Fire River Gold – Press Release Of The Week – 28.8 g/t (0.84 opt) gold over 13.7 m (44.9 ft)

Posted by AGORACOM at 1:15 AM on Friday, March 18th, 2011

The Japan disaster overshadowed any and all other news in the world on Monday and Tuesday, including Libya and Bahrain, so it was pretty easy to miss press releases coming out of TSX Venture companies.

One of those press releases came out of Fire River Gold (FAU:TSXV) (FVGCF:OTCQX) (FWR:FSE) and it was simply spectacular.  In fact, it is the press release of the week.  Here are the headline numbers, followed by the press release:

28.8 g/t (0.84 opt) gold over 13.7 m (44.9 ft) in hole N10U-038

o including 96.1 g/t (2.80 opt) gold over 0.9 m (2.9 ft)

o including 118.5 g/t (3.46 opt) gold plus 2.8% copper over 1.3 m (4.3 ft) at 3300 Zone

202.7 g/t (5.91 opt) Gold Over 1.0 m (3.6 ft) in hole N10U-040

o 8.6 g/t (0.25 opt) over 1.5 m (4.9 ft)

These results came out of the Company’s Nixon Fork Gold Mine In Alaska, which was acquired in September 2009.  From 1995 – 2007, the project produced approximately 175,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 39 grams per ton (1.14 opt).

GOLD PRODUCTION COMMENCING

As if the numbers on their own weren’t good enough, the company has announced that gold production is commencing in the summer of 2011 with a 200 tpd Mill and operating expenditures of $447/oz GOLD.

FULL PRESS RELEASE

March 14, 2011 Vancouver, Canada – Fire River Gold Corp (TSXV: FAU) (OTCQX: FVGCF) (FSE: FWR) (“FAU” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results obtained from the 2010 28,000 metre drill program at the Nixon Fork Gold Mine situated in Alaska’s Tintina Gold Belt. The Company has received assay results of holes 36 through 40 (N10U-036 – N10U-040) from the lower extension 3000 and 3300 Zones.

New significant intercepts include N10U-038 returning grades of 28.8 g/t (0.84 opt) gold over 13.7 m (44.9 ft), including 96.1 g/t (2.80 opt) over 0.9 m (2.9 ft) and including 118.5 g/t (3.46 opt) over 1.3 m (4.3 ft) at lower extension 3300 Zone and intercept N10U-040 returning grades of 202.7 g/t (5.91 opt) Gold Over 1.0 m (3.6 ft) at lower extension 3000 Zone. A complete list of significant intercepts is provided in Table 1. The widths of the intercepts are approximate to the true width of the mineralized intercept.

The Company is once again encouraged with the results from the 2010 drill program, because it is exhibiting the potential to provide additional resources to the mill. Drill results are being used to guide the six-month operating plan for the mine start up.

All core from the 2010 program was logged at the Nixon Fork Mine camp. The core was then sawn in half, and half of the sample shipped to ALS Minerals, a certified analytical laboratory located in Reno Nevada and a subsidiary of ALS Laboratory Group.

Nixon Fork Gold Mine

The Nixon Fork Gold Mine was acquired in September 2009.  From 1995 – 2007, the project produced approximately 175,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 39 grams per ton (1.14 opt). The mining and processing facilities at Nixon Fork are permitted and bonded. The deposit is a gold-rich copper silver skarn typical of other skarn systems found throughout the world. At Nixon Fork, the higher grades are found in steeply plunging pipe-like bodies which are oxidized to depths of up to 350 meters below the surface. Oxidization of the system has resulted both in secondary copper and gold, with high grades and a “nuggety” distribution.

The Qualified Person for this news release is Richard Goodwin, P.Eng, President & C.O.O for Fire River Gold.

About Fire River Gold Corp.

