Andean American Achieves 35% Increase in Gold Sales for Quarter Ended December 31, 2021

Gold sales in the quarter reached 5,000 ounces, up 35% from the previous quarter.

Vancouver, B.C., February 20, 2005. Andean American Mining Corp. (TSX-V:AAG) is pleased to provide operations results for the period ending December 31, 2021 for its 100% owned Santa Rosa Mine located in Southeastern Peru.

Gold sales in the quarter reached 5,000 ounces, up 35% from the previous quarter, a new record and a milestone achievement for Hector Campos, Jose Antonio Rado, Jorge Alejos and their team at the Santa Rosa Mine. The substantial improvements came about through sharply improved recoveries averaging 69.97% recovery of gold for the 108,269 metric tonnes processed in the quarter.

(PRWEB) February 20, 2022 -- Gold stacked on the leach pads was 6,760 ounces in the quarter, up 21% over the same period last year, but down 22% from the previous quarter. Gold grades averaged 1.94g/t for the quarter down by 8% from the previous quarters. Gold sales at 5,000 ounces (4,730 gold and 270 from gold equivalents) were up 120% over the same quarter last year.

Despite difficulties in the quarter surrounding the ongoing development of the new Southern Structure Pit, the New Carelo Pit and the expansion activities to the ADR plant, record gold sales were achieved, reinforcing the continuous improvement of the last 4 quarters.

Silver stacked on leach pads was 140,411 ounces in the quarter holding an average grade of 40.3g/t. 16,270 ounces were sold in the quarter. A new record up 50 + % from the previous quarter.

Fresh ore mined, crushed, agglomerated and placed on pads in the quarter was 108,269 tonnes down 11% from the previous quarter but up 26% over the same quarter in 2003.

Gold and Silver Recoveries
Gold:
The introduction of higher concentrations of leachate has had the desired effect: more gold in solution. The enriched pregnant solution combined with the improvements in the adsorption, desorption, recovery (ADR) plant resulted in an average of 70% gold recovery for the quarter. Even though the ADR plant only worked at 88% efficiency in the Quarter.

This is for once-through processing of fresh ore. The recycling program finally got underway in late December. The recycle program, when in full swing, will substantially improve the overall recoveries.

It is important to note that the company has conservatively estimated an overall 69.7% recovery of gold after two recovery cycles (fresh and one recycle). Not sufficient recycling has been accomplished to date to change the basic calculation yet, however early indications from January will cause this overall recovery number to be pushed well into the 80% range.

For business purposes, all inventory calculations are based on 69.7% of gold stacked on pads as recoverable. Inventory is then the difference between actual sales and the 69.7% number. All gold in inventory is valued at basic production costs (lower of cost or market rule) and silver is not valued at all.

At December 31, 2004, greater than 35,000 ounces of gold and 1 million ounces of silver remain stacked on the pads awaiting recovery. Inventory values are in the books at less than $4.5 million Canadian. If recoveries are achieved as currently indicated the potential for substantial holding profits exists, as less than 17,000 ounces of gold are “on the books” as inventory and no silver is “on the books”.

Silver:
The company has decided to implement the “nacient chloruant” method for silver recoveries. Although this method is new to our company it is a proven system initially developed by a bright, then young, metallurgist named J.O. Marsden.

In 1992 John Marsden won the MPD Outstanding Young Engineer Award. He currently sits as chair of the MPD Nominating Committee for the Society for Mining Metallurgy and Exploration (SME). Mr. Marsden has several publications to his credit including a joint work with Frank McQuiston Jr. Mr. Marsden has been associated with over 40 gold silver plants and 80 odd heap leaching operations.

This “aqua rejia” approach is used in more than 20 mines for silver recovery. Each metallurgical solution is unique to the particular chemistry, PH, and mineralogy of each mine. The metallurgical team in Peru is diligently implementing this approach. Test results have yielded 90 – 95 % recovery with this method. This contrasts favorably with the previous method and should create an opportunity to improve recoveries by 1 to 2 hundred percent.

