NSGold Corporation: Update October 2018
Mooseland Gold Property
NSGold’s principal asset is the Mooseland Gold Property located in Nova Scotia approximately 90 kilometers from the capital city of Halifax and 12 kilometers from the producing Moose River Consolidated Gold Mine operated by Atlantic Gold Corporation (TSXV:AGB). Also, Mooseland is located less than 30 kilometers from the Tangier Gold Mine and approximately 65 kilometers from the Dufferin Gold Mine, both of which are held by Resource Capital Gold Corp. (TSXV:RCG). Mining infrastructure on the Mooseland Property includes a three-compartment shaft sunk to a depth of 125 meters, a 218 meter long ramp reaching a depth of 50 meters and a 12,000 cubic meter settling pond.
Historic gold production from the Nova Scotia goldfields, referred to as the Meguma Terrane, exceeds one million ounces. The first recorded gold discovery in Nova Scotia was made at Mooseland in 1858, and the property recorded total historical production from 1863 to 1934 of 3,865 ounces of gold recovered from 9,058 tons of crushed material (J. Bates, 1982).
The Mooseland claims cover approximately 2.5 kilometers of strike length along the anticlinal structure. The Mooseland gold deposit occurs within a typical Meguma structure with steeply dipping limbs. The gold bearing quartz veins at Mooseland occur on both limbs of the fold with similar widths and grades. Total inferred mineral resources for the Mooseland Property are estimated at 454,000 ounces of gold using a cut-off grade of 2.6 grams per tonne (see NSGold news release dated June 5, 2012). This estimate is based on drill core assay results from historic and recent drilling programs totaling 45,382 meters in 183 drill holes.
A summary of the June 2012 resource estimate is provided in the table below.
