Revival Gold Completes Drill Program and Provides Exploration Update

TORONTO, Nov. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reviva l Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG, OTCQX: RVLGF) (“Revival Gold” or the “Company”), announces the successful conclusion of its 2022 drill program at the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project (“Beartrack-Arnett”) located in Idaho, USA. During the year, Revival Gold completed 22 core holes for a total of about 5,500 meters .

Results from the first two core holes for this year’s program released in September (BT22-241D and BT22-242D) confirmed the continuity of potentially underground mineable grades within a broad zone of gold mineralization in the Joss target area and further emphasized the depth and scope of mineralization at Beartrack-Arnett. Joss extends over a strike of 1,000 meters, has now been drilled to a depth of over 500 meters and is open in all directions. Intercepts for the 20 core holes completed at Joss to-date average 7.7 g/t gold over 5.5 meters drilled width within a broader zone of 2.8 g/t gold over 45.5 meters drilled width (true widths are estimated to be 30% to 50% of drilled widths). See Revival Gold press releases dated December 2 nd , 2021, September 12 th , 2022, and September 22 nd , 2022, for details.

Two additional core holes were completed this year for a total of four core holes and 2,600 meters on the main Beartrack-Arnett trend of mineralization , one in the South Pit target area (BT22-243D) and one additional hole in the Joss target area (BT22-244D). Hole BT22-243D is intended to extend high-grade mineralization at the southern end of the South Pit and hole BT22-244D is intended to expand on high-grade intervals from the 2018 drilling program. Assay results are expected over the next six weeks.

In the Haidee target area , Revival Gold completed 18 infill and expansion core holes for 2,900 meters in the near surface, oxide material of this satellite deposit. These holes are intended to upgrade Inferred Resources to Indicated Resources and extend the current Mineral Resource to the southwest, or down-dip, direction. Mineralization at Haidee remains open in all directions. Assay results are expected over the course of the next three months.

Revival Gold’s exploration activities will now turn to the review and interpretation of drilling results, updating the Beartrack-Arnett geological and mineral resource models in support of the Company’s planned 2023 first phase heap leach Preliminary Feasibility Study (“PFS”), and preparation of plans for future drilling .

“Revival Gold’s exploration team is to be commended for wrapping up another safe and productive drilling campaign at Beartrack-Arnett this year with exciting results from Joss and the completion of all planned drilling in the Haidee area to support next year’s PFS. Further assay results are expected later this month and into the new year, said Hugh Agro, Revival Gold’s President & CEO. We look forward to building on 2022’s great results in the drilling campaigns to come”, Agro added.

QA/QC Program

Quality Assurance/Quality Control consists of the regular insertion of certified reference materials, duplicate samples, and blanks into the sample stream. Check samples are submitted to an umpire laboratory at the end of the drilling program. Sample results are analyzed immediately upon receipt and all discrepancies are investigated. Samples are submitted to the ALS Geochemistry sample preparation facility in Twin Falls, Idaho. Gold analyses are performed at the ALS Geochemistry laboratory in Reno, Nevada or Vancouver, British Columbia, and multi-element geochemical analyses are completed at the ALS Minerals laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia. ALS Minerals is an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited lab.

Gold assays are determined on samples consisting of half drill core by fire assay and AAS on a 30-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA23) for Beartrack, and Fire Assay and AAS on a 50-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA24) for Arnett. For shallow holes, targeting leachable mineralization, gold content is also determined by cyanide leach with an AAS finish on a nominal 30-gram sample weight (Au-AA13). Multi element geochemical analyses are completed on selected drill holes using the ME-MS 61M method.
