Operations Increase Production 12% Quarter over Quarter

Strong Liquidity and Free Cash Flow

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / October 12, 2021 / Jaguar Mining Inc. (“Jaguar” or the “Company”) (TSX:JAG)(OTCQX:JAGGF) today announces interim gold production results for the third quarter of 2021 (“Q3 2021”). Financial results for Q3 2021 will be reported and filed on SEDAR on or before November 15, 2021. All figures are in US Dollars, unless otherwise expressed.

Vern Baker, President and CEO of Jaguar Mining stated: “Production improved to achieve levels near last year´s final quarters. Pilar is on track to produce at plus 12,000 ounces per quarter on a regular basis. Turmalina´s production moved back over 10,000 ounces per quarter matching the best quarters of the last several years. Investment in exploration is beginning to pay off as two projects are moving into the resource definition phase, one is moving into pre-feasibility work, and grass roots efforts on our joint venture tenements have generated multiple targets. The company is well positioned to move ahead with the projects we see potentially adding to our resources and then into our production profile. Positive cash flow from both operations funded our full suite of exploration and growth activities. We foresee a similar quarter in Q4 with additional spend on our growth portfolio.”

Q3 2021 Operating Highlights

  • Consolidated gold production increased 12% quarter on quarter with 22,602 ounces produced compared to 20,212 ounces produced in Q2 2021. Production was lower compared to 24,094 ounces in Q3 2020. While tonnage performance was higher in Q3 2021, lower grades due to sequencing and stoping location resulted in less ounces produced than Q3 2020.
    • Pilar production improved to 12,337 ounces compared to 11,631 ounces produced in Q2 2021.
    • Turmalina production improved to 10,265 ounces compared to 8,581 ounces produced in Q2 2021.
  • Total definition, infill and exploration drilling was on plan at 18,693 metres, which was slightly higher than Q3 2020 at 18,055 metres drilled. Diamond Drilling remains on plan to provide growth in resources and reserves this year.
  • Total development of 2,615 metres for Q3 2021 was up from 2278 meters in Q2 2021 and consistent with Q3 2020 development of 2,701 metres.
  • As of September 30, 2021, the Company had cash of $38 million compared to cash of $34 million on June 30, 2021. During the quarter, the Company paid a dividend of $2.3 million.

The table below summarizes Q3 2021 operating results compared to Q3 2020:

CEO Vern Baker commented on the performance recovery from the first half of the year: “Issues created by the pandemic have moderated or have been mitigated as we demonstrated during the third quarter and expect to continue demonstrating in the fourth quarter. While the company continues utilizing our COVID-19 Action Plan, the operations have adapted to the restrictions, and absenteeism has reduced to manageable levels. As of the beginning of October 93% of the Jaguar workforce had been partially or fully vaccinated. With issues abating from the pandemic, we are very pleased that we were able to continue with our full commitment to Exploration. That commitment has now positioned our exploration and growth teams to work on projects that range from: 1) Project definition at Faina; 2) Inferred conversion to Measured and Indicated within the mines; 3) New resource delineation of new areas; 4) review for re-stating of resources within prior operating zones; and 5) Grass roots development of new targets. All of this work is focused on providing the resource base to fully utilize of our plant capacity.”

Risks and Mitigating Factors

Jaguar is maintaining its social licenses to operate in all sites throughout Brazil and continues to deliver on its ethical and collaborative partnerships with employees, suppliers, local communities and unions. During this COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has formulated a formal COVID-19 Action Plan which has been adopted company-wide. The Action Plan is committed to sustainability while implementing increased health and safety initiatives with all stakeholders, emphasizing the protection of employees and their employment.

COVID-19 remains the largest question mark for all companies. At any time, state and federal government mandates may change and any mandate that would result in the shutdown of operations will affect the Company’s production. As well, the pandemic may impact the availability of our workforce or supplies. Jaguar is not able to predict the consequences of the pandemic over the next several months and hence is unable to project the impact on production at the current time.

Freeman Gold Announces Phase 2 Lemhi Resource Expansion and Beauty Zone Drill Program

Canada NewsWire

Phase 2 – >4,000 m diamond drill program

  • >3,200 metres testing strike extensions, primarily to the east and west of the current resource
  • 400 metre drill hole to test depth extent of gold mineralization at Lemhi
  • 400 metres of exploration drill holes at the Beauty Zone

CANADIAN SECURITIES EXCHANGE: FMAN

VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 27, 2021 /CNW/ – Freeman Gold Corp. (CSE: FMAN) (OTCQB: FMANF) (FSE: 3WU) (“Freeman” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce its Phase 2 diamond drill program at the Lemhi Gold Deposit (“Lemhi“) and the new Beauty Zone (“Beauty Zone“). The proposed >4,000 m drill program focuses on adding near surface, oxide ounces to the recently reported maiden Mineral Resource Estimate on July 8, 2021. Drilling will also test the recently delineated Beauty Zone which lies approximately 600 metres west of Lemhi and host to a number of high-grade gold rock samples and coincident gold soil geochemistry.

“We are embarking on a second phase of diamond drilling focusing on ground (patented mining claims) that gives Freeman the highest probability of adding ounces to our resource base. The on-strike east and west extensions at Lemhi are key as these would provide new ounces within our current conceptual pit outline. As well, the Lemhi deposit has never been tested at depth beyond 286 metres where a number of holes were terminated in gold mineralization. Freeman plans to test mineralization at depth with at least one >400 m drill hole. We are also excited about testing the newly identified high grade Beauty Zone which returned 52 rock samples over 1 gram per tonne (“g/t”) gold (“Au“) and 28 over 10 g/t Au with coincident anomalous gold soil geochemistry,” remarked Paul Matysek, Executive Chairman.

