  • Strike length of the gold mineralization greater than 2000 meters at depth
  • Program designed to test the continuity of the near surface gold mineralization as it relates to a potential open pit
  • As well to test the interpretation that Shear Zone #5 extends from the west deep high grade zone to the lower grade near surface gold bearing zone

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC–(Aug. 18, 2017) – Explor Resources Inc. (“Explor” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE:EXS)(OTCQB:EXSFF)(FRANKFURT:E1H1)(BERLIN:E1H1) is pleased to announce the results of 8 drill holes being the next series of holes on the diamond drilling program. This program consisted of the extension of 5 previously drilled holes and the completion of 3 new Diamond Drill Holes. Holes #TPW-17-101EX, #TPW-17-102EX, #17-103EX, #TPW-17-104EX and #TPW-17-109 were extended to test the theory that Shear Zone #5 extended across the property. New Holes #TPW-17-124, #TPW-17-125 and #TPW-17-127 were drilled and are reported in this press release.

The attached DDH and Open Pit Plan view show the location of the three potential Open Pit areas that are located over an 1800 meter strike length and 250 meters of depth. The recently completed Diamond Drilling Program was concentrated in the eastern end in proximity to and in Area “B” in order to increase the near surface resource and connect the eastern portion of the potential open pit areas.

Chris Dupont, President and Chief Executive Officer of Explor Resources Inc. commented: “We continue to be extremely pleased and encouraged by these excellent drill results. The fact that Explor continued to intersect near surface gold mineralization in area “B” continue to confirm existence of a near surface open pit gold resource that extends over a strike length of 1800 meters.”

It is important to note that the strike length of the gold mineralization is greater than 2000 meters at depth. The continuity of mineralization continues to be confirmed, and the structure remains open on strike and at depth. Explor has intersected gold mineralization in 121 out of 126 holes drilled to date and 64 out of 65 wedges. The Diamond drill Program recently completed was designed to test the continuity of the near surface gold mineralization as it relates to a potential open pit and to test the interpretation that Shear Zone #5 extends from the west deep high grade zone to the lower grade near surface gold bearing zone.

A total of 3163.4 meters were drilled to expand and update the open pit potential of the TPW property of Explor Resources by intersecting North-east-South-west trending Shear Zone #5 that was originally discovered in Hole #TPW-13-101 completed in the 2013 drill program.

The drill program was successful in intersecting Shear Zone #5 in four (4) holes with 14 gold values as well as intersecting an additional 14 gold values from 3 holes drilled in previously untested areas of the mineralized strike length. The addition of 28 gold values ranging from 1.06 to 7.3 g/t Au over 1.5 meters within the proposed open pit area clearly shows the extent and potential of this zone.

In summary, holes #TPW-17-101EX, #TPW-17-102-EX, #TPW-17-103EX and #TPW-17-104EX intercepted Shear Zone #5 with 14 gold values ranging from 1.06 to 7.3 g/t gold over 1.5 meters. As well, new fill in holes #TPW-17-124, #TPW-17-125 and #TPW-17-127 in Area “B” intersected 14 gold values from 1.1 to 5.1 g/t Au over 1.5 meters, mostly from east-west trending Shear Zones #1 to #4.

More importantly, Holes TPW-17-101EX, TPW-17-102EX and TPW-17-104EX intercepted gold values from a previously undetected east-west trending shear which has now been interpreted as Shear Zone # 6.

The spring 2017 drill program to increase the potential of the proposed open pit on the TPW property of Explor Resources was successful as it:

  1. Confirmed our interpretation of the location of Shear Zone #5 and more importantly the diamond drilling. 
  2. Revealed a gold mineralized Shear Zone to the south of Shear Zone #5 that we now call Shear Zone # 6.

