The Difference Between Signal and Noise

Dec 3, 2022

I have no idea of how many people write professionally about investing in resource stocks and the metals. I am well aware that there are tens of thousands of punters expressing their opinions on the various chat boards. Most of them are idiots. But then many of the professional writers are idiots, too, trying to feed people’s fantasies. That’s what you get from TV preachers and all politicians (with perhaps the exception of Alberta’s Premier and Pierre Poilievre)

I write books about investing and then I pretty much give them away. You can pick up Nobody Knows Anything and Basic Investing in Resource Stocks for $.99 in the electronic version. If you can’t afford the $.99 you probably are wasting my time and yours because you are too stupid to understand simple concepts. So I will go over it one more time.

There is signal and there is noise.

GATA, conspiracies, gold and silver manipulation, Bill Murphy, Ted Butler and all of the cliptocurrencies are noise. Nothing they say will ever put a penny in your pocket unless it is by accident. There is no time in history where any of them issued both an accurate buy signal and a sell signal that was based on either facts or logic. You can howl at the moon all you wish about how Crimex is stealing but all you are doing is whining.

You can’t make money from noise. Saying that gold and silver are manipulated is akin to saying the sun rises in the east. All financial markets are manipulated and always will be.

Signal on the other hand is based on both facts and logic. If you will bother learning the basics and have any ability to think for yourself you can make a lot of money from the chumps whining about Bitcon and Crimex. I go into it in detail in my two investment books and if you haven’t read them, it means you are the chump that my readers and I will profit by your stupidity.

I did an interview on September 1st and talked about silver. Silver touched $17.56 as the low.

(Click on images to enlarge)

Fast-forward three months and now we had silver at $21.66 on November 24th where it touched a high of $21.66. Between September 1st and November 24th silver climbed 23%. That’s a great move and silver is even higher today but I wanted to show the November 24th price for a reason that I will get into.

I said a month before silver and gold hit their lows that it was coming. I nailed the bottom in silver; gold drifted lower for another four weeks but clearly bottomed on September 28th. For three months I have been trying to convince my readers that low prices are an opportunity. How much simpler can it get?

Stocks go up and down.

When they are cheap you should buy and when they are dear you should sell. It’s in the frigging books. The only people I know who make money on a consistent basis are contrarians. All you have to do is determine what the mob is doing and do the opposite. It is so simple most people can’t come to grips with the concept. Measure the sentiment. When everyone is bullish, you should sell. When everyone is bearish, you should buy. Low prices are not a problem, they are an opportunity.

My favorite sentiment indicator is the DSI that happens to be on sale until December 15th. As valuable as it is, there are other sentiment indicators that may provide other information. I like the $BPGDM chart of the Gold Miners Bullish Percentage Index. It gave a clear signal of a bottom at the end of September just in time to nail the low in gold.

Another signal that I observe but rarely see a clear and convincing signal is the Premium/Discount chart of the Sprott Physical Silver Trust. I used that chart in 2011 to pick the top in silver to the day and when I looked at it recently I saw something very exciting. If you look at the two-year chart it seems that just recently the PSLV is selling at the biggest discount in over two years. In other words the traders in PSLV were highly bearish.

On November 25th the PSLV was selling at the biggest discount, 5.12% since the crash of 2020. Do you remember what silver did after that signal in March of 2020 during the Covid fiasco crash? It went from well under $12 an ounce to almost $30 in the next eleven months. That’s a 150% gain in silver. You almost never see those kinds of moves in the metals. The PSLV is giving a similar signal today but from $17.56.

The low point on that chart is November 25th.

There are few people I track the predictions of mainly because I don’t want to confuse myself. But one of the people I have a ton of time for is Tom McClellan of The McClellan Report. Here is part of what he said just yesterday.

December 01, 2022

Gold prices have moved up by almost $200 off of the October lows. Ordinarily that would bring a response by investors to start buying into GLD and IAU, the big gold bullion ETFs. But they are not doing that (yet), and that is really interesting.

The normal behavior by investors is to buy into these ETFs when gold is rising, and sell out of them when gold prices fall. Extremes of either buying or selling can be useful indications of a sentiment extreme, worthy of a top or bottom for prices. That is how things normally work.
. . .

Given the big jump in gold prices since October, we should expect that public sentiment toward gold should be turning more bullish, but it is not. Investors are still avoiding these ETFs, which means that their bearishness is more firmly rooted. That is actually bullish for gold prices, because to get a top for gold prices we would expect to see investors clamoring to get into gold. They are not at that point yet, which conveys the message that gold is going to have to trend higher for a lot longer to get sentiment to change.

I did find it exceptionally interesting that one of the smartest people I know has come to exactly the same conclusion I have. If you would like to fund your retirement you can do that in the near future. You merely need to learn to think for yourself and understand how contrarian investing works. Figure out what the mob is up to and do the opposite. It’s that easy.

Provenance Conducts New Exploration at Its Eldorado Property as It Seeks to Expand Target Areas

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 30, 2022) – Provenance Gold Corp. (CSE: PAU) (OTCQB: PVGDF) (the “Company” or “Provenance“) is pleased to announce it has recently completed rock chip sampling and other field work at its Eldorado property in Eastern Oregon. Sampling focused on areas that had exposures of available rock for sampling in areas of significant soil cover. In addition, the Company is also in the process of reviewing, compiling and evaluating all previous historic sampling programs at Eldorado including soil sampling, rock chip sampling, trench sampling and drill hole sampling.

