PRESS RELEASE                                                                                                                       May 23, 2017

  • Drill Hole K16-07 assayed 252.8 g/t (8.13 oz/t) silver over 25 ft. (7.62 m) with intervals within 105 ft. (32 m) mineralized intersection averaging 79.7 g/t (2.56 o/t)

VANCOUVER, Canada – – Viscount Mining Corp. (TSX-V: VML) (OTCQB: VLMGF) (“Viscount” or “the Company”), is pleased to report drill results for all holes twinned in 2016 on the Silver Cliff property in the Hardscrabble Silver District of Custer County, Colorado (the “Property”). The program which commenced in mid-November met its primary objective of confirming the general validity of historical drill intersections of silver mineralization on one of the Silver Cliff deposits known as the Kate Silver Resource (the “KSR”).

The table below displays summary data for Viscount’s 2016 “K” series of 2.5-inch diameter holes (HQ core) along with available data for the historic holes which were twinned, including data from previously unreported Viscount holes K16-07 and K16-09. Because of the presence of strong alteration and locally visible sulphides, an additional 35 feet (122’-157’) from K16-07 and 20 feet (173’-193’) from K16-08 was sampled and sent to ALS Canada Ltd., at their laboratories in Reno, Nevada, and Vancouver, BC., by the Qualified Person (QP) during a site inspection visit from 21 to 25 March 2017.

The silver-bearing strata are attested by the QP to be altered tuffaceous and fragmental rhyolites as described in USGS reports cited below rather than a silicified stromatolite or limestone reef as was reported in the Company’s December 21, 2016 and January 19, 2017 news release quotes. The altered, fragmental and near-horizontal nature can be seen in the two accompanying photos of core from vertical hole K16-03. The marked 97 to 102-foot interval assayed 258.1 g/t (8.3 o/t) Ag, from 102 to 107 feet assayed 693.6 g/t (22.3 o/t) Ag, and from 107 to 112 feet assayed 80.9 g/t (2.6 o/t) Ag. A 55-foot interval of K16-03 core from 57 to 112 feet averaged 141.5 g/t (4.55 o/t) Ag. The true widths of the drill hole intersections cannot be determined from the information available.

K16-3 Box 11

K16-3 Box 12

Future drilling will test the potential for multiple silver-bearing tuffaceous layers because Whitman Cross (USGS, 1896) reported that the shaft of the former Geyser Mine approximately 1 mile southeast of the former Kate Mine provided a “demonstration that stratified rhyolitic tuff and breccia extend to the 2,100-foot level (depth).” In the Geyser shaft, S. F. Emmons (USGS, 1896) stated that “No defined ore-body was found until the 1,850-ft. level was reached. Thin films or stains of metallic sulphides, said to assay high in silver, occurred occasionally in the shaft and in some of the drifts; lining delicate cracks in the tuff.” “The main ore-vein was first found in the 1,850-ft. level, about 300 ft. northwest of the shaft, as a narrow seam.” Emmons reported assays for two carload lots as 1.05% silver and the other 1.27% (300.28 oz/ton). The shaft bottomed in Precambrian granite and gneiss. Please note, under National Instrument 43-101 Standard of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, historical references to “ore” do not satisfy current definitions and require that the mineralized zone referred to as “ore” to be supported by a feasibility study of mineral reserves” or similar.

The first Phase of twin drilling of eight of the historical holes drilled on the Kate deposit resulted in core assay results that strongly suggest it is imperative that Viscount plan a second Phase of drilling in conjunction with a mining engineering company who will chose the number and identify the next set of historical drill holes that they will require to be twinned in order to make a silver resource/reserve estimate according to CIM standards. The new set of twin drill holes will not only help in verifying the historical Prefeasibility Study but will also test possible deeper highly altered rhyolite tuff units for the same grade and type of silver mineralization found in the shallow unit. Viscount is storing all of the drill core, coarse reject and pulp material at the Silver Cliff, Reno (ALS) and Vancouver (ALS) facilities so that they will be available for future metallurgical tests if required. Viscount is very optimistic that the next Phase of drilling will provide the basis for allow the engineering company to prepare a NI43-101 technical report.

About the Silver Cliff Property

The Silver Cliff property lies within the historic Hardscrabble Silver District in Colorado. The Property consists of 96 lode claims where high grade silver, gold and base metal production came from numerous mines during the period 1878 to the early 1900s. It is located 44 miles WSW of Pueblo, Colorado, and has year-around access by paved road. The property underwent substantial exploration between 1967 and 1984. The major explorers were Freeport, Hecla, Homestake, Moly Corp, Coca Mines and Tenneco Minerals.

