MONTREAL, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MONARCH MINING CORPORATION (“Monarch” or the “Corporation”) (TSX: GBAR) (OTCQX: GBARF) is pleased to provide an update on the restart of operations at the Beaufor Mine and Beacon Mill, scheduled to begin in the coming weeks in preparation for the start of mining in 2022. Rehabilitation work at the two sites is being carried out by some 30 employees and more than 120 regular and part-time contractor personnel.

The following is a summary of the work done to date at the Beaufor Mine:

  • Rehabilitation of 900 metres of rail track including four new switches on level 20 to allow for a sustained maximum haulage rate between the Q zone and the shaft.
  • Rehabilitation of the main ramp from level 20 to the Q zone on level 132, which is needed for development and production to resume.
  • Recommissioning of four R1300 LHD loaders, three 30-tonne trucks, including the AD30, and two 15-tonne trucks.
  • Dismantling of the surface ventilation system at the Pascalis shaft and reassembly near the old Beaufor #4 shaft to improve the ventilation system in the Q, W and 350 zones.
  • Installation of a 25-kV electrical system to power the future development of the W zone and the new ventilation system.
  • Rehabilitation of the surface ore bins to make them safer.

At the Beacon mill, major work has been undertaken since the mill was last commissioned in 2014:

  • The administrative offices, drying rooms, warehouses and electrical room have been renovated.
  • The electrical distribution system and mill’s internal piping have been replaced.
  • The main crusher has been dismantled to allow for a complete overhaul.
  • The pumping system has been improved.
  • The mill’s internal conveyor system has been inspected, with major repairs made to the main conveyor under the grizzly and the outside rock breaker.

“This work is part of our estimated budget of approximately $12.5 million to bring the Beaufor Mine and Beacon Mill back into operation and will allow our employees to work more efficiently and safely,” said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and CEO of Monarch. “In addition, as we have said before, we will now be able to extract gold from two sources, the shaft and the ramp, instead of just one, which should increase the mine’s capacity. In terms of our production schedule, we expect to complete the mine and mill preparation work at the end of the fourth quarter.”

“In terms of exploration at the Beaufor Mine, we have four underground drills currently operating on site and the 42,500-metre drilling program is approximately 85% complete. We are extremely pleased with the results obtained to date and are looking forward to seeing what the next drill results will show,” added Mr. Lacoste.

The technical and scientific content of this press release has been reviewed and approved by Christian Tessier, P.Geo., the Corporation’s qualified person under National Instrument 43-101.

Brascan Enters into Option Agreement to Acquire Black Cat Property

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 7, 2021) – Brascan Gold Inc. (CSE: BRAS) ("Brascan" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that…

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 7, 2021) – Brascan Gold Inc. (CSE: BRAS) (“Brascan” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement (the “Agreement“) with Jason Flight, Wayne Hurley, Kenneth Lewis, Garland Rice, Peter Hurley and Daniel Jacobs (collectively, the “Optionors“) to acquire a 100% interest in the Black Cat property located 40 km south of the town of Baie Verte, Newfoundland (the “Property“). The Property contains 56 mineral claims and has two licences. The Property is near Brascan’s Middle Arm Fault property, which Brascan optioned on November 4, 2021. The Property is accessible by road and is within 100 km of the Nugget gold/copper milling facility. The option claims are near the northern boundary of Maritime Resources Corp.‘s Whisker Valley project, and Maritime’s past-producer Hammerdown gold deposit, which is described in some detail in Maritime’s PEA (McCracken et al., 2020).[1]

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is ranked among the top 10 mining jurisdictions world-wide by the Fraser Institute. The Baie Verte district in northwestern Newfoundland boasts excellent infrastructure reflecting its long mining history including a skilled workforce, a deep water port facility at Pine Cove, gold milling facilities at Pine Cove and Nugget Pond, a local assay laboratory, local mining and drilling contractors, high power transmission lines, a regional airport (100 km from the community of Baie Verte) and local hospitals, schools, hotels and supplies.

The Property covers a portion of the regionally significant Middle Arm Fault, which extends more than 15 km to the southwest, where it is spatially associated with several gold showings, as reported on the Newfoundland and Labrador Geoscience Atlas (https://geoatlas.gov.nl.ca/Default.htm). An initial round of sampling on the Property in 2020 resulted in 17 of 35 samples having the sulphite content of the quartz veins similar to the nearby Whisker Valley property. Given the strong gold content in the soil and till anomalies, it is likely that gold exists near the surface and within the mineralized quartz vein system of the Property.

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company may acquire a 100% interest in the Property by: (i) making an aggregate cash payment to the Optionors of $168,000; (ii) issuing an aggregate of 670,000 common shares of the Company to the Optionors; and (iii) incurring an aggregate of $725,000 in exploration expenditures on the Property all prior to the fourth anniversary of the date of the Agreement. The share issuances, cash payments and exploration commitments gradually increase over the term of the Agreement. The Optionors will retain a 2.5% net smelter royalty, 1.5% of which may be purchased by Brascan for $2,000,000.
