All six metallurgical drill holes were drilled from surface using wide diameter PQ core (85mm) between June 6 and August 10, 2022. The purpose of the program was to collect samples from areas scheduled for mining in the first 3 years of development. These assays presented are a result of one eighth split core, with the remaining seven eighths being sent to Bureau Veritas metallurgical laboratory in Vancouver, Canada for test work to assist in the design of optimised recoveries. As this is a metallurgical program, the holes were designed to intersect some vein sets at an oblique angle in-order to maximise mineralized sample recovery and as such, while drill widths does not necessarily represent true widths, the results provide information on the continuity of Au grades. The URW1 lode is interpreted to strike north-south and dip steeply east and has a true width of approximately 1 to 7 metres. The Murau lodes are interpreted to strike east-west with a moderate southerly dip with multiple lodes of true-width between 0.3 and 4 metres. The SKL lodes are dip subhorizontally, with true-widths of between 0.3 and 1 metre.

Lion One CEO Walter Berukoff commented, “These latest results underscore the continuous, high-grade nature of the mineralization at Tuvatu. Each batch of drill results adds enormous value to the project in both addition of ounces to the total metal budget as well as clarification of important upside potential.”

Qualified Person
In accordance with National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”), Sergio Cattalani, P.Geo, Senior Vice President Exploration, is the Qualified Person for the Company and has reviewed and is responsible for the technical and scientific content of this news release.

QAQC Procedures
Lion One adheres to rigorous QAQC procedures above and beyond basic regulatory guidelines in conducting its sampling, drilling, testing, and analyses. The Company utilizes its own fleet of diamond drill rigs, using PQ, HQ and NQ sized drill core rods. Drill core is logged and split by Lion One personnel on site. Samples are delivered to and analysed at the Company’s geochemical and metallurgical laboratory in Fiji. Duplicates of all samples with grades above 0.5 g/t Au are both re-assayed at Lion One’s lab and delivered to ALS Global Laboratories in Australia (ALS) for check assay determinations. All samples for all high-grade intercepts are sent to ALS for check assays. All samples are pulverized to 80% passing through 75 microns. Gold analysis is carried out using fire assay with an AA finish. Samples that have returned grades greater than 10.00 g/t Au are then re-analysed by gravimetric method. For samples that return greater than 0.50 g/t Au, repeat fire assay runs are carried out and repeated until a result is obtained that is within 10% of the original fire assay run. For samples with multiple fire assay runs, the average of duplicate runs is presented. Lion One’s laboratory can also assay for a range of 71 other elements through Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES), but currently focuses on a suite of 9 important pathfinder elements. All duplicate anomalous samples are sent to ALS labs in Townsville QLD and are analysed by the same methods (Au-AA26, and Au-GRA22 where applicable). ALS also analyses for 33 pathfinder elements by HF-HNO3-HClO4 acid digestion, HCl leach and ICP-AES (method ME-ICP61).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Goldshore Intersects 192.75m @ 1.02 g/t Au from 94.45m depth in MMD-22-051

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 29, 2022) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Moss Lake Gold Project“).

Highlights:

  • Results for five holes, drilled to infill historic but poorly surveyed drill sections in the Main Zone, have confirmed higher-grade gold mineralization within a large volume of well mineralized diorite with best intercepts of:
  • 192.75m @ 1.02 g/t Au from 94.45m depth in MMD-22-051, including
    • 62m @ 1.49 g/t Au from 113m and

  • 28.0m @ 1.51 g/t Au from 580.0m depth in MMD-22-046, including
    • 11.0m @ 3.45 g/t Au from 587.0m
  • 9.75m @ 1.78 g/t Au from 282.55m depth in MMD-22-047
  • 34.25m @ 1.03 g/t Au from 209.0m depth in MMD-22-049, including
    • 3.8m @ 6.98 g/t Au from 239.45m

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “As we have been discussing for some time, the continued results of intersecting wide zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization underpin our belief that the Moss Lake Deposit has potential to develop an initial high-grade phase 1 open pit within the larger low-grade open pit operation. It can be seen that the projected grade shell of +1.0 g/t Au is significant at this early stage, and we will look to further explore these high grade areas, as we continue with our program.”

