Vancouver, British Columbia – June 2, 2022 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Visionary Gold Corp. (TSXV: VIZ) (“Visionary” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the discovery of several new gold and copper exploration targets on its recently-staked Anderson Ridge claims located 32 kilometres (“km”) west of the Wolf Gold Project in Fremont County, Wyoming. A total of 135 rock chip samples and 22 soil samples have been collected, including high-grade samples of up to 15.95 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold and 27.7 g/t silver, and a separate sample of up to 6.18% copper.
CEO Wes Adams comments: “We came to central Wyoming eighteen months ago and began systematically exploring a historically productive orogenic gold belt using modern techniques resulting in the discovery of multiple styles of gold and copper mineralization regionally. It is rare to identify as many prospects as we have in our first full season of exploration, and especially rare that each of Visionary’s prospects are near powerlines, accessible by road and located within an hour’s drive of our headquarters in Lander, Wyoming. We are already advancing our recently announced Tin Cup and Black Rock prospects with geophysical surveys, and are moving toward drilling our Wolf, Black Rock and Lewiston-Miz targets in July. These new discoveries at Anderson Ridge represent exciting new targets, which are a key part of our project pipeline. Drilling multiple targets this year, whilst advancing others, provides the Company the best chance for success in both the near and long-term.”
Anderson Ridge Property
Visionary’s Anderson Ridge Property is located approximately 32 km northeast of the Company’s Wolf Gold Project and 50 km southwest of Lander, Wyoming. It consists of four separate contiguous claim blocks covering an area of approximately 4200 acres (17 square km). Gold and copper values were collected from veins and interpreted shear zones within a regional fault corridor, adjacent to granitic intrusives. Mineralization at Anderson Ridge displays similar geochemistry to Visionary’s previously announced Lewiston-Miz target, where elevated levels of pathfinder elements including arsenic, bismuth, tungsten, and tellurium are present in high-grade gold and copper samples. Both targets have been interpreted as structurally controlled orogenic gold targets with possible secondary silver and copper mineralization. Additional geologic mapping, soil sampling and magnetic surveying on the Anderson Ridge claims will be the next steps toward identifying specific drill targets.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) Technical Disclosure
Rock and Soil Sample QA/QC
Rock samples were analyzed by crushing and pulverizing 250g to >85% passing 70 microns, final analysis is by 30g fire assay (Au-ICP21). Additionally select rock samples were analyzed by aqua regia digestion on the prepared pulps (crushing and pulverizing 250g to >85% passing 70 microns) and analyzed my ICP-MS for 41 elements (ME-MS41). Note, due to the sample charge size used of 0.5g in ME-MS41 Au determinations using this method are semi-quantitative.
Soil samples were collected by hand using long-nosed shovels from C horizon soils where possible. Approximately 0.5 kilograms of soil sample was collected; organic material and gravel were removed from the sample. Samples were kept at the Company’s secure, locked storage facility until shipped direct to ALS Geochemistry’s preparation laboratory in Elko, Nevada. Soils were then dried at 60 degrees Celsius and sieved to 180 microns (80 mesh). Twenty-five grams of sample is digested with Aqua Regia and analyzed by ICP-MS. Multielement analysis was carried out by ALS Geochemistry of Reno, NV (Code: AuME-ST43), a super trace multielement package that analyzes for 53 elements including Au, platinum (“Pt”) and palladium (“Pd”).
QA/QC included the following: industry certified standards were inserted into the sample stream along with analytical blank material at the Company’s secure facility; sample duplicates were collected in the field. 153 QA/QC samples of 3211 total soil samples were applied to the sample stream, or approximately 5 percent.

Technical Disclosure Advisory
The scientific and technical information in this announcement as it relates to exploration results at the Anderson Ridge Prospect is based on information reviewed by Mr. Alan Roberts. Mr Roberts (MSc: Mineral Exploration & Geophysics) is a Senior Consultant to Visionary Gold Corp. and is a Certified Professional Geologist (AIPG: CPG#11260) through the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG), an organization whose members are recognized as Qualified Persons pursuant to NI 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”). Mr Roberts has sufficient experience in the exploration and development of the style of mineralisation under consideration to act as a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101. Mr Roberts consents to the inclusion in this announcement of the matters based on his information in the form and context in which it appears. Mr. Roberts is an independent consultant to the company.
It should be noted that the potential quantity and grade of the exploration targets disclosed in this press release is conceptual in nature, that there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource, and that it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource as per the NI 43-101 reporting standards.
This news release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation.
