Bravada Gold Corporation (TSXV: BVA) (FSE: BRTN) (OTCQB: BGAVF) (the "Company" or "Bravada") reports that it has commenced reverse-circulation drilling at the Company's 100% owned Wind Mountain goldsilver project in northwestern Nevada. The program will begin with approximately 1,400m of shallow in-fill holes within a higher-than-average grade portion of the existing oxide resource, which could evolve into a Phase I starter pit. Following the in-fill holes, approximately 600m will be drilled to explore deeper a potential feeder vein zone discovered in hole WM20-102, which intersected 1.5 metres of approximately 4.5gt Au-eq (0.404gt Au and 269.0gt Ag) within a thicker interval of quartz veining with anomalous gold and silver mineralization.

The Company is re-assessing the shallow and oxidized, disseminated gold and silver resource on the Wind Mountain property, starting with in-fill drilling in several under-drilled areas that could inexpensively add higher grade resource. The goal is to complete an update to the resource and PEA by Q1 2022.

Following completion of the in-fill holes, the Feeder target will be tested beneath the silver-rich vein intersected in hole WM20-102.

President Joe Kizis commented, "Veins are rare within the poorly consolidated sediments that host disseminated mineralization at Wind Mountain, and the vein zone intersected in WM20-102 is unusual in other ways. The vein zone includes hydrothermal breccia, which indicates strong hydrothermal activity often associated with boiling. However, the vein zone does not exhibit common boiling textures that are often associated with higher gold grades, suggesting boiling and significant gold deposition may have occurred deeper in the vein zone. Further evidence of higher gold grades deeper is the presence of finely disseminated silver sulfides and the ratio of silver to gold, which is much higher than usual for Wind Mountain. Based on our paleo-reconstruction, the depth of the vein zone intersected in WM20-102 is estimated to be less than 150 metres below the paleosurface, consistent with other observations of being in the shallow part of the mineralizing system with the strongest gold mineralization occurring deeper. The model will be tested where the vein zone cuts brittle rocks that should be favorable for more extensive vein development below the WM20-102 intercept."

About Wind Mountain

The Wind Mountain Property is in northwestern Nevada approximately 160km northeast of Reno in a sparsely populated region with excellent logistics, including county-maintained road access and a power line to the property. It is an historic past-producing, bulk-tonnage gold-silver mine. An independent resource estimate and Preliminary Economic Evaluation for Wind Mountain commissioned by Bravada in 2012 reported:

  • 570,000 ounces of gold and 14.7 million ounces of silver in the Indicated category, and
  • 354,000 ounces of gold and 10.1 million ounces of silver in the Inferred category.

See the table below and news release NR-06-12 dated April 11, 2012 for details of the resource update. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Inferred resources are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be classified as mineral reserves. There is no assurance that any part of the resources will ultimately be converted to mineral reserves.

Mine Development Associates compiled the Technical Report and PEA. Thomas Dyer, P.E. is a Senior Engineer for MDA and is responsible for sections of the Technical Report involving mine designs and the economic evaluation, and Steven Ristorcelli, C.P.G., is a Principal Geologist for MDA and is responsible for the sections involving the Mineral Resource estimate. These are the Qualified Persons of the technical report for the purpose of Canadian NI 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Economic Analyses of Mineral Projects. Details of the PEA produced by Mine Development Associates (MDA) of Reno can be found on SEDAR, as previously reported (see NR-07-12 dated May 1, 2012). Note that although the PEA was encouraging, it is preliminary in nature, it includes Inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves, and there is no certainty that the PEA will be realized.

Will Rhind: Upside Favors Gold; Strong US Dollar Checking Gains for Nowyoutu.be

Strength in the US dollar is keeping the gold price in check right now, but that won't last forever.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares, said the yellow metal is in a good position given market conditions and looks set to strengthen moving forward.

"(Gold has) really managed to shrug off a lot of the negatives around rising rates and a strong dollar, and I think people have got to ask themselves, 'How much more can the dollar strengthen from here? ... Realistically is there more upside for the dollar here, or for gold?' I think clearly I'm in the camp of favoring gold on that one," he said.

12 Largest Producers of Gold by Country (Updated 2022)

The gold price has tracked higher in the past few years, sparking interest in the biggest producers.

The precious metal’s price gains have come along with the uncertainty born from the global economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as geopolitical turmoil.

These circumstances have left investors seeking safe-haven assets like gold. So far gold production levels have seemed to defy pandemic disruptions, but rising inflation is likely to push up costs for miners.

Kal Kotecha: Gold Price Holding Up Well, Time to Watch for Buying Opportunitiesyoutu.be

Gold's performance has disappointed some market participants this year, but according to Dr. Kal Kotecha of Junior Gold Report, the yellow metal is holding up well compared to other assets.

Speaking at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, Kotecha said that looking back over the last 20 years, gold has outperformed major indexes like the S&P 500 (INDEXDJX:.DJI).

"A lot of people want to see gold at US$5,000 and US$10,000 (per ounce), kind of like how bitcoin rose quite a bit. But gold is a different beast in itself," he said. "So in my opinion gold is doing well."

Prismo Metals Announces Closing of Financing and Appointment of New Director

Prismo Metals Inc. (CSE: PRIZ) ("Prismo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced financing for gross proceeds of $682,125 through the exercise of warrants by certain warrantholders, including a number of insiders.

"The proceeds received by Prismo will be primarily used to drill a minimum of 2,000 meters of HQ core at the Company's Verdes property in several holes to test mineralization at depth under the high-grade intercepts from previous drilling campaigns," said Dr. Craig Gibson, President and CEO of Prismo. He added: "Two of these holes intersected high-grade mineralization similar in grade and width to the results of Vizsla Silver Corp. (TSXV: VZLA and NYSE: VZLA) in the Panuco district, whose property is contiguous to Palos Verdes. The best intercepts of these previous drilling campaigns were 2,336 g/t Ag and 8.42 g.t Au over a true width estimated at 0.8 meters within a larger mineralized interval with 1,098 g/t Ag and 3.75 g/t Au over a true width of 2.3 meters (see Prismo's news release dated September 30, 2020). The Company believes these intercepts indicate the presence of a potentially large Ag-Au shoot of the type being defined by Vizsla Silver."
