EMX to Receive US$ 3 Million Milestone Payment for the Parks-Salyer Royalty Property in Arizona

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 4, 2022) – EMX Royalty Corporation (NYSE American: EMX) (TSXV: EMX) (FSE: 6E9) (the “Company” or “EMX”) is pleased to announce that it will receive a US$3 million milestone payment from Arizona Sonoran Copper Company, Inc. (TSX: ASCU) (“ASCU”) for the Parks-Salyer royalty property (the “Royalty Property”) in Arizona. The Royalty Property was held under a lease arrangement by EMX’s wholly owned subsidiary Bronco Creek Exploration Inc., and was transferred to ASCU via Assignment and Royalty Agreements (the “Agreements”) executed earlier this year (see EMX news release dated February 10, 2022). EMX’s Royalty Property covers 158 acres of ASCU’s Parks-Salyer copper project. The milestone payment results from ASCU’s maiden resource estimate for the Parks-Salyer project that exceeds thresholds for contained copper included within EMX’s Royalty Property footprint. The Company also retains a 1.5% net smelter return (“NSR”) royalty covering the Royalty Property.

EMX’s Parks-Salyer Royalty Property provides an example of a significant pre-production payment to the Company resulting from its copper porphyry royalty generation program in Arizona. The Property’s porphyry targets, which are concealed beneath post-mineral cover, were identified by EMX based upon structural geological assessments of historical exploration data. The open ground covering these targets was acquired by EMX at minimal cost. The 158 acres transferred to ASCU complemented the property position at its Parks-Salyer project, while providing EMX with pre-production payments and exploration, development, and royalty upside optionality at no additional cost to the Company.

Commercial Terms and Property Summary (all dollar amounts in USD)The Agreements provided for a one-time cash payment to EMX for the assignment of EMX’s rights covering the Property, as well as the 1.5% NSR royalty interest (ASCU may buy back 1% of the royalty for $500,000), work commitments, annual advance royalty (“AAR”) payments, and the $3 million milestone payment to EMX based upon declared resources totaling 200 million pounds or more of contained copper covered by EMX’s Royalty Property. ASCU’s (global) maiden resources for its Parks-Salyer project were disclosed in a news release dated September 28, 2022.

Parks-Salyer is located approximately five kilometers northwest of Casa Grande, Arizona and approximately 1.5 kilometers southwest of the historical Sacaton open pit copper mine. Sacaton was a porphyry copper-molybedenum mine operated by Asarco (1974-1984), and is now being advanced by ASCU as the PEA stage Cactus Project. The Parks-Salyer deposit lies beneath post-mineral gravels and represents a tilted, and fault-displaced portion of the Casa Grande-Santa Cruz porphyry system.

Qualified Person. Michael P. Sheehan, CPG, a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and employee of the Company, has reviewed, verified and approved the disclosure of the technical information contained in this news release.

Dolly Varden and Fury Announce the Sale of Dolly Varden Common Shares to an Institutional Investor

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 3, 2022) – Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSXV: DV) (OTCQX: DOLLF)(“Dolly Varden”) and Fury Gold Mines Ltd (“Fury”) are pleased to announce that Dolly Varden’s largest shareholder, Fury, with the approval and consent of Dolly Varden, has entered into an agreement to sell 17 million common shares at C$0.40 in the capital of the Dolly Varden (“Common Shares“), representing approximately 7.4% of the outstanding Common Shares, to a well known institutional investor (the “Transaction“).

Fury approached Dolly Varden about the sale of a portion of its Common Shares as a way for Fury to finance continued exploration at the Eau Claire and Éléonore South Joint Venture projects in Quebec and for general working capital. Following completion of the Transaction, Fury will continue to hold approximately 26% of the Common Shares and will be well capitalized for its upcoming exploration activities. While Dolly Varden will receive no proceeds from the Transaction, the company is pleased to be welcoming a new financial institutional investor.

