The junior exploration business in Canada follows a fairly predictable pattern: deploy drills as early in spring as the local climate allows, drill through the summer, begin reporting drill results in mid to late August and continue through until November.
Awful news from the Yukon. ATAC VP-Exploration, Julia Lane, died in plane crash yesterday.
Any exploration company CEO would be pleased to report a headline number of 204.6 grams per ton gold. For Goldplay (V.GPLY) CEO Marcio Fonseca, that is just the beginning. The drill result reported in the July 30 press release is part of a much larger story.
“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.
