Precious Metals

Novo Resources Corp. ( "Novo" or the "Company" ) (TSX-V: NVO; OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to announce that mapping and rock sampling have confirmed a new conglomerate discovery located approximately 2 kms to the south-west of the current Beatons Creek conglomerate gold resource (the " Beatons Creek Resource ") ( please see the Company's news release dated April 1, 2019 and the report titled " Amended and Restated NI 43-101 Technical Report: Mineral Resource Update, Beatons Creek Conglomerate Gold Project, Pilbara Region, Western Australia" dated October 22, 2020 (effective date February 28, 2019) ). The prospect, designated ‘ Skyfall ,' has been confirmed as a younger depositional cycle in the Nullagine gold project. The mineralisation is located within easy trucking distance to the recently acquired Nullagine mill, providing further extensions to the Beatons Creek conglomerate gold system.


  • The Skyfall mineralised package is defined at surface over a strike length of 1.9km and remains open to the west ( please see Figure 1 below ).
  • A small outcrop of boulder conglomerate lag higher in the stratigraphy is already included in the existing Beatons Creek Resource. This horizon is now recognised where it projects into the hills (‘Skyfall') to the southwest.
  • Historical assays from Skyfall mineralisation comprise rock sampling with a maximum of 51.3 g/t gold ( please see the Company's news releases dated January 29, 2014 and July 24, 2014 ) and costean sampling with a maximum of 11.3 g/t gold ( please see the Company's news release dated June 14, 2017 ) on the small outcrop.
  • The Skyfall unit is interpreted as a stratigraphical repeat of the Beatons Creek unit and contains at least three boulder conglomerate lag horizons.

The Skyfall Extension

The southern-most extent of the current Beatons Creek Resource gently dips under cover. Further to the south-west, an additional single boulder conglomerate lag was identified during mapping and rock sampling in 2014 and tested by eleven costean samples in 2017. Results were continuous, and this small mesa is part of the Beatons Creek Resource.

The location of this boulder conglomerate lag as a mesa on top of a hill places it approximately 240m stratigraphically above the main Beatons Creek mineralised sequence. An attempt was made to locate this boulder lag further to the southwest where it was interpreted to daylight again (‘Skyfall'). No continuous boulder conglomerate lags were recognized at that time.

The current mapping program aimed to better understand the overlying sequence stratigraphy in relation to the currently defined stratigraphy units. Applying typical basin fill sequence stratigraphy, rather than directly aiming to find narrow boulder conglomerate lags, the broader cycles of deposition were mapped. This mapping is ongoing but has thus far recognized at least three repeat depositional cycles in which boulder conglomerate lags may form, much like the important M1 and M2 boulder conglomerate lags being located within the broader Beatons Creek mineralised sequence. Delineating this unit in each cycle significantly simplifies targeting new potential mineralised conglomerate lags.

The Skyfall depositional cycle immediately overlying the Beatons Creek unit comprises an upwards coarsening sedimentary cycle and includes a ~ 20m thick upper sequence of Dromedary-clast bearing cobble to boulder conglomerate with elevated disseminated pyrite and buckshot pyrite comparable to the Beatons Creek mineralised unit ( please see Figure 2 below ). Within this Skyfall mineralised unit, three boulder conglomerate lags are now delineated over a strike length of approximately 1.9km and remain open to the west.

Mapping the overlying depositional cycles continues, with further work likely comprising dozer scrapes and costean sampling at surface, followed by RC drilling under cover.

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

Weekly August

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 told me is unsurprising.

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.

Rule Symposium 2022: Fed Can’t Fight Inflation and Recession at Same Time

The four day event, which ran from July 26 to 29, featured numerous panels, presentations and discussions about the current commodities cycle and what is driving the equity markets.

There was also rigorous discourse regarding the mode, drivers and factors causing inflation, as well as how central banks like the US Federal Reserve are responding with interest rate increases.

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.
