Vancouver, Canada TheNewswire - March 25, 2021 - Nexus Gold Corp. (" Nexus " or the " Company ") (TSXV:NXS ) ( OTC:NXXGF ) ( FSE:N6E) is pleased to report that its drilling contractor, Full Force Drilling, is currently mobilizing crews and equipment to the Company's 100%-owned McKenzie Gold Project, located in Red Lake, Ontario.

This phase two program will consist of up to 2000 meters of diamond drilling to test the lateral and depth extensions of gold mineralization found during last summer's drill program in the St. Paul's Bay area of the property.   Drilling is expected to commence over the upcoming weekend.

During the company's 2020 phase one drill program gold mineralization was encountered in 11 of 13 holes drilled with significant intersections being reported from holes MK-20-006 which returned 2.75 meters of 13.25 grams-per-tonne ("g/t") gold ("Au"), including 36.20 g/t Au over 1m, and MK-20-008 returned a significant intercept of 117.5 meters of 0.62 g/t Au, including 55.5 meters of 1.00 g/t Au, which also includes intercepts of 6m of 2.37 g/t Au, 2m of 4.28 g/t Au, and 9m of 1.14 g/t Au, among others (see table 1). Drill hole MK-20-007, which was drilled approximately 25m east of hole MK-20-008, returned anomalous gold grades of 0.36 g/t Au over 117m, including notable intercepts 9.4m of 1.26 g/t Au, 4m of 1.13 g/t Au, and 1.5m of 4.64 g/t Au.

"We are happy to get back to McKenzie and potentially build on the positive results of last year," said Alex Klenman, President and CEO.  "With that initial drill program, we were able to not only replicate the higher-grade, narrow gold intercepts previously encountered in historical drilling, but we were also able to establish the presence of lengthier runs of near one-gram disseminated gold, which hadn't been drilled there before.  With two types of mineralization in the southern section of the property, it's a compelling target area and one we're eager to expand on," continued Mr. Klenman.

Table 1: Summary of significant drill results, summer 2020 drill program, McKenzie Gold Project

The company will be testing two styles of mineralization on the property, with a series of gold bearing quartz veins encountered in holes MK-20-1-6, 9, and 10 and broader, disseminated gold mineralization occurring in the Dome Stock in drill holes Mk-20-007 and 008.  The company has once again contracted Rimini Exploration to operate the project and conduct the geological and technical logging as well as handling, splitting, and sampling of the drill core.

Four Major Exploration Programs Completed with Assays Pending

Four Major Exploration Programs Completed with Assays Pending

PolarX Limited (ASX: PXX, the Company) advises that it has successfully completed four major exploration programs in the last four months, with assays pending from each. These programs, in chronological order of completion, are:

  1. Caribou Dome: Drill intersections containing massive copper and iron sulphides from the mineral resource estimate envelope (see Figures 1 and 2). Refer to ASX release dated 31 August 2021 for more information. These samples were submitted to the sample preparation lab in Fairbanks, Alaska in mid-September.
  2. Caribou Dome: Drill intersections containing disseminated and vein-hosted native copper mineralisation hosted in andesitic-basalt lava flows and of a similar nature to the Keweenaw copper deposits in Michigan (Figures 3, 4 and 5). Refer ASX release dated 5 October 2021.
  3. Humboldt Range Project, Nevada: Channel samples of outcropping alteration and mineralisation associated with extensive stockworks of quartz veins in the Star Canyon area (see Figures 6 to 9 inclusive).
    • Previous field validation identified extensive outcropping ridges of intensely silicified and oxidised volcanic rocks hosting multiple quartz vein arrays and old gold-silver workings (Figure 8).
    • The alteration reaches widths of up to 200m and extends over more than 400m of strike length before being concealed under thin soils to the north and south. This area represents the best-known target in the entire project for large tonnage, lowmoderate grade mineralisation.
    • Channel samples (Figure 9) representing a cumulative length of 467.8m were submitted to the assay laboratory in Reno, Nevada on 19 November.
  4. Humboldt Range Project: Infill soil sampling to define the best gold anomalies more precisely in the Black Canyon claims. Refer ASX release dated 13 October 2021. Samples submitted to Reno lab on 19 November.

These samples were submitted to the sample preparation laboratory in early October.

5 Biggest ASX Precious Metal ETFs

Precious metals have long been considered a way for investors to diversify their portfolios.

For investment purposes, they have low or negative correlations with the stock and bond markets, reducing risk and offering protection against volatility. On the inflation side, these metals have intrinsic value that is not tied to economic growth, are tangible assets that don’t carry a credit risk and are in limited supply.

But investing in precious metals as bullion is a cumbersome process — not everyone has a place to store physical metal, and paying for storage can eat into profit value. Holding actual metal may also not provide enough liquidity.
