The Company clarifies that the Initial Exploration Target is only "conceptual in nature" and it is not an "estimate" of mineral resources. The Company retracts the use of the word "estimate" in conjunction with the calculation of the Initial Exploration Target.

The Company cautions investors that the potential quantities and grades of the Initial Exploration Target are conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource. The exploration target therefore does not represent, and should not be construed to be, an estimate of a mineral resource or mineral reserve. It is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.

The Company included photographs of selected core intervals in its previous news release. The Company cautions investors that photos of these selective intervals are of high-grade gold mineralization and are not representative of the average mineralization hosted on the property.

The Company has commenced engineering work to support an application for a Use Permit from Nevada County which will include an application for full commercial mining with onsite mineral processing. The Company will prepare design work necessary to support permit applications in order to advance the project. This engineering work requires assumptions in regard to planned throughputs and mining methods.

The Company cautions investors that no technical report has been filed to support that this rate of production can be achieved or that certain mining methods will be economic or successful.

The Company has not made a production decision at the Idaho-Maryland Gold Project at this time. The Company cautions that projects put into production without first establishing mineral reserves, supported by a technical report, and completion of a feasibility study have a much higher risk of economic and/or technical failure.

The Company noted in its previous news release that broken "ore" inventory in historic shrinkage stopes was excluded from the Initial Exploration Target. The Company retracts the use of the word "ore" for this material. "Ore" is a restricted term only to be used when referencing mineral reserves. No mineral resources or reserves have been delineated on the property. It is uncertain if this broken rock may be recoverable in the future.

The Company previously provided information regarding the mineral potential to depth below and excluded from the Initial Exploration Target. The Company believes that these drill intercepts are important. However, the Company cautions investors that these deep intercepts are at great distances from the existing underground working of the Idaho Maryland Mine and the Initial Exploration Target and the potential and significance of these deep drill intersections are unknown at this time.

Benjamin Mossman, P.Eng, CEO of Rise Gold, is the qualified person for the historic production disclosure and Initial Exploration Target contained in this news release. Historic production at the Idaho-Maryland Mine is disclosed in the Technical Report on the Idaho-Maryland Project dated June 1st, 2017 and available on www.sedar.com.
