Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) ("Collective" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the high resolution and deep penetrating Induced Polarization ("IP") survey over the previously announced (October 27, 2021, press release) grassroot discovery at the Pound target ("Pound") within its San Antonio project, Colombia is advancing on schedule and is expected to be completed in March 2022.

Highlights (Figures 1 and 2)

  • The primary objective of the survey is to define the size and shape of the pyrite bearing, mineralised breccia body at Pound. The target has been mapped over a strike length of 1.3 kilometres and is open in all directions .

  • Previous reconnaissance drilling from two holes returned broad intercepts as follows:

    • 710 metres at 0.53 g/t gold equivalent from surface including 133 metres at 0.92 g/t gold equivalent from 470 metre depth (SAC-8); and

    • 750 metres at 0.41 g/t gold equivalent from surface including 187 metres at 0.59 g/t gold equivalent from 60 metre depth (SAC-6).

      (Please refer to the press release dated October 27, 2021 for further details including how the AuEq calculation was estimated).
  • The IP survey will cover two blocks totalling an area of 2.4 km2 and will also include the COP and Dollar targets. Previous drilling at Dollar returned an intercept 74 metres at 0.62 g/t gold equivalent from 547 metre downhole within a porphyry hosting a stockwork of quartz-magnetite veins which can be drill tested starting at elevations of 600 metres below the previous hole from a valley floor at the base of a mountain slope.

  • The COP target has not yet been drilled and is defined by highly anomalous molybdenum (8 ppm to 108 ppm) and gold (up to 2.74 g/t) in soils in association with altered diorite porphyry and quartz veinlets.

  • The deep penetrating IP survey will generate 3D chargeability and resistivity data for minimum vertical depths of 800 metres and has been designed to search for disseminated sulphide, porphyry and breccia systems. This IP system has previously been successful in delineating large, mineralized porphyry alteration systems and high-grade veins at the Olympus target within the Guayabales project where three diamond drill rigs are currently operating with first assay results anticipated in March 2022.

"Our San Antonio project has the potential to yield multiple mineralized porphyry and breccia systems. Following on from the exciting grassroots discovery at Pound, we are focused on defining the morphology of this sulphide rich breccia body and other potential porphyry systems. Once the IP results have been interpreted and incorporated with all newly generated data, the Company will provide details on the next phase of drilling for the project in 2022," commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

Reconnaissance Drilling at the Box Target, Guayabales Project

The Company recently completed a small reconnaissance drilling program (three holes totaling 1,011 metres) at the Box target, which is located on the western portion of the Guayabales project. The Box target is hosted within multiple porphyritic diorites which intrude into carbonaceous schist and siltstone country rocks. Surface mapping, rock and soil sampling had outlined soil anomalies associated with polymetallic carbonate base-metal veins ("CBM") in diorite porphyries and at the contact with schist country rocks. Field work was followed up with a hi-resolution and deep penetrating IP survey which outlined three shallow chargeability anomalies referred to as central, west and east. Drilling tested each anomaly with a reconnaissance hole with results as follows:

  • BOC001 was drilled northwards into the central chargeability anomaly and intersected a broad sericite-pyrite zone with occasional CBM veins in hydrothermal breccia and diorite porphyry returning an intercept of 93 metres grading 0.3 g/t gold, 4 g/t silver and 20 ppm of molybdenum from 127 metres downhole. Further downhole, a CBM vein was intersected at 307 metres depth with a 1.2 metre intersection length yielding 8.7 g/t gold, 47 g/t silver, 7.1% zinc and 5.7% lead.

  • BOC002 was drilled to test the western chargeability anomaly and intersected relatively unaltered porphyritic diorite with disseminated sulphides and one quartz-carbonate vein returning 3.1 g/t gold over 70 cm from a downhole depth of 99 metres.

  • BOC003 drill tested the eastern chargeability anomaly associated with a northerly trending fault zone and intersected diorite porphyry in faulted contact with schist country rock.

  • The area North of BOC001 demonstrates the best potential for follow up exploration. BOC001 is interpreted to represent the peripheral, phyllic alteration zone (pyrite-sericite-quartz) to a gold bearing (grades of 0.5 to 2 g/t gold), fine grained, porphyry diorite located approximately 200 metres north of the hole intercept. This porphyry body is coincident with a hi magnetic anomaly and requires a follow up IP survey and drill testing.

5 Top Weekly TSX Performers: Assay Results Send Xtra-Gold Higher

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 19,030.09 early last Friday (June 24) morning. The index was on the rebound, and managed to close the week up at 19,061.98.

Looking over to the commodities sector, oil prices were on the rise by the end of the week, while gold and silver were on track for weekly declines.

"Our expectation is that prices do rise beyond September, October," Jeffrey Christian of CPM Group told the Investing News Network at this year’s Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada convention.

5 Top Weekly TSXV Performers: Gold Explorers Find Support as Commodities Prices Fall

Major markets were on course for their first weekly gain in a month last Friday (June 24), while the S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) began to claw back losses seen late Thursday (June 23).

Dipping to a five day low of 623.48 overnight, Canada’s junior index moved to 637.83 after the morning bell. It ultimately closed the period slightly higher at 647.33.

Growing recession concerns were bolstered last week after reports that Canada’s inflation rate rose to a 39 year high of 7.7 percent in May. These fears are mounting below the border as well, and have been reflected in the plunging value of copper, a base and industrial metal heavily that is correlated to economic growth.

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Global central bank gold reserves top 35,500 metric tons (MT), approximately one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. The vast majority of central bank gold holdings were acquired in the last decade, when national banks became net buyers of the yellow metal.

Central banks purchase gold for a number of reasons: to mitigate risk, to hedge against inflation and to promote economic stability. In its most recent annual survey released in June 2022, the World Gold Council (WGC) said that 61 percent of central bankers expect global gold reserves to increase over the next 12 months. Nearly three-quarters of respondents cited the precious metal’s “long-term store of value” as a guiding factor in gold purchases.

Central banks added 463 MT of gold to their vaults in 2021, signaling a significant turnaround in demand after the 255 MT decade low experienced in 2020.

Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for Goldyoutu.be

The US Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 basis points last week in its ongoing fight against inflation, amping up its efforts to tame prices and leaving market watchers wondering what's next.

Speaking just ahead of the central bank's meeting, Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management, said usually the Fed starts out hawkish and then backs off. But this time around the opposite is happening.

This is due to various factors, but US President Joe Biden's recent meeting with Fed Chair Jerome Powell is among them — in their discussion, Biden expressed that inflation is the Fed's responsibility.
