Vancouver, Canada – November 17, 2016 – Nexus Gold Corp. ("Nexus" or the "Company") (TSX-V: NXS / OTC: NXXGF) is pleased to announce the listing of its common shares for trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the Symbol N6E (WKN: A2AS8N, ISIN: CA65341L1040).

The Company’s common shares are now dual-listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, NASDAQ OTC and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The Frankfurt Stock Exchange is the world's 10th largest stock exchange by market capitalization and largest of Germany’s seven stock exchanges. The Company anticipates the Frankfurt listing will increase trading liquidity and facilitate investment in the Company by investors across Europe. This increased exposure to worldwide markets enables Europeans to trade the Company’s common shares in Euros.

“As our Company continues to grow we feel reaching a larger global audience is an important component to our future success,” said Nexus Gold Corp President and CEO, Peter Berdusco.  “This listing is a direct response to the interest generated over the past few months from European investors towards the Company and its West African exploration presence. It will now aid in the maturation of those relationships and assist in expanding our shareholder base,” continued Mr. Berdusco.

The Company will maintain its primary listing on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Burkina Faso Update

The Company is currently initiating due diligence on a potential acquisition that would add an additional prospective gold project to its portfolio. 

Additionally, Nexus geologist Warren Robb is on site in Burkina Faso and is in the process of organizing crews and equipment.  With the completion of the rainy season and local crops harvested the Company anticipates further work updates in the coming weeks.

Bouboulou Gold Concession

The Bouboulou Gold concession is a near-surface, advanced stage gold exploration target located in a known gold belt, within a prolific and highly active area. The property has previously been drilled by RoxgoldInc, Riverstone Resources and Boliden.  To date four zones of gold mineralization have been identified on the property.

Bouboulou was held by Boliden in 1997 as part of a much larger land package.  Boliden completed regional Rapid Air Blast ("RAB") drilling, comprising 25,400 meters. Included in this total was infill drilling which defined a northeast trending gold anomaly measuring 13 km by 2 to 6 km wide. The mineralization was described as disseminated sulphides in tuffs and dacites.

Historical Drill Results

Riverstone Resources completed several programs of regional and detailed geological mapping and sampling prior to the Roxgoldwork programs. Rock sampling and trenching within the Boliden anomaly returned gold grades from 1.09 to 19.16 g/t.  Riverstone also completed an IP geophysical survey over the area of the highest gold values, and Roxgold drill tested a number of these targets.   The following tables represent historical drill results as reported by Roxgold.

The country has a stable political setting with a pro-mining and foreign investment stance.Burkina Faso is the fastest growing gold producer in Africa, and was the 4th largest gold producer in Africa in 2012. Eight new mines have been commissioned there over the past six years.Thecountry has excellent geological potential. The Greenstone Belts that host all of the major deposits in Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire continue northward into Burkina Faso. Burkina Faso has undergone less than 15 years of modern mineral exploration, remaining under explored in comparison to neighbouring Ghana and Mali; both of which host world class gold mines in the same belts of Birimian rocks.
