OSK-G17-361 was drilled at the eastern part of the 903 Zone and intercepted three mineralized intervals: 1.05 g/t Au over 8.0 metres, 0.87 g/t Au over 8.0 metres, and 1.48 g/t Au over 5.2 metres. The three zones correspond to syenite dykes with quartz veining and sulfides near their contacts with fuchsite altered ultramafic rocks.

OSK-G17-389 was a vertical hole drilled at the central part of the Garrcon Zone, intercepting the deep Garrcon mineralized zone. Six mineralized zones were intercepted including 3.02 g/t Au over 23.3 metres, shallow mineralization associated with zones of intense fracturing and quartz veining with albite, sericite and iron carbonate alteration. A second mineralized zone averaged 1.0 g/t Au over 12.8 metres with the same mineralization style. A third mineralized zone returned 9.03 g/t Au over 1.0 metre associated with a small zone of sericite – iron carbonate alteration with discrete quartz veins. Three additional deeper mineralized zones returned 1.46 g/t Au over 5.0 metres, 1.99 g/t Au over 3.0 metres, and 1.52 g/t Au over 50.0 metres. This deeper mineralization is associated with vein-breccia structures with sericitic alteration and occasional crustiform quartz-carbonate veins.

OSK-G17-396 was drilled in the central part of the 903 Zone where it intercepted two significant mineralized zones, the first averaging 1.03 g/t Au over 16.0 metres associated with the upper part of a syenite dyke with albitic alteration, quartz-carbonate veining, and pyrite dissemination;  and the second averaging 7.12 g/t Au over 1.0 meter, associated with the contact between ultramafic rocks and a thin deformed layer of Temiskaming sediments.

OSK-G17-443 targeted the Garrcon Zone, south of the bulk sample pits intercepting four mineralized zones including: 1.06 g/t Au over 4.75 metres; 1.37 g/t Au over 2.4 metres; 1.32 g/t Au over 1.8 metres; and 1.65 g/t Au over 2.1 metres. All intervals show the typical mineralization style of Garrcon, sediment-hosted fracture and vein zones with associated albite, sericite, and iron carbonate alteration.

OSK-G17-448 was drilled in the southeast part of the 903 Zone targeting mineralization observed in hole OSK-G17-390 (see press release January 15, 2018). The hole intercepted two mineralized zones, the first averaging 0.93 g/t Au over 19.9 metres associated with a syenite dyke with albite-hematite alteration, quartz veining and sulfide dissemination; the second intercepted 1.0 g/t Au over 7.0 metres at the discordant contact between Temiskaming sediments and ultramafic volcanic rocks.

OSK-G17-454 intercepted three mineralized zones, the first averaging 16.1 g/t Au over 8.3 metres associated with strong sodic alteration and veining in a coarse-grained syenite porphyry. A second zone averaged 2.98 g/t Au over 3.0 metres in fuchsite altered ultramafic rocks near the contact with the previously mentioned syenite dyke. A third deeper zone averaged 1.76 g/t Au over 5.9 metres associated with the upper contact of a syenite dyke with albite-hematite alteration.

OSK-G17-458 and OSK-G17-459 were drilled in the central 903 Zone, in the same section, above and below OSK-G17-326 (see press release February 1st, 2017), respectively. OSK-G17-458 intercepted 1.03 g/t Au over 5.04 metres and 1.22 g/t Au over 7.12 metres, both associated with contacts between ultramafic rocks and albite altered syenite dykes. OSK-G17-459 intercepted 1.21 g/t Au over 16.2 metres in altered syenite near the contact with ultramafic rocks; 5.32 g/t Au over 12.6 metres in a strong carbonate alteration zone within a syenite dyke with dissemination of coarse pyrite; and 5.92 g/t Au over 2.3 metres in green sericite – pyrite alteration hosted by Temiskaming sediments in a fracture zone near the contact with ultramafic rocks.

OSK-G17-462 was drilled in the northwestern part of the 903 Zone intercepting two mineralized intervals: the first averaging 3.26 g/t Au over 3.0 metres associated with a thin mineralized layer of sediments and 8.11 g/t Au over 2.5 metres in fuchsite altered ultramafic rocks near the contact with an albite altered lamprophyre dyke.

