Sage Commencing 9,200 Metre Clavos Drill Program, Appoints New Director and Grants Options

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/20/17 -- Sage Gold Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SGX) is pleased to announce the commencement of an underground diamond drill program at its Clavos gold property located 32 kms east north east of Timmins, Ontario in the prolific East Timmins Gold Camp. The Company has awarded the drilling contract to Cabo Drilling Corp. and they are expected to mobilize from their Kirkland Lake base of operations during the fourth week of April.

The 9,200 metre program will consist of three phases of work outlined as follows: Phase 1: Stope Definition Drilling - 5,300 metres; Phase 2: Resource Upgrade Drilling - 2,400 metres; Phase 3: Exploration Drilling - 1,500 metres.

Stope Definition Drilling (Phase 1) will initially start on the 100 metre level East, then proceed to the 150 metre East level, the 150 metre West level and 175 metre level as the dewatering and rehabilitation work permits. This work will guide the planning of stopes for mining of the "Main Mine Trend" of the Clavos deposit hosting significant mineralization in the Contact, Hangingwall (HW), Footwall (FW) and Sediment Zones.

Resource Upgrade Drilling (Phase 2) and Exploration Drilling (Phase 3) are optimized from the 225 metre level and 285 metre levels respectively. These levels are expected to be serviced such that electric hydraulic diamond drills capable of drilling holes up to 400 metres deep can be mobilized by early summer. The prime target area for the Phase 3 drilling exists below the 300 metre level is supported by a grade/thickness geological model. This new model will be upgraded with results and interpretations from the 2017 surface drilling program and disclosed in a separate press release.

Nigel Lees, President and CEO commented, "We are making good progress dewatering and rehabilitating the underground workings at Clavos. Currently we have dewatered 140 metres and are on budget and on time. Drill results from the surface exploration program recently completed are expected shortly."

Forward-looking statements include estimates and statements with respect to the Company's future plans, objectives or goals, to the effect that the Company or management expects a stated condition or result to occur. Since forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results relating to, among other things, results of exploration, metallurgical processing, project development, reclamation and capital costs of the Company's mineral properties, and the Company's financial condition and prospects, could differ materially from those currently anticipated in such statements for many reasons such as, but are not limited to: failure to identify mineral resources; failure to convert estimated mineral resources to reserves; the preliminary nature of metallurgical test results; delays in obtaining or failures to obtain required governmental, environmental or other project approvals; political risks; uncertainties relating to the availability and costs of financing needed in the future; changes in equity markets, inflation, changes in exchange rates; fluctuations in commodity prices; delays in the development of projects; capital and operating costs varying significantly from estimates and the other risks involved in the mineral exploration and development industry; and those risks set out in the Company's public documents filed on SEDAR.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
