Corvus Gold Continues To Increase the District Gold Potential at the North Bullfrog Project, Nevada

Corvus Gold Continues To Increase the District Gold Potential at the North 
Bullfrog Project, Nevada 
Reverse Circulation Drilling Establishes Continuity and Expands Oxide 
Mineralization. 
TSX: KOR  OTCQX: CORVF 
VANCOUVER, Jan. 15, 2014 /CNW/ - Corvus Gold Inc. ("Corvus" or the "Company") 
- (TSX: KOR), (OTCQX: CORVF) announces assay results from the final 16 reverse 
circulation holes drilled in the 2013 campaign. These results have expanded 
the broad oxide mineralization in the Sierra Blanca deposit in all directions 
and up to another 100 metres in depth.  Hole NB-13-246, on the northern 
extension of the Sierra Blanca deposit, returned 21.3 metres @ 0.46 g/t gold 
from the surface (Figure 1). These results establish the continuity of quartz 
stockwork mineralization found 50 metres to the east in NB-12-242, which had 
41.2 metres @ 0.68 g/t gold from surface, including 10.7 metres @ 1.3 g/t gold 
(NR13-27, October 24, 2013). 
High silver values in several holes found in the North Sierra Blanca area 
adjacent to the Yellowjacket deposit suggests the presence of more 
Yellowjacket style high-grade mineralization between the two deposits. In the 
Savage Valley area, hole NB-13-259 returned 38 metres @ 0.51g/t gold from 18 
metres depth and hole NB-13-258 returned an intercept of 11 m of 0.7 g/t gold 
with high tellurium mineralization similar to that intercepted a half a 
kilometre to the west at Air Track Hill in hole NB-13-364 (NR14-01, January 9, 
2014). Corvus is still waiting for assays on the final 10 core holes drilled 
in 2013, most of which are from the northern and western extension of the 
Yellowjacket deposit. 
Jeff Pontius, Chief Executive Officer, stated: "These encouraging results from 
our resource expansion program have highlighted two important points 1) the 
large bulk tonnage oxide deposit continues to grow and remains unconstrained, 
and 2) the presence of broad higher grade, high silver, stockwork zones is 
encouraging for finding more Yellowjacket type high-grade gold-silver zones.  
This new data has helped outline several new high-grade targets for our 2014 
program. As the scale of the District-wide system continues to grow, this 
promises to be an exciting year." 
North Sierra Blanca Drilling 
Results from nine new RC holes drilled on the northern end of Sierra Blanca 
have established good continuity and extended the known mineralization for 
about 300 metres to the north and 250 metres to the east (Table 1, Figure 1), 
thereby linking the Sierra Blanca deposit with the Yellowjacket deposit.  
Oxidation along the ridge at Sierra Blanca North extends for some 200 metres 
in depth, which is about 100 metres deeper than originally projected in this 
area.  As a result, the potential to increase the tonnage of this portion of 
the deposit has increased (Table 1). 
Broad zones of disseminated mineralization, such as NB-13-244 with 77 metres @ 
0.25 g/t gold, have been found in all holes. High level quartz stockwork 
mineralization seen at the surface has now been intersected in drilling, 
returning higher grades similar to those in the Yellowjacket such as hole 
NB-13-242 (41.2 metres @ 0.68 g/t gold from surface, including 10.7 metres @ 
1.3 g/t gold - previously reported) and hole NB-13-246 (21.3 metres @ 0.46 g/t 
gold). Core holes NB-13-373, 375 and 376 (assays pending) were drilled to test 
the continuity and possible grade enhancement at depth (Yellowjacket 
productive depths) of these newly discovered vein/stockwork zones. 
In addition, holes NB-13-249, 250 and 251 not only demonstrate the continuity 
of lower grade disseminated mineralization, but also encountered intervals 
with anomalously high silver to gold ratios (Table 1, Figure 1). These values 
are characteristic of the Yellowjacket high-grade mineralization and indicate 
that the high-grade veining extends into these areas. Drilling in 2014 will be 
designed to investigate these occurrences as well.