Approximate collar coordinates in NAD 83, Zone 15N

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

As with the historic holes, these holes intersected several broad zones of low-grade mineralization within the altered diorite intrusion host. Examples include 41.0m @ 0.79 g/t Au from 439.0m depth and 46.75m @ 0.46 g/t Au from 519.0m in MMD-22-041; 88.0m @ 0.48 g/t Au from 388.0m in MMD-22-042; 46.0m @ 0.82 g/t Au from 65.0m39.55m @ 0.71 g/t Au from 306.45m and 74.65m @ 0.66 g/t Au from 421.9m in MMD-22-046; 63.0m @ 0.37 g/t Au from 141.9m and 51.35m @ 0.73 g/t Au from 282.55m in MMD-22-047; and 57.0m @ 0.51 g/t Au from 353.0m in MMD-22-049. The long intercept in MMD-22-051 of 192.75m @ 1.02 g/t Au from 94.45m is similar but higher grade.

All these low-grade zones occur as envelopes to higher-grade structures that form a three-dimensional, anastomosing shear network that has developed in response to strain on the altered diorite intrusion. Results include the broad zones of +1 g/t Au mineralization shown in the highlights (e.g., 192.75m @ 1.02 g/t Au from 94.45m depth in MMD-22-051) and several narrow high-grade intervals, including 1.0m @ 9.14 g/t Au from 449.0m depth in MMD-22-041; 1.0m @ 12.7 g/t Au from 441.0m, 0.9m @ 9.99 g/t Au from 468.1m and 1.0m @ 16.6 g/t Au from 587.0m in MMD-22-046; 0.85m @ 5.93 g/t Au from 290.7m in MMD-22-047; 0.45m @ 8.22 g/t Au from 30.55m, 0.75m @ 12.0 g/t Au from 421.25m, 0.55m @ 9.93 g/t Au from 306.95m and 0.65m @ 15.1 g/t Au from 365.35m in MMD-22-049; and 1.0m @ 14.0 g/t Au from 159.0m and 1.0m @ 10.6 g/t Au from 256.0m in MMD-22-051.

Geological modelling of the altered diorite host rock and anastomosing shear network has progressed faster than anticipated and is nearly complete. The new model will enable the interpolation of low and high-grade gold populations within constraining wireframes, which we expect will provide a more accurate estimation of the gold distribution and, therefore, the contained gold resource.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said, “These drill results confirm our contention that there are coherent zones of +1 g/t Au gold mineralization with a “sea” of low grade mineralization that should allow for the generation of a smaller, higher-grade resource at the Moss Lake Project. Drilling around these higher grade zones continues.”

Analytical and QA/QC Procedures

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

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

About Goldshore

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

About the Moss Lake Gold Project

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

The Moss Lake Gold Project hosts a number of gold and base metal rich deposits including the Moss Lake Deposit, the East Coldstream Deposit (Table 3), the historically producing North Coldstream Mine (Table 4), and the Hamlin Zone, all of which occur over a mineralized trend exceeding 20 km in length. A historical preliminary economic assessment (the “Moss Lake Historical Estimate“) was completed on the Moss Lake Gold Project in 2013 and published by Moss Lake Gold Mines Ltd. (“Moss Lake Gold Mines“)1,3. A historical mineral resource estimate (the “East Coldstream Historical Estimate“) was completed on the East Coldstream Deposit in 2011 by Foundation Resources Inc.2,3 In addition to these zones, the Moss Lake Gold Project also hosts a number of under-explored mineral occurrences which are reported to exist both at surface and in historically drilled holes. The Moss Lake Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 2.5 km length and to depths of 300 m with 376 holes completed between 1983 and 2017. The last drilling program conducted in 2016 and 2017 by Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. (“Wesdome“), which consisted of widely spaced holes along the strike extension of the deposit was successful in expanding the mineralized footprint and hydrothermal system 1.6 km to the northeast. Additionally, the deposit remains largely open to depth. In 2017, Wesdome completed an induced polarization survey which traced the potential extensions of pyrite mineralization associated with the Moss Lake Deposit over a total strike length of 8 km and spanning the entire extent of the survey grids.

