Crescat December Gold Market Update SPONSOR: Fabled Silver Gold $FCO.ca $GGD.ca $EDR.ca $RDU.ca $KTN.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 1:16 PM on Wednesday, December 30th, 2020

SPONSOR: Fabled’s mandate is on acquiring precious metals properties in Mexico with blue-sky exploration potential. Fabled is actively developing the Santa Maria property, a high-grade silver-gold property situated in the center of the Mexican epithermal silver-gold belt. The Santa Maria property has never been systematically explored. Click Here For More Info

The End Game

Dear Investors:

Markets are cyclical. Today, stocks trade at record high valuations while commodities are historically undervalued in relation. The setup is in place for a macro pivot in the relative performance of these two asset classes. Comparable conditions were present with the 1972 Nifty Fifty and 2000 Dotcom bubbles as we show in the chart below.

As capital seeks to redeploy towards the highest growth and lowest valuation opportunities, we expect analytically minded investors will soon be rotating, if not stampeding, out of expensive deflation-era growth equities and fixed income securities and into cheap hard assets, creating a reversal in the 30-year declining trend of money velocity.

Today’s Modern Monetary Theory world with its double barreled fiscal and monetary stimulus is crashing head on with an accumulation of years of declining investment in the basic industries such as materials, energy, and agriculture. In our analysis, the “end game” for the Fed’s twin asset bubbles in stocks and bonds is inflation. We can already see it developing on the commodity front.

The scarcity of jobs and abundance of debt were factors preventing the economy from reaching its full growth potential even before Covid-19. Such have been the concepts underlying the output gap, the theoretical paradox that is thought to have held inflation in check over the course of the last business cycle. But based on comparable historic periods, the macro setup for inflation is more likely to be kicked off by an input gap, i.e., shortages in the primary resources needed for both a strong reserve currency and economic growth at the same time as policy makers pull out their biggest bazookas yet to boost aggregate demand. We expect a new wave of rising commodity prices, set up by past underinvestment in basic resources, to soon ripple through the global supply chain creating a headwind for real living standards. Welcome to the Great Reset.

The global economy is at risk of commodity supply shock inflation, something we have not experienced since the 1970s. Both the Bloomberg Commodities Index and the US 30-year inflation expectations are now re-testing a 12-year resistance line. A significant breakout from here would be a big shift in the macro investing landscape. Yes, the aging demographics problem and significant technological advancements are deflationary tailwinds. But in our view, the key reason why consumer prices have not gone higher is due to a long-standing period of depressed commodity prices, a trend which we think is about to change.

The Constrained Supply for Gold

When it comes to scarce commodities, at Crescat, we have an affinity first and foremost for gold and silver, the monetary metals that are among the most supply constrained resources on the planet. Coincidentally, they are facing a new surge of investor demand.

On the supply side, in the disinflationary environment since the precious metals mining industry’s prior peak in 2011, gold and silver miners have been criticized by investors as being capital destroyers. As a result, the industry’s spending discipline in the last decade has swung completely the other way. The majors have underinvested in replacing their reserves creating a supply cliff for the industry while also substantially boosting free cash flow.

Contributing to the supply shortage, the number of major new gold discoveries by year, i.e., greater than 2 million Troy ounces, has been in a declining secular trend for 30 years including the cyclical boost between 2000 and 2007. At Crescat, we have been building an activist portfolio of gold and silver mining exploration companies that we believe will kick off a new cyclical surge in discoveries over the next several years from today’s depressed levels.

Gold mining exploration expense industrywide, down sharply since 2012, has been one of the issues adding to the supply problems today. Crescat is providing capital to the industry to help reverse this trend.

Since 2012, there has also been a declining trend of capital expenditures toward developing new mines. From a macro standpoint, gold prices are likely to be supported by this lack of past investment until these trends are dramatically reversed over the next several years. Credit availability for gold and silver mining companies completely dried up over the last decade. Companies were forced to buckle up and apply strict capital controls to financially survive during that period. Investors demanded significant reductions in debt and equity issuances while miners had to effectively tighten up operational costs, cut back investment, and prioritize the quality of their balance sheet assets.

