Point Roberts, Washington and Delta, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 9, 2021) - Investorideas.com, a global investor news source covering mining and metals stocks releases today's edition of Exploring Mining Podcast, featuring an exclusive interview with Kevin Drover, President, Chairman and CEO of Aurcana Silver Corporation (TSXV: AUN) (OTCQX: AUNFF).

Investorideas.com spoke with Kevin Drover, President, Chairman and CEO of Aurcana Silver Corporation (TSXV: AUN) (OTCQX: AUNFF), who said that the resumption of activity at the company's flagship Revenue-Virginius polymetallic mine in Ouray, Colorado - which initiated commissioning with development ore on August 27, 2021 - puts Aurcana on track for success.

"This brings us back into the group of "producer" again and this is something that we've been wanting to do since I took over Aurcana in mid 2014," Drover said.

A recent press release reported initial assay results from the mine's 1800 drift level, which showed an "average undiluted grade over 78 feet of drift of 54.0 (33.9 diluted to a minimum mining width of 1.5 ft) ounces per ton silver equivalent (AgEq)1 per short ton (ST)." The vein's actual width turned out to be 1.19ft, higher than the modeled width of 0.23 feet, on which Drover commented:

"It bodes very well for what we can expect to mine when we're in the stope itself."

The aforementioned vein is the Virginius vein which currently commands most of the company's attention, but Drover went on to discuss the other veins at Revenue-Virginius.

"We have nine major veins on our property," he said. "We're going to be mining [the Virginius vein] for the next seven years for sure, and probably a lot longer than that. We do have the Terrible vein, the Yellow Rose, the Wheel of Fortune - and all of these veins have all been in production at one time in the past, but we just haven't had the chance to get to them to do a large amount of exploration at this stage. We are doing some work on the Wheel of Fortune, and we hope to be able to get a drilling program completed on that sometime in the not too distant future. But right now our focus is on the Virginius vein, of course, and getting ourselves positioned so that we can get up to full production from that vein."

Drover explained that while Aurcana's original intention to become cash flow positive by September has been delayed, the company is still on track to ramp up production.

"We had originally anticipated being cash flow positive in September, but of course we've been delayed a month," he said. "That delay was caused by congestion on the 1800 level."

"We're looking at October now before we're going to be hitting cash flow positive, but we're pretty certain that October is going to be the month when we will hit our numbers," he said. "We'll get up to 270 tons per day, and be cash flow positive. Over the course of September we're going to be ramping up from about 130 tons per day to about 270 in October.

In the future, in 2022-23, we'll be looking to expand that 270 up toward the 500 tons a day, and get up toward the 6-6.5 million ounce production number."

With activities resumed on the property, Aurcana foresees the possibility of mine life extending past feasibility study projections.

"The Revenue-Virginius mine, as per the feasibility study, has a seven year mine life," Drover said. "We certainly anticipate decades. We still have to do the homework, but we intend to be developing toward the north on our 1800, 1500, and 1200 levels, and we anticipate that the Virginius vein runs another 8,000 feet of strike length. We think we're going to be mining there in excess of 20 years."

Though the company's recent news has been focused on the Revenue-Virginius property, Drover also discussed the status of the company's Shafter-Presidio Silver Project in Texas.

"We are doing some work on the Shafter project," he said. "It's going to be a mine again, it's pure silver. We are doing a new resource estimate on that that we hope to have out soon. We are looking to possibly do a drill program later in this year to expand the resource somewhat, and to get samples for metallurgical testing. Sometime in the first half of 2022 we anticipate initiating a feasibility study, and, pending a positive feasibility study, we would probably be in a position to make a production decision sometime in the mid 2022 to third quarter of 2022."

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.
