Auteco Minerals hits 12-year high on declaring maiden 830,000-ounce Pickle Crow resource at 11.6 g/t

Auteco Minerals Ltd (ASX:AUT) more than doubled after declaring a maiden JORC 2012-compliant inferred resource gold of 830,000 ounces at 11.6 g/t for the Pickle Crow Gold Project in Ontario, Canada.

The company is confident of building on this through its maiden drilling program, which started last month, with results to form part of a resource update later this year.

Mineralisation at the project in a world-class gold mining province is open in every direction and there are numerous walk-up targets to test.

Shares surged to a new 12-year high on volume of more than 74 million and have been up as much as 112% to 17 cents before closing at 16 cents.

Strong start at Pickle Crow


Auteco executive chairman Ray Shorrocks said the company had made a strong start in its strategy to establish Pickle Crow as a world-scale project in a Tier-1 location.

“This maiden JORC resource, which has been independently calculated, confirms Pickle Crow is a significant, high-grade deposit with immense growth potential,” he said.

The resource at a lower cut-off of 3.5 g/t runs from the surface immediately adjacent to existing underground and surface infrastructure.

This estimate stems from a review of the existing data at Pickle Crow, including previous non-JORC compliant resources and has been completed by Perth-based Cube Consulting.

Model validated


Shorrocks said: “The resource validates the geological model of our technical team, which in turn supports their view about the scope for further resource growth.

“We are now undertaking the first systematic exploration program at Pickle Crow for 50 years.

“Our confidence in the project has been strengthened by the visual results from the first few drill holes and as a result, we have added a second drill rig and increased the program from 5,000 metres to at least 10,000 metres.”

Maiden drilling progresses


Auteco started its maiden drilling program at Pickle Crow late last month and since then nine holes have been drilled with assays pending analysis.

Visual inspection of the initial drill intersections validates the geological interpretation with significant mineralisation, veining and visual gold intercepted.

With numerous high-grade targets identified since the acquisition, Auteco aims to continue drilling in 2020.

“This is just the beginning of work at Pickle Crow,” Shorrocks said.

“Our active exploration has three goals, firstly near-term resources growth focused on adding geological confidence to already identified areas of mineralisation that can be brought into the resource inventory.

“Secondly, extensions to the current known resources which remain open in both along strike and down dip.

“Finally, new discovery through step-out exploratioRead More – Source

S&P/ASX 200 drops 2.4% this week over worries of rising COVID-19 cases worldwide

S&P/ASX 200 (INDEXASX:XJO) closed 0.6% down today following news of another 288 COVID-19 cases in Victoria, a new daily record, and US futures also sliding into negative territory.

The biggest losses have been among the likes of energy and materials following a 2-3% fall in oil prices in overnight trade.

This weighed on local oil and gas producers with Oil Search (ASX:OSH) down the most with a loss of 4.1% while Woodside (ASX:WPL) and Origin Energy (ASX:ORG) dropped more than 2.2%.

COVID-19 update[hhmc]
306 new COVID-19 cases were recorded across Australia today, with Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and the Australian Capital Territory all seeing a rise in new infections.

In the US, more than 60,500 new COVID-19 infections were reported on Thursday, according to Reuters, setting a new one-day record.

As infections rose in 41 of the 50 states over the last two weeks, the US has become increasingly divided on issues such as the reopening of schools and businesses.

Assay Results from RKDD015 and RKDD018 at Mawson

Key Points

  • LEG has announced assay results received from diamond drillholes RKDD015 and RKDD018 at Mawson;
  • We highlight the consistency of these results with those that gave rise to the original discovery hole (#7) and that otherwise occur proximal to the ongoing following massive sulphide intersections as follows;
  • RKDD018:
    • 19.2m @ 1.69% Ni, 1.23% Cu, 0.09% from 97.9m (incl. 4.5m @ 3.05% Ni, 2.32% Cu, 0.19% Co from 103.7m;
    • 34.65m @ 0.51% Ni, 0.35% Cu, 0.03% Co from 130.7m;
  • The grades contained in the above 4.5m intercept in hole 18 are the best seen to date at Mawson;
  • RKDD018 was designed to test the eastern extension of sulphide mineralisation in both the upper disseminated and lower massive sulphide intervals intersected in RKDD008;
  • Of particular note was the “leopard textures” encountered. Per the Voiseys Bay analogue, leopard textures are considered to indicate close proximity to an ultramafic intrusive source;
  • RKDD015:
    • 73.5m @ 0.32% Ni, 0.29% Cu, 0.02% Co from 87.5m;
    • 24.3m @ 0.22%, Ni 0.26% Cu, 0.02% Co from 279m;
  • RKDD015 was designed to test the northern extension of massive sulphide mineralisation in RKDD011 and the eastern extension of the upper sulphide zone in RKDD007;
  • LEG is progressing its 3,000m RC drilling programme over the next month;
  • We anticipate an extension of the program with further positive results and incorporation of diamond tails where warranted, with diamond drilling to follow in a success case;
  • The aircore anomalism continues to build in the eastern shadow of the main gravity feature;
  • We note substantial infill on the previous update, that is exhibiting a coherent cluster of geochem anomalism immediately adjacent to the main gravity features;
  • Furthermore, 2D modelling of these gravity features suggest densities consistent with mafic and ultramafic packages that to date appear to be possible sRead More – Source

Calima Energy to outline production plan for Montney Formation at Proactive Oil & Gas webinar

Calima Energy Ltd (ASX:CE1) will present its plan to bring three wells at the highly ranked Montney Formation in British Columbia, Canada, into production during Proactives Oil & Gas webinar this Tuesday, June 14.

Regarded as one of the top-ranked resource plays in North America and the companys main asset, the Montney Formation is where Calima holds a 100% interest in more than 60,000 acres of drilling and production rights.

Calima's CFO Mark Freeman will make the presentation at the Proactive online forum.

After drilling was conducted on the three wells in 2019, Calima has been focused on a Field Development Plan (FDP) to bring the acreage into production.

The FDP provides the basis for a qualified reserves statement and is the foundation upon which Calimas landholdings in British Columbia can be promoted to prospective partners and financiers.

The FDP provides the basis for a qualified reserves statement and is the foundation upon which Calimas landholdings in British Columbia can be promoted to prospective partners and financiers.

Tommy Lakes acquisition


Calima acquired the Tommy Lakes infrastructure in April, which president Michael Dobovich said was a milestone for the company as it could potentially bring the Calima Lands into production within six to nine months.

He said: “The suspension operations have been done to a very high level and in a manner which allows them to be re-started efficiently when the Calima Lands are brought into production.”

Highlights of the facility include:

  • Cost-efficient access to North River Midstream pipeline and the Jedney processing facility;
  • Access to regional markets through the major pipeline networks including, NGTL, Alliane and T-North;
  • Gathering pipelines, compression facilities and associated faclilites capable of transporting up to 50 Mmcf/d of gas and 2,500 bbls/d of condensate;
  • Field office with a control centre and flexible camp facilities suitable for drilling operations;
  • Year-round condensate storage and off-loading facilities; and
  • Only 20 kilometres from Calima Lands with approval to build connecting pipeline already secured.

Calima believes it is well-positioned going forward with a substantial primary gas resource, a gas and liquids facility connected to sales markets, reduced overheads and a working capital position that will support the business through to early 2022.
