Golden Summit Update:
Drilling is continuing at Golden Summit, and with the approval of the conversion resolution for the subscription receipts by the disinterested Shareholders, this now will permit the Company to aggressively move forward on the Golden Summit Project. A second drill rig has been added and plans are underway for the addition of a third rig in the next several weeks Drilling will continue to focus on both expanding the existing resource and to define the orientation of the higher grade zone intersected in GSDL2001.
Kristina Walcott, President and CEO stated “We would like to thank our Shareholders for their continued support, and are looking forward to expanding our current exploration program at Golden Summit. The results from holes GSDL2001 and GS2002 have successfully demonstrated the ability to both expand and to potentially define a higher-grade component to the existing resource”.

Some statements in this news release contain forward-looking information, including without limitation statements as to planned expenditures and exploration programs. These statements address future events and conditions and, as such, involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the statements. Such factors include without limitation the completion of planned expenditures, the conversion of outstanding subscription receipts and the release of escrowed funds, the ability to complete exploration programs on schedule and the success of exploration programs. The term “Mineral Resource” used above is defined per NI 43-101. Though Indicated Resources have been estimated for the Project, this PEA includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are too speculative for use in defining Reserves. Standalone economics have not been undertaken for the measured and indicated resources and as such no reserves have been estimated for the Project. Please note that the PEA is preliminary in nature, that it includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would allow them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is no certainty that the PEA will be realized. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Without limitation, statements regarding potential mineralization and resources, exploration results, and future plans and objectives of the Company are forward looking statements that involve various risks. Actual results could differ materially from those projected as a result of the following factors, among others: changes in the price of mineral market conditions, risks inherent in mineral exploration, risks associated with development, construction and mining operations, the uncertainty of future profitability and uncertainty of access to additional capital. See Freegold’s Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31st, 2019 filed under Freegold’s profile at www.sedar.com for a detailed discussion of the risk factors associated with Freegold’s operations.