The Eldorado area has been the focus of considerable historic placer mining and modern era exploration by at least five mining companies. All this activity is extensive, and evidence of both placer mining and drilling / trenching remains in every corner of the property. The attached Figure below shows a seamed 1998 aerial photograph over recent satellite imagery which validates the considerable work that has been done to date on the property.

Figure 1 – Shows a Seamed 1998 Aerial Photograph Over Recent Satellite Imagery

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

The Company’s current field work has focused on collecting 38 rock outcrop samples to assess gold and silver values over a broad area to both confirm anomalies previously identified by past operators and to give the Company its own data base of surface sampling results. The new sampling along with integration of historic rock chip assays, trenching assays and soil auger assays should help define the full potential of the project. This work should better define the project’s footprint and will provide valuable guidance in planning future drill programs once fully permitted.

The Company has in its possession, a large amount of historic assay information that was obtained from several of the past operators, which includes rock chip samples, 43 trenches and 1,081 auger soil samples. These samples, along with results from our current sampling and “top of bedrock” assay samples from the drill holes, will provide a significant gold anomaly map to be used for future drilling.

Cross-section studies of the historic drill holes have identified areas within the historically identified gold system that were missed by the historic drilling. Confirmation drilling of these areas could add mineralized tonnage to the overall gold inventory. Some of the outcrop sampling is focusing on these untested areas.

Additionally, rock outcrops are not abundant on the property, which is mostly covered by soil. The outcrops that have been sampled are all strongly altered. Provenance believes these exposures may represent extensions of the mineral system and sampling these outcrops should verify that interpretation.

The Company expects assay results from this program in the coming weeks and completion of the full assay compilation will be released to the public as it becomes available.

Rauno Perttu, Provenance Chairman said, “I look forward to drilling to confirm the historic work, and also to begin to expand the size and likely the grade of the system. With in-fill drilling and deeper drilling, I believe we can significantly increase the magnitude of the system.”

“Eldorado already holds a significant historical inventory of gold as calculated by a reputable engineering firm in 1990,” stated Steve Craig, project manager. “We believe we will be ready to drill with target confidence in 2023 following our extensive compilation and evaluation of all of the historic data that the Company has in its possession.”

Dolly Varden Silver Junior Mining Precious Metals

Dolly Varden Silver Intersects 27.44 g/t Au and 463 g/t Ag over 9.16m, Including 75.13 g/t Au and 2,337 g/t Ag over 1.77m at Homestake Ridge

Dolly Varden Silver, Proven and Probable

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 29, 2022) – Dolly Varden Silver Corporation (TSXV: DV) (OTCQX: DOLLF) (the “Company” or “Dolly Varden“) is pleased to announce drill results from the 100%-owned Homestake Ridge property in BC’s Golden Triangle. The objective of drilling during 2022 at the Homestake Main and Homestake Silver deposits was to expanded multiple, subparallel mineralized zones and to upgrade Inferred Resources.

Highlights include (intervals shown are core length):

  • HR22-314: 4.27 g/t Au and 64 g/t Ag (5.10 g/t AuEq*) over 16.06 meters including 18.76 g/t Au and 193 g/t Ag (21.49 g/t AuEq*) over 3.08 meters
  • HR22-322: 6.47 g/t Au and 27 g/t Ag (5.83 g/t AuEq*) over 6.00 meters
  • HR22-325: 7.18g/t Au and 30 g/t Ag, 0.49% Cu (8.26 g/t AuEq*) over 10.00 meters including 20.20 g/t Au and 68 g/t Ag (21.13 g/t AuEq*) over 1.47 meters
  • HR22-328: 27.44 g/t Au and 463 g/t Ag (33.34 g/t AuEq*) over 9.16 meters including 0.50 meters 216.00 g/t Au and 113 g/t Ag, 0.48% Cu (218.06 AuEq*) over 0.50 meters
  • HR22-330: 5.68 g/t Au and 147 g/t Ag (7.48 g/t AuEq*) over 15.00 meters, including 54.10 g/t Au, 4,890 g/t Ag and 0.11% Cu (113.25 g/t AuEq*) over 0.39 meters
  • HR22-337: 3.79 g/t Au and 2 g/t Ag (3.84 g/t AuEq*) over 21.00 meters including 11.15 g/t Au and 5.00 g/t Ag (11.22 AuEq*) over 2.00 meters
  • HR22-339: 14.56 g/t Au and 4.00 g/t Ag (14.63 g/t AuEq*) over 2.50 meters

“Our 2022 drill program has truly been exceptional. The recently acquired Homestake Ridge Deposit has delivered more high-grade gold and silver values, commonly with strong copper mineralization. These intercepts demonstrate strong continuity of mineralization over wide intervals, similar to the recently announced high-grade results at the Wolf and Kitsol Deposits, located six kilometers to the south. We eagerly anticipate additional assays from all of Dolly Varden’s Deposits, as well as new exploration targets drilled during the 2022 program,” said Shawn Khunkhun, President and CEO.

These results are primarily infill drilling from areas of Current Inferred Mineral Resources and suggest that the higher-grade gold-silver lenses may be continuous over more extensive areas than previously interpreted. In addition, the drilling has generated new targets down-dip the Homestake Main deposit along the projected plunge of the higher grade shoots that are wide open for expansion. Oriented core was used on all drill holes on the project and this detailed structural data is also being integrated in to the geological model to further increase confidence. Additional assays from the Homestake Main and Silver Deposits are pending

Complete Assay results for the first batch of drilling results at Homestake Main are in Table 1.

