Toronto, Ontario – October 15, 2021 – Warrior Gold Inc. (TSX-V - WAR) (“Warrior Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Fall 2021 diamond drill program comprising approximately 3,000 metres (planned 10 holes) has commenced on the Company’s 100%-owned Goodfish-Kirana Property. The drill program has been designed to test for deeper downdip mineralization and along-strike-extension (east and west) targets at the A Zone. As well, drilling is planned to explore a newly identified structural/geophysics-indicated target 650 metres northeast of the A Zone. Danièle Spethmann, President & CEO, stated, “We are really excited to get our fall drill program under way as a follow-up program to our successful Winter 2021 drill campaign which intersected anomalous and high-grade gold in all 12 drill holes of the program (3,066 m). The last program confirmed mineralization at the A Zone to 650 metres along strike, and it remains open at depth. The Warrior Gold team has advanced the geological model identifying additional areas with potential to expand the known mineralization, east, west and at depth. This program will explore for the down plunge extension of the gold mineralization and will also test another newly identified target located 650 metres to the north-east of the A Zone. With the closing of the recent private placement in September, we are well-funded to complete the drill program at the A Zone on the Goodfish-Kirana Property and explore our newly acquired KLC Property, with a high-resolution airborne magnetics and VLF survey.” High-Resolution Airborne Magnetic Survey The Company is planning to complete a 780 line-kilometre triaxial magnetic and VLF survey across the KLC project area. The survey will be completed by GoldSpot Discoveries Corp.’s (“GoldSpot”) new Applied Geophysical Services division. This high-resolution survey is scheduled to commence mid-November over the newly acquired KLC ground. Subject to weather conditions, GoldSpot may utilize their newly developed M-PASS system to co-collect LiDAR and orthophotos in addition to the magnetic and VLF datasets. Corporate Update The Company is pleased to also announce that it will be participating virtually at the Swiss Mining Institute digitally hosted conference November 2 to 4, 2021.
