Crystal Lake Intersects 15.11 g/t Gold over 8 Metres at Newmont Lake Project, BC
VANCOUVER, Sept. 18, 2019 /CNW/ - Crystal Lake Mining Corporation (TSXV: CLM OTC: SIOCF FSE: SOG-FF) ("Crystal Lake" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the intersection of shallow high-grade gold mineralization at Crystal Lake's Newmont Lake Gold Corridor. The new results are crucial as they provide evidence of a thick unit of unusually high-grade gold mineralization within a broad envelop of continuous low-grade gold mineralization. This discovery is important as it demonstrates that the mineral zone actually increases in both width and in grade in areas where previous models indicate a narrowing of the mineral zone. Additionally, a second deeper horizon has been intersected in an area without gold mineralization in previous models adding to the exploration potential of the Newmont Lake gold corridor along the western flank of the Eskay Rift in NW BC.

New Century Resources (ASX: NCZ): Operating the Century Zinc Mine in Queensland, Australia, Becoming One of the World’s Top 10 Zinc Producers; Interview with Patrick Walta, Managing Director
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA


New Century Resources (ASX: NCZ) is operating the Century Zinc Mine in Queensland, Australia, with the aim of becoming one of the world’s top 10 zinc producers. After the rehabilitation process that upgraded the mine’s existing world-class infrastructure, it successfully entered production in August 2018, with the goal of producing zinc in the lowest cost quartile globally, initially with the existing vast tailings resource on the mine site. We learned from Patrick Walta, Managing Director of New Century Resources, that during their third full quarter of operations they produced nearly 21,000 tons of zinc metal, placing them in the top 25 of all operating zinc mines in the world. The Company currently has half of the plant online, with the goal of bringing on the rest of the plant over the next 12 months, doubling its capacity and, ultimately, re-establishing Century as a top 10 zinc producer. According to Mr. Walta, the key differentiator for the Century Zinc Mine is its competitive operation cost of 56 cents a pound, because reclaiming the existing stockpile largely eliminates most mining costs. The Company plans to develop and bring into production the significant amount of undeveloped resources on the mine lease, to increase the life of mine, which is currently 7 years.

Interview with Rick Rule about the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium
by Allen M. Alper Jr, President of Metals News


I had the pleasure of talking with Rick Rule about the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium that will take place in Vancouver on July 30 - August 2nd, 2019. There will be top-notch speakers, and the living legend panel, made up of people who have built multi-billion-dollar natural resource based businesses from scratch. Each of almost 80 public company exhibitors at the conference is an issuer that is owned in Sprott managed accounts, which guarantees that Sprott has vetted every single exhibitor. According to Rick Rule, the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium is the world's most important annual event for high-net-worth retail investors in the natural resource business. It has stood the test of time for nearly 30 years, and, this year, it could be especially useful to investors because current share prices are at real lows coming out of a long bear market.

Copper Fox Metals Inc. (TSXV: CUU) (OTC Pink: CPFXF) is focused on the exploration and development of copper properties in Canada and the United States. At PDAC 2019, we learned from Elmer Stewart, President and CEO of Copper Fox, that they have four copper projects and a significant investment in a publically traded company that spans the copper space from early stage exploration to very advanced development stage projects. Their flagship project is the 25% interest in the Schaft Creek Joint Venture on the Schaft Creek copper-gold-molybdenum-silver deposit, with Teck Resources Limited, located in northwestern British Columbia, where the joint venture is working toward enhancing the value of the project. Copper Fox’s goal is to sell its 25% interest in the Schaft creek project. According to Mr. Stewart, the insiders own 57% of the Company, and their major shareholder is a strong supporter. Mr. Stewart, a strong believer in the future of the copper industry, commented that it looks like the industry is on the emerging edge of a significant supply deficit due to a number of operational issues, compounded by experts forecasting that by 2035, approximately 200 currently operating copper mines will be closed.
