Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 21, 2019) - UrbanGold Minerals Inc. (TSXV: UGM) ("UrbanGold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed its first phase of diamond core drilling on its Troilus area properties (the "Property") with a total of 3,562 metres. 2,537 samples were taken from the drill core and are currently at the laboratories in Val d'Or pending assaying.

The drill program focused on three different portions of the Property. 14 holes totalling 2,005 metres were completed on the Argonaut Gold ("Argonaut") ground, on which UrbanGold entered into an earn-in agreement (see September 13, 2019 news release). The program focused on potential extensions of historical mineralized zones, with a few holes aiming to verify historical intersections so they can be used for a potential future resource calculation under National Instrument ("NI") 43-101 guidelines. A list of select historical occurrences is shown in table 1 below.

Another portion of the program focused on UrbanGold's Bullseye block which surrounds the Argonaut claims. Nine holes totalling 1,164 metres targeted induced polarization anomalies, some of which were associated with mineralization discovered at surface during the summer program.

The third area of interest drilled was the Larabel block located in the northeastern portion of the Property. The summer exploration program uncovered a new gold occurrence in a favorable area, in geological context similar to the Troilus Mine mineralization. Three holes totalling 393 metres were completed on this portion of the property. Please refer to the September 26, 2019 news release regarding the surface sampling discoveries.

All assays are pending, and preparations are underway for a winter drill program which will follow-up on the fall drill results with deeper drilling, and target specific areas that could not be accessed this season due to terrain conditions.

UrbanGold also wishes to announce that, further to its news release of October 22, 2019 disclosing the terms of a brokered private placement (the "Offering"), it is reducing the minimum Offering of units to 2,000,000 units (the "Units") resulting in gross proceeds of $250,000 and reducing the maximum Offering of common shares issued on a flow-through basis (the "Flow-Through Shares") to 6,666,667 Flow-Through Shares resulting in gross proceeds of $1,000,000. All other terms of the Offering remain the same. The amendment is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Under the new terms, the Offering consists of a minimum of 2,000,000 Units to a maximum of 8,000,000 Units priced at $0.125 per Unit resulting in gross proceeds of a minimum of $250,000 to a maximum of $1,000,000 and a minimum of 5,000,000 Flow-Through Shares to a maximum of 6,666,667 Flow-Through Shares priced at $0.15 per Flow-Through Share resulting in gross proceeds of a minimum of $750,000 to a maximum of $1,000,000. The Units will be comprised of one (1) common share of the Company ("Common Share") and one-half of one (1/2) Common Share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share for $0.18 expiring 18 months from the date of the closing of the Offering.

In the following order, depending on the proceeds raised, UrbanGold intends to use a minimum of $750,000 to a maximum of $1,000,000 to fund the Company's exploration program and a minimum of $250,000 to a maximum of $1,000,000 to fund working capital and general corporate purposes.
