A spring sampling program collected a total of 25 rock chip and grab samples from sites in the northern sector of Eliza, which includes the newly acquired California Mine area. Analytical results derived from these samples confirm the existence of high-grade silver (“Ag”) mineralization, and the presence of significant concentrations of copper (“Cu”), lead (“Pb”) and zinc (“Zn”) associated with the silver.

Sample Highlights Include:

  • PN662703: 1290 grams per tonne (“g/t”) Ag
  • PN662717: 1180 g/t Ag; 7.70% Cu; 11.00% Pb; 13.40% Zn
  • PN662715: 632 g/t silver; 2.2% Cu; 1.49% Pb; 0.55% Zn

See Table 1 for additional results.

“Although we are in the early days of exploring Eliza, these high-grade samples provide further evidence that the Project, including the newly acquired California Patent, is an exciting and high potential area,” stated President & CEO Morgan Lekstrom. “Our exploration work continues to demonstrate the existence of high-grade silver mineralization in a historic mining district that has seen limited modern exploration work. An especially interesting aspect of the results from this recent round of sampling is the presence of high-grade copper, lead and zinc, in addition to the silver. This particular suite of metals is characteristic of vein and replacement-style mineral deposits commonly found peripheral to porphyry copper deposits. Given the recent sampling results, the potential for porphyry-related mineralization will be assessed by our geologists as we further investigate the known silver prospects and potential.”

Ongoing field work at Eliza includes soil sampling and geological mapping. A program of geophysical surveying is planned to commence in Q2-Q3, 2022. Results of the geochemical and geophysical surveys will be used to define priority drill targets ahead of an initial phase of drilling at the Project.

Technical Observations at Eliza

The geological setting at Eliza is similar to that of other mines in the area. District-scale folding of Middle Paleozoic limestone and shale formations appears to have formed open-space fault and fracture zones which channeled mineralizing fluids through chemically receptive host rocks, specifically the Devonian Guillmette and Joana Limestone formations.

The spring sampling program done at and around the historic mines found on the Eliza Project has shown that the replacement-style mineralized zones in limestone exist along axial planar faults and fracture zones and commonly weather into resistant ridges.

The assay results from the sampling program confirm observations made in the field: limestone and dolomite micro-breccia replacement zones show strong to very strong enrichments in Ag, arsenic (“As”), barium (“Ba”), Cu, manganese (“Mn”), Pb and Zn. Notable results are shown in Table 1 and Figure 1.

Qualified Person

Technical aspects of this press release have been reviewed and approved by Philip Mulholland, a Certified Professional Geologist (CPG) with the American Institute of Professional Geologists, a contractor of the Company and the designated Qualified Person (QP) under National Instrument 43-101.

Quality Assurance, Quality Control Sample Security

The following measures were taken to ensure sample security: samples were submitted to AAS American Analytical Services; only authorized personnel attended the samples; samples were collected and recorded by Silver Hammer geologists and then shipped to the AAS lab in Osburn, Idaho.

Analysis Suite

All samples were analyzed by AAS using conventional assay methods involving fire assaying of 50-gram charges of pulverized sample material for gold and silver, with Fire Assay ICP Finish (FA-ICP); AND ICP-35 Element Scan (M-ICP-35).

Audits or reviews

Internal review of sampling techniques, data, and results by the Company’s geologist’s and management was routinely done through the course of the project.

Blanks and Duplicates

For quality assurance/quality control purposes, the batches of samples sent to AAS for assaying and ICP analyses were regularly infused with ‘duplicate’, and ‘blank’ samples. The ‘duplicates’ were created during sample preparation at AAS. The laboratory also provided analytical results for their own reference samples for further QA/QC check.

Labrador Gold Intersects 54.17 G/T Au Over 0.95m at the Big Vein Target

TORONTO, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the continued extension of the Big Vein Zone to the southwest with an intersection of 54.17 g/t Au over 0.95m as well as the intersection of near surface gold mineralization from initial diamond drilling of the Pristine target at its 100% controlled Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre drill program at Kingsway.

At Big Vein, the intercept of 54.17g/t Au over 0.95m in hole K-22-122 contains visible gold and is the furthest intersection of the Big Vein Zone to the southwest drilled to date. This extends the strike length of the zone to 320m and it remains open in this direction. Hole K-22-116 targeted the HTC zone and intersected 14.67 g/t over a 1m interval that also contained visible gold.

At the Pristine target the first six holes all intersected significant near surface gold mineralization, including hole K-21-109 that assayed 3.55 g/t Au over 2.33m from 17.15m that contained visible gold and hole K-21-100 that intersected 3.89 g/t Au over 3m from 53m downhole.

The initial assays from the Pristine target, located approximately 800m northeast of Big Vein along the Appleton Fault Zone, are very similar to the first reported holes from Big Vein that assayed 1.11 g/t Au over 5.50m, 5.0 g/t Au over 0.9m and 2.26 g/t Au over 7.0m in Hole K-21-01 and 1.72 g/t Au over 3.0min Hole K-21-02 (see news release dated May 10, 2021).

The stratigraphy encountered is also very similar to Big Vein, with the mineralized Doyle Zone defined by a network of shear veining that is associated with a highly fractured sandstone in fault contact with a deformed black graphitic shale.

“We are very pleased with the initial results from the Pristine target which proves our interpretation of the existence of a gold occurrence not too far up ice from the pristine gold grains found in till. Pristine is the third of three targets tested to date to show significant near surface gold assays, a result of our systematic exploration strategy at Kingsway and the prospectivity of the Appleton Fault Zone,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of the LabGold. “We have named the mineralized zone at Pristine the Doyle Zone after our friend and strong supporter James Doyle, who passed away suddenly, and much too early, in late 2020. James helped and advised us in every financing since the start of Labrador Gold in 2017, and gave us support in the market, often when no-one else was interested. James would have loved witnessing all the exploration activity in central Newfoundland over the last two years and would have been working the telephones daily. We will endeavour to ensure that the Doyle Zone lives up to the big personality of its namesake.”

