Federal Reserve bank of New York

Like every other Federal reserve bank, they have on a mission only; Inflate the money supply or die trying.

global central bank balance sheet

 

The economic recovery everyone is talking about is pure rubbish. What is going on is that central governments worldwide are flooding the economy with cheap money. Businesses use some of this cheap money to expand their business which means they will hire more people. More workers get hired, and everyone is feeling good because overall spending is also rising. However, remove the hot money, and this house of cards collapses. While many experts might state that all hell will break loose because central bankers will be forced to stem the flow of hot money, that argument, at best, is full of holes.

 

Central bankers know full well that if they pull back, everything will collapse. They will continue to flood the system with money. From time to time, they will then pretend like they are easing off to create the impression that they are worried about inflation and other rubbish. We say rubbish because, as far as they are concerned, the masses are cannon fodder, and they could care less about what happens to them. The overall theme is to destroy the currency or die trying to do so. This process enables the rich to become extremely rich, kills most of the middle class and imprisons the improvised.

Random data on Investing

Many investors are stating they are itchy to jump into the markets; isn’t this bloody amazing, when the markets were crashing last year, and we were telling everyone to buy, they wanted to do the opposite. Now we are stating that its time to hold the gunpowder dry and they want to move in the opposite direction again—a classic replay of the secret desire to lose syndrome in action. Misery loves company, and stupidity simply demands it. The average mindset is wired to lose, so when you feel sure about something check ten times before you get into it, certainty about the markets is probably the best signal that you will get hammered. You buy during times of uncertainty and bank profits during times of certainty. Markets never climb a wall of joy; they climb a wall of worry and plunge down a cliff of Joy.

The madness gripping the bitcoin sector indicates that when this market corrects, it is likely to shed at least 50% from its highs if not more. The Dumb money is now chasing the tail end of the move; they always buy high and sell low. Market Update Jan 10, 2021

This morning, Collective Mining (TSXV:CNL) has announced that is has made a significant grassroot discovery at the Pound target within the San Antonio project. This comes right on the heels of the recent discovery at the Donut target at its Guayabales property. 

One of three targets generated at the San Antonio project, reported assay results are from the recently completed Phase 1 reconnaissance drill program which tested two of these targets. 

Ari Sussman, Executive Chairman of Collective Mining commented in a press release: “The wide and continuous zones of mineralization intersected from surface at Pound are exciting and suggest we are either peripheral to or above a very large porphyry system. It is extremely pleasing that we have made brand new significant discoveries with the initial drill holes into grass root generated targets at both our Guayabales and San Antonio projects. With funding in place through 2022, the Company will become aggressive in the short-term with follow up drilling on our new discoveries and testing newly generated targets across the project portfolio.”

 

Highlights (Tables and Figures 1 to 5)

  • Continuous gold (“Au”), silver (“Ag”) and base metal (copper and molybdenum) mineralization has been intersected from surface, over the full core lengths of two reconnaissance diamond drill holes at Pound as follows:
    • 710 metres at 0.53 g/t gold equivalent from surface including 133 metres at 0.92 g/t gold equivalent from 470 metre depth (SAC-8); and
    • 750 metres at 0.41 g/t gold equivalent from surface including 187 metres at 0.59 g/t gold equivalent from 60 metre depth (SAC-6).
  • Importantly, both drill holes ended in mineralization with copper and molybdenum grades increasing at depth including:
    • 70 metres at 0.12% copper and 89 ppm molybdenum from 681 metre depth (SAC-6); and
    • 133 metres at 0.15% copper and 27 ppm molybdenum from 470 metre depth (SAC-8).
  • Pound mineralization is related to hydrothermal breccia and highly altered, quartz diorite intrusive which have been overprinted by late stage, polymetallic veins. Pound is located within a NE-SW trending corridor, as defined by mineralized breccia and altered intrusive, which is open in all directions and has been mapped to date over a strike length of approximately 1.3 kilometres.

     

  • The alteration system associated with Pound (advanced Argillic litho-cap) is related to the upper and peripheral portions of a porphyry system. The Company is currently reviewing its options for follow up exploration which would include initiating a Phase II diamond drill program and a high-resolution and deep penetrating IP survey as has recently and successfully been undertaken at the Guayabales project.

Geological Details of the San Antonio Project

The San Antonio (“SA”) Project is located in the Middle Cauca Gold Belt (“MCB”), 80 km south of Medellin and 50 km north of Manizales, Department of Caldas, Colombia. The MCB has been the most prolific belt for Miocene aged, porphyry and epithermal vein discoveries within Colombia and multi-million ounce discoveries in recent years include Buriticá, La Colosa, Nueves Chaquiro and Marmato.

