Getchell再次在Fondaway Canyon钻探项目取得成功,于Colorado西南部收获迄今为止最佳的钻孔化验结果

2021.08.28 Getchell Gold Corp. (CSE: GTCH) (OTCQB: GGLDF) 继续在位于内华达州的旗舰Fondaway Canyon项目中获得绝佳的钻探结果,为其扩大2020年发现的高品位金矿化的目标迈向关键的一步。 本月早些时候,该公司公布的2021计划的第一个钻孔(FCG21-07)取得了令人印象深刻的结果。该钻孔在33米的不间断矿化中返回了3.0克/吨金,包括4.6米以上的7.8克/吨金层段。 而在本周,该公司宣布了第二个钻孔(FCG21-08)并得到了的更好的化验结果。该钻孔来自同一个井场,旨在进一步确定了Colorado西南延伸带。 Colorado西南部最好的钻孔 […]

Freegold Ventures: 资源扩张与勘探钻探在阿拉斯加最富有的砂金区同时进行

2021.08.19 阿拉斯加长期以来一直被列为世界上最好的金矿开采区之一,也是美国境内较大的黄金生产地。 该州丰富的采矿历史可追溯到19世纪中期,当时俄罗斯探险家首次在基奈河发现砂金,引发了断断续续的黄金发现。直到1867年所有权转让给美国,美国探矿者才得以北上,正式开启了持续了半个世纪的淘金热。 如今,几乎所有目前在美国运营的大型和小型砂金矿都位于阿拉斯加。该州目前拥有多达五座大型硬岩金矿,包括诺克斯堡(Kinross)、波戈(Northern Star)和肯辛顿(Coeur Mining)。 尽管过去阿拉斯加各地都在开采黄金,但费尔班克斯 (Fairbanks)、朱诺 (Juneau) 和诺姆 (Nome) 周围的地区目前主导着该州的黄金开采业。 在费尔班克斯附近,一家持有大量未开发黄金资源的初级矿业公司是Freegold […]

Getchell在2021年Fondaway Canyon钻探计划的第一个钻孔中发现大量金矿化

2021.08.12 随着其位于内华达州的旗舰Fondaway Canyon项目钻探工作的进展,Getchell Gold Corp.(CSE:GTCH)(OTCQB:GGLDF)现已收到2021年钻探计划第一个钻孔的化验报告。 结果当然也没有让人失望,并进一步证实了该公司关于Fondaway在世界排名第一的采矿区存在重要金矿化系统的假设。 钻孔结果 2021年计划的第一个钻孔 (FCG21-07) 是从Colorado矿坑向西南方向钻的(参见下图)。 FCG21-07与在2020年钻孔计划中的两个孔(FCG20-02和FCG20-03)是从同一个井场钻取的。当时在FCG20-02和FCG20-03中遇到的黄金截获物分别为1.9克/吨(超过43.5米)和2.0克/吨(超过49.0米),彼此相距75米。 FCG21-07在这两个2020黄金截流之间钻孔,以建立Colorado西南延伸带在这一宽距离上的横向连续性。它与比相邻钻孔品位更高的金矿层段相交,在33.0米的不间断矿化中,金品位为3.0克/吨,包括4.6米以上,金品位为7.8克/吨的层段。 这成为了连续第六个与Fondaway […]