Pristine Target and Appleton Fault Zone

The visible gold found in hole K-21-109 drilled into the Doyle Zone is the third occurrence of visible gold found, after Big Vein and Golden Glove, along the Appleton Fault Zone. The Doyle Zone is the furthest northeast, approximately 4.5km from Golden Glove which lies close to the southern property boundary. The Doyle Zone lies to the east of a fault with a major damage zone approximately 30m wide which may represent the expression of the Appleton Fault Zone in this area. Further work is necessary to determine if this is, in fact, the the case or if it is a major splay of the Appleton Fault Zone. In either case it is a significant structure associated with gold mineralization in the Doyle Zone.

The most detailed exploration along the Appleton Fault Zone to date has been over an approximately 2km section from just southwest of Big Vein to the Pristine target, leaving the remaining 10km length of the fault zone relatively underexplored. This will be a major focus of LabGold’s upcoming field program.

Granite Creek Copper Retains SGS Canada for Updated Preliminary Economic Assessment on High-Grade Carmacks Copper-Gold-Silver Project in Yukon Canada

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 3, 2022 / Granite Creek Copper Ltd. (TSXV:GCX)(OTCQB:GCXXF) (“Granite Creek” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has retained SGS to complete an updated Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) on the Carmacks project. The PEA will use the 2022 Resource Estimate (Table 1), consisting of 36.2 million tonnes (Mt) in Measured and Indicated categories (M&I), grading 1.07% CuEq (0.81% Cu, 0.26g/t Au, 3.23g/t Ag and 0.011% Mo) for a total of 651 million pounds (Mlbs) of contained M&I copper and an additional 38 Mlbs Cu Inferred as the main input. Building off a 2017 PEA(1), the updated study will encompass the following:

  • Significant Increase in Contained Copper – The 2022 resource estimate marked a 43% increase in contained copper over the previous estimate referenced(2)
  • Inclusion of Sulphide Processing – As of the publication of the 2022 resource estimate the Carmacks project consists of roughly 50/50 sulfide and oxide resources by contained metal. The Company sees the inclusion of sulphide resources as a significant potential value driver having a positive impact on the economics of the project; and
  • High Proportion of Resources Modeled in Three Conceptual Open Pits – 96% of the 2022 resources are contained within the conceptual pits (Figure 1). With a high percentage of current resources reporting in conceptual pits the cash cost per pound of copper is expected to be significantly lower when compared to a similar sized underground operation.

Timothy Johnson, Granite Creek President & CEO, stated, “The launch of the updated Preliminary Economic Assessment study marks a major milestone in the development of the Carmacks deposit at a time when commodities demand is seeing rapid growth. The Carmacks project is well-positioned by its location, access to infrastructure, and proximity to the operating, high-grade Minto mine just to the north. Both copper and molybdenum have been deemed by the Canadian government to be ‘critical minerals‘ based on their role in the transition to a low-carbon economy which we expect will provide prolonged price strength well into the future. We look forward to continuing to bring positive news as we develop this high-grade copper project.”

Rover Metals Announces Start of Phase 1 Exploration at Tobin Gold Project, Winnemucca, NV, USA

Rover Metals Corp.
Rover Metals Corp.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FSE:4XO) (“Rover” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the start of its Phase 1 Exploration Program at its 100% owned Tobin Gold Project, Winnemucca, NV, USA. Rover has engaged a renowned Carlin gold geologist to assist in the planning of the Phase 1 program.

Tobin Gold Project
In February 2022, Rover acquired a 100% interest in the Tobin Gold Project (“Tobin”), which is comprised of 68 claims within BLM land, for a total of 1,405 acres (or 569 hectares). Tobin is a Carlin-style gold system set in Mesozoic rocks. The project is located about 40 km from the operating Phoenix Gold Mine, which is owned by Nevada Gold Mines, a joint venture between Newmont and Barrick. Tobin is also located about 60 km from i-80 Gold’s Lone Tree Gold Mine, 50 kms from SSR’s Marigold Mine and is in close proximity to other proven gold deposits owned by i-80 Gold, SSR Mining, and Kinross. See property map below for more details.

The property sits in the historical Mt. Tobin mercury district within an area of widespread silicification and banded chalcedony veins over an area of several square kilometers. Both structural and strata bound jasperoids are present in the adjoining Triassic and Paleozoic carbonate and fine-grained clastic sediments along the range-front structure as well as higher in the range. The prospect area was identified during a BLEG stream sediment sampling program. Follow up rock chip sampling along and above the range front confirmed that there are multiple structures carrying mineralization. Gold values run as high as 2.3 g/t Au, with many samples having gold content between 200 ppb Au and 1000 ppb Au. Pathfinder elements run as high as 200 ppm Sb, 1100 ppm As and 29 ppm Hg. Mineralization at the Tobin Project appears to be localized along two subparallel trends. The first is the range-front fault, and the second is structural zone located several tens of meters above the valley that trends somewhat obliquely to the range-front. To date, the better mineralized rocks were largely collected from this second structure located higher on the mountain front.

Proximity Map – Tobin Gold Project

Judson Culter, CEO at Rover Metals, states, “The Tobin Gold Project is our first low-cost gold exploration project. We believe that future drill programs will be reverse circulation (“RC”) drill programs. Tobin is located in the mining friendly jurisdiction of Nevada, in the Battle Mountain region, which has seen significant consolidation in the past several years.”

Annual Report
Rover has SEDAR filed its Annual 2021 Comparative Financial Statements and Management Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”) for the years ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020. The 2021 MD&A lays out management’s performance and significant milestones accomplished in 2021.

