Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Processes Gold and Silver From Upper Adit at Buckeye Mine Arizona

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 16, 2023) – Further to its press release of March 3, 2023, Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to provide an update on the latest processing campaign at its 125 TPD pilot plant.

Over a recent four-day period from March 8 to March 13, 2023, SBMI processed mineralized vein material at its 100% owned mill in Globe, Arizona, from which it recovered concentrate which will be converted to dore bars, confirming the recent mill modification was successful. The mineralized material was taken from the vein structure in the upper adit behind the Treasure Room.

Dore bar poured March 15, 2023.

SBMI is producing an initial batch of dore bars to be sent to a third-party lab for analysis and to potential purchasers for their analysis. One dore bar has previously been sent to a potential purchaser for its analysis.

Calibrated XRF analysis have confirmed recovered gold in these dore bars, including one bar that analyzed 0.382 % gold. The XRF analysis shows the dore consists primarily of silver and copper, with gold, zinc, nickel, lead and iron. No deleterious material was found in the dore bar. This confirms the previous findings of Dr. Andrew Macdonald from the Harquail School of Earth Sciences at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario on the silver contained within a sample collected from the floor of the Treasure Room area.

The crushing circuit of the mill is running at optimal efficiency. The grinding and gravity circuits were run at approximately 50% capacity while being optimized. The number of tons of mineralized material to be processed per hour will be increased as optimization continues and as a result of grade control assay results processed at SBMI’s lab at the millsite.

To feed the mill, the Company has accumulated a significant stockpile of mineralized material at the Buckeye Mine for transportation to the mill site. Mining is ongoing in 150 ton (136 tonne) rounds, with four rounds per week, advancing at 12 feet (3.7 metres) per round.

Next steps include increasing the tonnage being shipped from the Buckeye Mine to the mill, continuing mining of the historical higher grade zone, filling the outstanding order, sourcing other purchasers, and continuing to improve operational performance at the Buckeye Mine and at the mill.

SBMI previously announced that it had received an order for 50 kg (1,760 ounces) of silver. The entity that placed that order has advised SBMI that it intends to increase that order to a minimum of 500 kg (17,600 ounces) per month. Management reasonably believes it will be able to satisfy that increased order for the foreseeable future. To decrease risk, the Company is currently in discussions with several additional potential purchasers.

Higher grade samples and dore bars, and what the field team believes to be bornite, will be sent to Harquail School of Earth Sciences for further detailed analysis. See the photo below.

The potential bornite at the Buckeye Mine is believed to be found as a hydrothermal mineral in fractures in cooler areas of the fluid migration. Association with native silver and other precious minerals have been known to occur in such mineralized situations. Further analysis of the potential bornite mineralization is ongoing.

Recent sample collected from the Buckeye Mine upper adit @ 450 feet from the portal entrance.

Collective Mining Drills 359.15 Metres at 3.32 g/t Gold Equivalent from Surface, Including 35.30 Metres at 8.06 g/t Gold Equivalent in Oxides at the Apollo Porphyry System

  • Assay results for two holes APC-33 and APC-35, intended to test the mineralized outcrop of the Apollo porphyry system, intersected significant continuous high-grade copper-silver-gold mineralization from surface as follows:
  • The intersection in drill hole APC-35 is the highest grade (grams X metres) hole drilled to date at the Apollo porphyry system.
  • Both holes terminated while still in strong mineralization at over 350 metres vertical depth. Deeper drilling is planned as part of the 2023 Phase II program.
  • Significant and continuous copper mineralization was intersected in both drill holes beginning directly below the oxide zone of mineralization and continuing to the end of the holes.
  • Four additional drill holes have been completed from drill Pads 6 and 7 with all four holes appearing to have intersected continuous mineralization from bedrock to downhole lengths of up to 275 metres. Assay results are pending.
  • Outcrop mapping and sampling in the south and central portions of the Apollo porphyry system has outlined a 130 metres X 130 metres area of known surface mineralization which is open in all directions. Two new pads (9 and 10) are under construction and once operational will provide more drilling options to test this expanding area of surface and shallow mineralization.

Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman commented: “The Apollo deposit continues to demonstrate that it is in a rare class of discoveries combining both high-grades of copper, silver and gold hosted within a bulk tonnage porphyry system. Surprises through drilling continue to be positive with APC-35 being the highest grade intercept at the project to date. Importantly, the hole began and ended in two separate high-grade subzones of mineralization. Once the shallow portion of the drill program is completed in the coming weeks, we will immediately begin drilling significantly longer holes to test the full potential of the system from surface to depth. Assay turnaround continues to be quick and more results are expected in the near term.”

