid%2522%253A%2522a0770000002m0AbAAI%2522%252C%2522revsp%2522%253A%2522globenewswire.com%2522%252C%2522lpstaid%2522%253A%252256728853-316a-31bc-a98d-be02627be93e%2522%252C%2522pageContentType%2522%253A%2522story%2522%257D

Six holes drilled at the Pristine target intersected near surface gold mineralization over significant widths in the Doyle Zone, including 1.86 g/t Au over 8m in hole K-22-144 and 1.75 g/t over 20.2m that included 2.76 g/t Au over 6.2m in Hole K-22-139.

“We are very pleased with the results from the first hole drilled at Golden Glove especially considering that the intersection is approximately 160m south of the discovery outcrop. This indicates excellent potential for the area between this hole and the outcrop and we are certainly looking forward to the results from the remaining five holes drilled there to date,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of LabGold. “The continued near surface gold intercepts extending the strike length of the Doyle Zone are nice to see especially those with wider intersections. We are encouraged by the successful drilling of our four initial targets, all of which have delivered significant gold mineralization. We will continue to test the new targets developed along the Appleton Fault Zone through the summer, starting with the CSAMT target approximately eight kilometres northeast of Big Vein.”

QA/QC

True widths of the reported intersections have yet to be calculated. Assays are uncut. Samples of HQ split core are securely stored prior to shipping to Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland for assay. Eastern Analytical is an ISO/IEC17025 accredited laboratory. Samples are routinely analyzed for gold by standard 30g fire assay with atomic absorption finish as well as by ICP-OES for an additional 34 elements. Samples containing visible gold are assayed by metallic screen/fire assay, as are any samples with fire assay results greater than 1g/t Au. The company submits blanks and certified reference standards at a rate of approximately 5% of the total samples in each batch.

Labrador Gold Announces Early Exercise of Option to Earn 100% of the Kingsway Property

Labrador Gold Corp.

TORONTO, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V : LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has exercised its option two years early to earn 100% of the three licenses comprising the Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. The Kingsway project is located in the highly prospective central Newfoundland gold belt.

The Kingsway Property is composed of three licenses 027636M and 027637M which were optioned in March 2020 and 023940M optioned in July 2020. Together these three licenses cover approximately 12km of the Appleton Fault Zone along which prospecting and drilling over the past two years by LabGold and New Found Gold has resulted in the discovery of numerous near-surface high grade gold occurrences. Given the prolific nature of this fault zone and the continued success of the Company’s exploration on the property, the Board agreed to accelerate the option payments to acquire the 100% interest.

“It is clear to us that the Kingsway Property will need sustained exploration over the long term to fully understand its potential. The success we have had in just a year and half spent working in the field speaks to the prospectivity of the Appleton Fault Zone and the remainder of the property in general,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of Labrador Gold. “Acquiring the 100% interest in the property two years earlier than required shows the confidence we have that there is more to come from Kingsway, and we are excited to continue exploring the entire 12km strike length of the Appleton Fault Zone.”

The Company now owns a 100% undivided interest in license 023940M.
The Company also owns a 100% undivided interest in licenses 027636M and 027637M subject to:
A 1.0% Net Smelter Returns royalty plus $1 per ounce of gold in the measured and indicated mineral resource categories established in a National Instrument 43-101 technical report for the development of the Property.
Expenditure target payments of $750,000 for each $10 million in exploration expenditures up to $30 million.

Upcoming Webinar

Labrador Gold is also pleased to announce that President and CEO, Roger Moss, will be providing the latest update from the Kingsway project in a live webinar taking place on Monday, May 16th at 1:00PM PT/ 4:00PM ET. To register for the event please click the link below.

These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre drill program at Kingsway.

At Big Vein, the intercept of 54.17g/t Au over 0.95m in hole K-22-122 contains visible gold and is the furthest intersection of the Big Vein Zone to the southwest drilled to date. This extends the strike length of the zone to 320m and it remains open in this direction. Hole K-22-116 targeted the HTC zone and intersected 14.67 g/t over a 1m interval that also contained visible gold.

At the Pristine target the first six holes all intersected significant near surface gold mineralization, including hole K-21-109 that assayed 3.55 g/t Au over 2.33m from 17.15m that contained visible gold and hole K-21-100 that intersected 3.89 g/t Au over 3m from 53m downhole.