Shawn Khunkhun, Chief Executive Officer of Dolly Varden said, “We are pleased to have been involved in discussions regarding the Transaction and to consent to the sale by Fury of a portion of its holdings in Dolly Varden to a new institutional investor for Dolly Varden. We believe the transaction is mutually beneficial for Dolly Varden and Fury as it brings another experienced institutional investor to Dolly Varden while providing Fury with funding for its Eau Claire and Éléonore South Joint Venture projects in Quebec. We consider Fury to be our partner in the exploration and development of the Company’s proposed Kitsault Valley Project, and we are happy to be able to support a transaction that benefits both companies.”

Tim Clark, CEO and Director of Fury, added, “We would like to thank Dolly Varden for the support on this mutually beneficial transaction. We view this as a prudent and strategic joint decision that will provide capitalization for Fury’s exciting potential at its Eau Claire and Éléonore South Joint Venture projects, and also add a significant institutional investor to Dolly Varden’s current share ownership. Going forward, Fury is still the largest investor in Dolly Varden at 26% and we remain confident in both their management team and projects. We believe that success in this industry is about working well with your partners and are thrilled about the opportunities ahead for both companies.”

Fury acquired the Common Shares of Dolly Varden in February 2022 when Dolly Varden acquired, through the acquisition of Fury’s wholly-owned subsidiary Homestake Resource Corporation, a 100% interest in the Homestake Ridge gold-silver project (the “Homestake Ridge Project“), located adjacent to the Dolly Varden Project in the Golden Triangle, British Columbia.

At that time, Dolly Varden and Fury also entered into an investor rights agreement (the “Investor Rights Agreement“) granting Fury certain board nomination and participation rights as well as providing for customary re-sale restrictions, voting and standstill conditions and a one-year hold period. Dolly Varden has provided its consent under the Investor Rights Agreement to the Transaction.

Dolly Varden understands that Fury intends to file a Form 45-102F1 Notice of Intention to Distribute Securities under Section 2.8 of National Instrument 45-102 – Resale of Securities later today to facilitate the sale. Closing of the Transaction is anticipated to occur on the business day following the expiry of the seven day notice period under NI 45-102. It is not anticipated that the purchaser will become a 10% or greater shareholder of Dolly Varden upon completion of the Transaction.

Upon completion of the Transaction, the ownership interest of Fury in Dolly Varden will be reduced from the current 76,504,590 Shares, representing 33% of the outstanding common shares of Dolly Varden, to 59,504,590 Dolly Varden Shares, representing 26% of the outstanding common shares of Dolly Varden. Fury will file an amendment to its current Early Warning Report on SEDAR to reflect its change in ownership position. Fury will continue to have two nominees on Dolly Varden’s board of directors under the Investor Rights Agreement following completion of the Transaction as Fury’s ownership will remain above the 20% level. Fury will continue to hold its shares in Dolly Varden for investment purposes and will evaluate its investment in Dolly Varden on ongoing basis and may increase or decrease its holdings in Dolly Varden in the future, subject to its rights and obligations under the Investor Rights Agreement, a copy of which has been filed under Fury’s and Dolly Varden’s SEDAR profile.

Riverside Resources Regains 100% Control of the La Union Gold-Silver-Zinc Project After More than US$500,000 in Partner Funded Exploration and Consolidation Work

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 3, 2022) – Riverside Resources Inc. (TSXV: RRI) (OTCQB: RVSDF) (FSE: 5YY) (“Riverside” or the “Company”), has been reimbursed for past taxes and fees with more than USD$500,000 of new mineral exploration and consolidation work completed to-date as per the option agreement announced in May 2022 with Hochschild Mining Corp. Exploration work at La Union Project (the “Project”) has returned gold (“Au”) values greater than two ounces per ton (“oz/t”), silver (“Ag”) values over 20 oz/t and up to six percent zinc (“Zn”) (see press release dated October 6, 2021). There are four primary drill targets that were defined from 2022 exploration programs, however Minera Hochschild Mexico SA de CV (“Hochschild”) has decided not to proceed with the option and further exploration spending at La Union for corporate strategy reasons.

