Tajiri Resources Corp. (TAJ.V) is exploring for world class gold deposits in Guyana

If you like companies whose management has a track record of gold discoveries, Tajiri is your company. Having already discovered around 20 million ounces through discoveries in Burkina Faso and…Guyana, where a high percentage of ythe ounces have been discovered.. Right where Tajiri is situated. Astute management acquired The Gargantuan and The Epeius-Kaburi Project where each show promise for a gold discovery.

The aptly named Gargantuan project was acquired due to its huge Artisanal mining footprint. Small gold miners have worked for the free, easy gold for over a hundred years. No one has found the source for all this gold.

Tajiri plans on changing that.

The Epeius-Kaburi Project is within a corridor of highly prospective ground adjacent to Troy’s Karouni Mine (discovered by Tajiri founder Dominic O’Sullivan) and put into production in 2017. They also have the Ohio Creek discovery that borders the Tajiri project area. Tajiri has many drill targets planned adjacent to significant drill intercepts along the property border with Troy, who have drilled holes as close as 5 meters from the property line.

Tajiri is a fundamentally strong exploration company with 2 properties in Guyana that could each wield major discoveries, supported by a management team that have a track record of discovering gold in Guyana.

3 Reason Why Tajiri is the next SmallCap to Discover

  1. Artisanal Mining Point Toward Larger Discovery Potential

The best place to find a large gold source is to look where its already been found. In this case the human footprint surrounding the gargantuan deposit has been around for over 100 years, believed to go as far back as 1860 and still produces a cumulative 35,000 ounces from small, independent miners. Tajiri is attempting to use this history to help in guiding where the source of the gold has come from. Until recently few had put the effort into finding where it has all come from, mostly due to the low hanging fruit effect. The gold is easy to find and there is a long history of it. Tajiri aims to find the source.

This is a classic picture analogy of a thousand words:

The amount of human activity required to alter the above paleochannel (where mother nature placed the gold through erosion) of the Mahdia River is staggering. Tajiri’s Gargantuan Project is interpreted to host the source of the gold produced from the artisanal workings in this picture and lies at an elevation that is above the extensive alluvial workings on the Mahdia River.

2. Management Has Discovery Record of 20Moz Gold in Guyana, West Africa and Australia

Management has astutely been cornering 2 extremely promising land packages in Guyana that may lead to Tajiri founder Dominic O’Sullivan’s next 20 million ounces.  Dominic owns a large % of Tajiri and lives in Guyana, which plays a huge role in supporting the fundamental well-being of the company and has led to astute relationships that assisted in acquiring valuable and strategic land, at Gargantuan project as well as Epieus.  A new era of gold exploration has begun for savvy investors

Through Dominic, management has invested around $2,400,000 in Tajiri since 2016 setting the stage for today by acquiring strategic land and preparing it for exploration success. The focus for the last four years has been on establishing a strong foundation for the company through acquisitions. It is early days in the gold bull and Dominic is here to stay as Tajiri is just getting started.

3. The Gargantuan and The Epeius-Kaburi Projects are Discovery Ready

The Gargantuan and Epeius –Kaburi projects set the stage for a new era in exploration, with both projects only requiring drilling to prove the value of the gold in the ground.

Gargantuan is prized for its Artisanal footprint, perhaps 4 -10 times larger than those associated with other Guiana Shield gold deposits in the 1 –10 Million-ounce range. The Gargantuan artisanal footprint is equaled by only one other, the Las Cristinas/Brisas deposit in Venezuela and that is 45 million ounces north of Gargantuan. Tajiri is clearly in the right exploration neighborhood. Guyana is host to multiple gold discoveries.

