Intersects High Grade Mineralization

Calgary, Alberta (January 22, 2018) – PRIZE MINING CORPORATION (“Prize” or the “Company”) (TSXV:PRZ) (OTCQB:PRZFF) (MQSP:GR:FRANKFURT) is pleased to announce it has now received final assay results from its initial drilling program on the Daylight Property located in southeastern, BC.

Encouraging assay results have been obtained from an 18-hole drill program which tested a number of targets identified from a combination of soil geochemical anomalies, elevated surface rock sample results, geophysical indicators, historical drilling records and surface workings.
Highlights from the 2017 daylight drilling program include:

  • Hole DL17005 on the Great Western zone intersected a 0.9 metre interval which assayed 63.7 g/tgold encountered at 46.4 metres depth. Above this interval, results returned 32.6 metres of 1.16 g/t gold hosted in strongly altered granodioritic rock of the Jurassic Silver King Formation (“Jsk”). This intercept includes 0.5 metres of 20.9 g/t gold, 0.79 metres of 11.6 g/t gold and 0.6 metres of 10.3 g/tgold associated with vuggy quartz-carbonate veins containing semi-massive pyrite and blebby chalcopyrite.
  • Hole DL17007 on the Great Western zone intersected a 71.22 metre interval of 1.09 g/t gold at 74.28 metres encountered in strongly altered Jsk. This interval includes 0.5 metres of 7.36 g/t gold and4.91 metres of 4.39 g/t gold with a 0.48 metre spike of 21.2 g/t gold associated with quartz-carbonate veining/swarms containing pyrite and chalcopyrite. Also in DL17007, is a deeper 19 metre intercept of 1.0 g/t gold at 168 metres.
  • Hole DL17016 on the Daylight zone intersected a 5 metre intercept of 2.76 g/t gold (including 1 metre of 5.77 g/t gold) from a set of quartz-carbonate veins hosted in intermediate to mafic volcanic rocks.

Feisal Somji, Prize’s Chief Executive Officer, commented “These encouraging results confirm the presence of significant widths of mineralization along both the Great Western/Eastern and Victoria/Starlight/Daylight zones on Prize’s Daylight Property. We are particularly excited by the high-grade shoots located within the broad zones of gold mineralization. We expect to receive drill assay results of the recently completed drill program at the Toughnut Property soon and from there we are eager to start a follow up drilling program based on the results of the drill programs on each of the Daylight and Toughnut Properties.”

Diamond Drilling and Sampling Procedures

The Company engaged TerraLogic Exploration Inc. (“TerraLogic”) of Cranbrook, B.C. as contractor to carry out the drill program recently completed on each of the Daylight and Toughnut Properties

All samples were assayed by Bureau Veritas, in Vancouver BC. Analytical packages utilized a strong acid ICP analysis (MA250) and gold fire-assay analysis on a large 50g split (FA450). Gravimetric analysis (FA550) were carried out on any over detection gold assays greater than 10 g/t.

Quality Control

The Company follows a rigorous Quality Assurance/Quality Control program over the chain-of-custody of samples and the insertion of standards, blanks and duplicates into the sample stream submitted to the laboratory for analysis. TerraLogic personnel maintained a rigorous and independent QA/QC program throughout the duration of the core sampling program. Standards were inserted every 20 samples and duplicate samples of suspected high grade intervals were always followed by blanks to ensure smearing effect was not an issue.

Bureau Veritas is wholly independent of Prize Mining and TerraLogic and is accredited under CAN-P-4E (ISO/IEC 17025): General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories ISO/IEC 17025-2005

Jarrod Brown, P.Geo., of TerraLogic, a Qualified Person under NI 43-101, is the Company’s nominated qualified person responsible for monitoring the supervision and quality control of the programs completed on the Company’s properties. Mr. Brown has approved and verified the scientific and technical information in this news release based through his experience with the Daylight Property in general.

The forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by Prize, including the results of the 2017 drilling program on Prize’s Daylight Property and the timing for the release of the assay results of the 2017 drilling program on Prize’s Toughnut Property. Although Prize believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because Prize can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. There is no assurance that the result of these exploration programs will be successful.
