Toronto, Ontario, May 17, 2017 – Nighthawk Gold Corp. (“Nighthawk” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: NHK) is pleased to announce that it has received conditional approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) to graduate from the TSX Venture Exchange and list its common shares on the TSX. The Company will continue to use the stock symbol NHK for trading on the TSX.

The Company is also pleased to announce the appointment of Morris Prychidny as non-executive chairman of the board of directors of the Company.

The TSX listing is another major milestone for Nighthawk, and one that is expected to expand our investor base, improve liquidity, provide access to new sources of capital, and reduce our cost of capital – all of which will benefit our shareholders as we continue to advance Nighthawk’s flagship Colomac Gold Project, and our many other exciting prospects within the Indin Lake Property. On behalf of the board of directors I would like to thank Mr. Prychidny for accepting this new role as Chairman of the Board as we embark on an exciting year at Nighthawk.”