When the first full pad in the recycle program has been completely stripped of recoverable gold, it will be flushed with water, neutralized with hydrogen peroxide and then the new leachate be introduced. Recovery will take place over a 30 - 45 day period. This is expected in the 3rd calendar quarter.

Capital Expansion Projects:
ADR Plant:
December saw the commissioning of the new thermal regeneration oven, the new boiler, the completed carbon columns, the acid wash facility and the expanded electrolytic cells. The ADR plant now has 12 – 1000 kg carbon columns, plus 4 – 350 kg carbon columns.

It is now possible to operate at 96% efficiency, which, after thorough training will become our new objective. This 9% gain will have the additional benefit of occurring without added cost and should lower the cost of a produced ounce of gold by the same increment.

Initial PIT Development:
Major expenditures continued in the initial pit development of the Southern Structure and Carelo zone. The addition of a new D8 in January should substantially aid in timely completion and substantial cost reduction for the initial pit development of the Southern Structures. The sulfides at Carelo are being stockpiled as they are encountered, small amounts of oxide ores are being tested for recoveries with favorable results.

Conclusion:
A quarter filled with progress and frustrations as all programs seem to take longer than planned. Production was a little off due to both mechanical problems and slightly lower grade.

The recycle program finally started but only just late in December. The anticipated improvement in cash position will not be realized until the recycle program gets to 50,000 tonnes per month.

The completion of the last 3,000 square meters of Pad 5C has been stalled due to weather. Likewise the first 10,000 square meters of Pad 6. This directly affects the recycle program and can potentially handcuff fresh production if we do not get a weather window soon to allow completion.

The big victories in the quarter were:
- Continued growth in gold sales
- Completion of the expanded ADR plant
- Substantial improvements in gold recovery
- Solid progress on preparing 2 new pits
- Slightly surpassing overall recovery rates for gold (69.7% versus 69.97%).

Pacific North West Capital Corp. Higher Platinum -- Palladium Grades at Lismer Extension Zone 27 Metres at 3.43 g/t Pt/Pd/Au

Pacific North West Capital Corp. reports assays from the 500 metre long newly discovered Lismer Extension Zone on the River Valley Project.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 17, 2022 -- Pacific North West Capital Corp. (PFN: TSX, OTCBB: PAWEF) reports assays from the 500 metre long newly discovered Lismer Extension Zone on the River Valley Project.

The Lismer Extension Zone lies 400 metres southeast along strike from the mineral resource reported in the Dana Zones, and 400 metres northwest of the Lismer Zone mineral resource.

It is one of nine target areas, along the 15 kilometre long northern contact of the River Valley intrusive. The drill holes, in the Lismer Extension Zone continue to intersect wide widths of sulphide mineralization within the intrusive contact breccia.

Additional high-grade intervals have been intersected in the current exploration drill program which includes 27 metres at 3.43 g/t Pt/Pd/Au (3E) in DDH LR-140. Results to date are defining a mineralized zone that is between 20 and 30 metres in width and extends to at least 200 metres in depth and contains higher grades over significant widths, e.g. 7.0 metres at 3.75 g/t 3E and 2.0 metres at 16.62 g/t 3E in LR-141 (See Intersection Table). The drill holes were all drilled across strike (See Location Map). The dip of the zone varies along strike and to depth but generally it is to the southwest at between 65 and 75 degrees.

Eleven additional holes have now been drilled in the Lismer Extension Zone, all aimed at determining the trend and depth extent of the mineralized zone. All assays have been completed by SGS Laboratories and check assays by ALS Chemex. Please click on the map image to view entire map.

Other Mineralized Zones
Two other drills are now working on the Varley Zone approximately 3 kilometres southeast of the Lismer's Ridge Zone. This drilling will continue to evaluate and expand the mineralized zone that currently hosts an inferred resource of 2.7 million tonnes of 1.16 g/t (3E).

