ECR Minerals #ECR – Purchase of Second, Multi-Purpose Drilling Rig for Central Victorian Goldfields, Australia

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focused on Australia, is pleased to announce the purchase of a second drilling rig by ECR’s wholly owned Australian subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”).

MGA has recently signed a contract for the purchase of a new Cortech CMR1000 multi-purpose drilling rig for a total of US$402,957. This follows the purchase of the Midas Drilling Rig (“Midas”) currently engaged in an aggressive drilling programme at the Bailieston project. The new rig is a high capacity, heavy duty multi-purpose drill rig which is highly effective in diamond coring, reverse circulation and rotary drilling techniques. It has been purchased complete with spares and all downhole equipment and is capable of drilling as deep as 2,000 metres*. The rig will be delivered in Q4 2021 and will further boost MGA’s in-house drilling capability.

With access to a growing team of experienced drilling personnel to operate the rig, along with Midas, the addition of the new CMR1000 rig increases MGA’s flexibility in the field and is expected to accelerate future drilling schedules and enable drill programmes to be completed at lower cost.

Craig Brown, Chief Executive Officer commented: “I am delighted to announce the acquisition of our second drill rig. Midas has already proved its value in the field, as it has been constantly working at Bailieston since our campaign launch at the Byron prospect announced on January 12th 2021.

The strong cash position enjoyed by ECR Minerals has enabled us to maintain aggressive drilling programmes across our existing properties, and the acquisition of the new, multi-purpose rig significantly enhances our on-the-ground capabilities.

The RC and diamond drilling capability the new CMR rig provides us with is particularly suited to the license areas at our three Queensland projects announced in May 2021. Given the recent results from the Creswick project announced on July 19th 2021, we are confident that the strategy of fast-paced and aggressive drilling programmes across multiple high-profile gold targets will expose ECR to potential new gold discoveries.”

ECR Minerals #ECR Geologist Adam Jones sees huge potential at Creswick as aggressive drill program advances

ECR Minerals PLC’s #ECR geologist Adam Jones speaks to Proactive soon after the explorer announced drilling at its Creswick project in the Victoria Goldfields, Australia has identified more gold mineralisation along the strike zone in a southerly direction from the first drill hole.

To date, seven holes have been completed, with four holes fully assayed and all hitting multiple and significant zones of quartz and all intercepting gold, with the best results so far from CSD003 where there were no historic workings.

ECR Minerals #ECR – DoR & EA Approve LUX Exploration Work Programmes at North Queensland

DEPARTMENT OF RESOURCES & ENVIRONMENTAL AUTHORITY APPROVE LUX EXPLORATION WORK PROGRAMMES FOR THREE TERRITORIES WEST OF CHARTERS TOWERS IN THE LOLWORTH DISTRICT OF NORTH QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focused on Australia, is pleased to announce that the Department of Resources (DoR) and Environmental Authority have approved work programmes for three Exploration Permits (“EPM”) at its Lolworth District licence territories in North Queensland, Australia.

The EPM licenses have yet to be approved but now that the work programmes have been approved, the EPM’s will be advertised, following which there will be a 4-month consultation period. The Directors believe the licences should be granted in approximately 6 months time, and further announcements will be made at that time. Once approved, all three are valid for an initial period of 5 years to enable the Group to complete the planned exploration program, with a right to apply for permit extensions for up to a total of 15 years. The licenses will be held in the name of LUX Exploration Pty Ltd (“LUX”) which is a 100%-owned Australian subsidiary of ECR Minerals.

Craig Brown, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“I am pleased to report that following our application for three strategic licenses in the Lolworth district announced on 27 May 2021, we have received work programme approval back in record time to complete the EPM application process.

Historical data* from the area shows that regional deposits, including Charters Towers have produced over 24m Oz in total gold production over the years, so naturally our team are very keen to get on the ground and start work.

Our strong cash position has enabled us to maintain aggressive drilling programmes, operating two diamond drill rigs at the Bailieston and Creswick projects in Victoria. While our team at Bendigo continue to assess the core and drill data, under the leadership of Geologist Adam Jones, we now have the capacity to aggressively pursue and develop this new opportunity.”

I am confident that our ongoing drilling operations across multiple high-profile gold targets will expose ECR to potential new gold discoveries, and I look forward to updating shareholders again in the near term.”

THE LOLWORTH RANGE AREA

Exploration Permits (EPM 27901, 27902 and 27903) represent 300 sub-blocks covering a total 900 km2 of highly prospective ground located within the Lolworth Range, 200km WSW of Townsville and 30km north from Pentlands, North Queensland Australia.