The results are as follows:

Assays are conducted on NQ sized half core sections. The diamond drill core is logged and sampled following general industry practices whereby logged and sample marked core is sawn in half, with one-half bagged and tagged for shipment to the assay laboratory and the remaining half of the sawn core returned to the core box for storage and future reference. Blanks and assay standards are inserted at regular intervals in each sample batch. Assays are conducted using a standard fire assay technique on a 30 gram sample with a gravimetric finish by Laboratoire Expert Inc., of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Routine duplicates are completed by Laboratoire Expert inc. and Pulps and rejects are returned and stored in secure containers. Intersections are reported using drilled widths unless specified otherwise, with assay values as simple averages of duplicates and gravimetric results.

The mineralization on the south limb strikes Northeast -Southwest and dips to the north at 70 to 80 degrees. The drilling confirms the association of gold mineralization with Quartz feldspar (QFP) and syenite porphyry, found on both the Lakeshore and West Timmins Properties currently owned by Tahoe. The larger zones of mineralization display a strong spatial relationship with proximity to syenite intrusive rocks and high Fe-tholeitic volcanic rocks. The 3D Geological Model may be viewed on our website:

Explor is focused on developing a mineable resource based on the drill results that have been obtained to date. A NI 43-101 technical report has been completed by P & E Mining Consultants of Brampton, Ontario (Press Release dated August 27, 2013).

The results of Explor’s drilling have been incorporated into the Timmins Porcupine West Exploration Video which is available for viewing on the website. The Timmins Porcupine West Project has as a Target Model “The Hollinger-McIntyre-Coniaurum System.” To date, Explor’s drill program has confirmed the idealized Hollinger-McIntyre-Coniaurum (HMC) isometric model. The HMC system has produced a total of over 30 million oz of gold and is spatially associated with the Pearl Lake Porphyry.

The Timmins Porcupine West Gold Property consists of 185 unpatented mining units and 3 patented claims located in the Bristol and Ogden Townships in the Timmins-Porcupine Mining Camp for a total 3,200 hectares. The property is contiguous with Lakeshore Gold West Timmins Mine. Highway 101 bisects the property and provides access from the city of Timmins located 13 km to the east.

The property has been explored since 1927 by numerous ground geophysical surveys and diamond drilling of up to 111 holes. In 1984, Dome Exploration discovered and delineated a gold mineralized zone that was approximately 350 meters long and 45 meters wide and is open below 350 meters of vertical depth. The drill program on the Timmins Porcupine West Property is on- going.

Gold retakes $1,300 level for first time in 9 months $ $ $ $ $ $ $

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:50 AM on Friday, August 18th, 2017

  • Gold futures on Friday were trading above $1,300 for the first time in 2017 and were on track for their third straight daily gain, as precious metals drew haven demand
  • Sparked by a selloff in a global equities, a terrorist attack in Barcelona and concerns about President Donald Trump’s pro-business agenda

Gold for December delivery GCZ7, +0.60%  gained $8.60, or 0.7%, at $1,301.90 an ounce, marking the highest level for a most-active contract since Nov. 4, according to FactSet data. The yellow metal also is on pace for a weekly gain of about 0.5% based on last Friday’s closing level.

Meanwhile, September silver SIU7, +0.25%  also rose, picking up 12 cents, or 0.7%, at $17.170 an ounce, on track for a weekly gain of about 0.6% and its highest closing level since around June.

A flight to assets perceived as safe has been underpinned by Thursday’s selloff in equities, highlighted by the worst downdraft for the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.28% and S&P 500 index SPX, -0.16%  since May 17.

Selling accelerated on Thursday, and threatened to continue to undercut sentiment on Friday, after a van plowed into crowds in one of Barcelona’s tourist venues, killing at least 13 people and injuring scores. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the terror attack.

So-called risk assets, like stocks, had been riding higher drawing concerns that equities have become too richly priced making them vulnerable to a sharp slide after a run of repeated records and an erosion of confidence in Trump’s ability to enact policies that would help to boost the U.S. economy.

