Nevada Sunrise Files NI 43-101 Technical Report on Maiden Resource Estimate for Kinsley Project

TSXV: NEV

VANCOUVER, Dec. 17, 2015 /CNW/ - Nevada Sunrise Gold Corporation ("Nevada Sunrise" or the "Company") (TSXV: NEV) is pleased to announce that in conjunction with Pilot Gold Inc. ("Pilot Gold") (TSX: PLG), the Company has filed a National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") technical report entitled  "Updated Technical Report and Estimated Minerals Resources for the Kinsley Project" (the "Report"), effective October 15, 2015 and dated December 16, 2015, on SEDAR at http://www.sedar.com.

The Report relates principally to an initial independent resource estimate at the Kinsley Mountain property ("Kinsley Mountain") announced on November 4, 2015.  The resource estimate addresses well-explored mineralization in the historic Kinsley Mine area, and contains a significant high-grade component in the Secret Canyon shale unit in the Western Flank area at the northwest end of the Kinsley Mountain mine trend.  It is the first of several targets to be tested and to have sufficient work completed to demonstrate a resource. The majority of the property remains untested by drilling.

The resource estimate for all mineralization types, using multiple cut-offs, is:

Mineralization hosted in the Secret Canyon Shale in the Western Flank zone includes 284,000 Indicated ounces at an average grade of 6.04 g/t gold.

The resource estimate, effective October 15, 2015, includes three separate cut-off grades, reflecting depth from surface, oxidation, and metallurgical considerations.  These include shallow oxidized rock (0.2 g/t Au cut-off); shallow transitional and sulphide mineralization, primarily hosted in the Dunderberg Shale (1.3 g/t Au cut-off), and Secret Canyon Shale-hosted sulphide and transitional mineralization (1.0 g/t Au cut-off).  Cut-off grades assume an open-pit mining scenario, using a pit floor elevation generated using Whittle software, reasonable assumptions for mining and milling costs, and a US$1,300/oz gold price. 

There are no material differences between the results announced in the November 4, 2015 news release and results contained in the Report. The Report has also been posted on the Company's website at www.nevadasunrise.ca.

Pilot Gold and Nevada Sunrise have approved a 2016 program and budget for Kinsley Mountain totaling US$460,000, which includes care and maintenance of the property, and a geological mapping and drill target development program.  The Company's share of the 2016 budget is approximately US$91,000, which is subject to amendment depending on general market conditions.

The Report was prepared by Michael M. Gustin, C.P.G., with Mine Development Associates, Inc. of Reno, Nevada; Gary Simmons, BSc, Metallurgical Engineering, of G L Simmons Consulting, LLC; and Dr. Moira Smith, Ph.D., P.Geo. Chief Geologist for Pilot Gold, all of whom are "Qualified Persons" as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Gustin and Mr. Simmons are independent of Pilot Gold and Nevada Sunrise.

John R. Kerr, P.Eng., is the Company's designated Qualified Person within the meaning of NI 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this news release.   

About Kinsley Mountain
Kinsley Mountain is a joint venture between Pilot Gold and Nevada Sunrise, with Pilot Gold, the operator, holding a 79.1 percent interest, and Nevada Sunrise, through a wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, holding a 20.9 percent interest. Kinsley Mountain hosts near-surface mineralization similar to other Carlin-style, sediment-hosted gold systems. The Project consists of 513 unpatented lode claims on U.S. Bureau of Land Management land plus 6 leased patents totaling 4,213 hectares (10,410 acres), and hosts a past-producing mine with an extensive exploration database and numerous, untested gold targets.

About Nevada Sunrise
Nevada Sunrise is a junior mineral exploration company with a strong technical team based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, that holds interests in five exploration projects in the State of Nevada, USA. Our three key gold assets include a 21% interest in a joint venture with Pilot Gold at Kinsley Mountain near Wendover, a 100% interest in the Golden Arrow project near Tonopah, and a 100% interest in the Roulette gold property in the southeastern Carlin trend near Ely, with each of the properties subject to certain production royalties. Nevada Sunrise began acquisitions of Nevada lithium properties in September 2015, which include options to earn 100% interests in the Neptune and Clayton Northeast projects in the Clayton Valley area, subject to certain production royalties. A third lithium exploration acquisition, the Jackson Wash property, is pending.
