Reducing Rig Count

RENO, Nev., July 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NuLegacy Gold Corporation is pleased to provide a further update on its current drill program at the ~6 sq. km Rift Anticline target, part of its flagship 108 sq. km Red Hill exploration property in Nevada’s Cortez gold-trend. To view this news release with its graphics displayed please link to: https://nulegacygold.com/news/news-releases/2021-exploration-program-update/

Drilling: NuLegacy has now completed seven holes (RA21-01, 02, 03, 04, 06, 08 and 131) with core from holes RA21-01, 02 and 03 logged, split, and submitted for assaying between late May and the end of June and receipt of those results anticipated in mid-August. The results will be reported as soon as the Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) review is completed and have been fully interpreted and incorporated into our geological model.

https://nulegacygold.com/site/assets/files/6896/july_29-_2021_drillmap.jpg

Holes RA-04, 06, 08 and 13 have been completed to depths of 3,119 feet, 3,207 feet, 3,381 feet and 2,448 feet respectively, with the core currently being split, logged, and readied to submit for assaying as warranted. The following link provides examples of the alteration (both silicification and decalcification) found in this second set of holes:

Assaying: The backlog for gold assays and multi-element geochemical results which the mining industry is currently experiencing is delaying our ability to update our geological and geochemical interpretations model for the Rift Anticline target in order to improve vectoring and targeting for the next drill holes.

Consequently, having completed seven of the planned holes, NuLegacy has reduced the number of core rigs drilling at the Rift Anticline to allow time for the laboratory to catch up and provide the assay results, particularly the multi-element geochemical analyses that assist in vectoring, so that we can better determine the next stage of drilling. The remaining core rig has just commenced drilling hole RA-2021-10 as noted in the above linked map with a targeted drill depth of 3,940 feet.

Once the gold assay and multi-element geochemical results from the currently completed holes have been received, interpreted, and integrated into NuLegacy’s geologic/geochemical model we will determine the final set of holes to be drilled within the Rift Anticline in the 2021 drilling program.

Sampling Methodology, Chain of Custody, Quality Control and Quality Assurance: All sampling was conducted under the supervision of the Company’s project geologists and the chain of custody from the project to the sample preparation facility was continuously monitored. A blank or certified reference material was inserted approximately every 20th sample. The samples were delivered to American Assay Labs’ preparation facility in Sparks, NV.

On trend: NuLegacy Gold is focused on confirming high-grade Carlin-style gold deposits within the ~ 6 sq. km Rift Anticline target in the northwest corner of its flagship 108 sq. km (42 sq. mile) district scale Red Hill Property in the Cortez gold trend of Nevada. The Rift Anticline target is located on trend and adjacentI to the three, multi-million ounce Carlin-type gold deposits (the Pipeline, Cortez Hills and Goldrush deposits) which are ranked amongst the world’s thirty largest, lowest cost and politically safest gold mines and are three of Nevada Gold Mines’ most profitable mines.II

I The similarity and proximity of these deposits in the Cortez Trend including Goldrush are not necessarily indicative of the gold mineralization in NuLegacy’s Red Hill Property.

II As extracted from Barrick’s Q4-2013 and Q1-2014 reports. As reported by Barrick, the Goldrush resource contains 8,557,000 indicated ounces of gold within 25.78 million tonnes grading ~10.57 g/t and 1,650,000 inferred ounces within 5.6 million tonnes grading ~9.0 g/t.

1 Holes were not drilled in numerical sequence.

Dr. Roger Steininger, a Director of NuLegacy, is a Certified Professional Geologist (CPG 7417) and the qualified person as defined by NI 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, responsible for approving the scientific and technical information contained in this news release.

Aguila American Gold Acquires Lida Copper-Silver Project in Nevada

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 22, 2021) – Aguila American Gold Limited (TSXV: AGL) (OTCQB: AGLAF) (WKN: A2DR6E) ("Aguila"…

Share this article:

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 22, 2021) - Aguila American Gold Limited (TSXV: AGL) (OTCQB: AGLAF) (WKN: A2DR6E) ("Aguila" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has secured through staking 100% ownership of the Lida copper project, located in Esmeralda County, Nevada. The project was identified during an extensive and ongoing generative program targeting copper deposits within the most mining supportive jurisdictions of North America. Initial surface sampling and mapping has commenced to test this exciting new project.

