OTC Disclosure News Service

Contango ORE, Inc. (“CORE” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: CTGO) announced
today that it filed its Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2015 with
the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Company reported a net loss of $3.6 million or $0.94 per basic and
diluted share for the year ended June 30, 2015 compared to a loss of
$9.2 million or $2.43 per basic and diluted share for the same period
last year. The Company also reported that it determined to account for
its ownership of its joint venture company, Peak Gold, LLC, on the
equity method and made the determination to restate its results for the
three and nine month periods ended March 31, 2015 contained in the
Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q by filing an amendment to the
original filing.

While the Company substantially reduced its net loss in 2015 as compared
to 2014 because the Company did not carry out an exploration program in
2014, the Company incurred greater legal and professional expenses in
2015 related to the formation and stockholder approval in early January
2015 of a joint venture, Peak Gold, LLC, with Royal Alaska, LLC, (“Royal
Alaska”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Royal Gold, Inc., for the
exploration and development of its Peak zone gold ore discovery as well
as other newly discovered gold bearing areas on its Tetlin properties
near Tok, Alaska.

In August 2015, the Management Committee of Peak Gold, LLC, approved a
budget of approximately $4 million for Phase II exploration work, which
will be funded by Royal Alaska following Royal Alaska’s initial
contribution of $5 million. Royal Alaska may earn up to 8% economic
ownership of the joint venture by contributing $9 million and a 40%
economic ownership by contributing $30 million to the joint venture
company. Brad Juneau, President and CEO of the Company, commented,
“Phase II of our Joint Venture’s 2015 exploration program is well
underway, and we expect to receive final assay data from Phase II core
holes drilled by year end. The Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended
June 30, 2015 contains the significant intercepts from Phase I as well
as base maps showing their locations.”

CORE; potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration
or development projects or capital expenditures; the interpretation of
