Also expected to generate keen bidder interest is a proof one-ounce gold 1994 Chinese Unicorn Yuan coin, one of fewer than 1,000 minted, in the original velvet-lined box, with an engraved unicorn on the cover and a certificate of authenticity (est. $5,000-$6,150). A star lot of the tokens category promises to be a hoard of nearly 60 copper-appearing metal tokens, all from the Nevada Club in Reno and the Nevada Lodge in Lake Tahoe, from the Gillio Hoard (est. $1,000-$1,500).

An original oil painting on canvas advertising Moon Castle Whiskey (saying “Now served here at Tombstone’s own Birdcage Theater”), beautifully housed in a 22 ½ inch by 27 inch frame, a fantasy piece meant to attract patrons to Western saloons, should reach $1,500-$2,500.

Two very different lots that day carry identical estimates of $5,000-$10,000. One is the actual Winchester model 1892 44-40 rifle that belonged to Capt. Guillermo “Flores” Reyes, a member of Poncho Villa’s legendary Revolutionary Army, with solid provenance. The other is a lovely Daum Nancy Art Nouveau classic cased vase, 11 inches tall, with a carved black Oriental poppy exterior design and a nice violet and magenta base. The circa 1900 vase is marked Daum Nancy.

Who’s more famous, Marilyn Monroe or Harry Houdini? Answer: both. A stock certificate for the Houdini Picture Corporation, Inc., issued for five shares to Carrie S. Rich in 1921 and signed by Houdini himself as president of the company, should fetch $2,000-$3,000; while an original page from Marilyn Monroe’s personal script for the 1956 movie Bus Stop, a limited edition, #47 of 124, accompanied by a black and white photo of Monroe, framed, should hit $1,000-$2,000.

An impressive gold and diamond necklace boasting 24 small gold nuggets (1.11 ozt) and one large gold nugget (1.91 ozt), set with a .5 carat round cut diamond on a 22-inch gold chain with a double clasp, has a pre-sale estimate of $6,500-$8,500. Also, a mid-19th century gold in quartz aesthetic native gold specimen from northern Sierra Nevada in Nevada County, California, featuring a leaf gold in quartz matrix with associated pyrite crystals, should bring $3,600-$5,400.

Two original paintings by the famed California artist Andrew Putnam Hill (1853-1922) will come up for bid. One is a pastel colors on board work titled Cupid and Woman, an allegorical use of Cupid showing a protectionary kiss, housed in a 16 ½ inch by 26 inch gold leaf frame (est. $7,500-$12,500). The other is a gouache depiction of a reclining nude, also housed in a gold leaf frame measuring 17 inches by 29 inches (est. $5,000-$7,500). Both paintings appear unsigned.

A colorful painting showing a wide array of characters in a saloon setting by Utah artist Arnold Friberg (1913-2010) has an estimate of $1,000-$2,000. In 1977, Friberg was commissioned by the Gold Nugget Casino in Las Vegas to make a series of saloon-related paintings. This one is signed and numbered (795/1500). Also, a weekly register overland mail document for the Pony Express, dated 1861 (from St. Joseph, Mo., to Placerville, Calif.) should reach $1,500-$3,000.

They include the Medallic Arts/Northwest Territorial Mint Reference Ingot Collection, the James Mackie Art & Western Americana Collection, the R.B.

Key Anacon Main zone

osisko metals (TSX-V:OM)

MONTRéAL, QUéBEC, CANADA, August 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Montreal – August 8, 2018) Osisko Metals Incorporated (the “Company” or “Osisko Metals”) (TSX-V: OM; FRANKFURT: OB5) is pleased to announce results from on-going drilling at both the Main Zone and the Titan Zone on its wholly owned Key Anacon project, located 20 km south of Bathurst, New Brunswick. Drill hole KAMZ-18-03A intersected 46.5 metres grading 8.94% Zn, 3.14% Pb, 0.1% Cu, 98.4 g/t Ag, and 0.481 g/t Au, including 20.0m of 14.71% Zn, 5.71% Pb, 0.08% Cu, 183.00 g/t Ag and 0.46 g/t Au (see Table 1).
Drill hole KAMZ-18-03A targeted the core of the historical Main Zone deposit. This hole crosscut several massive sulphide zones (see Tables 1 and 3 as well as Main Zone Longitudinal Section) prior to intersecting 46.50 metres of high grade massive sulphides. These results confirm the thickness (true thickness estimated at 26 metres) and grades from nearby historical (1950-1960’s) underground drilling. Drill hole KAMZ-18-03A is an important early confirmation of historical drill results (see Table 2) in preparation for a maiden NI43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate, slated to be released in late 2019.
Jeff Hussey, President and CEO of Osisko Metals, commented: “We are very encouraged by the confirmation of the thickness and high grades of the core of the Main Zone Deposit. The Key Anacon project hosts two of the best targets across the entire Bathurst Mining Camp. Ongoing drilling at the Main Zone deposit is now targeting open or very sparsely drilled areas along strike and at depth. We are also seeing continued success at the nearby Titan Zone where drilling intersected significant thicknesses of Zn-Pb rich massive sulphides and new copper, silver and gold-rich zones”.

