Galway Metals Inc. (TSX-V:GWM) is pleased to announce that it has purchased 14 additional claims adjacent to its Estrades polymetallic VMS property located in the northern Abitibi of western Quebec, Canada. The claims are located along the Newiska felsic rhyolite horizon that has had intersections such as 1% copper plus 42 g/t silver over 9.4 metres (true width unknown). The acquired claims are located immediately south of the Estrades mine and existing resource, and includes a regional cross fault that may be an important mineralized feature in the camp. Galway’s claims surround the new claims to the north, east and west. As such, the acquisition will allow for a full, uninterrupted gravity geophysical survey that is planned for March, as well as other exploration activities over time, along the full 16km extent of the Company’s Newiska horizon. The newly acquired claims and area of the geophysical surveys can be seen in Figure 1.
In January, Galway began its 13,000-metre drill program for 2018, which will target extensions to the Estrades resource, deep drilling below the resource and drilling at Newiska. Galway currently has three geophysical programs underway or planned during this winter’s exploration program. Results from these three programs will be used, in conjunction with the approximately 200,000 metres of historic drilling, to assist Galway in prioritizing its drill program in the Company’s search for new mineralized intrusives throughout the property. The geophysics will also allow Galway to identify high chargeability anomalies to depths of up to 2,000 metres in the Company’s search for sulphidic-rich source vents below the existing Estrades resource and elsewhere on the 20,000+ hectare property. The three geophysical programs include the following:
The claims were purchased from Radisson Mining Resources Inc. (TSX-V:RDS) for 150,000 Galway Metals shares plus 75,000 share purchase warrants exercisable during a two-year period from the day of closing at $0.50 per warrant. The shares and warrants have a four-month plus one-day hold period. The transaction is subject to TSX-V approval.

Review by Qualified Person, Quality Control and Reports
In compliance with National Instrument 43-101, Mr. Mike Sutton, P.Geo. is the Qualified Person responsible for the accuracy of this news release. The drill core is sawn in half with one half of the core sample shipped to Swastika Laboratories situated in Swastika, ON, which has accreditation of ISO/IEC 17025. The other half of the core is retained for future assay verification. Other QA/QC measures includes the insertion of certified reference standards (gold and polymetallics) and blanks into the sample stream, and the regular re-assaying of pulps and rejects at alternate certified labs. Gold analysis is conducted by fire assay using atomic absorption or gravimetric finish for samples greater than 10 g/Mt gold. Other Metals (Ag, Cu, Pb, Zn, Co, As) have full acid digestion and analyzed by AAS; with over limits (5000 PPM) analyzed by AAS using method dilutions, and the Silver (Ag) over limits (> 200 ppm) analyzed by fire assay (FA) & gravimetric finish. The laboratory re-assays at least 10% of all samples and additional checks may be run on anomalous values.
About the Company
Galway Metals is well capitalized with two mine exploration projects in Canada, Clarence Stream, an emerging gold district in New Brunswick, and Estrades, the former producing, high-grade VMS mine in Quebec. The Company began trading on January 4, 2013, after the successful spinout to existing shareholders from Galway Resources following the completion of the US$340 million sale of that company. With substantially the same management team and Board of Directors, Galway Metals is keenly intent on creating similar value as it had with Galway Resources.