The initial assays from the Pristine target, located approximately 800m northeast of Big Vein along the Appleton Fault Zone, are very similar to the first reported holes from Big Vein that assayed 1.11 g/t Au over 5.50m, 5.0 g/t Au over 0.9m and 2.26 g/t Au over 7.0m in Hole K-21-01 and 1.72 g/t Au over 3.0min Hole K-21-02 (see news release dated May 10, 2021).

The stratigraphy encountered is also very similar to Big Vein, with the mineralized Doyle Zone defined by a network of shear veining that is associated with a highly fractured sandstone in fault contact with a deformed black graphitic shale.

“We are very pleased with the initial results from the Pristine target which proves our interpretation of the existence of a gold occurrence not too far up ice from the pristine gold grains found in till. Pristine is the third of three targets tested to date to show significant near surface gold assays, a result of our systematic exploration strategy at Kingsway and the prospectivity of the Appleton Fault Zone,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of the LabGold. “We have named the mineralized zone at Pristine the Doyle Zone after our friend and strong supporter James Doyle, who passed away suddenly, and much too early, in late 2020. James helped and advised us in every financing since the start of Labrador Gold in 2017, and gave us support in the market, often when no-one else was interested. James would have loved witnessing all the exploration activity in central Newfoundland over the last two years and would have been working the telephones daily. We will endeavour to ensure that the Doyle Zone lives up to the big personality of its namesake.”

Pristine Target and Appleton Fault Zone

The visible gold found in hole K-21-109 drilled into the Doyle Zone is the third occurrence of visible gold found, after Big Vein and Golden Glove, along the Appleton Fault Zone. The Doyle Zone is the furthest northeast, approximately 4.5km from Golden Glove which lies close to the southern property boundary. The Doyle Zone lies to the east of a fault with a major damage zone approximately 30m wide which may represent the expression of the Appleton Fault Zone in this area. Further work is necessary to determine if this is, in fact, the the case or if it is a major splay of the Appleton Fault Zone. In either case it is a significant structure associated with gold mineralization in the Doyle Zone.

The most detailed exploration along the Appleton Fault Zone to date has been over an approximately 2km section from just southwest of Big Vein to the Pristine target, leaving the remaining 10km length of the fault zone relatively underexplored. This will be a major focus of LabGold’s upcoming field program.

QA/QC

True widths of the reported intersections have yet to be calculated. Assays are uncut. Samples of HQ split core are securely stored prior to shipping to Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland for assay. Eastern Analytical is an ISO/IEC17025 accredited laboratory. Samples are routinely analyzed for gold by standard 30g fire assay with atomic absorption finish as well as by ICP-OES for an additional 34 elements. Samples containing visible gold are assayed by metallic screen/fire assay, as are any samples with fire assay results greater than 1g/t Au. The company submits blanks and certified reference standards at a rate of approximately 5% of the total samples in each batch.

About Labrador Gold
Labrador Gold is a Canadian based mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition and exploration of prospective gold projects in Eastern Canada.

In early 2020, Labrador Gold acquired the option to earn a 100% interest in the Kingsway project in the Gander area of Newfoundland. The three licenses comprising the Kingsway project cover approximately 12km of the Appleton Fault Zone which is associated with gold occurrences in the region, including those of New Found Gold immediately to the south of Kingsway. Infrastructure in the area is excellent located just 18km from the town of Gander with road access to the project, nearby electricity and abundant local water. LabGold is drilling a projected 50,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $28 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Florence Lake greenstone belts that stretches over 60 km. The belt is typical of greenstone belts around the world but has been underexplored by comparison. Work to date by Labrador Gold show gold anomalies in rocks, soils and lake sediments over a 3 kilometre section of the northern portion of the Florence Lake greenstone belt in the vicinity of the known Thurber Dog gold showing where grab samples assayed up to 7.8g/t gold. In addition, anomalous gold in soil and lake sediment samples occur over approximately 40 km along the southern section of the greenstone belt (see news release dated January 25 th 2018 for more details). Labrador Gold now controls approximately 40km strike length of the Florence Lake Greenstone Belt.

The Company has 156,439,526 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.