About the Garrison Project
The Garrison Project area is comprised of 214 mineral claims, 25 mining leases, and 87 patent claims encompassing approximately 8,000 hectares.  Both Garrcon and Jonpol have resource estimates that are described in a technical report prepared in accordance with NI 43-101, which was completed by a previous operator Northern Gold Mining Inc. (entitled “Technical Report on the Golden Bear Project – Garrison Property: Larder Lake Mining Division, Garrison Township, Ontario, Canada”) dated December 30, 2013, with an effective date of December 30, 2013 (the “Garrison Technical Report”). The Garrison Technical Report was prepared by A.C.A. Howe International Limited for Northern Gold Mining Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Osisko) and is available on Osiskos website at www.osiskomining.com and on SEDAR under Northern Gold Mining Inc.s issuer profile at www.sedar.com.

Resource estimates were conducted by A.C.A. Howe International Limited according to CIM standards. The Garrcon Zone estimates showed 15.1 million tonnes with an average grade of 1.07 g/t Au (521,000 oz) in measured resources; 14.1 million tonnes averaging 1.16 g/t Au (526,000 oz) in indicated resources; and 1.7 million tonnes averaging 0.72 g/t Au (39,000 oz) in inferred resources. Potential underground resources of 5.1 million tonnes averaging 3.49 g/t Au (577,000 oz) in the inferred category were also outlined. Resources were reported at a cut-off grade of 0.4 g/t Au for open pit extraction and 1.5 g/t in a bulk underground mining scenario using a gold price of US$1,250/oz.

At the Jonpol Zone, resources were estimated as 0.87 million tonnes averaging 5.34 g/t Au (150,000 oz) in the indicated category; and 1.07 million tonnes averaging 5.56 g/t Au (192,000 oz) in inferred resources. Resources were reported at a cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t Au and assume an underground extraction scenario using a gold price of US$1,250/oz.

Readers are cautioned that inferred resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined economically. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of the inferred resources will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Garrcon Zone
The Garrcon Zone has a shallow plunge eastward along the footwall of the Destor-Porcupine Fault Zone with the bulk of the resource in the western, more densely drilled area. The zone is exposed at surface and has potential for open pit bulk mining at an estimated overall stripping ratio of 1.8:1. There is potential for additional underground resources below the pit and along the easterly plunge of the zone, which is open for further exploration down dip and along strike.

The Garrcon shaft was sunk in 1935 and 1936 by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. of Canada (“Cominco”) and the Shaft and South Zones were tested for high grade gold mineralization. Cominco drove approximately 1,430 metres of drifts and cross cuts, mining underground veins. Diamond drilling by Cominco and Lac Minerals Ltd. in the mid-to-late 1980s identified broad sections of low grade mineralization. In 2006-2007, ValGold Resources Ltd. conducted additional drilling confirming these zones. From 2009-2013 Northern Gold Mining Inc. conducted 97,000 metres of diamond drilling which delineated the current resource.

In 2014, Northern Gold Mining Inc. was granted a trial mining permit allowing the extraction of up to 150,000 tonnes. Northern Gold Mining Inc. mined 73,534 dry tonnes which was processed at the nearby Holt mill facility recovering 3,516 oz at an average head grade of 1.55 g/t and recovery of 95.9%.

Jonpol Zone
Jonpol is situated in the Munro Fault Zone, a west striking splay off the north side of the Destor-Porcupine Fault. Hosted in a shear zone tens of metres wide in altered mafic volcanic rocks, the deposit consists of four high grade gold mineralized zones (JP, JD, RP and East) over a strike length of 1.7 kilometers. Gold mineralization is hosted in quartz carbonate veins, in mafic and ultramafic host rocks, and is associated with intense albite and/or sericite alteration and pyrite mineralization.

In 1997, a 49,087 tonne bulk sample was extracted from the central part of the JP zone by Hillsborough Resources Limited with an average grade of 6.7 g/t which produced 9,476 ounces Au. From 1985-2013, over 130,000 metres of drilling was completed on the property by previous operators. Development work on the JP zone included the sinking of a 184 metre shaft as well as development of a ramp to the 150 metres level with mining on six sublevels. The Jonpol infrastructure underwent reclamation in the late 1990s and was closed out in 2001, but the existing ramp and shaft are preserved.

903 Zone
This third mineralized zone present at Garrison was not included in the resource estimate reported by the previous operator in 2013. Mineralization at the 903 was discovered in 1945 by Wright-Hargreaves Mines Ltd. In 1988 Lac Minerals acquired the claims covering the current 903 Zone and completed 17 drill holes totaling 4,823 metres. The property was optioned in 1990 to Jonpol and T&H Resources and subsequently returned to Lac Minerals in 1991. Northern Gold acquired the claims from a subsidiary of Barrick Gold in 2013, conducting surface exploration and six drill holes.

