NKG Mobilizes a Fourth Rig to Atlanta

Nevada King Mobilizes a Fourth Rig to Atlanta, Resumes Core Drilling for Ongoing Metallurgical Testing Program and Resource Confirmation
VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - Nevada King Gold Corp. (TSXV: NKG) (OTCQX: NKGFF) ("Nevada King" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the mobilization of a diamond core drill to its 5,166 hectare (51.6km2), 100%-owned Atlanta Gold Mine Project, located in the prolific Battle Mountain Trend, 264km northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. There are now four drill rigs operating at Atlanta – three reverse circulation ("RC") rigs and one diamond core drill. The Company is also pleased to announce the results of its 2023 meeting of shareholders.

  • Core drilling will focus on a series of six strategically placed PQ holes totaling 1,480m along high-grade corridors in and around the historic Atlanta Pit that will be used for the ongoing metallurgical testing program as well as confirmation of proximal RC hole results.
  • The Company continues to utilize one RC rig to define deeper mineralization within the West Atlanta Graben ("WAG") while a second RC rig is targeting shallower mineralization along the Atlanta Mine Fault Zone with closer-spaced drilling designed to better define high-grade zones discovered by Nevada King within the main resource area. A third RC rig is currently drilling a series of widely spaced exploration holes at the Western Knolls prospect, located 5.5km west of the Atlanta Pit, testing a variety of geochemical and geophysical anomalies.
  • From inception of the Phase I drill program in June 2021, into the continuation of Phase II, Nevada King has drilled 346 RC holes totaling 55,186m and 17 core holes totaling 1,398m, for a total of 56,584m. Assays from 234 drill holes totaling 32,876m have been reported with results pending for 129 drill holes totaling 22,314m.
  • The existing resource model (Table 1 below) at Atlanta is based on 71 historic drill holes and does not incorporate any of the Phase I or II drilling completed by Nevada King to date – drilling that continues to expand mineralization northward and southward outside of the resource model, as well as westward into the WAG.

About Nevada King Gold Corp.

Nevada King is the third largest mineral claim holder in the State of Nevada, behind Nevada Gold Mines (Barrick/Newmont) and Kinross Gold. Starting in 2016 the Company has staked large project areas hosting significant historical exploration work along the Battle Mountain trend located close to current or former producing gold mines. These project areas were initially targeted based on their potential for hosting multi-million-ounce gold deposits and were subsequently staked following a detailed geological evaluation. District-scale projects in Nevada King's portfolio include (1) the 100% owned Atlanta Mine, located 100km southeast of Ely, (2) the Lewis and Horse Mountain-Mill Creek projects, both located between Nevada Gold Mines' large Phoenix and Pipeline mines, and (3) the Iron Point project, located 35km east of Winnemucca, Nevada.

The Atlanta Mine is a historical gold-silver producer with a NI 43-101 compliant pit-constrained resource of 460,000 oz Au in the measured and indicated category (11.0M tonnes at 1.3 g/t) plus an inferred resource of 142,000 oz Au (5.3M tonnes at 0.83 g/t). See the NI 43-101 Technical Report on Resources titled "Atlanta Property, Lincoln County, NV" with an effective date of October 6, 2020, and a report date of December 22, 2020, as prepared by Gustavson Associates and filed under the Company's profile on SEDAR+ (www.sedarplus.ca).
