VIDEO: Xali Gold $XGC: Leveraging Mexican Gold Assets To Develop Cash Flow for Flagship Property $FMG $MEX $AGI $DSV

Posted by AGORACOM at 4:26 PM on Tuesday, July 27th, 2021

Xali Gold ( XGC:TSXV ) has assembled a Western Mexico project portfolio of gold assets and have developed a strategy for organic growth to exploit its Flagship Gold Project El Oro, a prolific high-grade gold-silver epithermal vein system.

Xali has acquired gold and silver projects with near surface exploration potential & near-term production potential:

El Dorado Gold-Silver Project:

Rights to the El Dorado gold and silver historic mines was the initial step in this strategy, providing Xali the right to explore and produce gold, silver and other metals for life of mine.

Cocula Gold Project: profit-sharing agreement

  • Near term, low cost production potential by leaching and/or flotation
  • Retain 70% of profits
  • Recent drill targets Identified

Acquisition of the “SDA” Plant:

The SDA Mill is a fully operational flotation plant which also includes a precious metals leach circuit – Merrill Crowe system and associated assets, licenses and agreements, suitable for treating high grade gold and silver mineralization.

These assets are being positioned to create cash flow to develop Flagship El Oro Gold District where the primary focus is the past producing San Rafael Vein; 2.4km strike of high-grade Epithermal veins.

The project covers 20 veins with past production and more than 57 veins in total and 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. Historical Average grades: 10-12 g/t gold & 120-160 g/t silver

  • Xali has identified 31 exploration targets

Flooding in one section of the San Rafael vein in 1929 resulted in the other two sections flooding and work ceasing abruptly and unexpectedly. El Oro was not mined out.
The financial benefits from Western Mexico operations will translate across platforms to strengthen the Company’s efforts to explore and potentially mine areas demonstrated to contain mineralization of value

CLIENT FEATURE: Beauce Gold $BGF – The SmallCap Gold Company Poised to Make a Placer to Hard Rock Discovery $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $

Posted by AGORACOM at 3:15 PM on Tuesday, June 1st, 2021

Beauce Gold Fields (BGF: TSXV) is going to discover where the gold from Canada’s first historical placer gold rush came from.

Beauce is very close to locating the hard rock source that created Canada’s first gold rush. The area Beauce controls produced the largest gold nuggets in Canadian mining history (50oz to 71oz) and if these nuggets were to be found today each would be worth over $100,000 at today’s gold price. Beauce controls 100% of the 6km trend where the first gold rush in Canada occurred and is very close to finding the source of Canadas first gold rush through drilling in 2021.

The presence of alluvial (surface) gold is a great indicator for a modern exploration company to search for the source. It is an indication of a large gold source close by and Beauce has proven this with a Paleoplacer Resource that is one of the largest un-mined Paleoplacer deposits in North America.

If successful Beauce will be able to prove a major discovery and the lode source for all surface gold ever found at the Beauce Gold Fields project area, while potentially developing an increasingly economic paleoplacer surface deposit.

3 Reason Why Beauce is Going is to Find The Hard Rock Source of Canada’s First Gold Rush

1.    Multiple Peers Have Already Proven The Exploration Model Works

After decades of being overlooked, recent hard rock gold discoveries in the Yukon’s placer fields has led to a modern gold rush with major gold companies such as Goldcorp, Kinross, Barrick & Newmont investing hundreds of millions in Yukon juniors. Osisko Gold Royalties has invested $33 million in Barkerville alone.  An easy peer review demonstrates the unexplored value that is a soon to be attraction to investors looking to capitalize on a proven exploration model, in an area without competition from peers that Beauce completely controls. An area that is waiting for a discovery to made.

Other companies have been very successful in leading the way for Beauce to demonstrate that placer gold has to come from a source, a source that is often superior to that which has already been found on surface.

2.    The Project Area Has Seen No Modern Drilling For A Hard Rock Source.

Beauce controls the entire area, a 6 km long gold anomaly and fault zone

The project area hosts a six-kilometer-long unconsolidated gold-bearing sedimentary unit.  There is gold in saprolite that indicates a close proximity to a bedrock source of gold along with the recent discovery of a fault underneath the historical gold placers, providing possible further exploration discoveries. All the signs point to a future drill program taking place.

Gold nuggets, geology, fault, angular gold – all point to finding the lode source (where it all came from)

Beauce controls an area that has never been systematically drilled for the hard rock source. Investors in 2021 are eagerly anticipating a drill announcement.

3.     Beauce Already Has A Paleo Placer Gold Resource

Total gold potential ranges between 61,000 ounces to 366,000 ounces and is documented through the companies Beauce Paleo placer Project Business Model for Placer Mining (2015).

The Company has calculated a Gold Exploration Target for the entire historical placer channel ranges between 61,000 ounces (2,200,000 m3 @ 0.87g Au/m3) and 366,000 ounces* (2,200,000 m3 @ 5.22 g Au/m3).

