Vancouver, British Columbia – November 22, 2011 – NSGold Corporation (NSX:TSXV) has completed the 2011 drilling program at its wholly-owned Mooseland Gold Project located in Nova Scotia with a total of 16 diamond drill holes totaling 5,020 meters being completed. Eight drill holes were completed on each of the East and West Zones at Mooseland. Most of the drill holes in this year’s program focused on areas with good potential that were outside of the focus area of the 2010 drill program.
Assay results from holes NSG-29-11 through NSG-35-11 have been received and intersections with values over 1 gram per tonne (g/t) are disclosed in the appended table. Significant intercepts include the following;
- 24.7 g/t over 0.8 meters in hole NSG-30-11 (East Zone),
- 32.9 g/t over 0.5 meters in NSG-32-11 (East Zone), and
- 27.81 g/t over 0.8 meters in hole NSG-33-11 (East Zone)
Drill intersections reported are core lengths; true widths are typically 60-65% of core length. Holes NSG-34-11 through NSG-41-11 were drilled on the West Zone. Results from holes NSG-36-11 to NSG-41-11 are pending.
Samples are sent to Activation Laboratories on Ancaster, Ontario and assay standards and blanks are inserted at accepted intervals. All samples are fire assayed and samples with visible gold, or having an expectation of significant results, are assayed using the “screen for metallics” method.
Regular fire assay samples returning values greater than 500 ppb are re-tested using this method as well.
NSX Silver Inc. “Spin-Out” Update
As press released on October 21, 2011, the preliminary prospectus for the “spin-out” of NSX Silver Inc. was filed with the provincial securities commissions and the TSX Venture Exchange on October 20th. We have received the initial comments from the regulators and have provided them with our replies.
We have made one adjustment to the manner of distribution of the shares of NSX Silver Inc. The distribution will now involve a reduction of the paid-up capital of NSGold Corporation. This means that the distribution of shares of NSX Silver to the shareholders of NSGold should be treated as non-taxable for most of NSGold’s shareholders.
A reduction of the paid-up capital of NSGold requires a special meeting of shareholders. NSGold expects that the meeting will be held on or about December 22, 2011. NSGold will mail a management proxy circular to shareholders in connection with the special meeting shortly.
As both processes (the special meeting of shareholders and clearance of the prospectus) will run in parallel, the additional time to achieve this advantageous tax treatment should not be more than 2 to 3 weeks. NSGold’s intention is to set a record date in December for the distribution of the shares of NSX Silver to the shareholders of NSGold, and to have the shares of NSX Silver listed and trading before year end.
Perry MacKinnon, P.Geo., Chief Geologist for NSGold, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the information provided in this news release.
