April 10, 2017 — Vancouver, British Columbia — Marlin Gold Mining Ltd. (TSX-V: MLN) (“Marlin” or the “Company”) is pleased to report two high grade intercepts in drill hole 17TRD44 at the Company’s wholly owned La Trinidad mine in Sinaloa, Mexico. Hole 17TRD44 was drilled to test an area in the southern part of the high grade HS Zone where 11TRSN019 (sonic drill hole) provided the only previous drilling information in the area. The upper portion of 17TRD44 not only confirms the high grade intercept of 11TRSN019, which hit 8.07 g/t gold over 12.7 meters (see press release dated July 21, 2011), but it is positively reconciling to the current block model. 17TRD44 is completely open to the west, where there is no drilling information, and the nearest drill hole to the north is 16TRD22, which hit 6.91 g/t gold over 11.0 meters 59 meters away (see press release dated May 18, 2016). The Company plans to be mining the area around the upper high grade intercept of 17TRD44 by the end of 2017.
