VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 7, 2021 / NV Gold Corporation (TSXV:NVX)(OTCQB:NVGLF) (Frankfurt:8NV) ("NV Gold" or the "Company") has completed detailed mapping and Leapfrog modeling at its 100% controlled Slumber Gold Project ("Slumber") located approximately 50 miles northwest of Winnemucca, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA. Permitting a 3rd drilling campaign and negotiations to secure adequate drilling equipment are underway. Drilling is expected to commence in October 2021.

Key Highlights from previous Drilling Program at Slumber Gold Project

  • Two drilling campaigns were completed in 2019/20 comprising 16 reverse circulation ("RC") drill holes, totaling 2,474 m (8,119 ft.).
  • Drilling has outlined a new 600-meter-wide, near-surface mineralized oxide gold zone with notable drill intercepts, including a very encouraging 18.3 m @ 0.52 g/t Au beginning at 48.7 m in Hole SL-11, hosted in an oxidized and silicified rhyolite correlating with a resistive blanket as seen in controlled sourced audio frequency magnetotellurics (CSAMT) data (see Figure 3 & 4). Another hole, SL-14, intersected 134.2m @ 0.14 g/t Au starting from the collar and was terminated in gold mineralization.
  • This newly discovered zone is separate from that discovered during the 2019 drill program and will be prioritized for follow up in a Phase 3 drilling campaign in Q4 2021.
  • The source of the mineralized CSAMT resistive blanket is believed to come from higher grade feeder structures at depth (see Figures 1, 2 & 6).

Mapping and Leapfrog Modeling Conclusions

Mapping has identified extensive alteration favorable for gold mineralization in Upper Volcanic Package (UVP) rocks (Trf & Trt in Figure 1) further north of the gold zone defined by previous drilling. These findings are encouraging, suggesting the system is continuous and may be covered by unaltered flow-banded rhyolite domes (Tr in Figure 1) and Quaternary (Qoa) material.

Rhyolite breccias (tuff breccias and phreatomagmatic breccias of Trf) that were not identified in previous drilling were discovered during detailed mapping of the northern portion of the property. This mapping and specific rock textures and breccia descriptions were used as vectors to the feeder for the system. The feeder target is interpreted, based on the location of a large resistor and open gold mineralization, to be located in the northwest portion of the southern NVX claim block (see Figure 1, 4, 5 & 6).

Structural and geophysical observations indicate the UVP is bounded by graben structures and dips to the north, consistent with the extent of the CSAMT resistor blanket being open to the north (see Figure 4). This resistor anomaly is interpreted as a continuation of the gold system identified in the UVP from previous drilling and will be the main target for the next phase of drilling expected to commence in October (see Figure 1 & 4).

A recently completed three dimensional model completed in Leapfrog software was used to determine the gold volume encountered in the 2019/20 drilling campaigns. Comparing the gold distribution with the reinterpreted geological information it appears that previous drilling might have only peripherally intercepted the southwestern edges of two much larger, potentially mineralized CSMT resistor zones. Combining the known geology with the new mapping and Leapfrog modeling the silicified and mineralized system appears to have a strike-length of at least 1 kilometer and a width of 600 meters and correlates well with two open and north-plunging resistor zones (see Figure 4 & 5). The next drilling campaign will focus on this near-surface oxide and has potential to push Slumber towards a discovery stage.

"I am pleased and extremely excited about the outcome of the recent Slumber mapping and Leapfrog modeling. Slumber is advancing through comprehensive data collection and modeling. Encountering an open, near-surface oxide gold zone is very encouraging. The goal of the Q4 drilling will be to find the source and higher-grade pathways of this gold mineralization. These holes will focus on the north-plunging and open resistor zones. The geochemistry data as imaged in Leapfrog modeling is very impressive and strongly supportive of our goal of delineating an oxide gold resource during 2022 and to advance Slumber to a discovery stage." commented Thomas Klein, VP Exploration of NV Gold.

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – TheNewswire - September 17, 2021 – UEX Corporation (TSX:UEX)  (OTC:UEXCF) (“UEX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has repaid its outstanding term loan (the “Term Loan”) from Denison Mines Corp. (“Denison”).  The Term Loan was used by UEX to purchase JCU (Canada) Exploration Company, Limited (“JCU”), as more particularly described in UEX’s news release dated August 3, 2021.

 

UEX repaid the outstanding balance of C$20.45 million to Denison on September 17, 2021.   Previously, C$20.5 million of the Term Loan was repaid upon UEX transferring 50% of the JCU shares to Denison immediately following the closing of the JCU acquisition (see UEX’s news release dated August 3, 2021).  The shares of JCU owned by UEX that were pledged as security to Denison have been released to UEX.

 

About UEX

UEX is a Canadian uranium and cobalt exploration and development company involved in an exceptional portfolio of uranium projects. 

UEX’s directly-owned portfolio of projects is located in the eastern, western and northern perimeters of the Athabasca Basin, the world's richest uranium belt which in 2020 accounted for approximately 8.1% of the global primary uranium production.  In addition to advancing its uranium development projects through its ownership interest in JCU,  UEX is currently advancing several other uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin which include the Paul Bay, Ken Pen and Ōrora deposits at the Christie Lake Project , the Kianna, Anne, Colette and 58B deposits at its currently 49.1%-owned Shea Creek Project, the Horseshoe and Raven deposits located on its 100%-owned Horseshoe-Raven Development Project and the West Bear Uranium Deposit located at its 100%-owned West Bear Project.

UEX is also 50:50 co-owner of JCU with Denison.  JCU’s portfolio of projects includes interests in some of Canada’s key future uranium development projects, notably a 30.099% interest in Cameco’s Millennium Uranium Development Project, a 10% interest in Denison Mines Wheeler River Project, and a 33.8123% interest in Orano Canada’s Kiggavik Project, located in the Thelon Basin in Nunavut, as well as minority interests in nine other grassroots uranium projects in the Athabasca Basin.

UEX is also leading the discovery of cobalt in Canada, with three cobalt-nickel exploration projects located in the Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan, including the only primary cobalt deposit in Canada.  The 100% owned West Bear Project hosts the West Bear Cobalt-Nickel Deposit, the newly discovered Michael Lake Co-Ni Zone, and the West Bear Uranium Deposit.  UEX also owns 100% of two early-stage cobalt exploration projects, the Axis Lake and Key West Projects.
