February 22, 2018
Vancouver, British Columbia - February 22, 2018 - GoldMining Inc. (the "Company" or "GoldMining") (TSX-V: GOLD; OTCQX: GLDLF) is pleased to announce BRI Mineração Ltda. ("BRI"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, has entered into a royalty purchase agreement (the "Agreement") with certain royalty holders (the "Vendors") on the Cachoeira Project. In addition, further to its press release dated January 16, 2018, the Company has filed a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") technical report (the "Technical Report") for its Crucero Project located in the Department of Puno, southeastern Peru.
Paulo Pereira, President of GoldMining, commented: "We are pleased to have reached an agreement with several of the royalty holders on the Cachoeira Project, which extinguishes a portion of the current advance royalty payment, as well as making it more attractive in the future when the deposit is developed or sold. In 2018, we will continue to look at innovative ways to advance our portfolio of resource-stage gold projects in the Americas to maximize value for our shareholders".
Royalty Purchase Agreement
Pursuant to the Agreement, BRI will acquire the Vendors' 66.66% interest in the existing 4.0% net production royalty (the "Royalty") on the Company's Cachoeira Project, in consideration (the "Consideration") for US$133,320 payable in cash to the Vendors, and 698,161 common shares of the Company.
The common shares of the Company to be issued under the transaction are subject to a four month and one day hold period and certain resale restrictions pursuant to the terms of the Agreement.

Mosher, M.Sc., P.Geo. of Global Mineral Resource Services, who is a qualified person within the meaning of NI 43-101 and is independent of the Company.
The Technical Report includes the following resource estimate for the Crucero Project at a 0.4 g/t gold cut-off (Tables 1 to 3).

The Crucero Project occurs within the Puno Orogenic Belt, which is host to orogenic gold deposits and associated extensive alluvial deposits in eastern Peru and Bolivia. The Project is road accessible by paved road from Juliaca to the town of Crucero, approximately 150 km to the northeast, with the remaining 50 km to the site by gravel road. High-power electrical lines pass within 8 km of the property.
The A1 deposit, as currently defined by trenching and drilling, strikes northwest and dips vertically to steeply to the northeast. The deposit is approximately 750 m long by 100 m in width and has been traced to a vertical depth of 400 m, but most of the drilling is confined to within 250 m of surface. The deposit is open at depth and along strike to the northwest and southeast. The structurally controlled gold mineralization is associated with sulphide veins hosted within strongly deformed metasedimentary rocks.
Historic exploration programs have focused on the A1 deposit, however geophysical and geochemical surveys have identified additional targets for follow-up exploration.
The resource estimate disclosed herein on the Crucero Project was prepared for GoldMining by Mr. Greg Z. Mosher, B.Sc., M.Sc., P.Geo., of Global Mineral Resource Services (the "Qualified Person"). Mr. Mosher is recognized as a qualified person as defined in NI 43-101, is independent of the Company and has reviewed and approved the disclosure regarding the resource estimate for the Crucero Project disclosed herein.
Paulo Pereira, President of GoldMining Inc. has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this news release. Mr. Pereira holds a Bachelors degree in Geology from Universidade do Amazonas in Brazil, is a Qualified Person as defined in National Instrument 43-101 and is a member of the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario.
Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in the "measured", "indicated" and "inferred" categories will ever be converted into mineral reserves with demonstrated economic viability or that inferred mineral resources will be converted to the measured and/or indicated categories through further drilling. In addition, the estimation of inferred resources involves far greater uncertainty as to their existence and economic viability than the estimation of other categories of resources. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of pre-feasibility or feasibility studies.
