July 16, 2021 - TheNewswire - Vancouver, British Columbia Volcanic Gold Mines Inc. (TSXV:VG) (OTCVLMZF) is pleased to report further high grade drill results from La Peña vein at the Holly Project in Guatemala.

Hole HDD-21-004 at La Peña vein intersected 14.8m at 3.96 g/t Au and 1,097 g/t Ag.  This is the deepest intercept on the La Pena vein system to date with silver grades increasing with each step down.

Additionally, below the La Peña vein drill hole 4 cut a zone of disseminated silver mineralization grading 378 g/t Ag over 9.15m within the footwall of the vein (not included in the reported intercepts).  This silver mineralization was finely disseminated in altered volcanic rocks without significant veining.  The overall silver interval with La Peña vein and footwall disseminated silver mineralization returned 34.6m at 574 g/t Ag.  The hole stopped a few meters after the disseminated silver interval, with the final meters not assayed.

This new style of silver-only disseminated mineralization was not previously recognized on the property. Holly has a multi-phase mineralizing system with silver/gold ratios from 1-to-1 to 1,000-to-1 indicating multiple mineralizing pulses. As well, new veins are being intersected in the drilling unmapped at surface, with some exhibiting visible gold and ginguro banded sulfides in the core.

Simon Ridgway, Volcanic's President and CEO, commented: "It is great to see La Peña vein developing as a robust gold/silver system.  We are currently drilling hole HDD-21-021, stepping out along strike of La Peña vein which does not appear to be a narrow shoot."

Assays received from holes HDD-21-005 / 006 / 007 / 008, which targeted the El Pino vein system, cut weaker mineralization. However the El Pino vein zone is exposed over 100m higher than La Peña, so it may warrant more work.

The next assays due to be received and reported are from holes HDD-21-009 through Hdd-21-012 which tested the Alpha vein zone over a 450m strike system.  Drilling appears to have intersected a robust vein and breccia with good visible banded sulphides. Currently the drill rig is back on the La Peña vein stepping out on strike and down dip.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

Volcanic Gold follows industry standard procedures for diamond core drilling and analysis. Drilling is carried out using NQ and HQ size tooling. Drill core is cut in half  using a rock saw with one-half of the core then taken as a sample for analysis.  Sample intervals are generally 1m intervals, producing samples of between 2 to 9 kg. Half-core samples are delivered to the internationally certified Bureau Veritas Mineral laboratory facilities in Nicaragua where the samples are prepared. Assays are completed by Bureua Veritas in Canada.  The samples are fire assayed for Au and are analysed for Ag and multi-elements using method code ICP following a four-acid digestion.  Overlimits are analysed using an appropriate method.  Multi-element geochemical standards and blanks are routenely entered into the drill core sample stream to monitor laboratory performance.  Quality control samples submitted were returned within acceptable limits.

Terms of Guatemala Radius Gold and Volcanic Gold Mines option

Pursuant to an option agreement signed in May 2020 with Radius Gold Inc. (TSXV:RDU), Volcanic can earn a 60% interest in the Holly and Banderas projects by spending the cumulative amount of US$7.0 million on exploration of the properties within 48 months from the date of the agreement. An initial US$1M must be spent on exploration within the 12 months of receiving the required drill permits, which expenditure will include a minimum 3,000m of drilling on the properties.

Following the exercise of the Option, Volcanic will enter into a standard 60/40 Joint Venture in order to further develop the Properties.  Volcanic has also been granted an exclusive right to evaluate all other property interests of Radius in Guatemala with a right to acquire an interest in any or all other such properties on reasonable terms.

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.

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

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.
