Corporate Updates

Timok Dispute Update
On January 27, 2022 the Company announced that it had suspended the filing of a Notice of Arbitration to Zijin Mining Group Ltd (“Zijin”) regarding its royalty agreement covering the Timok project in Serbia, which includes the producing Cukaru Peki copper and gold mine. This suspension followed EMX’s previous announcement of its intention to file the Notice of Arbitration to formally dispute the royalty rate as defined under the Royalty Agreement (see EMX news release dated December 17, 2021). Discussions with Zijin have since proved amicable and productive. Both companies are expecting to execute a modified royalty agreement in 2023.

Settlement of the Bullion Litigation
The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Bullion Monarch Mining, Inc. (“Bullion”), reached a settlement with Barrick Gold Corporation (“Barrick”) and Barrick affiliates and subsidiaries (“Barrick Entities”) with respect to Bullion’s claim of non-payment of royalties by the Barrick Entities to Bullion on production from properties in the Carlin Trend, Nevada. Bullion initiated litigation in 2008, before EMX acquired Bullion in 2012. Pursuant to the settlement, Barrick paid Bullion $25,000,000. Of the $25,000,000 settlement, $6,175,000 was paid as a fee to Bullion’s Reno, Nevada lawyers. The settlement of the lawsuit did not affect our 1% gross smelter return royalty from portions of Nevada Gold Mine’s Leeville, Carlin East, Four Corners, and other northern Carlin Trend underground gold mining operations (the “Leeville Royalty”), which continue to be paid.

Acquisition of Additional Royalty Interest on Caserones
EMX acquired an additional (effective) 0.3155% Net Smelter Return (“NSR”) royalty on the Caserones Copper-Molybdenum Mine located in northern Chile for $25,742,000. When combined with EMX’s (effective) 0.418% NSR interest acquired in August 2021 (see EMX news release dated August 17, 2021), EMX’s new total totals to an (effective) 0.7335% NSR royalty interest.

Subsequent to the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company entered into certain agreements to acquire an additional 2.263% ownership in the underlying royalty holder, Sociedad Legal Minera California Una de la Sierra Peña Negra (“SLM”), for cash consideration of $3,517,000 pursuant to agreements with existing shareholders of SLM. The acquisition provides EMX with a further 0.0424% (effective) NSR interest in the Caserones property, increasing the Company’s NSR royalty interest to 0.7759%.

Acquisition of Royalty Portfolio from Nevada Exploration
EMX executed a purchase and sale agreement (the “Agreement”) for a portfolio of royalties with Pediment Gold LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nevada Exploration Inc. (“NGE”), for $500,000 (see EMX news release dated September 2, 2022). The portfolio consists of a 2% NSR royalty on NGE’s Nevada gold exploration portfolio covering ~62.5 square miles and includes four district-scale land positions, as well as certain other interests. In addition, if NGE options, farms out, or sells a project, then beginning on the first anniversary of the third-party agreement, EMX will receive advanced annual royalties of $20,000 that escalate $10,000 per year and are capped at $50,000. NGE has the right to buy back half of EMX’s 2% NSR royalty by purchasing a 0.5% NSR interest for $1,000,000 any time prior to the 7th anniversary of the Agreement and then, if the first NSR interest has been purchased, may purchase the second 0.5% NSR interest any time prior to production for $1,500,000.

Appointment of Independent Director
EMX announced that Mr. Geoff Smith was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Company effective July 5, 2022. Mr. Smith brings to the board the benefit of 17 years of M&A and corporate finance experience having advised on or financed many of the largest, most complex and innovative streaming transactions in the past 10 years.