It is important to consider that the last times this industry had been acting in a similarly conservative fashion, metal prices were at historically low-price levels. This time, however, we are seeing corporate discipline with gold prices remaining near all-time highs. As a result, the major producers today have surprisingly swung into being cash flow machines. They are enjoying more free cash flow than they had in the past 25 years, an incredibly bullish setup for the entire industry, especially the smaller exploration focused players that Crescat is overweight in today. The majors are in a great position to harvest cash for the next few years. But they are also facing a supply cliff because they have not replaced their reserves. Over the next several years, they will need to make acquisitions in the exploration segment to rebuild them. 

The Demand Side for Gold

On the demand side, the first key macro driver for the price of gold is central bank debt monetization, which drives increasing inflation expectations and investor demand for inflation protection for accumulated savings. Today, money printing through central bank balance sheet expansion is widely accepted and embraced. It is the only viable policy as a way out of the otherwise deflationary global debt burden, at a historic high of 365% of worldwide GDP. With deficits at World War II levels in the US, we expect money printing to be the path of least resistance among policy makers towards easing debt burdens and reconciling many of today’s economic imbalances, though it will likely come at a cost to savers who are invested in overvalued traditional financial assets.

As we show in the chart below, gold underperformed the pace of global money printing from 2011 to 2018. But since the Repo Crisis in 2019 and the coronavirus led recession that followed, global QE has been accelerating to the upside once again. Gold is being pulled up with it. Our near-term target price for gold is north of $3,000 per Troy oz. based on our macro model shown below that plots the price of gold vs. the aggregation of the top eight central bank balance sheets. This target will almost certainly be rising in the near-term with $5.8 trillion just in US Treasuries alone maturing in 2021 and much of that needing to be rolled over and funded by the lender of last resort.

The Fed, the printer of the world reserve currency, has given itself, and by extension its central bank counterparts around the world, the green light to err on the side of inflation. The US central bank has declared that it can exceed its 2% inflation target temporarily abandoning one side of its dual mandate to favor the other side of it which is full employment. So, err on the side of inflation, the Fed almost certainly will.

Inflation is a toothpaste that sovereign Treasuries and their central banks throughout history have struggled putting back in the tube once they have let it out. In practice, inflation is driven in large part by the expectations and actions of consumers and investors which are hard to predict and occur with lags and unknown multiplier effects in relation to monetary policies. When consumer and investor psychology shifts toward recognizing and acting upon rising inflation, it becomes highly reflexive, i.e., circular and self-reinforcing.

The second key macro driver for upward trending gold prices on the demand side today is declining real interest rates, which are a combined reflection of central bank interest rate suppression tactics and investors’ rising inflation expectations. The recent plunge lower in real yields (shown inverted in the chart below) has diverged from the price of gold signaling a strong impending move upward again in the metal.

The outlook for gold all ties back to the bigger macro imbalances we see in the US economy today. The Federal Reserve is crippled in its ability to prevent inflation and instead has become the funding mechanism through its massive purchases of US Treasuries that enables the US government to run a large fiscal deficit. The Fed essentially has no independence in the matter. It must fund the government’s fiscal stimulus programs as the lender of last resort. And as the repo crisis showed, the liquidity is also necessary in the short run to prevent the equity and corporate bond markets from collapsing, but this is very shortsighted because rising commodity prices and real-world inflation, that is the byproduct of the newly printed money, is the killer of record overvalued financial assets.

Three Comparable Macro Setups in History

We expect inflation expectations to continue to rise at a faster rate than nominal interest rates. This is ultimately a self-reinforcing catalyst to drive investors out of overvalued stocks and credit and into scarce commodities including precious metals and oil, which is exactly what happened in three similar macro setups to today:

1. During the dotcom bust at the turn of the century, the NASDAQ Composite declined 78% over two and a  half years, a period during which gold stocks diverged to the upside to begin a five-fold march upward over the next seven years, while energy and industrial commodities also caught fire.

2. In the 1974-74 bear market, the S&P 500 declined 50% in two years while gold mining stocks increased five-fold at the same time as oil prices skyrocketed during the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo and a decade of stagflation was born.

We showed the supply cliff setup for gold earlier, but it is important to note that there could also be a supply shortage in oil setting up for the next several years after the most drastic capex cuts in infrastructure and exploration we have seen in the history of this industry. In that vein, the rig count cyclicality has been an incredibly reliable contrarian forward looking indicator for oil prices. As shown in the chart, prior historical dips also preceded key market bottoms in WTI prices and the oil and gas industry.

