Lahontan Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LG) (formerly, 1246765 B.C. Ltd.) (the "Company" or "Lahontan") is pleased to announce that it has begun its 2022 exploration program at its high-grade Moho Project located in Nevada's prolific Walker Lane. Previous exploration at the 9.2 km2 Moho Project includes almost 2,000 metres of core drilling in 2018, over 370 underground and surface rock-chip and channel samples, and a project-wide ground magnetic survey. Highlights from the 2018 core drilling campaign conducted by KA Gold LLC include

  • Drill hole MOH-002C: 1.4 metres grading 12.8 gpt Au, 312 gpt Ag, 10.2% Pb (20.7 gpt Au Eq), (150.0 - 151.4 metres down-hole).
  • Drill hole MOH-005C: 1.2 metres grading 9.6 gpt Au and 4.1 gpt Ag (75.6 - 75.8 metres down-hole).
  • Drill hole MOH-006C: 0.4 metres grading 6.2 gpt Au, 123 gpt Ag, 3.9% Pb (9.2 gpt Au Eq), (154.9 - 155.3 metres down-hole).

Note: The drill holes referenced above were drilled at an angle to the structure, therefore the intervals represent approximate true width. Au Eq equals (Au (gpt) + (Ag gpt/75)) plus (% Pb * 0.36 gpt Au). Metallurgical recovery has not been factored as insufficient test-work is available to determine potential Ag and Pb recoveries.

The Moho Project explores a series of en-echelon, parallel, precious and base metal vein systems that are exposed over a strike length in excess of 2,500 metres, drilling to date is very shallow. Based on drilling and underground sampling, the Moho system remains unconstrained. The focus of this phase of the 2022 exploration is to complete a detailed structural interpretation of the Moho vein system to guide 2022 drilling later this year.

Kimberly Ann, CEO, President, Director, and Founder of Lahontan commented: "We are excited to begin our 2022 exploration program at Moho. We have had incredible results at our flagship Santa Fe Project this year, however the Company is fortunate to have multiple high quality Nevada exploration assets. Moho is the most underexplored high-grade vein camp in the Walker Lane. Prior to the 2018 drilling program by KA Gold, there had been no significant exploration in the district despite an impressive history of high-grade precious metal production. Given the strike length of the multiple parallel veins, the vertical range of precious metal mineralization, and the scant shallow drilling to date, Lahontan views Moho as an exploration asset with considerable upside and we look forward to drilling at Moho later this year".

About Lahontan Gold Corp:

Lahontan Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LG)is a Canadian mineral exploration company that holds, through its US subsidiaries, three top-tier gold and silver exploration properties in the Walker Lane of mining friendly Nevada. Lahontan's flagship property, the 19 km2 Santa Fe Project, is a past producing gold and silver mine with excellent potential to host significant gold and silver resources (past production of 375,000 ounces of gold and 710,000 ounces of silver between 1988 and 1992; Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, 1996). Modeling of over 110,000 metres of historic drilling, geologic mapping, and geochemical sampling outline both shallow, oxidized gold and silver mineralization as well as deeper high grade potential resources. The Company is completing an aggressive 25,000 metre drilling program with the goal of publishing a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") compliant mineral resource estimate in 2022.

Lahontan Drills New "Bonanza" High-Grade Zone at Santa Fe: 25.9m Grading 20.36 gpt Au Incl. 4.6m Grading 112.3 gpt Au

Lahontan Drills New "Bonanza" High-Grade Zone at Santa Fe: 25.9m Grading 20.36 gpt Au Incl. 4.6m Grading 112.3 gpt Au

Lahontan Gold Corp. (TSXV:LG) (formerly, 1246765 B.C. Ltd.) (the "Company" or "Lahontan") is pleased to announce drill results from two reverse-circulation rotary ("RC") drill holes exploring the Santa Fe pit area of the Company's 19 km2 Santa Fe Project in Nevada's Walker Lane. The two drill holes, totaling 518.2 metres, were completed in late 2021. These drill holes targeted northwest and down-dip step outs from known gold and silver mineralization along the Santa Fe fault. Highlights include

