Corvus Gold Extends Mother Lode Deposit West, Drilling 70.1 metres @ 1.41 g/t Gold, and North, Drilling 33.5 metres @ 1.6 g/t Gold

 

 

 

 

 

Corvus Gold Inc. (TSX:KOR) (OTCQX:CORVF) announces it has received assay results from an additional eight drill holes from its 2017 Phase I drill program at its Mother Lode project in southern Nevada (Table 1). The latest results continue to delineate the extension of the Mother Lode deposit to the west (ML-17-028 with 70.1 m @ 1.41 g/t gold at a 0.1 g/t cutoff), and there appears to be early indications of a new deep zone below the historic pit zone.  Additionally, a new drill fence 50 metres to the north of the northern-most drilling has shown that the system continues to expand to the north-northwest of historic hole ML-338 (73.2 m @ 2.05 g/t gold).  It is believed that these results continue to grow the Mother Lode deposit, which is open to the north, west, east and at depth (Figure 1).

Western Extension and New Deep In-pit Zone

 

 

Assay results from holes ML-17-026 to ML-17-028, ML-17-030 and ML-17-032 provide further information for Resource estimation work while extending mineralization to the west and at depth in the historic open pit area of the deposit, with ML-17-28 returning 51.8 m @ 1.86 g/t gold.  Importantly, the new deeper holes drilled have intersected a new deep zone of moderate grade mineralization (“Deep In-Pit Zone”) that is open at depth and could be extensive throughout the deposit to the north and at depth (ML-17-026 with 24.4 m @ 0.93 g/t gold, ML-17-32 with 12.2 m @ 0.81 g/t gold & ML-17-30 with 12.2 m @ 0.81 g/t gold).     

 

 

North Expansion

 

 

Assay results from two holes drilled to the north of the prior northern-most fence of holes, which included ML-17-003 with 66.3 m @ 1.24 g/t gold, reported NR-17-19, Dec. 12, 2017, ML-17-017 with 35.1 m @ 1.97 g/t gold reported NR-18-01, Jan. 10, 2018 and historic hole ML-338 with 73.2 m @ 2.05 g/t gold, returned 33.5 m @ 1.60 g/t gold in ML-17-31 and 12.2 m @ 2.31 g/t gold in ML-17-33. Corvus believes that these results are a strong indication that the deposit remains open to the north and north northwest.  Drilling will continue to step out to the north and determine the extent of this relatively flat-lying high-grade zone, which is currently open for expansion.

 

 

Jeff Pontius, President and CEO of Corvus states, “The continued growth on all fronts of this new Nevada gold discovery is encouraging, and adds confidence and size to the deposit with every hole.  The growth potential to the north is particularly intriguing, as the mineralization has flattened with no sign of weakening.  In addition, as we get into the heart of the system, the new Deep In-Pit Zone looks to have potential to grow in size and grade to the north.  The results for the Mother Lode exploration have exceeded our initial expectations and we believe they bode well for our maiden resource estimate that is planned for the middle of this year.”
