Gold Mountain Mining Corp. (TSXV:GMTN)(FRA:5XFA)("Gold Mountain" or the ("Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an Ore Purchase Agreement ("OPA") with New Gold Inc. ("New Gold") for a three-year term

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Gold Mountain will deliver ore to New Gold's New Afton Mine located 130km from the Company's Elk Gold Project in Kamloops, British Columbia.
  • Pursuant to the OPA, New Gold has agreed to pay Gold Mountain in a timely manner based on the tonnes and grade of the ore delivered to the mill independent of when it's processed.
  • The OPA provides the Company with an efficient path towards initial production following the receipt of necessary permits.

Kevin Smith, CEO of Gold Mountain, states "Signing the OPA with New Gold represents another key milestone and partnership for Gold Mountain. This agreement will help advance initial production at the Elk Gold Project by eliminating the time and capital required to build on-site infrastructure. We are confident in our ability to execute on our mine plan and deliver significant value for our shareholders."


Ore Purchase Agreement

Under the terms of the OPA, Gold Mountain will deliver 70,000 tonnes of ore per annum, approximately 200 tonnes per day, to the mill located at New Gold's New Afton Mine situated 130km from the Elk Gold Project, in Kamloops, British Columbia. The OPA has a term of three years, giving Gold Mountain sufficient time to scale its business accordingly.

The ore will be sampled and weighed at the Elk Gold Project site to determine the contained ounces of gold and silver being delivered to the New Afton Mine. Following delivery of the ore, New Gold will pay Gold Mountain at the end of each calendar month based on the value of the gold and silver in the ore, net of the agreed metallurgical recovery and concentrate selling costs. New Gold then has 17 days to deliver payment for the ore. The terms of the OPA mitigate the variance and volatility of operational throughput for Gold Mountain and allows the Company to avoid any risk of recovery.

By securing a world-class toll milling partner in New Gold, along with the previously announced mining contract executed with Nhwelmen-Lake LP, Gold Mountain has the operational partners in place to increase shareholder value. The terms of the OPA supports the economic analysis set forth in Elk Gold's 2020 PEA posted on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and available for download at https://gold-mountain.ca/operations/.

The OPA is effective upon the first delivery of ore to the New Afton Mine. Prior to the first delivery of ore, the parties must settle on a sampling procedure for tracking the tonnes and grade delivered, Gold Mountain must receive the Permit (as defined below) and New Gold must obtain a permit amendment to allow for the processing to occur.

Mining Permit Update

Gold Mountain is pleased to provide an update on the progress of the Joint Permit Amendment Application that was submitted in May 2020 (the "Permit") and will allow for the extraction of 70,000 tonnes per annum of ore. The Permit was accepted through the application screening phase of the application review and Gold Mountain has responded to the first round of technical review questions that were provided by the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation, the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy and the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resources and Rural Development. Gold Mountain is anticipating a second (final) round of technical review questions from the regulators in the coming months prior to completing the Permit review process.

Brien Lundin: Poor Gold Sentiment Has Created "Epitome of a Buying Opportunity"youtu.be

Gold's price slump has left investors wary, but Gold Newsletter Editor Brien Lundin sees an opportunity.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, he said sentiment surrounding the yellow metal is "about as washed out as (he's) ever seen," including compared to the double-bottom bear market seen in 1999 and 2000.

However, Lundin pointed out, that bottom was the start of an impressive 11 year bull run.

Astra Intersects 4.5 G/T Over 9.0 Metres, Extending Mineralization at Depth at Pampa Paciencia Project, Chile

Astra Exploration Inc. ( TSXV: ASTR) (OTCQB: ATEPF) ("Astra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of the Phase II drilling program at its Pampa Paciencia gold-silver project located in Northern Chile.

Drill Highlights:
  • PPRC-22-45 intersected 4.5 g/t gold equivalent (AuEq) over 9.0 metres, including 12.7 g/t AuEq over 3.0 metres
  • PPRC-22-49 intersected 3.17 g/t gold equivalent over 3.0 metres, including 8.2 g/t gold equivalent over 1.0 metre

"Drilling at Pampa Paciencia continues to produce evidence of a large, mineralized epithermal system concealed by shallow gravel cover." Stated Brian Miller, President, CEO of Astra. "With limited drilling we have discovered three shoots of high-grade mineralization over significant widths and have defined over two kilometres of vein strike length, all within an area which represents less than 10 percent of the total project. Our team's targeting methods have been highly successful at discovering new veins concealed by the shallow cover and data indicates the potential for the district to contain several additional kilometres of concealed veins – all which would have the potential to host additional shoots of mineralization."

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.
