This is Why Gold Could See Higher Highs in 2022

June 14, 2022 -

The Federal Reserve is failing to contain inflation, according to Greenlight Capital hedge fund manager, David Einhorn. As a result, gold prices could move even higher. “The Fed is bluffing," Einhorn said, as quoted by "The Fed doesn't really have the tools to stop the inflation. When the Fed has to choose between fighting inflation and supporting the Treasury, I think it has to pick the Treasury. At that point, it's best to have some gold.” In addition, “Einhorn has been a long-time proponent of physical gold, which represents a significant position in his fund. According to Reuters, Greenlight Capital's fund is up 20.9% this year due to its gold investment and macro trade,” added All could be solid catalysts for stocks, such as NevGold Corp. (TSXV: NAU) (OTCQX: NAUFF), Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: GOLD) (TSX: ABX), Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (TSX: NGT), B2Gold Corp. (TSX: BTO) (NYSE: BTG), and Equinox Gold Corp. (TSX: EQX) (NYSE: EQX).

NevGold CEO, Brandon Bonifacio, comments: “NevGold is extremely pleased to enter the option agreement to acquire Nutmeg Mountain. The asset has attractive scale with a historical resource completed in 2020 of 910,000 Indicated ounces of gold, and 160,000 Inferred ounces of gold starting at surface, and significant exploration upside, while also being located in a premier jurisdiction with excellent infrastructure near site. We see many opportunities to extract value at Nutmeg Mountain like we have at Limousine Butte over the past 12 months, and we see the value extraction roadmap as being very similar. This transaction also adds the benefits of a new strategic partner and investor, especially with a long-term growth focused, well-established team like GoldMining. We look forward to the next chapter of NevGold with GoldMining as a large shareholder as we continue to build one of the marquee gold resource and exploration platforms in the Western USA.”

GoldMining CEO, Alastair Still, comments: “We are excited to have formed a partnership with NevGold to share in the potential benefits as they conduct work to grow and develop the Nutmeg Mountain Project. GoldMining is also encouraged by the continued exploration success at Limousine Butte in Nevada, and the upside potential of the other assets within the NevGold portfolio.”

Closing of the grant of the Option is expected to be in June-2022, subject to customary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Option and the Investment will be subject to a hold period ending four months and one day after issuance. Under a 2021 Investor Rights Agreement executed with McEwen Mining Inc. (“McEwen Mining”), McEwen Mining has the pro-rata participation right to maintain its current 10% share interest in NevGold after the issuance of shares pursuant to the Option and the Investment within 10 business days.

Upon completion of this transaction, NevGold’s portfolio will include:

Nutmeg Mountain, Idaho (option to acquire 100%): recent 2020 historical resource estimate of 910,000 Indicated ounces of gold, plus 160,000 Inferred ounces of gold in a favorable jurisdiction.

Limousine Butte, Nevada (100%): advanced exploration project with a historical gold resource showing positive, consistent oxide gold intercepts and an expanding mineralized footprint. (see February 8, March 8, April 6, 2022, and June 2, 2022 News Releases)

Cedar Wash, Nevada (100%): large under-explored land position in southeast Nevada with positive, near-surface, oxide gold from historical shallow drilling.

Ptarmigan, British Columbia (100%): high grade silver-base metal property in Southeast BC.

Nutmeg Mountain Gold Project

The Nutmeg Mountain Gold Project is located in Western Idaho approximately 80 kilometers north-northwest of Boise and approximately 20 kilometers east of Weiser, Idaho. (Figure 1) The Project has seen over 70,000 meters of historical drilling with 934 core, RC, and rotary holes. The Project is a low-sulphidation epithermal gold-silver deposit with similar geology to several other Western USA epithermal deposits. Historical drilling at the Project focused on defining the disseminated mineralization that starts at surface and did not test for the high-grade vein structures at depth. The last active drill program at the project occurred in 2012.

Project Development Plan

Post-closing, NevGold has comprehensive plans for advancing the Project. These include:

- Compilation and re-analysis of the historic Project exploration database using modern exploration technologies

- Preparing a current mineral resource estimate

- Development of new drill targets with the objective of expanding the mineral resource laterally and at depth

- Targeting the higher-grade feeder system typically seen in low-sulphidation epithermal deposits; the high-grade feeder system has not been tested by prior operators and is an exceptional exploration target

- Detailed metallurgical program to characterize the deposit and determine the optimal gold recovery process

- Permitting to allow for baseline environmental surveys

The information developed from the above programs will guide the development of parameters to be used in a near-term engineering study on the project with targeted completion in 2023.
