Gold Standard Reports New Gold Assays from Previously Unassayed Historical Pinion Drill Core

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Gold Standard Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GSV) (NYSE MKT:GSV) (NYSE Amex:GSV) ("Gold Standard" or the "Company") announced today that gold assays of historic Pinion drill holes not previously assayed for gold have yielded positive results including a new interval of 35.4 meters of 1.063 g Au/t (from 13.7 to 49.1 meters) in PN-07-02, and an 8.8 meter extension of an existing gold intercept to 54.3 meters of 0.686 g Au/t (from 43.3 to 97.6 meters) in SB-145. Gold Standard's 100%-owned Pinion Gold Project sits adjacent and immediately to the south of its Railroad Project in Nevada's Carlin Trend.

These shallow core holes were drilled by previous operators in 1996 and 2007 in a roughly north-south alignment for geotechnical and geologic purposes. During Gold Standard's re-logging and data review of the core from 12 core holes obtained in the Pinion acquisition, its geologists identified that 72% of the core had not been assayed for gold. The subsequent new assay data supports two important observations about the Pinion deposit:


--  These results continue to reinforce the significance of collapse breccia
    as a major gold host-a factor which was not apparently known to previous
    operators 
--  PN-07-02 bottomed in oxidized and silicified collapse breccia that
    assayed 1.425 g Au/t, indicating that previous drilling was too shallow
    to adequately test the potential of the lower breccia zone. Furthermore,
    three other holes were not drilled deep enough to intersect the lower
    breccia

All new assay results are summarized below:

(i)Note: The gold intervals reported in the above table are based on a 0.200 g Au/t cutoff. Weighted averaging has been used to calculate all reported intervals. True widths are estimated at 85% of drilled thicknesses.

Gold Standard President and CEO Jonathan Awde noted that the new assays provide important confirmation of the upside potential of the Pinion deposit. "We are certainly pleased to see additional gold mineralization in these holes but we are even more excited to get further confirmation that the historical work apparently did not recognize the nature of the deposit and how it needed to be explored. Clearly, the breccia zone was not the focus of previous exploration efforts as we believe it should have been, and many of the holes were too shallow to intersect this target."

The initiation of re-logging, cross section work and geologic mapping at Pinion has identified a classic, Carlin Trend setting with gold hosted in an oxidized, flat to gently dipping, dissolution collapse breccia. The best existing drill intercepts (e.g., TCT-018: 24m of 4.30 g Au/t from 1.5 - 25.5m; and CPR-110: 67m of 1.06 g Au/t from 12 - 79m) are located in structural highs along west-northwest, north and northwest-striking fault zones. Previously unrecognized, intrusive rocks occur within the deposit and indicate the presence of important deep-seated, through-going conduits. Lateral extent and continuity of gold mineralization is excellent due to the channeling of the gold system within highly permeable collapse breccia sandwiched between relatively impermeable, silty micrite of the overlying Mississippian Tripon Pass Formation and thick bedded, calcarenite of the underlying Devonian Devil's Gate Formation. Geologic work, including cross sections constructed from the re-logging, has progressed through a third of the deposit area, and the model continues to support a very promising, classic Carlin-style picture for the Pinion deposit.

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

All core sampling was conducted under the supervision of the Company's project geologists and the chain of custody was continuously monitored to the sample preparation facility. Core from the SB-series holes was cut at the company's facility in Elko, NV and one half was sent to the lab for analysis and the other half retained in the original core box. A blank or certified reference material was inserted approximately every tenth sample. The core samples and pulp samples from the PN-07 series holes were delivered to ALS Minerals preparation facility in Elko, NV. The core samples were crushed and pulverized and all sample pulps were shipped to ALS Minerals certified laboratory in Vancouver. Pulps are digested and analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish on a 30 gram split. Data verification of the analytical results includes a statistical analysis of the duplicates, standards and blanks that must pass certain parameters for acceptance to insure accurate and verifiable results.

ABOUT GOLD STANDARD VENTURES - Gold Standard is an advanced stage gold exploration focused on district scale discoveries in Nevada. The Company's flagship project, the Railroad-Pinion Gold Project, is located within the prolific Carlin Trend. The recent Pinion gold deposit acquisition offers GSV a potential near-term development option and further consolidates the Company's premier land package in the Carlin Trend. Gold Standard is moving towards building NI 43-101 compliant gold resources at both the near surface, oxide-gold Pinion deposit and the classic Carlin style, North Bullion gold deposit in 2014.