  • Initial production royalty payments were received from the Company’s Gediktepe oxide gold (silver) Royalty Property and Balya North polymetallic Royalty Property in Turkey (see respective EMX news releases dated September 9, and September 15, 2022). From Gediktepe EMX recognized $3,709,000 in royalty revenue and $4,000,000 in deferred milestone payments which will be paid in Q2 2023. EMX earned $276,000 from the Balya North Royalty Property in 2022.
  • EMX received a $3,000,000 milestone payment from Arizona Sonoran Copper Company, Inc. (“ASCU”) based upon declared resources totaling 200 million pounds or more of contained copper covered by the Company’s Parks-Salyer Royalty Property. ASCU’s maiden resource for its Parks-Salyer project, which is partially covered by EMX’s Royalty Property, was reported as total inferred underground resources of 143.6 million tons averaging 1.015% (total) copper and containing 2,915 million pounds of copper as oxide, enriched, and primary mineralization at variable cutoffs (see ASCU news release dated September 28, 2022). The Company retains a 1.5% NSR royalty covering the Parks-Salyer Royalty Property.
  • In the US, the Company added to its growing royalty portfolio with the completion of five new royalty agreements, the advancement of more than twenty-five partner-funded work programs, including nine drill projects, the acquisition of four large royalty positions from Nevada Exploration covering key land positions in Nevada, and new generative work leading to the acquisition of a district-wide land position at Tonopah, Nevada as well as a large (approximately 1,890 hectares), prospective land position in the Silver Valley district in Idaho. For the year, partners spent more than $18,000,000 on EMX’s early-stage US portfolio.
  • EMX’s Regional Strategic Alliance (“RSA”) with South32 Limited (“South32”) concluded in Q4 2022 after four years of generative exploration and project work. The Company is now following up on eleven priority projects identified by the RSA and retained by South32 for additional work, including an ongoing drill program at the Copper Springs porphyry copper project in Arizona’s Globe-Miami district.
  • In Canada, EMX programs advanced available properties in the portfolio as partners conducted multiple field programs, including drill programs on optioned and EMX royalty properties. EMX received C$577,000 in cash payments and C$52,000 in share equity payments during the year, while partners spent more than $3,700,000 in exploration expenditures advancing the portfolio.
  • EMX’s Latin American royalty portfolio advanced through field programs by Austral Gold Limited (at Morros Blancos and Morros Colorado), Pampa Metals Corporation (Block 4), and drill programs conducted by AbraSilver Resource Corp. (Diablillos), Aftermath Silver Ltd (Berenguela), and GR Silver Mining Ltd (San Marcial). In particular, the drill programs continued to produce significant results that expanded known resources and added new discoveries at nearby targets.
  • AbraSilver Resource Corp. (“AbraSilver”) announced an updated, open pit constrained mineral resource estimate for the Diablillos project’s Oculto deposit that included measured and indicated resources of 51.3 Mtonnes averaging 66 g/t silver (109 Moz contained Ag) and 0.79 g/t gold (1.3 Moz contained Au), as well as inferred resources of 2.2 Mtonnes averaging 30 g/t silver (2.1 Moz contained Ag) and 0.51 g/t gold (37 Koz contained Au) (see AbraSilver news release dated November 3, 2022). The updated resource was based upon drilling through Phase II. The ongoing Phase III drill program is designed to delineate a maiden resource estimate for the high-grade JAC zone discovery (see AbraSilver news release dated February 21, 2023).
  • In Northern Europe, the Company continued to develop its portfolio of projects, acquiring new gold and battery metals (nickel, copper and cobalt) royalty generation projects totaling nearly 175,000 hectares, and partnering four available properties. EMX also assisted with multiple partner-funded exploration and drilling programs. Overall, approximately $6,700,000 was spent by partners on EMX’s exploration royalty properties in Northern Europe during 2022.
  • Royalty generation programs proceeded in the Balkans and in Morocco, where multiple exploration license applications have been filed by the Company. New target areas are being assessed for further acquisitions.

Financing Updates

Sprott Credit Facility
The Company entered into a credit facility in 2021 with Sprott Private Resource Lending II (Collector), LP (“Sprott”) totaling $44,000,000 (the “Credit Facility”). On January 24, 2022, the Company signed a credit agreement modification extending the maturity date to December 31, 2024. In connection with the extension, an additional 1.50% of the principal ($660,000) was added to the principal balance as at January 24, 2022.

Private Placement with Franco-Nevada
The Company completed a $10,000,000 private placement with Franco-Nevada Corporation (“Franco-Nevada”). The proceeds were used to acquire the additional (effective) 0.3155% NSR royalty on the Caserones open pit mine in northern Chile (see EMX’s news release dated April 14, 2022).

Franco-Nevada purchased 3,812,121 units at C$3.30 per unit. Each unit consisted of one common share of EMX and one warrant to purchase one common share of EMX for C$4.45 exercisable until April 14, 2027. Franco-Nevada now owns approximately 3.5% of the issued and outstanding shares of EMX on an undiluted basis.

Repayment of Vendor Take Back Note
The Company repaid in full the vendor take back note issued to SSR Mining Inc. totaling $8,319,000 including interest owed.