Qualified Person
The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed, prepared and approved by Mr. Louis Grenier, M.Sc.A., P.Geo. (OGQ 800), Project Manager of the Windfall Lake gold project, who is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).

Quality Control and Reporting Protocols
True widths determinations are estimated at 65-80% of the reported core length intervals for most of the zones. Assays are uncut except where indicated. Intercepts occur within geological confines of major zones but have not been correlated to individual vein domains at this time. Reported intervals include minimum weighted averages of 3.0 g/t Au diluted over core lengths of at least 2.0 metres. All NQ core assays reported were obtained by either 1-kilogram screen fire assay or standard 50-gram fire-assaying-AA finish or gravimetric finish at ALS Laboratories in Val dOr, Québec, Thunder Bay and Sudbury, Ontario or Vancouver, British Colombia or Bureau Veritas in Timmins, Ontario. The 1-kilogram screen assay method is selected by the geologist when samples contain coarse gold or present a higher percentage of pyrite than surrounding intervals. Selected samples are also analyzed for multi-elements, including silver, using an Aqua Regia-ICP-AES method at ALS Laboratories. Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for QA/QC purposes by the Corporation as well as the lab. Approximately 5% of sample pulps are sent to secondary laboratories for check assay.

About the Windfall Lake Gold Deposit
The Windfall Lake gold deposit is located between Val-dOr and Chibougamau in the Abitibi region of Québec, Canada. The mineral resource defined by the previous operator comprises 2,762,000 tonnes at 8.42 g/t Au (748.000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,512,000 tonnes at 7.62 g/t Au (860,000 ounces) in the inferred category (sourced from a technical report dated June 10, 2015 entitled “Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Windfall Lake Gold Property, Québec, Canada” with an effective date of April 28, 2015, prepared in accordance with NI 43-101). The Windfall Lake gold deposit is currently one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1.400 metres long. The deposit is well defined from surface to a depth of 500 metres, and remains open along strike and at depth. Mineralization has been identified only 30 metres from surface in some areas and as deep as 870 metres in others, with significant potential to extend mineralization up and down-plunge and at depth.

Osisko Intersects 415 g/t Au Over 5.9 Metres At Lynx

High-Grade Core Developing at Lynx 4

(Toronto, January 23, 2018)  Osisko Mining Inc. (OSK:TSX. “Osisko” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to provide new results from the ongoing drill program at its 100% owned Windfall Lake gold project located in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec. The 800,000 metre drill program combines definition, expansion and exploration drilling in and around the main Windfall gold deposit and the adjacent Lynx deposit (located immediately NE of Windfall).

Significant new analytical results from 23 intercepts in 17 drill holes focused on infill and expansion drilling in the Lynx deposit are presented below. Osisko continues to extend the known Lynx zones of mineralization through the application of the Windfall geological model and as the density of drilling increases.  The new results appear to demonstrate that the Lynx 4 Zone is developing a high-grade core similar to the Lynx 1 discovery zone.

  • New infill drillholes are delineating a high-grade zone in Lynx 4 between sections 3925E and 4225E
  • Lynx 4 demonstrates good continuity along 1350 metres strike between sections 2875E and 4225E.
  • New drilling shows the potential extension of Lynx 6 by 725 metres to the south-west.

Highlights from the new results include: 415 g/t Au over 5.9 metres and 19.9 g/t Au over 8.8 metres in OSK-W-17-1166-W1; 43.7 g/t Au over 4.8 metres in OSK-W-17-1128; 25.1 g/t Au over 4.5 metres in OSK-W-17-1386; 46.3 g/t Au over 2.4 metres in OSK-W-17-909-W4; 26.1 g/t Au over 4.2 metres in OSK-17-W-1156; 42.1 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-17-931;  17.4 g/t Au over 4.8 metres in OSK-W-17-1166-W4;  11.8 g/t Au over 5.5 metres in OSK-W-17-958; and 23.4 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-17-1397.

Qualified Person
The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed, prepared and approved by Mr. Louis Grenier, M.Sc.A., P.Geo. (OGQ 800), Project Manager of the Windfall Lake gold project, who is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).

