Pershing Gold Corporation Concludes 2016 Phase 1 Drilling Program

Pershing Gold Corporation provided update on the progress towards production at its Relief Canyon Mine in Pershing County, Nevada. The PFS is a key step to allow the Company to define reserves at Relief Canyon under Canadian National Instrument 43-101 and is expected to provide a higher degree of confidence in the Relief Canyon project. Key components of the PFS include the following: Incorporation of a geotechnical pit slope evaluation completed by Golder Associates of Reno, NV.; Evaluation of an updated resource model incorporating new exploration drilling; Detailed capital and operating cost comparison of contract versus self-mining; Detailed capital and operating cost comparison of truck stacking versus conveyor stacking of crushed and agglomerated ore on the leach pad; Incorporation of additional metallurgical testing to establish ore agglomeration parameters; Trade-off study of line versus generated electrical power. Notable intercepts from RC16-490 include: RC16-490; including: 24.1 ft (7.3 m), 1.830 gpt, 0.053 oz/ton Au; including: 5.0 ft (1.5 m), 13.933 gpt, 0.407 oz/ton Au. Phase 1a Drilling Program: The company is now evaluating results from the 15,164 ft (4,622 m) of core drilling in the 2016 Drilling Programs to follow-up on the successes there. This Phase 1a Program and other follow up programs could include step-out drilling to continue following the mineralization from Relief Canyon down dip to the west and southwest as well as infill drilling to expand the current economic pit limit at Relief Canyon. Geologic modeling of the higher grades encountered in the area of RC16-462 is currently in progress with additional drilling under consideration for 2017. Phase 2 Drilling Program; Pershing Gold has initiated Phase 2 of its 2016 Drilling Program. Phase 2 is focused on extending mineralization south of the South Pit and the Lightbulb Pit, as well as on discovering satellite deposits that could be processed at the existing heap leach and ADR facilities at Relief Canyon. Phase 2 drilling at Pershing Gold Corporation's Relief Canyon Mine has identified potential mineable grade intervals of gold in drill hole RC16-498 with 10.1 ft (3.14 m) intervals averaging 1.13 gpt, 0.033 oz/ton Au, and 12.2 ft (3.7 m) at 0.343 gpt, 0.01 oz/ton Au. The Company is encouraged by the two intervals in hole RC16-498 because they occur along the contact of the South Humboldt Thrust where deformed siliciclastics of the Grass Valley Formation are in thrust contact with the underlying carbonates of the Cane Springs Formation.
