Nevada Sunrise Announces Drilling Program of 20,000 Meters Begins at Kinsley Mountain, Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 16, 2013) - Nevada Sunrise Gold Corporation ("Nevada Sunrise") (TSX VENTURE:NEV) announced today that it has been informed that Pilot Gold Inc. ("Pilot Gold") has commenced drilling at the Kinsley Mountain Project, Nevada ("Kinsley Mountain"). The drilling program, planned for 20,000 metres, is follow-up to the 2012 drilling and exploration campaign that defined and expanded gold mineralization over a 2.2 kilometre-long trend.

Drill highlights from the 2012 program include:

  • 6.03 g/t gold over 13.7 metres in hole PK061, including 15.18 g/t gold over 4.6 metres;
  • 5.48 g/t gold over 20.4 metres in hole PK014C, including 16.43 g/t gold over 5.5 metres; and
  • 2.30 g/t gold over 19.8 metres in hole PK057.

(For a table of Kinsley Mountain drill results from 2011-2012, including non-reportable intercepts, please see Nevada Sunrise's website under "Projects - Kinsley Mountain".)

The exploration program is designed to extend and further define Kinsley Mountain's high-grade and bulk-tonnage mineralization with an aggressive 20,000 metres of core and RC drilling as well as additional geophysical, engineering, metallurgical surveys, and district wide exploration.

Kinsley Mountain exhibits near-surface mineralization similar to other Carlin-style, sediment hosted gold systems. Gold mineralization is largely oxidized, and hosted in strataform zones within Cambrian-Ordovician shelf carbonates, collapse breccias, and specific high and low angle structures. Pilot Gold has also drilled high grade sulfide mineralization. In certain locations, such as the West Flank target, the Company has drilled through this sulphide material and back into fully oxidized mineralization.

In 2012, Pilot Gold completed a successful 12,000-metre infill and step-out drill program that defined and expanded upon the mineralized zones identified by previous operators. In conjunction with drilling, a comprehensive regional exploration effort generated new targets up to seven kilometres to the north of the historic open pits. A new mineralized zone was intersected in drilling (Candland Canyon) and the Western Flank Zone has been expanded to cover an area 600 metres by 100 metres. A three-dimensional model of geology and mineralization was created in order to aid in the selection of new, high-grade drill targets by extrapolating controls outward from the pits.

About Kinsley Mountain

Kinsley Mountain is located in Elko County, Nevada, about 83 kilometers (51 miles) south of the town of Wendover. Kinsley Mountain lies within a seven-mile long, north-northeast trending ridge at the northern extension of the Antelope Range, and consists of 380 contiguous claims totaling 3,096 hectares (7,650 acres). Historical open-pit mining operations by Alta Gold Company extracted 138,151 ounces of gold from the property from 1994 to 1999 until mining operations ceased. Kinsley Mountain saw little-to-no exploration subsequent to the mining operations until Animas Resources Ltd. ("Animas") entered into an option agreement with Nevada Sunrise and carried out exploration in 2010. Pilot Gold purchased the right to option Kinsley Mountain from Animas in September 2011, and since that time has earned a 65% interest in Kinsley Mountain by carrying out programs of geochemical sampling, geological mapping, and 13,134 meters (43,080 feet) of drilling.