The property is interpreted to encompass a portion of a large caldera and highly altered sequence of Tertiary rhyolitic flows and fragmental units which offers potential to host deposits with both precious and base metals. This has been demonstrated in the mineralization historically extracted from the numerous underground and surface mining operations.

Drilling in the 1980s by Tenneco resulted in a historical pre-feasibility study which formed the company’s decision to put the property into production. Plans were halted due to the restructuring of Tenneco after it was sold.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) Measures, Chain of Custody

The Company has implemented a QA/QC program using best industry practices at the Silver Cliff Property. Drill core samples are sawn in half lengthwise and one half transported in securely-sealed bags to the ALS laboratory in Reno, Nevada, for analysis. Prior to transport, individual samples are labeled, placed in plastic sample bags and sealed. Groups of samples are then placed into durable rice bags that are then shipped. The sample pulps and rejects will be retrieved from ALS. All samples were analyzed for Ag and 50 other elements by ALS method “Ultra Trace Aqua Regia ICP-MS” with code ME-MS41. In the case of Ag determined by this method to be in excess of 100 ppm, a further analysis for Ag was done utilizing method “Ore Grade Aqua Regia ICP-AES” with ALS code Ag-OG46. For the three 5-ft interval samples from K16-01 containing more than 1,500 ppm Ag, the ALS method “Ag 30g FA – GRAV finish WST-SIM” with code Ag- GRA21 was utilized.

Viscount Mining Identifies Promising Gold and Silver Exploration Targets At Cherry Creek, Nevada

PRESS RELEASE                                                                                                                     May 1, 2017

VANCOUVER, Canada – – Viscount Mining Corp. (TSX-V: VML) (OTCQB: VLMGF) (“Viscount” or “the Company”), is pleased to announce the identification of promising gold and silver exploration targets on its 100%-owned Cherry Creek project in northwestern White Pine County, Nevada.

Viscount’s Cherry Creek property has a long history of gold, silver, lead, zinc and tungsten production from high-grade veins and replacement deposits. This included production from the Blue Bird, Fillmore, Last Chance, Exchequer/New Century Mine, Star, Ticup and Motherlode mines. In addition to the historic mines, recent exploration in the Flint Canyon area of the Cherry Creek property recognized stratigraphic, structural and geochemical characteristics that are similar to those at sediment-hosted gold mines in eastern Nevada, including Newmont’s Long Canyon Mine and Pilot Gold’s Kinsley Mountain Mine.

Now, new data collected by Summit Mining Exploration Inc. (Summit) on the Cherry Creek property shows several areas with strong gold and silver exploration potential that have not yet been adequately tested by focused geologic work or drilling.

In December 2016, Summit completed the second full year of an evaluation program that was part of fulfilling an earn-in agreement on the Cherry Creek project. The Summit program included comprehensive geologic mapping of the claim block, extensive soil and rock-chip sampling, and two distinct programs of reverse-circulation exploration drilling. Viscount has now received all of the high-quality data from the Summit program, including: geologic maps, multi-element analyses of the surface samples and drill cuttings, lithologic logs from the drill holes, and accompanying digital maps and databases. The data also included subsurface interpretations and comprehensive summary reports prepared by the Summit exploration team, which included geologists from Rangefront Geological of Elko, NV. The Summit program identified several areas with favorable geologic settings and geochemical signatures that were not further evaluated. The acquisition of the Summit database allows Viscount geologists to delineate areas with strong exploration potential that have not been fully exploited.

Viscount Director and senior geologist, Mark Abrams said, “Summit conducted a very solid program on which we can build. The geology of the Cherry Creek district remains very permissive for finding precious and base metal deposits and we intend to advance the project forward utilizing our knowledge of the district and surrounding areas, and our extensive database.”

Viscount is currently vetting the following exploration target areas for further work in 2017:

Flint Canyon

The Flint Canyon area was the focal point of the Summit 2016 exploration program. It is on the northwest side of the claim block, three kilometers west of the historic mining district. The Flint Canyon area had no historic production and displays very little evidence of modern exploration. Rock-chip and soil sampling identified widespread anomalous gold in jasperoid and silicified breccias, primarily along the contact between Marjum limestone and Dunderberg Shale, but also locally along the Notch Peak Limestone/Pogonip Formation contact. Elevated levels of gold in rock-chip samples were commonly on the order of 0.1–0.5 g/t, although were locally as high as 4 g/t Au. The stratigraphic section and geochemical signature encountered at Flint Canyon resembles those at the two currently operating mines in the region. Sediment-hosted gold mineralization at the Newmont Long Canyon Mine occurs near the Pogonip-Notch Peak contact. At the Pilot Gold Kinsley Mine, the primary zone of oxidized disseminated gold mineralization occurs along the contact between the Dunderberg Shale and Hamburg Formation (Marjum equivalent).

