Australian dollar gold price at all-time high – Mining Journal

Mining Journal 18th June

The gold price was on the rise today as geopolitical tensions remain an undercurrent and the market ponders the likelihood of a rate cut at this week’s US Federal Reserve meeting.

The Australian spot gold price rose to a fresh all-time high today and was worth A$1,962.60 an ounce at the time of writing.

The US dollar gold price was near a 14-month high at US$$1,341.89/oz, having been close to $1,360/oz on Friday.

Market futures were mixed after most key indices closed higher yesterday.

Gold miners were unsurprisingly gaining in afternoon Australian trade.

Western Australian producer Saracen Mineral Holdings (ASX: SAR) was up more than 3% in late trade.

Newmont Goldcorp (NYSE: NEM) had closed up 0.8% in New York yesterday.

It had announced it was ramping up its Peñasquito mine in Mexico after an illegal blockade was lifted and a government-sponsored dialogue process established, with the company saying it was committed to a fair resolution of contract and water availability issues.

The gold-heavy Toronto metals and mining stocks closed about 1.3% higher yesterday.

Dual-listed Alacer Gold (TSX: ASR; ASX: AQG) gained 10.2% in Toronto to close at C$4.43 and is up almost 76% year-to-date.

It had declared commercial production at its Çöpler sulphide expansion project last week and a one-third increase in oxide gold production for 2019 at its flagship operation in Turkey.

Macquarie reinstated coverage of Alacer with a recommendation of outperform and a price target of $4.50, Bloomberg noted.

 

Nevada’s Walker Lane Gold Trend Ripe for Discovery – Gold Investing News – Tertiary Minerals #TYM

Some of the world’s most important gold mining districts are found in Nevada’s three major northwest trending belts: the Carlin trend, the Cortez trend and the Walker Lane trend.

Together these three trends have contributed the most to the nearly 170 million ounces of gold produced in Nevada between 1835 and 2018. While Nevada’s long gold mining history and prolific production may lead some to believe all the low-hanging fruit has been picked, there still exists plenty of upside and the potential for new discoveries in the Walker Lane trend.

Nevada: Where the world goes for gold

Nevada ranks as the world’s third top mining jurisdiction and fifth largest gold producer. The state owes its top dog status to its immense mineral wealth, well-established infrastructure and stable regulatory environment. Transparent, easy-to-navigate regulations and permitting processes, and an attractive tax regime with a low net profits tax and no income tax are all very inviting for the world’s gold miners. Global giants Newmont Mining (NYSE:NEM), Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX,NYSE:GOLD) and Kinross Gold (TSX:K,NYSE:KGC) all have producing mines in the state.

Walker Lane gold trend: Future of gold mining in Nevada

The Carlin trend may have generated the most heat in the Nevada desert over the past decades when it comes to gold, but most of the best properties are already controlled by majors Newmont, Barrick and Kinross. The high cost of exploring for the often blind and deeper targets that remain on the trend is a big turn off for junior explorers. Today’s mineral exploration companies looking for the next big play are staking claims in one of the state’s other prominent gold trends, the Walker Lane, which offers less expensive exploration with the added upside of plenty of blue sky potential in a relatively underexplored landscape with known high-grade potential.

The north-west trending Walker Lane, one of the largest structural lineaments in Nevada, has played an integral role in the history of the state beginning with the 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode, representing 8.5 million ounces of gold and about 400 million ounces of silver. The lure of all that wealth led to the gold rush that would eventually build up Nevada’s population enough to earn statehood in 1864.

Unlike the Carlin trend, where most mines are producing ore of less than a gram of gold per tonne, Walker Lane stands out with exceptional high-grade assays. In fact, Walker Lane hosts a number of high-grade districts including Tonopah and Goldfield. Also in the region is Kinross’ Round Mountain mine, which produced approximately 437,000 ounces of gold equivalent in 2017. The giant gold mine’s current reserves plus past production total 29 million ounces of gold. Other prolific mines in the area include Mineral Ridge with 4 million ounces of gold and 6.4 million ounces of silver; and Bullfrog with 3.7 million ounces of gold and 4.6 million ounces of silver.

Promising projects in the Walker Lane gold trend

A few recent successes at Walker Lane include Northern Empire’s US$90 million acquisition by Coeur Mining (NYSE:CDE) in 2018 on the basis of the Sterling gold project, which hosts four distinct deposits including a fully-permitted, open-pit mine set to become one of the highest-grade heap leach mines in the Western United States.

