KELOWNA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 12, 2021 / Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSXV:DMI), (OTCQB:DMIFF), (FRA:DC3A), ("Diamcor" or, the "Company") announced today the delivery of 2,521.17 carats of rough diamonds for the Company's first tender and sale of its current quarter ending December 31, 2021. The total carats delivered for this initial tender are in line with Company expectations, and the first since the Company's recent completion of the phase one upgrade objectives at the Company's Krone Endora at Venetia Project (the "Project"). Further refinements, as well as efforts on a larger phase two upgrade, will continue throughout the quarter. The Company remains confident the full potential of these upgrades will be realized and operating costs on a per ton basis will continue to improve due to reductions in plant consumables and increases in operational efficiencies at the Project. The Company expects to complete two additional tenders prior to the end of the current quarter and provide updates on the results in due course over the coming weeks.

LD MICRO - Main Event Conference

The Company also announces that it will be participating in the LD Micro Main Event conference from October 12 - 14th at the Luxe Sunset Bel Air in Los Angeles, CA. The LD Micro Main Event has become the preeminent convention for the most influential people, analysts, and investors in the small-cap world. Diamcor President and CEO, Dean Taylor, will be presenting on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, and hosting one-on-one meetings throughout the conference. Interested parties not attending the conference in person can visit the LD Micro website at to register and listen to company presentations virtually.

"We look forward to the return of the live, in person LD Micro Main Event Conference after a two year delay associated with COVID-19", stated Mr. Dean Taylor, Diamcor CEO. "The timing of this event provides us with a perfect opportunity to meet with various Company stakeholders and industry participants and discuss the growth objectives underway, our efforts to increase processing volumes, recoveries, and revenues, as well as our plans for exploration efforts on the larger areas of the Project in 2022".

Diamcor has established a long-term strategic alliance with world famous luxury retailer Tiffany & Co. and is now in the final stages of developing the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project co-located with De Beer's flagship Venetia mine.

About the Tiffany & Co. Alliance

The Company has established a long-term strategic alliance and first right of refusal with Tiffany & Co. Canada, a subsidiary of world famous New York based Tiffany & Co., to purchase up to 100% of the future production of rough diamonds from the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project at then current prices to be determined by the parties on an ongoing basis.

About Krone-Endora at Venetia

In February 2011, Diamcor acquired the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project from De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited, consisting of the prospecting rights over the farms Krone 104 and Endora 66, which represent a combined surface area of approximately 5,888 hectares directly adjacent to De Beers' flagship Venetia Diamond Mine in South Africa. On September 11, 2014, the Company announced that the South African Department of Mineral Resources had granted a Mining Right for the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project encompassing 657.71 hectares of the Project's total area of 5,888 hectares. The Company has also submitted an application for a mining right over the remaining areas of the Project. The deposits which occur on the properties of Krone and Endora have been identified as a higher-grade "Alluvial" basal deposit which is covered by a lower-grade upper "Eluvial" deposit. The deposits are proposed to be the result of the direct-shift (in respect to the "Eluvial" deposit) and erosion (in respect to the "Alluvial" deposit) of material from the higher grounds of the adjacent Venetia Kimberlite areas. The deposits on Krone-Endora occur in two layers with a maximum total depth of approximately 15.0 metres from surface to bedrock, allowing for a very low-cost mining operation to be employed with the potential for near-term diamond production from a known high-quality source. Krone-Endora also benefits from the significant development of infrastructure and services already in place due to its location directly adjacent to the Venetia Mine.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 15, 2021 / Sassy Resources Corporation ("Sassy" or the "Company") (CSE:SASY)(FSE:4E7)(OTCQB:SSYRF) is pleased to announce…

Share this article:

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 15, 2021 / Sassy Resources Corporation ("Sassy" or the "Company") (CSE:SASY)(FSE:4E7)(OTCQB:SSYRF) is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has approved the dividend spinout distribution (the "Spinout") to its shareholders of an aggregate of 8,833,333 common shares (the "Gander Shares") in the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Gander Gold Corporation ("Gander"). This number of Gander Shares represents the settlement of 100% of the debt outstanding between Gander and Sassy associated with the acquisition of the Company's Newfoundland exploration properties.

The Company currently has 47,537,506 common shares (the "Sassy Shares") issued and outstanding. Accordingly, the planned dividend distribution of 8,833,333 Gander shares would represent a ratio of one (1) Gander share for every 5.3816 Sassy shares owned by a Sassy shareholder as of the record date of February 1, 2022, or alternatively 0.1858 Gander shares for every one (1) Sassy share owned as of the record date. The final spinout ratio is subject to any changes to the Sassy share structure between the date of this announcement and the final record date for the dividend distribution, along with the approval of Gander's imminent application to list on a Canadian stock exchange.