Technical information in this news release has been approved by David White, P.Geo., Technical Advisor of Rover and a Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.

Group Ten Reports 13.2 Meters of 3.33% Nickel Equivalent Within 401 Meters Continuous Mineralization from Resource Expansion Drilling at Stillwater West Critical Minerals Project in Montana, USA

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 3, 2022 / Group Ten Metals Inc. (TSX.V:PGE; OTCQB: PGEZF; FSE:5D32) (the “Company” or “Group Ten”) today reports wide, high-grade intervals of nickel sulphide with palladium, platinum, rhodium, cobalt, copper and gold in a third tranche of drill results from the 14-hole resource expansion campaign completed at the Company’s flagship Stillwater West PGE-Ni-Cu-Co + Au project in Montana, USA.

Results continue to support the Company’s priority objective of expanding the October 2021 inaugural mineral resource estimates with multiple wide and highly mineralized intervals returned in step-out drilling in the DR-Hybrid deposit area at Chrome Mountain (see Table 1 and Figure 1). Drilling in 2021 focused on resource expansion in three of the five deposit areas delineated by the 2021 estimates. Similar wide and well-mineralized intervals have now been reported from all three deposit areas as announced December 20, 2021, and March 7, 2022. Mineralization remains open to expansion along trend and at depth in all five deposit areas, that are in the 12-kilometer-long resource area within the broader 32-kilometer-long land package in the lower Stillwater Igneous Complex (see Figure 2).

Live Webinar with Q&A

Group Ten President & CEO, Michael Rowley, will be joined by newly appointed Vice-President Exploration, Danie Grobler, for a live webinar on Wednesday, May 4th at 10am PT (1pm ET). To register click here or the thumbnail.

Highlights:

  • CM2021-05 returned 400.8 meters of continuous battery and precious metal mineralization grading 0.30% Nickel Equivalent (“NiEq”), equal to 0.80 g/t Palladium Equivalent (“PdEq”), with successive contained higher-grade intervals including 96 meters of 0.60% NiEq (1.56 g/t PdEq) and including 13.2 meters of 3.33% NiEq (8.88 g/t PdEq) as 2.31% Ni, 1.51 g/t Pd+Pt+Au+Rh (“4E”), 0.35% Cu and 0.115% Co starting at 37.6 meters. This is one of the widest high-grade intercepts ever recorded in the Stillwater district.
  • The results from CM2021-05 represent an important new discovery with the same distinctive signature of high-grade nickel sulphide, platinum group metals and gold as encountered in CM2020-04, which returned 8.5 meters of 1.74% NiEq (or 4.65 g/t PdEq) within a broad mineralized package located approximately 125 meters to the west. This zone remains open to further expansion with additional drilling.
  • CM2021-06 returned 0.26% NiEq (0.71 g/t PdEq) over 345.0 meters, including 75.4 meters of 0.37% NiEq, or 0.99 g/t PdEq, and a second, lower interval with 148.4 meters of 0.30% NiEq, or 0.79 g/t PdEq.
  • CM2021-04 returned 247.2 meters of 0.21% NiEq (0.57 g/t PdEq) mineralization including two long intervals at higher grades.
  • Results also continue to highlight the potential for significant co-product rhodium values at Stillwater West, with drill samples in Chrome Mountain holes CM2021-04, -05, and -06 up to 0.36 g/t Rh within the mineralized horizons. At recent values, rhodium trades at more than 16 times the value of platinum and 8 times the value of palladium on a spot price basis at over USD 16,000 per ounce. Sibanye-Stillwater, adjacent to Group Ten’s Stillwater West project, is the primary US producer. Supply constraints for rhodium have supported rising prices since 2017.
  • Assay results remain pending from five holes in the HGR deposit area at Iron Mountain and portions of holes CZ2021-01 and IM2021-04, in addition to rhodium assay results on a number of mineralized intervals reported to date.

These results, in addition to results released March 7, 2022 and December 20, 2021, demonstrate significant potential to expand the October 2021 mineral resource estimates with multiple long intervals at grades well above the 0.20% NiEq cut-off grade used in that study (see bolded assay values on Table 1). Potential is also shown to expand existing resources at higher cut-off grades, such as 0.35% and 0.50% NiEq (red values and shaded rows, respectively, on Table 1). Moreover, as shown in Figures 1 to 4, these results provide important intercepts in step-out drill holes located up to several hundred meters from the resource estimate block models.

Dr. Danie Grobler, Group Ten’s Vice-President of Exploration, commented “I am excited to extend my experience obtained over the past two decades at the Platreef in the northern Bushveld Complex to Group Ten’s Stillwater West project. We see significant comparability with Platreef-style mineralization in the lower Stillwater Complex and in particular, early evidence of higher-grade Flatreef pegmatoidal-style mineralization targets within the project’s layered magmatic stratigraphy.”

Michael Rowley, President and CEO, commented, “The high-grade intercept in hole CM2021-05 is the latest in a series of exciting discoveries made by our team in the lower Stillwater complex through the development of a new predictive geologic model for this famously metal-rich district. This notable intercept demonstrates the same high tenor nickel sulphide mineralization as a similar interval in CM2020-04, 125 meters away, and is in an area that is completely outside of the current resource block model. It also represents one of the widest high-grade battery and precious metal intercepts to date in the Stillwater district. Further step-outs on this new target, situated between the existing DR and Hybrid deposit areas, are a priority for the coming season. Overall, we continue to see confirmation of a large mineralized system with an impressive endowment of eight of the commodities listed as critical by the US government. We look forward to reporting additional remaining drill results from the 2021 Iron Mountain drilling, exploration plans for 2022, and other news in the near term.”

