VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Solstice Gold Corp. (TSXV: SGC) (“Solstice”, the “Company”, “its”, “we” or “our”) Solstice Gold is pleased to welcome Mike Timmins to its Board of Directors.

Mr. Timmins is a mining executive with over 24 years of technical and corporate development experience at Agnico Eagle, where he was Vice-President of Corporate Development and Placer Dome Inc. He most recently worked for Fury Gold as President and CEO. Mr. Timmins has extensive project experience in acquisitions and numerous strategic investments into the junior mining space including having worked in various operational capacities in the Red Lake camp for Placer Dome. Mr. Timmins is a graduate of Queens University (MBA), the University of British Columbia (M.Sc.) and Bishops University (B.Sc.).

“I am excited to be joining a seasoned team of explorationists and capital market professionals ahead of what I believe to be a very strong next few years for precious metals. The Company is well positioned with prospective, large-scale land positions in two of Canada’s most prolific gold regions, Red Lake and Nunavut. Today’s transformative acquisition of properties and royalties strengthens the investment appeal and provides significant additional potential to shareholders. I look forward to working alongside my fellow Board members and senior management to advance the company’s unique project portfolio,” stated Mike Timmins.

“I'm very pleased to announce the addition of Mike to our Board. He is experienced and successful in capital markets, project management and in the junior exploration and development space. He brings a wealth of experience and talent to Solstice. His extensive experience in the Red Lake camp will also be a great asset as we continue to move our RLX project forward. In addition, his significant background in corporate development, acquisition and evaluation of properties will be a significant asset as we work to unlock the significant value in our transformative acquisition announced earlier today. The Company looks forward to Mr. Timmins contributions on the board and is confident that his experience will further strengthen our team, improve our operations and support the growth of the Company,” said Chairman David Adamson.

About Solstice

Solstice announced September 15, 2021 a transformative acquisition which, at closing, will comprise a portfolio of 86 projects in Ontario and Quebec of which 45 are currently providing cash flow through share and cash options payments and are being actively explored by third parties, 10 have stand alone royalties and a further 30 are available for option and potential additional cash flows. The Company expects pay-back of this acquisition within three years.. As part of the transaction, Solstice buys-back its RLX option agreement in Red Lake which, at closing will be 100% owned and royalty-free. See www.solsticegold.com for additional details. The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and approval of the TSX-V.

During his successful 16 years of exploration in the Red Lake camp, Solstice Chairman David Adamson was a co-award winner for the discovery of the Bateman Gold deposit which was recently acquired by Evolution Mining for C$343 million1. In addition, David was instrumental in the acquisition of many of the Red Lake district properties in the Battle North portfolio that was also acquired by Evolution Mining. In Nunavut, our district scale KGP project covers 886 km2 with certain other rights covering an adjacent 683 km2, all with no underlying option or earn in payments. KGP has seen over $12MM dollars spent on significant field work, identified a 10 km2 gold boulder field and now prepared with multiple drill-ready targets. KGP is located in Nunavut, Canada, only 26 km from Rankin Inlet and approximately 7 km from the Meliadine gold deposits owned by Agnico Eagle Mines Limited.

Rouyn Noranda, Q.C. - TheNewswire - September 24, 2021 - Granada Gold Mine Inc. (TSXV:GGM) (OTC:GBBFF) (Frankfurt:B6D) (the “Company” or “Granada”) announces that it will be extending the expiry date of an aggregate 6,861,806 share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") by two years.  The 6,861,806 Warrants are due to expire on October 18 and November 6, 2021. The expiry date will be extended by two years and the Warrants will now expire on October 18 and November 6, 2023.  All other terms and conditions remain constant.

 

The private placement units were issued at a price of $0.15 per unit and consisted of one common share and one Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.15 per share for a period of three years from closing.  The amendment is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

 

About Granada Gold Mine Inc.

 

Granada Gold Mine Inc. continues to develop and explore its 100% owned Granada Gold Property near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, and is adjacent to the prolific Cadillac Break. The Company owns 14.73 square kilometers of land in a combination of mining leases and claims. The company is currently undergoing a large drill program with 30,000m out of 120,000m complete. The drills are currently paused to provide the technical team with the necessary time to evaluate and assimilate existing data.

 

The Granada Shear Zone and the South Shear Zone contain, based on historical detailed mapping as well as from current and historical drilling, up to twenty-two mineralized structures trending east-west over five and a half kilometers. Three of these structures were mined historically from four shafts and three open pits. Historical underground grades were 8 to 10 grams per tonne gold from two shafts down to 236 m and 498 m with open pit grades from 3.5 to 5 grams per tonne gold.

 

The property includes the former Granada Gold underground mine which produced more than 50,000 ounces of gold at 10 grams per tonne gold in the 1930’s from two shafts before a fire destroyed the surface buildings.  In the 1990’s, Granada Resources extracted a bulk sample (Pit #1) of 87,311 tonnes grading 5.17 g/t Au.  They also extracted a bulk sample (Pit # 2) of 22,095 tonnes grading 3.46 g/t Au.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 24, 2021) - Bravada Gold Corporation (TSXV: BVA) (FSE: BRTN) (the "Company" or "Bravada") reported today that the Company has requested a 30-day extension, subject to TSXV approval, to close the previously announced non-brokered private placement.

The Company announced (August 9th, 2021) that it had closed the first tranche of its previously reported non-brokered private placement by issuing 4,260,000 units at a price of $0.07 per unit for gross proceeds of $298,200. Each unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant exercisable to purchase one additional common share for a period of two years at an exercise price of $0.12 per share.

Net proceeds from the private placement will be used for continued exploration on the Company's 100% owned Wind Mountain Au-Ag project, sustaining fees for the Company's Nevada-based claims, and for working capital.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the units, nor shall there be any sale of the units in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. The units being offered will not be, and have not been, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, a U.S. person.

About Bravada

Bravada is an exploration company with a portfolio of high-quality properties in Nevada, one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world. Bravada has successfully identified and advanced properties with the potential to host high-margin deposits, frequently attracting partners to fund later stages of project development. Bravada's value is underpinned by a substantial gold and silver resource with a positive PEA at Wind Mountain, and the Company has significant upside potential from possible new discoveries at its exploration properties.

Since 2005, the Company signed 32 earn-in joint-venture agreements for its properties with 19 publicly traded companies, as well as a similar number of property-acquisition agreements with private individuals. Bravada currently has 10 projects in its portfolio, consisting of 810 claims for approximately 6,500 ha in two of Nevada's most prolific gold trends. Most of the projects host encouraging drill intercepts of gold and already have drill targets developed. Several videos are available on the Company's website that describe Bravada's major properties, answering commonly asked investor questions.
