Proceeds of the offering are earmarked for advancing the Limousine Butte and Nutmeg Mountain gold projects. Nutmeg Mountain is located in Idaho.
“We are thrilled to complete this timely financing prior to year-end which sets the company up for a very active start in 2023 at both Nutmeg Mountain in Idaho and Limousine Butte in Nevada,’’ said NevGold CEO Brandon Bonifacio.

In a November 10, 2022 press release, NevGold released more assay results from the drilling at the Resurrection Ridge target area at its Limousine Butte Project, which is located in the southern part of Nevada’s infamous Carlin Trend.
The company said Hole RR22-001 intersected 0.53 g/t oxide gold over 74.7 metres, including 0.81 g/t oxide gold over 19.9 metres from the top of the mineralized zone. The current mineralized area at Resurrection Ridge now extends over 700 metres along strike and over 350 metres laterally. It said there remains another 1.0 kilometre of untested strike length to the northeast.
Resurrection Ridge and Cadillac Valley are two drill target areas that will form the basis of advancing Limousine Butte to a near-term resource estimate, the company has said.
As announced in June, 2022, Nevgold acquired an option on the Nutmeg Mountain gold project from GoldMining Inc. Nutmeg is a low-sulphidation epithermal gold-silver deposit. It has been the target of over 70,000 metres of historical drilling.
The project is estimated to contain an indicated resource of 910,000 ounces of gold, plus 160,000 ounces in the inferred category.