Highlighted significant mineralized intercepts are presented above. Grade-thickness values cover significant mineralized intervals with total palladium and nickel equivalent grade-thickness determined by multiplying the thickness of continuous mineralization (in meters) by the palladium equivalent grade (in grams/tonne) to provide gram-meter values (g-m) or by multiplying the nickel equivalent grade (in percent) to provide percent-meter values as shown. Total nickel and palladium equivalent calculations reflect total gross metal content using long term metal prices (all USD): $7.00/lb nickel (Ni), $3.50/lb copper (Cu), $20.00/lb cobalt (Co), $1,000/oz platinum (Pt), $1,800/oz palladium (Pd), and $1,600/oz gold (Au). Equivalent values have not been adjusted to reflect metallurgical recoveries. Total metal equivalent values include both base and precious metals. Intervals are reported as drilled widths and are believed to be representative of the actual width of mineralization.

About Stillwater West

Group Ten is rapidly advancing the Stillwater West PGE-Ni-Cu-Co + Au project towards becoming a world-class source of low-carbon, sulphide-hosted nickel, copper, and cobalt, critical to the electrification movement, as well as key catalytic metals including platinum, palladium and rhodium used in catalytic converters, fuel cells, and the production of green hydrogen. Stillwater West positions Group Ten as the second-largest landholder in the Stillwater Complex, with a 100%-owned position adjoining and adjacent to Sibanye-Stillwater’s PGE mines in south-central Montana, USA1. The Stillwater Complex is recognized as one of the top regions in the world for PGE-Ni-Cu-Co mineralization, alongside the Bushveld Complex and Great Dyke in southern Africa, which are similar layered intrusions. The J-M Reef, and other PGE-enriched sulphide horizons in the Stillwater Complex, share many similarities with the highly prolific Merensky and UG2 Reefs in the Bushveld Complex. Group Ten’s work in the lower Stillwater Complex has demonstrated the presence of large-scale disseminated and high-sulphide battery metals and PGE mineralization, similar to the Platreef in the Bushveld Complex2. Drill campaigns by the Company, complemented by a substantial historic drill database, have delineated five deposits of Platreef-style mineralization across a core 12-kilometer span of the project, all of which are open for expansion into adjacent targets. Multiple earlier-stage Platreef-style and reef-type targets are also being advanced across the remainder of the 32-kilometer length of the project based on strong correlations seen in soil and rock geochemistry, geophysical surveys, geologic mapping, and drilling.

About Group Ten Metals Inc.

Group Ten Metals Inc. is a TSX-V-listed Canadian mineral exploration company focused on the development of high-quality platinum, palladium, nickel, copper, cobalt, and gold exploration assets in top North American mining jurisdictions. The Company’s core asset is the Stillwater West PGE-Ni-Cu-Co + Au project adjacent to Sibanye-Stillwater’s high-grade PGE mines in Montana, USA. Group Ten also holds the high-grade Black Lake-Drayton Gold project adjacent to Treasury Metals’ development-stage Goliath Gold Complex in northwest Ontario, which is currently under an earn-in agreement with an option to joint venture whereby Heritage Mining may earn up to a 90% interest in the project by completing payments and work on the project. The Company also holds the Kluane PGE-Ni-Cu-Co project on trend with Nickel Creek Platinum‘s Wellgreen deposit in Canada‘s Yukon Territory.

See More Live DataWesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (WDO:TSX) for $52M in cash and shares. Subsequent to that, we raised $25M and then received approval from the TSXV, and we were admitted for trading on June 4, 2021.  Since that time, we have been focused on a comprehensive exploration approach to the asset commencing with a VTEM geophysical survey, which will guide (is guiding) a 100,000m drill program.  Currently, we are about 20% of the way through the programand we expect to complete the program in 2022.  During this period, we will conduct extensive metallurgical test work, prepare the project from an ESG standpoint for a feasibility study, and prepare the project for the next phase of development drilling.  After which (Q1 2023) we will update the resource estimation and prepare a new preliminary economic analysis (“PEA”) – (end of Q1 2023). These are the steps we are taking to create the next Tier One Asset in Ontario, Canada.  

Let’s find out more!  Mr. Richards, please acquaint us with your flagship Moss Lake Property beginning with your location and some of your neighbors in the region.

We are apx. 120 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario on the Trans-Canada highway.  We have the flagship Moss Lake Gold project as our core focus, but in 2014 and 2015, Wesdome acquired additional lands adjacent to the Moss Lake Gold project that included Coldstream, North Coldstream, and Iris Lake to the northeast; and Hamlin Lake to the south-west.  We have a c.4m oz historical resource, estimated by Moss Lake in 2013, and had a historical PEA done in 2013 that input parameters were updated by Wesdome in 2020. The Moss Lake Property has a rich history of gold and silver production dating back to the early 1900s.

 Tell us more.

The area has been explored by prospectors for a long time, literally over 100 years.  The region of the Shebandowan Greenstone belt is a fairly complex region geologically and structurally, but the Moss Lake Project is in an area contained within intermediate to felsic volcaniclastic rocks of the northeast-trending, fault-bounded central intermediate to felsic metavolcanic belt, is vertical to steeply southeast dipping and possibly overturned. Two northeast-trending regional fault structures cross the property from northeast to southwest.  We have a domain boundary area at Moss Lake that is a sheer zone style of deposit hosted with diorite intrusions with high resistors and high chargeabilitybordered with domains of high conductors (magnetite and iron), which to the north-east and south-west are very different styles of deposit and host copper-gold-silver, and to the northeast, those elements along with lead-zinc-molybdenum and in North Coldstream, cobalt. The North Coldstream mine actually produced a copper-gold concentrate for many years in the 1940s through the 1960s, before being closed and decommissioned in 1982 due to the low copper price.

I am curious is the infrastructure still intact?

