This Website has been prepared solely for the purpose of providing information about Gold Standard and its operations. The scientific and technical information contained in this Website relating to Gold Standard’s mineral projects has been prepared by, or under the supervision of, Steve Koehler, P. Geo, CPG, the Company’s Manager of Projects and a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101), unless otherwise stated. Although considerable care has been taken in preparing and maintaining the information and materials contained in this Website, such information and materials are provided solely on an “as is” basis.
The following is a description of Gold Standard’s sampling methodology, chain of custody, quality control and quality assurance procedures (QA/QC) applicable to the Company’s drill results contained in this Website, save and except for historical results. All sampling was conducted under the supervision of the Company’s project geologists and the chain of custody from the project to the sample preparation facility was continuously monitored. Core was cut at the company’s facility in Elko and one half or one quarter was sent to the lab for analysis and the remaining material retained in the original core box. A blank or certified reference material was inserted approximately every tenth sample. The Dark Star samples were delivered to either Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories or ALS Chemex preparation facility in Elko, NV where they were crushed and pulverized. Resulting sample pulps were shipped to Bureau Veritas or ALS certified laboratory in Sparks, NV. Pulps were digested and analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish on a 30 gram split. Original pulps for the check assay program were delivered to the ALS certified lab in Sparks, NV, where the pulps were digested and analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish on a 30 gram split. The Pinion and North Bullion samples were delivered to either ALS Chemex or Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories preparation facility in Elko, NV where they were crushed and pulverized. Resulting sample pulps were shipped to ALS Chemex or Bureau Veritas certified laboratory in Sparks, NV or Vancouver, BC. Pulps were digested and analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish on a 30 gram split. All other elements were determined by ICP analysis. Data verification of the analytical results included a statistical analysis of the standards and blanks that must pass certain parameters for acceptance to insure accurate and verifiable results. Historical assays contained in this Website have not been confirmed by Gold Standard, are of uncertain QA/QC standards and should not be relied upon. They are presented as a guide to future exploration.

Except for the statements of historical fact contained herein, certain information presented constitutes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Canadian and United States securities and other laws. Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “plans”, “expects”, “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “aims”, “anticipates”, “will”, “projects”, or “believes” or variations (including negative variations) of such words and phrases, or statements that certain actions, events, results or conditions “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved. Forward looking statements contained on this Website include: statements regarding exploration plans, budgets and discoveries and future production; assessments of geological structures and mineralization; and estimates of quantity and grade of mineral resources. By their very nature, forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, some of which are beyond our control. Forward looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management at the date the statements are made, as well as a number of assumptions made by, and information currently available to, Gold Standard concerning, among other things, anticipated geological formations, potential mineralization, future plans for exploration and/or development, potential future production, drilling exposure, exploration budgets and timing of expenditures and plans, potential for acquisition of mineral resources, and beliefs with respect to corporate social responsibility, all of which involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievement of Gold Standard to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to vary materially from results anticipated by such forward looking statements include, among others, risks related to the Company’s limited operating history, current and future exploration activities, the Company’s need for significant additional capital, changes in government legislation, changes in ownership interest in a project, conclusions of economic evaluations, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined, future prices and volatility of gold, silver and other metals, environmental risks and hazards, infrastructure and/or operating costs, labor and employment matters, availability of financing, permitting availability, government regulation, changes in equity markets, the uncertainties involved in interpreting geological data, the validity of the Company’s title to its properties, increases in costs and exchange rate fluctuations, the Company’s dependence on key personnel, as well as those factors discussed in the sections “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Statements and Forward Looking Information”, “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in Gold Standard’s Annual Information Form (AIF) dated March 29, 2018, available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and Form 40-F dated March 29, 2018, available on EDGAR at www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml.
All resource estimates reported by the Company were calculated in accordance with NI 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Classification system. These standards differ significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for descriptions of mineral properties in SEC Industry Guide 7 under Regulation S-K of the U. S. Securities Act of 1933 (“Industry Guide 7”). In particular, this Website and the materials posted on it use the terms “mineral resources,” “measured mineral resources,” “indicated mineral resources” and “inferred mineral resources.” Industry Guide 7 does not recognize these categories, and US companies are generally not permitted to disclose them in documents filed with the SEC. Investors are specifically cautioned not to assume that any part or all of any mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into mineral reserves under SEC standards. Further, “inferred mineral resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined legally or economically. Therefore, investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an “inferred mineral resource” exists. It also cannot assumed that all or any part of “indicated mineral resources” or “inferred mineral resources” will ever be upgraded to a higher category of mineral resources, or that mineral resources will be classified as mineral reserves. Under U S standards, mineral resources may not be classified as a “reserve” unless the determination has been made that mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve determination is made. Disclosure of “contained ounces” is permitted under the Canadian disclosure rules; however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute reserves as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures. For the above reasons, information on this Website containing descriptions of the Company’s mineral properties may not be comparable to similar information made public by US public reporting companies.
