Karmin also owns the Aripuanã gold project, also in Northwestern Brazil, and the Cushuro gold project in the Alto Chicama gold district in Northern Peru. The company acquired the Cushuro project in February.


​Natural resource company Xtierra gained 33.33 percent on the TSXV last week. The Toronto-based mineral exploration and development company focuses on base and precious metals in the state of Zacatecas, Mexico. It has five projects there, including the Bilbao silver-zinc-leadcopper development project, which includes nine exploration concessions on about 3,476 acres.

The company focuses on the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral resource properties in Serbia. The company has nine exploration licenses and a concession for exploration within the Cretaceous Timok Magmatic Complex in Eastern Serbia. Among these projects is its sediment-hosted gold project, which represents a “previously unrecognized style of gold mineralization” in the Timok region. Serbia’s Cretaceous Timok Magmatic Complex stretches from Western Europe to Southeast Asia.

Gold producer Scorpio Gold also gained 20 percent last week on the TSXV. The exploration, development and production mining company operates in the United States. Its projects include the Mineral Ridge property, located about 35 miles southwest of Tonopah, Nevada; Scorpio owns 70 percent of that project. Today, the company announced additional results from its 2013 satellite deposit drilling program at the project, which “continues to meet with success, returning significant intercepts” at its floating cone pit shells modeled by Telesto Nevada for Scorpio’s Bluelite deposit. The deposit is estimated to contain 15,200 contained ounces of gold.