EXPLORATION POTENTIAL

The application area contains metamorphic rocks of the Charters Towers Province, that host historical large gold producing centres such as Charters Tower (6.6M Oz Au) *** and Ravenswood (3.5M Oz Au)****; although these numbers have not been independently validated by ECR and so are provided for guidance purposes only. The structural and basement geology is poorly understood in the area, which suggests it is possible to find new deposits.

The area also contains reported rhyolitic volcanics which play host to intrusion-related breccia gold deposits in the region such as Mount Leyshon (>2.5M oz) and Mount Wright (>1M oz). **

Desktop study of historic exploration data from the late 1980’s revealed anomalous gold stream sediment sample results within the applied areas.

The application area is encompassed on the southern boundary by rich alluvial gold deposits of the Cape River and Gorge Creek area, which drain the southern Lolworth Range.

The east boundary of EPM27902 and EPM27903 is bordered by current exploration permits exploring the Lolworth dyke swarm; a north-west trending system of rhyolitic dykes and small breccia pipes containing gold, copper and molybdenum.

Historic sample data also highlighted tin-tungsten mineralisation in the western areas of EPM27902 (see Figure 1). Reports show no detailed follow-up work has been undertaken.

EXPLORATION OUTLINE

Research suggests that  little mineral exploration work has been done within the Lolworth Range. While historical ore-deposit reports and metal prices have provided some context and background to the opportunity, the ECR board believe that the most relevant exploration work undertaken within the application area was under AP4855M (by A.R.I Limited) during the 1987-88 period. The work this company undertook is one of the main reasons for the current application area. A.R.I Limited undertook a major stream sediment program within the drainage of the Lolworth Range via helicopter access. This work highlighted seven gold anomalous areas worth following up. Historical rock chip samples also demonstrate the prospectivity of the region with elevated gold in association with rhyolites and breccias. Eleven watersheds showed visible gold in pan concentrates.

Initial exploration is likely to include confirmation of existing stream sampling anomalies to potential watersheds, followed up by soil and rock chip sampling of ridgelines that are above these anomalous watersheds. The outcome of this work will delineate worthy drill targets.

https://www.ecrminerals.com/images/figure2_210706.jpg

Once the EPM licence applications have been approved, LUX Exploration Pty Ltd. will have initially 5 years to complete the planned exploration program, with right to apply for permit extensions for up to a total of 15 years. LUX Exploration will need to relinquish 50% of the initial application area after 5 years.

The work programmes and forecast expenditure for licenses EPM27901, 27902 and 27903 are expected to total £1.8m over 5 years (Figure 3). NB: These forecasts and projections represent the board’s assumptions and expectations in light of currently available information, and are based on industry trends, costs and other factors that are subject to change.

ECR Minerals plc #ECR – Anticline Identified Close to Maori Reef Line at the Bailieston Gold Project

ECR MINERALS plc

(“ECR Minerals”, “ECR” or the “Company”)

ANTICLINE IDENTIFIED CLOSE TO MAORI REEF LINE AT THE BAILIESTON GOLD PROJECT

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focussed on gold exploration in Australia, is pleased to announce drilling updates across the Bailieston Project in central Victoria, Australia.

ECR Minerals plc has 100% ownership of Bailieston Project which is operated under their Australian owned subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”).

Craig Brown, Chief Executive Officer of ECR Minerals plc, commented:

“I am delighted to announce a highly significant development resulting from the aggressive drilling programmes currently underway in the Victoria Goldfields. ECR Minerals has the advantage of owning its own diamond drilling rig and, with a centralised operational hub at Bendigo, we have been able to swiftly and efficiently interpret the core samples and secure valuable data from the programmes.

As suspected by our senior geologists, logging of three diamond holes at the Maori and Dan Genders Reef at the HR3 prospect has confirmed a steep south-plunging anticline to exist sub-parallel to the Maori Reef line which hosts quartz-arsenopyrite mineralisation and elevated gold grades.

Most significantly, the data and presence of gold in the core samples confirms the south plunging anti-cline runs close to the historical mined portions of the Maori Reef. The additional drilling planned for the northern end of the zone will help us further understand the size and shape of the structure in order that we can determine next exploration steps.”

KEY POINTS

  • Four initial diamond drill holes have been completed into the Maori and Dan Genders Reef lines for a total of 869.3m.
  • Structural logging of three diamond holes now confirms a steep south-plunging anticline that exists sub-parallel to the Maori Reef line which hosts quartz-arsenopyrite mineralisation with elevated gold grades. 3D projections of this folding are spatially associated with high-grade historic percussion drill intersections.

