- Cadillac Valley South Discovery Extends Mineralization 650 Meters From CV22-002: CV22-006 intercepted 0.51 g/t oxide Au over 73.1 meters from a drill pad over 650 meters away from CV22-002 (0.83 g/t oxide Au over 126.2 meters released on April 6, 2022) expanding mineralization along strike to the southwest. (Figure 1) Cadillac Valley South is an important discovery as it significantly expands the mineralized footprint at Cadillac Valley. The newly discovered area requires follow-up drilling and drillholes have been planned in the current program.
- Large, Open Mineralized Footprint at Cadillac Valley Continues to Grow: the mineralized area at Cadillac Valley now extends over 1.6 km along strike and over 400 meters laterally. There is also another +1.5 km of untested strike length to the southwest of CV22-006. (Figure 3)
- More Oxide Gold Mineralization Building the Path to a Near-Term Resource: Hole CV22-004 intercepted 0.63 g/t oxide Au over 73.2 meters, including 1.00 g/t oxide Au over 19.8 meters from the top of the mineralized zone, and was lost in mineralization due to ground conditions. Target depth of the hole extended another 200 meters from terminated depth. CV22-004 was angled to infill the mineralized footprint around CV22-002 (0.83 g/t oxide Au over 126.2 meters released on April 6, 2022). More drilling in this area will be required to understand the extents of mineralization and drillholes have been planned in the current program.
- Highly Oxidized Mineralization: oxidized mineralization has been seen in all of the holes drilled to date by the Company at Limousine Butte.
- Exploration Upside: large areas of the 67 km2 Limousine Butte Project are untested and there are various identified targets based on the current Company geological model. (Figure 4) The mineralized system is open and growing as drilling occurs along strike with large step-out holes.
NevGold CEO, Brandon Bonifacio, comments: “We are continuing to build a meaningful, near-surface, high-grade oxide gold story at Limousine Butte. Intercepting another thick, continuous hole with a 650 meter step out (Hole CV22-006) significantly expands the mineralized footprint at Cadillac Valley. It is very encouraging to see new areas of potential mineralization being identified and then confirmed by drilling, and we believe this will continue as we apply the same targeting techniques project wide. The thesis is building that we have a large oxide gold system with higher grade material than many heap-leach projects in production or development in the Western USA. We have remained on budget and on schedule with our 10,000 meter drill program and expect further assays shortly.”
NevGold VP Exploration, Derick Unger, comments: “We are very excited about this current batch of results as they further build momentum around the Cadillac Valley target area. As we have highlighted in the past, our technical team continues to increase confidence in our geological model, which drives our drill program. We are seeing positive reconciliations of expectations against results in terms of thickness and grade, and this trend will continue as we further expand the mineralized system. Hole CV22-004 that was lost in mineralization due to ground conditions was targeted to extend another 200 meters in a very prospective area. With the continuous reinforcement of our geological model, we have also identified a number of targets on untested ground that have the potential to add to the mineralized footprint.”
* Downhole thickness reported; true width varies depending on drill hole dip and is approximately 70 to 90% of downhole thickness.
** Drill results from core holes CV22-001 to CV22-003 were released on April 6, 2022. Holes CV22-004 to CV22-006 were reverse circulation (“RC”) holes.
*** CV22-004 was lost in mineralization due to ground complexities. Target depth extended another 200 meters.

Sampling Methodology, Chain of Custody, Quality Control and Quality Assurance: All sampling was conducted under the supervision of the Company’s geologists and the chain of custody from the Project to the independent sample preparation facility, American Assay Labs in Sparks, NV, was continuously monitored. The samples were crushed, pulverized and sample pulps were analyzed using industry standard fire assay methods. A blank and certified reference material was inserted approximately every 20th sample, and field duplicates were collected and analyzed approximately every 20th sample. Data verification of the analytical results included a statistical analysis of the standards and blanks that must pass certain parameters for acceptance to ensure accurate and verifiable results.
