Gold Basin Resources Initiates Q2 Drill Program to Expand and Delineate Resources at Gold Basin

Gold Basin Resource Corp

Gold Basin Resources CEO Colin Smith joined Steve Darling from Proactive to announce that the company has secured a driller and is preparing to commence rig mobilization. The drilling is set to begin in June as part of the company’s fully-funded Q2 reverse circulation drill program. This program will focus on resource expansion and delineation at the Stealth Deposit and the Gap Zone at located in northwestern Arizona. Smith elaborated that the company’s exploration efforts will target the Gap Zone, which remains sparsely drilled and open in all directions. The Gap Zone is situated between the high-grade Stealth and Red Cloud oxide gold deposits. The northwest-trending Stealth Fault, which hosts the Stealth Deposit, Gap Zone, and Red Cloud Deposit, extends 500 to 900 meters southwest of and parallel to the Cyclopic Deposit. This fault has been mapped for over 8 kilometers to the northwest and 3 kilometers to the southeast, indicating significant potential for resource growth. The drilling program aims to better define the mineralization within the Gap Zone and to explore the continuity and extent of the gold-bearing structures. The Stealth Fault's geological characteristics suggest it is a major control on gold mineralization in the area, making it a prime target for further exploration. Gold Basin Resources is also working towards the Project’s maiden NI 43-101 oxide gold resource estimate, which is expected to be released later this year. This resource estimate will be a significant milestone for the company, providing a clearer picture of the project's potential and laying the groundwork for future development plans. Smith emphasized the importance of the upcoming drill program, stating that it represents a critical step in advancing the project. The results from this drilling will not only help to expand the known resources but also improve the understanding of the geological framework, aiding in more precise targeting for future exploration.

Cerro De Pasco Resources Granted Land Easement for Major Exploration Campaign

Cerro de Pasco Resources Inc

Cerro De Pasco Resources CEO Guy Goulet joined Steve Darling from Proactive to share significant news about the company’s progress. Cerro De Pasco Resources has been granted a long-awaited Land Easement via Supreme Resolution, which provides access to the surface areas corresponding to its wholly owned El Metalurgista Concession and Quiulacocha Tailings Project. This easement marks a major milestone for the company as it allows for the commencement of a comprehensive exploration drilling campaign. Goulet explained that the Supreme Resolution resolves a longstanding deadlock with the state-owned Activos Mineros SAC, enforcing Cerro De Pasco Resources' legitimate rights as the holder of the El Metalurgista Concession. This resolution enables the company to explore and eventually exploit the QT Project. The Government's decision, following concerted action led by the Ministry of Energy and Mines and a rigorous approval process, signifies the start of full-scale project operations in Cerro de Pasco. Land easements of this nature have only been granted a few times in Peru's history, underscoring the importance and rarity of this achievement. The company has demonstrated full compliance with all requirements to gain access to the El Metalurgista area and is set to begin drilling during the forthcoming Andean dry season, starting in June. Cerro De Pasco Resources plans to complete a 40-hole drilling program, initiating the first phase of the QT Project in the coming months, coinciding with the dry season in the Peruvian Andes. This extensive drilling program will include geophysical studies, laboratory testing, mineralogy testing, resource estimation, and economic assessment. The objective is to compile a comprehensive 43-101 resource report, providing detailed insights into the project's potential. Goulet emphasized that this land easement is a crucial step forward for Cerro De Pasco Resources. It not only facilitates immediate exploration activities but also sets the stage for long-term project development. The company is committed to leveraging this opportunity to fully explore the QT Project, which holds significant promise for future mining operations.

American Rare Earths Identifies Zircon Co-Product Potential at Halleck Creek

American Rare Earths Ltd

American Rare Earths Limited CEO Donald Swartz joined Steve Darling from Proactive to announce the promising zircon co-product potential alongside Rare Earth Elements (REEs) processing at the Halleck Creek project. This development is part of a research collaboration with the School of Energy Resources at the University of Wyoming. Zircon supply is currently limited but is crucial for high-growth industries such as ceramics, electronics, and nuclear energy, all of which are experiencing increasing global demand. Zirconium, the primary mineral in zircon, can be efficiently separated and upgraded due to its high density. This process can be integrated into the REEs pre-concentration steps in the Halleck Creek flowsheet, potentially providing substantial economic value when produced as a co-product alongside REEs. Historical assay results for zirconium at Halleck Creek indicate an average in-situ grade of 2,077 parts per million (ppm), compared to the average crustal abundance of 300 ppm, highlighting the significant concentration at this site. Swartz explained that through their research collaboration with the University of Wyoming, ARR has found that zircon is more prevalent at Halleck Creek than previously believed. Current beneficiation work includes testing methods to separate and further concentrate zirconium using gravity separation and the magnetic removal of paramagnetic minerals to upgrade the material. These processes aim to maximize the economic potential of zircon as a co-product, enhancing the overall economics of the Halleck Creek project. The exploration and development efforts at Halleck Creek are focused on realizing the full potential of the site. The identification and extraction of zirconium alongside REEs could generate significant additional revenue for the project. This dual-product approach leverages the existing infrastructure and processes for REEs, making the extraction of zirconium both efficient and cost-effective. Swartz emphasized that this opportunity has the potential to transform the economic landscape of Halleck Creek. By diversifying the product output to include both REEs and zirconium, ARR is strategically positioning itself to capitalize on the growing demand for these critical materials. The successful integration of zirconium extraction into the REEs processing flow could lead to improved project viability and profitability.