PROGRESS AT BAILIESTON GOLD PROJECT

First pass diamond drilling has been completed over the Maori and Dan Genders Reef lines. A summary of these four diamond holes is as follows;

BH3DD005 was drilled to investigate the merging of the Hard Up Reef and the Maori Reef structures beneath historic gold workings. The Hard Up Reef was intersected down the hole at 62.4m and is present as strongly oxidised fracturing with silica alteration. Only elevated gold was detected from this part of the reef (0.5m @ 0.80 g/t Au). The Maori Reef was intersected at 94.8m grading (0.8m @ 0.58 g/t Au). Plotting of bedding measurements in 3D software shows the hole drilled through the nose of a fold where the Maori Reef was intersected. Increasing silica alteration with disseminated pyrite is present on the immediate western limb of this fold. Assay results show the pyrite-silica zone to carry above background gold grades (0.2-0.5 g/t Au) within the fire assay analysis of the tails of the cyanide-leachwell solution. This is indicating the pyrite is carrying a refractory gold component. Another quartz-stockwork zone was drilled through at 140m (1m @ 2.89 g/t Au). The hole ended at 174.3m.

BH3DD006 was drilled to investigate a postulated anticline through the central part of the HR3 goldfield and possibly hosting the Dan Genders Reef system. Structural logging shows the Dan Genders Reef to be hosted within west dipping sediments. Assays from this Reef returned low grades from 70.3m down-hole (0.8m @ 0.86 g/t Au). The drillhole was continued to look for the fold into east dipping sediments. This fold was intersected at a drilled depth of 225m. Accompanying this fold was bedding parallel quartz-sulphide mineralisation with assays returning (0.7m @ 1.25 g/t Au) from 224.6m. Drilling continued across the fold where another unknown narrow bedded laminated quartz vein was drilled through at 342.7m depth. This intercept was the best from this hole (0.3m @ 6.06 g/t Au) from 342.7m. This drillhole ended at 344.7m. 3D modelling of bedding shows the fold axis drilled through at 225m projects up-dip to the fold drilled through at 95m in BH3DD005. This fold plunges approximately -40 degrees to the south. The up-dip projection of this fold to surface coincides with the historic Maori mine workings and a high-grade historic percussion drill hole from a previous explorer during the late 1980’s (1m @ 34 g/t Au) from 44m depth in hole BLP136. Mineralisation associated with this fold will need to be investigated further.

BH3DD007 3D projections of quartz veins and the plunge of the fold at 225m downhole in BH3DD006 hypothesised quartz veins to potentially roll over the fold hinge and become limb-thrust hosted within the east dipping beds on the eastern side of the fold further to the north of BH3DD006. BH3DD007 drilled through the fold at a drilled depth of 185.35m. Accompanying the fold was a laminated quartz vein showing fine acicular arsenopyrite needles that assayed (0.65m @ 2.90 g/t Au) from 185.35m. A supplementary rubbly quartz zone giving off high arsenic readings using a pXRF was also drilled through at 43.9m depth. Assays from this zone shows the potential of broader, low-grade gold mineralisation in the oxide levels. Assays from 43.9m (5.3m @ 0.70 g/t Au, including 0.55m @ 1.08g/t Au from 44.65m), accompanied by lower grades ranging between 0.51 and 0.89 g/t Au. Due to poor drill recoveries within this oxide zone, BH3DD008 was collared 10m away from BH3DD007 and drilled to 96.1m. Best result was (0.8m @ 0.38 g/t Au from 37.3m).

PHASE TWO DRILLING

Structural measurements of diamond drill core combined with 3D modelling have proved a steep south plunging anticline to now exist sub-parallel along strike to the Maori Reef line. Spatially, intense historical mined portions of the Maori Reef and high-grade percussion drill results from previous explorers coincide with the up-dip projection of the anticlinal fold.

Drilling to date has confirmed the presence of gold associated with the anticline along strike and depth to the south. Further diamond holes will be drilled in strategic positions to understand the structural controls on the high-grade portions of veins associated with this fold.

Plans for diamond drilling on the northern end of this fold zone have been submitted for approval. These plans are part of a larger campaign to drill underneath recent high-grade soil anomalies in this central and northern part of the goldfield (see previous release 15th June 2021).

ECR Minerals #ECR – Unaudited half-yearly financial results for six months ending 31 March 2021 & Update

LONDON: 29 JUNE 2021 – ECR Minerals plc, the gold exploration and development company, is pleased to announce unaudited half-yearly financial results for the six months ending 31 March 2021 for the Company as consolidated with its subsidiaries (the “Group”), along with a review of significant developments during the period and subsequently.