Riverside’s President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, commented: “We appreciate the collaboration with Hochschild and the contributions in advancing La Union. The Project has clear exploration upside and while the timing doesn’t currently work to continue with this partnership, we still see an opportunity to create significant value at La Union and will integrate all of the data and evaluate new partnership opportunities in the near future.”

Riverside is now free to move ahead with seeking other partners for the 26 km sq project located in the favorable limestone carbonate replacement (CRD) belt of western Sonora, Mexico. The Union Project displays mineralized gold-silver-zinc-lead rich mantos (tabular bodies) hosted in the Precambrian limestone strata with mineralized chimneys cutting upward into the Cambrian limestone with a surrounding halo of alteration, dolomitization, and silicification. Furthermore, the previous mining activities did not treat sulfides at the time, providing another untested mineralization style for future drilling.

The latest exploration investment helped to define the main structural and lithological controls of the mineralization which is fundamental for successful exploration of the Union district. Technical work has defined NNW-oriented subvertical structures that acted as conducts for mineralizing fluids and which interacted with thick (> 200m) highly reactive carbonate host rocks (Caborca and Arpa Formations) delineating three main CRD target areas (Figure 1).

  • Target 1: This area displays a mineral and alteration footprint larger than 2 x 1.5 km, with new geochemistry yielding 7 – 10g/t Au, 170 – 279 g/t Ag and Zn ranging from 1.2 – 11.6 % (Figure 1).
  • Target 2: New surface geochemistry in this area returned 2.5 – 7 g/t Au, up to 73 g/t Ag and 3.2 % Zn.
  • Target 3: is close to la Famosa Mine where the previous sampling returned ~2 oz/t Au, ~26 oz/t Ag, and > 4% Zn (Oct 6, 2021, news release).

Newly completed regional and local structural geology has been aided through stratigraphic geologic work by the Company which provides a district-wide targeting cross-section that helps for planning future drilling as shown below.

Figure 1 – New geologic map and gold assay data from rock sampling defining primary target areas and property wide N-S cross section showing the mantos and chimneys in the Precambrian-Cambrian carbonate stratigraphy.

To view an enhanced version of Figure 1, please visit:

Exploration work completed to-date includes extensive field mapping, sampling, and geochemistry. The newly mapped and sampled areas show alteration features typical of CRD targets and particularly the gossan oxidation of potential sulfide bodies at shallow depths (<100m) that remain wide open for relatively low-risk, high-potential exploration. The Company has been able to link various units into the broader stratigraphic units of the Sierra El Viejo and overall Caborca Geologic Terrane, which had previous scientific investigations, but limited CRD drill testing so far sets up the project for immediate further exploration discovery. To that effect, a first phase of drilling could include 10 drillholes to test the continuity of the gossans and target areas along the NNW corridor shown in Figure 1 above. Therefore, the Project is now nicely set up for the next exploration steps, which could include geophysics and drilling, and the Company looks forward to exploring new partnership opportunities.

Qualified Person & QA/QC:
The scientific and technical data contained in this news release pertaining to the La Union Project was reviewed and approved by Julian Manco, P.Geo, a non-independent qualified person to Riverside Resources focusing on the work in Sonora, Mexico, who is responsible for ensuring that the information provided in this news release is accurate and who acts as a “qualified person” under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

Rock samples from the exploration program discussed above at the La Union Project were taken to the Bureau Veritas Laboratories in Hermosillo, Mexico for fire assaying for gold. The rejects remained with Bureau Veritas in Mexico while the pulps were transported to Bureau Veritas laboratory in Vancouver, BC, Canada for 45 element ICP/ES-MS analysis using 4-acid digestion methods. A QA/QC program was implemented as part of the sampling procedures for the exploration program. Standard samples were randomly inserted into the sample stream prior to being sent to the laboratory.

