April 7, 2020
Toronto, Ontario, April 7, 2020. Signature Resources Ltd. (TSXV-SGU, OTCQB-SGGTF, FSE-3S3) (“Signature” or the “Company”) first and foremost; to our friends and families, shareholders, First Nations communities, contractors, suppliers and colleagues, during these extraordinary, changing times as we all adjust to the new reality imposed by COVID-19, we hope that you stay well, be attentive and safe guard your loved ones.
Project Development – Camp, Drilling and Exploration
The Company is pleased to announce that it has acquired additional specialized equipment which will assist in the movement of crews and drilling equipment. The Company has taken steps to position fuel, lumber and other key supplies regionally, ready for delivery to site. Upon notice of travel being reinstated the Company will be ready to mobilize a field crew to site, to re-establish a new centralized camp location which will allow for expansion as the project grows. Contingent on our success of funding, and travel being reinstated, the Company will mobilize a drill crew, technical staff and general laborers to begin the 2020 drilling program. The focus of this program will initially target the under-drilled very high-grade West zone. The Company anticipates that very positive results will be achieved, as the 2 holes in this zone from the Company’s 2018 drill program indicated high grades, hole 18-01 (9.5 meters with an average grade of 12.5 gpt) and hole 18-02 (5.0 meters with an average grade of 13.65 gpt).
Also planned for summer of 2020, will be an exploration program targeting the western portion of Signature’s land package. A 2-man crew will explore, prospect, map and sample high priority targets. This will help the Company gain an even stronger understanding of the trend we have noted along the greenstone belt as future exploration is planned.
Under volatile conditions Signature Resources is working diligently with its plans regarding the exploration and development of its Lingman Lake gold property. To this end, the company announces that it has entered into an investor relations advisory agreement (the “Investor Relations Agreement”) with East West Fuel Strategies Inc. (“East West”).

Under the terms of the Investor Relations Agreement, East West will provide Investor Relation Activities, within the meaning TSX Venture Exchange policies, to Signature for an initial period of one year. The services will include creating a shareholder communications strategy for the Company, communicating with brokers and potential institutional investors and promoting the corporate image of Signature.

The remaining claim fabric of 484 single cell claims, 14 mineral patents and 4 full patents (mineral and surface rights) will encompass an area of approximately 23.8 kilometers by 3.7 kilometers, which includes 23.8 kilometers of strike length of the favourable granite-volcanic contact.
The scientific and technical content of this press release has been prepared, reviewed and approved by Walter Hanych P.Geo. and President-CEO of Signature Resources who is a Qualified Person as defined in National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects
The Lingman Lake gold property consists of 770 single cell staked claims, four free hold patented claims and 14 mineral rights patented claims totaling approximately 15,754 hectares. The property hosts an historical estimate of 234,684 oz of gold* (1,063,904 tonnes grading 6.86 g/t with 2.73 gpt cut-off) and includes what has historically been referred to as the Lingman Lake Gold Mine, an underground substructure consisting of a 126.5-meter shaft, and 3-levels at 46-meters, 84-meters and 122-meters depths.
This historical resource estimate is based on prior data and reports obtained and prepared by previous operators, and information provided by governmental authorities. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to verify the classification of the mineral resource estimates in accordance with current CIM categories. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate. Establishing a current mineral resource estimate on the Lingman Lake deposit will require further evaluation, which the Company and its consultants intend to complete in due course. Additional information regarding historical resource estimates is available in the technical report entitled, “Technical Report on the Lingman Lake Property” dated December 20, 2013, prepared by Walter Hanych, P.Geo., and Frank Racicot, P.Geo., available on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com