HIGHLIGHTS 

  • Victoria, Australia continues to enjoy a gold exploration boom, with continued third-party interest in ECR’s Creswick project in Victoria. Discussions are ongoing in respect to a potential commercial transaction in relation to our Creswick project.
  • Late in 2020, the Company took delivery of its new Cortech CSD1300G diamond drill rig and at the same time established a new operational base at Bendigo in the Central Victoria Goldfields.
  • The Company announced three new strategic licence applications, adding new exploration opportunities in North Queensland, Australia. Three applications for Exploration Permits – Minerals (“EPM”) licences have been submitted by LUX Exploration Pty Ltd, ECR’s 100% owned subsidiary.
  • In January 2021, ECR’s 100% owned Australian subsidiary MGA commenced drilling operations at the Byron Prospect in the HR3 area of the Bailieston Project. The Company’s newly acquired ‘Midas’ drill rig was utilised to undertake the first of numerous planned drilling campaigns, all of which are being coordinated from ECR’s central exploration facility compound at Bendigo.
  • Announced results from exploration activity in Victoria included immediate success at the first drill hole at Creswick, intersecting 1m @ 9.68 g/t and confirming high gold anomalies (up to 3.75 g/t Au) along with spatially associated antimony which is thought to be from the mineral stibnite which forms a close association with gold mineralisation. Furthermore, a total of 720 B-horizon soil samples were taken across the central and eastern part of the Bailieston Historic Reserve #3 (HR3) between February and March 2021.
  • Post-period end, the Company’s cash position was strengthened by a £2,000,000 equity financing by Novum Securities in April 2021 to ramp-up drilling and exploration activities on ECR’s gold exploration projects.
  • During the period, the Company issued an aggregate of 11,800,000 share options from the management and consultant option pool to certain key consultants and staff, and also issued an additional 235,420,387 shares from the exercise of warrants and options, receiving a total of £3,289,520.
  • Group total comprehensive expenses of £468,112 are reported for the six months ended 31 March 2021 (£1,846,202 for the six months ended 31 March 2020) and net assets of £6,442,465 at 31 March 2021 (£2,206,211 at 31 March 2020).
  • A Group Operating Loss is reported for the six months ended 31 March 2021 of £403,079, compared with £369,102 for the six months ended 31 March 2020.
  • Adam Jones appointed as a Non-Executive Director.
  • Despite the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy, ECR is in a robust financial position and continues to provide shareholders with exposure to an exciting range of gold projects.

FINANCIAL RESULTS

For the six months ended 31 March 2021 the unaudited financial statements of the Group record a total comprehensive expense of £468,112.

The Group’s total assets were £6,522,307 at 31 March 2021, compared with £2,275,479 at 31 March 2020. The increase in total assets has occurred largely due to the increase in purchase of property, plant and equipment and exercise of warrants during the period.

The Group held £3,928,905 of cash and cash equivalents at 31 March 2021, compared with £166,852 at 31 March 2020.  Post the period end, the Group’s cash position benefited from a £2,000,000 equity financing completed by the Company in April 2021.  Cash at 23 June 2021 is £5,242,081.

REVIEW OF PRINCIPAL DEVELOPMENTS DURING THE PERIOD AND SUBSEQUENTLY

The six months to 31 March 2021 and the subsequent period since have been marked by a series of exciting developments for ECR, all of which are related to the Group’s primary strategic activity, of exploration and development in Australia through ECR’s wholly owned Australian subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”).

Currently, the Company is focused on an aggressive drilling programme at Bailieston and Creswick properties in Victoria, with two diamond drill rigs working every day to deliver large quantities of drill core for technical review, processing and assay testing. The ongoing pace and sheer volume of core and data recovered, along with the EPM applications in N Queensland is expected to expose ECR to potential new gold discoveries.

Application for 300 Sub-Blocks West of Charters Towers in the Lolworth District of North Queensland, Australia.

In May 2021, ECR Minerals announced three new strategic licence applications with a view to adding new exploration opportunities in Queensland, Australia. These were submitted by LUX Exploration Pty Ltd which is a 100%-owned Australian subsidiary of ECR Minerals.

The three Exploration Permits – Minerals (EPM) in application (27901, 27902 and 27903) represent 300 sub-blocks covering a total 900 km2 of highly prospective ground located within the Lolworth Range, 200km WSW of Townsville and 30km north from Pentlands, North Queensland Australia.

