5.21 g/t Au over 3.05m, including 15.5 g/t Au over 1m at Bouboulou
1.04 g/t Au over 23m, including 4.1 g/t over 1m at Bouboulou
1.23 g/t Au over 9m, 1.1 g/t Au over 4m at Niangouela

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 5, 2017 / Nexus Gold Corp. ("Nexus" or the "Company") (TSX-V: NXS, OTC PINK: NXXGF, FSE: N6E) is pleased to announce initial assay results from its recent diamond drill programs conducted on both the Niangouela and Bouboulou gold concessions, in addition to sampling conducted at the newly acquired Rakounga gold concession, all located in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
"We are very pleased with our assay results from both Bouboulou and Niangouela, as they have significantly furthered our exploration efforts," said President & CEO, Pete Berdusco. "Specifically, with Bouboulou, we have confirmed historical data, and the zones carrying high-grade gold. We extended intercept lengths with good mineralized continuity, and we've extended the depth of the mineralization. The next phases of drilling will continue to define the zones which are open in all directions with the goal of eventually defining a resource," continued Mr. Berdusco.

The Company has received results from all ten holes from its maiden diamond drill program at the Bouboulou concession which concluded in mid-July. Nine of the 10 drill holes successfully intersected significant gold mineralization. The highlights are as follows: BBL-17-DD-001 returned 6.19 grams per tonne gold ("g/t Au") over 1.0m; BBL-17-DD-002 returned 2.22 g/t Au over 1.0m; BBL-17-DD-003 returned 3.48 g/t Au over 1.52m; BBL-17-DD-004 returned 5.06 g/t Au over 1.52m; BBL-17-DD-006 returned 1.04 g/t over 23m, including 4.10 g/t over 1.0m; BBL-17-DD-007 returned 5.21 g/t Au over 3.05m, including 15.5 grams g/t Au over 1.0m; BBL-17-DD-008 returned 4.41 g/t Au over 8.15m, including 23 g/t Au over 1.50m.