If you think this is insignificant at first glance, the 2015 report pegs the all-in cost at US$630/oz at $1250 gold. Today gold is at $1900. The increase in the price of gold vastly improves the economic potential and development of the Beauce Paleoplacer deposit.

The cost to build the mine is only $8 million. This based of off a 2015 gold price of $1250 and an 8-year mine life that upon ccommencement of full-scale production the annual gold output should be between 8,000 oz. (base case) and 24,000 oz. This can generate annual cash flow between $6.5M (base case) and $25 Million. The operation is capable of producing around 40,000 oz per year within 4 years of commencing production.

At $1900 dollar gold, a modest 4000 ounces produced increases the revenue to $7.6 million from $6.5. At 24,000oz’s of production the revenue jumps to $45million.  Enough to build a company, and certainly enough to fund exploring for where it all came from.

CLIENT FEATURE: Tajiri Resources $ A New Era of Gold Discovery $ $ $ $

Posted by AGORACOM at 11:15 AM on Tuesday, June 1st, 2021
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Tajiri-Blog-1.png

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 12m@ 0.6g/t including 3m @ 1.0g/t and 13m@ 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.

VIDEO – Helium is BIG Business. Royal Helium $ May Have Just Made One of The Largest Discoveries in Saskatchewan History $ $APD $AHELF

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:22 PM on Thursday, May 13th, 2021

Helium is a high tech gas, with many uses in multiple high tech applications: MRI magnets, Fibre optic cables for high speed internet, Airbags, hard drives, chips in our electronics, cleaning rocket fuel tanks. The list is varied and demand is inelastic. They don’t function without Helium. 

This is where Royal Helium comes into play. Having drilled 3 wells in an area in Saskatchewan that had no prior Helium recognition, Royal has hit on all 3 and are already in planning stage to generate revenue from the 1st well. They have made a discovery. 

Royal Helium has aims to deliver a minimum of 1 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of total inert gas into the market, and this discovery clearly demonstrates they are on their way. With economic concentrations ranging from 0.33% to 0.94%, Royal will commence production planning shortly on Climax-1, with the intent of producing & monetizing the helium, CO2, and nitrogen gas streams discovered 

Sit back and enjoy this #SmallCap discovery Andrew Davidson, CEO & Chairman of Royal Helium.

VIDEO – Royal Helium $ One Step Closer to Primary Helium Production After Drilling Multiple Zones of Economic Helium in Saskatchewan $ $APD $AHELF

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:18 PM on Thursday, April 15th, 2021

If you think about balloons / blimps when thinking about Helium uses, we wouldn’t blame you … but you’d also be missing out on a much much bigger picture.

Looking beyond just balloons, Helium is a high tech gas, with many uses in rocket engines, semiconductors, electronics, and health care. These sectors pressure the demand for helium in concert, making it a gas in very short supply, causing the price to rise.

Saskatchewan is one of the only places on earth with current and past production of primary Helium. This is where Royal Helium comes into play as they are one of the largest land holders searching for Helium and recently announced that testing identified zones that range in thickness from five meters to in excess of 30 meters. These zones returned levels ranging from 0.33% to 0.94%, demonstrating the commercial potential of the Climax project

Worldwide usable Helium is in short supply as demand is increasing, making it a high-priced commodity, take a seat and discover why Royal Helium is the next SmallCap Stock to discover.

Royal Helium $ Announces That Initial Testing Confirms Economic Helium Concentrations at Climax $ $APD $AHELF

Posted by AGORACOM at 8:47 AM on Tuesday, April 6th, 2021

Royal Helium Ltd. (“Royal” or the “Company”) (TSXV: RHC) is pleased to announce that initial gas sample test results have returned elevated and economic levels of helium concentration from multiple formations at the Climax helium project, with tests returning levels ranging from 0.33% to 0.94% from the Deadwood, Souris River and Duperow formations. The company will now commence long term production testing of the most prospective zones to confirm flow rates and ultimately resource size. 

The high graded production zones that are being tested range in thickness from five meters to in excess of 30 meters, with the ability to expand to even larger intersections. While these results are preliminary in nature and require additional confirmation, they do confirm the presence of economic helium grades on the Climax project, along with indicating that nitrogen will be the primary gas drive, though elevated levels of carbon dioxide are also present in certain tests. To date, testing has been focused on testing helium concentrations across the prospective zones with the highest level of helium detected during the drilling process. This initial concentration testing at Climax is expected to be completed over the next 10 days, following which the Royal will begin full flow testing and analysis which is expected to take an additional 30- 40 days.

Andrew Davidson, President and CEO of Royal comments “We are pleased with these initial results on our Climax helium project. Helium detection during drilling identified multiple zones of elevated helium in all three of the wells and follow-up completions testing confirmed economic helium concentrations. We look forward to the full flow testing results across all zones of interest in each of the three wells to confirm resource size and project commerciality. The fact that we have identified elevated and economic helium concentrations across significant pay zones as large as 30 meters speaks to the potential of the Climax Project.”
