  • Zinc: The Metal With The Best Outlook
    Tue, Dec. 9 BHP, GLCNF, RIO 3 Comments

    Summary

    • According to analysts, 2014 is the year when the zinc supply/demand-deficit began. In all due respect, one does not hear much in the media about zinc being an attractive commodity.
    • Experts and analysts worldwide agree that zinc will be among the commodities with the most extreme supply/demand imbalance and that the all-time highs from 2006 will be trumped significantly.
    • Several large zinc producing mines will go out of business in 2015 or 2016 due to depletion. Yet there exist only few zinc development projects globally with chances of success.
  • A Fundamental Economic Factor In The Rare Earth Space: Acid
    Tue, Dec. 2 MCP, REMX, CAPEX 5 Comments

    Summary

    • Acid is a commonly overlooked aspect in the evaluation of a REE deposit, although it is often the largest operational cost of a project.
    • This article discusses how a project’s viability is intimately associated with the consumption of acid.
    • In order to understand how and why acids are used in REE processing, the three main processing stages are explained: mineral processing, extraction and bulk recovery, and separation.

  • Pinion Uncovered: The Next Open-Pit In Nevada?
    Tue, Sep. 23 GSV 1 Comment

    Summary

    • Gold Standard Ventures Corp. recently published its maiden NI43-101 resource estimate on its 100% owned Pinion Deposit near Newmont's Emigrant Mine on the Carlin Trend in Nevada.
    • With 1.5 million oz gold, the resource estimate turned out bigger than expected as the phase-1 drill program was designed to confirm the historic resource estimate (around 840,000 oz gold).
    • The phase 2 drilling program starts any day and is designed to further increase Pinion's resource until the end of the year.
    • Mining giants like Newmont, Barrick, Agnico-Eagle or Goldcorp may have an interest in taking over Pinion in the future.
  • Gold Standard Ventures: How 1 Drill Hole Could Discover 1 Million-Plus Ounces Of Gold
    Thu, Jun. 26 GSV 7 Comments

    Summary

    • Yesterday, Gold Standard Ventures Corp. released the first assays from the phase-1 drill program on the Pinion Gold Oxide Deposit on the Carlin Trend in Nevada.
    • Hole PIN14-05, which we discussed in our last article, showed significant gold mineralisation in the lower breccia which is an unexpected surprise as the entire deposit may be mineralized as.
    • If the entire deposit is mineralized in the lower breccia, some 1 million ounces of gold could be added to the total resource. Phase-2 will prove that case.
    • The next round of drill assays is expected to be released shortly as the maiden NI43-101 resource estimate is scheduled for July.
  • Gold Standard Ventures: Uncovering The Mysterious Beauty Of The Pinion Gold Oxide Deposit
    Wed, Jun. 18 GSV 1 Comment

    Summary

    • During first half of 2014, Gold Standard Ventures Corp. succeeded in acquring 100% of the Pinion Gold Oxide Deposit on the Carlin Trend in Nevada.
    • A few weeks ago, phase-1 drilling started on Pinion to update the historic resource estimate (approximately 840,000 oz @ 0.9 g/t Au) into NI43-101 standards and potentially increase it.
    • We were on site to inspect current drilling and made some interesting findings and interpretations. We expect the release of drill results any day now.

    • Last week, drilling started on Pinion in order to upgrade and potentially expand the historic resource into NI43-101 compliant standards.
    • The Pinion Deposit is an oxide gold deposit right at the surface and amenable for heap leaching.
