Nubian Intersects 52.4 g/t Au Over 2 Metres at Yandoit Gold Project, Victoria, Australia
TORONTO, Oct. 6, 2021 /CNW/ - Nubian Resources Ltd. (TSXV: NBR) (OTCQB: NBRFF) ("Nubian" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on work underway on its maiden drill program at the Company's Yandoit Gold Project in the Central Victorian Goldfields, Australia. To date, 1,164 metres of reverse circulation ("RC") and 458 metres of diamond core has been completed at the Goldsmith and Golconda prospects. Assay results have been received from 20 holes including 2.0m @ 52.4 g/t gold in hole YRC008. This result highlights the potential for exceptional high-grade gold at the Yandoit Gold Project, consistent with the historical descriptions of production this under-explored goldfield.
Highlights from surface and drilling results at Goldsmith Line include:
Martin Walter, President and CEO of Nubian stated, "The discovery of high grade gold in our first drill program at Yandoit is very exciting, and justifies our thinking that this goldfield presents potential for a major discovery. We have only tested a small part of the project, and look forward to drilling other reefs as the permitting process progresses and winter conditions subside. I thank our local Victorian team for delivering a safe and successful program during an unusually wet winter."
Analytical results have been received from 20 RC holes as detailed in Table 1 with collar locations provided as Table 2 and Figure 1. All holes intersected quartz veins, sulphide and structural zones that are indicative of the reef positions targeted by historic mining. Gold mineralization in Central Victoria is "nuggety" in style with low grade gold, pathfinder elements and quartz-vein texture important indicators for near-mineralization intersections.

In addition to drilling, surface mapping of historic workings and sampling has continued. This program has discovered numerous gold mineralized samples on dumps, with 16 samples taken that range from 0.042 to 7.45 g/t gold, averaging 2.14 g/t. In combination with drilling, the surface sampling has extended the target at Goldsmith to over 500 metres in length. This sampling is in addition to that previously reported (see press release dated April 29, 2021) that highlighted the presence of gold in sulphide that was not recovered.
The Yandoit Gold Project is characterized by the presence of multiple north-south striking quartz vein systems, each spaced approximately 50 metres apart, marked by quartz float and abundant historic workings. The current program has focused on the northern extension of the Goldsmith and Golconda mines which were in production until approximately 1908, and were known for rich structurally controlled shoots of free gold.

RC drilling was completed by Indicator Drilling Pty Ltd with a hole diameter of 95mm. Approximately 2kg of sample was bagged on site and sent for assay per 2m of drilling. Wet conditions necessitated spear sampling of bags. Alternating duplicates and certified reference materials were inserted as per industry standard. Assays were completed by Intertek Genalysis in Adelaide using Fire Assay Digest and Mass Spectroscopy analytical method.
