Drilling Extends Vein Structures: Results Include 26.5 g/t Gold and 97.71 g/t Silver Over 1 ft.

"These new results show that the Block 93 vein has significant vertical and horizontal extent," commented Murray Nye, CEO and Director of Winston Gold Mining.

Winston Gold Mining Corp. (“Winston Gold” or the “Corporation”) (CSE:WGC)(CSE:WGC.CN)(OTCQB:WGMCF) is
pleased to announce drilling has extended the strike length of the
Block 93 vein structure farther to the west. The vein now has been
traced over a strike length of about 246 ft. (75 metres), and to a
vertical extent of 192 ft. (58.5 metres) on the Company’s wholly-owned
Winston Gold Property near Helena Montana.

“These new results show that the Block 93 vein has
significant vertical and horizontal extent,” commented Murray Nye, CEO
and Director of Winston Gold Mining. “A number of previously unknown
veins were also encountered in both the hanging wall and foot wall of
the Block 93 structure. However, it is still too early to speculate if
these veins are continuous and/or related to that vein structure.”

Previously announced drill results (March 1st, 2017)
confirmed the existence of two high grade veins dubbed the Parallel and
Block 93 veins. These veins were identified from historic drill data
from the 1980’s.

A total of six new holes were collared on a drill pad,
located about 80 ft. (24.4 metres) southeast from the spot where holes
W1727, W1728 and W1729 were collared. These new holes were drilled in a
fan configuration and were designed to extend the strike length of the
Block 93 vein structure.

The holes tested an additional 198 ft. (60.3 metres) strike
length of the Block 93 Vein. Refer to attached drill plan map.
Highlights of the Results include:

  • Hole W65 intersected three veins in the footwall
    (beneath) the Block 93 vein. The first intersection cut 1 ft. (0.3
    metres) averaging 0.121 opt (4.15 g/t) gold and 0.46 opt (15.77 g/t)
    silver starting 77 ft. (23.5metres) down-hole. No previously known vein
    is associated with it. The hole also intersected 0.5 ft. (0.15 metre)
    averaging 0.235 opt (8.06 g/t) gold and 0.23 opt (7.89 g/t) silver 164.5
    ft. (50.1 metres) down-hole. This too is still in the footwall of Block
    93. Unfortunately there were no significant intercepts in the Block 93
    vein. This may be a result of the nugget effect in the vein system.

  • Hole W66 hit another previously unknown vein in the
    hanging wall (above) the Block 93 vein. At a depth of 311 ft (94.8
    metres) the hole cut a 4 ft. (1.22 metres) interval averaging 0.223 opt
    (7.65 g/t) gold. This included a 1 ft (0.3 metre) section that averaged
    0.773 opt (26.5 g/t) gold and 2.85 opt (97.71 g/t) silver. The actual
    Block 93 intercept was at a depth of 277.5 ft (84.58 metres) down-hole
    and averaged 0.368 opt (12.62 g/t) gold and 0.95 opt (32.57 g/t) silver
    over a 1 ft (0.3 metre) interval.

  • Hole W67 intersected 2 ft (0.61 metres) averaging
    0.116 opt (3.98 g/t gold) and 0.14 opt (4.80 g/t) silver starting 300 ft
    (91.4 metres) down hole. This is believed to be part of the Block 93

  • Hole W68 intersected 3 ft (0.91 metres) averaging
    0.164 opt (5.62 g/t) gold starting 91 ft. (27.7 metres) down-hole. This
    included a 1.3 ft. (0.4 metre) interval averaging 0.312 opt (10.70 g/t)
    gold and 0.53 opt (18.17 g/t) silver. This is a vein in the footwall of
    Block 93 and is possibly associated with the intercept in W65. Further
    down-hole at a depth of 310.5 ft. (94.6 metres) the drill cut a 3.5 ft.
    (1.07 metre) interval averaging 0.284 opt (9.74 g/t) gold. This included
    a 1.5 ft (0.46 metre) section that averaged 0.436 opt (14.95 g/t) gold
    and 0.53 opt (18.17 g/t) silver. This is believed to be the Block 93

  • Hole W70 intersected a 1.5 ft (0.46 metre) interval
    averaging 0.674 opt (23.11 g/t) gold and 0.55 opt (18.86 g/t) silver
    starting 325.5 ft down-hole. This is believed to be the Block 93 vein.
    Assays results are still pending in this hole for samples taken on
    either side of this vein.

Refer to chart below for details of the drill holes discussed
in this release. The dips of the veins are currently unknown at this
time so true width cannot be accurately determined.

The Winston Gold Project is central to a historic precious
and base metal mining district in which most of the ore was mined from
tightly structurally controlled high angle fissure veins and
lode/replacement zones. Reports indicate that more than 100,000 ounces
of gold was recovered from these underground mines in the late 19th to
early 20th century from about 150,000 tons of ore. (Earle, 1964; Schell,

Sampling Methodology, Chain of Custody, Quality Control and Quality Assurance

All sampling was conducted under the supervision of the
Company’s project geologists and the chain of custody from the drill to
the on-site sample preparation facility was continuously monitored. The
samples are crushed, pulverized and the sample pulps digested and
analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion and a 50 gram gravimetric
finish. Blank or certified reference materials are inserted randomly.
Check Assays are sent to Bureau Veritas Minerals, in Reno Nevada.
