AFRICAN QUEEN MINES COMMENCES 2017 WORK PROGRAM AT ITS YELLOWJACKET GOLD PROJECT

Vancouver, British Columbia — AFRICAN QUEEN MINES LTD. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has now commenced its 2017 work program at its Yellowjacket Gold Project 9 km. E of Atlin, B.C. The Company now controls 51 mineral claims, 3 placer claims and one placer lease covering an aggregate of 291.54 km2 of strategic ground in the historically significant placer mining areas associated with many of the major creeks in the Atlin District. The permitted Yellowjacket Gold Mine is included within its tenures. The preponderance of its tenures is comprised of mineral claims covering structural trends within lithologies favourable for hosting hard rock gold deposits.

The 2017 work program is anticipated to include geochemical sampling, ground geophysics, a LIDAR aerial survey, mapping and a diamond drilling program of up to 2000 m to test the area below the existing Yellowjacket pit as well as a number of other strategic targets developed by the Company’s technical team. More than a dozen key targets have been identified within the Company’s tenures that are viewed as having the potential to host hard rock gold deposits.

Linda Dandy, P.Geo., a Qualified Person within the meaning of N.I. 43-101, is providing on site supervision and guidance at the Project. She previously oversaw exploration activities on the Project for the Company in 2016 as well as for a predecessor operator. Overall project leadership at Yellowjacket is being provided by Dr. Reinhard Ramdohr, who also was on site in 2016. Marthe Archambeault, P.Geo., a Q.P., is a recent addition to the Company’s technical team. She is a B.C. resident with over 25 years of exploration experience around the world. Marthe worked with the Company’s management for our predecessor company Pan African Mining Corp., where she oversaw development of the Mountain of Gold Project at Dabolava in Madagascar.