TORONTO, March 15, 2023 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from an additional two drill holes completed from Pad 6 as part of the Phase II program at the Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. The aim of the Phase II program is to test and define through drilling the shallow portion of the Apollo porphyry system as well as continue expanding the system through step-out drilling. The Apollo porphyry deposit is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-silver-gold system, which owes its excellent metal endowment to an older copper-silver and gold porphyry system being overprinted by younger precious metal rich, carbonate base metal vein systems (low and intermediate sulphidation porphyry veins) within a magmatic, hydrothermal intermineral breccia body currently measuring 395 metres x 385 metres x 915 metres and open for expansion.

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1-3)

The Phase II drilling program of 2023 is advancing on schedule with seven holes completed and a further three in progress. The aim of this program is to define the high-grade mineralization and dimensions of the Apollo porphyry system near surface while continuing to expand the size of the system through step-out drilling.  To date, a total of 34 drill holes (approximately 16,000 metres) have been completed and assayed at the Apollo target with the majority of the holes testing the Apollo porphyry system.

Assay results for the first drill hole (APC-31) from the 2023 Phase II program was announced on February 23, 2023 and intersected 384.7 Metres at 2.46 g/t Gold Equivalent from surface which included high-grade oxide mineralization of 42.35 metres averaging 5.08 g/t gold equivalent.

A further two holes, APC-33 and APC-35 have now been completed from Pad 6 with assay results and geological observations summarized below.

APC-35 was drilled steeply to the northwest from Pad 6 to a maximum depth of 366.15 metres (350 metres vertical). The hole was designed to test the potential for shallow, high-grade mineralization located 50 metres west of APC-31. The hole intersected continuous mineralization from surface down to its final depth where it was terminated while still in strong mineralization (final 3.45m averaging 1.11 g/t gold equivalent). APC-35 is the highest-grade mineralization (grams X metres) reported from drilling to date as follows:

  • 359.15 metres @ 3.32 g/t gold equivalent (consisting of 1.84 g/t gold, 48 g/t silver and 0.48% copper) including:

The mineralized interval starts directly below overburden at 7 metres and into saprolite and oxide material until 42.30 metres before transitioning into fresh mineralized angular breccia rock consisting of chalcopyrite (0.2% to 1.5%), pyrite (1% to 2%) and some pyrrhotite (~1%). The mineralization is overprinted by carbonate-base metal veins containing sphalerite and galena and high grades of gold particularly from 318.30 metres downhole. Gold grades are significantly higher in the oxidized portion of the intercept while copper and silver grades are consistently high throughout the whole intercept below the oxidized zone.

APC-33 was drilled steeply to the north from Pad 6 to a maximum depth of 381.35 metres (360 metres vertical). The hole was also designed to test the potential for shallow, high grade mineralization located 50 metres east of APC-31. The hole intersected continuous mineralization from surface down to its final depth where it was terminated while still in strong mineralization (last 4.44 metres grade 1.7 g/t gold equivalent) and averaged:

  • 374.70 metres @ 2.22 g/t gold equivalent (consisting of 0.85 g/t gold, 53 g/t silver and 0.34% copper) including:

The mineralized interval starts directly below overburden at 6.65 metres and into saprolite and oxide material until 49.50 metres before transitioning into fresh mineralized angular breccia rock consisting of chalcopyrite (0.2% to 1.2%), pyrite (1% to 2.5%) and some pyrrhotite (~1%). The sulphides fill the breccia matrix and are surrounded by clasts of quartz diorite and diorite. The mineralization is overprinted by carbonate-base metal veins containing sphalerite and galena. Gold grades are significantly higher in the oxidized portion of the intercept where copper grades are depleted.

Outcrop mapping and sampling in the south and central portions of the system has outlined a 130 metre-by-130 metre area of known surface mineralization, which is open in all directions.  Pads 6 and 7 have been designed with the objective of understanding the styles and tenor of the shallow, high-grade mineralization from surface down to depths of up to 400 metres. Visual observations from another four completed holes indicate continuous intercepts from surface over core lengths ranging from more than 100 metres to more than 275 metres. The Company presently has three diamond drill rigs operating at the Apollo project and additional assay results are expected in the near term.

Two new drill pads, numbered 9 and 10, are under construction to provide further drilling options to test and expand upon the area which the Apollo porphyry system outcrops at surface.

The Apollo target area, as defined to date by surface mapping, rock sampling and copper and molybdenum soil geochemistry, covers a 1,000 metres X 1,200 metres area, and represents a large and unusually high-grade Cu-Ag-Au porphyry system. Mineralization styles include early-stage porphyry veins, inter-mineral breccia mineralization and multiple zones of porphyry related late stage, sheeted, carbonate-base metal veins with high gold and silver grades. The Apollo target area is still expanding as the Company’s geologists find more outcrop areas with porphyry veining, breccia, and late stage, sheeted, carbonate base metal veins.

Goldshore Intersects Multiple New Parallel Shears Increasing Width of QES Zone by Over 100 meters – Including 1.33 g/t Au over 54.45m

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – March 14, 2023) – 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 Gold Project“).