Quality Control and Reporting Protocols
True widths determinations are estimated at 65-80% of the reported core length intervals for most of the zones. Assays are uncut except where indicated. Intercepts occur within geological confines of major zones but have not been correlated to individual vein domains at this time. Reported intervals include minimum weighted averages of 3.0 g/t Au diluted over core lengths of at least 2.0 metres. All NQ core assays reported were obtained by either 1-kilogram screen fire assay or standard 50-gram fire-assaying-AA finish or gravimetric finish at ALS Laboratories in Val dOr, Québec, Thunder Bay and Sudbury, Ontario or Vancouver, British Colombia or Bureau Veritas in Timmins, Ontario. The 1-kilogram screen assay method is selected by the geologist when samples contain coarse gold or present a higher percentage of pyrite than surrounding intervals. Selected samples are also analyzed for multi-elements, including silver, using an Aqua Regia-ICP-AES method at ALS Laboratories. Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for QA/QC purposes by the Corporation as well as the lab. Approximately 5% of sample pulps are sent to secondary laboratories for check assay.

About the Windfall Lake Gold Deposit
The Windfall Lake gold deposit is located between Val-dOr and Chibougamau in the Abitibi region of Québec, Canada. The mineral resource defined by the previous operator comprises 2,762,000 tonnes at 8.42 g/t Au (748.000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,512,000 tonnes at 7.62 g/t Au (860,000 ounces) in the inferred category (sourced from a technical report dated June 10, 2015 entitled “Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Windfall Lake Gold Property, Québec, Canada” with an effective date of April 28, 2015, prepared in accordance with NI 43-101). The Windfall Lake gold deposit is currently one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1.400 metres long. The deposit is well defined from surface to a depth of 500 metres, and remains open along strike and at depth. Mineralization has been identified only 30 metres from surface in some areas and as deep as 870 metres in others, with significant potential to extend mineralization up and down-plunge and at depth.

Qualified Person
The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed, prepared and approved by Mr. Louis Grenier, M.Sc.A., P.Geo. (OGQ 800), Project Manager of the Windfall Lake gold project, who is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).

Quality Control and Reporting Protocols
True widths determinations are estimated at 65-80% of the reported core length intervals for most of the zones. Assays are uncut except where indicated. Intercepts occur within geological confines of major zones but have not been correlated to individual vein domains at this time. Reported intervals include minimum weighted averages of 3.0 g/t Au diluted over core lengths of at least 2.0 metres. All NQ core assays reported were obtained by either 1-kilogram screen fire assay or standard 50-gram fire-assaying-AA finish or gravimetric finish at ALS Laboratories in Val dOr, Québec, Thunder Bay and Sudbury, Ontario or Vancouver, British Colombia or Bureau Veritas in Timmins, Ontario. The 1-kilogram screen assay method is selected by the geologist when samples contain coarse gold or present a higher percentage of pyrite than surrounding intervals. Selected samples are also analyzed for multi-elements, including silver, using an Aqua Regia-ICP-AES method at ALS Laboratories. Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for QA/QC purposes by the Corporation as well as the lab. Approximately 5% of sample pulps are sent to secondary laboratories for check assay.

About the Windfall Lake Gold Deposit
The Windfall Lake gold deposit is located between Val-dOr and Chibougamau in the Abitibi region of Québec, Canada. The mineral resource defined by the previous operator comprises 2,762,000 tonnes at 8.42 g/t Au (748.000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,512,000 tonnes at 7.62 g/t Au (860,000 ounces) in the inferred category (sourced from a technical report dated June 10, 2015 entitled “Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Windfall Lake Gold Property, Québec, Canada” with an effective date of April 28, 2015, prepared in accordance with NI 43-101). The Windfall Lake gold deposit is currently one of the highest-grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1.400 metres long. The deposit is well defined from surface to a depth of 500 metres, and remains open along strike and at depth. Mineralization has been identified only 30 metres from surface in some areas and as deep as 870 metres in others, with significant potential to extend mineralization up and down-plunge and at depth.

OSK-G17-363, and OSK-G17-397 were drilled in the eastern part of the 903 Zone, along the same section 2400W. OSK-G17-363 intersected two mineralized zones: 1.04 g/t Au over 15 metres in a quartz-iron carbonate breccia/iron carbonate + hematite altered metasediment; the second mineralized zone intersected 1.03 g/t Au over 6.0 metres within a strong albite-hematite altered porphyritic syenite.

OSK-G17-383, OSK-G17-418, and OSK-G17-432 were drilled above OSK-G17-352 to extend the mineralization previously intercepted in syenite dykes in that hole. OSK-G17-383 intersected a mineralized zone within albite-hematite + iron carbonate altered metasediment averaging 1.41g/t Au over 5.0 metres. OSK-G17-418 and OSK-G17-432 intercepted the same shear zone located at the contact between ultramafic rocks and a minor lamprophyre dyke returning 3.33 g/t Au over 2.5 metres and 2.17 g/t Au over 2.7 metres, respectively.

