EL DORADO CONTINUES TO GROW WITH NEW RESULTS
EXTENDING BROAD HIGH-GRADE ZONE AT DEPTH
Significant widths and grades returned in multiple holes outside current resource
model, highlighting strong growth potential
A high-grade zone of mineralisation has been identified at depth outside of the current Mineral Resource at El Dorado, with key assay results including:
11m @ 11.38g/t Au from 196m including 5m @ 23.34g/t Au from 200m in KNC190105;
9m @ 4.71g/t Au from 173m including 5m @ 7.63g/t Au from 175m in KNCD190090;
10m @ 5.77g/t Au from 164m including 6m @ 8.03g/t Au from 166m in KNC190100*;
28m @ 13.59g/t Au from 176m including 6m @ 57.7g/t Au from 176m in KNC190079*.
*Previously reported holes on 3 December 2019 (KNC190100) and 8th October 2019 (KNC190079)
Assays pending from recently completed diamond drill holes, with follow-up Reverse Circulation drilling underway to test the mineralisation to the south.
Exploration drilling for 2020 has commenced across the 3.02Moz Bardoc Gold Project.
Bardoc Gold Limited (ASX: BDC, Bardoc or the Company) is pleased to report further outstanding drilling results from the El Dorado Deposit within its 100%-owned3.02Moz Bardoc Gold Project, located 50km north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
Assay results from Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling completed before Christmas have confirmed the continuity of a broad zone of high-grade mineralisation directly below the current Mineral Resource, correlating with recently reported results and indicating an increasing grade profile at depth.
The ongoing success at El Dorado highlights the opportunity to increase gold resources at previously under- explored satellite deposits within the Bardoc Project.
The Company's multi-targeted exploration and drilling program resumed this week, targeting further resource growth and discovery opportunities across the project area to support a project-wide resource update later this year.
In the meantime, work is well advanced on a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) based on the current 3.02Moz Mineral Resource and is on track to be finalised and reported to the market in Q1 2020.

Results from recent Reverse Circulation (RC) and diamond drilling (DD) at the El Dorado Deposit have defined a high-grade core of the mineralisation approximately 170m below surface which is interpreted as an extension to higher grade zones observed in the recently updated Mineral Resource.
New and recently reported results from this high-grade area include:
11m @ 11.38g/t Au from 196m including5m @ 23.34g/t Au from 200m in KNC190105;
9m @ 4.71g/t Au from 173m including5m @ 7.63g/t Au from 175m in KNCD190090;
19m @ 5.77g/t Au from 164m including6m @ 8.03g/t Au from 166m in KNC190100 (reported in the ASX announcement of 3/12/2109); and
28m @ 13.59g/t Au from 176m including6m @ 57.7g/t Au from 176m in KNC190079 (reported in the ASX announcement of ASX 8/10/2019).
The new results suggest that the grade profile is improving at depth, providing a series of high-quality targets for additional follow-up drilling.
A number of assay results from diamond drilling completed in late 2019 are still pending. These are expected shortly and will be reported in due course. RC drilling resumed at the start of this week targeting extensions of the mineralisation to the south. Once this round of RC drilling is completed in the next few days, the RC rig will move to Mayday North.

Diamond core drilling at the 79koz Mayday North Deposit is scheduled to re-commence this week and will operate in parallel with the RC rig once it has relocated from El Dorado. The combined drilling effort will expedite exploration results from this newly acquired resource.
Bardoc Gold's Chief Executive Officer, Mr Robert Ryan, said the impressive results being generated by deeper drilling at El Dorado are another reminder of the substantial exploration upside across the 3.02Moz Bardoc Project, and reflected the success of the Company's targeted exploration approach.
"The latest results from El Dorado show there is a high-grade core to the mineralisation outside the current resource model. We have also seen grades improving with depth, which has given us the confidence to remobilise the RC drill rig to target further extensions while we await assays from the remainder of the 2019 drill program.
"As gold reaches new record highs in Australian dollar terms of over $2,300/ounce, Bardoc's strategy of building a sizeable, high-quality resource in Australia's premier gold mining district has positioned the company well to become a sustainable gold producer.
"PFS studies are progressing well with results expected later this quarter and, while our cornerstone deposits at Aphrodite, Zoroastrian and Excelsior are the focus of this study, our recent exploration successes show there is still significant upside to our plan."
Exploration drilling with both an RC and diamond rig will continue both to extend and increase the confidence in the Company's Mineral Resources.
Assay results from the under-explored North Kanowna Star prospect are expected shortly.
WA Sate Govt EIS co-funded drilling at the Black Flag Fault is being logged and interpreted.
BARDOC GOLD PROJECT - BACKGROUND
The Bardoc Gold Project was formed in October 2018 following completion of the merger between Excelsior Gold and Spitfire Materials, bringing together significant resources and excellent potential for growth. The Project runs contiguously north for 40km in the Eastern Goldfields. There are four main deposits and a multitude of smaller projects within the 250km2 landholding, providing a large Resource base and excellent exploration potential within the prolific Norseman-Wiluna greenstone belt and junction of the Bardoc Tectonic Zone (BTZ) and the Black Flag Fault (BFF).
These two deep-seated crustal structures host many multi-million-ounce deposits, including the world- renowned Golden Mile in Kalgoorlie.
