Trojan Gold Inc. Announces the Signing of a Joint Venture Agreement in Conjunction with its Acquisition of a 50% Interest in the Hemlo South Property

22 January, 2021

TORONTO, ON, January 22, 2021 – Trojan Gold Inc. (“TGI” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Joint Venture Agreement with Tashota Resources Inc. (“TRI”) in which TRI grants the Company a 50% Participating Interest in the Hemlo South Property(the “Project”) located in the Hemlo Gold Camp situated in Northwestern Ontario. This agreement was contemplated in a previously announced MOU between the companies. One significant change from the MOU is that TGI was appointed Manager with overall managerial responsibility for all aspects of Operations conducted on the Project (it was originally intended that the parties would jointly manage the Project).

The Project is 350 km east of Thunder Bay and 36 km east of Marathon, Ontario right off the Trans-Canada Highway in the Hemlo Gold Camp and there is all-season access to the property. The Project is adjacent to Barrick’s Hemlo property and is approximately 1,200 metres from the Williams open pit and underground mine. For reference, the Hemlo Gold camp has produced some 21 million oz gold over the past 30 years and is still producing today.

During May-July 2020, limited prospecting and a Mobile Ion Geochemistry (MIG) Soil Orientation Survey were performed on the Hemlo South property for the purpose of identifying potential drill targets and the resulting report was submitted to the Company in September 2020. The report concluded that the prospecting was successful in locating at least three sheared, pyritic horizons. Moreover, the soil geochemistry was very successful in that several strong gold and/or silver anomalies were obtained in three areas, all in the eastern part of the property and one on the west side. Consequently, further investigation and prospecting was recommended.

Charles Elbourne, President and CEO of the Company stated: “The acquisition of the 50% interest in Hemlo South and the resulting joint venture agreement with Tashota Resources Inc. represents a significant enhancement in the value of the Company for its shareholders; particularly in light of the recently conducted prospecting and MIG survey and the Project’s proximity to the historically productive Barrick property.
