Interview with Leigh Curyer, CEO of NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSX: NXE, OTCQX: NXGEF): Flagship Arrow Mega-Deposit in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada, Has Unique Technical Advantages over the Existing Producing Uranium Mines
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSX: NXE, OTCQX: NXGEF) is a British Columbia corporation with a portfolio of highly prospective uranium exploration assets in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada. We learned from Leigh Curyer, CEO of NexGen Energy, that their flagship project, the Arrow Deposit, is exhibiting some very clear unique technical advantages over the existing producing uranium mines, particularly for the mega-deposits in Canada: it is 100% on land while other deposits are under lakes; it is 100% contained in the competent basement rock, so it will not require sophisticated freezing technology in order to develop and operate the mine, or during the reclamation process. With the Arrow Deposit's maiden Inferred mineral resource estimate of 201.9 M lbs. U3O8 contained in 3.48 M tonnes grading 2.63% U3O8, it is showing a likely production profile which could make it the largest producing mine on a per-pound basis globally.

Chris Castle, President of Chatham Rock Phosphate Ltd (CRP: NZX): Mineral Resource Development Company Holds a Mining Permit off the Coast of New Zealand with Significant Seabed Deposits of Rock Phosphate and other Potentially Valuable Minerals
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


Chatham Rock Phosphate, Ltd (CRP: NZX) is a mineral resource development company that holds a mining permit over an area off the coast of New Zealand with significant seabed deposits of rock phosphate and other potentially valuable minerals. Very significantly, the Namibian government has just opened up phosphate mining off-shore in Namibia, where Chatham has five more prospecting license applications. We learned from Chris Castle, President of Chatham Rock Phosphate, that the offshore phosphate deposits are sitting on the surface of the sea floor and you can dredge the surface material off and then bring it to the shore. The material itself will be used for fertilizer. In New Zealand, where the economy is based on agriculture, the existence of a local source of phosphate is particularly important. The near-term plans, for the New Zealand deposit, include being fully permitted by the end of 2017 and going into production in 2020, mining 1.5 billion tons a year of rock phosphate and selling it for roughly $250 million dollars a year, making roughly $100 million dollars’ profit in round numbers. The Namibian project is at an earlier stage and will provide a broader base for the company in the 2020s.

Interview with Stuart Rogers, President of TerraX Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: TXR; Frankfurt: TX0; OTC Pink: TRXXF): Controls One of the Six Major High-Grade Gold Districts in Canada, Adjacent to Yellowknife
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


TerraX Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: TXR; Frankfurt: TX0; OTC Pink: TRXXF) is a Canadian junior mining company that controls one of the six major high-grade gold districts in Canada, immediately north and south of mining friendly Yellowknife, the capital of the Northwest Territories. Their flagship Yellowknife City Gold Project, which encompasses 129 sq. km of contiguous land, is all-season road accessible and very close to vital infrastructure, including transportation, service providers, hydro-electric power and skilled tradespeople. We learned from Stuart Rogers, President of TerraX Mineral, this is the least explored of the major gold camps because, up until recently, you couldn't drive there all-year-round. Now with highway access and daily scheduled jet service to the rest of Canada, the access is quite easy. This also allows them to work all-year- round, so they have just completed their summer exploration campaign and will be back drilling in January. The company strategy has been to identify the areas, on their vast property, where they can build a maximum high-grade resource in the least amount of time and/or cost. According to Mr. Rogers, results to date indicate that the project has multimillion ounce potential.

VANCOUVER, Jan. 17, 2017 /CNW/ - Red Eagle Mining Corporation (TSX: R, BVL: ROTCQX: RDEMF) is pleased to announce results from the 2016 ore production stope delineation drilling programme at the San Ramon Gold Mine, Santa Rosa Gold Project, Antioquia, Colombia. The 10,000m programme was drilled from eight pads spaced over 300m of strike length. 107 diamond drill holes (SRD-0001 to SRD-0107) were drilled on approximately 15m centres from near surface to a vertical depth of 160m from surface. The programme only in-fill drilled a portion of the reserves at the San Ramon Gold Mine which overall extend for 2km of strike length and to 250m depth. The deposit is also open both at depth and on strike to the east where exploration drilling is currently underway. Results from the initial 95 holes (SRD-0001 to SRD-0095) were previously announced.

Mexus adds additional property to its portfolio
CARSON CITY, Nev., Jan. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexus Gold US (OTCQB:MXSG) (“Mexus” or the “Company”) announced that after careful deliberation the Company has determined to acquire the concessions comprising the San Felix Project.  Mexus has entered into land surface use agreements and concession purchase agreements for various land parcels which expired under the prior owner’s failure to pay. The agreements require a cash payment with term payments to the respective owners.  The Company also announces the execution of an agreement with MarMar Holdings Inc. whereby each company owns a 50% share of the San Felix Project and designates MarMar Holdings Inc. as the operator of the daily production activities. Other provisions of the agreement are similar to our agreement with MarMar Holdings Inc. covering the Santa Elena Project.  Included in this agreement is the addition of 6 concessions by MarMar Holdings Inc. which brings the total area of the San Felix Project to approximately 26,570 acres. Situated on the property is an approximate 3 million ton leach pad in place and a 1600 GPM Merrill Crow gold recovery system.  Having the leach pad and recovery system in place will greatly reduce the time and cost to bring this mine into production.  Mr. Marco Martinez, CEO of MarMar Holdings Inc., owns heavy mining equipment which is stored 45km north of the San Felix project.  This machinery can be mobilized in a short period of time which reduces the significant expense associated with equipment hauling. Initially, MarMar Holdings Inc. has a goal to produce 10,000 tons a day with output increasing over time. The Company possesses geological reports, mapping, drill results and sampling data which indicate a potential 1,000,000oz gold equivalent.
