Revival Gold Inc. (TSX-V: RVG) (OTCQB: RVLGF) is pleased to announce the results of a new appraisal of drill results and the recognition of a high-grade core of gold mineralization that is being evaluated for its underground potential at the past-producing Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project located in Idaho, USA.

1 True width is unknown at this time but is estimated to be approximately half of the drilled width. Further details tabled below.
The appraisal was initiated earlier this year in response to Revival Gold’s 2020 drilling results, the relogging of previously drilled core and fresh geological insights developed by the Company’s exploration team led by Vice President Exploration, Steve Priesmeyer, with input from consulting geoscientists, Mira Geosciences Ltd., and Technical Advisors, 2021 Bill Dennis Award Winner, Phil Walford and noted international explorationist, Laurie Curtis. Key findings are as follows:
“Efforts by Revival Gold’s exploration team have resulted in a game-changing development at Beartrack-Arnett. Our previous focus on bulk tonnage mineralization has been transformed with an increased understanding of high-grade gold mineralization on the project. This development opens the possibility for the project hosting a potentially large, high-grade ore body with additional bulk underground mining potential at Joss and elsewhere, as the entire five-kilometer strike length of mineralization along the Panther Creek Shear Zone is open at depth. Revival Gold recently received approval for an additional Plan of Operations to drill in the Joss-Rabbit target area and we will resume drilling there as a priority this spring,” commented President & CEO, Hugh Agro.
High-Grade Drill Intersections
Details for select high-grade drill intersections for the fourteen core holes drilled to-date over approximately 1 kilometer of strike from the south end of the South Pit area through to the south end of the Joss area are presented in the table below:

1 True width is unknown at this time but is estimated to be approximately half of the drilled width. Numbers may not add up due to rounding.
2 Where applicable, grades at Beartrack-Arnett are capped at 8.0 g/t Au using the methodology described in the Technical Report on the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project, Lemhi County, Idaho, USA dated December 17th, 2020.
Figures 1 and 2 below provide plan and sectional views of the new high-grade underground target at Beartrack-Arnett in the Joss area describing the geological setting, collar locations and intercepts for all fourteen drill holes presented in the summary table above.
Permitting and Drilling Plans
Revival Gold recently received approval from the U.S. Forest Service for a new Plan of Operations which will expand the Company’s drilling opportunities in the Joss-Rabbit corridor. The new Plan will provide for an additional 21 drill pad locations and greater flexibility for resource definition.
Future drilling between the south end of the South Pit through Joss will focus on improving confidence in the scale and continuity of mineralization in this area (both horizontally and vertically). Details with respect to the 2021 drilling program will be available in March with drilling expected to resume this spring.

About Revival Gold Inc.
Revival Gold Inc. is a growth-focused gold exploration and development company. The Company is advancing the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project located in Idaho, USA.
Beartrack-Arnett is the largest past-producing gold mine in Idaho. A Preliminary Economic Assessment has been completed for a first phase restart of heap leach operations to produce 72,000 ounces of gold per year over an initial seven-year mine life at an AISC of $1,057 per ounce of gold. Meanwhile, exploration continues, focused on expanding the current Indicated Mineral Resource of 36.6 million tonnes at 1.15 g/t gold containing 1.36 million ounces of gold and Inferred Mineral Resource of 47.1 million tonnes at 1.08 g/t gold containing 1.64 million ounces of gold. The mineralized trend at Beartrack extends for over five kilometers and is open on strike and at depth. Mineralization at Arnett is open in all directions.
For further details, including key assumptions, parameters and methods used to estimate the Mineral Resources, and data verification, please see the Company’s NI 43-101 compliant technical report titled, “Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Heap Leach Operation on the Beartrack Arnett Gold Project, Lemhi County, Idaho, USA – NI 43-101 Technical Report”, dated December 17th, 2020.
