Contango ORE, Inc. Announces Earnings


Contango ORE, Inc. ("CORE" or the "Company") (OTCQB:CTGO) announced
today it filed its Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2018 with the
Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Company reported a net loss of $6.2 million or $1.09 per basic and
diluted share for the year ended June 30, 2018 compared to a loss of
$2.8 million or $0.62 per basic and diluted share for the same period
last year. The increase in the net loss is primarily due to resumption
of the Company making capital contributions to Peak Gold, LLC, as a
result of Royal Gold earning its full 40% interest in the joint venture.
Accordingly, the Company has resumed recognizing its allocable share of
the Peak Gold, LLC losses. The increase in net loss is also due to an
increase in non-cash stock compensation expense resulting from higher
stock prices.

Our President and CEO, Brad Juneau said, "We expect to receive the
Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") on our Main Peak and North Peak
areas by the end of September 2018. Exploratory drilling is ongoing at
Peak Gold Project, to evaluate a porphyry prospect at North Saddle
located approximately 2 kilometers north of our North Peak resource
area. Assays have been received on the 2 O'Clock and 8 O'Clock skarn
prospects with no significant gold intercepts encountered."
