Hawkmoon Resources Raises C$797k, Exploration Commenced At Wilson And Romeo Projects, Quebec

 

Setting up drill rig at Wilson, Quebec

1. Introduction

Quebec is one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world, containing several of the largest gold trends worldwide, among those the giant Abitibi Greenstone Belt (180Moz gold production so far). When tiny junior Hawkmoon Resources (CSE: HM, FRA:966) announced their IPO, and strategy to do exploration projects in exactly this region, I was curious to see what kind of projects they had in mind. I met CEO Branden Haynes much earlier, back in 2019, and it was already obvious he was extremely passionate about his dream to have his own exploration venture, which is something I like to see, and which we could easily discuss for hours, besides one of his other passions, which is European football, more specifically FC Barcelona and Dutch football (I am a Dutchman myself).

Kenorland Minerals Completes First Drill Program At Regnault, Exploration At Tanacross, Chebistuan And Healy Underway, Sells Fox Property

Drilling at Regnault target, Frotet project, Quebec

After the nice batch of results released at the end of May, beautifully complementing the first sets of strong intercepts, Kenorland Minerals (KLD.V)(3WQO.FSE) was hoping to find more of the same when targeting the more southern parts of the discovered Regnault structure, potentially growing this into a district scale discovery. The final drill results from the 8,591m diamond drill program, being the remaining 15 holes (5,104m) were not of this high standard unfortunately, but for a greenfield exploration venture this project has already been a resounding success, with most holes hitting mineralization. The share price reacted substantially to the May results, which included the impressive 5.72m @ 90.56 g/t Au (incl. 3.89m at 132.57 g/t Au) intercept, as can be seen here:

Maxtech Ventures: Primed To Prove Up A Potential 1Moz Maiden Gold Resource In Ontario

 

1. Introduction

With gold stabilizing and further inflation expected with a world economy continuing to recover from COVID-19, it seems Maxtech Ventures (CSE.MVT)(OTC:MTEHF)(FRA.M1N), a junior exploration company operating in Ontario and Quebec, is in the right place at the right time. It raised C$0.94M on June 4, 2021, and recently commenced a 15,000m 3 staged drill program at their flagship St.Anthony Gold project, with the objective to prove up a historic 1.2Moz resource, and maybe even more. Management already succeeded in attracting a few large institutional names like US Global, and is followed with interest by more large parties, ready to enter when drilling delivers the right results.

Kenorland Minerals Hits 5.72m @ 90.56g/t Au At Regnault Gold Project

Drilling at Frotet project, Quebec

It took some time, but it all seems to come together rather nicely now for hybrid prospect generator Kenorland Minerals (KLD.V) and its young prodigy CEO, Zach Flood. A few days ago the gold price broke through the important barrier of US$1900/oz again, lots of metals are witnessing positive sentiment on the back of a recovering world economy as COVID-19 vaccines are rolled out worldwide, so despite a recent crypto crash the mining industry is enjoying a bull market again after 2016-2017.

Drilling By Meridian Mining At Cabaçal Returns 66.1m @ 1.1% CuEq In Extensions To Underground Workings

With copper beating all time highs recently, and gold briefly touching US$1900/oz, Meridian Mining (TSXV: MNO) seems to be in a good place, delivering their second set of assays from their Cabaçal VMS Copper-Gold Project in Brazil. Their ongoing 10,000m field program of diamond drilling recently returned assays from hole CD-005 to CD-009, and all holes contained economic mineralization. This will probably not come as a surprise for the verification holes of historic drill results, but the good news is the stepout holes into the lesser drilled areas outside the limits of mine development sometimes returned even better results. The standout hole in this case is of course CD-009, producing no less than 66.1m @ 1.1% CuEq from 86.9m depth.

Golden Independence Mining Announces 1.5Moz Au Maiden Resource Estimate On Nevada Project

You have to hand it to them, the timing of Golden Independence Mining (CSE: IGLD, OTCQB:GIDMF, FRA:6NN) announcing their maiden resource estimate (MRE) on their Independence project in Nevada is pretty good, as precious metals sentiment becomes increasingly more positive, and other assets like bitcoin just seemed to have bowed out as a serious alternative, after getting into a tailspin of epic proportions, losing over 25% of value in one day. So far Frank Giustra seems to have won the gold vs. bitcoin debate with Michael Saylor for now.  

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.

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.
