Bravada Gold Corporation (TSXV: BVA) (FSE: BRTN) (OTCQB: BGAVF) (the "Company" or "Bravada") announces that it has closed the previously announced non-brokered private placement for total gross proceeds of $1,719,500 through the issuance of 34,390,000 units of the Company at a price of $0.05 per unit. The original $1,500,000 offering, previously announced on March 21, 2022, has been oversubscribed. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase a common share at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of two years following the closing of the offering.

Net proceeds from the private placement will be used to continue exploration drilling at the Wind Mountain property and to incorporate higher-grade gold and silver assay results from 2021 in-fill drilling, as well as results from earlier post-2012 drilling, into an update of the resource calculation and PEA. Net proceeds will also cover property maintenance for the Company's portfolio of Nevada properties and for working capital.

All securities issued and sold under the offering will be subject to a hold period until August 29, 2022, which is four months and one day from their date of issuance. In connection with the offering, the Company paid aggregate cash finders' fees of $6,650 and issued an aggregate of 133,000 non-transferable finders' warrants, each exercisable to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of two years. The Company also reports that it has granted incentive stock options under its 10% rolling stock option plan to certain directors, officers and consultants of the Company to purchase a total of 5,000,000 common shares at $0.05 per share exercisable for a period of five years.

About the Wind Mountain Au-Ag project

The Wind Mountain gold-silver property was mined by a former owner, operating an open-pit/heap-leach operation that produced 299,259oz gold & 1.8MMoz silver. Bravada subsequently acquired 100% ownership subject to a small royalty, and after a series of exploration and pre-development initiatives, commissioned in 2012 an independent resource estimate and a Preliminary Economic Evaluation* for Wind Mountain, which reported positive economics and a resource of:

  • 570,000 ounces of gold and 14.7 million ounces of silver in the Indicated category, and

  • 354,000 ounces of gold and 10.1 million ounces of silver in the Inferred category.

See the table* below and news release NR-06-12 (April 11, 2012) for details of the resource.

Bravada, in 2021, successfully added higher-grade mineralization by in-filling certain portions of the 2012 study area. In addition, exploration drilling at the feeder target in Q4 2020 discovered the top of a banded vein zone beneath mine waste and other overburden, and in 2021 drilling expanded this zone beneath cover for 330 metres of strike and is open-ended in both directions. The Company recently completed permitting five new drill sites to test deeper portions of the vein system where much higher grades are expected based on analogies with similar vein systems in Nevada and elsewhere.

The proposed exploration program is designed to add tonnage and higher grades to the mineral inventory as the next step towards mining of the resource.

*Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Inferred resources are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be classified as mineral reserves. There is no assurance that any part of the resources will ultimately be converted to mineral reserves.

Mine Development Associates compiled the Technical Report and PEA. Thomas Dyer, P.E. is a Senior Engineer for MDA and is responsible for sections of the Technical Report involving mine designs and the economic evaluation, and Steven Ristorcelli, C.P.G., is a Principal Geologist for MDA and is responsible for the sections involving the Mineral Resource estimate. These are the Qualified Persons of the technical report for the purpose of Canadian NI 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Economic Analyses of Mineral Projects. Details of the PEA produced by Mine Development Associates (MDA) of Reno can be found on SEDAR, as previously reported (see NR-07-12 dated May 1, 2012). Note that although the PEA was encouraging, it is preliminary in nature, it includes Inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves, and there is no certainty that the PEA will be realized.

Bravada Receives Amended BLM Permit Approval for Wind Mountain Au/Ag Project, Nevada

Bravada Receives Amended BLM Permit Approval for Wind Mountain Au/Ag Project, Nevada

Bravada Gold Corporation (TSXV: BVA) (FSE: BRTN) (OTCQB: BGAVF) (the "Company" or "Bravada") has received approval for an amendment to its drilling permit, which was submitted in late September 2021. The extensive delay is believed to be related to COVID-19 staffing issues. After posting a small increase in bond, five new drill sites will allow deeper tests of the vein system that was discovered in Q4 2020 by drilling beneath mine waste and other overburden at the Feeder Target, in which hole WM20-102 intersected 1.5 metres of 269.0gt Ag and 0.404gt Au within a thicker interval of banded quartz veining together with anomalous gold and silver. Four reverse-circulation holes drilled in 2021 to further test this target extended the strike length of banded quartz veining to +300m beneath overburden but failed to test the vein system deeper than the WM20-102 high-grade silver intercept due to unexpected shallowing of 2021 drill holes. The new sites (see Figure 1) will allow a better drill orientation designed to intersect the vein zone at a deeper elevation (see Figure 2).

President Joe Kizis, commented, "The banding seen in drill chips indicates that several stages of sealing and breakage occurred within the vein zone, which is important for developing high grades in low-sulfidation deposits. Silver is often enriched in the upper portions of these systems because gold typically is deposited preferentially deeper. Enriched silver to gold ratios returned from our recent drilling, along with observations of relatively low-temperature quartz vein mineralogy, indicate that our current drilling only tested shallow portions of the vein zone; therefore, we expect that major gold enrichment should lie at a deeper elevation. The upper portion of the hole planned from Site G will also test a possible shallow extension of disseminated resource.

Bravada Reports Assays from 2021 Drilling at the Highland Gold/Silver Property, Nevada; Re-Acquires 100% Interest

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Assays for seven reverse-circulation holes received, four holes in the Western Vein zone and three holes in the Big Hammer/Sinter region.
  • Numerous +0.3g/t gold intervals intersected with low values of base metals and low-temperature vein textures, suggesting only shallow levels of the hydrothermal system were tested.
  • A down-faulted northerly extension of the main Western Vein zone was intersected beneath overburden, returning multiple 0.3g/t gold values associated with low-temperature vein mineralogy and textures indicating exploration potential at deeper levels over a strike length of approximately 400 metres.
  • Holes from the Big Hammer/Sinter region indicate significant lateral flow of mineralizing fluids to form widespread sinter, shallow-level alteration and vein textures, and locally significant gold mineralization; major upwelling zones, where potentially high-grade gold may have developed, have not been encountered to date in this region of the property.
  • Geologic mapping at the Geyser and Cabin targets have refined those targets; both targets occur at the intersection of northwest-trending fault zones and an older caldera rim fault. Surface samples of veins contain values up to multi-gram/ton gold.
  • Drilling, mapping, and gravity geophysics were conducted as part of a 2021 earn-in agreement; however, the property has been returned to Bravada, which continues to hold a 100% interest in Highland.

Bravada Gold Corporation (TSXV: BVA) (FSE: BRTN) (the "Company" or "Bravada") reports 2021 Highland drill results conducted by an earn-in partner that has elected to return the property to Bravada without earning an interest. Seven holes (a total of 2,098.4 metres) were drilled in two areas. A preliminary evaluation of the program is summarized below, with further analysis planned.
