Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – April 26, 2021) – GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (TSXV: SPOT) (“GoldSpot” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has been engaged by Nevada King Gold Corp. (TSXV: NKG) (“Nevada King”), to assist in drill targeting on Nevada King’s extensive land holdings along the prolific Battle Mountain Trend, Nevada. GoldSpot has a large, collaborative team of geoscientists and data scientists focused on maximizing the chances of discovery by extracting the most out of all available data utilizing GoldSpot’s proprietary machine learning technology and geoscience expertise.
- Over the last five years Nevada King has accumulated land holdings of more than 163,860 acres (+660 km2) along the prolific Battle Mountain Trend.
- Multiple targets within these holdings have been subject to hundreds of millions in exploration expenditures over +30 years, much of this by major mining companies.
- These programs have generated substantial data sets that cover large areas of the Nevada King portfolio. Nevada King is currently undertaking aggressive exploration programs on multiple target areas that will significantly add to available data sets.
- GoldSpot will be utilizing its proprietary machine learning techniques and in-house expertise to analyze these large data sets to develop and refine targets, particularly focused on large Carlin-type deposits. These comprehensive techniques have not previously been utilized on these projects to extract the full potential of the data in vectoring to discoveries.
Denis Laviolette, Executive Chairman and President of GoldSpot stated: “Nevada King provides us with a unique opportunity to apply our technology on a large and strategic property package along the Battle Mountain Trend. Past exploration efforts along this trend have yielded several very significant discoveries, and new insights into exploring for large targets at depth have emerged from this work. GoldSpot will work closely with the technical team at Nevada King Gold to analyze geological, geochemical and geophysical data to provide Smart Targets for further drilling. This provides an excellent opportunity for GoldSpot to utilize its powerful data processing and analysis tools to generate exploration concepts and drill targets that will be tested by a well-financed and experienced management team.”
Collin Kettell, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Nevada King stated: “Working with Denis and his team of geoscientists at GoldSpot has yielded great success for several industry companies, including the recent discoveries at New Found Gold’s Queensway Project in central Newfoundland. Nevada King was established six years ago with the goal to acquire a large and strategic land position along one of the world’s most prolific gold exploration trends. We were able to acquire very strategic blocks of ground starting at a time when industry interest was at a low. We are very excited to partner with GoldSpot and to work with their highly experienced and capable team and to bring to bear their unique machine learning capabilities to unlock ideas that will further our goal of making the next major gold discovery in Nevada.”
Nevada King Mining Ltd. and Victory Metals Inc. recently completed a merger of equals to form Nevada King. Among its many projects, Nevada King owns 100% of the Atlanta Mine, located 100km southeast of Ely, Nevada, that currently hosts a NI-43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate constrained by a conceptual pit containing 11 million tonnes of measured and indicated resources, grading 1.3g/t Au and 460,000 Au oz. Inferred mineral resources are 5.31 million tonnes grading 0.83g/t Au containing 142,000 Au oz. (Francis, Kevin. October 6, 2020. NI 43-101 Technical Report on Resources, Atlanta Property, Lincoln County, NV.)
GoldSpot will help delineate drill-ready targets for high-grade gold/silver mineralization, as well as identify prospective areas regionally. GoldSpot’s subject matter experts will homogenize, integrate, process, and interpret exploration datasets such as geological maps, drill logs, geophysics, surface and downhole geochemistry, and structural orientation data. The interpreted and derived products will be used as input layers to GoldSpot’s proprietary AI (machine learning) techniques, which will be validated by the company’s team of expert geoscientists, in collaboration with Nevada King Gold’s technical team. Recent successes by GoldSpot with both leading producers and explorer/developers have demonstrated the potential to expand resources and make new discoveries using this advanced analytical technology.
The technical information in this press release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, and reviewed and approved by Chris MacInnis, professional geoscientist (APGO No. 2059), a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 guidelines.
