WHITE ROCK, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 23, 2021 / TDG Gold Corp (TSXV:TDG) (the 'Company' or 'TDG') is pleased to provide assay results from grab samples collected in October 2020 during a site due diligence visit to the Baker-Shasta Project. A total of nineteen representative samples were collected from three different locations on site: Shasta underground pillars, Shasta stockpile and Baker Mill stockpile.
Shasta Underground Workings
Four grab samples were taken during the site visit from underground stations. Two of the grab samples taken from pillars left in the centre of the mineralized Shasta Zone returned high grades for both gold and silver, including 10.40 grams per tonne ('gpt') gold ('Au') and 768.00 gpt silver ('Ag'), and 10.00 gpt Au and 782.00 gpt Ag. Two grab samples taken from wallrock peripheral to the main mineralized zone returned 0.55 gpt Au and 18.00 gpt Ag and 0.26 gpt Au and 15 gpt Ag. These results continue to support confidence in the recompiled historical data, indicating both grade within the ore zone and the surrounding mineralized halo.

A total of twelve grab samples were collected from the Shasta stockpile which is located 75 metres ('m') from the Creek Pit and has an estimated footprint 145 m long by 45 m wide and variably 5-10 m high. The stockpile consists of material removed from the underground workings and pit, but not sent to the nearby Baker Mill as it was deemed to be too low grade for processing in the pre-2012 period. The twelve samples ranged in values from 0.04 to 19.00 gpt Au and 0.60 to 95.60 gpt Ag. The grades from the stockpile further confirm the potential for a Shasta Zone mineralized halo.

Baker Mill Stockpile
The stockpile is located close to the Baker Mill, approximately 450 m from the Baker Mine and eight kilometres from the Shasta Mine.
Three grab samples of stockpile material were collected consisting of vein and weathered country rock. The samples returned grades between 1.10 gpt to 3.10 gpt Au, and 30 gpt to 90 gpt Ag. This material was likely stacked during the final days of the site working, but never passed through the Baker Mill.

Samples were sent to Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories in Vancouver, British Columbia for processing. They were crushed, split and pulverized to take a 250-gram split passing a 200 micron mesh. Samples were then assayed using Aqua Regia digestion ICP-ES analysis with Fire Assay for gold. Any 'overlimit' samples further subjected to a gravity finish to produce accurate values.
