Gold Mountain Mining Corp. (TSXV:GMTN)(Frankfurt:5XFA) ("Gold Mountain" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has engaged JDS Energy & Mining Inc. ("JDS") to complete the Pre-Feasibility Study (the "PFS") at the Elk Gold Project located in British Columbia


The PFS was commissioned to reflect the recent advancements the Company has made to the Elk Gold Project, most notably, the signing of both the Contract Mining Agreement and the Ore Purchase Agreement. These key inputs provide Gold Mountain with the near-term cost certainty required to delineate a maiden reserve at the Elk Gold Project. It is anticipated that the PFS will also update the Company's resource estimate at the Siwash North Zone based on the results of its Phase 1 drill program.

"We are very pleased to have JDS lead the PFS update. Their proven track record of engineering expertise in building 'fit for purpose' projects in Canada's north will greatly contribute to the Elk Gold Project," stated Kevin Smith, Director, and CEO. "Having a reputable group validate our economics, assess the underground potential, and continue to advance the Elk Gold Project, strengthens our upside and ability to deliver long-term value to our shareholders."

JDS will lead the PFS update with support from Knight Piesold Consulting and certain key independent consultants. The PFS is expected to be completed in Q3 2021.

Gord Doerksen, President of the Engineering Division at JDS, further states, "We are happy to be working with Gold Mountain to support near-term production and long-term planning at the Elk Gold Project. The team has built a strong foundation for JDS to add our extensive operational and permitting experience on a number of quality projects in BC, and we look forward to maximizing value together as partners."

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, he 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 supported 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.
