VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nevada Sunrise Gold Corporation ("Nevada Sunrise" or the "Company") (TSX-V:NEV) is pleased to announce that its joint venture partner Pilot Gold Inc. ("Pilot Gold") (PLG-TSX) has reported to the Company that new drilling at Kinsley Mountain's Western Flank target intersected significant gold mineralization in drill holes spaced over a 500-metre trend that remains open to the north and south.
Hole PK091CA, which returned 8.53 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold ("Au") over 36.6 metres, is at the centre of the trend (see Nevada Sunrise news release dated November 18, 2013). New drill highlights along trend include:
-- 5.00 g/t Au over 7.6 metres
and 4.71 g/t over 7.3 metres in PK096C
-- 2.50 g/t Au over 24.4 metres in PK104C
-- 6.34 g/t Au over 5.9 metres in PK106C, including
9.91 g/t Au over 3.4 metres
Pilot Gold reports that from the Western Flank zone, stratigraphic units hosting gold rise to surface over a distance of 500 metres to the Right Spot target. Mapping and rock sampling at the Right Spot demonstrate a 250-metre north-northeast zone of surface jasperoids returning 1-5 g/t Au in grab samples. These features indicate that the Right Spot surface mineralization may continue north-northeast under cover rocks to the Western Flank target area, suggesting that the Western Flank and Right Spot may be part of a connected gold mineralized system potentially resulting in a mineralized zone that could stretch more than one kilometre in length.
The Western Flank target is located 550 metres northwest of the past-producing pits at Kinsley Mountain. It comprises north-northeast-plunging zones of mineralization hosted in up to three receptive stratigraphic horizons intersected by one or more steep breccia zones that may have served as conduits and porous hosts for gold mineralization. Pilot Gold's drilling has shown that high-grade gold also occurs within a lower limestone unit that was not identified or tested by previous operators.
