Fortitude Gold Drills 3.05 Meters Grading 6.81 g/t Gold Within 27.43 Meters Grading 1.49 g/t Gold From Surface at East Camp Douglas North

Colorado Springs, Colorado – January 22, 2024 – Fortitude Gold Corp. (OTCQB: FTCO) (the “Company”) announced multiple wide, high-grade surface and near surface gold drill intercepts at its East Camp Douglas North target.  Intercepts include 3.05 meters grading 6.81 grams per tonne (g/t) gold within 27.43 meters grading 1.49 g/t gold from surface, 7.62 meters grading 1.96 g/t gold within 12.19 meters grading 1.45 g/t gold, and 3.05 meters grading 5.71 g/t gold within 9.14 meters grading 2.40 g/t gold.  Fortitude Gold is a gold producer, developer, and explorer with operations in Nevada, U.S.A. offering investors exposure to both gold production and dividend yield.

East Camp Douglas North drill highlights include (m=meters, g/t=grams per tonne) (full drill table below):

This reverse circulation drill program builds on the Company’s December 2023 drill results at East Camp Douglas North, which included 1.52 meters grading 23.00 g/t gold within 4.57 meters grading 8.80 g/t gold and 18.29 meters grading 1.02 g/t gold (click here to review the December 2023 press release).  Historic third-party drilling along with the Company’s 2023 exploration and drill programs have defined high-grade gold at East Camp Douglas North and this recent drill program adds to the current geologic model. 

“It is exciting to continue to intercept significant surface and near surface gold at East Camp Douglas North,” stated Mr. Allan Turner, Vice President of Exploration for Fortitude Gold.  “Hole locations were based on detailed surface mapping and sampling campaigns that were performed in 2023.  The surface mapping indicates that the structures that host the gold continue along strike into areas not yet drilled.  We are currently updating our geologic model with results from this program and are planning a follow up drill program the first half of 2024.”

“27.43 meters, or 90 feet, of 1.49 grams per tonne gold starting at surface speaks to the exciting potential of our East Camp Douglas property,” stated Mr. Jason Reid, CEO and President of Fortitude Gold.  “Within that wide 27.43 meter intercept from surface is 3.05 meters, or 10 feet, of 6.81 grams per tonne gold.  Other surface and near surface high-grade gold intercepts in both these and past results add critical mass as we strive to understand both the geologic setting and identify mineral potential.  Our goal continues to be the discovery and delineation of several near surface gold deposits that could potentially be mined as open pits.  These numerous high-grade gold intercepts indicate exciting exploration targets for both our northern veins and the larger southern lithocap structure.  High-grade gold intercepts like these, on our district size land position, speak to the exciting potential of East Camp.”
