Bravada Expands Relationship with Goldspike to Explore Its North Lone Mountain Gold/Zinc Property in Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 2, 2015) - Bravada Gold Corporation ("Bravada" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BVA) (FRANKFURT:BRT) has signed a Letter of Intent with Goldspike Exploration Inc. ("Goldspike") to explore the Company's North Lone Mountain property (the "Property"), located along the Battle Mountain-Eureka Gold trend in central Nevada. Goldspike controls the Lone Mountain Zinc project, located approximately 10 kilometers to the southeast where Goldspike is delineating high-grade zinc mineralization and has an option to purchase a 100% interest through payments of cash, shares, and a retained royalty Bravada's South Lone Mountain property (see NR-08-14 for details of that agreement). South Lone Mountain is adjacent to the Lone Mountain Zinc property and soil geochemistry indicates that mineralization extends onto Bravada's claims.

The North Lone Mountain agreement allows Goldspike to earn a 50% interest in the property by funding a work program of US$150,000 over two years, after which the companies will form a joint venture to further explore and develop the property. Bravada will be operator during the earn-in period. Should either party be diluted to a 10% working interest, its interest will revert to a 1% NSR for base metals and a 1.5% NSR for precious metals. An underlying vendor also holds a royalty on the property of a 1% NSR for all metals and which can be reduced to 0.5% NSR for a cash payment of $3,000,000. No payments are due to the underlying vendor other than production royalties. Please note that Goldspike has announced a name change to Nevada Zinc Corporation effective March 6, 2015.

President Joe Kizis commented, "We are pleased to arrange with Goldspike to provide funding and expertise in the exploration of our two properties while it develops its main zinc-rich property. Goldspike's continuing success at the Lone Mountain property makes it an ideal partner to further explore and develop the North Lone Mountain property for both zinc and gold."
