Chris Bradbrook, President and CEO of Superior Gold stated: "We are pleased with our second quarter production results where the underground operational improvements, which commenced in the first quarter of the year, resulted in a 21% increase in stoping tonnage and a 20% higher stoping grade relative to the first quarter. As previously articulated, the focus continues to be on underground operations as mining at Hermes concluded during the quarter, with surface stockpile material being processed for the remainder of the year.

Total quarterly production increased 6% relative to the prior quarter. The cash balance increased relative to the first quarter to $17.3 million. We remain focused on increasing stope grade, quarterly production and cash balance for the remainder of the year.

Our production guidance for the full year remains unchanged at between 92,000 ounces to 105,000 ounces of gold from the Plutonic Gold operations."

The Company will be releasing complete financial and operating results for the second quarter before market open on August 14, 2019.