Sassy is in the final stages of preparing the application to list Gander on a Canadian stock exchange. Upon listing, Gander is expected to have 71,395,556 Gander Shares issued and outstanding, with nil share purchase warrants outstanding. Following execution and completion of the Spinout, Sassy will maintain ownership of 35,330,556 Gander Shares, representing approximately 49.5% ownership of Gander. Eric Sprott will beneficially own 10,666,667 Gander Shares, representing approximately 15% ownership.

Comments From Mr. Mark Scott, Sassy President & CEO

"The planned dividend spinout of over 8.8 million Gander shares to our Sassy shareholders represents the first quantifiable delivery of value to our shareholders resulting from our strategic early move into Newfoundland and should represent a material premium to Sassy's share price.

"We have been very effective at managing Sassy's share structure as well as Gander's while building for our investors a compelling portfolio of grassroots properties in Newfoundland covering 2,257 sq. km (8 separate projects), one of the largest land packages on the island. Initial work has been very promising with Gander Gold on track in management's view to become a leading and well-financed Newfoundland discovery opportunity when it comes to trade. I wish to congratulate the Board for their efforts and thank our shareholders for their ongoing support as we work to build sustainable shareholder value in both Sassy and Gander."

Moving Forward

Further updates on the listing of Gander and the spinout will be provided as the Gander listing application proceeds and the record date for the dividend distribution of Gander Shares approaches.

Results are pending from the Company's ongoing early-stage exploration program across its extensive project areas in Newfoundland. Results are also pending from the recently completed 2021 field exploration program, including diamond drilling, at the Company's 100%-owned 146 sq. km Foremore Project in Northwest B.C.'s prolific Eskay Camp.

Gran Colombia Declares Monthly Dividend to Be Paid on November 15, 2021; Renews Normal Course Issuer Bid for Its Common Shares

TORONTO, Oct. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (“Gran Colombia” or the “Company”) (TSX: GCM, OTCQX: TPRFF) announced today…

Share this article:

TORONTO, Oct. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (“Gran Colombia” or the “Company”) (TSX: GCM, OTCQX: TPRFF) announced today that its Board of Directors has declared the next monthly dividend of CA$0.015 per common share will be paid on November 15, 2021 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 29, 2021.

Renewal of Normal Course Issuer Bid

Gran Colombia also announced today that it has filed with the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”), and the TSX has accepted, a notice of intention to make a normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB”) for its common shares trading under the symbol GCM (the “Shares”). The NCIB will allow the Company to purchase for cancellation up to 9,570,540 Shares of the Company over a 12-month period, representing 10% of the current issued and outstanding Shares in the public float as of October 6, 2021. As at October 6, 2021, the Company had a total of 98,485,775 Shares issued and outstanding.

The NCIB will commence on October 20, 2021 and terminate on October 19, 2022, or such earlier date on which purchases under the NCIB have been completed. Purchases of Shares under the NCIB will be made through the facilities of the TSX or other alternative Canadian trading systems at the market price of the Shares at the time of acquisition. The average daily trading volume of the Shares for the six months ended September 30, 2021 was 345,204 Shares. Daily purchases will be limited to 86,301 Shares, other than block purchase exceptions. Shares purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled. Pursuant to a previous notice of intention to conduct a normal course issuer bid, under which the Company sought and received approval from the TSX to purchase up to 5,934,811 Shares, the Company purchased 1,536,100 Shares for cancellation through the facilities of the TSX at a volume weighted average trading price of $5.93 per Share during the period from September 4, 2020 to September 3, 2021.

Gran Colombia has entered into an automatic share purchase plan with a broker in connection with the NCIB to allow for the purchase of Shares during certain pre-determined blackout periods. Outside of these pre-determined blackout periods, Shares will be purchased at the discretion of senior management of Gran Colombia.

Gran Colombia believes that the Shares may from time to time trade in a price range that does not adequately reflect the value of the Shares in relation to its activities and future prospects. Accordingly, the Board of Directors of Gran Colombia has determined that the repurchase of Shares pursuant to the NCIB presently constitutes an appropriate use of financial resources and would be in the best interest of the Company’s shareholders.

About Gran Colombia Gold Corp.

In Colombia, the Company is currently the largest underground gold and silver producer with several mines in operation at its high-grade Segovia Operations.
