Phase I Exploration Continues to Expand Mineralized Zones with 1.8 metres of 16.33 g/t

November 1, 2017

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Providence Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV: PHD) ("Providence" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from underground sampling of the Company's Providence Gold Mine in central California. The results demonstrate continued success on its Phase I exploration program with the presence of high grade gold mineralization adjacent to former stoped (mined) areas of the mine.

Results from the sampling of the various workings in the South Mineralized Shoot on the 600 foot level property are as follows:

The above sample results verify the historical results for the Providence Mine South Shoot. The South Shoot is located approximately 70 metres to the south of the North Shoot.

Previous work has shown the Providence property to contain gold bearing vein system with several workings being located. As a result of the ongoing exploration success, the Company has dispatched its exploration team to the property to complete further soil geochemical sampling, outcrop mapping and sampling. The program commenced this week. The purpose of the program will be to verify the potential strike length within the property's 2.2 km long property boundary.

"We are excited that our results have validated the historically reported production and confirm the potential of significant gold mineralization, along the 2.2 km strike and down-dip," said Ron Coombes, President & CEO of the Company.

QA&QC Procedures

The Company followed industry standards in its QA&QC procedures. A certified standard sample, or a blank or a field duplicate sample is inserted every 10 samples before the set of samples is sent to the Laboratory. This procedure is applied to all rock chip and channel samples. The Company sent all of the samples to Bureau Veritas Laboratory in Reno, a laboratory that meets International Standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Certification.