Corvus Gold (TSX:KOR,OTCQX:CORVF) is focused on its near-term North Bullfrog and Mother Lode gold-silver mining projects near Beatty, Nevada. Results from exploration drilling at Mother Lode continue to show high potential for expanding the deposit and raising the possibility of identifying a much larger mineralization system. Corvus’ success has attracted C$2 million in additional funding for resource expansion programs at both Mother Lode and North Bullfrog.

Newrange Gold’s (TSXV:NRG,OTC Pink:NRGOF) Pamlico gold project represents another high-grade, district-scale opportunity on the Walker Lane trend. The project includes the historic Pamlico Mines on Pamlico Ridge, together with the Central, Sunset, Good Hope, Gold Bar and various unnamed mines and prospects. The 1,670-hectare property has been in private hands since 1896 with less than half of 1 percent of the property ever touched by a modern exploration drill. Newrange acquired Pamlico in 2016 and since then has launched an aggressive exploration campaign which has resulted in numerous drill intercepts of near surface oxide gold mineralization to 340 grams gold per metric tonne.

Newrange is advancing the project toward a resource estimate. In February 2019, the company completed preliminary metallurgical testing which achieved gold extractions as high as 97.1 percent and calculated head grades as high as 79.4 grams gold per metric tonne. These grades were substantially higher than what was originally indicated by drill sample assays, suggesting the potential for a much larger and potentially heap leachable gold system at Pamlico.

Brand Communications – Tertiary Minerals (AIM: TYM) announced that it had secured exploration rights and an option to purchase a group of claims in the Pyramid Mining District of Nevada on May 28th 2019. The project is located 25 miles northwest of Reno and is easily accessible by sealed highway. Full details here

Takeaway

The recent discoveries and continued resource expansion along Nevada’s Walker Lane gold trend is a great example of what the state’s mineral largess still has to offer for gold exploration companies and their shareholders.

Tertiary Minerals #TYM – New Project Acquisition in the Pyramid Mining District of Nevada, USA.

Tertiary Minerals plc is pleased to advise that it has secured exploration rights and an option to purchase a group of claims in the Pyramid Mining District of Nevada. The project is located 25 miles northwest of Reno and is easily accessible by sealed highway.

Pyramid Project Highlights:

  • 20-year lease secured over group of 9 patented claims with option to purchase (subject to underlying royalties).
  • Additional 25 mining claims staked to cover additional targets along strike.
  • Located in productive Walker Lane porphyry copper/epithermal gold belt.
  • Limited historical exploration (1989-90) has defined priority epithermal vein drill target:
  • Drill hole PYR 9 – intersected visible gold and assayed 1.52m grading 17.8 g/t Au from 94.5m down hole
  • PYR 9 ended in 1.52m grading 2.6 g/t Au at 115.8m depth.
  • PYR 9 was only drill hole to effectively test a cohesive 750m long open-ended gold-mercury-arsenic soil geochemical anomaly.
  • Claims contain a number of untested epithermal veins and stockwork target zones – 43 widespread surface samples assayed up to 7.27 g/t Au and averaged 1.3 g/t Au

 

  • The State of Nevada:
  • 5th largest gold producer in world.
  • 6 M oz of gold produced in 2017.
  • 1 M oz of gold produced 1835-2018.
  • Ranked #1 most desirable mining jurisdiction in the world by The Fraser Institute.

Commenting today, Managing Director, Richard Clemmey said:  “We are delighted to have acquired an interest in the Pyramid Project.  Projects with high-grade gold results in drilling that have not already been followed up are hard to find in Nevada.  This acquisition follows the staking of the Paymaster Project earlier this year and is in line with our strategy to build a new project portfolio which will enable the Company to reduce its future geographical, technical, permitting and commodity risk exposure and provide long-term shareholder value”. 

Maps showing the location of various features described in this news release will be available on the Company’s website in due course.

Detailed Information

Location

Tertiary’s Pyramid Project is located 40km northwest of Reno in the Pyramid Mining District and is readily accessible from State Highway 445 which crosses the northwest tip of the project.

The Property

The Company has secured a 20-year lease with option to purchase a group of 9 patented mining claims. In addition, the Company has staked a further 25 unpatented mining claims adjoining the patents to cover potential extensions along strike.

Patented mining claims are considered as private property under US law and have the advantage that mineral exploration and surface disturbance below 5 acres can be carried out without permits and, in general, mine permitting is a more straightforward process.

Geology & Mineralisation

The Pyramid Mining District lies at the northwest end of the Walker Lane mineral belt a major northwest trending structural deformation zone and a highly productive gold, silver and copper producing region which is host to numerous past and currently producing multi-million ounce epithermal gold deposits as well porphyry copper and porphyry molybdenum deposits.

