Warrior Gold Receives Positive Results from IRIS 3D IP on Deloye Patents

TSX-V:WAR

VANCOUVER , Dec. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - Warrior Gold Inc. (TSX-V - WAR) ("Warrior Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has received positive results from the 3D IP (Induced Polarisation) survey on the recently acquired Deloye Patents located in the Goodfish-Kirana Project (see Figure #1).

Danièle Spethmann, President and CEO of Warrior Gold stated: "We are pleased with the results of the IRIS 3D IP geophysical survey. This is the first look at the Deloye Patents area of the Warrior Gold land position with this new technology. Several areas of elevated IP responses were identified (see Figure #2). The north-central IP high is located adjacent to the Deloye historic mine shafts south of Goodfish Lake along the Kirana Break. The close correlation of the chargeability high to the area of known mineralization is encouraging and gives us increased confidence that the survey results can be used as an effective tool in refining drill hole locations."

The survey was designed to explore the configuration/plunge of the Kirana-Kirkland Mine mineralization located on the Deloye patents and other parallel structures associated with quartz-feldspar intrusives on the property. The survey was executed by Canadian Exploration Services (CXS) of Larder Lake and covered 1.4 km2 with over 2700 IP data points acquired from a combination of 78 current injection points and 20 receiver locations.

The Deloye survey will be combined with other historical exploration data from Goodfish-Kirana to provide a comprehensive, property wide data layer for drill target selection.

Warrior Gold continues to carry out the first phase of an extended three phase exploration program on its Goodfish-Kirana Property located near the town of Kirkland Lake , Ontario.  Phase I is focused on targeting and defining drill targets and developing a better understanding of the structural deformation zones on the property.  The Company expects to announce the details of its exploration and drilling campaign in early 2019.
