GOLD STANDARD FILES PRELIMINARY SHORT FORM BASE SHELF PROSPECTUS AND F-3 REGISTRATION STATEMENT

June 17, 2014



ENP Newswire - 17 June 2014

Release date- 13062014 - Vancouver, B.C. - Gold Standard Ventures Corp. (TSXV: GSV; NYSE MKT: GSV) announces that it has filed a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, Canada and a Form F-3 registration statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

Under the Shelf Prospectus, Gold Standard may offer and issue from time to time any combination of common shares, warrants to purchase common shares, share purchase contracts, subscription receipts and units (collectively the 'Securities') up to an aggregate initial offering price of US$50 million during the 25 month period that the Prospectus, including any amendments thereto, remains effective.

Securities may be offered separately or together, in amounts, at prices and on terms to be determined based on market conditions at the time of sale and set forth in an accompanying prospectus supplement (a 'Prospectus Supplement').

Jonathan Awde, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gold Standard, states 'The purpose of filing the Shelf Prospectus and Registration Statement at this time is to provide the Company with greater flexibility to carry out one or more public offerings of securities over the next 25 months having regard to our capital requirements and market conditions from time to time.

We are not seeking to raise US$50 million at this time but are undertaking the necessary regulatory filings to give us the flexibility to fast track future offerings to the public in certain provinces of Canada and the United States, including potential large US institutions that generally shy away from Canadian 4 month hold period private placements, as market conditions permit.'

The net proceeds to Gold Standard from the sale of Securities and the proposed use of those proceeds will be set forth in the applicable Prospectus Supplement. The principal business objective to be achieved with the proceeds is to further the exploration and, if warranted, development, of Gold Standard's 100% owned/controlled Railroad-Pinion project situated at the southeast end of the Carlin Trend of north-central Nevada. Proceeds will also be used for, inter alia, general administrative and corporate purposes.

A registration statement relating to these Securities has been filed with the SEC, but has not yet become effective. These Securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the Registration Statement becomes effective.
