NEW YORK, January 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Gold prices have been increasing lately, and on Monday the U.S. gold futures were up 0.5 percent reaching $1,201.80 per ounce. This is a reaction to several political and macroeconomic concerns that drive demand for the safe-haven metal, including renewed Brexit worries as well as uncertainties related to the USA Presidential economic plans. As for the upcoming Presidential inauguration, Reuters reported, "Investors have been enticed into gold this month as questions over Federal Reserve policy and the Trump administration drive a bigger than usual January bounce in a beaten-down market… Hedge funds and money managers in the week to Jan. 10 raised their net long position in COMEX gold contracts for the first time in nine weeks, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) data showed on Friday."

Various news outlets in the United Kingdom are interpreting Prime Minister Theresa May's speech as planting the seed for a "hard" exit from the European Union, leaving the European single market as well. The Single Market refers to the EU as one territory without any internal borders or other regulatory obstacles to the free movement of goods and services. Investors and traders have expressed concerns that such measures may result in destabilizing the economy for the UK, EU and eventually the world.

Three splits from one high grade sample (M253097) were re-analyzed for Ag by Fire Assay and 4Acid digestion assay. The repeat analyses indicate the original fire assay result was biased low. For gold, replicate analyses by fire assay with gravimetric finish verify the initial reported result by FA-ICP. Check assays for lead show that for samples with > 5% Pb the 4Acid "near-total" digestion technique is not appropriate, as it shows a significantly low bias, and that an Aqua Regia digestion or Peroxide Fusion assay is required for full Pb recovery. No bias was detected in the analyses for zinc and copper. In summary, check assays returned much higher values for silver and lead.
The Company will resume May-Mac Mine underground diamond drilling by Jan. 21th, 2017 from drill station #3, followed by stations #2 and #1…The Company is preparing additional requested backup information to support its permit application submitted last November.
