September 16, 2021 – Provenance Gold Corp. (CSE: PAU) (FSE: 3PG) (OTCQB: PVGDF) (the “Company” or “Provenance”) is pleased to announce that a major step-out hole, drilled 800 meters southeast of Provenance’s initial drilling area on its White Rock property in Elko County, Nevada, intersected 117 meters (385 feet) of gold mineralization starting at the surface. The gold system extends another kilometer further to the southeast.
The White Rock property was originally optioned from Ely Gold Royalties Inc., which was recently acquired by Gold Royalty Corp. (NYSE: GROY), combining to create a leading growth and Americas-focused precious metals royalty company.
Jerry Baughman of Gold Royalty Corp. states that "We optioned all the original claims at White Rock to Provenance because we recognized that the exploration team consisting of Rauno Perttu, and Steve Craig are the best in Nevada for developing the Project. We count on them to move the project to completion so that Gold Royalty Corp. will benefit from development through our royalty interests."
The assays from this first major step-out hole support the Company’s belief the property hosts a large shallow gold system. Drill hole WR-23, sited 800 meters southeast of the Company’s initial confirmation drilling area, appears to be near the center of the initially recognized mineral system, which extends at least another kilometer further southeast from hole 23.
Hole 23 was drilled to a depth of 146 meters (480 feet), with strong mineralization beginning at the surface and continuing to 117 meters (385 feet). The hole intersected 85 meters (280 feet) averaging 0.369 g/t (0.012 opt) gold to a depth of 94 meters (310 feet). Within that hole were higher grade intervals such as 0.778 g/t (.025 opt) from 38 meters (125 feet) to 46 meters (150 feet).
Provenance CEO Rauno Perttu stated, “This hole is significant because it helps to verify our belief that this is a very extensive open-pit grade gold deposit, with grades typical for a Nevada open pit mine. This hole is near the center of the currently identified mineral system and the strongest historic surface soil and rock samples still extend to the south for another kilometer. Additionally, our continuing field work suggests the gold system extends northwestward through White Rock Mountain for a total of 3 km and with a general width of 1.3 km. As field work continues, we find that the mineralization potential keeps growing.”
Project Manager Steve Craig said, “Based on my 46 years of experience in successful exploration in Nevada, what we are learning from our drilling and site work tells me we are starting to put together a major open pit gold system. Our drill holes and assays will continue to fill in and expand the mineralization in this 4 square kilometer area of alteration and gold mineralization.”
Quality Assurance and Quality Control: The reverse-circulation drilling program utilized by Provenance completed a quality assurance / quality control program (QA/QC) with control samples consisting of standards, blanks and duplicates inserted approximately every 100 feet. Control samples were randomly inserted into the sample stream prior to being sent to the laboratory. The RC drill sampling was in five-foot sample intervals. Drill samples were taken to Paragon Geochemical, an ISO 9001 compliant company in Sparks, Nevada for fire assaying for gold and silver. The rejects and pulps remain with Paragon in Sparks, Nevada. The QA/QC program was implemented as part of the sampling procedures for the exploration program.
Rauno Perttu, P. Geo., a Qualified Person (as defined by National Instrument 43-101), and the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this News Release.
