ECR Minerals #ECR – Andrew Scott, Andrew Haythorpe & Adam Jones discuss Blue Moon & other projects

ECR’s Andrew Scott, Andrew Haythorpe & Adam Jones discuss today’s developments at Blue Moon & other projects. Andrew Haythorpe describes the consistent predictable grades across Blue Moon and says today’s hole assay is just another step in that direction. Adam then covers the drilling campaign, following the 2019 RC drilling campaign. The current hole is 150m to the west, and with holes 100-200m apart the results are promising, with bleaching on the core consistent with the structure. Currently three holes have been completed 3 holes, if mineralisation continues then “happy days”, a possible resource. Assays from the remaining holes should be back in early December, so. the company will announce next steps and next drill holes then. Plenty more to look forward to as well – Omeo hasn’t even been touched yet, plenty of blue sky potential, Hurricane mineralisation on surface, Lolworth assays pending from stream sediment and rock chips, field team back out there in a few days. All field samples now with the labs, looking like a good Christmas and strong start to 2023.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Encouraging Results from First Drill Hole of 2022 at Blue Moon, Victoria

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the exploration and development company focused on gold in Australia, is pleased to announce gold results from the first drillhole for 2022 (BBMDD004) completed at Blue Moon.

ECR Minerals plc has 100% ownership of the Bailieston Project (EL5433), which contains the gold prospects known as HR3, Cherry Tree, Blue Moon and Black Cat. The projects are operated and drilled by ECR’s Australian wholly owned subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”).

ECR CEO Andrew Haythorpe commented: “I am pleased to report an encouraging grade from the first Blue Moon drill hole of the 2022 Blue Moon campaign. The programme has been designed to test for mineralised continuity of the Blue Moon gold bearing structure and we’re very encouraged by what we’ve seen so far. As previously stated, the drill site is located west of where the 2019 RC drill programme finished, so a decision on further drilling activity will be made once the results for the remaining holes are in.”

“ECR is entering a busy period as we complete our initial sampling campaign at Lolworth and finalise planning an initial field campaign at the Hurricane project in N Queensland. With soil sample lab results from Creswick also due, I am very much looking forward to reporting results of the next three Blue Moon holes along with our next steps to the market as and when we have them.”

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Results from the first diamond drillhole for 2022 are encouraging with 0.5m @ 7.29 g/t Au from 96.9m.
  • Drilling continues with three out of a planned four-hole program completed to date with samples awaiting results pending.

BBMDD004

BBMDD004 is the first diamond drillhole completed from an initial four-hole programme designed to test for mineralised continuity of the Blue Moon gold bearing structure. The drill site is located west of where the 2019 RC drill programme finished. Hosted within an east-west striking dyke formation, mineralisation at the Blue Moon prospect is characterised by alteration and bleaching of the dyke as seen in figure 1 above. The mineralised fluids responsible for the bleaching are also identified by the increase in the arsenic geochemistry and pyritic sulphidation. Geological logging to date has also identified that gold mineralisation is most evident in the vicinity of millimetre scale swarms of quartz-carbonate veinlets (figure 1). The best intercept in BBMDD004 of 0.5m @ 7.29 g/t Au from 96.9m downhole is associated with such veinlets. All reportable gold intercepts greater than 0.1 g/t Au from hole BBMDD004 are presented in Table 1 below.

NEXT STEPS

Drilling is now complete at three out of the four planned holes. Sampling has also been completed and we anticipate that the next results will be reported before the Christmas period. The drill core looks encouraging with typical bleaching and sulphides present in all holes drilled to date. Accordingly, the Directors have agreed that the final decision to continue with further drilling will be based on the pending drill results.

New UK Investor Magazine podcast covering #China, Next #NXT, Glaxo #GSK, Sovereign Metals #SVML and ECR Minerals #ECR

investor

Alan Green joins the Podcast as we explore UK equities and key macro themes driving markets this week.

We discuss:

  • Next (LON:NXT)
  • GlaxoSmithKline (LON:GSK)
  • Sovereign Metals (LON:SVML)
  • ECR Minerals (LON:ECR)

We focus initially on the Chinese economy and how UK investors could play the end of the Zero COVID-19 policy, should recent rumours prove to have any weight to them.

Next is a fantastic bellwether for the UK economy and to see the retailer maintain their full year profit guidance, despite concerns around the health of the UK consumer.

