Galleon Gold Announces Reliance on Temporary Regulatory Filing Relief

Newsfile Corp.

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 28, 2020) - Galleon Gold Corp. (TSXV: GGO) (the "Company" or "Galleon Gold") is providing an update on the status of its interim financial statements, accompanying management discussion & analysis and related officer certifications (collectively "Interim Filings") for the period ended February 29, 2020.

On March 23, 2020, the Canadian Securities Administrators announced that they will provide issuers with temporary blanket relief, which provides a 45-day filing extension for certain filings required on or before June 1, 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, the Ontario Security Commission has enacted Ontario Instrument 51-502 ("Instrument 51-502"), Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements.

The Company will be relying on the temporary exemption pursuant to section 7 of Instrument 51-502 with respect to the requirement to file its Interim Filings as per section 4.4(b) and 5.1(2) of National Instrument 51-102 and section 5.1 of National Instrument 52-109. The Company expects to file its Interim Filings no later than June 13, 2020.

Until the Interim Filings are filed, management and other insiders of the Company are subject to a trading black-out policy that reflects the principles in the section 9 of National Policy 11-207 Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.

The Company confirms that, other than as previously disclosed in the Company's press releases, there have not been any material business developments since the filing of its annual financial statements for the year ended November 30, 2019 on March 27, 2020.
