Renaissance Gold Project Update

Renaissance Gold Inc. TSX.V:REN (“RenGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to report on the progress  and status of our Nevada, USA projects and our anticipated drilling plans for 2018. 

Kinross funded projects 

Kinross Gold U.S.A., Inc. a subsidiary of Kinross Gold Corp. (NYSE:KGC; TSX:K) entered into earn-in  agreements on the Diamond Point, Buffalo Canyon and Spruce East projects in May, 2017 (See NR dated  May 15, 2017), and completed drill programs on all three projects. (See NRs dated October 26, 2017 and  December 6, 2017). We are pleased to report that Kinross has notified the Company that they will be  returning for another round of drilling on the Spruce East Project which includes a 2nd year minimum  expenditure of US$200,000 to maintain the option. Drilling during 2017 at Spruce East encountered  significant zones of anomalous geochemistry and meaningful gold intercepts (See NR dated October 26,  2017) further defining a Carlin-like geochemical cell which remains open to expansion.  

At Buffalo Canyon, the 2017 drilling program encountered long runs of low-grade gold mineralization (See  NR dated December 6, 2017), expanding the footprint of known mineralization on the project, and including  the highest single assay received to date of 5.34 g/t Au. Despite this encouragement, Kinross has decided  to not continue to earn-in on the project. The property is now being actively marketed to attract a new  venture partner. 

At Diamond Point, all of the 2017 drill holes bottomed in Chainman Shale and did not reach the target  stratigraphy of the Webb formation. Gold values in 5 foot (1.5 m) sample intervals ranged from below  detection limits to 0.29 g/t Au, establishing the continuation of the surface gold showings along the West  fault under shallow alluvial cover 400 meters to the north. Kinross has decided to not continue to earn-in  on this project. The Company is currently assessing the remaining target potential. 

AngloGold Ashanti, NA 

AngloGold Ashanti, North America, Inc., a subsidiary of Anglo Gold Ashanti (“Anglo”) (NYSE:AU;  JSE:ANG; ASX:AGG) holds an option to acquire the Silicon project from the Company for a series of  payments totaling US$3,000,000 over 3 years. Anglo has informed the Company that they have  commenced a diamond drill program during January, 2018 and have plans to drill approximately 3000  meters. Silicon is located in the Bare Mountains, Nye County, Nevada and contains extensive exposures  characteristic of the upper portions of a low-sulfidation, epithermal gold system. The project is near Corvus  Gold Inc’s (TSX.V:KOR) North Bullfrog and Mother Lode Projects, where they are active and reporting  good drill results, and Northern Empire Resources’ (TSX.V:NM) Sterling Mine. 

S2 Resources 

S2 Resources Ltd. (ASX:S2R), through their subsidiary Nevada Star Resources LLC has an option to earn  a 70% interest on three of the Company’s projects, Pluto, South Roberts and Ecru (See NR dated July 31,  2017). S2 has recently completed geophysical and geochemical surveys at South Roberts and plans  additional geophysical surveys at Ecru, with plans to drill both projects in the spring. South Roberts and  Ecru are both Carlin-type targets located along the prolific Battle Mountain-Eureka (Cortez) Trend of gold  deposits.  

Ramelius Resources 

Ramelius Resources Ltd. (ASX:RMS), our joint venture funding partner, has an option to earn a 75%  interest in the Company’s Jupiter project in Nye County, Nevada (see NR dated June 21, 2017). Ramelius  completed a Phase 1 drill program in December, 2017, as a first test of two drill targets. The results of this  program were positive and encountered anomalous gold mineralization in several holes drilled in the NE  Pediment target including an intercept of 30 feet (9.1 meters) of 1.10 g/t Au (See NR dated January 29,  2018). Ramelius is evaluating the results of this program and planning follow-up drilling in the summer. 

Coeur Explorations 

Coeur Explorations, Inc. (“Coeur”), a subsidiary of Coeur Mining Inc. (NYSE:CDE) has an option to earn in to 70% on the Company’s Cine Mountain Project in Nye County, Nevada (see NR dated December 4,  2017). The project contains a large area of gold bearing jasperoids. Coeur has a minimum work  commitment in the first agreement year of US$250,000 and is developing drill targets to be tested this year. 

Radius Gold 

Radius Gold Inc. (TSX.V:RDU) has an option to acquire the Spring Peak Project, Mineral County, Nevada, from the Company for a series of payments and work commitments (See Radius Gold NR dated June 14,  2016). Radius completed the necessary baseline studies in 2017 to satisfy the U.S. Forest Service permitting  requirements and are finalizing steps to getting the required bonding in place. Drilling is planned in the  summer. Spring Peak is a well preserved low-sulfidation, epithermal gold system in the Walker Lane 

structural corridor near the Aurora, Borealis, and Bodie deposits. Spring Peak contains widespread gold  on surface, in banded veins with grades up to 35 g/t Au. Radius has conducted rock chip and soil sampling  and a CSAMT survey, and has developed drill targets looking for subvertical high-grade veins as feeders  to the sinter terraces. Drilling on this project conducted more than 30 year ago consisted of very shallow  and mostly vertical holes, which contained anomalous gold in most holes and individual samples up to 1.93  g/t Au, but did not test the system for the deeper, high-grade bonanza vein potential.  

Robert Felder, President and CEO states, “It is exciting to begin the year with strong partners actively  exploring several of our projects and having firm plans to drill at least 7 of these projects during 2018. We  continue to generate and acquire new projects, actively market to attract more funding partners and remain  committed to creating shareholder value through discovery.”