There is no infrastructure still intact at North Coldstream, as it has been decommissionedbut one day, I will look forward to mining the high-grade area of historic tailings that have been decommissioned.  But when we speak of infrastructure, there is substantial infrastructure to build a district-scale mining camp at Moss Lake.

Why do I say that? Because our land package is quite extensive and touches on the Trans-Canada highwayHighway 11 (the longest street in the worldYonge Street). With that access, we have: very inexpensive / high-capacity electric grid power; natural gas; 4 lane highway; both CN and CP Rail lines within 1 km., with a rail spur near our site; access to people / contractors / consultants and a skilled workforce in Thunder Bay, and an international airport within 120 km of our site. These are all literally on our doorstep, which makes building a large-scale mining camp in the area, extremely doable.

Let’s fast forward to 2020 when I understand a robust PEA was completed. Can you walk us through the numbers? 

Yesno problem. The 2013 PEA that was updated by Wesdome in 2020 has a number of caveats to the framework of becoming a Tier One Asset, but what we need to do is increase the size of the resource to closer to 10M oz.

The raw numbers are:

  • 128M tonnes is the mineable resource.
  • 3M oz Au gets pulled in the life of mine (“LOM”) plan [mineable pit shell(s)].
  • 45M Au is the output for a 10-year LOM, o.
  • 245K oz Au production per year for 10 years.
  • Pre-production CapEx is CA$542M.
  • Cash costs are apx. CA$926 / oz.
  • 5% discount rate.
  • You will note the recoveries are quite low at 80% in the Mian Zone and 85% in the QES Zone, and we look to increase these to mid 90%+ recoveries, which will go straight to the net present value (“NPV”) of the project.

Before we go on-site, can you share some of the key economic outputs for Moss Lake Property?

Well, the economic outputs are quite staggering in my view. The post-tax NPV of the project at the base case gold price used ($1,546) was $334M, and when sensitized up to today’s trading rangeit is anywhere from $691M to $1.1Band that is our starting point before we add any ounces to the project.

Companies at our stage of development trade at 0.3X NPV, and that puts us at an estimated share price trading range from $1.53 ($1,800 Au) to $2.59 ($2,200 Au), and today we are trading at $0.50so it is easy to see why I am excited about this project, and it is very easy to see the value creation that we can deliver on as we take steps to make this a Tier One Asset.

When we look at trading comparables on a like-for-like basis with respect to the style of deposit, jurisdiction, stage of development, etc., we are trading at a fraction of the mean of our peer group on a market cap to per ounce basis, and again, this is our starting point.  So also again, you can easily see the room for share price appreciation throughout the remainder of this year and as we head towards a resource estimation update and new PEA.  

Let’s get some boots on the ground and visit the Moss Lake Property where the company is currently undergoing a massive 100,000 Meter Drill Program.

Beginning with geophysical airborne analysis what can you share with us? What was the VTEM able to determine?

The VTEM survey ended up being an invaluable part of our analysis of this project.  Geotech and TechnoImaging did an amazing job of not only putting this together, but also putting the interpretation together for us to better identify high-probability drill targets in not just Moss Lake, but also in the northeast Coldstream area, and the south-west Hamlin Lake area. We now have 29 brand new targets that are very compelling when you look at layering: historical exploration work; historical drill data; historical production data (at North Coldstream) and then align the VTEM model with our current drilling plansit is very compelling.

Mr. Richards, I’m going to turn the controls over to you to give us an underground view of the Moss Lake Property, and have you share with us what has Market excited about the opportunity before us.

The 3D interactive model can be found on our website at this location:  Technical Analysis: Goldshore’s VTEM Results Greatly Expand the Prospectivity (goldshoreresources.com)

The 3D model is contained within the VTEM interpretation press release, which describes everything going on over the entire property.

I must admit, there is an awful lot to unpack here, but if you take away nothing else from the VTEM interpretation, I want to leave people with this: This is our Moss Lake deposit that was used for the historical PEAit contains 3.0M oz Au input, and is modeled in 3-dimensional view.

That same geophysical signature is found in 11 different areas along the strike of Moss Lake, over a distance of 12 km.  The existing resource above has a strike length of 2.5km long, the projected resource can be extrapolated over a 12km strike.  This area along the 12km strike also has known mineralization from historic drilling (all fairly similar to the Moss Lake resource)which compounds the certainty of positive drill results when we get to drilling it.

This is incredibly meaningful, and illustrates the tremendous potential Moss Lake has (irrespective of the additional potential of Coldstream and Hamlin Lake) of becoming not only a Tier One Asset but resource growth way beyond this theoretical barrier the major mining companies claim as their starting point; which is 10M oz. Au eq.

Before we leave the Moss Lake Property, multilayered question, what is the next unanswered question for Goldshore Resources, when can we expect a response, what determines success, and what can we expect as far as news flow?

I think the questions I get asked the most are: “just how big can Moss Lake be?”, and “why has no one else explored this project or this region?”, and “what makes Goldshore so special to do this?”

I appreciate there are a lot of armchair cynics looking at (and understanding how) the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt can be a district-scale mining camp like Red Lake, Timmins, or Abitibi. However, many things have changed over the past 10 years to allow for these low-grade / bulk tonnage deposits to shine technically and economically.

Detour Lake (Kirkland Lakenow Agnico Eagle) is a great example of how to take a project like this through stages of development / resource growth / production capacity phases of expansion, to becoming a generational sized / scaled mine. We are trying to follow that path, in as methodical a way as possible, in the essence of creating and maximizing shareholder value.

What has changed?

Primarily the gold price, and the trading range that now binds the gold price between $1,800 and $2,200 / oz for the foreseeable future. This not only allows for the low grade / bulk tonnage deposits to shine, but because they are so geared economically to the gold pricewhen the gold price runsthe NPV of these styles of projects goes up hundreds of millions of dollars, with every $100 increase in the gold price.

