(PresseBox) - Maple Gold Mines Ltd. (?Maple Gold? or the ?Company?) (TSX-V: MGM, OTCQB: MGMLF; Frankfurt: M3G - is pleased to report additional drill results from the western half of the Porphyry Zone within the current Resource Area at the Douay Property. Within this area (see Figure 1) a total of eight (8) infill and step-out holes were drilled in 2018, with assays pending for the westernmost hole of these only. Both geological observations and assay results for these new holes show good continuity of mineralization in this area, with several higher grade intervals, within a syenite dyke or dyke swarm in the hanging wall of one of the Casa Berardi Faults (see Figure 2).

DO-18-229 cut several mineralized zones, including 0m of 1.90 g/t Au, 8.5m of 3.80 g/t Au (uncapped) and 5.5m of 1.94 g/t Au, all of which form part of a broader envelope of lower-grade halo mineralization which extends to surface in historical hole D-92-07 (see Figure 2A).

DO-18-234 cut several mineralized zones, including an upper zone in basalt with 7.0m grading 1.47 g/t Au and a lower zone in syenite with 27.9m grading 0.66 g/t Au. The latter extends to surface in historical hole DO-05-02 (see Figure 2B)

DO-18-230 also cut multiple mineralized zones, including an upper zone in basalt with 8m grading 1.25 g/t Au and a lower zone in syenite with 24.0m grading 0.75 g/t Au, including 7.0m grading 1.17 g/t Au. These zones also extend to surface in holes DO-12-97 and 70586-0, respectively (see Figure 2C)

In addition to the highlights mentioned above, several other drill-holes successfully confirmed both lateral and vertical continuity of mineralization (see Table 1: Highlighted Drill-Results to-date from the Western Portion of the Porphyry Zone, below).

Maple Gold?s President and CEO, Matthew Hornor, stated: ?Infill and step-out drilling has successfully confirmed down-dip extensions of existing mineralized zones in the main Porphyry Zone. Further drill results are expected in the coming weeks from the Nika Zone, the eastern half of the Porphyry Zone and also from new greenfields drilling to the NE and NW of the Resource Area.?

(Newly reported drill-holes shaded grey)

Intervals given are all down-the hole lengths, which are estimated to be approximately 90% of true width. Coordinates are NAD83 Zone 17N. All assays were performed by ALS Laboratories by AU-ICP21, i.e. 30 g fire assay with ICP finish with any over limits (>10 g/t Au) redone by AU-GRA21, i.e. gravimetric analysis of 30g sample weight. Nominal cut-off to obtain intercepts is 0.25 g/t Au, but depending on grade distribution effective cut-offs can be somewhat higher or lower. All intercepts are uncapped, those identified with (*) include samples with overlimits (>10 g/t Au); which may be subject to grade capping during future resource estimation.

2018 drilling in the western half of the Porphyry Zone shows a broad (90-130m true width) halo of gold mineralization, extending several hundred meters along strike and mainly hosted in syenites (see Figures 1,2) within which higher grade (>1 g/t Au) intervals are found. In some cases the lower portion of the halo has the best grades (e.g. DO-18-229 shown in Figure 2A), in others the upper portion (DO-18-230 shown in Figure 2C). Narrow high grade structures are also found in basaltic wallrocks (Figure 2B).

The scientific and technical data contained in this press release was reviewed and prepared under the supervision of Fred Speidel, M. Sc, P. Geo., Vice-President Exploration, of Maple Gold.
