Vancouver, Canada - TheNewswire - September 2 7 , 2021 - Nexus Gold Corp. (" Nexus " or the " Company ") (TSXV:NXS ) ( OTC:NXXGF ) ( FSE:N6E) is pleased to announce it has entered into a definitive share purchase agreement, dated effective September 23, 2021, with Cyclone North Resources Inc. (" Cyclone ") and each of the shareholders of Cyclone (collectively, the " Vendors "), pursuant to which the Company proposes to acquire all of the outstanding share capital of Cyclone from the Vendors.

The Cyclone Project consists of a large, district-scale gold-nickel exploration project, located in the James Bay Region of northern Quebec.  Within the James Bay Region are several past / producing gold mines including Newmont's Eleonore Gold Mine, which began production in 2014.   Cyclone consists of 260 mineral claims, totalling 13,166 hectares, covering a 28-kilometer-long portion of the Aquilon Greenstone Belt.  The Aquilon Belt is a relatively newly characterized (2011) series of volcano-sedimentary rocks that hosts potential for gold and nickel/copper mineralization.

Sirios Resources has conducted several exploration programs at their Aquilon Property, located immediately to the west of the Cyclone Property, in the same greenstone belt.  Sirios' property has thirty (30) high-grade surface gold showings, including some with spectacular gold grades up to 800 grams per tonne and more (see Sirios Resources news releases September 22, 2020, and January 19, 2011).  Numerous shallow drill holes were completed on the property over the years (205 holes totaling 12,247m), with the majority of the work concentrated on four of the showings.

Historical exploration at Cyclone consists of regional-scale mapping and prospecting, as well as an airborne magnetic-electromagnetic (EM) survey.  The regional-scale mapping confirmed the mafic and ultramafic rocks, felsic volcanics and iron-formation.  During the regional-scale mapping, some of the ultramafic rocks were found to contain minor sulphide (pyrhhotite, chalcopyrite and pyrite) with elevated nickel and chromium.  The EM conductors remain largely un-tested.

Two types of gold mineralization have been identified within the western part of the belt.   High grade vein-type gold mineralization found in auriferous quartz and carbonate veins hosted within felsic rock associated with felsite's and disseminated pyrite halos.  Mineralization tends to be found along a strong lineament known as the Wolfe Corridor.  And lower grade gold mineralization associated with bands of disseminated sulphides (Py-Po) with some anomalous copper and zinc values.  Large volumes of ultramafic rock at the Cyclone Property suggest there is good potential for magmatic sulphide mineralization (Ni +/- PGE's).

"This acquisitions gives our Canadian portfolio a district scale foothold in an underexplored greenstone belt, in a well established mining area," said Alex Klenman, President and CEO.  "Archean greenstones host the vast majority of gold mineralization in Canada, and the immediate area has produced some bonanza grade gold values.  We feel the ability to develop almost an entire greenstone with multiple material upside will, in time, strengthen our asset base.  We're looking forward to working with the vendors and getting work done in the coming months," continued Mr. Klenman.

The Cyclone Project has not yet seen any drilling, or a systematic exploration program for gold or base-metals.  At the north end of the Property, it is approximately 1.5 kilometres from an all-weather access road to the La Forge hydroelectric facility, and the all-weather Trans-Taiga Highway passes less than 1 kilometer from the south end of the Property.

The Company is at arms-length from each of Cyclone, and the Vendors. In consideration for all of the outstanding share capital of Cyclone, the Company has agreed to issue 12,000,000 common shares.  In connection with completion of the transaction, the Company does not expect to assume any material liabilities, except for a cash payment of $50,000 related to ownership of the Cyclone Project and the requirement to fund exploration expenditures of at least $125,000 on or before March 31, 2022, to maintain the Project.  The transaction will not result in the creation of a new insider, or a change of control, of the Company, within the meaning of applicable securities laws.  Completion of the transaction remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and cannot be completed until such approval has been received.  No finder's fees or commissions are payable in connection with the transaction.

Warren Robb P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration, is the designated Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 has approved, the technical information contained in this release.

12 Largest Producers of Gold by Country (Updated 2022)

The gold price has tracked higher in the past few years, sparking interest in the biggest producers.

The precious metal’s price gains have come along with the uncertainty born from the global economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as geopolitical turmoil.

These circumstances have left investors seeking safe-haven assets like gold. So far gold production levels have seemed to defy pandemic disruptions, but rising inflation is likely to push up costs for miners.