At the Titan Zone, located 1.5 kilometres to the northeast of the Key Anacon Main Zone, drill hole KA-18-02 encountered a significant copper rich zone that returned 20.9 metres grading 1.84% Cu, 1.92% Zn, 0.65% Pb, 23.73 g/t Ag and 0.46 g/t Au. Located 21 metres above this interval in the hole was a 2.1 metre intersection grading 10.52% Zn, 4.02% Pb, 0.45% Cu, 422.38 g/t Ag, and 0.09 g/t Au (see Tables 1 and 3).
Drill hole KAEZ-18-03 intersected 32.0 metres of massive sulphides including a 6.0 metre zone of 6.14% Zn, 2.68% Pb, 0.55% Cu, 43.53 g/t Ag, and 0.41 g/t Au located approximately 185 metres down-plunge from Rio Algom’s historical 1993 drill hole (KA93-42) that intersected 19.90 metres grading 7.86% Zn, 3.58 % Pb, 0.33% Cu and 78.0 g/t Ag within 82.27 metres of mineralization. This Rio Algom hole also encountered two copper-rich zones within the broader massive sulphide zone. They contained 1.83% Cu over 10.3 metres as well as 2.30% Cu over 8.5 metres. Hole KAEZ-18-03 is also situated 235 m down-plunge from KA-18-01 containing 6.07% Zn, 2.19% Pb, 0.92% Cu, 48.8 g/t Ag and 0.04 g/t Au over 22.2 metres (See Osisko Metals news release of June 27, 2018).
The Cu rich zones in KA-18-02 and KAEZ-18-03 are located down plunge from hole KA-18-01 (see Titan Zone Longitudinal Section) that intersected 7.45 metres of 2.17% Cu, 47.95 g/t Ag and 2.97 g/t Au (See Osisko Metals news release of June 27, 2018).

The deepest historical drillhole in the Titan Zone is located at over a kilometer depth. KA01-15B, encountered a 75-metre-thick interval of massive sulphides containing 5.1% Zn + Pb over 9.3 metres, 9.25 % Zn+Pb over 13.0 metres and 5.55% Zn+Pb over 24.3 metres.

About Key Anacon

The Key Anacon project is located approximately 20 km south of the town of Bathurst, New Brunswick and 16 km southeast of the former Brunswick No.12 mine. It is accessible by paved roads. The property contains two known Bathurst-type volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits containing zinc, lead, copper and silver. The Key Anacon Main Zone and Titan Zone deposits are situated at the same stratigraphic horizon that hosted the Brunswick No. 12 & No. 6 mines. The property covers approximately 12 kilometres of favorable Nepisiguit Falls stratigraphy that also extends onto the surrounding claims held 100% by Osisko Metals.
No mineral resource estimates have been calculated under NI43-101 guidelines. Except for exploration programs conducted in 1992-1993 and 2000, almost all of the drilling was completed in the 1950’s and 60’s, prior to currently required standards for quality assurance and quality control. The earlier drilling led to the establishment of a 460 metre shaft, a vent raise, eight levels and three sub-levels at the Main Zone. The Government of New Brunswick, Department of Energy and Resource Development, Energy and Mines Division reports the Main Zone deposit as having a historical resource (Non-NI 43-101 compliant) of 1.87 million tonnes grading 6.93% Zn, 2.63% Pb, 0.16% Cu, and 84 g/t Ag in multiple folded lenses. The deposit is open at depth and along strike.
Exploration potential at Key Anacon and the Company’s adjacent properties is considered to be excellent on the basis of the presence of the Brunswick Horizon stratigraphy and the expansive zones of mineralization and alteration. Both the Titan Zone and Main Zone are open at depth and along strike. Exploration and development programs in the 1950’s and 1960’s were terminated due to the pullback of the zinc commodity price at that time. Since then, only two minor exploration programs were conducted by major mining companies.

