EnGold Reports Initial Results of Ann North Drilling

April 22, 2020

For Immediate Release. April 22, 2020. Vancouver, BC. David H. Brett, President & CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., (TSX-V: EGM, “EnGold” or the “Company”) reports that assay results from the first 604 metres of its planned 800 m Ann North drill hole on EnGold’s 100% owned Lac La Hache Property in the Cariboo Region of Central BC have returned anomalous copper, gold and molybdenum results, confirming the metalliferous nature of the porphyry environment. Assay values correlate with alteration and fracturing intensity observed throughout drill core. Drilling of the final 200 metres and hole deviation surveying will commence when believed safe under Covid-19 health restrictions. Assay results are tabulated below.

“We’re looking forward to surveying and completing the hole as soon as possible,” said EnGold President & CEO David Brett. “EnGold management remains enthusiastic about the potential for a Cadia/Red Chris style discovery on this part of the multi-zone Lac La Hache property.”

“Although drilling has not reached the planned target depth, zones with intense potassic alteration and moderate development of thin stockwork fracturing within the quartz-bearing monzonite/monzodiorite correlate with increased grades for copper, gold and locally, molybdenum” said Rob Shives, VP Exploration. “Quartz-bearing intrusive phases, and molybdenum, are not observed elsewhere at Lac La Hache within the alkalic Peach intrusions. Sulphides +/- quartz, associated with thin fractures/veins, include chalcopyrite, bornite, possibly chalcocite, and pyrite. A wider (20cm core length) quartz-carbonate-sulphide vein carried 2.11 % Cu, 0.63 gpt Au and 6.3 gpt Ag.”

DDH AN20-1 assays are reported below for all intervals sampled to date
(174 samples totalling 343.18 metres of drill core.
