Hornby Bay Mineral Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: HBE) (OTC: HBEXF) ("HBE" or the "Company") announces that further to its press release of March 25, 2021, the Company has entered into a second amending agreement dated April 21, 2021 (the "Amending Agreement") with Frank Guillemette (the "Principal Shareholder"), Jonathan Girard and Jean-Francois Girard (together with the Principal Shareholder, the "Vendors") amending certain provisions of the definitive share purchase agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") dated November 30, 2020 and as amended on March 23, 2021, between the Vendors and the Company providing for the purchase of the shares of 9396-1217 Quebec Inc.

The Amending Agreement amends the Definitive Agreement by removing the repurchase option which granted the Principal Shareholder the right, prior to the Company exercising the initial option to acquire a 50% interest in the Philibert Property (the "Option") under an option agreement between 9220-5392 Quebec Inc. and SOQUEM Inc., to repurchase the Option in the event that the Company had not incurred sufficient exploration expenditures to maintain the Option, or if the Option was otherwise going to be terminated or lapse. As consideration for the termination of the repurchase option, the Principal Shareholder has been granted a right of first refusal ("ROFR") in the event that the Company proposes to sell its interest in the Philibert Property. The ROFR expires upon the Company exercising the Option in full and earning a 100% interest in the Philibert Property. In addition, the Definitive Agreement has been amended to provide that the Company can issue a maximum of 29,179,698 common shares in the capital of the Company for each of the additional payments due 12, 18 and 24 months following the closing of the transaction (the "Proposed Transaction") contemplated by the Definitive Agreement.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Bounces Back, Experts Talk Recession Question

Weekly August 5youtu.be

After dipping briefly below the US$1,700 per ounce mark in mid-July, gold is bouncing back.

The yellow metal has made a big move since last week's US Federal Reserve meeting, nearly making it to US$1,800. It was back down around US$1,775 at the time of this writing on Friday (August 5) afternoon.

The Fed hiked interest rates last week by 75 basis points, as was widely expected by market participants. Major indexes have been on the rise, which Lobo Tiggre of IndependentSpeculator.com told me is unsurprising.

Rick Rule Symposium 2022youtu.be

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.

Is Gold a Buy? Jim Cramer Says Timing Looks "Perfect"

As volatility reigns supreme across equity markets, many analysts are saying that gold’s fall below US$1,800 per ounce means it’s a good time to buy before the price goes up.

Gold's dip under that threshold began at the beginning of July, and is the first time the yellow metal has slipped below and held at that level since late 2021. The decline comes after gold breached US$2,000 in early March.

Many market participants remain resolute that it’s only a matter of time before gold regains its lost momentum, and that sentiment was echoed on Wednesday (August 3) by well-known TV personality Jim Cramer during the "Off the Charts" segment of his “Mad Money” investing show on CNBC.

Types of Gold Deposits in Australia

As the second largest gold-producing country in the world, Australia also boasts the largest gold mine reserves. In order to make more strategic decisions, investors will stand to benefit from understanding Australia's distinctive geography, specifically the types of gold deposits found in the country.

Australia has a rich history in mining. One of the biggest gold rushes took place in New South Wales, Australia in 1851, which later extended to the province of Victoria. Today, Victoria and its successful gold mines stand as some of the highest-yielding and high-grade resources. Victoria’s 13 goldfields have each produced over one million ounces of gold, most of which were from the world-class Fosterville deposit, Ballarat, Costerfield and Stawell.