Figure 1. Location along Dolly Varden’s Kitsault Valley trend of Deposits

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

The Homestake Ridge deposits are interpreted as structurally-controlled, multi-phase epithermal vein and breccia system hosted in Jurassic aged Hazelton Volcanic rocks. Mineralization consists of pyrite and chalcopyrite in a breccia matrix within a silica breccia vein system (see Figure 2). The northwest orientation of the main Homestake structural trend appears to have numerous subparallel internal structures that are interpreted to form the controls for higher grade gold shoots within a broader low grade zone at the Homestake Main deposit. The main structural corridor dips steeply to the northeast (see Figure 3 and 4).

Collective Mining Significantly Expands the Main Breccia Discovery at Apollo and Drills Near Surface High-Grade Mineralization Including 168.6 Metres at 2.91 g/t Gold Equivalent

  • Drill hole APC-17, a significant step-out hole to the north, intersected two zones of mineralization within the Main Breccia discovery at the Apollo target. The shallow zone, which was intersected directly below where the Main Breccia daylights at surface cut the following interval:
  • The second zone encountered in hole APC-17 cut the longest intercept of continuous mineralization within the Main Breccia discovery drilled to date with results as follows:
  • Drill hole APC-17, which was terminated at 912.8 metres due to rig capacity, bottomed in strong mineralization with the final 2.75 metres averaged 1.56 g/t gold, 9 g/t silver and 0.03% copper.
  • Drill hole APC-18 intersected near surface and high-grade copper-silver-gold mineralization approximately 300 metres to the north of the near surface intercept in APC-17. The mineralized breccia in this zone is strongly overprinted by numerous zones of carbonate, base metal veins with assay results as follows:
  • With the result of step out hole APC-17 and recently announced visuals from step out hole APC-22, the Main Breccia discovery now measures up to 385 metres along strike by 350 metres in width (previously 190 metres) and has been extended down to a vertical depth of 825 metres below surface (previously 500 metres). The discovery remains wide open for expansion and further step-out holes are currently being designed.
  • Three rigs continue to drill at Apollo with holes APC-19 through APC-26 completed and holes APC-27 through APC-29 underway.  Additional assay results are anticipated in the near term.

TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2022 /CNW/ –  Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from four additional holes drilled at the Apollo target (“Apollo”) within the Company’s Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. The Main Breccia discovery at Apollo is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-gold-silver porphyry-related breccia target. As part of its fully funded 23,000 metre drill program for 2022, there are currently three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo target.

“The intersection of high-grade and shallow mineralization at Apollo demonstrates the excellent metal endowment of the Main Breccia and most importantly, the dimensions of the system continue to expand and clearly point to the fact that we are dealing with a large-scale discovery. It is truly remarkable to drill a 912-metre-long hole that bottoms in mineralization. Finally, the shallow, higher grade intercepts encountered in APC-17 and APC-18 are more than 300 metres apart and confirms that the southern portion of the deposit is where the system comes to surface. As a result, we are about to start construction of a new drill pad located between the two shallow intercepts in order to start defining the shallow portion of the Main Breccia mineralized system,” commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1–3)

Nineteen diamond drill holes with accompanying assay results have now been announced at Apollo and a further eleven holes are outstanding. The Company recently completed four drill holes; one northerly directed, step out hole (APC-17), to test for mineralized extensions to the Main Breccia discovery, a second shallow hole drilled southwesterly to define extensions of newly discovered mineralized breccia outcrops located in the southern portion of the deposit and two fringe holes drilled at shallow angles to the west of the Main Breccia discovery.

Drill hole APC-17 was drilled approximately due north to a maximum depth of 912.60 metres. The hole intersected three mineralized zones: 72.3 metres of mineralization beginning at 118.20 metres down hole (100m vertical), 11.65 metres of mineralized breccia from 252.6 metres (220m vertical) and another 547.65 metres of mineralization from 365.15 metres down hole (330m vertical) to the end of the hole at 912.80m (825m vertical).  The hole terminated while still in mineralized breccia due to limitations of the drill rig. Total cumulative mineralization in this diamond drill hole was 628.3 metres and is the most mineralization drilled in a single hole to date into the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo. The shallow intercept is hosted within angular porphyry related breccia containing chalcopyrite (1-2%) with pyrite and pyrrhotite and is located directly beneath recently discovered mineralization outcropping at surface. The deeper and longer intercept is also hosted within angular porphyry related breccia with the matrix filled with pyrite, some chalcopyrite and overprinting carbonate base metal veins (“CBM”)The following results are highlighted:

  • 72.3 metres @ 2.57 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 1.00 g/t gold, 28 g/t silver and 0.63% copper (100 metres vertical).
  • 11.65 metres @ 1.88 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 1.80 g/t gold, 4 g/t silver and 0.05% copper (220m vertical).
  • 547.65 metres @ 1.03 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 0.76 g/t gold, 14 g/t silver and 0.04% copper (330m vertical).

