Gold Still Viewed as a Favorable Hedge Against Inflation as the Price has increased Considerably

Palm Beach, FL – April 6, 2022 – News Commentary – Gold is like no other commodity. It has held the fascination of human societies since the beginning of recorded time. Empires and kingdoms were built and destroyed over gold and mercantilism. Gold. It’s shiny, metallic, and melts easily into bars, coins, or jewelry. It doesn’t rust, corrode, or decay. As societies developed, gold was universally accepted as a satisfactory form of payment. In short, history has given gold a power surpassing that of any other commodity on the planet, and that power has never really disappeared. In fact,  an article in Investopedia says that, in fact, by some accounts, gold has never been more fashionable as an alternative investment, able to weather financial crises and hedge against the inflationary pressures of fiat currency. From a fundamental perspective, gold is generally viewed as a favorable hedge against inflation. Gold functions as a good store of value against a declining currency.  The article continued saying: “The easiest way to gain exposure to gold is through the stock market, via which you can invest in actual gold bullion or the shares of gold-mining companies. Investing in gold bullion won’t offer the leverage you would get from investing in gold-mining stocks. As the price of gold goes up, miners’ higher profit margins can boost earnings exponentially. Suppose a mining company has a profit margin of $200 when the price of gold is $1000. If the price rises 10%, to $1100 an ounce, the operating margin of the gold miners goes up to $300 – a 50% increase.  Of course, there are other issues to consider with gold-mining stocks, namely political risk (since many operate in third-world countries) and the difficulty of maintaining gold production levels.”  Active companies in the markets this week include NevGold Corp. (OTCQB:NAUFF) (TSXV:NAU), Karora Resources Inc. (OTCQX: KRRGF) (TSX: KRR), i-80 GOLD CORP. (OTCQX: IAUCF) (TSX: IAU), Argonaut Gold Inc. (OTCPK: ARNGF) (TSX: AR), Discovery Silver Corp. (OTCQX: DSVSF) (TSX-V: DSV).


The report continued: “The most common way to invest in physical gold is through the SPDR’s Gold Shares (GLDexchange-traded fund (ETF), which simply holds gold. When investing in ETFs, pay attention to net asset value (NAV), as the purchase can at times exceed NAV by a wide margin, especially when the markets are optimistic.  You can’t ignore the effect of human psychology when it comes to investing in gold. The precious metal has always been a go-to investment during times of fear and uncertainty, which tend to go hand in hand with economic recessions and depressions.”


NevGold Corp. (OTCQB:NAUFF) (TSXV:NAU) BREAKING NEWS:  NevGold Intercepts 0.86 g/t Oxide Au Over 175.2 Meters And 0.83 g/t Oxide Au Over 126.2 Meters at Limousine Butte NevGold Corp. is pleased to announce further assays from the Company’s drill program at the Cadillac Valley target area at its Limousine Butte Project, Nevada (the “Project”) located on the southern part of the Carlin Trend. Further assays from the Company’s inaugural 10,000 meter drill program at the Project are expected regularly for the remainder of the first half of 2022.


Key Highlights

  • Building a High-Grade, Oxide Gold Resource: CV22-001 intercepted 0.86 g/t oxide Au over 175.2 meters (the first portion of CV22-001 was released on March 8, 2022, and included 2.13 g/t oxide Au over 58.2 meters including 12.32 g/t oxide Au over 5.9 meters), and CV22-002 intercepted 0.83 g/t oxide Au over 126.2 meters at a location over 700 meters from CV22-001.
  • Large, Open Mineralized Footprint: the mineralized area at Cadillac Valley extends over 1 km along strike and over 400 meters laterally, defining a large, oxide, mineralized footprint (Figure 1). There are numerous further targets that will be tested in the current drill program.
  • Mineralization Trends Up-Dip and Shallower: as expected based on the Company’s geological interpretation and model, holes CV22-002 and CV22-003 confirm mineralization trends up-dip and shallower further south at the Cadillac Valley target area. (See Figure 2) The assays received to date have been important data points to vector in on new areas of potential mineralization.
  • Highly Oxidized Mineralization: assay results from all of the holes received at Cadillac Valley reported oxidized mineralization. Oxidized mineralization has been seen in all of the holes drilled to date by the Company at Limousine Butte.


NevGold CEO, Brandon Bonifacio, comments: “Building on the initial assays released from Cadillac Valley on March 8, we have received the remaining assays from CV22-001, along with holes CV22-002 and CV22-003. These results have started to confirm the large extent of the mineralized footprint at Cadillac Valley, which extends over 1 km northeast to southwest, and over 400 meters laterally. It is becoming clear there is a large, oxide gold system at this important target area at the project. As we highlighted in our previous disclosure, it is also promising to see the geological model being validated with the up-dip trend of mineralization as we work further south at Cadillac Valley. We will remain consistent with assays over the coming months from the 10,000 meter drill program at Limousine Butte.”


NevGold Chief Geologist, Derick Unger, comments: “We are very encouraged by this further data from Cadillac Valley, which is becoming a large target area based on these results. We are gaining a strong understanding of the structural characteristics, which is helping us refine the drill program as data is received from the assay lab, which is occurring in an expedited fashion. The remaining assays from CV22-001 have confirmed a thick, high-grade interval of oxidized gold mineralization. We also expected mineralization to trend up-dip and shallower as we drilled further south at Cadillac Valley, and it is exciting to see this interpretation validated based on the results seen in CV22-002 and CV22-003. We have completed subsequent holes at both Resurrection Ridge and Cadillac Valley and expect further assays shortly.”  CONTINUED… READ THIS FULL RELEASE AT
