Green River Gold Corp. Extends the Depth at Its Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium Project and Releases Additional Assay Results from Previous Drilling

Green River Gold Corp. is pleased to update the progress at the 2022 exploration drilling program at its Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium project, located 40 kilometers from the City of Quesnel, British Columbia, in the prolific Cariboo Mining District.

Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the "Company" or "Green River") is pleased to update the progress at the 2022 exploration drilling program at its Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium project, located 40 kilometers from the City of Quesnel, British Columbia, in the prolific Cariboo Mining District.

The first phase of the 2022 exploration drilling program consists of 3 drill holes, approximately 100 meters each, using a portable Winkie drill purchased by the Company late in 2021. The first hole, DD-22-01, was drilled to a depth of 185 feet before it was discontinued for technical reasons. The plan is to re-enter that hole and drill it to greater depth before the current program is complete. The Company has shifted its efforts to drilling the second hole of the 3-hole program. Once the rest of the snow has melted and ground conditions allow, Green River will also be drilling several other known talc outcroppings using a backpack drill. That part of the program will continue throughout the year and is intended to confirm the extent of the talc occurrence and determine whether the nickel, chromium and magnesium mineralization is consistent throughout. The known talc occurrences extend over a length of 1.4 kilometers. The Company will provide regular drilling updates throughout the year.

Lahontan Drills Shallow Oxide Gold at Santa Fe: 41.1m Grading 0.54 gpt Au Starting at 52.4m

Lahontan Gold Corp. is pleased to announce drill results from the first four core drill holes exploring the Slab pit area of the Company's 19 km2 Santa Fe Project in Nevada's Walker Lane. The four drill holes, totaling 891 metres, were completed in late 2021 and targeted down-dip extensions of oxidized gold and silver mineralization below the Slab open pit in an area where historic drilling outlined significant ...

Lahontan Gold Corp. (formerly, 1246765 B.C. Ltd.) (the "Company" or "Lahontan") is pleased to announce drill results from the first four core drill holes exploring the Slab pit area of the Company's 19 km2 Santa Fe Project in Nevada's Walker Lane. The four drill holes, totaling 891 metres, were completed in late 2021 and targeted down-dip extensions of oxidized gold and silver mineralization below the Slab open pit in an area where historic drilling outlined significant potential oxide resources. Highlights include

  • 41.1 metres grading 0.54 gpt Au and 1.8 gpt Ag (0.56 gpt Au Eq) starting at only 52.4 metres down-hole, and a second vertically stacked zone of 19.5 metres grading 0.26 gpt Au and 5.6 gpt Ag (0.33 gpt Au Eq), all oxidized, in drill hole CAL21-002C.
  • 26.7 metres grading 0.44 gpt Au and 3.1 gpt Ag (0.48 gpt Au Eq) starting at only 29.4 metres down-hole, and a second, deeper zone, grading 0.21 gpt Au and 1.5 gpt Ag (0.23 gpt Au Eq), all oxidized, in drill hole CAL21-005C.

These four drill holes intercepted oxidized gold and silver mineralization throughout their entire lengths to a maximum down-hole depth of 246 metres (CAL21-002C, please see table below), confirming the presence of widespread oxide mineralization in the Slab pit area with only very minor amounts of transitional mineralization. Of critical importance, the drilling identified at least two vertically stacked zones of gold and silver mineralization; the deeper zone can help drive a deeper pit shell during resource estimation and optimization, which increases the volume of potential resources in the Slab pit area (please see long section below).

VIDEO — Mickey Fulp: I'm Bullish on Physical Gold and Farmland, Exiting Resource Juniors

"I'm bearish on the markets, (but) I'm bullish on gold — physical bullion — and farmland right now," said Mercenary Geologist Mickey Fulp.

With the general markets in turmoil, Mercenary Geologist Mickey Fulp sees few places to turn.

"It's a difficult situation," he said at the recent Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC). "I am very bearish, not necessarily on commodity prices, but on the whole resource space and the ability of companies to explore, develop, produce — there's a variety of factors against that right now."

Those include resource nationalism, socialism, anti-development initiatives and green agendas, Fulp explained. Meanwhile, mining companies are seeing energy and labor costs pushed up by inflation.

Trump and the Gold Standard

Former US President Donald Trump was keen on returning to the gold standard, but could the US really bring it back? We look at whether it’s possible.

The gold standard hasn’t been used in the US since the 1970s, but when Donald Trump was president there was some speculation that he could bring it back.

Rumors that the gold standard could be reinstated during Trump’s presidency, which ran from 2017 to 2021, centered largely on positive comments he made about the idea. Notably, the former US president suggested that it would be “wonderful” to bring back the gold standard, and a number of his advisors were of the same mind — Judy Shelton, John Allison and others also expressed support for the concept.

With Trump now out of office, is the US likely to return to the gold standard? And what would it mean if that happened? Read on to learn what the gold standard is, why it ended, what Trump said about bringing it back — and of course what could happen if it ever came into play again.
