Vancouver, May 15, 2024 - Scorpio Gold Corp. (TSXV: SGN) (OTC Pink: SRCRF) (FSE: RY9) ("Scorpio Gold", "Scorpio", or the "Company") is pleased to announce the engagement of Daniel Kunz & Associates LLC ("Daniel Kunz & Associates" or "DKA") as technical consultants to lead the Company's exploration program at its Manhattan District Properties. DKA will be playing an integral role in the planning and execution of Scorpio's upcoming 2024 Manhattan exploration program, including extensive modelling of the 1,200 plus historic drillholes, targeting for the forthcoming drill program, and review and consolidation of historic data. The core goal of the 2024 Manhattan exploration program is to work towards a 43-101 compliant resource later this year.

Daniel & Kunz and Associates, founded and led by Daniel Kunz, is a mining consulting firm based in Boise, Idaho. Mr. Kunz has significant experience in international mining, engineering, and construction, including marketing, business development, management, accounting, finance, and operations. Mr. Kunz was Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Ivanhoe Mines Ltd. ("Ivanhoe Mines") from November 1997 until October 2000, and then was President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Ivanhoe Mines from November 2000 until March 2003. Mr. Kunz was one of the driving forces in taking Ivanhoe Mines into Mongolia where, in 2001, the Company discovered Oyu Tolgoi, one of the world's largest copper-gold deposits. During his seven-year tenure, the market capitalization value of Ivanhoe Mines increased from $400 million to $4.4 billion.

More recently, Mr. Kunz was the founder, CEO, President and Director of Prime Mining Corp. ("Prime"), until he stepped down as CEO and President in January 2024. Mr. Kunz was instrumental in a number of significant milestones for Prime, including Prime's graduation to the main board of the Toronto Stock Exchange, its updated mineral resource estimate for the Los Reyes Project, and its inaugural sustainability report, as well as significant financings.

"Working with Dan and his team at DKA is a critical step for Scorpio as we move forward with exploration on Manhattan. Dan's background and proven track record of economic discoveries not only enhances our strategic planning, but also validates the immense potential and opportunity we see for value creation at the high-grade Manhattan District," said Zayn Kalyan, CEO of Scorpio.

Alongside Mr. Kunz, Peter Parsley, a senior associate with DKA, has been engaged to work on the Manhattan Exploration Program. Mr. Parsley brings a valuable knowledge base, skillset, and approach to the Manhattan District, having worked with Echo Bay Mines, the former operator of the Manhattan Mine in the 1980s. Mr. Parsley has over 38 years of varied experience in exploration, mine permitting, development, compliance, and mine disturbance reclamation. He also has extensive economic minerals experience and has had reporting responsibilities in both Canada and the United States. He worked for Tenneco Minerals Co. as Chief Geologist and was responsible for regional exploration programs and mine development in the Goldstrike District in southwestern Utah. He also conducted regional reconnaissance programs in Nevada for Tenneco Minerals.