Infill Drilling between Sierra Blanca and Savage Valley Deposits

Drill holes designed to evaluate a large un-drilled area between the southwest 
portion of Sierra Blanca and northern extension of the Savage Valley deposits 
have returned encouraging results which could potentially link the two 
proposed pits in future modeling. The results from seven new holes show that 
low-grade mineralization extends through this area, with some significant 
shallow intercepts such as hole NB-13-256, where 75 of the top 105 metres is 
mineralized above cutoff, and NB-13-254 with 20 metres @ 0.26 g/t gold from 8 
metres depth (Table 2, Figure 1).

Holes NB-13-258 and NB-13-259 both have significant intercepts at nearly 0.5 
g/t gold (Table 2). Of particular interest is the intercept of 10.7 metres @ 
0.7 g/t gold in NB-13-258, which also has elevated tellurium similar to an 
intercept half a kilometre to the west at Air Track Hill (NR14-01, January 9, 
2014).  As previously stated, tellurium is a strong indicator of high-grade 
gold mineralization. Additional drilling is planned in the Savage Valley area 
to explore the potential southern extension of the Yellowjacket high-grade 
deposit into this large area of low-grade mineralization (which has some 
indicators that are similar to the setting at Sierra Blanca to the north).

applicable Canadian and US securities legislation.  All statements, other than 
statements of historical fact, included herein including, without limitation, 
statements regarding the anticipated content, commencement and cost of 
exploration programs, anticipated exploration program results, the discovery 
and delineation of mineral deposits/resources/reserves, the potential for 
there to be more Yellowjacket style high-grade mineralization between the 
North Sierra Blanca area and the Yellowjacket deposits, the potential to 
increase the tonnage of the deposit in the Sierra Blanca North area and for 
the grade to increase at depth, the potential to link the two proposed pits at 
the Sierra Blanca and northern extension of the Savage Valley deposits in 
future modeling, the potential to discover additional high grade veins or 
additional deposits including the potential for Yellowjacket-type high-grade 
mineralization in the area of low-grade mineralization in the Savage Valley 
area, the potential to expand the existing estimated resource at the North 
Bullfrog project, the potential for the North Bullfrog deposits to be part of 
a District-wide gold system and to grow as such, the potential for the North 
Bullfrog system to continue to grow and/or to develop into a major new 
higher-grade, bulk tonnage, Nevada gold discovery, the potential for any 
mining or production at North Bullfrog, the potential for the identification 
of multiple deposits at North Bullfrog, the planned completion of an updated 
preliminary economic assessment for the North Bullfrog project, whether in Q1

reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be 
correct.  Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such

expressions, or are those, which, by their nature, refer to future events.  
The Company cautions investors that any forward-looking statements by the 
Company are not guarantees of future results or performance, and that actual 
results may differ materially from those in forward looking statements as a 
result of various factors, including, but not limited to, variations in the 
nature, quality and quantity of any mineral deposits that may be located, 
variations in the market price of any mineral products the Company may produce 
or plan to produce, the Company's inability to obtain any necessary permits, 
consents or authorizations required for its activities, the Company's 
inability to produce minerals from its properties successfully or profitably, 
to continue its projected growth, to raise the necessary capital or to be 
fully able to implement its business strategies, and other risks and 
uncertainties disclosed in the Company's 2013 Annual Information Form and 
latest interim Management Discussion and Analysis filed with certain

mineral properties in respect of which the Company has no interest or rights 
to explore or mine.  The Company advises US investors that the mining 
guidelines of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") set forth 
in the SEC's Industry Guide 7 ("SEC Industry Guide 7") strictly prohibit 
information of this type in documents filed with the SEC.  Readers are 
cautioned that the Company has no interest in or right to acquire any interest 
in any such properties, and that mineral deposits on adjacent or similar
