Osisko Intersects 61.8 g/t Au Over 2.5 Metres at Lynx

Lynx 4 Extended 235 Metres to NE

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 10/12/17 -- Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX:OSK) ("Osisko" or the "Corporation") is pleased to provide new results from the ongoing drill program at its 100% owned Windfall Lake gold project located in Urban Township, Abitibi, Quebec. The 800,000 metre drill program combines definition, expansion and exploration drilling in and around the main Windfall gold deposit and the adjacent Lynx deposit (located immediately NE of Windfall). Significant new analytical results from 19 intercepts in 11 drill holes focused on infill and expansion drilling in the Lynx deposit are presented below.

Highlights from the new results include: 61.8 g/t Au over 2.5 metres in OSK-W-17-953; 21.2 g/t Au over 4.3 metres in OSK-W-17-1169; 16.9 g/t Au over 4.0 metres in OSK-W-17-1190; and 29.8 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-17-881. Maps showing hole locations and full analytical results are available at www.osiskomining.com.

Both intervals correlate to Lynx 4. The first interval is a felsic porphyritic dike crosscutting the hosting rhyolite. The mineralization is composed of up to 15% pyrite stringers and pyrite-tourmaline stringers. The second interval is composed of semi-massive pyrite and trace of sphalerite hosted in a strongly silicified rhyolite.

OSK-W-17-1190 intersected two intervals: 11.0 g/t Au over 2.5 metres and 16.9 g/t Au over 4.0 metres (including 57.2 g/t Au over 0.7 metres). The mineralization in both intervals is composed of up to 10% disseminated pyrite and quartz-tourmaline veins. The first interval is within a strongly sericitized rhyolite, and the second interval is at the contact between a rhyolite and a felsic porphyritic dike. Both intersections correlate to the Lynx 4 corridor 300 meters up plunge of OSK-W-17-827 (57.0 g/t Au over 2.7 metres previously reported July 25, 2017).

Qualified Person

The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed, prepared and approved by Mr. Louis Grenier, M.Sc.A., P.Geo. (OGQ 800), Project Manager of the Windfall Lake gold project, who is a "Qualified Person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101").

Quality Control and Reporting Protocols

True widths determinations are estimated at 65-80% of the reported core length intervals for most of the zones. Assays are uncut except where indicated. Intercepts occur within geological confines of major zones but have not been correlated to individual vein domains at this time. Reported intervals include minimum weighted averages of 3.0 g/t Au diluted over core lengths of at least 2.0 metres. All NQ core assays reported were obtained by either 1-kilogram screen fire assay or standard 50-gram fire-assaying-AA finish or gravimetric finish at ALS Laboratories in Val d'Or, Quebec, Thunder Bay and Sudbury, Ontario or Vancouver, British Colombia or Bureau Veritas in Timmins, Ontario. The 1-kilogram screen assay method is selected by the geologist when samples contain coarse gold or present a higher percentage of pyrite than surrounding intervals. Selected samples are also analyzed for multi-elements, including silver, using an Aqua Regia-ICP-AES method at ALS Laboratories. Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control ("QA/QC") and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for QA/QC purposes by the Corporation as well as the lab. Approximately 5% of sample pulps are sent to secondary laboratories for check assay.

About the Windfall Lake Gold Deposit

The Windfall Lake gold deposit is located between Val-d'Or and Chibougamau in the Abitibi region of Quebec, Canada. The mineral resource defined by the previous operator comprises 2,762,000 tonnes at 8.42 g/t Au (748.000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,512,000 tonnes at 7.62 g/t Au (860,000 ounces) in the inferred category (sourced from a technical report dated June 10, 2015 entitled "Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Windfall Lake Gold Property, Quebec, Canada" with an effective date of April 28, 2015, prepared in accordance with NI 43-101). The Windfall Lake gold deposit is currently one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1.400 metres long. The deposit is well defined from surface to a depth of 500 metres, and remains open along strike and at depth. Mineralization has been identified only 30 metres from surface in some areas and as deep as 870 metres in others, with significant potential to extend mineralization up and down-plunge and at depth.