Aguila is focused on copper and precious metal acquisition, exploration and development within the major mining belts of western North America. The Company continues to target under-explored areas, including the recently acquired Lida and Cora projects where post-mineralization cover masks areas of high geological prospectivity in the vicinity of major mines.

The Lida project lies in south-central Esmeralda County within the richly gold and copper endowed Walker Lane Mineral Belt. The project is secured by 33 granted BLM lode mining claims covering a total of 2.75 sq km, and is easily accessed by two wheel drive vehicles utilizing existing access.

The Walker Lane Mineral Belt is a broad northwest striking fault zone that trends for more than 500km through western Nevada and eastern California. It is famous as a host to numerous large copper, gold and silver deposits and mines including Round Mountain, Comstock Lode, Northumberland, Goldfield, Tonopah, Pumpkin Hollow, New York Canyon and Silicon. Almost all discoveries within the Walker Lane belt have been made in outcrop, providing an exceptional opportunity for new deposits to be discovered under shallow cover.

Key Points

  • The Lida copper project lies within the Walker Lane Mineral Belt of Nevada, one of the richest mining districts in North America for gold, copper and silver.
  • Nevada was ranked as the top mining jurisdiction globally for mining investment in the 2020 Fraser Institute Annual Survey of Mining Companies.
  • Lida was prioritised as a target by Aguila due to the association of widespread surface copper mineralization with a discrete magnetic high. This signature is similar to most major mineralization systems within the Walker Lane belt.
  • Widespread copper oxide mineralization within shale and quartzite of the Campito Formation is reported in historical exploration records. The Campito Formation overlies the Deep Spring Formation and Reed Dolomite which are comprised of prospective limestone, dolomite and quartzite.
  • Recent site visits by Aguila have demonstrated that many of the 100's of prospecting pits across an area of 2km x 2km expose extensive oxide copper within fault structures and quartzite. The area of prospecting pits is constrained to the immediate north, south and east of Lida by shallow cover.
  • The most recent exploration documented at Lida was by Conoco Inc in the 1970s, who identified a large IP anomaly, covering 2km by 500m, underneath the copper mineralised area. Shallow drilling failed to test the target or penetrate the Campito Formation to more prospective carbonate host rocks.
  • The positive association between structurally controlled copper oxide mineralization, propylitic alteration, copper-mineralized breccia pipes, and the regional magnetic high with no modern exploration defines a high-priority copper target. The largely impermeable Campito Formation may overlie a pyrite rich (chargeable), shallow buried porphyry copper-molybdenum system.
  • Aguila will immediately commence field activities with mapping and sampling followed by a detailed magnetic survey.
  • Aguila continues to progress its project generation and acquisition strategy for copper and precious metals in highly prospective mineral belts. The rapidly growing demand for copper due to the accelerating uptake of electric vehicles and the supporting infrastructure, aligned with the growing uncertainty of sustainable ethical supply, makes North American targets a high priority.

"The newly staked Lida project represents another exciting step for Aguila into copper exploration in the Western US," said Mark Saxon, CEO of Aguila American Gold Limited. "Lida caught our eye immediately due to the abundance of surface copper oxide mineralization within a small area of outcrop surrounded by thin post-mineralization cover. The association with a magnetic high in the Walker Lane Mineral Belt is a consistent signature with major porphyry and epithermal systems. Major mining companies exploring north and south highlights the pedigree of the terrane.

The timing could not be better, as secure global copper supplies are tightening and price is rising, coinciding with strong demand growth as a result of a global infrastructure, electrification and renewable energy boom. We look forward to applying modern exploration techniques to this under explored district."

The Lida copper project lies in Esmeralda County, Nevada, approximately 28km southwest of Goldfield within the highly productive Walker Lane Mineral Belt. Walker Lane is a 500km long continental scale structural zone which is host to numerous world class gold and copper deposits and mining districts including Goldfield1 (4.7 Mt @ 28 g/t Au), Yerrington2 (162 Mt @ 0.54% Cu), Pumpkin Hollow3 (553 Mt @ 0.45% Cu), Comstock (16.3 Moz Au eq.) and Rio Tinto's New York Canyon (142 Mt @ 0.35% Cu).

Aguila's claims cover an area of low to moderate relief and sparse vegetation. The prospect is accessible by two-wheel drive vehicles and can be reached by US Highway 95. Up to several hundred prospecting pits, known locally as "dog holes" have been mapped over an area of 2km by 2km, with many exposing fracture-controlled copper within the quartzite and shales of the Campito Formation or located on gossans associated with intrusive breccia.

