AZTEC MINERALS - Fantastic drill results

In the medium term, nothing should stand in the way of rising precious metal prices. Gold and silver demand as jewelry, from the industry, and as crisis currency or inflation protection, form the basis for a perspectively higher price level. After an excellent performance last year, the prices of gold and silver are currently consolidating. For investors with an anticyclical approach, this opens up good investment opportunities. Exploration companies with high-quality projects, such as Aztec Minerals, historically benefit disproportionately from rising precious metal prices.

    "[...] We quickly learned that the tailings are high-grade, often as high as 20 grams of gold per tonne; because they are produced by artisanal miners, local miners who use outdated technology for gold production. [...]" Ryan Jackson, CEO, Newlox Gold Ventures Corp.

    Phase 2 of 2021 Drilling Program completed

    The Vancouver-based company is committed to discovering large, polymetallic mineral deposits in the Americas. The Canadians' core asset is the Cervantes project in Sonora, Mexico, which is operated as a joint venture with Kootenay Silver Inc, in which Aztec holds a 65% majority interest. The second prospective property in the portfolio is the Tombstone joint venture project in the historic Tombstone silver mining district in southeastern Arizona, USA. The ownership share of the Canadians is 75% here.

    Now Aztec Minerals reported fantastic Tombstone drill results with data from the final five holes (TR21-19 to 23) of the now completed 2021 Phase 2 drill program. The campaign consisted of 23 holes and 2,716 meters. All five holes intersected extensive and near-surface gold and silver mineralization and extended zones of mineralization at depth and along strike, below and west of the Contention open pit. The holes were drilled along the west side of the northern and central portions of the Contention open pit. They intersected mineralization over a north-south length of 400 meters, an east-west width of up to 150 meters and a maximum depth of 175 meters.

    Near-surface gold-silver mineralization confirmed and extended

    According to the Company, each of the five drill holes intersected near-surface, gold-silver mineralization, and three holes intersected old adits where most of the high-grade ore is believed to have been previously mined. Outstanding is that all five drill holes ended in high-grade mineralization. Four of the five holes ended in a zone of mineralization that showed incredible values ranging from 1,045 g/t gold equivalent to 1,997 g/t gold equivalent! All indications are that the main mineralized zones are open at depth and laterally.

    Drill hole TR21-22 returned the best results. Over a length of 65.5m, a gold equivalent of 3.39 g/t was detected near surface, at depths ranging from 21.3m to 86.9m. Within a deeper interval (77.8 to 85.4m), a high value of 22.15 g/t gold equivalent was detected over 7.6m. The drilling ended in a mineralized zone of a whopping 1,045 g/t gold equivalent.

    Much accomplished

    CEO Simon Dyakowski was pleased with the solid results. He continued, "Our 2020 and 2021 drill programs targeted the near-surface mineralization around and below the Contention pit to find an epithermal gold-silver vein deposit with significant tonnage and potential for open pit heap leach mining, and the results to date have clearly confirmed this potential. Having reported final drill results for 2021, we will now consider a Phase 3 core drilling program to extend the near-surface oxidized gold-silver mineralization to depths of 150-200m, as well as some much deeper holes at depths of 500-750m to test the Taylor polymetallic CRD massive sulphide mineralization underlying the near-surface epithermal mineralization."

    The 2020 and 2021 drill area covered a length of 900 meters, a width of more than 230 meters and a maximum depth of 175 meters, leaving gold-silver mineralization open in all directions. According to the Company, most of the silver and gold mineralized zones intersected in the 2020 and 2021 drill programs are located near and within the hanging wall and footwall of old underground pits.

    Main objective achieved with flying colors

    The main objective of the completed drill program was to further test near-surface, bulk-tonnage and epithermal gold-silver mineralization adjacent to and below the previously mined Contention pit through infill and step-out drilling. This objective has been achieved with flying colors, with the impressive drill results now released. The share price should react positively to the excellent data and the resulting potential. Future drilling is expected to focus on strike and dip extensions of the near-surface mineralization and go deeper to test larger, deeper targets. The Company's valuation of only CAD 16 million does not reflect the quality and potential of the projects.

    Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Newmont - Golden times

    • Gold

    The situation with gold is more than paradoxical at the moment. On the one hand, the Ukraine war is raging with the threat of spreading to other countries. On top of that, inflation rates are jumping to levels the world has not seen in more than 30 years. As the icing on the cake, the Zero-Covid lockdowns in China are hampering supply chains that are already broken. Gold should therefore explode. However, the reality is different. The precious yellow metal is currently struggling to reach the USD 1,800 per ounce mark. However, the crisis currency is likely to prevail in the long term and pave its way above new highs.

    BioNTech, BYD and Desert Gold: Shares for the rebound

    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • Biotechnology

    Is the rebound coming? After the heavy price losses of recent days and weeks, the market seems ripe for a countermovement. However, this would require a little more volume in the market. But then, especially companies that have not disappointed operationally should profit. BioNTech, for example, belongs to this group. The Company has published convincing figures, and analysts see up to 50% price potential. BYD's share price should also pick up speed again. Finally, the rapid shift to electric pureplay seems to be succeeding and HSBC has raised the price target. Gold was not a safe haven in the current correction. But it is worth looking at bombed-out stocks here as well. Desert Gold Ventures is one of them. The explorer has started a new drill program and secured financing.

    Barrick Gold, Edgemont Gold, Rio Tinto - Are gold stocks taking off again?

    • Gold

    With the start of the Ukraine crisis, the gold price skyrocketed, but since March 8, we find ourselves in a consolidation. The 200-day line is currently holding, and it could go up again from here. But let's look at the reasons for the weakness in the gold price. On the one hand, there is the strong dollar, which naturally puts pressure on the gold price, and on the other hand, bond yields in the US are climbing again. After the FED announced on May 4 that it would not raise interest rates by more than 0.5 percentage points, which was originally feared, the gold price jumped again. Demand for physical gold remains high. We look at three companies in the gold sector.