Highlights:

  • Results from seven holes in-filling the QES Zone have confirmed wide zones of gold mineralization containing multiple, closely spaced high grade shears in previously poorly drilled volumes with best intercepts of:
  • Additionally, these holes intersected parallel mineralized shears at shallow depths south of the main QES zone which are open along strike and expand the cumulative width of the QES Zone by over 100m to 620m. Best intercepts include:

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: As previously illustrated throughout the last 12 months of publishing drill results, these results continue to support our thesis that the size and scale of the Moss Gold Project will be large enough to support a material and meaningful update to the mineral resource estimate, which is expected in April 2023, followed by a preliminary economic assessment on the updated resource. We continue to find additions to the resource on step out holes laterally and along strike from the historic resource profile, and QES continues to widen with continued mineralization to be tested to make it even wider. We look forward to seeing the impact of these additions to the resource model.”

Technical Overview

Figure 1 shows the better intercepts in plan view and Figure 2 is a typical section through hole MQD-22-100 and -104. Table 1 shows the significant intercepts. Table 2 shows the drill hole locations.

These most recent results continue to build on the successful winter infill and expansion program at the QES Zone. The robust widths and consistent gold grades in all seven holes provide strong confirmation of the geological interpretation, and significantly increase the resolution of data in hitherto poorly defined volumes.

Holes MQD-22-098, -100, -102 and -103 were focused on closing gaps in the existing drill pattern at shallower elevations. All four holes intercepted a tightly spaced set of narrow, high grade shear zones within a broad envelope of strongly altered granodiorite.

Holes MQD-22-099, -101 and -104 were stepped back to the southeast to test the deeper portion of the eastern end of the QES Zone. These holes have defined the true width of the high- and low-grade mineralized domains in an area of widely spaced and partially sampled historical drilling. In addition to these deeper intercepts on the main QES shear zone, all three holes generated significant high-grade intercepts at shallow depths which define a series of parallel mineralized shears in sericite-hematite altered volcanics and narrow diorite intrusive bodies 200m to the south of the main QES Zone.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said “These results confirm our belief that the Moss Gold deposit is wider and deeper than previously thought – now filling a 600-700-meter-wide corridor – and that there are many more shears hosting high-grade gold mineralization. This will assist our goal of expanding the mineral resource and improving its quality in April 2023.”

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.

Diamcor Recovers 45.15 Carat Gem Quality Diamond and Provides Update on Procurement of Power System

KELOWNA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 13, 2023 / Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSX-V:DMI)(OTCQB:DMIFF)(FRA:DC3A), (“Diamcor” or, the “Company”) is pleased to announce the recovery of a 45.15 carat gem quality rough diamond from the processing of quarry material at the Company’s Krone-Endora at Venetia Project (the “Project”). This 45.15 carat large rough diamond in the Specials category (+10.8 carats) follows the previously recovered 72.53 carat gem quality rough diamond announced on February 21, 2023. The recovery of this second large gem quality rough diamond, along with the pending sale of approximately 2,000 additional carats delivered for tender and sale, is expected to positively impact revenues and offset the lower than anticipated current processing volumes associated with the ongoing power load-shedding currently being experienced in South Africa.

The Company is also pleased to provide a further update on the progress on the procurement and installation of a comprehensive long-term supplementary power solution at the Project. Various options were evaluated by the Company’s operational management team throughout 2022 in anticipation of potential issues with consistent power supply in South Africa, with the main focus being to provide the Project with systems to eliminate potential downtime and lost processing time at the Project. The chosen system will incorporate various items including a large Battery Energy Storage System (“BESS”) element, power conditioning, switching systems, and generator backup systems. The solution has been designed to provide the Project with a globally recognised tier 1 energy management system to provide a long-term seamless uninterrupted transition between traditional grid power supply, battery systems, and generator backup systems. In addition, the system will provide power conditioning to “clean” all power being supplied to the Project’s processing plant, which is expected to provide significant benefits including increased reliability of electronics while lowering maintenance on the processing plant’s electrical systems. The Company is expediting these efforts due to the current elevated issues surrounding the inconsistent supply of power in South Africa by Eskom, the national power supplier. The Company is targeting the installation of these systems to be completed prior to the end of the next quarter.

