Nevada Sunrise Update on Golden Arrow Gold Project

Nevada Sunrise Update on Golden Arrow Gold Project07:00 EDT Thursday, October 04, 2012VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2012) - Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NEV) is pleased to provide this update on its Golden Arrow Project, located in Nye County, Nevada. A total of 5,570 meters of reverse circulation drilling in 21 holes were completed during the recent drill campaign. The program was designed primarily to evaluate areas in the vicinity of the previously-defined resources at Hidden Hill and Gold Coin for additional potential centers of gold mineralization. Targets were chosen to be less than 300 meters in depth and were based primarily on the previously completed Orion 3D DCIP/MT geophysical survey over an approximately 8 square km area performed by Quantec Geoscience in November 2011. Numerous targets at depths greater than 300 meters were not tested in this program. Highlights of the drill results are outlined below. Eight holes in two separate clusters about 300 meters west of Hidden Hill define a new target region with the following highlights:Hole GA12-361 intersected 7.6 meters containing 1.00 g/t gold. Hole GA12-356 intersected 7.6 meters containing 0.54 g/t gold, including 6.1 meters containing 0.61 g/t gold. Hole GA12-355 intersected two separate intervals - 4.7 meters containing 0.42 grams g/t gold and 4.6 meters containing 0.83 g/t gold, the latter includes 3.1 m of 1.05 g/t gold. Hole GA12-363 intersected 4.6 meters containing 0.55 g/t gold. One hole confirmed and extended a small pocket of previously-identified resource between, and west of, Hidden Hill and Gold Coin:Hole GA12-371 intersected two separate intervals-6.1 meters containing 0.44 g/t gold, and 3.1 meters containing 0.30 g/t gold. One hole identifies mineralization 250 m south of Hidden Hill, between that resource and Gold Coin:Hole GA12-360 intersected two separate intervals-9.1 meters containing 0.31 g/t gold and 3.0 meters containing 0.23 g/t gold. One hole was drilled into the Hidden Hill resource zone as calibration for the Orion 3D DCIP/MT geophysical survey:Hole GA12-367 intersected five separate intervals - 15.2 meters containing 0.47 g/t gold, 21.3 meters containing 1.66 g/t gold, 3.1 meters containing 1.04 g/t, 4.6 meters containing 0.51 g/t gold and 3.1 m containing 0.34 g/t gold. Eighteen of the twenty holes drilled outside of Hidden Hill and Gold Coin (one of the 21 holes was drilled in the Hidden Hill resource) attest to wide-spread mineralization above 0.2 g/t gold. The two separate clusters of mineralization west of Hidden Hill which were identified by this drilling, in conjunction with other geologic and geophysical indicators, suggest exploration in this area has a good probability of successfully defining additional mineralized centers. Given current gold prices the combination of re-evaluation of the defined resources at Hidden Hill and Gold Coin, and additional exploration in the new target areas has the potential to expand the resource base outside of the known mineral centers. A summary of the complete drilling results are shown in the accompanying table. A detailed drill hole plan map can be found on the Company's website at: http://www.nevadasunrise.com under "Exploration - Golden Arrow".Golden Arrow Resource EstimateThe classified mineral resource report for Golden Arrow is quoted at a variable cut-off grade of 0.01 ounce per ton gold for oxide material and 0.015 ounce per ton gold for non-oxidized material and consists of: A measured and indicated resource of 296,500 ounces of gold at an average grade of 0.024 ounce per ton Au, and 4,008,000 ounces of silver at an average grade of 0.33 ounce per ton Ag (12,172,000 tons); An additional inferred resource of 50,400 ounces of gold at an average grade of 0.013 ounce per ton Au, and 1,249,000 ounces silver at an average grade of 0.33 ounce per ton Ag (3,790,000 tons). For further information on Golden Arrow, please review the National Instrument 43-101 technical report dated May 1, 2009 filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, and on the Company's website at www.nevadasunrise.com.The technical disclosure in this news release has been reviewed by Richard Kehmeier, CPG, a Qualified Person as defined by N.I. 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators.True widths of mineralized intervals have not yet been determined. The drill composites reported in the text and table of this news release were calculated using a cut off grade of 0.20 g/t gold and allowing an internal dilution of 1 sample width (1.524 meters) at 0.10 g/t gold. Sampling was done on regular five foot intervals and conversion to meters was calculated using 0.3048 meter/ft. Grade-Thickness results used were calculated from the composited intervals using the criteria detailed above. Drill samples were assayed by American Assay Labs in Reno and ALS Chemex provided third party checks. QA/QC protocols put in place by Nevada Sunrise's Qualified Person, Richard Kehmeier, included SRM material, lab and field duplicates and blanks. The Qualified Person has reviewed all the results and verifies the assay values reported from the lab and in this press release are representative of the mineralization encountered in the recent drill program.ABOUT NEVADA SUNRISE:Nevada Sunrise (TSX VENTURE:NEV) is a publicly-traded gold exploration company that holds a portfolio of three projects in Nevada, namely Kinsley Mountain, Golden Arrow, and Pinnacle, totalling approximately 15,735 acres (6,368 hectares) of prospective land.