Exercise of Stock Options granted by EMX
1,110,000 stock options were exercised pursuant to the Company’s Stock Option Plan, which generated proceeds of $1,037,000 to EMX.

Investment Updates
As at December 31, 2022, the Company had marketable securities of $9,970,000 (December 31, 2021 – $7,409,000), and $4,591,000 (December 31, 2021 – $8,761,000) in private investments. The Company will continue to generate cash flow by selling certain of its investments when appropriate. Much of the investment portfolio was derived from strategic investments, including Premium Nickel Resources Corporation (“PNR”), and royalty deals completed as part of our organic royalty generation business.

Strategic Investment in Premium Nickel Resources
From 2020 through 2022, EMX acquired 5,412,702 shares of PNR, a private company with nickel-copper-cobalt assets in Botswana. On April 26, 2022, PNR announced the execution of a definitive agreement for a reverse takeover transaction (“RTO”) with North American Nickel Inc. (“NAN”) to create a new reporting entity, Premium Nickel Resources Ltd (“PNRL”). PNRL began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange in Q3 of 2022, having completed the RTO process with NAN. As a result of the RTO transaction, EMX’s interests were converted to 5,704,987 shares of PNRL, which represents roughly 5% of the issued and outstanding shares of PNRL.


The 2023 year will continue to see revenue and other income coming from our cash flowing royalties, including Leeville in Nevada, Gediktepe in Turkey, potentially Timok in Serbia (pending conclusion of discussions with Zijin), and our effective royalty interest on Caserones in Chile. As in previous years, production royalties will continue to be complemented by option, advance royalty, and other pre-production payments from partnered projects across the global asset portfolio. As a royalty holder, the Company has limited, if any, access to information on properties for which it holds royalties. Additionally, the Company may receive information from the owners and operators of the properties, which the Company is not permitted to disclose to the public pursuant to the underlying agreement or the information is not NI 43-101 compliant. Accordingly, the Company has not, and does not anticipate that it will have the ability to, provide guidance or outlook as to future production.

The Company will continue to strengthen its balance sheet over the course of the year by looking to retire portions of our long-term debt, continuing to evaluate equity markets, and the ongoing monetization of the Company’s marketable securities.

EMX is well positioned to identify and pursue new royalty and investment opportunities, while further filling a pipeline of royalty generation properties that provide opportunities for additional cash flow, as well as exploration, development, and production success.

Diamcor Mining Junior Mining Precious Metals

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

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

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


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

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

About the Tiffany & Co. Alliance

The Company has established a long-term strategic alliance and first right of refusal with Tiffany & Co. Canada, a subsidiary of world famous New York based Tiffany & Co., to purchase up to 100% of the future production of rough diamonds from the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project at then current prices to be determined by the parties on an ongoing basis. In conjunction with this first right of refusal, Tiffany & Co. Canada also provided the Company with financing to advance the Project. Tiffany & Co. is now owned by Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE (LVMH), a publicly traded company which is listed on the Paris Stock Exchange (Euronext) under the symbol LVMH and on the OTC under the symbol LVMHF.

About Krone-Endora at Venetia

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

Goldshore Intersects 5.64 g/t Au over 15.65m at East Coldstream

Significant Mineralization Outlined 13km Northeast of the Moss Lake Deposit

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – February 27, 2023) – Goldshore Resources Inc. (TSXV: GSHR) (OTCQB: GSHRF) (FSE: 8X00) (“Goldshore” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing 100,000-meter drill program at the Moss Lake Project in Northwest Ontario, Canada (the “Moss Lake Gold Project“).


  • Results from the second half of the East Coldstream Phase One drill program have confirmed the potential for significant high-grade shears within East Coldstream, approximately 13 kilometers northeast of the Moss Lake Deposit. Best intercepts include:
    • 3.49 g/t Au over 26.35m from 76.85m depth in CED-22-010, including
      • 5.64 g/t over 15.65m from 87.55m
    • 1.12 g/t Au over 21.9m from 206.5m
    • 1.07 g/t Au over 31.0m from 288.0m depth in CED-22-011 and
    • 1.48 g/t Au over 18.45m from 357.0m, including
      • 4.68 g/t Au over 4.85m from 370.6m
    • 0.94 g/t Au over 25.05m from 218.95m depth in CED-22-014, including
      • 1.10 g/t Au over 16.0m from 226.0m
    • 1.23 g/t Au over 35.15m from 338.45m depth in CED-22-017, including
      • 2.19 g/t Au over 11.55m from 338.45m
  • In addition to the Moss Lake Depositthe upcoming mineral resource estimate update will include the East Coldstream deposit. In support of this, a 3D wireframe of the mineralization constraining alteration domain has been developed utilizing both current and historical drilling data.