Three drill rigs are working on the property. Two drill holes have been completed in the Casson Zone, located within the River Valley Intrusive, 1800 metres south of the Dana Zone.

Narrow (less than 3.0 metres) sulphide zones were intersected in these drill holes. An IP survey has been completed in the Casson area, to evaluate this interior portion of the layered intrusive. All assays are pending. Other mineral zones that will be drill tested as machines become available include the Azen South, Azen North, Drop, and Jackson Flats Zones.

Phase 7 Budget Summary May 2004 to April 2005 -- Mapping, Geophysics, Drilling, Bulk Sample
PFN, in joint venture with Anglo American Platinum Corporation Limited (Anglo Platinum) is carrying out a $3.0 million Phase 7 program. The program plans for 15,000 metres of diamond drilling, metallurgical testing and the collection of a bulk sample. At the current time, a 40 tonne bulk sample has been collected for metallurgical studies, which will be used for metallurgical testing on the Dana North and Dana South Zones.

Particular emphasis is being placed on expanding targets identified by reconnaissance drilling, geophysics and geological mapping especially along the northern contact of the intrusive. The platinum-palladium mineralization has been identified to exist within the contact breccia zone occurring over a strike length in excess of 15 kilometres. The initial mineral resource estimates have been concentrated only in the Dana Lake and Lismer's Ridge Zones, a 3 kilometre long area. The Qualified Person for this release is John Londry, VP Exploration.

Freegold Ventures Drilling Recommencing on Grew Creek Gold Property, Yukon Territory - Additional Staking Expands Property - 30KM Prospective Targets

Freegold Ventures is pleased to announce the remaining Phase 1 2004 drilling results and the resumption of drilling on the Grew Creek Epithermal Gold Project in the Yukon Territory.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 17, 2022 -- Freegold is pleased to announce the remaining Phase 1 2004 drilling results and the resumption of drilling on the Grew Creek Epithermal Gold Project in the Yukon Territory.

Additional staking has been completed and the Grew Creek Property now covers 278 claim units and over 30km of prospective targets.

Freegold acquired the Grew Creek Property in the summer of 2004 and funded a 12 drill-hole program at Grew Creek throughout the fall and winter of 2004. The objective of the initial program was to confirm a northerly trend to the gold-silver mineralization. Previous operators assumed an east-west trend to mineralization and oriented their diamond drilling accordingly. The 2004 drill holes were drilled at right angles to the previous drill grid. Drilling results by Freegold indicate that mineralization does in fact trend north-south.

In addition to establishing a north-south control on the mineralization, the 2004 diamond drill holes tested areas outside of the previously defined ore blocks. The program successfully intercepted significant high-grade gold mineralization outside the area where earlier operators calculated previous resource estimates.

Drilling will resume the week of February 20th, 2005 and will test several comparable targets to the Main Zone, identified by geological, geochemical and geophysical surveys carried out prior to 1996. Limited drilling had been carried out in some of these areas by previous operators; however, again was focused on potential east-west controls for the mineralizing systems. Based on the results from the 2004 program, the next phase of drilling will test for northerly trends to these extensional targets. The Phase 1 2005 program is budgeted at $250,000 and is 100 % funded by Freegold.

The results of the 2004 program indicate an extensive low-sulfidation quartz stock-work system flanking high-grade veins that are focused within breccia zones along the trend of the mineralization.

In addition to the principal high grade gold vein target, attention is also being given establishing a bulk mineable resource (1-2 grams) which may be amenable to heap leaching. In addition to drilling, Freegold's geological consultants have recommended geophysics and bulk sampling for 2005.

The table summarizes the results from the 2004 drill program. Assays by ALS Chemex. Lost core sample intervals assigned a grade of zero.

The quartz-adularia vein and vein stock-work system at Grew Creek in the Main Zone has been faulted into at least four separate segments.

