Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 10, 2024) - Scorpio Gold Corporation (TSXV: SGN) ("Scorpio Gold", "Scorpio", or the "Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Charles Funk to its newly formed advisory panel.

Mr. Funk is currently the President and CEO of Heliostar Metals (TSXV: HSTR) which is focussed on advancing its flagship Ana Paula Gold project located in Guerrero, Mexico. Mr Funk is a geophysicist/geologist with over eighteen years experience in exploration, business development and company management for companies including OZ Minerals, Newcrest Mining and Vizsla Silver. Mr. Funk has led or supported multiple deposit discoveries in Mexico and Australia and contributed to over $200 million in capital raises.

"Welcoming Mr. Funk to our advisory panel is a testament to how very fortunate we are in our ability to attract top level talent. His addition significantly enhances our team's capabilities, and we look to leveraging his expertise as we confidently move our projects forward," said Zayn Kalyan, Scorpio's CEO and Director. "Charles' experience with development activities at Ana Paula over the past year strategically aligns with many of the initiatives that Scorpio is making at Manhattan as we work towards filing a NI-43101 compliant resource later this year," furthered Mr. Kalyan.

The establishment of Scorpio's advisory panel is a strategic new initiative to add considerable bench strength to our growing team. Currently, the Company is engaged in discussions with several highly qualified candidates with a proven track record of success in technical and capital market domains. Scorpio plans to leverage the advisory panel's expertise to continue building and enhancing shareholder value as it advances it flagship Manhattan and Mineral Ridge projects, both located along the highly prospective Walker Lane Trend in Nevada, USA.
