Gold Terra CEO David Suda (sponsor) joined us for an update. When we last spoke, the company had acquired a number of Newmont claims, which hadn’t been explored since the 1960’s. This in an area that had produced over 14 million ounces. Of that 5 million came out of the Campbell Shear alone. It took 9 months to close the deal, but it was well worth their time.
Drilling began in January of 2021. To date, they’ve received assays on 6 of 13 holes drilled. The two most significant intersected 5.77 g/t Au over 12.35 meters, including 14.09 g/t Au over 4.65 meters, and 5.69 g/t Au over 1.50 meters and .871 g/t over 3 meters. David is extremely excited by these developments and is anxiously awaiting the remaining results. It appears that the mineralization is consistent with that found in the prolific Con Mine, which could well presage a major discovery. A fully-funded 10,000 meter drill program is set to start in July.
This month was also significant for Gold Terra as they upped their 43-101 resource estimate for the Sam Otto and Crestaurum deposits to 1.2 million ounces inferred, an over 60 percent increase from the 2019 resource estimate. And of course, the potential is there for substantial further additions.
Executive Chairman Gerald Panneton and David have delivered upon their promises. Now, it’s just a matter of time before the market recognizes the inherent value present and resets the company’s valuation higher, which is why we’re even more optimistic shareholders than before.