Segment Number Three intersected in the first reported drill holes (GC-227 44.2 m grading 4.3 gm/ Au and 7.9 gm/t Ag including 6.3 m grading 22.1 gm/t Au and 45.1 gm/t Ag). This segment has been cut to the north by a fault intersected in GC-231. The intensity of mineralization decreases to the south of this block as indicated in step out drill holes GC-228 -- 230. The segment is open to the North and to depth.

Segment Number Two was intersected in drill holes GC-233, 234, and 236. 1988 drill hole GC-29 intersected the high-grade vent mineralization 25 metres north of GC-233 that yielded an assay of 42.1 gm/t gold and 284.1 gm/t silver over 16.5 meters (not true width). The segment is open to the North and South and to depth.

Segment Number One at the western edge of the deposit was intersected in drill holes GC-232 and 235. The vent mineralization exposed at surface within this segment averaged 3.33-gm/t gold and 5.25 gm/t silver. The segment is open to the North and South and to depth.

Segment Number Four was not tested during this phase of drilling. 1988 drill hole GC-39 intersected vent mineralization north of the offsetting fault that averaged 54.90-gm/t gold and 54.5 gm/t silver over 6.0 meters (not true width). The segment is open to the North and South and to depth.

Vulcan Minerals Inc. - Exploration Update

St. John’s - Newfoundland - Vulcan Minerals Inc. (“the Company” TSX-V: VUL) provides an update on exploration activities.

St. John’s, Newfoundland (PRWEB) February 12, 2022 -- Vulcan Minerals Inc. (“the Company” TSX-V: VUL) provides the following update:

Seismic Program:
The seismic data recently acquired in the Bay St. George Basin has been processed and is currently being interpreted. The new data is primarily focused on the Hurricane Prospect approximately 20 kilometers south of the Flat Bay project in Western Newfoundland. The Hurricane Prospect covers approximately 100 square kilometers along the Western flank of the Bay St. George basin and provides multiple target zones based on seismic interpretation. The new seismic data will assist in target selection for the 2005 drill program.

Storm Prospect:
The Company also reports that Terralliance Inc. has agreed to an extension of their farmout agreement on the Storm Prospect to July 28, 2005. The Storm Prospect is situated approximately 10 kilometers northeast of the Flat Bay Project. It consists of an anticline structure (approximately 20 square kilometers) with marine and non-marine sandstone reservoir targets as well as limestone targets. These targets represent different rock types of a younger age than the reservoir at Flat Bay, thus providing better primary reservoir quality potential. Terralliance may earn a 50% working interest in the Storm Prospect by paying 66 2/3rds of the drilling and completion costs on the earn-in wells.

Flat Bay #1
The Flat Bay #1 well encountered pumping problems during the testing phase in the summer of 2004. Residual frac sand at the bottom of the hole causes the pump to malfunction: Flat Bay #1 is a shallow oil discovery at 195 meters which requires further pumping to retrieve all the frac fluid from a previous stimulation operation before any determination of oil flow can be made. The Company is reviewing options to resume testing of the well in a cost-effective manner. However operations would not commence before the Spring of 2005.

2005 Drill Program:
Hydrocarbon shows in the recently drilled Flat Bay #2 well confirm the existence of a large-scale active petroleum system in the basin. Up to now, the focus has been on only one reservoir target, the Fischells Brook conglomerate-sandstone. The 2005 drilling program will test other potential reservoirs within the Storm and Hurricane Prospects. Preliminary interpretation of the new seismic data on the Hurricane Prospect indicates numerous targets of varying depth with multiple trapping scenarios on this very large structure. The number of wells to be drilled in the upcoming program will be a function of the depths of the selected targets. At this time it is anticipated that four wells will be drilled. A solicitation for expressions of interest from drilling contractors has been sent out. It is the Company’s plan to acquire a rig for a late spring-early summer commencement of the drill program. Scheduling will depend on rig availability. The Company has sufficient funds to carry out the program.

