Renaissance Gold Drilling Results, South Roberts Project

Renaissance Gold Inc. TSX.V:REN (“RenGold” or the “Company”) reports that assay results have been  received from the initial, 3-hole, 1100 meter (3608 feet) reconnaissance diamond drilling program at the  Company’s South Roberts Project, Eureka County, Nevada. The project is located on the prolific Battle  Mountain-Eureka Trend of gold deposits, and is subject to an earn-in agreement with S2 Resources Ltd.  (ASX:S2R) (See NR dated July 31, 2017).  

Robert Felder, President and CEO states, “We are encouraged by the favorable geologic environment  intersected by the drilling and that we continue to see evidence of proximity to a Carlin-type gold system.  Drill hole spacing on the target is quite wide and there is a lot of room within the project area to host a  significant deposit. We plan to review the existing data in further detail with our partner to come to a  decision about further exploration on the project.” 

The objective of the initial drilling program was to test multiple target horizons associated with specific  favorable stratigraphic units and contacts, located in the crest of a concealed anticline, as interpreted from  past drilling and strongly supported by new controlled source audiomagnetotellurics (CSAMT) survey  lines. Favorable host rocks were intersected in the predicted position and the best assay result was 1.65  meters (5.4 feet) @ 0.17 g/t gold from 491.7 meters (1613 feet) in hole NSRD0001, associated with a zone  of strong brecciation and carbonate veining. The primary stratigraphic targets are shown in Figure 1 and  described below:

• The contact between the Mississippian Webb Formation and the Devonian Devils Gate  Limestone (host to the Rain and Afgan deposits) 

• The upper part of the Devonian Denay Limestone (host to Gold Bar, Gold Canyon and  Goldstone deposits) 

• Subject to depth, the Devonian McColley Canyon Formation (host to Gold Pick, Gold Ridge and Cabin Creek deposits)

The anticlinal structure was initially interpreted from prior drilling on the property and was strongly supported by the new CSAMT data (Figures 2 and 3). The anticline intersects a favorable Carlin-suite enzyme leach geochemical signature and defines a 2 kilometer (1.25 mile) long northwest trending target (Figure 4).

All three holes intersected the Webb-Devils Gate contact confirming the presence of an anticline. Holes  NSRD0001 and NSRD0003 both intersected zones of collapse breccia, decalcification and minor  silicification, with anomalous arsenic, antimony and mercury (maximum values of 491 ppm, 38 ppm and  2 ppm respectively), and weakly anomalous gold. These results may represent a distal signature of Carlin style mineralization on this contact away from the drill holes.
