Meadow Bay Gold Announces Listing of Its Common Shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange and Commissioning of an In-Pit Resource Study At Its Atlanta Gold Mine, Nevada

Tags: Mining

Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / March 1, 2018 - Meadow Bay Gold Corporation ("Meadow Bay Gold" or the "Company") (TSXV:MAY), (OTCQB:MAYGF), (Frankfurt: 20M, WKN A1C3DN), advises that effective at the open on March 2, 2018, the Company's common shares will commence trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange and will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Company also advises that it has engaged Gustavson Associates, LLC, of Boulder, Colorado to prepare an in-pit resource estimate for its flagship Atlanta Gold Mine Project in Lincoln County, Nevada.

The purpose of the in-pit resource estimate is to identify that portion of the larger global resource that could be exploited under current market conditions through open-pit mining. In particular, the area immediately to the west of the historic Atlanta Mine shows exceptional promise. Drilling in 2011 discovered gold mineralization hosted in a quartz latite porphyry in the hanging-wall of the Atlanta Shear Zone. The Atlanta Porphyry is both closer to the surface and softer than the historic mineralization in the shear zone.

A secondary purpose of the in-pit resource is to update the previous resource estimate and include the results of more recent drilling.

"Commissioning an in-pit resource represents a fundamental shift in Meadow Bay's thinking," states Robert Dinning, Chairman and CEO of Meadow Bay Gold. "Although our previous emphasis was on exploration, we feel that the combination of existing infrastructure and a defined resource provides an opportunity to move in a new direction. While we will continue to conduct exploration in Western Knolls and elsewhere in the Atlanta District, our primary goal is to maximize shareholder value by bringing the Atlanta Project toward a timely production decision."

In addition to the in-pit resource estimate, the Company is looking at additional metallurgical testing of the porphyry mineralization, preliminary mine and process plant design, and initial OpEx and CapEx estimations. The goal is to integrate these studies into a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) later in the year.

Charles "Bill" Reed, a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and Director of the Company, has reviewed and approved the contents of this press release.

Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