Drill hole APC-18 was drilled in a southwest direction and intersected shallow, copper-silver-gold mineralization from 136.05 metres to 304.65 metres with the hole terminating at a final depth of 499.05 metres. The mineralized breccia contains a matrix of chalcopyrite and pyrite is strongly overprinted by numerous zones of CBM veins hosting sphalerite and galena. The hole was drilled below outcrops of breccia mineralization in the south-central portion of the deposit with assay results as follows:

  • 168.6 metres @ 2.91 g/t gold equivalent consisting of 0.98 g/t gold, 69 g/t silver and 0.5% copper (85 metres vertical).

With the result of APC-17 and recently announced visuals from APC-22, the potential total volume of rock hosting the Main Breccia discovery within it has approximately tripled in size with the dimensions now measuring 385 metres along strike by 350 metres width by 825 metres depth versus prior dimensions of 385 metres x 190 metres x 500 metres. The discovery remains wide open for expansion and further step-out holes are currently being designed.

Holes APC-15 and APC-16 were drilled at shallow angles on the western periphery of the main breccia body. APC-15 was drilled to the northwest and intersected mineralized crackle breccia returning 56.05 metres @ 0.57 g/t gold equivalent from 68.6 metres (55 metres vertical). This is a new mineralized area outside of the Main Breccia discovery at Apollo. APC-16 was also drilled outside the Main Breccia discovery to the southwest and intersected 500 parts per million copper in crackle breccia from 200 metres and until the end of the hole at 303.35 metres. The Company believes that both APC-15 and APC-16 may have drilled over the top of the Main Breccia discovery in these locations.

Three rigs continue to drill at Apollo with additional assay results anticipated in the near term.

The Apollo target area, as defined to date by surface mapping, rock sampling and copper and molybdenum soil geochemistry, covers an 800 metres X 700 metres area. The Apollo target area hosts the Company’s new Main Breccia discovery plus a vein system located above and on the eastern flank of the Main Breccia discovery and the Northern Breccia discovery located 250 metres to the north of the Main Breccia. Multiple additional untested breccia, porphyry and vein targets have been generated and will be drilled in due course. The overall Apollo target area also remains open for further expansion.

Goldshore Intersects Additional High-Grade Shears in the QES Zone at the Moss Lake Gold Project

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 28, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Moss Lake Gold Project“).


  • Results for seven holes, drilled to expand the coverage of the high-grade shears in the QES Zone, have confirmed higher-grade shear-hosted gold mineralization within a large volume of well mineralized diorites. These results are all within the $1500 Whittle pit that constrains the current resource and identifies new high-grade shears. Best intercepts include:
    • 1.51 g/t Au over 6.0m from 502.0m depth in MQD-22-075 and
    • 1.47 g/t Au over 30.1m from 530.0m
    • 8.45 g/t Au over 5.0m from 576m depth in MQD-22-076 including
      • 36.9 g/t Au over 1.0m from 577m
    • 1.87 g/t Au over 6.75m from 602.25m
    • 1.31 g/t Au over 14.15m from 544.0m depth in MQD-22-080
    • 2.07 g/t Au over 6.0m from 422.0m depth in MQD-22-085 and
    • 1.07 g/t Au over 15.0m from 457.0m
    • 1.26 g/t Au over 7.15m from 573.85m
    • 1.07 g/t Au over 24.7m from 369.0m depth in MQD-22-087 and
    • 2.15 g/t Au over 5.0m from 489.0m
    • 1.75 g/t Au over 8.05m from 513.95m
    • 2.11 g/t Au over 30.75m from 536.9m including
      • 11.5 g/t Au over 3.1m from 555.2m
    • 1.31 g/t Au over 63.6m from 427.0m depth in MQD-22-090A
      • 2.07 g/t Au over 32.0m from 439.0m
  • new parallel mineralized shear structure has been discovered 150m south of the main QES system containing high grade mineralization within a sheared intermediate volcanic package with best intercepts of:
    • 3.44 g/t Au over 5.8m from 246.4m depth in MQD-22-080
    • 1.22 g/t Au over 4.0m from 206.0m depth in MQD-22-087
    • 1.15 g/t Au over 7.3m from 75.0m depth in MQD-22-090A

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “The results from these drill holes in the QES Zone are part of a 52-hole data set that was not included in the recent mineral resource estimate. They confirm our belief that there are additional high-grade shear zones within the deposit that will potentially add to the shear domain component of the mineral resource that we anticipate will be prioritized in the mining schedule when we move towards conducting a preliminary economic analysis next year.”

Technical Overview

Figure 1 shows the better intercepts in plain view and Figure 2 is a typical section through hole MQD-22-087. Table 1 shows the significant intercepts. Table 2 shows the drill hole locations.

Results have been received for six holes that have infilled areas of the QES Zone that are between sections drilled by historic holes with collar survey problems. As a result, they will replace the low-confidence historic holes in the upcoming resource model update.

A seventh hole was drilled to the southeast of the QES Zone to investigate two historical showing along a parallel structure of the QES Zone but did not intersect significant mineralization.

As with the historic holes, these holes intersected several broad zones of low-grade mineralization within the altered diorite intrusion host. Examples include 0.77 g/t Au over 83m from 493m depth in MQD-22-075; 0.41 g/t Au over 32.45m from 437.55m and 0.71 g/t Au over 131.1m from 493m in MQD-22-076; 0.54 g/t Au over 102m from 476m and 0.39 g/t Au over 27.95m from 643m in MQD-22-080; 0.78 g/t Au over 70m from 419m and 0.50 g/t Au over 28.75m from 521.25m in MQD-22-085; 0.50 g/t Au over 115.9m from 408.1m in MQD-22-087; and 0.48 g/t Au over 27.45m from 552.05m in MQD-22-090A.

