September 5, 2017
Vancouver, British Columbia: September 5, 2017. Triumph Gold Corp., (TSX-V: TIG) (OTCMKTS: NFRGF) (“Triumph Gold” or the “Company”) applauds the announcement made on September 2, 2017 by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Yukon Premier Sandy Silver committing more than $360 million in combined federal and territorial funding to improve road access in two mineral-rich areas in Yukon, including the Dawson Range in central Yukon. In total, the Yukon Resource Gateway Project will help upgrade over 650 kilometres of road and build or replace numerous bridges, culverts and stream crossings.
In the Dawson Range, four separate public road systems will be upgraded. This includes upgrading the first 82 kilometres of the existing Freegold Road which provides access to Triumph Gold’s Freegold Mountain project. The Company’s Nucleus and Revenue deposits are accessed by secondary roads that extend less than two kilometres from the Freegold Road. All of the other important showings as well as the Tinta deposit are accessed by secondary roads that branch off the Freegold Road.
Paul Reynolds, President and CEO of Triumph Gold stated, “This funding is a significant commitment from both the Territorial and Federal governments and reaffirms our belief that Yukon is one of the best jurisdictions in Canada for mining exploration”.
