NevGold Intercepts 0.53 g/t Oxide Au over 74.7 Meters And Expands The Mineralized Footprint Over 100 Meters At Resurrection Ridge
NevGold Corp. (“NevGold” or the “Company”) (TSXV:NAU) (OTCQX:NAUFF) (Frankfurt:5E50) is pleased to announce further assays from the Company’s drill program at the Resurrection Ridge target area at its Limousine Butte Project, Nevada (the “Project”) located on the southern part of the Carlin Trend. Further assays from the Company’s inaugural 10,000 meter drill program at the Project are expected shortly.
- More Shallow Oxide Gold Mineralization Building the Path to a Near-Term Resource: Hole RR22-001 intercepted 0.53 g/t oxide Au over 74.7 meters, including 0.81 g/t oxide Au over 19.9 meters from the top of the mineralized zone; the hole is an important step-out from LB22-004 which intercepted 2.19 g/t oxide Au over 61.6 meters including 8.51 g/t oxide Au over 11.6 meters.(released on February 8, 2022). Additionally, LB21-005 expanded the mineralized footprint at depth with a hole located over 100 meters northeast of LB21-004.
- Large, Open Mineralized Footprint at Resurrection Ridge Continues to Grow: the current mineralized area at Resurrection Ridge now extends over 700 meters along strike and over 350meters laterally. There is also another +1.0 km of untested strike length to the northeast of LB21-005 (Figure 1), which will be a key focus of drilling at Resurrection Ridge to further expand the mineralized footprint.
- Near-Surface Mineralization Under Shallow Cover: mineralization at Resurrection Ridge starts at vertical depth below surface of approximately 20-60 meters.
- Highly Oxidized Mineralization: oxidized mineralization has been seen in all of the holes drilled to date by the Company at Limousine Butte.
NevGold CEO, Brandon Bonifacio, comments: “We are excited about the further positive results received from Resurrection Ridge, along with our recently released drill results from the Cadillac Valley target area. Resurrection Ridge continues to expand to the northeast with a currently defined area of over 700 meters along strike and over 350 meters laterally, and has all the signatures of a near-surface, oxide, heap-leach gold orebody. With the expansion of mineralization to the northeast, we are eager to continue step-out drilling as there is also another further 1.0 kilometers of untested strike length. We have significantly expanded the mineralized footprints at both Resurrection Ridge and Cadillac Valley in this drill program and these two target areas will form the basis of advancing Limousine Butte to a near-term resource estimate.”
NevGold VP Exploration, Derick Unger, comments: “This new drilling at Resurrection Ridge both expands the mineralized footprint and confirms our geologic model that mineralization continues to the northeast. We consider this area especially prospective because the outcrops appear to be older dolomites that have been faulted over the favorable Pilot Shale host-rock. No drilling has been completed under the dolomites because they serve as an impermeable cap that could conceal mineralization. Testing areas with potential for concealed mineralization is the key to unlocking more value at Limousine Butte and expanding the mineralized system with the objective of driving towards a multi-million ounce resource base.”

* Downhole thickness reported; true width varies depending on drill hole dip and is approximately 70 to90% of downhole thickness.
** Drill results from core holes LB21-001 to LB21-004 were released on February 8, 2022. Hole LB21-005 was drilled with core, hole RR22-001 was drilled using reverse–circulation (“RC”).

Sampling Methodology, Chain of Custody, Quality Control and Quality Assurance: All sampling was conducted under the supervision of the Company’s geologists and the chain of custody from the Project to the independent sample preparation facility, American Assay Labs in Sparks, NV, was continuously monitored. The samples were crushed, pulverized and sample pulps were analyzed using industry standard fire assay methods. A blank and certified reference material was inserted approximately every 20th sample, and field duplicates were collected and analyzed approximately every 20th sample. Data verification of the analytical results included a statistical analysis of the standards and blanks that must pass certain parameters for acceptance to ensure accurate and verifiable results.
