Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 28, 2018) - War Eagle Mining Company Inc. (TSXV: WAR) ("War Eagle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has commenced its exploration program on the Goodfish patented claims of War Eagle's newly acquired Goodfish Kirana Project, located approximately five kilometres north of the centre of the town Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Canada. The Company's exploration program includes 45 km of ground geophysical survey work encompassing magnetics and VLF-EM as well as induced polarization ("IP"), 600 metres of diamond drilling and a 950 km airborne magnetics and VLF-EM survey.

The drill program has been designed to test structures and known gold mineralization drilled in the 1990's by previous owners. As well, the property-wide airborne magnetics-VLF program combined with our LiDAR survey will allow for better prioritization of known targets and definition of new anomalies for further exploration in summer 2018.

"We look forward to the results of our exploration program on the Goodfish patented claims," stated War Eagle President and CEO, Danièle Spethmann, P.Geo., who added, "These results will guide and focus our summer exploration work program which is already in the planning stages."

War Eagle is a TSX Venture Exchange listed company focused on the exploration of mineral resource properties in northern Ontario, Canada, with a focus on gold deposits.  The Company has a significant land position in the Kirkland Lake Gold Camp five kilometres from the center of the Town of Kirkland Lake. The Company's Goodfish Kirana Project is a 10 km long by 3 km wide land package with numerous historical gold showings and significant structural breaks that has been under-explored with modern technology providing for an exciting and unique discovery opportunity.
