Novo Resources Corp. ( "Novo" or the "Company" ) (TSX-V: NVO; OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to announce that mapping and surface rock sampling indicate the possibility of considerable extensions of the Beatons Creek conglomerate gold system.


  • The main M1 and M2 conglomerate gold lodes at the Beatons Creek gold project have been traced at surface along the western side of the Grant's Hill fault, adding some 1.6 km of surface strike length, and remain open to the west (see Fig u re 1 below ).
  • Spot rock chip sample results include results of 2.7 g/t Au, 3.5 g/t Au and 2.1 g/t Au from conglomerate material similar to that within the resource area east of the fault (these grades are not necessarily representative of mineralization at Beatons Creek). These samples are believed to be from the important M1 and M2 conglomerate gold lodes.
  • The M1 and M2 gold lodes were encountered in historical diamond drilling within the same fault block, some 3 km to the southeast suggesting this may represent a major extension of the conglomerate system (see Figu r e 2 below ). The system remains wide open down the axis of the Nullagine embayment.
  • These newly prospected areas have recently been consolidated under Novo's control through of the acquisition of Creasy Group interests in the Nullagine area ( for further details, please see the Company's news releases dated June 1 5, 2020 and Septemb e r 15, 2020 ).

Beatons Creek Extensions

Novo's current mapping and sampling program is designed on the basis of an improved geological understanding of the mineralized sequence from its 2018 diamond drilling program and mineral resource update ( please refer to the Company's news release dated April 1 , 2019 ). Diamond drilling across the resource area demonstrated strong continuity of the M1 and M2 gold lodes within the main mineralised sequence, which led to the renewed focus on surface extensions on the western side of the Grant's Hill fault. Preliminary evidence of mineralization was already indicated here from rock sampling completed by previous operators and by Novo in 2013 and 2014.

Detailed mapping west of the Grant's Hill fault has identified the same marker horizons and unit contacts as part of the established resource stratigraphy, including the two boulder lag positions known as the M1 and M2 conglomerate gold lodes. Anomalous rock samples with results akin to those within the current resource area are encouraging and confirm that these lodes are mineralized. Further work including extensive bulk sampling and drilling is required for an adequate test of grade and to confirm these preliminary indications. The next step in the process of determining a Beatons Creek resource extension is to obtain heritage clearance, followed by trenching and costean sampling at surface as well as RC drilling to test the lodes in the subsurface.

Analytic Methodology

Spot rock chip samples were submitted to the Intertek Laboratory in Perth, Australia. Samples were crushed and pulverised and assayed using a 50-gram charge fire assay with an OES-finish. There were no limitations to the verification process and all relevant data was verified. Dr. Quinton Hennigh (P.Geo.) is the qualified person pursuant to NI 43-101 responsible for, and having reviewed and approved, the technical information contained in this news release. Dr. Hennigh is President, Chairman, and a director of Novo Resources Corp.

Experts: Gold Tokenization to Create “Fungible Currency No Politician Can Print”

The gold industry is currently developing the first digital gold token. Underpinned by the World Gold Council’s (WGC) responsible practises framework, the hope is to revolutionize the currency space with fungible gold.

At this year’s Gold Forum Americas, held in Colorado Springs from September 18 to 21, one of the most anticipated presentations was a panel discussion with the CEOs of leading gold-producing companies.

Led by WGC CEO David Tait, it focused on the Gold247 initiative. This WGC-led effort to digitize gold encompasses three areas: integrity, accessibility and fungibility — all of which were discussed by the panelists.