The East Coldstream Deposit is a shear-hosted disseminated-style gold deposit which locally outcrops at surface. It has been drilled over a 1.3 km length and to depths of 200 m with 138 holes completed between 1988 and 2017. The deposit remains largely open at depth and may have the potential for expansion along strike. Historic drill hole highlights from the East Coldstream Deposit include 4.86 g/t Au over 27.3 m in C-10-15.

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

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

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

The qualified persons for the Moss Lake Historical Estimate are Pierre-Luc Richard, MSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and Carl Pelletier, BSc, PGeo (InnovExplo Inc), and the effective date of the Moss Lake Historical Estimate is February 8, 2013. In-Pit results are presented undiluted and in situ, within Whittle-optimized pit shells. Underground results are presented undiluted and in situ, outside Whittle-optimized pit shells. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate includes 18 gold-bearing zones and 1 envelope containing isolated gold intercepts. Whittle parameters: mining cost = C$2.28; pit slope angle = 50.0 degrees; production cost = C$9.55; mining Dilution = 5%; mining recovery = 95%; processing recovery = 80% to 85%; gold price = C$1,500. In-Pit and Underground resources were compiled at cut-off grades from 0.3 to 5.0 g/t Au (for sensitivity characterization). A cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au was selected as the official in-pit cut-off grade and a cut-off grade of 2.0 g/t Au was selected as the official underground cut-off grade. The Moss Lake Historical Estimate is based on 352 diamond drill holes (90,978 m) drilled from 1983 and 2008. A fixed density of 2.78 g/cm3 was used. A minimum true thickness of 5.0 m was applied, using the grade of the adjacent material when assayed or a value of zero when not assayed. Capping was established at 35 g/t Au, supported by statistical analysis and the high grade distribution within the deposit. Compositing was done on drill hole sections falling within the mineralized zone solids (composite = 1 m). Resources were evaluated from drill hole samples using the ID2 interpolation method in a multi-folder percent block model using Gems version 6.4. Based on geostatistics, the ellipse range for interpolation was 75m x 67.5m x 40m. The Indicated category is defined by combining the blocks within the two main zones and various statistical criteria, such as average distance to composites, distance to closest composite, quantity of drill holes within the search area. Ounce (troy) = metric tons x grade / 31.10348. Calculations used metric units (metres, tonnes and g/t). The number of metric tonnes was rounded to the nearest thousand. Any discrepancies in the totals are due to rounding effects; rounding followed the recommendations in NI 43-101.

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

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

Brandon Euthanizes Europe

Bob Moriarty
Archives
Sep 27, 2022

On February 16th the comedian running Ukraine began a massive shelling attack on the Donbas after murdering over 14,000 innocent civilians since 2014 in the region because they did not support the illegal coup d’état sponsored by the US.

In a speech given at the Munich Security Conference on February 19th the clown made it clear Ukraine wanted to regain its nuclear arsenal. Also on February 19th Brandon announced he knew Putin was about to attack Ukraine. That may have had something to do with Ukraine’s planned invasion of the Donbas scheduled for early March.

Russia responded with a preemptive attack on Ukraine on February 24th. Brandon called for more sanctions on Russia in response in addition to those imposed before Russia had done anything.

The European allies and US seized billions of dollars of Russian reserves in the west and other assets without even a shred of legal justification. The Ruble went into free fall going from 85 to the dollar on February 15th to a high of 147 on March 7th. Clearly the sanctions had an effect and cut the value of the Ruble almost in half.

Russia was prepared for yet another round of sanctions. They raised internal interest rates and demanded payment for their gas and oil in Rubles. Since then the Ruble has been the strongest currency in the world currently trading at 55 to the dollar. The Euro has fallen to below par with the Dollar, the British Pound is down over 20% and almost at par with the dollar. The sanctions hurt.

But they hurt Europe, they didn’t hurt Russia.