OSK-G17-387 and OSK-G17-425 were drilled in the same section 2850W in the central part of the 903 Zone. OSK-G17-387 intersected three mineralized zones: 2.39 g/t Au over 7.9 metres and 2.88 g/t Au over 9.0 metres associated with quartz veining, albite alteration and sulfides within a sub-vertical syenite dyke. The third mineralized zone returned 1.10 g/t Au over 32.4 metres, and is hosted by metasediments at the base of their discordant contact with ultramafic rocks. OSK-G17-425 intersected two mineralized zones: 1.53 g/t Au over 62.8 metres within a massive albite-hematite altered porphyritic syenite. The second mineralized zone is hosted within a shear zone in ultramafic rocks, with fragments of syenite and lamprophyre, averaging 10.18 g/t Au over 2.0 metres

OSK-G17-390 intercepted 1.42 g/t Au over 4.0 metres associated with a minor brown dyke altered with albite and biotite, with quartz veinlets and pyrite dissemination. The hole also intercepted a wide syenite dyke with strong albite-hematite alteration and zones of abundant quartz veining, specularite and euhedral pyrite dissemination returning 2.65 g/t Au over 70.1 metres. OSK-G17-390 represents one of the best mineralized zones intercepted so far at the 903 Zone.

OSK-G17-392 was drilled 200 metres west of hole OSK-G17-387 and OSK-G17-425 in the central 903 Zone, intersecting two mineralized zones associated to iron carbonate + hematite altered metasediments, near the discordant contact between sediments and ultramafic rocks. The first interval averaged 2.66 g/t Au over 3.0 metres, and the second zone averaged 2.00 g/t Au over 14.7 metres. This deeper zone represents the strike extension of the zone described in OSK-G17-425 above.

OSK-G17-413, -416, -421 were designed to test the mineralized zone dipping below the Garrcon east bulk sample pit. OSK-G17-413 intersected 1.16 g/t Au over 7.0 metres and 4.99 g/t Au over 2.0 metres; OSK-G17-416 intersected 0.87 g/t Au over 29.5 metres; OSK-G17-421 intersected 1.40 g/t Au over 10.0 metres, 0.83 g/t Au over 31.5 metres, and 1.15 g/t over 27.0 metres. Mineralization is closely associated with the N-NE trending, east dipping, quartz iron carbonate veins, breccias and fractures showing albite, sericite, and iron carbonate alteration of the host rock. Local pyrite concentrations up to 2% along with local visible gold within the veins mark the most common mineralization seen. 

OSK-G17-424 was an infill hole which intersected two mineralized zones: albite-hematite altered porphyritic syenite, with strong 2-5 cm quartz-carbonate veins, averaging 1.43 g/t Au over 10.7 metres; the second mineralized zone is hosted within iron carbonate + hematite altered metasediments near the contact with fuchsite altered ultramafic volcanics, averaging 1.81 g/t Au over 32.0 metres.

OSK-G17-428 intersected three mineralized zones hosted in syenite dikes, averaging 4.10 g/t Au over 2.6 metres; 2.24 g/t Au over 5.0 metres; and 0.82 g/t Au over 23.5 metres. The three dikes show typical 903 mineralization: quartz – carbonate veinlets with pyrite halos hosted by albite – hematite – carbonate altered syenite.

OSK-G17-429 was drilled in Garrcon, 100 metres southeast of the east bulk sample pit and intersected several mineralized intevals associated with vein and fracture zones with albite-hematite + iron carbonate haloes hosted by metasediments including: 1.64 g/t Au over 10.9 metres; 2.45 g/t Au over 6.0 metres; 3.73 g/t Au over 12.0 metres; 8.53 g/t Au over 2.0 metres; and 1.29 g/t Au over 17.0 metres.

OSK-G17-430 intersected 1.49 g/t Au over 6.7 metres within a strong albite-hematite + iron carbonate altered porphyritic syenite.

OSK-G17-431 intersected two mineralized zones consisting of strong albite-hematite altered porphyritic syenites with moderate quartz-carbonate veins, averaging 1.21 g/t Au over 17.7 metres and 3.41 g/t Au over 19.0 metres.

OSK-G17-433 intersected 6.01 g/t Au over 2.0 metres within sericite and iron carbonate altered metasediment.

OSK-G17-434 was drilled as an infill hole and intersected 3.78 g/t Au over 8.5 metres within a sheared albite-hematite-magnetite altered zone with mixed syenite and lamprophyre dykes.

