Nevada Sunrise reports on Roulette Gold Project Exploration in Nevada


VANCOUVER, June 18, 2015 /CNW/ - Nevada Sunrise Gold Corporation ("Nevada Sunrise" or the "Company") (TSXV: NEV) is pleased to announce the results of  ground geophysical surveys at the Roulette Gold Project ("Roulette", or the "Project") located in White Pine County, eastern Nevada, USA, at the southeastern extent of the Carlin Trend.

The 2015 geophysical surveys were focussed in an approximate 1,500 metre-long area in the northern part of Roulette covering two jasperoid outcrops ("Parlay" and "Gambit") known from historical prospecting and mapping, one of which is mineralized. The Parlay jasperoid was sampled in August 2014 by Nevada Sunrise and returned 4.44 grams/tonne gold over a sample length of 3.30 metres (10 feet), and 1.05 grams/tonne gold over a sample length of 2.64 metres (8 feet).

The Volterra 3-D Induced Polarization survey was undertaken by SJ Geophysics Ltd. The survey consisted of 17.0 line kilometres, and was intended to map the geophysical properties, resistivity and chargeability of the subsurface rocks. An additional 3.4 kilometres of reconnaissance 2-D lines in the southern half of the Project was also completed along with a magnetic survey on the same survey lines to assist in the mapping of interpreted geological structures.

The results of the survey show three strong chargeability anomalies:

  • The largest chargeability high is located near the south end of the survey grid, ENE of the Parlay jasperoid gold showing;
  • A second chargeability high is located in the north central part of the grid, immediately east of the Gambit jasperoid;
  • A third chargeability high is located on the northernmost line of the survey on strike with the Parlay and Gambit jasperoids and is open to the north.

Two of the three chargeability anomalies are observed to coincide with resistivity highs, which are commonly associated with jasperoid bodies. The high chargeability anomalies possibly reflect significant sulphide content within these bodies. Other resistivity anomalies located along strike of the two known jasperoid outcrops may reflect the presence of additional buried jasperoid bodies. The magnetic survey showed little contrast between the interpreted rock units, which is not unexpected due to the relatively homogenous sedimentary rocks present at Roulette. However, a strong magnetic anomaly was detected on the northern boundary of the survey grid. Other weaker magnetic anomalies within the grid may indicate a NNE trending fault and possible contact zones.

A multi-element geochemical survey is planned over the geophysical survey grid to test for gold-in-soil anomalies and other pathfinder elements. Nevada Sunrise will integrate the geochemical and geophysical results, and select targets for a future drilling program, if warranted.

About the Roulette Gold Project
Roulette (formerly known as the Grulla property) is located approximately 30 miles (45 km) north of Ely, Nevada in a fertile area of mineral exploration. Roulette consists of 120 unpatented claims totaling 2,400 acres (971 hectares), and was acquired by Nevada Sunrise in November 2014 (for further details on the Roulette acquisition see the Company's news release dated November 17, 2014).

To the north of Roulette is McEwen Mining Inc.'s ("McEwen") Limousine Butte project, which according to McEwen's public disclosure in three deposits hosts a Measured resource of 168,350 ounces of gold, and an Indicated resource of 72,730 ounces of gold, for a Measured plus Indicated total resource of 241,080 ounces of gold, and an Inferred resource of 50,700 ounces of gold (Source: "NI 43-101 Technical Report for the Limousine Butte Project, White Pine County Nevada", dated July 1, 2009, authored by Telesto Nevada Inc.). To the northwest, Freeport-McMoran Inc. ("Freeport") holds a large claim block (approximately 30,000 acres, or 12,000 hectares) prospective for porphyry copper/gold deposits, which encompasses the Butte Valley copper prospect Freeport acquired in 2012 from Quaterra Resources Inc.

The conceptual target at Roulette is Carlin-type gold deposits, which are observed to be sediment-hosted, with disseminated gold. Gold is commonly micron-sized, and is associated with hydrothermal alteration of carbonate host rocks. Nevada Sunrise believes that Roulette is underexplored - there were no known ground or airborne geophysical surveys in the public record, and any historical drilling is unconfirmed as to drill hole location, footage or results.

Roulette shows geological similarities to the Alligator Ridge gold deposits located about 24 miles (36 km) to the west, now part of Barrick Gold's Bald Mountain gold mine. The Alligator Ridge mine was discovered in the mid-1970s in an area of no previous exploration or mining history after a mineralized outcrop was found by a prospector. The area was subsequently mapped, sampled and drilled. Production of approximately 700,000 ounces of gold from three deposits at Alligator Ridge was reported by various operators into the 1990s, until its assimilation into the Bald Mountain mine.

Roulette and Alligator Ridge share certain sedimentary rock formations known to host Carlin-style mineralization, namely a sequence of Devonian/Mississippian limestones and shales including the Guilmette Limestone, Pilot Shale, Joana Limestone and Chainman Shale. Nevada Sunrise believes that the potential exists for undiscovered gold mineralization at Roulette, with Alligator Ridge as a model for future exploration on the Project.
