Baru Gold Corp (“Baru Gold” or “The Company”) announces that, subject to the receipt of approval by the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V"), it has retained Generation IACP Inc.

Generation will not receive any common shares or options as compensation. Generation does not currently own any securities of Baru Gold; however, Generation and its clients may acquire a direct interest in the securities of the Company.
Baru Gold’s CEO Terry Filbert comments, “We welcome Generation’s expertise in advising and helping improve Baru Gold’s liquidity as our team continues to advance Sangihe Gold project to production and beyond. Having a proven and experienced market maker on our stock should improve trading efficiency, visibility, the overall valuation of our Company, and facilitate new and existing investors in updating their share positions in the market.”

The initial term of the Generation Agreement will last 6 months, and such term will be automatically renewed for subsequent 6-month periods unless terminated earlier by 30 days prior written notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Generation shall have the right to terminate the agreement at any time upon prior written notice.
ABOUT SANGIHE GOLD PROJECT
The Sangihe gold-silver project is located on the island of Sangihe off the northern coast of Sulawesi and has an existing National Instrument 43-101 inferred mineral resource of 114,700 indicated and 105,000 inferred ounces of gold as reported in the Company's "Independent Technical Report on the Mineral Resource Estimates of the Binebase and Bawone Deposits, Sangihe Project, North Sulawesi, Indonesia" dated May 30, 2017. Only 10% of the gold bearing area has been explored.
Readers are cautioned that mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The Company's 70-percent interest in the Sangihe-mineral-tenement contract of work ("CoW") is held through PT Tambang Mas Sangihe (TMS). The remaining 30-percent interest in TMS is held by three Indonesian corporations. The term of the Sangihe CoW agreement is for 30 years upon commencement of the production phase of the project.
The Company intends to proceed to production without the benefit of first establishing mineral reserves supported by a feasibility study. The Company cautions readers that the any production decision made by the Company will not be based on a NI 43-101 feasibility study of mineral reserves that demonstrates economic and technical viability and as such, there may be involved increased uncertainty and various technological and economic risks such as the interpretation of drill results; the geology, grade and continuity of mineral deposits; the possibility that future exploration, development or mining results will not be consistent with our expectations; commodity and currency price fluctuation; failure to obtain adequate financing; regulatory, recovery rates, refinery costs, and other relevant conversion factors, permitting and licensing risks; general market and mining exploration risks and production and economic risks related to design and engineering, manufacturing, technological processes and test procedures and the risk that the project’s output will not be salable at a price that will cover the project’s operating and maintenance costs.
