Nevada Sunrise Defines Drill Targets at Coronado VMS Project in Nevada

VANCOUVER, BC , Oct. 8, 2020 /CNW/ - Nevada Sunrise Gold Corporation ("Nevada Sunrise" or the "Company") (TSXV: NEV) is pleased to announce that a geochemical sampling program at the Coronado VMS property ("Coronado", or the "Project") has detected a cluster of strong geochemical anomalies above the Coronado South geophysical conductor.

Highlights of the 2020 Coronado Geochemical Survey

In August 2020 , Nevada Sunrise collected 162 soil samples from a grid established across the  surface trace of the Coronado South conductor, which is an airborne electromagnetic anomaly defined by the Company's helicopter-borne 2018 geophysical survey (see Nevada Sunrise news release dated September 26, 2018 ). The soil samples were submitted to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Ancaster, Ontario ("Actlabs") for Spatiotemporal Geochemical Hydrocarbons ("SGH") analysis.

The 2020 SGH results showed a classic "segment nested halo" geochemical anomaly, which indicates a high probability of related volcanogenic massive sulphide ("VMS") mineralization 1 . Nevada Sunrise commissioned an additional analytical study from Actlabs to focus on the specific SGH hydrocarbon signatures predicted to be associated with copper mineralization and the result is shown in the picture below:

This initial soil survey program represents the Company's first test of the SGH process, a nano-geochemistry method developed by Actlabs, which has been reported to detect buried sulphide mineralization at depths up to 500 metres. The results from the 2020 SGH survey give confidence to the Company's interpretation of the geological setting at Coronado , and have been integrated into the target matrix for a future diamond drilling program.

About Coronado

Coronado currently consists of 133 located unpatented claims totaling approximately 2,748 acres (1,113 hectares) located in the Tobin and Sonoma Range of Pershing County, Nevada , approximately 48 kilometers (30 miles) southeast of Winnemucca . The Project lies over an interpreted trend adjacent to the historic Big Mike copper mine that lies within the Middle Pennsylvanian to Late Permian-age Havallah volcanic-sedimentary sequence. Big Mike produced from an open pit mine where high-grade copper was discovered in the 1960s, resulting in copper production into the 1970s.

The Havallah sequence in general and the Pumpernickel Formation in particular have received little attention for base metals exploration since the 1970s and have been virtually ignored by resource companies operating in Nevada who are focussed mainly on gold exploration. The lack of recognition of the VMS exploration model in conjunction with airborne electromagnetic surveying may be the key reasons why no new VMS discoveries have been made to date in Nevada .

Robert M. Allender, Jr. , CPG, RG, SME is the Company's designated Qualified Person for this news release within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101 ("N.I. 43-101") and has reviewed and approved the technical information contained herein. Readers are cautioned that some of the technical information described in this news release is historical in nature; however, the information is deemed credible and was produced by professional geologists of the eras discussed. Mineralization located on adjacent properties by historical exploration may not be present on Coronado .

Soil samples described in this news release were analyzed by the SGH method developed by Actlabs. Upon receipt, samples are air-dried and then sieved with the -80 mesh sieve fraction collected. From the collected pulp, compounds are separated by gas chromatography and detected by mass spectrometry at a reporting limit of one part per trillion.
