White Gold Corp. (TSX.V: WGO, OTC - Nasdaq Intl: WHGOF, FRA: 29W) (the 'Company') is pleased to announce it has staked three strategic claim blocks totaling 689 mining claims contiguous to the Company's White Gold property, Newmont Goldcorp Inc.'s Coffee project and Western Copper & Gold's Casino project, all located in the prolific White Gold District, Yukon, Canada.

The claims further extend the Company's land package to the south, with Kodiak & Kirkman claim blocks located approximately 10km south of the Company's White Gold deposit and 10km to the north of Newmont's Coffee deposit, and the Tea claim block located contiguous to the Coffee project to the south. These properties each display similar geological characteristics to the nearby properties which host significant gold deposits. The Claims bring the Company's expansive land package to 21,207 quartz claims across 33 properties, totalling over 422,730 hectares, representing over 40% of the White Gold District. White Gold Corp's fully-funded $13 million 2019 exploration program backed by partners Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (TSX: AEM, NYSE: AEM) and Kinross Gold Corp (TSX: K, NYSE: KGC) includes diamond drilling on the Vertigo target (JP Ross property), Golden Saddle & Arc deposits (White Gold property) as well as soil sampling, prospecting, GT Probe, trenching and RAB/RC drilling on various other properties across the Company's expansive land package located in the prolific White Gold District, Yukon, Canada.

Kodiak & Kirkman Properties

Kodiak is comprised of 111 claims located south and adjacent to the Company's White Gold property and approximately 15km north Newmont's Coffee deposit. Kirkman is comprised of 272 claims extending south of the Kodiak Property, in close vicinity to the Company's White Gold property and approximately 10km north of Newmont's Coffee project and 2 km north of Arcus Development Group Inc.'s Dan Man property.

The Kirkman claims were previously held by Kaminak Gold, who originally discovered the Coffee deposit and was subsequently acquired by Goldcorp for $530M. Historically the properties have only had limited exploration work completed, comprised primarily of soil sampling, geophysical surveys, and minor trenching activity.

The strong soil anomalies and favourable geology, combined with the proximity to the neighboring gold deposits warrant follow up exploration. The anomalies are also alongside the Kirkman Creek which is currently actively mined for placer gold.

Tea Property

The Tea is comprised of 306 claims on a new target area and is located immediately south of Newmont's Coffee project, and adjacent to Western Copper & Gold's Casino project to the east. The Tea property claims were staked based on geologic and geophysical interpretation of the area with the claims covering a previously unexplored regional scale, E-W oriented, structural corridor and receptive host rocks. Placer gold is known to occur within streams draining the area and the geologic and structural framework is similar to that which hosts mineralization on the adjacent Coffee property, and the Company's Betty property approximately 25km to the east.

Live Corporate Update Webinar: Titan Discovery - Thurs Dec 5, 20194PM EST

Shawn Ryan, Chief Technical Advisor, will present a live webcast corporate update with a focus on the Company's Titan discovery.

The recent and first ever drilling on the Titan intercepted 72.81 g/t Au over 6.09m from 10.67m depth, including 136.36 g/t Au over 3.05m, within a 32m zone of mineralization and remains open in all directions(1). The Titan is located on the road-accessible Hen property and consists of a 650m x 650m gold in soil anomaly with multiple other prospective targets that show similar geophysical characteristics to the mineralization encountered in these drill holes. Titan surface exploration results include grab samples of 605 g/t Au, 497 g/t Au, and 113 g/t Au with fine grained visible gold observed, and soil samples of up to 113 g/t Au, the highest ever in the Company's 400,000+ soil sample database(2).

The Company's flagship White Gold property has a mineral resource of 1,039,600 ounces Indicated at 2.26 g/t Au and 508,700 ounces Inferred at 1.48 g/t Au. Mineralization on the Golden Saddle and Arc is also known to extend beyond the limits of the current resource estimate. Regional exploration work has also produced several other prospective targets on the Company's claim packages which border sizable gold discoveries including the Coffee project owned by Newmont Goldcorp Corporation with a M&I gold resource(3) of 3.4M oz and Western Copper and Gold Corporation's Casino project which has P&P gold reserves(3) of 8.9M oz Au and 4.5B lb Cu.
