Vancouver, British Columbia – NV Gold Corporation (TSX.V: NVX; OTC Pink: NVGLF) (“NV Gold” or the “Company”) has begun its previously announced reverse-circulation, rotary drill program on the Company’s 100% owned Frazier Dome gold project, located in Nye County, Nevada. The 8-10 hole 1,500+ m drill program is estimated at a cost of $200,000 USD, and should be completed by the end of September.
Drilling will focus on targets associated with high-angle shear zones that have yielded rock-chip values in excess of 5g Au per ton. The targets are proximal to wide shear zones in Tertiary volcanics, which unconformably overlay the Paleozoic sedimentary rocks of the area.
The Frazier Dome property is located in the Walker Lane mineralized zone approximately 8 kilometers north of Tonopah in Nye County.
Exploration activities at the Frazier Dome Gold project are being conducted under the supervision of Dr. Marcus Johnston, Exploration Manager for NV Gold. 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.