The SA covers an area of 3,853 hectares and hosts multiple quartz diorite, diorite intrusive and breccia bodies of Miocene age which intrude basement schists and younger volcano-sedimentary packages.

Three specific grassroots exploration targets have been outlined by surface mapping, sampling, soil geochemistry, geophysical modelling, and shallow scout drilling. These are referred to as the Dollar, COP and Pound targets.

The Pound target is located in the northern portion of the project, is defined by multiple hydrothermal breccia bodies hosted within highly altered diorite and quartz diorite intrusive and overprinted by late stage, polymetallic veins. This zone of altered intrusive and breccia bodies trends NE-SW and has been mapped for a strike length of plus 1.3 kilometres. The zone is still open to the NE and SW. Outcrop exposures on the southern border of this target area include epithermal vein systems within a preserved lithocap of advanced argillic alteration which is superimposed on hydrothermal breccia bodies which grades laterally and downwards into intermediate argillic alteration assemblages. These rocks are interpreted to reflect preservation of the shallow levels of the porphyry system. The initial two reconnaissance diamond drill holes, SAC-6 and SAC-8, were drilled to respective downhole depths of 750 metres and 710 metres and intersected various hydrothermal breccia (pyrite matrix), altered quartz diorite intrusive and late-stage polymetallic veins. All the rock units have been hydrothermally altered with an earlier sericitic event overprinted by a strong, advanced argillic phase with various aluminosilicates. At depth, various diorite phases display disseminations and aggregates of chalcopyrite and molybdenite in contact with large blocks of metamorphic schist. The target remains open in all directions and further work is envisaged and will commence with a deep penetrating, high-resolution, induced polarization survey down to minimum depths of 900m below surface followed by a Phase II expanded diamond drilling program. Exploration targets include the mineralized breccia and a porphyry system postulated to occur below the lithocap.

The COP target is located 800 metres south of Pound and is defined by highly anomalous molybdenum (8 ppm to 108 ppm) and gold (up to 2.74 g/t) in soils in association with altered diorite porphyry and quartz veinlets over an area of 650 metres x 350 metres. The surface expression of the COP target is coincident with geophysical anomalies, at 200-300 metres depth which include a positive magnetic anomaly and IP chargeability and resistivity highs. COP has not been tested, other than a single historical borehole drilled just south of the target area, returned an intercept of 99 metres at 0.42 g/t gold and 4.9 g/t silver within unmineralized country rocks partially intruded by mineralized porphyry quartz veins at a depth of 608 meter downhole. The mineralization encountered in the drill-hole is interpreted to be leakage from the COP target directly to the north.

The Dollar target is located 400 metres south of COP. At surface various outcrop of quartz diorite porphyry host stockwork and sheeted quartz-magnetite vein systems associated with disseminated pyrite covering a 500-metre radius. Shallow scout drilling (6 holes) to cover the target area, identified the main mineralized porphyry. Holes SAC-1 to SAC-5 and SAC-9 returned gold intercepts of 0.1 to 0.3 g/t over various angled intercepts of 100 metres to 600 metres length within or across the various outcrops of the mineralized stockwork system. Based on the shallow intercepts a deeper hole was drilled into the mineralized stockwork and returned the intercepts outlined in Table 2 below. Gold, copper and molybdenum grades improve with depth and further deeper drilling is warranted, particularly as the project area is located approximately 300 metres above an accessible valley floor.

** a 0.1 g/t AuEq cut-off grade was employed with no more than 10% internal dilution. True widths are unknown, and grades are uncut.

The San Antonio project benefits from favorable topography with approximately 600 vertical metres of elevation change from the mountain peaks to the various flat lying valleys. Additionally, the topography is not overly steep, lending itself to multiple potential infrastructure development scenarios should an economic deposit be discovered in the future.

Equinox Gold Corp. (TSX: EQX) announced today the groundbreaking for the construction of the Greenstone gold mine in Ontario. The mine is being developed in a 60-40 partnership with Orion Mine Finance Group.

The initial capital cost is expected to be $1.23 billion, including $50 million spent to date and a $177 million contingency budget. It is estimated that 10% of the construction will happen for the rest of 2021, 40% in 2022, 35% in 2023, and the remaining 15% in 2024. The mining firm plans to finance its attributable portion of the capital expenditure through its existing treasury worth $330 million as of June 2021, cash flow from its producing mines, and a $400 million revolving credit facility.

Greenstone mine is reported to have an initial mine life of 14 years and total gold production of 5.05 million ounces. For the first five years, the average annual production is estimated to be 400,000 gold ounces, then it becomes 360,000 gold ounces annually for the rest of the mine’s life.

The mining is expected to start in Q4 2022 and the first gold pour is targeted in H1 2024.

Equinox Gold last traded at $9.86 on the TSX.