Magna Gold: 金属价格,产量的上涨提升了墨西哥矿商的盈利能力

2021.08.05 在创下每盎司2075.47美元的历史新高近一年后,黄金价格现已回落至2020年初的水平。 几个月来,投资者逐渐远离黄金等避险资产,期望经济能够从这场疫情中完全复苏,央行最终会收紧政策。 然而,这些投资者可能需要重新考虑。 首先,不断增加的新冠病毒疫情仍可能使我们对经济复苏的希望破灭,特别是在新的Delta变异病毒肆虐的情况下。其次,我们还没有感受到央行维持经济运行的货币和财政政策的长期损害。 在最近接受彭博社采访时,Quadiga Igneo基金经理迭戈·帕里利亚(Diego Parrilla)提到,“人为低利率造成了太大而无法破裂的资产泡沫”;这将使央行很难在不冒崩溃风险的情况下实现正常化。 这在某种程度上得到了美联储鸽派消息的证实。上周,美联储主席杰罗姆·鲍威尔(Jerome Powell)坚称,尽管对经济持乐观态度,但“远未考虑加息”,这给那些指望美联储开始逐渐减少其货币支持的人泼了一盆冷水。 “就速度而言,逐渐变细的过程将是缓慢的,”帕里拉说。他曾在2016年正确预测了黄金将在5年内攀升至历史最高水平。 “我认为,推动黄金走强的因素不仅依然存在,而且实际上已经得到加强,”这位来自马德里的基金经理强调,并补充称,在未来3-5年的复苏过程中,他甚至可能看到黄金价格达到每盎司3000-5000美元。 正如世界黄金协会(World […]

ZincX Resources在Akie锌项目完成夏季的五孔钻探计划

2021.08.03 在恢复勘探活动近两个月后,ZincX资源公司(TSXV:ZNX)本周宣布其2021年钻探计划圆满结束,目标为位于BC省Akie项目的Cardial Creek锌矿床。 然而,公司在计划的结尾却迎来了一个惊喜。更新的预算和比预期更快的钻井速度使ZincX能够在原钻井计划的基础上完成另外两个共达850米的钻孔,而原先的钻井计划只包含了三个钻孔。 因此,在先前宣布的两个钻孔的基础上,公司本月后半段又完成了三个钻孔,使该项目扩展到了五个钻孔,共达2670米。 钻井更新 在最新公告中,ZincX宣布2021年钻探计划的第三个钻孔已顺利完成,并达到了预期的深度。 该钻孔(A-21-157)针对高品位岩心的东南部区域,周围有历史钻孔A-05-33、A-06-40和A-13-105。 该区域的钻探结果包括A-05-33中13.77米(真实宽度)的10.54%锌+铅和16.01克/吨银,以及A-06-40中10.36米(真实宽度)的8.52%锌+铅和11.55克/吨银。 钻孔A-21-157在369.10米的深度处与Cardiac Creek区相交,该区域继续与狭窄页岩层互层,井下深度为409.63米;总表观宽度为22.65米。 该区域的特点是有丰富的硫化物层,与黑色页岩的狭窄层段互层。这些硫化物矿层的特征是丰富的灰色闪锌矿层理和次级暗棕色细粒层间黄铁矿。富含闪锌矿的硫化物矿层在某些地方接近一米厚。 典型的“斑驳”结构在整个区域内较弱,但在闪锌矿占优势的岩层内局部强烈发育。矿化带以黑色页岩中丰富的层状至球状层状重晶石结束。 […]

对于全球工业金属勘探的竞争即将开始

2021.06.28 随着各国陆续为其人口接种新冠疫苗,并且由于较早的封锁、旅行限制和社会疏远而导致的感染率下降,全球经济正在缓慢的复苏,从而刺激了对汽车、电子产品、服装和城市更新基础设施(例如新的道路、桥梁和水系统)的需求。 鉴于大规模的联邦刺激措施和病毒的减弱,美国经济正处于升温状态,从而导致对商品和服务的需求超过了公司的供应能力。 再加上与病毒相关的供应链瓶颈,包括一些行业的劳动力短缺导致工资上涨,美国的通胀率创下了13年来最大增幅 (+5%)。 作为世界第二大经济体和最大的大宗商品消费国,中国相对毫发无损地走出了疫情。 5月份工业生产飙升6.6%,第一季度GDP则惊人的增长了18.3%;这是自1992年中国开始保持季度记录以来的最高增幅。 这就解释了为什么工业金属的价格会出现如此惊人的波动,特别是考虑到铜和锌等一些金属正面临短缺,这也是我们AOTH多年来一直在讨论的问题。 如下图所示,铜、银、锌、铅、镍、铝和钯在过去一年都出现了大幅上涨。 工业金属 工业金属在地壳中相对常见,比贵金属更便宜、更容易开采。 然而,尽管铜和镍的价格低于银和金,但工业金属由于其许多用途在世界经济中发挥着极其重要的作用。 铜被用建筑、交通和电信等众多行业,是经济增长的领先指标。它预测未来经济状况的能力使它获得了“经济学博士”的称号,因此有了“铜博士”的绰号。 […]

