Montreal, Quebec, Canada, October 9, 2018 – MONARQUES GOLD CORPORATION (“Monarques” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV: MQR) (OTCMKTS: MRQRF) (FRANKFURT: MR7) is pleased to announce that it has received the conditional approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) to list the Corporation's common shares on the TSX. Listing of the common shares is subject to compliance with all of the TSX requirements by December 30, 2018.

Upon listed on the TSX, the Corporation's common shares will continue to trade under the symbol "MQR".

"We are proud to be graduating to the TSX, as it indicates how much Monarques has evolved in the last year," said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer at Monarques. "We believe that this move over to the TSX will attract a larger number of investors and funds, including those who may have been restricted from buying our shares. It should also improve our access to capital markets, which could prove to be timely for our Wasamac gold project."