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: “These results at East Coldstream continue to support our thesis that the size and scale of the entire Moss Lake Gold Project will be large enough to support a material and meaningful update to the mineral resource estimate in April 2023, with East Coldstream sequencing into the mine plan in a preliminary economic assessment as a satellite pit. We look forward to the continuing catalysts to the Moss Lake Gold Project in an effort to demonstrate the true value of the assets.”

Technical Overview

Figure 1 shows the location of East Coldstream relative to Moss Lake in addition to the now formally identified gold and copper prospects controlled by Goldshore Resources. Figure 2 shows the better intercepts in plan view, and Figure 3 is a typical section through holes CED-22-013 to -015 and -017. Table 1 shows the significant intercepts.

Results have been received for the eight remaining holes from the Phase One East Coldstream drill program completed in the Summer of 2022.

All holes intersected visually distinct silica, carbonate, and hematite alteration zones hosted in basalt flows – historically been referred to as the “Coldstream Basalt” – that host much of the gold mineralization (Figure 4). This alteration also overprints and locally mineralizes quartz feldspar porphyry sills and gabbro intrusions where they are intersected by shear zones. The altered intrusions are significantly less “visual” than the Coldstream Basalt, which resulted in inconsistent sampling of historical drill core. Infill sampling of intervals within the modelled alteration domain represents an opportunity to expand mineralization. This is planned for the summer.

Goldshore has wireframed shear zone-hosted alteration domains (Figure 5) ahead of a mineral resource update planned for the second quarter. This consists of two major altered shear zones – Main Lens and North Lens – and four minor altered shear zone splays. The Main Lens has been historically split into the Main Lens and Sanders Lens however these two lenses are now understood to be the same zone split by a late Proterozoic diabase dyke.

To evaluate the historical drilling, hole CED-22-010 was drilled as a twin of hole C-10-23 in the core of the East Coldstream deposit where both holes intersected two shear-controlled Lenses. In the North Lens, CED-22-010 and C-10-23 intersected 1.81 g/t Au over 54.6m from 76.85m versus 1.35 g/t Au over 54.2m from 80.4m, respectively. In the South Lens, CED-22-010 intersected 0.56 g/t Au over 51.5m from 206.5m versus 0.55 g/t Au over 34.7m from 196.6m, respectively. This represents a 34% higher grade over similar widths in the North Lens and a 48% increase in width with similar grades in the South Lens in the current drill hole.

The East Coldstream deposit also contains a broad, low-grade mineralized envelope within the alteration domain. Examples include 0.54 g/t Au over 27.5.0m from 562.5m in CED-22-009; 0.56 g/t Au over 51.5m from 206.5m depth in CED-22-010; 0.33 g/t Au over 32.0m from 315m in CED-22-012; 0.72 g/t Au over 18.1m from 182.05m in CED-22-013; 0.69 g/t Au over 25.05m from 254.95m in CED-22-014; and 0.85 g/t Au over 17.4m from 190.6m in CED-22-015.

Figure 4: Core box photos of CED-22-010 intercept in the North Lens – 3.49 g/t Au over 26.35m from 76.85m depth (yellow box) including 5.64 g/t over 15.65m from 87.55m.

Pete Flindell, VP Exploration for Goldshore, said “These drill results show that East Coldstream, which is well constrained by altered and mineralized shears, may be significantly larger than previously understood. Our focus will now be on developing a mineral resource based around the high-grade shears and their low-grade envelopes, which will form an important satellite to the Moss Lake Gold Project approximately 13 kilometers to the southwest.”

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.

