For the full year, the company produced a total of 23,832 ounces of gold in 2020, which is within its annual guidance range of between 23,000 and 26,000 ounces. The company produced a total 25,750 ounces of gold last year and over the last 10 years has produced an average of approximately 23,800 ounces per year. Lombardo Paredes, president of Caldas Gold, commenting on the company's latest results, said: "We continued to gain momentum in the fourth quarter of 2020 with the implementation of the optimized mine plan in the existing upper mining operation and commencement of the plant expansion that will increase capacity from 1,200 tonnes per day (tpd) to 1,500 tpd by the third quarter this year. While 2020 had its challenges, having to adapt our operations to cope with COVID-19, we successfully kept our operations going throughout the year. We have also commenced preparatory activities related to the expansion of our underground mining operations into the Marmato Deep zone (MDZ) while we await completion of the Marmato mining title extension, expected later this month as recently announced. Our ongoing drilling campaign in the MDZ continues to demonstrate Marmato's prowess as a rare world-class system, both in terms of its size and grades, and we expect to have further results available shortly from our fourth quarter program. At the end of December, we had an unrestricted cash position of approximately $32-million (U.S.) and a total of approximately $240-million (U.S.) of funds being held in escrow from the gold notes offering and the Aris Gold private placement together with the Wheaton stream financing, all of which will become available to us to fund the MDZ project following the mining title extension... 2. Caldas Gold Corp. has received official notification from the Agencia Nacional de Mineria (ANM) confirming approval of the technical information related to its request for a 30-year extension of its Marmato mining contract 014-89M. With the economic conditions and technical approval now complete, the company and the ANM are finalizing the legal documents for the mining title extension. The company expects that the extension process will be completed before the end of January at which time it will proceed with the closing of the Aris Gold transaction. About Caldas Gold Corp.

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. ==

Had $90M cash 2021-01-13 07:24 ET - News Release Mr. Lombardo Paredes reports GRAN COLOMBIA REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2020 GOLD PRODUCTION; MEETS ANNUAL GUIDANCE FOR FIFTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR Gran Colombia Gold Corp. produced a total of 19,958 ounces of gold in December, 2020, bringing the total for the fourth quarter of 2020 to 57,265 ounces compared with 65,237 ounces in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the full year, the Company produced a total of 220,194 ounces of gold in 2020, which is within its annual guidance range of between 218,000 and 226,000 ounces. Two thousand twenty was the fifth consecutive year that the company has met or exceeded its annual production guidance. The company produced a total of 239,991 ounces of gold in 2019. Lombardo Paredes, chief executive officer of Gran Colombia, commenting on the company's latest results, said: "Our Segovia operations had another steady quarter, finishing the year within guidance as expected. We have now produced a total of approximately 1.3 million ounces of gold from Segovia in the 10 years since we acquired the mining title and the head grade has averaged 13.8 g/t over that period of time, establishing Segovia as one of the highest-grade underground global gold mines, as further evidenced by the recently announced high-grade intercepts from our ongoing drilling program. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we continued the ongoing development of our mines at Segovia and in December, we commenced production activities at our fourth mine, Carla, which is expected to ramp up further during the first half of 2021. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we used our free cash flow to fund investments in private placements completed by Caldas Gold and ESV Resources in the amount of $17-million and $3-million, respectively, to fund the repurchases of 484,100 common shares for cancellation at a cost of approximately $2.9-million, to pay dividends totalling $1.9-million to our shareholders and to fund the principal and interest payments on our debt of approximately $5.5-million. At the end of December, 2020, Gran Colombia had a cash position of approximately $90-million (U.S.). "The Marmato operations continued to gain momentum in the fourth quarter of 2020 with the implementation of the optimized mine plan in the existing upper mining operations and commencement of the planned plant expansion to be completed in the third quarter of 2021. Preparatory activities are under way related to the expansion of underground mining operations into the Marmato Deep zone (MDZ) as Caldas Gold awaits the extension of its Marmato mining title, expected to be completed later this month. Caldas Gold is also currently working closely with the management of Aris Gold to prepare for a smooth transition to the new board and management of Caldas Gold once the title extension is completed. At that time, Gran Colombia's interest in the new Aris Gold Corp. will be approximately 44.3 per cent on an undiluted basis." > more: https://www.stockwatch.com/News/Item?bid=Z-C:GCM-3016226&symbol=GCM&region=C

  11. EXN ... update: C$3.46 Excellon reports strong Q4 production, annual output down 18% Excellon Resources (TSX:EXN) announced Thursday fourth quarter and annual 2020 production results from the Platosa mine in Durango, Mexico. The company said that its silver-equivalent ("AgEq") production in Q4 2020 increased by 18% to 556,332 AgEq oz compared to Q4 2019 (469,707 AgEq oz). Full-year 2020 production of 1,639,310 AgEq oz was 18% lower than 2,002,036 AgEq oz produced in 2019, due to the COVID-19-related suspension mandated by the Government of Mexico from April 2nd to June 1st. "Our Platosa Mine continued to deliver strong production in Q4 2020 after our restart of operations in late Q2, with another quarter of near record mined and milled tonnage," stated President and CEO Brendan Cahill. "The numerous improvements we have made to the operation are bearing fruit and we continue to identify additional areas for optimization. We look forward to a strong 2021 and yet higher silver prices to come," continued Cahill. Excellon is advancing a precious metals growth pipeline that includes: Platosa, Mexico's highest-grade silver mine since production commenced in 2005; Kilgore, a high quality gold development project in Idaho; and an option on Silver City, a high-grade epithermal silver district in Saxony, Germany with 750 years of mining history and no modern exploration. > https://www.kitco.com/news/2021-01-14/Excellon-reports-strong-Q4-production-annual-output-down-18.html

  13. Wow! What a great day for our new stock ! MCI / Minnova ... from April 2020 / Last: $0.36 +0.11, +44% We took a small share in the placement, being done at a net price of 20 cents So the C$600 investment (3,000 MCI shares) Is now worth x $0.36=. $1,080: +$480 (ignoring the wts.) That's up 80% from our cost. However, this investment will be subject to a 4 months hold from the closing of the placement.
