Kelly Creek Drill Rig

Drill Rig at Kelly Creek

Vancouver, BC, Canada — Austin Gold Corp. (“Austin” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: AUST) is pleased to announce that it has drilled four rotary-reverse circulation holes totalling 1062 m (3485 ft) at its Kelly Creek Project, Humboldt County, Nevada. The holes targeted anomalous gold values in shallow historical drill holes in an area of thin Quaternary alluvium cover. All holes intersected rocks that may host gold mineralization similar to the deposits at the nearby Marigold and Lone Tree mines. The Company is waiting for assay results. Austin Gold is also permitting two of its other projects for drilling programs. At Fourmile Basin, Nye County, Nevada, the permitting process with the United States Forest Service on the northern part of the property for drill road and site construction is ongoing. In the southern part of the property, Austin will soon submit a permit application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for access and drilling. Permitting with the BLM can be quicker than with the Forest Service, and Austin expects to have this permit within one to two months. Subject to drill rig availability, Austin plans to drill on the BLM land this autumn or early winter. At Stockade Mountain, Malheur County, Oregon, Austin is permitting with the BLM and the State of Oregon a drilling program designed to test beneath the known high-level gold/silver-bearing stockworks mineralization for high-grade vein deposits formed deeper in the hydrothermal system. Receipt of the necessary permits is expected within one to two months.
