CANEX Metals Inc. ("CANEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of the Company's second reverse circulation drilling program at the Gold Range Project in Northern Arizona

The Company successfully completed 34 drill holes across 2.5 kilometres of strike length along the southern portion of the Gold Range Property. In total 2357.6 metres were drilled in holes ranging from 38 to 137 metres deep. During the program the amount of drilling was increased by over 25% from the originally planned 1829 metres due to efficient drilling progress and encouraging drill observations. During the program 15 holes were drilled at the Eldorado Zone to confirm and expand the Company's previously announced bulk tonnage oxide discovery, where hole GR20-9 intersected 27.4 metres grading 0.9 g/t gold starting at surface (previously released see press release dated November 2 2020). Five holes tested various targets across the southern part of the property and 14 holes tested the Excelsior Mine area.

During the program 1642 drill samples were collected and have been submitted for assay with first results expected in the next few weeks. Select targets in the central and northern part of the property remain to be tested and additional work focused on the Eldorado to Excelsior area and testing additional targets will commence following assay results.

The program focused on testing the Eldorado Zone and the Excelsior Mine including select targets along 2.5 km of strike length between the two zones. The program was designed to test bulk tonnage targets which can surround narrow high grade gold veins. At the Excelsior mine, a generation of sugary quartz veins and veinlets with open cavities and gold was observed cutting the main Excelsior Vein. The extent and distribution of this gold rich event remains poorly defined but has been targeted in select drill holes.

About the Gold Range Property

The Gold Range Property is located in Northern Arizona within an underexplored belt containing historic load and placer gold production. CANEX has identified widespread gold mineralization within a 3 kilometre by 5 kilometre area including two gold-in-soil anomalies that are up to a kilometre in scale.

Figure 2. Map showing the Gold Range Property, the Excelsior Mine Property under option, and the main areas of focus for the current drill program.

Drilling in August and September 2020 identified near surface bulk tonnage gold potential at the Eldorado Zone with Hole GR20-9 returning 0.9 g/t gold over 27.3 metres including 5.9 g/t gold over 1.5 metres. Hole GR20-8 drilled from the same pad as GR20-9 returned 0.5 g/t gold over 24.4 metres starting from surface. Hole GR20-13, drilled 150 metres west of GR20-9, returned 0.6 g/t gold over 21.3 metres. The new discovery correlates with a strong gold in soil anomaly and sheeted quartz veinlets and stockworks within metamorphic rocks. The immediate target area at Eldorado containing exposed mineralization and strong gold in soils is 250 metres long by 24 to 80 metres thick, with mapping, gold in soils, and surface rock sampling suggesting the zone could extend for over a kilometer along strike or more. The Excelsior Mine, 2.5 kilometres east of Eldorado, has seen historic underground and open pit mining along a zone 200 metres long and open along strike. Gold mineralization is centered along the shallow dipping high grade Excelsior Vein which is surrounded by a halo of sheeted quartz and quartz carbonate veins 20 to 50 metres wide.

The Company remains focused on confirming and expanding the new Eldorado discovery and testing and delineating the Excelsior Mine and surrounding area through continued exploration and drilling.

Best Gold Stocks on the TSX

After reaching an all-time high last summer, the gold price has put out an underwhelming performance for much of 2021, leaving many investors wondering when it will take off again.

Values for the precious metal have failed to regain January’s momentum. Despite brief efforts in May and November, the gold price has struggled to stay above the US$1,800 per ounce mark.

For most of 2021, the yellow metal has battled a strengthening US dollar and gains in 10 year treasury yields. Investor risk appetite has also impeded growth for the safe haven asset.

Rick actively participated in the discovery of a number of uranium, gold and base metal deposits, and for several years, in his capacity as Exploration Manager, he directed Cameco Corporation's uranium exploration projects in the Athabasca Basin. In 1999, Rick joined JNR Resources becoming Vice President of Exploration in 2000. Subsequently, he directed the exploration program that led to the discovery of the Maverick Zone on the Moore Lake uranium project with then partner Kennecott Canada. Rick later became JNR's President and CEO in January of 2001, and continued leading the company until February of 2013, JNR was acquired by Denison Mines Corp. by way of a friendly all-share take-over bid. Rick also served as the industry Chair and Director of the Exploration Section of the Saskatchewan Mining Association for many years and was a director of Rockridge Resources Ltd., Bessor Minerals Inc. and several other publicly traded companies.

Yamana Gold Receives Permit at Jacobina, Initiating Ramp Up of Phase 2 Expansion, Expects Fourth Quarter Company Wide Production to Exceed 270,000 GEO With Costs Tracking to Be the Lowest of the Year

YAMANA GOLD INC. (TSX:YRI; NYSE:AUY; LSE:AUY) ("Yamana" or "the Company") is pleased to announce it has received the permit at its Jacobina mine to increase throughput to 10,000 tonnes per day ("tpd").

At this processing rate production at Jacobina will increase through the second half of 2022 with a full year at a production level of 230,000 ounces per year beginning in 2023.

The Company is also reporting particularly strong operating performance from El Peñón and Cerro Moro, both of which were planned to have higher production in the last several months of the year as they sequenced into higher grade zones, all of which supports the Company's previous guidance that fourth quarter production will exceed 270,000 gold equivalent ounces ("GEO") (1 ) and annual production will exceed overall 2021 guidance of 1,000,000 GEO (1 ) . Fourth quarter all-in sustaining costs ("AISC") (2) are also expected to be the lowest of the year and are estimated to be approximately $980 per GEO (1 ) or lower, which is 7% below AISC (2) reported for the prior three quarters.