Markets were roiled Wednesday by unfounded rumors that presidential economic adviser Gary Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive, was set to resign his post as White House economic adviser in response to the president’s reaction to a white-supremacist rally that left one woman, Heather Heyer, dead. Trump’s response to the rally has caused a furor among business leaders.

That political turmoil has thrown into question Trump’s ability to follow through on campaign promises, including pledges on deregulation, tax cuts and a boost to infrastructure spending that had helped propel risk assets higher and gold lower.

However, mounting headwinds in the stock market have provided a path for gold and Treasury notes to climb higher.

The 10-year Treasury note TMUBMUSD10Y, -0.60%  was recently yielding 2.19%, compared with about 2.24% at the start of the week. Bond prices move inversely to yields.

Lower bond yields can help to support buying of precious metals, which don’t offer a yield.

Weakness in the U.S. dollar, buffeted by the trove of risk factors, including concerns that the Federal Reserve will be hesitant to lift interest rates further this year, also has helped to lift gold’s price. The ICE U.S. Dollar Index DXY, -0.24% which measures the buck against six rival currencies, was off 0.1% and down on the day, although it has climbed 0.5% this week.

A softer dollar makes purchasing assets priced in the currency more attractive to buyers using weaker monetary units.

In exchange-traded funds, SPDR Gold Shares GLD, +0.45%  was up 0.5%, the miner-focused VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF GDX, +1.24% gained 1% and iShares Silver Trust SLV, +0.25%  was trading 0.7% higher.

  • Received licensing documentation from the Icelandic government confirming that a definitive license to conduct mineral exploration on the Trollaskagi permit
  • Identified as EL06, granted to the company in July

Montreal, Quebec / August 17, 2017 – St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (CSE: SX) (OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) is pleased to announce that it has received licensing documentation from the Icelandic government confirming that a definitive license to conduct mineral exploration on the Trollaskagi permit, identified as EL06, was granted to the company in July.

As per press release dated March 16, 2017, St-Georges gained control, directly or indirectly, of all the active mineral tenures in Iceland through the acquisition of Iceland Resources EHF. The newly granted exploration license covers 1017.7 square kilometers and is located in northern Iceland near the town of Akureyri. The area is fairly accessible; tracks and roads encompass the majority of the permitted zone. The Company can also rely on the infrastructure of nearby municipalities.

Peaks in the region reach 1,538 meters above sea level. The area is characterized by calderas containing extensive rhyolite and low temperature zeolite alteration. A considerable reconnaissance effort was affected here by Melmi (Fleming, 2006) to identify any potential gold occurrences. Trollaskagi is located in an area with a mapped felsic central volcano that has not been explored in work conducted by previous explorers, Teck and Melmi. In 2006, Melmi conducted a program of stream sediment sampling in most of the major valleys using roads, tracks, and foot-traverses for access. Rock samples were also collected where alteration was encountered.

The license allows the holder to explore for minerals at surface, to research the dispersion, quantity and the geological and physical characteristics of the metals within the license area.

The license also allows the holder to perform drilling surveys in areas within the specified boundaries as long as the drilling program is submitted to the government and local authorities for compliance review and acceptance. This license does not give the holder permission to exploit a mining operation as mine permitting requires additional licensing reviews.

“(…) We are pleased with the decision of the Icelandic government in the matter of the Trollaskagi license,” said St-Georges’ president, Frank Dumas. “We have designed an initial exploration program for the area, which we expect to execute before the end of the next quarter. Findings will orient further work that should take place in late spring and summer of 2018. This is the second exploration license out of 8 applications that is granted to us and we are looking forward to continue our work in Iceland and move along the balance of our permitting effort (…) Achieving this milestone is essential as it demonstrates the expertise and commitment of our team in Iceland, and the Icelandic Government’s support of the development of the natural resource potential.”

Further information on the work program for Trollaskagi will be detailed in future press releases.