All these low-grade zones occur as envelopes to higher-grade structures that form a three-dimensional, anastomosing shear network that has developed in response to strain on the altered diorite intrusion. Results include the broad zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization shown in the highlights (e.g., 1.31 g/t Au over 63.6m from 427m depth in MQD-22-090A) and several narrow high-grade intervals, including 10.1 g/t Au over 0.7m from 545.8m and 36.9 g/t Au over 1m from 577m in MQD-22-076; 10.0 g/t Au over 1m from 427m in MQD-22-085; 20.6 g/t Au over 0.9m from 370.65m, 28.3 g/t Au over 0.3m from 540.3m and 11.5 g/t Au over 3.1m from 555.2m in MQD-22-087; and 19.4 g/t Au over 1.15m from 455.85m in MQD-22-090A.

An additional parallel shear was discovered within the intermediate volcanic package approximately 150m south of the main QES system which contains broad intercepts of low-grade mineralization including 0.91 g/t over 24.8m from 246.4m in MQD-22-080; 0.33 g/t over 45.7m from 150.0m in MQD-22-085; 0.42 g/t over 39.0m from 189.0m in MQD-22-087 containing internal higher grade intercepts including 3.44 g/t Au over 5.8m from 246.4m depth in MQD-22-080; 1.22 g/t Au over 4.0m from 206.0m depth in MQD-22-087; 1.15 g/t Au over 7.3m from 75.0m depth in MQD-22-090A.

Importantly, these intercepts have identified additional high-grade shears not modelled in the recent Mineral Resource.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said, “These drill results confirm high-grade shears that we have modelled at the QES Zone and confirmed additional shears that we expect to include in the next mineral resource update early next year.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

All samples were sent to ALS Geochemistry in Thunder Bay for preparation and analysis was performed in the ALS Vancouver analytical facility. ALS is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for the Accreditation of Mineral Analysis Testing Laboratories and CAN-P-4E ISO/IEC 17025. Samples were analyzed for gold via fire assay with an AA finish (“Au-AA23”) and 48 pathfinder elements via ICP-MS after four-acid digestion (“ME-MS61”). Samples that assayed over 10 ppm Au were re-run via fire assay with a gravimetric finish (“Au-GRA21”).

In addition to ALS quality assurance / quality control (“QA/QC”) protocols, Goldshore has implemented a quality control program for all samples collected through the drilling program. The quality control program was designed by a qualified and independent third party, with a focus on the quality of analytical results for gold. Analytical results are received, imported to our secure on-line database and evaluated to meet our established guidelines to ensure that all sample batches pass industry best practice for analytical quality control. Certified reference materials are considered acceptable if values returned are within three standard deviations of the certified value reported by the manufacture of the material. In addition to the certified reference material, certified blank material is included in the sample stream to monitor contamination during sample preparation. Blank material results are assessed based on the returned gold result being less than ten times the quoted lower detection limit of the analytical method. The results of the on-going analytical quality control program are evaluated and reported to Goldshore by Orix Geoscience Inc.

About Goldshore

Goldshore is an emerging junior gold development company, and owns the Moss Lake Gold Project located in Ontario. Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. is currently a large shareholder of Goldshore with an approximate 27% equity position in the Company. Well-financed and supported by an industry-leading management group, board of directors and advisory board, Goldshore is positioned to advance the Moss Lake Gold Project through the next stages of exploration and development.

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

The Moss Lake Gold Project is located approximately 100 km west of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is accessed via Highway 11 which passes within 1 km of the property boundary to the north. The Moss Lake Gold Project covers 14,292 hectares and consists of 282 unpatented and patented mining claims.

The Moss Lake Gold Project hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit (Table 3), the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 4), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 5), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length.

The Moss Lake Deposit hosts an estimated inferred mineral resource of 4.17 Moz Au (see Goldshore’s news release dated November 15, 2022). A technical report is being prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101“) and will be available on the Company’s website and SEDAR within 45 days of November 15, 2022.

A historical mineral resource estimate (the “East Coldstream Historical Estimate“) was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc.2,3 The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

The historically producing North Coldstream Mine is reported to have produced significant amounts of copper, gold and silver4 from mineralization with potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. The exploration potential immediately surrounding the historic mining area is not currently well understood and historic data compilation is required.

The Hamlin Zone is a significant occurrence of copper and gold mineralization, and also of potential iron-oxide-copper-gold deposit style affinity. Between 2008 and 2011, Glencore tested Hamlin with 24 drill holes which successfully outlined a broad and intermittently mineralized zone over a strike length of 900 m. Historic drill hole highlights from the Hamlin Zone include 0.9 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu over 150.7 m in HAM-11-75.

The Moss Lake, East Coldstream and North Coldstream deposits sit on a mineral trend marked by a regionally significant deformation zone locally referred to as the Wawiag Fault Zone in the area of the Moss Lake Deposit. This deformation zone occurs over a length of approximately 20 km on the Moss Lake Gold Project and there is an area spanning approximately 7 km between the Moss Lake and East Coldstream deposits that is significantly underexplored.

