Sharing the details on the exploration program, Greg McCunn, CEO of Alio Gold, said:

"The discovery of two new breccia targets outcropping at surface and within close proximity to the existing Mineral Resource is an exciting development and shows the potential of our 56,000-hectare land package. The surface drilling to test the known extension of the breccia below the proposed pit is designed to allow us to more fully understand the nature and extent of the mineralization ahead of drilling from underground."

Results of Regional Exploration

Alio Gold has been conducting higher resolution (1:5,000 scale) geological mapping of the areas surrounding the Ana Paula deposit as a part of its ongoing regional explorations. While conducting the mapping towards the west, two breccia outcrops were discovered located within 1.5 kilometers from the Ana Paula deposit. These two breccia targets in the west are outcroppings of magmatic and hydrothermal breccia mineralization with traces of pyrite and arsenopyrite. The Company is undertaking further exploration in the area including sampling, mineralogy, and more detailed mapping.

Results of Surface Drilling Program

The Company is undertaking exploration at the Ana Paula with two main objectives, one is to further delineate the known extension of the high-grade breccia mineralization below the proposed open pit and the second is to test a lower-grade hydrothermal breccia structure lying south of the proposed pit. Alio Gold had initiated a 3,800-meter diamond drilling program in January 2018 with the aim of drilling six holes of 600 meters to 700 meters each.

Since then the Company has used one drill rig and has completed the drilling of the first two holes and the third hole is currently being drilled. So far it has completed total drilling of over 1,300 meters. The first hole intersected the hydrothermal breccia system over a mineralized interval of approximately 180 meters and the higher grade complex breccia below the proposed pit over a 27-meter interval. Similarly, the second hole also intersected the hydrothermal breccia over approximately 177 meters and the complex breccia over a 31-meter interval. The Company plans to share the results of the analysis once they complete the drilling in the south in Q1 2018 after which it plans to move the drilling to the North Area target.

Progress in the Decline Construction and Underground Drilling Program

Alio Gold plans to conduct further tests in Q3 2018 on the extension of the high-grade breccia system below the proposed pit from drilling underground. At present the Company is working on the construction of a 1,200-metre underground decline which is being driven from a portal site located in the adjacent valley from the proposed pit and approximately 400 meters from the proposed mill site. the Company is confident that it would have made significant advancement in the underground decline by Q3 2018 that it can initiate the first phase of the underground diamond drill program. The drill program is expected to confirm the continuity and shape of the high-grade gold mineralization below the proposed pit that is hosted in the breccia and it will also explore the gold mineralization indications at depth hosted in hornfels skarn, typical of the Guerrero Gold Belt. The proposed underground drilling program plans for 55 diamond drill holes (12,000 meters).

The Company's mining contractor is preparing the portal site with bolting, screening, and shotcreting. Alio Gold has arranged for mining equipment including a jumbo drill rig, scoop and two trucks, expected to arrive within the next week. In the meanwhile, the Company is mining using jack-leg drilling. Alio Gold has revealed that the mining operations are being conducted on a 24/7 basis.

Alio Gold is building support infrastructure including a 100-person camp site fully prepared for the arrival of the modular units. Additionally, the Company is installing power lines between the camp and the mine portal areas and building a communications tower which will be operational in Q2 2018.