  • Start of drilling and trenching at it’s 100% owned Buckingham graphite project in Quebec
  • To date one hole and two trenches have been completed, all of which show visible graphite mineralization

Toronto, Ontario–(August 17, 2017) – CKR Carbon Corporation. (TSXV: CKR) (FSE: CB81) (“CKR” or the “Company”) an integrated graphite to hybrid graphenes advanced nano material development company is pleased to announce the start of drilling and trenching at it’s 100% owned Buckingham graphite project in Quebec. To date one hole and two trenches have been completed, all of which show visible graphite mineralization.

Graphite in the first hole occurs in mineralized marble from 20 metres to 30 metres and from 50 to 107 metres, with un-mineralized quartzite in between. Graphite also occurs in marble in the second hole from 10 metres to 28 metres which is the current depth of the hole.

Trenching is following up on electromagnetic anomalies determined by an airborne survey carried out in the fall of 2016. Two trenches have been completed, the first of which uncovered graphite mineralized marble with the graphite mineralization easily identified by blue-grey coloured smearing in the bottom of the trench (see Figure 1). The second trench also shows marble hosted graphite mineralization with the north wall of the trench appearing to be well mineralized (see Figure 2). The graphite mineralization uncovered by the trenches extends the known mineralization in the Case Zone a further 300 metres along strike to the south.

New Age Metals $ Provides 2017 Drill Program Update at the River Valley #Platinum Group Metal #PGM Project

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:43 AM on Thursday, August 17th, 2017

New age large

  • Midway through 16,500ft drill program
  • Abitibi Geophysics has completed the final IP geophysical report
  • Drilling has been focused on follow-up drilling to further test the continuation of the Pine Zone and Dana North Zone
  • Further drilling will test the geophysical targets from the IP Survey
  • River Valley is the Largest Undeveloped Primary PGM resource in Canada, with 2.5 Moz PGM, in Measured Plus Indicated mineral resources and near-surface mineralization covering over 16kms of strike.

August 17th, 2017 / Vancouver, Canada – New Age Metals Inc. (TSXV: NAM; OTCQB: PAWEF; FSE: P7J.F) is pleased to announce that the 2017 Drill Program is at the midway point in the planned program on the Dana North (T3) and Pine Zone at the River Valley PGM Project, approximately 100 kilometers east of Sudbury, Ontario. The Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical survey and borehole geophysics was completed by Abitibi Geophysics and a final report has been completed. The first portion of the drill program was concentrated on follow-up drill testing of the 2015-2016 PGM mineralization at the Pine Zone. Drilling will now focus on the geophysical interpretation from the recently completed IP Survey.

The Pine Zone is one of numerous prospective PGM zones (Figure 2) within the district-scale River Valley PGM Project and was recently drilled in the fall of 2016 (press release December 13, 2016). The 2016 drill program confirmed the higher-grade, near-surface PGM discovery made in the 2015 drill program (press release March 11, 2015), and highlighted the continuity of the mineralization for 200 metres along strike and 100-200 metres depth at the Pine Zone. The Pine Zone remains open along strike and at depth. The recent drill program (Figure 1) has completed 6 follow-up holes on this zone. Approximately 5000 meters (16,500 feet) of drilling is planned for the present drill program. The first batch of assays has been sent to the laboratory and results are expected in the next few weeks. The second batch of assays is scheduled to be sent to the laboratory after the next drill hole.

The surface IP geophysical survey was designed to test the eastward and southward extension and dip/plunge of the Pine Zone, as well as the adjacent Dana North Zone (Figure 1). The extension of the IP survey tested the Banshee Zone. Initial interpretations are complete and the final report has been completed. Several new targets from the geophysics have been identified and are planned for drill testing.

This present exploration activity of drilling and geophysics is geared to establish the resource base for a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) Report which the company plans to complete before the end of 2018.

