Osisko Mining Delivers Updated
Windfall Mineral Resource Estimate

Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX: OSK, "Osisko" or the "Corporation") provided the updated mineral resource estimate ("MRE") for its 100% owned world-class Windfall gold deposit, located in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec.

This MRE reflects the results of approximately 1.7 million metres of drilling, with 1.5 million metres completed by Osisko since October 2015, and includes all drilling completed as of September 2021 and all analytical results received as of October 20, 2021.

An additional 70,000 metres of infill and expansion drilling has been completed since September 2021. This additional drilling and outstanding analytical results, together with ongoing surface and underground drilling, will be integrated into the database for the pending feasibility study expected to be completed in Q4 2022.

Highlights

• 3.2 M oz measured & indicated ("M&I") resource avg. 10.5 g/t Au

• M&I resource increase of 73% with avg. grade increased by 14%

• Lynx contains 60% of MRE total gold

• Lynx resource: M&I 2.3 M oz avg. 12g/t Au; Inferred 1.8 M oz avg. 10.9 g/t Au 3.6 M oz inferred resource avg. 8.6 g/t Au, reflecting a grade increase of 8%

• 50% of the MRE is hosted in 30 wireframes

• 98% of MRE is located from surface to 1200 m vertical depth

• Exploration ramp access currently at >600 m vertical depth in Lynx Lynx 600 bulk sample (Triple Lynx at level 600) work in progress; prior Lynx 311 bulk sample returned 189% positive grade reconciliation (see Osisko news release dated December 11, 2019)

• Strong open potential for expansion of high-grade zones in Lynx to the East and down plunge

Chief Executive Officer of Osisko John Burzynski commented: "The world-class Windfall deposit continues to impress with grade and scale. Infill drilling has again exceeded our expectations, with excellent conversion, and the M&I resource increasing by 73% with average gold grade moving past double digits to 10.5 g/t. This MRE forms a strong foundation for the upcoming feasibility study. We are confident that as we complete the remaining infill work in the coming months, the resource will continue to grow and we should again see incremental increase in what is already a strong average grade."

Mr. Burzynski continued: "Windfall is an outstanding, well-defined deposit which still has demonstrable strong upside potential to grow. The consistent trend over the past five years of drilling, as we completed our extensive and detailed surface and underground work programs, has been steady growth of ounces and increasing high-grade. We are confident that Windfall will grow significantly in the future with continued work. We would like very much to thank our employees and contractors for their tremendous efforts to advance our project, our Cree First Nation hosts and partners, the local and provincial governments, and our stakeholders and shareholders for their strong support."

The MRE sensitivity table (Table 1) shows the potential for additional resources through optimizing costs and cut-off grade which will be reviewed during feasibility work. Table 2 shows resources by main area of the Windfall deposit.

About the Windfall Gold Deposit

The Windfall gold deposit is located between Val-d'Or and Chibougamau in the Abitibi greenstone belt, Urban Township, Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Québec, Canada. The mineral resource defined by Osisko, as disclosed in this news release and assuming a cut-off grade of 3.5 g/t Au, comprises 565,000 tonnes at 11.6 g/t Au (210,000 ounces) in the measured mineral resource category, 8,907,000 tonnes at 10.5 g/t Au (2,994,000 ounces) in the indicated mineral resource category and 13,035,000 tonnes at 8.6 g/t Au (3,585,000 ounces) in the inferred mineral resource category. The key assumptions, parameters and methods used to estimate the mineral resource estimate disclosed in this news release, certain of which are described in this news release, will be further described in the full technical report being prepared for this updated mineral resource estimate in accordance with NI 43-101, and will be available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) under the Corporation's issuer profile within 45 days. The Windfall gold deposit is currently one of the highest-grade resource-stage gold projects in Canada and has world-class scale. Mineralization occurs in three principal zones: Lynx, Main, and Underdog. Mineralization is generally comprised of sub-vertical lenses following intrusive porphyry contacts plunging to the northeast. The resources are defined from surface to a depth of 1,600 metres, including the Triple 8 (TP8) zone. The resources excluding TP8 are defined from surface to a depth of 1,200 metres. The deposit remains open along strike and at depth. Mineralization has been identified near surface in some areas and as deep as 2,625 metres in others with significant potential to extend mineralization down-plunge and at depth.
