NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(FSE:8NV) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Lease Agreement (the "Agreement") with Pete Herrera (the "Vendor"), providing NV Gold the right to lease an undivided 100% right, title and interest in the Discovery Bay Gold Property in Lander County, Nevada ("Discovery Bay

"As noted previously, we are focused on delivering one of NV Gold's most active exploration seasons. The Discovery Bay Gold Project is one of a number of exciting gold projects reviewed internally, and the first acquisition of 2021,"commented Peter A. Ball, President and CEO of NV Gold. "Discovery Bay, with its strategic location and host rocks similar to the multi-million ounce Cove-McCoy Gold Project operated by I-80 Gold Corp., is considered a drill ready advanced gold project at which NV Gold will initiate exploration immediately after drilling is completed at its Slumber Gold Project. I anticipate the acquisition of additional drill ready gold projects to add to our pipeline as we continue our internal review. We continue to discuss other projects within our portfolio for potential joint venture or lease agreements with external parties."

About the Discovery Bay Project

  • The Project is located along the "Rabbit Suture" (Hwy 305), and in proximity to the Cove-McCoy gold deposits in Lander County, Nevada (refer to Figure 1) controlled by I-80 Gold Corp. This North-South structural zone is known to host other mega gold deposits like Turquoise Ridge (Twin Creeks) and the Phoenix and Lone Tree Mines.
  • The Discovery Bay target comprises a one kilometer long, previously unknown, and unexplored window of Triassic Osobb Mountain Quartzite and Cane Springs Limestone (host rocks at McCoy), and other underlying host lithologies. Most of the target is covered by thin layers of Tertiary volcanics (Basal Tuffs) and Quaternary rocks.
  • Historical drilling conducted by Newmont Mining in 2018 encountered a thick blanket of intensely sulfidized intrusive rock in contact with decalcified and Au-anomalous silty limestones.
  • NV Gold recently staked 39 additional claims to cover the surrounding potentially mineralized ground, and plans to conduct an IP (Induced Polarization) survey and ground magnetics, to potentially guide the project towards a drill program in 2021.

"After working in Nevada for over 20 years, I consider Discovery Bay to be a project that deserves to be drilled, based on the excellent work completed to-date and its geological potential. I am extremely excited to work with Pete Herrera, who has owned these claims for nearly 30 years, and has not had the opportunity to drill-test his ideas. To have potentially mineralized Cove-McCoy host lithologies exposed at the surface, and mostly being covered by Tertiary volcanics and Quaternary gravels, makes this a prime target for a potential exciting discovery,"stated Thomas Klein, Exploration Manager, NV Gold.

5 Top Weekly TSXV Performers: Gold Explorers Find Support as Commodities Prices Fall

Major markets were on course for their first weekly gain in a month last Friday (June 24), while the S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) began to claw back losses seen late Thursday (June 23).

Dipping to a five day low of 623.48 overnight, Canada’s junior index moved to 637.83 after the morning bell. It ultimately closed the period slightly higher at 647.33.

Growing recession concerns were bolstered last week after reports that Canada’s inflation rate rose to a 39 year high of 7.7 percent in May. These fears are mounting below the border as well, and have been reflected in the plunging value of copper, a base and industrial metal heavily that is correlated to economic growth.

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Global central bank gold reserves top 35,500 metric tons (MT), approximately one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. The vast majority of central bank gold holdings were acquired in the last decade, when national banks became net buyers of the yellow metal.

Central banks purchase gold for a number of reasons: to mitigate risk, to hedge against inflation and to promote economic stability. In its most recent annual survey released in June 2022, the World Gold Council (WGC) said that 61 percent of central bankers expect global gold reserves to increase over the next 12 months. Nearly three-quarters of respondents cited the precious metal’s “long-term store of value” as a guiding factor in gold purchases.

Central banks added 463 MT of gold to their vaults in 2021, signaling a significant turnaround in demand after the 255 MT decade low experienced in 2020.
