TORONTO, ONTARIO, (Newsfile Corp. – November 15, 2017) - Braveheart Resources Inc. (TSXV: BHT) ("Braveheart" or, the "Company") announces the final results from the recently completed 2017 diamond drilling program at the Alpine Mine property near Nelson, BC (Alpine) with more than 1,600 meters drilled in 11 holes. Braveheart had reported the results from 10 holes, the best assay coming from Hole AL17008 returning 33.6 g/t Au over 1.6m (including 66.1 g/t Au over 0.8m). Figure 1 in the Appendix shows the drill hole locations; Figure 2 is a typical cross section of several of the drill holes intersecting the mineralized vein structure.

Phil Keele, Braveheart President and CEO stated, “These results have substantially improved our understanding of the extent and quality potential that our flagship Alpine Property holds. We look forward to receiving the NI 43-101 Resource Report for the Alpine Project before year end and preparation of our 2018 Budget and 3 year rolling plan”.
Additional Highlights from the 2017 Program:
- Channel sampling was carried out in 5 distinct sections of Level 6 of the Alpine Mine confirming work performed by Cove Resources in 1988. Additional details with respect to location and extent of the channel samples will be provided once evaluation is complete. The best five results of the 17 samples taken were as follows:
- 7.6 g/t Au
- 9.8 g/t Au
- 12.9 g/t Au
- 22.6 g/t Au
- 54.6 g/t Au
- Of 5 grab samples taken in the general #6 portal area, the best result was 7.7 g/t Au
- The quartz vein/mineralized material zone was intersected in 10 of the 11 holes drilled.
- 51 samples were taken from an estimated 15,000 t stockpile located on the site with an overall average grade of 2.3 g/t Au. Additional mechanical sampling and definition is planned for 2018 in order to better define the economic viability of mining this material.
- The Company has retained the services of Giroux Consultants Ltd. Principal, Gary Giroux, P.Eng. will work closely with TerraLogic personnel to produce a NI 43-101 Resource Report for the Alpine Project.
- Going forward the Company will be preparing a permit application for the extraction of a bulk sample from the existing Alpine workings in 2018.
Notes on analytical techniques
All core was 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 core 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.