OSK-G17-435 intersected two zones: mineralization within an albite-hematite + iron carbonate altered porphyritic syenite, averaging 5.12 g/t Au over 5.0 metres, and the second mineralization zone of green sericite – iron carbonate – pyrite alteration in weakly laminated metasediments near the contact with fuchsite altered ultramafic rocks, returning 3.21 g/t Au over 16.0 metres.

OSK-G17-439 intersected two mineralized zones: the first zone of 1.32 g/t Au over 17.5 metres, and the second zone of 2.72 g/t Au over 17.8 metres. Both zones are hosted by syenite dykes with strong albite-hematite alteration, quartz-carbonate veining and pyrite dissemination.

OSK-G17-440 intersected two mineralized zones in iron carbonate + sericite altered metasediment. The first zone of 1.62 g/t Au over 11.55 metres and the second zone, with stronger quartz-carbonate veining, returned 1.07 g/t Au over 9.35 metres.

OSK-G17-441 intersected two mineralization zones within albite-hematite altered porphyritic syenite averaging 1.24 g/t Au over 18.4 metres, and 3.85 g/t Au over 1.8 metres. This mineralization may represent an east extension of the mineralized zone intercepted in OSK-G17-390.

OSK-G17-446 intersected two mineralized zones: 14.9 g/t Au over 2.0 metres within altered metasediment with quartz-carbonate veinlets with local visible gold; and 1.60 g/t Au over 14.0 metres within grey sandstones with quartz-carbonate veinlets and sericite – iron carbonate halos.

OSK-G17-450 intersected 0.89 g/t Au over 28.0 metres, 13.0 g/t Au over 1 metre and one bonanza grade intercept of 521 g/t Au over 1 metre. Mineralization occurs in areas with patches of albite, sericite, and iron carbonate associated with quartz – carbonate veinlets hosted by sediments.

OSK-G17-452 intersected 1.62 g/t Au over 16.0 metres within a strong albite-hematite altered syenite, with quartz, carbonate veinlets, specularite and pyrite.

OSK-G17-455 intersected two mineralized zones: fuchsite altered ultramafic volcanics with quartz-carbonate veins averaging 2.95 g/t Au over 2.1 metres; the second zone consists of a porphyritic syenite with strong albite alteration and quartz-carbonate veinlets averaging 1.07 g/t Au over 17.7 metres.

OSK-G17-464 intersected 8.67 g/t Au over 2.5 metres within ultramafic volcanics with strong quartz-carbonate veining.

OSK-G17-469 intersected 1.47 g/t Au over 20.89 metres in a mineralized zone with albite-hematite altered syenites intercalated with chlorite + sericite altered ultramafic volcanics with strong quartz-carbonate veining.

About the Garrison Project
The Garrison Project area is comprised of 214 mineral claims, 25 mining leases, and 87 patent claims encompassing approximately 8,000 hectares. Both Garrcon and Jonpol have resource estimates that are described in a technical report prepared in accordance with NI 43-101, which was completed by a previous operator Northern Gold Mining Inc. (entitled “Technical Report on the Golden Bear Project – Garrison Property: Larder Lake Mining Division, Garrison Township, Ontario, Canada”) dated December 30, 2013, with an effective date of December 30, 2013 (the “Garrison Technical Report”). The Garrison Technical Report was prepared by A.C.A. Howe International Limited for Northern Gold Mining Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Osisko) and is available on Osiskos website at www.osiskomining.com and on SEDAR under Northern Gold Mining Inc.s issuer profile at www.sedar.com.

Resource estimates were conducted by A.C.A. Howe International Limited according to CIM standards. The Garrcon Zone estimates showed 15.1 million tonnes with an average grade of 1.07 g/t Au (521,000 oz) in measured resources; 14.1 million tonnes averaging 1.16 g/t Au (526,000 oz) in indicated resources; and 1.7 million tonnes averaging 0.72 g/t Au (39,000 oz) in inferred resources. Potential underground resources of 5.1 million tonnes averaging 3.49 g/t Au (577,000 oz) in the inferred category were also outlined. Resources were reported at a cut-off grade of 0.4 g/t Au for open pit extraction and 1.5 g/t in a bulk underground mining scenario using a gold price of US$1,250/oz.

At the Jonpol Zone, resources were estimated as 0.87 million tonnes averaging 5.34 g/t Au (150,000 oz) in the indicated category; and 1.07 million tonnes averaging 5.56 g/t Au (192,000 oz) in inferred resources. Resources were reported at a cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t Au and assume an underground extraction scenario using a gold price of US$1,250/oz.

