TSX Venture Exchange: NEV
Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp. ("Nevada Sunrise", or the " Company ") (TSXV: NEV) is pleased to report that its joint venture partner, New Placer Dome Gold Corp. (" New Placer Dome ") (TSXV: NGLD) has provided assay results for the final thirteen drill holes completed during 2020 at the Kinsley Mountain Gold Project ("Kinsley Mountain") located near Wendover, Nevada . Nevada Sunrise holds a 20.01% interest in the Kinsley Mountain joint venture, with New Placer Dome, as operator, holding a 79.99% interest.
The 2020 Kinsley Mountain reverse circulation ("RC") and diamond drill campaign was completed in November 2020 and comprised 49 drill holes totaling 17,970 metres (58,957 feet) testing five target areas within the greater resource area, which consisted of 39 RC holes for 13,610 metres (44,652 feet) and 10 diamond drill holes for 4,360 metres (14,305 feet), with 3 holes abandoned and re-drilled from the same locations. New Placer Dome reports that results of the 2020 drilling warrant further drilling in 2021 to build on multiple new discoveries and potentially increase the current indicated and inferred resources at the Western Flank Zone, Main Pit North Oxide and Secret Spot targets.
Drilling at the Secret Spot has yielded a new discovery of near-surface oxide gold mineralization, in addition to new, deeper high-grade sulphide gold intercepts. Diamond drill hole KMD20-006 testing across the Transverse fault intersected a total of four separate mineralized intervals, including multiple oxide gold zones from surface within Dunderberg shale and the highest-grade interval to date within the Secret Canyon shale at the Secret Spot.
- 1.76 grams/tonne gold ("g/t Au") (oxide) over 18.9 metres ("m") from surface, including 4.46 g/t Au (oxide) over 6.1 m in KMD20-006 at Secret Spot (Figure 1, and Table 1);
- 3.81 g/t Au (sulphide) over 11.6 m from 486.2 m to 497.7 m , including 11.3 g/t Au (sulphide) over 2.9 m in KMD20-006 at Secret Spot (Figure 2);
- 1.77 g/t Au gold (oxide) over 25.3 m , including 2.75 g/t Au over 10.1 m in KMD20- 07B at Secret Spot (Figure 1);
- 0.79 g/t Au (oxide) over 39.8 m in KMD20-008 at Secret Spot (Figure 1);
- 0.53 g/t Au (sulphide) over 19.8 m in KMD20-003 at the Western Flank Zone (Figure 3);
- 0.64 g/t Au (oxide) over 10.7 m in KMR20-029 at the Main Pit North shallow oxide target (Figure 4).
- New Discovery at Secret Spot includes multiple at or near surface Dunderberg shale-hosted oxide gold drill intercepts that warrant follow-up drilling;
- Secret Canyon shale gold (sulphide) intercepts within KMD20-006 represent the highest-grade interval to date at Secret Spot; illustrating the potential of the Secret Spot target to yield high grade gold mineralization similar in tenor to the Western Flank Zone resource located 1.5 kilometres to the north;
- At Western Flank, discovery of a broad zone of within-pit Hamburg limestone-hosted gold (sulphide) mineralization within drill hole KMD20-003 on the southeast margin of the resource is open to expansion in all directions.

Drill holes KMD20-001 (-70/060), KMD20-002 (-72/037), KMD20-004 (-78/083), and KMD20-005 (-80/083) targeting the Western Flank Extension did not intersect significant mineralization. Drill holes KMR20-035 (-80/122), KMR20-036 (-85/020), and KMR20-037 (-82/250) targeting the Transverse fault at Shale Saddle also did not intersect significant mineralization.
Methodology and QA/QC
Assaying was performed by ALS Global ("ALS"), of Vancouver Canada . ALS is an ISO-IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015 accredited analytical laboratory that is independent of New Placer Dome, Nevada Sunrise, and their respective Qualified Persons. RC drill samples were subject to crushing to a minimum of 70% passing 2 mm, followed by pulverizing of a 250-gram split to 85% passing 75 microns. Gold determination was via standard 30-gram fire-assay analysis with atomic absorption spectroscopy ("AAS") finish, in addition to 51 element ICP-MS. Samples returning greater than 10 g/t Au are subject to gravimetric finish. Gold values returning greater than 0.1 g/t Au are also subject to leach analysis where the sample is treated with a 0.25% NaCN solution and rolled for an hour. An aliquot of the final leach solution is then centrifuged and analyzed by AAS.
As operator at Kinsley Mountain, New Placer Dome follows industry standard procedures for the work carried out the Project, with a quality assurance/quality control ("QA/QC") program. Blank, duplicate and standard samples were inserted into the sample sequence sent to the laboratory for analysis. New Placer Dome detected no significant QA/QC issues during review of the data. Nevada Sunrise is not aware of any drilling, sampling, recovery or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to herein.
The scientific and technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Robert M. Allender, Jr. , CPG, RG, SME and a Qualified Person for Nevada Sunrise as defined in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects . Mr. Allender has examined the information provided by New Placer Dome, which includes his review of the sampling, analytical and test data and procedures underlying the information and opinions contained herein.