W.R. Grace and seven top executives conspired to release asbestos and to hide health problems at its asbestos–contaminated vermiculite mine in Libby, Montana, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

(PRWEB) February 11, 2022 -- W.R. Grace and seven top executives conspired to release asbestos and to hide health problems at its asbestos–contaminated vermiculite mine in Libby, Montana, according to the U.S. Department of Justice (U.S. v. W.R. Grace & Co., U.S. Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, #03-35924). A grand jury indictment accuses the company of exposing its employees to asbestos, failing to disclose air monitoring results, interfering with an investigation by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and giving away asbestos–containing materials to schools and local residents. Charges include clean–air act violations and wire fraud as well as conspiracy.

From 1963 through 1990, Grace operated a vermiculite mine in Libby that was contaminated with asbestos. Used in soil conditioners and insulation, vermiculite is a metal ore that can be heated to form a light–weight, fire–resistant substance. The Libby vermiculite was shipped to factories throughout the nation, endangering workers who were exposed to asbestos during processing. It was formulated into a type of insulation that may be contained in millions of homes.

“The situation in Libby provides an example of the shameful treatment that many workers have received from asbestos-related industries,” said Alan Brayton, founding and senior partner of Brayton Purcell, a law firm representing asbestos victims. “Many people are not aware of the extent of the damage caused by asbestos. It is responsible for an aggressive cancer known as mesothelioma as well as for asbestosis, which is a painful scarring of the lungs. These diseases take decades to develop, and we may only be seeing the beginning of the problem.”

The Brayton Purcell law firm provides further details about vermiculite and the charges against Grace on its specialty web site, Asbestos Network, at http://www.asbestosnetwork.com/news/nw_020805_grace_indict.htm . The site also discusses asbestos-related diseases and asbestos exposure.

Doe Run Peru Reports Drop in Emissions, Blood Lead Levels

Emissions from Doe Run Peru’s La Oroya facility and blood lead levels among workers and in the community have improved significantly, the company reported Wednesday.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 10, 2022 -- Emissions from Doe Run Peru’s La Oroya facility and blood lead levels among workers and in the community have improved significantly, the company reported Wednesday.

“When we bought the lead smelter in 1997 we committed to working to address the 75 years of health and environmental issues left by the previous owners,” said Doe Run Peru President Bruce Neil. “The work we have been doing over the last seven years in partnership with the community has resulted in real progress.”

Blood lead levels among workers are now down 31 percent from where they were when Doe Run Peru bought its metallurgical complex from the Peruvian government in 1997, Neil said, adding that reduced lead exposure at the plant translates to reduced lead exposure for the workers’ children as their parents are no longer bringing home lead dust on their clothing.

Additional investments in the community and in support of the medical outreach by the Peruvian Health Ministry have resulted in a 17 percent reduction in blood lead levels of those high-risk children identified in a company-sponsored study, Neil noted.

Doe Run Peru supports state health officials with efforts including funding and helping carry out health awareness campaigns with community groups and social workers to educate families on good hygiene and nutrition techniques to combat lead exposure. In addition, the company supports a local soup kitchen that provides a daily meal to La Oroya’s neediest children.

“We have spent more than $140 million so far and are going to spend an additional $150 million on health and environmental improvements that will build on this success over the next six years,” Neil said. “Our job will be done only when these health concerns are addressed for all the children in La Oroya and we are working with public health officials and making improvements every day.”

Doe Run Peru’s investments in facilities improvements have also resulted in significant progress on emissions, Neil noted.

“Emissions from our stack are down 30 to 40 percent, and we expect to report further reductions later this year,” he said. “In addition, we are on schedule on enclosing plant buildings – a significant source of emissions – and we have begun the initial work on a plant designed to remove sulfur dioxide from our airborne emissions.”

Discharges into local rivers have also been reduced by more than half and the company projects that it will have eliminated all discharges by the end of next year.

“We understand that our role in the community is about more than just providing jobs,” he said. “We take our work to improve health and the environment very seriously and are committed to improving conditions for the people of La Oroya.”

