Gold Mountain to Begin Mine Construction

Gold Mountain Mining Corp. ("Gold Mountain" or the "Company" ) (TSX.V:GMTN, OTCQB:GMTNF, Frankfurt:5XFA) is pleased to announce that it has received its Notice of Departure ("NoD") to begin mine construction at its 100% owned Elk Gold Project located near Merritt, BC. The Company anticipates construction to begin in May 2021 and is the first major operating catalyst to ore delivery in Q4 2021


  • On April 29, the Company received authorization from the Ministry of Mines to begin construction and upgrades required to put the mine back into production.
  • This milestone is inline with the Company's Q2 forecast and is a major catalyst to preparing the site for ore mining and delivery.
  • The Company has resolved the remaining Information Requests from the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation ("EMLI") and the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development ("FLNROD").
  • Once all Information Requests have been accepted, it is anticipated the Permit Amendment will be sent up for final approval.

"Feedback from institutions has always been that our projected timelines are aggressive and might be difficult to achieve", commented Kevin Smith, CEO of Gold Mountain. "Receiving this Notice of Departure allows us to take the critical steps of upgrading our existing water management system, installing a weigh scale, as well as leveraging a gravel borrow to start stripping waste from our initial pit and repurpose it into aggregate needed to resurface roads throughout the property. By getting into construction early, we will be ready to hit the ground running once our various mine permit amendments are approved. Since acquiring this project, we were very clear about our intent to quickly put this mine back into production, with efficient deployment of capital. Management intends to continue maintaining our strong treasury, while pushing the pace of project advancement and delivering key milestones, week after week. With the snow on site nearly gone, our mine construction partner, Nhwelmen-Lake LP, has been notified to begin mobilizing their equipment, in anticipation of developing BC's next high grade Gold and Silver producer."

Notice of Departure
The NoD is an authorization allowing the Company to begin construction and site preparation at the Elk Gold Project under Gold Mountain's existing M-199 mine permit. This milestone was achieved on-time and adheres to the Company's forecasted schedule of ore mining and delivery to its ore purchase partner, New Gold Inc., in Q4 of 2021.

Environment and Sustainability
The NoD includes permission for the Company to facilitate a "gravel borrow" at the Elk Gold Project. This authorization allows Gold Mountain to begin waste rock mining operations where the material can be recycled and reused for road construction. With this permission, the Company avoids the need to purchase and haul additional material to site, mitigating high capital costs, carbon emissions, and wasteful mining procedures.

Equipment Mobilization
Following the issuance of the NoD, Nhwelmen-Lake LP, the Company's mining partners, will begin mobilizing the equipment needed to begin constructing roads, a site offices, support facilities and upgrading the projects water management system.

Permit Update
Gold Mountain has continued to advance it's Mine Permit amendment (the "Mine Permit '') with the necessary regulators to adhere to it's aggressive timelines. Currently, the Company has addressed all round 2 questions from the EMLI and FLNROD. The permitting team is now cohesively working with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy to address its final information requests for the receipt of the Effluent Discharge Permit.

Additionally, the Company continues to emphasize and foster it's relationships with Indegenous Communities in the region and has made significant progress in developing strong relationships. Gold Mountain looks forward to sustaining it's rapport with the communities and building a working relationship built on transparency and respect.

Kerry Stevenson: Ready to Invest After Cashing Out (Gold, Biotech and More)

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Kerry Stevenson, host of Making Money Matter, explained why she sold all but three stocks in her portfolio late last year, and what she's doing with her money now.

"I actually cashed in the whole portfolio aside from one coal stock ... and two gold stocks," she said on the sidelines of the Rule Symposium. "I've been sitting in cash up until about two and a half weeks ago, when I've come back in with quite big licks on four stocks, and I've still got some cash where I'm looking at some of the small caps."

One gold stock Stevenson is "very happy" with is Spartan Resources (ASX:SPR,OTC Pink:GYYSF), formerly Gascoyne Resources, which she said has undergone a turnaround since Managing Director Simon Lawson took the helm.

Joe Cavatoni: Gold's Next Price Catalyst After Record H1 Performance

Joe Cavatoni, senior market strategist, Americas, at the World Gold Council, reviewed gold's H1 performance and outlined what factors could drive the yellow metal in the second half of the year.

In his opinion, the sector's east/west divide remains, and will be key to watch as 2024 continues.

"I think that what we're looking at in the second half of the year is whether or not the eastern investor, who doesn't really pay much attention to where US rates are, or real rates are in western markets — they're looking at their homegrown investment requirements — will they stay active and actually continue to make that investment into gold in their investment portfolios," he said on the sidelines of the Rule Symposium.

Top 6 ASX Gold ETFs in 2024

The gold price has reached historic highs in 2024, rising well above US$2,400 per ounce. For Australian investors, the price of the yellow metal has surged above the AU$3,700 mark in the past few months.

These gains have come as investors anticipate interest rate cuts and against a backdrop of geopolitical turmoil. Gold has also been buoyed by central bank buying, with China, India and Turkey leading the way in the first half of 2024.

For many investors, gold is a tool for diversification. The precious metal is known for its ability to act as a safe haven and hence operates as a protective option when building a balanced portfolio.