3. The third comparable period, also highly apt for today, was coming out of the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 and 1919. At that time, the health crisis had severely limited the industrial capacity of the economy, leading to major supply shortages of raw materials and causing commodity inflation at the same time as the world began to heal. The rise in wholesale prices became a global phenomenon. Grocery stores began hoarding inventories to sell at higher prices, forcing governments to intervene and criminalize these actions to avoid an even larger hit to the consumer. The cost of living surged and prompted major labor union protests on the streets demanding higher wages and salaries only exacerbating the problem. Inflation spiked above 20% in 1920 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average began a decline of 47% from peak to trough from 1920 to 1921 while the world emerged from the pandemic. We will not go there in depth now, but this was the same time that a whole different kind of inflation was arising in Germany from newly printed money to pay off accumulated war debts.

The Opportunity for Activist Gold Exploration

As we showed above, the underinvestment in most of the last decade in the gold mining industry will soon send the majors scrambling to invest their near term soaring free cash flow in the most prospective new gold and silver deposits being explored today. These properties are in the hands of the extremely undervalued and ultra-depressed small cap segment of the mining industry, the junior explorers, a group that has been through a brutal, capital starved bear market that effectively lasted ten years. The whole industry completed a double-bottom retest by successfully holding above its 2015 lows and rebounding sharply to lead all industries in stock price performance coming off the March 2020 correction. We think there is much more performance ahead for this industry as it is still in the early stages of a new secular bull market.

We are confident that within the precious metals mining industry, the most value for shareholders will be created from the small cap exploration segment over the next several years. We think Crescat’s Precious Metals Fund and SMA strategies have already started to demonstrate that potential in 2020.

By working with world-renowned exploration geologist, Quinton Hennigh as Crescat’s geologic and technical advisor, Crescat has already created an activist portfolio of over 50 companies where we are among the largest shareholders of a targeted 200 million ounces new high-grade gold equivalent discoveries. We plan to continue to grow these targeted ounces while getting the needed investment capital to our companies to prove out these economic deposits through drilling and discovery.

Crescat’s activist fund is a large and significant capital deployment opportunity. We are currently seeking a select group of right-minded institutional partners who can understand and appreciate the focus, scale, and timeliness of what we have set out to accomplish in this fund. 

Our activist portfolio is positioned ahead of a likely major new wave of M&A by the large and mid-tier producers which is still to come as they necessarily must replace their reserves through acquisition. We also have a handful of holdings that we call keepers, the cream of the crop companies that control the unquestionably new world class, high grade gold and silver deposits that will catapult them into the next great mid and large cap gold producers in the industry over the course of the new secular bull market.

To be frank, buying gold or silver is not a contrarian investment position today. There are enough people in agreement with the idea that all government backed fiat currencies are doomed to some level of devaluation through inflation due to the level of fiscal and monetary imprudence and unsustainable debt imbalances in the financial system. Naturally, with a constructive view on precious metals, the next step for most investors is to start dipping their toes into well-known and established mining companies. Despite their past reputation of being capital destroyers, investors today are warming up to the idea of buying the “Newmonts and Barricks” of the world or even ETFs such as GDX and GDXJ. What we see as contrarian, however, is a much bigger opportunity to unlock value through a well targeted activist strategy in the exploration segment of the industry. No doubt, many are skeptical of the gold exploration business, given its poor performance during the last downturn in the industry at large, but the biggest gains today in the industry are likely to come from what are the smaller cap names. Between Crescat and its 21 years of money management experience and Quinton Hennigh with his 30+ years of gold mining exploration experience to serve as Crescat’s geologic and technical advisor, we believe we have the expertise and preparedness to navigate this incredible opportunity before us. We hope you will join us as we seek to exploit the mispriced opportunities on the exploration and discovery side of the Lassonde Curve that is still in the early stages of what is likely to be a new rip-roaring secular bull market for precious metals.

Candente Gold $CDG.ca Engages Permitting Team and Provides Updates $FMG.ca $MEX.ca $AGI.ca $DSV.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:46 AM on Wednesday, December 23rd, 2020
https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.agoracom.com/public/companies/logos/563973/hub/Candente_Gold_Hub_Logo.gif

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Candente Gold Corp. (TSXV:CDG) (“Candente Gold” and/or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that technical experts have been engaged for permitting and deposit modelling for the El Dorado and Cocula projects and for permitting for the San Dieguito de Arriba (“SDA”) plant. Claudia Santos of Consultoría Ambiental VUGALIT S.C. will be handling permitting with Barney Lee, of Mingeo International S.A. de C.V.