Summit conducted a 32-hole reverse-circulation drilling program in the fall of 2016 designed to test surface gold anomalies on the west side of the Flint Canyon gold anomaly. Drill holes encountered anomalous gold in several stratigraphic positions. In general, the strongest gold concentrations occurred in near-surface silicified zones in the Marjum limestone. Elevated gold concentrations also occurred in local silicified zones along the Dunderberg/Marjum contact, in collapse breccias and silicified strata in the Pogonip Formation, and in silicified breccia in undifferentiated dolomite. Intercepts with the highest gold grades were commonly between 5 and 30 meters thick with average concentrations between 0.1 and 0.4 g/t Au. The maximum gold concentration encountered in the program was 4.03 g/t in a 3-meter thick sample of strongly altered dike.

The lack of disturbance from historic mines and the absence of existing roads through the Flint Canyon anomaly greatly influenced the 2016 drilling program. The targets on the west side of project area were tested because they required the least of amount of new road to be built for access, which expedited the permitting process with the BLM. Strong exploration targets defined by structure, stratigraphy, and gold in surface samples are scattered throughout the Flint Canyon anomaly, which covers an area approximately two kilometers long and one kilometer wide. Future exploration programs in the area will process existing data, acquire new data, rate the targets, and determine the best methods to access the strongest targets for exploration drilling.

Silver Canyon

The Silver Canyon area had historic silver production in the northeast corner of the claim block. Recent exploration was limited to geologic mapping at a scale of 1:2500 and scattered rock-chip sampling. The historic mines produced high-grade silver from jasperoid breccia zones along the contact between Dunderberg Shale and Marjum limestone. Rock-chip samples collected in the Summit program from the Silver Canyon (Blowout Mine) ore zones had silver concentrations in the 200‐500 g/t range, and commonly displayed weakly anomalous gold.

In addition to the historic silver mines, the Silver Canyon area displays structural and stratigraphic similarities to the Flint Canyon area. A thick section of Dunderberg Shale crops out with strong local jasperoid development along the lower contact with the Marjum limestone. The Dunderberg/Marjum section in Silver Canyon is truncated on the south by the Black Metal Fault that displays approximately 2 to 3 kilometers of strike-slip displacement and is commonly associated with mineralization throughout the Cherry Creek property. Several scattered rock-chip samples from altered limestone on the south side of the Black Metal Fault contained elevated gold concentrations, with a maximum of 0.74 g/t Au. Additional geologic mapping and geochemical sampling could identify viable gold and silver exploration drill targets in Silver Canyon.

Ticup-Doctor’s Cut-Jacob’s Cut Areas

Geologic mapping and surface geochemical data from the Summit program identified several gold and silver exploration target areas in the Ticup-Doctor’s Cut-Jacob’s Cut area (Viscount news release, August 5, 2015). The Ticup Mine was the richest historic silver producer in the district. In 2015, Summit conducted a limited, 12-hole reverse-circulation exploration drilling program to test some of those targets. Drill holes encountered elevated silver concentrations in projected extensions of the Ticup ore zone, which is a steeply-dipping silicified breccia along the contact of the Swasey Limestone and Wheeler Shale. The silver intercepts were commonly between 6 and 12 meters thick and contained silver concentrations between 40 and 117 g/t, with a maximum silver grade of 506 g/t in a 3-meter interval. In addition to the Ticup targets, a drill hole that tested a down-dip extension of exposed silver-bearing siltstone at the Doctor’s Cut intersected a 27-meter zone with an average grade of 52 g/t Ag. Similarly, a hole that tested a projected extension of silver mineralization exposed in the Jacob’s Cut encountered a 30-meter interval of Swasey Limestone with an average concentration of 50 g/t Ag. The results of the 2015 drilling program were discussed in a Viscount news release from February 4, 2016. Surface geochemistry and subsurface geologic interpretations indicate that additional drilling in this area could extend the mineralized zones and possibly increase the grade of the silver encountered in the holes.

