NevGold Corp. (TSX-V:NAU) (OTCQB:NAUFF) (Frankfurt:5E50) is pleased to announce the initial portion of assays from the Company’s first drill hole (CV22-001) at the Cadillac Valley target area at its Limousine Butte Project, Nevada located on the southern part of the Carlin Trend. Further assays from the Company’s inaugural 10,000 meter drill program are expected continuously from both the Resurrection Ridge and Cadillac Valley target areas (Figure 4) for the remainder of the first half of 2022.
NevGold CEO, Brandon Bonifacio, comments: “Building on the initial assays from our Resurrection Ridge target area released on February 8, the first hole at Cadillac Valley has drilled an important, highly prospective target zone at Limousine Butte. It is very exciting to see another thick intercept of multi-gram oxide gold material at a location that is over 2 km from Resurrection Ridge. We believe that the mineralized horizon may extend between these two areas of the project, and it is very promising to see results aligning with our geological model of the district. We are excited about the remaining assays from this first hole at Cadillac Valley and from some of the subsequent holes that we have sent to the lab. Assays from further holes will be continuously released over the first half of 2022.”
NevGold Chief Geologist, Derick Unger, comments: “We are very encouraged by this initial data from Cadillac Valley, which is another key target area at our district-scale Limousine Butte project. Having results align with our geological model has improved our understanding of the Project and opened up a number of other prospective target areas within the large, consolidated 67 square kilometer land package. We eagerly await the remaining part of CV22-001 from Cadillac Valley which is expected shortly. With two drill rigs on site actively drilling both Resurrection Ridge and Cadillac Valley, we expect many more drill results as we advance towards completing a near-surface oxide gold mineral resource estimate.”
