“Silver, in particular, has the potential to outperform gold significantly. For example, in the wake of the global financial crisis, the gold-to-silver ratio plummeted from 80:1 bottoming at 32:1, with the silver price topping out at ~$50/ounce. Recently the ratio hit a record 93:1, while the price is sitting at around $16/ounce. Yesterday, the ratio stood at 89:1 as shown in Figure 2.
On July 11, 2019 White Gold (.V: WGO) put out a press release indicating that it had identified new district scale high-grade gold trends on its properties in the Yukon. We had some follow-up questions and White Gold sent us over the answers.
Most exploration companies would be very happy to have delineated a high grade – low strip ratio pitable 43-101 silver resource pretty much as soon as they began to explore their property. For Marcio Fonseca, CEO of Goldplay Exploration (V.GPLY), that was just the beginning.
Just off the phone with Marcio Fonseca, CEO of Goldplay Exploration (V.GPLY). I am writing up our conversation now but the key takeaway is that today’s news release is the beginning of a significant news flow with drill results and trenching results on no less than eight target areas coming over the next few months.
Almost exactly two years ago I was on the Yukon Mining Alliance Media Tour and went to the Victoria Gold (V.VIT) Dublin Gulch Eagle Mine project, 80 bumpy kilometres from Mayo, Yukon. There, VP Exploration, Paul Gray took us on a tour of the proposed mine site. There were some roads bulldozed out of the bush, drill collars, a large camp which was somewhat empty and a vision. John McConnell’s vision of a 200,000 ounce per year gold mine.
Whether you think CO2 driven climate change is a “climate emergency” or a complete crock, the fact is that there is a lot of money looking for practical solutions to the problem of CO2. A lot of that money has gone into things like solar and wind power which, proponents say, will reduce emissions over time by generating electricity without burning fossil fuels. But what about the CO2 which has already been emitted? While climate scientists have been steadily revising temperature sensitivity estimates downward, there is a terrific political momentum behind the idea that CO2 and temperature are linked and that, despite a lack of scientific evidence, that link causes everything from sea level rise to rain “events”.
White Gold Corp’s (V.WGO) exploration and geological team led by legendary Yukon prospector, Shawn Ryan, and quarterbacked by VP Exploration, Jodie Gibson, is already in the field and as CEO David D’Onofrio said in a recent interview with MotherlodeTV: “This season is our most exciting yet and we are well underway.”
