Vancouver, Canada – April 26, 2018 – Blackrock Gold Corporation (the “Company”) (TSXV:
BRC) is pleased to announce that its CEO Greg Schifrin has recently conducted a site visit to its
recently optioned Silver Cloud Property in Elko County, Nevada to evaluate the property and
potential drill targets. A review of all the historic Silver Cloud Property data is under
examination from past property Lessee’s including Teck Resources, Placer Dome and Geologix.
The data review and 3-D modeling of the previous drill data will help in the location of drill
targets for Blackrock Gold Corp’s 2018 drill campaign. The historic data review will be
completed within the next couple of weeks. In addition BRC is in the process of completing drill
permit notification for the Silver Cloud Property which will be submitted to the Bureau of Land
Management Elko District Office. The drill permit notification will be submitted shortly after the
data review is complete and drill site locations are sited on the ground. BRC is using the
Hollister Mine and Midas Mines geologic models, correlating them to Silver Cloud, to generate
drill targets.
Greg Schifrin “The hot spring sinters at Silver Cloud are massive and extensive and very
similar in characteristics to the Hollister Mine right next door. The previous high grade gold
intercepts at Silver Cloud in the historic drilling by Teck and Placer Dome are very encouraging
for continued positive results at this project.”
BRC plans to commence it drilling program during the summer of 2018 pending drill permit
notification approval. The BRC management team is working collectively to expeditiously
advance the Silver Cloud project to drilling.

Blackrock Gold Corp will be an exhibitor at the Cambridgehouse International Mining
Investment Conference 2018 in Vancouver on May 15 and 16. 2018. Blackrock invites
everyone to come and join us at our booth and meet our team.