Tajiri’s Gargantuan property covers 6 km of a larger 12 km mineralized footprint that borders Goldsource on both sides of the trend where they have made recent discoveries through drilling. Thanks to Goldsource, Tajiri knows that the gold bearing rock runs north south and trends onto their sides of Gargantuan with only drilling required to confirm the scale of gold in the rock.                                           

3a. Epeius-Kaburi Project

 Troy Resources is drilling on multiple areas along the company’s Epeius Kaburi project border. Troy (ASX: TRY) is a small to midsize gold producer with a history of developing and operating mines. In July 2013 the Company acquired Azimuth Resources Limited which had discovered and delineated the Karouni Project in Guyana. The Company fast tracked development of Karouni with first gold production with 2017 being the first full year of production.

Why is this important? Dominic sold Azimuth that held the Karouni project to Troy.  Tajiri now owns some of the most compelling exploration ground around the Karouni Mine and Troys property.

Tajiri has an excellent chance to be able to define satellite deposits within trucking distance of Troy’s mill where they are quickly running out of feed to run through it. Troy is looking for their own feed source, but due to their proximity to Tajiri’s border where they are drilling in many areas, it appears that Tajiri may have something that Troy is looking for. Tajiri has the potential to discover ounces next to an operating mine as trenching is investigating an area broadly on strike from ASX listed Troy Resource’s Limited’s Goldstar Prospect located on the southern boundary of the Project.

The area of investigation is resolving into three zones of mineralization:

A high-grade zone: The Magic Crack Zone (or the “MCZ”) which is associated with the contact of variably graphitic sediments and mafic volcanics where trenching to date has returned 2m @ 61.8 g/t Au, 1m @ 16.2g/t Au, 2m @ 9.2 Au,  2m @ 9.6g/t Au, 1m @ 4.2g/t Au and 6m @ 3.5g/t including 2m @ 8.0g/t Au over a strike length of 500m

    A low-grade zone: The Pretty Ordinary Zone (or the “POZ”) which is associated with a series of small felsic and microdioritic/doleritic intrusives that presents as zones 2- 20m wide variably grading between 0.1 and 0.8g/t Au with rare values >1.0g/t, along with two better intersections near the MCZ of 12m @ 2.8g/t and 9m @ 0.9g/t including 5m @ 1.5g/t.  This mineralization is associated with flat to shallow dipping quartz vein sets or in the better mineralized intervals with stockwork veining in or at the margins of the intrusive.  Thus, the POZ may show considerable vertical grade variation related to density of horizontal vein sets and will require drill testing.

The newly discovered on strike extensions of Troy Resources Goldstar Prospect: The Goldstar Extended Zone (or the “GETZ”) which was intersected in Trench 13 and returned [email protected] 0.6g/t including 3m @ 1.0g/t and [email protected] 0.5g/t including 6m @ 1.0g/t Au.    These intersections are located 880m to the northwest of and directly on strike from Goldstar where Troy has now commenced trial mining. The two zones are separated by approximately 35m across strike.   Investigation of the strike continuity between Goldstar and the GEEZ will require drilling as the entirety of the strike of the GETZ between Trench 13 and Goldstar is covered by alluvium most of which has been heavily worked by artisanal miners.

Tajiri is an excellent company run by management that knows how to discover and define gold ounces for the benefit of the shareholder. It is in the company’s best interest as Dominic has a track record of discovery, and big ownership in the projects he supports.

Shareholders are in excellent hands leading them into a new era of exploration in Guyana.

CLIENT FEATURE: Arctic Star $ADD $ASDZF Discovers 4 Kimberlites & Alters the Way Diamonds are Discovered $RIO $DIAM $NAR $MPVD

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 4:16 PM on Tuesday, May 18th, 2021

Arctic Star Exploration (ADD:TSXV / ASDZF:OTCQB ) is in the diamond finding business.

Arctic Star has spent years building up to the moment where it could say it made a discovery. Now it can. Four times over, and potentially a whole field of Kimberlites that may contain diamonds. And they have done this by merely looking where no one had considered previously.

