(PresseBox) - Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX: AUG, NYSE American: AUG) (?Auryn? or the ?Company? - ) is pleased to announce it has further refined drill targets at the 2017 high-grade Aiviq discovery, the details of its March 2018 planned spring drill program, and additional results from the Committee Bay 2017 summer program.

Ivan Bebek, Executive Chairman of Auryn stated, ?The Aiviq opportunity at Committee Bay not only offers significant discovery potential, it also lies within 12 km of our existing infrastructure at Three Bluffs. As a result, we now have the opportunity to drill Committee Bay both in the spring and summer months.?

Mr. Bebek further stated, ?We are also excited to be currently drilling Huilacollo, the first of 4 highly prospective Peruvian projects. We are making positive headway in the communities around both the Sombrero and Ban?os Del Indio gold projects.

Aiviq Infill Till Results:

The Aiviq discovery drill hole (12.2 meters at 4.7g/t Au) is situated along a 7 kilometer long shear zone that is shedding high-grade boulders and gold-in-tills that was discovered from Auryn?s belt wide regional till survey. Four new high-resolution targets have been defined from infill tills analyzed for gold on 100 meter by 100 meter spacing and will form the basis of Auryn?s follow-up drill program to expand on the Aiviq discovery.

During the 2017 till program, Auryn analyzed indicator elements for gold using portable X-Ray fluorescence technology; however, due to time constraints during the program the till samples were not assayed for areas totaling 3.0 kilometers of strike length (figure 1).

Discovery follow-up drilling around drill hole 17RGR003 will be conducted on 25, 50, and 100- meter step outs covering a total of 350 meters to define a potential deposit footprint.

Michael Henrichsen, COO and Chief Geologist stated, ?We are very excited to begin follow up drilling on our 2017 Aiviq discovery.

Three Bluffs Targeting:

Targeting at the Three Bluffs deposit will be based on the on-going re-log of the deposit to determine the structural controls on high-grade mineralization and geophysical modeling to target the continuation of the high-grade hinge zone of the deposit to the north east (figure 2).

Balance of 2017 Committee Bay Drill Results:

Additional highlights from 2017 exploration RAB drilling include 10.7 meters of 0.62g/t Au from the Mist prospect, 4.6 meters of 1.0g/t Au from the Koffy prospect, and 3.05 meters of 1.73g/t Au from the Kinng Mountain prospect in the NE region of the belt (Figure 3).tills collected during the 2017 summer program to define high-resolution targets.

Michael Henrichsen (Chief Operating Officer), P.Geo is the QP who assumes responsibility for the technical contents of this press release.

Cautionary Statements and Technical Disclosures

Committee Bay Infill Till QA/QC Disclosure

Till samples were collected mostly from active frost boils.recision in a large majority of standards assayed.

Committee Bay RAB Drilling QA/QC Disclosure

Intercepts were calculated using a minimum of a 0.25

Analytical samples were taken using 1/8 of each 5ft (1.52m) interval material (chips) and sent to ALS Lab in Yellowknife, NWT and Vancouver, BC for preparation and then to ALS Lab in Vancouver, BC for analysis. All samples are assayed using 30g nominal weight fire assay with atomic absorption finish (Au-AA25) and multi-element four acid digest ICP-AES/ICP-MS method (ME-MS61). QA/QC programs using internal standard samples, field and lab duplicates and blanks indicate good accuracy and precision in a large majority of standards assayed.

True widths of mineralization are unknown based on current geometric understanding of the mineralized intervals.
