This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States of America. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933 (the "1933 Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons (as defined in the 1933 Act) unless registered under the 1933 Act and applicable state securities laws, or an exemption from such registration is available.

2024 Plans

Despite years of major gold production, Nevada continues to produce excellent new gold/silver discoveries with many in areas previously thought to be completely explored or beneath altered rock that does not contain anomalous gold concentrations. Subject to further financing, the Company is planning a 2024 exploration program that will include drilling approximately 2,600 metres in 15 holes at the Highland low-sulfidation-type project. The property consists of 192 Federal lode claims (~1,500 hectares) located within the prolific Walker Lane Gold belt, where large gold/silver discoveries have been made increasingly beneath "barren" surface alteration. Previous drilling by Bravada on the Highland property intersected vein zones with high-grade intercepts, confirming the potentially productive nature of the system. The Company's best hole, H02013, intersected 1.5 meters (m) of 66.9 grams of gold per ton (g/t) and 397.7g/t silver within a 12.2m intercept of 9.5g/t gold and 109.4g/t silver (previously announced, true thicknesses estimated at 65% of the intervals). A thin layer of alluvial gravel covers much of the property and several targets have been identified that have not been previously tested with drilling.

Highland is a large property with multiple "hot spots" of high-grade gold at surface. Widespread samples of float, outcrop, and soils collected at the Big Hammer target, for example, contain anomalous gold and pathfinder geochemistry, with values ranging from 0.1g/t to 1.0/g/t Au, with a maximum of 15g/t Au. Minimal erosion indicates undiscovered high-grade vein deposits will be preserved in their entirety.

Additional geologic mapping, soil sampling, and geophysics are also being planned to refine drill targets on the SF/HC property and the Gabel property, both Carlin-type properties adjacent to new gold discoveries in the Battle Mountain-Eureka Gold belt. Permitting is anticipated after integration of that data with drilling later in 2024.