Highlights

  • Continued Tender and Sale of Rough Diamonds. While the total carats of rough diamonds tendered and sold in the current quarter continues to be lower than anticipated due to widely reported increases in daily load-shedding / power outages throughout South Africa, ongoing efforts to maximize recoveries and the continued recovery of larger gem-quality rough diamonds in the Specials category are expected to offset this issue in the near-term.
  • Average Dollar Per Carat Increases in Period. The combination of the Project’s relatively high percentage of gem quality diamonds recovered to date, along with the recent recovery of two large gem quality special rough diamonds, is expected to have a positive impact on the average dollar per carat for the current period. Tender and sales totaling 1,538.62 carats of rough diamonds in the current quarter to date has generated gross revenues of USD $980,696.08, resulting in an average dollar per carat of USD $637.39.
  • Recovery of Large Gem Quality Rough Diamonds. Even while operating at restricted processing levels, the Company’s recovery of the previously announced 72.53 carat diamond gem quality rough diamond and the recent recovery of the above mentioned 45.15 carat gem quality rough diamond in the current quarter continues to confirm the potential for these types of large rough diamonds to be recovered from the Project’s deposits and provide positive impact to gross revenues.
  • Continued Rough Diamond Recoveries. The Company continues to process material and manage inconsistencies in power supply delivering approximately 2,000 carats of additional rough diamonds for tender and sale. Additional rough diamonds recovered prior to March 31, 2023, will either be tendered and sold in a final tender and sale of the current period, or held as stock on hand at the end of the period, and tendered in the Company’s next quarter.
  • Continued Progress on the Procurement and Installation of Power Systems. The Company’s operational team continues to advance the previously announced installation of comprehensive systems aimed at mitigating the long-term impact any potential load-shedding has had on the Project. Installation of this system is targeted for completion at the end of the Company’s next fiscal quarter.

“The recent recovery of another larger gem quality 45.15 carat rough diamond will provide further revenue during the period, and additional confirmation of the Project’s potential to continue recovering these larger rough diamonds”, stated Mr. Dean Taylor, Diamcor CEO. “We certainly look forward to the near-term implementation of the back-up power systems to remove current limitations on processing volumes, and with that, return our focus to efforts aimed at expanding our understanding of the potential deposits on the greater areas of the Project.”

About Krone-Endora at Venetia

In February 2011, Diamcor acquired the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project from De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited, consisting of the prospecting rights over the farms Krone 104 and Endora 66, which represent a combined surface area of approximately 5,888 hectares directly adjacent to De Beers’ flagship Venetia Diamond Mine in South Africa. On September 11, 2014, the Company announced that the South African Department of Mineral Resources had granted a Mining Right for the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project encompassing 657.71 hectares of the Project’s total area of 5,888 hectares. The Company has also submitted an application for a mining right over the remaining areas of the Project. The deposits which occur on the properties of Krone and Endora have been identified as a higher-grade “Alluvial” basal deposit which is covered by a lower-grade upper “Eluvial” deposit. The deposits are proposed to be the result of the direct-shift (in respect to the “Eluvial” deposit) and erosion (in respect to the “Alluvial” deposit) of material from the higher grounds of the adjacent Venetia Kimberlite areas. The deposits on Krone-Endora occur in two layers with a maximum total depth of approximately 15.0 metres from surface to bedrock, allowing for very low-cost mining to be employed with the potential for near-term diamond production from a known high-quality source. Krone-Endora also benefits from the significant development of infrastructure and services already in place due to its location directly adjacent to the Venetia Mine.

Base Metals Emx Royalty Energy Junior Mining Precious Metals Project Generators

EMX Establishes Idaho-focused Explorer; Combines Portfolio of Precious & Base Metal Projects, Idaho Business Unit, and Drilling Subsidiary to Form Scout Discoveries Corp

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – March 8, 2023) – EMX Royalty Corporation (NYSE American: EMX) (TSXV: EMX) (FSE: 6E9) (the “Company” or “EMX”) is pleased to announce the execution, by its wholly-owned subsidiary Bronco Creek Exploration Inc. (“BCE”), of a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to sell its a) portfolio of 14 precious and base metal projects in Idaho (the “Portfolio”) acquired via staking between 2018-2022, b) Idaho Business Unit, and c) wholly-owned core drilling subsidiary, Scout Drilling LLC, to Scout Discoveries Corp. (“Scout”). Scout is a U.S. private corporation headquartered in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and will be led by Dr. Curtis Johnson, as president and CEO along with several members of the BCE team who generated, acquired, and advanced the Portfolio which represents the largest unpatented claim holdings in the state.

EMX was an early mover in the modern era of exploration in Idaho by recognizing the geologic potential for tier one precious and base metal systems coupled with the ability to acquire contiguous district-scale land positions where limited exploration has taken place in over 30 years. Numerous projects in the Portfolio were advanced by previous EMX partners between 2018-2022. The work invested in the Portfolio has resulted in a diverse pipeline of early-stage projects through fully vetted, drill-ready targets with several historical resources open for expansion (Figure 1).

This proposed transaction is a unique example of the organic royalty generation component of EMX’s business model that provides an asset base substantial enough to form a new company around. The terms of the LOI provide EMX with an equity interest, a retained 3.25% net smelter return (“NSR”) royalty interest, annual advance royalty (“AAR”) payments, and certain milestone payments as the Portfolio of 14 projects is advanced.