Collective Mining Intersects 384.7 Metres at 2.46 g/t Gold Equivalent Including 109.8 Metres grading 4.14 g/t Gold Equivalent from Surface at the Apollo Porphyry System

  • Assay results for drill hole APC-31, which is the first hole to test the mineralized outcrop of the Apollo porphyry system (*formerly known as the Main Breccia discovery), has intersected significant continuous high-grade copper-silver-gold mineralization from surface as follows:
  • High-grade oxide mineralization was encountered over the initial 42.35 metres of the drill hole averaging 5.08 g/t gold equivalent.
  • Five additional drill holes have been completed in 2023 to date from drill Pads 6 and 7. All five holes appear to have cut significant mineralization beginning at bedrock with the three completed holes from Pad 6 intersecting more than 350 metres of continuous mineralization and the two outstanding holes from Pad 7 intersecting more than 100 metres and 170 metres of continuous mineralization, respectively. Assay results for these holes are expected in the near term.
  • Outcrop mapping and sampling in the south and central portions of the Apollo porphyry system has outlined a 130 metres X 130 metres area of known surface mineralization which is open in all directions. Two new pads (9 and 10) are under construction and once operational will provide more drilling options to test this expanding area of surface and shallow mineralization.

Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman commented: “2023 is off to an excellent start to say the least. Not only did drill hole APC-31 confirm for the first time that the high-grade copper-silver-gold mineralization in the Apollo porphyry system comes right to surface, but also that there is a significant zone of high-grade oxide mineralization. We have truly discovered a remarkable porphyry system at Apollo characterized by unusually high-grades of combined gold, silver and copper. We are equally fortunate that our Guayabales project is located in a mining camp contiguous to the multi-million-ounce Marmato mine and are confident that our Apollo porphyry system will play a key role in Colombia’s decarbonization strategy. Our plan in 2023 is to remain aggressive with both drilling and ESG so that our “Collective” model for mining yields dividends for stakeholders and shareholders alike.”

TORONTO, Feb. 23, 2023 /CNW/ – Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) (OTCQX: CNLMF) (“Collective” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from the first drill hole of 2023 as part of the Company’s phase II drill program at the Guayabales project located in Caldas, Colombia. The aim of the phase II program is to test and define through drilling the shallow portion of the Apollo porphyry system (*formerly known as the Main Breccia discovery) as well as continue expanding the system through step-out drilling. The Apollo porphyry deposit is a high-grade, bulk tonnage copper-silver-gold system, which owes its excellent metal endowment to an older porphyry copper-silver and gold mineralization being overprinted by younger precious metal rich, carbonate base metal vein systems (low and intermediate sulphidation) within a magmatic, hydrothermal intermineral breccia body currently measuring 395 metres x 385 metres x 915 metres and open for expansion.

Details (See Table 1 and Figures 1-3)

Assay results for the first drill hole (APC-31) from the 2023 phase II program is announced in this press release. The Phase II drilling program of 2023 is advancing on schedule with six holes completed and a further three in progress. The aim of this program is to define the high-grade mineralization and dimensions of the Apollo porphyry near surface while continuing to expand the size of the system through step-out drilling.

To date, a total of 32 drill holes (approximately 15,400 metres) have been completed and assayed at the Apollo target with the majority of the holes testing the Apollo porphyry system.

Assay results and geological observations of APC-31 are summarized below.

APC-31 was a shallow hole, drilled steeply to the northwest from Pad 6 to a maximum depth of 389.6 metres (370 metres vertical). The hole was designed to exclusively test the upper portion of the porphyry system from a location where the system outcrops at surface. The hole intersected continuous mineralization from surface down to its final depth where it was terminated while still in strong mineralization. APC-31 is the highest-grade accumulation of mineralization reported from drilling to date and averaged:

  • 384.7 metres @ 2.46 g/t gold equivalent (consisting of 1.17 g/t gold, 43 g/t silver and 0.37% copper) and including;

The mineralized interval starts from surface to 30 metres depth within saprolite material followed by an additional 17.5 metres of saprock with iron oxides and sulphides to 47.25 metres before transitioning into fresh rock consisting of chalcopyrite (0.5% to 1.5%), pyrite (1% to 2.5%) and some pyrrhotite (~1%). The mineralization is overprinted by carbonate-base metal veins containing sphalerite and galena and high grades of gold. Gold grades are significantly higher in the oxidized portion of the intercept down to 47.25 metres, while copper and silver grades are reduced within the same interval presumably due to weathering.

Outcrop mapping and sampling in the south and central portions of the system has outlined a 130 metre-by-130 metre area of known surface mineralization, which is open in all directions. 2023 drill Pads 6 and 7 have been designed to achieve the objective of understanding the styles and tenor of the shallow, high-grade mineralization from surface down to depths of up to 400 metres. Visual observations from five completed holes that are awaiting assay results in the near term indicate continuous intercepts from surface over core lengths ranging from more than 100 metres to more than 350 metres. The Company presently has three diamond drill rigs operating at the project.