Big Barrels : l’histoire des hydrocarbures africains qui captive le monde

L’édition française de « Big Barrel s» arrive en librairie, donnant un plus grand accès à ce livre révolutionnaire sur l’industrie africaine des hydrocarbures

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, August 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Un an après sa première publication, l’engouement mondial créé par le best-seller sur l’industrie africaine des hydrocarbures, « Big Barrels », a mené à sa réimpression en français, sous le titre « Big Barrels : pétrole et gaz africains et la quête de la prospérité. »

« Le discours établi par le livre est ce qui en a fait son succès, » explique l’auteur NJ Ayuk, un important avocat sur la scène énergétique africaine. « Big Barrels raconte une histoire cachée de l’industrie du pétrole et du gaz en Afrique, une histoire de réussites positives et qui démontre les capabilités que cette industrie a à transformer le future des économies africaines et de leurs citoyens. »

La version anglaise du livre a été lancée en juin 2017 à la conférence internationale d’Africa Oil & Power au Cap, et est depuis devenue un succès sans précédent en Afrique et au-delà, remettant en question la perception selon laquelle rien de bon ne peut sortir du développement des hydrocarbures africains, et développant des arguments contraires à la traditionnelle « malédiction des ressources naturelles. »

Le livre donne accès à des études de cas spécifiques sur des marchés tels que le Nigeria, le Ghana, l’Angola, la Tanzanie et la Guinée équatoriale pour promouvoir ce que ces nations africaines ont fait de mieux en exploitant leurs ressources pétrolières et gazières. Il fait notamment lumière sur des aspects spécifiques de ces réussites, telle que la bonne gouvernance au Ghana, la gérance environnementale au Gabon, et la création d’emploi et d’entreprise au Nigeria. Ce faisant, Big Barrels permet aux africains de se réapproprier le discours qui façonne leur industrie des hydrocarbures, et de l’ouvrir à des voix africaines et non fatalistes.

Depuis sa première édition, Big Barrels a reçu une couverture médiatique internationale considérable, étant présenté et débattu à plusieurs reprises sur la BBC Afrique, CNBC, Forbes Afrique, Bild Zeitung, Financial Afrik, SABC, DW et Voice of America. Comme l’a dit Funke Michaels, un enseignant-chercheur du programme Mason de l’université d’Harvard, « je vois des lecteurs revigorés par la lecture de ces études de cas, et de fait libérés du mythe que l’Afrique ne peut se guérir de sa bonne vieille ‘malédiction des ressources naturelles.’ »

L’édition française sera lancée à la conférence d’Africa Oil & Power qui se déroulera au Cap du 5 au 7 septembre 2018. Le livre peut dors et déjà être commandé sur Amazon, Barnes & Noble et autres distributeurs.

A propos de NJ Ayuk : NJ est un avocat de premier plan dans le domaine de l'énergie et un ardent défenseur des entrepreneurs africains, reconnu comme l'une des figures les plus en vue des entreprises africaines aujourd'hui. Il est un « Global Shaper » avec le Forum économique mondial, l'un des 10 hommes les plus influents de Forbes en Afrique en 2015, et un négociateur renommé dans les secteurs du pétrole et de l'énergie. Il est fondateur et PDG du Centurion Law Group et président actuel de la Chambre africaine de l’énergie.

Big Barrels: Afrikanisches Öl und Gas und das Streben nach Wohlstand

Eine neue Art der Erzählung von afrikanischen Bodenschätzen, die internationale Bücherregale im Sturm erobert*

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA , August 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ein Jahr nach der Erstveröffentlichung in englischer Sprache erscheint nun die deutsche Fassung des internationalen Rohstoff-Bestsellers „Big Barrels: Afrikanisches Öl und Gas und das Streben nach Wohlstand“.

“Die besondere Art der Erzählperspektive führte zum Erfolg dieses Buches", erklärt Autor NJ Ayuk, ein führender Energierechtler und erfolgreicher Anwalt afrikanischer Unternehmer, der heute als eine der wichtigsten Persönlichkeiten der afrikanischen Wirtschaft gilt. "Big Barrels erzählt eine bisher unbekannte Geschichte der afrikanischen Öl- und Gasindustrie, eine Geschichte der positiven Errungenschaften und eine Geschichte der Hoffnung. Denn letztlich ist es die Hoffnung, mit der die afrikanische Ressourcenindustrie auch die Aussichten der afrikanischen Volkswirtschaften und ihrer Menschen verändern muss."

