Gold

Moneta Gold Inc. (TSX: ME) (OTCQX: MEAUF) (XETRA: MOP) ("Moneta") is pleased to announce partial assay results from twelve (12) drill holes at Windjammer Central, from the Golden Highway area of the Tower Gold project, located 100 kilometres ("km") east of Timmins, Ontario. The drilling is part of the 20202021 72,500 metre ("m") program in 130 drill holes designed to test extensions of the current mineral resource estimate of 4.0 million ("M") ounces indicated gold and 4.4M ounces inferred gold (see February 24, 2021 press release) on the Tower Gold project. Additional holes and assays from this drill program remain pending.

This drilling successfully intersected gold mineralization over a strike length of 1,500 m and a width of 300 m to the north of the Windjammer South open pit gold resource within the Windjammer Central area. Today's results confirm significant extensions of gold mineralization to the current gold resource at Windjammer South in an area with no historical resources.

Highlights from the drilling include:

  • MGH21-244 intersected 162.65 m @ 0.64 grams per tonne "g/t" gold "Au", including 30.00 m @ 0.91 g/t Au, 6.00 m @ 1.58 g/t Au, and 3.00 m @ 2.19 g/t Au
  • MGH21-263 intersected 108.00 m @ 0.70 g/t Au, including 18.00 m @ 1.55 g/t Au, including 2.00 m @ 6.79 g/t Au
  • MGH21-259 intersected 96.00 m @ 0.64 g/t Au, including 23.15 m @ 1.09 g/t Au, including 3.00 m @ 2.96 g/t Au
  • MGH21-237 intersected 5.00 m @ 3.01 g/t Au, including 1.00 m @ 14.80 g/t Au
  • MGH21-237 intersected 105.00 m @ 0.42 g/t Au, including 87.00 m @ 0.50 g/t Au
  • MGH21-263 intersected 46.00 m @ 0.44 g/t Au, including 22.00 m @ 0.53 g/t Au, including 2.00 m @ 1.15 g/t Au
  • MGH21-244 intersected 37.00 m @ 0.47 g/t Au, including 12.00 m @ 0.94 g/t Au, including 2.00 m @ 2.03 g/t Au and 2.00 m @ 2.02 g/t Au

Gary O'Connor, Moneta's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "These latest drill results have confirmed significant gold mineralization in an area not previously drill tested and beyond the current gold resources. The Windjammer Central exploration drilling program was testing for gold mineralization over a large area located within the current economic open pit at Windjammer South, north of the regional Banded Iron Formation, and the new discovery has the potential to significantly improve the economics of the open pit. We look forward to releasing the remaining outstanding drill results when they become available and updating the mineral resource estimate for the Tower Gold project in the first half of 2022."

The latest assay results from the Windjammer Central resource expansion drill program include assay results from twelve (12) new drill holes, for a total of 6,488.0 m. Additional results from these holes are still pending. The drill program was conducted to test a large area to the north of the Windjammer South resource, within the economic open pit in an area with little historical drilling. The Windjammer South open pit gold deposit currently hosts 1.10 Moz gold at a grade of 0.84 g/t gold in indicated resources and 1.03 Moz at a grade of 1.10 g/t gold in the inferred category at a cut-off grade of 0.30 g/t gold (see December 10, 2020 press release). Full assays from an additional 38 drill holes for 16,401 m from the drill program remain pending.

Discussion of Drill Results

Drilling was targeting Timiskaming age clastic sediment hosted gold mineralized stacked quartz veins north of the Windjammer South resource in the new Windjammer Central discovery area located immediately north of the regional Banded Iron Formation "A" ("BIF A") unit and south of previous drilling. The drilling was testing a large area within the Windjammer economic open pit in an area not previously drill tested and not currently in any resource category. The Windjammer South deposit occurs as the largest open pit gold resource of the Tower Gold project.

Drill results from the current program at Windjammer Central confirmed the occurrence of generally shallow west dipping stacked quartz vein sets and associated ankerite-albite-sericite-pyrite alteration haloes in large step-outs beyond the current gold resource and south of previous drilling at Windjammer Central. The latest assay results confirmed gold mineralization over an area 1,500 m long, 300 m wide, and down to depths of over 400 m. Additional results from the Windjammer Central and South resource expansion drilling program are pending.

Moneta Gold

Overview

The Timmins Gold camp in Ontario, Canada, stands as the country's most prolific gold-producing camp. With over 85 million ounces of gold production across the last 100 years, the large region continues to present investors with world-class gold and mineral discovery possibilities.

Mineral exploration companies operating gold projects in this famous gold district leverage excellent infrastructure and positioning near some of the most economic gold players in mining. However, with multiple junior developers in the region, finding the gold mining company with the best gold assets is what stands the best investments apart.

Moneta Gold (TSX:ME), formerly Moneta Porcupine Mines is one of these companies with a large position in the camp. Focused on its highly prospective flagship Tower Gold Project on the Destor Porcupine Fault corridor in the prolific Timmins gold camp in Ontario, Canada, Moneta Gold holds a 100 percent interest in several gold projects and a 50 percent joint venture with Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (TSX:KL).

Moneta Gold's Tower Gold Project hosts a total gold resource of 4.0 million ounces indicated and 4.4 million ounces inferred. The Tower Gold project is a combination of the Golden Highway Gold project and the adjacent Garrison Gold project acquired from O3 Mining (TSXV:OIII, OTCQX:OIIIF). The Garrison gold project consists of the large Garrison open pit gold resource containing 1.8 Moz indicated and 1.1 Moz inferred resources.

Operating in the Timmins Gold camp allows the company to leverage the existing excellent infrastructure in Timmins, which helps support future gold production scenarios.

The future of the Tower Gold Project which contains the Garrison Project and Golden Highway projects remains highly prospective with tremendous resource and economic growth opportunities. Moneta has 100% ownership of one of the largest undeveloped gold projects in North America with regional-scale potential. The company plans an extensive 70,000 m drill program this year followed by an updated resource estimate followed by an updated preliminary economic assessment (“PEA") which will examine a development scenario with significantly expanded scope and production profile.

During 2020 the underground South West deposit within the Golden Highway Project and the Garrison open pit gold deposits were subjected to PEA studies which showed robust economics with solid gold production profiles. New open pit and underground deposits and discoveries at Golden Highway were not included in the PEA studies.

The company is focusing 2021 on testing the significant resource expansion potential identified at Golden Highway and Garrison to expand the total gold resource endowment on the total Tower Gold project and believes the project will be large enough to support milling infrastructure. It is expected that the expanded resource base will result in a significantly expanded scope and production profile in the planned updated PEA study which will address the combined project.

Moneta Gold has a robust capital structure and strategic shareholder portfolio. The company's market cap stands at CAD$213 million with 557.5 million shares outstanding and no debt. The company is supported by a loyal and strong institutional shareholder base, significant insider ownership, the backing and support of O3 Mining and a good retail investor following.

Moneta Gold's management team combines over 35 years of financial management, geology, and mineral exploration experience. Moneta Gold's CEO, Gary O'Connor, has a proven track record of project development and brings world-class expertise in mining investment. Together, he and his team are preparing the company for outstanding economic growth and mineral exploration opportunities.

This drilling successfully intersected gold mineralization over a strike length of 1,500 m and a width of 300 m to the north of the Windjammer South open pit gold resource within the Windjammer Central area. Today's results confirm significant extensions of gold mineralization to the current gold resource at Windjammer South both within and as extensions to the current economic open pit.

Gary Wagner: Gold Will Hit a Another Record, but Rally Close to Final Leg youtu.be

The US Federal Reserve is hiking interest rates in a bid to curb inflation, but according to Gary Wagner, executive producer at TheGoldForecast.com, that's not what will tame high prices.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the recent Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC), Wagner, who also writes for Kitco Media, explained that supply chain issues are a bigger part of the problem.

"We've never had a point when we've had this kind of inflationary pressure and not had interest rates that are at least half to three-quarters the level of inflation. In other words, if inflation's running at 10 percent, interest rates are running at 5 to 8 percent," he said during an interview on the sidelines of the show.