To date (not including the present drill program) approximately 671 holes (152,394 metres) have been conducted by the company and its past major joint venture partners to test the PGM mineralization extents of the River Valley Intrusion. As well, several 43-101 complaint resource estimates have been generated. The River Valley Deposit is the Largest Undeveloped Primary PGM resource in Canada, with 2.5M oz PGM, in Measured Plus Indicated mineral resources and near-surface mineralization covering over 16kms of continuous strike length and open at depth.

The Company will continue to update investors as the drill results are received.


NAM’s flagship project is its 100% owned River Valley PGM Project (NAM Website – River Valley Project) in the Sudbury Mining District of Northern Ontario (100 km east of Sudbury, Ontario). Presently the River Valley Project is Canada’s largest primary undeveloped PGM deposit with Measured + Indicated resources of 91 million tonnes @ 0.58 g/t* Palladium, 0.22 g/t Platinum, 0.04 g/t Gold, at a cut-off grade of 0.8 g/t for a PdEq of 2,463,000 ounces PGM plus Gold. The River Valley PGM-Copper-Nickel Sulphide mineralized zones remain open to expansion, and geophysics currently completed and drilling to commence mid July 2017 as part of our ongoing continued exploration.

In 2016, the Company acquired the River Valley extension property from Mustang Minerals which added approximately 4kms to the project’s mineralized strike length to the southern portion of the intrusion.


The Company has five pegmatite hosted Lithium Projects in the Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field, located in SE Manitoba. This Pegmatite Field hosts the world class Tanco Pegmatite that has been mined for Tantalum, Cesium and Spodumene (one of the primary Lithium ore minerals) in varying capacities, since 1969. NAM’s Lithium Projects are strategically situated in this prolific Pegmatite Field. Presently, NAM is the largest mineral claim holder in the Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field and is seeking JV partners to further develop the company’s Li division.

Glacier Lake $ Commences 2017 Exploration Program at #Silver Vista

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:03 PM on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

  • Commenced the 2017 first pass exploration program on its Silver Vista property near Smithers, British Columbia
  • Multiple objectives of the first pass program are to verify access into the various parts of the property, locate the main showings and prospect favourable areas

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 16, 2017 — Glacier Lake Resources Inc. (“Glacier”  “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced the 2017 first pass exploration program on its Silver Vista property near Smithers, British Columbia. The multiple objectives of the first pass program are to verify access into the various parts of the property, locate the main showings and prospect favourable areas identified by Amarc Resources Ltd., during its 2011 through 2014 exploration programs.

Glacier Lake plans to follow this first pass program with a diamond drilling program later in the field season. The Company has posted the requested bond with the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines and anticipates receiving its drilling permit shortly.

The drilling will target the MR zone, a clastic sediment-hosted, fine grained, disseminated copper silver zone. Historic exploration includes soil geochemistry, trenching and diamond drilling in an area of limited outcrop exposure:

Soil geochemistry outlined an area approximately 1.5 by 2.0 kilometres around the MR prospect area.Six excavator trenches highlighted an area 100 metres long by 17 metres wide, with three of the trenches intersecting mineralized bedrock: trench 2 – 10.5 metres at 0.22% Cu and 38 gpt Ag, trench 3 – 16.5 metres at 0.53% Cu and 74 gpt Ag and trench 4 – 15 metres at 0.53% Cu and 28 gpt Ag.Fourteen drill holes totaling 1,252.5 metres identified a semi-continuous zone 300 metres long by 50 metres wide by 3 to 150 metres deep with two of the holes ending in mineralization. Key intercepts include: MR91-01 – 32.87 metres at 0.19% Cu and 34.8 gpt Ag, MR91-03 – 61.91 metres at 0.11% Cu and 40.5 gpt Ag, MR91-04 – 25.9 metres at 0.08% Cu and 62.6 gpt Ag and MR92-02 – 36.58 metres at 0.49% Cu and 26.8 gpt Ag.

Three other anomalous zones were identified by Amarc during its exploration programs. Further details can be found in the recently completed 43-101 report on the property located under the Company’s SEDAR profile.
