Enforcer Gold Corp. (TSXV:VEIN) is pleased to present a compilation of historical and 2018 drilling results that highlight the gold-copper mineralization potential of the North zone at the Roger Project. The Roger Project is advantageously located 5 km north of Chibougamau, Quebec, has all-season road access and is crossed by a power line that serviced the past-producing Troilus Mine. Enforcer is earning a 50% interest in the project from project operator, SOQUEM.
As reported in the Company’s June 20, 2018 press release, 2018 hole 1206-18-94 returned continuous lower-grade mineralization encompassing both the North and Main zones over an impressive 514.5 m of core length to a vertical depth of ~400 m. A copper-enriched gold zone correlating with the North zone was intercepted from 79.5-129.5 mdown hole, returning 54 m of 0.18 g/t Au and 0.11% Cu (Table 1).
President and CEO, Steve Roebuck, comments:
“The North zone appears to form an entirely different system of mineralization from the Main zone of the Mop-II deposit. It has a different style of mineralization whereby both copper and gold are present in highly anomalous quantities over wide intervals. The added copper component at the North zone makes it an important exploration target and further work is planned to better understand the geology and define its potential.”
The North zone is currently poorly understood, given there is no surface exposure and only 8 drill holes have tested the zone. Of those, only 4 holes drilled by SOQUEM (2008-2018) systematically assayed for copper and gold. Of the two 1986 holes reported in Table 1, 86-MOP2-02 only reported sporadic assays while 86-MOP2-03 reported numerous copper assays but on discontinuous intervals. The other two historical holes had only been assayed for gold and are not reported in Table 1.
A drill hole location plan is available in the Roger Map Gallery.

|Notes to Table 1:
All holes presented in Table 1 were completed by diamond (core) drilling. Widths represent down hole core lengths; true widths are unknown at this time. The 1986 holes were drilled by Flanagan Inc. and the 2008-2011 holes by SOQUEM. Sampling of hole 86-MOP2-03 was discontinuous, hence there are numerous intervals where no samples were taken; a value of zero, “0” was assigned to these intervals to calculate a weighted average for the entire interval. Copper and gold equivalents were calculated using a US$1,270/oz gold price and US $3.10/lb copper price.
The 2018 Phase 1 drilling program was managed by project operator, SOQUEM, utilizing standard industry procedures and protocols and following a formal quality assurance and quality control (“QAQC”) program. Sample preparation and analysis were performed by ALS Minerals in Val-d’Or, Quebec, a CAN-P-1579, CAN-P-4E (ISO/IEC 17025:2005) accredited testing laboratory. Gold grades are determined using a standard fire assay with atomic absorption finish on a 30g pulverized fraction. Samples grading above 2 g/t are re-assayed using fire assay with gravimetric finish on a 30g fraction on both the pulps and rejects. Copper was assayed by ICP-AES following a four-acid digestion. Pulps and rejects from the samples grading above 10,000ppm are re-assayed by ICP or AAS following a four-acid digestion. SOQUEM routinely inserts blanks, duplicates and standards in the sample sequence as part of its internal QAQC program.
SOQUEM Inc., a subsidiary of Ressources Québec, is a leading player in mineral exploration with its mission to explore, discover and develop mining properties in Quebec. SOQUEM has participated in more than 350 exploration projects and contributed to major discoveries of gold, diamonds, lithium and other mineral commodities in Quebec.