GlaxoSmithKline sales have impressed the market with £7.8 billion sales in the third quarter, up 18% AER compared to the same period last year. We look deeper into the results and recent developments oil their pipeline of drugs.

We finish by looking at Sovereign Metal’s recent Titanium Rutile offtake agreement and ECR Minerals latest update.

AIM

Billing and charging software provider Cerillion (CER) says higher utilisation rates and beneficial exchange rate movements mean that pre-tax profit for the year to September 2022 will be much higher than the forecast £10.1m. Net cash is anticipated to be £20m. The pipeline of opportunities remains strong.

Vianet (VNET) says both divisions are increasing revenues. The smart machines division has increased vending connections by 24% to 52,490. Even though the pub sector is having a tough time, the smart zones division is growing revenues as the clients try to improve efficiency. Overall interim revenues are 13% ahead at £7.18m. However, there are cost pressures and Cenkos has reduced its 2022-23 forecast operating profit by £450,000 to £3.05m, with a bigger reduction of £950,000 to £4.04m next year.

Merit Group (MRIT) is selling its media, events and training operations to a business owned by Merit shareholder Lord Ashcroft for £4.5m. The cash will be used to pay off debt of £3.2m. Merit will focus on the Dods Political Intelligence and data businesses.

Franchise Brands (FRAN) says that Filta and Metro Rod are trading strongly, and full year group pre-tax profit will be better than expected. The consumer franchise businesses are finding it difficult to recruit franchisees. The 2022 pre-tax profit forecast has been raised by 5% to £12.4m.

Allergy Therapeutics (AGY) is able to restart production at its Worthing facility in the middle of November. The facility was shut down during peak production for does for the pollen season because of quality control problems.

ECR Minerals (ECR) has an option to purchase Placer Gold, which owns three mining tenements in Queensland. They are known as the Hurricane project, and it is prospective for gold and antimony. The option cost £144,000, while the total cost could be £3.8m, including a net smelter royalty capped at £3m.

Active investor Chris Akers has taken a 3.32% stake in Fiinu Group (BANK), which was formed in July when the Fiinu banking business reversed into the AIM shell Immediate Acquisition. Fiinu has developed the Plugin Overdraft, which provides customers with an overdraft facility without the requirement to switch banks.

Managed IT services provider CloudCoCo (CLCO) trebled revenues to £24m in the year to September 2022, while EBITDA improved from £745,000 to around £1m. There were four acquisitions in late 2021 so they contributed to the growth. Investment is sales is starting to pay off and there should be further growth in revenues and profit this year.

Secure payments technology provider PCI-Pal (PCIP) increased first quarter revenues by 29%, compared with a 20% forecast for the full year. An Open Banking payment service has been launched.

MAIN MARKET

MADE.com (MADE) says that the parties it invited to work towards making an offer for the company as part of the formal sale process will not be able to meet the necessary timetable. The company is running out of cash. There are no current funding proposals or possible offers. The main subsidiary is no longer taking orders. It appears there is little hope for shareholders unless something happens soon.

Eastinco Mining and Exploration (ATN) has acquired Aterian, and this sparked a move from the Aquis Stock Exchange to the standard list. The deal takes the business into Morocco, and it has existing projects in Rwanda. There was £854,000 raised in a placing at 1p a share. The share price ended the week at 0.95p. There are 15 different potential Moroccan prospects. They include the Agdz project, where there is a ten-year mining licence over a prospect with copper and gold deposits already identified.

Unicorn Mineral Resources (UMR) has exploration licences in two project areas in the Republic of Ireland. It is still early days in terms of exploration, but the licences in the Kilmallock area are reaching the point when drilling for zinc can commence, and the £930,000 raised at 10p a share in the flotation will finance that. The share price ended the week at 17.5p (15p/20p).

AIM-quoted Jangada Mines (JAN) has increased its holding in Blencowe Resources (BRES) from 2% to 9.5% by investing £610,000. The investment was part of a £750,000 placing at 4p a share where RAB Capital and JUB Capital also bought shares. Every two shares come with a warrant exercisable at 8p each. The cash will be invested in the Orom-Cross graphite project in Uganda, which has a net present value of $482m.

BSF Enterprise (BSFA) has received a £100,000 grant for further development of its serum-free media, City-mix. The grant is provided by EIT Food, which aims to commercialise cultivated meat.
