Garibaldi Drills into Nickel-Copper Rich Massive Sulphides Northwest and Southeast of Discovery Zone
|Vancouver, British Columbia, October 31, 2018 - Garibaldi Resources (TSX.V: GGI) (the "Company" or "Garibaldi") is pleased to announce that assay results for an additional two drill holes at Nickel Mountain have expanded the Discovery Zone to the northwest and southeast.|
Dr. Peter Lightfoot, Technical Advisor for Garibaldi, commented: "When compared to magmatic nickel sulphide deposits around the world, massive sulphides at Nickel Mountain have unusually high grades of nickel, copper, cobalt and precious metals.
"The Discovery Zone massive sulphides in the footwall at E&L form a continuous wide sheet of mineralization that appears, despite structural modification, to have been injected as a significant pulse of primary magmatic sulphide," Dr. Lightfoot concluded.

Combined 1% nickel-copper is a minimum threshold for comparative analysis of composites.
**Denotes massive sulphides (>75% sulphides). *Denotes semi-massive sulphides (50% to 75% sulphides).
Intervals are core lengths (true widths unknown at this time)

Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC)
Garibaldi Resources has applied a rigorous quality assurance/quality control program at the E&L Nickel Mountain Project using best industry practice. All core was logged by a professional geoscientist and selected intervals were sampled. NQ2 drill core was sawn in half and each sample half was placed in a marked sample bag with a corresponding sample tag then sealed. The remaining half core is retained in core boxes that are stored at a secure facility in Smithers, British Columbia. Chain of custody of samples was recorded and maintained for all samples from the drill to the laboratory. All diamond drilling sample batches included 5% QA/QC samples consisting of certified blanks, standards and field duplicates. Two certified ore assay laboratory standards and one blank standard were used in the process and were supplied by CDN Resource Laboratories Ltd., an independent laboratory located in Langley, British Columbia. Samples were submitted to SGS Canada Inc. in Vancouver, British Columbia, an ISO 9001: 2008 certified lab, for base metal, sulphur and precious metal analysis using Inductivity Coupled Plasma (ICP), Fire Assay (FA) and Leco methods.
Samples were prepared by crushing the entire sample to 75% passing 2mm, riffle splitting 250g and pulverizing the split to better than 85% passing 75 microns. Gold, Platinum and Palladium were analyzed using a 30-gram fire assay and ICP-AES. Total sulfur and total carbon were analyzed using a Leco method. Nickel, copper, cobalt, silver and base metals were analyzed by sodium peroxide fusion and ICP-MS.
The performance on the blind standards, blanks and duplicates achieved high levels of accuracy and reproducibility and has been verified by Everett Makela, a Qualified Person as defined by NI-43-101.
