Granada Gold Mine Inc. (TSXV: GGM) (the "Company" or "Granada") is pleased to announce that Mining Lease BM852 which is 24.8 hectares, was renewed for another 10 years till 2030. This Lease is part of the current resource and is part of the past-producing underground mine which was mined at a grade of 9.7 grams per tonne gold. The renewal keeps the current 26 permits in good standing for mining and shipping to a custom mill and allows the taking of bulk samples of up to 500 tonnes.

The extension required the closure plan to be revised and triggered an increase in financial assurances which was completed and paid. Another revised closure plan with revised bond will be necessary once Granada property goes into production.

Bulk Sample Highlight:

  • A 500-tonne bulk sample of mineralized material and 900 tonnes of waste (low grade) were taken where diamond drill hole GR-19-A intersected 11.45 grams per tonne gold from 0 to 33 meters down hole (refer to Jan. 9, 2020 , news release). A subsequent 1,220-kilogram mineralized material (blasted rock) sample was taken over a 3-metre strike length and returned 55.6 grams per tonne native gold (refer to Sept. 11, 2020 , news release).

  • A 100-kilogram mineralized material sample was sent to GEKKO in Australia to evaluate the amenability of upgrading using in-line pressure jigs. The company has visited GEKKO in Australia , and two plant installations using in-line pressure jigs, and found that using them to pre-concentrate the low-grade mineralized material may be viable for the Granada Mine Property. GEKKO has processed the material and has submitted a report on the findings of the testwork. The company is interpreting the results presently and is expecting to update the shareholders with a news release shortly.

  • The 500-tonne bulk sample, obtained by drilling and blasting with rubber mats, has been crushed to smaller than 4 inches with a crusher set-up on the boom of the excavator and the company is currently looking to further process the mineralized material to get an overall assay. The bulk sample excavation site has been refilled and levelled for safety reasons.

Frank J. Basa , P.Eng., President and CEO: "Based on results from this bulk sample and the GEKKO pre-concentration test results, the company may rethink the resource grades and return to the original 43-101 historical in-situ Mineral Resources of 946,000 ounces gold at 1.02 grams per tonne Measured, 659,000 ounces gold at 1.09 grams per tonne Indicated and 1,033,000 ounces gold at 1.07 grams per tonne Inferred. A cut-off grade 0.4 grams per tonne gold was used". (SGS NI 43-101 Technical Report PEA Granada Gold Project, February 4 th 2013 by J. Gagné, G. Gagnon, C. Duplessis, G. Rousseau).

About Granada Gold Mine Inc.

Granada Gold Mine Inc. continues to develop the Granada Gold Property near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec . Approximately 140,000 meters of drilling has been completed to date on the property, focused mainly on the extended LONG Bars zone which trends 2 kilometers east-west over a potential 5.5 kilometers of mineralized structure. The highly prolific Cadillac Break, the source of more than 75 million plus ounces of gold production in the past century, cuts through the north part of the Granada property, but is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the company's property.

The Granada Shear Zone and the South Shear Zone contain, based on historical detailed mapping as well as from current and historical drilling, up to twenty-two mineralized structures trending east-west over five and a half kilometers. Three of these structures were mined historically from four shafts and three open pits. Historical underground grades were 8 to 10 grams per tonne gold from two shafts down to 236 m and 498 m with open pit grades from 3.5 to 5 grams per tonne gold.

Updated Mineral Resource

The updated resource at the Company's Granada Gold project in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec was estimated by SGS Canada and outlined in a January 29, 2021 news release.  The final report was filed March 15, 2021 with an Effective date of December 15, 2020 . The 43-101 Technical Report is titled: Granada Gold Project Mineral Resource Estimate Update, Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, Canada authored by Yann Camus , P.Eng. and Maxime Dupéré, B.Sc., géo.

The S&P/TSX Composite Index (INDEXTSI:OSPTX) was trading at 19,501.18 early last Friday (August 5) morning. It ultimately closed the week higher at 19.619.88.

That said, all eyes were on platinum and palladium last week as analysts and traders lowered their price forecasts for the year on sluggish demand from the auto sector, a Reuters poll shows.

VIDEO — Rick Rule: Glad to See Gold on Sale, "Solidly Bullish" on Uranium

Rick Rule Symposium

Gold has seen ups and downs this summer, but is solidly below its Q1 peak of over US$2,000 per ounce.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Rule Symposium in Florida, Rick Rule, the host of the event and proprietor at Rule Investment Media, said he sees the lack of interest in the yellow metal as positive.

"The fact that people are disinterested in gold, and disinterested in resources, I think is a wonderful thing because they're on sale," he explained, reminding listeners that he favors a contrarian approach to the markets.
