EnGold Drills 21.70 Metres Grading 1.22% Copper, 0.17 Grams Per Tonne Gold, & 5.96 gpt Silver & 12.2 m Grading 1.82% Copper, 0.41 gpt Gold, 9.96 gpt Silver at Lac La Hache Property
Vancouver, British Columbia (Newsfile Corp. - April 10, 2017) - David H. Brett, President & CEO, EnGold Mines Ltd., (TSXV: EGM), ('EnGold' or the 'Company') reports that drill holes G17-03 & G17-04 returned assay values of 21.70 metres grading 1.22% copper, 0.17 grams per tonne gold, 5.96 gpt Silver and 12.2m grading 1.82% copper, 0.41 gpt gold, 9.96 gpt silver respectively at the Company's 100% owned Lac La Hache Property in the Cariboo region of British Columbia (the 'Property'). Hole G17-03 was collared 50m east of discovery hole G16-01 & G17-04 was collared 50 m west of hole G16-01. The mineralized intercepts occur at the same stratigraphic levels at 337.3 and 336 m downhole. The holes are vertical and intercepts are believed to be true width. Please see table below for detailed results. Assay results from hole G17-02, collared 71 m north of hole G16-01, are still pending.
'These results demonstrate consistency of structure and grade in the areas drilled so far,' said EnGold VP of Exploration Rob Shives, P.Geo. 'We're looking forward to testing the new and refined gravity anomalies in the coming weeks.'
Drilling at the Property is expected to recommence with two drills in approximately 10 days. One of the drills will be deployed to test the previously reported new, highly intense gravity anomaly to the northwest of the discovery hole. The other drill will step out to the south of the discovery hole, where new gravity data indicates increasing potential for mineralization. Gravity crews continue to collect new survey data that will be added to the Company's analysis and assessment of the discovery area.
EnGold continues to update its maps and graphics which are being posted to the company's website as they become available.
'It's going to be a busy spring and summer at the Lac La Hache property,' said EnGold President & CEO David Brett. 'Our growing technical team is doing a great job managing the expanded program.'

About the Lac La Hache Property
The property lies within BC's Quesnel Trough mineral belt, which hosts several past and currently producing copper/gold/silver mines, including nearby Imperial Metals' Mount Polley copper-gold mine and New Gold Inc.'s New Afton copper-gold mine. The Company has drilled numerous prospects on the property, including Spout copper-magnetite-gold-silver deposit (for which a resource calculation has been reported and supported by an NI43-101 Technical Report), the gold-rich Aurizon gold-copper-silver prospect and recent new discoveries with porphyry and skarn copper/gold potential. Supported by significant local infrastructure including powerlines, all season road access, rail and other amenities, the Lac La Hache project demonstrates excellent logistics.
