VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Riley Gold Corp.
(TSX.V: RLYG) (OTCQB: RLYGF) (“Riley Gold” or the “Company”). is
pleased to announce that the Company has significantly increased its land
holdings near and adjacent to the Pipeline West/Clipper Project (“PWC”),
located 80 kilometers (“km”) southwest of Elko, Nevada. This strategic
acquisition includes two claim blocks totaling approximately 3.25 square kms
(1.26 square miles) between the already well-positioned PWC and the Nevada
Gold Mines joint venture (“JV”) (operated by Barrick and Newmont)
boundary, just west of the Gold Acres and Pipeline deposits within the Cortez
complex portion of the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend (Figure 1).

“We were happy to be able to execute agreements that strategically fills the
gap, along strike, between our PWC property boundary and the Gold
Acres/Gap/Pipeline deposits controlled by the Nevada Gold Mines JV. This
property transaction was important in order to enhance Riley Gold’s district
scale land package and cover the west to east extension of the Wenban
geological unit that is known to be the host of gold mineralization in this
district, including gold production at the Nevada Gold Mines JV, Pipeline and
Cortez facilities. An exploration program will be designed to enhance the
known information within the district as well as garnered from previous
historical work, where Riley Gold believes that the Wenban target was not
tested adequately”, commented William Lamb, Executive Chairman of the Board
of Riley Gold.

About the Pipeline West/Clipper Project

PWC constitutes a very prospective, early staged exploration property for
Carlin-type disseminated and replacement gold deposits. The project consists
of a land package now totaling approximately 24.7 square kms (9.5 square
miles) of unpatented mining claims and patented (fee) lands adjacent to
properties controlled by the massive Nevada Gold Mines JV.

PWC lies within the exceptionally productive Cortez trend portion of the
Battle Mountain – Eureka Trend in north central Nevada (Figure 2). The
Cortez section of this trend has a gold endowment of more than 50 million
ounces (past production + current reserves & resources). Several multi-million
ounce past and currently producing gold mines including Pipeline, Cortez
Hills, Fourmile and Goldrush are located southeast of PWC along strike of the
Trend. Northwest of PWC, other large mines along the northern portion of the
Battle Mountain – Eureka Tend include Copper Canyon, Phoenix, Marigold and
Lone Tree.

The principal targets for exploration at PWC include units within the lower
plate of the Roberts Mountains Thrust Fault system, primarily the Devonian
Wenban and Siluro-Devonian Roberts Mountain formations. The Wenban is the
primary host for much of the gold mineralization in the Cortez area. Target
depths to this lower plate unit within PWC are reasonably thought to be within
300 to 600 meters of the surface.

Land Terms Overview:

The Company has entered into two mining lease agreements (“Lease
Agreements”) with multiple land holders (collectively the “Parties”),
whereby the Parties have granted to Riley Gold the exclusive right to 100%
interest in certain unpatented mining claims located in Lander County, Nevada,
for the purposes of exploration, development, and mining of minerals (and all
additional incidental rights and privileges). The Lease Agreements have an
initial term of 10 years (with the option to extend for a second 10-year term)
whereby the Company must incur annual minimum lease payments during the
initial 10-year term totalling US$305,000 and work commitments totalling
US$1,275,000. On the commencement of commercial production, the annual minimum
lease payments shall terminate and be replaced with a 4.0% gross smelter
return royalty (“GSR”) which Riley Gold has the right to buydown to a 2%
GSR at varying amounts adjusted for inflation.
