Barksdale is committed to increasing shareholder value by acquiring, exploring, and de-risking high quality precious and base metal projects in the Americas. We operate under a simple philosophy that requires a disciplined approach to buying well and conducting thorough and systematic exploration. Underpinning this philosophy is a focus on obtaining assets that provide the appropriate mix of exploration potential, district scale property control, and optionality around potential exits.

Rick Trotman, President and CEO of Barksdale stated: “This is the first drill program in Barksdale’s corporate history, and we couldn’t be more excited to start testing the initial targets at San Javier. I was in Mexico to oversee the start of the program and am very pleased with the quality and professional nature of our team, including the drill crew. We look forward to providing additional updates as we advance the drilling program and begin to release technical updates to the market.”


Brigadier Gold Limited was formed to leverage what we believe will be the next major bull market in the natural resource sector, particularly precious metals. Our mandate is to acquire undervalued and overlooked projects with demonstrable potential for advancement. Led by a management team with decades of experience in mineral exploration and capital markets development, we are focused on advanced exploration opportunities in politically stable jurisdictions.

Rob Birmingham, CEO, comments, “The exploration team led by veteran geologist Michelle Robinson continue to expand on previous successes at the Picachos Project. We’re pleased to see the precious metals rich, copper discovery announced on August 4th is growing in scale and providing the company with exceptional targets for further inspection. Furthermore, we are excited with the discovery of high grade gold, silver and copper in rock chip channel samples at the historic La Gloria mine.”


Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, GSI is a precious metals production and exploration company primarily focused on silver.

Our first operating project, the Cerro Los Gatos Mine within the Los Gatos District, is located in the heart of Mexico’s silver belt, approximately 120 kilometers south of Chihuahua City, Chihuahua. Through a joint venture with Dowa Metals & Mining Co., Ltd. (Dowa), we purchased the necessary land and access rights to create today’s leading model of a modern silver mining operation in Mexico. The Los Gatos District covers approximately 103,000 hectares and includes 14 currently known zones of mineralization. GSI plans to progressively expand exploration and production throughout the Los Gatos District.

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.”

“The extremely high-grade intercept in our deepest drill hole CDH-077 has extended the high-grade ‘clavo’ at El Refugio a further 160m down dip. In this exceptional CDH-077 intercept we have observed mineralisation including abundant coarse gold and silver sulphides, consistent with having intercepted the ‘bonanza zone’ as predicted by the geologic model.”

“Drilling along the 4-Trench extension target has defined a new trend over a 500m strike length immediately adjacent to our Main Zone”, commented VP Exploration, Brodie Sutherland. “We are seeing mineralization in every hole along the trend with grades above 1 g/t gold in holes JES-21-53 and JES-21-44, 100m apart. This first pass of drilling has started to unlock the potential of a new parallel trend to our Main Zone which we are excited to test in our next phase of drilling.”
