Five Top Ways to Trade Gold’s Break Above $2000 - Thu May 4, 7:24AM CDT

Gold prices are back above $2,000. In fact, it just hit $2,024.96, and could run to $2,500. All after the Federal Reserve kept its interest-hiking options on the table after raising rates by another quarter point today. “The Committee will closely monitor incoming information and assess the implications for monetary policy. In determining the extent to which additional policy firming may be appropriate to return inflation to 2 percent over time, the Committee will take into account the cumulative tightening of monetary policy, the lags with which monetary policy affects economic activity and inflation, and economic and financial developments,” the central bank added. All could be substantial catalysts for gold stocks, such as NevGold Corp. (TSXV: NAU) (OTCQX: NAUFF), Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE: GOLD) (TSX: ABX), Newmont Corporation (NYSE: NEM) (TSX: NGT), Franco Nevada Corp. (NYSE: FNV) (TSX: FNV), and Royal Gold Inc. (NASDAQ: RGLD).

NevGold Corp. announced further drilling has intercepted strongly oxidized, silicified sandstone with quartz veining from surface at the Nutmeg Mountain gold project in Idaho. The Project hosts a 2020 historic Mineral Resource Estimate of 910,000 Indicated ounces of gold (43.5 Mt @ 0.65 g/t Au), and 160,000 Inferred ounces of gold (9.1 Mt @ 0.56 g/t Au) (see Note 1). The Company is awaiting assay results from the further drilling completed at the Project.

Key Highlights

- Hole NMD0004 Intercepted Strongly Oxidized, Silicified Sandstone with Quartz Veining: the signatures and textures intercepted in Hole NMD0004 (Figure 1) are similar to other holes drilled in the current program including NMD0003 (Figure 3, Released on April 13, 2023) which intercepted 0.72 g/t Au over 79.3 meters from 10.4 meters depth (heap-leachable), including 2.32 g/t Au over 13.4 meters from 25.6 meters depth (heap-leachable). Historical drillholes in the 2020 resource area that have been re-logged also exemplify similar characteristics. (Note 1)

- Long Intercept From Surface: Hole NMD0004 intercepted over 120 meters of strongly oxidized, silicified sandstone from surface.

- Resource Growth Potential: the Project has significant resource growth potential along strike and at depth. There is over 100 vertical meters of identified resource potential outside of the US$1500/oz Au pit shell used in the 2020 resource. (Note 1) The focus of the 2023 drill program is to advance Nutmeg Mountain to an updated Mineral Resource Estimate.

NevGold CEO, Brandon Bonifacio, comments: “It is very positive to see our inaugural drill program continue to track at Nutmeg Mountain. We eagerly await assay results from Hole NMD0004 which is currently cut and at American Assay Lab in Sparks, Nevada, with final assays pending. The signatures that we are seeing at or near surface are encouraging. Our technical group is gaining a strong understanding of the regional and localized structures and textures having spent the past 10 months re-logging historical drilling, and after each drillhole is completed in this program. We are looking forward to providing further updates over the coming weeks and months from the drill program.”
