About the Gowganda Gold Project

The project consists of mining claims totaling approximately 3,520 hectares centrally located adjacent to Hwy 560 and the unorganized municipality of Gowganda Ontario in Nicol, Haultain, Milner, and Van Hise townships, Larder Lake Mining Division (the "Property"). The project is focused on Archean greenstone overlain by Proterozoic sediments of the Cobalt Embayment located south of the Round-Lake Batholith in the south-western part of the prolific Abitibi greenstone belt. A short animated video that introduced Aldershot and the Gowganda project may be viewed at: http://iresourcemedia.com/companies/aldershot/.

On November 8, 2016, Aldershot announced that it had entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") with Transition Metals Corp. ("Transition") to earn a 51% interest in the Property. To do so, Aldershot has agreed to fund $400,000 worth of exploration on the Property in year one and must incur cumulative work expenditures totaling $2.0 million by the third anniversary of the Agreement. In addition, Aldershot must issue 1,500,000 common shares of Aldershot to Transition on signing, and provide an additional $450,000 worth of common shares of Aldershot to Transition by the second anniversary date, subject to the TSX Venture Exchange Inc.'s approval, to earn its initial interest.

Upon earning an initial 51% interest, Aldershot may opt to acquire an additional 24% interest in the Property (for a total of 75%) by committing to completing a feasibility study. Upon Aldershot earning its 51% or 75% interest in the Property as the case may be, a joint venture would be formed, with each party obliged to fund work programs on the Property to maintain its respective interest. During the course of the initial stage of the option in the Agreement, Transition has agreed to serve as program operator, dedicating its team and expertise to overseeing work programs funded by Aldershot.

About Aldershot

Aldershot is engaged in the acquisition and exploration of gold properties. The Company relinquished its uranium properties in Utah in 2015 due to the low uranium price and the Company has signed the Agreement with Transition for the Gowganda Gold project as highlighted above.

The mission of Aldershot is to find and develop a gold property to create wealth for shareholders. This is planned to be achieved by identifying quality gold properties and exploring those that have the highest potential for future discoveries, sale or development of existing mineral resources into mineable reserves. On a regular basis management will rationalize all of its core mineral property holdings to maintain percentage ownership by funding the exploration work. Management will sell its properties when it feels value for shareholders has been created and management is able to obtain fair value for the assets.

The Company is a publicly listed corporation whose shares are traded on the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. under the symbol ALZ. The Company's registered office is located at 409 - 221 West Esplanade, North Vancouver, BC, V7M 3J3 and its head office is located at 303 - 1006 Beach Avenue, Vancouver, BC V6E 1T7.
