TDG Gold Corp (TSXV:TDG) (the "Company" or "TDG") announces that at approximately 6:00 pm PDT, October 5th, 2021, TDG was informed by one of its drilling contractors, NewAge Drilling Solutions, of an accident involving a contractor's employee at a TDG project site that tragically resulted in the fatality of the individual. The accident involved a side-by-side, also known as a utility task vehicle, and occurred at the Shasta mine site, located north of Prince George

The RCMP and all appropriate provincial safety authorities including WorkSafeBC and the Chief Inspector of Mines, were immediately notified. All exploration activities have been suspended temporarily at Shasta while TDG and authorities investigate the incident.

"The thoughts of the board of directors and management are with the family, friends and colleagues of the individual that has been lost and any others that have been impacted by this tragic accident," said Fletcher Morgan, CEO and Director. "The health and safety of all personnel, including contractors, at any TDG site is our number one priority. We are devastated our team at site has suffered such a tragic loss. We have also launched an internal investigation to determine what occurred and have immediately activated a safety retraining program for all site staff."

In addition to an onsite Mine Manager and Occupational First Aid Level 3, TDG also has a dedicated Health and Safety Coordinator for Shasta and all projects in the Toodoggone region. TDG is arranging support and counselling to assist employees and contractors at the Shasta project's Baker Camp. Senior staff are enroute to the site to provide support to the team and begin the investigation.

TDG acquired this site in late 2020 with the goal of re-activating the gold-silver project and had brought the site back into full compliance with safety rules and regulations.
