“SRK was a natural fit to assist in the continued advancement of the Wicheeda REE Deposit having worked so closely with the Defense Metals technical team during the recent PEA study. SRK is well-positioned to build on the successful PEA mine plan and guide the collection of advanced geotechnical and hydrogeological data that will contribute to an enhanced understanding of geotechnical risk and refinement of future project development scenarios.”

Seabridge Gold Inc. (NYSE:SA) has reached an agreement with Liard First Nation (LFN) for Seabridge’s 3 Aces Project in Canada’s Yukon territory.

Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSXV:BNCH) has reported new results from exploration drilling at the Marmot Zone. This includes additional assays that have more than doubled the length of the previously reported mineralized intercept in drill hole 21MLDD004 from 30.0 metres to 77.0 metres (m) core length of 1.11 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) and 35.93 g/t silver (Ag) or 1.56 g/t gold equivalent (AuEq). Benchmark’s CEO John Williamson said:

“The Marmot Zone results continue to demonstrate the new discovery potential that could add more gold and silver mineralization to it’s established multi-million ounce deposits. Benchmark will soon deliver a larger Mineral Resource Estimate from near 100,000 metres of new drilling in 2021 and 2022. We anticipate the new Resource to de-risk the Project with a majority of gold and silver ounces in the Measured + Indicated category.”

Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd. (NYSEAmerican:ASM) has announced drill results from the Oxide Tailings Project, including 17 drill holes for a total of 209 metres of drilling. David Wolfin, President and CEO of Avino, said:

“These results highlight the continuity of the tailings grade beyond the previous known deposition footprint. The gold grade in the oxide portion of the recent holes is encouraging and given the distance of the step out holes, we feel this will provide meaningful resource expansion significantly beyond what was described in the previous PEA. The Oxide Tailings project factors prominently into the Company’s growth strategy to achieve intermediate producer status.”
