- August 7th, 2019

NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX, OTC:NVGLF) (“NV Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce strong gold (up to 8.02 g/t) and silver (up to 1,495 g/t) assay results from its sampling program at its 100% controlled Root Spring Gold-Silver Project in the East Range, Pershing County, Nevada. See complete assay table below.

NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX, OTC:NVGLF) (“NV Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce strong gold (up to 8.02 g/t) and silver (up to 1,495 g/t) assay results from its sampling program at its 100% controlled Root Spring Gold-Silver Project in the East Range, Pershing County, Nevada. See complete assay table below.

Highlights of Recent Surface Sampling Program:

  • 39 rock-chip samples were collected and submitted for assaying.
  • 28% returning silver assays greater than 150 g/t, and up to 1,495 g/t silver.
  • 41% of samples returned greater than 0.5 g/t gold, 23% of samples returned greater than 1 g/t gold, and up to 8.02 g/t gold.
  • Positive base metal results up to 0.51% copper, 0.68% lead, and 0.89% zinc.
  • The Company is now reviewing the potential for a fall drill program.

“Assays results at Root Spring are very positive and we will immediately expand our exploration plans for the project, including reviewing the potential opportunity for a drill program later in the year,” commented Peter A. Ball, President. “With a strong gold market that continues to set new highs each month, NV Gold is positioned well with multiple drill programs about to commence, ongoing discussions with new joint venture partners on our project portfolio, and new opportunities that are being discovered from our extensive geological databases. We expect news flow to continue deep into the fall.”

About Root Spring Gold Project

Root Spring comprises 54 lode claims on BLM ground, and is located 80 km south of the city of Winnemucca, and 26 km east of the world-class open-pit Rochester silver-gold mine operated by Coeur Mining. The project contains an Au-Ag vein system partly exposed at the edge of a large alluvial-covered valley. Mineralization is hosted by metavolcanic rocks that may be equivalent to parts of the Koipato Group, which were not previously identified in the area, and consist of felsic and mafic units. The Koipato volcanics host the Rochester silver-gold deposit as well as the Spring Valley gold deposit, 27 km northwest of Root Spring. Additional information on Root Spring is available in the July 23rd, 2019 press release.

“The Root Spring Project is part of an historic mining region in Nevada that is seeing a recent resurgence in exploration activity. Hundreds of small-scale mines operated in the area prior to being shut-down by the federal government in 1942, to divert all mining to basic materials necessary for the World War II effort. Very few of these mines were operated again, and even fewer have seen proper modern exploration,” says Dr. Marcus Johnston, Vice President Exploration. “The current mines and resources in the vicinity of Root Spring include Rochester/Packard (3.4 Moz Au, 317.5 Moz Ag), Spring Valley (5.4 Moz Au), and Lincoln Hill (359,000 oz Au, 9.5 Moz Ag), which are all part of a large group of related “orogenic” gold-silver deposits in the region that remain under-explored.”
