NV Gold Identifies Near-Surface Oxide Gold at Slumber High-Grade Targets Remain Untested at Depth

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 7, 2021 / NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF) (Frankfurt:8NV) (“NV Gold” or the “Company“) has completed detailed mapping and Leapfrog modeling at its 100% controlled Slumber Gold Project (“Slumber”) located approximately 50 miles northwest of Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA. Permitting a 3rd drilling campaign and negotiations to secure adequate drilling equipment are underway. Drilling is expected to commence in October 2021.

Key Highlights from previous Drilling Program at Slumber Gold Project

  • Two drilling campaigns were completed in 2019/20 comprising 16 reverse circulation (“RC”) drill holes, totaling 2,474 m (8,119 ft.).
  • Drilling has outlined a new 600-meter-wide, near-surface mineralized oxide gold zone with notable drill intercepts, including a very encouraging 18.3 m @ 0.52 g/t Au beginning at 48.7 m in Hole SL-11, hosted in an oxidized and silicified rhyolite correlating with a resistive blanket as seen in controlled sourced audio frequency magnetotellurics (CSAMT) data (see Figure 3 & 4). Another hole, SL-14, intersected 134.2m @ 0.14 g/t Au starting from the collar and was terminated in gold mineralization.
  • This newly discovered zone is separate from that discovered during the 2019 drill program and will be prioritized for follow up in a Phase 3 drilling campaign in Q4 2021.
  • The source of the mineralized CSAMT resistive blanket is believed to come from higher grade feeder structures at depth (see Figures 1, 2 & 6).

Mapping and Leapfrog Modeling Conclusions

Mapping has identified extensive alteration favorable for gold mineralization in Upper Volcanic Package (UVP) rocks (Trf & Trt in Figure 1) further north of the gold zone defined by previous drilling. These findings are encouraging, suggesting the system is continuous and may be covered by unaltered flow-banded rhyolite domes (Tr in Figure 1) and Quaternary (Qoa) material.

Rhyolite breccias (tuff breccias and phreatomagmatic breccias of Trf) that were not identified in previous drilling were discovered during detailed mapping of the northern portion of the property. This mapping and specific rock textures and breccia descriptions were used as vectors to the feeder for the system. The feeder target is interpreted, based on the location of a large resistor and open gold mineralization, to be located in the northwest portion of the southern NVX claim block (see Figure 1, 4, 5 & 6).

Structural and geophysical observations indicate the UVP is bounded by graben structures and dips to the north, consistent with the extent of the CSAMT resistor blanket being open to the north (see Figure 4). This resistor anomaly is interpreted as a continuation of the gold system identified in the UVP from previous drilling and will be the main target for the next phase of drilling expected to commence in October (see Figure 1 & 4).

A recently completed three dimensional model completed in Leapfrog software was used to determine the gold volume encountered in the 2019/20 drilling campaigns. Comparing the gold distribution with the reinterpreted geological information it appears that previous drilling might have only peripherally intercepted the southwestern edges of two much larger, potentially mineralized CSMT resistor zones. Combining the known geology with the new mapping and Leapfrog modeling the silicified and mineralized system appears to have a strike-length of at least 1 kilometer and a width of 600 meters and correlates well with two open and north-plunging resistor zones (see Figure 4 & 5). The next drilling campaign will focus on this near-surface oxide and has potential to push Slumber towards a discovery stage.

“I am pleased and extremely excited about the outcome of the recent Slumber mapping and Leapfrog modeling. Slumber is advancing through comprehensive data collection and modeling. Encountering an open, near-surface oxide gold zone is very encouraging. The goal of the Q4 drilling will be to find the source and higher-grade pathways of this gold mineralization. These holes will focus on the north-plunging and open resistor zones. The geochemistry data as imaged in Leapfrog modeling is very impressive and strongly supportive of our goal of delineating an oxide gold resource during 2022 and to advance Slumber to a discovery stage.”commented Thomas Klein, VP Exploration of NV Gold.

NV Gold Commenced IP Survey at its Sandy Gold Project in Nevada

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 26, 2021 / NV Gold Corporation ( TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF) (“ NV Gold ” or the “ Company “) is pleased to announce that the Company has initiated its planned IP Survey at its 100%-owned Sandy Gold Project (“ Sandy “), located within the Walker Lane, Lyon County, Nevada, USA. Combined with the Leapfrog modelling and detailed mapping earlier in the 3 rd Quarter, the outcome of the IP Survey will be used for better target definition to guide a 2 nd Phase drilling program projected for the 1 st Quarter of 2022 or earlier depending on equipment availability.

