VANCOUVER, BC, May 26, 2022 /CNW/ - Elevation Gold Mining Corp. (TSXV: ELVT) (OTCQX: EVGDF) ("Elevation Gold " or the "Company") a U.S.-focused gold producer with district-scale exploration potential in the Walker Lane Trend in Arizona and Nevada, is pleased to announce financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.  All figures are expressed in US dollars unless otherwise noted.

Refer to Non-IFRS Performance Measures at the end of this press release for a reconciliation to non-IFRS performance measures.

Michael G. Allen, President of Elevation stated, "Recently the Moss Mine has been begun to process ore coming from the East Pit, which is higher grade than what we have been recently mining.  We look forward to achieving continuous contributions from the East Pit going forward.  Our new interpretation of mineralization in the West Pit has begun to bear fruit with several long intercepts of gold mineralization received in this quarter."

Exploration Highlights

On May 3, 2022, Elevation announced the results of several drill holes completed in late 2021 and early 2022, including significant results in the vicinity of the West Pit.  Highlights from the release include the following drill holes:

For further information refer to the Company's news release dated May 3, 2022.

Outlook

The Company expects to complete several key capital projects during the remainder of 2022 including completing the construction of the new heap leach pad 2C, which is currently underway and expected to be completed in Q3 2022.  The Company will also look to complete two new monitoring wells and additional production wells in Q2 2022.  The monitoring wells are a requirement of an Aquifer Protection Permit, while the production water well project will secure water for operations as well as allow current operating water wells to be removed as part of the mine expansion at the Moss Mine.

The Company's operations continue to focus on overall efficiencies including drilling and blasting improvements that lead to increases in ore processing rates.  For Q1 2022, the mine averaged 7,977 stacked ore tonnes per day, an increase of 5.6% from the year ended December 31, 2021.  This rate increased further for the month of April 2022 to an average of 8,770 stacked ore tonnes per day as the Company continues to improve quality control for mine drilling and blasting and maintains meticulous oversight on scheduled crusher maintenance.  Mining operations also continue to progress, with higher-grade ore mined from the East Pit beginning in Q2 2022.

The Company continues its exploration program into Q2 2022 and will explore both along strike and within the footprint of the Moss Mine Project.  Additionally, the Company anticipates drilling other high priority regional targets in Q2/Q3 2022, depending on the availability of road construction contractors and drill rigs.
