ECR Minerals #ECR – CEO Craig Brown talks to Alan Green

Brand Comms CEO Alan Green talks to ECR Minerals #ECR CEO Craig Brown about the company’s flagship gold exploration projects in the heart of Australia’s Victoria Goldfields. Taking slides from the latest company presentation, Craig talks about ECR’s wholly owned drill rig, HQ at Bendigo and the £4m funding and extra cash resources owned by the company. We look at the Creswick Gold project located close to the Ballarat Gold Mine before discussing this year’s production numbers at the Fosterville goldmine and how they might compare to assay results and ore grades currently being drilled at the Bailieston HR3 target. Craig looks at Black Cat, Cherry Tree and other targets at Bailieston, before we move onto the blue sky potential at the Tambo Project, and the connection with ECR’s Head Geologist Dr Rodney Boucher. We end with some takeaway points for investors.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Drilling at Victoria Goldfields reveals visible gold in first drill

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focussed on Australia

is pleased to announce a drilling update from the HR3 area (“HR3”) of the Company’s 100% owned Bailieston Project in the Victoria Goldfields, Australia.

Craig Brown, Chief Executive Officer of ECR Minerals plc, commented: “I am pleased to announce the completion of our first diamond drill hole utilising the Company’s in-house drilling equipment, which is a notable event for the Company.

The hole was completed efficiently and safely and we are now pushing on with further drilling with the commencement of the second hole. We intend to continue drilling across various target areas within ECR license areas in the coming weeks and months.

The presence of a 5.3 metre wide reef (drilled thickness) with visible gold in the first drill hole core is a positive development and we look forward to receipt of assay results from the laboratory as soon as possible.”

HIGHLIGHTS:

This first diamond drill hole at HR3 was undertaken utilising the Company’s recently acquired drill rig and has reach a total depth of 300 metres. The drill rig has now commenced a second hole in the same location. The hole intersected the Byron Main Reef at 110 m and the information from this hole will allow us to establish the structural architecture and controls for the obvious gold mineralisation in this reef (and adjacent reefs) and in the wider HR3 prospect. The Byron Main Reef is 5.3 m wide (drilled thickness, true thickness unknown) and is milky, vuggy quartz with laminated margins. 1.3 m of core was lost drilling through the reef.

The current exploration drill programme was originally announced on 12 January 2021 and this announcement may be viewed through the following link:

https://polaris.brighterir.com/public/ecr_minerals_plc/news/rns/story/wvp81vw

The drill core from the first hole was transferred to the Company’s processing shed in Bendigo, Australia where the core was cut and analysed following which samples have been delivered to the laboratory today for assay analysis. The samples will be processed by the Gekko’s Assay Laboratory facilities in Ballarat, Australia and the assay results are expected in the coming weeks.

https://www.gekkos.com/en/solutions/lab-testwork/assay-lab

Preliminary core inspection has identified visible gold in the core and the Company has been utilising a portable x-ray fluorescence (“pXRF”) as part of the preliminary examination process. The pXRF has confirmed the gold content of a small speck seen in the core at 111.0 m.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Block Listing Application

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the gold exploration and development company focussed on Australia, announces that an application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for a block listing of securities in respect of 117,000,119 ordinary shares of £0.00001 each to be admitted to trading on AIM.

The New Ordinary Shares will be issued from time to time in order to satisfy certain warrants and options which may be exercised. It is expected that admission will become effective on 17 February 2021.

The block listings consist of:

  1. 32,745,000 ordinary shares in respect of the 11 July 2018 warrants exercisable at 1.125 pence per share, the “30 July 2018 Subscription Warrants Scheme”;

The warrants and options remain in uncertificated form and there are no changes to the terms and conditions of the warrants and options.

Following the Block Admission, the Company’s issued share capital will remain unchanged at 877,164,658 ordinary shares. The Company will make six-monthly announcements of the utilisation of the Block Admission, in line with its obligations under AIM Rule 29.

ECR Minerals #ECR CEO Craig Brown interviewed by StockBox Media

ECR Minerals #ECR CEO Craig Brown is interviewed by StockBox Media. Craig discusses the recent purchases, including the Midas drill rig, and how the company plans to set up its own laboratory to analyse drill samples and geo data.

Craig explains the drilling process and how owning the equipment and resource has improved efficiency of operations and ultimately a speeding up of the process.

With £4m in the bank, sufficient funding to take the company through to 2023, Craig says the quartz cores extracted are looking very positive, although the detailed analysis needs to be undertaken.

Craig explains how the team at the new broker will conduct site visits and prepare detailed analysis notes, plus the Shenyang Xinliaoan Machinery Co major shareholding, (first invested in 2017). The company, which has approaching $1bn in assets, supplies mining equipment, plus equipment for industrial and earth moving equipment.

As major shareholders, Shenyang will also provide operational support and equipment for ECR going forward.

In regard to JV interest, short term Craig sees the greatest potential at Bailieston and HR3, Bryron, Blue Moon, Black Cat, Cherry Tree South and other areas. HR3 mineralisation looks v similar to Fosterville.

There is still serious interest at Creswick. Technical due diligence has been completed, so currently the JV partners are awaiting the final legal documentation. The partners are well known in the industry, having worked with a number of billion pound listed companies.

Craig ends by saying he’s not so much interested in corporate deals, rathermore he wants to discover something ‘on the ground’.

“It’s incredible when you discover something from nothing, and discover there is $8bn of gold sitting there. That’s what we hope to do for ECR..”