Readers are cautioned that inferred resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined economically. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of the inferred resources will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Garrcon Zone
The Garrcon Zone has a shallow plunge eastward along the footwall of the Destor-Porcupine Fault Zone with the bulk of the resource in the western, more densely drilled area. The zone is exposed at surface and has potential for open pit bulk mining at an estimated overall stripping ratio of 1.8:1. There is potential for additional underground resources below the pit and along the easterly plunge of the zone, which is open for further exploration down dip and along strike.

The Garrcon shaft was sunk in 1935 and 1936 by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. of Canada (“Cominco”) and the Shaft and South Zones were tested for high grade gold mineralization. Cominco drove approximately 1,430 metres of drifts and cross cuts, mining underground veins. Diamond drilling by Cominco and Lac Minerals Ltd. in the mid-to-late 1980s identified broad sections of low grade mineralization. In 2006-2007, ValGold Resources Ltd. conducted additional drilling confirming these zones. From 2009-2013 Northern Gold Mining Inc. conducted 97,000 metres of diamond drilling which delineated the current resource.

In 2014, Northern Gold Mining Inc. was granted a trial mining permit allowing the extraction of up to 150,000 tonnes. Northern Gold Mining Inc. mined 73,534 dry tonnes which was processed at the nearby Holt mill facility recovering 3,516 oz at an average head grade of 1.55 g/t and recovery of 95.9%.

Jonpol Zone
Jonpol is situated in the Munro Fault Zone, a west striking splay off the north side of the Destor-Porcupine Fault. Hosted in a shear zone tens of metres wide in altered mafic volcanic rocks, the deposit consists of four high grade gold mineralized zones (JP, JD, RP and East) over a strike length of 1.7 kilometers. Gold mineralization is hosted in quartz carbonate veins, in mafic and ultramafic host rocks, and is associated with intense albite and/or sericite alteration and pyrite mineralization.

In 1997, a 49,087 tonne bulk sample was extracted from the central part of the JP zone by Hillsborough Resources Limited with an average grade of 6.7 g/t which produced 9,476 ounces Au. From 1985-2013, over 130,000 metres of drilling was completed on the property by previous operators. Development work on the JP zone included the sinking of a 184 metre shaft as well as development of a ramp to the 150 metres level with mining on six sublevels. The Jonpol infrastructure underwent reclamation in the late 1990s and was closed out in 2001, but the existing ramp and shaft are preserved.

903 Zone
This third mineralized zone present at Garrison was not included in the resource estimate reported by the previous operator in 2013. Mineralization at the 903 was discovered in 1945 by Wright-Hargreaves Mines Ltd. In 1988 Lac Minerals acquired the claims covering the current 903 Zone and completed 17 drill holes totaling 4,823 metres. The property was optioned in 1990 to Jonpol and T&H Resources and subsequently returned to Lac Minerals in 1991. Northern Gold acquired the claims from a subsidiary of Barrick Gold in 2013, conducting surface exploration and six drill holes.

Significant new analytical results from 90 intercepts in 52 drill holes focused on infill and expansion drilling in the Lynx deposit are presented below. Osisko continues to extend the known Lynx zones of mineralization through the application of the Windfall geological model and as the density of drilling increases.

  • The main Lynx Corridor has been extended up plunge 250 metres SW from the last drill intercept for a total current strike length of confirmed mineralization over 1,550 metres and remains open.
  • Lynx HW is showing good continuity and grades towards the NE.
  • Lynx 4 has been extended 75 metres NE for a total current strike length of 1,350 metres and new infill drillholes continue to demonstrate continuity and robust gold grades between sections 3650E and 4225E.

Highlights from the new results include: 140 g/t Au over 5.0 metres in OSK-W-17-1343; 210 g/t Au over 2.4 metres in OSK-W-17-923;  28.3 g/t Au over 7.7 metres in OSK-W-17-1193; 83.0 g/t Au over 2.0 metres in OSK-W-17-1059;  43.1 g/t Au over 4.4 metres in OSK-W-1343-W2;  48.7 g/t Au over 2.6 metres in OSK-W-17-1104;  43.8 g/t Au over 2.5 metres in OSK-W-17-1242;  22.6 g/t Au over 4.8 metres in OSK-W-17-888;  16.0 g/t Au over 5.5 metres and 22.9 g/t Au over 2.4 metres in OSK-W-17-1177;  29.8 g/t Au over 2.2 metres in OSK-W-17-1085;  14.8 g/t Au over 4.4 metres in OSK-W-1193-W1;  27.9 g/t Au over 2.4 metres in OSK-W-17-1181-W1; and 20.6 g/t Au over 2.2 metres in OSK-17-W-945.