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

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

Franco-Nevada Update on the Suspension of Ore Processing at Cobre Panama

TORONTO, Feb. 23, 2023 /CNW/ – Franco-Nevada Corporation (“Franco-Nevada” or the “Company“) (TSX: FNV) (NYSE: FNV) has been advised by its partner First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (“First Quantum“) that First Quantum’s subsidiary, Minera Panama, S.A. (“MPSA“), has suspended ore processing operations at the Cobre Panama mine.  As previously announced, the Panama Maritime Authority (“AMP“) issued a resolution on January 26, 2023 requiring the suspension of concentrate loading operations at the Cobre Panama Port, Punta Rincón, until certification of the calibration of the scales by an accredited company had been initiated.  Key updates as reported by First Quantum include:

  • MPSA believes it has complied with all requirements of the AMP resolution but copper concentrate loading operations are still not being permitted by the AMP
  • MPSA will begin a partial demobilization of its workforce and will take a systematic approach to reducing operations to ensure the safety of its workforce, prevent damage and degradation of equipment and preserve the integrity of the mine
  • If the AMP is to permit the recommencement of concentrate loading operations, MPSA could begin shipping concentrate and resuming operations at the mine within hours
  • Negotiations with the Government of Panama on a refreshed contract are continuing and First Quantum remains committed to achieving an outcome that will be to the benefit of all stakeholders and support the long-term operations of the Cobre Panama mine.

Please refer to First Quantum’s press release dated February 23, 2023 for further details.

Impact on Franco-Nevada

Franco-Nevada (Barbados) Corporation, a subsidiary of Franco-Nevada, holds two precious metal streams indexed to the copper-in-concentrate shipped by Cobre Panama.  First Quantum’s 2023 guidance for uninterrupted production from Cobre Panama provided on January 16, 2023 was for 350kt to 380kt of copper production. This would translate into 131koz to 142koz of attributable GEO production to Franco-Nevada (calculating gold equivalence using $1,800/oz Au and $21.00/oz Ag prices).

Provided operations resume at Cobre Panama, the impact to Franco-Nevada of the suspension of operations should be limited to a deferral of revenue as the streams do not bear any associated carrying costs while operations are suspended.

Despite operations at the mine being suspended, Franco-Nevada remains highly profitable, continues to generate substantial cash flow, is debt-free, and has cash and working capital in excess of US$1 billion, an undrawn US$1 billion credit facility and limited financial commitments.  Franco-Nevada remains in communication with First Quantum and will provide further updates as they are available.

Silver Bullet Mines Corp. Assays 270.6 Ounces per Ton Silver in Upper Vein at Buckeye Mine in Arizona

Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – February 15, 2023) – Silver Bullet Mines Corp. (TSXV: SBMI) (OTCQB: SBMCF) (‘SBMI’ or ‘the Company’) announces strong initial assay results from the interception of the upper main vein at the Buckeye Mine near Globe, Arizona.

The vein was intercepted approximately 380 feet from the entrance to the adit. Immediately on contact with the vein, the first significant assays from the vein were 43, 178.6, and 270.6 ounces silver per ton. The samples yielding these results did not include material from the footwall. The samples were selected at random from the mineralized material removed from the vein and then were sent to SBMI’s assay lab for processing.

The Company is now mining along the exposed vein with assay results pending from the face. SBMI has extended the workings to 420 feet from the entrance to the adit, the vein is ten feet wide and eleven feet high, and the footwall is estimated by the field team to be four feet wide.

SBMI has stockpiled in excess of 450 tons of vein material at surface at the Buckeye Mine site, for shipment to the mill. The Company is mining 150 to 200 tons of mineralized material per day, although this rate will vary. The Company believes it has achieved the targetted grade necessary to support processing this material at the Company’s mill and to then pour dore bars or create concentrate. Both the dore bars and the concentrate will saleable product, and the Company does not expect to encounter any significant difficulties in finding buyers for those products.

SBMI is also pleased to announce it has begun to resolve the issues with pouring dore bars from this material. The picture below shows a malformed dore bar from September, 2022.

