Thesis Gold Drills 7.00 Metres of 11.69 g/t Au at the Bonanza-Ridge Zone

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 28, 2023) - Thesis Gold Inc. (TSXV: TAU) (WKN: A2QQ0Y) (OTCQX: THSGF) ("Thesis" or the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results from the Bonanza-Ridge Zone at the Ranch Gold Project in British Columbia's Toodoggone mining district.

Highlights

  • Ridge hole 22RDGDD047 returned 7.00 metres (m) core length of 11.69 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au), 5.32 g/t silver (Ag) or 11.76 g/t AuEq** (Table 1), including 2.00 m of 36.43 g/t Au, 11.88 g/t Ag or 36.57 g/t AuEq** (Figures 1).

    • This is the most southerly hole drilled at the Ridge zone and deepest on that section, demonstrating excellent downdip continuity across numerous drill holes.

    • The zone remains open down plunge and along strike (Figure 1).

  • Bonanza hole 22BNZDD018 intercepted over 80.00 m of pervasive alteration from surface that includes 3 separate zones of mineralization (figure 1 & 2);

    • 10.26 m of 2.07 g/t AuEq**

    • 24.00 m of 1.69 g/t AuEq**

    • 5.00 m of 1.83 g/t AuEq**

    • This hole is in the very sparsely drilled Bonanza-Ridge connector zone.

  • A deeper interval in 22BNZDD018 intersected the Bonanza Zone;

    • 30.00 m of 2.00 g/t AuEq**, incl. 12.00 m of 2.82 g/t AuEq**, and 7.08 m of 2.61 g/t AuEq**

  • Strong gold mineralization over wide intercepts at the Bonanza-Ridge Zone further extended mineralization (Figure 1 and Table 1).

    • 22RDGDD029: 10.00 m of 2.28 g/t AuEq**

    • 22BNZDD016: 25.00 m of 1.04 g/t AuEq**

  • Bonanza-Ridge mineralization extends over 700 m along strike.

  • Mineralization associated with northwest and northeast-oriented structures continues to demonstrate good continuity and remains open along strike.

Ewan Webster, President, and CEO, commented, "Drilling activities at the Bonanza-Ridge Zone have produced noteworthy gold and silver intercepts from surface and maintained consistency in grade and continuity at depth. The persistently favorable outcomes thus far demonstrate the immense potential for the resource and highlight the significance of this rapidly expanding area, which will remain a principal area of focus for our upcoming 2023 drill program."

Drill holes 22BNZDD016-19 intercepted significant intervals of strong mineralization at or near surface in an area with considerable opportunity to expand on the mineralized footprint (Figure 1). The mineralized leached, vuggy-silica-altered rocks intersected near surface in these holes are similar in character to the broad zones of mineralization encountered in hole 22BNZDD008 and 22BNZDD009 (Figure 1; see news release from Nov. 7th, 2022) along the northeast extension of the Bonanza Trend. 2023 drilling will continue to test for near-surface mineralization in this very prospective zone between these two well defined trends.

Quality Assurance and Control
Results from samples were analyzed at ALS Global Laboratories (Geochemistry Division) in Vancouver, Canada (an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited facility). The sampling program was undertaken by Company personnel under the direction of Rob L'Heureux, P.Geol. A secure chain of custody is maintained in transporting and storing of all samples. Gold was assayed using a fire assay with atomic emission spectrometry and gravimetric finish when required (+10 g/t Au). Drill intervals with visible gold were assayed using metallic screening. Rock chip samples from outcrop/bedrock are selective by nature and may not be representative of the mineralization hosted on the project.

The technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Michael Dufresne, M.Sc, P.Geol., P.Geo., a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
