 See More Live DataRover Metals Corp., (ROVR:TSX.V; ROVMF:OTCQB; 4X0:FRA) said it is helping to assert Canada’s Arctic borders and safeguard the nation’s northern sovereignty above the 60th parallel.

Within the Arctic region’s 21 million square kilometers, eight countries — Canada, Russia, the United States, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Iceland — have exclusive economic rights to resources up to 200 nautical miles from their shores.

But as rising ocean temperatures disrupt shorelines and shipping routes, heavy hitters like China are eying assets and deep seaports along Canada’s Northwest Arctic Passage.

Potential at the 60th Parallel

Global gold production is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of more than 3% through 2026, with Canada being the largest contributor to the increase. Over the forecast period 2022-2026, Canadian gold mine production is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.7% to reach 15.5 Moz.

Global Data

But action is needed to capitalize on these trends. “If there are no new mines coming online in the Northwest Territories, the population, taxes, and government needed to assert Canada’s northern border dwindles creating a potential power vacuum in the arctic,” said Rover Metals Chief Executive Officer and Director Judson Culter.

With its strategic proximity to the key city of Yellowknife, Rover’s 100%-owned Cabin Gold asset and minority owned Up Town Gold asset could be the catalysts that build a critical mass of population, infrastructure, employment, and income, he said.

Cabin Gold Project

Cabin Gold is located 110 km northwest of the city of Yellowknife, close to hydro lines and to the Tlicho All Season Road (TASR), the newest corridor of mining infrastructure in the Northwest Territories. Two new gold mines along the TASR are scheduled to see advanced-stage mine development over the next five years: Fortune Minerals Ltd.’s (FT:TSX) NICO Project and Nighthawk Gold Corp.’s (NHK:TSX.V) Indin Lake project.

Supported by a grant from the government of the Northwest Territories’ Mining Incentive Program, under a mandate to ensure that mineral resource exploration and development continues to flourish in the north, Rover commenced Phase 3 exploration in Cabin Gold in March 2022.

“The project will be a success even if we prove up only 500,000 ounces of gold because we can do a milling offtake agreement with either Nighthawk or Fortune,” Culter said.

New drilling results are expected sometime this summer, but for now, Culter considers Sabina Gold & Silver Corp.’s (SBB:TSX; RXC:FSE; SGSVF:OTCPK) Back River project to be “the closest geological analog in terms of how we’re going to follow on our discoveries. Plus, we’re in the same neighborhood and with relatively the same type of rocks.”

Up Town Gold Project

Located on the outskirts of the city limits of the city of Yellowknife, this Archean lode-gold prospect adjoins the historic 7.2 Moz Giant Mine gold deposit and Gold Terra Resource Corp.’s (YGT:TSX.V; YGTFF:OTC; TXO:FRANKFURT) 2.2 Moz Yellowknife City Gold Project.

“We believe the Up Town Gold project has the potential for a million-plus ounces,” Culter said.

If exploration continues to be successful in proving up ounces of gold, Up Town has a high chance of resale within the next two years. Newmont Corp. (NEM:NYSE) is active in the Yellowknife area, having optioned their gold claims at the southern city limits to Gold Terra in 2021.

In addition, Culter said, “A new producing gold mine pushes the demand for new exploration and discoveries in the northern territories, paving the way for shipping and airborne logistics, new jobs, and the potential for new highways and hydro infrastructure. For every new head hired into a junior mining company, there’s a multiplier of two and a half new jobs hired into the supply chain that supports that company.”

‘We’re Pretty, Pretty Confident’

With assets in all the right places, Rover Metals is relatively under-appreciated and undervalued, Culter said.

“We’re at the very bottom of the Pierre Lassonde discovery curve, with only one direction but moving up ,” he said. “We need another $4 million or $5 million in drilling, but over the next two years, there’s critical ounces and value in our Cabin Gold project.”

The company has just raised $2 million dollars at a time when other junior miners have struggled to raise anything.

“Here’s a company with high-grade gold resources in the right neighborhood. We’re fully financed, with drill results coming, so we’re pretty, pretty confident,” Culter said. “I think investors should be taking note.”

Newsletter writer Clive Maund agreed, writing when the share price was $0.04 that Rover Metals was an immediate speculative buy. The price hovered at $0.04 on Monday.

“This, therefore, looks like a good low price to pick it up and this is said in the knowledge that it could temporarily break even lower,” he wrote. “As it is only at 4 cents now, it can’t drop much lower.”

Rover Metals has a market cap of $5.51 million and 157.44 million shares outstanding. It trades in a range of $0.12 and $0.03 over 52 weeks.

Rover Metals Announces Start of Phase 3 Drilling at Its Cabin Gold Project, NT, Canada

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rover Metals Corp. (TSXV: ROVR) (OTCQB: ROVMF) (FSE:4XO) (“Rover” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Phase 3 Exploration Drilling has commenced at its 100% owned Cabin Gold Project, NT, Canada. The goal of the Phase 3 program is to drill the highest-grade proven zones on the project, both at depth, and along surface strike. The Company will be targeting the Arrow Zone and the Beaver Zone during this program, which were the focus of the Company’s Phase 1 and Phase 2 Exploration Programs.

Arrow Zone Phase 3
On November 24, 2020, the Company reported on the confirmation and expansion of the historical results reported on by Aber Resources in the 1980s at the Arrow Zone. Drilling at Arrow (formerly the “Cabin Lake Zone”) in 2020 led to the discovery of a continuous high-grade gold ore shoot that extends 120m at surface, and dips northwest below Cabin Lake. Highlights of the 2020 results include DDH CL-20-08 which intersected 32m of 13.6 g/t Au. Hole CL-20-08 was drilled from the shoreline of Cabin Lake, out underneath the lake (with mineralization starting 12m from surface). The Company’s Phase 3 drill targets are out over the frozen ice of Cabin Lake and are designed to follow the Arrow ore shoot down dip and prove continuity at depths below 60m. The Company is planning a minimum of seven drill holes, averaging approximately 150m per hole at Arrow.

Beaver Zone Phase 3
On December 7, 2021, the Company reported on the infill and delineation of the historic Beaver Zone. Rover’s Dec-2021 drill results more than doubled the historic gold grades reported at Beaver. Highlights of the 2021 results include 6.4m of 4.63 g/t Au, including 2.6m of 7.80 g/t Au in the most southeastern part of the zone. On January 25, 2022, the Company also reported on a large IP anomaly discovery extending 200m southeast of the most southeastern drill hole (DDH CL-21-39) at the Beaver Zone. The IP anomaly has never been drilled and extends southeast parallel to the Arrow Zone. The Company is planning several near surface drill holes to test this anomaly, in the hopes that it will be able to extend the surface strike length at Beaver.
