Canadian Gold Miner Sampling at Cook Showing in South Kirkland Returns of up to 8.13 Grams per Tonne Gold in Selected Grab Samples

Sudbury, September 14, 2017 – Canadian Gold Miner Corp (“CGM”, the Company) and Transition Metals Corp. (XTM – TSX.V, “Transition”) present new sampling results from CGM’s South Kirkland project. Assay results from 32 grab samples collected in the vicinity of the Cook showing returned gold values ranging from <0.001 to 8.130 g/t Au (see Table 1). The Cook showing is the second of 7 gold mineralized zones that the Company has identified in the southeastern portion of the South Kirkland project located 10 kilometres southeast of Larder Lake Ontario. Figure 1 shows the location of the Cook showing within an outline of CGM’s south Kirkland project area (as denoted in dark green). Figure 2 illustrates sample locations and values. Grab samples are selective samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property or from this showing.

Transition owns 50% stake in Canadian Gold Miner.

CGM CEO Greg Collins, P.Geo commented, “At the Cook showing we have exposed a strong alteration system along an open strike length of >100m in areas of historical exploration trenches that have not been worked since the 1930’s due to difficulty in accessing this remote part of the property. We are currently trenching this showing to further evaluate the potential of this very prospective gold system near the Lincoln-Nipissing Break.

Cook Showing:

Located approximately 5 kilometres west of the Lafond deposit (see news release of July 27, 2017), the Cook showing consists of a series of northeast-trending quartz stringers ranging from 2 to 30 centimetres in width and hosting trace amounts of pyrite, molybdenite, and galena exposed along the length of a 42.6 metre long historical trench. Four historical samples from the trench returned 3.13 to 5.6 g/t Au over 0.4 to 1.34 metres¹. In 1992, sampling by Cameco Gold Inc. returned grab sample values ranging from 0.07 g/t Au to 16.63 g/t Au. In 2013, Gold Fields Limited reported a 17.8 g/t gold assay in a grab sample from the same mineralized exposure².

South Kirkland Exploration Plans

The Company is continuing to work on the current exploration program of mechanical trenching, detailed mapping, and channel sampling which is scheduled for completion within 10 days.  Following completion of the current program and review of data from the trenching work now in progress, the Company intends to initiate a 1,500 to 3,500 metre diamond drilling program on targets generated at the Lafond and Cook showings.
