NV Gold Commences Drilling at its ATV Gold Project in Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug 1, 2017) - NV Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:NVX)(NVGLF) ("NV Gold" or the "Company) announced today that it has commenced drilling at its 100% controlled ATV Gold Project in Nevada. NV Gold plans to complete up to 4,000 metres of reverse circulation ("RC") drilling at ATV in its initial program.

Drilling will focus various priority targets including:

  • Targets associated with gravity highs believed to indicate areas underlain by prospective Paleozoic sedimentary rocks covered with recent valley-fill gravel and/or volcanic rocks;
  • Structural targets along the margins of gravity highs;
  • A large north-south oriented BLEG geochemical anomaly sitting astride a gravity high potentially resulting from shallowly buried favorable host-rocks;
  • Unconformity-focused mineralization situated along the contact between Tertiary volcanic rocks and Paleozoic sedimentary rocks.

NV Gold has contracted Boart Longyear of Elko, Nevada, which has provided a truck-mounted RC drill for the ATV Gold Project.

John Watson, NVX's CEO states, "We are very pleased to commence drilling at our ATV Gold Project. Based on our geological assessment of the recently staked and leased land position that makes up the ATV Gold Project, there is the potential for the presence of significant sediment-hosted gold deposits similar to what is being produced 8-10 miles to the west, across the Pumpernical Valley. Our drill program will systematically test multiple priority areas, which were identified combining data recently acquired from a positive gravity survey on the area, extensive technical knowledge of the terrain, geochemical data and historical drill data in the vicinity. The initial holes will assist in defining the depths and structure of the Paleozoic sediments, as well as to test the various BLEG anomalies identified by NV Gold in March 2017."

Dr. Hennigh is a director of NV Gold and is not independent and is also the Chairman, President, and a Director of Novo Resources Corp.

    4 Retail Stocks to Boost Sentiment With a Likely Earnings Beat

    The Wall Street is juggling with various macro and micro issues at the moment that have a direct or an indirect bearing on consumer sentiment. Issues such as U.S.-China trade conflict, volatile crude prices, tightening of monetary policy, partial government shutdown and slowing global economy gravely hurt the consumer sentiment that tumbled to 90.7 in January 2019 — its lowest since October 2016 — from 98.3 in December 2018. There is a lingering fear that a fall in consumer sentiment may impact consumers' spending pattern, which accounts for over two-thirds of the U.S. economic activity.

The stock that has been a broken IPO since its third day of trading -- falling below last month's initial $13 price tag -- roared back with its biggest daily gain on Friday. A few analysts initiating bullish calls on the stock last week may be helping, but Chinese growth stocks bouncing back into fancy is the real driver.