Yenlai Chee, of Mountain Goat Consulting, is developing three dimensional models for the El Oro, Cocula and El Dorado mineral deposits to assist in understanding the deposits and in identifying higher grade zones.

Cocula Gold Project

The Company recently signed the Definitive Agreement for profit sharing on the Cocula Gold Project which gives Candente Gold the right to receive 70% of profits that may be derived from mining and processing of the deposit. Upon signing this agreement, a second payment of US$20,000 was made to the owners of the property.  

Grades of 5.66 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold over 6 metres and 4.32 g/t gold over 8 metres occur in quartz breccia bodies in an oxidized zone that to date has been delineated over an 800 metre length and 54 metre depth. Metallurgical testing indicates that this portion of the deposit is expected to be amenable to either heap, vat or dynamic (agitation) leaching.

In addition, higher grade mineralization associated with sulphides is also known to occur in veins at Cocula. Grades of 59 g/t gold and 729 g/t silver were obtained from a selected sample over a 10 centimetre (“cm”) width in the hanging wall of a quartz vein-breccia structure near the portal of a collapsed adit.   This style of mineralization will be further explored for the potential for mineralization that could be amenable to flotation and processed at our SDA plant.

The Cocula Project area is located within the Ameca Mining District of Jalisco State which is home to Agnico Eagle’s El Barqueño Project, Endeavor Silver’s Terronera Project and GoGold’s Los Ricos Project. Please see News Releases dated September 10th and October 22nd, 2020 as well as http://www.candentegold.com/s/cocula.asp for further details on the Cocula Project.

SDA Plant and El Dorado

The Company has received final TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) approval for the Definitive Agreement to acquire the SDA plant and the rights to an agreement on the El Dorado property from Magellan Acquisition Corp. (“Magellan”).   The company is issuing 5,000,000 shares for Magellan’s rights to the El Dorado property and to obtain the first 10% interest in the SDA plant. The Definitive Agreement also gives Candente Gold the right to earn up to 100% interest in the plant by issuing shares in stages over 30 months totaling a value of US$1.425 million. Magellan has also agreed that the total number of shares to be issued for the 100% interest will not exceed 33,500,000.

SDA Plant

The SDA plant consists of a flotation plant which also includes a precious metals leach circuit – Merrill Crowe system and associated assets, licenses and agreements.   The plant lies within the rich Sierra Madre Occidental mineralized belt, which historically has yielded millions of ounces (“oz”) of precious metals and offers multiple high-grade gold and silver epithermal vein opportunities.   For further details, please see News Releases dated April 28 and September 28, 2020 as well as http://www.candentegold.com/s/sda.asp.

El Dorado

The El Dorado Gold-Silver Project is located in the Pacific Coastal Plain, State of Nayarit, within a district of epithermal vein systems which is known to host high grade gold and silver in several veins.

The El Dorado vein system has a history of small-scale mining from two veins and is reported to extend over 3.5 km. Within this system, a mineralized zone 400 meters long and up to 180 meters to depth has been delineated by drilling by previous explorers.   Average grades are reported to be in the ranges of 4.4 to 9.8 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold and 113 to 239 g/t silver, however, drilling has intersected grades ranging from 3.0 to 40.0 gold and 57 to 500 g/t silver over widths ranging from 0.52 meters to 11.2 meters. Silver, lead, zinc and copper mineralization also occurs in the Cocula deposit and is expected to provide secondary credits.

The El Dorado property lies 50 km south of the SDA Plant. The project has excellent road and rail infrastructure.   For further details, please see News Releases dated April 28 and September 28, 2020 as well as http://www.candentegold.com/s/eldorado.asp.

AGM

The Company is pleased to report that all matters submitted to the shareholders for approval as set out in the Company’s Notice of Meeting and Information Circular, dated November 13, 2020, were approved at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on December 18th, 2020 in Vancouver (the “AGM”). A total of 34,356,926 shares were voted, representing 31.17% of total shares issued and outstanding as of the record date of the Meeting.

