Gold Standard Moves to Resource Estimation at Pinion Oxide Gold Deposit, Carlin Trend Nevada

Last three Phase 1 holes include intercepts of 47.1m of 0.79 g Au/t, 19.8m of 0.88 g Au/t and 25.9m of 0.57 g Au/t

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Gold Standard Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE: GSV)(NYSE MKT: GSV) ("Gold Standard" or the "Company") today announced assay results of the final three 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 initial 13 hole drill program: verifying historical drill data, expanding the known limits of the gold mineralization and demonstrating the predictability of GSV's new geological model. Data collected during the Phase 1 program, and ongoing geological activities, will enable the completion of the first NI43-101 compliant resource estimate at Pinion, which is expected during the third quarter.

Drilling highlights include:


--  PIN14-10, an RC infill hole between historic RC holes SB-123 (9.2m of
    1.00 g Au/t) and SB-072 (18.3m of 0.44 g Au/t), returned 25.9m of 0.57 g
    Au/t.
--  PIN14-12, a core hole in the North Zone, returned 47.1m of 0.79 g Au/t.
    This hole successfully twinned and verified results from historical RC
    hole CPR-30 (51.8m of 0.74g Au/t).
--  PIN14-13, a 65m easterly RC stepout from SB-073 (18.3m of 1.64 g Au/t),
    returned 19.8m of 0.88g Au/t. This oxidized mineralization remains open
    in multiple directions.

Key Observations:


--  The targeted multilithic, dissolution collapse breccia host was
    intersected in all thirteen Phase 1 drill holes. Gold mineralization in
    these holes 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 (click the following link for Pinion Phase 1
    drill hole map and cross section: http://goldstandardv.com/proposed-
    pinion-holes/).
--  Gold bearing intercepts in PIN14-10 and PIN14-13 expanded the lateral
    extent of the breccia hosted gold zone and demonstrate the upside
    exploration potential for continuous oxidized 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.

Drill results are as follows:

(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.

In addition to the Phase 1 results, Gold Standard has been systematically collecting and compiling geologic data for the Pinion deposit. Since purchasing and consolidating the remaining portion of the Pinion gold deposit (see Gold Standard news release dated March 5, 2014) GSV geologists have relogged 174 historic RC and core holes, completed 21 east-west and 6 north-south cross sections, collected 171 samples for specific gravity determinations from 12 historic and four Gold Standard core holes, and completed detailed geologic mapping of the Pinion area. These technical data have been delivered to APEX Geoscience of Edmonton, Alberta for completion of an initial NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate. Completion of this work is expected in the third quarter.

Mac Jackson, Gold Standard's Vice President of Exploration stated, "These drill results from our Phase 1 program at Pinion give us tremendous confidence that our new geologic model and database will support our primary goal of generating a NI 43-101 resource estimate. Equally as important, our detailed geological and geophysical work has resulted in the identification of several new targets, showing Pinion to be a strong gold system with upside potential and room to grow in multiple directions. We are excited to begin Phase 2 drilling and test these new targets as soon as we receive the resource estimate from our independent consultants."

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.
