Second Drill to Focus on New Target Areas Outside Past Producing Pit

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / October 27, 2020 / Idaho Champion Gold Mines Canada Inc. (CSE: ITKO) (OTCQB: GLDRF) (FSE: 1QB1)("Champion" or the "Company"), announces an update regarding its 2020 exploration program at the Champagne Gold Project in Idaho, USA.

As part of the 5,000 metre drilling program (see press release dated: August 19, 2020), Champion has mobilized a second core rig to focus on new target areas identified between and around the two past-producing open pits.

"Since adding an additional drill rig at Champagne in September, our technical team has identified favorable geology and alteration in the holes that have been drilled and logged so far. Our geologists have also developed additional targets peripheral to the historic open pits from mapping, sampling, and analysis of historic prospects and reports. By adding this additional drill rig even before assay results are returned, we can maximize our opportunity to assess these targets before the onset of winter," stated Jonathan Buick, President and CEO.

Champion further announces the completion of the 2020 exploration program at the Baner Project, near Elk City, Idaho. The Baner drill program completed 13 holes for a total of 2,200 metres. While winter weather influenced the early termination of drilling, logging, and sampling of the drill core continues. The team has been encouraged by the geology and alteration encountered at Baner and the Company looks forward to the receipt of exploration results, including analysis of drill core, during the fourth quarter.

About the Champagne Project

The Champagne Mine* was operated by Bema Gold as a heap leach operation on a high sulfidation gold system that occurs in volcanic rocks. Bema Gold drilled 72 shallow reverse circulation holes on the project, which complement drilling and trenching from other previous operators. The property has had no deep drilling or significant modern exploration since the mine closure in early 1992.

The Champagne Deposit contains epigenetic style gold and silver mineralization that occurs in strongly altered Tertiary volcanic tuffs and flows of acid to intermediate composition. Champagne has a near surface cap of gold-silver mineralization emplaced by deep-seated structures that acted as conduits for precious metal rich hydrothermal fluids. Higher grade zones in the Champagne Deposit appear to be related to such feeder zones.

* The Company cautions that the information about the past-producing mine may not be indicative of mineralization on Champion's property, and if mineralization does occur, that it will occur in sufficient quantity or grade that would result in an economic extraction scenario. The historic data were simply used to evaluate the prospective nature of the property. The Company has not yet conducted sufficient exploration to ascertain if a mineral resource is present on the property.
