VANCOUVER, B.C. February 11, 2021 – STEVENS GOLD NEVADA INC. (CSE:SG, OTCQB:STVGF, FSE:311) (the “Company” or “Stevens Gold”) is pleased to announce its maiden drill program on the optioned Millennium Gold Property (the “Property”) located 4.8 km northeast of Lake Havasu City in Mojave County, western Arizona. The Property hosts underexplored low sulphidation volcanic-hosted epithermal gold mineralization with geological similarities in style of mineralization and alteration to other nearby epithermal gold deposits including the Castle Mountain Mine and the Moss Mine.
The drill program will consist of up to 3,000 feet of core drilling that will test known zones of low sulphidation epithermal style gold mineralization previously intersected by historic drilling in 1998. The historic drilling was designed to test surface gold mineralization exposed in windows of alteration and mineralization visible through a dissected fan of alluvial gravels. Assays for continuous outcrop chip or panel samples collected in an east-west direction in this window totaled 158.5 meters in length and averaged 0.97 g/t gold and 5.71 g/t silver. An intersecting north-south panel of samples in the same area reported an interval of 140.2 meters in length averaging 1.12 g/t gold and 5.65 g/t silver. A higher grade 97.5 m section was defined within the north-south panel which graded 1.51 g/t gold and 8.13 g/t silver. In historic drilling five of eight percussion holes drilled by a junior exploration company reported gold assays from altered and mineralized rhyolite and basalt intersections including 0.6 g/t gold over 33 meters.
The Company has submitted its application for a drill permit to the Arizona State Lands Department and we are awaiting their review and approval.
Over the next several months the Company will initiate geological mapping and sampling of select high priority targets exposed on the property and innovative soil geochemical surveys in areas where these targets are covered by overburden. Significant assay results will be targeted for geophysical surveys and drilling.
The Company is not aware of any legal, political, environmental, or other risks that could materially affect the potential development of the project.