Die englische Version des Buches wurde im Juni 2017 auf der – Africa Oil & Power – Konferenz in Kapstadt veröffentlicht und ist seither ein großer Hit im englischsprachigen Ausland und in Afrika. Das Buch setzt sich mit dem Eindruck auseinander, dass Öl und Gas in Afrika nur Schlechtes bringen, und argumentiert gegen die Wahrnehmung eines solchen "Ressourcenfluchs".

Big Barrels greift auf spezifische Fallstudien aus Ländern wie Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Tansania und Äquatorialguinea zurück, um zu zeigen, wie afrikanische Volkswirtschaften auch positive Schritte bezüglich der Förderung ihrer Öl- und Gasvorkommen eingeleitet haben. Insbesondere wird auf Erfolgsgeschichten wie beispielsweise die gute Regierungsführung in Ghana, Umweltschutz in Gabun sowie Beschäftigung und Unternehmensgründung in Nigeria verwiesen. Auf diese Weise öffnet Big Barrels die Manege für eine afrikanische Perspektive rund um die Öl- und Gasindustrie des Kontinents.

Seit Erstveröffentlichung hat Big Barrels bereits mehrfach in deutschen und internationalen Medien auf sich aufmerksam gemacht, wurde wiederholt in BBC Afrika, CNBC, Forbes Afrika, Bild Zeitung, Financial Afrik, SBC, Deutsche Welle und Voice of America vorgestellt und eingehend diskutiert. In den Worten von Funke Michaels, einer Mason Fellow an der Harvard University: "Ich lerne Leser kennen, die durch dieses Werk ermutigt, ja förmlich befreit wurden von dem Mythos, dass der sogenannte „Ressourcenfluch“ in Afrika unheilbar sei.“

Die deutsche Ausgabe des Buches wird vom 5. bis 7. September 2018 auf der _Africa Oil & Power_ Konferenz in Kapstadt vorgestellt. Das Buch ist bei Amazon, Barnes & Noble und anderen Händlern erhältlich.

Über NJ Ayuk: NJ Ayuk ist führender Energierechtler, erfolgreicher Anwalt afrikanischer Unternehmer und gilt heute als eine der wichtigsten Persönlichkeiten der afrikanischen Wirtschaft. Als Global Shaper des World Economic Forums, von Forbes als einer der zehn einflussreichsten Männer Afrikas in 2015 gekürt sowie als bekannter Dealmaker im Petroleum- und Energiesektor widmet NJ seine Karriere der Unterstützung von Unternehmern und der Karrierebildung von jungen afrikanischen Anwälten.
Als Gründer und CEO der Centurion Law Group, einer panafrikanischen Anwaltskanzlei, bemüht sich NJ um die Sicherstellung der positiven Beeinflussung afrikanischer Gesellschaften durch den Öl- und Gassektor.
NJ Ayuk graduierte an der Universität von Maryland College Park und erwarb einen Juris Doctor am William Mitchell College of Law sowie einen MBA am New York Institute of Technology.

Big Barrels: La nueva narrativa sobre el petróleo y el gas en África que está cautivando los mercados mundiales

Nueva edición traducida al español de "Big Barrels" ya a la venta para ampliar el acceso al libro revolucionario sobre el sector del petróleo y el gas en África

JOHANNESBURG, WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA, August 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Un año después de su lanzamiento, el impulso global creado por el best seller de la industria africana del petróleo y el gas, "Big Barrels: El petróleo y el gas de África y la búsqueda de la prosperidad", ha llevado a su adaptación y relanzamiento en español.

"La libro narra una historia éxito", explica el autor NJ Ayuk, un prominente abogado de energía africano. "Big Barrels cuenta una historia oculta de la industria del petróleo y el gas de África, una que habla de logros positivos y expone la capacidad que una industria tiene para transformar el futuro de las economías y las personas de África".

La versión inglesa del libro fue publicada en junio de 2017 durante el Africa Oil & Power 2017 en Ciudad del Cabo, cosechando desde entonces gran éxito en África y el extranjero, con el objetivo de cambiar la idea de que en África el petróleo y el gas no pueden hacer ningún bien, y argumentando en contra de la percepción de una "maldición de los recursos".

