NV Gold Receives Confirmation of Gold Mineralization, Interpreted from Low Resistor Target, through Positive Lab Results from Recent RC Drill Holes at Slumber Project

NV Gold Receives Confirmation of Gold Mineralization, Interpreted from Low Resistor Target, through Positive Lab Results from Recent RC Drill Holes at Slumber Project

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 Corporation Reports Positive Rock Chip Samples Results up to 9.63 g/t Au from Triple T Gold Project

NV Gold Corporation Reports Positive Rock Chip Samples Results up to 9.63 g/t Au from Triple T Gold Project

NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(FSE:8NV) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report assay results from the recently completed Rock Chip Sampling Program carried out at its 100%-owned Triple T Gold Project located in the Humboldt Range, Nevada. The Project is situated 7 kilometers east of the Rochester silver-gold operation and 42 kilometers southeast of the Florida Canyon Gold Mine (see Figure 1

During August of 2023 the Company conducted a mapping and rock chip sampling program to extend the known near-surface, oxide gold mineralization of the northern portion of its Triple T property (refer to press release from August 21st, 2023). Twenty-seven rock chip samples were taken of which 24 returned gold values in the anomalous to high-grade range with 5 samples between 2.71 g/t Au and 9.63 g/t Au (see Figure 3 & 4). These samples will help to extend the potential target area by a kilometer to the north of the recently drilled area, and a "New Zone" with gold values over 2 g/t has been identified southwest of it. NV Gold is planning to follow up on these encouraging gold values of up to 9.63 g/t Au (0.34 opt Au) and will further evaluate the gold mineralization of the New Zone. Future goals are to re-evaluate the full gold mineralization potential of this district-scale shear-zone-corridor, which includes the re-evaluation of the historical targets in the south (see Figure 2). An IP (Induced Polarization) geophysical survey is also planned to reveal potentially larger erosion-protected targets to the east.

NV Gold Corporation Reports Positive Drill Results from Triple T Gold Project

NV Gold Corporation Reports Positive Drill Results from Triple T Gold Project

NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF)(FSE:8NV) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report assay results from the recently completed Reverse Circulation (RC) Drill Program carried out at its 100%-owned Triple T Gold Project located in the Humboldt Range, Nevada. The Project is situated 7 kilometers east of the Rochester silver-gold operation and 42 kilometers southeast of the Florida Canyon Gold Mine (see Figure 1

The program consists of 14 shallow RC drill holes totaling 719.3 meters in the northern-most of the three target areas. Almost all drill holes intersected one or more, near-surface mineralized quartz veins with up to 4.57 m averaging 2.40 g/t Au in TT-9 and 9.14 m averaging 1.39 g/t Au in hole TT-11 (see Figure 2). The recent drilling and mapping program has confirmed the presence of a regional low-angle thrust plane (shear zone) controlling the Triple T gold mineralization over a strike length of up to 5 kilometers and possibly further on under cover rocks. The North Target area now measures 250 by 400 meters and remains open north and south as well as down-dip to the east (see Figures 3 & 4). With the confirmation that gold mineralization is expanding underneath the carbonate unit to the east (Upper Limestone), NV Gold is planning geophysical (Induced Polarization (IP)) investigations to reveal potentially larger erosion-protected targets along this promising structural gold-corridor.

Top 5 ASX Gold Stocks of 2024

Inflation and high interest rates continue to impact the mining sector in Australia, but near record gold prices are attracting a lot of attention at the start of the 2024.

At its first meeting for 2024, which was held on February 6, the Australian Reserve Bank held its interest rates steady at a 12 year high with a cash rate target of 4.35 percent and interest rates paid on exchange settlement balances at 4.25 percent. According to the central bank’s data the inflation rate was continuing to ease but was still high, sitting at 4.1 percent for the quarter ended in December.

In its statement the Reserve Bank indicated there were positive signs but the board remained uncertain of the overall economic outlook. The bank expects inflation to return to its target range of 2 percent to 3 percent in 2025.