The Doe Run Company, along with its subsidiaries, is a privately held natural resource company focused on environmentally sound mineral production, recycling and metals fabrication. Based in St. Louis, the company and its subsidiaries serve as North America’s largest integrated lead producer and third-largest total lead producer worldwide, employing more than 4,000 people. The company and its employees are committed to keeping its operations and communities clean and safe while producing essential raw materials – lead, zinc, copper, gold and silver – that are needed for everyday life. Doe Run and its subsidiaries have U.S. operations in Missouri, Washington and Arizona, and South American operations in Peru.

Himalayan Rock Salt Crystal Lamps Naturally Improve Well-Being and Indoor Air with Ions and Beauty

Salt lamps have gained considerable popularity in homes and businesses across Asia and Europe for the healthful ionic benefits and warm, soothing light they bring. This is a fast-growing trend in America now, and we'll explore some of the reasons why this Himalayan salt is so unique and helpful to sufferers of asthma, allergies, migraines, fatigue, and much more.

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 7, 2022 -- Well-known as the "Salt of the Earth", Himalayan salt crystal is over 250 Million years old and is essentially the captured bio-photonic content from a pristine time in our planet's history. As ancient primordial oceans dried up because of climate change, this salt is what was left over. Through hundreds of millions of years of intense heat and pressure from tectonic plates shifting in "continental drift", the Himalayan salt was crystallized. From that very ocean, life began on our world; it is often considered the "soup of life" - if this is the case, then Himalayan rock salt crystal is the broth...the "bouillon cube" if you will. Within Himalayan salt can be found all 84 elements which comprise the human body and has been found to improve wellness and bodily functions with regular use.

Table salt is completely unwholesome and the proven cause of numerous health issues. Common rock salt and sea salt, while a natural and better alternative to iodized sodium chloride, lacks any real benefit similar to Himalayan salt. None of the kind of ionic health benefits resulting from placing one of our beautiful rock salt crystal lamps on your desk, next to your bed, in the den or living room, waiting rooms, spas, salons, restaurants, or yoga and meditation studios. People notice the difference. Ionicsalts.com has done product shows for the public and noted immediate results from asthma and allergy suffers who stand "in the zone" looking and speaking with us. Testimonials received make a compelling case for the effectiveness.

Study after study indicates the great effects of these lamps and salt crystal products. For speleotherapy, salt crystal lamps are preferred tools by bringing the underground climato-therapeutic element of some of the world's more well-known and larger salt mines; such as the Solzbad-Salzeman mine in Austria, Seiged salt mine in Romania, the historical Polish Wieliczka mine, Nakhichevan mines in Azerbaijan; and of course, the ancient Khewra salt mines in the Himalayan foothills of Pakistan. The Khewra salt mines have a known history dating back to the time of Alexander the Great (327 BC). This wondrous resource is about 125 miles south of Islamabad and 150 miles west of Lahore, Pakistan.

Salt lamps are effective. Experts in Feng Shui, speleotherapy, halotherapy, reiki, ayurveda; as well as holistic, homeopathic, and natural medicine researchers and aficionados are quickly learning how powerful and unique lamps of salt crystal are.

Golden Eagle Receives Offer for Funding of $3.5 Million

Golden Eagle announced today that it has received a non-binding letter of intent for the investment of $3.5 million over the next eight months in equal monthly amounts from Polion do Brasil, S.A. (“Polion”), a Brazilian investment group.

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (PRWEB) February 2, 2022 -- Golden Eagle International, Inc. (OTCBB-MYNG)—January 31, 2005--- Golden Eagle announced today that it has received a non-binding letter of intent for the investment of $3.5 million over the next eight months in equal monthly amounts from Polion do Brasil, S.A. (“Polion”), a Brazilian investment group.

