NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE U.S.
NV Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:NVX) ("NV Gold or "the Company") is pleased to announce it has engaged Boart Longyear of Elko, Nevada to carry out a reverse-circulation, rotary drill program on the Company's 100% owned Cook's Creek gold project located in Lander County, Nevada. The 6-8 hole 1,500 m drill program, estimated at a cost of USD$300,000, will commence immediately and should be completed by the end of December 2016.
Drilling will focus on targets associated with high-angle faults that have yielded values in excess of 2g Au per tonne. The targets are proximal to the intersection of these fault structures with the contact of Caetano volcaniclastics, which unconformably overlay the Paleozoic sedimentary rocks of the area.
The Cook's Creek property is located in northeastern Nevada approximately 16 kilometers west of Barrick's Pipeline Mine in Lander County.
NV Gold is a listed TSX Venture company (TSX-V "NVX") with its focus on generation of advanced projects and application of new geologic models to its extensive database of project files, recently acquired from Redstar Gold. The Company has a well-known management team with a proven track record in the Great Basin.
Exploration activities at the Cook's Creek Gold project are being conducted under the supervision of Dr. Jacob Margolis, P.Geo., a contract geologist of NV Gold who is a Qualified Person under NI 43-101. Assays will be performed by ALS Chemex (Reno, Nevada and Vancouver, BC, Canada). The data verification procedures and QA/QC procedures for the program will include inserting certified standards and blanks into the sample stream. Rig duplicates will also be collected.
On Behalf of the Board of Directors,
John E. Watson, President, CEO
