Green River Gold Corp. Extends the Depth at Its Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium Project and Releases Additional Assay Results from Previous Drilling

Green River Gold Corp. (CSE: CCR) (OTC Pink: CCRRF) (the "Company" or "Green River") is pleased to update the progress at the 2022 exploration drilling program at its Quesnel Nickel/Magnesium project, located 40 kilometers from the City of Quesnel, British Columbia, in the prolific Cariboo Mining District.

The first phase of the 2022 exploration drilling program consists of 3 drill holes, approximately 100 meters each, using a portable Winkie drill purchased by the Company late in 2021. The first hole, DD-22-01, was drilled to a depth of 185 feet before it was discontinued for technical reasons. The plan is to re-enter that hole and drill it to greater depth before the current program is complete. The Company has shifted its efforts to drilling the second hole of the 3-hole program. Once the rest of the snow has melted and ground conditions allow, Green River will also be drilling several other known talc outcroppings using a backpack drill. That part of the program will continue throughout the year and is intended to confirm the extent of the talc occurrence and determine whether the nickel, chromium and magnesium mineralization is consistent throughout. The known talc occurrences extend over a length of 1.4 kilometers. The Company will provide regular drilling updates throughout the year.

VIDEO — Mickey Fulp: I'm Bullish on Physical Gold and Farmland, Exiting Resource Juniors

Mickey Fulp VRIC

With the general markets in turmoil, Mercenary Geologist Mickey Fulp sees few places to turn.

"It's a difficult situation," he said at the recent Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC). "I am very bearish, not necessarily on commodity prices, but on the whole resource space and the ability of companies to explore, develop, produce — there's a variety of factors against that right now."

Those include resource nationalism, socialism, anti-development initiatives and green agendas, Fulp explained. Meanwhile, mining companies are seeing energy and labor costs pushed up by inflation.

Trump and the Gold Standard

Trump and the Gold Standard

The gold standard hasn’t been used in the US since the 1970s, but when Donald Trump was president there was some speculation that he could bring it back.

Rumors that the gold standard could be reinstated during Trump’s presidency, which ran from 2017 to 2021, centered largely on positive comments he made about the idea. Notably, the former US president suggested that it would be “wonderful” to bring back the gold standard, and a number of his advisors were of the same mind — Judy Shelton, John Allison and others also expressed support for the concept.

With Trump now out of office, is the US likely to return to the gold standard? And what would it mean if that happened? Read on to learn what the gold standard is, why it ended, what Trump said about bringing it back — and of course what could happen if it ever came into play again.