  • SF21-014R: This RC drill hole is located approximately 350 metres northwest of the newly discovered Big Horn high-grade zone and intercepted yet another area of high-grade gold mineralization: 25.9 metre interval grading 20.36 gpt Au (please see table and map below). This newly discovered high-grade zone, called "Bonanza", has set a new standard with the highest-grade Au assays in project history: 4.6m grading 112.3 gpt Au. The Company has now identified three distinct high-grade gold zones along nearly 800 metres of strike length on the Santa Fe fault that remain open at depth and to the northwest.
  • SF21-009R: This hole was drilled from the same site as SF21-014R and intercepted shallow transition and oxide gold mineralization: 35.1m grading 1.07 gpt Au, expanding the envelope of oxide and transition mineralization in this corner of the Santa Fe pit and producing new targets for further step-out drilling.

Kimberly Ann, CEO, President, Director, and Founder of Lahontan Gold Corp commented: "The discovery of yet another high-grade zone along the Santa Fe fault underscores the opportunity for finding additional high-grade zones at the Santa Fe Project. The grades seen in the Bonanza and Big Horn zones are exceptional for a Carlin-style gold deposit. The distribution of high-grade gold and silver mineralization occurs in a "string of pearls" manner, with each "pearl" corresponding to the intersection between the northwest-trending Santa Fe fault and easterly-trending structures. This interpretation generates multiple high-grade targets northwest of the Bonanza zone and can also be applied elsewhere in the district as we search for additional high-grade mineralization. The BH, Big Horn, and Bonanza high-grade zones are open down-dip, down-rake, and the Bonanza zone remains open to the northwest with the high-grade resource potential unconstrained at depth by drilling."

Lahontan Gold Grows  Land Position at Santa Fe

Lahontan Gold Grows Land Position at Santa Fe

Lahontan Gold Corp. (TSXV:LG) (formerly, 1246765 B.C. Ltd.) (the "Company" or "Lahontan") is pleased to announce that the Company has expanded its land holdings at its flagship Santa Fe Project by staking 22 unpatented lode mining claims. The claims cover potential southern extensions to the high-grade BH Zone as well as surface geochem and hydrothermal alteration anomalies. The claims also cover small gaps between existing land holdings and adjacent claimants. With the new unpatented lode mining claims, Lahontan's Santa Fe project now encompasses over 19 square kilometers in the heart of Nevada's prolific Walker Lane

Kimberly Ann, President & CEO commented: "The Walker Lane of Nevada is an incredibly competitive mining and exploration jurisdiction, and Lahontan wants to be very proactive when the opportunity to acquire new claims is available. A portion of our new claims cover geologic structures which extend southerly from the Santa Fe open pit and the BH Zone. The structures influence the distribution of hydrothermal alteration in outcrop and represent future exploration targets. Our team is gearing up for the resumption of drilling at Santa Fe and it's important to complete these tasks before drilling commences".

George Salamis: Major Gold Miners Making Money, but Volatility Curbing Big Decisionsyoutu.be

Turmoil continues to rock the broader markets, and while the gold price has also suffered declines, George Salamis believes it's holding up well compared to other assets.

"Gold has hung in there pretty well relative to other investments — other commodities, currencies. I think it's held its own," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Salamis, who is the president and CEO of Integra Resources (TSXV:ITR,NYSEAMERICAN:ITRG), explained that he also sees gold miners doing well, but thinks volatility is stopping them from making moves.

Will Rhind: Upside Favors Gold; Strong US Dollar Checking Gains for Nowyoutu.be

Strength in the US dollar is keeping the gold price in check right now, but that won't last forever.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares, said the yellow metal is in a good position given market conditions and looks set to strengthen moving forward.

"(Gold has) really managed to shrug off a lot of the negatives around rising rates and a strong dollar, and I think people have got to ask themselves, 'How much more can the dollar strengthen from here? ... Realistically is there more upside for the dollar here, or for gold?' I think clearly I'm in the camp of favoring gold on that one," he said.
