Nevada Sunrise Reports 13.7 Metres of 6.03 g/t Gold at Kinsley Mountain

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2012) - Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp., (TSX VENTURE:NEV) ("Nevada Sunrise" or the "Company") has received further drilling results from Pilot Gold Inc. ("Pilot Gold") and is pleased to report that step-out drilling on the western flank of the Kinsley Mountain Project in northeast Nevada has returned up to 6.03 grams/tonne gold over 13.7 metres, 600 metres northwest of the nearest historical pit. Recent drilling in the Western Flank area has identified a north-trending zone of higher-grade mineralization that is at least 400 metres by 100 metres and remains open in all directions.

Pilot Gold is nearing the end of the 2012 drill program at Kinsley; however, drilling on in the Western Flank area on the west side of the Kinsley Range has been expanded with additional holes targeting higher-grade intercepts. Additional assays are pending.

"Pilot's Gold's work at Kinsley Mountain continues to deliver impressive intercepts of gold mineralization," said William Henderson, President and CEO of Nevada Sunrise. "The potential of the property is growing and we are pleased to be a part of this exciting process."


Western Flank of Kinsley Range: Reverse Circulation drilling in an area approximately 600 metres northwest of the nearest historical pit and 120 metres north of PK057 (2.30 grams/tonne gold over 19.8 metres; see the Company's news release dated August 27, 2012) returned:

  • 6.03 grams/tonne gold over 13.7 metres in PK061, including 15.2 grams/tonne over 4.6 metres and 6.25 grams/tonne over 1.5 metres;
  • 3.91 grams/tonne gold over 3.0 metres in PK063;
  • 1.52 grams/tonne gold over 6.1 metres in PK058.

Kinsley Mountain is a sediment-hosted gold system and hosts a past-producing open-pit mine. Stratigraphic and structural controls are similar to those at nearby Long Canyon and Bald Mountain. Pilot Gold is operating exploration at the project with the same technical and management team that advanced the Long Canyon project as Fronteer Gold, acquired by Newmont Mining Corporation in March 2011. Nevada Sunrise is Pilot Gold's 49% joint venture partner on Kinsley Mountain. Pilot Gold is currently earning up to 65% of the project from its present 51% ownership.

All true widths are 30 per cent to 100 per cent of reported widths unless otherwise stated. All intervals of no sampling have been assigned zero grade for the purposes of compositing. A comprehensive table of drill results to date, including new and non-reportable intercepts, and a map of the Kinsley Mountain can be viewed on Nevada Sunrise's website at: under: "Exploration - Kinsley Mountain".

The technical information in this news release is based upon information provided by Nevada Sunrise's joint venture partner, Pilot Gold. The technical information has been prepared under the supervision of Moira Smith, P.Geo., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101, who is Chief Geologist of Pilot Gold, and independent of Nevada Sunrise.

Pilot Gold reports that drill core composites were calculated using a cut-off of 0.30 grams/tonne. Drill intersections are reported as drilled thicknesses. True widths of the mineralized intervals are interpreted to be between 30-100% of the reported lengths. Drill samples were assayed by ALS Chemex (ISO9001:2000) in Reno, Nevada for gold by Fire Assay of a 30 gram (1 assay ton) charge with an AA finish, or if over 5.0 grams/tonne were re-assayed and completed with a gravimetric finish. For these samples, the gravimetric data were utilized in calculating gold intersections. QA/QC included the insertion and continual monitoring of numerous standards and blanks into the sample stream, and the collection of duplicate samples at random intervals within each batch. Selected holes are also analyzed for a 51-element geochemical suite by ICP-MS.