(2) Source: McCracken, T. “Technical Report and Resource Estimate on the Osmani Gold Deposit, Coldstream Property, Northwestern Ontario”, prepared for Foundation Resources Inc. and Alto Ventures Ltd. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on a 0.4 g/t Au cut-off grade. The qualified persons for the East Coldstream Historical Estimate are Todd McCracken, P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and Jeff Wilson, Ph.D., P.Geo. (Tetratech Wardrop), and the effective date of the East Coldstream Historical Estimate is December 12, 2011. Resources are presented unconstrained, undiluted and in situ. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate includes 2 gold-bearing zones. A cut-off grade of 0.4 g/t Au was selected as the official resource cut-off grade. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate is based on 116 diamond drill holes drilled from 1986 to 2011. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. Capping was established at 5.89 g/t Au and 5.70 g/t Au for domains EC-1 and EC-2, respectively. This is supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Datamine Studio 3 version 3.20.5321.0. Resource categorization is based on spatial continuity based from the variography of the assays within the drillholes. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

(3) The reader is cautioned that the East Coldstream Historical Estimate is considered historical in nature and as such is based on prior data and reports prepared by previous property owners. The reader is cautioned not to treat it, or any part of it, as current mineral resources or reserves. The Company has determined this historical resource is reliable, and relevant to be included here in that it demonstrates simply the mineral potential of the Moss Lake Gold Project. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the East Coldstream Historical Estimate as a current resource and Goldshore is not treating the East Coldstream Historical Estimate as a current resource. Significant data compilation, re-drilling, re-sampling and data verification may be required by a qualified person before the East Coldstream Historical Estimate can be classified as a current resource. There can be no assurance that any of the historical mineral resources, in whole or in part, will ever become economically viable. In addition, mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Even if classified as a current resource, there is no certainty as to whether further exploration will result in any inferred mineral resources being upgraded to an indicated or measured mineral resource category. The East Coldstream Historical Estimate relating to inferred mineral resources was calculated using prior mining industry standard definitions and practices for estimating mineral resource and mineral reserves. Such prior definitions and practices were utilized prior to the implementation of the current standards of the Canadian Institute of Mining for mineral resource estimation, and have a lower level of confidence.

Bravo’s Re-sampling Program Continues to Outperform Historic Grades at Luanga

VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 28, 2022 /CNW/ – Bravo Mining Corp. (TSXV: BRVO) (OTCQX: BRVMF) (“Bravo” or the “Company“) today announced that it has received assay results from the analysis of re-sampled historic drill core from an additional eight historical diamond drill holes (“DDH”) from its Luanga (palladium + platinum + rhodium + gold +nickel) project (“Luanga” or “Luanga PGM+Au+Ni“), located in the Carajás Mineral Province, state of Pará, Brazil.

“Assay results have been received from a total of 42 re-sampled historic drill holes to date, with the previously noted positive trend of higher PGM+Au grades continuing to be observed in most intercepts as compared to historical intercepts,” said Luis Azevedo, Chairman and CEO of Bravo. “It is also encouraging that nickel sulphide grades are very comparable to the historical total nickel results, suggesting that very little nickel is tied up in silicates in the fresh rock. All these observations, combined with the first-time assaying for rhodium in many intercepts, are supportive as we work to validate Luanga’s historical mineral resource estimate of 142Mt @ 1.24 g/t Pd+Pt+Au and 0.11% Ni” (see Page 5 of this news release for important information in respect of the Historical Estimate).


  • Results from the ongoing re-sampling of historic drill core continue to show a tendency to exceed the tenor of historic intercept grades, with mineralized thicknesses directly comparable to the thicknesses reported for historic intercepts.
  • Highlights of Bravo’s most recent re-sampling results are tabulated below, with details including comparisons to historic intercepts:

** = Bravo’s nickel grades are sulphide nickel, and do not include non-recoverable silicate nickel, unlike historic total nickel assays.
  • 119 drill holes (including 8 metallurgical drill holes) have been completed so far in 2022, for a total of 20,409 metres (or 80% of the Phase 1 Drill Program). Currently, samples from 46 drill holes are at the assay laboratory pending results, and results from 34 drill holes have been released to date.
  • 22,318 samples have been submitted for assay in 2022, including 3,353 samples from re-sampling of historic drill core.
  • 6 drill rigs operating onsite.

Luanga Re-Sampling Program and Phase 1 Drilling Progress

A comparison of the historic intercepts with the Bravo assay results from re-sampled core is tabulated below, with a plan showing the re-sampled hole locations. A drill section is provided below, showing results for PPT-LUAN-112. Bravo’s assay results from re-sampled core continue to closely correlate to the historic intercepts in thicknesses, while the previously observed trend of intercepts frequently exceeding the tenor of historic grades continues. This is most likely related to improved assay methods for PGMs versus those available over 20 years ago, and only sporadic rhodium assaying historically.

The Phase 1 diamond drill program continues as planned at Luanga. Six drill rigs are on site, with drilling progressing in various locations along the entire 8.1km strike length of the known Luanga mineralized envelope. To date, 114 drill holes have been completed, for a total of 19,384 metres (or 76%) of the planned 25,500 metre Phase 1 drill program.

Technical Disclosure

Technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Simon Mottram, F.AusIMM (Fellow Australia Institute of Mining and Metallurgy), President of Bravo Mining Corp. who serves as the Company’s “qualified person”, as defined in National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101“). Mr. Mottram has verified the technical data and opinions contained in this news release.

