NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") has received all assays of the Phase 2 drill program at its 100% controlled Slumber Gold Project ("Slumber") located approximately 50 miles northwest of Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA. The drill program was comprised of 9 reverse circulation ("RC") drill holes, totaling 1,859 m (6,100 ft

Key Highlights from Phase 2 Drill Program at Slumber Gold Project

  • Drilling has outlined a new 600 meter-wide mineralized oxide gold zone close to surface with notable drill intercepts, including a very encouraging 18.3 m @ 0.52 g/t Au beginning at 48.7 m in Hole SL-11,and hosted in an oxidized and silicified rhyolite which correlates with a resistive blanket as seen in CSAMT data (please refer to Figure 1). Another hole, SL-14, intersected 134.2m @ 0.14 g/t Au starting from surface.

  • The near surface oxidized gold intersection is of signficance noting Argonaut Gold (U.S.) Corp.'s Florida Canyon Gold Mine, down the highway from Slumber, is in operation with reserves grading 0.43 g/t Au.

  • This newly discovered zone is separate from that discovered during the 2019 drill program, and will be prioritized for follow up work in 2021.

  • Recent stream sediment and rock chip sampling has identified two additional parallel structures which remain untested.

  • The source of the mineralized resistive blanket is believed to be higher grade feeder structures at depth.

  • As previously reported, due to unexpected high volumes of ground water, priority targets in drill holes SL-9, SL-10, SL-13, SL-14, SL-15 and SL-16 were not adequately tested, due to the holes being terminated short of planned depth (refer to Figure 2 below).

  • The primary CSAMT-interpreted targets, where NV Gold was targeting a potential "Sleeper-type" gold system at Slumber, remain untested.

"It is exciting to discover a new near surface oxide gold zone at Slumber. Hole SL-11, intersected 18.3m grading 0.52 g/t Au in silicified rhyolite. To follow up, NV Gold will be initiating its new field season at Slumber with additional detailed mapping and execution of a new soil sampling grid to assist in delineating this newly discovered near-surface oxide gold zone. Structural data from mapping will also help us target the potentially higher grade mineralized structures that fed this system. We anticipate being able to conduct follow up drilling later this year,"commented Peter A. Ball, President and CEO of NV Gold. "In addition, we appreciate the incredible response to our recent private placement announced May 5th, 2021, which is expected to close in the next few days."

In a future Phase 3 drill program, NV Gold's plans to utilize RC and diamond core drilling to overcome groundwater issues faced during Phase 2 drilling. Phase 3 drilling will be planned once additional mapping and soil sampling programs are complete.

5 Top Weekly TSX Performers: Assay Results Send Xtra-Gold Higher

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 19,030.09 early last Friday (June 24) morning. The index was on the rebound, and managed to close the week up at 19,061.98.

Looking over to the commodities sector, oil prices were on the rise by the end of the week, while gold and silver were on track for weekly declines.

"Our expectation is that prices do rise beyond September, October," Jeffrey Christian of CPM Group told the Investing News Network at this year’s Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada convention.

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.

VIDEO — Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for Gold

Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for

The US Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 basis points last week in its ongoing fight against inflation, amping up its efforts to tame prices and leaving market watchers wondering what's next.

Speaking just ahead of the central bank's meeting, Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management, said usually the Fed starts out hawkish and then backs off. But this time around the opposite is happening.

This is due to various factors, but US President Joe Biden's recent meeting with Fed Chair Jerome Powell is among them — in their discussion, Biden expressed that inflation is the Fed's responsibility.
