Liberty Gold Releases Inaugural ESG Report
VANCOUVER, B.C. – Liberty Gold Corp. (TSX:LGD; OTCQX:LGDTF) ("Liberty Gold" or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the release of the company’s inaugural Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) Report, reflecting our commitment to responsible, transparent and ethical exploration and development.
The 2021 Environmental, Social and Governance Report provides a clear statement of our purpose as an exploration and development company and sets out the values under which the Company operates, both on a day-to-day basis and also over the longer term to guide strategic decision making.
Cal Everett, President & CEO of Liberty Gold stated, “We place great importance on protecting our environment and creating a positive impact on the communities we work in. Our progressive and innovative approach is demonstrated by our recent receipt of the 2022 Environmental Excellence Award from the State of Utah’s Department of Natural Resources and our voluntary program to plant 20,000 sagebrush seedlings to rehabilitate important habitat areas to support greater sage-grouse populations.”
The report includes both quantitative metrics and qualitative disclosures for our offices and site operations from January 1 to December 31, 2021. The report is aligned with the standards and framework of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board. Liberty Gold will continue to report on our performance on an annual basis.

ABOUT LIBERTY GOLD
Liberty Gold is focused on exploring for and developing open pit oxide deposits in the Great Basin of the United States, home to large-scale gold projects that are ideal for open-pit mining. This region is one of the most prolific gold-producing regions in the world and stretches across Nevada and into Idaho and Utah. We know the Great Basin and are driven to discover and advance big gold deposits that can be mined profitably in open-pit scenarios. Our flagship projects are Black Pine in Idaho and Goldstrike in Utah, both past- producing open-pit mines, where previous operators only scratched the surface.
