Viva Gold Corp.
Viva Gold to Commence Drill Program
at Tonopah Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BC – May 17, 2018 – Viva Gold Corp. (TSX-Venture: VAU) (the “Company” or “Viva”) is pleased to announce that its work plan for the Tonopah Gold Project has been approved by the BLM and that it is commencing a 28 hole, reverse circulation drill program at the property. The high-grade, advanced stage Tonopah gold project is located on the prolific Walker Lane trend of western Nevada near the town of Tonopah.

The focus of this program is to initially confirm and test extensions to known, high-grade gold bearing structures in the Discovery, Dauntless, 121 and other zones. Historic drilling in the Discovery zone included intercepts of 45.9 meters of 7.68 gpt gold in drill hole MW11-09c and 21.6 meters of 5.83 gpt gold in MW11-07c. Similar intercepts can be found at structural junctions in the cores of the other known zones. The average depth of drilling, in these near surface targets will be approximately 150 meters.

Subsequent drilling will focus on both step-out and in-fill drilling between these major known zones and along extensions identified in Viva’s recent resource modelling work. “We believe that success in this program will pave the way to achieving Viva’s goal of expanding the Tonopah project to over 1.0 million contained ounces of gold resource”, states James Hesketh, President & CEO. The Tonopah property contains a near-sur

face low-sulfidation epithermal gold system which includes near vertical quartz-adularia-gold veins hosted by the Palmetto Formation argillite and the overlying Tertiary rhyolitic volcanics within a low-angle zone of mineralization which includes and often parallels an erosion surface discontinuity at the top of the Palmetto. Mineralization has been identified in a series of north-striking extensional structural zones within an overall mineralized trend along the north-northwest Walker Lane trend, covering an area over 2,000 meters long and 300 meters wide.

All technical information which is included in this statement has been reviewed and approved by Thomas C. Matthews of Gustavson Associates LLC. Mr. Matthews is independent of the Company and a qualified person, pursuant to the meaning of such terms in National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