About Riverside Resources Inc.:
Riverside is a well-funded exploration company driven by value generation and discovery. The Company has over $4M in cash, no debt and less than 80M shares outstanding with a strong portfolio of gold-silver and copper assets and royalties in North America. Riverside has extensive experience and knowledge operating in Mexico and Canada and leverages its large database to generate a portfolio of prospective mineral properties. In addition to Riverside’s own exploration spending, the Company also strives to diversify risk by securing joint-venture and spin-out partnerships to advance multiple assets simultaneously and create more chances for discovery.

The Nikolai Project is located within Alaska’s Delta Mining District, approximately 130 kilometers by road south of Delta Junction and approximately 280 kilometers southeast of Fairbanks. The Eureka zone consists of disseminated Ni-Cu-Co-PGE mineralization initially discovered by a subsidiary of INCO, and further expanded by Pure Nickel Inc., as reported in their press releases ranging between 2007-2014.

Highlights from the mineralogical assessment include:

  • 94% of the nickel within the CEZ is contained within nickel sulfide (pentlandite) and nickel alloy minerals.
  • 72% of the copper within the CEZ is contained within copper sulfides (chalcopyrite, bornite, chalcocite).
  • 80% of the nickel within the UEZ is contained within nickel sulfide (pentlandite) and nickel alloy minerals.
  • 75% of the copper within the UEZ is contained within copper sulfides (chalcopyrite, bornite, chalcocite).

Millrock President and CEO Gregory Beischer commented: “These are encouraging results! For large tonnage – low-grade deposits, it is crucial that potential recovery rates of the valuable metals are well understood. This first-pass work shows that much of the nickel and copper is in mineral form that allows strong recoveries with common processing methods.”

Methodology – Metal Content
Two composite samples from hole FL-003 were created for the UEZ and CEZ. Each composite was comprised of six quarter-core sample intervals spread across the mineralized zones. The anticipated metals content for each of the composited samples was calculated using historical assays from the work done by INCO in 1997 (Table 1). Historical logging and sampling of the INCO drill core was done under the direct supervision of Gregory Beischer, the qualified person responsible for the contents of this disclosure. Historical assays were performed at Chemex, Inc. in Reno, Nevada. Chemical analysis of the composites for this study were completed prior to the mineralogical study to validate the historical assay results completed by INCO (Table 1). Concentrations determined by INCO and by Millrock were found to be similar.

Methodology Mineralogical Study
The mineral processing work was completed by the Bureau Veritas Metallurgical Laboratory in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. The individual composites were ground to ~125µm following standard grind calibration procedures. The ground composites were sized using wet screens and a cyclone sizer, and then sized into four fractions for chemical analysis and QEMSCAN analysis. QEMSCAN Particle Mineral Analysis was conducted on each size fraction of the sized composites to determine nickel and copper deportment and fragmentation characteristics.

Initial Mineralogical Study Results
Nickel sulfide and nickel alloys accounted for ~94% of the total nickel within the CEZ composite sample (only 5.1% of total nickel in silicates). Pentlandite was the principal nickel bearing sulfide and carried ~92% of the total nickel in the CEZ composite. Pentlandite content was measured at 0.68% by weight. The remaining potentially recoverable nickel was in the nickel alloys and nickel metal, which accounted for ~2% of the total nickel. Sulfur is higher in the CEZ (1.32%) and there is an increased amount of pyrrhotite (1.78% by weight). Interlocking between pentlandite and pyrrhotite was rarely observed, which will be favorable to the pentlandite separation from pyrrhotite.

Nickel sulfide and nickel alloys accounted for ~80% of the total nickel within the UEZ composite sample (18.9% of total nickel in silicates). Pentlandite was the principal nickel bearing sulfide and carried ~64% of the total nickel in the CEZ composite. Pentlandite content was measured at 0.44% by weight. The remaining potentially recoverable nickel was in the form of nickel alloy and nickel metal, which accounted for ~16% of the total nickel. Sulfur is lower in the UEZ (0.49%), likely due to the decrease in pyrrhotite. These results are summarized in Table 2 below.

