The junior resource world runs on “news”. The most valuable news a company can bring to the market is drill results. Ideally, drill results which disclose good grades over broad intervals.

We’ve written before that GR Silver Mining Ltd. (“GR Silver Mining”) (formerly Goldplay Exploration Ltd.) (TSX-V: GRSL) CEO, Marcio Fonseca, is both a geologist and a former investment banker. It is a formidable combination and was front and centre in the company’s January 7, 2020 press release announcing a letter of intent in which GR Silver Mining would acquire a First Majestic Silver subsidiary which owns the past-producing Plomosas Silver Project. This project is located 5km from GR Mining’s San Marcial Silver-Gold Project in the historic Rosario Mining District in Sinaloa, Mexico.
