Bravada to Mobilize Drill Rig to Test the Feeder Target at Wind Mountain Gold/Silver Project, Nevada

Bravada Gold Corporation (TSXV: BVA) (FSE: BRTN) (OTCQB: BGAVF) (the "Company" or "Bravada") announces that a drill rig is expected to mobilize to the Company's 100% owned Wind Mountain goldsilver project in northwestern Nevada after the US Thanksgiving holiday. Three or four reverse-circulate drill holes are planned to depths ranging from 360m to 580m as the first relatively deep test of the interpreted feeder zone of this large hydrothermal system.

The Feeder target is interpreted as the deeper source area for gold/silver-bearing hydrothermal fluids that resulted in the shallower disseminated gold/silver open-pit deposit previously mined by Amax Gold and the remaining Resources defined by Bravada. Evidence for the target concept is from Amax's shallow condemnation drill holes and Bravada's geological mapping, geochemical sampling, magnetic geophysics, and nearby 2017/18 deep drill holes. Disseminated gold and silver mineralization on the Wind Mountain property is exposed over a strike length of +6km, indicating a robust gold system that spread laterally over a large area within permeable host sediments; however, a high-grade "feeder" zone has not been discovered to date and that is the objective of this campaign.

In other project news, assays for diamond drilling completed at Bravada's Highland gold/silver project are still pending as assay labs continue to be backed up due to Covid-19 issues and delayed drilling programs that are now underway, which have overwhelmed assay labs. Assays now are expected in December.

Field work was initiated in late October at the Company's 100% owned SF/HC gold project. Initial work included geologic mapping, rock-chip sampling, and claim staking. SF is a Carlin-type gold property located along the Battle Mountain-Eureka Gold trend, approximately 6 kilometers east of Barrick's Goldrush/Red Hill development-stage gold mine in the prolific Cortez district.

About Wind Mountain

The Wind Mountain Property is in northwestern Nevada approximately 160km northeast of Reno in a sparsely populated region with excellent logistics, including county-maintained road access and a power line to the property. It is an historic past-producing, bulk-tonnage gold-silver mine. An independent resource estimate and Preliminary Economic Evaluation for Wind Mountain commissioned by Bravada in 2012 reported:

  • 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 dated April 11, 2012 for details of the resource update. 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.

Jordan Roy-Byrne: Gold Hyperbole is Real, Price Setup "Super Bullish"

Gold has pulled back from its recent all-time high of more than US$2,400 per ounce, but remains elevated.

How high could the yellow metal rise in the longer term? Speaking to the Investing News Network, Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT, MFTA, editor and publisher of the Daily Gold, shared his thoughts on where it may be headed in 2024 and beyond.

"We are in the real sweet spot for what is the biggest breakout for gold in the last 50 years," he said during the interview. "This is the time where a lot of the hyperbolic statements that people like me make, and have been making for the last three or four years — this is the time where it's really ripe for those things to actually play out."