Commercial Terms Overview. Pursuant to the LOI, Scout will purchase a 100% interest in the Portfolio by (all dollar amounts in USD):

  • Issuance of shares equal to 19.9% of Scout to EMX.
  • Raising a minimum of $3,000,000 in exploration capital coincident with the closing of the transfer of the Portfolio.

Upon the successful completion of the above:

  • EMX will be granted a 3.25% NSR royalty on each of the 14 projects in the Portfolio, as well as AAR and milestone payments divided into two tiers:
  • Tier 1, Advanced-stage Exploration Projects: Erickson Ridge, South Orogrande, Lehman Butte, Jacknife, Moose Ridge, and Century.
  • Tier 2, Early-stage Exploration Projects: Timber Butte, Muldoon, Independence, Valve House, Cuddy Mountain, Scout, Silverback, and Cartwright Canyon.

Ongoing Scout obligations to the Company, on a per project basis, will include:

  • EMX will receive AAR payments for Tier 1 projects beginning on the second anniversary and Tier 2 projects beginning on the fourth anniversary of the LOI starting at $10,000/year and increasing $10,000/year to a cap of $75,000/year.

The LOI contemplates EMX and Scout entering into a definitive agreement by March 31st and closing the transaction by May 1st, 2023.

Scout Discoveries Overview. With the completion of the LOI, Scout will be 100%-focused on advancing the Idaho Portfolio to discovery. Combining the Portfolio with EMX’s low impact Hydracore HC2000 core drill and experienced team, Scout will be structured to internally advance projects from initial target definition, through drill testing and resource delineation. This represents a unique, cost-effective business model to advance the Portfolio, which includes the following key projects:

  • Erickson Ridge: The Erickson Ridge project covers the northern extension of the Orogrande Shear Zone (“OSZ”) in the Elk City mining district, and hosts multiple historical shear-hosted gold resources (Figure 2), including a 1980s-era historical resource. Historical drill intercepts from the 1980s include 33.5 meters @ 4.1 g/t gold (ER-84-13 from 16.8m to 50.3 m) and 21.3 meters @ 3.15 g/t gold (ER-84-23 from 77.7 to 99.0 m) (disseminated-style mineralization, true thicknesses unknown)[1].

Historical exploration was focused on shallow oxide gold mineralization, with drill holes typically less than 100 meters in depth. Previous soil sampling programs by EMX and partners identified a 0.5 x 1.5 km gold-in-soil anomaly that extends mineralization more than one kilometer (km) along strike beyond the historical resource footprint[2]. The project is now permitted for drilling to follow-up on these targets.

  • South OrograndeThe project lies 16 km south of Erickson Ridge and covers approximately 11.5 km of strike length along the OSZ (Figure 3). South Orogrande is adjacent to, and along strike, of Endomines Inc’s Friday deposit which has historical open pit constrained mineral resources[3]. At South Orogrande, modern surface exploration (2018-2021) identified multiple km-scale, cohesive gold-in-soil anomalies (2×5 km and 1.5×3 km) with coincident geophysical anomalies in areas of minimal outcrop and widespread placer gold[4].

The only modern drilling is a single hole in 2021 that was lost at 269m, which intersected increasing intensities of disseminated quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration that assayed 0.78 g/t Au over 1.5m within a consistent zone of 72m @ 0.15 g/t Au (from 197m to 269m) at the bottom of the hole[5]. This drilling has not been followed up, and the project is permitted for 50 new drill pads within the gold-in-soil anomalies.

  • Jacknife: The Jacknife project encompasses the entirety of the Lakeview Ag-Pb-Zn district, including 335 acres of leased patented claims, approximately 40 km northwest of the Silver Valley, Idaho (Figure 4). The project is centered on a seven-km swarm of 0.5 to 5-meter-thick carbonate-quartz-sulfide veins hosted in regional shear zones within Mesoproterozoic Belt Basin sedimentary units, predominantly the Wallace, St. Regis, and Revett Formations – key host units in the Silver Valley. In the 1960s a 610 meter (m) vertical exploration shaft was sunk, with exploration drifting completed to explore the vein system to depth and define an historical resource[6]. Only minor surface exploration and small-scale production has occurred in the district since.

In 2012, limited shallow drilling was completed in the historical resource area, with highlight intercepts of 1.4m (101.4-102.8m) @ 692 g/t Ag, 5.7% Pb, 0.4% Zn, and 0.42 g/t Au (ABM-12-DH2) and 0.6m (100.4-101m) @ 1,106 g/t Ag, 0.65% Pb, 0.23% Zn, 0.81 g/t Au (ABM-12-DH4) (true thicknesses unknown)[7]. In 2021-2022, EMX leased the patented claims at Lakeview, and staked the surrounding open ground, marking the first time the district has been consolidated since initial discovery in the late 1800s.

