Guyana Goldstrike Reports Visible Gold at Marudi

Assays from Trench TTR-18-09: 12.50 Metres of 1.61 g/t Au including 1.80 Metres of 3.63 g/t Au at Toucan Ridge Area, Marudi Gold Project, Guyana

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Guyana Goldstrike Inc.(TSXV: GYA,FSE:1ZT) is pleased to report first batch assay results from Trench TTR-18-09 at the Toucan Ridge area on its Marudi Gold Project ("Marudi" or the "Property") located in the Guiana Gold Belt, Guyana, South America.

Trench TTR-18-09

Trench TTR-18-09 first batch assay results have returned values of 12.50 metres of 1.61 g/t au including 1.80 metres of 3.63 g/t au. The trench is located approximately 300 metres eastward of trench TTR-18-06 along Toucan Ridge. ¬298.30 metres has been excavated, sampled and mapped, with five (5) sections identified as bearing quartzite-metachert host rock with magnetite. Additional samples are pending from trench TTR-18-09 and will be released once received and reviewed by the Company.

Mr. Locke Goldsmith M Sc. P Eng. P Geo., VP Exploration states,

“Trenching at Toucan Ridge continues to uncover and identify the quartzite-metachert host rock for gold mineralization. Today’s results in trench TTR-18-09 also confirm that gold has now been discovered in four separate trenches, which span over 300 metres along the ridge in a parallel manner, extending eastwardly. Visible gold was again present in our sampling and this provides us with an excellent indicator at surface that we are in the correct strata. Toucan Ridge continues to establish itself as a top priority target zone for our upcoming drill program.”

Current Zones and Mineral Resource Estimate

The Toucan Ridge area is located approximately one kilometre east of the Marudi North zone and one kilometre north of the Mazoa Hill zone. The Mazoa Hill zone contains the Marudi Gold Project’s current mineral resource estimate. Data analyzed suggests that the mineralized zone is open at depth and to the southeast. Mineral Resource Estimate:

259,100 indicated gold ounces within 4,428,000 tonnes grading 1.8 g/t; and,
86,200 inferred gold ounces within 1,653,000 tonnes grading 1.6 g/t

Toucan Ridge – 1.75 Kilometre Area of Interest

A total of 1128 metres of trenching has been completed in the Toucan Ridge area. 390 samples have been taken. The exploration team will continue along the ridge progressing in an eastward direction with each new trench site stepping out roughly in 100 metre intervals, mainly perpendicular to the ridge. The area of interest continues for more than 1.75 kilometres to the east of trench – TTR-18-06. Trench sites are planned where quartzite-metachert is exposed or interpreted to occur beneath the transported overburden. The eastern part of Toucan Ridge is approximately 400 metres south of the Paunch area which was trenched in May and returned the Company’s first significant gold discovery.

Historical Trenching

Previous operators at Marudi reported 3,327.40 metres of trenching and assayed 1,069 samples with gold values assayed up to 11 g/t of gold. (Source: D. Strickland P. Geo NI 43-101 Technical Report, November 30, 2016)

About the Marudi Gold Project

The Company is developing the Marudi Gold Project located in Guyana, South America. The project has 18-year mining license in good standing, all-season road access, infrastructure in place, with an established camp serviced by employees, service buildings, and a full-time camp manager. The Property has three known gold bearing areas: the alluvial areas, the saprolite, and the underlying hard-rock.

There has been 42,000 metres of historic diamond drilling (141 holes) completed on the project by prior operators that have delineated two zones of mineralization: Mazoa Hill and Marudi North zones. The Company has recently completed a mineral resource estimate on the Mazoa Hill zone containing 259,100 indicated gold ounces within 4,428,000 tonnes grading 1.8 g/t and 86,200 inferred gold ounces within 1,653,000 tonnes grading 1.6 g/t. There exists excellent exploration upside through the development of previously and newly identified mineralized bedrock targets on the project.

