Getchell Gold Corp. (CSE: GTCH) (OTCQB: GGLDF) ("Getchell" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the Company has executed a contract to secure two drill rigs for the entirety of 2022 to conduct exploration at the Company's Nevada based projects.

"The discovery of our Colorado SW and North Fork gold zones and the successful follow-up drill results indicate an extensive mineralizing system at the Fondaway Canyon gold project that remains open to depth and along strike. The procurement of a second drill rig will facilitate an accelerated advancement and broader delineation of these discoveries," states Mike Sieb, President, Getchell Gold Corp. "In addition, the second drill rig will enhance our news flow next year and allow for the much-anticipated maiden drill program at the Star high-grade copper-gold-silver project."

2022 Drill Contract

Getchell Gold Corp. has executed a contract ("Drill Contract") with First Drilling LLC ("First Drilling"), headquartered in Montrose, CO, with a regional office located in Elko, NV. The Drill Contract ensures the services of two coring drill rigs for the 2022 drill season.

The Company is planning to employ the two drills for the further exploration and resource definition at the Fondaway Canyon gold project as well as conducting the maiden drill program at the Star high-grade copper-gold-silver project.

Fondaway Canyon 2nd Anniversary Option Payment

The definitive option agreement to acquire 100% of the Fondaway Canyon and Dixie Comstock projects ("Projects") was executed on January 03, 2020 ("Canagold Agreement"). Under the terms of the Canagold Agreement, Getchell can acquire the Projects at any time on or before the 4th anniversary of the Canagold Agreement by paying Canagold Resources Ltd., formerly Canarc Resources Corp. ("Canagold") a total of US$2.0M in cash, issuing US$2.0M in Getchell shares, completing US$1.45M in exploration expenditures and granting Canagold a 2% net smelter return ("NSR") in each of the Projects. One percentage point of the NSR's can be bought out for US$1,000,000 on each project (refer to Company news release dated January 07, 2020, for further details).

The Company's Board of Directors has approved the 2nd Anniversary cash payment of US$100,00 and issuance of US$300,000 in shares of the Company in advance of the anniversary date. The exploration expenditures incurred to date for the 2020 and 2021 drill programs at Fondaway (refer to Company news release dated November 13, 2020, for further details) have far exceeded the exploration expenditure 2nd Anniversary requirement and ensures the option to acquire the Fondaway Canyon Gold project remains in good standing through 2022.

Drill Sample Analysis Update

The drill core samples from the 2021 drill program at the Fondaway Canyon gold project are being prepped and analyzed at Bureau Veritas' lab located in Sparks, NV. On Nov. 22, 2021, Bureau Veritas publicly announced that on Saturday November 20th, 2021, the cybersecurity system of Bureau Veritas detected a cyber-attack. As a preventive measure and to protect their clients, Bureau Veritas took their servers and data offline while assessing and addressing the issue. This decision caused a partial unavailability or slowdown of their services.

As a result, the fire assay and multi-element analysis of Getchell's samples have been delayed due to the incident. Fortunately, the full pre-analysis preparation (i.e. core cutting, crushing, and pulverizing) of the samples continues unabated.

Bureau Veritas is actively working to restore operations and as at Dec. 2, 2021, announced that more than 80% of their operations are running at a normal level. Therefore, we anticipate the full resumption of the analyses of the Company's samples shortly.

The incident has contributed to a delay in the release of Getchell's next batch of results for hole FCG21-11, however once the lab regains full systems operation, we expect this batch of results to be released shortly thereafter. Of particular note, since the pre-analysis preparation of all of our in-lab sample batches (holes FCG21-12 through 15) remained ongoing through this period, the lag in the analysis of our outstanding samples should dissipate in short order.

Corporate Update

Getchell Gold Corp. further announces that incentive stock options to purchase up to 2,300,000 common shares of the Company have been granted to management, directors, consultants, and advisors pursuant to the Company's stock option plan. The options are exercisable at $0.57 per share for a period of ten years from the grant date.

The Company further announces the issuance of 537,550 common shares of the Company, at a deemed price of $0.71 per share, to Canagold Resources Ltd. as the fulfilment of the 2nd Anniversary share issuance obligation pursuant to the Canagold Agreement, detailed above. The shares issued will be subject to a four month hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws.

The Company reports that it has retained German Mining Networks GmbH ("GMN"), a Germany-based resource-focused advisory group contracted to facilitate introductions with a European network of investors. The agreement with GMN, initiated on November 22, 2021, continues on a month-by-month basis until terminated by the Company. The Company will pay a fee of $4,800 per month for the services GMN renders.
