VANCOUVER, BC , Jan. 11, 2021 /CNW/ - Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp. ("Nevada Sunrise", or the " Company ") (TSXV: NEV) is pleased to report that its joint venture partner, New Placer Dome Gold Corp. (" New Placer Dome ") has provided assay results for the initial nine (9) reverse circulation ("RC") drill holes completed during 2020 at the Kinsley Mountain Gold Project ("Kinsley Mountain") located near Wendover, Nevada . Nevada Sunrise holds a 20.01% interest in the Kinsley Mountain joint venture, with New Placer Dome, as operator, holding a 79.99% interest.

The recently completed 2020 Kinsley Mountain RC and diamond drill campaign comprised forty-nine (49) drill holes totaling 17,970 metres (39 RC holes for 13,610 metres, and 10 diamond drill holes for 4,360 metres). A total of five (5) target areas were tested during the 2020 drill program including the: Western Flank Zone, Secret Spot, Shale Saddle, KNW Fault, and Main Pit North areas. Drill hole locations were selected to test extensions to existing resource areas as well as undrilled, high-conviction targets. Assay results from the remaining 40 holes are still pending.

Highlights of the initial nine RC drill holes are listed below, and in Table 1 following:

  • 2.63 g/t Au (sulphide) over 38.10 metres; including 10.22 grams/tonne gold (g/t Au) (sulphide) over 6.10 metres in KMR20-017;
  • 3.38 g/t Au (oxide) over 21.34 metres; including 5.78 g/t Au over 6.10 metres in KMR20-016;
  • 5.15 g/t Au (oxide) over 10.67 metres in KMR20-004 ;
  • 4.83 g/t Au (sulphide) over 6.10 metres and 1.74 g/t Au (sulphide) over 7.62 metres in KMR20-008; and 1.15 g/t Au (sulphide) over 6.10 metres in KMR20-007;
  • 1.19 g/t Au (oxide) over 16.76 metres in KMR20-005 ; and 0.51 g/t Au (oxide) over 18.29 metres in KMR20-006 .

"These initial results from the 2020 drilling program show that the area of high-grade gold mineralization at Kinsley Mountain continues to grow," said Warren Stanyer , President & CEO of the Company. "We congratulate New Placer Dome on completing their inaugural drilling program on the near surface oxide and deep high-grade sulphide environments at Kinsley, and look forward to receiving more assay results in the weeks to come."

Methodology and QA/QC
The analytical work reported on herein was performed by ALS Global ("ALS") in Vancouver, Canada . ALS is an ISO-IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015 accredited geoanalytical laboratory and is independent of New Placer Dome, Nevada Sunrise and the respective Qualified Persons for each company. RC drill samples were subject to crushing at a minimum of 70% passing 2 mm, followed by pulverizing of a 250-gram split to 85% passing 75 microns. Gold determination was via standard 30-gram fire-assay (FA) analysis with atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish, in addition to 51-element ICP-MS geochemistry. Samples returning greater than 10 g/t Au are subject to gravimetric finish. Gold values returning greater than 0.1 g/t Au are also subject to leach analysis where the sample is treated with a 0.25% NaCN solution and rolled for an hour. An aliquot of the final leach solution is then centrifuged and analyzed by AAS.

As operator at Kinsley Mountain, New Placer Dome follows industry standard procedures for the work carried out the Project, with a quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program. Blank, duplicate and standard samples were inserted into the sample sequence sent to the laboratory for analysis. New Placer Dome detected no significant QA/QC issues during review of the data. Nevada Sunrise is not aware of any drilling, sampling, recovery or other factors that could materially affect the accuracy or reliability of the data referred to herein.
