NV Gold Completed Induced Polarization (IP) Survey at Sandy; Chargeability and Resistivity Targets Identified
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 28, 2021 / NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF) (“NV Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has completed its IP Survey at its 100% owned Sandy Gold Project (“Sandy”), located within the Walker Lane, Lyon County, Nevada, USA. The Company’s objective was to delineate sulfide concentrations via the chargeability and lithologies / alteration via the resistivity (see Figure 1). The IP Survey results have led to the Company identifying various untested, potentially altered, and mineralized new targets to be drill-tested 1st Q of 2022.

Previously announced Highlights
- The Company completed its expanded program of 17 RC drill holes totaling 3,811 m (12,505 ft) in 1st Q of 2021.
- The “maiden” RC (Reverse Circulation) drilling has encountered a large epithermal gold system. The alteration footprint at the surface has a strike length of 2.4 kilometers and a width of half a kilometer.
- A surface rock chip sampling program completed at the Sandy Gold Project yielded positive gold values from anomalous to high grade. Of note, three samples yielded 11.3 g/t Au and 11.6 g/t Ag, 11.5 g/t Au and 14.1 g/t Ag, and 18.1 g/t Au and 43.2 g/t Ag.
- All seventeen RC holes drilled intercepted anomalous gold and strong trace element geochemistry. Twelve holes were above a threshold of >3 meters @ >0.1 g/t Au. The best intercept was 22.9 meters @ 0.65 g/t Au from 29 meters to 51.9 meters (including 6.1 meters of 1.58 g/t Au at 38.1 meters) in SD-2 (see to Figure 1-3).
- A Leapfrog model including all surface geochemistry and drill assays was completed 2nd Q of 2021; the model showed open, NW-plunging gold mineralization and trace-element geochemistry towards the newly “IP-interpreted” target zones (refer to press release June 23rd, 2021).
CONCLUSIONS AND NEXT STEPS
The IP survey delineates lithologies, structures and alteration over two specific areas within the Sandy property. Numerous areas of sulfide concentration are also interpreted, which do not exhibit strong lithologic controls, but locations of hydrothermal alteration proximal to feeder structures. Vein responses are noted on Lines 4 through 6, and 18 and 19 along a prominent structural zone traversing the southwest and northeast borders of both survey blocks. This zone also correlates with moderate to high chargeability anomalies (see Figure 2 & 3). A low resistivity feeder to the silica cap on Line 18 is also interpreted (see Figure 4). Drill testing of the various targets will be conducted 1st Q of 2022 following a complete technical review to include integration of the IP results with all other of the property data.
“Previously stated conclusions of Leapfrog modeling combined with the recent results and interpretations of the Induced Polarization (IP) Survey strongly support the presence of a mineralized epithermal gold system at Sandy! The 2021 “maiden” RC (reverse circulation) drilling program did not intersect any of the new targets, neither underneath the Southwestern Clay Cap nor below the Northeastern Silica Cap. However, given the fact that most of our RC holes returned “system-indicating” gold values suggests strong potential for higher grade gold when targeting the overlapping resistor and chargeability anomalies. Having chargeability numbers up to 47 msec is very indicative for elevated sulfide occurrences which could represent a sulfide halo adjacent to mineralized quartz-veins. I am excited to evaluate the new anomalies and target interpretations of the Southwest Clay Cap and Northeast Silica Cap in our 2nd Phase drilling campaign in 1st Q of 2022″, stated Thomas Klein, VP Exploration, NV Gold.

SD-2 which returned 22.9 meters @ 0.65 g/t Au starting at 29 meters appears to be drilled distal to the main chargeability and resistivity anomalies. (Note that drill holes are located in between IP Line 5 & 6 (refer to Figure 1)).

SD-2 which returned 22.9 meters @ 0.65 g/t Au starting at 29 meters appears to be drilled distal to the main chargeability and resistivity anomalies. (Note that drill holes are located in between IP Line 5 & 6 (refer to Figure 1)).