  • Lehman Butte: The Lehman Butte project, located in central Idaho, contains widespread low sulfidation epithermal veining and quartz-clay-adularia alteration in intermediate volcanic rocks, as well as jasperoid replacing underlying Mississippian limestone (Figure 5). Work by EMX and previous partners has outlined a cohesive 1.5 x 3 km gold-in-soil anomaly with rock chip samples that include 3.1 g/t Au and 19.8 g/t Ag (n=214, avg. 0.145 g/t Au and 4.8 g/t Ag), indicating bulk-tonnage style mineralization, cored by a zone of banded quartz-adularia feeder veins up to 2.5m in width and mapped across 3 km of strike. Coincident magnetic, chargeability, and resistivity anomalies corroborate the targets outlined by surface sampling and mapping. The project is permitted for drilling and the primary target is a bulk-tonnage Au-Ag deposit hosted within permeable volcanics, as well as high-grade bonanza-style epithermal veins at depth.
  • Pipeline Projects: The Portfolio includes an additional 10 district-scale, earlier stage projects with Carlin-type Au, low sulfidation epithermal Au-Ag, porphyry and intrusion-related Au-Cu, carbonate replacement Ag-Pb-Zn (Au-Cu), Silver Valley-type Ag-Pb-Zn, and orogenic Au targets. Scout will advance these projects systematically through detailed target definition as the four highlighted projects are drill-tested.

The Scout Discoveries team will be led by Dr. Curtis Johnson as President and CEO, and will be comprised of a core group of youthful, but seasoned explorationists that will shift from BCE to Scout on a 100% basis. These acomplished geologists have been responsible for assembling and building value in Scout’s Idaho Portfolio. Further value will be provided by integrating Scout Drilling LLC into the new company, which will provide Scout Discoveries with a unique competitive advantage to quickly and cost effectively evaluate mineral project upside through drilling. Idaho is a highly prospective terrane for developing new precious, base and battery metals resources, and EMX is confident that Scout Discoveries will be a leader in exploration discovery and entrepreneurial success.

Collective Mining Intersects 55.25 Metres at 1.91 g/t Gold Equivalent in Step Out Drilling at the Olympus Target

  • Reconnaissance underground step-out drilling for the three hole Phase II program at the Olympus target has intercepted continuous mineralization with highlight assay results including:
  • Drill hole OLCU-2 has extended the known strike of the Olympus system by 150 metres to the southwest of drill hole OLCC-4 from the Phase I program in H1 2022 with previously announced results including:
  • As a result of OLCU-2, the dimensions of the Olympus system now measure 600 metres by 400 metres and remains open to the east, west, north and to depth for further expansion.
  • Drill hole OLCU-2 is located only 280 metres to the northwest of the currently known northern boundary of the Apollo porphyry system which was intercepted in step out hole APC-17, which returned 547.65 metres at 1.03 g/t gold equivalent (see press release November 29, 2022). Porphyry mineralization observed in drill core at Olympus raise the possibility that the Apollo porphyry system might continue at depth below Olympus. Future deep drilling will test this concept.
  • Multiple zones of NW trending sheeted late-stage porphyry related carbonate base metal veins have now been mapped and/or drilled from Aris Mining’s multi-million-ounce Marmato mine through the ME, Apollo and Olympus targets respectively covering a strike length of approximately three kilometres.
  • Presently, the Company has three diamond drill rigs turning at the Apollo porphyry system focused on testing the southern portion of the system where it daylights at surface. On February 23, 2023, the Company reported initial assay results from its first hole (APC-31) drilled in 2023 and confirmed that high-grade mineralization extends to surface with assay results as follow:
  • An additional seven holes have been completed at Apollo and have all appeared to have cut continuous mineralization from surface down to depths of up to 375 metres. Assay results for holes APC-33 and APC-35 are expected in the near term.

Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman commented: “Inspection of drill core and underground sampling at the Olympus target point to the potential for a mineralized porphyry system at depth. It is entirely conceivable that below Olympus we might find the Apollo porphyry system’s down plunge extension or another porphyry intrusion altogether. This model is directly comparable to the Marmato mine located less than 4 kilometres away and along the same mountain slope. Marmato hosts a CBM vein system similar to Olympus, which lies atop a porphyry at depth. We are truly blessed with remarkable geology. Hydrothermal fluid systems this robust in both nature and scale are exceedingly rare globally.”

TORONTO, March 7, 2023 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from three underground drill holes completed at the Olympus target which forms part of the Company’s Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. Mineralization at Olympus is characterized by zones of sheeted, late-stage carbonate base metal (“CBM”) veins and veinlets impregnating either porphyry diorite host rock or schist host rock. The Olympus target area measures 600 metres north-south by 400 metres east-west. Previously, the Company announced drilling results from drilling in the northern portion of the Olympus target area which included discovery hole OLCC-3 which averaged 301.9 metres @ 1.11 g/t AuEq (see press release dated March 15, 2022).