The application area contains metamorphic rocks of the Charters Towers Province, that host historical large gold producing centres such as Charters Tower (6.6M Oz Au) and Ravenswood (>1M Oz Au). The structural and basement geology is poorly understood in the area, suggesting numerous opportunities to find new deposits. The area also contains reported rhyolitic volcanism, which play host to intrusion-related breccia gold deposits in the region such as Mount Leyshon (>2.5M oz) and Mount Wright (>1M oz).

The application area is encompassed on the southern boundary by rich alluvial gold deposits of the Cape River and Gorge Creek area, which drain the southern Lolworth Range.

The east boundary of EPM27902 and EPM27903 is bordered by current exploration permits across the Lolworth dyke swarm; a north-west trending system of rhyolitic dykes and small breccia pipes containing gold, copper and molybdenum.

Historic samples also highlighted tin-tungsten mineralisation in the western areas of EPM27902. Reports show no detailed follow-up work has been undertaken.

ECR considers EPM27901, 27902 and 27903 offer significant potential for precious and base metal discoveries in an area of Australia where multiple large-scale discoveries have already been made.

Soil Sampling – HR3 Bailieston Project

In May 2021, MGA carried out soil sampling generated within the Historic Reserve #3, (HR3) Bailieston in Victoria, Australia. The results of the study were announced on 15 June 2021, and revealed high gold anomalies (up to 3.75 g/t Au) along with spatially associated antimony, which is thought to be from the mineral stibnite, which forms a close association with gold mineralisation. A total of 720 B-horizon soil samples were taken across the central and eastern part of the Bailieston Historic Reserve # 3 (HR3) between February and March 2021.

These findings mean we have now submitted a request for consent to undertake additional exploration drilling at the location, which is over and above initial planned drill holes in the area. The collected samples were tested by portable X-ray fluorescence (“pXRF”) for anomalous pathfinder elements for gold and a selected sub-set of 229 samples have been sent for trace element analysis (TL) for Au, Ag, As, Sb, Zn, Cu and Pb. Results of this work show a strong spatial relationship between Au (gold), Sb (antimony) and to a lesser extent As (arsenic). Plotting of spatial Au-Sb elemental maps reveals trends that may correspond to the weathering of high-grade gold shoots under shallow cover.

Field mapping shows sub-cropping quartz with little to no historical workings associated with these anomalies. Plans have been submitted for approval to drill along strike to test these quartz reefs at depth.

Soils grids were designed over known and possible strike extensions of gold-bearing quartz reefs. A 10m x 10m spaced grid was chosen as it is known that narrow high-grade gold reefs will erode over a small spatial area into the adjacent soil. Soils have been taken from the B-horizon, often at the gravel-clay interface at a depth around 10cm. This is where the gravels have not transported too far from their source rocks. Soils located within gullies and adjacent mullock dumps were removed due to contamination. All soils were sieved on site to < 2mm and bagged, producing a sample around 300g in weight. A total of 720 samples have been taken to date (June 2021).

All soils were systematically analysed in-house using ECR’s owned Olympus pXRF. Analysis is undertaken using three sequential beams with a 15 second count attributing to each beam. Results are evaluated for traditional pathfinder elements such as As, Ag, Pb, Zn, Cu and Sb.

Soil with moderate arsenic content (generally > 40 ppm) and soils spatially close to extensions to known reef lines were selected for further trace elemental analysis for Au, Ag, As, Pb, Zn, Cu and Sb. A total of 229 sub-samples have been selected and sent to ALS laboratories, Adelaide, South Australia. Method Au-TL44/ME-ICP44 was chosen for analysis.

A detection limit in ppm is sufficient given the proximity to possible gold sources. Any Au-TL44 results greater than 1 ppm was analysed by Au-AROR44, which is used for ‘ore grade’ analysis. A 50g charge from a 95% passing 75µm pulverise was chosen due to the likely presence of coarse gold.

Thirteen samples returned gold values above 0.1 g/t Au. Silver, Copper, Lead and Zinc results are low within the soils.

Arsenic is traditionally used as a pathfinder element for gold mineralisation and occurs at moderate levels within soils at HR3 and is fairly distributed, masking blind gold deposits.

Antimony (Sb) results are variable with high results correlating spatially with high gold assays.

Rock chips taken during 2018 along strike of the main soil anomaly showed a visible speck of coarse gold. Assays for these rock chips were analysed using a small charge fire assay resulting in variable results (up to 0.32 g/t Au) reflecting how coarse gold can be missed using traditional assay methods. Furthermore, non-executive director (Adam Jones) in February 2019 has found coarse gold by using a metal detector within the shallow soils in the vicinity of the reported soil anomalies.

