Endurance Gold Corporation (TSXV: EDG) (OTC Pink: ENDGF) (FSE: 3EG) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired an option to earn a 100% ownership in the former Minto Gold Mine, Olympic and Kelvin gold prospects contained within a parcel of crown grants and mineral claims (the "Olympic Claims"). The Olympic Claims are located immediately adjoining and contiguous with the Company's previously owned Reliance Gold Property (the "Reliance Property") in southern British Columbia. The enlarged road-accessible Reliance Property, including the Olympic Claims, is located 4 kilometers ("km") east of the village of Gold Bridge, and 10 km north of the historic Bralorne-Pioneer Gold Mining Camp which has produced over 4 million ounces of gold.

Highlights of the transaction include:

  • More than doubles the size of the Reliance Property and adds a portfolio of relatively under-explored orogenic gold prospects that have not been evaluated with modern exploration methods.
  • Delivers additional excellent exploration potential without distracting from the Company's priority in advancing the Eagle Area discoveries along the Royal Shear Trend on the Reliance Property.
  • Offers the owner of the Olympic Claims the opportunity to unlock unrealized value of the Olympic Claims, to participate in potential future exploration success at the combined Reliance Property, and an option to equity fund any success at a fixed price.
  • Acquisition of 100% ownership with the option for the Company to purchase the entire retained royalty.
  • The Olympic Claims and the Reliance Property location map is attached below and on the Company website.

The Olympic Claims are owned by Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd. ("Avino") and are located on the north and south shores of BC Hydro's Carpenter Lake Reservoir in the Bridge River Valley, east of the Royal Shear trend and the Company's current drilling focus. The year-round road-accessible acquisition increases the size of the Reliance Property to approximately 2,475 hectares, more than doubling the mineral rights controlled by the Company.

The Olympic Claims are underlain by "epizonal" orogenic-type gold targets that include the former producing Minto Mine that has produced 17,500 ounces of gold at an average grade of 6.3 grams per tonne ("gpt") gold prior to World War II. In addition, there are eleven historic government-documented mineral occurrences on the Olympic Claims which include the Minto North, Dauntless, Kelvin and Olympic gold prospects, many of which have also been explored with small underground workings prior to World War II. These prospects are associated with regional-scale structural deformation and/or iron carbonate alteration with analogies to the recent discoveries by the Company at the Eagle and Imperial zones, but on sub-parallel regional structures.

As examples of the gold potential of the Olympic Claims, in 2005 Avino reported 14.76 gpt gold over 9.0 metres ("m") (estimated true width of 4.5 m) from chip samples in trenching on the Minto North target. At the Olympic Target, 1988 drilling reportedly intersected 8.2 gpt gold over 3.48 m. As part of the Option, the Company intends to initiate an early-stage 2022 exploration program of systematic biogeochemical and soil sampling to help prioritize targets for future work.

Under the terms of the letter agreement with Avino, the Company can earn a 100% interest in the Olympic Claims for:

  • A total cash consideration in the aggregate amount of $100,000;
  • the allotment and issuance of up to a total of 1,500,000 common shares ('Shares') of the Company; and
  • exploration expenditures in the aggregate amount of $300,000.
  • all to be incurred by December 31, 2024.

On vesting its ownership interest, the Olympic Claims will be subject to a 2% net smelter return royalty ("NSR"), of which 1% NSR can be purchased by the Company for $750,000 and the remaining balance of the NSR can be purchased for $1,000,000.

As part of the final requirement to earn its interest, the Company agreed to grant to Avino 750,000 share purchase warrants ("Warrants") by December 31, 2024 that offer Avino the option to purchase additional shares in the Company for a period of three years from the date of issuance. The exercise price of the Warrants will be set at a 25% premium to the 20-day VWAP share price at the issuance date. During the Option, if the Company is successful in defining a compliant mineral resource of at least 500,000 gold-equivalent ounces on the Olympic Claims then the Company will be obliged to pay Avino a $1,000,000 discovery bonus.

The Option agreement is subject to the TSX Venture Exchange acceptance, and any Shares or Warrants to be issued will be subject to a four-month hold period on issuance as per the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Endurance Gold Corporation is a company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of highly prospective North American mineral properties with the potential to develop world-class deposits.

Endurance Commences Drilling Program at the Reliance Gold Property, B.C.

Endurance Gold Corporation (TSXV: EDG) (OTC Pink: ENDGF) (FSE: 3EG) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the Reliance Gold Property (the "Property") in southern British Columbia with the first drill rig arriving on April 20. A second rig is anticipated to commence in about five weeks. The road accessible Property is located 4 kilometres ("km") east of the village of Gold Bridge, and 10 km north of the historic Bralorne-Pioneer Gold Mining Camp which has produced over 4 million ounces of gold.

The planned 2022 program consists of reverse circulation ("RC") and diamond drilling designed to expand the 2021 drill discovery at Eagle South which returned 15.70 grams per tonnes ("gpt") goldover 24.8 metres ("m") at shallow depth in DDH21-020 (reported January 12, 2022),and at the Eagle Zone which returned 8.62 gpt gold over 24.4 m from DDH21-006 (reported December 29, 2021). At the Eagle Zone, recent drilling results by the Company have defined a near-surface, shallow dipping zone of 250 m by 150 m in size with a weighted average grade of 5.13 gpt gold and average estimated true width of 11.2 m. The Eagle mineralized zones continue to be open to the southeast and to depth. Soil sampling, biogeochemical sampling, and surface grab samples of up to 21.2 gpt gold (reported January 5, 2022) indicate the potential to expand the combined Eagle mineralized zones to a minimum 400 m strike length. Channel sampling of these new surface prospects discovered in November 2021 will be completed in the next few weeks.

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. (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.

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

Mickey Fulp VRIC 2022youtu.be

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

Trump and the Gold Standard

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.

5 Top Weekly TSXV Performers: Tombill Mines Leads Gold Explorers Up

On the commodities side, values for West Texas Intermediate crude oil topped US$114 a barrel last Monday (May 16), while Brent crude touched US$115. Both types had consolidated mildly by Friday to hold in the US$112 range.
