Sabina Gold & Silver Continues To Expand The Nuvuyak Discovery With Strong Gold Values Over Broadly Mineralized Iron Formation

Press Release

Includes 18.71g/t Au over 3.5m and 10.04g/t Au over 18m
from drill hole 19GSE566

Vancouver, BC – Sabina Gold & Silver Corp (SBB.T: SGSVF.OTCQX), (“Sabina” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce further results from this year’s spring drilling program at its 100% owned Back River Gold Project in Nunavut Canada.

On June 19, 2019 the Company announced results of an up-plunge hole at the Vault Zone at Umwelt (hole 19GSE569) which returned 14.97 g/t Au over 21.75m including 28.94 g/t Au over 5.20m. Further drilling during the spring, includes an up-plunge drill hole at the Nuvuyak discovery (hole 19GSE566), and two holes, (19GSE563 and 19GSE565) drilled to test portions of the Llama gold structure.

At Nuvuyak, drill hole 19GSE566 tested a folded section of the main anticline structure approximately 50m up plunge of the original discovery area. Multiple broad zones of mineralized iron formation were intersected from 719m to 836m with a number of gold mineralized intervals highlighting 18.71 g/t Au over 3.50m, 2.59 g/t Au over 19.0m, 4.21 g/t Au over 3.20m and 10.04 g/t Au over 18.00m.

At the Llama Extension target, where aggressive step out drilling has successfully demonstrated over 500m of potential down plunge resource extension from the existing underground NI 43-101 resource, hole 19GSE563 tested a 150m undrilled gap area between the resource and the upper portions of the Llama Extension. This hole drifted lower than planned, only testing an eastern portion of the full structure, but importantly, it returned strong values that confirm continuity of the gold structure with 5.48 g/t Au over 4.95m including 31.38 g/t Au over 0.60m and 3.84 g/t Au over 5.60m including 15.27 g/t Au over 0.85m. Drill hole 19GSE565 tested a down plunge, lower section of the Llama Extension mineral zone to provide additional information on geometry of the structure, and returned numerous intercepts of well mineralized iron formation that include; 6.59 g/t Au over 4.75m including 26.40 g/t Au over 1.10m, 4.24 g/t Au over 10.65m and 9.70 g/t Au over 1.00m.

Bruce McLeod, President and CEO states “This drilling at Nuvuyak and Llama Extension continues to build positive momentum for de-risked resource growth optionality at these two growth targets. It has also further enabled us to continue to build confidence in and understanding of the mineralized structures within the Goose property gold complex. In the future our team will be able to utilize this knowledge when exploration expands to other areas of the Back River District. I look forward to the results of the final four drill hole of the Spring drilling campaign in the coming weeks.”

Nuvuyak Discovery Drilling

The Nuvuyak Zone was discovered in 2018 with drill hole 18GSE545 which returned 11.58 g/t Au over 39.50m – see news release August 20, 2018. The mineral zone which is located approximately 800m down plunge of the Goose Main deposit has now been drilled for over 250m of strike length and exhibits many of the geologic and mineralogic characteristics of the existing Goose Property deposits (Llama, Umwelt and Goose Main) The deposit is open up and down plunge as well as in the down dip direction along the limbs of the anticlinal fold. Examples of select significant intervals from recent Nuvuyak drilling include; drill holes 18GSE559W1 which returned 12.41 g/t Au over 8.70m, 18GSE558 which returned 16.39 g/t Au over 13.20m and 18GSE558W2 which returned 5.81 g/t Au over 34.60m.

Llama Extension Drilling

Sabina has now tested the Llama Extension target with 16 drill holes over a strike length of greater than 500m. The folded and sulphidized iron formation host structure remains open at depth. Currently, the feasibility only incorporates an open pit operation at Llama with no underground production. Recent drilling suggests the opportunity for future expansion and addition of an underground mining scenario at the Llama complex. Significant gold mineralization below the planned Llama open pit, including existing NI 43-101 resources and the new Llama Extension, potentially now continues for greater than 1200m down plunge. Examples of select significant intervals from recent Llama Extension drilling along the strike of the new zone includes, drill holes 18GSE535 which returned 28.95 g/t Au over 5.65m, 17GSE516B which returned 9.48 g/t Au over 38.55m and 18GSE546 which returned 11.43 g/t Au over 5.48m.
