MacDonald Mines Exploration CEO: Developing Historic Gold and Battery Metals Project with District-scale Mineralization Potential

“At Jovan, what we’re hitting is very promising. We don’t have any assay results yet, but we’re really excited by what we see visually,” MacDonald Mines Exploration President and CEO Mia Boiridy said.

MacDonald Mines Exploration (TSXV:BMK) President and CEO Mia Boiridy sat down to discuss its 18,340 hectares SPJ gold project in Sudbury, Ontario.

In 2019 and 2020, the company’s main focus included extensive development of Scadding with 83 holes and 13,575 meters of drilling completed. This program revealed that mineralization extended beyond the deposit’s historical pits, which presents remarkable gold discovery potential. At one of the deposit’s intersections, the company saw grades of 59 g/t gold over 19 meters.

Recent work on the project’s highly prospective Jovan property revealed unique large anomalies, which the company is currently targeting.

“At Jovan, what we’re hitting is very promising. We’re seeing a lot of sulfide mineralization, which is typically what carries gold at Scadding,” Boiridy noted. “We don’t have any assay results yet, but we’re really excited by what we see visually.”

In addition to gold, the Jovan property has polymetallic showings of nickel, cobalt and silver. Jovan’s positioning only 9 kilometers (5 miles) from Scadding presents MacDonald Mines with real district-scale mineralization, which is a thrilling prospect.

2021 plans include ongoing drilling at Scadding as well as other targets away from Scadding to get a better picture of what the large SPJ Project has to offer.

Western Copper and Gold CEO: We’re Western Copper and Gold for a Good Reason

“We’ve got 21 million ounces of gold and 11 billion pounds of copper in our overall resource at Casino. Very significant from both a copper and gold perspective. So we’re Western Copper and Gold for a good reason,” shared Western Copper and Gold CEO Paul West-Sells.

Western Copper and Gold (TSX:WRN,NYSE:WRN) is currently sitting on a resource that’s composed of 21 million ounces of gold and 11 billion pounds of copper.

Western Copper and Gold CEO Paul West-Sells views this as a significant endowment for the company and its shareholders, as well as for Canada and the Yukon.

“We’ve got 21 million ounces of gold and 11 billion pounds of copper in our overall resource at Casino. Very significant from both a copper and gold perspective. So we’re Western Copper and Gold for a good reason. And that’s where the value is in the ground,” said West-Sells.

In June 2021, the company announced a positive preliminary economic assessment at its wholly owned Casino copper-gold-molybdenum deposit in the Yukon. Western Copper and Gold will conduct a feasibility study on Casino, and it is targeted to be completed by the second quarter of 2022.

“The other big push for us is to get the permitting going. We now have money in the bank, and we just hired a vice president of permitting to move the project. More importantly, we now have Rio Tinto (ASX:RIO,LSE:RIO,NYSE:RIO) as a strategic investor, which was the last piece that was really missing. This is a big project. A lot of ounces, a lot of pounds, a lot of upfront capital to get those out of the ground.”

Western Copper and Gold completed a brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $8,010,000 that will be used to fund “Canadian exploration expenses” and “flow-through mining expenditures.”

Novo Resources Executive Co-Chairman Michael Spreadborough: Well Financed to Bring Exploration Projects into Production

Novo Resources Executive Co-Chairman Michael Spreadborough said the company has a strong balance sheet to keep advancing its projects toward production.

Novo Resources (TSXV:NVO) recently announced it has intersected high-grade gold at its Talga Talga gold project and has accelerated the near-mine exploration program at its Nullagine gold project in Western Australia. Novo Resources Executive Co-Chairman Michael Spreadborough said the company has a strong balance sheet to keep advancing its projects towards production.

“We are sitting at approximately $50 million cash at the moment, (and) have a strategic investment portfolio that’s worth roughly C$150 million. Our balance sheet is very, very strong with enough horsepower to do the exploration work. We are in a very strong position to keep us moving forward,” he shared.

Novo Resources’ exploration program has been accelerated with additional funding of up to AU$2.5 million to support near-mine exploration. The amount is on top of the previously approved AU$12 million. Novo Resources is aiming to accelerate the delineation of targets in the Mosquito Creek Basin that have the potential to provide additional oxide mill feed to the Golden Eagle processing facility

“We like to play with innovation, we like to be leaders in some of the things that we’re doing. So we’re very focused on ore sorting. Innovation is a big focus in our culture. We’re putting over $15 million a year into exploration as we develop more targets to bring into production,” said Spreadborough.

“We’ve already found good gold discoveries, we’ll probably find more as we do more work. We’ve got the horsepower financially and we’ve got that ability. We’ve demonstrated now that we can take exploration projects all the way through to development and into production. We have the complete skill set. We think we’re in a good position right now to move the company forward,” he added.

Azincourt Energy CEO Alex Klenman: Applying Artificial Intelligence to Uranium Exploration in the Athabasca Basin

“Nobody’s really applying artificial intelligence into the uranium exploration in the Athabasca, and so we might be a first mover,” said Azincourt Energy CEO Alex Klenman.

Azincourt Energy (TSXV:AAZ,OTCQB:AZURF,FWB:A0U2) CEO Alex Klenman discussed the company’s pioneering initiatives to bring artificial intelligence (AI), data mining and rapid algorithm work into mining exploration.

Azincourt Energy recently entered into an agreement with FOBI AI (TSXV:FOBI) to apply its established AI and applications “to support Azincourt’s goal of making discovery and delineating a resource at its East Preston uranium project,” according to a press release.

“Nobody’s really applying AI into the uranium exploration in the Athabasca, and so we might be a first mover. We’d like to embrace new technology and see how it can make us more efficient,” said Azincourt Energy CEO Alex Klenman.

According to Klenman, the ultimate goal is to utilize technology to allow Azincourt Energy to make discoveries more quickly, with less impact on the environment and with fewer dollars spent on drill holes and exploration initiatives.

The company recently closed the final tranche of a private placement worth $8 million, which will be used to fund the development of the East Preston uranium project. The flagship East Preston project covers over 25,000 hectares in the Western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.

“We’re heading into our drill program in the winter, and we’re going to do 30 to 35 holes. We’re exceeding the entire pre-run here for four years. We have strong institutional support from funds, which allows us to get more aggressive. Our timing looks really good. We’re excited to be cashed up and doing our biggest drill program and the best market we’ve seen since 2011,” shared Azincourt Energy CEO Alex Klenman.
