The seventy-six holes reported here were drilled at several locations around the main North Pan pit, as well as one hole near the smaller Syncline satellite pit (Figure 1). The holes were aimed at expanding the existing oxide resources and reserves both at depth and laterally beyond the current reserve boundaries. In total, 183 holes for a total of 21,741 m (71,330 ft) were drilled as part of the 2019-2020 Pan resource expansion program and all but the last few of these holes will be incorporated in the upcoming resource and reserve estimate. The most recent Proven and Probable reserve estimate from 2018 shows 275,600 gold ounces at an average grade of 0.51 g/t gold (0.015 oz/ton), with reserve cutoff grades of 0.21 g/t gold for the North and satellite pits and 0.14 g/t gold for the South Pit.

Highlights from these seventy-six holes, all from the North Pan area, include:

Hole PR20-089 returned 8 metres of 0.40 g/t gold

Hole PR20-092 returned 8 metres of 1.03 g/t gold

Hole PR20-095 returned 9 metres of 0.43 g/t gold

Hole PR20-121 returned 0 metres of 0.53 g/t gold

Hole PR20-132 returned 6 metres of 0.60 g/t gold

Hole PR20-137 returned 5 metres of 0.50g/t gold

Hole PR20-147 returned 1 metres of 0.49 g/t gold

Hole PR20-151 returned 4 metres of 0.65 g/t gold

Tim Warman, Fiore?s CEO commented, ?These holes represent the last of the 140 holes drilled in late 2019 and early 2020 as part of a resource expansion program, and all but the last few of these holes will be included in the resource and reserve update which we expect to complete before the end of September. The updated model will incorporate several previously unrecognized structures that appear to localize higher-grade zones of gold mineralization. These structures were recognized during detailed geological mapping in and around the North and South pits and have been successfully targeted during this most recent round of drilling. Our geological team is already planning the next phase of drilling at Pan which is intended to continue expanding the resource base, test new targets away from the existing pits, and collect PQ core for confirmatory metallurgical testing in the newly identified areas of mineralization.?

An initial eight-hole program (PR20-072 to -079) at the Mustang target, located approximately 1,500 m northwest of the Pan North pit, encountered gold mineralization within a low angle structure at the contact between the Pilot shale and the underlying Devils Gate limestone. Five of the eight holes encountered significant gold mineralization, with the best intercepts in PR20-073 with 13.7 m at 0.48 g/t gold and PR20-074 with 10.7 m at 0.62 g/t gold.


Significant results for the seventy-six holes reported here are shown in the table below. The holes in numeric sequence not shown in the table below were condemnation holes drilled in support of a waste dump expansion:

Figure 2 (cross-section 1) is an southwest to northeast cross-section through the North Pan area that highlights a new zone of thick, shallow gold mineralization centred on the Pilot Shale-Devils Gate Limestone contact that was intersected in a zone between holes PR20-081 and PR20-107. This mineralization is well outside the existing pit-constrained reserve envelope and offers potential to add to the existing resource and reserve base at a relatively low stripping ratio. This cross-section also shows several thick intersections immediately below and between the current North Pan and Red Hill pits.

Figure 3 (cross-section 2) is an east-west section in the same general area as Figure 2, which highlights additional intercepts of oxide gold mineralization at the Pilot-Devils Gate contact below the current reserve pits in holes PR20-67, -150 and -051.

Figure 4 (long-section 3) is an approximately north-south oriented long-section through the North Pit area that highlights newly discovered areas of mineralized Jasperoid breccia north of the North Pit (holes PR20-121 and -147 particularly), as well as another thick zone of strong mineralized along the Pilot-Devil?s Gate contact at the south end of the North Pit, that extends well below the base of the current reserve pit (PR20-095, -134 and -135)

Pan Mine Geology

The Pan Mine is a Carlin-style, sedimentary rock-hosted, gold-only deposit, and is comprised of three main zones of mineralization which has currently been traced for over 1,800 m (6,000 feet) along the north-south trending Branham Fault. The North Zone is composed of a large body of silicified solution breccia along the western margin of the Branham fault. Mineralization extends westward from the breccia body along the relatively flat-lying Pilot Shale-Devils Gate Limestone contact. South Pan is largely hosted in strongly clay altered and mineralized solution breccias within the Branham fault zone, and clay altered sediments along the Pilot Shale-Devils Gate Limestone contact which dip to the southeast away from the Branham Fault.

Technical Disclosure

The scientific and technical information relating to Fiore Gold?s properties contained in this news release was approved by Paul Noland (AIPG CPG-11293), Fiore Gold?s VP Exploration and a "Qualified Person" under National Instrument 43-101.

The reverse circulation (RC) drilling at Pan was performed by Boart Longyear of Salt Lake City, Utah.l and drill intersections are reported as drilled thicknesses. The irregular shape of the ore body at Pan make estimations of apparent widths difficult, but true widths are generally within 60% to 90% of the reported downhole intercepts.

Sampling is supervised by Fiore Gold geologists, with samples transported directly to ALS Minerals Lab in Reno, Nevada where samples are prepared, and pulps generated. Samples were assayed for gold by Fire Assay of a 30-gram (1 assay ton) charge with an AA finish, or if over 5.0 g/t were re-assayed and completed with a gravimetric finish. For these samples, the gravimetric data were utilized in calculating gold intersections. All drill samples were also subjected to additional cyanide leach analysis where the sample is treated with a 0.25% NaCN solution and rolled for an hour. An aliquot of the final leach solution is then centrifuged and analyzed by Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy.S. ALS Geochemistry-Reno is ISO 17025:2005 Accredited.

continue to grow gold production at the Pan Mine, while increasing the resource and reserve base

advance the development of the nearby Gold Rock project

acquire additional production or near-production assets to complement our existing operations
