Gold Standard Continues to Confirm Historical Results and Expand Gold Zones at Pinion

Holes include oxidized intercepts of 20.7m of 1.78 g Au/t, 36.6m of 1.23 g Au/t and 65.5m of 0.90 g Au/t

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/14 -- Gold Standard Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GSV)(NYSE MKT:GSV) ("Gold Standard" or the "Company") today announced assay results of the next five holes from the Pinion Phase 1 drilling program at its 100% owned/controlled Railroad-Pinion Project in Nevada's Carlin Trend. These results continue to meet three key objectives of the drill program: verifying historical drill data, expanding the known limits of the gold mineralization and demonstrating the predictability of GSV's new geological model.

Drilling highlights include:


--  PIN14-06, a core hole in the North Zone, returned three unique zones of
    gold mineralization including 20.7m of 1.78 g Au/t.  
--  PIN14-07, a 35m southeasterly RC step-out from SB-073 (18.3m of 1.64 g
    Au/t), returned 12.2m of 1.23 g Au/t.  
--  PIN14-08, a core hole in the Main Zone, returned 36.6m of 1.23 g Au/t
    with a higher grade interval of 5.0m of 5.62 g Au/t. The hole
    successfully twinned and verified results from historical RC hole TC-008
    (42.6m of 1.13 g Au/t). 
--  PIN14-09, an RC infill hole between historic RC holes TCX-017 (9.1m of
    0.21 g Au/t) and SB-123 (9.1m of 1.00 g Au/t), intersected 15.2m of 0.42
    g Au/t.  
--  PIN14-11, an RC hole in the Main Zone, intersected 65.5m of 0.90 g Au/t
    including 13.7m of 2.51 g Au/t. 

The Phase 1 program, consisting of 13 vertical drill holes, has been completed (click the following link for Pinion Phase 1 drill hole map: http://goldstandardv.com/pinion-drill-plan-july/). Assays are pending for holes PIN14-10, -12 and -13. In addition to the objectives noted above, the program will collect material for density and metallurgical testing in advance of an initial NI-43-101 resource estimation expected in August.

Key Observations:


--  The targeted multilithic, dissolution collapse breccia host was
    intersected in all five drill holes. Gold mineralization is continuous
    and widespread within this highly permeable, silicified, and oxidized
    breccia which is favorably sandwiched between relatively impermeable
    silty micrite of the overlying Mississippian Tripon Pass Formation and
    thick-bedded calcarenite of the underlying Devil's Gate Formation. 
--  Gold bearing intercepts in PIN14-06 and PIN14-11 confirm additional,
    vertically-continuous zones of mineralization that include higher grade
    intervals exceeding 2.0g Au/t. 
--  Gold bearing intercepts in PIN14-07 and PIN14-09 expanded the lateral
    extent of the breccia hosted gold zone and demonstrate the upside
    exploration potential for continuous gold mineralization between the
    North and Main Zones. This area between the zones is characterized by a
    limited number of widely-spaced historic drill holes that tested the
    multilithic, dissolution collapse breccia host.

(ii)  Gold intervals reported in this table were calculated using a 0.20 g  
      Au/t cutoff. Weighted averaging has been used to calculate all        
      reported intervals. True widths are estimated at 85% of drilled       
      thicknesses.                                                          

Mac Jackson, Gold Standard's Vice President of Exploration stated, "We are very pleased with our recent drill results and the exploration potential we are recognizing through ongoing geologic work at Pinion. Results from these five holes indicate that the collapse breccia hosted oxide gold zone at Pinion is very widespread and continuous with the system open in several directions. The intercepts in PIN14-06 and PIN14-11 demonstrate that breccia development and mineralization thicken and strengthen adjacent to high angle fault zones and fault intersections. Gravity, mapping, geochemical sampling, relogging and cross section interpretation have identified additional targets that will be tested in Phase 2 drilling at Pinion."

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 sample preparation facility was continuously monitored. Core 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, quarter core duplicate or certified reference material was inserted approximately every tenth sample. The samples are delivered to ALS Minerals preparation facility in Elko, NV. The samples are crushed and pulverized and sample pulps are 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. All other elements are determined by ICP analysis. 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.