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1 and 2)

Assay results for underground drill holes OLCU-1 to OLCU-3 are announced in this press release. All three holes were drilled from an underground chamber constructed within shallow ancestral underground workings located approximately 280 metres to the west and northwest of the current known northern extent of the Apollo porphyry deposit.

Assay results and geological observations are summarized below.

OLCU-2 was drilled northeastwards at a shallow dip below old workings from the underground chamber to a maximum depth of 331.8 metres. The hole was drilled orthogonally to CBM veins mapped in higher levels within the historical workings. The hole intersected two zones of polymetallic CBM veins and veinlets returning the following results:

  • 55.25 metres @ 1.91 g/t gold equivalent from 172.6 metres including 7.45 metres @ 8.69 g/t gold equivalent, and
  • 47.17 metres @ 0.94 g/t gold equivalent from 284.15 metres downhole.

Both mineralized zones consist of multiple polymetallic CBM veins and veinlets hosting pyrite, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, and galena. The sheeted vein systems are associated with intense sericite alteration and overprint older, potassic altered porphyry diorites containing magnetite and quartz-sulphide, porphyry veins.

Drill hole OLCU-3 was drilled in a NNE direction at a shallow dip from the underground chamber to a final depth of 290.2 metres and intersected a CBM vein zone with similar characteristics to those described in OLCU-2 and grading 0.81 g/t gold equivalent over 17.45 metres. The CBM zone is associated with intense sericite alteration and this mineralized system overprints potassically altered, porphyry diorite.

Hole OLCU-1 failed to intersect the targeted CBM zone due to drilling problems related to faulting and a historical mining cavity.

The current underground drilling and previously reported Olympus drill results (all summarized in Figure 1) outline multiple CBM vein zones covering an area of 600 metres north-south by- 400 metres east-west which is open to the NW and SE as the vein systems strike in this direction.

The CBM vein intercepts in OLCU-2 are located only 280 metres to the northwest of the known extent of Apollo porphyry system mineralization intercepted in step out drill hole APC-17. Drill hole APC-17 was an important step out hole which significantly extended the size of the Apollo deposit northwards returning a long intercept of 547.65 metres @ 1.03 g/t gold equivalent (see press release date November 29, 2022). This hole was terminated at 912.8 metres due to rig capacity limitations and bottomed in strong mineralization with the final 2.75 metres averaging 1.56 g/t gold and 9 g/t silver.

Interpretation work undertaken by the Company’s geological team has, to date, identified three zones of sheeted CBM vein systems which overprint both the inter-mineral breccia within the Apollo porphyry system and then continue to the northwest through the Olympus system. Additionally, porphyry style mineralization has been observed throughout Olympus drill core and underground mapping. As a result, it is entirely possible that the inter-mineral breccia making up the Apollo porphyry system (which plunges to depth as the system is traced northwards) or another porphyry intrusion might lie below the Olympus vein system. This model is directly analogous to the Marmato mine located approximately three kilometres along strike to the southeast where a CBM vein system lies above a porphyry system (Marmato Deeps).

Recovery rate assumptions are speculative as no metallurgical work has been completed to date. No top cut has been applied.

Reconnaissance drilling south of the Apollo porphyry system: Two drill holes (APC-32 and APC-34) were completed to test a surface soil anomaly for copper which is located 150 metres south of the southern limit of the currently defined Apollo porphyry system. The holes were collared from a newly constructed Pad 8 and drilled steeply northwards and westwards respectively, below the soil anomaly. Both holes intersected potassically altered porphyry diorites with low density of quartz-molybdenum-pyrite-pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite veins. Neither hole returned significant precious or base metal values. The Exploration team are using the trace element data to understand the location of these holes and their alteration patterns in comparison with the Apollo porphyry system.

EMX Executes Agreement to Sell Råna Battery Metal Project in Norway to Kingsrose Mining

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – March 6, 2023) – EMX Royalty Corporation (NYSE American: EMX) (TSXV: EMX) (FSE: 6E9) (the “Company” or “EMX”) is pleased to announce the execution of an agreement to sell its Råna battery metal project in Norway (the “Project“) (see Figure 1) to Kingsrose Mining Limited, a publicly traded ASX-listed company. The agreement provides EMX with cash payments and work commitments during a one-year option period, and upon exercise of the option, EMX will receive additional work commitments, advance royalty payments, milestone payments and a 2.5% NSR royalty.

The Råna nickel-copper project was acquired by EMX in 2022 as part of a regional assessment program for nickel-copper sulfide deposits and covers a prospective mafic-ultramafic intrusive system in northern Norway with outcropping zones of nickel and copper-rich sulfide mineralization. The Råna project has seen historic production from multiple prospects on the property, but relatively little modern exploration.

Kingsrose is a well-capitalized, Perth-based company that had recent success at the Way Linggo gold and silver deposit in Indonesia. EMX looks forward to working closely with Kingsrose to advance the Råna project.