Small scale, historical mining activity was undertaken in the 18th and early 19th century focused on the No 1 shaft, which targeted structurally controlled primary copper mineralization comprising chalcopyrite, bornite and chalcocite. A structural zone adjacent to the No 1 shaft was reported to contain copper mineralization across a width of up to 30m.

The bedrock geology at Lida comprises northeast striking, northwest dipping Lower Cambrian limestones of the Poleta Formation overlying the quartzites/shales of the Campito Formation. Iron rich breccia bodies with a pipe-like geometry have been mapped and appear associated with copper mineralization. Hydrothermal alteration includes widespread propylitic-style with local skarn-hornfels alteration associated with intrusive dikes.

Previous documented exploration was primarily conducted by Conoco during the 1970's, which comprised of sampling, geophysics (induced polarisation) and shallow drilling. Conoco identified a large and strong IP anomaly, approximately 2km in length and 500m wide, which trends north-easterly across the prospect coincident with the widespread structurally controlled copper mineralization, small intrusions and widespread propylitic alteration. Drilling did not penetrate the quartzite. Minor pyrite identified in drilling by Conoco within the quartzite is unlikely to account for the strong IP anomaly and may be associated with a pyrite rich "phyllic" porphyry shell.

Aguila believes the Campito Formation formed a relatively impermeable "cap" though which hydrothermal fluids only vented along structures to form the widespread fracture and vein-controlled mineralization found at surface.

The Lida project was staked to test beneath the widespread propylitic alteration and structurally controlled copper oxide mineralization with coincident IP anomaly for a preserved porphyry copper or copper skarn system. Porphyry copper systems in Nevada consistently exhibit a higher degree of preservation than in neighboring Arizona.

Initial exploration will consist of detailed mapping and sampling in addition to a high-resolution magnetic survey. Results will be shared as they become available.

Sample Preparation and QAQC

Drill core at the Bralorne project is drilled in HQ to NQ size ranges (63.5mm and 47.6mm respectively). Drill core samples are minimum 50 cm and maximum 160 cm long along the core axis. Samples are focused on an interval of interest such as a vein or zone of mineralization. Shoulder samples bracket the interval of interest such that a total sampled core length of not less than 3m both above and below the interval of interest must be assigned. Sample QAQC measures of unmarked certified reference materials (CRMs), blanks, and duplicates are inserted into the sample sequence and make up 9% of the samples submitted to the lab for holes reported in this release. Sample preparation and analyses is carried out by ALS Global in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and SGS Canada in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. Drill core sample preparation includes drying in an oven at a maximum temperature of 60°C, fine crushing of the sample to at least 70% passing less than 2 mm, sample splitting using a riffle splitter, and pulverizing a 250 g split to at least 85% passing 75 microns (ALS code PREP-31 / SGS code PRP89). Gold in diamond drill core is analysed by fire assay and atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) of a 50g sample (ALS code Au-AA26 / SGS code GO_FAA50V10), while multi-element chemistry is analysed by 4- Acid digestion of a 0.25 g sample split with detection by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) for 48 elements (Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Bi, Ca, Cd, Ce, Co, Cr, Cs, Cu, Fe, Ga, Ge, Hf, In, K, La, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Nb, Ni, P, Pb, Rb, Re, S, Sb, Sc, Se, Sn, Sr, Ta, Te, Th, Ti, Tl, U, V, W, Y, Zn, Zr). Gold assay technique (ALS code Au-AA26 / SGS code FAA50V10) has an upper detection limit of 100 ppm. Any sample that produces an over-limit gold value via the gold assay technique is sent for gravimetric finish (ALS method Au-GRA22 / SGS method GO_FAG50V) which has an upper detection limit of 1,000 ppm Au. Samples where visible gold was observed are sent directly to screen metallics analysis and all samples that fire assay above 1 ppm Au are re-analysed with method (ALS code Au-SCR24 / SGS code - 6 - GO_FAS50M) which employs a 1kg pulp screened to 100 microns with assay of the entire oversize fraction and duplicate 50g assays on the undersize fraction. Where possible all samples initially sent to screen metallics processing will also be re-run through the fire assay with gravimetric finish provided there is enough material left for further processing.