Exchequer-Grey Eagle-Star

The historic Exchequer, Grey Eagle, and Star mines produced gold and silver from high-grade vein deposits on the eastern side of the Cherry Creek property. Recent work in this area included geologic mapping and surface sampling, as well as the review of historic underground maps and assay data. This data indicates that the mineralized zone in the Exchequer Mine could extend beyond the historic mine workings and that a potential intersection of the Grey Eagle and Star veins occurs at depth in an unexplored area between the two mines. Future exploration drilling could test these concepts.

Lead Mine Canyon

Mapping south of Flint Canyon drill area identified a frontier gold exploration target in Lead Mine Canyon. The target lies in a 250 x 75 meter exposure of Marjum siltstone. Pods of jasperoid and coarse calcite occur along the limestone/siltstone contact and in minor faults that cut the contact. Four samples of jasperoid from those silicified zones contained gold values between 0.283 and 1.085 g/t. Soil samples from the siltstone commonly contained elevated gold values between 0.02 and 0.1 g/t, with one sample containing 0.5 g/t. As part of the vetting process, Viscount geologists will be examining this area to determine if it will be included in the 2017 exploration program.

Future Exploration Program For 2017

Viscount Mining is planning for an exploration drilling program to test the strongest of the gold and silver exploration targets delineated by the recent evaluation program, as outlined above. In addition, joint venture partners will be sought to assist in the future exploration of this extensive, highly-prospective property.
Dr. Jamie Robinson, Viscount Senior Consulting Geologist, stated, “The comprehensive, high-quality data collected in the Summit exploration program will allow focused evaluation of gold and silver targets located on the large Cherry Creek claim block, which displays widespread mineral occurrences in a variety of geologic settings.”

Viscount Mining Strengthens Technical Advisory Board with Senior Geologist

PRESS RELEASE                                                                                                                           April 18, 2017

Viscount Mining Strengthens Technical Advisory Board with Senior Geologist

VANCOUVER, Canada –- Viscount Mining Corp. (TSX-V: VML) (OTCQB: VLMGF) (“Viscount” or “the Company”), is pleased to announce that geologist James P. Robinson, Ph.D., has consented to join the Company’s technical advisory board. As advisor to Viscount’s technical board he will be called on to provide insights based on his deep knowledge of Nevada, structural geology, precious-metals deposit models, and exploration techniques.

Recently, Dr. Robinson was a senior consulting geologist for Summit Mining Exploration, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation and was involved with all aspects of the initial two-year evaluation program of Viscount Mining’s Cherry Creek property. His responsibilities included comprehensive geologic mapping, geochemical sampling, drill target generation, drilling supervision, and subsurface interpretations.

Dr. Robinson has over 35 years of experience as a professional geologist, including approximately 30 years in precious metal exploration. Most of his mineral experience has focused on frontier and early-stage exploration in the eastern and southern Basin and Range of Nevada and Utah. This included managing successful exploration programs for Alta Gold Company, Pilot Gold Company, DNI Metals, and Battle Mountain Exploration Company. Dr. Robinson was instrumental in the development of the Alta Gold Griffon Mine from grassroots discovery through production and the Alta Gold Kinsley Mine from development drilling to the discovery of several satellite deposits.

Dr. Robinson holds a Ph.D. in Geological Sciences from Cornell University, an M.S. in Geology from the University of Southern California, and a B.S. in Geology from Ohio University. He is a Registered Professional Geologist in the states of Utah, Idaho, and Arizona.

Dr. Robinson stated, “I am very pleased to join the Company’s advisory board. With my time on the Cherry Creek project, I feel it represents a rare opportunity in eastern Nevada to be the first modern comprehensive exploration program to evaluate a mining district with historic production of gold, silver, tungsten and base metals. In addition to the high-grade veins and replacement deposits exploited in the historic mines, recent geologic mapping, sampling, and limited drilling identified disseminated sediment-hosted gold in a previously unexplored area of Cherry Creek. The stratigraphic section, geochemical signature, and structural and igneous history of the sediment-hosted gold occurrence at Cherry Creek shares characteristics with modern gold mines in the general vicinity, including the Newmont Long Canyon Mine and Pilot Gold Kinsley Mountain Mine. Subsequent exploration will further delineate gold anomalies defined by recent field work and greatly enhance the potential of finding an economic gold deposit in the subsurface.”

Kaare Foy, Chairman of Viscount stated, “Dr. Robinson will collaborate closely with Viscount’s management to provide guidance and recommendations to help Viscount set the direction of the company’s roadmap and strategic initiatives at Cherry Creek as the company accelerates exploration and development plans.”