The spring 2021 exploration program on the Diagras project, Lac de Gras district, NWT. has yielded 4 Kimberlite discoveries, the latest named Cedar, and it was found like the others; drilling a distinct EM anomaly.

This is the real secret of Arctic Star. They havet tremendous potential to revolutionize the way in which Diamonds are discovered – and become a pioneer in the exploration industry – by finding diamonds in a place where no previous explorer thought to do so. Now more than just a wild theory, Arctic Star has the team to back it up to continue the discovery process.

Here are the 3 things you need to know

1. World Class Diamond Finders

Arctic Star exploration has a highly experienced diamond exploration team previously responsible for numerous world class diamond mine discoveries.  The team is led by Buddy Doyle who originally discovered Diavik Mine, Canada’s largest diamond mine in terms of carat production. Diavik’s exceptional grades make it one of the most valuable diamond mines in the world.  Diavik is located in the Northwest Territories of Canada, where Arctic Star has 2 of their diamond properties.

Few geologists have seen 2 projects from discovery through to decision to mine. Mr. Doyle is recognized by his peers in the exploration industry as an authority on diamond exploration and kimberlite geology, and has authored/co-authored numerous papers on these subjects. He was awarded the 2007 Hugo Dummitt Award for excellence in Diamond exploration.

Roy Spencer – If that wasn’t enough, the geologist who discovered the multi-billion-dollar Grib Diamond Mine in Russia (see above). which is just 450 KMs away from Arctic Star’s project in Finland, has now joined Arctic’s Board of Directors!  Clearly, the Arctic Star team has the credibility necessary to put forth a new thesis on how to find diamonds. 

 2. Brand New Exploration Model To Find Diamonds 

In order to find diamonds, you need to first find Kimberlites. What are Kimberlites? Essentially, they are the rocks which contain diamonds. These kimberlite rocks are found underground in vertical structures known as kimberlite pipes. To illustrate in simple terms, see this basic image of a kimberlite pipe with kimberlite rocks inside of it.  Arctic has to date, found 4 of these and plan on testing each kimberlite found for diamonds.

Kimberlite pipes are the biggest source of diamonds today. When exploration companies go looking for kimberlites, the industry standard for finding them is to look for magnetic signatures. This is done by taking a magnetic survey from the air and/or ground. with a device called a magnetometer.  Now, most of you won’t understand what you are looking at – but here is an example of one of the company’s magnetic surveys on its Canadian Diagras property.

The most important thing to understand is that the industry looks for magnetic signatures ….. but Buddy Doyle and the accomplished Arctic Star team have developed a NON MAGNETIC THESIS.  They believe they will find economic diamonds by locating Kimberlite that do not have a magnetic signature where previous explores sought not to look. Arctic in a sense is exploring for diamonds the opposite way the industry traditionally does. Arctic acquired property big mining company’s dropped, because they looked at them one way. Arctic is looking differently and success is occurring quickly for this small, yet accomplished exploration outfit. There are already multiple drill ready targets in 2 countries using this new way of looking for diamonds; and proven correct in one; Finland will be next to prove without a doubt Arctic HAS discovered a new way of finding diamonds.

Arctic offers multiple opportunities in 2 countries to turn the Diamond Industry on notice with a discovery.

3. Arctic Star Has Two Diamond Projects Ready To Verify Its Non-Magnetic Theory

Arctic has 2 diamond projects on which to verify its theory: Diagras in Northwest Territories of Canada and Timantti in Finland, where early exploration searching for Non-Magnetic signatures has already yielded multiple new diamond targets

A.  Diagras is next to Diavik (Canada’s largest diamond mine) and has already proven Buddy’s Theory correct with 4 kimberlite discoveries to date, with plans to drill more.

B. Timantti in Finland has 3 separate target areas and 6 targets altogether identified through non-magnetic signatures as a means to find diamonds and further excel Buddy’s theory, it is the company’s goal to drill test in 2021

As  Buddy Doyle and the Arctic Star team are proven correct, it will create a new discovery process for understanding how diamonds are brought to surface in areas previous explorers cared not to look. Arctic Star has the potential to create multiple discoveries and copycat companies trying to duplicate their success.

