Vancouver, Canada - TheNewswire December 7, 2021 - Nexus Gold Corp. (" Nexus " or the " Company ") (TSXV:NXS ) ( OTC:NXXGF ) ( FSE:N6E) is pleased to report that it has received confirmation from the Government of Burkina Faso's Ministre de L'Energie des Mines et Les Carriers that its application for expanding the Dakouli 2 permit has been approved.

The expansion of the Dakouli 2 project has resulted in the exploration permit  being expanded by 1.39 square kilometers. The expansion extends the permit coverage westward from its original configuration and now encompasses areas first identified in 2013 where  previous explorers collected  rock grab samples retuning results of 1.75 grams-per-tonne ("g/t") gold ("Au"), 2.14 g/t Au and 2.32 g/t Au.  These rock samples  are described as white quartz veins hosted in red granite.

Subsequent to the rock sampling a program of Aircore and Reverse Circulation ("RC") drilling was used to investigate the area. The drill program consisted of  four RC holes for 430m (PNRC001-003,009) and 12 AC holes for 250m (PNAC001-012).

The best reported results from this drilling are 12 meters of 1.01 g/t  from hole PNRC001, and 36m of 0.51 g/t in hole PNRC003. Reported Drilling described that the main gold mineralization is associated with a fine-grained syenite dyke with sulphide and quartz veining up to 14m thick.  It's interpreted  that this dyke is striking to the north east and dipping to the south.

Drilling to Date at Dakouli

In late 2020 the Company conducted a Reverse Circulation ("RC") drill program at the 98-sq kms concession consisting of 2,914 meters of exploratory drilling.  The first-ever drill program on the property was designed to test several areas that have returned either high gold values from rock samples or coincidental soil geochemical and geophysical anomalies proximal to artisanal workings ("orpaillages").

Significant results were encountered in several holes, including:

DKL-20-RC-007

  • 4.83 grams-per-tonne ("g/t") gold ("Au") over 20 meters

  • Including 14.51 g/t Au over 6m

  • And 39.6 g/t over 2m

DKL-20-RC-009

  • 1.61 g/t Au over 10m

  • Including 4.11 g/t Au over 2m

DKL-20-RC-010

  • 1.89 g/t Au over 8m

  • Including 6.54 g/t Au over 2

In addition, several holes returned lengthy intercepts of sub-one gram gold, including DKL-20-RC-006 which returned .59 g/t Au over 18 meters, DKL-20-RC-017, which returned .91 g/t Au over 10m, and DKL-20-RC-002 which returned .64 g/t Au over 16 meters.

In the summer of 2021, the Company returned to Dakouli to conduct a 2000m follow up Diamond Drill program.  Results from this program expanded upon the earlier RC drill results with several significant intercepts:

DKL-21-DD-001

  • 0.95 g/t Au over 23m

  • Including 1.01 g/t Au over 15m

  • 1.46 g/t Au over 7m

  • Including 4.87 g/t Au over 1m and 6.88 g/t Au over 1m

DKL-21-DD-002

  • 1.90 g/t Au over 28m

  • Including 10.87 g/t Au over 4m

  • Including 15.1 g/t Au over 1m, and 17 g/t Au over 1m

  • 1.43 g/t Au over 10m

  • Including 10.6 g/t Au over 1m

DKL-21-DD-008

  • 0.86 g/t over 17m

  • Including 1.18 g/t Au over 12m and 2.19 g/t Au over 6m

Drilling has so far primarily been confined to a small section in the upper northeastern portion of the concession ground.

About the Dakouli 2 Gold Concession

The Dakouli 2 exploration permit is a nearly 100-sq km (10,000 hectares) gold exploration property located approximately 100 kilometers due north of the capital city Ouagadougou. Situated on the Goren greenstone belt, Dakouli is proximal to Nordgold's Bissa Mine, and is bisected by the gold-bearing Sabce shear zone.

In late 2018 Company geologists conducted a comprehensive ground reconnaissance program to the west and south of the main orpaillage (artisanal zone) and identified new near surface workings being exploited by artisanal miners. Rock samples collected from these new zones contained various concentrations of visible gold, including coarse nuggety samples.

Follow up work outlined an anomalous zone extending some 500 meters west from the sample zones. Based on those results the Company initiated a 150-line kilometer soil geochemical survey covering the northern half of the Dakouli 2 property. This survey identified three prominent gold geochemical trends.

The primary gold trend parallels the Sabce fault zone and extends for approximately 10 kilometers in a northeast-southwest direction and bisects the property from the northeast corner of the property to its western boundary.  The Sabce fault hosts multiple deposits including Nordgold's 3.4M oz Bissa Mine, located approximately 25km east of the Dakouli ground.

Two secondary gold trends which extend for approximately 6.5 kilometers each are oriented in a northwest to southeast direction and bisect the primary trend.  All three gold geochemical trends are coincidental to geophysical trends identified from the national regional airborne geophysics.

* Please note that while the Company considers sampling and reporting results from the new portions of the exploration permit to be accurate, readers are cautioned that a Qualified Person has been unable to verify the laboratory involved in the analysis of these samples, and no documentation was available regarding quality control procedures utilized in the analysis.

Private Placement Closed

The Company also reports that it completed a non-brokered private placement (the " Offering ") for gross proceeds of $530,000.  In connection with closing of the Offering, the Company has issued 5,000,000 flow-through units (each, an " FT Unit ") and 5,600,000 non-flow-through units (each, an " NFT Unit ").  Each "FT Unit" and "NFT Unit" was issued at a price of $0.05 and consists of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant exercisable at price of $0.07 until December 1, 2024.

The gross proceeds from the Offering will be used for further project development work, for general working capital purposes and to finance Canadian exploration expenses (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) which shall qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada).

All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period until April 2, 2022 in accordance with applicable securities laws.  No finders' fees or commissions were paid in connection with completion of the Offering.

Scottie Resources Intercepts 11.8 g/t Gold Over 6.57 Metres and 37.2 g/t Gold Over 3.71 Metres at Scottie Gold Mine Project and Provides Corporate Update

Scottie Resources Intercepts 11.8 g/t Gold Over 6.57 Metres and 37.2 g/t Gold Over 3.71 Metres at Scottie Gold Mine Project and Provides Corporate Update

Scottie Resources Corp. (" Scottie " or the " Company ") (TSXV: SCOT), (OTCQB:SCTSF), (FSE:SR8) is pleased to report drill assays from its Scottie Gold Mine (SGM) target. Due to the parallel nature of the targeted veins, individual holes were designed to test multiple discreet targets. Highlight intercepts from the reported holes include: 11.8 gt gold over 6.57 metres, 20.6 gt gold over 2.22 metres, and 37.2 gt gold over 3.71 metres in the P, O, and M-Zones respectively. The past-producing high-grade Scottie Gold Mine is located on the Granduc Road, 35 kilometres north of the town of Stewart, BC, and is one of four primary targets that were tested during the 14,500 m program in 2021, which also includes the rapidly advancing Blueberry Zone ( November 9, 2021 ) .

"These results from Scottie Gold Mine illustrate the potential for the expansion of the historic resource at Scottie through both the extension of known ore shoots, as well as revealing the potential of previously untested targets – notably the P-zone which prior to Scottie's involvement had seen no drilling, and now we are hitting intercepts comparable to the mined stopes of the past producing mine." comments President and CEO, Brad Rourke. "The Scottie Gold Mine target continues to deliver as a cornerstone to our primary goal of developing a road accessible, 1M+ ounce high-grade gold resource at our Scottie Gold Mine Project."
