Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 15, 2020) - Freeman Gold Corp. (CSE: FMAN) (FSE: 3WU) ("Freeman" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Moon #100 and Moon #101 unpatented mining claims ("Moon Claims"), located within the historical resource area of the Company's 100% owned Lemhi gold project, located in Idaho, USA ("Lemhi" or "Project"). The Moon Claims are located towards the northern portion of the historical resource area in the immediate vicinity of historical drill holes 86065, 93002 and 93005 which contain significant gold mineralization including both broad (193.55 meters of 1.8 grams per tonne gold ('g/t Au')) and high grade (57.91 meters of 4.09 g/t Au) gold intercepts (Table 1).

|Hole_ID||Year||Type of Drilling||From m||To m||Interval** m||g/t Au|
**Intervals are core-length. True width is estimated between 70 to 90% of core length.
Will Randall, President & CEO, commented, "When Freeman acquired the Lemhi gold project management was cognizant that two transactions were required to substantially de-risk the Project's property package. The first item was to extinguish the back-in rights (please refer to announcement dated September 8, 2020), and the second was to acquire the remaining unowned claims within the resource area. The acquisition of the Moon Claims achieves this objective and mitigates the risk of limiting future resource estimates by excluding any ounces contained within the claims and, just as importantly, limiting further ounces due to pit design constraints. The Moon Claims have historical drilling with significant intercepts within and in the immediate vicinity of the claims that we can now incorporate into future work. Freeman now has a complete property package without any back-in rights. As a result, we can focus on our ongoing drill campaign without property constraints to maximize the potential resource."
Details of the Transaction
Freeman acquired 100% ownership of the Moon Claims pursuant to a Purchase and Sale Agreement between Freeman and the previous owner of the Moon Claims (the "Seller"), pursuant to which Freeman paid the Seller cash consideration of US$150,000.00 as well as issuing 375,000 common shares in the capital of Freeman to the Seller. The transaction was not subject to a finder's fee or brokerage commission.