So, our focus has always been treating this as a real projectde-risking the project geologically, metallurgically, environmentally, socially, and trying to put our collective experience of building mines to work, thinking forward about project nuances down the road, and addressing them now.

So just how big can Moss Lake be?

I don’t knowbut what I do know is that we can visibly see a path to 10M oz and becoming a Tier One Asset.

Leaving the project site, let’s discuss some important topics germane to the projects . . . Is the Moss Lake Property 100% owned or do they have earn-in options? 

Moss Lake property is 100% owned by Moss Lake Project Inc., which is 100% owned by Goldshore Resources. We own 100% of the project and Wesdome is a 22% shareholder in Goldshore Resources.

Are you fully permitted?

We are permitted to conduct the exploration activities for the next period / stage of development, but these are provincial permits required for land disturbances (water usage / trail building / road building, etc.) and other small permits as well.

There will however be a comprehensive permitting exercise down the road when this goes from feasibility study to financing / construction decision.

Is the ultimate goal for Goldshore Resources to build a mine or arbitrage? 

The ultimate goal for Goldshore Resources is to build as large an economic resource as possible, and frame that resource into a viable / credible project through the PEA process. Where Goldshore takes it after this stage, is still to be definedhowever, myself and Pete Flindell (VP Exploration) have built 3 mines together in our career; and several members of our Board and Advisory Board have also built mines and run single or multi-operation mining companies over their careers. So, we are well-positioned to take this in any direction where we think we will maximize the return for our shareholders.

I have always said that partnering with a mid-tier or major mining company that has the financial / technical / project / operating experience in these types of deposits is going to maximize the value for our shareholders (and provide a liquidity event) and that may well be the case. However, nothing is certain in this world, and we have to prepare the company for all possible outcomes.

We’ve discussed the good, let’s address the bad. What can go wrong and what are your actions plan to mitigate that wrong? 

In mining, anything and everything can go wrongand it usually does.  Mining companies are classic for over-promising and under-delivering, and we are taking a conservative approach to deliver on promises and deliver on targets.

There are however a lot of challenges that delay the delivery of these targets (covid / supply chain disruptions / labor shortages etc.) but ultimately, we need to mitigate the risk of not executing in whatever / whichever way we need to do that. We need to executeand we need to deliver!

I don’t see a large degree of traditional geological / metallurgical / other technical risk in the Moss Lake project, and with its extensive infrastructure availability, it is a large mine “waiting to be built.” However, getting through the necessary steps and stages has proven to be challenging due to the delays as listed aboveand these factors continue to be delays in the steps and stages. My job is to keep the market close to all of this and to ensure that we are mitigating the risk(s) as much as possible over these next months of critical development for the Goldshore story.

Switching gears . . . Let’s discuss the people responsible for increasing shareholder value. Mr. Richards, please introduce us to your Board of Directors and Management Team, and what skill sets do they bring to Goldshore Resources?

Yesthe Board and Board Advisory Team is comprised of first-rate peoplefirst and foremost. These individuals bring a breadth of experience in capital markets, corporate governance, and corporate finance, and everyone has played a role in their careers in building large mining enterprises in some cases from small micro-cap starting points; to exponential multiples of first investment.

To highlight one individual and not name them all would be an injustice to the group, as they are all tremendous individuals with complementary and aggregated skill sets. I feel Goldshore might have the strongest Board and Advisory Board of any junior mining company in Canada today.

Who is Brett Richards and what makes him qualified for the task at hand?

Brett Richardswell, after 36 years in the mining and metals space, I have learned that you are never too old to learn new things, and just when you think you have figured it outyou realize there is more to learn.  It is why I surround myself with exceptional people who are over-achievers in their own right.  I can lead peoplebut one person cannot make a great companyexceptional teams make exceptional companies.

I have been fortunate enough to work for some great organizations and some of which I have cofounded.  Since the 1980sthose companies have included:  Co-Steel Inc., Kinross Gold, Katanga Mining, Avocet plc, Roxgold, Midnight Sun Mining, Octéa, African Thunder Platinum, and Richards Enterprises Inc. Most recently, and prior to coming to Goldshore, I worked for private equity clients such as Pala Investments, Gramercy, Genii, BNF, and the Carlyle Group.

I have a background in mechanical engineering, mineral economics, and a master’s in business administration-management engineering.  However, the more important stuff is that I am a purveyor, collector, and drinker of fine red wine, and also an avid sports enthusiast.

How about boots on the ground, who do you have on your technical team? 

Well, the key to the technical competency of the organization starts with our VP, ExplorationPete Flindell.  Pete and I have worked together on probably 10+ projects over the past 15+ years and he is a world-renowned senior geologist with experience in apx. 50 countries on every habitable continent.

Pete is a collaborative teacherwho loves to build teams; train teams; share ideas and experiences and those who have worked with Pete and under his direction, praise his geological leadership.

We have a team of about 5 senior geologists, 12 junior geologists, 12 geo techs, and about 30 drillers. Again, to mention one would do the rest of the team not mentioned an injustice, as we have built a great team of people on the ground.

Let’s get into some numbers . . . Mr. Richards, please provide the capital structure for Goldshore Resources, current shares outstanding. 

Surehere are the following high-level numbers:

  • 135M shares outstanding.
  • 5M shares out fully diluted.
  • $20M in the treasury.

Since we are covering numbers, how does Goldshore Resources compare with some of your peers?

As mentioned in the previous valuation discussion, we trade at a significant discount to our peers.  As illustrated on the chart below, we are trading at $14/ounce today and the median of our peer group is around $40/ ounce.

How many cash and cash equivalents do you have? 

CA$20M.

How much debt do you have? 

CA$0.

What is your burn rate? 

CA$2M per month (+/-).

What percentage of ownership does management have and who are the major shareholders? 

