Slumber Gold Project, Humboldt County, Nevada
Our Q4/Q1-2021/22 reverse circulation drill program at Slumber has been completed. Twelve (12) reverse circulation drill holes totaling approximately 2,350 meters (7,710 feet) have been drilled and sampled. Results have been reported for the first five holes and the remaining seven holes are being submitted for assay. These final holes encountered longer thicknesses of silicified, oxide mineralization, distributed over an area in excess of 900 meters by 500+ meters, with drill-site RC chip logging having recorded thicknesses of 100-150 meters or more of mineralized material. The last two (deepest) holes revealed mineralization to depths of nearly 300 meters. The Company reports that Slumber has now been demonstrated to host a low-grade bulk-tonnage, oxide gold system, which remains open in multiple directions. Drilling is still very wide-spaced over this large area, with reasonable expectations of structural and stratigraphically favorable zones of higher grades yet to be encountered.
"I am very pleased that the "Low-Resistivity Model" has confirmed that alteration and related gold mineralization correlate extremely well with the low resistivity zones. All the reverse circulation holes drilled into the easternlow-resistivity extension have intercepted the same type of silicification and oxidation, suggesting that width of the Slumber gold system now appears to exceed half a kilometer (see Figures 1 & 2). NV Gold is also conducting a mercury-vapor survey which will be supported by additional biochemistry sampling to assist in locating potential higher-grade feeder structures." commented Thomas Klein VP Exploration NV Gold.
The Company plans further work at Slumber to include both reverse-circulation and diamond core drilling. A Plan of Operations is envisaged to allow for the larger program.
John Watson, President and CEO of NV Gold added "This years' work at Slumber continues to enlarge the dimensions of a new oxide gold system in Nevada. Our goal is the discovery of a million+ ounce gold deposit, building upon the current program's success. We believe that Slumber shows excellent potential to achieve this goal. As we have stated previously, we feel that there is great potential for new discoveries in Nevada for those willing to take the risks to explore obscured or covered areas of interest."