Recap of previously announced 2021 Sandy Project Highlights

  • The Company completed its expanded program of 17 RC (Reverse Circulation) drill holes totaling 3,811 m (12,505 ft) in 1 st Quarter of 2021.
  • The “maiden” RC drilling has encountered a large epithermal gold system. The alteration footprint at the surface has a strike length of 2.4 kilometers and a width of half a kilometer. Most of the property remains undrilled, and the system remains open at depth and under late volcanic cover.
  • A surface rock chip sampling program completed yielded positive gold values from anomalous to high grade. Of note, five samples yielded 11.3 g/t Au and 11.6 g/t Ag, 11.5 g/t Au and 14.1 g/t Ag, and 18.1 g/t Au and 43.2 g/t Ag (refer to Figure 1).
  • All seventeen of the 2021 RC holes intercepted anomalous gold and strong trace element geochemistry. Twelve holes were above a threshold of >3 meters @ >0.1 g/t Au. The strongest intercept was 22.9 meters @ 0.65 g/t Au from 29 meters to 51.9 meters (including 6.1 meters of 1.58 g/t Au at 38.1 meters) in SD-2 (refer to Figure 1).

Mapping Conclusions

Hydrothermal alteration at Sandy is predominantly clay to silica-clay alteration (of the tuffaceous rocks) in the Southwest Zone, mostly seen as float around epithermal quartz vein pieces, while stronger (massive and “near-massive”) silicification forms ridgelines and broader structural zones in the upper Northeast Zone (refer to Figures 1 & 3). Very white clay, possibly illite, is interpreted in the strongest silica-clay altered zones, both in the Southwest and Northeast Zones. The alteration is consistent with low sulfidation vein alteration and looks to be clay alteration developed on the margins or above epithermal veins. Based on the size, elevation range, zonation (silica above, clay below) and apparent geometry of the alteration, the Northeast Zone could be an altered cap overlying a preserved epithermal vein system.

The upcoming IP (refer to Figure 2) survey should be especially useful to interpret the 3D geometry of the alteration at the Northeast zone. Even if high resistivity is relatively shallow (shallow silicification) and any subsurface veins are too narrow to detect, the widespread clay alteration should produce moderate resistivity/conductivity anomalies in 3D and any roots or zones of greater resistivity or conductivity (near vein halo alteration) may be considered as vein drill targets. Deeper zones of greater chargeability may indicate broader sulfide rich zones around deeper veins and would also be potential drill targets. Once the IP surveying is completed, deeper drill targeting should be straightforward.

“The strike-length and amount of alteration and the presence of high-grade Au of up to 18.1 g/t Au from rock chips remain encouraging for an economic gold system at Sandy. I was pleased to have Mr. Myers and Ms. Teal (previously known as Pinto) involved in the program, which will provide an immediate upgrade in data quality. I have worked with Stan and Rita for many years together at Yanacocha, Peru, where we were engaged in numerous discoveries, including the Kupfertal Porphyry. Several Au and trace element geochem anomalies remain untested at Sandy, and the Leapfrog modelling suggests there may be open gold mineralization in the Southwest Zone. In addition, mapping has identified a highly silicified and altered cap, possibly overlying a preserved epithermal vein system at the Northeast Zone that is very encouraging. I am excited and looking forward to see the IP results soon to be included and guiding our 2 nd Phase drilling campaign in 1 st Q of 2022″,stated Thomas Klein, VP Exploration, NV Gold.

NV Gold Corp – Progress Update Q3 and Q4, 2021

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 23, 2021 / NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(FSE:8NV) (“NV Gold” or the “Company”) The Company announced today an update on its active projects in Nevada, USA.

Slumber Gold Project, Humboldt County, Nevada

Our Q4, 2020 drill program at Slumber expanded the margins of known mineralization from previous work. Additional geophysics (CSAMT) followed by detailed mapping and sampling have advanced and enlarged our target interpretation which will focus the placement of the next round of drilling, anticipated in Q4, 2021. Details of the recent work will be outlined in a separate press release.

Sandy Gold Project, Lyon County, Nevada

Our maiden drilling at the Sandy Project in Q1, 2021 returned successful results, even though no high-grade intercepts were encountered. A large volume of gold mineralization was outlined, covering a strike length of 2 kilometers and a width of up to 500 meters. Water and equipment limitations kept the drilling depths to 300 meters.

Narrow gold-quartz-pyrite veining was encountered in most of the 17 holes drilled, suggesting a deeper target or targets may be present. A follow-up IP-Resistivity geophysical program is set to initiate within the next 2 weeks. Additional details of the planned geophysical work will be outlined in a separate press release. Depending upon availability of drilling equipment, the next drill program at Sandy is likely to be scheduled in Q1, 2022.