All of the current Directors: Joanne C. Freeze, Larry D. Kornze, Ian Ward, Mark Lotz and Matthew Melnyk were re-elected.   Shareholders also voted in favour of (i) appointing Davidson & Company LLP, Chartered Professional Accountants as auditors of the Company for the ensuing year and authorizing directors to fix their remuneration; (ii) approving the Company’s Stock Option Plan of the Company; and (iii) approving Other Business that may properly come before the meeting or any adjournment or adjournments thereof.

Xali Gold Corp.

The Company also advises that it plans to change its name to Xali Gold Corp. in early 2021 which will include both a change of trading symbol and CUSIP number. The Company will advise the actual date for the change once all of the above is confirmed.

About Candente Gold

Candente Gold has launched a comprehensive growth strategy to build a cash flowing business platform and gain access to properties with near surface exploration potential while maintaining El Oro as its flagship asset and an integral part of the overall growth strategy. The acquisition of the SDA Plant, the El Dorado historic mines and the Cocula Project signify important initial steps.

The financial benefits from Western Mexico operations and the addition of specialized personnel will translate across platforms to strengthen the Company’s efforts to explore and potentially mine areas demonstrated to contain mineralization of value. The Company is currently evaluating other properties that are complementary to the SDA plant, El Dorado and the Cocula Project.

El Oro is a district scale gold project encompassing a well-known prolific high-grade gold dominant gold-silver epithermal vein system in Mexico.   The project covers 20 veins with past production and more than 57 veins in total, from which approximately 6.4 million ounces of gold and 74 million ounces of silver were reported to have been produced from just two of these veins (Ref. Mexico Geological Service Bulletin No. 37, Mining of the El Oro and Tlapujahua Districts. 1920, T. Flores*)

Modern understanding of epithermal vein systems indicates that several of the El Oro district’s veins hold excellent discovery potential, particularly below and adjacent to the historic workings of the San Rafael Vein, which was mined to an average depth of only 200 metres.

Joanne C. Freeze, P.Geo., President, CEO and Director and Matthew Melnyk, CPG., Director Operations and Director are Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101 for the projects discussed above, however, they have not been able to visit the El Dorado or Cocula Projects nor the SDA Plant recently due to COVID virus travel restrictions. The work discussed in the News Release is either historical and documented by public records or conducted by Mexican professionals with qualifications similar to those of QP’s registered in Canada. Ms. Freeze and Mr. Melnyk have reviewed and approved the contents of this release.

Fabled Silver Gold $FCO.ca Commences Drilling at Santa Maria Property Following Successful IP Survey Identifying 11 New Anomalies $GGD.ca $EDR.ca $RDU.ca $KTN.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:25 AM on Monday, December 14th, 2020

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 14, 2020) – Fabled Silver Gold Corp. (TSXV: FCO) (“Fabled” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce the completion of the first ever ground geophysical survey on the Santa Maria Property, in Parral, Mexico and subsequent commencement of drilling. Fabled’s management team strongly believes that the Santa María Property is an under-explored, high-grade silver-gold project with significant exploration potential to expand mineral resources and identify new discoveries.

The first phase of drilling will consist of a minimum of 8,000 meters of HQ size core with a Versadrill 1.4 mount track. Drilling is expected to define the Santa Maria veining at depth and to the east and west using the IP anomalies as a target. This will be followed by pure exploration to test virgin IP targets to the north of the property, as identified by the recent survey. Fabled has awarded the surface diamond drill contract to Maza Diamond Drilling SA DE CV.

Peter J. Hawley, CEO and President remarks: “This is the first ever detailed geophysical survey on the property and has successfully identified multiple targets for exploration and drilling, which continues to support our theory of not only multi phases of mineralization but the relationship to structural controls. The results have been incorporated into surfacing mapping, sampling and underground and surface drilling resulting in a new theory of mineralizing events which should enhance our exploration success. Over four years past owners have only drilled approximately 9,600 meters and we are embarking on an initial 8,000-meter program to determine the true potential of the property, which is expected to take five months to complete.”

A video summary of today’s news release is available here.

Geophysical Interpretation and Survey Results

A 3-Dimensional Instantaneous Potential, (“IP”) survey covered the entire property at 50-meter line spacing and was 16 blocks in size with penetration to -500 meters minimum. The complete survey resulted in pseudo sections with 2D inversion for each line, a property plan map for chargeability and resistivity; and interpretative map with axis of anomalies and a Voxel 3-Dimensional model.

