Paramount Reports Positive Gold Intercepts From First Drill Program at Frost Project

 

 

 

 

 

Drill holes intersect gold grades of up to 14.4 g/t Au

 

 

Paramount Gold Nevada Corp. (NYSE American: PZG) announced positive results from its first drill program at its Frost project located within trucking distance of the proposed Grassy Mountain Mine operation.

 

“We are pleased with the results of this initial program. We have encountered a robust gold system which could have the potential to generate significant tonnage of economic material,” said Glen Van Treek, Paramount’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “There is much more drilling to be done but these results confirm the presence of a gold system as indicated by our surface work.”

 

A total of 13 reverse circulation drill holes totaling 9,010 feet were completed to test targets based upon surface geology and sampling, along with ground and helicopter borne geophysical surveys. The drill plan was also designed to locate and test historical intercepts from drilling in the 1990’s which had significant gold values, however no records remain of the precise locations of the historic holes.

 

Several drill holes intersected significant gold grades over interesting intervals including a 5-foot sample with a gold grade of 14.4 g/t and shallow intercepts up to 70 feet averaging 1.04 g/t.

F21-13   360   380   20   4.85   9.5
including   365   370   5   14.40   12.7

 

The high-grade intercepts are related to silicified structures that have been interpreted to have near vertical dips. Specifically, intercepts in holes 2, 3 and 13 are interpreted to be the same vertical structure where the gold grade is increasing with depth as evidenced from the 20-feet grading 2.48 g/t of gold at 170-foot depth, and 4.85 g/t of gold at a depth of 370 feet. See figure 1 which illustrates the intercepts along with the CSAMT line.

 

The initial drill program has provided Paramount with an increased understanding of the gold distribution. The orientation of the main mineralized zone and the increase in gold grade with depth will be key factors for defining a second, follow-up drilling phase. 3D modeling of the drilling, assays and geologic interpretation are ongoing. Results will be used for targeting a wider or more disseminated zone of mineralized material that can be mined and trucked to the proposed Grassy Mountain operation thus increasing the project’s overall mine life.

 

Based upon similar low sulfidation epithermal deposits around the world and Paramount’s experience with the Grassy Mountain and Sleeper projects, it is expected that the Frost veins will pinch and swell, changing in width dramatically along strike or at depth. The Company is pursuing evidence that these veins could be the lateral extension of a much larger mineralized zone.

About Paramount Gold Nevada Corp.

 

Paramount Gold Nevada Corp. is a U.S. based precious metals exploration and development company. Paramount’s strategy is to create shareholder value through exploring and developing its mineral properties and to realize this value for its shareholders in three ways: by selling its assets to established producers; entering joint ventures with producers for construction and operation; or constructing and operating mines for its own account.

 

Paramount holds a 100% interest in four gold projects: Grassy Mountain; Frost; Sleeper and Bald Peak.

 

The Grassy Mountain Gold Project consists of approximately 8,200 acres located on private and BLM land in Malheur County, Oregon. The Grassy Mountain Gold Project contains a gold-silver deposit (100% located on private land) for which results of a positive Feasibility Study have been released and key permitting milestones accomplished.

 

Frost is comprised of 84 unpatented lode claims covering approximately 1,730 acres located 12 miles southwest of the Company’s proposed high-grade, underground Grassy Mountain gold mine in Malheur County, Oregon.

 

The Sleeper Gold Project is located in Northern Nevada, the world’s premier mining jurisdiction. The Sleeper Gold Project is host to a large gold deposit (over 4 million ounces of mineralized material) and the Company has completed and released a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment. With higher gold prices, Paramount has begun work to update and improve the economics of the Sleeper project and search for additional high-grade deposits similar to the former producer.

 

The newly acquired Bald Peak Project in Nevada, consists of approximately 2,260 acres. Detailed planning and U.S. Forest Service permitting of a first phase drill program at Bald Peak, is underway.

 

NI 43-101 Disclosure

 

Exploration activities at Frost are conducted by Calico Resources USA Corp./Paramount Gold Nevada Corp. personnel under the supervision of Michael McGinnis (CPG 10914) Project Manager and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101, who has reviewed and approved this release. A quality control/quality assurance protocol was employed for the drill program; including blank, duplicate and reference standards in every batch of assays.
