2021-02-02 19:06 ET - News Release

Mr. Serafino Iacono reports


Caldas Gold Corp. has received official notification from the Agencia Nacional de Mineria (ANM) confirming that the 30-year extension of its Marmato mining contract 014-89M has been approved and has been registered in the Colombian National Mining Registry.

Serafino Iacono, chairman and chief executive officer of Caldas Gold, said: "We are very pleased to announce the successful conclusion of the mining title extension process. Marmato is a world-class project and our significant investment in the future expansion of its underground mining operations will benefit all stakeholders including our investors, the nation of Colombia, the department of Caldas and the local community at Marmato. We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all those who were involved in this process over the last two years, including the minister of mines and the president and staff of the ANM."

About Caldas Gold Corp. / "... change in the company's name to Aris Gold."

Caldas Gold is a Canadian junior mining company currently advancing a major expansion and modernization of its underground mining operations at its Marmato project in the department of Caldas, Colombia. Caldas Gold also owns 100 per cent of the Juby project, an advanced exploration-stage gold project located within the Shining Tree area in the southern part of the Abitibi greenstone belt about 100 kilometres south-southeast of the Timmins gold camp. On Nov. 23, 2020, Caldas Gold announced it had entered into a transaction with a group of investors, principally referred by Aris Gold Corp., that resulted in an $85-million (Canadian) private placement completed on Dec. 3, 2020, and will result in changes to the management and the board of directors of the company as well as a change in the company's name to Aris Gold. The net proceeds of the Aris Gold private placement, the management and board changes and the company name change will all occur once certain escrow release conditions are met, including completion of the Marmato mining title extension.

Rather spectacular Drill results !   (78.1 x3.43= A 267.9g "Boxer")
"Larger High-grade system than previously envisioned"

  Aris Gold drills 78.1 m of 3.43 g/t Au at Marmato

Aris Gold Corp. has released high-grade gold intercepts over broad widths at the Marmato mine in Colombia.

The 2020/2021 drill program that began in May, 2020, at Marmato comprises 60 holes totalling 35,000 metres and is now approximately 50 per cent complete. Drilling to date has demonstrated high-grade mineralization over broad widths, demonstrating potential to extend the 13-year mine life outlined in the company's prefeasibility study dated Sept. 18, 2020, with an effective date of March 17, 2020.

The principal objective of the drill campaign is to convert inferred mineral resources to indicated mineral resources. In addition to the Deep zone, the campaign is also testing the newly discovered Fortaleza zones A and B to the north, which opens up a new area that will require further drilling to evaluate its potential.

Aris Gold chief executive officer Neil Woodyer commented: "Our ongoing drill program at Marmato continues to deliver on our objective of adding to the already large gold inventory and 13-year mine life. Drilling in the Deep zone is demonstrating potential for a larger, higher-grade system than previously envisioned. In addition, drilling on the newly discovered Fortaleza zones to the north confirms a prospective new area worthy of additional testing."

. . .


The continuing 2020/2021 drilling campaign has been successful in showing higher-grade mineralization over broad widths in the Main zone (MZ) below the 500-metre level and in the New zone (NZ) above the 500-metre level, which strengthens the probability of adding a significant amount of mineral resources to the current inventory. The higher-grade shell is defined as greater than 2.5 g/t Au and lies within the grade shell of 1.7 g/t Au used to build the geological model of the Deep zone (MDZ).

Infill drilling in the MZ has extended the higher-grade mineralization over broad widths down to the 400-metre level, well below the 500-metre level that is the bottom of the indicated mineral resource, and remains open at depth. Drill holes MT-IU-75 and MT-IU-078 confirm that the MZ is branching into three separate bodies (A, B and C) to the southeast with the three reporting higher-grade mineralization over broad widths. Drill hole MT-IU-075 intersected 39.75 m at 2.35 g/t Au in the Main zone A, 21.84 m at 2.07 g/t Au and 19.90 m at 1.94 g/t Au in the Main zone B, and 13.17 m at 3.35 g/t Au in the Main zone C. Drill hole MT-IU-078 intersected 26.45 m at 2.83 g/t Au in the Main zone A, 36.20 m at 3.68 g/t Au in the Main zone B and 51.40 m at 2.46 g/t Au in the Main zone C.

Two wildcat drill holes, MT-IU-077 and MT-IU-079, were successful in intersecting higher-grade zones over broader widths compared with previous drilling in the Fortaleza zones A and B, which opens a new area that requires further drilling to fully evaluate its potential. Drill hole MT-IU-077 intersected 35.65 m at 2.82 g/t Au and 76.65 m at 1.93 g/t Au in Fortaleza zones A and B

Following the launch of Aris Gold on Feb. 4, 2021, management embarked on an active investor marketing program to build brand awareness, increase visibility and, importantly, increase share trading activity. The marketing program has included numerous calls and meetings with U.S. and Canadian shareholders, bank analysts, bank and brokerage house sales desks, newsletter writers, and media. Since Feb. 4, 2021, the company has also attended a number of mining investment conferences, including the BMO Global Metals and Mining Conference and the Red Cloud Pre-PDAC Conference in March, and the World Gold Forum during the second week of April. Finally, there has been significant public disclosure, both in press releases and in the company's Canadian regulatory filings, summarizing the company's successes, plans and strategy.

