UP TO 3.0 G AU/T OVER 16.00 METRES, 3.0 G AU/T OVER 14.00 METRES, AND 4.4 G AU/T OVER 9.00 METRES

TORONTO, Nov.ember 29, 2018 - Superior Gold Inc. ("Superior Gold" or the"Company") (TSXV:SGI) is pleased to announce results from the recently completed phase two reverse circulation drill program at its Hermes South project. Hermes South is located approximately 20 kilometres south southwest of the Hermes open pit gold mine, which in turn is located 65 kilometres southwest of the Company's 100%-owned Plutonic underground gold mine in Western Australia (Figure 1).

HIGHLIGHTS

  • 3.0 g Au/t over 16.00 metres from 137.00 metres downhole in Hole BHSRC082
  • 3.0 g Au/t over 14.00 metres from 81.00 metres downhole in Hole BHSRC064
  • 4.4 g Au/t over 9.00 metres from 98.00 metres downhole in Hole BHSRC068
  • 3.8 g Au/t over 10.00 metres from 151.00 metres downhole in Hole BHSRC095
  • 3.3 g Au/t over 11.00 metres from 123.00 metres downhole in Hole BHRSRC094
  • 10.9 g Au/t over 3.00 metres from 85.00 metres downhole in Hole BHSRC083
  • 3.2 g Au/t over 10.00 metres from 23.00 metres downhole in Hole BHRSRC100

The Hermes South project is within the Bryah Basin joint venture with Alchemy Resources Ltd. (ASX:ALY). The Company's interest is up to 80% in the joint venture. The Company has previously announced (on April 3, 2018) an initial inferred mineral resource estimate for Hermes South of 1.29 million tonnes at an average grade of 1.54 g Au/t for 64,000 ounces (100% basis).

The phase two reverse circulation program was completed in October and totalled approximately 7,500 metres over 51 holes, including two holes that were deepened from the phase one program. The phase one reverse circulation program was completed in May and totalled approximately 6,900 metres over 45 holes. The goal of both programs was to expand the existing resource and to explore for additional zones of mineralization.

The location of drill holes in the current program are shown in relation to prior drilling and the existing resource in both plan and long section in Figure 2 and Figure 3, respectively. All intersections are provided in Table 2.

Chris Bradbrook, President and CEO of Superior Gold stated: "These results are once again extremely encouraging and suggest the potential to increase the existing resource. The purpose of these drill programs is to determine the potential for the Hermes South project to become a second open pit mining operation. The project is strategically well located and can be readily connected to the main Hermes haul road. This work is part of our near term growth strategy to focus on reestablishing the Plutonic Gold operations at a sustainable production level of at least 100,000 ounces of gold annually. Our goal is to provide an updated reserve and resource estimate in the first quarter of 2019 using drill results to the end of 2018."

Quality Control Protocols

Hermes South drilling has been completed using Reverse Circulation drilling. Samples are collected for every metre directly off the cyclone using a cone splitter, set to approximately 3kg sample size.
