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 “) has provided assay results for mineralized holes within fourteen (14) additional reverse circulation (“RC”) 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 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. Assay results from 13 holes are still pending, including all core holes. To date, only 20% of Kinsley Mountain has been drill tested. New Placer Dome reports that results of the 2020 drilling warrant further drilling planned in 2021 to build on multiple new discoveries and potentially increase the current indicated and inferred resources.

For example, drill hole KMR20-030 testing the Main Pit North area intersected high-grade oxide gold approximately 200 metres (656 feet) down-dip from the Main open pit that historically exploited high-grade Dunderberg shale-hosted oxide gold near surface. The KMR20-030 intercept occurs 75 metres (246 feet) outside the current resource pit shell, which provides opportunities for near pit resource expansion during 2021.

Highlights include:

  • 2.88 grams-per-tonne gold (“g/t Au”) (oxide) over 36.6 metres (“m”), including 9.83 g/t Au (oxide) over 7.6 m in KMR20-030 (Figure 1 & Table 1);
  • 1.05 g/t Au gold (oxide) over 24.4 m , including 2.13 g/t Au over 9.1 m in KMR20-022 (Figure 2);
  • 4.83 g/t Au (oxide) over 3.0 m , and 0.40 g/t Au (oxide) over 27.4 m in KMR20- 23B (Figure 2);
  • 1.20 g/t Au (sulphide) over 32.0 m , including 5.81 g/t Au over 3.1 m from a depth of 35.1 m in KMR20-027 at the KNW-Sulphide Fault target.

Key Points:

  • Gold mineralization occurs within Dunderberg shale and underlying Hamburg limestone at or near the contact over a 30 m stratigraphic interval, at vertical depths of less than 120 metres (394 feet);
  • High-grade oxide gold values appear to occur preferentially within a limited number of inclined drill holes suggesting there is a component of steep structural control of mineralization not previously recognized;
  • The current drill results have the potential to expand mineral resources through discovery of new zones of high-grade oxide gold mineralization close to current resource pit shells. New Placer Dome plans an expanded 2021 drill campaign at the Main Pit North area.

Drill hole KMR20-001 (-70/060), collared at the east side of the Western Flank Zone, did not intersect significant mineralization. Drill hole holes KMR20-020 (-65/010), KMR20-024 (-69/180), and KMR20-025 (-67/150) collared on the west and east sides of the Main Pit North oxide target, and drill holes KMR20-018 (-69/292) and KMR20-019 (-79/311) drilled in the KWN-Sulphide Fault area 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.
