(businesspress24) -
Vancouver, British Columbia - FIORE GOLD LTD. (TSXV: F) (OTCQB: FIOGF) (Fiore or the Company - is pleased to report additional results from the ongoing drilling program at its Gold Rock project in Nevada (Figure 1). These latest results continue to demonstrate strong intervals of oxide gold mineralization both within and outside of the current resource pit shells. We view this as encouraging in our efforts to upgrade Inferred resources and expand the overall resource envelope as part of the ongoing Feasibility Study (FS) of the federally permitted Gold Rock project.

Highlights from the twenty-nine holes reported here include:

- 15.2 m of 1.14 g/t gold and 18.29 m of 0.84 g/t gold in hole GR20-069
- 19.8 m of 1.33 g/t gold in hole GR20-076
- 12.2 m of 1.61 g/t gold in hole GR20-079
- 12.2 m of 1.75 g/t gold in hole GR20-081
- 27.4 m of 0.46 g/t gold in hole GR20-097

In the central part of the deposit (cross-section 1, Figure 2) hole GR20-069 intercepted 15.2 metres of 1.14 g/t gold and 18.3 metres of 0.84 g/t gold, hole GR20-099 intercepted 16.8 metres of 0.71 g/t gold, and GR20-097 intercepted 27.4 metres of 0.46 g/t gold, all from areas near the base of the current northern pit shell from the 2020 Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA). Hole GR20-069 also intercepted 32.0 metres of 0.37 g/t gold below the base of the current design pit shell.

Cross-section 2 (Figure 3) is located in the southern part of the deposit and shows stronger mineralization in the eastern limb of the Easy Junior anticline. Intercepts included 10.7 metres of 0.96 g/t gold in GR20-071, 19.8 metres of 1.33 g/t gold in GR20-0076 and 12.2 metres of 1.61 g/t gold in GR20-079. Mineralization in this area remains open to the east.

Tim Warman, Fiores CEO stated, These holes reported today are primarily infill holes targeting gaps in the existing resource. The results are consistent with previous drilling and continue to show strong, continuous mineralization and excellent opportunities to expand the current resource envelope going into the Feasibility Study. Work on the FS is progressing well: logging of the large diameter metallurgical core holes and the HQ core holes is underway and should move even faster once our new core logging facility is complete in the coming weeks. We are also looking forward to results from several exploration holes drilled at the Jasperoid Creek target approximately 1.05 miles (1.7 km) north of the former Easy Junior pit (Figure 1).

Complete results for the twenty-nine holes referenced in this press release are shown in the table below.

Assay highlights are calculated with a cutoff of 0.006 opt (0.20 g/t) Au. Highlighted intervals contain less than 10 feet (3 m) of material below cutoff grade.

The holes from the current program, including those in this release, are all reverse circulation (RC) holes and represent 66,390 feet (20,236 m) of a drilling program consisting of a mix of HQ and PQ diamond core holes as well as RC and sonic holes. Total planned footage for the drilling program to support the FS will be approximately 198,000 ft (60,000 m), with approximately 115,000 ft (35,000 m) focused on resource expansion to add Measured and Indicated resources for inclusion in the FS.

Gold Rock Project and PEA Highlights

The federally permitted Gold Rock gold project ("Gold Rock", or the "Project) is located approximately 8 miles southeast of the Pan Mine in White Pine County, Nevada. The recently released Gold Rock Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) provides an updated mineral resource estimate and a base case assessment of developing the Project as a satellite open pit operation that will share significant infrastructure and management with the adjacent Pan Mine. The PEA also identifies a considerable number of opportunities to enhance the project economics as Gold Rock advances to the Feasibility stage by drilling to increase the mineral resource, further metallurgical testing aimed at optimizing recoveries, and geotechnical drilling aimed at reducing the stripping ratio. Further updates will be provided as we progress work in these areas. The PEA was prepared in accordance with Canadian Securities Administrators'' National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101). A Technical Report with the details of the PEA is available on SEDAR under the Company''s profile.

Gold Rock Mineral Resource Estimate

The Company''s updated Gold Rock Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE"; effective date of March 31, 2020) was completed by APEX and forms the basis for the PEA. A summary of the MRE is highlighted in the table below.

Pit-Constrained Mineral Resource Summary
Resource Cut-off Tons/TonneGold Gold Ounces
Classificati opt/gpt s opt/gpt

Total 0.003/0.09 20.9/19.0 0.019/0.66 403,000

Total 0.003/0.09 3.0 /2.7 0.025/0.87 84,300
Key Assumptions, Parameters, and Methods related to the Mineral Resource Estimates:
1. Mineral Resources were prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 and the CIM Definition Standards (2014). Mineral Resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
2. Troy ounces per short ton (opt) / grams per tonne (gpt)
3. This estimate of Mineral Resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing, or other relevant issues.
4. Open pit Mineral Resources are reported at a cut-off grade of 0.003 opt/0.09 gpt gold that is based on a gold price of US$1,500/oz. A revenue price of US$1,400 is used for the base case economic model.
5. The Mineral Resources are constrained by a pit shell with appropriate mining costs, processing costs, metal recoveries, and pit slope angles.
6. Rounding may result in apparent summation differences between tonnes, grade, and contained metal content.
7. Contained gold ounces are in troy ounces.