However, there is only one Buddy Doyle and Roy Spencer, which is why Arctic Star is the one Diamond Exploration Company every investor should be aware of.

VIDEO: Beauce Gold $BGF – Drilling in 2021 To Locate Hard Rock Source of Canada’s First Gold Rush $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:09 PM on Sunday, May 16th, 2021

This is is she summer where Beauce could prove through drilling it has located the hardrock source of Canada’s 1st gold-rush, one that pre-dates the Yukon and responsible for 2 of the largest nuggets found in Canada.

If they are successful they may be on to a major discovery.

What is surprising is that no one ever thought to explore the iconic historical placer deposit this way previously, even though it has been well known for 150 years. Beauce believes it has unlocked the geological puzzle that supported commercial placer production without ever understanding where the gold came from.

The project area has been exploited, but never systematically explored. Beauce has diligently carried out work over the years leading to this moment. With the first reported discovery of multiple gold bearing bedrock structures, Beauce believes they have found the likely source of the placer gold nuggets that supported the historic gold rush.

President & CEO of Beauce Gold ( BGF:TSXV ) Patrick Levasseur speaks to the importance of their recent discovery and what the future holds for this exciting SmallCap gold project.

St Georges is advancing 2 projects in Quebec focused on Batttery Metals ( Nickel, Cobalt, Palladium). SX also owns all the active mineral exploration licenses in Iceland with a focus on Gold & Geothermal power, has 19M in cash & investments ( Iconic, Zeus ThreeD, Altair Int. ) and recently created a subsidiary focused solely on the recycling of EV batteries to recover valuable elements. It’s called EVSX.

It is no wonder insiders own close to 17%

It has everything to do with metals. SX is embarking on a very large program that is going to have them drilling for Battery & Platinum Group Metals as they search Quebec for an economic discovery. The Julie Nickel project is going to be drilled this year and probably into next, supplying the market and investors with steady stream of information as they track down a discovery. The Manicouagan Palladium project, also in Quebec, will see enough drilling to develop a Maiden NI 43-101 resource.

VIDEO – Manitou Gold $ Triples Drill Program to 30K Meters In Search of Billion Dollar Gold Discovery $ $ $ $

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:03 PM on Thursday, May 13th, 2021

In search of Canada’s next gold discovery, Manitou Gold MTU:TSXV) sees billion dollar deposit potential on their Goudreau project in Northern Ontario. Specifically, the area known as the The Baltimore Deformation Zone ( think Destor -Porcupine fault and and Gold camp it has become), and you see why management believes they have multiple shots at finding a billion dollar deposit. The Baltimore Zone has a 10 km trend that has never been systematically explored, it is going to take allot of drilling and Manitou is prepared; having just tripled their program to 30, 000 meters, for now.

If that isn’t enough to garner your attention, Manitou isn’t doing it alone. Supported by 2 majors in Alamos (AGI) and O3 Mining (OIII ) who are providing Board representation, treasury support and technical guidance. Manitou is very close to making a discovery of importance much quicker than most market watchers may realize, until now.

Lastly, Manitou isn’t alone in the area. They are surrounded by Majors, one who also happens to be Alamos, operator of the high grade Island Gold Mine and Manitou partner. Argonaut Gold (AR) are preparing for production in 2023.

Richard Murphy CEO sits down to explain why Manitou is the next Smallcap stock.

Arctic Star $ADD $ASDZF Discovers Kimberlite First Hole of its Drill Program Between Ekati and Diavik Diamond Mines $RIO $ $ $

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 1:33 PM on Friday, April 16th, 2021
Arctic star logo
  • New Kimberlite discovered, named the Birch Kimberlite
  • Discovered by targeting an EM and gravity anomaly 
  • Proof of exploration concept, company confident of more discoveries
  • The Birch Kimberlite is situated between Ekati and Diavik, both operating diamond mines.

