Elevation Gold Mining Intersects 45.72 Meters Grading 1.17 g/t Gold and 12.53 g/t Silver 175 Meters to the East of the Moss Mine East Pit

Published: Dec. 1, 2021 at 6:00 AM CST

VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Elevation Gold Mining Corp. (TSXV: ELVT) (OTCQX: EVGDF) (the "Company" or "Elevation Gold") a U.S.-focused gold and silver producer with district-scale exploration projects in the Walker Lane Trend, is pleased to report recent results from its ongoing multi-phase infill and resource expansion drilling program at the Moss Mine in NW Arizona (Figure 1: Moss Project Drilling Location). Results presented in this release include those from infill drilling in the East Extension area to the east of the active East pit, and in the Gold Bridge area between the West and Center pits (Figure 2: Drillhole Location Map).

Key Points, Moss Mine Drilling:

  • Elevated gold and silver grades were intersected in the Moss vein and associated hanging wall stockwork down to depths of between 30 meters and 205 meters below the current surface along a strike length of almost 175 meters to the east of the East pit's eastern crest:
  • Drilling in the Gold Bridge area continues to intersect thick zones of significant stockwork vein-hosted gold and silver mineralization:

Elevation Gold President, Michael G. Allen commented, "We are very excited about the expansion potential that is being demonstrated at the Moss mine through our infill-exploration drilling program. Continued intersection of thick zones of significant stockwork-hosted precious metal mineralization in the Gold Bridge area provide further support for the potential to amalgamate the West and Center pits into a single pit. The new drill results along almost 175 meters of the Moss vein system in the Eastern Extension area highlight the mine expansion potential to the east. We are planning an expanded drilling program for 2022, focusing on both resource expansion and exploration drilling."

Elevation Gold Vice President Exploration, Warwick S. Board commented, "Successful intersection of the Moss vein system almost 175 meters along strike to the east of the current East pit establishes a new 'known' baseline from which to conduct additional systematic resource expansion drilling to the east. The thick intersections of stockwork-hosted gold and silver epithermal mineralization in the West pit could represent the uppermost parts of the Moss vein system that were down-faulted to the west along the Canyon fault that runs between the West and Center pits. Additional drilling is being conducted to assess the potential for intersecting master veins to further augment the bulk tonnage stockwork mineralization."

Eastern Extension Drilling

Systematic drill exploration in the East Extension area has successfully intersected the Moss vein and hanging wall stockwork along a strike length of almost 175 meters extending from the current eastern crest of the East pit (Figure 2: Drillhole Location Map: Figure 3: Cross Section: East Extension, Line 2 ). Depths to significant gold and silver intersections ranged from approximately 30 meters to nearly 205 meters below surface. Assay results for eleven RC drillholes from six different drilling locations in the East Extension area are included in this news release (Table 1). Results from this drilling are being used to inform additional drilling in the East Extension area.

Gold Bridge Drilling

Broad intersections of stockwork-hosted epithermal gold and silver mineralization were intersected from surface down to depths greater than 230 meters below the current surface in the Gold Bridge area pits (Figure 2: Drillhole Location Map; Figure 4: Cross Section: Gold Bridge. Site 2 ), further highlighting the potential for linking the Center and West pits (see News Release dated November 4, 2021). A total of ten RC drillholes drilled from a single location in the Gold Bridge area located between the Center and West are included in this news release (Table 1).

Note: True thickness ranges between approximately 30% of the reported interval thickness for subvertical drilling and 87% for drilling inclined at -45 degrees to the Moss vein in the East Extension. Although true thickness of the variably oriented stockwork system in the Gold Bridge area is more difficult to assess due to the variably oriented multiple veins and veinlets that make up this zone, stockwork mineralization intersections reported for this area in the table above are considered reflective of the broader bulk tonnage mineralization target zone thickness. True thickness of larger discrete veins within this zone range between 25% to 75% for drillholes oriented between -45 degrees to -75 degrees to the stockwork vein system down to less than 5% for subvertical drillholes. Assay data are uncapped. AuEq = Au + Ag/75. RC drilling was conducted by Boart Longyear. RC samples, collected every 1.52 m, were transported in sealed bags to Skyline Assayers and Laboratories (Skyline) in Tucson, AZ. Field control QAQC samples, including standards, blanks, and field duplicates, were inserted into the sample stream at a rate of three field control samples every 20 regular samples. Gold was determined by fire-assay fusion of a 30 g sub-samples with atomic absorption spectroscopy (method FA-01). Overlimit samples of gold were assayed by gravimetric means (FA-02). Skyline Laboratories is accredited in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015.