Malformed dore bar from Sept, 2022

The Company thanks Dr. Andrew Macdonald, a mineralogist with Harquail School of Earth Sciences at Laurentian University, for his assistance. Initial results from his work indicate the presence of a highly magnetic iron alloy in the mineralized material. The iron alloy smelts at temperatures of over 3000 degrees F, which is above the silver smelting temperature of roughly 1800 degrees F, and therefore it interferes with the silver smelting process. SBMI has confirmed this thesis by using a high intensity magnet to pull the iron alloy from the concentrate prior to smelting. The dore bar below, poured in February, 2023, resulted from concentrate after the iron alloy was removed.

As a result, the Company intends to permanently install a high intensity magnetic separator in the milling operation to improve the likelihood the Company can smelt silver dore bars. The Company intends to store the magnetic concentrates for future research. Continued research will be needed.

The Company is still awaiting the check assay results from American Assay Labs and Actlabs.

SBMI’s near term goal is to process the higher grade material at the Company’s mill to produce saleable product.


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

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

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

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

Stillwater Critical Minerals Partners with Cornell University on Hydrometallurgy and Carbon Sequestration Initiatives for its Stillwater West Ni-PGE-Cu-Co + Au Project in Montana, USA

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 14, 2023 / Stillwater Critical Minerals (TSX.V:PGE)(OTCQB:PGEZF)(FSE:5D32) (the “Company” or “SWCM”) is pleased to announce it has partnered with Cornell University under the MINER program, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE”) via the Advanced Research Projects Agency program (“ARPA-E”). Test work, led by Dr. Greeshma Gadikota, will focus on novel hydrometallurgical techniques and carbon capture, with the objective of increasing the extraction of critical minerals using reduced energy for a carbon negative mining future.

Cornell University is the recipient of a federal grant from ARPA-E as part of a program entitled “Supercritical CO2-Based Mining for Carbon-Negative Critical Mineral Recovery”. Cornell University seeks to advance CO2-sourced hydrometallurgical pathways for recovering energy critical metals, including nickel, cobalt, platinum and palladium, coupled to the carbon mineralization of calcium and magnesium components to produce calcium and magnesium carbonates. Novel functional materials for the selective capture and recovery of these energy critical metals will be developed. Various sources for CO2 will be investigated including air for metal recovery coupled to carbon mineralization. These approaches will be specifically tuned to the mineralogy of the Company’s Stillwater West project in Montana.

Dr. Greeshma Gadikota

Dr. Greeshma Gadikota stated, “The U.S. imports the great majority of its energy critical metals from mines all over the world, leaving the U.S. quite vulnerable. Our research is all about decarbonizing the mining industry and developing an independent, domestic supply chain of these critical metals. It’s important for U.S. manufacturing, green energy, national security, and competitiveness.”

Relating to the Cornell University partnership, Company President and CEO, Michael Rowley, will join Dr. Gadikota at the ARPA-E MINER kick-off event in Austin, Texas on February 14 and 15, 2023. Other presenters and attendees include Tesla Motors, major mining companies, top US government officials and financial institutions. More information on the MINER program is available here:

Michael Rowley, Stillwater Critical Minerals President & CEO, stated, “We are very pleased to be selected as the industry partner for Dr. Gadikota’s cutting-edge work and to work closely with her team toward our shared vision of securing the future domestic supply of the critical minerals the US so urgently needs. Our Stillwater West project is rapidly advancing as a potential large-scale, low-carbon source of nickel, copper, cobalt, palladium, platinum and rhodium. Located in an active and expanding US mining district with a long history of critical minerals production and demonstrated world-class scale and grade, Stillwater West is on a very short list of assets with the potential to play a significant role in realizing the goals set out in the bipartisan Inflation Reduction Act, and other ongoing initiatives. It is our belief that mining can do more than supply minerals by conventional means, and that partnerships such as this are the path toward more sustainable practices.”

Research Interests

With more than 80% of our energy resources recovered from the subsurface environments which requires about 50 billion cubic meters of fresh water and contributes to more than 75% of global CO2 emissions, our grand societal challenge lies in meeting our growing demand for energy and resources while reducing environmental impact. Addressing these earth-scale challenges requires us to develop novel technologies to engineer targeted physico-chemical interactions in complex engineered and natural environments. Enabling emergent technologies for a sustainable earth requires us to advance the cross-scale science of fluid-solid interactions in complex and extreme environments. With this perspective, our research is directed towards applications that involve (i) engineering the natural environment for sustainable energy and resource recovery and (ii) designing novel chemical pathways for advancing low carbon and negative emissions technologies.