Arctic Star Exploration Corp. (“Arctic Star” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ADD) (Frankfurt:82A2) (WKN:A2DFY5) (OTC:ASDZF) is pleased to announce that it has made a new discovery on the Diagras project in the Lac de Gras kimberlite field, Northwest Territory. 380km north of Yellowknife. The discovery has been named the Birch Kimberlite.

It was discovered by drilling a vertical hole into a EM and gravity anomaly. The anomaly also occupies a distinct gap in an otherwise continuous Mackenzie diabase dyke in the magnetic data. 

Kimberlite was discovered after drilling 28m through 11m of water and 17m of overburden (glacial till). The drill exited the kimberlite at 71m. A second hole from the same drill setup is underway to obtain more kimberlite for caustic fusion.

The drill collar is 220m SE of the known Black Spruce kimberlite discovered in the 1990s. The Black Spruce kimberlite was discovered by drilling a discrete magnetic low. In contrast, the Birch kimberlite has no magnetic signature.

Buddy Doyle VP Exploration of Arctic said, “We are all elated to strike kimberlite so early in our 2021 exploration program. It proves our exploration concept, we expect more discoveries as we proceed.”

Mr. Doyle continued, “After completing the current drill hole we will move from the Birch discovery to test other similar targets. The priority is to make as many discoveries as we can before the ice melts. Material from each discovery will be sent for caustic fusion. We will return to those kimberlites with the highest micro-diamond counts and give them further attention.”

The Diagras project is a Joint Venture with Margaret Lake Diamonds Inc. Arctic is the manager and operator of this joint venture.

Fabled has been very busy positioning the company for future growth as an expanded drill program at the 100% controlled Santa Maria Project in Mexico was just announced, as well as consolidating its Northern B.C. copper assets in order to coordinate a 2021 exploration program.

The mining friendly jurisdiction of Parral has produced over 250M oz silver.  Moreover, multiple major operators are in the vicinity (Grupo Mexico borders the property), and three toll mills are within a 20 km distance.

This is where Fabled’s project comes into play. Santa Maria is a high grade underground mine with a rich mining history and a Silver Equivalent 43-101 with 3.2million ounces Indicated and 1.1m inferred.

Surprisingly, Santa Maria has never been systematically explored with modern methods, until now.   Armed with recent drill success from the first holes ( 10 Ounces of Silver over 6m ) Fabled is increasing their program from 8000 to a minimum of 9200m to drill from underground to firm up the known resource, and for “Blue Sky drilling”  to explore the numerous anomalies unexplored on the property capable of demonstrating discovery potential.

CEO Peter Hawley, Fabled’s CEO breaks down the multiple events impacting shareholders.

Fabled Silver Gold Corp. (“Fabled” or the “Company”) (TSXV:FCO)(OTCQB:FBSGF)(FSE:7NQ) is pleased to announce that it has increased the on-going 8,000 meter drill program to a minimum of 9,200 the “Santa Maria” Property in Parral, Mexico.

The extra 1,200 meter drill program has been awarded to Maza Drilling who is currently performing the surface drilling and has underground diamond drilling machines capable of drilling HQ size, (2.5 inches) drill core.

This program will be focused underground to delineate the Santa Maria Central Structure with multi underground drill stations being prepared, see Figure 1.

Peter J. Hawley, CEO and President, states, “As we advance the surface drill program and compile these findings into our data base and remodel the mineralized bodies with respect to orientation of structure, width, grade and predictability we are now ready to start at the same time to delineate the central sector of the Santa Maria structure. This cost-effective measure allows us, from underground, to drill with a second machine and determine the true width to the hanging wall and foot wall of the structure and also begin to infill drill the resource area to increase the confidence level of the various resource categories.”
