VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 19, 2020 / NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTC PINK:NVGLF) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it is mobilizing its technical team to its 100% owned Sandy Gold Project, located within the Walker Lane, Lyon County, Nevada, USA. NV Gold's first drill program at Sandy is expected to commence this week and will encompass up to 1,500 m in up to 10 reverse circulation ("RC") drill holes.
"NV Gold has an extremely busy Fall exploration season with three drill programs planned, commencing initially with our first drill program at the Sandy Gold Project, which last saw drilling in the early 1990s," commented Peter A. Ball, President and CEO of NV Gold. "In addition, we anticipate receiving our drill permit in the next week for our planned drill program in November at our Slumber Gold Project in Humboldt County, Nevada, which is held under a lease under which the Company's subsidiary holds a 100% interest in Slumber. At the optioned Exodus Gold Project in BC, Canada, in which we can earn up to an 85% interest, senior geological consultants from Goldspot Discoveries Corp. recently completed a property visit. We are now pushing forward to complete an updated geological model, and anticipate soil and trenching assays to be released upon final receipt and review, all in preparation for a diamond drill program in November."
At the Sandy Gold Project, the results from the recently completed property-wide geophysical program, in combination with a site visit by our technical team, was very valuable in assisting and prioritizing RC drill targets to test this low-sulphidation epithermal gold system. NV Gold has secured DrillRite LLC, an experienced and highly regarded exploration drill contractor based in Elko, Nevada, to carry out its drilling program at Sandy.