Commercial Terms Overview. Via an arm’s length transaction, Kingsrose can acquire 100% interest in the Råna project by a) making A$30,000 cash payment upon execution and b) making another cash payment of A$100,000 and spending a minimum of A$150,000 on exploration during a 12-month option period. Upon exercise of the option, Kingsrose will:

  • Provide EMX with a 2.5% NSR royalty interest in the Project. On or before the eighth anniversary after closing, Kingsrose has the option to purchase 0.5% of the NSR on the Project by paying EMX A$1,200,000.
  • To maintain its interest in the Project, Kingsrose will spend additional exploration expenditures of A$150,000 by the second anniversary, A$350,000 by the third anniversary, and A$350,000 by the fourth anniversary of the agreement, respectively, for a total of A$1,000,000 in exploration expenditures.
  • EMX will receive annual advance royalty (“AAR“) payments of A$25,000 commencing on the third anniversary of the agreement, with the AAR payment increasing 10% each year thereafter (but capped at an annual payment of A$75,000).
  • A milestone cash payment of A$250,000 will be made to EMX upon completion of the first 10,000 meters of drilling at the Project.
  • An additional milestone cash payment of A$500,000, will be made to EMX upon disclosure of a maiden mineral resource.

Råna Project Overview. EMX’s Råna Project covers the unexplored extension of a well-known mafic-ultramafic intrusion near Narvik, Norway. The intrusion hosts magmatic sulfide nickel-copper mineralization at multiple prospects including the Bruvann Nickel Mine which produced 8.2 million tonnes at an average grade of 0.52% nickel, 0.1% copper, and 0.02% cobalt1 (the Bruvann mine lies to the northwest of the EMX land position – see Figure 2). Patterns of metal enrichment and depletion across the area suggest potential for additional sulfide deposits, including PGE-rich types, elsewhere in the intrusion.

EMX controls a large land position which includes the majority of the intrusive complex, contact zones and peripheral mineral occurrences. Additional unrelated copper and zinc occurrences are found within the license and suggest multiple target styles and a fertile metallogenic district.

More information on the Project can be found at www.EMXroyalty.com.

Comments on Nearby and Adjacent Properties. The historic mines and deposits discussed in this news release provide context for the Projects, which occur in a similar geologic setting, but this is not necessarily indicative that the Projects host similar quantities, grades or styles of mineralization.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Encounters Further Silver Mineralization and Returns to Processing Material at its Mill

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 3, 2023) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce it is again processing mineralized material at its 125 TPD pilot plant. The mill is currently being fine tuned with low grade material to set the recovery parameters. Having resolved the issues with pouring silver dore bars, and having made the necessary related modification to the mill circuit, the Company intends to soon process higher grade material. To date the mill has been operating to specifications with non-detectable values for silver in the tailings produced from the shaker table.

The Company has one outstanding order for 50 kilograms of silver including credits for any contained copper or gold. The purchaser of those 50 kilograms has indicated a willingness to acquire up to 500 kilograms of silver on one week’s written notice. The Company is also in discussions with other potential purchasers.

Like any responsible producer, SBMI operates its own assay lab. SBMI continues to implement a strategic sampling program using that lab to enable it to maintain silver grade control to the mill.

Below is a list of recent highlight assays and photos from the vein in the upper adit at the Buckeye Mine, from an area to which the Company recently drifted behind the Treasure Room (not all assay results are reported). Note that all of the samples listed and photographed below are from the upper adit 420ft – 444ft from the entrance of the upper adit.

The Company currently has approximately 750 tons of run of mine mineralized material at the minesite ready for transportation to and processing at the mill site in Globe.

QAQC

All the samples above were collected by SBMI’s field team. Samples were collected and placed in sample bags with their appropriate tag and processed at the Company’s own assay lab. Like any responsible producer, the Company owns its own assay lab and regularly takes samples as part of its production process.

The samples analyzed by SBMI at its facility near Globe, Arizona were processed through the Lab Jaw Crusher, Lab Hammer Mill and Splitter Box into an aliquot. Most of the pulverized aliquot was mixed with a flux and flour combination and melted in a crucible at 1,850 degree Fahrenheit, with the remainder being logged and archived. Upon cooling, the poured melt was in the form of a metal button and slag, following which a bone ash cupel was utilized to eliminate the lead in the button to form a bead. The bead was then weighed, following which a solution of 6 to 1 distilled water to nitric acid was utilized to dissolve the silver in the bead at approximately 175 degrees Fahrenheit. A much more detailed description of the process and a picture of the assay lab can be found at https://www.silverbulletmines.com/qaqcassaylab.

Readers should be aware that the SBMI facilities have been designed for quick production grade control and are not ISO compliant; however, duplicate sampling with other ISO labs has been done on past samples with good correlation.

Mr. Robert G. Komarechka, P.Geo., an independent consultant, has reviewed and verified SBMI’s work referred to herein, and is the Qualified Person for this release.