El libro utiliza casos de estudio específicos de países como Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Tanzania y Guinea Ecuatorial para mostrar lo que las naciones africanas han hecho bien con respecto a la explotación de sus recursos de petróleo y gas. En particular, destaca áreas específicas de éxito, incluida la buena gobernanza en Ghana, la gestión ambiental en Gabón y el empleo y la creación de empresas en Nigeria. Al hacerlo, Big Barrels permite a los africanos recuperar efectivamente la narrativa que rodea a su industria de petróleo y gas y abrirla a nuevas voces con una visión constructiva del sector.

Desde su primer lanzamiento, Big Barrels ha recibido una gran atención mediática a nivel mundial, y ha sido citado y debatido reiteradamente en BBC África, CNBC, Forbes África, Bild Zeitung, Financial Afrik, SABC, DW y Voice of America. Como ejemplo el estudiante de Master de la Universidad de Harvard Funke Michaels que en una reseña escribió: "Veo a los lectores alentados por estos casos, y liberados de una vez del mito de que África no puede ser curada de la antigua "maldición de los recursos".

Las nueva edición traducida al español se presentará en el Africa Oil & Power 2018 en Ciudad del Cabo del 5 al 7 de septiembre. El libro se puede encargar en Amazon, Barnes & Noble y otros distribuidores especializados.

Big Barrels: The New Narrative on Africa’s Oil & Gas That Is Captivating Global Markets

New language editions of Big Barrels to hit the shelves in French, Spanish and German and expand access to the revolutionary book on Africa’s oil and gas sector

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA , August 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A year after its release, the global momentum created by the bestseller on Africa’s oil and gas industry, “Big Barrels: African Oil and Gas and the Quest for Prosperity”, has led to its re-launching in French, Spanish and German.

“The narrative of the book makes its success,” explains author NJ Ayuk, a prominent African energy lawyer. “Big Barrels tells a hidden story of Africa’s oil & gas industry, one that speaks of positive achievements and lays out the capabilities such an industry has to transform the future of African economies and people.”

The English version of the book was launched in English in June 2017 at Africa Oil & Power 2017 in Cape Town, and has since become a huge hit in Africa and abroad, taking aim at the perception that in Africa oil and gas can do no good, arguing against the perception of a “resource curse.”

The book uses specific case studies from countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Tanzania and Equatorial Guinea to showcase what African nations have done right with regards to exploiting their oil and gas resources. It notably highlights specific areas of success including good governance in Ghana, environmental stewardship in Gabon and employment and enterprise creation in Nigeria. In doing so, Big Barrels effectively allows Africans to recapture the narrative surrounding their oil & gas industry, and open it up to non-cursing, African voices.

Since its first launch, Big Barrels has received extensive global media attention, being notably repeatedly featured and debated over on BBC Africa, CNBC, Forbes Africa, Bild Zeitung, Financial Afrik, SABC, DW and Voice of America. As Funke Michaels, a Mason Fellow at Harvard University, said in a review, “I see readers coming away encouraged by these cases, and effectively freed from the myth that Africa cannot be cured of the age-old “resource curse.”

The new languages editions of the book will be launched at Africa Oil & Power 2018 in Cape Town from Sept. 5-7. The book can be ordered from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other retailers.

We must focus on increasing both gender and racial diversity in order to foster more innovation and more inclusion in technology.”

— Natasha Ravinand

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL, US, August 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reliabilityweb.com®, the leader in discovering and delivering effective approaches to making asset managers, reliability leaders and maintenance professionals safer and more successful, announced at MaximoWorld™ that their 2nd annual Women in Reliability and Asset Management (WIRAM) meeting was a ringing success with over seventy women representing some of the world’s leading asset-intensive organizations.

Backed by meeting advocates, Interloc and Intel®, this professional peer group was hosted by Maura Abad, Director of WIRAM. The group was founded to promote the power, communication, and integrity of women in the area of reliability and asset management, and to provide a forum to connect, share best practices and create awareness for women in the industry.

“MaximoWorld once again provided the perfect backdrop for women in our industry to gather and energize their thoughts, roles, and bottom-line benefits they are bringing to their organization,” said Abad.

