UrbanGold Completes Drilling in the Troilus Area and Modifies Terms of Recently Announced Private Placement
Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 21, 2019) - UrbanGold Minerals Inc. (TSXV: UGM) ("UrbanGold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed its first phase of diamond core drilling on its Troilus area properties (the "Property") with a total of 3,562 metres. 2,537 samples were taken from the drill core and are currently at the laboratories in Val d'Or pending assaying.
The drill program focused on three different portions of the Property. 14 holes totalling 2,005 metres were completed on the Argonaut Gold ("Argonaut") ground, on which UrbanGold entered into an earn-in agreement (see September 13, 2019 news release). The program focused on potential extensions of historical mineralized zones, with a few holes aiming to verify historical intersections so they can be used for a potential future resource calculation under National Instrument ("NI") 43-101 guidelines. A list of select historical occurrences is shown in table 1 below.

Another portion of the program focused on UrbanGold's Bullseye block which surrounds the Argonaut claims. Nine holes totalling 1,164 metres targeted induced polarization anomalies, some of which were associated with mineralization discovered at surface during the summer program.
The third area of interest drilled was the Larabel block located in the northeastern portion of the Property. The summer exploration program uncovered a new gold occurrence in a favorable area, in geological context similar to the Troilus Mine mineralization. Three holes totalling 393 metres were completed on this portion of the property. Please refer to the September 26, 2019 news release regarding the surface sampling discoveries.
All assays are pending, and preparations are underway for a winter drill program which will follow-up on the fall drill results with deeper drilling, and target specific areas that could not be accessed this season due to terrain conditions.