Historical Resource Estimate

This press release includes a historical resource estimate for the Luanga Project (the “Historical Estimate“) prepared internally by prior owners, VALE SA, in 2017 and contained in a report by  Mansur E.T., Ferreira Filho C.F., Oliveira D.P.L. entitled “The Luanga deposit, Carajás Mineral Province, Brazil: Different styles of PGE mineralization hosted in a medium-size layered intrusion.” and published in Ore Geology Reviews (Volume 118, March 2020, 103340). A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves under National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) and Bravo is not treating the Historical Estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves. Bravo cautions that the Historical Estimate was not prepared in accordance with NI 43-101. There can be no certainty, following further evaluation and/or exploration work, that the Historical Estimate can be upgraded or verified as mineral resources or mineral reserves in accordance with NI 43-101. Further, the assays values used to calculate the nickel content in the Historical Estimate are total nickel, and thus contain both sulphide nickel (potentially recoverable) and silicate nickel (unrecoverable by conventional methods). Bravo is not aware whether the nickel content in the Historical Estimate has been modified to account for this or not. In addition, no breakdown of the assay results for the individual metals contributing to this Historical Estimate has been published and the Historical Estimate was not classified in accordance with the mineral resource categories set out in NI 43-101. Nevertheless, Bravo considers the Historical Estimate to be relevant to the reader’s understanding of the status of the Project and its future potential.

Schedule 2: Assay Methodologies and QAQC

Samples followed chain of custody between collection, processing and delivery to the ALS laboratory in Parauapebas, state of Pará, Brazil. The drill core was delivered to the core shack at Bravo’s Luanga site facilities and processed by geologists who inserted certified reference materials, blanks and duplicates into the sampling sequence. Drill core was quarter cut and placed in secured polyurethane bags, then in security-sealed sacks before being delivered directly from the Luanga site facilities to the Parauapebas ALS laboratory by Bravo staff. Additional information about the methodology can be found on the respective ALS or SGS global websites (ALSSGS) in their analytical guides. Information regarding preparation and analysis of historic drill core is also presented in the table below, where the information is known.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control (“QAQC“) is maintained internally at the lab through rigorous use of internal certified reference materials, blanks, and duplicates. An additional QAQC program is administered by Bravo using certified reference materials, duplicate samples and blank samples that are blindly inserted into the sample batch. If a QAQC sample returns an unacceptable value an investigation into the results is triggered and when deemed necessary, the samples that were tested in the batch with the failed QAQC sample are re-tested.

StrikePoint Discovers Two New Zones of Surface Mineralization with Results Up to 156 g/t Gold and 91.7 g/t Silver and Extends North Zone with Results up to 53.9 g/t Gold and 1,240 g/t Silver at Willoughby

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 28, 2022) – StrikePoint Gold Inc. (TSXV: SKP) (OTCQB: STKXF) (“StrikePoint” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the drilling results as well as reconnaissance grab sample results from the 2022 exploration program at the 100%-owned Willoughby gold-silver project, located east of the community of Stewart in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. The 2022 program was focussed on regional exploration aimed at growing the footprint of the Willoughby mineralization trend and to drill previously untested areas on the Project

Highlights of the 2022 field program at Willoughby Include:

  • Newly discovered “BOD Zone” 125m to the South of the Icefall zone on the Willoughby nunataq, with best grab sample returning 156 g/t Au and 91.7 g/t Ag
  • New discovered “FS Zone” 700m to the south of the Willoughby nunataq with best grab sample returning 6.48 g/t Au and 52.5 g/t Ag
  • Extension of the main Willoughby showing along NNW structures with samples returning up to 53.9 g/t Au and 1,240 g/t Ag
  • Drillhole W22-129 at the north end of the main Willoughby nunataq intersected 2.48 g/t Au and 4.00 g/t Ag over 4.20 metres including 11.45 g/t Au and 13.70 g/t Ag over 0.85 metres
  • Drillhole W22-125, at the south end of the Willoughby nunataq intersected 1.02 g/t Au and 27.15 g/t Ag over 5.32 metres in a new zone of mineralization and alteration lying to the west of known mineralized zones.

StrikePoint’s CEO, Michael G. Allen, states, “The 2022 program at Willoughby significantly expanded the known mineralized footprint on the property. Significant gold and silver grades have been established through surface sampling and drilling for approximately 2,700 meters of strike length of the Willoughby trend. Additionally, drillholes W22-125 and W22-129 identified potential new zones of mineralization west of previous drilling at either end of the Willoughby nunataq, that has only been cut by these two drillholes to date.”

2022 Willoughby Surface Sampling

At total of 84 surface grab samples were collected as part of the 2022 Willoughby property exploration program. Values returned ranged from 0.005 to 156.0 g/t Au and 0.25 to 1,240.0 g/t Ag with 27 samples returning gold values of greater than 0.1 g/t. The program targeted areas of newly exposed outcrop to the south and north of the Main Willoughby showing along the initial 1,300m long mineralized trend. Exploration surface sampling highlighted two new mineralized zones, FS and BOD zones to the south, as well as confirming mineralization at the historic Back Ridge zone, a previously underexplored area. This work extended the Willoughby mineralized trend to a total of 2,700 metres.