Fire River Gold Corp. is a near term production company with an experienced technical team focused on bringing its flagship project, the Nixon Fork Gold Mine, back into production in 2011. The Nixon Fork Gold Mine is a permitted and bonded mine which include a ~200 tpd processing plant with a gravity gold circuit, sulphide flotation circuit and a gold recovery system (CIL circuit) that is scheduled to be completed by Summer 2011.

Donner Metals Goes Beyond The Press Release In Video Interview About Latest Press Releases

Posted by AGORACOM at 5:49 PM on Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

I’m happy to present to you the with our latest installment of “Beyond the Press Release”, a video interview featuring Donner Metals (DON:TSXV) Chairman, Dave Patterson, discussing the significance of the Company’s last two press releases in layman’s terms for the benefit of retail investors.

The two press releases are as follows:

September 2, 2010: Donner Metals Receives A Positive Feasibility Study For The Bracemac-McLeod Deposit in the Matagami Base Metal Camp in Central Québec

September 1, 2010: Inferred Resources At Bracemac-McLeod Expand by 2.07 Million Tonnes of Massive Sulphides Grading 10.66% Zinc, 1.33% Copper, 41.72g/t Silver and 1.21g/t Gold Identified in the McLeod Deep Zone

If you’re a shareholder of Donner Metals, you will enjoy David’s candid and thorough responses during our discussion.  This is especially true given the fact junior resource companies are forced to issue highly technical press releases that are not always well understood by retail investors.

If you’re just discovering Donner for the first time, grab a coffee and kick back in your chair for the next 15 minutes.  Yes, we provide some online marketing services for Donner – so assume I am horribly conflicted.  Then take into account this junior has partnered with Xstrata Zinc Canada, who is now in the process of constructing a mine that is set for production in a couple of years.

Please click the image below to watch the full interview.

ABOUT DONNER:

Donner Metals Ltd. is a Canadian base metals exploration and development company located in Vancouver B.C. The Company is focused on base and precious metal exploration throughout Canada.

The Matagami Camp is supported by Xstrata Zinc’s existing mine infrastructure, highly experienced workforce and an operating 2,600 tonne per day mill, as well as highway, railway and town site infrastructure. This infrastructure will benefit discoveries made under Donner’s agreement with Xstrata Zinc.

Congratulations To Timmins Gold (TMM:TSXV)

Posted by AGORACOM at 1:17 PM on Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

Congratulations to my friends Bruce, Arturo and Alex over at Timmins Gold.  The company recently announced that commercial production was achieved at its San Francisco open pit mine in Mexico (I know I’m a little late on this but I’ve been a little distracted lately)

They are one of the most underrated junior gold producers out there in my opinion, which is why I bought shares in the company at $.80 back when Sprott financed the company, including warrants at the same price.  I sold 1/2 in the $1.35 – 1.40 range a couple of months ago but intend to hold the rest for now.

TIMMINS – SAN FRANCISCO – MEXICO .. HA!

What I find particularly amazing and funny is the company is named Timmins Gold, its main project is called the San Francisco Gold Mine and it is actually located in Mexico.  Throw the 22 immutable laws of branding out the window, TMM has broken them all en route to its success 🙂

ONLINE PRESENTATION

Timmins Gold participated in the AGORACOM Online Gold & Commodities Conference back in December 2009.  Here is a link to the presentation if you want to get a great overview of the company – but keep in mind it is 4 months old so you should check the company’s press releases for further updates since then.

We’ve actually covered the company via AGORACOM Small Cap TV since late 2007.

CANACCORD MORNING COFFEE

Peter Grandich posted an update on Timmins that appears to be from the Canaccord Capital, Morning Coffee e-mail message back on April 9th.  Not sure if Canaccord allows it to be posted but since it’s now out in the open, I’ve pasted it below for your convenience.  As a shareholder of the company, assume I am horribly conflicted and make sure to do your own DD.