This year’s WIRAM special luncheon speaker was Natasha Ravinand, author of “Girls with Dreams;” Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) advocate; writer; and a high school student based in Southern California. Ravinand addressed the audience on the importance of women leadership and role models in STEM. She commented, “Women, and especially those of color, comprise a small fraction of workers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related fields. We must focus on increasing both gender and racial diversity in order to foster more innovation and more inclusion in technology. However, it’s also incredibly important to make technical leadership roles more accessible for women. If more women begin excelling in positions of influence in STEM, gender biases against women in technology will begin to fade. In addition, young girls will have role models to look up to, making it more likely for them to pursue technical careers when of age.”

Guyana Goldstrike Reports Second Gold Discovery at Marudi Gold Project

Assays Significant Gold Values, More Assays Pending

Guyana Goldstrike Inc. (TSX:GYA)

VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON, CANADA, August 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Guyana Goldstrike Inc. (the “Company” or “Guyana Goldstrike”) (TSXV: GYA,FSE:1ZT) is pleased to report initial assays from Trench TTR-18-6 at the Toucan Ridge area on its Marudi Gold Project ("Marudi" or the "Property") located in the Guiana Gold Belt, Guyana, South America.

Locke Goldsmith M Sc. P Eng. P Geo., VP Exploration states, “Our trenching at Toucan Ridge has been extremely consistent and favorable given that the initial trenches in this area have exposed quartzite-metachert – the host rock for gold mineralization. The initial assays from trench TTR-18-6 have now confirmed the presence of significant gold values in the host rock.”

Mr. Goldsmith continues, “This discovery has a number of important characteristics: First, the initial area of interest at Toucan Ridge extends for a length of 1.75 kilometres and therefore the potential for a mineralized zone of substantial size exists; second, significant values of gold at surface in the host rock is a leading indicator suggesting that gold may also be present at depth and deserving of priority drill testing; and third, the close proximity of Toucan Ridge to the Property’s two mineralized zones is important in terms of logistics, as it is one kilometre east of Marudi North and one kilometre north of Mazoa Hill, which contains the Property’s current mineral resource estimate.”

(For more information on the company’s current mineral resource estimate and the Marudi Gold Project, please see “About the Marudi Gold Project” below.)

Toucan Ridge Trench TTR-18-6 Highlights

A total of 90.40 metres was trenched in TTR-18-6 and 33 samples were taken for fire assay. Of these, eight were re-assayed for total metallic content with results returned as high as 1.53 g/t gold.

Additional assay results are currently pending from TTR-18-6.

Trenching Exploration Program and Significant Gold Discoveries

To date, the company has trenched four areas of interest: Paunch, Pancake, Marudi-North West Extension and Toucan Ridge.

In May 2018, trenching samples from the Paunch area returned the trenching program’s first significant gold discovery with high-grade assay results of 5.98 g/t and 7.45 g/t gold over 2 metres respectively.

(See news release dated May 15, 2018: “Guyana Goldstrike Assays up to 7.45 g/t in New Discovery of Gold Mineralization at Paunch Area, Marudi Gold Project, Guyana” ; and

news release dated May 30, 2018: “Guyana Goldstrike Continues with Gold Discovery: Assays up to 5.98 g/t Gold at Paunch Area, Marudi Gold Project, Guyana”)

Toucan Ridge Area Location and Trenching

The initial area of trenching at Toucan Ridge began on the western end with trench TTR-18-05 which is located approximately one kilometre east of the Marudi North zone and one kilomtetre north of the Mazoa Hill zone. The Mazoa Hill zone contains the project’s current mineral resource estimate: 259,100 indicated gold ounces within 4,428,000 tonnes grading 1.8 grams/tonne (g/t) and 86,200 inferred gold ounces within 1,653,000 tonnes grading 1.60 grams/tonne (g/t).

The Toucan Ridge area of interest continues for more than 1.75 kilometres to the east of the first trench – TTR-18-05. Trench sites are planned along the length of the ridge 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 of this year and returned the Company’s first significant gold discovery and approximately 350 metres north of alluvial workings at Toucan Creek.

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 is unique in that it has an 18-year mining license in good standing, all-season road access, infrastructure in place, with an established mining camp serviced by employees, service buildings, and a full-time mining manager. The Property has three known gold bearing areas, specifically 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. 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 grams/tonne (g/t) and 86,200 inferred gold ounces within 1,653,000 tonnes grading 1.60 grams/tonne (g/t). There exists excellent exploration upside through the development of previously identified mineralized bedrock targets on the Project.