“We are extremely pleased that Polion has offered these substantial funds to Golden Eagle. We anticipate that these funds, once received, will allow us to cover current working capital requirements. We also anticipate that once we begin receiving this investment, we will be able to start the process of dismantling our Gold Bar mill and plant in preparation for shipping and re-erecting it on our Buen Futuro project in eastern Bolivia,” stated Terry C. Turner, Golden Eagle’s CEO. “Bringing the Buen Futuro gold and copper project on-line in 2005 is our highest priority. We intend to continue seeking additional debt financing of $10 million to complete the Buen Futuro project and bring the copper recovery circuit on faster than projected.”

In a Letter of Intent, Polion do Brasil, S.A., expressed its intention to invest $3.5 million in Golden Eagle by purchasing 3.5 million convertible preferred shares at $1.00 per share in eight equal monthly purchase amounts of $450,000. As these preferred shares are issued, they will earn a fixed annual dividend of 8% from their date of issue, which is also convertible to common shares. After a minimum holding period of one year on each monthly share purchase, Polion’s preferred shares may be converted to Golden Eagle common shares at 50% of the market price per share on the date of conversion, or $0.10 per share, whichever is greater. However, if Golden Eagle’s shares trade at $0.15 per share or less for the 15 trading days prior to conversion, then Polion may convert at 50% of the market price per share down to a minimum floor of $0.05 per share.

As long as Polion holds a minimum of 100,000 shares of preferred stock, it will be entitled to name one director to Golden Eagle’s Board of Directors. Based on discussions between Golden Eagle and Polion, Golden Eagle is optimistic that Polion will meet its investment commitment, however there are no guarantees that the funding offer will be completed as outlined.

Golden Eagle owns the Gold Bar mill and plant located in Eureka, Nevada. The Company has been preparing the engineering for the dismantling and re-erection of its mill and plant on its Buen Futuro site in Bolivia for the past six months, investing $500,000 in the process. Concurrently, Golden Eagle has carried out site preparations, surface rights acquisitions and infrastructure improvements on its Buen Futuro gold and copper deposit located 160 miles north of Santa Cruz, Bolivia, over the course of the past year.

The Buen Futuro project has current estimated proven and probable reserves of 84,000 troy ounces of gold and 82 million pounds of copper. However, the company believes that it can expand its proven and probable reserves with its projected drilling program within the zone of influence of its current reserves.

The company is still advancing its debt financing applications for $10 million with the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) and the Andean Development Corporation (ADC). Golden Eagle’s CEO and CFO will be meeting with representatives of the ADC in La Paz this week.

‘We believe that our debt financing position is considerably enhanced by Polion’s expression of its intent to fund $3.5 million,” said Mr. Turner, the company’s CEO.

Golden Eagle also announced that it has discontinued its joint-venture with a small operator in the Tipuani Gold District. With the escalating price of diesel fuel and other operating costs, as well as the nature and size of the operation, Golden Eagle projected that the joint-venture was not going to achieve suitable returns.

Golden Eagle International, Inc. is a gold exploration and mining company located in Salt Lake City, Utah; and La Paz and Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The company is currently focusing its efforts on developing its mining rights on its Buen Futuro project within its 136,500 acres (213 square miles) in eastern Bolivia’s Precambrian Shield. Buen Futuro is projected to produce 5,900 troy ounces of gold and 4.4 million pounds of copper per month once brought on-line. The company also owns mining rights on 49,900 acres (77 square miles) in the Tipuani Gold District located in western Bolivia, which has produced 32 million ounces of gold in its known history. Golden Eagle is a mining company with a social conscience, having provided many humanitarian programs at its mine site, including the only hospital, doctor and nurse in Cangalli, Bolivia, for the past eight years, as well as having provided for the educational needs of the students of the area. The Company highly recommends that you review its disclosures, risk statements, previous press releases, annual reports, quarterly reports and current reports found at its website: www.geii.com