Within the Pyramid Mining District, the Company’s Pyramid Project is underlain by a thick sequence of mid-late Tertiary age (23 Ma old) rhyolitic tuffs interpreted by the Nevada Bureau of Mines & Geology to have formed within an east-west elongated Caldera structure named the Perry Canyon Caldera.

The gold veins at Pyramid lie within the Perry Canyon Caldera and are interpreted from historical mapping and mineral exploration to lie on the margins of a large and deeply buried porphyry system in the southeast part of the district that is currently claimed by copper producer Asarco LLC (a division part of Groupo Mexico). At the higher erosional levels currently preserved at Pyramid such porphyry systems are prospective for high-sulphidation gold deposits (in more central areas) such as those found further south in the Walker Lane at the Goldfield Mining District (4 million ounces of past production at 1oz gold/ton) and  low and intermediate-sulphidation epithermal deposits (of which there are many examples in the Walker Lane) in more peripheral areas where the Company’s claims are located. This pattern of mineralisation is similar to that of many large porphyry systems in the US, Peru and the Pacific basin countries.

In the main part of the Pyramid District precious metals were mined from three moderately to steeply dipping, northwest-striking vein systems named after the prominent mines that occur along them – Ruth, Burrus, and Bluebird. The Company’s claim interests cover the Ruth vein system and a number of parallel vein systems and zones of alteration.  In addition to abundant quartz and pyrite, vein minerals in unoxidized ore from the Ruth vein system include barite, anglesite, galena, sphalerite, acanthite, gold and cassiterite.

Past Mining & Exploration

The Pyramid Mining District was established in 1866 with only small-scale production reported. Modern exploration in the Pyramid District has focussed primarily on the search for porphyry copper mineralisation with only limited exploration having been carried out for gold.

The only documented field exploration in the area of the Company’s claims was carried out by Battle Mountain Gold Mining (“Battle Mountain”) who leased the project from the current lessors, Golden Crescent Corporation, in the period 1988-89. Battle Mountain carried out surface sampling, soil sampling and drilled 10 shallow exploration holes for a total of 1,006m of drilling to depths between 43 and 140m.

Soil sampling was conducted on a 30 x 120m grid within a confined area 600m x 600m centred on Battle Mountain’s main target area, the Ruth Mine vein system and associated vein stockwork. This identified a series of gold-in-soil anomalies and eight of their ten drill holes were designed to test a broad gold anomaly located just northwest of the Ruth Mine. These intersected areas of anomalous gold up to 1.5m grading 1.64 grammes/tonne gold (g/t Au) in hole PYR 1 from 10.7m depth.

Battle Mountain’s two other drill holes were designed to test a parallel vein west of the Ruth vein system which correlates with a separate strong gold-arsenic-mercury soil anomaly, mercury and arsenic being strongly associated with gold in epithermal gold deposits. This soil anomaly is open ended and continues strongly to the northwest and southeast boundaries of the sampled area.

Drill hole PYR 9 on this western line intersected high-grade gold mineralisation and visible gold within a sample thickness of 1.52m grading 17.8 g/t Au from 94.5m downhole. A broad zone of low-grade mineralisation continued to the end of the hole at 115.8m where the last 1.52m sample graded 2.6 g/t Au.

PYR 10 targeted the same western line soil anomaly some 150m to the southwest but was interpreted to have been drilled in the wrong direction and made no significant gold intersections.

Battle Mountain did not carry out any follow up exploration.

Proposed Mineral Exploration – Tertiary Minerals plc

The association of high-grade gold mineralisation in a previous drill hole associated with a strong and open-ended gold soil anomaly supported strongly by epithermal pathfinder elements mercury and arsenic presents a compelling drill target.

Similar narrow high-grade epithermal gold deposits in Nevada have hosted multi-million-ounce deposits such as the producing Midas Mine where the mainveins produced more than 2.2 million ounces of gold and 26.9 million ounces of silver between 1998 and 2013.

Tertiary Minerals intends to follow up Battle Mountain’s drilling and soil sampling results with an initial RC and core drilling programme as soon as possible. Core drilling is recommended as water, which can affect sample quality, was encountered in drilling both holes PYR 9 & 10.

The broader potential of the vein systems on the Project area are highlighted by the results of 43 surface chip samples taken by Battle Mountain from various outcropping veins and old mine workings within the Company’s Project area. These assayed up to 7.27 g/t Au and averaged 1.3 g/t Au.