Early Successful RC Diamond Drilling at Creswick Project

MGA has made great progress to date with the completion of the four diamond holes at Creswick and 909.2m of diamond drilling has been undertaken efficiently at the Creswick Project.  So far, the Company has received assay results from hole CSD001, with gold intersected in the first drill hole.

The first hole, CSD001 has been completed to 295m. This hole is an orientation hole to establish the position of the Dimocks Main Shale (DMS) and associated structures. As previously reported (21 June 2019) data from the RC drilling conducted in 2019 showed a lack of geological continuity indicating faulting and folding of the DMS. CSD001 intersected quartz zones within the DMS in addition to multiple reefs above and below it. Drilling of CSD001 has demonstrated that much of the 2019 RC drilling was done into the minor reefs above the DMS.

CSD001 revealed three parallel reef systems above the DMS that have been folded by small and large parasitic folds. The DMS was reached at 72m down the hole and continued to 93m and intersected two 2m quartz zones at the upper contact and at 86m with minor veining throughout the shale. The hole continued to 295m to test the folding and faulting beneath the DMS and encountered an additional 8 reef zones that mostly related to east-dipping faults and minor shales. 76 of the 108 samples sent for laboratory testing from CSD001 have been reported from the lab with the best result 1 m @ 9.68 g/t from an east-dipping fault beneath the DMS. Results from the final 32 samples are awaiting laboratory analysis.

CSD002 was collared 10 m to the west of CSD001 and drilled steeper to target where projected parasitic folding and the mineralised east-dipping fault intersect the DMS. The previously reported result from 2019 from CSR005 of 1m @ 81.0 g/t came from quartz in the parasitic folds. Drilling of CSD001 intersected an 8m quartz zone where the DMS and these structures intersect plus minor veining throughout the shale. The core from CSD002 has been logged, sampled and sent to the laboratory for analysis.

Work to better understand the nugget effect at Creswick is ongoing. As described in the release dated 5 November 2019 grade variability due to the nugget effect was demonstrated at Creswick with some of the initial samples under-reported and others over-reported.

Outlook, Future Prospects and COVID 19

The Board of ECR Minerals plc is very positive in regard to the outlook for the Company and for sustained demand for Gold over the longer term. We remain enthused over the potential and prospectively of the Company’s projects in Victoria, Australia.

As a consequence of COVID 19, governments around the world have imposed restrictions on

international travel, and in particular extensive restrictions have been imposed on domestic travel within Australia. These restrictions have meant that until May 2021, the board have been unable to visit the assets. However, the team on the ground in Victoria have continued the work at site without interruption, and as a result there has been no significant negative impact on the Company from the coronavirus.

ECR Minerals #ECR – CEO and geologist upbeat as first Creswick hole hits gold

ECR Minerals PLC’s (LON:ECR) CEO Craig Brown and director and geologist Adam Jones update Proactive on drilling at its Creswick and Bailieston gold projects in Victoria, Australia.

ECR’s this week announced it has intersected gold with the first hole drilled into the Dimocks Main Shale (DMS) at Creswick. The first four drill holes at the project are now complete.

Adam Jones comments on the quality of both prospects, and says Creswick is coming up fast behind Bailieston for prospectivity… ‘a mine at both places’

The rise and fall – or should we say, fall and rise – of the gold market in 2021

by Hannah Howes

Gold investment demand fell early this year, largely attributed to outflows in gold-backed ETFs as growing expectations of higher interest rates influenced investor attitude, according to the most recent World Gold Council (WGC) report (Gold outlook for 2021 positive, despite uncertainty – World Gold Council (miningweekly.com). When analysing this trend more closely, it has been noted that investment demand actually saw positive growth in the retail market with ETF outflows negatively impacting the overall picture. The WGC market intelligence manager Krishan Gopaul notes that the “The overall picture of investment falling in the quarter really hides two different stories – we see the ETF outflows but there is still the more positive growth story on the bar and coin side”.There has also been an increase in consumer demand which has been further enhanced by low gold prices, one of the major buyers of such commodities being China and other emerging markets. The catalysed global economic recovery, bolstered by swift vaccination efforts, has also boosted consumer confidence in the technology sector raising demand by 11% year on year.

The cyclical elements of gold demand have been heightened by the 10% decrease in gold price in the first quarter, in combination with the global economic recovery in response to positive Covid-19 outlooks. Senior Market Analyst Louise Street at WGC has observed that “having seen investors take shelter in gold from the initial impacts of Covid-19, the first quarter saw a sell-off in the gold price as confidence in economic recovery grew and US interest rates rose sharply,”adding that, notwithstanding this, gold holds a strong position in the most well-balanced portfolios. This is particularly so given the repeatedly reported fears of inflation. In previous years where records show inflation rates of over 3%, the price of gold increased 15% on average (https://www.gold.org/goldhub/research/outlook-2021). When looking ahead to the next few less-tumultuous years, Louise sees “reasons to be optimistic about the gold market”due to the resilience of the markets main drivers, low interest rates and increasing yields.