Over 90% of the total drilling is anticipated to occur at Lemhi, while the remaining drilling will test the Beauty Zone. Of the 3,600 metres to be drilled at Lemhi, 3,025 metres are focused on resource expansion on strike down to a maximum depth of 300 metres below surface. These holes will follow up on drill holes from previous campaigns that remain open, such as FG20-24C which returned 0.4 g/t Au over 72 metres on section 429825N. One drill hole will test the depth potential at Lemhi down to 400 metres below surface; the hole will also infill in the shallower portions between drill holes FG20-17C (151m @ 2.5 g/t Au) and 35C (189m @ 0.54 g/t Au). A single infill hole is planned on section 429952N where a gap in the mineralization is present.

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – October 27, 2021 – Phoenix Gold Resources Corp. (TSXV:PXA) (OTC:PGRCF) (Frankfurt:5DE) (“Phoenix Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that Phase 2 diamond drilling has begun on its York Harbour Mine Property (“York Harbour” or the “Property”) in western Newfoundland, Canada. Three drill holes have been completed during the past 10 days of a planned 27-hole diamond drilling program totalling an estimated 4,225 metres.

The on-site project geologist has reported that the latest drill hole YH21-14 intersected semi-massive and massive volcanogenic sulphide (‘VMS’) mineralization from a drilling length of 105 to 120 m.  After geological and geotechnical logging the drill core from holes YH21-13 and -14 will be transported to the Planet X Exploration facilities in Gander for sampling and later shipping to Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario for rush ICP analyses and over-limit assaying.

Photographs of the drill core with the reported massive sulphide mineralization intersected by drill holes YH21-13 and 14 are shown as follows.

The Phase 1 drilling program was carried out from July 28th to August 14th.  This program, the first on the property since Wolfden Resources’ drilling in 2004, successfully validated historical drilling results with 6 of the 9 drill holes intersecting drill-indicated Cyprus-type VMS mineralization in the historical ‘A’, ‘G’ and ‘H’ zones and encountering similar mineralization both along strike and downdip of these zones.  Two diamond drill holes had to be abandoned when they encountered a wide fault zone, and a third hole intersected a section of the 400 Level adit where it lost circulation and was not completed to its intended depth.

At the present time the Company is awaiting the analytical results for 200 of 300 drill core samples from the Phase 1 diamond drilling program.  Selected mineralized intercepts from 4 of the 9 Phase 1 drill holes were reported in the Company’s news release dated October 12th.  A few of those mineralized intercepts that were previously reported for drill holes YH21-04, -06, -08 and –09 are as follows.

The Phase 2 diamond drilling program has been designed to firstly better delineate the known drill-indicated VMS mineralization for future resource estimations and to explore for additional similar mineralization both along strike and downdip.  Historical underground drill holes report a number of massive and semi-massive mineralized intercepts between and along strike of the known zones but without reported assays.  At two of these historical intercepts the latest drill holes YH21-13 and 14 have confirmed significant VMS mineralization.  Thus, the Phase 2 program will include both delineation and exploration drilling.

In addition to the Phase 2 drilling program exploration work on the property has also included re-locating the No. 4 Brook adit and massive sulphide showing situated approximately 1 km from the current drilling on the eastern limb of the folded volcanic sequence which hosts known VMS mineralization.  On October 16th several field personnel visited the site and reported approximately 15 m of massive and semi-massive sulphide mineralization, including pyrite, chalcopyrite and sphalerite, in a sheared zone near the sloughed-in adit.  This showing is currently accessible via a cut trail but will require upgrading for ATV and drill rig access.  A field crew is currently cutting channel samples across the visible mineralization with shipping and analysis to follow.  This showing is scheduled to be drill tested in early 2022.

Consulting mining engineers of Gemtec, based in St Johns, have been commissioned to apply for permitting approval to enter the 400 Level adit, and in the meantime the Company is investigating the use of a lidar drone to survey the adit this year.

The following figures show the proposed locations of the Phase 2 diamond drilling on the York Harbour property.  The red coloured and hatched bodies in Figures 2 and 3 are the two-dimensional, surface-projected images of the drill-indicated VMS mineralization.  The purple hatched body is the surface projection of the 400 Level adit.

About the York Harbour Mine Property

 

The York Harbour Mine Property is located approximately 27 kilometres west of Corner Brook, NL and known to be prospective for its copper-zinc-silver-gold-cobalt massive sulphide deposits. The known mineralization exhibits characteristics consistent with classic mafic-type flow dominated (Cyprus-type) VMS deposits. Similar geological environments and styles of mineralization have formed relatively large copper-zinc deposits elsewhere in Newfoundland at Tilt Cove (9 Mt of between 1% and 12% copper) and in Cyprus at the Mavrovouni mine (15 Mt of 4% copper with zinc and gold); as noted in Messina Minerals Inc. 9th Year Assessment Report (2009).

 

Copper and zinc massive sulphides were first discovered at York Harbour in 1893. Since then a total of 2,134 metres of documented underground drifting and development have been completed for which documentation is available.  Drill core logs and sampling data is available for a total of 19,323 metres of historical drilling that tested eleven lenses or zones of copper-zinc-silver-gold-cobalt massive sulphide mineralization. These zones occur over a 600-metre strike length and many remain open for expansion both along strike and downdip.

 

Most historical exploration and underground development have been concentrated within a 350- metre long segment of a stratigraphic contact between lower and upper basaltic units, and within 150 metres of surface. An overturned synclinal fold is interpreted to extend and repeat the favourable mineralized horizon along the western portion of the property where surface prospects at the No. 4 Brook showing of copper- and zinc-bearing massive sulphides have been discovered and documented in outcrop but have received very little modern exploration attention.
