Golden Arrow Resources Commenced Drilling At Terra Dorada Gold Project, Paraguay And Rosales Copper Project, Chile, Options Libanesa Silver-Gold Project, Argentina

Sampling Rosales Copper project, Chile

After lots of reconnaissance exploration at several of their projects, Golden Arrow Resources (GRG.V, GARWF.US, G6A.FSE) is ready for the follow-up, and recently commenced drilling at two different projects. These are the Rosales Copper project in Chile, and the Terra Dorada gold project in Paraguay. The company also completed an IP and magnetics surveys, and a mapping/rock sampling program at their Yanso gold project in Argentina. Furthermore, it finished a trenching program at the Esperanza target, part of the Flecha de Oro gold project in Argentina. Lastly Golden Arrow Resources very recently signed an option agreement for the Libanesa silver-gold project, also in Argentina, the longtime base for the company, and plans to do reconnaissance exploration on this project soon. These activities and more will be discussed with VP Exploration Brian McEwen in this article.

Alianza Minerals Intercepts More Silver At Haldane

Mount Haldane, Yukon

Alianza Minerals (ANZ.V, TARSF.US) recently completed the 2021 drilling campaign at their flagship Haldane silver project in the historic Keno Hill Mining District. After the impressive 1.78m @ 818g/t silver and 1.26m @3,267g/t silver intercepts, the company finally seems to be on track for economic silver mineralization, and created some expectations along the road as well. The drillers managed to hit more silver at each hole they drilled since, although the results weren’t as stellar yet, but still decent.

On September 23, the last two holes were reported from the 2021 drill program at Haldane, focusing on the West Fault target, HLD21-26 and HLD21-27. These holes were 50m stepouts along the Ewing North Fault, and can be seen here:

Alianza Minerals Impresses With 1.26m @ 3,267g/t Silver Intercept At Haldane

Mount Haldane, Yukon

It has taken Alianza Minerals (ANZ.V, TARSF.US) a while, but it finally seems to have hit ultra high grade silver at their Haldane project in the Keno Hill District (Yukon), and this is exactly what management was looking for all along. A very high grade intercept drilled in January at the same target already generated 1.78m @ 818g/t silver, but this time around the company announced a spectacular 1.26m @3,267g/t silver intersection, and this is even without the zinc and lead credits. According to management, many more upcoming drill results will create lots of news flow the coming months, so it could be a prolific summer for Alianza Minerals.

Alianza Minerals Enjoys Fully Subscribed Non-Brokered C$1.2M Private Placement

Mount Haldane, Yukon

As precious metal prices, alongside almost all other metals, are performing well, Alianza Minerals (ANZ.V, TARSF.US) management received lots of interest, and was able to reel in subscriptions for their non-brokered C$1.2M private placement, announced at May 31, 2021. The placement consisted of C$0.12 flow through shares, with no warrants attached to it, which is a sign of strength and rare. Red Cloud Securities acts as a finder, and will be, together with other finders, eligible for a finders fee of 7% in cash and 7% in finders fee warrants. These warrants are exercisable into shares at C$0.12 for a period of 2 years. The proceeds of this round will be used for exploration on the flagship Haldane Silver project in Keno Hill, located in the Yukon.

After drilling their flagship Haldane project in the Yukon 1.5 years ago, and coming up with decent but not spectacular results (October 2019: 2.35m @ 125 g/t Ag, 4.4% Pb from 154m depth, November 2019: 10.7m @ 125.6 g/t Ag including 1m @ 455 g/t Ag, and 1m @ 180 g/t Ag), Alianza Minerals (ANZ.V, TARSF.US) management was still eager to keep looking for the kind of silver mineralization that was responsible for over 214Moz Ag of historic production at the Keno Hill mining camp up to 1990, which was nothing short of spectacular at grades up to 89.2 oz(not gram!)/t for the larger mines:

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.

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.

As I discussed recently in other articles, 2020 is shaping up to be a remarkable year, with COVID-19 disrupting the markets and real economy, prompting central banks around the world with huge stimulus packages to perform damage control. The negative real interest rates combined with a devaluating US Dollar appeared to be the perfect storm for precious metals, including silver, the metal of focus for Alianza Minerals (ANZ.V). This Kitco chart shows the explosive extent of this year’s runup of the grey metal, after years of flatlining:

The Critical Investor, an avid and critical mining stock investor and newsletter writer from Europe, looks for high quality companies, strong short-term catalysts and deep value. In this interview with Streetwise Reports, he takes a deep dive into the drivers behind gold's appreciation, discusses several criteria he uses to evaluate mining juniors and developers, and profiles, using his numbers-based approach, 13 junior mining companies, of which most are featuring in his portfolio.

Streetwise Reports (SWR): Gold and silver have been trading more or less sideways for the last month or so. What do you see ahead for the precious metals?

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.
