Spanish Mountain Gold Ltd announced the engagement of a team of experienced consultants to conduct a new Preliminary Economic Assessment in accordance with standards mandated by NI 43-101 for the Spanish Mountain Gold Project located near Likely in central British Columbia, Canada.

Each member of the PEA team has been involved in the Project's previous studies and is familiar with its technical attributes. They will contribute in their respective areas of expertise as follows:

East Asia Minerals Extends Drilling at Miwah Gold Project
Columbus Provides Summary of Drilling Program to Date from Eastside Gold Project
Where Can You Mine for Gold?

Moose Mountain Technical Services - Lead Consultant, Mine Plan & Metallurgy
Discovery Consultants - Geology and Exploration
Giroux Consultants Ltd. - Resource Estimating
Knight PiƩsold Ltd. - Tailings, Water Balance & Permitting

The PEA will investigate the technical and economic viability as well as the quality of the Company's multi-million ounce gold resource; specifically its new two-zone project approach in which the resource's high-grade core (the First Zone) is expected to sustain a profitable stand-alone operation exceeding 20 years. The Company has recently announced a tentative mine plan for the First Zone at 20,000 tonnes per day (Nov. 22, 2016) and a streamlined flowsheet for the metallurgical recovery process (Jan. 31, 2017). The PEA is expected to capture the opportunities and potential savings associated with the planned lower production rate as identified in internal and external studies to date.

The Company expects to announce the results of the PEA in the second quarter of 2017.
