Fremont Gold Provides an Overview of 2019 and Its Plans for 2020

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 6, 2020) - Fremont Gold Ltd. (TSXV: FRE) (FSE: FR2) (OTC Pink: USTDF) ("Fremont" or the "Company") is pleased to provide shareholders with an overview of 2019 and the Company's plans for 2020.

Fremont made the following announcements at the end of 2018 and in 2019:

"2019 was a year of transition for Fremont," said Blaine Monaghan, CEO of Fremont. "Following disappointing drill results from the Gold Bar project, the Company made the strategic decision to exit the Gold Bar camp and monetize any related projects, which was accomplished by the sale of Gold Canyon to McEwen Mining Inc. This prompted a search for new gold projects to augment its remaining property portfolio. The Company's search criteria focused on advanced-stage gold projects with the potential to host an economic deposit with a minimum of 1.0 million ounces of gold in the Western United States. Fremont looked at dozens of gold projects and conducted numerous site visits. Cobb was the first acquisition meeting the Company's search criteria and Griffon was the second. Both properties were acquired in the latter part of 2019.

By adding Cobb and Griffon to its existing property portfolio, which includes the highly prospective North Carlin project, Fremont has built an exceptional portfolio of brownfield and greenfield gold projects located within Nevada's most prolific gold trends. Fremont looks forward to advancing this portfolio in 2020 with the goal of making a new discovery."

The historical mineral resource estimate ("Historical Estimate") was performed by and reported in a technical report prepared by Michael R. Pawlowski for Stacatto Gold Resources Ltd. and dated October 30, 20041. The Historical Estimate is based on a total of 72 drill holes with continuous zones of gold assays above 0.01 opt gold that could be reasonably interpreted to be continuous in three dimensions based on the construction of nine cross sections, 200 feet apart. The methodology employed in the Historical Estimate is detailed in the 2004 technical report by Pawlowski2. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimate as a current mineral resource or mineral reserve and Fremont is not treating the Historical Estimate as a current mineral resource or mineral reserve. In order to consider the Historical Estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves, Fremont needs to retain a qualified person to verify historical drilling and assaying methods and validate historical results, add any drilling and assaying or other pertinent geological information generated since the last estimation, and complete an updated resource estimate and a new technical report.
