Enforcer Gold Prepares to Drill the OR79 Discovery at the Montalembert Gold Project

TORONTO, Feb. 8, 2018 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --

TSX-V: VEIN | FSE: N071

Enforcer Gold Corp ("Enforcer" or the "Company") (TSX-V: VEIN; FSE: N071) is pleased to announce it has further refined drill targets for its 1,500 m diamond drilling program on the newly discovered OR79 zone at the Company's Montalembert gold project.

President & CEO, Steve Roebuck, comments:

"Based on our early evaluation, OR79 appears to be a new style of mineralization at Montalembert in that there is a clear association of gold mineralization with sulphides in the quartz veining. This is an ideal opportunity to use IP as a geophysical tool for targeting potential mineralization at depth. We're very encouraged by the early results that place coincident high resistivity and chargeability anomalies over the area that returned anomalous gold in both grab and channel samples. Drilling will get started as soon as the rig gets to site."

Due to limited outcrop exposure in the area, Enforcer recently commenced a 20 line-km induced polarization ("IP") geophysical survey to delineate areas of high resistivity and high chargeability, which could potentially correspond with quartz veining and sulphide ± gold mineralization, respectively.

Results to date from the ongoing IP survey indicate a 150 m wide by 250 m long area (currently open to north and south) where anomalous results from outcrop sampling are coincident with both high resistivity and high chargeability anomalies. The zone is transected by a NW-trending linear break as interpreted from both the 2018 IP survey and Enforcer's 2017 airborne MAG and VLF-EM survey. The nature of the linear break is currently unknown but postulated to represent a structural break that may have contributed to the mineralizing event.

The OR79 zone was discovered by prospecting and is located approximately 1.5 km west-southwest of the Galena-No.2 vein area. Gold mineralization is associated with the presence of sulphides in shear-hosted quartz veins within altered mafic and granitic rocks. Grab and channel samples collected from isolated outcrops in the area returned highly anomalous results including 3.72 g/t Au over 0.4 m width (Enforcer press release dated February 6, 2018). Based on the geology the OR79 zone is interpreted as a series of sub-parallel, sulphide-mineralized quartz veins in mafic intrusive +/- volcanic rocks.

Enforcer has contracted Orbit Garant Drilling Inc. of Val d'Or, Quebec for a budgeted 1,500 m of diamond drilling as a first pass test of the area, set to commence shortly.

About Enforcer Gold Corp

Enforcer Gold Corp is earning a 100% interest in the Montalembert gold project from Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. (TSX: GMX, FSE: GIMN, OTCQX: GLBXF) and a 50% interest in the advanced-stage Roger gold-copper porphyry property from SOQUEM. Both properties are located in Quebec's prolific Abitibi greenstone belt. The Montalembert property lies 5 km from a paved highway and hydro-electric power and has easy access to skilled labour, fuel, accommodation and other industry-related services, allowing for relatively low exploration costs.
