TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 16, 2021 / Anaconda Mining Inc. ("Anaconda" or the "Company") (TSX:ANX) (OTCQX:ANXGF) is pleased to announce assay results from a recent geotechnical and environmental drill program at Stog'er Tight (the "Stog'er Tight Drill Program") to support an enhanced Environmental Registration document to be submitted to regulators in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Stog'er Tight Drill Program included 704 metres of diamond drilling in eight (8) holes for geotechnical purposes to support detailed pit design as well as 123.5 metres of diamond drilling in four (4) holes for water well installations to obtain relevant environmental data to support ongoing environmental assessment work (Exhibit A). Despite their primary purpose, several of these holes encountered mineralization including the following highlights (see Table 1 below for further details):

  • 1.81 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold over 30.0 metres (56.0 to 86.0 metres), including 10.00 g/t gold over 1.0 metre in diamond drill hole BN-21-496;
  • 0.98 g/t gold over 6.0 metres (47.5 to 53.5 metres) in diamond drill hole BN-21-498; and
  • 0.54 g/t gold over 10.0 metres (51.0 to 61.0 metres) in diamond drill hole BN-21-497.

Also at Point Rousse, Anaconda recently conducted 795 metres of delineation drilling in 24 holes at the Argyle Gold Mine (the "Argyle Drill Program") in advance of the next phase of mining to better outline the geometry of the deepest portions of the Mineral Reserve. This drilling encountered numerous mineralized intersections and resulted in local modifications to the deposit geometry. The Argyle Drill Program included the following highlights (see Table 2 below for further details):

  • 5.72 g/t gold over 7.0 metres (30.0 to 37.0 metres) in diamond drill hole AE-21-184;
  • 2.16 g/t gold over 13.0 metres (66.0 to 79.0 metres) in diamond drill hole AE-21-185;
  • 5.25 g/t gold over 6.0 metres (28.0 to 34.0 metres) in diamond drill hole AE-21-169; and
  • 1.04 g/t gold over 8.0 metres (29.0 to 37.0 metres) in diamond drill hole AE-21-174.

Selected intersections from holes BN-21-496 to BN-21-507 from infill drilling at Stog'er Tight are shown in Table 1 below and selected intersection from holes AE-21-169 to AE-21-192 from delineation drilling at Argyle are shown in Table 2 below. The results of both the Stog'er Tight and Argyle Drill Programs will be used to update the Mineral Resources and Reserves at Point Rousse, anticipated in Q4 2021.

"As we continue to mine at Argyle and move forward with development work at Stog'er Tight, we see an opportunity for optimization and continued mining operations at Point Rousse in the coming years. The advancement of geotechnical and environmental work at Stog'er Tight allows for the optimization of the Mineral Resource and open pit design. Similarly, the delineation drill results at Argyle have provided an opportunity to better optimize the pit design and mining techniques. With this information we have commenced preparing an updated Mineral Resource and Reserve estimate for our Point Rousse operation, that includes a new Mineral Resource for Stog'er Tight, supporting potential extended life of the mining operations. At the same time, we continue to develop other exploration targets throughout Point Rousse and Tilt Cove and are actively drilling a 6,000 metre diamond drill program and completing a 100-line kilometre geophysical survey to test the broader prospectivity of the Point Rousse Project."

~ Kevin Bullock, President and CEO, Anaconda Mining Inc.

The Stog'er Tight Deposit is located three (3) kilometres east of the Pine Cove Mill, adjacent to existing road networks, and has been defined over a strike length of 1,250 metres to date. Anaconda produced a total of 17,102 ounces of gold from 349,942 tonnes of ore from the Stog'er Tight Mine between June 2018 and January 2020. Gold from Stog'er Tight was recovered through the Pine Cove Mill with an average head grade of 1.75 g/t gold at an overall recovery of approximately 87%.

Preliminary environmental studies have been initiated at the expanded Stog'er Tight Deposit, including environmental baseline work associated with Camp Pond, which is anticipated to be impacted by potential development west of the Stog'er Tight Mine. The Company also continues to gather baseline data, including the installation of water monitoring wells, to support the submission of an enhanced Environmental Registration document to regulators in the fourth quarter of 2021. In addition, fish and fish habitat data is being collected to support the development of a Fisheries Act Authorization application and a fish habitat offsetting plan, which is also expected to be submitted in the fourth quarter.

THIS NEWS RELEASE IS INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION IN CANADA ONLY AND IS NOT AUTHORIZED FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pure Gold Mining Inc. (TSXV:PGM LSE:PUR) (“PureGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) announced on October 5, 2021.

Pursuant to the Offering, the Company issued a total of 3,307,619 units of the Company (the “Units”) to AngloGold Ashanti Limited (“AngloGold”) at a price of C$1.05 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately C$3,473,000. The Offering brings AngloGold’s ownership percentage in the Company to 14.96% of the issued and outstanding common shares on a non-diluted basis upon completion of the Offering.

Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a “Unit Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant is transferrable and entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company until April 15, 2023, at a price of C$1.36.

Due to its share ownership, AngloGold is considered a “related party” of Pure Gold and, accordingly, the Offering constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The Offering was exempt from the minority approval requirement of Section 5.6 and the formal valuation requirement of Section 5.4 of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Offering, nor the fair market value of the consideration of the Offering, exceeded 25% of Pure Gold’s market capitalization. A material change report in connection with the Offering will be filed less than 21 days before the closing of the Offering. This shorter period was reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the Company wished to complete the Offering in a timely manner.

The net proceeds received from the Offering will be used to fund the continued ramp up of operations at its 100%-owned PureGold Mine Project located in Red Lake, Ontario, underground drilling and development of the high-grade 8 zone, and for general corporate purposes. The securities issued under the Offering have a hold period of four months and one day from closing, expiring on February 16, 2022.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold to U.S. Persons (as such term is defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, or an exemption from such registration is available.

Thunder Bay, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 15, 2021) - Benton Resources Inc. (TSXV: BEX) ("Benton") and Sokoman Minerals Corp. (TSXV: SIC) (OTCQB: SICNF) ("Sokoman") (jointly, "the Companies" or singularly a "Joint Venture Party") are pleased to announce that they have entered into mutual participation agreements (the "Participation Agreements") that govern cost reimbursement between the Companies relating to certain option agreements entered into by each of Benton and Sokoman on behalf of their strategic exploration alliance announced on May 20, 2021. Pursuant to the strategic alliance the Companies agreed to share, on a 50/50 basis, exploration costs and costs associated with the exercise of property options entered into by either party on behalf of the strategic alliance. In cases where one of the Joint Venture Parties enters into an option agreement that requires shares to be issued to a third party optionor the other Joint Venture Party will contribute its 50% of the costs by reimbursing the first company for 50% of the option payments. Where common shares are required to be issued as part of the option payments in order to ensure that the costs are equally divided the monetary value of such shares will be calculated and the Joint Venture Party that did not enter into the option agreement will issue such number of shares to the Joint Venture Party that did enter into the option agreement that have a monetary value equal to 50% of the value of the shares issued by the Joint Venture Party that has entered into the option agreement.

Sokoman and Benton have on behalf of the strategic alliance, each entered into two property option agreements that have previously been announced that are being contributed to the strategic alliance and governed by the Participation Agreements. The Participation Agreements simply formalize and clarify what cash payments and share issuances are required to be made by the Joint Venture Party that did not directly enter into a particular option agreement in order to reimburse the Joint Venture Party that did enter into the option agreement.

  1. Benton Participation Agreement

    1. Sokoman entered into an option agreement that provides it with the right to acquire a 100% interest in a mineral license consisting of seven mineral claims (the "Lewis Option") lying within the Grey River Gold Property. In order to exercise the Lewis Option Sokoman is required to make four cash payments of $10,000 each by June 15, 2024, and issue four tranches of shares of 50,000 each by June 15, 2024 (see Sokoman news release dated July 13, 2021). In accordance with the terms of the Benton Participation Agreement in order to contribute its 50% of the costs of the Lewis Option Benton will, to the extent that Sokoman continues to exercise the Lewis Option, reimburse Sokoman by: a) paying to Sokoman 50% of the cash payments made by Sokoman to exercise the Lewis Option ($20,000); and b) issuing to Sokoman such number of shares of Benton having a value equal to 50% of the value of each tranche of shares Sokoman issues to exercise the Lewis Option (292,208 Benton shares - 100,000 Sokoman shares at a floor price of $0.45 = $45,000 / $0.154 floor price for Benton shares).

    2. Sokoman entered into an option agreement that provides it with the right to acquire a 100% interest (subject to a 1.5% NSR, two-thirds of which may be purchased for $1 million) in three licenses consisting of four mineral claims (the "G2B Option") lying within the Grey River Gold Property. In order to exercise the G2B Option Sokoman is required to make three annual cash payments of $10,000 each and issue three tranches of shares of 50,000 each (see Sokoman news release dated July 13, 2021). In accordance with the terms of the Benton Participation Agreement in order to contribute its 50% of the costs of the G2B Option Benton will, to the extent that Sokoman continues to exercise the G2B Option, reimburse Sokoman by: a) paying to Sokoman 50% of the cash payments made by Sokoman to exercise the G2B Option ($15,000); and b) issuing to Sokoman such number of shares of Benton having a value equal to 50% of the value of each tranche of shares Sokoman issues to exercise the G2B Option (219,156 Benton shares - 75,000 Sokoman shares at a floor price of $0.45 = $33,750 / $0.154 floor price for Benton shares).

  2. Sokoman Participation Agreement