This high prospectivity was confirmed by surface grab carried out by the Nevada Bureau of Mines & Geology during a regional assessment in 1999 when samples from the 1km long Ruth vein System averaged 1.3 g/t gold and 131 g/t silver (Garside et al 2003). The highest gold content, 8 g/t Au, was from the Surefire Mine area which has never been drill tested.

A series of maps illustrating the features described in the News Release will be uploaded to the Company’s website in due course.

Notes to Editors

Tertiary Minerals plc (ticker symbol ‘TYM’) is an AIM-traded mineral exploration and development company building a significant strategic position in the fluorspar sector. Fluorspar is an essential raw material in the chemical, steel and aluminium industries. Tertiary controls two significant Scandinavian projects (Storuman in Sweden and Lassedalen in Norway) and a large deposit of strategic significance in Nevada USA (MB Project).

Tertiary Minerals plc (TYM) New Project Acquisition and MB Project Update

Tertiary Minerals plc is pleased to advise that it has staked claim to the Paymaster zinc-copper-silver-Cobalt-Tellurium prospect in Nevada, USA. The Company is also pleased to advise that the next phase of Scoping Study level metallurgical testwork is due to start by the end of February for the MB fluorspar project in Nevada.

 

Paymaster Project Highlights

  • Grab samples assay up to 21% zinc, 6.5% lead, 3.3% copper and 253g/t silver
  • Mineralisation intermittently exposed and sampled over 1.7km strike length
  • Samples also contain high levels of high-tech metals tellurium and cobalt
  • Geophysical exploration planned to define drill targets

MB Fluorspar Project

  • Next phase of metallurgical testwork planned at SGS Lakefield, Canada
  • Due to start – end February 2019
  • Target to produce acid-grade fluorspar and mica

Commenting today, Managing Director, Richard Clemmey said: “Whilst we continue with our strategy of reviewing project acquisition opportunities potentially capable of generating revenue and profits in a shorter timescale, we have also expanded our scope to include earlier stage projects which can be developed organically”.

“We are therefore pleased to have secured the first project in the pipeline of exciting new projects currently being assessed. As well as progressing our MB fluorspar project, building a new project portfolio should enable the company to reduce its future geographical, technical, permitting and commodity risk exposure and provide long term shareholder value”.

Detailed Information

Zinc skarns1 are important not only as a source of zinc, lead, copper, silver and other associated metals but also as indicators of buried porphyry copper and molybdenum deposits. As a class of mineral deposit they include a number of world class zinc-silver deposits such as Antamina in Peru.

The Paymaster skarn mineralisation was originally prospected in the late 1950’s under US Defense Minerals Exploration Administration grant system. A government mining engineer recommended that the project be drill tested, but records suggest this did not take place and no production ensued.

In 1960 it was the subject of a brief publication by the US Geological Survey when zinc rich secondary clay minerals, sphalerite (zinc sulphide), galena (lead sulphide) and magnetite were identified in a pyroxene-garnet-quartz skarn mineral assemblage at the eastern end of the area now claimed by the Company.  The prospector scale workings were later described in a Geological Survey of Nevada publication in 1991 by an acknowledged world expert on skarn deposits, Lawrence (Larry) Meinert who, on the basis of his observations, concluded that the Paymaster skarn must be part of a much larger hydrothermal system.

Within the Company’s claim holdings, the skarn mineralisation has recently been traced westward over a total distance of 1.7km in a number of wide spaced and very shallow prospector pits. Seven grab2 samples of the skarn mineralisation exposed in or excavated from the pits average 10.1% zinc (maximum 20.9%), 1.5% lead (max. 6.5%) 134g/t silver (max 253 g/t or 7.3 ounces/ton) and 0.68% copper (maximum 3.4%).

The skarn samples also contain up to 0.11% cobalt (average of 419ppm or 0.045%) and up to 58ppm tellurium (average 31ppm) and 782ppm bismuth (average 315ppm).

Cobalt is in strong demand for use in new generation batteries. Tellurium’s primary use is for manufacturing films for photovoltaic solar cells. When alloyed with other elements, such as cadmium, tellurium forms a compound that exhibits enhanced electrical conductivity. Therefore, a thin film can efficiently absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity.

The mineralised skarn samples were collected largely from one stratigraphic horizon within Cambrian age limestone in contact with shale close to a shale contact and 1 mile south of the limestone contact with the Cretaceous age Lone Mountain granite pluton.  Where sampled the skarn appears to be associated with cross cutting faults and the continuity along strike between exposures is currently unknown but pinch and swell is seen on a local scale.

The Company intends to carry out follow up exploration on the Paymaster skarn to identify suitable drilling targets.