Copper sulfides accounted for ~71% to 75% of the total copper within the CEZ and UEZ composites. Chalcopyrite is the dominant copper sulfide and accounts for ~67% to 71% of the copper in the composite samples. Bornite, chalcocite, cuprite, malachite, and azurite were also present, in the composite samples. The remainder of the copper (~24% to 28%) was present in valleriite (Cu-Fe-Mg sulphate). The copper sulfide contents were 0.31% by weight in the CEZ and 0.14% by weight in the UEZ. These results are summarized in Table 3 below.

Rover Metals Receives Exchange Approval for IML Critical Minerals Project Acquisition, NT, Canada

Rover Metals Corp.
Rover Metals Corp.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FSE:4XO) (“Rover” or the “Company”) announces that further to its releases of August 16, 2022, September 14, 2022, and September 22, 2022, the Company has now received approval from the Toronto Venture Exchange for the Indian Mountain Lake (“IML”) option purchase agreement, and the milestone payments contained therein.

IML VMS Project
The IML VMS Project has had exploration dating back to the 1940s and has a historical resource spread across four zones on the project. The BB Zone and Kennedy Lake Zone have a combined historic resource of 1,400,000 tons grading 10% combined zinc and lead with 3.5 OPT (ounces per ton) of silver*. Approximately 900 metres west of the BB Zone, the Kennedy Lake West Zone has a historic resource of 610,000 tons grading 1.15% copper*. About 8 km southeast of the BB Zone, the Susu Lake Zone, has a historical resource consisting of 142,500 tons grading 0.95% copper*.

The property is located approximately 195 km east-northeast of Yellowknife, NT, off the eastern arm of Great Slave Lake. Seasonal access relies upon fixed or rotor wing support. A right of way was cleared to the Project from Thompson Landing in the 1970s. If this right of way were to be brushed out, it would provide barge access at Thompson Landing, from Yellowknife, with ground transportation, considerably lowering any logistical costs. Future Government of Canada federally funded hydro-energy infrastructure could come close to the Project if the Taltson Hydro Dam expansion proceeds through the eastern arm of Great Slave Lake into Yellowknife. At the southwest-end of Great Slave Lake, Osisko Metals is gearing up to reopen the Pine Point Zinc-Lead Mine. At nearby Hay River, NT, there is a rail line to the Teck Resources Zinc Refinery in Trail, BC.

*These resources are historic in nature. Further drilling is needed to bring them up to CIM Definition Standards. The historic data has not been verified by Rover. The historic information is provided in the 2103 Assessment Report for Indian Mountain Lake which is in public record with the Government of the Northwest Territories.

Technical information has been approved by Gary Vivian, M.Sc., P.Geo., QP for the purposes of NI 43-101.

New Website
An updated Corporate Fact Sheet, reflecting the addition of Nevada Lithium, is now available on our new website and a new corporate presentation will be available shortly.

Judson Culter, CEO at Rover Metals, states “Zinc and Copper, along with Lithium are the future, and fundamental to the growth of our company. However, we’re not abandoning our precious metals roots. Greenstone belts in northern Canada are well known for their abundance of gold and silver. The IML greenstone belt is comprised of 31,000 acres, and the historic base metal resource is coming from just three percent of the land package. The historic BB Zone and historic Kennedy Lake Zone include a historic resource of 4,900,000 ounces of high-grade silver. We believe the existing silver endowment is indicative of the potential for the remainder of the 30,000 acres of greenstone belt.”

About Rover Metals
Rover is a publicly traded junior mining company that trades on the TSXV under symbol ROVR, on the OTCQB under symbol ROVMF, and on the FSE under symbol 4XO. The Company is now developing a diverse portfolio of mineral resource projects: (1) Nevada Claystone Lithium; (2) Zinc-Copper-Lead-Silver in NT, Canada; as well as (3) Gold in NT, Canada. The Company is exclusive to the mining jurisdictions of Canada and the U.S.

