Cardinal Resources Limited (ASX/TSX: CDV) (“Cardinal” or “the Company”) is pleased to report assay results from its drilling programme on the Namdini Gold Project in Ghana. Detailed results of the drill programme are included below and in the attached schedules. Further results of the continuing drill programme will be released as assay results are obtained, with an updated Mineral Resource estimate expected Q3 2017.

Cardinal’s Chief Executive Officer / Managing Director, Archie Koimtsidis said: “We are once again very pleased with the return of additional results of our drilling programme that confirms continuity of the mineralisation. These results are very encouraging and are expected to improve the robustness of the Mineral Resource. More results are expected, which should upgrade the current Mineral Resource in both size and category.

Cardinal’s drill programme is ongoing with eleven drill rigs on site.” INFILL DRILLING PROGRAMME RESULTS Section F Highlights: NMDD092  147m at 3.1 g/t Au (LWAG1 ) o Includes:  53m at 2.6 g/t Au  20m at 4.2 g/t Au  13m at 3.8 g/t Au NMRC154  87m at 1.1 g/t Au (LWAG1 ) o Includes:  14m at 1.1 g/t Au  12m at 1.0 g/t Au  15m at 1.0 g/t Au Section G Highlights: NMDD079  173m at 1.3 g/t Au (LWAG1 ) o Includes:  26m at 1.2 g/t Au  10m at 1.4 g/t Au  41m at 2.2 g/t Au NMDD091  162m at 1.5 g/t Au (LWAG1 ) o Includes:  48m at 1.9 g/t Au  47m at 1.7 g/t Au  14m at 1.0 g/t Au 1 Length Weighted Average Grade (LWAG): Calculations are based on 3m minimum width, 3m maximum contiguous waste and 0.5 g/t Au cut-off. Page 2 of 18 ABN 56 147 325 620 DISCUSSIONS OF RESULTS Drilling results continue to be returned during the comprehensive campaign to infill and extend the defined Namdini Mineral Resource. Early results indicate the strong continuity of mineralised zones. Further results are pending and will form the basis for a Mineral Resource upgrade expected towards the end of Q3 2017.

Cardinal Resources Limited (ASX/TSX: CDV) is an African gold-focused exploration and development Company which holds interests in tenements within Ghana, West Africa. The Company’s Namdini Project has a declared gold Mineral Resource of 23.86Mt @ 1.21 g/t for 931,000 oz Indicated and 100.15Mt @ 1.13 g/t for 3.63 Moz Inferred (Refer to Cardinal “Technical Report on Namdini” dated 5 April 2017). The Company is focused on the development of the Namdini Project through a resource expansion drilling programme, prefeasibility studies, detailed metallurgical test work and process flowsheet studies. Exploration activity is also underway at the Company’s Bolgatanga (Northern Ghana) and Subranum (Southern Ghana) Projects.

For diamond drilling (which is completed using HQ core collection), the key aspects are that the holes are electronically surveyed every 30 metres down hole, all core runs are routinely oriented using a Reflex digital orientation instrument, core recovery is measured and geotechnical logging is completed as the core is recovered at the rig site. Back at the Bolgatanga office the core is photographed wet and dry and after logging onto digital data recorders, the core is cut such that a half HQ core is retained for reference. The same sector of core, relative to the core orientation mark is routinely sampled for assaying. For RC drilling, samples are collected on a one metre interval using a multi‐‐‐tier riffle splitter, duplicate field samples are routinely collected (one in 20), the cyclone is thoroughly cleaned on each rod change and the splitter is cleaned after each metre sample. The sample bag weights for each metre interval are routinely weighed, as are the split samples for submission to the assay laboratory and approximately 2.5 to 3 kilogram chip samples are dispatched to the laboratory. Amongst the samples, a suite of internationally accredited and certified reference material along with blanks are included in the sample submission sequence. The standards cover the gold grade range expected at Namdini. The individual sample bags for both core and drill chips are sealed at the Bolgatanga site office and are grouped into tens for placement in a large plastic bag, which is, in turn, sealed. The assay laboratory provides sample transport from Bolgatanga such that the chain of custody passes from Cardinal to the assay laboratory at the Bolgatanga sample logging facility. Page 6 of 18 ABN 56 147 325 620 Once sample bags and pulps are returned from the assay laboratory to Cardinal’s Bolgatanga facility, a representative suite of pulps, covering the entire range of both sample batches and gold grades are chosen for ‘referee’ analysis at an accredited independent laboratory. As with the routine sample submission, a suite of international certified standards and blanks are inserted into the referee assaying pulp sequence. Cardinal technical staff carry out routine analysis of the quality control data on receipt of assay results from the laboratory in order to determine if the batch of samples has passed industry standard levels for control samples. If the batch ‘fails’, the batch of assays is rejected and a re‐assay request for the batch of samples is made to the laboratory.
