VANCOUVER – December 2, 2021, Providence Gold Mining Inc. (“Providence” or the “Company”) (TSXV: PHD) The Company is pleased to announce plans to drill up to 4,000 meters (13,000+ ft) on its potentially significant gold targets.
The drilling is subject to a unit financing of up to $1.3m CAD. The unit will consist of one common share at a price of $0.07 CAD with one warrant exercisable at a price of $0.15 for a period of one year from the date of closing. Commissions may be paid in the amount of 7% cash CAD and 7% brokers warrant exercisable at a price of $0.15 for a period of one year from the date of closing, subject to regulatory approval.
The historic high-grade producer has sat idle since profitable mining operations ceased in 1916 due to a legal dispute, a wildfire, and the pandemic of 1918. The property is located 40 minutes by road from the resource-friendly community of Sonora, California.
Ron Coombes states, “this is an exciting milestone for the Providence Group of Gold Mines as it will be the first-time drilling has exploited the numerous past-producing and near-surface gold targets. With as recently reported the McCarthy Mine returning assays of 75 to 95 grams/t the Company now has a high degree of confidence to successfully drill the significant numerous near-surface gold targets.” To view our presentation, click here.
With the exploration groundwork completed and modelled for drilling and a gold market which appears ready to explode the drilling for the first time of these numerous historic producing high-grade mines offers an excellent opportunity.
Orogenic-type gold deposits are well understood and with the Providence Group of gold mines having stope widths of 2 to 3 meters which historically reported multi ounce per ton material the Company’s sampling results verifies the presence of high-grade material within the numerous targets. We believe our timing could not be better.
The Company previously announced plans to move forward with re-milling of our developed stockpile which is not NI 43 101 compliant, however, Covid-19 and serious threats from nearby forest fires during the past 18 months created significant risks beyond the Company’s control forcing us to abandon those plans for the time being.
In better news, the Company’s team of geological experts has designed a drill program for two purposes: (1) to explore the near-surface high-grade targets with the objective of combining the potential bountiful hard rock with the stockpile material, greatly enhancing milling confidence, and (2) additional drilling to verify the significant hard-rock potential.
Having completed our data compilation, we have confidence to now drill the sizable potential of significant targets with accuracy.