History ready to repeat itself?

The only certain thing to come from the past year is uncertainty in abundance. That said, when it comes to gold mining, we can remain confident in the fact that the Victoria goldfields, southern Australia, continues to stand as a reputable and reliable source of precious metals. This follows decades of mining in the region, in the wake of a glimmering spotlight launched by the 19thcentury gold rush. Testament to this fact is the nugget of gold rested assertively on my mantel, panned by myself during a trip to the Sovereign Hill attraction at the Ballarat Gold Mine.

AIM listed ECR Minerals (AIM: ECR) is a company on the brink of a gold fest from current drilling in the territory, focused on delivering the next multi-million ounce gold resource. ECR outright owns the Bailieston and Creswick projects located in Central Victoria, Australia, and with an operational HQ at Bendigo, is able to process and fast track core samples and assay results.

As well as holding financial interests in the Avoca, Moormbool and Timor projects, following the sale of those licenses to TSX-V listed Fosterville South Exploration Ltd for up to £1.3 million. Further retaining a 25% interest in the Danglay epithermal gold project located in Northern Philippines and a net smelter royalty agreement from the sale of the SLM gold project in Argentina.

Creswick

The Dimocks Main Shale, a geological feature believed to be have great gold potential, is home to Creswick and extends some 15km from the aforementioned mining centre of Ballarat.

Drill sites for the current programme are 2.2km south from those used in the previous drill programme in 2019, individual samples of which returned assays as high as 80.97 g/t gold over one metre. A study by pre-eminent consulting geochemist Dr Dennis Arne, whose experience includes extensive consultancy at the exceedingly successful Fosterville gold mine in Central Victoria, emphasized the significant gold exploration potential at Creswick, and ‘nuggety gold mineralisation’.

Bailieston

Also located in the sought-after central Victoria region, Bailieston is not far from the renowned Fosterville mine owned by Kirkland Lake Gold. Bailieston is base to ongoing drilling in the HR3 area, undertaken using ECR’s own diamond drill rig, with prospects also including Cherry Tree, Red Moon and Yellow Moon. Assay results have been announced for four holes in the HR3 area, with a further four holes awaiting final geological interpretation. What has been reported is that BH3DD005 holes 6 and 7 indicate the hypothesized central anticline does exist and represents a favourable target for gold mineralisation. Quality samples have been recorded from drilling by ECR at the Blue Moon prospect in 2019, including a 17.8g/t sample from a 2 metre interval. Making Blue Moon a noteworthy new discovery.

Through previously selling three Victoria licences (Avoca, Moormbool and Timor gold exploration projects) for cash and royalties to TSX-V listed Fosterville South Exploration Ltd, and a number of warrant exercises, the company is fully funded to continue drilling at its 100% owned Creswick and Bailieston projects through to into 2022. This strong cash position has given the company desirable footing moving forward, enabling them to push for the launch of further drilling programmes across existing property and acquire new opportunities.

In the recent Proactive Investors interview, ECR Minerals CEO Craig Brown spoke to Andrew Scott, highlighting the recent news of application for three new licenses in north-east Queensland, Australia. These permits are to cover a total of 900sq km of highly prospective ground within the Lolworth Range. Historical mining in the region totals 24.4mil ounces, equivalent to $48 billion worth of gold. Despite this, the area is relatively unexplored, offering “huge potential” according to Craig. As well as emphasising that he expects the gold price to only gain strength, with the precious metal being the hedge against inflation concerns.

Despite the recent retreat in share price, dropping from 4.25p in January, to 1.89p in May 2021, ECR’s strong cash position attributed to the aforementioned license sales and warrant exercises puts the company in an enviable industry spot. This, in combination with the fact the company owns a diamond drilling rig, currently operational at Bailieston while a contractor’s rig is active at Creswick, means ECR Minerals is set for a prosperous 2021/22 as demand for gold remains bullish. Making the current share price a bargain investment.

