Vancouver, Canada – August 21, 2018 – Blackrock Gold Corporation (the “Company”) (TSXV: BRC)

Blackrock Gold is pleased to announce the results of voting at its Special and Annual General Meeting (the “Meeting”) of shareholders, which was held on August 17, 2018 in Vancouver, British Columbia. All but one of the matters submitted to the shareholders for approval as set out in the Company’s notice of meeting and information circular dated July 23, 2018, were approved by the requisite majority of votes cast at the Meeting. Shareholders approved setting the number of directors for the ensuing year at six (6), and the election of Deepak Malhotra, Hendrik van Alphen, Alan H.C. Carter, Thomas S. Bruington II, Catalin Kilofliski, and Gregory Schifrin as directors for the ensuing year.

Upon management’s review of the proxies submitted for the Meeting, management determined not to proceed at this time with seeking shareholder approval to amend the Company’s Articles and, therefore, the Company’s current Articles remain in effect.
The Company continues to diligently and methodically plan work on the Silver Cloud Project, and to build a highly qualified technical team to further advance the project. More information will be provided to the shareholders in coming weeks.
