VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 27, 2020 / NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has received all necessary drill approvals for its 2020 reverse circulation drill campaign at its 100% controlled Slumber Gold Project ("Slumber") located approximately 50 miles northwest of Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA. NV Gold's 2020 drill program, anticipated to commence in early November, will encompass up to 2,500 meters in up to 10 reverse circulation ("RC") drill holes.
"Targets generated at Slumber by recent CSAMT geophysical surveys are exceptional. Our technical team, which includes Dr. Quinton Hennigh and Dr. Odin Christensen, believes the Slumber Gold Project may potentially host a buried high grade gold system at depth beneath shallowly drilled areas tested last year," commented Peter A. Ball, President and CEO of NV Gold. "In addition to planned drilling at Slumber, NV Gold's Sandy Gold Project drill campaign is now underway in western Nevada, and work at the Exodus Gold Project in British Columbia continues to advance the project to drill readiness. This fall season is quickly shaping up to be NV Gold's busiest and most exciting exploration period in many years."
For additional information on the Slumber Gold Project, which was leased in 2019, please refer to NV Gold's press release, dated September 25th, 2020. In addition, see below for a recap of the drill targets generated from the recent controlled source audio-magnetotelluric ("CSAMT") geophysical survey.
Interpretation of the recent CSAMT data highlighted several high-angle high-resistivity zones within a north-northeast-oriented focus area generally coincident with the area of reduced magnetic response. Such high-resistivity zones, surrounded by zones of greater conductivity, are a key feature characteristic of epithermal veins. These relationships are illustrated on one representative geophysical cross-section in Figure 1. Similar features are present on five of the six CSAMT lines.
Figure 1. Slumber Project Area CSAMT Line 4 viewed looking northeast. Cooler colors image rock masses with greater resistivity. The image has been interpreted to show several high-angle resistive zones, surrounded by more conductive rock. The blue resistive cap corresponds to silicified outcrops.
When compared to past drilling, the new model suggests that the drilling, primarily targeted by surface geologic features, and did not test deep enough as illustrated in Figure 2.

The traces of several historic drill holes are shown and indicates that the holes were not drilled deep enough to intersect possible zones of high-angle veining and mineralization.