Reduce Noise, Save Energy and Improve Safety with Engineered Compressed Air Nozzles

Most Efficient Air Nozzles Available

Air Mag Nozzles

Engineered Compressed Air Nozzles reduce noise and save energy by converting energy normally lost as pressure drop and noise into useful flow.

RICHMND HILL, ONTARIO, CANADA, October 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nex Flow™ Air Products Corp. at https://www.nexflow.com have developed "the" most efficient compressed air operated air nozzles in a new patented design that provides the highest force/unit air consumption. Sizes available are small 4 mm, 5 mm and 6 mm versions and larger sizes in 1/4" and 1/2". The smaller nozzles are available in 316L stainless steel and Peek. The 14: and 1/2" versions are available in both cast zinc and 316L stainless steel materials.

The Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ Air Nozzle (see https://www.nexflow.com/air-mag-air-nozzle/) unique, patented design focuses the air into a sharper laminar flow with the highest force per SCFM. This both reduces compressed air energy use and noise levels when compared to open pipe or jets. Even replacing competitive air nozzles will reduce compressed air energy costs along with providing low exhaust noise levels.

This new design even outperforms nozzles using a so-called laval effect, but without the annoying whistle that may come with such designs.

The Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ nozzle is designed so that the force at a particular pressure will be about the same as a competitive nozzle similar design. This makes it easy to compare and prove the superiority of the Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ nozzle by simply replacing the other nozzle and compare results. Just have a pressure regulator and gauge upstream of the nozzle, and, if possible a flow meter also. Have a weight scale to blow against or use it in your application. For each nozzle, adjust the pressure upstream to that it is the same for all nozzles tested.

If you replace any competitive nozzle, you may have to cut back the pressure as you will get more force from the Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ nozzle. This is because the air consumption is “less” at any given pressure which also means less pressure drop in the line as the air flows out. So you end up with a bit more pressure and force. You can then cut back the pressure if not needed, thereby reducing compressed air use even more.

If you have a flow meter, all nozzles can be tested comparatively on actual air consumption.

Alternatively,just try the various nozzles and you will normally find the Nex Flow™ Air Mag™ nozzle to perform better due to its more efficient design.

Waterjet cutting process is used to cut materials by the use of a jet of pressurized water as high 60,000 pounds per square inch (psi). Waterjet technology finds a wide application in various end-user industries, including aerospace, construction, automotive, marine and mining. It uses a thin stream of ultra-high-pressure water to deliver precision cutting and specialty cleaning services. Waterjet cutting systems continues to be the preferred machine tool for manufacturing processes due to their superior attributes, such as the ability to machine the thicker materials, superior edge finish, tight tolerances, eco-friendly nature, and safety and versatility of the technology. The waterjet has capability to cut materials such as metals, non-metals, stone, plastics, wood, and ceramics which is one of the most major attribute of waterjet cutting technology.

The alternative technology which are competition to the waterjet technology are laser cutting, plasma cutting and flam cutting waterjet. The major advantage of the techniques over other technology is versatility and simplicity. The waterjet cutting technology has sheer variety of materials and thicknesses which can be penetrated to cut on a waterjet. The operation can be performed in 2 ways either the laser is made static and the material moving underneath it or the laser can move across the material which remains fixed in place. The major advantage of the waterjet over laser is that the waterjet can cut a material with higher thickness. Additional to this, the material that had been cut has no heat-affected zones (HAZ).

Plasma cutting is another alternative over this method and waterjet have better surface finish. The waterjet cutting provide better edge quality, tolerance capability, and the secondary operations as compared to plasma cutting. The waterjet can cut high melting point material such as granite and laminated which is not possible by plasma cutting. Another alternative technology is flame cutting, which is only used for iron and steel. On the contrary to this, waterjet technique can be used to cut other metal more beside of iron and steel such as aluminum. HAZ are not created by the waterjet technology which is a major restrain in flame cutting. The precision of the waterjet cutting is also more as compared to flame cutting and the former leaves an almost sandblasted finish whereas flame cutting produces rough edges. Due to the following reasons, it is expected that an industry or a workshop will prefer waterjet cutting machine over other technologies or will keep it along with other alternatives which is expected to augment the market of waterjet cutting machines.