Collective Mining Makes its Fourth Grassroots Discovery at its Guayabales Project by Drilling 102.2 Metres at 1.53 g/t Gold Equivalent at the Trap Target

  • Three widely spaced reconnaissance holes up to 600 metres apart were drilled to test the Trap target (“Trap”), a north-northwest trending structurally controlled corridor with evidence of overprinting porphyry veins and late-stage carbonate base metal (“CBM”) veins. All three holes intersected highly altered porphyry rocks with multiple sheeted and stockwork veinlets, with hole TRC-1 yielding the most robust results as follows:
  • Recent geological mapping and sampling has materially extended the strike length of the Trap target to 1.75 kilometres, and it remains open in both directions along strike for further expansion.

TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2022 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce diamond drill hole and rock chip assay results from reconnaissance work, which outlines a new discovery referred to as the Trap mineralized corridor (“Trap”). Trap is located approximately four kilometres to the north-northeast of the Company’s flagship Apollo discovery and is one of seven grassroots generated porphyry and porphyry-related targets at its flagship Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. Apollo is a newly discovered high-grade copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia with previously announced intercepts including the discovery hole APC-2, which intersected 207.15 metres @ 2.68 g/t AuEq and APC-8, which intersected 265.75 metres @ 2.44 g/t gold equivalent (See press releases dated August 10th and September 13th respectively). As part of its fully funded 20,000+ metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo target.

“This new and early-stage discovery at the Trap target highlights the immensely prospective nature of our Guayabales project. With slightly more than one year of exploration under our belt, our young Company, which is anchored by a core team of talented individuals, has drilled four new grassroot discoveries. Our priority remains the drilling and expanding of our flagship Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target, but our reconnaissance exploration teams continue to identify new zones and targets with different styles of mineralization located within a four-kilometre by four-kilometre area hosting a cluster of porphyry and porphyry-related style targets. I am impressed with the continued drilling success at the Guayabales project. Our robust rate in making new discoveries at the project is virtually unparalleled in the mining industry and is a strong testament to the mineral endowment of this emerging mining district,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1 – 3)

The Company recently completed three scout diamond drill holes plus additional channel chip sampling and geological mapping at the Trap target, a newly discovered structural corridor with details as follows:

  • Geology mapping and rock sampling highlights a north-northwest trending structural corridor superimposed on earlier porphyry related mineralization event and all hosted within quartz diorite rocks. Rock sampling of sporadic outcrops along the 1.75-kilometre mineralized corridor yielded 32 samples grading over 1 g/t gold (range 1 g/t Au to 10.7 g/t Au) with silver values up to 687 g/t and copper values up to 3.7%.

  • Three scout drill holes were completed in the central (TRC-1) and southern portion (VICE-1 & 2) of the trap corridor and returned the following significant intercepts:

In each hole the mineralization relates to an early gold-copper (chalcopyrite) phase linked with potassic alteration which is overprinted by a younger precious-polymetallic vein system associated with intense sericite alteration resulting in a white bleaching of the rock fabric. Veinlet systems include sheeted and stockwork forms in multiple different orientations.

  • Trap remains open in all directions and further reconnaissance work continues along this zone. A follow up drill program will ensue once additional data is collected, and targets are further refined.
  • The Company continues to prioritize the Apollo discovery due to the significant results intercepted to date with diamond drilling including hole APC-2, which intersected 207.15 metres @ 2.68 g/t AuEq and hole APC-8, which intersected 265.75 metres @ 2.44 g/t gold equivalent as announced in press releases dated August 10th, 2022, and September 13th respectively). Assay results are anticipated in the near term for four additional holes from Apollo with the following encouraging visual intercepts for two of the holes that targeted and successfully intersected the Main Breccia discovery:
