The Company cautions that it has not defined or delineated any proven or probable reserves for the Otso Mine Project and mineralization estimates may therefore require adjustment or downward revision based upon further exploration or development work or actual production experience. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

The Company also cautions that the decision by the Company to proceed to develop the Osto Mine Project and extract mineralization proceeded without the Company first establishing reserves supported by a technical report and completing a pre-feasibility or feasibility study.  Accordingly, there is a higher risk of technical and economic failure at Osto because development proceeded without first establishing reserves supported by a technical report and completing a feasibility study.  This is particularly relevant as the Company has proceeded with development at Osto on indicated and inferred resources without first completing a preliminary economic report.

VIDEO — Jeff Clark: Gold and Silver in 2023 — Prices and Key Factors to Watch

Where are gold and silver prices headed after last year's relatively flat performance?

Jeff Clark of sees both metals moving upward, and when it comes to gold he said it will be important to watch the US Federal Reserve, which will at some point move from tightening interest rates to easing.

"I think that reversal — going from a tightening to an easing cycle — could easily be one instigator that lights a fire under gold," he said, adding that while the Fed has been aggressive with its hikes so far, a turnaround may not be far away.

Indicator Minerals in Gold Exploration (Updated 2023)

Indicator Minerals in Gold Exploration (Updated 2023)

Indicator minerals, also known as pathfinder minerals, are used by those engaged in mineral exploration to effectively narrow down the search area for many different types of ore deposits.

When found as grains in sediments and/or rocks, these minerals give clues as to the presence and location of specific types of mineralization. They tend to be used in the search for gold, copper, nickel, tungsten, diamond and platinum-group metals deposits.

In indicator mineral-based exploration programs, sediments and rocks are either geochemically tested or visually inspected for clues about the distance and direction of their source. When it comes to visual inspection, rocks are examined for certain grain morphologies and surface textures in order to obtain information about transport distance and bedrock source.
