Cabral Files Amended National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report on SEDAR
TSX VENTURE: CBR
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - December 24, 2018) - Cabral Gold Inc. (TSXV: CBR) (OTC Pink: CBGZF) ("Cabral" or the "Company") announces that it has filed an amended technical report on SEDAR. The report entitled "Technical Report On The Cuiú Cuiú Project, Mineral Resource Estimate, Pará State, North-Central Brazil" and dated December 19, 2018 supersedes the report dated "July 23, 2018" that was previously filed on SEDAR.
The amended report was prepared by Micon International Ltd. in order to comply with National Instrument 43-101 and does not contain any material changes to the mineral resource estimate from the previously filed report. The new report does however clarify certain details, principally the removal of disclosure of a version of the resource estimate prepared with uncapped grades shown in comparison to an uncapped historical estimate for the property, the removal of all comparisons to the historical resource estimate and the removal of summaries and discussions of global, unconstrained mineral resources, some of which may not have a reasonable expectation of economic extraction. It is made clear that all of the field work, performed in support of the mineral resource estimate disclosed in this report, was carried out by the previous owners of the property, Magellan Minerals Ltd. Further, certain figures were added to the Mineral Resource chapter and clarification was provided of the cut-off grade determination for the mineral resource estimate.

About Cabral Gold Inc.
The Company is a junior resource company engaged in the identification, exploration and development of mineral properties, with a primary focus on gold properties located in Brazil.
The Company owns the Cuiú Cuiú gold project, which covers the largest of the historical placer gold camps in the Tapajós region of northern Brazil, having yielded an estimated 2MMoz of gold from the overall 20-30MMoz gold produced during the Tapajós gold rush. Placer workings cover over 850ha on the property but are largely exhausted. The few remaining artisanal workers now process gold from palaeo-valley placer deposits and in places exploit high-grade gold mineralization from quartz veins in saprolite (shallow highly weathered bedrock).
Earlier this year, Cabral reported an updated NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate totalling 5.9MM tonnes grading 0.9 g/t Au (Indicated) and 19.5MM tonnes grading 1.2 g/t Au (Inferred), or 0.2MM ounces and 0.8MM ounces of gold, respectively. That estimate was based on four deposits drilled prior to the cessation of exploration in 2012.
The Company's current program is designed to improve understanding and expand existing prospects, evaluate newly identified discoveries, prioritize drill targets, and to build upon the existing resource inventory.
