New Found Gold Corp.  (TSX-V: NFG) (OTC: NFGFF) is pleased to announce assay results from an additional ten holes drilled at the Keats Zone. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 200,000m diamond drill program at its 100%-owned Queensway Project located on the Trans-Canada Highway 15 km west of Gander, Newfoundland.

 

Highlights

 

  • Highlights include:

 

Hole No. From (m) To (m) Interval (m)* Au (g/t)
NFGC-20-74 44.00 46.00 2.00 32.27
And 49.15 70.50 21.35 3.36
And 81.70 85.75 4.05 45.59
NFGC-21-85 108.45 111.40 2.95 49.41
NFGC-21-119 176.20 183.15 6.95 15.57
NFGC-21-122 8.10 10.00 1.90 24.75
And 34.70 49.60 14.90 69.15
Incl 34.70 43.85 9.15 106.46
*Note that the host structures are interpreted to be steeply dipping and true widths are estimated to be 70% to 80% of reported intervals. Intervals are calculated at a 1 g/t Au cut-off grade; grades have not been capped in the averaging.
  • Multiple intervals encountered in drill holes NFGC-21-74 and NFGC-21-122 provide further confirmation of high-grade, near surface gold mineralization at the north end of Keats. These results include 45.6g/t Au over 4.05m in hole NFGC-21-74 and 69.2g/t Au over 14.9m in hole NFGC-21-122 (Figure 1).
  • The intervals of 49.4 g/t Au over 2.95m in drill hole NFGC-21-85 and 15.6 g/t Au over 6.95m NFGC 21-119 provide further confirmation of the continuity of the Keats high grade zone in the down-plunge direction (Figure 1).

 

Greg Matheson, P.Geo., COO of New Found, stated: “Similar to the results the Company disclosed on March 29, 2021, these results continue to infill between our deepest interval disclosed to date (61.8 g/t Au over 13.65m in NFGC-21-118) and the near-surface, high-grade results up-plunge (see Figure 1). Current drilling at Keats is focused on extending the high-grade zone down plunge, providing further definition of the near surface, high-grade mineralization, and testing additional zones of high-grade mineralization including in footwall veining.

Sampling, Sub-sampling and Laboratory

True widths of the intercepts reported in this press release have yet to be determined but are estimated to be 70% to 80% of reported core lengths. Assays are uncut, and calculated intervals are reported over a minimum length of 2 meters using a lower cut-off of 1.0 g/t Au. All HQ split core assays reported were obtained by either complete sample metallic screen/fire assay or standard 30-gram fire-assaying with ICP finish at ALS Minerals in Vancouver, British Columbia, or by entire sample screened metallic screen fire assay at Eastern Analytical in Springdale, Newfoundland. The complete sample metallic screen assay method is selected by the geologist when samples contain coarse gold or any samples displaying gold initial fire assay values greater than 1.0 g/t Au. Drill program design, Quality Assurance/Quality Control and interpretation of results is performed by qualified persons employing a Quality Assurance/Quality Control program consistent with National Instrument 43-101 and industry best practices. Standards and blanks are included with every 20 samples for Quality Assurance/Quality Control purposes by the Company as well as the lab. Approximately 5% of sample pulps are sent to secondary laboratories for check assays.
