Highland Project Update
The Highland gold/silver project, located in Nevada's prolific Walker Lane gold trend, is an example of Bravada's modified Project Generator approach. The Company's 2020 exploration program is underway and is being funded by Option/Joint- Venture partner OceanaGold US Holdings Inc. ("OceanaGold"), a wholly owned subsidiary of OceanaGold Corp. Bravada has completed additional field work that firmed up drill specs and has submitted a drilling permit for 12 sites on two of the targets: the Big Hammer Target and the Geyser Target, which are approximately 2.5km apart along the western margin of the Eastern Graben. One or two of the sites will be drilled at the Big Hammer Target in 2020, beginning late August or early September, and targeting is underway for planned 2021 drilling at the Geyser Target. OceanaGold may earn up to a 75% interest in the Project after expenditures of US$10 million after which Bravada will participate in joint-venture exploration and development on a 75/25% basis (for details, see News Release NR-09-18, December 20, 2018).
President Joe Kizis commented, "Exploration in Nevada has come a long way from the days of heading out with a burro and a gold pan. Advances in geochemistry, geophysics, and 3D modeling combined with a fuller understanding of geologic processes that create "ore" provide modern explorers with tools to find deposits that do not stick out of the ground. Mapping sinter (the silica-rich rock formed by hot springs) is a relatively newtool that can be combined with other tools to discover the high-grade Au/Ag deposits that often develop well belowthe paleo-surface where sinter is deposited. The Eastern Graben area of the Highland project is uniquely suited for this type of study due to extensive preservation of sinter over several square kilometers. Sinter mapping can identify conduits (fossil geysers), which indicate channel ways for the hot fluids that may have deposited gold and silver where they boiled along the channel ways beneath the barren sinter."

Bravada is an exploration company with a portfolio of high-quality properties in Nevada, one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world. Bravada has successfully identified and advanced properties with the potential to host high-margin deposits while successfully attracting partners to fund later stages of project development. Three of Bravada's ten Nevada properties are being funded by partners. Bravada's value is underpinned by a substantial gold and silver resource with a positive PEA at Wind Mountain, and the Company has significant upside potential from possible new discoveries at its exploration properties.
Since 2005, the Company signed 32 earn-in joint-venture agreements for its properties with 19 publicly traded companies, as well as a similar number of property-acquisition agreements with private individuals. Bravada currently has 10 projects in its portfolio, consisting of 764 claims for approximately 6,100 ha in two of Nevada's most prolific gold trends. Most of the projects host encouraging drill intercepts of gold and already have drill targets developed.