采银业已迈入巅峰时期

2021.05.25 现货银在2020年8月跃升至每盎司28.32美元,创下了七年来的最佳表现。尽管价格在去年秋天有所回落,但今年全年仍上涨了47%,比黄金22%的涨幅翻了一番还多。 而在一月下旬,自网友们在Reddit的WallStreetBets论坛发贴触发买入通知后,白银价格再一次上涨。在一系列的购买中,白银价格一度冲破了28美元,并曾触及31美元,然后回落。自3月份以来,这种白色金属的交易价格一直在26美元至28美元之间的一个相当窄的区间内浮动。 然而,由于货币和工业需求的强劲驱动,白银市场的前景极其乐观。 根据白银协会(Silver Institute)发布的2021年世界白银调查报告,今年全球白银需求量预计将超过供应量7%(供应量增加8%,需求量增加15%)。 全球需求将由对工业和投资级实物白银的投资主导。这是全球经济复苏的结果,也是基于2020年良好的硬币和银条购买量。因此,白银协会预计今年的白银价格将大幅上涨至33% 事实上,通过分析市场的供给和需求,我们可以进一步理解对白银的乐观叙述。在这样做的同时,我们更有信心称之为采银业的巅峰。 采银业的巅峰 大多数读者和投资者应该对峰值资源的概念有所耳闻;它所指的是产量年复一年不再增长的那一点。该资源在这一点达到一个巅峰,随即下降。 注意,我们并没有说“白银的巅峰”。在AOTH,我们区分了总银供应量(即回收银与开采银的结块)和矿山供应量。 在计算银需求与供应的真实情况时,我们不计算银回收(大多数回收银是工业级的)。我们更想知道的并真正关心的是每年开采的银的供应量是否满足每年对银的需求。而答案明显是没有! 举例说明: […]

The future of Canada’s nickel supply isn’t Indonesia

China says it has found a way to make “green” nickel chemical for EV batteries from nickel laterite deposits in Indonesia that could help to alleviate the coming supply deficit in the metal that is essential to electric vehicle batteries.

Don’t be fooled. The process itself is extremely polluting, and ‘ocean tailings ponds’ are anything but green. Thankfully car companies aren’t buying it.

Future nickel supply for battery-making is therefore unlikely to come from Indonesia or anywhere else where nickel laterites are mined.

Cashed-up Graphite One advancing Alaska project to prefeasibility with 2021 drill program and new hire

The global supply chain for graphite is severely vulnerable to disruptions due to the near monopolistic nature of the market.

Currently nearly all graphite processing takes place in China because of the ready availability of graphite there, weak environmental standards, and low costs.

Located on the Seward Peninsula in western Alaska, Graphite One’s (TSXV:GPH, OTCQB:GPHOF) Graphite Creek property hosts America’s highest-grade large flake deposit.

Canada’s EV ambitions

The supply-demand imbalance for graphite has meant a rising price environment for the mineral since 2017. Roskill analysts believe prices will likely remain high with resilient demand for EV raw materials, major suppliers getting hit by covid-19, and environmental crackdowns in China.

This is great news for companies exploring for graphite. Our Canadian favorite is Lomiko Metals (TSX.V:LMR, OTC:LMRMF, FSE:DH8C), hunting for the grayish-black mineral in the Canadian province of Quebec.

‘Not hard to dig a hole’ anti-mining Democrats say

Joe Biden’s position on mining has always been murky.

Publicly the veteran Senator turned US President says all the right things to show mine workers he is on their side. Away from the cameras Biden is listening to the anti-mining left wing of his Democratic Party controlled by liberal progressives and environmentalists, doing whatever he can to scupper new mining projects and oil pipelines.

If you remember the ’60s, you weren’t there

The US Federal Reserve is insisting that recent increases in the price of food, construction materials, used cars, personal health products, gasoline, and appliances reflect transitory factors that will quickly fade with post-pandemic normalization. But what if they are a harbinger, not a "noisy" deviation?