In addition, 27 kilometers of ground magnetics was completed over the property resulting in a final product consisting of a topographic plan map, total field, first derivative and reduced to the pole and 3D inversion magnetics.

A total of 11 first priority IP targets have been delineated property wide (see Figure 1 below), which are in a generalized east – west direction. Anomaly IPSM-1 located 400 meters to the east of the last surface expression of the Santa Maria Veins is defined as sub-cropping, (very shallow) and an extension of the Santa Maria veining. All other IP anomalies define new trends in the northern sector and range from shallow in depth to deep seated, +/- 100-150 meters in depth. The deeper anomalies are described as wide bodies in the areas where they intersect the secondary mineralized north – south veining. The geological team has collected 26 surface samples over all anomalies, and these have been submitted to ALS Chihuahua Laboratory for analysis.

New Theory of Mineralization

Fabled’s reinterpretation of the age and mineralizing events and structures on the Santa Maria property finds that the Santa Maria and Santa Maria dos veins are hosted in a primary generalized east – west trending rhyolite zone and mineralization consists of silver and gold only. Younger Parral formation, post mineralization, sediments overlay the vein trends to the west, east, and in the north of the property.

These sediments have been structurally stressed / sheared in a generalized north – south trend as a result of the San Rafael graben northeast of the property, a major tectonic feature that has a regional effect of the placement of mineralization. These structures not only slightly offset the east – west trending Santa Maria Veins but wide zones of hydrothermal breccias are encountered where the intersection occurs. These north – south trending structures are interfiled with calc silicate veining which surface sampling has determined they not only contain silver – gold values but also lead, zinc, and copper. This has been interpreted to be a second mineralizing event.

Structure on structure creating dialization zones consisting of hydrothermal breccias have been reported in drill hole SM18-03 which reported 43.35 meters grading 0.78 g/t Au, 232.89 g/t Ag including a section reporting 3.35 g/t Au, 1,1012.63 silver over 8.94 meters.

  • Name change to Xali Gold Corp. (pronounced “Chali”).
  • The change of name, trading symbol, CUSIP number and website is expected to take approximately two weeks

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Candente Gold Corp. (TSXV:CDG) (“Candente Gold” and/or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has closed the non-brokered Private Placement (the “Private Placement”) previously announced (November 5th, 2020) of 4,000,000 common shares (the “Shares”) at a price of $0.05 per Share, raising a total of $200,000.

The Company also advises the decision of a name change to Xali Gold Corp. (pronounced “Chali”). Xali is known as a spiritual being that is a creative genius, stands up for its beliefs, is passionate and persistent in achieving its goals.  Xali is also a popular Nahuatl (Aztecan language) name for Sand, considered as a strong foundation and transition between water and land representing the importance of water and the fertility of land. The change of name, trading symbol, CUSIP number and website is expected to take approximately two weeks, however, the Company will advise once known as the change of name is subject to the Company’s filing requirements with the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”).

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement to advance development of its near term gold production and near surface exploration opportunities while advancing drill targets on the El Oro project, its flagship asset, and for general working capital purposes. The Shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a hold period of four months and a day from the date of closing. Finder fees of $2,450 were paid.

Joanne Freeze, President and CEO, a control person of the Company, subscribed for 2,150,000 shares which is 53.75% of the Private Placement. In connection with the Private Placement, Ms. Freeze completed a cross distribution, whereby she sold 2,150,000 Shares from her holdings in pre-arranged trades (the “Cross”) over the facilities of the TSXV. Ms. Freeze has used 100% of the proceeds from the Cross to subscribe for Shares in the Private Placement. The price of the Cross was $0.05 and was in the context of the market. In addition to Ms. Freeze, there are three other subscribers whom the Company welcomes as new strategic investors, who will be instrumental in assisting us to deliver on our new growth strategy.

The Private Placement remains subject to all necessary regulatory approvals, including the final approval of the TSXV.

The issuance of Shares to Ms. Freeze pursuant to the Private Placement is considered to be a related party transaction subject to TSXV Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101. Ms. Freeze intends to rely on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 on the basis that participation in the Private Placement by Ms. Freeze will not exceed 25% of the fair market value of Candente Gold Corp’s market capitalization. The Private Placement has been approved by the board of directors of the Company.

