Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV: VSR) (OTCQX: VMNGF) (FSE: 1V8) ("Vanstar", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 4,000 metres (m) drill program at the Bousquet-Odyno project. The Company has contracted Diafor Inc., who has mobilized a diamond drill rig to site and is currently drilling the first target. The drill program is designed to test additional areas near surface (see Figure 1) as well as test areas down plunge (see Figure 2) from known high grade zones.

The Property lies within the Abitibi greenstone gold belt, along the Cadillac break, a prolific gold bearing regional structure that has produced 100 million ounces of gold since 1900. Historical drilling on the property prior to IAMGOLD has identified a number of gold zones, including the Calder-Bousquet Zones No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5. Historical drilling has been relatively shallow, down to approximately 250 m).

Selected results from IAMGOLD's 2010 to 2016 drilling programs include:

  • 27.9 g/t Au over 6.5 m (from 140.0 to 146.5 m depth in hole BO-16-56)
  • 29.3 g/t Au over 3.3 m (from 389.0 to 392.3 m depth in hole BO-12-32)
  • 9.6 g/t Au over 16.5 m (from 164.0 to 180.5 m depth in hole BO-11-06)
  • 5.8 g/t Au over 4.4 m (from 135.3 m to 139.7 m depth in hole BO-13-40)

Note: the drilling results referenced above are historical and have not been independently verified and validated by the Company and should not be relied on.

J.C. St-Amour, President and CEO, said "The location of this project along the Cadillac-Break, in the shadow of some prolific producers, is exceptional from an infrastructure, accessibility and prospectivity perspective. Previous drilling on the project has intercepted high grades near surface and we believe the Bousquet-Odyno has been underexplored and offers great exploration potential. We have based this drill program on our interpretation of previous work and are targeting areas which we believe will deliver results and increase our understanding of the mineralized body."

Vanstar Reports Remaining Assay Results from 2021 Drill Program at Nelligan - Confirms Mineralization up to 1.5 km to the West of Resource

Highlight Holes:
Hole NE-21-184 - 20.0 m of 2.02 g/t Au and 10.5 m of 1.11 g/t Au
Hole NE-21-182 - 30.6 m of 1.15 g/t Au
Hole NE-21-176 - 11.8 m of 4.44 g/t Au and 7 m of 2.21 g/t Au and 19.5 m of 1.44 g/t Au

Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV: VSR) (OTCQX: VMNGF) (FSE: 1V8) ("Vanstar", or the "Company") is pleased to announce the remaining assay results from the 2021 diamond drill program consisting of 9,492 meters in 27 holes on the Nelligan joint venture project (IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD"): 75%, Vanstar: 25%) completed by its partner IAMGOLD. The Company is reporting assays from the remaining 14 diamond drill holes totaling 5,232 meters completed in the western extension of the deposit. The 2020 drill program extended the mineralized zone by 700 m beyond the resource that was modelled in 2019. Current results from 2021 drilling, summarized in Table 1 and 2 below, indicate that the mineralization continues further to the west, although the zones appear to be thinning with locally improved grades. Hole NE-21-190, for example, located 1,100 m to the west of the current resource intercepted 9 m grading 3 gt Au and the most western hole (NE-21-188) intercepted 6 m grading 2.63 gt Au, 1.5 km from the 2019 pit shell.

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Global central bank gold reserves top 35,500 metric tons (MT), approximately one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. The vast majority of central bank gold holdings were acquired in the last decade, when national banks became net buyers of the yellow metal.

Central banks purchase gold for a number of reasons: to mitigate risk, to hedge against inflation and to promote economic stability. In its most recent annual survey released in June 2022, the World Gold Council (WGC) said that 61 percent of central bankers expect global gold reserves to increase over the next 12 months. Nearly three-quarters of respondents cited the precious metal’s “long-term store of value” as a guiding factor in gold purchases.

Central banks added 463 MT of gold to their vaults in 2021, signaling a significant turnaround in demand after the 255 MT decade low experienced in 2020.

VIDEO — Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for Gold

Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for Goldyoutu.be

The US Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 basis points last week in its ongoing fight against inflation, amping up its efforts to tame prices and leaving market watchers wondering what's next.

Speaking just ahead of the central bank's meeting, Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management, said usually the Fed starts out hawkish and then backs off. But this time around the opposite is happening.

This is due to various factors, but US President Joe Biden's recent meeting with Fed Chair Jerome Powell is among them — in their discussion, Biden expressed that inflation is the Fed's responsibility.
