Vancouver, British Columbia--(March 23, 2021) - Snowy Owl Gold Corp. (CSE: SNOW) ("Snowy Owl Gold", "Snowy" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to acquire a 100% interest into additional mineral claims located near its Golden Eagle gold property in the Abitibi region of the Province of Quebec, Canada. The newly acquired property, the Panache Gold property, consists of 12 mining claims covering a total area of 678 hectares located approximately 175 kilometres (as the crow flies) northeast of Val d'Or, Quebec, Canada.
As shown on the attached Figure 1, the Panache Property is surrounded by Osisko, and Bonterra Resources claims and is in the vicinity of multiple gold deposits. The majority of the Panache claims are mapped to be underlain by favourable greenstone belt geology. Geological structural features which may represent exploration targets are mapped to extend into the Property, these include a northeast-southwest anticline, and a fault is mapped to pass through the northern-most claims.
The Snowy technical team is currently working on compiling historical data to design an exploration plan to complement the planned exploration at the Golden Eagle Property, approximately 30km south east of the Panache.
"The Snowy team is pleased to continue expanding our land position in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, and looks forward to an aggressive exploration season on our assets starting this spring," says Raymond Wladichuk, CEO of Snowy Owl Gold Corp.

Snowy Owl acquired the mining claims comprising the Panache Gold property from a group of arm's length parties pursuant to a property purchase agreement dated March 19, 2021 (the "Effective Date").

The sellers will retain a 2.0 % NSR from any future production. Snowy Owl has the right to reduce the 2.0% NSR to a 1.0% NSR by paying $1,000,000.
The issuance of the common shares is subject to obtaining all required regulatory approvals, including that of the CSE. The common shares will be subject to a "hold" period of four months and one day for their date of issuance.