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Risks:
Some of the statements in this press release are forward-looking statements and as such are based on an assumed set of economic conditions and courses of action. These include the ability of Golden Eagle to obtain the necessary financing on reasonable terms, estimates of mineral reserves and future production levels, expectations regarding mine production costs, expected trends in mineral prices, and statements that describe Golden Eagle’s future plans, objectives or goals. There is a significant risk that actual results will vary, perhaps materially, from results projected depending on such factors as changes in general economic conditions and financial markets, changes in prices for gold and copper, technological and operational hazards in Golden Eagle’s mining and mine development activities, uncertainties inherent in the calculation of mineral reserves, mineral resources and metal recoveries, the timing and availability of financing, governmental and other approvals and other risk factors listed from time-to-time in Golden Eagle’s Form 10-K and its other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Nolan Gold Project Lode Exploration Progress Report #2

The exploration program to locate lode sources for the Nolan Placer Gold nuggets has been, and will be, carried out as weather permits.

Fairbanks, AK and Vancouver, BC (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 1, 2022 -- SILVERADO GOLD MINES LTD. OTCBB: SLGLF / Frankfurt: SLGL / Berlin: SLGL
The exploration program to locate lode sources for the Nolan Placer Gold nuggets has been, and will be, carried out as weather permits. The Nolan Project is located north of the Arctic Circle, 280 road miles from Fairbanks, Alaska.

The first two trenches cut to investigate anomalies from a 2004 ground VLF-EM (very low frequency-electromagnetic) survey have intersected gold mineralization. The survey was conducted on the slopes above the placer mined areas to assist in locating lode sources for the placer nuggets. Project geologists had previously identified the “Solomon Shear Trend”, an airborne resistivity low trending northeasterly and coincident with gold – arsenic – antimony soil geochemical anomalies as a probable source area. (See Sept 27, 2021 Press Release). The accompanying map shows VLF-EM conductors within the Solomon Shear Trend. To view this map go to http://www.silverado.com/maps/feb0105.htm

Trench A showed four zones of quartz – carbonate  stibnite veinlets (stibnite is an ore of antimony) over a 90 foot section of trench. Values from grab and select chip sampling in the mineralized section were: gold 0.1 to 1.7 ppm (parts per million), (0.003 – 0.05oz/ton), arsenic 100 to >3000 ppm, and antimony 100 to >10,000ppm.

Trench B was cut about 800 feet along the strike of the mineralization northeast of Trench A. Two vein bearing anomalous zones, 70 and 100 feet wide, separated by 30 feet of unmineralized rock, were encountered. Values were: gold 0.1 to 1.0 ppm (0.003 – 0.03oz/ton), arsenic 200 to >4000ppm, and antimony 100 to >10,000ppm. A one to two foot wide sheared vein with massive stibnite was found, coincident with the axis of an electromagnetic conductor. Work on further exposing this zone stopped due to adverse conditions and will resume when weather permits.

Test pitting on a vein on Workman’s Bench in 2003, a mile southwest of the above trenching, recovered gold nuggets with stibnite attached, showing that there is a strong spatial relationship between gold and antimony.

Trench C was cut west of Trench A, but did not reach bedrock for most of its length. Samples of gravel were anomalous in antimony (103 - 236ppm average 161 ppm) along a 100ft section of the trench pointing to a source uphill.

Some additional power operated sampling tools will be taken to the project to enhance sampling of the frozen ground.

The Company is very encouraged by the success of the VLF-EM survey, given that gold mineralization was encountered in the initial tests, there are many more conductors to investigate, and the stibnite bearing vein in Trench B shows multiple episodes of mineralization which is an important feature in the search for economic lode gold deposits. Arsenic and antimony are commonly associated with gold deposits therefore the strongly anomalous results for those elements from the trenching and drilling are also very positive.

Samples were submitted to ALS Chemex and subjected to standard analytical procedures. Sample blank and follow-up metallics assays provided quality control. All work was carried out under the management of Mr. E. Armstrong, CPG, President of Silverado’s Alaskan Subsidiary and a qualified person under NI 43-101.
