Erdene Intersects 40 Metres of 3.3 g/t Gold and 72 Metres of 1.6 g/t Gold in Step-Out Drilling North of Midfield Zone at Bayan Khundii

Erdene Resource Development Corp. (“Erdene”) released additional assay results from the ongoing 2017 drill program at the Bayan Khundii gold project in southwest Mongolia (“Bayan Khundii”). The drill results establish greater confidence in the continuity of gold mineralization within and north of the Midfield Zone at Bayan Khundii and add to the size potential of the asset. Step-out drilling north of the Midfield Zone returned several high grade intersections including:
•BKD-179: 40.0 metres of 3.3 g/t gold from 106.0 metres, including 9.0 metres of 12.5 g/t gold, 165.0 metres north of the Midfield Zone;
•BKD-178: 71.6 metres of 1.6 g/t gold from 136.5 metres, including 19.0 metres of 4.6 g/t gold, 80.0 metres north of the Midfield Zone; and
•BKD-182: 39.0 metres of 2.1 g/t gold from 70.0 metres, including 9.0 metres of 8.2 g/t gold, 200.0 metres north of the Midfield Zone.

Erdene has completed a total of 15,808 metres in 86 drill holes at Bayan Khundii in 2017 for a total of 27,574 metres in 182 drill holes since the first hole was drilled in Q4 of 2015. For the remainder of the third of fourth quarters Erdene’s drilling program will be focused on further delineation of newly discovered high-grade mineralization encountered during the exploration program in the first half of the year and exploring a series of geophysical and geochemical targets within the larger 2.0 kilometre by 1.8 kilometre Bayan Khundii target area. Three drill rigs are operational.

In addition to the on-going Bayan Khundii drill program, Erdene will complete regional drilling between Bayan Khundii and its Altan Arrow gold-silver project, located 3.5 kilometres north of Bayan Khundii. Erdene has also designed a follow-up drill program for its neighboring Altan Nar gold-polymetallic project, located 16 kilometres northwest of Bayan Khundii. This program will include testing of newly defined geophysical targets and completion of step-out drilling in areas adjacent to its previously reported NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate at Altan Nar. It is anticipated that a revised resource estimate at Altan Nar and a maiden resource estimate for Bayan Khundii will be completed in 2018.

Erdene also entered into an agreement to acquire an initial 51% interest in the Ulaan exploration license, adjacent to the high-grade Bayan Khundii gold project, with the option to acquire up to 100%. The Ulaan exploration license covers approximately 1,780 hectares and is located immediately west of Erdene’s Bayan Khundii and Altan Arrow gold projects. Sandstorm’s royalty agreement includes a five kilometre area of interest that covers a large portion of the newly acquired license.

Reported intervals are not true width. At this time there is insufficient data with respect to the shape of the mineralized system to calculate true orientations in space. They represent drill intersection widths from holes drilled at a dip of -45 to -65 degrees and oriented to the north-northeast.

Russian Old Workings Zone: HTD-139 (TD: 441.0m)

The Russian Old Workings Zone is located 1.0 km south of the southern end of the South Zone. This area contains the historic copper mines that were operated by Russian miners prior to 1920. The geology is significantly different from the South Zone, because it contains what is believed to be the youngest rocks on the property. Drill hole HTD 139 was drilled to the east and intercepted zinc with low grade gold values in quartz veins, hosted by andesitic volcanic rocks (150m, 164m). After passing into the rhyodacite volcanics at 280 metres (interpreted to be part of the flow-dome complex) the hole intercepted high grade gold in structurally controlled jasper-quartz veins and quartz veins, with elevated copper and zinc. This is significant because it demonstrates that significant gold mineralization was introduced into the youngest rocks.

Russian Old Workings Zone: HTD-127 (TD: 471.0m)

Drill hole HTD 127 was drilled to the south, attempting to evaluate some of the historic workings. The hole penetrated variably altered andesitic volcanic rocks on the west side of the main structural zone. It intersected five high grade zinc veins with elevated gold+/ copper and one high grade gold only vein structure. This hole stayed within the older volcanic package, west of the rhyodacitic flow-dome complex.

Hot Maden mineralized intervals presented in this press release are drill intersection widths and may not represent true widths of mineralisation. Drill core obtained from the diamond drill program was dominantly HQ-sized core with the remainder being PQ-sized core. All drill core was photographed and quick logged prior to sampling. Standard sampling protocol involved the halving of all drill core and sampling over generally 1 metre intervals in clearly mineralized sections or 2.0 metre intervals elsewhere, with one half of the core being placed in a sealed sample bag and dispatched to the analytical laboratory for analysis. Samples have been analysed at ALS Laboratories’ facility in Izmir, western Turkey. All samples have been analysed for gold using a 30 gram Fire Assay with AAS finish (or Screen Fire Assay for higher grade samples), in addition to a 32 element ICP-AES analysis of an aqua regia digest. Samples in which ICP analyses returned greater than the maximum detection limit for the elements Ag (10 ppm), Cu (10,000 ppm), Fe (15%), Pb (10,000 ppm), and Zn (10,000 ppm) were reanalysed using the AAS analytical technique. Standards and blanks were inserted in to the analytical sequence on the basis of one standard for every 20 samples, 2 blanks in every batch, and one duplicate every 40 samples.