Discovery Bay Gold Project, Lander County, Nevada

The Discovery Bay Project is located less than 10 miles southeast of the (previously producing) Cove McCoy Mine in Lander County. The target area is a kilometer long, elongate window of Triassic Osobb Mountain Quartzite and Cane Springs Limestone (host rocks at McCoy), and other underlying favorable host lithologies. Most of the target(s) is covered by thin layers of Tertiary volcanics (Basal Tuffs) and Quaternary rocks.

NVX has expanded its claim position in preparation for a 4-6-hole initial RC program, expected to commence in early Q4 2021.

Pickhandle Project, Lander County, Nevada

NV Gold plans a Phase 1 exploration program during Q4 2021 leading to a potential RC drilling program, in Q1 2022, to be focused on exploring a small window of Permian Antler Sequences, hosting anomalous jasperoids and mineralized dikes. Like the “Lone Tree Gold Mine Model” the target is mostly covered and extends underneath Tertiary volcanic cover and into the pediment. There is no historical drilling at Pickhandle, and it represents a “virgin” opportunity for a Nevada discovery!

Spanish Canyon Project, Nye County, Nevada

NV Gold plans a Phase 1 reconnaissance program during Q4 2021. The project is a “Carlin-type” disseminated gold-silver system hosted in the calcareous sediments of the Triassic Luning and Sunrise Formations. The area is characterized by multiple stages of faulting, replacement silicification, hydrothermal and tectonic breccia bodies and argillic-decalcification alteration of carbonates over a 4 square-kilometer area.

Although there has been no historical drilling at Spanish Canyon, the project is an exciting prospect owing to its numerous mineralized jasperoid zones in an area up to a kilometer long and contains previous outcrop sampling that assayed up to 2.5 g/t Au and over 1,000 ppm As.

Spanish Canyon represents an untested gold system, with bulk mineable potential, which is situated in favorable geologic and geographic environments. Drill targets have been identified and include a large basin pediment area, range front structural zone, with mineralization exposed in the outcrops along the low lying hills of the range. A maiden drilling program could be initiated in Q1 or Q2, 2022.

The Near-Term Strategy and Outlook

The Company continues its focus on Nevada and the Great Basin, one of the largest and most productive gold provinces in the world. On a regional-scale, Nevada is thought by many to be a thoroughly explored gold province. Much of the near surface gold that has been found over the past 40 years has already been mined or is being mined today. To find significant new deposits, the successful explorer needs to employ modern, sensitive sampling techniques combined with regional-scale structural interpretation and a willingness to drill, drill, drill. The breadth of experience of our staff and advisors gives us our advantage. Over 50% of Nevada is covered by recent basin sediments or volcanic cover, which often obscures the classic, visible expressions of mineralization. These covered areas are composed of the same rocks with the same temporal placement as the gold deposits found in the nearby ranges. There is a strong likelihood that other, similar-sized deposits await discovery! Significant discovery potential remains in one of the preeminent gold provinces on Earth. The Company has a strong property position with over 20 projects, ranging from Greenfields to advanced “pre-discovery”. Our property portfolio covers a number of geologic environments and at varying levels of advancement. Holding costs for most of these properties are minimal, particularly those that are held as joint venture or lease-out possibilities.

It is our plan to drill 4-6 projects in the 12-18-month time horizon, providing a good news flow and multiple opportunities for success. We look forward to a productive and successful exploration season ahead.

About NV Gold Corporation

NV Gold (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(FSE:8NV) is a well-financed exploration company with ~80 million shares issued, a solid treasury and no debt. The Company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Reno, Nevada and is focused on delivering value through mineral discoveries in Nevada, USA. Leveraging its expansive property portfolio, its highly experienced in-house technical team, and its extensive geological data library, 2021 will be NV Gold’s busiest exploration year in its corporate history.

NV Gold Completes Further Expanded Drill Program at its Sandy Gold Project in Nevada


Press Release


Corporate Presentation

1364aad4-ef62-4765-adb0-dfa8a5144bf2.png

“Since announcing the expansion of our RC drill program at Sandy, further holes continued to yield intervals displaying intensely hydrothermally altered rock, quartz vein material and considerable pyrite. Because of these positive indications, NV Gold elected to expand its drill program by 150%,” commented Peter A. Ball, CEO of NV Gold. Drilling provides an indication the newly discovered epithermal system has at least a 2.4-kilometer strike-length. Recent high-grade gold from surface rock chip sampling supports this observation. The Company is now planning to complete a property-wide induced polarization-resistivity (“IP”) survey to further evaluate this exciting system. The IP-resistivity survey will help to identify and distinguish zones of high chargeability, or sulphides, and resistivity to delineate silicification. It will also provide information regarding the depth to underlying shaly basement.”