About Candente Gold

Candente Gold has launched a comprehensive growth strategy to build a cash flowing business platform and gain access to properties with near surface exploration potential while maintaining El Oro as its flagship asset and an integral part of the overall growth strategy. The acquisition of the SDA Plant, the El Dorado historic mines and the Cocula Project signify important initial steps.

The financial benefits from Western Mexico operations and the addition of specialized personnel will translate across platforms to strengthen the Company’s efforts to explore and potentially mine areas demonstrated to contain mineralization of value. The Company is currently evaluating other properties that are complementary to the SDA plant, El Dorado and the Cocula Project.

El Oro is a district scale gold project encompassing a well-known prolific high-grade gold dominant gold-silver epithermal vein system in Mexico. The project covers 20 veins with past production and more than 57 veins in total, from which approximately 6.4 million ounces of gold and 74 million ounces of silver were reported to have been produced from just two of these veins (Ref. Mexico Geological Service Bulletin No. 37, Mining of the El Oro and Tlapujahua Districts. 1920, T. Flores*).

Modern understanding of epithermal vein systems indicates that several of the El Oro district’s veins hold excellent discovery potential, particularly below and adjacent to the historic workings of the San Rafael Vein, which was mined to an average depth of only 200 metres.

Joanne C. Freeze, P.Geo., President, CEO and Director and Matthew Melnyk, CPG., Director Operations and Director are Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101 for the projects discussed above, however, they have not been able to visit the El Dorado or Cocula Projects nor the SDA Plant recently due to COVID virus travel restrictions. The work discussed in the News Release is either historical and documented by public records or conducted by Mexican professionals with qualifications similar to those of QP’s registered in Canada. Ms. Freeze and Mr. Melnyk have reviewed and approved the contents of this release.

Candente Golds $CDG.ca Samples High Grade Gold and Silver on the Cocula Gold Project, Mexico $FMG.ca $MEX.ca $AGI.ca $DSV.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:54 AM on Thursday, October 29th, 2020
https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.agoracom.com/public/companies/logos/563973/hub/Candente_Gold_Hub_Logo.gif

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Candente Gold Corp. (TSXV:CDG) (“Candente Gold” and/or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that high grade gold and silver has been sampled on the Cocula project.

As reported in News Release dated, October 22nd, 2020, samples collected to check historical reporting confirmed grades of 5.663 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold over 6 metres and 4.322 g/t gold over 8 metres in quartz breccia bodies which we understand are typical throughout the deposit.

In addition, higher grades of 59.0 g/t gold and 729 g/t silver have been found in a selected sample over 10 centimetres (“cm”) in the hanging wall of a quartz vein-breccia structure near the portal of a collapsed adit. We understand mineralization was previously exploited from this adit on a small scale using a flotation recovery process but the Company has not found any formal production records. The mineralization in the high grade sample is described as dark grey to milky white banded quartz in vein and breccia with galena, pyrite and quartz crystals filling open spaces. A channel sample collected over 0.75 m adjacent to the selected sample and including part of the hanging wall, only returned 0.182 g/t gold and 18.9 g/t silver.   The channel sample comprised milky white and gray to dark gray quartz breccia vein with fine grained pyrite, +1% galena and trace malachite.   The Company understands that the high grades are coming from a bonanza zone for which we have no idea of the size or extent yet. Due to the nature of the high grades, the bonanza zone samples were check assayed in a second laboratory. The two laboratories used are the Alti Plano Gold Silver laboratory in Matehualas, San Luis Potosi, Mexico owned by Reyna Mining and Inspectorate Laboratory owned by Bureau Veritas who prepare their samples in Durango, Mexico and conduct sample analyses in Vancouver, Canada.

Base metal assays and multi-element ICP analyses are still pending for the rock check samples as are results from preliminary metallurgical testing.

The due diligence work is being conducted by Ing. Humberto Hernandez, Geological Engineer, member of Asociación de Ingenieros Mineros, Metalúrgistas y Geólogos de México and Ing. Gerardo Moreno, Geological Engineer and Miner, of Grupo Constructor Germo based in Durango, Mexico.

The Cocula Project area is located within the Ameca Mining District of Jalisco State which is home to Agnico Eagle’s El Barqueño Project and Endeavor Silver’s Terronera Project.

Please see News Releases No. 084 and 086 dated September 10th, and October 22nd, 2020 and http://www.candentegold.com/s/cocula.asp for further details on the Cocula Project.