(OGQ 800), Project Manager of the Windfall Lake gold project, who is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).

Quality Control and Reporting Protocols
True widths determinations are estimated at 65-80% of the reported core length intervals for most of the zones. Assays are uncut except where indicated. Intercepts occur within geological confines of major zones but have not been correlated to individual vein domains at this time. Reported intervals include minimum weighted averages of 3.0 g/t Au diluted over core lengths of at least 2.0 metres. All NQ core assays reported were obtained by either 1-kilogram screen fire assay or standard 50-gram fire-assaying-AA finish or gravimetric finish at ALS Laboratories in Val dOr, Québec, Thunder Bay and Sudbury, Ontario or Vancouver, British Colombia or Bureau Veritas in Timmins, Ontario. The 1-kilogram screen assay method is selected by the geologist when samples contain coarse gold or present a higher percentage of pyrite than surrounding intervals. Selected samples are also analyzed for multi-elements, including silver, using an Aqua Regia-ICP-AES method at ALS Laboratories. Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for QA/QC purposes by the Corporation as well as the lab. Approximately 5% of sample pulps are sent to secondary laboratories for check assay.

About the Windfall Lake Gold Deposit
The Windfall Lake gold deposit is located between Val-dOr and Chibougamau in the Abitibi region of Québec, Canada. The mineral resource defined by the previous operator comprises 2,762,000 tonnes at 8.42 g/t Au (748.000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,512,000 tonnes at 7.62 g/t Au (860,000 ounces) in the inferred category (sourced from a technical report dated June 10, 2015 entitled “Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Windfall Lake Gold Property, Québec, Canada” with an effective date of April 28, 2015, prepared in accordance with NI 43-101). The Windfall Lake gold deposit is currently one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1.400 metres long. The deposit is well defined from surface to a depth of 500 metres, and remains open along strike and at depth. Mineralization has been identified only 30 metres from surface in some areas and as deep as 870 metres in others, with significant potential to extend mineralization up and down-plunge and at depth.

Qualified Person
The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed, prepared and approved by Mr. Louis Grenier, M.Sc.A., P.Geo. (OGQ 800), Project Manager of the Windfall Lake gold project, who is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).

Quality Control and Reporting Protocols
True widths determinations are estimated at 65-80% of the reported core length intervals for most of the zones. Assays are uncut except where indicated. Intercepts occur within geological confines of major zones but have not been correlated to individual vein domains at this time. Reported intervals include minimum weighted averages of 3.0 g/t Au diluted over core lengths of at least 2.0 metres. All NQ core assays reported were obtained by either 1-kilogram screen fire assay or standard 50-gram fire-assaying-AA finish or gravimetric finish at ALS Laboratories in Val dOr, Québec, Thunder Bay and Sudbury, Ontario or Vancouver, British Colombia or Bureau Veritas in Timmins, Ontario. The 1-kilogram screen assay method is selected by the geologist when samples contain coarse gold or present a higher percentage of pyrite than surrounding intervals. Selected samples are also analyzed for multi-elements, including silver, using an Aqua Regia-ICP-AES method at ALS Laboratories. Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing a QA/QC program consistent with NI 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for QA/QC purposes by the Corporation as well as the lab. Approximately 5% of sample pulps are sent to secondary laboratories for check assay.

About the Windfall Lake Gold Deposit
The Windfall Lake gold deposit is located between Val-dOr and Chibougamau in the Abitibi region of Québec, Canada. The mineral resource defined by the previous operator comprises 2,762,000 tonnes at 8.42 g/t Au (748.000 ounces) in the indicated category and 3,512,000 tonnes at 7.62 g/t Au (860,000 ounces) in the inferred category (sourced from a technical report dated June 10, 2015 entitled “Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Windfall Lake Gold Property, Québec, Canada” with an effective date of April 28, 2015, prepared in accordance with NI 43-101). The Windfall Lake gold deposit is currently one of the highest grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada. The bulk of the mineralization occurs in the Main Zone, a southwest/northeast trending zone of stacked mineralized lenses, measuring approximately 600 metres wide and at least 1.400 metres long. The deposit is well defined from surface to a depth of 500 metres, and remains open along strike and at depth. Mineralization has been identified only 30 metres from surface in some areas and as deep as 870 metres in others, with significant potential to extend mineralization up and down-plunge and at depth.