Figure 1. Willoughby property surface grab sample locations

The BOD Zone is located at the southern most end of the Willoughby nunataq, 125 metres South of the Icefall zone. Surface reconnaissance outlined a wide area of quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration at BOD that is linked to alteration associated with of north-northwest striking structures further north on the nunataq. These steeply east dipping structures are linked to bonanza grade mineralization as shown in grab sample B0017097 grading 156 g/t Au and 91.7 g/t Ag. In addition, alteration halos around these structures returned significant grades in three surface samples which average 4.02 g/t Au and 11.9 g/t Ag.

Further to the north on the Willoughby nunataq, infill sampling was completed along the southerly projection of the North Fault, confirming a 125-metre extension the north-northwest trending structure. Sample B0017066 returned 53.9 g/t Au and 1,240 g/t Ag in a fault breccia with semi massive sulphide cement, dominantly pyrite with patchy to disseminated galena.

The newly defined FS zone located at the southernmost extent of the property, approximately 700 meters to the south of the BOD zone. This area has been recently exposed due to significant ice recession. This new zone exhibits similar mineralization style to those outlined on the Willoughby nunataq, suggesting a continuation of known mineralization. Significant grades were returned from the few grab samples collected: B0017075 1.39 g/t Au and 128 g/t Ag, B0017076 3.05 g/t Au and 36.2 g/t Ag, B0017080 4.95 g/t Au and 120 g/t Ag, and B0017081 6.48 g/t Au and 52.5 g/t Ag.

The Company considers these to be very encouraging results, strengthening and extending the mineralization trend.

Willoughby Drilling

A total of 1,500 meters of diamond drilling was completed during the 2022 Willoughby exploration program with a focus on northern and southern extensions of mineralized zones on the Willoughby nunataq and exploratory drilling to discover new mineralization to the west of the Willoughby Trend.

The program was successful in defining new mineralization to southwest of the North zone in hole W22-129 which returned 2.48 g/t Au and 4.00 g/t Ag over 4.20 metres including 11.45 g/t Au and 13.70 g/t Ag over 0.85 metres. The mineralization outlined in this hole is at the contact between the Jurassic volcanic rock package and the Goldslide intrusive in an area strongly quartz-sericite altered with massive pyrite mineralized sections and is similar to what is seen at the Edge, Wilby, and Icefall zones. From the same drill set-up, hole W22-128 intersected 1.11 g/t Au and 20.96 g/t Ag over 9.02 metres including 2.46 g/t Au and 35.23 g/t Ag over 2.52 metres exploring extension of the mineralization to the northwest, notably towards the NN zone. Mineralized intersections consist of massive pyrite veins in a chlorite altered intrusive which is interpreted to be with the footwall alteration of the dominant structures bearing mineralization.

The remaining the three exploration holes were drilled further to the south on the Willoughby nunataq in wide areas that were previously untested. Hole W22-125 was an exploratory hole to the southwest that intersected 1.02 g/t Au and 27.15 g/t Ag over 5.32 metres in strongly altered silica-sericite lapilli tuff with semi-massive pyrite and sphalerite in an unexplored area. Hole W22-127 was an aggressive 100m step out from known mineralization at the Wilby zone, it intersected 0.82 g/t Au and 1.41 g/t Ag over 8.78 metres and 8.39 g/t Au and 11.20 g/t Ag over 1.12 metres.

Willoughby Project

The project occurs along the eastern margin of the Cambria Icefield, approximately seven kilometres east of the advanced-stage Red Mountain Deposit owned by Ascot Resources. Upper Triassic Stuhini rocks and Lower Jurassic Hazelton volcano-sedimentary rocks underlay the property, subsequently intruded by an early Jurassic-aged hornblende-feldspar porphyry, potentially comagmatic with the Goldslide Intrusive suite at the nearby Red Mountain deposit. Intrusive-related mineralized zones consist of primary pyrite with lesser pyrrhotite, sphalerite, galena, chalcopyrite, and native gold. Eight gold and silver mineralized zones have been identified to date over a two-kilometre strike-length mineralized trend.


Samples for the 2022 drilling exploration program were all NQ-sized (47.6 mm diameter) drill core was labeled, sawn in half, with one-half placed in sealed bags, and shipped with a chain of custody controls to the laboratory. The remaining drill core is securely stored in Stewart, BC. The surface samples for the 2022 exploration program were labelled and shipped to the laboratory using industry standard chain of custody controls. The company implements a rigorous Quality Control/Quality Assurance program, including the insertion of standards, blanks, and duplicates at regular intervals in the sample stream to monitor laboratory performance.

All samples were submitted to the ALS Chemex and underwent preparation at either their Terrace and Langley facilities in British Columbia with all analytical work carried out at their North Vancouver, BC laboratory. The ALS facility is accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard for gold assays, and all analytical methods include quality control materials at set frequencies with established data acceptance criteria. The entire sample is crushed, split into representative sub-samples using a riffle splitter, and subsequently, 250g is pulverized. Analysis for gold is by 30g fire assay fusion with atomic absorption (AAS) finish with a lower limit of 0.005 ppm and an upper limit of 10 ppm. Samples with gold assays greater than 10ppm are re-analyzed using a 30g fire assay fusion with a gravimetric finish. Analysis for silver is by 30g fire assay fusion with gravimetric finish with a lower limit of 2ppm and upper limit of 100ppm. Samples with silver assays higher than 100ppm are re-analyzed using a gravimetric silver concentrate method. All samples are also analyzed using a 33 multi-elemental geochemical package by 4-acid digestion (ICP-AES).