  • Management holds – 12%.
  • Wesdome – 22%.
  • Resources Fund (Europe) – 3%.
  • Brett Richards – 3%.
  • Galen McNamara – 3%.

What is the float? 

  • 135M shares outstanding.
  • 5M shares out fully diluted.
  • However, the free float is about $80M shares (as of April 19, 2022).

Are there any redundant assets on the books that we should know about?

No.

Are there any change in control fees, if yes, what is the compensation? 

Nohowever, Wesdome has ROFR rights on a change of control.

Is management charging a consultant fee for any services?

No.

In closing . . . Sir, what keeps you up at night that we don’t know about? 

In 2021, it was the pandemic and the impact it has had on the health (personal and mental health) of our employees and contractorsand now with that subsiding, I think the various macro-drivers of gold price (which present global crises and global instability):  Russia/Ukraine crisis; hyper-inflation; the US and global economic policiesbasically the headline of every newspaper is what keeps most of up at night. The world order feels like it is changing, and with that comes a lot of uncertainty about the future and that of our kids’ and grandkids’ future.   

Last question what did I forget to ask? (This is an actual question; the floor is yours) 

I think you have covered everythingbut one final note to those looking at buying Goldshore Resources: “Why do you want to buy gold?  Why do you want to buy gold equity?  What moves the needle in gold equities and separates them from other gold equities? The answers to all of these questions are better served by holding Goldshore Resources than holding any other junior gold equity in the capital markets.  

Safety, security, a hedge against inflation, a hedge against various global economic uncertainty, size, scale, resource potential, visibility to production . . . Goldshore Resources’ potential and its “Quest to 10M oz of Gold” will deliver the best result to all of those questions.

Please visit our website at https://goldshoreresources.com/

Mr. Richards, it’s been a pleasure speaking with you today, wishing you Gold Shore Resources the absolute best sir.

My pleasure.

Base Metals Energy Junior Mining Noram Lithium

Noram Completes CVZ-74 at 558.0 ft (170.1 m) with a Potential Interval of 352.0 ft (107.3 m) of Visually Rich Clays

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 28, 2022 / Sandy MacDougall, CEO of Noram Lithium Corp. (“Noram” or the “Company“) (TSXV:NRM)(OTCQB:NRVTF)(Frankfurt:N7R) is pleased to report that the Company has completed hole CVZ-74 (PH-07) on its Zeus lithium clay deposit in Nevada to a total depth of 558.0ft (170.1 m). Visual inspection of the core confirmed that clays previously shown to be high in lithium grades appeared at approximately 126.0 ft (38.4 m) and extended down to total depth of 478.0 ft (145.7 m) for a total intersection of approximately 352.0 ft (107.3 m). Variously colored mudstones, which may also contain high lithium levels were logged down to the hole’s total depth of 558.0 ft (170.1 m).

“The interval of potentially rich lithium clays in CVZ-74 appears to be one of the thickest we have encountered in all of our Clayton Valley drilling. Only the final assays will determine its true thickness and grade, but it is certainly in line lithologically with other nearby holes and is likely to be positive for the PFS” commented Brad Peek M.Sc. CPG., VP of Exploration and Qualified Person for this and all 5 of the previous drilling phases of Noram’s Zeus lithium property.

Figure 3. Comparative lithology for drill hole CVZ-74 as compared to CVZ-61 and CVZ-68, which were drilled as part of the Phase V program. CVZ-61 and CVZ-68 had long intercepts of high grade lithium. All of the lithology units except the brown mudstones have relatively high lithium concentrations in previous drill holes on the property. The histogram on the sides of CVZ-61 and CVZ-68 are the 5m composited lithium grades in ppm Li. The section has a 4X vertical exaggeration.

CVZ-74 is the fourth of the 12-hole Phase VI drilling program which is expected to upgrade approximately 175 million tonnes of the current 827 million tonne Inferred Resource to the Indicated category. Core samples from CVZ-74 have been shipped to ALS Laboratory in Reno, Nevada for assay processing. QA/QC samples have accompanied the samples as checks on the laboratory’s analyses.

Group Ten Metals Appoints Danie Grobler as Vice-President Exploration and Albie Brits as Senior Geologist to Advance the Stillwater West Critical Minerals Project in Montana, USA

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 27, 2022 / Group Ten Metals, Inc. (TSXV:PGE) (OTCQB:PGEZF) (FSE:5D32) (the “Company” or “Group Ten”) is very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Danie Grobler to the role of Vice-President, Exploration and Mr. Albie Brits to the role of Senior Geologist, as of May 1st, 2022. Dr. Grobler and Mr. Brits both have extensive senior level experience from more than two decades of advancing major deposits on the northern limb of the Bushveld Igneous Complex in South Africa including, most recently, at Ivanhoe Mines’ Platreef PGE-Ni-Cu-Au mine, which is now in construction.

The addition of Dr. Grobler and Mr. Brits to the Group Ten Metals team is an important step in the advancement of the Company’s Stillwater West project as a major U.S.-based source of critical minerals – nickel, palladium, copper, cobalt, platinum, and rhodium – in Montana’s productive and famously metal-rich Stilllwater Igneous Complex. Their expertise in similar geologic models from the giant mines of South Africa’s Bushveld Igneous Complex is expected to drive expansion of Group Ten’s inaugural NI 43-101 resource estimates, announced October 2021, which delineated five deposits totaling 1.1 billion pounds of nickel, copper and cobalt and 2.4 million ounces of palladium, platinum, rhodium and gold in Platreef-style mineralization in the lower Stillwater Igneous Complex. All deposits are open for expansion at depth and along trend within the 12-kilometer core project area, and more broadly within earlier stage targets across the 32-kilometer span of the Stillwater West PGE-Ni-Cu-Co + Au project.

