Kenorland Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: KLD) (FSE: 3WQ0) ( "Kenorland" or "the Company" ) is pleased to announce plans for surface exploration during the 2021 summer field season at the 161,025 hectare Chebistuan Project (" the Project" ), located in the northern Abitibi greenstone belt of Quebec .

The 2021 follow-up surface work will include approximately 800 infill B-horizon soil samples (glacial till substrate) along with 220 C-horizon till samples which will be analyzed for gold grain counts.  Sampling will be carried out within 15 areas of interest (AOIs), covering broad multi-element geochemical anomalies that the company identified from its property-wide regional till sampling program carried out in the fall of 2020.  The company also plans to carry out additional first-pass regional till sampling ( 1240 B -horizon soil samples) covering an additional 35,000 hectares of ground staked in October 2020.  The approximate budget for the planned surface program is C$400,000 .  The exploration will be funded by Newmont Corporation ("Newmont") under an Exploration Agreement with Venture Option ("Agreement"), described below, while Kenorland remains the operator of the project.

About the Chebistuan Project

The Project consists of 3,000 claims (161,025 ha) owned 100% by Kenorland. The property covers approximately 100 kilometers of a major east-west trending deformation zone which may represent the continuation of the Sunday Lake Deformation Zone, hosting major gold deposits such as Detour Lake (Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd.) and Fenelon (Wallbridge Mining Company Ltd.).  The Chibougamau and Chapais mining camps, which have produced over 6.5 Moz of gold and 1.6 billion pounds of copper historically, are located directly to the east of the Chebistuan property.  The project is largely covered with glacial till and is accessed by a large network of logging roads as well as helicopter.

The Project is currently under an Exploration Agreement with Venture Option with Newmont. The Agreement provides an option for a two-phased exploration earn-in over 3 years, where Newmont can earn a 51% interest in the Chebistuan Project through certain exploration expenditures and cash payments to Kenorland.  The initial phase of the agreement consists of a property- wide geochemical  sampling program, target definition and testing.  Newmont then has the option to earn an additional 29% interest for a cumulative 80% interest (phase two earn-in) in the Chebistuan Project over 6 years by completing a 43-101 compliant pre-feasibility study on a minimum 1.5 Moz Au resource as well as meeting certain cash payments to Kenorland.  The parties may continue to explore and develop the property through an 80% Newmont, 20% Kenorland joint venture or, in the case of a construction decision, Kenorland can elect for Newmont to finance its portion of mine development cost.  If Newmont elects not to continue with the phase two earn in, then ownership interest in the project will switch to 51% Kenorland and 49% Newmont.

Zach Flood , President and CEO of Kenorland states, "We're looking forward to getting back on the ground this summer at Chebistuan as we continue working with Newmont to advance this extensive greenfield exploration project.  This property covers a vast amount of prospective geology, including over 100 kilometers of strike along a major deformation zone, most of which is concealed below glacial till and largely under-explored. In terms of exploration strategy, we're applying the same approach that we took in the Frotet-Evans greenstone belt, which led to the significant gold discovery made at Regnault in 2020."

Collective Mining Drills 216.7m Grading 1.08 g/t Gold Equivalent at Olympus from Near Surface and Significantly Expands the Target Area

Collective Mining Drills 216.7m Grading 1.08 g/t Gold Equivalent at Olympus from Near Surface and Significantly Expands the Target Area

Collective Mining Ltd. (TSXV: CNL) ("Collective" or the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results for four additional diamond drill holes at the Olympus Target ("Olympus") within the Guayabales project ("Guayabales"), Colombia. Additionally, revised geological modeling based on the most current data has significantly expanded the target area for follow up exploration. The Company currently has three diamond drill rigs operating at various targets at the Guayabales project as part of its fully-financed, minimum 20,000 metre program for 2022.

"The Olympus target is advancing rapidly due to our exploration work and geological understanding and this has resulted in a 125 percent expansion of the target area. We are extremely excited about the precious metal potential of the system given the broad intercepts of gold and silver mineralization encountered in early drilling, the sheer size of the alteration system and the plethora of high-grade gold and silver-bearing, porphyry related, CBM veins. All the ingredients are in place for Olympus to evolve into a multi-million-ounce precious metal deposit. As our team understands full-well from our prior experience of exploring and developing the Buriticá project in Colombia, porphyry-related CBM veins can demonstrate robust continuity over significant vertical and lateral dimensions. Analogous to Olympus are both the multi-million-ounce high-grade Marmato and Buriticá systems, with each deposit measuring more than 1.5 vertical kilometres. The Marmato project is located approximately 3 kilometres to the southeast of Olympus and is situated within the same structurally controlled, porphyry intrusion – CBM vein, corridor," commented Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman.

5 Top Weekly TSXV Performers: Gold Explorers Make Moves in Choppy Market

Markets sank further into the red last Friday (April 6), still recoiling from the US Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates by 50 basis points (bps) during its May meeting.

The S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) fell to a year-to-date low of 767 points after the bell on Friday, marking an 18.25 percent decline from January’s start position.

The contraction was felt across all North American markets. As the Fed tries to battle rampant inflation and surging energy prices, S&P Global Market Intelligence sees more rate hikes coming.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Reacts to Fed Hike, Big Lithium Miners Share Results

Top Stories This Week: Gold Reacts to Fed Hike, Big Lithium Miners Share Resultsyoutu.be

We've made it through another week of ups and downs for gold.

After spending time as low as US$1,853 per ounce or so early in the period, the yellow metal hit a high of about US$1,907 on Thursday (May 5). It was back down at just under US$1,885 by Friday (May 6) afternoon.

The US Federal Reserve's latest meeting, which ran from Tuesday (May 3) to Wednesday (May 4), was top of mind for investors this week. Although there was some speculation that the central bank might raise interest rates by 75 basis points, a 50 basis point increase was more widely expected, and that's ultimately what happened.
