TORONTO, ONTARIO, (Newsfile Corp. – December 12, 2017) - Braveheart Resources Inc. (TSXV: BHT) ("Braveheart" or, the "Company") announces results from the October 2017 underground sampling program at the Alpine Mine property near Nelson, BC (Alpine). A total of 11 channel samples and 5 grab samples were collected from distinct sections of Level 6 of the Alpine Mine to confirm work performed by Cove Energy in 1988. The grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property. Table 1 below summarizes the assay results. Figures 1 to 3 in the attached Appendix show the relation of the sample location in relation to the previous mine workings and the drill hole collars from the various drilling programs.

Notes on analytical techniquesAll samples were analyzed by Activation Laboratories Inc. of Kamloops, BC utilizing an industry standard 30 elements ICP-MS technique following an aqua-regia digestion (UT-1M). In addition, all mineralized material was analyzed for gold on a large 500g split by fire-assay with an AA finish (1A2). A comprehensive external QAQC procedure was employed by TerraLogic which included regular and strategic inclusions of blanks, standards and duplicates into the sampling stream. Gravimetric analysis (FA-GRA) were completed on all over-detection (>5 g/t Au) fire assay results.
Phil Keele, Braveheart President and CEO stated, “These results have provided us with considerable additional technical information on the mineralized material remaining in the Alpine Mine. Several of the samples collected produced results comparable with similar channel sampling carried out and reported by Cove Resources in 1988. As previously reported this information has been forwarded to the Qualified Person preparing a NI 43-101 Resource Report on the Alpine Mine property."
Braveheart's management continues to work on preparation of its 2018 Budget which includes further definition drilling and bulk sampling from the existing mine workings. The appropriate permit applications will be submitted early in the first quarter of 2018.
