Golden Independence Mining Corp. (CSE: IGLD) (OTCQB: GIDMF) (FSE: 6NN) (the "Company" or "Golden Independence") announces the acquisition by staking of the Fraser Lake copper project located in the Quesnel Trough of Central British Columbia. The project is comprised of three claim blocks totalling approximately 9,900 hectares and are located between 40 to 55 kilometres northwest of Fraser Lake, BC.

"The addition of the Fraser Lake copper project provides the Company with portfolio diversification, at a very low cost due to staking and without the typical encumbrances of royalties or work commitments," commented Jeremy Poirier, Chief Executive Officer. "This large land position within the prolific Quesnel Trough is prospective for copper porphyries of which gold and molybdenum are typically associated. We are currently reviewing the historical data on the project, including geophysical surveys completed in the late 2000's, and will provide an update on exploration plans once completed."

The exploration target is porphyry copper molybdenum associated with a series of Endako plutons intruding Cache Creek complex, carbonate, clastic and volcanic rocks. The Quest West regional lake sediment geochemistry identified areas of anomalous copper and/or molybdenum in the drainage systems from the low ridges hosting the plutons. A 2008 AeroTEM III airborne electromagnetic and magnetometer survey identified magnetic and/or electromagnetic anomalies up drainage from the anomalous geochemistry and make compelling exploration targets.

Golden Independence Announces Results from Ongoing Exploration at the Independence Project, Nevada

Golden Independence Announces Results from Ongoing Exploration at the Independence Project, Nevada

Golden Independence Mining Corp. (CSE: IGLD) (OTCQB: GIDMF) (FSE: 6NN) (the "Company") is pleased to provide an update from ongoing exploration activities at the Company's Independence Oxide Heap Leach project (the "Project") which adjoins Nevada Gold Mines' Phoenix-Fortitude mining operations in the Battle Mountain-Cortez trend of Nevada.

Since tabling a PEA for near-surface heap-leach operation at the Project, the Company has been focused on improving the metrics of the project which yielded an after-tax NPV5% of US$45M and IRR of 22%. Specifically, exploration has been focused on delineating additional near-surface oxide resources to expand the open pit and reclassify waste with mineralized material. Both of the aforementioned would have the possibility to increase the production profile, extend the mine life, and improve project economics from a cost and valuation perspective (i.e., NPV and IRR).

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.
