Nayarit Gold intersects 11.95 metres of 12.4 g/t gold equivalent, or 742 g/t silver equivalent, or 3.67 g/t gold and 522.3 g/t silver
New Vein Structure intersects 14.7 metres of 5.24 g/t gold equivalent, or 314 g/t silver equivalent, or 2.48 g/t gold and 165 g/t silver
Nayarit Gold Inc. (TSX - VX: NYG), is pleased to report additional drill results from its 30,000 meter Phase II drill program at the Orion District in the State of Nayarit, Mexico. The Company continues to move towards a NI 43-101 resource estimate slated to be completed in mid-2009.
A total of 13 drill holes from the Animas/Del Norte Discovery zone have been received. Drill hole OR-08-114, on the eastern edge of the discovery zone on section 1199, intersected 5.24 g/t gold equivalent or 314 g/t silver equivalent over 14.7 metres (2.48 g/t gold and 165 g/t silver).
This is significant as this is a new vein structure, and not the Animas/Del Norte vein which was intersected from 268.97 metres to 277.25 metres. The new vein has been identified across multiple sections with the intercept in hole OR-08-114 being the first with grades above 10 g/t gold. High-grade mineralization was intersected in a series of holes through the Animas/Del Norte discovery zone including holes OR-08-128, on section 959, which intersected 12.40 g/t gold equivalent or 742 g/t silver equivalent over 11.95 metres, (3.67 g/t gold and 522 g/t silver).
Highlights from selected holes are illustrated below:

Drill hole OR-08-114 is the deepest hole to date on section 1199, and demonstrates the potential for the zone to be open at depth. The Company will test for mineralization at depth between sections 959 and 1199, where to date all but one hole has recorded significant mineralization.
Drilling on the western edge of the discovery, particularly drill hole OR-08-133 has intersected mineralization on the Animas/Del Norte Discovery zone. Mapping and drilling in this area shows faulting which has complicated the nature of the vein structure and potentially the location of mineralization. Additional drilling west of drill hole OR-08-133 will test to see if this intercept represents the edge of another zone that may open to the west.
"The main Animas/Del Norte discovery zone continues to deliver high grade values with exceptional widths. The new vein structure will be followed up on with additional drilling, and demonstrates the potential of multiple structures in the area," stated Colin Sutherland, President & CEO. "We continue to move forward after a highly successful 2008 program, and the Company moves closer to completing our resource estimate slated for mid-2009."
