Golden Minerals Announces New Resource Estimate at El Quevar’s Yaxtche Deposit

Golden’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Warren M. Rehn, notes, “We are pleased with the results of this independently?prepared estimate, as it presents a potentially viable mining opportunity for us in El Quevar’s Yaxtché deposit. Potential to increase the size of the Yaxtché deposit remains, as the deposit is open to the west. Additional high?grade silver targets identified by drilling exist in several areas near Yaxtché. We plan to expand on this new resource to enhance the potential viability of a possible operation….”

Almaden Exploration Drilling Hits 10.00 Meters of 2.11 g/t Gold Including 2.00 m of 8.17 g/t Gold Approximately 1.2 KM Southwest of PFS Pit at the Ixtaca Project Mexico

J.D. Poliquin, chairman of Almaden stated, “We are very encouraged by these results which are beginning to define a new mineralised zone well outside of the PFS pit and resource area. These results demonstrate the potential for discovery on the project and for the Ixtaca mine plan to grow with continued exploration. Ongoing drilling will continue to seek more such zones even as the engineering work and Feasibility Study progress.”

Defiance Identifies Large Target at San Acacio

“We are pleased that our recent exploration program confirms our geological model that the Veta Grande vein continues to pinch and swell along strike. IP and drilling have delineated a coincident target with strong potential to host a virgin silver shoot,” stated Peter J. Hawley, President and CEO. “While it is still in its early days, this proves that the Veta Grande’s potential continues along its 4.4km of strike length yet to be tested. We are excited with the target and look forward to drilling it.”

Alset to Work with CINVESTAV for Pilot Plant Tests

Allan Barry Laboucan, president and chief executive officer of Alset Minerals, said: “We have completed first-pass leach testing of composite sediment samples from our salars that show, with dilute acid, we can recover between 79 per cent and 97 per cent of the lithium in a matter of hours. Cinvestav has completed the advanced leaching analysis that needs to be carried out prior to pilot plant testing. This work will provide key data for various water temperatures, leaching times and acid amounts, which are important in understanding the low-cost potential of lithium recovery from our salars. With the help of Dr. Perez Garibay and his team at the Cinvestav lab in Saltillo, we can complete the work required to establish these low costs. This work will be potentially transformative for the company, and we are excited to move ahead. Once we have signed this collaborative agreement, we will report on the findings from the advanced leaching analysis completed by Cinvestav.”

Advance Gold Update to Shareholders on its Silver and Gold Projects

Allan Barry Laboucan, President and CEO of Advance Gold Corp. commented: “For a junior exploration company with a tiny market valuation we have a lot on the go. At our 100% owned Tabasquena silver mine in Mexico, we are planning a geophysical survey together with a follow up drill program. The well known Milagros silver mine lies approximately 8 kilometres to the south east of the Tabasquena mine. We believe that these two mines lie on the same structure.
