Southern Intersects Shallow High-Grade Silver at the South Skarn Target Including 1.4 Metres Averaging 719g/t Ag, 14.2% Pb and 16.0g/t Zn (1791g/t AgEq) at Cerro Las Minitas

These highlight intercepts from drill hole 21CLM-159 which were intersected less than 200 metres below surface, fill a significant gap between mineralization identified in this current 2020-21 drill campaign and that identified in the earlier 2012-13 drilling and help build continuity within the known mineralized zones identified at the South Skarn target. Current modelling has identified three panels of mineralization at the South Skarn target, the largest of which can now be traced laterally for approximately 400 metres and up to 580 metres down-dip.

Santana Project Operations Update

“Despite the challenging weather conditions since late June we have managed to complete the planned process plant commissioning and bring the leaching and recovery systems online at their design capacities. In addition, mining activities to open up the Nicho Norte pit have advanced to a point where we now have sufficient working area to transition to the larger equipment fleet planned for the ramp up to commercial operations.” stated Darren Koningen, CEO.

GoGold Drills 1,181 g/t AgEq over 1.7m within 38.1m of 186 g/t AgEq at El Orito in Los Ricos North

“We continue to see strong results from our drilling program at El Orito, with wide zones of good potentially bulk mineable grades surrounding higher grade intercepts,” said Brad Langille, President and CEO. “We are very excited to see that the targets located with our IP geophysical program are yielding great results from drilling, such as those seen in hole LRGO-21-052. We have many additional targets to test over the coming months.”

Avino’s Results from Phase 1 of its 2021 Exploration Program; Drills 865 g/t of AgEq Over 0.80 Metres at Santiago and 820 g/t of AgEq Over 1.40 Metres at La Malinche

“The results of this initial drill program are encouraging as we had some significant grades hit at each location,” said David Wolfin, President and CEO. “We will integrate this information into our geological model to improve our understanding as we continue to look for economic deposits similar to our San Gonzalo mine while at the same time looking to add M&I resources at our Avino mine.”

Vizsla’s New EM Discovery Returns 4,431 g/t Silver Equivalent Over 0.30 Metres Within 2.5 Metres of 797 g/t Silver Equivalent in Proof-of-Concept Drilling

Vizsla President and CEO, Michael Konnert, commented: “The fact that we have confirmed successful electromagnetic targeting of the high-grade veins in the district, is ground-breaking for Vizsla and the Panuco district. This successful EM survey is a testament to the high-grade nature of the district which features massive to semi-massive sulphide mineralization which is typically uncommon in Mexican vein fields.”

Alien Metals Ltd. – Exploration planning for Donovan 2 Copper-Gold project, Mexico

“We believe that some of the geophysical targets at Donovan 2, along with the geological target at Los Alamos, have not been adequately tested. Along with reinterpretation of the geophysical data and surface geochemical work, we want to ensure we have optimised target generation to follow up with our systematic maiden drilling program.”

Mako Mining Provides Pre-Commercial Production Operating Results for May and June and Declares Commercial Production Effective July 1, 2021

Akiba Leisman, Chief Executive Officer of Mako states that, “this operating update highlights the extraordinary grades being mined and processed at San Albino even prior to reaching commercial production. Now that we have declared commercial production and have started mining at the Porcelana Zone, a zone with the highest grade-thickness profile encountered at San Albino, we expect to continue delivering similar operating results to those released today.”

Discovery Intersects 3,934 g/t AgEq Over 1.1 m and 3,424 g/t AgEq Over 1.1 m in Josefina Vein Drilling at Cordero

Taj Singh, President and CEO, states: “These latest drill results from Josefina have returned some of our highest-grade hits to date. With our Phase 1 drilling now complete we have transformed what started as a loosely defined vein with less than 1 km of strike extent into a prominent corridor with two well-defined veins with a total strike extent of more than 2.5 km.”

Vizsla Silver to Acquire 100% of the Panuco District

Vizsla President and CEO, Michael Konnert, commented: “The acceleration of the options and taking full ownership of the entire district within 20 months of signing is a major achievement for Vizsla Silver and speaks to our confidence in the Panuco District.”

Excellon Announces Q2 Production Results ­

“Platosa delivered a fourth consecutive quarter of production at historically high productivity rates,” stated Brendan Cahill, President & CEO. “We continue to see room for improvement, with our ongoing work to improve recoveries at Miguel Auza and, additionally, a sizeable inventory of ore and concentrate at quarter-end due to mill maintenance and weather conditions in late June.”

Newmont Declares Quarterly Dividend of $0.55 Per Share

Newmont Corporation today announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.55 per share of common stock, payable on September 23, 2021 to holders of record at the close of business on September 9, 2021.

Sierra Metals Reports Second Quarter 2021 Production Results including Record Throughput at its Yauricocha Mine in Peru

“Looking ahead to the second half of 2021, we anticipate seeing an improvement in production results over the first half of the year as we continue to manage the implications of COVID-19 using best practices. Our goal continues to be avoiding any mine closures while ensuring that strict protocols remain in place to protect the wellbeing of our employees as well as the local communities.”

Stephen Orr, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The initial drilling in CLG’s SE and NW zones is successfully upgrading the 3.7 million tonnes of Inferred resource to the Measured and Indicated category. Furthermore, the identification of additional offsets to a recently discovered new SE zone vein has extended the CLG mineralization beyond the current resource model and demonstrated that the southeast extension of the deposit is still open along strike.”

Our expertise in mining places us at the forefront of the industry. We are readily available with an international service.
