INTERSECTIONS INCLUDE 11.7 G AU/T OVER 11.45 METRES, 42.2 G AU/T OVER 1.60 METRES, AND 18.2 G AU/T OVER 3.90 METRES

TORONTO, Sept. 25, 2017 - Superior Gold Inc. ("Superior Gold" or the "Company") (TSX.V:SGI) is pleased to announce results from the ongoing underground diamond drill program at its 100%-owned Plutonic Gold Mine in Western Australia. The drilling was conducted from mid June to mid July 2017.

Results are provided for 104 diamond drill holes for a total of more than 6,500 metres. The drill holes were completed for resource definition and grade control purposes. Resource definition was designed to increase the confidence level of the resource in areas where drilling was limited. Grade control drilling was completed to provide additional information for stope design ahead of mining.

The drilling focussed on 6 zones – Area 134; Baltic; Caribbean; Caspian; Indian; and Pacific. A number of significant intersections were encountered.

KEY FINDINGS

  • 100 intersections encountered in excess of 5g Au/t
  • 41 intersections encountered more than 10g Au/t
  • 11 intersections encountered more than 20g Au/t

The location of the most significant intersections are shown in Figure 1 and the details of all holes are summarized by zone in Table 2.

Chris Bradbrook, President and CEO of Superior Gold stated: "As with our previously released results (May 11, August 2 and August 31, 2017), these results continue to demonstrate the strength of the mineralized system at the Plutonic Gold Mine. We remain extremely encouraged by these drill results and continue to work towards increasing the confidence level in the resources. One of our principal goals is to grow the level of underground reserves and to extend the mine life."