Proactive’s Andrew Scott talks to ECR Minerals #ECR CEO Craig Brown about Bailieston, Creswick and Queensland

ECR Minerals PLC‘s (LON:ECR) Craig Brown speaks to Proactive following the news it’s applied for three new licences in the north of Queensland, Australia. The permits cover a total 900sq km of highly prospective ground located within the Lolworth Range, 200km WSW of Townsville and 30km north from Pentlands. Brown also updates on drill programs which are progressing at its Bailieston and Creswick gold exploration projects in the Victoria Goldfields, Australia. They are 100%-owned by ECR’s wholly owned Australian subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Additional Strategic License Applications in Australia

APPLICATION FOR 300 SUB-BLOCKS WEST OF CHARTERS TOWERS IN THE LOLWORTH DISTRICT OF NORTH QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focussed on Australia, is pleased to announce strategic licence applications with a view to adding new exploration opportunities in Queensland, Australia.

Three Exploration Permits in Application (“EPM”) licences have been submitted in North Queensland, Australia with all three EPM licences are held under LUX Exploration Pty Ltd “LUX” which is a 100%-owned Australian subsidiary of ECR Minerals.

Craig Brown, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“The strong cash position enjoyed by ECR Minerals has not only enabled us to launch aggressive drilling programmes across our existing properties, but has also facilitated full utilisation of in-house and advisory resources to identify, investigate and acquire new opportunities to expand our Australian exploration portfolio.  Today’s announcement manifestly demonstrates that capability. 

We are currently operating two diamond drill rigs at the Bailieston and Creswick projects in Victoria, Australia, both of which are delivering considerable amounts of drill core for technical review, processing and assay testing.   

We believe the ongoing drilling operations and the upcoming implementation of drilling across multiple high-profile gold targets will expose ECR to potential new gold discoveries. 

We also look forward to providing further information from the new Queensland Australia licence applications, which we believe offer significant potential for precious and base metal discoveries in an area of Australia where multiple large-scale discoveries have already been made.

Exploration work across Australia continues apace and we expect to provide further operational updates in the near term

THE APPLICATION AREA

  • Three Exploration Permits in application (EPM 27901, 27902 and 27903); representing 300 sub-blocks covering a total 900 km2of highly prospective ground located within the Lolworth Range, 200km WSW of Townsville and 30km north from Pentlands, North Queensland Australia. 

EXPLORATION POTENTIAL

  • The application area contains metamorphic rocks of the Charters Towers Province, that host historical large gold producing centres such as Charters Tower (6.6M Oz Au) and Ravenswood (>1M Oz Au). The structural and basement geology is poorly understood in the area suggesting finding new deposits are possible.
  • The area also contains reported rhyolitic volcanics which play host to intrusion-related breccia gold deposits in the region such as Mount Leyshon (>2.5M oz) and Mount Wright (>1M oz). (see Figure 1 below).
  • Desktop study of historic exploration data from the late 1980’s revealed highly anomalous gold stream sediment sample results within the applied areas. 
  • The application area is encompassed on the southern boundary by rich alluvial gold deposits of the Cape River and Gorge Creek area, which drain the southern Lolworth Range.
  • The east boundary of EPM27902 and EPM27903 is bordered by current exploration permits exploring the Lolworth dyke swarm; a north-west trending system of rhyolitic dykes and small breccia pipes containing gold, copper and molybdenum.
  • Historic samples also highlighted tin-tungsten mineralisation in the western areas of EPM27902 (see Figure 2). Reports show no detailed follow-up work has been undertaken.

EXPLORATION OUTLINE

  • Research reveals little mineral exploration work has been done within the Lolworth Range. Access, company specific targeted ore-deposit styles and price of metals reflect the efforts of past exploration. The most detailed exploration work undertaken within the application area would have been under AP4855M (A.R.I Limited) during the 1987-88 period. The work this company undertook is one of the main reasons for the current application area. A.R.I undertook a major stream sediment program within the drainage of the Lolworth Range via helicopter access. This work highlighted seven gold anomalous areas worth following up. Rock chips also demonstrated the perspectivity of the region with elevated gold in association with rhyolites and breccias. Eleven watersheds showed visible gold in pan concentrates. Highlights from this historic exploration work are shown on (Figure 2).

Figure 2: Plan of EPM application area showing historic stream sediment sampling results.

https://www.ecrminerals.com/images/figure2_Lux.jpg

  • Initial exploration likely to include confirmation of existing stream sampling anomalies to potential watersheds, followed up by soil and rock chip sampling of ridgelines that are above these anomalous watersheds. The outcome of this work will delineate worthy drill targets.
  • Once licence applications have been approved, LUX Exploration Pty Ltd. will have initially 5 years to complete the planned exploration program, with right to apply for permit extensions for up to a total of 15 years. LUX Exploration will need to extinguish 50% of the initial application area after 5 years.
