New Results Include 25.5 g/t Au over 5.5 m , 11.0 g/t Au over 9.1 m & 17.2 g/t Au over 4.2 m

i-80 Gold Corp. (TSX: IAU) (OTCQX: IAUCF) ("i-80", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that continued drilling was successful in further delineating a new high-grade horizon, the South Pacific Zone ("SPZ"), at the Company's Granite Creek Property ("Granite Creek" or "the Property") located in Humboldt County, Nevada .

Surface drilling is targeting the expansion of mineralization at depth below, and to the north of, the mine workings at Granite Creek. The high-grade results received to-date from SPZ have exceeded expectations and suggests potential to substantively expand mineral resources on the Property. To-date, results have been received for the first of eleven (11) holes of sixteen (16) drill holes now completed to test the SPZ target with all drill holes that have reached the target returning impressive gold grades and widths of mineralization. Owing to the early success of the expansion drilling, the 2022 program has been expanded to ~30,000m of drilling and additional drill rigs have been added both on surface and underground.

Highlight results from SPZ drilling:

  • 17.2 g/t Au over 3.8 m and 22.0 g/t Au over 3.4 m in hole iGS21-07
  • 10.5 g/t Au over 3.8 and 8.0 g/t Au over 4.8 m in hole iGS21-08
  • 17.2 g/t Au over 4.2 m in hole iGS21-10
  • 25.5 g/t Au over 5.5 m in hole iGS21-11
  • 11.0 g/t over 9.1 m including 15.5 g/t over 5.5 m in hole iGS21-12

Drilling of the SPZ has been elevated to the primary exploration target on the Property with multiple drill rigs completing delineation drilling as well as step-out drilling designed to continue to expand mineralization along strike and at depth where the deposit remains open. It is anticipated that SPZ will be included in a resource update following the 2022 drill campaign. High-grade mineralization occurs at the contact of the Upper and Lower Comus Formation rock units, and also associated with interpreted north to northeast striking splay faults resulting in multiple intercepts in some holes and remains wide open at depth and along strike to the north (see Figures 1 and 2).

"The consistency of high-grade gold mineralization in the South Pacific Zone is truly impressive as the ongoing drill program continues to demonstrate the significant upside opportunity at Granite Creek," stated Ewan Downie , Chief Executive Officer of i-80. "Including programs at Ruby Hill and McCoy-Cove in 2022, we expect to drill in excess of 50,000 metres in 2022 with a goal of expanding our already enviable resource base."

High-grade mineralization at Granite Creek occurs in a near-identical geological setting as that at Nevada Gold Mines' ("NGM"), multi-million-ounce Turquoise Ridge Mine that is located immediately to the north (see Figure 3); proximal to a major regional fault (the Getchell or Range Front fault) on the eastern edge of the large Osgood Mountains intrusive complex. The Granite Creek deposit remains open at depth and along strike from the existing underground workings.

It is expected that refractory mineralization mined from the underground operation at Granite Creek will initially be trucked to Twin Creeks for processing, pursuant to the agreement with NGM, until such time that the Company's Lone Tree facility is operational.

5 Basic Facts About Gold

Gold has diverse uses, and throughout history it has been widely used in art, jewelry and technology.

But the precious metal has also long been considered a safe haven, and as a result many investors turn towards it during tough political and economic times. Physical gold bullion coins are a common way to get exposure, but other ways to jump into the space are exchange-traded funds (ETFs), gold futures, options and gold company stocks.

Gold is arguably a solid long-term investment, so those new to the sector will be curious to know more about the yellow metal before jumping into the market. Here are five basic facts about gold that all investors should know.
