NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(FSE:8NV) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") The Company announced today an update on its active projects in Nevada, USA

Slumber Gold Project, Humboldt County, Nevada

Our Q4/Q1-2021/22 drill program at Slumber has currently completed ten reverse circulation drill holes totaling approximately 2012 meters. Two RC and two core holes remain to be drilled during the current program. Results have been received for the first five holes and are summarized in the table below (see Table 1). These holes have encountered significant thicknesses of low-grade oxide gold mineralization, distributed over an area over 800+ meters by 300+ meters with thicknesses in excess of 100-150 meters. Most the holes bottomed in gold mineralization, depth-limited by ongoing equipment challenges and ground water. Slumber is now demonstrated to be a significant low-grade gold system, open in all directions, especially down-dip. Importantly, the current drilling program has confirmed the low-resistor zones from our CSAMT work are indeed mineralized (Refer to press release on Sept. 7th, 2021). These low-resistor zones reflect hydrothermally brecciated and intensely silicifiedvolcanics with consistent gold values (see Figure 3). As reported previously, the Slumber mineralization is largely obscured by recent gravels, making surface sampling and mapping largely ineffective. Consequently, NVX has recently completed an IP/Resistivity and is undertaking Mercury-vapor and biochemistry surveys over the target area to assist in further target definition (stated Thomas Klein, VP Exploration, NV Gold).

The Company has also performed a preliminary cyanide solubility test on ten, widely distributed drill intervals with very encouraging results demonstrating high initial recoveries (+95%).

The balance of this drill campaign is now focused on testing the deeper parts of the Slumber system, further examining areas illuminated by the recent IP/Resistivity work.

John Watson, CEO of NV Gold commented "The successful work completed so far at Slumber has been technically challenging, with winter conditions, personnel constraints, water inflow challenges and slow lab results. Despite this, these results have confirmed the presence of a new, significant, oxide gold system in an unexplored area of Nevada. The gold zone remains open in almost all dimensions and has potential for higher grades at depth and within structurally-prepared zones being identified by geophysics and shallow drill intercepts. The project is now considered to be in the early-stages of a discovery. We appreciate our investors' patience during our exciting work at Slumber."

The current drilling further confirms the correlation of the alteration and mineralization to the low resistor zone identified by last year's CSAMT work. While this alteration appears promising for gold mineralization, values are expected to remain in the lower range as we continue to improve our definition of the gold system and sharpen the subsequent targeting of feeder zones. Further results from this program are expected to be received in late March or early April, again depending upon laboratory constraints related to COVID and staffing.

Near-Term Strategy and Outlook

The Company continues its focus on Nevada and the Great Basin, one of the largest and most productive gold provinces in the world. On a regional-scale, Nevada is thought by many to be a thoroughly explored gold province. Much of the near surface gold that has been found over the past 40 years has already been mined or is being mined today. To find significant new deposits, the successful explorer needs to employ modern, more sensitive sampling and interpretive techniques and a willingness to take risks with the drill. The breadth of experience of our staff and advisors gives us our advantage. Over 50% of Nevada is covered by recent basin sediments or volcanic cover, which often obscures the classic, visible expressions of mineralization. These covered areas are composed of the same rocks with the same temporal placement as the gold deposits found in the nearby ranges. There is a strong likelihood that other, similar-sized deposits await discovery! Significant discovery potential continues to remain in one of the pre-eminent gold provinces on Earth. The Company has a strong property position with over 20 projects, ranging from Greenfields to advanced "pre-discovery". Our property portfolio covers a number of geologic environments at varying levels of advancement. Holding costs for most of these properties are minimal, particularly those that are held as joint venture or lease-out possibilities.

It is our plan to drill 4-6 projects in the 12-18-month time horizon, providing a good news flow and multiple opportunities for success. We look forward to a productive and successful exploration season ahead.

NV Gold Confirms Potential Extension of Gold Mineralization at Slumber Project

NV Gold Confirms Potential Extension of Gold Mineralization at Slumber Project

NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(Frankfurt:8NV) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") has confirmed the correlation of a "low-resistivity zone" with known alteration and possible gold mineralization at its 100% controlled Slumber Gold Project ("Slumber") located approximately 50 miles northwest of Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA

The Q4-2021 drill program at Slumber has currently completed five RC (reverse circulation) drill holes totaling approximately 900 meters. The goal of this program is the confirmation of a reinterpreted geological model and correlation of alteration and possible gold mineralization with a low resistivity zone identified by last year's CSAMT work (see press release September 7th, 2021). The initial holes appear to confirm this previously untested concept.

Drilling Commences at the Slumber Gold Project, Humboldt County, Nevada

NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(FSE:8NV) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the 100% controlled Slumber Gold Project ("Slumber") located approximately 50 miles northwest of Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA. Drilling at Slumber will encompass up to 1,500 m in 6-8 RC drill holes

"Drilling commenced today at the Slumber Gold Project, targeting a potential shallow oxide gold system that was newly identified in our late-2020 program." commented John Watson, President and CEO of NV Gold. This marks the third phase of drilling at Slumber, with continuing progress on the property. The mineralization at Slumber is almost entirely obscured by gravel cover, making exploration challenging. This drilling marks the beginning of a multi-project drilling campaign, expected to continue through Q4 and perhaps into Q2-2022. For additional information on the Slumber program plans, please refer to the Company's press release dated 9-7-2021.

Brian Leni: Precious Metals Thesis is "Overwhelming" — Be Picky, Buy Best of the Bestyoutu.be

Now trading just above US$1,800 per ounce, the gold price isn't performing as well as some investors would like. But for Brian Leni, founder of Junior Stock Review, the outlook remains bright.

"To me the value in the precious metals and the overall precious metals thesis is just so strong it's overwhelming," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Leni describes himself as a value investor, and emphasized that for him the precious metals story isn't a question of "if," it's a question of "when" — the key is picking the right companies and being ready to wait.

George Salamis: Major Gold Miners Making Money, but Volatility Curbing Big Decisionsyoutu.be

Turmoil continues to rock the broader markets, and while the gold price has also suffered declines, George Salamis believes it's holding up well compared to other assets.

"Gold has hung in there pretty well relative to other investments — other commodities, currencies. I think it's held its own," he said at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

Salamis, who is the president and CEO of Integra Resources (TSXV:ITR,NYSEAMERICAN:ITRG), explained that he also sees gold miners doing well, but thinks volatility is stopping them from making moves.
