ST. JAMES GOLD CORP. ANNOUNCES SECURES AND PAYS DEPOSITS TO AN ESTABLISHED DRILL CONTRACTOR TO COMPLETE 7,000 METERS OF HQ-NQ2-NQ DIAMETER DIAMOND DRILLING AT FLORIN GOLD PROJECT, YUKON CANADA

Vancouver, British Columbia, June 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — St. James Gold Corp. (TSXV: LORD) (OTCQB: LRDJF) (FSE: BVU3),( the “Company” or “St. James Gold”) is pleased to announce that its Operator at the Florin Gold Project (as defined below), has assisted in securing and paying deposits to an established drill contractor to complete 7,000 meters and up to 8,500 meters of HQ-NQ2-NQ diameter diamond drilling with the option to add a second drill to expand the program to in excess of 12,000 meters for the 2022 drill season, at its district-scale, 89 square-kilometer Florin Gold Project (the “Florin Gold Project”) located in the prolific Tombstone gold belt of the Yukon Territory, Canada (Figure 1).

Further, the Company has retained Fox Exploration Ltd to provide camp and access support services for the planned drill program at the Florin Gold Project.

Drilling at the Florin Gold Project this season is expected to be focused on expansion drilling adjacent to the existing inferred resource which currently contains an inferred mineral resource of 2,474,000 ounces of gold in 170,993,000 tonnes grading 0.45 g/t gold, with a cut-off grade of 0.3 g/t gold at a gold price of 41,650 per ounce (see the Company’s news release dated June 8, 2021, a copy of which is filed under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com).

Prior drill programs at the Florin Gold Project have returned gold mineralization from surface to depth with intercepts and grades comparable to similar intrusion-related gold deposits in the region, including Victoria Gold’s Eagle and Olive gold deposits. The current resource area spans approximately 900 meters on strike along the NW, “Jethro” fault which, through multiple exploration programs, has now been traced for a distance in excess of five kilometers. In addition to expansion drilling to test for potential mineral on adjacent to the existing inferred resource area, the Company intends to test other encouraging geochemistry targets, in particular: those in and around the Treadwell adits immediately to the east of the inferred resource area which have returned high grade rock grab samples containing up to 15.85 g/t Au (see St. James Gold’s news release dated April 29, 2022); and an area of possible clay alteration supported by nearby gold in soil anomalies approximately two kilometers west northwest on strike within the Jethro fault that has been traced for in excess of 5 km. Grab samples are selective by nature and may not be representative of actual grades of styles of mineralization across the Florin Gold Project.

Oversight of the Florin Gold Project is being provided by a 6-member Geoscientist Technical Committee with input from consultants which has currently identified a number of high priority targets across in excess of 30 drill holes at an estimated 300 + meters each. The Company anticipates mobilizing for the 2022 exploration drill program at the Florin Gold Project shortly and the Company will provide further updates in subsequent news releases in the coming weeks.

(Simpson and Jackson 2021)

Since the intercepts lie within a disseminated deposit with mineralization starting at surface and extending beyond the deepest intercepts, and the mineralized zone is laterally extensive, the intercepts are interpreted to represent true thickness of the mineralization.

Previous anomalous soil samples, from trace up to 4,256 ppb gold, extend over a broad zone extending well beyond the footprint of the indicated resource, particularly to the northwest and southeast.

“With a highly experienced drill contractor secured, the Company is in an excellent position to further the Florin Gold Project,” stated George Drazenovic, Chief Executive Officer of St. James Gold. “The prior drill results, include hole ICE 28, being 526 metres of 0.75 g/t Au mineralized from surface and ending in mineralization. The broader intercept also includes a near surface higher grade intercept of 101.4 metres at 1.41 g/t. The current inferred resource remains open both laterally and at depth. We are looking forward to the 2022 drilling program as well as continuing exploration efforts at other prospective target areas within the district-scale property.”

St James’ Operator has a Class 3 Mining Land Use Permit for the Florin Gold Project claim blocks, comprising the 89 square km Florin Gold Project. The Class 3 permit, valid until November 19, 2025, will allow St. James Gold to complete advanced exploration activities across the Florin Gold Project claim blocks. The Class 3 land use permit will allow St. James Gold’s Operator to aggressively move forward to drill test several priority targets across the district-scale Florin Gold Project in 2021 and beyond.