MVC’s Phase Two expansion project was essentially complete in Q3-2018 and production ramp up is ongoing

At September 30, 2018, the Phase Two expansion project was 97% complete. The new rougher flotation cells started to produce concentrates on August 20 and the new cleaner flotation circuit came on-line on October 12.

The 60-day production test required under the Cauquenes expansion finance loan is scheduled to commence on October 17, 2018. The project’s $1.5 million concentrate regrind mill has been removed from the Phase Two completion timeline and is expected to be installed in Q1-2019. The completion of the project in Q4-2018 will substantially strengthen Amerigo’s cash generation capacity.

The Phase Two capital expenditure (“Capex”) is estimated at $37.4 million, compared to budget of $35.3 million, primarily due to a 9.3% appreciation of the Chilean peso during the construction period compared to budget.

2018 copper production and cash guidance are maintained

The Company continues to expect 2018 production of 65 to 70 million pounds of copper at a cash cost of $1.45 to $1.60/lb and has increased molybdenum production guidance to 1.8 million pounds.

In 2018, MVC expects to incur $26 million in Phase Two Capex, $5.5 million in sustaining Capex, an additional $1.5 million in Capex projects to improve safety and process efficiencies and a $8.4 million expansion of its molybdenum plant, financed by way of a seven-year lease and operating contract.

The Phase Two project has improved flotation recovery efficiency, allowing MVC to increase production to an estimated 85 to 90 million pounds of copper per year.

Nitrogen Generators

NITROGEN GENERATING SYSTEMS GET THE GREEN LIGHT

WANGARA,, WESTERN AUSTRALIA, October 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Whether rolling out food, mining for gold or supplying pharmaceutical applications, companies can save themselves money and avoid the hassle of having to outsource nitrogen supplies in conventional cylinders by switching to gas on tap through a nitrogen generator.

Being at the mercy of the supply chain for nitrogen cannisters, coupled with the worry of externally sourced cylinders running out at a critical time, is a headache that can be cured by the installation of automatic on-site generators, according to Oxair, an Australian specialist in the supply of gas generation equipment to international markets.

Nitrogen is used in multiple applications every day, with organisations often relying on the gas being shipped to them in cylinders, which can prove expensive and logistically challenging for remote locations due to conditions on route and storage space, not to mention the health and safety risks for staff manually moving the cylinders from one place to another.

A nitrogen generator offers a continuous flow of the gas for industrial sectors where its vital such as food packaging and processing to keep items fresher for longer, mines and chemical plants for displacing oxygen to prevent explosions in highly dangerous atmospheres and pharmaceutical production where almost every major drug class contains some nitrogen, even antibiotics and anaesthetics.

Nitrogen generators are also an environmentally friendlier way of delivery by reducing the carbon footprint associated with having cylinders transported from an off-site facility and then the return journey when they are empty.

Ensuring a reliable supply of nitrogen was why one of the world's largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource development in Australia's history, the Chevron-operated Gorgon Project, opted for a nitrogen generator developed by Oxair.

Commissioned by Plant Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre to produce a nitrogen system for Chevron Australia that would contribute to protecting the conservation values of Barrow Island, an A-Class Nature Reserve off the northwest coast of Western Australia, Oxair delivered a solution for the project’s fumigation of material destined for the island.

Oxair’s nitrogen generators use Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) or membrane technology, cost-effective filtration methods for onsite nitrogen production for a wide range of high purity and flow requirements, to be used directly by the end user on demand.

CEO of Oxair, James Newell, said: “Instead of the removal and reliance of shipping and handling conventional cylinders, except as a back-up supply, companies have the opportunity for nitrogen on tap, enabling them to be self-sufficient by generating the gas for years to come.”

Oxair’s designs are focused on meeting exacting customer requirements, reliability, ease of maintenance, safety, and plant self-protection. It is a world leading manufacturer of gas process systems, for shipboard and land-based use to suit any requirement.
