Corvus Gold Inc. (TSX:KOR,OTCQX:CORVF) announced assay results from its North Bullfrog Project in Nevada. The Company extended the high-grade Yellowjacket Zone strike length to 650 metres with 125 metre north stepout, extending the New Eastern Vein. One zone of quartz veining returned 1.2 metres @ 3.07 g/t gold and 8.00 g/t silver and another returned 2.4 metres @ 7.57 g/t gold and 6.90 g/t silver.
As quoted in the press release:
Hole NB-13-352 encountered 270 metres of continuous mineralization, which included four separate zones of quartz veining. One zone of quartz veining returned 1.2 metres @ 3.07 g/t gold and 8.00 g/t silver and another returned 2.4 metres @ 7.57 g/t gold and 6.90 g/t silver. Hole NB-13-352 has now intercepted high-grade vein mineralization for a distance of nearly 650 metres, which mineralization remains open on all directions (Figure 1).
Corvus Gold Inc. CEO, Jeff Pontius, said:
The extension of the Yellowjacket system several hundred metres to the north, as shown by holes NB-13-350 & 352, dramatically expands this high-grade portion of the North Bullfrog deposit. In addition, the multiple new vein zones identified in hole 352 and the recently announced new vein zone discoveries in RC holes to the west are outlining the potential for continued expansion of high-grade vein system to the west and north. When put in the context of the greater North Bullfrog District potential and the fact that Sierra Blanca is only the first of several high priority targets to be explored, the overall potential of the Company’s North Bullfrog property is demonstrably significant. This multimillion ounce potential, linked with the excellent project infrastructure, secure mining friendly jurisdiction, projected simple oxide gold recovery and currently estimated low development cost, highlights the exceptional asset controlled by the Company.
