Goldmining Receives Water Licence and Land Use Permits and Files Technical Report for the Yellowknife Gold Project, Northwest Territories, Canada
April 17, 2019
Vancouver, British Columbia – April 17, 2019 – GoldMining Inc. (the "Company" or "GoldMining") (TSX: GOLD; OTCQX: GLDLF) is pleased to announce that it has received a five-year Type B Water Licence ("WL") and Type A Land Use Permit ("LUP") from the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board ("MVLWB") for the Nicholas Lake-Ormsby Property at its 100% owned, 12,120 hectare, Yellowknife Gold Project (the "Yellowknife Project" or the "Project"). The Company also announces that, further to its press release dated March 4, 2019, it has filed a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") technical report (the "Technical Report") documenting an updated mineral resource for the Yellowknife Project.
The WL and LUP enable the Company to complete advanced exploration work including diamond drilling, underground development and operation of the existing camp, airstrip and winter road. Additionally, two-year extensions were granted by the MVLWB for two existing LUP's for the Goodwin Lake and Clan Lake Properties.
Garnet Dawson, CEO of GoldMining commented, "These new permits allow the Company to fast-track surface and underground exploration and development programs to further advance our Yellowknife Project. The ability to mobilize equipment, fuel and other supplies from Yellowknife along the winter road will substantially lower the overall cost of future exploration, development and production compared to many other projects in northern Canada that are not accessible by road. The Company has executed on a disciplined acquisition strategy of acquiring gold projects in the Americas. Low-cost advancements such as these permitting milestones at the Yellowknife Project de-risk and unlock value for future development."
Yellowknife Project Technical Report
The Technical Report, dated effective March 1, 2019, is titled "Independent Technical Report for the Yellowknife Gold Project, Northwest Territories, Canada." The Technical Report was authored by Ben Parsons, MAusIMM (CP), of SRK Consulting (U.S.) Inc., Dominic Chartier, PGeo, SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc. and Eric Olin (CP) of SRK Consulting (U.S.) Inc., who are qualified persons within the meaning of NI 43-101, are independent of the Company and have reviewed and approved the disclosure regarding the resource estimate for the Yellowknife Project disclosed herein.
The Yellowknife Project is located in the northern portion of the underexplored Yellowknife Greenstone Belt, host to historic gold mines including the Con and Giant Mines located adjacent to the city of Yellowknife and the Discovery Mine, located on GoldMining's property. The Project contains several gold deposits that were the subject of an updated mineral resource estimate as documented in the Technical Report. The mineral resource estimate includes a measured and indicated resource of 14,108,000 tonnes grading 2.33 g/t gold (1,059,000 ounces) and an inferred resource of 9,302,000 tonnes grading 2.47 g/t gold (739,000 ounces) using a variable cut-off of 0.5 and 1.5 g/t gold for pit constrained and potential underground resources, respectively (Table 1).

|Deposit Type||Deposit Area||Resource Category||Quantity||Average||Contained Metal|
|Tonnes||Au g/t||Au Oz|

|All||Total||Measured & Indicated||14,108||2.33||1,059|
Table 1 Notes:
- Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the mineral resources will be converted into mineral reserves. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing or other relevant issues.
- All quantities are rounded to the appropriate number of significant figures; consequently, sums may not add up due to rounding.
- Pit constrained resources with reasonable prospects of eventual economic extraction stated above a 0.50 g/t Au cut-off.
- Pit optimization is based on an assumed gold price of US$1,500/oz, metallurgical recovery of 90%, mining cost of US$2.00/t and processing and G&A cost of US$23.00/t.
- Underground resources with reasonable prospects of eventual economic extraction stated as contained within gold grade shapes above a 1.50 g/t Au cut-off.
- Mineral resource tonnage and grade with reasonable prospects of eventual economic extraction are reported as undiluted and reflect a bench height of 3.0 m.