On March 1st I posted an article I had written in response to the sanctions. I called it The US, EU and Nato Just Committed Suicide. I’m going to take credit for being the first person in the world to write about how stupid and self-destructive the sanctions were. Since then the word suicide has been recognized by hundreds or thousands of other commentators. Everyone now understands just how much damage the sanctions have done to the economy of Europe and the US.

You see, there is no energy shortage. There is lots of natural gas available and coal and oil to any willing buyer. But at the insistence of the US upon their European sock puppets, Europe refused to agree to perfectly reasonable terms offered by Russia. This wasn’t a case of Russia refusing to sell resources to the EU. It was a case of the EU first stealing from Russia and then demanding Russia agrees to their terms.

Putin understood something that none of the “leaders” of the EU understood and most of the world still doesn’t get.

Europe needs Russia.

Russia does not need Europe.

So the cost of energy and food across the world has skyrocketed. This winter thousands of businesses in Europe are going to be forced to close because they cannot afford to pay their energy bills. Millions of Europeans are going to starve or freeze or be forced into poverty as a result of their own stupidity or all three at the same time.

I’ve been amazed because the solution to the problem was so simple but the actions of the “leaders” of the EU so obtuse.

Regardless of how they feel about the war, right or wrong on anyone’s part, if the sanctions hurt Europe and didn’t hurt Russia, all the EU had to do was declare victory and announce the end of the sanctions. Agree to pay on the terms Russia has offered to everyone and the economy recovers from this latest stupidity in government in a few months.

If Germany needs natural gas as a feedstock for their chemical plants and to provide heat for businesses and homes, all they had to do was turn on the Nord Stream II pipeline.

That was until September 27th when the US blew up Nord Stream I and Nord Stream II. Which Brandon has promised was in the works long ago.

So we are in one of those good news, bad news places. The good news is that thousands and perhaps millions of Europeans led by the Germans are going to starve, freeze and go bankrupt this year.

Because of this act of war on the part of the US, the probability of a nuclear exchange just went through the roof. We are closer to nuclear annihilation than we have ever been in history.

The bad news of course is that no matter how grim this winter is in Europe, they are totally fucked next year. Turning on the tap is no longer an option even if the EU sobered up.

Welcome to World War III brought to you by Brandon and the idiot neo-cons surrounding him. Is anyone stupid enough to believe Russia will not respond in kind?

Lion One Closes C$13.36 Million “Bought Deal” Public Offering of Units

Lion One Metals, Proven and Probable

North Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 28, 2022) – Lion One Metals Limited (TSXV: LIO) (OTCQX: LOMLF) (ASX: LLO) (“Lion One” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal offering of 17,348,000 units (the “Units“) (including 1,108,0000 Units issued pursuant to Eight Capital and Canaccord Genuity Corp.’s (together, the “Underwriters“) partial exercise of the over-allotment option granted to the Underwriters) at a price of $0.77 per Unit for gross proceeds of $13,357,960 (the “Offering“).

Each Unit consists of a common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share“) and one-half (1/2) of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share warrant, a “Warrant“) to purchase a Common Share at a price of $1.05 for a period of 36 months following the closing date of the Offering. In the event that the volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSX-V“), or such other principal exchange on which the Common Shares are then trading, is greater than $1.75 for a period of twenty consecutive trading days at any time after the closing of the Offering, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving written notice to the holder thereof and in such case the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by the Company.

Pursuant to the Offering the Company issued 1,040,880 compensation warrants (the “Compensation Warrants“) to the Underwriters. Each Compensation Warrant is exercisable to purchase a Common Share at a price of $0.77 for a period of 36 months following the closing date of the Offering.

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for exploration and development of the Company’s Tuvatu Gold Project.

The Offering was made by way of prospectus supplement dated September 22, 2022 (the “Prospectus Supplement“) to the Company’s base shelf prospectus dated May 13, 2022. Distribution of the Units issued pursuant to the Offering was insufficient to meet the TSX-V’s requirements for the listing of the Warrants so the Company has accordingly not applied to list the Warrants on the TSX-V.
