StrikePoint Gold Inc. Discovers Two-Hundred Meter Polymetallic Vein with Samples Grading up to 876 Grams per Tonne Silver, 10.8 Grams per Tonne Gold and 12.5% Zinc on Glacier Creek Property, Stewart, British Columbia

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 27, 2018) - StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) is pleased to announce significant surface sample results from a polymetallic vein on the Glacier Creek Property. This property is part of the land package with the Porter Project acquired from Skeena Resources in July 2018.

This discovery lies 5.5 kilometers northeast of the historic Porter mine site and 4 kilometers east of Highway 37A. The Glacier Creek Property lies in an area of significant historical importance and hosted several mines during the early 20th Century, including the Dunwell and Black Bear Mines. Its lower elevation and local water supply offer StrikePoint the opportunity for an extended exploration season.

Wide Vein with Massive Sulphides

The new vein was observed along a strike length of 205-meters on the western side of Albany Creek. The vein was observed to be up to 2-meters thick on surface and consisted of brecciated mudstones flushed with quartz and massive sulphides, including pyrite, galena and sphalerite. The vein has a shallow dip of 30 degrees west, and remains open along strike.

A total of 18 surface samples were collected during a prospecting exercise on 22nd September 2018. The following table shows results for all samples collected.

Historical Activity

The discovery lies in the same area as the historical "Ben Bolt" mine that was worked between 1910 and 1912. The site has remained unexplored for the intervening 100 years. The most recent report on the mine was made by Dr. A. C. Skerl in 1955 following a site visit that same year. The report details that 1,600 feet (490 meters) of hand-driven underground workings were excavated in the two years of operation, and that the "whole of the workings are within a large quartz vein that is at least 200 feet (61m) thick".

The Ben Bolt mine lies along a geological trend known as the Portland Canal Fissure Zone, a regional structure with the same trend as the Silverado - Porter - Big Nunatak target zones.

Other historic mines along this trend have also shown significant ore bodies, with the Dunwell Mine perhaps being the most famous, which produced 45,657 tonnes average 14.3 grams per tonne gold equivalent. Drilling by America Creek Resources Ltd. at Dunwell in 2010 indicated a zone at least 300-meters long and 200-meters along dip with a true thickness of 6 to 7 meters.

2019 Drilling Target

The vein at Ben Bolt has never been drilled and as no exploration work has been undertaken since 1912 it represents a major new target for exploration in 2019. The surface strike length remains open to the northwest and the southeast, with approximately 1.6 kilometers of the Portland Canal Fissure Zone continuing to extend to the northern property boundary. The lower elevation and presence of Albany Creek has the potential for extend the exploration season within the entire Porter Project package.

About the Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle is an area of northwestern British Columbia that has seen extensive historic mining and prospecting activity, and has recently been the site of modern discoveries, including the Premier Gold, Snip and Eskay Creek Mines. The area has seen a resurgence in infrastructure investment which supports exploration activities, including upgraded transmission lines supplying clean, affordable and reliable hydroelectric power. Other recent improvements include highway upgrades, new ocean port infrastructure at the ice-free port of Stewart and the commissioning of three hydroelectric facilities.

StrikePoint Gold is a well-financed gold exploration and development company. The company controls a portfolio of gold and silver properties in the Yukon, British Columbia and throughout Canada.

QA/QC

The Company maintains a rigorous QA/QC program with respect to the preparation, shipping, analysis and checking of all samples and data from the properties. Quality control for field sampling and drill samples at the Company's projects covers the complete chain of custody of samples, including sample handling procedures and analytical-related work, plus the insertion of standard and blank materials. The QA/QC program also includes data verification procedures. ALS Laboratories in Vancouver, Canada (ISO 17025:2005 accreditation) assayed all grab samples from the current field program using fire assay and ICP Mass Spectroscopy methods.

The technical information contained in this news release has been approved by Andy Randell, P. Geo., Vice President, Exploration of StrikePoint Gold. Mr. Randell is a qualified person as defined in NI 43-101.

StrikePoint Gold Inc. Discovers Significant New Polymetallic Vein on Surface at the Porter Project with Assays up to 43.6 Ounces per Tonne Silver, 0.54 Ounces per Tonne Gold and 28.8% per Tonne Zinc

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 12, 2018) - StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) is pleased to announce the discovery of a significant new vein at the Porter Project near Stewart, British Columbia.

Significant Step Out from Historic Porter Resource

The new vein has been observed along a 275-meter strike on surface in an area that until the last decade would have been obscured by year-round snow cover. Thirty-two samples were collected from the area which lies approximately 800-meters to the west of the historic Porter resource area, with assays ranging from trace to 43.6 ounces per tonne silver, trace to 0.54 ounces per tonne gold. Significant zinc was also found, from trace to 28.8% per tonne.

StrikePoint CEO Shawn Khunkhun comments: "This is one of the most exciting discoveries following this seasons exploration work as it helps prove the existence of significant, untested mineral veins outside of the historical resource area. Our mandate was to prove upside for the deposit, and this discovery is a major step towards that goal."

New Geological Potential

Samples were collected from a newly exposed shallow dipping quartz breccia vein along a 275-meter strike. Several other 'Flat Veins' have been observed during the summer, including high-grade samples from Silverado and the Porter areas. A preliminary interpretation connects these veins, forming one large structure that circles and cuts through Mount Rainey. The angles the veins dip at suggest that they converge and form a 'bowl' shaped fault that passes under the entire mountain, somewhat like the structures observed at Ascot Gold 'Premier Mine' located 25 kilometers to the northwest. This new 'flat vein' ranges from 30 centimeters to 1 meter in thickness, but the mineralization extends into the brecciated and altered halo around the contact sometimes for several meters.

This structure contrasts with the steeply dipping veins that were historically mined at Porter and Silverado that appear to have formed within fold hinges and shear zones.

The results are also highlighting a potential change in the geochemical potential of the veins, with gold becoming more significant to the west whilst silver dominates to the east.

2019 Drilling Target

This new vein is a significant target for drill testing in 2019. Diamond drilling will also allow exploration of the connecting area that is currently obscured by a shallow 650-meter wide patch of ice, all of which is covered under the existing exploration permit.
