NV Gold Commenced IP Survey at its Sandy Gold Project in Nevada

NV Gold Corporation ( TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF) (" NV Gold " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce that the Company has initiated its planned IP Survey at its 100%-owned Sandy Gold Project (" Sandy "), located within the Walker Lane, Lyon County, Nevada, USA. Combined with the Leapfrog modelling and detailed mapping earlier in the 3 rd Quarter, the outcome of the IP Survey will be used for better target definition to guide a 2 nd Phase drilling program projected for the 1 st Quarter of 2022 or earlier depending on equipment availability

Recap of previously announced 2021 Sandy Project Highlights

  • The Company completed its expanded program of 17 RC (Reverse Circulation) drill holes totaling 3,811 m (12,505 ft) in 1 st Quarter of 2021.
  • The "maiden" RC drilling has encountered a large epithermal gold system. The alteration footprint at the surface has a strike length of 2.4 kilometers and a width of half a kilometer. Most of the property remains undrilled, and the system remains open at depth and under late volcanic cover.
  • A surface rock chip sampling program completed yielded positive gold values from anomalous to high grade. Of note, five samples yielded 11.3 g/t Au and 11.6 g/t Ag, 11.5 g/t Au and 14.1 g/t Ag, and 18.1 g/t Au and 43.2 g/t Ag (refer to Figure 1).
  • All seventeen of the 2021 RC holes intercepted anomalous gold and strong trace element geochemistry. Twelve holes were above a threshold of >3 meters @ >0.1 g/t Au. The strongest intercept was 22.9 meters @ 0.65 g/t Au from 29 meters to 51.9 meters (including 6.1 meters of 1.58 g/t Au at 38.1 meters) in SD-2 (refer to Figure 1).

Mapping Conclusions

Hydrothermal alteration at Sandy is predominantly clay to silica-clay alteration (of the tuffaceous rocks) in the Southwest Zone, mostly seen as float around epithermal quartz vein pieces, while stronger (massive and "near-massive") silicification forms ridgelines and broader structural zones in the upper Northeast Zone (refer to Figures 1 & 3). Very white clay, possibly illite, is interpreted in the strongest silica-clay altered zones, both in the Southwest and Northeast Zones. The alteration is consistent with low sulfidation vein alteration and looks to be clay alteration developed on the margins or above epithermal veins. Based on the size, elevation range, zonation (silica above, clay below) and apparent geometry of the alteration, the Northeast Zone could be an altered cap overlying a preserved epithermal vein system.

The upcoming IP (refer to Figure 2) survey should be especially useful to interpret the 3D geometry of the alteration at the Northeast zone. Even if high resistivity is relatively shallow (shallow silicification) and any subsurface veins are too narrow to detect, the widespread clay alteration should produce moderate resistivity/conductivity anomalies in 3D and any roots or zones of greater resistivity or conductivity (near vein halo alteration) may be considered as vein drill targets. Deeper zones of greater chargeability may indicate broader sulfide rich zones around deeper veins and would also be potential drill targets. Once the IP surveying is completed, deeper drill targeting should be straightforward.

"The strike-length and amount of alteration and the presence of high-grade Au of up to 18.1 g/t Au from rock chips remain encouraging for an economic gold system at Sandy. I was pleased to have Mr. Myers and Ms. Teal (previously known as Pinto) involved in the program, which will provide an immediate upgrade in data quality. I have worked with Stan and Rita for many years together at Yanacocha, Peru, where we were engaged in numerous discoveries, including the Kupfertal Porphyry. Several Au and trace element geochem anomalies remain untested at Sandy, and the Leapfrog modelling suggests there may be open gold mineralization in the Southwest Zone. In addition, mapping has identified a highly silicified and altered cap, possibly overlying a preserved epithermal vein system at the Northeast Zone that is very encouraging. I am excited and looking forward to see the IP results soon to be included and guiding our 2 nd Phase drilling campaign in 1 st Q of 2022",stated Thomas Klein, VP Exploration, NV Gold.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Pulls Back After Spike, Central Banks Boost Holdings

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Pulls Back After Spike, Central Banks Boost Holdings

It was a week of ups and downs for the gold price, which traded as high as US$1,957 per ounce and as low as US$1,863. At the time of this writing on Friday (February 3), the yellow metal was around US$1,865.

What factors are responsible for that broad range? The US Federal Reserve played a role mid-week.

The central bank's first meeting of the year ran from Tuesday (January 31) to Wednesday (February 1), and it ended with an interest rate hike of 25 basis points, the smallest since last March. The Fed's benchmark interest rate now sits at 4.5 to 4.75 percent.

VIDEO — Ross Beaty: Gold Fundamentals Terrific, Set to Blow Through Previous High

After gold's flat performance in 2022, well-known mining sector entrepreneur Ross Beaty has a better outlook for 2023.

"Quite frankly, I think there's so much momentum right now — I'm very confident gold's going to blow through its previous high and sail into new territory, probably this year," he said at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC).

In Beaty's view, it was the US dollar's strength that killed gold's momentum last year. But even he had trouble reconciling the yellow metal's lack of momentum with the sheer number of seemingly positive price drivers.

VIDEO — Nick Santiago: Gold Can Still Pull Back to US$1,500 Before All-time High

The gold price has been on the rise for the last few months, but Nick Santiago, CEO and chief market strategist at, still believes a big pullback to the US$1,500 per ounce level is possible.

"I'm not bearish gold at the moment, but if I do get a sell signal, I think the next leg down takes you to that US$1,500 level, which would be the ultimate buy area," he explained to the Investing News Network. "I think that's going to be your chance to really get into gold for the long term. And then I do think gold ultimately breaks out to a new all-time high."

In terms of exactly how high gold could go in 2023, Santiago said he doesn't expect US$5,000 or US$10,000 like some market watchers are projecting. However, he does see the high US$2,000s, or possibly even US$3,000, as possible.

VIDEO — EB Tucker: Gold, Silver Price Levels to Watch, 2023 Investing Strategies

With the new year ahead, "Why Gold? Why Now?" author EB Tucker shared his thoughts on gold and silver, saying that US$2,000 per ounce and US$30 per ounce respectively are important levels for investors to watch.

"US$2,000's got to be a 2023 story," he told the Investing News Network when asked if gold could reach that key price this year. "The way it looks right now, you're US$60 away. I think it could happen fast."

Pointing to gold's rise of about US$300 since early November, Tucker said that the futures market sets the spot price, and activity in that arena has stopped weighing on the yellow metal over the last several months.