===============

“Time for you to tag along? Shares of Timmins Gold were not taking a siesta Thursday, rallying on news that commercial production was achieved at its San Francisco open pit mine in Mexico. . .Timmins continues to project production of 80,000 ounces of gold in 2010 with average life-of-mine cash costs of US$412/oz of gold. Canaccord Adams Mining Analyst Nicholas Campbell is looking for production of 74,000 ounces of gold in 2010 at a cash cost of US$468/oz.

With the project successfully achieving commercial production, the company intends to shift its focus from development to exploration. In particular, Timmins plans to complete an exploration program to test for the potential to push back the pit wall to the south, southwest and southeast as well as potentially develop the Chicharra pit to the west.

Based on the current estimated reserve base, at the expanded throughput rate the San Francisco project has a mine life of roughly 4.5 years. However, in addition to reserves, there are 170,000 ounces of measured, indicated and inferred resources that have not been incorporated into the mine plan.

Campbell believes shares could trade significantly higher based on the following: 1) A revaluation as the company moves from development to production: Timmins is trading at 3.2x 2011E CFPS vs. a junior producer average of 11.9x 2011E CFPS. As Timmins ramps up and achieves commercial production at San Francisco, he believes the valuation gap should start to narrow; 2) potential to expand the mine life of San Francisco; and 3) an acquisition target.

Shares trade at a significant discount on P/NAV and Campbell views Timmins as a tag-on acquisition target for a junior producer with operation in Mexico. The next catalyst for Timmins should be the release of an updated resource estimate, expected this quarter. Campbell is also looking for a new resource approaching 1.0 million ounces of gold, which should allow the company to expand the mine life by 3–4 years.”

Firestone Ventures Joins AGORACOM 100 With NI 43-101: 330 Million Pounds of Zinc, 114 Million Pounds of Lead and 978,000 Ounces of Silver Defined to Date

Posted by AGORACOM at 3:00 PM on Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

Fv

I am pleased to announce that  Firestone Ventures (FV: TSX) is the newest member of The AGORACOM 100.  With NI 43-101: 330 Million Pounds of Zinc, 114 Million Pounds of Lead and 978,000 Ounces of Silver Defined to Date, Firestone is definetly AGORACOM 100 material.

Firestone Ventures Inc. is exploring and advancing its road-accessible Torlon Hill zinc-lead-silver project in Guatemala, Central America. Since early 2006, 8,400 metres of drilling in 101 holes has identified mineral resources totalling 330 million pounds of zinc, 114 million pounds of lead and 978,000 ounces of silver. The Torlon Hill deposit is on or near-surface and is open for expansion.

In late 2008 and during 2009, Firestone completed additional land acquisitions, data compilation and re-interpretation of historic data, mapping, prospecting, and soil sampling. Fieldcrews are currently conducting regional exploration and zinc occurrence evaluation in preparation for drilling in early 2010. The company plans to expand on the resource defined at Torlon Hill in addition to drilling additional zinc targets in the regional carbonate belt.

As always, assume I am horribly conflicted by the fact Firestone is now a client of AGORACOM and do your own due diligence.  Here are some of the things we like about the company:

Exploring The Torlon Hill Zinc Project In Guatemala

  • Artisanal mining and smelting of lead for over 300 centuries; zinc potential of property had never been tested.
  • Torlon Hill is a direct replacement zinc-lead-silver deposit on the boundary between two major tectonic plates.
  • Deposit is almost completely oxidized to smithsonite (zinc carbonate) with remnant galena.
  • Road accessible, 100% owned by Firestone Ventures Inc.
  • First ever drill program started in early 2006.
  • 8400 m drilled to date in 101 drill holes, deposit is open to expansion.
  • High-grade zinc mineralization is exposed on surface and is near-surface in drill holes.
  • 330 million pounds of zinc, 114 million pounds of lead and 978,000 ounces of silver defined to date.
  • Excellent upside to exploration in the surrounding area to increase tonnage.
