Golden Arrow Resources Reports 5m @ 2.98g/t Au And 1m @ 5.52g/t Au From Trenching At Flecha De Oro Project In Argentina

After almost two months of exploration at the Esperanza property at the Flecha de Oro project in Argentina, results are starting to come in for Golden Arrow Resources (GRG.V, GARWF.US, G6A.FSE). The ongoing trenching program is currently in Phase I, and focused on a nine square kilometre area where numerous gold-bearing quartz veins have been identified at surface. There were several interesting and economic intercepts reported, which incentivizes management to continue searching for the heart of the mineralized system.

First Assay Results On Cabaçal VMS Copper-Gold Project Return 15.9m @ 4.0% CuEq And 48.6m @ 1.4% CuEq For Meridian Mining

As copper is closing on to all-time highs, trading at US$4.42/lb Cu at the time of writing (peaking in 2011 at US$4.6285/lb Cu), Meridian Mining (TSXV: MNO) came out with their first set of assays from their 100% optioned Cabaçal VMS Copper-Gold Project in Brazil, from their ongoing field program, encompassing 10,000m of diamond drilling. The mix of verification and infill holes, aimed at targets in the Southern- and Eastern Copper Zone (SCZ/ECZ), returned good results, with highlights of 15.9m @ 4.0% CuEq and 48.6m @ 1.4% CuEq for CD-004 and CD-003 respectively. This is the first stage of confirmation of the historical BP Minerals / Rio Tinto drill results.

Blue Sky Uranium Advancing Ivana Deposit Towards PFS; Commencing Metallurgical Testwork, Drill Results Expected Soon

Ivana deposit; Rio Negro province, Argentina

As uranium sentiment for stocks remains strong, Blue Sky Uranium (TSXV: BSK; US-OTC: BKUCF) is looking to seize the moment, and continues to advance their flagship Amarillo Grande uranium project in Argentina. This strong sentiment puzzles fund managers specialized in uranium stocks, as usually the uranium spot- and contract prices appreciate first, and stocks follow. Despite all mine closures, cut-backs in production and the US reserve bill, uranium prices hardly moved, as is shown on this chart from the Cameco (CCO.TO) website:

Golden Independence Mining Closes Oversubscribed, Non-Brokered C$2.8M Private Placement; Drilling At Independence Returns More Good Results

Although gold has to battle higher interest rates, a stronger dollar and Bitcoin beating all time highs as I am writing this, Golden Independence Mining (CSE: IGLD, OTCQB:GIDMF, FRA:6NN) doesn’t appear to get fazed, and apparently has no trouble raising cash. On April 9, 2021 it closed a private placement of C$2.8M, enabling it to do much more drilling this year, and potentially grow the resource even more on their Independence gold project in Nevada. The company was already financed to do a maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate which will be coming out in weeks, and a PEA before year end.

In the meantime, drilling is advancing in good fashion, almost every hole returning economic intercepts, verifying and expanding the historic 1.07Moz gold resource which has the usual hallmarks of a typical Nevada deposit: near surface, heap leachable oxides and deeper, higher grade sulfides. Let’s have a look at their progress so far.

Gold Terra Hits 12.35m @ 5.77g/t And 4.35m @ 10.85g/t Gold On Campbell Shear Target At Yellowknife City Gold Project

The much anticipated Phase 1 drilling program, testing the southern extension of the Campbell Shear of the Yellowknife City Gold Project (1.2Moz Au Inferred resource), is well underway now, and the results are pleasing management of Gold Terra(TSXV:YGT)(OTCQX:YGTFF)(FRA:TXO) as it confirms historical drilling results. As a quick reminder, the Campbell Shear produced approximately 5 of the 6 million ounces of gold produced at the former Con Mine (1938-2002), is the main reason Executive Gerald Panneton (of Detour Gold fame) joined the company, and is the priority target for management. To date, Gold Terra has completed 13 holes for a total of approximately 5,700 metres along the Campbell Shear to vertical depth of 400 metres below surface.

Meridian Mining Drills Strong Sulphide Mineralization At Its Cabaçal VMS Copper-Gold Project

The latest Meridian news release shows an impressive hint of the mineralized potential of the Cabaçal VMS Copper-Gold Project in Brazil, at which Meridian Mining (TSXV: MNO) last year signed an option agreement for a 100% ownership.

Meridian announced the roll-out of its field program following the granting of a environmental permit for drilling in March, and mobilized two drill rigs and a geophysical team to commence a 10,000m diamond drilling program. One of the initial focus areas was in the southern sector of the deposit defined as the Southern Copper Zone (SCZ), where historical drilling suggests the presence of high grade NW-SE trending alteration pipe hosting copper-gold-silver mineralization.

Golden Arrow Resources Options Out Caballos Copper-Gold Project, Focuses More On Rosales Copper Project In Chile

As copper is riding at 9 year highs lately, Golden Arrow Resources (GRG.V, GARWF.US, G6A.FSE) acknowledged this fact and recently made an adjustment to their exploration strategy, which previously focused predominantly on their gold projects Tierra Dorada in Paraguay and Flecha de Oro in Argentina, and to a lesser extent on their Rosales Copper project in Chile. This switch makes sense, as copper is even closing in on all-time highs now (US$4.63/lb Cu), as can be seen on this chart by Macrotrends:

Golden Arrow Resources Out Exploring Again After COVID-19; Hits High Grade Gold At Tierra Dorada In Paraguay

 

As Golden Arrow Resources (GRG.V, GARWF.US, G6A.FSE) was sidelined for most of last year due to COVID-19, their exploration programs were basically halted. The project that first got underway again was the Tierra Dorada Gold project in Paraguay. The story on this project is a testament to the strong network of Golden Arrow in Latin America. When CEO Joe Grosso talked to officials in Paraguay somewhere in 2019, they told him to take a look at some of their projects, and talk to local geologists. So he did, and these geologists identified numerous projects, ready for staking. In the end, 2 claim blocks totaling 64k hectares were staked.

Alianza Minerals Completes Haldane Drilling, Results Expected In January

During a year full of COVID-19 surprises and -distractions, Alianza Minerals (ANZ.V) was able to continue with their drill programs, funded by either partners like Hochschild or themselves. As the results at the Horsethief project disappointed (best result was 76m @ 0.185g/t Au), Hochschild elected to terminate the option agreement, so the project was returned to Alianza again. They didn’t chose to evaluate remaining targets, and this is something management aims to do anyway, in the first quarter of next year.   

Golden Arrow Resources Acquires Rosales Copper Project In Chile, Drops Indiana Project

As Golden Arrow Resources (GRG.V, GARWF.US, G6A.FSE) renegotiated their Indiana gold project in Chile not too long ago into very favorable terms, I was surprised to recently read about the company dropping the project:

“The Company also wishes to report that it is not proceeding with its option of the Indiana Gold-Copper project in Chile.”

when announcing in the same news release the acquisition of the Rosales Copper project, located in Chile as well, which is less advanced, and will be discussed later on.
