Corvus Gold Inc. (TSX:KOR,OTCQX:CORVF) reported assay results from initial 3 core holes along the northern extension of the Yellowjacket deposit, and 2 core holes from the western extension of the Sierra Blanca deposit, at the North Bullfrog Project in Nevada. At the Yellowjacket deposit, drill hole NB-13-368 returned 33.3 metres at 4.14 g/t gold and is 140 metres along strike from the previously reported intersection.

As quoted in the press release:

In drill hole NB-13-361, located 50 metres up dip from NB-13-360, the main vein thinned as it approached the surface.  However, the stockwork around the vein returned 22.3 metres @ 0.82 g/t gold (Table 1, Figure 1).  The vein interval in drill hole NB-13-367, located 70 metres along strike from NB-13-361, is hosted by dacite which is generally a poor vein host and has limited vein width development.  However, the vein and stockwork combined returned an intercept of 17.2 metres @ 1.15 g/t gold at relatively shallow depths (Table 1, Figure 1).  NB-13-368 encountered a 2 metre wide vein with 27 g/t gold and good stockwork (Table 1).  The intercept in NB-13-368 is 600 metres along strike from the original discovery hole NB-12-138 (Figure 1).

Corvus Gold CEO, Jeff Pontius, said:

The remarkable consistency and expansion potential of the mineralization in the Yellowjacket deposit is encouraging for outlining a major new high-grade gold discovery here in Nevada.  In addition, the discovery of a new broad higher grade oxide gold-tellurium zone at Air Track Hill represents a completely new style of gold mineralization that bodes well for developing other new Yellowjacket type high-grade zones.  With the results of each new hole returned from North Bullfrog, our assessment of the potential of this new Nevada Gold District grows.