Dr. Danie Grobler has more than 25 years of industry experience as an exploration and mine geologist including most recently as Head of Geology and Exploration for Ivanplats Pty Ltd (an Ivanhoe Mines company) where since 2011 he led the delineation and advancement of Ivanhoe’s world-class Platreef PGE-Ni-Cu mine on the northern limb of the Bushveld complex. Including previous experience as Project Manager at Platinum Group Metals’ at their project on the Bushveld’s northern limb, Dr. Grobler brings decades of senior level experience focused on the discovery and mining of battery and platinum group metals in ultramafic magmatic systems and has published numerous papers on Ivanhoe’s Flatreef deposit.

Dr. Danie Grobler commented, “The geological parallels between Stillwater West and the Platreef/Flatreef-type mineralized ore bodies in South Africa are truly exceptional. I am very enthusiastic to be joining the highly experienced Group Ten Metals team and am excited to be able to apply my extensive Bushveld and Platreef experience at Stillwater West, with a focus on expanding the recently announced mineral resource. Utilizing the wealth of exploration data available, our immediate goal will be to continue to identify and grow shallow, continuous high-grade Platreef-style PGE-Ni-Cu mineralization within the lower part of the Stillwater Igneous Complex.”

Mr. Albie Brits has more than 28 years focused on the advancement of projects from grassroots stage to advanced exploration and full-scale mining operations, starting at Gold Fields of South Africa and including, most recently, the role of Senior Geologist and Manager Project Geology for Ivanplats Pty Ltd (an Ivanhoe Mines company). Focused on exploration for platinum group and base metals on the northern limb of the Bushveld complex since 2001, Mr. Brits was part of the team that discovered Ivanhoe’s Flatreef deposit. He has extensive experience in the exploration of mafic-ultramafic magmatic systems and has presented and co-authored numerous papers on the Flatreef deposit.

Mr. Brits commented, “I am very excited to be joining Group Ten’s excellent Stillwater West team and looking forward to applying my experience developing geological and structural models for the feasibility study of the Platreef project to drive new success in Montana. The Stillwater district is truly world class and Stillwater West shows remarkable expansion potential based on the geologic similarities with the Bushveld complex.”https://embed.fireplace.yahoo.com/embed?ctrl=Monalixa&m_id=monalixa&m_mode=document&site=sports&os=android&pageContext=%257B%2522ctopid%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%253B1480989%2522%252C%2522hashtag%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%253B1480989%2522%252C%2522wiki_topics%2522%253A%2522Platinum_group%253BBushveld_Igneous_Complex%253BIvanhoe_Mines%253BStillwater_igneous_complex%253BMontana%253BExploration%253BSouth_Africa%253BNatural_resource%2522%252C%2522lmsid%2522%253A%2522a077000000LnOyOAAV%2522%252C%2522revsp%2522%253A%2522accesswire.ca%2522%252C%2522lpstaid%2522%253A%252231c0ceeb-bd8e-34f0-832d-e67ffef5ff62%2522%252C%2522pageContentType%2522%253A%2522story%2522%257D

Michael Rowley, President and CEO, commented, “Developments at the Stillwater Igneous Complex have generally paralleled those at the Bushveld Igneous Complex, highlighting their significant geologic similarities. For example, the discovery and large-scale production of platinum group metals from the high-grade Merensky reef deposit in the Bushveld preceded the discovery and mining of the high-grade J-M Reef deposit at Stillwater by many decades. The more recent development of the Platreef deposits, starting with Anglo American’s bulk mineable PGE-Ni-Cu Mogalakwena mines in 1993 and continuing today with Ivanhoe’s Platreef mine, have demonstrated the world-class nature of these bulk-tonnage, critical mineral systems within the Bushveld complex. Our recent discoveries of comparable bulk-tonnage Platreef-style systems at Stillwater West demonstrate the continuation of the geologic parallels between the systems and highlight the incredible potential value creation for Group Ten Metals.”

Mr. Rowley continued “The addition of two such renowned experts, literally among the very top globally in large-scale critical mineral systems, is a watershed moment in the advancement of the Stillwater West project. Their unique expertise and perspective, earned from decades of work on world-class systems in the Bushveld, will directly complement the knowledge of our existing team which has decades of experience in the Stillwater district. We look forward to further announcements including our 2022 exploration plans and further assay results from our 2021 resource expansion drill campaign in the very near term.”

About Stillwater West

Group Ten is advancing the Stillwater West PGE-Ni-Cu-Co + Au project towards becoming a world-class source of low-carbon, sulphide-hosted nickel, copper, and cobalt, critical to the electrification movement, as well as platinum, palladium and rhodium used in catalytic converters, fuel cells, and the production of green hydrogen. Stillwater West positions Group Ten as the second-largest landholder in the Stillwater Complex, with a 100%-owned position adjoining and adjacent to Sibanye-Stillwater’s PGE mines in south-central Montana, USA1. The Stillwater Complex is recognized as one of the top regions in the world for PGE-Ni-Cu-Co mineralization, alongside the Bushveld Complex and Great Dyke in southern Africa, which are similar layered intrusions. The J-M Reef, and other PGE-enriched sulphide horizons in the Stillwater Complex, share many similarities with the highly prolific Merensky and UG2 Reefs in the Bushveld Complex. Group Ten’s work in the lower Stillwater Complex has demonstrated the presence of large-scale disseminated and high-sulphide battery metals and PGE mineralization, similar to the Platreef in the Bushveld Complex2. Drill campaigns by the Company, complemented by a substantial historic drill database, have delineated five deposits of Platreef-style mineralization across a core 12-kilometer span of the project, all of which are open for expansion into adjacent targets. Multiple earlier-stage Platreef-style and reef-type targets are also being advanced across the remainder of the 32-kilometer length of the project based on strong correlations seen in soil and rock geochemistry, geophysical surveys, geologic mapping, and drilling.
