Gold Port: 2023 Gold Exploration

Gold Port (CSE:GPO, OTCQB:GPOTF), OTCQB:GPOTF) is now preparing for its upcoming drill campaign at its 100 percent owned gold asset in Guyana. The company’s Groete gold-copper project has an NI 43-101 AuCuEq resource estimate with an inferred 1.57 million ounces of gold equivalent. The asset is in close proximity to deep water and road access to support potential future production development.

Guyana consistently has a gold mining history and is one of the best places to work in South America. This mining-friendly jurisdiction allows new operations to receive permits and license projects relatively quickly to support exploration and development. Gold Port holds, through a common law agreement, three mining permits that comprise the Groete project’s 1,384-hectare area.

The upcoming drill program includes 35 targets totaling 8,102 meters, with depths ranging from 60 to 370 meters. These priority targets were chosen to confirm the continuity of the known higher-grade zone. In addition, the drill program aims to establish an indicated mineral resource estimate for the zone. Exploration upside to the east identified by surface work in 2012 will also likely be drill-tested. Gold Port designed a brand new tracked rig specifically for this program. Upon road access completion, the unit and support equipment will be moved to site to initiate the program.

Recent developments in leaching reagents may offer an alternative to cyanide leaching or grind and float recovery methods. The Company will provide further information upon completion of the vendor selection process for alternative reagents.

The Company is well funded to continue its evaluation of the Groete Gold Copper Project located in Guyana . The Project was last explored in 2012, which included a drill program that allowed the calculation of an Inferred Mineral Resource of 1.57 million gold copper equivalent ounces within 74 million tonnes, at a grade of 0.66 grams per tonne gold equivalent. A cutoff grade of 0.25 gold equivalent grams per tonne, a gold price of US$1,275 per ounce and copper price of US$3.00 per pound was used in the calculation of the Inferred Mineral Resource. Details of the Mineral Resource are contained in a National Instrument 43-101 report titled, Technical Report and Updated Mineral Resource Estimate on the Groete Gold Copper Deposit, Groete Property, Guyana , South America by P&E Mining Consultants Inc., dated April 16, 2019 , available on SEDAR and the Company website at

Brent Cook: Underinvested Mining Sector Set to Perform, What I'm Buying

Speaking at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, Brent Cook of Exploration Insights shared his thoughts on the resource sector, saying that the macro environment for metals looks positive.

"I think the realization's going to come, hopefully this year, amongst the large investors and the general public and fund managers, that this is a sector that has been underinvested in for a long time," he told the Investing News Network (INN).

"We are needing more and more metals for the electrification of the Earth, etc. The metals are going to become more expensive, and the companies that are mining them are going to start making a lot more money."

3 Things Warren Buffett Has Said About Gold (Updated 2023)

Warren Buffett has a formidable reputation as an investor — with a current net worth of nearly US$80 billion, he’s among the world’s richest people and a business role model for many.

Buffett, who runs Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A,NYSE:BRK.B), is also well known for being uninterested in gold. He’s made his stance on the yellow metal abundantly clear over the years, and it’s not positive — put simply, he doesn’t think gold fits in with his strategy of value investing, which involves picking stocks trading for less than they are worth.

Given Buffett’s aversion to gold, market watchers were understandably surprised when Berkshire Hathaway invested in Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX,NYSE:GOLD) in Q2 2020, paying around US$560 million for about 21 million shares of the major gold miner.

SKRR Exploration Inc. enters into Acquisition Agreement for the Disposition of the Watts Lake Zinc Property in Saskatchewan

SKRR Exploration Inc. enters into Acquisition Agreement for the Disposition of the Watts Lake Zinc Property in Saskatchewan

SKRR Exploration Inc. (TSXV: SKRR) (FSE: B04Q) (" SKRR " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce it has entered into a definitive arm's length acquisition agreement with Fathom Nickel Inc. (CSE: FNI) (" Fathom ") dated March 21, 2023 (the " Acquisition Agreement ") for the disposition of SKRR's 100% owned Watts Lake zinc property (the " Property "). The Property consists of 24 mineral claims comprising a total of 13,708.11 hectares and is approximately 65 km north-east of the town of La Ronge, Saskatchewan and 20km northwest of the community of Missinipe, SK .


Terms of the Acquisition Agreement

Under the terms of the Acquisition Agreement, Fathom will acquire a 100% interest in the Property by making the following cash and share payments to SKRR:

    1. an initial cash payment of C$75,000 ;

    2. 2,000,000 common shares in the capital of Fathom; and

    3. an additional cash payment of C$75,000 within 60 days of the execution of the Acquisition Agreement. The Acquisition Agreement provides for an underlying 2% net smelter return royalty in favour of Edge Geological Consulting Inc. (subject to a buy down to 1% for C$1,000,000 ).

The common shares to be issued pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities laws.

Sherman Dahl , President and CEO of SKRR, commented:

"SKRR is an asset-rich project generator, having acquired numerous high potential precious metal, and strategic base and battery metal projects, primarily focused in the province of Saskatchewan . Working with strong groups like Fathom Nickel Inc. allows SKRR to unlock hidden value within our company. Multiple occurrences of near-surface mineralization, including the historic Borys Lake lead-zinc deposit, along an extensive >14km conductive trend, make Watts Lake a very exciting property. There is not only potential for further mineralization potential but, as VMS deposits often occur in clusters, and numerous mineralized showings associated with structural conductive features on the property, there is good potential for further discoveries. Located in one of the World's top mining jurisdictions, the shallow depth, favorable geology and proximity to major infrastructure, means there is the potential to fast-track exploration and development activity."

Watts Lake Property Highlights
  • World-Class Jurisdiction: Saskatchewan is consistently ranked globally as a top mining investment jurisdiction.
  • Large Land Package in a Favorable Geological Setting: Watts Lake is a large contiguous land package consisting of 13,708 ha in the established, deposit endowed La Ronge Domain, of Saskatchewan . The Property is strategically located near important infrastructure, including within 20km of major provincial highway network.
  • Historic Borys Lake Lead-Zinc Zones: The Borys Lake Corridor is anchored by the shallow depth historic Borys Lake lead-zinc deposit, including all four known drill hole delineated zones; Mac, Main, Will A/Will B and Sam zones. The main zone was interpreted to have an approximate strike length of 975 m and widths varying from 5.3 to 19.5 m with the zinc to lead ratio being approximately 10:1. Mineralization is open along strike and at depth.
  • Strong Blue-Sky Potential: Watts Lake project area covers multiple, parallel basement conductive corridors, identified by a 2008 airborne versatile time-domain electromagnetic (VTEM) geophysical survey, including the entire approximately 14km-long Borys Lake conductive corridor, as well as significant portions of parallel corridors. The conductive corridors have numerous drill intersected and surface identified mineralized occurrences of zinc, copper, and silver as well as anomalous gold, nickel and cobalt.

See Fathom's news release dated March 22, 2023 for additional details regarding Fathom, the transaction and the Property.

Will Rhind: Fear Driving Gold, Trust in System Breaking

The US Federal Reserve has been hiking interest rates for a year now in a bid to tame inflation, and during that time experts have questioned whether its aggressive hikes may break something in the market.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares, said that time has come.

"The short answer is yes, absolutely. Bank runs are something that you really don't see often, and clearly when you have a situation where you have not just bank runs, but bank failures, that tells you that something is broken," he said.
