Signature Announces High Grade Targets; Updated Investor Presentation On Corporate Website
February 15, 2017
Toronto, Ontario, February 15, 2017 – Signature Resources Ltd. (TSXV: SGU, OTCQB: SGGTF) ("Signature" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has posted an updated investor presentation, highlighting the exploration potential of the Lingman Lake gold deposit, on its corporate website which is available at www.signatureresources.ca.
“The 28.51 gpt gold average derived from raise sampling suggests high grade gold values occur within the North zone, which will serve to provide immediate target areas for drill testing in the multiple vein layered system. This target area, which will be evaluated by future drilling, may significantly expand the gold zones, which remain open along strike and at depth”, commented Walter Hanych, President and CEO.
The investor presentation includes a current update of the Company, including details of the historical core assays that were recently completed. Incorporated into this presentation is a table of underground drift and raise sampling compiled from information derived from archival documents submitted as ‘Reports to Shareholders’ in the period 1946 to 1948. The gold mineralized zones of the Lingman Lake deposit, identified by this sampling, illustrate the high-grade nature of the gold deposit. Of particular note, are the gold grades obtained from the 2101 raise, North Zone, a 1.3 meter square access-way that was driven upward from the 275L to the 150L. Throughout its length of 30.5 meters and its encompassing volume within the zone, the raise averaged 28.51 gpt gold.
The results of this historic sampling,1946-1948 Underground Sampling, are tabled below:

Walter Hanych P.Geo., President and CEO of Signature Resources is a Qualified Person as defined by NI43-101 and is responsible for the technical information in this release.
The Lingman Lake gold property consists of four free hold patented claims and the twelve staked claims, comprising 616.8 hectares. The property hosts an historic estimate of 234,684 oz of gold* and includes what has historically been referred to as the Lingman Lake Gold Mine, an underground substructure consisting of a 126.5-meter shaft, and 3-levels at 46-meters, 84-meters and 122-meters depths.
*This historical resource estimate is based on prior data and reports obtained and prepared by previous operators, and information provided by governmental authorities. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to verify the classification of the mineral resource estimates in accordance with current CIM categories. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current NI 43-101-compliant mineral resource estimate. Establishing a current mineral resource estimate on the Lingman Lake deposit will require further evaluation, which the Company and its consultants intend to complete in due course. Additional information regarding historical resource estimates is available in the technical report entitled, “Technical Report on the Lingman Lake Property” dated December 20, 2013, prepared by Walter Hanych, P.Geo., and Frank Racicot, P.Geo., available on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com