As part of its investor relations program, Aris Gold retained Red Cloud Financial Services, a full-service broker/dealer offering investor outreach, non-deal marketing, research coverage and investment banking/advisory services to Canadian mining companies. Aris Gold management has made several presentations to Red Cloud's team and clients, including a webinar on April 15 that was widely viewed by retail and institutional shareholders. Red Cloud also published a research report on Aris Gold on April 5, 2021, which summarized the company's annual financial results, and was exclusively distributed to Red Cloud's client base, which includes over 300 institutional accounts, 1,500 retail brokers, 150 private equity groups and 250 strategic mining investors.

Aris Gold also engaged Wealth Research Group LLC, an independent media company, to provide marketing services with a one-time media campaign.


Probably it is going to take some strong volume like that, to get past the 50-53% barrier.

The key achievement of 2020 was the creation of Aris Gold as an independent public company with a strong financial platform to finance growth. During 2021, the focus shifts to improving the operating performance of the Marmato Upper zone mine and to starting to realize the potential of the Marmato Deep zone by starting the development of a new MDZ underground mine and constructing a new processing facility in fourth quarter.

Marmato -- Upper zone operations

During 2021, Aris Gold expects steady improvements of Marmato's current operations through implementation of comprehensive work force training and redirecting site-level operation management while concurrently improving health, safety and environmental performance.

During the continuing modernization and expansion phase of the Marmato mine, the company anticipates elevated AISC (all-in sustaining cost) per ounce due to increased investments in sustaining capital. During 2020, sustaining capital expenditures totalled $6.4-million or $268 per oz sold, and included $4.0-million or $168 per oz sold related to mine infrastructure improvements and equipment. The Marmato mine has been in operation since 1991, and investments are planned to refurbish Upper zone operations in advance of the large-scale MDZ expansion project expected to start in Q4 2021.

Marmato -- developing the MDZ

During 2021, Aris Gold's primary focus is the scheduled start of the Marmato Deep zone project in Q4. The Marmato project team is implementing a comprehensive development plan that includes completing optimization studies, completing the 35,000-metre drill program and subsequently updating the mineral resource and reserve estimates, engaging an EPCM (engineering procurement and construction management) contractor, completing FEL3 design, amending the environmental management plan, and continuing to advance health, safety and community support programs.

Corporate growth strategy

On Feb. 4, 2021, the company changed its name to Aris Gold Corp. in association with the appointment of the current board and management team and the expansion of the corporate growth strategy with the vision of building Aris Gold into its next globally relevant gold producer.

Aris Gold is pursuing a growth strategy of acquiring operating gold mines and projects nearing construction with the goal of creating value through adding scale and diversification. Aris Gold has a solid foundation and experienced team to implement its growth plans.

Lucky timing on ARIS.t: $1.71 +0.26, +18%.  update


I picked up shares two days ago, and it popped by almost 20% today.  NEWS at last !


2021-11-11 07:00 C:ARIS 1.45 News Release Aris Gold Announces Plans to Start Marmato Lower Mine Construction and Reports Increased Mineral Resource Estimate
2021-11-10 17:47 C:ARIS 1.45 News Release Aris Gold earns $6.04-million (U.S.) in Q3

A 35,000-metre drill program began in May 2020, following completion of the Marmato Expansion Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) led by SRK Consulting. The drill program had two objectives: (1) convert Inferred mineral resources to the Indicated category; and (2) test potential areas at depth and along strike.

Between May 2020 and June 30, 2021, results were received for 43 holes totalling 27,737 metres, or approximately 80% of the total program.

The new holes infilled existing drilling in the lower eastern half of the Marmato Lower Mine, converting Inferred mineral resources to Indicated, and expanded the mineral resource at depth and towards the east. The drill results demonstrate continuity of grades and widths and confirm the quality and interpretation of the mineralized zones, currently extending 800 metres vertically from 1,000 metres to 200 metres elevation, and along strike for over 950 metres.

The drill program is ongoing and since June 30, 2021, eight more holes (4,543 metres) have been drilled and a further six holes are in progress.

The Marmato deposit is still open with high-grade mineralization along strike and at depth with opportunities for further growth. Additional drill programs are in the planning stage.

With an effective date of June 30, 2021, the updated mineral resource estimate (MRE) is as follows:

Measured and Indicated mineral resources of 5.8 Moz gold comprised of 56.9 million tonnes at 3.2 g/t gold, representing a 42% increase in contained gold ounces from the PFS MRE; and

Inferred mineral resources of 2.6 Moz gold comprised of 30.8 million tonnes at 2.6 g/t gold, representing an 18% increase in contained gold ounces from the PFS MRE.

... (An earlier version of the Release said they were beginning construction of the new mine):

Construction of the new camp and administrative areas is scheduled to begin in late November 2021 followed by the new portal and decline to begin in December 2021. The Lower Mine project includes a new decline and a 4,000 tonne per day (tpd) processing facility to expand on the existing Upper Mine operations
